Stampin’ Blends are Here….


By now you are probably aware that Stampin’ Blends are now available for everyone.  I have to say that I am loving them & so will you!

My card is one I sent off in the mail yesterday to thank a friend (one I went to school with & haven’t seen for many years) for a special service we attended a couple of days ago.  I do hope she likes it!

The card has actually been cased from Page 10I of the Annual Catalogue.  Mind you, it You've-Got-This-1---Insidedoesn’t look anything like the original but it was a good starting point as I wanted it to be happy & bright, plus I wanted to play with the Stampin’ Blends.

To create my card, I used the Light Calypso Coral to colour the flowers followed by the Dark Daffodil Delight & then the Light Daffodil Delight.  I’m loving how they turned out.  The leaves were created using the leaf image from Painted Harvest & punched with the coordinating Leaf Punch.  Both are available in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue & are available as a Bundle.

Although I have used a couple of items that have retired (easily replaced by current product) I’m very happy with my card today, but please let me know what you think.

If you click on the link above the card, you will be able to download a tutorial so that you can create your own.  It includes all the measurements (metric & imperial) along November-2017with a list of products.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’




287. You’ve Got This


You’ve Got This…


G’Day Stampers,

My card today is the 2nd card we created a couple of weeks ago when we were playing with the Technique – Bleaching.  Once I start on techniques, I can’t seem to get enough of them.  Can’t you tell I love my techniques.

I love the card today – not sure why.  It could be the simple layout out or the way the Bleach has reacted to Melon Mambo or even the Basic Black behind the Melon Mambo.

Don’t forget to grab your Technique Tutorial, head on over to the Technique Page where you have 3 options for downloading.

Sending Many Thanks

G’day Stampers,

Today’s card is one I did way back in June/July when we could pre-order for the current catalogue.  I have just found it in my blog file & one which I thought I had posted.

011a1To create my card, I stamped the background images direct onto the Base card  Whisper White in Smokey Slate Ink, ensuring the images were in the middle of the card & not too high or low.  I then stamped the large flower image onto a scrap of Whisper White with Memento Black Ink & coloured with Daffodil Delight & Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities before cutting out & setting aside.

A piece of Modern Medley DSP (Retired) was adhered to the Top & Bottom of the Base Card.  I then attached the large flower to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  3 x Basic Black Leaves were punched with the Bird Builder Punch prior to adhering under the flower.

The Sentiment from Petite Pairs was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White with Memento Black Ink, prior to cutting into a Banner Shape at the bottom.  A Basic Black & Whisper White Banner was created prior to adhering all 3 to the top part of the card.

To finish it off, I adhered a row of Pearls along the top of the Banner & again along the top of the DSP.  I then scattered smaller Pearls around the card.

You may recognise this card as it is on Page 170 of the current catalogue.  I’ve changed it around to suit what I had to play with.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
