cards, Catalogues, Christmas


I’ve told you how much I love the Dove of Hope Bundle right … 🙂  It’s a gorgeous set.

I have shared a few cards already.  This one uses the Tis The Season Designer Series Paper. 

It’s simple in design but the dove is heat embossed in Gold and diecut.  Great to have the matching Detailed Dove Dies.  The gorgeous Real Red Sheer Ribbon is beautiful and soft and so easy to tie bows.  The ribbon was wrapped around the card mat and paper piece before adhering it to the Garden Green card base. 

Here is the beautiful Dove of Hope stamp set.  What do you think?? Are you liking it??

In Australia?  It is now available in my store -> HERE.  

Please use the Host Code:26MVE4MV  I appreciate each and every order.  Thank You. Be sure you don’t mark it anonymous when you order or I can’t send out you a little Thank You.

Over the weekend I joined in on an Online Craft Day with some Demonstrator friends.  It was lots of fun with creating and sharing.  We had challenges along the way too and even some business chat with the lovely Clare from Stampin’ Up! joining us.  We had all planned to meet together BUT that couldn’t happen … Never mind. 🙂

This card is one I created for one of the challenges.  It was a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge so you had to choose 3 items in a row in a box.  I chose Embossing Folder, Designer Series Paper and Diecut Shape.

I had yet to use the Under My Umbrella set so thought I would pull it out.

Stampin' Up! Under My Umbrella

How did I go with the items for the challenge??

Embossing Folder – I used the Greenery Embossing Folder.  I think I ran the card through a little tight.  It did buckle a bit.  Something to be aware of.

Designer Series Paper – This was the beautiful Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper.  I  picked out the colours I used for the card from  this paper.  I chose Gorgeous Grape card mat. I used Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends as I didn’t have Melon Mambo Blends.  (I have just ordered them!!) and I used Rich Razzleberry too.

Diecut Shape – I diecut the white circle with the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Ok, I did add a punch to this card too. 🙂  I needed that to punch out the umbrella with the Umbrella Builder Punch.

The layout for this card came from the Case This Sketch #376 sketch.

I was happy with the finished card. I think I need to pull this set out and use it more.

Thanks for visiting me.

Have an awesome week.

Blog Hops, cards, Catalogues, Christmas


Today I am hopping along for Christmas in July with a great group of crafters.  There is some amazing talent in this group and I am honoured to be joining in.

For the Blog Hop we are featuring products from the new Holiday Catalogue beginning on August 4th.  I am excited to start creating with these products.  I know we may not feel too much like Christmas yet but once you start creating with these fantastic products you will quickly get in the mood.

For the Blog Hop today I am using the Dove Of Hope Bundle which has the gorgeous stamp set and dies.  I made 2 projects to share with you today.

The first card is a more simple design.  The dove is diecut with Whisper White card and it really shows off the crispness of the dove as well as the little embossed details.  Don’t you love the detail in the wings??

To complete the card I used a piece of the ‘Tis the Season Designer Series Paper adhered on to a Real Red card mat.  The leaves were stamped over the Garden Green card base in Garden Green ink.  For the sentiment it was stamped in black on to white card and then punched with the Timeless Label Punch. 

The next card is a stepped up version.

The red card mat was diecut with one of the Ornate Layers Dies with piece of the ‘Tis the Season Designer Series Paper added.

On this dove I diecut it with some of the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper.  This paper is gorgeous and has flocked designs on vellum There are 3 different designs in the pack.  I went for this “flourish” style.  I wasn’t sure how it would work.  I did find that some of the flocked pattern was flattened but you still get the pattern on the dove.

The sentiment this time was heat embossed in gold on to white card and punched with the Timeless Label Punch.  To add a little extra shine I cut a small strip of Gold Foil and flagged the end to go under the sentiment.

Now you are off to continue your Hop.  I hope the links work for you. 🙂

I have been playing with the Whale Done Bundle this past week getting ready for my Whale Done class.  This Whale Done is such a cute set.

While I can’t share you the cards we are doing for class.  You have to join in to see those ones I have a couple of other cards I am going to share with you.

Today’s card is very simple in design.  It uses the beautiful Whale of A Time Paper.  I wasn’t sure what to do with this particular print.  It is such a large design.  But really what more do you need.  I trimmed the piece down carefully to fit the card front so as not to lose much of the print.  It was then adhered to a Pretty Peacock Card base.

The sentiment was stamped in Memento Black and diecut with the Stitched Shapes Dies.

If you notice the turtle it has 2 colours on it.  To get this effect, I stamped the turtle first in Granny Apple Green and then sponged lightly around the edge of the turtle with Pretty Peacock ink.  It gives a cool effect. Then fussy cut with scissors.  Sorry no dies for this one. 🙂

The Whale Done Class is available Online or Face-to-Face.

Head back one or 2 posts to get all the details.

Have a great weekend.  Hope you get some creating in.

Wednesday’s WOW! #107.  I wanted to share a little tip I discovered – although maybe you had already discovered it – or maybe not!  Today’s tip – how to create easy water scenes with the Mountain Air stamp set.

The Mountain Air stamp set is a great one to create mountainous scenes.  I found when you turn the treeline stamp upside down it looks like water. You can stamp that under the mountains with the trees off the edge of the card so you won’t even see the trees.  I thought it was clever anyway. And it extends the scenes that you can create.

Below is a Card in a Box I shared recently.  You can see the water edge under the mountains at the back.

Below is a card I created some time ago  For some reason I stamped it in green on this card when I look at it … It could be a grassy field too right. 🙂

Hope you find it helpful when you use your set.

Haven’t got the Mountain Air Bundle yet? In Australia, you can order it through my store now -> HERE. It’s really not that expensive at $88 AUD.

This was another card created with the Comfort and Hope stamp set.

A paper hug with Comfort and Hope stamp set

To be honest I wasn’t sure where I was going with this card. Even though it is a simple card it took a long time. The sentiment alone took way longer than it should have!! After several variations I settled for this in the end. Still not sure whether I am loving it, but hey …I thought I would share it with you anyway.

I love the “Paper Hug” saying though.  That was stamped on Petal Pink and diecut with one of the Ornate Frames Dies. 

Have you noticed the Comfort and Hope stamp set? It’s a great one for those caring cards.  And great for sending Paper Hugs. 🙂

In Australia? I would love you to order it from me. See it my store now -> HERE.
