A Little Lace

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for popping by today.

Today’s card has been taken from one I saw on Pinterest by Annette Elliot.  I just loved the colours & the simple layout, although I have changed mine a little as you do.  Thank you Annette for your inspiration.

I’ve used the sweet “A Little Lace” Stamp Set & one that I am wondering why I haven’t played with more as I am loving it.  I can see a few more projects coming with this set.

Did you know the Medium Daisy Punch fits the large daisy in this set?  Isn’t that fantastic?Did you notice I’ve used 4 of the retiring 2019-2021 In ColoursTerracotta Tile, Purple Posy Cardstocks, Purple Posy & Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends plus Pretty Peacock Ink?  Oh not to mention the Terracotta Tile Butterfly Gems to complete my card.

Both the Classic Label Punch (one of my favourite Punches) & the Layering Ovals Dies are retiring too.  Check them out in the Last Chance Product List.

Actually, I’ve used a lot of retiring products to create my card today as I’ve just realised the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder is on the list too!

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.

Purple Posy Day #1

G’Day Friends,

It’s a new week which means a new 2019-2021 In ColourPurple Posy is the star of the show this week!

I knew immediately what I wanted to use to create my card today & that was the fun Playing with Patterns DSP.  I’ve teamed it up with the fun Moving Along Stamp Set.  A match made in heaven or so I think, but you be the judge.

A piece of Basic White was embossed with the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder before being adhered to a Purple Posy Base Card.

I randomly stamped the little outline car image direct onto a piece of Basic White Cardstock in Highland Heather Ink.  I then decided to highlight one of the cars, so I stamped the solid car image into one of the outline images.  This set is a 2 step stamping set!  Have I mentioned how much fun this stamp set is lol!

The stitched rectangle has been die cut from Magenta Madness with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

This panel was adhered to the left of the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped onto scrap Basic White in Blackberry Bliss, punched with the Classic Label Punch & adhered to the lower right of the Card Front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To complete the card I decided to add a couple of Clear Rhinestones.

Seaside Spray Day 3

G’Day Friends,

This is my last day of showcasing the  Seaside Spray In Colour.  It is one of my very favourite colours.

For our card today, I’ve teamed up Seaside Spray with the lovey Daisy Lane Stamp Set along with the gorgeous Scallop Linen Ribbon.

As I loved the colour combination from my post on Thursday, I thought I would sort of go along the same lines again but this time I’ve teamed it up with Sahara Sand.

A piece of Sahara Sand was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, adhered to a piece of Basic White, Ribbon placed along the top of the embossed Cardstock & then adhered to the Seaside Spray Base Card.

The sentiment is from the Happy Thoughts Stamp Set & was stamped on a piece of Basic White Cardstock in Seaside Spray.  The stem was stamped to the left of the sentiment in Sahara Sand, adhered to a layer of Blushing Bride before being adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the large daisy twice, the medium daisy twice in Seaside Spray, punched with the Daisy & Medium Daisy Punches, adhered onto each other so that the petals were all off centre & adhered to the top of the stem with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I then tied a small knot from the same Ribbon & adhered it to the centre of the daisy with a Mini Glue Dot.  The card was completed with the lovely little Seaside Spray Butterfly Gems.

My card today was actually created with family members in mind & has already gone off in the post.

Thank you for joining me this week.  It is always very much appreciated.

Pretty Peacock Day #3

G’Day Friends,

Today is the last day of showcasing the lovely Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In Colour.  I do hope you are enjoying the cards I’ve been creating with these In Colours over the past few weeks.

I’ve combined the “old”, so to speak, with the “new” for today’s share.  Enjoy Every Moment Stamp Set is from the 2021 Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue.

The more I use this set, the more I am loving it.  So much potential.

I randomly stamped 4 images from Enjoy Every Moment Stamp Set onto 4 x squares in Old Olive Ink.  These squares were then adhered to 4 x scallop squares die cut from Coastal Cabana with the Layering Squares Dies before adhering to the left side of Basic White which has been embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

The sentiment from the same set was stamped onto scrap Basic White in Pretty Peacock Ink & die cut with the die from Stitched So Sweetly Dies before being adhered to centre of the 4 squares with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A very easy but effective card I think but more importantly I do hope you like it.

