Peaceful Deer

G’Day Friends,

Today’s card is the 2nd one I created from Monday.  You can find all the details by clicking HERE.

Now the 1st card was aimed at the males but this card is for the females AND both created with the 1 small piece of DSP & changing out the Cardstock colours & images.

I’ve still gone with the Peaceful Deer Bundle from the current July-December Mini Catalogue added Merry Merlot & Blusing Bride Cardstock.  I have also rotated it to Portrait.

A square piece of now retired Sale-a-Bration DSP has been randomly chopped into 2 pieces.  The 1st piece has been used on the top card while the 2nd piece is used on today’s card.  As this paper is no longer available, you can always change it to what you have in your stash.

The sentiment has been stamped direct onto a piece of Basic White in Merry Merlot Ink prior to being adhered to a layer of Blushing Bride Cardstock & then to the Merry Merlot Base Card.

The snowflake is from the pack of Wonderful Snowflakes which is in the current Mini Catalogue.  The deer was stamped onto Basic White Cardstock with Crumb Cake Ink, punched with the Deer Builder Punch & adhered over the top of the snowflake with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card was finished off with Elegant Faceted Gems randomly adhered to the card front.

Merry Christmas

G’Day Friends,

I thought I would share this simpe & elegant Christms Card I quickly created the other day for a friend.

A piece of Night of Navy was embossed with the now retired Subtle 3D Embossing Folder before being adhered to a Thick Basic White Base Card.

The poinsettia has been die cut from Basic White Cardstock with the Poinsettia Dies before being layered onto each other & adhered to the Card Front with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I must admit I haven’t used these Dies in some time but think they are perfect for this card, don’t you?

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Deer Stamp Set, stamped onto Basic White Cardstock in Night of Navy Ink, trimmed back to size before being adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To complete the card I adhered 3 x Pearls to the centre of the Poinsettia & then randomly to the card front.

I think this is the type of Christmas Card that can be easily recreated for a large number of your friends.

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

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights December

G’Day Friends,

Today I am hopping along with Kylie’s International Blog Hop for December.  This is a hop where Demonstrators from all around the world chose to take part highlighting all our lovely product.  If this is the first time visiting my blog, thank you so much for dropping by.

You are able to vote for my card Here or by clicking on the photo below.

Thank You is our theme for the hop.  Many of us don’t take the time to thank the ones we love or care about.  It can be the simple things that they do for us each day or big things that they have done recently.  It is so important to say thank you and show our appreciation for the hard work of others and the kindness that they show.

I love creating this type of card & posting them off in the mail or leaving them in my neighbours letterboxes.  Do you know of anyone you can post or give this type of card to?  I’m sure they would appreciate it.

I had the Harvest Meadows Suite from the current July-December Mini Catalogue, sitting on my desk from a past project so decided to go with it.  I seem to be using this Suite a lot but you do that sometimes when you love playing with a certain stamp set, suite, etc.

I chopped a piece of the lovely Harvest Meadow DSP into 2, adhered 1 piece to the bottom of a piece of Basic White prior to flipping the 2nd piece to the opposite side & adhering this piece to the top of the same Basic White.  It was then popped up onto a Crumb Cake Base Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest Stamp Set was stamped onto Basic White in Misty Moonlight Ink, die cut with the Natures Dies before being adhered across the middle of the Card Front.

The flower was die cut from Basic White Cardstock with Natures Dies prior to adding ink with the Sponge Daubers.  Not only does it give the card a bit of a wow, it also highlights the lovely texture in the shape created from the Dies.  I’ve used Bumblebee, Mint Macaron & Crumb Cake Inks.

I finished the card off by adding Gold Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots along with a Bumblebee Trinket.

Don’t forget to click HERE to vote for me.  I would really apreciate it!

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

Happy Stamping!

I’ve created something a little different for the males in our lives today.  The males still need Christmas Cards & that is what I’ve created for you wth the Peaceful Deer Bundle from the current July-December Mini Catalogue.

I randomly chopped a square of DSP into 2 pieces & used 1 of the pieces to create my cardtoday.  The DSP was from Sale-a-Bration which means it is no longer available but you could always change it up to what you have in your stash.

The sentiment was stamped onto Basic White with Cherry Cobbler Ink, adhered to a Crumb Cake layer before being adhered to a Basic Black Card Base.

The snowflake is from the pack of Wonderful Snowflakes which is in the current Mini Catalogue.  The deer was stamped onto Basic White Cardstock, punched with the Deer Builder Punch & adhered over the top of the snowflake with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card was finished off with Matt Black Dots being randomly adhered to the Card Front.

Nature’s Harvest

G’Day Friends,

Thanks so much for popping in this morning.

I’ve been playing with the Harvest Meadow Suite, Page 54 of the July-December Mini Catalogue of late.  Sometimes, it can take me a little while to start playing with a new set but when I do, I then have to keep going as I discover how much i love it.  This Suite is no exception.

