Peaceful Prints DSP #1

G’Day Stampers,

I hope you are enjoying all the lovely products from Sale-A-Bration.  I know I am, especially the DSP – Designer Series Paper.

I’m showcasing the Peaceful Prints this week which just happens to coordinate with the Peaceful Deer Bundle from the July-December Mini Catalogue.

This lovely paper can be yours for FREE when spending $90 or more.  Check it out here.

Did you know that you could receive the Peaceful Deer Bundle when joining Stampin’ Up! during Sale-a-Bration?  Why not take advantage of this great deal while you can.  Ask me how or click on the link to join TODAY!

Check out all the other Bundles you are able to chose from –

This DSP is so versatile as it can be used for all occasions which I am showcasing today.  This card could be for babies, birthdays, Christmas or anything on your list.

I decided to also go way out of my comfort zone & create with colours from our Colour Coach – Garden Green, So Saffron & Early Espresso.  It took me a little to adjust but now that it is finished, although a clean look & simple layout, I am very happy with the final result.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

G’Day Stampers,

Today is Day 3 of showcasing the  lovely  Beautifully Penned DSP today from Sale-A-Bration.

This DSP is so versatile as it can be used for all occasions including Female & Male.  I’ve shared a male card, a Christmas card & now today it is all about the females.

Beautifully Penned DSP #2

G’Day Stampers,

Today is Day 2 of showcasing the  lovely  Beautifully Penned DSP today from Sale-A-Bration.

This lovely paper can be yours for FREE when spending $90 or more.  Check it out here.

This time round I’ve created a black & white Christmas Card.  Black & white always screams elegant which I think this one is.  If you leave the bow off it could also be the perfect card for the male at Christmas too.

Did you notice the embossed background?  It is the new Timber 3D Embossing Folder from the July-December Mini Catalogue.  Don’t you love how subtle it is on this card?

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Deer Stamp Set, also from the same catalogue.Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

Beautifully Penned DSP

G’Day Stampers,

Thank you for dropping by!

Today is Monday & that means it is time for Manly Monday where I get to share with you a project I’ve created mainly for the fellas.

I’ve used the Beautifully Penned DSP today from Sale-A-Bration & wanted to share that it can be used for both female & male.  Father’s Day is fast approaching in Australia & I wanted to create something for my Dad so that I could get it away in the mail in time for his day.

This lovely paper can be yours for FREE when spending $90 or more.  Check it out here.

The leaf has been die cut from Basic Black Cardstock with the Forever Flourishing Dies.  I tied a small bow with White Baker’s Twine before adhering to the stem of the leaf with a Mini Glue Dot.

The sentiment is from Best Year Ever & was stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Evening Evergreen Ink & adhered to the inside the Base Card allowing it to show through the front.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

Peaceful Deer

G’Day Friends,

Today I am sharing a card I created when I first received my pre-order for the new July-December Mini Catalogue.   It’s called Peaceful Deer AND there is matching DSP in the 2nd lot of Sale-a-Bration which could be yours when spending $90 or over.

I’ve adhered a piece of the lovely DSP to a piece of Basic White Cardstock & then to a Basic Black Base Card prior to die cutting a shape in the front with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

I adhered a snowflake to the bottom left of the shape prior to adhering a punched deer t the top which was punched with the matching Deer Builder Punch.

The sentiment is from the same Stamp Set & was stamped inside the shape in Real Red Ink.

To finish the card, I tied a small bow from Basic White Baker’s Twine, adhered it to the deer’s neck with a Mini Glue Dot & randomly added 3 Clear Rhinestones to the inside of the card.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

Best Year Ever

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for dropping by!

This week I want to start a day each week where I will share with you a project created especially for the males.  Some of us have a hard time creating for the male.  I do hope you will join me & enjoy creating along with me.

Today is one that is fairly easy & simple but one that I am more than happy with.  PLUS it uses the FREE DSP from Sale-a-Bration – Peaceful Prints.  Do you recognise it?

