Chat & Create – Stamping for Ava

G’Day Friends,

Today I am sharing something a little different with you.

Last Friday, we had a very fun morning of chatting, drinking cups of tea & coffee, with lots of laughing, eating, singing, dancing & crafting!  All with little Ava & her family at the backs of our minds.  You can read all about Ava’s Journey here.

The event was sort of spur of the moment about 1 month before the day so we just went with the flow – if it can happen this way!  Happy to report it went off without a hitch & with a handful of volunteers to help us make the day so successful & fun.  Of course, you can’t forget all the many volunteers behind the scenes who never let us down with their yummy homemade sweets & entrees.  Thank you so much!

We had 9 tables which seated 6 to each table except for 2, which seated 8.  You can imagine the designing, cutting & prepping for each card.  I also had to bear in mind that 99% of the ladies had never stamped before the event!  Each table had 2 different designs.  That’s 18 designs!!!!!

Anyhow, we got there with each of them creating 2 cards each with lots doing 3, 4 & 5.  A lot of them shocked themselves with what they created.  I will say the imagination on some of the projects was fantastic.  No 2 were alike.  They loved walking around for show & tell, shocked to find that each table had completely different cards – lol!

We even had a little 4 year boy who was with his Nana & created 2 cards – 1 for mum & 1 for his Daycare Teacher!  He was so proud.  He then found me later on to have a little twist on the dancefloor with him.  He had dumped his Nana!!!!

Card #1 – Darling Donkeys

Happy Stamping!

G’Day Stampers,

Before I get onto today’s card, I’m happy to say that I have just uploaded new PDF Tutorials for purchase. Simply click on the PDF Tutorial Sale Page. In the next couple of days, there will be more uploaded for you to choose.

Today I am sharing with you a Tripple Pop-Up Card that I created a few weeks ago. It has been sitting on my desk waiting to be finished which I managed to do this morning.

I’ve used the Granny Apple Green DSP from the Brights 6 x 6 DSP Pack along with Whisper White & Granny Apple Green Cardstock.

I’ve teamed the colours with the fun Dino Days Stamp Set as I thought the colours were bright & fun for kids. In fact all the stamping is from the Brights Colour FamilyGorgeous Grape, Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody & Pacific Point. The palm trunks have been stamped in Early Espresso Ink.

The sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set & stamped in Pacific Point Ink before die cutting with a shape from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

I don’t have a tutorial for you today but if you google Tripple Pop-Up Card, a lot of videos & tutorials will pop up that you will be able to check out.
