Narrow Note Cards

G’Day stampers,

I have been playing with the cute little Narrow Note Cards along with the Petal Passion DSP both from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  They are perfect for quick, easy cards.

I cut a piece of the DSP, coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combos of Rich Razleberry, Old Olive & Daffodil Delight (leaves). cut the DSP back to the size, adhered to a piece of Rich Razzleberry & then to the front of the Note Card.  I didn’t worry about a sentiment on the front as I like them the way they are.

How easy is that?  Do you have them on your wish list?

Until next time, Happy Stampin’



Wood Words – Thank You


I created a couple of Thank You Cards last week for my customers of which most have already been posted (forgot to take photos) but I do have a couple that I will use for the remainder of September.  I’ve used the Wood Words Stamp Set.

Wood-Words---Lemon-Lime-TwiThey were all created with the 2017-2019 In Colours & the lovely fantastic Note Cards & Envelopes – Whisper White, Page 195 of the Annual Catalogue.  Along with the In Colours I also used Sahara Sand which worked perfectly with the colours.  I am loving these for quick & simple cards.

The first lot of cards sent out were stamped directly onto the Note Card itself while the next lot of cards had a layer of contrasting In Colour CS.  My samples today have Lemon Lime Twist & Berry Burst.

All I did was randomly stamp my images in Sahara Sand & Lemon Lime Twist onto a piece of Whisper White CS.  The sentiment is from the same set & stamped direct onto the Card in Lemon Lime Twist.  I then layered it onto a piece of Lemon Lime Twist CS beforeWood-Words---Berry-Burst adhering to the Note Card.

My 2nd card I am showing you is the Berry Burst one which was created exactly the same way.

I repeated the same process for the other cards but substituting the In-Colours each time.

I’m not too sure which one is my favourite as I am loving these In-Colours.  Which is your favourite?

Until next time, Happy Stampin!



Summer Note Cards

With summer being around the corner in Australia (well, we don’t really have winter where I am), I thought I would share with you a small sneak peek at one of the cute sets from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! 2016 Holiday Catalogue.  It is one of my favourite perks about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, being able to see and order new product before it’s released!  AND believe me, the new Holiday Catalogue will not disappoint.

The little Cards are about 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ in size.  Enough to write a small note to accompany the new Catalogues.

I sponged Crumb Cake onto a piece of Whisper White Card for the sand & then Soft Sky for the Sky.  I wanted the sponging to be very light so that I could still write on the card.

For all my little cards, I stamped the Umbrella from the “Day by the Beach” Stamp Set directly onto the card in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I then stamped it again onto scrap Whisper White Card before colouring  with my Blender Pen, Watermelon Wonder, Daffodil Delight & Marina Mist Inks.  The top of the umbrella was fussy cut prior to layering onto the Sponged Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then stamped the Starfish, Bucket & Spade, Thongs (love that we now have a pair of thongs in our collection) & Hat Images onto scrap Whisper White Card in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink & coloured with Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight & Watermelon Wonder Inks along with my Blender Pen.

The images were fussy cut & adhered to the Card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The cards were then layered onto a piece of Soft Sky Card.

I think they represent our Australian summer to a “T”, but would love to hear what you think?

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Stampin’ Up! Note Cards….

The challenge over at Late Nite Stampers is to creste a card, 3-D Project, srcapbook page, etc using the colours of –

Aren’t these lovely colours?  I know myself, I can’t get enough of Pink Pirouette & have to stop myself from using it everytime I go to create a card.  Seeing these colours brings so many possibilities to mind, but sat myself down & created a small set of Note Cards.

This challenge come at the right moment as I am out of Note Cards.  I don’t know about anyone else, but I LOVE these little cards.  I would quiet happily sit all day & create sets of these.  They come in so handy too as I use them for everything & always have a stack sitting in my envelope drawer….

I created 6 in all, 2 in Lucky Limeade, 2 in Pink Pirouette & 2 in Rich Razzleberry.  I thought about doing more, but I like to mix them up a bit, so was happy with the 6.  I also brought the 3 colours together with the inks.

Of course, the easy instructions for you to copy & print to create your own, which
should take you all of about 10m

Summer Solstice Note Cards

Note Cards…

… are one thing I do use a lot of.  It seems everytime I turn around, I am just about out of them & find it is time to create more.

For this lot, I thought I would try something a little different.  I have been cleaning out my cardstock & putting all my bits & pieces in their rightful home, when I come across a couple of small pieces of Acetate.  So instead of tossing it out, I thought“why not“.  Grabbed the Stamp Set French Foliage which was still sitting on my desk from 2 projects ago & decided to go with the Regals Collection seeing as though we are in Autumn in Australia.

For my cards I used Night of Navy, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler, Bravo Burgundy, Elegant Eggplant, & Always Artichoke Cardstock as my outer layers.  I must apologise I don’t have the measurements, as they have been used & posted.  They will fit the Australian size C6 or 11B envelopes with the coloured Cardstock measuing 5 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.

I randomly cut all 6 pieces of Whisper White Cardstock donw the left hand side,so that I had 2 pieces of Card & ensuring I still had room to write on the cards once they were all put together.

I randomly stamped the pieces of Acetate with Staz-On Ink.  When stamping onto Acetate, stamp very carefully so as not to let the stamp slip or slide.  I set each piece aside allowing to dry & prior to cutting.

Once dry, I cut the Acetate into 1″ strips & adhered to the pieces of Whisper White Cardstock before adhering to the Coloured Cardstock.

Wow, when I read that, they would of taken me all up 5 minutes.  Believe me, they took a little longer than that!

Until next time, Happy Stampin’!


Note Cards…

I had to quickly make a couple of cards the other day.  I love these for notes to friends or customers.

I decided to use the current “IN Colours” & Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp Set, along with my Aqua Painter.  This is the end result.

Coloured Card – 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Whisper White Card – 3 3/8″ x 5 3/8″
I stamped the images onto Whisper White using my Versamark Ink Pad.  After applying White Embossing Powder over the images, I heated these with my Heat Tool.
I then decided to colour the flower images using my Aqua Painter & to match the inks with the “In Colour” Cardstock
Once dry, I adhered the Whisper White to the Coloured Card Stock.
All in all, a great way to create some quick cards.  In fact, they were posted the same day & now it is back to the drawing board for more ideas.
Supplies –
Stamp Set – Fifth Avenue Floral
Inks – Blusing Bride, Peach Parfait, Concord Crush, Poppy Parade, Versamark
Cardstock – Whisper White, Poppy Parade, Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait, Concord Crush
Accessories – Embossing Powder – White, Snail Glue, Aqua Painter, Heat Tool

Hello Again….

Hello Again….
How many of us say this greeting without realising it!  Well I’ve just used that exact stamp set from the NEW SU Summer Mini Catalogue.  This time, I’ve created a couple of small note cards which I am making for a friend to use as quick notes….

 I am going to use both the stamp set & wheel for our next Scrapbook meting

A Note to Say….

Today’s Project…

Hi Friends,
I have been having little plays again & come up with a little pressie for a friend.  I know she doesn’t look on here, so am safe to post.
The only part of the project is the stamp set “Just Beachy” from Stampin’ Up! but I just love the paper, which I have had sitting in my supplies for about a month now & thought it time it got used.
2010 Calendar
Note Cards
Calendar, Box & Cards
This little calendar is in the shape of a card, but will stand on your desk by itself.  I have used one for years & always make myself one each year.  I also made a lot for little xmas pressies this year.
I have also made little envelopes to match the note cards, but you are unable to see them in the picture.
