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.

322. Celebrate – Amazing You


Beachy Little Christmas


I certainly hope you all had a lovely relaxing & happy Christmas spending time with family & friends.

I created the card today some time ago, originally for a blog hop but it completely slipped my mind.

When I first saw Beachy Little Christmas  in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue, I saw a wreath using the shells.  I’m quite happy with the result.  In fact, we eventually did it in one of our classes & the ladies loved it especially when they could see another way of using the images.  I must say the set suits our lifestyle down the coast of Australia.

The images have been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured with the Watercolour Pencils & Blender Pen.

It’s a little different but one I’m happy with.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’




286. Christmas Wishes – Beachy Little Christmas



Basic Sponging meets…

… the beach & the Hometown Greetings Edgelits.


Our card today is one we created in our class a couple of weeks ago.  You may have seen the 1st one I shared with you already.   I love it when I can get multiple uses from my Stamps & Dies & this is just one of those occasions where I am doing a happy dance & created Beach Huts.  You can see another card I created using the same Edgelits here.

In our classes we have started on Techniques & the ladies are loving them.  I have a list that they would like to try out so that saves me trying to think of new ones to teach.

Don’t forget you are able to download the Technique Tutorials for FREE by clicking on the Free Techniques Tutorials Page.  Yes, SU! Demos are able to use them for their classes too.  The page will be updated every 2 weeks with new techniques.

272. Celebrate – Hometown Greetings Edgelits


Happy Retirement


G’Day Stampers,

Once again I’ve been playing with the Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies & have been wanting to use them other than for Christmas.  We created 2 cards in our class on Friday using the same Dies but both very different which I will share with you later on in the week.

For my card today, I cut 3 of the houses from Whisper White CS using the smaller Die & then cut them back to the size & shape I wanted before colouring with the Watercolour Pencils so that they looked like beach huts.

For my scene, I masked off a circle for the sun punched using the 1/2” Circle Punch & then coloured with the Watercolour Pencils.  Once the mask was removed I lightly coloured the sun with the Daffodil Delight Pencil & carried it through onto the ocean.  The sun was highlighted with the Clear Wink of Stella.

A circle has been cut into a piece of Whisper White CS overlapping on the left hand side of the Card using the Layering Circles Framelits.

The chair is from Colourful Seasons (available in a Bundle) & has been stamped direct onto the same Whisper White in Bermuda Bay & the seat in Crumb Cake Inks.  The drink is in Pumpkin Pie.

The branch has been stamped in Crumb Cake while the flowers are in Daffodil Delight.  To pop them a little more, I then added Pumpkin Pie to the centres & blended with the Blender Pen.

The piece of scenery was then adhered behind the stamped Whisper white & trimmed from the left hand side before layering onto a piece of Crumb Cake CS & then to the Base Card – Bermuda Bay.  The beach huts were then adhered in place with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments & stamped direct onto the Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black.  To finish the card I randomly adhered Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the front & flower centres.

Why not give it ago & check out your stamps & Dies with new eyes.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’




Beachy Little Birthday


G’Day Stampers,

I am trying to get back into the swing of things but I am finding it hard to do.  Once you get out of a routine, it is sometimes very had to get back into it.

My card today is one we created last Friday in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class.  The ladies loved how you could use it for all occasions.  It has been created using the lovely little “Beachy Little Christmas” set from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  I fact, I will be honest & say this is my favourite set in the catalogue.

I know the catalogue is jam packed with gorgeous new product, but this set screams “ME!”.  It is a wonder you didn’t hear me yelling from where you live as I was so happy to see something like this. Thank you Stampin’ Up!September
