Another card with the Beautifully Happy Stamp Set.

Have I told you how much I love this set?? I love the sentiments and I love that it is a 2-step set which is great. What I don’t love is that it is only available for less than 2 weeks with Sale-A-Bration coming to an end. 😦

As a 2-step stamp set you can stamp the outline in the Memento Black and then use the “fill-in” images to stamp inside the outline. Of course you can colour it with the Stampin’ Blends or Pencils if you like to.

On this card when I stamped the Balmy Blue little ball flowers I didn’t like how it also coloured the leaf tips on some of the upper flowers so I coloured over them with the old Olive Marker and coloured the stem too. I coloured the centre of the flower with the Daffodil Delight Marker.

The sentiment is diecut with one from the Beautiful Shapes Dies. The background was diecut with the beautiful detailed background die from the Two Tone Flora Dies. They give such a soft, delicate touch.

This card was inspired by Sharon Burkett -> HERE.

Some simple stamping for you on this Sunday. And since I have been playing a lot with the Adventurous Journey Stamp Set I thought I would keep this one simple.

Just a 3 stamped boats on a card with a sentiment.

The sentiment is from the Waves of Inspiration Stamp Set and it was diecut with the Beautiful Shapes Dies. The red banner was just a strip of Real Red card and I snipped some banner ends with scissors. Then some Red Rhinestones to finish. You can have bling on Male cards right. 🙂

Have a great Sunday.

The Rings of Love Paper available for Sale-A-Bration is quite a surprise really. I have been playing a lot with it!

Sharing two cards with you today as we are running out of time!

Firstly with some scraps of paper I had left I put this card together. and just added a sentiment and embossed the Mint Macaron card mat with the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.

The sentiment is from the Go To Greetings stamp set.

Now to my second card.

With my class this week with the Adventurous Journey Stamp Set I have been having lots of fun creating with it. I thought this print from the Rings of Love paper looked like a watery background. I really liked the effect of it. And no mess with creating a watercolour piece!

The sentiment is from the Painted Poppies Stamp set stamped on a diecut circle from the Beautiful Shapes Dies.

This week Sale-A-Bration all comes to an end and you won’t be able to get this paper again. Don’t miss it … 😦

When I was playing with the Hippest Hippos stamps and dies a few weeks ago I thought the centre of the goggles looked liked the “old school” phones.

You know the ones many of us grew up with that had the cord hanging off and you couldn’t take your phone anywhere. Even having to talk to friends right in among the family …

Those were the days. Anyway I had to create these hippos with their phones.

I created a Half Fold Easel card for it. I had a lot of leftover bits too to put the card together. The sentiment is cut with one of the Beautiful Shapes Dies.

And just a note they are not outside right. How can you talk outside unless you have a long cord … (For some reason I put the plants on there but hey, they can be indoor plants). 🙂

This is it front on.

Side on so you can see the Easel part.

It folds flat easily to post out.

What do you think??

A Half Fold Easel Card is quite easy. Cut the right hand section off of the front of the card base. On the left hand section score it at half way. You can decorate as you like. Just have a piece on the left hand side at the bottom to help the easel part stand up.

Less than a week to get the Hippos and the dies for Sale-A-Bration. Have you got them yet? Don’t miss out on them.

Today’s card is a simple one but I particularly wanted to show you how to get the different colour flower head on the Wonderful World flower stamps.

If you take a look at the flower a little closer, You can see the different colours.

To get this effect firstly ink the stamp in Pear Pizzazz. Then with a tissue remove the ink off the flower head. Using a Sponge or Dauber apply ink to the flower head. I used Starry Sky here.

You can give it a little “huff” before stamping if you like. That will reactivate the Pear Pizzazz ink.

For the sentiment I used the Go To Greetings Stamp Set with the Beautiful Shapes Dies. I also used the Basic Borders Dies on the paper to get a scallop-y edge.

I have played a bit with this lovely paper and stamp set over the past week so I will share more.

The Wonderful World Stamps and Paper are a free bonus you can choose with your orders over $180 AUD during Sale-A-Bration.

I have been playing with the Let’s Set Sail stamps and punch recently. Today we had fun using these in class. I thought I would share with you one of the cards which was quite popular.

It’s a simple card really and just cutting off the front of the card at half way.

Let's Set Sail Half Fold card

This is the inside.

I am loving the circle diecut using the Beautiful Shapes Dies. Do you notice the squiggle embossed line around the edge? It gives your images a fun effect. It layers well with one of the Layering Circles Dies too.

I love that the Waves of the Ocean Designer Series Paper co-ordinates so well with the stamps and dies too.

The paper is running out very soon. Be sure to grab it.
