Manly Monday with Friends are like Seashells

G’Day Friends,

Once again, its time for Manly Monday!

Today I have something a little different to share with you in that I pulled the Friends are like Seashells Stamp Set off my shelf.  Sad to say, this lovely stamp has not been used in sometime.

So now I have my Stamp Set, its Manly Monday, now to decide on the colours which is where Very Vanilla comes into play.

I have the both Cardstock & Stamp Set so its time to bring in colours that have not seen the light of day for sometime.  Out pops Cinnamon Cider along with Cherry Cobbler & Crumb Cake.  I’m not keen on Cinnamon Cider, Cherry Cobbler I will play with but Crumb Cake, now that is a keeper.  Well, that I have 1 colour that I love lol, I don’t want to make it too hard for myself.

Where to from here?  “Keep it simple”, I keep telling myself which is exactly what I think I’ve done.

The sentiment is from the Best Year Stamp Set, stamped direct onto the Very Vanilla in Cinnamon Cider Ink prior to being adhered to a Cinnamon Cider Base Card.

The shell was stamped in Crumb Cake Ink, again on Very Vanilla, die cut with the Seaside Seashells Dies & embossed with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.

The Cherry Cobbler DSP has been adhered to a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock, then to Very Vanilla with Stampin’ Dimensionals & finally to the Cinnamon Cinder Base Card.

Klyie’s International Blog Hop November

G’Day Friends,

Today I am hopping along with Kylie’s International Blog Hop for November.  This is a hop where Demonstrators from all around the world chose to take part highlighting all our lovely product.  If this is the first time visiting my blog, thank you so much for dropping by.

You are able to vote for my card Here or by clicking on the photo below.

Thank You is our theme for the hop.  Many of us don’t take the time to thank the ones we love or care about.  It can be the simple things that they do for us each day or big things that they have done recently.  It is so important to say thank you and show our appreciation for the hard work of others and the kindness that they show.

I love creating this type of card & posting them off in the mail or leaving them in my neighbours letterboxes.  Do you know of anyone you can this type of card to?  I’m sure they would appreciate it.

I decided to dig out an older stamp set – Forever Blossoms & create a simple & easy card.  Sometimes these are the best & we forget to create them.I used the gorgeous Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder, along with Flirty Flamingo & Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  The flower was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink along with the sentiment which is from the Art Gallery Stamp Set.

The image was then die cut with the mataching die from Cherry Blossoms Dies & adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To complete the card, I tied a small bow with the lovely Pool Party Sheer Ribbon, added Pearls to the centre of the flowers & randomly to the card front.

Don’t forget to click HERE to vote for me.  I would really apreciate it!

Want to create my project at home?  All the supplies are available in my Online Stampin’ Up! Store.  Add all the items to your Shopping Cart by clicking on the photo below or just pick & chose what you would like to add to your Shopping Cart.

Textures & Frames #3

G’Day Friends,

We were given a Colour Challenge over in our WCMD FB Group the other day with Coastal Cabana & Flirty Flamingo.  If you haven’t joined for our day, be sure to by clicking on the above link.

As I’ve mentioned, the fun Textures & Frames Stamp Set can be used for all sort of things – so many ideas, only 2 hands lol.

This set is FREE when you spend over $90 but only during August-September Sale-a-Bration which ends 30 September.

The “baubles” are from the Textures & Frames Stamp Set, the “string” from  the Penguin Place Stamp Set, the bow from Tidings & Trimmings Stamp Set & the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set.

The background was embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.

To complete the card I added Clear Rhinestones to the centres of the bows.

I love when I can mix & match my stamp sets to create a project.

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

Happy Stamping!

Beautifully Penned DSP #2

G’Day Stampers,

Today is Day 2 of showcasing the  lovely  Beautifully Penned DSP today from Sale-A-Bration.

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

This time round I’ve created a black & white Christmas Card.  Black & white always screams elegant which I think this one is.  If you leave the bow off it could also be the perfect card for the male at Christmas too.

