Catalogues, Classes, Stampin' Up!


It’s come to that time when we start saying Good-Bye to our favourites. The Retiring List is now out. It’s your Last Chance to get them.

I have all the details below. I know I’m sad to be saying Good-Bye to some. But it makes space for other great products to come.

**Firstly,  when you check the list don’t be alarmed at the size of it.  Some items are being reconfigured such as the stamp set cases.  New sets will now come with a printed image on the outside as well as the inside back cover and the stamp sets won’t have images on the clear sheets the stamps are stuck to. 

** Some bundles as in stamps/dies or stamps/punches are listed as retiring but only as a bundle. They may still be available individually in the next catalogue but buying them now as a bundle saves 10%.

See them all in my Store to see all the items shown -> HERE.

These items are all WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. So be quick! Some have sold out already.

Another card for you today that I haven’t shared using the Blossoms in Bloom Bundle.

The flowers were stamped in Balmy Blue. The smaller flowers in Blushing Bride and the leaves in Pear Pizzazz. JUST A TIP: To line up the flowers to see where to stamp I layered over the black thin diecut piece and outlined it in pencil. That helped than randomly stamping.

The larger outline die was diecut in Misty Moonlight card.

Thanks for visiting me today.

Recently I shared a card with a video using the gorgeous, colourful Rainbow Glimmer Paper.  I used the Many Layered Blossoms dies.  You can see that blog post -> HERE.

I created a similar card using the Butterfly Beauty Dies. I thought I would show you this one and compare it.  See what you think.

I used the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder for the background.

So here are the 2 together.  Which one do you prefer – Butterflies or Blossoms??

It was my gorgeous girl’s 20th Birthday yesterday.  I don’t know where that time has gone! I thought I would share the card I created for her.

It was a very quick card and very simple but what more do you need with the cute Playful Pets Designer Series Paper.  Those little doggies just make you smile don’t they?? She just LOVES dogs.  So I thought she would love all these little doggies – and she did!  To be honest I actually bought this paper for her as I know she will love creating with it.

The sentiment is from the Many Mates stamp set and coloured with the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. The sentiment was cut with one of the dies in the Tasteful Labels Dies set.  Underneath that I diecut a little banner strip with another die in the set.  The banner was with a little piece of the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper.   It is a little hard to tell but I added some loops of the retired Silver Thread under the sentiment.

If you are a cat lover there is very cute cat prints too in the pack.  Just so much cuteness in one pack.

Hope you have a great week.  Get some creating time in for you this week.  We all need that little escape.

cards, Catalogues, Challenges, Stampin' Up!


Occasionally in my Customer Facebook group I set a little challenge.  It’s a BUILD A CARD WEEK.  Each day of the week I give an element to a card I have designed.  At the end of the week they can create their card.  This card I am sharing with you today is the card I made for the recent BUILD A CARD WEEK I had.

I have used the Whale Done Stamp set. This was a fun card to make.

Each day I gave the measurements for the pieces and suggestions of what it would have.  It is lots of fun to get people creating.  Sometimes we get a bit “stuck” in creating trying to think of what to use or what the layout is to be.  Having direction or inspiration can help.

This past week for our Build A Card Week not as many got involved as in the past.  Life happens but past ones have had lots of involvement. But it’s interesting to see what cards people come up with using the same elements.

You can join in the fun on my Facebook group too.  Head -> HERE to join.

I created this card for my sister’s 50th Birthday this weekend.  It would be an understatement to say she loves cats!! I knew this paper would be fitting for her.

This is a Z Fold card.  I will tell you about how you can make the card further below.  Let’s look at it though.

I have used the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper.  I didn’t have the Pampered Sets stamp set but that’s ok.  The sentiment is from the Seaside Notions stamp set.  The heart is from the Whale Done stamp set.  I cut the cats for the front of the card from a piece of the Designer Series Paper and raised them up off the card with Dimensionals. 

This view below shows the card almost folded.

I have made these Z Fold cards before.  They are fun to make.

You can find the original post for these type of cards which has the instructions -> HERE.

On that link you will find the metric measurements.  There is a link there to go to the Imperial measurements.

I made a smaller version of the Z Fold cards too way back then.  You can see that post -> HERE if you want a narrower version.

You can find all the cute Playful Pets Suite products including the paper in my store now -> HERE.  Check it out.

Today for Sunday Suites I have a GORGEOUS suite – and will say that it is fast becoming a favourite for many.  It is the Prized Peony Suite.

Let’s see all that gorgeousness that’s in this suite.

The Peony Garden Suite Collection for $170.50 AUD includes –
* Prized Peony Cling Stamp Set (10% off)
* Peony Garden Designer Series Paper
* Square Vellum Doilies
* Elegant Faceted Gems
* Gray Granite 1/4″ (6.4 mm) Shimmer Ribbon
* Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder
* Peony Dies (10% off)

Here is a little closer look at the Prized Peony Bundle ($100.75 AUD) The stamp set has beautiful sentiments.  You can stamp and colour the flowers or use the dies to build up a Peony flower.

We have the Peony Dies.  There are some that diecut the flower images from the stamp set and some that cut and build the peony flower.  Check the sample further below.  There is a way of building the flowers up using the dies.  Play around with them and have fun creating your flowers.

Below is the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper.  The colours in the paper include: Basic Gray, Gray Granite, Petal Pink, Whisper White.  Some of the prints are black and white so you can colour the images if you like.

The Square Vellum Doilies below create some gorgeous softness to your projects.  There is a sample below to show you.

The Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder adds a lovely texture to your projects.

Check these projects out.

You can see how the pretty Peony turns out when you diecut it and layer the pieces together.

Lots of beautiful projects.  I can’t take credit for any of them.  They have been created by amazing Stampin’ Up! artists.

This card is a close-up from above.  You can see the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder embossed on Vellum.  This also uses a Square Vellum Doily.  How gorgeous!

What about this flower below?? This has been so beautifully coloured.

cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!, swaps


The last 2 posts I have shared swaps that I received from a Card Swap I joined in on with the 2020 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue. If you missed them do pop back and see them in the last posts.

Today I thought I would share more details on the cards I created for the swaps.

This card was for the Round 1 Swap Group. I have used the set Comfort and Hope.

I picked the colours for this card from some of the Designer Series Paper from last year I think.  Now I can’t remember which pack.  The colours are Mint Macaron, Blackberry Bliss and Mango Melody.  I wouldn’t have thought to put these colours together.

The Stitched circle with the swirly circles needed something underneath and I didn’t have any Blackberry Bliss Ribbon so I diecut 2 little banners from the Tasteful Labels Dies set and added them underneath.  It just adds another element.

I love sending cards in the mail “Just Because” so I really like this Paper Hug sentiment.

My swap card for Round 2 Group  I used the Tasteful Touches Bundle.

The colours used were Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron. When I was assembling the card I thought it was missed something so I added a vellum scallop circle using the die in the Tasteful Labels Dies set. It helps “ground” the flower. I used one of the other dies in the set to diecut the white  card with the flower stamped on it.

The Mint Macaron card was embossed with the Greenery Embossing Folder.  I added a little Linen Thread bow to finish it off.

I love joining in swaps and seeing all the amazing creations that I receive. It’s great getting the new ideas.

Have a great week. I hope it’s a creative one for you.


PS. Don’t forget Bonus Days are on this month.
