Remarkable You….

…. is one of my favourites & is on the Retirement List.20170408_091111_resizedblog (2)

I love this set & haven’t used it in awhile, so I thought I would share with you a card I did a couple of weeks ago inspired from a card I found on Pinterest.  Thank you Alison for your inspiration.

I layered a piece of “Floral Boutique” DSP to a Whisper White Card Base.

2 flowers from “Remarkable You” Stamp Set were stamped direct onto scrap Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink before being coloured with Melon Mambo & Old 20170408_091124_resizedinsiOlive Watercolour Pens & Aqua Painter.  Once dry, I then fussy cut both images before adhering them to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The leaves were cut from Old Olive CS by running through the Big Shot with the Rose Garden Thinlits, trimming down to have only the leaves before adhering to the Card with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

The sentiment is from the “Lift Me Up” Stamp Set, stamped onto a piece of scrap Whisper White CS, fussy cut & adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A small bow was then tied from Whisper White Baker’s Twine (retired) & adhered with a Mini Glue Dot.

For the inside, I adhered a piece of the same “Floral Boutique” DSP to a piece of Whisper White CS & adhered it inside.

It’s a very quick card but one with a punch with just the pop of Melon Mambo in the flowers.

Don’t forget to grab your set before it is gone forever.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’



Best Wishes

Good Morning Stampers,

I’m a little late in posting today – sort of got sidetracked on our walk this morning.20160801_101333_resizedblog

I have set myself a goal in that I am going to use every stamp I have from the catalogue this year.  It is so easy to overlook some of our older favourite stamps in favour of the new ones from the Occasions & Holiday Catalogues.  Don’t worry, I will be using my newer stamps too, but just wanted to dust off my older stamps.

Today’s card is one using “Remarkable You” Stamp Set but with a little bit of colouring, embossing & fussy cutting, not to mention a different layout, it can give the stamp a whole new lease of life.

I’ve kept my card very simple letting the flower speak for itself.  Teaming it up with a bright Card Base & touches of Black, I think it makes the image “POP“, but I would really like to know what you think?

If you click on the link above the photo, you will be able to download the Free Tutorial to create your own card.  Don’t panic if you don’t have the same supplies, just replace them with what you have in your stash.  You could even create the background using DSP.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’




161. Best Wishes – Remarkable You



Remarkable You

Although my card today is a very simple one & with colours I don’t normally play with, I am rather happy with the final result.  I am really loving the Yellows & Greys together with#2---July lots of White Space & touches of Greens.

I played with the sketch from last month to create my card, along with DSP & Blender Pens, not to mention a little bit of fussy cutting but hey I love that bit!

The colours I used were Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz & Old Olive.  The DSP is Basic Grey from the Neutrals Paper Pack.  The Ribbon is retired but easily replaced with Twine, Card or  Washi Tape.

Don’t forget, the Free Tutorial to create your own card includes Measurements (Imperial & Metric) plus a list of Supplies used to create my card.

Until next time, Happy Sampin’

Happy Birthday Amber

Today’s card is one I created earlier on in the month for my niece’s birthdays.  Amber loves purple!  You can see Dan’s Red Card here, along with the Free Tutorial.

Both Amber & I went out for lunch a couple of days early to celebrate their birthdays (Dan was there in spirit).  We then come home & spent the afternoon sewing….  I am teaching her little by little but I think she has the hang of it for now until she wants to venture into some more involved.

Until, next time, Happy Stampin’



CPC58 meets Remarkable You

I had to create a couple of birthday cards for my nieces & saw this great challenge over at058-232x300 Craft Project Central that fitted perfectly with the stamp set I wanted to use.  Thank you ladies for a great challenge & for your inspiration.  Please be sure to hop on over & join the challenge.

My nieces just happen to be identical twins, although I don’t think they look anything alike.  Over the years I can honestly say I have never given them the same thing whether it be a present or card, but this time round I  thought I would shock them with the same card BUT in their favourite colours of colours.  Dannielle loves red, so today I am sharing her card.

Be sure to click on the link below for your free tutorial to create your own card & then enter it in the CPC challenge.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’


139. Happy Birthday – Remarkable You



You are Remarkable

G’day Stampers,

I am sharing a card we will be creating in our Technique Class this Sunday.

We created a “Pop Out Swing Card” using the gorgeous “Remarkable You” Stamp Set.  We also played with Aqua Painters by doing a little bit of Water Colouring & Sponging.

026wma-blogIf you haven’t created one of these cards, be sure to do so as they are very easy & so much fun to do.

I’ve had this stamp set for some time & finally managed to create what I wanted with it.  From the first I laid eyes on the set, I immediately thought of a water lily.  Funny how our minds work!

The Whisper White on the front of the card has been embossed with the Fluttering EF which I think fits perfectly with the set.  There is always butterflies & dragonflies around water lilies.

We completed the card by randomly scattering Rhinestones around it.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