Did you notice the embossed background?  It is the new Timber 3D Embossing Folder from the July-December Mini Catalogue.  Don’t you love how subtle it is on this card?

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Deer Stamp Set, also from the same catalogue.Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

August Blog n Hop Blog Hop

G’Day Stampers,

Welcome to the Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop for August!

We are a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing our love of Stampin’ Up! You are free to join us if you like, but we do ask that you be a current SU! Demo & that you use current SU! products.

Thank you for visiting.  If you are starting from my blog all you have to do is click on the next arrow below to continue.  There is also a Roll Call at the end of this post in case you get a little lost.

For my card today, I decided to grab Sailing Home from my shelf.  It is one of my favourites but one that hasn’t seen ink in some time.

A piece of Basic White Cardstock was embossed with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder before being adhered to a piece of Night of Navy & then to a Thick Basic White Base Card.

The shape was die cut from Basic White with the Painted Labels Dies, the yacht stamped in the middle of the circle in Nigh of Navy Ink along with the birds & then adhered to the left side of the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish it off, I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of scrap Basic White in Night of Navy Ink, chopped it back to size & into a banner shape before adhering it to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

As I mentioned, a very simple & easy card but one that I am more than happy with.

Thanks again for visiting my blog today.

Be sure to click on all the links during this hop as it always interesting to see what everyone comes up with & how many ideas we can get from visiting.  Of course, a little love on the way of comments will surely be a lovely surprise to hoppers too.

Share it Sunday Blog Hop

G’Day Stampers,

Something a little different for me today as I am hopping along with a group of lovely ladies & I must admit this is the first time I’ve hopped with them.

The theme of the hop is….  Share a project, any project which works out perfectly as I had created a card especially for a challenge & thought it also perfect for this hop.

I’ve used one of my favourites – Timeless Tropical Stamp Set along with Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Highland Heather & Mossy Meadow Inks.  The Cardstock is Basic White & Pool Party.

The Basic White layer has been embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder while the sentiment was stamped in Pacific Point.

I am loving the colour combination!  What do you think?

Thanks so much for dropping by.  Be sure to click on the links below to check out what everyone has created for this hop.


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

Happy Stamping!

Tasteful Touches

G’Day Friends,

Thanks so much for popping in today.  It is very much appreciated.

I thought I would share a card I created sometime ago but one that I hadn’t posted using the lovely Tasteful Touches Stamp Set, along with the In Good Taste DSP & the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  All of which I am so happy are in the current Annual Catalogue.

A piece of Basic White was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, adhered to a layer of Smokey Slate Cardstock & then to a Night of Navy Base Card.

A piece of Basic White was stamped with the feather from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink, a piece of Ribbon (retired) wrapped around the bottom part & a bow tidedThis panel was then adhered to the piece of DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped onto scrap Basic White in Night of Navy Ink, fussy cut & adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

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

Happy Stamping!

Dragonfly Garden

G’Day Stampers,

Today’s card is an idea I’ve had in my head for a couple of days so of course, I had to try & recreate the idea onto a card.  I’m happy to say that it worked out how I was one seeing it.

I die cut 4 different stitched rectangle shapes from a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock with the Stitched Rectangle Dies before randomly stamping 3 of the shapes with images from Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set.   The 4th one I stamped a sentiment from the same Stamp Set.  All images were stamped in Night of Navy Ink.

The shapes were then arranged & adhered to a mat of Smokey Slate Cardstock.

A piece of Merry Merlot Cardstock was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, adhered to a Night of Navy Base Card before the Smokey Slate panel was adhered to the centre of the embossed Cardstock with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I punched 3 x small dragonflies from scrap Merry Merlot Cardstock with the Dragonflies Punch prior to randomly adhering to the Card Front.

To complete the card, I adhered a Silver Metallic Pearls to the centre of each dragonfly & randomly to the panel.

I hope you like it as much as I did creating it.

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

Happy Stamping!

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!
