I do hope you have enjoyed what Robbie & I have shared with you over the last few months.  Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my FB Page.  It’s always so appreciated.

For the month of April, we are showcasing the lovely Oceanfront Stamp Set.  You need this set in your collection, believe me!

This set makes it so easy to create lovely projects with minimum supplies & effort!

Belle & I were out & about early on our walk this morning.  In fact, it was still dark when we left home, but by the time we hit the beach, I was struck with the most amazing sunrise with the sun just starting to appear.  Can I just say, most days the sunrise is amazing but some more so than others.

As I sat down to create my card, I knew I wanted to try & capture the image into my card.  I think I have!

The circle was die cut with the Layering Circles Dies before being embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  To create the scene, the images were stamped onto a piece of Bsaic White Cardstock before being adhered to the back of the circle.

The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set.

Supplies –

Stamp Set – Oceanfront, Inspired Thoughts

Inks – Memento Tuxedo Black, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral

Cardstock – Basic White, Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral

Seas the Day

G’Day Friends,

It’s Wednesday which means Robbie & myself are hopping Across the Waves with a Mini Blog Hop.

This is where we get to share 2 projects created with a nominated Stamp Set or Bundle.

Throughout March we wil be sharing projects created with the gorgeous Seas the Day Bundle.  It’s from the current January-June Mini Catalogue.

I will be honest & say that this Bundle has been sitting on my shelf since my pre-order BUT now that I’ve had a play, I can see myself playing lots over the next few days & weeks.  The images & dies are to “die” for.

You may recognise my card from the Catalogue, as I decided to case the card on P38 but with my own spin on things.

There is a lot of sponging going on with my card but nevertheless, I am happy with it all.  It may look a lot but believe me, it didn’t take long at all.  In fact, I am thinking seriously of creating a video in the next couple of days on how I’ve actually created it, so stay tuned.

Edit – This is the video created to show how I created my card.

Supplies –

Stamp Set – Seas the Day

Inks – Pale Papaya, Old Olive, So Saffron, Balmy Blue

Cardstock – Thick Basic White, Basic White

Dies – Sea Dies

Embellishments – Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials

Celebrate Sunflowers

G’Day Friends,

I know what you are thinking?  Why am I posting on a Sunday?  Well, I did a FB Live in my group on Thursday & I thought I would share it with you, even though it is a simple & easy one but hey, who can go past Sunflowers or in the case of the 2nd card – Daisies or Gerberas?

These are the measurements I gave the group so that they could stamp along with me.

This is my first card I created used Daffodil Delight, Basic White, Smokey Slate & Shaded Spruce.  For those that know me, it isn’t very often I create 2 of the same card.

I then decided to switch it around a little by changing out the colours to Fresh Freesia, Basic White, Soft Sea Foam & Grey Granite.  I also decided to go with the original sketch layout – see above.  This way I get 2 different cards but using the same layout & supplies!

Why not give the sketch layout a go.  It is one that you can use over & over again & not think it the same layout.

Out of the 3 creations I’ve shared with you this week, I think this is my favourite.  Not for any particular reason but only because of the bright colours, which by the way are way out of my comfort zone!  What do you think?

I’ve kept the card pretty clean & simple with just a little bit of scoring down the left side.  I wanted the colours & flowers to pop so that you could see how lovely this set really is.

The sentiment is from the lovely Special Moments Stamp Set which is Level 2 from Sale-a-Bration & could be yours too when spending $180AUD.

Supplies –

Stamp Set – Flowing Flowers, Special Moments

Inks – Polished Pink, Coastal Cabana, So Saffron

Flowing Flowers – Make n Take #3

G’Day Friends,

Today is Make n Take #3 which I created from Robbie’s lovely creation.

The Flowing Flowers is such a gorgeous Stamp Set with lots of possibilities & is available in the new January-June Mini Catalogue.  It is fast becoming one of my favourites.

I’ve used the Sponge Daubers to create my card along with the colors of Flirty Flamingo, Gorgeous Grape, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive Inks.  The colours are way out of my comfort zone but I must admit that I’ve enjoyed creating with them & am loving the end result.

Did I mention the lovely sentiments & fonts that are available in this set too?

Feature of the Week – Simply Marbleous DSP #1

I do hope you have all had a great weekend.  If you are anywhere near the waters, please take care.

Thank you to everyone who reached out asking if I was ok & yes all is good as we have not been affected.

I have been playing with the lovely Simply Marbleous DSP from Sale-a-Bration of late & am loving the colours & patterns although I seem to be gearing towards the one side in particular.

This Paper is Level 1 which you can earn for FREE when spending $90!

Not only will I be showcasing the papers, but I will also be showcasing the ever so versatile Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set – perfect for all occasions especially Manly Monday!

First up I had to decide what colours I could use with the Smokey Slate sheet of Paper so I opted for Daffodil Delight, Garden Green with Basic White tossed in too.  Way out of my comfort zone but hey it is always good to try new combinations.

The DSP was randomly chopped into 3 pieces before adhering to a piece of Garden Green Cardstock ensuring that the patterns match in & leaving a small amount of Garden Green around all sides.  This layer was then adhered to a Smokey Slate Base Card.

I stamped a sentiment from Inspired Thoughts onto scrap Basic White with Smokey Slate Ink prior to die cutting with the Messages Dies & adhering to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped an image from Enjoy the Moment Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight Ink prior to fussy cutting, trimming part of the stem a little & adhering to the top of the sentiment shape with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

To finish the card, I grabbed a couple of the new Classic Matte Dots which are available in the new Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue & adhered these to the front.  I think they finished the card off perfectly.

I wasn’t too sure how this colour combination would work but I have to admit I think they work in well together, don’t you?

Need supplies to create today’s project at home?  Don’t forget to use January’s Host Code – GBDGREJN –  if your order is under $250.   All orders receive a PDF Tutorial & a Handmade Card from me.
