cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


What more do you need really when you make a card? Some pretty paper and a sentiment.

The paper from the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper with lots of fluttering dragonflies makes for a very quick card. I added some strips of the striped paper behind it for added contrast. Just use strips too. Don’t use a whole piece of the paper behind it as it is wasted.

I added some loops of the Midnight Muse Twine behind the sentiment with a small punched Bumblebee dragonfly.

The Dandy Garden paper is retiring and leaving VERY SOON. It is reduced too. 🙂

cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!, Sunday Suites


Back with Sunday Suites today looking at the cute Snail Mail Suite. Have you noticed this one yet?

The Snail Mail Suite Collection has such cute images in the stamp set and on the sweet paper and will create fun, whimsical projects. It’s great to keep up sending little cards in the mail and not just rely on electronic messaging. This suite certainly makes a great addition to add to those “snail mail” cards and letters we send. Who wouldn’t want to receive a card with the HAPPY MAIL on the envelope. 🙂

The Snail Mail Suite Collection includes:
– Snailed It Cling Stamp Set
– Snail Dies
– Snail Mail Designer Series Paper
– Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack
– Resin Hearts Embellishments

Check the Snailed It Bundle out. It has dies to cut the images but it there are other dies as well. The detailed mushrooms are just so cute. It also has the square “postage stamp” edge square which you can layer your images on but also what about the mini envelope die. What a fun addition!

The Snail Mail Designer Series Paper has some really cute images. The Colours found in the paper are Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight and Real Red

Below are some fun samples with this suite created by Stampin’ Up! artists. You can see the mini envelopes. So cute!

Another sample for you. The background on this is created with the little rounded square die shape in the Snail Dies set.

Happy Sunday Stamping,

Another card with you using the A Touch of Ink stamp set. This card is one we made at class a couple of weeks ago. It was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest. I didn’t save the actual card so I can’t remember the original creator. I changed it up a little.

Two Step A Touch of Ink

With the A Touch Of Ink stamp set I love that it is a 2-step stamp set. You can colour the line art images but you have the great option of using the solid image stamps to “fill” the images.

For this card stamp the leaves on white card with Just Jade and use the Soft Sea Foam to colour the leaves with the solid leaf stamp. I ran the white card through the Subtles Embossing Folder and wrapped around some White Baker’s Twine.

For the hummingbird, stamp in Memento Black. To colour it I inked up the solid stamp with Flirty Flamingo. Before stamping I used the Daubers or you can use a sponge to lightly add ink on the edges. On the top I inked with Poppy Parade. Along the bottom edge of the bird I inked with Pumpkin Pie. Then stamp on to the white diecut circle. If you find the Flirty Flamingo too dark then before inking the edges lightly stamp off the bird on to scrap paper.

The sentiment on this is heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder and diecut with the Messages Die.

I don’t want you missing out on this gorgeous A Touch of Ink stamp set. It’s only available for one more month. This is a Level 2 Sale-A-Bration choice. When you order over $180 you can choose this set.

As an added bonus this week I have a little special.

When you order over $180 you can choose the A Touch Of Ink stamp set (or you can choose any other of the products too). As a Thanks to you I will send out to you 2 card kits that you can create your own cards with as well as a sample of the lovely Oh So Ombre paper.

If you are in Austalia I would love to help you with your orders. You can contact me directly on 0439 844574 or head to my store -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: CJ7PPUEC

Blog Hops, cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!, Tutorials


Welcome to today’s Blog Hop with some of the ESAD Demonstrators. We are focusing on the new January – June Mini Catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration. Woo Hoo! Who is excited! I can’t wait to start sharing with these amazing products.

You might have come from Odette’s blog -> HERE or just starting with me. That’s ok. Join in and hop around.

Just first off – What is ESAD??

For my project today I couldn’t resist the Darling Donkeys stamp set. How cute is it??? This is a free choice for Sale-A-Bration this year.

The card is a Pull Tab Flap Fold. It’s really quite easy – and fun! I think I need to make more of these type of cards.

Firstly the front of the card with the cute donkey.

Pull the tab and it opens to another sweet donkey.

Inside the card I added some white card to write on – and another donkey.

All the donkeys were stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.

The Designer Series Paper panel on the front is from the Flower and Field pack also a free choice for Sale-A-Bration.

Want to make one of these cards yourself?

I will add the measurements just below in Metric and Imperial. Rather than recreating a video of putting the card together you can check out Lisa’s video here. She explains it so well. View it -> HERE.

3D projects, Catalogues, Onstage, Stampin' Up!


Last weekend was the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event @ Home. It was sad not to meet together but a few from my team got together which was a lot of fun.

It was lovely of Sarah to open her home up to us and we could watch the big TV screen together with all the sessions and chat about them. There is always lots of ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’. 🙂

We had a card display and I made up some gifts for my team.

Here are the little gifts. I included a Stampin’ Up! file folder with some Stampin’ Up! hand-outs, a clipboard (great for all those sessions notes), and I made up a little pack with a highlighter, sticky notes and a Stampin’ Up! magnet. These were all gifted in past Stampin’ Up! convention bags.

These were little table gifts for the tables. I made them up using some retired pillow boxes and decorated them with the new Dandy Garden suite. These are some gorgeous new products coming in the 2021 Occasions Catalogue starting in January. I thought this sentiment was good as we start out on a new Stampin’ Up! year.

Of course one needs to be hydrated at these events so I made up some bottle tags using the cute Zany Zebras.

Just some of the name tags. Sarah created these which were great!

And then you must have Prize Patrol right. We had drawings over the 2 days for some fun prizes. And that was in addition to the Stampin’ Up! giveaways over the weekend.

Some card displays with the Curvy Celebrations and the Curvy Christmas stamp set, the Dove of Hope and a few other stamp sets.

The Dandy Garden Suite. I will share closer views of the cards over the next couple of weeks and months. I think you will love this suite.

The Poinsettia Petals card samples created by Sarah.

Getting some creating going on with the Dandy Garden project. I will share those with you very soon.

Some of my JEN’s INK Team. (A socially distanced photo. 🙂 )
