Chat & Create – Stamping for Ava

G’Day Friends,

Card #3 is the show today!  Are you ready?

In case you have just joined me, I am showcasing the cards we created for our Charity morning for Ava.  You can read all about Ava’s Journey here.

Lots of yummy handmade food from our many volunteers around the community. Thank you so much.

Of course you can’t have yummy food without tea & coffee to wash it down.  This was our Coffee & Tea Station for the morning, where everyone could help themselves until lunch when we all played ladies with proper china!

Card #3 uses lots of pretty retired product but a perfect way to use up all the lovely DSP & to get 1 more use from the Stamp Set prior to selling.

Again, very simple & easy but one that proved very popular!

Card #3 – It’s Your Day!

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

Happy Stamping!

Chat & Create – Stamping for Ava

G’Day Friends,

Today I am sharing something a little different with you.

Last Friday, we had a very fun morning of chatting, drinking cups of tea & coffee, with lots of laughing, eating, singing, dancing & crafting!  All with little Ava & her family at the backs of our minds.  You can read all about Ava’s Journey here.

The event was sort of spur of the moment about 1 month before the day so we just went with the flow – if it can happen this way!  Happy to report it went off without a hitch & with a handful of volunteers to help us make the day so successful & fun.  Of course, you can’t forget all the many volunteers behind the scenes who never let us down with their yummy homemade sweets & entrees.  Thank you so much!

We had 9 tables which seated 6 to each table except for 2, which seated 8.  You can imagine the designing, cutting & prepping for each card.  I also had to bear in mind that 99% of the ladies had never stamped before the event!  Each table had 2 different designs.  That’s 18 designs!!!!!

Anyhow, we got there with each of them creating 2 cards each with lots doing 3, 4 & 5.  A lot of them shocked themselves with what they created.  I will say the imagination on some of the projects was fantastic.  No 2 were alike.  They loved walking around for show & tell, shocked to find that each table had completely different cards – lol!

We even had a little 4 year boy who was with his Nana & created 2 cards – 1 for mum & 1 for his Daycare Teacher!  He was so proud.  He then found me later on to have a little twist on the dancefloor with him.  He had dumped his Nana!!!!

Card #1 – Darling Donkeys

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.

950.  Birthday Wishes – Butterfly Brilliance

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

Happy Stamping!

Snail Mail Suite

G’Day Friends,

I’ve used a piece of the gorgeous Snail Mail DSP along the bottom, wrapped a piece of the Whisper White Twine from the Snail Mail Combo Pack, adhere it to a layer of Real Red & then to a Basic Grey Base Card.

The mushrooms have been die cut from the DSP with the Snail Dies – love these Dies – before being adhered to the Card Font with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I’ll let you in on a little secret – To make my DSP shapes more stable, I always cut another shape in Basic White or similar & adhere the DSP shape to the Basic White shape.  This way it makes your DSP shape a little more stronger.

The little envelope was die cut from a piece of Basic White Cardstock again with the Snail Dies, folded into shape before being adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink before being die cut with the shape from the Snail Dies & adhered to just the inside of the envelope with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card was then completed by randomly scattering 3 of the cute little Resin Hearts from the same Suite.

To purchase the PDF Tutorials for this Suite, be sure to click on the PDF Tutorial Sale Page.

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

Happy Stamping!

Enjoy Every Moment

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for visiting today.  It is always very much appreciated.

Today I am sharing a card I created from a piece of A5 Basic white Cardstock.

Some of the images from Enjoy Every Moment Stamp Set were randomly stamped direct onto a piece of A5 Basic White Cardstock before being chopped down to size.

I matched the Ink colours with the Cardstock Colours of – Misty Moonlight, Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake & Pumpkin Pie.

The sentiment is from the cute Pretty Perennials Stamp Set.

I will admit that these aren’t colours that I would normally go for but I am happy iwth the final result as they are perfect for the males.

Celebrate Sunflowers #2

G’Day Friends,

I have another project for you today using the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.

In fact it is one I took from the brand new Catalogue due to go live 4 May.

Again, I’ve used my Blending Brushes to blend Polished Pink Ink over a piece of Linen Cardstock – both new products in the Catalogue Cardstock left over.

