Hello Ladybug & Across the Waves

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for visiting my blog today as I have something special to share with you.

Robbie from Creations in Paper & myself have teamed up to give you Across the Waves Mini Blog Hop.  Each Wednesday we will be sharing & featuring a project created with a nominated Stamp Set or Bundle.

For all of February, the fun Hello Ladybug Bundle will be the star!   It is available from the current Mini Catalogue & is such a fun Bundle .  One that I am having lots of fun with.  Have you purchased your Bundle yet?

To create my card I decided to go with the colours of Pale Papaya, So Saffron, Old Olive, Calypso Coral & Basic White.

A layer of Basic White was embossed with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder while another piece of  Basic White was created with one of the masks from the Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks which is available from the Annual Catalogue.

The large leaf has been stamped in Old Olive Ink prior to being fussy cut.  By the way, did you know if you chop off the top part, it turns into such alovely shape heart – perect for Valentine’s Day or any day for that matter.

To complete the card I randomly adhered the a couple of the Bronze Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to the Card Front.

Need supplies to create today’s project at home?  Don’t forget to use February’s Host Code – Y7CPFNKQ –  if your order is under $250.   All orders receive a PDF Tutorial & a Handmade Card from me.

Friendly Hello Bundle – Make n Take #4

G’Day Friends,

This week I will be sharing the remainder of my samples from our Fun Day over in our World Card Making Group – #WCMG.

Make n Take #4 was all about Mystery Stamping.  Who doesn’t love a bit of mystery?

Once again I’ve used the Friendly Hello Bundle is Level 2 from Sale-a-Bration which you can earn for FREE when spending $180.  Can I say I am enjoyning playing with these papers & have to report that I don’t have much left which is probaly a good thing, right!

This gorgeous Bundle includes the Friendly Hello Stamp Set along with a pack of the Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper.  Did you know that some images from the stamp set are designed to be stamped directly onto the paper for a unique look all you own.  How great is that?

I’ve taken the colours of Pale Papaya & Basic Black from the papers which are striking but soft to the eye.

The flowers have been coloured & blended with Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends while the leaves have been stamped with Shaded Spruce Ink.

Awesome Otters – Make n Take #2

G’Day Friends,
I spent Saturday crafting online with a lovely group of friends in our World Card Making Group – #WCMG.  It was a full on day showcasing the Sale-a-Bration & the Mini Catlaogues.  We shared lots of lovely projects with videos, tips & ideas.  You are more than welcome to join us if you like.
As it is Monday, it means it’s Manly Monday,  I thought I would share one of the cards that I created from Annette’s lovely project.  Perfect for the kids!
Both the cute Awesome Otters Stamp Set & the Simply Marbleous DSP are Level 1 Sale-a-Bration items that you are able to receive for free when spending $90AUD.
My card has been created using scraps of DSP & Cardstock so I actually went with what I had.  The cute little otters have been coloured & blended with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends, while the hat is Manago Melody & Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set, stamped onto So Saffron Cardstock in Night of Navy Ink, chopped back to size & shape before being adhered to the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
You can watch Annette’s video by clicking on  this link.

January Stamp ‘N Hop

G’Day Friends,

Thank you & welcome to our first Blog Hop for the new year!

We are a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing our love of Stampin’ Up! You are free to join us if you like, but we do ask that you be a current SU! Demo & that you use current SU! products.

This month is a little different as we get to mix & match new product with old product.  You could say a little of this from the new January-February Sale-A-Bration or  January-June Mini & a little of this from the Annual Catalogue.

You may have arrived from Jenn’s blog where she shared her lovely creation.  If you are starting from my blog, all you have to do is click on the arrow below or the Roll Call at the end of my post.

An image from Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set was stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Memento Tuxedo Back Ink & coloured with the Poppy Parade & Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combos.

The sentiment was stamped to the right side direct onto the same Basic White & again, in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I grabbed a small piece of the lovely Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper from Sale-a -Bration – don’t you just love the name? – & adhered it to the bottom of the Basic White.

A piece of the lovely Metallic Mesh Ribbon was adhered across the top of the Paper prior to adhering to a layer of Basic Grey & finally to the Old Olive Base Card.

The remainder of the Ribbon was threaded through the piece going across the card prior to a bow being tied.

To finish it off Rhinestones Basic Jewels were randomly adhered to the Card Front & to the bottom of each flower.

Its a very simple card but I think the colours & simpilicity of the card speaks for itself, don’t you?

Thank you so much for visting me today.  It is very much appreciated.  Next up on our hop is Jacqui.  I’m sure she would love for you to visit & to leave her a comment.

Once again the colours have been picked from the Papers – Basic Black & Pool Party.  How easy can that be?

The sentiment panel was die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies & yes, they are one of my favourites, hence the lots of use, while the sentiment was stamped in Pool Party Ink.

This is a Level 2 Bundle from Sale-a-Bration which you can earn for FREE when spending $180 AND it starts TODAY!

This gorgeous Bundle includes the Friendly Hello Stamp Set along with a pack of the Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper.

I started casing the Card from the Brochure but then it sort of went off on its own.  But that can be a good thing as you then add your own spin on things.

The colours of my card come from the Papers which make it so easy to create.  They are Basic Black, Petal Pink with a piece of Vellum added over the top of the DSP.

A piece of Basic White was die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, prior to stamping the bird & flowers image in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  They were then coloured with Pool Party & Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Combos.The sentiment has been stamped in Granny Apple Green Ink, another colour in the Papers.

G’Day Friends,

I have another card to share with you today created with the Be Jolly Stamp Set.

In saying that, this will be my last Christmas card for the year!  Can you believe that the “man” himself will visiting all the little kids AND big kids tonight!

A piece of Basic White Cardstock was embossed down the left side with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder from the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder.

3 scored lines were scored down the right side of the embossed area prior to being adhered to a Garden Green Base Card.

The tree was stamped onto a piece of Basic White Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, coloured & blended with Stampin’ Blends.  I stamped the sentiment direct onto the same Cardstock in Real Red Ink.

A piece of Real Red Cardstock was die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The Basic White piece was then adhered to this piece & then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish it off, I randomly scattered Clear Rhinestones to the Basic White Panel.

Don’t forget this cute Be Jolly Stamp Set is on the Last Chance Product List & will be retiring very soon.

Be Jolly #2

G’Day Friends,

I have another card to share with you today again created with the fun Be Jolly Stamp Set.

A piece of Real Red Cardstock was layered onto the front of a Basic Black Base Card.

I cut a piece of Basic White Cardstock into 3 random pieces, stamped the 3 images of Santa, coloured with Stampin’ Blends & adhere to a Garden Green panel.

A layer of Basic White Cardstock was embossed with the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder prior to adhering the Garden Green panel across the centre with Stampin’ Dimensionals & then to the Base Card.

The sentiment has been stamped onto scrap Basic White in Real Red Ink, trimmed back to size & shape prior to being adhering to the bottom part of the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I completed the card by adhering Red Rhinestones to the centre Basic White panel so that Santa looked like he was doing a little juggling!

Don’t forget this cute Be Jolly Stamp Set is on the Last Chance Product List & will be retiring very soon.