In fact, this was our November Challenge over in our #WCMG.

I have just realised that it is a Monochromatic Card in that it only uses Misty Midnight & Basic White with a slight touch of Night of Navy, so all blues & white.

The flowers were stamped onto Basic White Cardstock & die cut with the Harvest Dies.  The long reeds were die cut with the same Dies but from Night of Navy Cardstock.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set along with that lovely shape.  Isn’t it just a gorgeous shape?

The Card Front is a little different in that I cut part of it away prior to adhering the panel to the front.  I am not sure what it is called but I think it suits the Sketch Layout.

The card was finished off with a couple of Silver Metallic Pearls.

Now onto today’s card!

It is one I created during our 12 Days of Christmas – #12daysofchristmas – over in our World Card Making Fb Group.  We have just finished the 12 days & all in time for Christmas.

This is a fun technique that the lovely Annette from the Stampin with the Bees shared with us where we played with our White Craft Ink.  I haven’t played with this fun technique for so long & it was great to see how the White looked on our cards.

To create my simple & easy card, I dragged the White Craft ink over a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock, let it dry before adhering it to a Thick Basic White Card Base.

I then adhered a snowflake from the Wonderful Snowflakes Embellishments to the Card Front with a Mini Glue Dot.  I tied a large bow from the Silver Twine prior to adhering it to the centre of the snowflake with a Mini Glue Dot.

The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Basic White Cardstock in Night of Navy Ink, die cut with the Layering Circles Dies & adhered over the bow & snowflake with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

To complete the card I randomly adhered Sequins from the Subtle Shimmer Sequins to the Card Front.

Easy peasy, right?

Can you believe how fast Mondays come round?

My card today is one I created for a challenge in a FB Group – CASE-ing Tuesday

This time it was the 2021 July-December Catalogue, P30.

I decided to try & create a male card, although it could be for male or female.

I’ve used the lovely Harvest Meadow DSP for my strips.  They were adhered to a piece of Very Vanilla & then to a Misty Moonlight Base Card.A piece of the same DSP was chopped before being adhered over the top of the strips with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The reeds were die cut with the Harvest Dies in Misty Moonlight prior to being adhered to the DSP panel.  The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set, stamped in Bumblebee Ink onto Very Vanilla, trimmed back to size & shape & adhere to the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Perfectly Plaid Chocolate Holder

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for dropping by today.

I have a fun 3D project to share with you.  We are having a 12 Days of Christmas over in our World Card Making FB Group.  I am collabrating with 4 other Stampin’ UP! Demos who are sharing a project of their choice each day up to the 30th November.  Just in time for Christmas.  You are able to join us if you like.

I’ve created a small Chocolate Holder to fit a Guiylan Chocolate.  In fact, this little holder was created for an upcoming Twilight Market I am attending in a couple of weeks.

I’ve used the returning Heartwarming Hugs DSP from the current Mini Catalogue along with the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set & the matching Pine Tree Punch.

To create along with me, here is the video.

Manly Monday with Friends are like Seashells

G’Day Friends,

Once again, its time for Manly Monday!

Today I have something a little different to share with you in that I pulled the Friends are like Seashells Stamp Set off my shelf.  Sad to say, this lovely stamp has not been used in sometime.

So now I have my Stamp Set, its Manly Monday, now to decide on the colours which is where Very Vanilla comes into play.

I have the both Cardstock & Stamp Set so its time to bring in colours that have not seen the light of day for sometime.  Out pops Cinnamon Cider along with Cherry Cobbler & Crumb Cake.  I’m not keen on Cinnamon Cider, Cherry Cobbler I will play with but Crumb Cake, now that is a keeper.  Well, that I have 1 colour that I love lol, I don’t want to make it too hard for myself.

Where to from here?  “Keep it simple”, I keep telling myself which is exactly what I think I’ve done.

The sentiment is from the Best Year Stamp Set, stamped direct onto the Very Vanilla in Cinnamon Cider Ink prior to being adhered to a Cinnamon Cider Base Card.

The shell was stamped in Crumb Cake Ink, again on Very Vanilla, die cut with the Seaside Seashells Dies & embossed with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.

The Cherry Cobbler DSP has been adhered to a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock, then to Very Vanilla with Stampin’ Dimensionals & finally to the Cinnamon Cinder Base Card.

Sweet Ice Cream #2

G’Day Friends,

Today’s card is taken from the same sketch & with basically the same supplies I shared with you last week.  You can find the first card here.

The Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set is such a fun set with lots of fun images.  Again, the paper is the Pansy Petals DSP.  I am having so much fun creating with these papers.

The colours are Old Olive. So Saffron & Rich Razzleberry along with Soft Suede.

It was finished off with the Holiday Rhinestones – one of my favourites & “go to” embellishments.

All I’ve done is changed out the colours & it looks a completely different card.  What do you think?
