Tasteful Touches

G’Day Stampers,

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted but I have been posting on FB Page.  I have also been planning & designing for July’s classes including  a brand new one aimed at Beginner Stampers.  I am so excited about this one as not only is it aimed at the Beginner Stamper but we get to create with our Kits Collection.

These classes will be held each month either Online or In Person.

If you would like to join me for the In Person class, you must be registered by 4 July so that I can order your Kits.  This class is all about the Notes of Cheer Card Kit.

To register for either the Online or In Person Class, please click on this link –

Beginners Class – Kits Collection

As from today, Stampin’ Up! are having a DSP Sale on selected DSP for the month of July!  I couldn’t help myself as I placed an order this morning for the DSP that I didn’t have.

Not only is the sale happening but I will be sharing with you over the next month, simple & easy projects created with the selected DSP.

My first project has been created with the gorgeous In Good Taste DSP which just happens to be one of my favourites.

I’ve teamed the DSP up with the Whiskey Business Stamp Set, along with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

As I mentioned, very easy card but one that highlights the DSP & one that is perfect for male or female.

Butterfly Brilliance

G’Day Stampers,

Today I am sharing with you a card I created sometime ago but have never gotten round to sharing it with you.

Butterflies!  I love seeing them in my garden, flying out & in the flowers & plants  Some of them bright while others not so but all very beautiful just the same.

The butterflies have been stamped onto Basic White in Bermuda Bay, chopped into 3’s prior to adhering to a piece of Blushing Bride.  I didn’t go how these colours would suite but I am liking them.

Randomly chopping my layers & DSP into pieces is one of my favourite ways of creating my cards.  So what do I do this time round after stamping my image?  Chop into 3’s, of course.

The central butterfly is from the now retired Butterfly Bijou DSP.  I love that we have images on some of our DSP that also coordinate with our Dies.

To download a free PDF Tutorial, all you have to do is click on the link below.  It includes both A4 – Metric & Imperial plus Letter size measurements.  Of course we can’t forget the List of Products to create your project.

Happy Stamping!

Celebrate Sunflowers #3

G’Day Friends,

I do hope you all had a lovely weekend.

I am a little late in sharing my 3rd project with you featuring the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.

I am not normally a green person but I am loving the colour combination with this one.  I’m not sure if it is the touch of Pumpkin Pie in the sunflower or what it may be.

I’ve teamed Mint Macaron, Old Olive with touches of Pumpkin Pie & Soft Suede to create this one.

Sometimes we don’t know where our creations are heading but we keep pushing on with them so that the end result is as much a surprise to us as it is to you.

I’ve completed the card with a couple of Holiday Rhinestones.

This or That – Rooted in Nature

G’Day Friends,

Thanks so much for dropping by today!  It’s been a little while since my last post but hopefully I will be more consistent with the posting.

Over on my FB Page & in my VIP Group, I posted a This or That photo with 2 different Stamp Sets, asking which one they would like to see projects created for.  Rooted in Nature was the clear winner BUT that is not to say that I won’t be sharing projects for Sailing Home!

Today’s share is a simple one created with a very simple masking technique.

The sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set & was stamped in Night of Navy.

Heal Your Heart – Day 2

G’Day Stampers,

I have Card #2 of our #SimpleStamping to share with you today.  In fact it is the one I shared on my FB Page yesterday.

Again it is using the fantastic Sale-a-Bration products that you are able to earn during January & February.

This time round I’ve chopped into the Crushed Curry from the Regals 6 x 6 Pack to create my card today.  I am loving this DSP & the patterns!

The circles were punched with the 2″ & 2 1/4″ Circle Punches.  The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso Ink while the Ribbon is the lovely Faux Suede Trim.  The wooden leaf is from the In Good Taste Elements.

