Just a Note…


G’Day Stampers,

I have a simple, quick & easy card for you today.  I am trying to use up as much DSP as possible before it retires.  Along with the DSP, I am also going to try & play with stamp sets that haven’t seen ink for some time.  This means that over the next couple of months you will see lots of cards using lots of retiring product.

This card took me all of about 10 minutes once I knew what I wanted to do & Crafting-Forever---Insidehow I was going to create it.  Don’t you just love this type of card.  I don’t think it needs much as the gorgeous DSP from the Color Theory Pack says it all.

By changing the colour & sentiment, it would be perfect for the males.

If you click on the link below, you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own card.

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights


G’Day Stampers,

Today I am once again taking part in Kylie’s International Blog Highlights where this month it is all about “LOVE”.  Thank you so much for everyone who voted for me last month.  It was very much appreciated.Lovely-Words---Inside

What is so different about this Blog Highlight?  YOU get to vote for your top 5 favourites.  The top ten will then get to take part in an international blog hop with Kylie & other Vote for Me Heretalented successful demonstrators.

What do I do?  All you have to do is click on the “Vote for Me” photo at the side or head on over to Kylie’s Blog, click on the heart in the top right hand side of the picture.

I wanted to challenge myself to creating with older product & not something from SAB or the Occasions Catalogue.  I think I have done so except for the Brushos.  I really have to stop myself from using these all the time.  Although in saying that I’ve only used the Gamboge & Yellow on my card today.  Mind you, it is nothing what I started out to create but I’m happy with it especially the colours.

353. Hugs & Kisses – Lovely Words Thinlits


Best Wishes

Petal-Palette-Bermuda-Bay - Inside

G’Day Stampers,

Today I am going to share with you one of the cards we created in our Creative Cards Class last Tuesday.  It is using the lovely Petal Passion Suite, Page 22 of the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  It includes the Petal Palette Stamp Set, Petals & More Thinlits, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Petal Passion Embellishments & the Petal Passion DSP.  I am loving this Petal-Palette-Bermuda-Bay--Suite, especially the papers.  The Stamp Set & Thinlits are also available as a Bundle.

I actually took my inspiration from the samples on Page 22 although changed a little to suit what I wanted.

I had a lovely morning & the ladies said they loved their cards which is always an added bonus.

True Gentleman


Today I am sharing with you our 2nd card created last Friday using the True Gentleman Suite from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue, Page 44.  I am actually loving the colours & design of the True Gentleman DSP.  Perfect for the males but which could also be used for females.

To create our shapes, we punched pieces of the DSP using the Tailored Tag Punch before layering them onto a piece of Night of Navy leaving a small amount showing aroundTruly-Tailored-1---Inside shapes.

The sentiment was coloured with the Chocolate Chip & Tranquil Tide Stampin’ Write Markers before stamping direct onto a piece of Very Vanilla.

A piece of Linen Thread was threaded threw a button from the True Gentleman Button Pack & added to the sentiment with a Mini Glue Dot.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Kylie’s International Top Ten February Winners Blog Hop


I was one of the lucky ones who made it to the top ten in Kylie’s International Blog Hop last month with this card using the Petal Palette.  Because of your vote, I get to hop along with 9 other lucky Demos.  Thank you to everyone who voted for me.  It is very much appreciated.

Once again our theme is “Sale-a-Bration and Occasions Catalogue Product”..

While creating this card for the hop, it suddenly occurred to me that it could go in the Springtime-Foil-DSP---Flowemail today for a friend who is celebrating her birthday.

I am loving the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP from the SAB 2nd release & available while stocks last.  It is perfect for colouring, fussy cutting, backgrounds & just about everything else you can think of.

I’ve coloured a couple of the flowers from the DSP with Stampin’ Blends, fussy cut & adhered to the card front.  The silver bling is actually Rhinestone Basic Jewels covered with VersaMark & heat set with Silver Emboss Powder.  I wanted something a little different & to match in with this gorgeous paper.

If you click on the link above the card, you will be able to download your free tutorial to create your own card.  It includes a list of products used, measurements (metric & imperial) plus the instructions..

Below the photo, you will find a Roll Call.  All you have to do is click on the names to take you over to their post.  Don’t forget to leave a little “love” while visiting.

When I first saw the Party Pandas Stamp Set in the 2018 Sale-A-Bration Catalogue an idea popped into my head.  Mind you, once I had started on the idea, it sort of sat on my desk for a week or 2 staring at me waiting to be finished.  Well I can say I did actually finish it some time ago but then decided it was going to be one of our cards that we would create in our Cards @ Toogoom Class.  That day was last Friday.

Along with the Party Pandas Stamp Set I’ve teamed it up with the Bubbles & Fizz DSP Inside-Party-Pandas-Lemon-L(Sale-A-Bration) plus the Woodland Textured Embossing Folder.  The Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday is from the same set & has been stamped 4 times onto Whisper White CS – 1 x Bermuda Bay, 1 x Daffodil Delight, 1 x Lemon Lime Twist & 1 x Memento Tuxedo Black Inks.

Don’t forget you too, can earn both the Party Pandas Stamp Set & the Bubbles & Fizz DSP for free when you spend $AUD90 while Sale-A-Bration is on.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