Pretty Peacock Day #2

G’Day Friends,

Well this didn’t happen yesterday instead spent the day in bed with Vertigo.  I know what I would have sooner been doing lol.

Pretty Peacock screams the ocean – to me anyhow – & this was the perfect time to create a card for males, females or kids.

It was also the perfect time to dig out my very neglected Whale Done Stamp Set & Whale Builder Punch.

Of course when you have these 2 products, you have to do a little embossing which means I embossed a piece of Basic White Cardstock with the gorgeous Seabed 3D Embossing Folder before adhering to the Pretty Peacock Base Card.

The sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set, stamped in Pretty Peacock Ink prior to being die cut with an oval from the Layering Ovals Dies.  It was then adhered to a Pretty Peacock scallop oval die cut with the same Dies.

The whale was stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Pretty Peacock Ink, punched with the Whale Builder Punch prior to adhering to the side of the oval with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I am loving the simple layout & colours of this card!  I hope you do too.

If you are new to Stampin’ Up!, there are 2 levels in the Sale-a-Bration Brochure.

The 3rd level would have to be the best in my eyes & that happens when joining Stampin’ Up! during SAB & purchasing the Starter Kit for $169.  Of course, then SU! are gonna throw in the FREE exclusive gift of 200 pieces of DSP from the upcoming catalogue.  Can it get any better?

Don’t forget, you can join here.  We would love to have you on our team!

I hope you’ve been enjoying my cards this week with the lovely Rococo Rose?  I know I’ve enjoyed creating them.  Of course it is one of the colours retiring this year so if you love this colour, best to purchase it now!

This time round I’ve pulled out the Decorative Masks to create my background.  It is very soft which gives the whole card a very soft effect, don’t you think?

A Touch of Ink is a 2-step stamping Stamp Set which is what I did for my flower.  The outline is in Rococo Rose while the solid image is Blushing Bride but I stamped off first onto scrap paper before filling in the outline.

Rococo Rose #2

G’Day Friends,

This is Day 2 of Robbie & myself showcasing the lovely 2019-2021 In Colours over on our FB Pages.  Be sure to join us there.

Once again, my card is very simple to create but one that I think is lovely & clean so that it showcases the elements of the card perfectly.

This time round I’ve pulled out one of my favourites – Timeless Tropical Stamp Set.   It has been teamed up with the lovely Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.

The flower was stamped with Blushing Bride Ink while the leaves are Mini Macaron Ink.  The images were die cut with the matching dies from In the Tropics Dies.

The sentiment is from the Floral Essence Stamp Set.

The Base Card is again Rococo Rose along with the piece across the middleI am loving this colour & will be so sorry to see it leave us.

I finished the card off with a couple of 3 Clear Rhinestones..

What do you think?

Rococo Rose #1

G’Day Friends,

This week  Robbie & I are showcasing the lovely 2019-2021 In Colours over on our FB Pages.  Be sure to join us there.  It won’t be long & they will no longer be available.

My card is simple one but a fun one.  I’ve used the Kangaroo & Company Stamp Set to create it.  I’m not sure if you are aware but kangaroos are one of my favourite native animals.  I often walk out the front door early of a morning & find 6 or so feeding on the front lawn.  They are very quiet in the area I live in but all the same I am careful not to frighten them.  They don’t even worry about Belle – my little Maltese & she is not worried about them either.

The images have been stamped onto Basic White with my Stamparatus & coloured with Stampin’ Blends.  This piece was then embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder before being adhered to a piece of Crumb Cake & then to the Rococo Rose Base Card.

The sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set, stamped onto Basic White in Rococo Rose Ink, chopped back to size & shape prior to adhering to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To complete the card I coloured the lovely White Resin Hearts with the Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blend & randomly adhered them to the Card Front.

They finish the card off perfectly, don’t you think?
