cards, Stampin' Up!


Playing with the Artistically Inked stamps and dies recently. I thought it would be fun to create a card with the 2021 Incolors and the “splotch” stamp. Well that’s what I am calling it anyway.

Just a tip when you want to stamp this – Stamp the top one and the bottom one first. Just have them off the edge a little. Then you can fill the centre section with the other 3 colours. It is a little easier to evenly space them.

I have made a few cards with this gorgeous bundle and I will share more with you soon.

Happy Stamping,

cards, Catalogues


Today I have a card for you with the pretty Fresh Freesia colour, the gorgeous Color and Contour stamps and dies and the soft gingham from the Pretty Pansies paper. Don’t forget the softness in the Fresh Freesia ribbon too. What a mix!

On the full piece of Fresh Freesia card cut vertically and score halfway. Using the scallop edge die in the Scallop Contours Dies cut the edge part way up the card front for a flap.

The white card has 3 flower stamped on the front with the outline image and the centre. Then 2 were stamped on scrap white card and then diecut and raised up off the card.

This is inside with a couple of outline flowers stamped. On the bottom edge adhere the piece of gingham Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper with some Fresh Freesia ribbon wrapped around.

Any of these – and more – can be ordered in my store. (Australian residents only).

Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


Wednesday’s WOW! #123 is a fun one this week. What’s your Incolor?? Now I don’t mean what is your favourite. I mean what is your personality colour. This could be interesting.

I’m sure you have met all the new Incolors by now. I have to say I’m still not sure what my favourite is. It keeps changing. They are all so lovely.

Did you know that there is a personality behind each colour?? Why not take a quick test and see what colour you come up to be. I will share mine.


I would love to hear what your colour is. Drop me a comment and tell me.

My personality colour is…

PALE PAPAYA. It was 58%. Not too high but it is a close description I think.

I’m not so much outgoing and let loose, but anyway…it’s close.

Why not try it yourself and let me know,

Have a great day,

You have probably seen the new, lovely 2021-2023 Incolors right?

How pretty are they? What is your favourite?

I recently made a set of cards with these colours using the new Etched in Nature stamp set. I used a different image in the set for each card.

They are simple cards. I used the Basic Borders Dies to create a fancy edge. The black with the heat embossed sentiment creates a little ‘POP’. These sentiments are diecut with the Messages Die. Such a useful die for any of your small sentiments.

The Etched in Nature stamp set has been withdrawn for the moment. There were some issues with it to have a crisp stamped image. It will be back soon though once these have been addressed. I’m so glad that Stampin’ Up! stands by the quality of their products.

Have you checked all the new products out now in the catalogue?
