12 Days of Christmas – Day 9

12-Days-of-ChristmasG’Day Stampers,

Once again I am sharing with you a project created with the Santa’s Workshop Suite from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  It consists of the Signs of Santa Stamp Set, Santa’s Signpost Framelits & Santa’s Workshop Specialty DSP.  This DSP has been hand-drawn with white flocking on one side.  You can also purchase the Stamp Set & Framelits as a Bundle.

Being Day 9, I get to share with you another line from the Aussie version of the “12 Days of Christmas”.

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

A Cockie in a Bottlebrush Tree,

2 flying Doctors,

3 Drovers watching

4 working dogs

5 golden Ducks

6 Boomers hopping

7 Silos fillingSanta's-Workshop---Inside

8 Ladies baking

9 Nippers racing…”

My card is one we created in our class on Friday.  I started to case the sample on Page 18 of the Holiday Catalogue, but as usual it sort of went off on its own, but the catalogues are always a great way to start.

By clicking on the link below, you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own card & holder.  The tutorial includes both the products used & the measurements (metric & imperial).  Yes, Stampin’ Up! Demos are able to use the tutorials for classes.

My card today is yet another created in one of our classes a few weeks ago.  I actually Dashing-Deer-2---Insidecreated this card from a sketch I had saved some time ago & then when I went looking for something on Pinterest, can you believe it, up popped my card.  I thought I was seeing things until I recognized a few things were a little different.  Has that happened to you?  I will be honest & say it has a couple of times to me.  Scary!

The card was actually created when the Dashing Along DSP first come out for the limited promotion BUT you will be happy to know that it has been made available to everyone in Aus & NZ as some of the sales of certain products have exceeded the forecast.  You can now order from by clicking on the link above or below.

12 Days of Christmas – Day 5

12-Days-of-ChristmasG’Day Stampers,

Today is Day 5 of the 12 Days of Christmas.

Now for Day 5 of the Australian version of the 12 Days of Christmas.

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

A cockie (cockatoo) in a bottlebrush tree

2 flying Doctors,

In Australia, Christmas & Summer is very much all about the game of cricket.  We play it on the beach, in back yards, front yards, in the bush, in the streets.  Big kids, little kids, kids at heart all play.  We use anything we can get our hands on for a bat, wicket & ball.  Mind you, I have played where sometimes everyone thinks they are playing for “sheep stations” as it is so serious & completive, but mostly it is all about the fun!

Boxing Day is all about the 1 day match in Melbourne when we are glued to our TV’s for the day!

My card today is using the Frosted Floral Suite which includes the First Frost Stamp Set, Frosted Bouquet Framelits & the Frosted Floral Specialty DSP which are all from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  The Stamp Set & Framelits are also available as a Bundle.

12 Days of Christmas – Day 3

12-Days-of-ChristmasG’Day Stampers,

Today is Day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas.

As I grew up in a small country town way out west, this little song has always stuck in my head.  We use to sing it all the time.  To this day whenever I see a roo, especially around this time of the year, this song pops into my head.

Now for Day 3 of the Australian version of the 12 Days of Christmas.6-White-Boomers

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

A cockie (cockatoo) in a bottlebrush tree

2 flying Doctors,

3 Drovers watching…”

Today it is all about the 2018 Holiday Catalogue as I’ve used the Great Joy Stamp Set which is fantastic for colouring.  The stocking has actually been coloured with the Watercolour Pencils, no Blender Pen, no Aqua Painter but with lots of shading with the pencils.

I’ve used the Embossing Paste with a small amount of Crumb Cake Ink Re-Fill to create my background.

Yep, today I have another card to share with you using the Share What You Love Suite.

I actually cased this idea (copy & share everything) from Pinterest & thought what a great idea.  The card has actually been created “book style”.  I have changed it a bit to suit what I wanted to do with my card.  Please let me know if it was from you as I couldn’t find the link.  Thank you for your inspiration.Share-What-You-Love-2---Ins

It was also one of the cards we created in our class a little while ago.

The flowers have been cut from the Share What You Love Specialty DSP.  Don’t you love it when you can do that?
