Manly Monday with Sailing Home

G’Day Friends,

Today is Monday & I get to share with you a card created for the males that I created on Saturday during our World Card Making Day – #WCMD2021!  It was such a fun day but of course, the fun is still happening as we are all busy trying to create & catch up with or Make n Takes.

I decided to go with an one of my favourites – Sailing Home Stamp Set along with the Smooth Sailing Dies.  The colours are Balmy Blue, Basic White & Night of Navy.  Can’t go wrong with them, right?  The DSP is the Subtles 6 x 6 Pack.

It’s simple card but one that shows you a different way of chopping your DSP.

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

Happy Stamping!

 

Textures & Frames #4

G’Day Friends,

Thanks for dropping by today.  It is always very much appreciated.

Today is the 3rd card I’ve created with the Textures & Frames Stamp Set which could be yours when spending $90 or more while the August-September Sale-a-Bration is happening.

I’ve chopped into the glamorous Be Dazzling Specialty Paper from Sale-a-Bration too.  I think it goes really well with the colours I’ve used.

The circles have been randomly stamped in Polished Pink, Coastal Cabana & Daffodil Delight Inks, while the sentiment is in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink & die cut with the shape from Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Have you noticed the sentiment?  It’s called In Your Words & is from the Sale-a-Bration Host Stamp Set which could be yours when hosting a Party or placing a personal order over $500.  I am loving the sentiments in this set.

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

Happy Stamping!

Manly Monday with Textures & Frames

G’Day Friends,

It’s been a little while since my last blog post but I have been posting on my FB Page.

It’s Monday which means its Manly Monday where I get to create a project just for the males in our lives.

I received my FREE Textures & Frames Stamp Set the other day & have been dying to bust it open & start playing.  I have lots of lovely creations to share with you this week with this particular Stamp Set.

I’ve used Night of Navy, Merry Merlot & Smokey Slate Inks.  The Cardstock is Very Vanilla, Merry Merlot & Night of Navy.

This Stamp Set calls for some quick & easy cards.  I can also see it creating lots of lovely scrapbook pages.

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

Happy Stamping!

Peaceful Prints DSP #1

G’Day Stampers,

I hope you are enjoying all the lovely products from Sale-A-Bration.  I know I am, especially the DSP – Designer Series Paper.

I’m showcasing the Peaceful Prints this week which just happens to coordinate with the Peaceful Deer Bundle from the July-December Mini Catalogue.

This lovely paper can be yours for FREE when spending $90 or more.  Check it out here.

Did you know that you could receive the Peaceful Deer Bundle when joining Stampin’ Up! during Sale-a-Bration?  Why not take advantage of this great deal while you can.  Ask me how or click on the link to join TODAY!

Check out all the other Bundles you are able to chose from –

This DSP is so versatile as it can be used for all occasions which I am showcasing today.  This card could be for babies, birthdays, Christmas or anything on your list.

I decided to also go way out of my comfort zone & create with colours from our Colour Coach – Garden Green, So Saffron & Early Espresso.  It took me a little to adjust but now that it is finished, although a clean look & simple layout, I am very happy with the final result.

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

Happy Stamping!

Penguin Place

G’Day Friends,

I do hope you are all safe while in lockdown in some parts of Australia or the world.

Today sees the new July-December 2021 Mini Catalogue go live!  Oh & of course the 2nd lot of Sale-a-Bration from 3 August – 30 September.

Of course, I couldn’t let the opportunity pass without showing you a few projects in the next few weeks that I’ve created using both new product from the Mini & FREE product from SAB which is your for FREE when spending over $90 or $180.

I’ve used the fun Penguin Place Bundle which includes the Penguin Place Stamp Set & the Penguin Builder Punch.  It has been teamed up with the matching Penguin Playmates DSP which is from SAB.

Both the Base Card & Ribbon is Fresh Freesia, while the Penguin & sentiment have been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The little present & bowtie are Balmy Blue.

The embellishments are Fresh Freesia Jewels which I think just finished the card off perfectly.  A little bit of new & a little bit of old!  What do you think?

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

Happy Stamping!

Enjoy Every Moment

G’Day Friends,

Today I am sharing something a little different in that it is one of our creations from our Technique Class last month.

I love my techniques & enjoy playing & creating.  Mind you, sometimes I’m not sure where they are heading until I’m finished.  In saying that, not all of them are perfect, but the best part is the fun!

We played with our lovely Blending Brushes, using them 4 different ways including Basic Blending, Colour Blocking Sun Rays & Northern Lights.

