In our live last night, we had a bit of a play with a Sketch Layout using the lovely Happiness Abounds Stamp Set along with the Hues of Happiness DSP.

The layout is one I’ve had sitting in my Sketch Layout Book for a little while & thought it would be fun to see what everyone comes up with using the layout.

I’ve used our Sponge Daubers to colour the flowers which have been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Go To Greetings

G’Day Friends.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Today, I have a “bits & pieces” project to share with you.  It is one that I’ve created with a a little this & a little that rejected from other projects.  Now, in saying that it wasn’t because I didn’t like them, they just didn’t go with the final project or looked a little out of place.

I will also admit that I am not good at going back using up bits & pieces.  With me, they either get used for that particular project or they end up in the bin!

The paper is from the now retired Waves of the Ocean DSP while the leaf is from Palms Dies & die cut with Granny Apple Green.

The daisy has been punched with the Medium Daisy Punch from Basic White Cardstock, sponged with Pacific Point Ink & a Sponge Dauber.

Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop – May 2022

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for joining me today.  Once again I am joining Kylie & Bruno’s  Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Monthly Team Blog Hop although it has been a couple of months!

We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® business and to reach goals we have set ourselves.  Your support is really appreciated.

You may be starting here – Vicky Wright – or have come from another blog – either way you can find the Blog Roll at the bottom of this post.  By clicking on the links, you are sure not to miss out on lots of inspiration for your next project.

As these will be my customer Thank You cards, I wanted to keep my card fairly simple while at the same time create a bit of a WOW.  I then went for Friends are Like Seashells Stamp Set along with the matching Seashells 3D Embossing Folder & the Seaside Seashells Dies.  Try saying all that fast – I had a lot of trouble typing it lol.

Tahitian Tide really jumps out at you so to tone it down a little, I daubed Pacific Point Ink onto an image with a Sponge Dauber prior to stamping it.  It come out a little darker than the Tahitian Tide but toned down from the real colour of Pacific Point.

The sentiment is from the lovely Sending Smiles Stamp Set while the die cut shape is from the matching Sending Dies.  I can see myself using these a lot throughout the year.

The card has been finished off with a couple of Opal Rounds randomly adhered to the Front.

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.

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?

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights December

G’Day Friends,

Today I am hopping along with Kylie’s International Blog Hop for December.  This is a hop where Demonstrators from all around the world chose to take part highlighting all our lovely product.  If this is the first time visiting my blog, thank you so much for dropping by.

You are able to vote for my card Here or by clicking on the photo below.

Thank You is our theme for the hop.  Many of us don’t take the time to thank the ones we love or care about.  It can be the simple things that they do for us each day or big things that they have done recently.  It is so important to say thank you and show our appreciation for the hard work of others and the kindness that they show.

I love creating this type of card & posting them off in the mail or leaving them in my neighbours letterboxes.  Do you know of anyone you can post or give this type of card to?  I’m sure they would appreciate it.

I had the Harvest Meadows Suite from the current July-December Mini Catalogue, sitting on my desk from a past project so decided to go with it.  I seem to be using this Suite a lot but you do that sometimes when you love playing with a certain stamp set, suite, etc.

I chopped a piece of the lovely Harvest Meadow DSP into 2, adhered 1 piece to the bottom of a piece of Basic White prior to flipping the 2nd piece to the opposite side & adhering this piece to the top of the same Basic White.  It was then popped up onto a Crumb Cake Base Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest Stamp Set was stamped onto Basic White in Misty Moonlight Ink, die cut with the Natures Dies before being adhered across the middle of the Card Front.

The flower was die cut from Basic White Cardstock with Natures Dies prior to adding ink with the Sponge Daubers.  Not only does it give the card a bit of a wow, it also highlights the lovely texture in the shape created from the Dies.  I’ve used Bumblebee, Mint Macaron & Crumb Cake Inks.

I finished the card off by adding Gold Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots along with a Bumblebee Trinket.

Don’t forget to click HERE to vote for me.  I would really apreciate it!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!
