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.

Stamp Set – Oceanfront, Inspired Thoughts

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

Nature’s Prints

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for dropping by.  It is very much appreciated.

Last night was the first time we did our Mystery Stamping on a Monday Night.  A little different for me as I usually go to bed with the chooks & up with the birds!

I decided to play with some new product that will be in the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue & believe me, I loved them & I think you will too.

I was able to purchase the gorgeous Tea Boutique 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper along with the Sun Print’s Suite Collection in our Pre-Order.  I didn’t use the whole Collection but instead teamed Nature’s Prints Stamp Set up with the DSP.  I think it may have worked but I will let you be the judge.

It’s a simple & easy layout but one that showcases both the lovely Stamp Set AND the gorgeous DSP.

Just Jade In Colour

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for dropping in today.

The Feature of the Week is all about the 2020-2022 In Colours.  Today is Just Jade’s turn.

I  decided to try & keep the card fairly simple & soft so I’ve teamed it up with Petal Pink & Grey Granite.  A colour combination that I think works well.

The lovely Petal Pink DSP is retiring too although we will have another 6 x 6 pattern of Subtles DSP to play with for the next 12 months.  Its always a mad scramble to try & use our retiring product before the new Catalogue hits us head on!

I then decided to pull a Stamp Set from my shelf that I hadn’t used for sometime & that was Dragonfly Garden along with the Dragonflies Punch.

Supplies  –

Stamp Set – Dragonfly Garden

Inks – Just Jade, Smokey Slate

Cardstock – Basic White, Just Jade, Grey Granite

DSP – Subtles 6 x 6

Punch – Dragonflies

Embellishments – Bumblebee Trinkets

Dies – Harvest