I’m sharing with you one of the Basic Blending card we created with the lovely Polished Pink In Colour, which was teamed up with the Enjoy the Moment Stamp Set.  In fact the image has been stamped in Evening Evergreen Ink & finished off with a couple of Polished Pink Jewels & a bow which was tied with White Baker’s Twine from the Essentials Pack.

Sometimes the simple & easy techniques are the ones that give a wow.  Do you agree?

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

Happy Stamping!

Butterfly Brilliance

G’Day Stampers,

Today I am sharing with you a card I created sometime ago but have never gotten round to sharing it with you.

Butterflies!  I love seeing them in my garden, flying out & in the flowers & plants  Some of them bright while others not so but all very beautiful just the same.

The butterflies have been stamped onto Basic White in Bermuda Bay, chopped into 3’s prior to adhering to a piece of Blushing Bride.  I didn’t go how these colours would suite but I am liking them.

Randomly chopping my layers & DSP into pieces is one of my favourite ways of creating my cards.  So what do I do this time round after stamping my image?  Chop into 3’s, of course.

The central butterfly is from the now retired Butterfly Bijou DSP.  I love that we have images on some of our DSP that also coordinate with our Dies.

To download a free PDF Tutorial, all you have to do is click on the link below.  It includes both A4 – Metric & Imperial plus Letter size measurements.  Of course we can’t forget the List of Products to create your project.

950.  Birthday Wishes – Butterfly Brilliance

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

Happy Stamping!

Purple Posy Day #2

G’Day Friends,

Thanks so much for dropping by today!

It’s Day 2 of showcasing the lovely soft 2019-2021 In Colour of Purple Posy.

When creating with this colour, I find it hard to go past the fun Playing with Patterns DSP.  I also love the cute little Moving Along Stamp Set which I used  Monday as well.  I think they are made for each other but I will let you decide on that one.

I cut a strip of DSP, adhered it to a piece of Basic white Cardstock before wrapping a piece of Night of Navy Ribbon down the edge of the DSP.  This Ribbon is from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack.

The layer of Basic White was then adhered to a piece of Night of Navy before being adhered to the Purple Posy Base Card.

I stamped the little chopper onto scrap Basic White in Night of Navy Ink, coloured & blended with the Purple Posy Stampin’ Blend Combo before die cutting a circle with the Layering Circles Dies.  I cut a scallop circle from Night of Navy with the same dies.

These pieces were adhered together prior to adhering to Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped with Night of Navy Ink, punched with the Classic Label Punch & adhered to the left side of Card Front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

In my photo I finished the card off with Night of Navy Rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestones but have since changed them out to the Playing with Patterns Resin Dots of Purple Posy which softened the whole look of the card more.

Ok enough of that, let’s get onto today’s card.

Today’s card is one that I’ve created with the lovely new Butterfly Brilliance Collection which goes live today until the beginning of May.  I am loving this collection & much to my surprise am enjoying creating for a class around this Collection but I am getting off the beaten  track so to speak.

I embossed a piece of Mint Macaron with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder prior to adhering to a Just Jade Base Card.

A piece of the Butterfly Bijou DSP was trimmed down prior to adhering to a piece of Basic White & then to the top part of the Card Front.

I die cut the stitched shape from Basic White with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, die cut with the Layering Circles Dies & adhered to the centre of the stitched shape with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  This was then adhered to the centre of the DSP panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals too.

I inked up the butterfly of choice, stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Memento Tuxedo Ink prior to colouring & blending with Mini Macaron Stampin’ Blends.

The image was die cut with the outline die from Butterfly Wings Dies before being adhered to the bottom of the die cut circle/shape with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on bottom of the wings only.

To complete the card I randomly adhere Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestone to the front of the card.

During March we are showcasing this lovely collection, so be sure to subscribe for more ideas on creating with this collection.

Terracotta Tile Day #2

G’Day Friends,

Are you ready for Day 2 of showcasing the lovely rich Terracotta  Tile  2019-2021  In  Colour?

Again, I’ve gone with the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP but this time round teamed it up with Early Espresso & Level 1, Heal Your Heart Stamp Set.

Can you tell I am a little obsessed with this Set.  I just love the font as well as the sentiments.

This time I’ve randomly chopped m DSP into 3’s prior to adhering to the Early Espresso Cardstock.

When adhering the DSP, ensure that you are matching the pattern of the DSP & if you have to chop, chop from the outer edges of the DSP so that you keep your pattern.  I love creating & using my DSP this way!

The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso Ink onto Basic White, die cut with the Layering Circles Dies & adhered to a Early Espresso scallop circle which was die cut with the same dies.

It’s a fairly simple card but one that i wanted the Terracotta Tile & the DSP to shine.

I finished the card off with a couple of the cute little Terracotta Tile Butterfly Gems.
