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.

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

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

Feature of the Week – Friendly Hello Bundle #2

G’Day Friends,

Today sees the 2022 January-February Sale-a-Bration & the January-June Mini Catalogues go live.  It’s the day we’ve been waiting for & believe me you will not be disappointed when you see what is in these Catalogues.

It’s Day #2 of our Feature of the Week showcasing the lovely Friendly Hello Bundle.

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 & let’s face it, who doesn’t love our DSP?

Check out the lovely bright Granny Apple Green design on the front of today’s card.  This Paper makes it so easy to create lovely projects.

The background has been randomly stamped with a selection of images from the Stamp Set in shades of Pool Party, Shaded Spruce & Memento Tuxedo Black Inks.  I am loving the final outcome, don’t you?

The sentiment has been stamped on Basic White Cardstock with the Shaded Spruce Ink, punched with the Tailored Tag Punch, random images stamped around the shape in Pool Party Ink & then adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

It was finished off with a small bow from the Pool Party Sheer Ribbon.

Catalogues went off in the mail last week so hopefully they should be landing in your letterboxes shortly.  If you don’t have a current Demonstrator & you would like a copy of the Catalogues, please contact me as I can pop one in the post for you.

Today’s project is one I created sometime ago but have never gotten round to posting or sharing them with you.  It using the cute Be Jolly Stamp Setwhich is on the Last Chance Product List & will be retiring very soon.

In fact I have 5 cards to share with you this week all created with the fun Stamp Set.  I think I may have created them for an Online class but promptly forgot about them so you get to see them instead.

Santa was stamped onto Basic White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, coloured with Real Red, Basic Black & Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combos & die cut with the Layering Circles Dies.

A piece of Real Red Cardstock was embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder, adhered to a Thick Basic White Base Card & the die cut circle adhered to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the same set, stamped onto scrap Basic White in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, chopped back to size & shape before being adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card was finished off with Rhinestone Basic Jewels randomly adhered to the card front.