I’ll let you into a little secret – while taking the photo, I noticed a small ink mark on the circle…..  How to cover it?  I didn’t want bling as I thought the card was perfect for a male.  The Faux Suede Trim to the rescue!

~~~~~~~~

Crikey!  Thank you everyone who purchased the class yesterday.  There are still a few spots left for Creativity in a Box.  This class is all about he plush & sophisticated Peony Garden Suite BUT it is only for a limited time & limited number available!  This class closes Tuesday, 19 January

Oh So Ombre #2

G’Day Stampers,

Today is the 2nd day in my series of showcasing the gorgeous Sale-A-Bration Oh So Ombre DSP, Level 1.

12 Days of Christmas Tags – Day #4

G’Day Friends,

Thanks for popping by today. It is always very much appreciated.

I sure hope you are enjoying my Christmas Tags come card!

Today is Day #4!

Of course, once the tag has been created, we the turned them into cards by using the tag on the card. In saying that, you could always use your tag on a present & create another to place on your card. This way, you would then have a matching card to go with your tag!

Be sure to check out my FB Page.

If you didn’t want to use them for presies, why not just hang them on your tree!

Tag #4 – Little Treats

I am going to be sorry to see this little beauty retire – so many options, so many ideas, so little time!

I’ve teamed the stamp set with the gorgeous Snowflake Splendor DSP which is another that is retiring at the end of December. The colours in this DSP are some of my favourites.

You may be noticing that all my cards are fairly simple as I want the tags to be the star!

I do hope you have enjoyed my project today. Be sure to pop back tomorrow when I have another for you.

12 Days of Christmas Tags – Day #3

G’Day Friends,

Thanks for popping by today. It is always very much appreciated.

It’s Day #3 of sharing my Christmas Tags! I do hope you are enjoying them!

Of course, once the tag has been created, we the turned them into cards by using the tag on the card. In saying that, you could always use your tag on a present & create another to place on your card. This way, you would then have a matching card to go with your tag!

Be sure to check out my FB Page.

If you didn’t want to use them for presies, why not just hang them on your tree!

Tag #3 of Day 3 – Peaceful Boughs

I’ve teamed the lovely Peaceful Boughs with the gorgeous Poinsettia Place DSP which is from the Aug-Dec Mini Catalogue. A perfect match!!!!!

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set & must say it has been my go to sentiment set this Christmas.

I’ll let you in on a little secret. The tag actually opens so that you can write inside & not on the back!

Once I decided to create my card, I scored 3 lines above the piece of DSP. I do this a lot as sometimes I think it adds a little bit more interest! You could always add Ribbon if you wish but I want the Tags to be the star of the show so I’ve kept my cards fairly easy & simple.

I do hope you have enjoyed my project today. Be sure to pop back tomorrow when I have another for you.

12 Days of Christmas Tags

G’Day Friends,

Thanks for popping by today. It is always very much appreciated.

I am not sure if you were aware but myself & a fellow Stampin’ Up! friend, Robbie – Creations in Paper have been sharing lovely ideas for all your Christmas Tags on our FB Pages. This means that you are receiving 24 gorgeous ideas in time for Christmas.

Not only are we sharing our Christmas Tags but then we turning them into Christmas Cards. Mind you, in saying that, you don’t have to as it is just another option.

The cards & tags were all very easy & simple to create. Perfect for all those lovely Chrissy Pressies!

If you didn’t want to use them for presies, why not just hang them on your tree!

Today is #1 of Day 1 – Tag Buffet.

Once I had created my Tag, I embossed a piece of Whisper White with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. This was then layered onto a piece of Real Red & then to the Whisper White Thick Base Card.

The tag was then adhered to the centre of the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I decided to complete the card I would carry the Red Rhinetsones over to the Card Front. Easy peasy!!!

I sure hope you have enjoyed my project today & it has inspired you to go get crafty & create!

Be sure to check my blog over the next couple of days as I will be sharing more of the 12 Days of Christmas Tags with you.

12 Days of Christmas Tags

G’Day Friends

Thanks so much for stopping by. It is so very much appreciated!

I thought I would pop in & let you know that I have teamed up with a friend & fellow SU! Demo from the States to bring you 12 Days of Christmas Tags! But wait, we are then turning them into Christmas Cards.

There is one catch though – we are sharing them on our FB Pages. So if you haven’t followed my page or popped over, you could be missing out on some great creations & ideas just in time for Christmas. Of course, you don’t have to turn the tags into cards, you could just leave them as is.

Wanna sneak peak?