It was then layered onto a piece of Basic White & then to a Mint Macaron Base Card.

The sentiment was stamped in Evening Evergreen Ink – new In-Colour – direct onto a piece of Mint Macaron before being die cut with the Tasteful Labels Dies.

A piece of Soft Sea Foam Cardstock was randomly stamped in Soft Sea Foam Ink with the small leaves from the Celebrate Sunflowers prior to being adhere to the back of the sentiment shape.

A piece of Flowers for Every Season Ribbon was then adhered to the back of the panel with Mini Glue Dots.

The sunflower shape was die cut from a piece of Basic White with the Sunflower Dies & then adhered to the centre of the Card Font before the panel adhered over the middle of the sunflower shape with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card was completed by randomly adhering Pearls to the Card Front.

Celebrate Sunflowers

G’Day Friends,

Thanks so much for popping in today!  It is always very much appreciated.

Today I thought I would do something a little different & share with you a project with one of the Bundles I love – Celebrate Sunflowers!

In fact, you will be happy to know that I will be sharing projects I’ve created with this Bundle all week just for you.

I was playing around with my Blending Brushes the other day & had a spare piece of Cardstock left over.  So as not to waste it, I thought it perfect to create a simple card to share with you today.

A piece of Basic White Cardstock has been blended with Bumblebee Ink & a Blending Brush.

I temp adhered this piece to a piece of Basic White Card prior to stamping the large sunflower direct onto the blended area plus ensuring that part of the image stamped over onto the Basic White Cardstock too.

To create a mask, I stamped the same image onto scrap paper prior to fussy cutting along the stamped lines.

This mask was temp adhered to the stamped image prior to stamping the single leaf image around the sunflower in Early Espresso Ink.

I carefully removed the mask & the sponged Cardstock before adhering the panel to a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock.

I adhered this piece to the partially stamped Basic White ensuring that all images are matched in perfectly or as close as can be.

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set & was stamped straight onto the Basic White layer in Early Espresso prior to adhering to a Bumblebee Base Card.

The card was completed by adhering 5 x Bumblebee Enamel Dots to the Card Front.

Tip – You could always die cut a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock with the Sunflowers Dies & add to the top of the stamped sunflower.

If you have enjoyed my card today, be sure to pop back in a couple of days when I will be sharing my 2nd project with you.

A Little Lace #2

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for popping by today.

This is my 2nd card this week featuring the sweet A Little Lace Stamp Set.  So many ideas are now popping into my head including why haven’t I played with this set more throughout the year?

A little bit colouring with the Stampin’ Blends of Daffodil Delight & Petal Pink along with a little bit of random line drawing around the edge with my Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Marker & a little flicking of colour with the same Marker along with a few lines around the edge of the card for a little bit of a different look.  The Base Card is also Pretty Peacock.

I am loving the little Gold Metallic Pearls to complete the card.  They really make the whole card pop.

I actually took the layout from a challenge site on FB but now of course, can’t find it.  I thought the stamp set perfect for the challenge.

I hope you enjoyed this week of Anything Goes!  Don’t forget to pop back Monday for a week of a creating with a certain favourite bundle of mine but shhhhhhhhhh…….

A Little Lace

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for popping by today.

Today’s card has been taken from one I saw on Pinterest by Annette Elliot.  I just loved the colours & the simple layout, although I have changed mine a little as you do.  Thank you Annette for your inspiration.

I’ve used the sweet “A Little Lace” Stamp Set & one that I am wondering why I haven’t played with more as I am loving it.  I can see a few more projects coming with this set.

Did you know the Medium Daisy Punch fits the large daisy in this set?  Isn’t that fantastic?Did you notice I’ve used 4 of the retiring 2019-2021 In ColoursTerracotta Tile, Purple Posy Cardstocks, Purple Posy & Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends plus Pretty Peacock Ink?  Oh not to mention the Terracotta Tile Butterfly Gems to complete my card.

Both the Classic Label Punch (one of my favourite Punches) & the Layering Ovals Dies are retiring too.  Check them out in the Last Chance Product List.

Actually, I’ve used a lot of retiring products to create my card today as I’ve just realised the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder is on the list too!
