Back with some more on my Catalogue Launch last weekend.

Firstly, I made everyone an In Color Bookmark. I forgot to take a photo of them all although I did do a Reel of them in Instagram last week. See it -> here.

I have a photo of one of them I had left. This one in Starry Sky. I had all different colours.

I used the Rainbow Dies for the curvy edge on the bottom. The card strips were embossed with the Fern 3D Embossing Folder.

Here is the second card. This one with the Happiness Abounds Bundle.

I love the effect of the Die background.

This card was inspired by Shelly Godby -> HERE.

Happy Stamping,

I held my Catalogue Launch over the weekend in 2 sessions. Lots of fun had by all I think. It was good to all get together again.

Before we started I filmed a video. I have it below so you can see it all ready to go.

One of the projects we made was using the Sending Smiles Bundle. Lots of bright, fun colours with this card.

Don’t you like the Parakeet Party and the Tahitian Tide together? Some people did the Parakeet Party with Orchid Oasis. That looked great too.

The card was inspired by one I saw -> HERE.

Have you checked out the catalogue yet?

In Australia? It can all be viewed online -> HERE.

Have a great day,

If you follow me along on Facebook you might have seen a discussion over this card.

I wasn’t happy with it. I thought it was the vellum. I had lots of great suggestions and have now updated the card.

I removed the vellum piece. That really wasn’t working right. I tried a diecut circle or shape but the white circle there was the largest I had. In the end I lengthened the ribbon and kept it simple.

I have used the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper and the Bottled Happiness Stamp Set. The sentiment is from Inspired Thoughts.

I thought I would share it with because even when we have been creating cards for some time and we are so-called “professionals” (kind of), we still have challenges. I haven’t even shown you many of the cards that haven’t made it out in to the world. So don’t be discouraged if sometimes your cards don’t come up the way you would like. Just keep creating and …if you are unsure always ask. People love to share their ideas.

Keep on creating,

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.

In Australia? You can stop by my store -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: 4SEB3FCV. Or you can contact me directly.

Have a great weekend,

Wednesday’s WOW! #135 – Use the Negative Wave Diecut. Don’t waste the gorgeous Foil when you diecut a detailed wave from the Waves Dies. Use it for another project.

I shared a card recently with the diecut wave. When I finished I saw the negative piece on some paper. It looked cool. So I added it to a card.

And also I used some of the Silver Foil to diecut a swirly edge that you would use to line the clouds. That makes a cool wave under the post. I took off the pelican but I’m thinking I need to add it at the bottom.

The Waves of Inspiration Designer Series Paper is just gorgeous. I hope you have grabbed some of that already.

You can see all the beautiful Waves of the Ocean Collection products in my store -> HERE including the gorgeous paper and the Waves Dies.

I shared this card briefly in a recent video of 5 Ways with the Waves of Inspiration. (You can check that video -> HERE if you missed it. And really there were more than 5 Ways…)

I wanted to create a separate video on this card to show how I did the background but particularly the moon effect. You will be surprised.

Here is the card.

You can check out the video below.

(If you receive this blog update by email the video may not show so head to the blog post directly to view it).

There is not much time left to grab the Waves of the Ocean Designer Series Paper so be sure you don’t miss out on it.
