cards, Catalogues, Classes, Stampin' Up!


Wednesday’s WOW! #121. Sharing a tip for you on masking your sentiment area. This creates an “edge” for your surrounding stamping and creates a white space for your sentiment that helps it stand out without even raising it on a separate punch or diecut. It creates such a cool effect.

We created this card in my Retiring Class last week. I love the Beautiful Friendship stamp set and I’m so sad it is leaving. This card is not my original idea. I saw it on Pinterest by Nancy Ferb.

I have used the Mango Melody for the card base and Terracotta Tile for the card mat.

You create the mask for your sentiment area by adding a Sticky Note on the white card. I have shown it below. You can place it anywhere you like. Then stamp around the Sticky Note. When you are done remove it and then you have a “block” area to add the sentiment.

Sadly this stamp set is no longer available. ūüė¶ They go quick when they are retiring.

Don’t miss out on any other of the Retiring Items. Only 2 weeks left. Check it out -> HERE.

Check out the Clearance Rack too for some huge discounted items. See it -> HERE.

With your orders I’m sending out some of my Hand-made cards. I have lots to give away. That’s in addition to the other little gifts I send out.

Happy Stamping,

There are lots of things happening to share with you at the moment with specials and extra bits.¬† You really want to see inspiration though don’t you?? ūüôā¬† I have a quick card to share with you today.¬† This card was one of the cards we made at last week’s Christmas Stamp A Stack.¬† Everyone loved the richness of it.¬† There was a lot of cutting and embossing to it but once that was done the card came together quickly.¬† Especially when they had 3 of these to make!

The card base is Cherry Cobbler with the card mat embossed with the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder.  There was a bit of punching with the Sprig Punch in Old Olive and Shaded Spruce.  The only stamping was the sentiment which is from the Wishing You Well set.  Of course, the beautiful leaping deer from the Detailed Deer Thinlits. 

This card was inspired by one by Jo Anne -> HERE. 

Thanks for visiting me.  Have a great day,

I started making this sign before Christmas at a team meeting and as usual hadn’t finished it. I put it aside and actually forgot about it.¬† When I was clearing up things the other week I found it and thought it must get finished.¬† So yesterday, although it was Mother’s Day here I did get some time to indulge in a little creating for me and got about doing it.

I thought you might like to see it.  Nothing fancy but I thought it would  be nice to hang in my studio to welcome all the lovely stampers that come along to classes.

This is using the Eclipse technique with the Large Letters Framelits and the Touches of Texture.

This is the length of an A4 sheet of white but I have cut the width to about 15cm (6″) I think.¬† I backed the Whisper White card on some thick card from the Foil Sheets packaging we get and then backed that on some Silver Foil.

I think I will add some sparkle with the Wink of Stella pen??

I have classes several times per month in the Wollongong area so come along, and bonus – you can see this in real life and get to have some creative fun with all my other lovely stampers. ūüôā

Thanks for visiting,