A piece of the DSP has been randomly chopped into 3 pieces before being adhered to a piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock, then to a piece of Basic White & finally to a Basic Black Base Card.

The sentiment is from Best Year Ever Stamp Set, stamped onto a die cut shape in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, adhered to a Basic Black die cut shape with Adhesive & then adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Both the shapes have been die cut with the fantastic Tasteful Labels Dies.

Male cards do not have to be hard, they can be as simple & easy as you like AND still look lovely.Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

August Blog n Hop Blog Hop

G’Day Stampers,

Welcome to the Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop for August!

We are a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing our love of Stampin’ Up! You are free to join us if you like, but we do ask that you be a current SU! Demo & that you use current SU! products.

Thank you for visiting.  If you are starting from my blog all you have to do is click on the next arrow below to continue.  There is also a Roll Call at the end of this post in case you get a little lost.

For my card today, I decided to grab Sailing Home from my shelf.  It is one of my favourites but one that hasn’t seen ink in some time.

A piece of Basic White Cardstock was embossed with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder before being adhered to a piece of Night of Navy & then to a Thick Basic White Base Card.

The shape was die cut from Basic White with the Painted Labels Dies, the yacht stamped in the middle of the circle in Nigh of Navy Ink along with the birds & then adhered to the left side of the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish it off, I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of scrap Basic White in Night of Navy Ink, chopped it back to size & into a banner shape before adhering it to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

As I mentioned, a very simple & easy card but one that I am more than happy with.

Thanks again for visiting my blog today.

Peaceful Deer

 

G’Day Friends,

Today I am sharing a small tag that I’ve created by casing the project from Page 9 of the Sale-a-Bration Catalogue. 

Of course as most times, they sort of take a different spin & turn into their own which is exactly what this tag has done – sort of!

I’ve used the Peaceful Deer Bundle from the July-December Mini Catalogue along with the Peaceful Prints DSP from Sale-a-Bration which is FREE when you place an order of $90 or more excluding P&H.

After blending Crumb Cake around the edges of a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock with a Blending Brush, I then flicked Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker over the top to give a little more depth & interest.

Be sure to check out the card I created from my tag which I will share on Thursday along with a PDF Tutorial for you to create your own.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

Penguin Place

G’Day Friends,

I do hope you are all safe while in lockdown in some parts of Australia or the world.

Today sees the new July-December 2021 Mini Catalogue go live!  Oh & of course the 2nd lot of Sale-a-Bration from 3 August – 30 September.

Of course, I couldn’t let the opportunity pass without showing you a few projects in the next few weeks that I’ve created using both new product from the Mini & FREE product from SAB which is your for FREE when spending over $90 or $180.

I’ve used the fun Penguin Place Bundle which includes the Penguin Place Stamp Set & the Penguin Builder Punch.  It has been teamed up with the matching Penguin Playmates DSP which is from SAB.

Both the Base Card & Ribbon is Fresh Freesia, while the Penguin & sentiment have been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The little present & bowtie are Balmy Blue.

The embellishments are Fresh Freesia Jewels which I think just finished the card off perfectly.  A little bit of new & a little bit of old!  What do you think?

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

Enjoy Every Moment

G’Day Friends,

Today I am sharing something a little different in that it is one of our creations from our Technique Class last month.

I love my techniques & enjoy playing & creating.  Mind you, sometimes I’m not sure where they are heading until I’m finished.  In saying that, not all of them are perfect, but the best part is the fun!

We played with our lovely Blending Brushes, using them 4 different ways including Basic Blending, Colour Blocking Sun Rays & Northern Lights.

I’m sharing with you one of the Basic Blending card we created with the lovely Polished Pink In Colour, which was teamed up with the Enjoy the Moment Stamp Set.  In fact the image has been stamped in Evening Evergreen Ink & finished off with a couple of Polished Pink Jewels & a bow which was tied with White Baker’s Twine from the Essentials Pack.

Sometimes the simple & easy techniques are the ones that give a wow.  Do you agree?

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!
