Party Puffins

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for dropping by today.  It is always very much appreciated.

Last night we did a bit of Mystery Stamping which turned into a comedy sketch & ended up so confused that I think I will be redoing the video.  I think if I ended up confused so I know you will be too lol, so no video today!  In saying that, this is what happens when you go live!

I wanted to play a little with the fun Design a Daydream DSP which is available as a Host Reward & can be yours when spending $250 & over.  I will be honest & say, I think I am a little hooked with it!

Although I had a little bit of an idea of the layout, I wasn’t too sure about the rest of it.  My card sort of evolved as I went along.  I’m fairly happy with it though.

Friends are like Seashells

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for dropping by.

My card today is one we created in our Mystery Stamping a couple of weeks ago & thought I would share it with you.

I’ve been playing with the Soft Pastels of late & WOW, WOW, WOW!  I can’t seem to put the things down.

If you haven’t see them in the Annual Catalogue, do yourself a favour & grab them today, as you need these little beauties in your collection.  I love them so much that I’m planning on doing a series of classes with them, but more about that later.

Again it is an easy layout & one which you can use over & over while resulting in a completely different look.  But then again, that is what Mystery Stamping is all about – simple, easy but with a little bit of mystery!!!

Of course, when you have a great layout that you love & use over & over, there is no stopping.  I then shared a 2nd card I created that morning with different supplies.

My 2nd card I shared using the same layout has been created with the lovely limited Waves of the Ocean Collection.  This Collection will no longer be available after May 2.

Cardstock is Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy & Basic White.  The images have been stamped in Soft Suede, Basic Black & NIght of Navy Inks.  Of course the Waves of the Ocean DSP is from the Collection.

Belle & I were out & about early on our walk this morning.  In fact, it was still dark when we left home, but by the time we hit the beach, I was struck with the most amazing sunrise with the sun just starting to appear.  Can I just say, most days the sunrise is amazing but some more so than others.

As I sat down to create my card, I knew I wanted to try & capture the image into my card.  I think I have!

The circle was die cut with the Layering Circles Dies before being embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  To create the scene, the images were stamped onto a piece of Bsaic White Cardstock before being adhered to the back of the circle.

The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set.

Supplies –

Stamp Set – Oceanfront, Inspired Thoughts

Inks – Memento Tuxedo Black, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral

Cardstock – Basic White, Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral

Nature’s Prints

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for dropping by.  It is very much appreciated.

Last night was the first time we did our Mystery Stamping on a Monday Night.  A little different for me as I usually go to bed with the chooks & up with the birds!

I decided to play with some new product that will be in the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue & believe me, I loved them & I think you will too.

I was able to purchase the gorgeous Tea Boutique 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper along with the Sun Print’s Suite Collection in our Pre-Order.  I didn’t use the whole Collection but instead teamed Nature’s Prints Stamp Set up with the DSP.  I think it may have worked but I will let you be the judge.

It’s a simple & easy layout but one that showcases both the lovely Stamp Set AND the gorgeous DSP.

For the month of April, we are showcasing the lovely Oceanfront Stamp Set.  You need this set in your collection, believe me!

This set makes it so easy to create lovely projects with minimum supplies & effort!

I wanted to see if I could create something a little different wih this set using only the grass images.  I think I have achieved it, but you decide for yourself.

I’ve actually used 3 techniques on this card – can you guess what they are?  Check below to find out what they are…..

I am loving the gorgeous Pebbles Enamels Shapes from the January-June Mini Catalogue.  You are gonna need these, so do yourself a favour & grab some while you can.  Aren’t they just gorgeous?

Supplies –

Stamp Set – Oceanfront, Inspired Thoughts

Inks – Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso

Cardstock – Basic White, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron
