Just for You

G’Day Stampers,

It has been some time since my last post but sometimes life just gets in the way which means we have to take a little time out for ourselves.  Fingers crossed I will be back to posting regularly next week.

Today I am sharing with you the card I sent out with the 2019-2021 In Colour Club at theWoen-Threads---Inside beginning of the month.  Our colour was Seaside Spray.  Included in the club was the Woven Threads DSP which I will admit was not that keen on to begin with but oh how wrong was I.  I LOVE it!

The sentiment is from Dandelion Wishes & was stamped in Seaside Spray.  I am loving this colour & can see myself using it lots in the next 2 years.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

12 Days of Christmas – Day 2

12-Days-of-ChristmasG’Day Stampers,

Today is Day 2 of my 12 Days of Christmas where I am sharing with you projects which you are able to create just in time for Christmas.

Each day I will also share a little about our Aussie Christmas, how we celebrate & what our traditions are.  I may even include a couple of real Aussie Christmas songs.

Did you know that there is an Aussie version of the 12 Days of Christmas?  No!  Today is Day 2 of our version.

On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me – 

“A Cockie in a Bottlebrush Tree,

Two flying Doctors”

My card today is one we will be creating in our classes today.  It is using the Night in Bethlehem Stamp Set along with the matching Bethlehem Edgelits.An-Aussie-Christmas-2

We used the Dragging/Swiping Technique to create our card.  If you would like to know how to do this technique, just click on the Technique Tutorials Page.

478. Blessed Christmas Wishes – Night in Bethlehem


Birthday Blossoms


Today’s card is one of the many we created over a month in our class when we played with the Retifom Techniquewhich you can find the tutorial here.

The class was split into pairs which mean we worked on 4 lots of cards at once.  I thought it would be utter chaos but much to my surprise it worked our perfectly & we seemed to fly through the classes in record time.Birthday-Blooms-1---Inside

We used a few of the retiring In Colours to create our card – Emerald Envy & Peekaboo Peach Inks & Cardstock.

This technique is a little addictive as each time you play you will end up with a different look which is what happened in our classes.

Today is Your Day


G’Day Stampers,

I am having a little trouble getting back into blogging at the moment so fingers crossed all will be back to normal.

I’m sharing with you one of the new suites from the 2018 Occasions CatalogueTrue Gentleman Suite.  Love it!  Mind you, I was in 2 minds as to whether I would purchase it but as usual once in my hands, it is totally different.  Lots of ideas.  I am actually in the middle of planning a class around it.

I wanted to create a very quick simple card but one with a bit of a wow factor showcasing the lovely DSP from True Gentleman DSP.  I took my inspiration from the Catalogue.January

Global Stamping Friends Anniversary Blog Hop


Today I am taking part in an Anniversary Blog Hop happening over at Global Stamping Friends which is a group of Demonstrators from all around the world.  We are celebrating 12 months since the group started & boy has it grown!

For the special Anniversary Hop our theme is ANNIVERSARY of course!logo

I was so undecided as to what I was going to use & how to create my card that I ended up totally confused, so I decided to keep it simple with lots of white.

The past week or so I have been experimenting  with my inks & stamps, trying new ways of stamping & colouring.  My image was inspired by a card sitting on my desk which I will share with you sometime in the future once it has been finished.

My image is from the “Floral Phrases” Stamp Set which was inked using Pink Pirouette & Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers & stamped direct onto a piece of Whisper White CS.  I then grabbed my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker, scribbled colour onto a Block & picking up small amounts of colour at a time with a Blender Pen, coloured over areas of the Pink Pirouette.  I repeated the same technique for the leaves using Wild Wasabi Ink.  I think it brings the flower to life.

Floral-Phrases---InsideThe flower was die cut with the oval shape from the Stitched Shape Framelits by running through the Big Shot.  As I wanted my card to be mostly all white, I decided to add a small scallop Whisper White frame behind the oval so I die cut another piece of Whisper White CS using the Layering Ovals Framelits & running through the Big Shot.  This piece was adhered to the stamped oval.

I embossed a piece of Whisper White CS with the Softly Falling EF before layering onto the Base Card – Flirty Flamingo.  The oval shape was adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the “Beautiful Bouquet” Stamp Set.  I thought it suited the card & blog hop perfectly.  It was stamped onto scrap Whisper White CS in Flirty Flamingo, cut each end into a Banner Shape & adhered to the bottom of the flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I do hope you have enjoyed my card.  Be sure to check out all the other wonderful creations joining the blog hop.
