cards, Onstage, swaps


As you may know the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event is on right now and I am in Brisbane for the Live event.  It is very exciting!  Part of the fun of the event is swapping with other demonstrators. It’s great sharing ideas and meeting up with others.

I had grand plans for swaps again this year but with college assignments, Stampin’ Up! stuff, family stuff and life it just didn’t work out.  I had my design worked out though.

Although I didn’t get to make a number of them as swaps I made one ready for the display board at Onstage.

So here it is.  I was inspired by cards on Pinterest for this.  This is using the set ‘Paisleys and Posies’.


To create this. First cut a circle using the Layering Circle Framelits from scrap paper. The scrap paper is the same size as your Whisper White mat and you will cut it near the top of your paper. This is your mask piece.

Lay the scrap piece over your white card mat and stamp your images. On this card I have used Flirty Flamingo. Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron inkpads. Stamp your sentiment on the white card in Black.

I layered the card on to a Peekaboo Peach card base. Then finish with a diecut flower from the ‘Paisleys Thinlits’ and an adhesive pearl in the centre.

I hope you like the card anyway. At least I can share it with you.

We are having a fantastic time at Onstage. I so love catching up with my demonstrator friends.  I can’t wait to share the exciting new products coming very soon. So watch this space. 🙂

Now just before I sign off today too since we are talking about Onstage and swapping. I posted Live on my business Facebook page yesterday about the craziness of swapping. You might be able to catch that there still if you head to my page. The link is in the right hand side bar. My first attempt at Facebook Live but I hope to bring more to you soon. 🙂

I hope you have an awesome weekend.



cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


This past week I had a fun weekend with some of my stamping buddies.  These are great times just to sit and stamp and not be interrupted … and have a few laughs and eat too much!!!

I want to show you all my creative efforts for the weekend.  It still amazes me what you can put together with some ink and bits of card.  I plan to share details on the projects individually over the next couple of weeks so stay tuned for that.


It was a mix of Christmas cards and general cards.  I think the project I loved most was the Beach House and the card.  It took some time put I was pleased with the end result.  It has shown to be popular on my Facebook page and other group pages I am on too.  I will tell you about that one soon.

The great thing when you get together with others too is sharing stamp sets that you don’t have yourself.  It’s great to make cards using those sets.

Now what will I share with you first????

See you again soon.

I have some more of the fun from my Catalogue Launch for you.  If you missed out on the first part then head back to the last post I did.  Today I want to share with you some of the stamping fun we had.

The table all set up ready to go.  I was pretty excited with the Pom Pom Flowers I found that was a fairly close match to some of the new Incolors.


This was a sample of some of the new products and some cards.  I had other new products in the Product Playground that I showed in the last post.

sample table

I had some Swirly Bird card samples to share.  I have a class this coming Saturday just with the Swirly Bird stamps and the Scribbles Thinlits.  That should be a lot of fun.

Swirly Board

This was the first Make and Take using the new Flourish Thinlits.  I love the delicateness of these dies.  I found they cut surprisingly easy even with just the regular platform.  I used the new ‘Playful Palette’ DSP stack too.  The sentiment is from the new set ‘Best Birds’.

Flourish _ Peekaboo Peach

The other Make and Take was using the new Dapper Denim Incolor.  I have used the ‘Thoughful Banners’ stamp set. These banners are so easy to punch with the Duet Banner Punch.   I stamped a background on the base card with the Timeless Textures stamp set. The colours of the stripes were from the top – Night of Navy, Dapper Denim, Island Indigo, Marina Mist and Soft Sky.  I cut a scallop square mat for the white stamped card piece with the new Layering Square Framelits.  It just gives a subtle peek of the silver Foil. This card was inspired by a card I saw on a Facebook group I am on.

So lots of fun was had by all my lovely ladies who came.  I appreciate each and every one of them.  If you are local make sure you come along to my next launch or class to enjoy the fun.

A few posts ago I shared a card with the ‘Sitting Here’ stamp set in the new Dapper Denim Incolor.  You can see that post HERE if you missed it before. Today I have another card to share with this set that I made at the same time. This one is in another new Incolor Peekaboo Peach.

Peach sitting here

I have used the new paper stack ‘Playful Palette’.  After stamping the swing I coloured it with the blender pens and inkpads and then added some colour with the markers.  The cushion is stamped separately on scrap card and cut out, then adhered on to the swing.  I stamped the flower pot separately too and coloured it with the markers.  I added some of the gorgeous soft Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon.

What do you think?

This is a really sweet stamp set.  Here it is for you? The sentiments are really lovely.

I finally got to play with this set the other day.  I have had it since we received it at Onstage.  I CASED this card off a Facebook group I am on.


This is using a new set ‘Sitting Here’.  I coloured the images with blender pen and inkpads and touched it up with the markers.  The card base and oval mat is Crumb Cake. The embossing folder I used on the Dapper Denim card mat is the new one ‘Floral Affection’.  There is 2 in the set.  I love these Embossing Folders.

I think Dapper Denim is fast becoming a popular colour when I speak to people.  What do you think of the colour?

Here is the stamp set if you have not noticed it yet and the Embossing Folders.

These are available to order from my store now.  -> HERE.
