I have my classes on this weekend using the Nature’s Poem Suite. This has become a popular bundle for many people. I wasn’t sure about it at first but I have recently got them so I thought I would share a few cards with you that I have made.
I have shared a few cards with this bundle before. If you want to check on those be sure to click on the tag for “nature’s poem”. Here is one post -> HERE to get you started on though.
Here are a couple more cards.
For this first one I stamped some of the leaves over white card to create a background. I added a short length of the Burlap ribbon behind the oval sentiment and then added one of the diecut leaves stamped in Early Espresso. I am really not sure of this though. I think it is too heavy. What do you think?
For this one below I was trying a few different things. I liked the words separated. I really like this sentiment. I know a few people who I could use this saying for. If you notice the white background there are some embossed leaves on it. In the Nature’s Roots Framelits set there are some leaves that don’t cut but emboss your card. That’s pretty cool.
The rest of the card is fairly simple with a strip of the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper, Grapefruit Grove twine and the tree stamped in Early Espresso and die cut out.
I hope you like them.
Thanks again for visiting me. I love that you stop on by. Please visit again. 🙂

I shared a funky card yesterday with you using the Peaceful Reflection set. Today I have another similar one. This one is actually the first one I made of the 2.
I used similar colours of Rich Razzleberry, Flirty Flamingo and Lemon Lime Twist. This one is matted on Rich Razzleberry and with a Thick Whisper White card base. It tones it down a little. 🙂 The sentiment is from Colorful Seasons. It is kind of fitting for this type of card don’t you think??
Have a great weekend. I hope I can get some creating happening this weekend. I haven’t done any all week and I am suffering withdrawals. Other things have been going on. 🙂 Hope you can get creative too.
By the way, speaking of creating. Have you joined my Facebook group yet? I share some projects and tips AND Sunday is ‘Share A Card Sunday’ where everyone gets to share their projects. Head over -> HERE to join the creative fun.
Today I have had my Stamparatus class showing lots of fun ways to use this great new tool. I posted the projects we were making a couple of posts back but I thought I would show you more detail of one of the projects. I don’t often share the details of class projects but today I want to share it would you my lovely blog readers.
The Stamparatus is a great positioning tool for your stamping but it can do so many other fun techniques. I think my favourite is stamping in a circle. I created these 2 projects with them. The first one is the one we made in class and everyone loved it. I think this might have just sold them on it. 🙂
This one is using the Accented Blooms set. The tiny flower creates a lovely flower wreath. These were coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. The White mat was embossed with the new Tufted Embossing Folder.
I was playing around with a few other ideas. This leaf is from the Colorful Seasons set. Wouldn’t this be a lovely idea for a Christmas card?? (filing away that idea so watch this space). 🙂
This is a mini card measuring 10cm x 10cm (4″x4″). The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Sentiments.
So how you do this?? There are lots of great tutorials online. Rather than me repeat it why not head to Allison’s Blog -> HERE and see the video.
Have fun with it. If you haven’t got one yet, you might just have to get one. 😉
You have heard about the Stamparatus but not sure really what it is about? If you are a Wollongong local then come and see and play with it at this week’s class. You will be amazed!
These are the cards you will make along with seeing some other fun ways to use it.

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. 🙂
Thanks for visiting,
