cards, Classes, Stampin' Up!


It was my last class for the year today.  That is a bit sad but it gets to a crazy time of year with end of school activities and preparations for Christmas.

Before the class today I took a video of what is happening in my classroom and shared it on my Facebook Business page.  I thought I would share it with you.

Thanks for joining this stamping journey with me and for your visits to my blog.

I am excited to continue to share stamping with you all in 2017.

cards, Punch Art, Stampin' Up!


I found this idea on Pinterest some time ago by a Demonstrator friend Delys.  It’s a cute angel using the Festive Flower Builder Punch.  How clever!!! It’s always good to find different ways of using the Stampin’ Up! products.  I made the angel up some time ago but only recently added it to a card.


I will show you a link to Delys’ blog shortly so you can make your own but I will just give you some details on the card.

It took me some time to make the card as I was wondering how to make it without the rest of the card taking the attention away from the angel.  So I simply layered it on a white oval and matted that on a Gold Foil Oval. This was adhered to a Thick Whisper White card base which I had adhered some of the gorgeous Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack.  I had wrapped around some Gold Cording Trim and added the greeting from the Christmas Greeting Thinlets Dies cut from Gold Foil Sheets.  What do you think????

So do you want to make your own??  Here is the link to Delys’ blog that shows the pieces you need.  Go and check it out.

Thanks for visiting.  Have an happy day,

Jenny 🙂

cards, Stampin' Up!


Have you checked out the Holiday Catalogue yet??? What is on your wish list??  There are so many great products it is hard to choose.  I have the link in the right side bar for you to check out if you haven’t already. I was playing with some of the new things they other day I made up this set of cards to show you.  They are using the new ‘Christmas Greetings’ Thinlets.  I have a little trick I wanted to tell you about.


I will show you each card close up so you can see them better.  The layouts were inspired by some cards I had seen on Pinterest.

I cut a circle from Cherry Cobbler card and then embossed it with the Woodland Embossing Folder. There is some lovely Vellum sheets in the Holiday Catalogue but I don’t have them as yet so I have used the Gold Fancy Foil Vellum from the Annual Catalogue.  I adhered some Whisper White card on to the back of the vellum. Don’t you just love the cute Reindeer clips??? I tied some Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine onto them.  I cut the words from the ‘Christmas Greetings’ Thinlets (p34) from Gold Foil Sheets.




TIP: In this set of Thinlets there are 3 words “peace”, “merry” and “jolly”.  Now I didn’t want jolly for this so when I cut the word I then carefully snipped off the “ll’s”.  If you cut it off near to the “l” letters then you have a little tail.  I adhered the tail of the “y” over the “o” tail.  Does that make sense?  Using the new Fine Tip Glue Pen (p 43) it makes it easy to adhere the letters together and  also adhere the letters to the circle.  You only need a very little bit let me tell you.  I found that you needed to just hold the piece down for a minute to take hold.

Hope you like these cards.  I’m loving playing with this new stuff.  Go check the catalogue out if you haven’t already done so.

Have an awesome day 🙂



cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


I received my preorder for some new goodies from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue.  Oh! It was just like Christmas – literally!! Opening up all the fun new products and the sparkly papers.  It was all so festive.  I had to open all the packets straight away and punch and cut and emboss.  One of the first things I used was the new Festive Flower Builder Punch. I can’t show you the punch yet (just wait until September 1st).  I made up the flower and today just added it to a card.  Here you are….


I have used Real Red for the card base.  The flower is Real Red and Old Olive.  You will find a few new products on this card.  Apart from the fun Builder Punch you have a co-ordinating stamp set which the greeting is from – ‘Reason For The Season’ (Don’t you love that font!), and the gorgeous new Embossing Folder ‘Boughs and Berries’.

So now you really want to see the Catalogue don’t you?? If you would like me to send you a catalogue, then just leave me a comment or email me and I will send one to you. Australian residents only.  I am going to start mailing them next week.

Thanks for stopping by,


3D projects, cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!


I showed you my Convention swaps earlier.  I hope you like them?? When I was just finishing the cards off last week I realised how similar one of the cards were to a Gift Box I made recently and what a great gift set it would make.  What a coincidence!

Here they are together. I have used the Guy Greetings stamp set.


I did not plan this at all but how cool! If you want to see more details of this cute faceted box then you can check my blog post HERE.  It has the link to make your own box in that post too.

Maybe that will be just the idea to fill with chocolates for a masculine birthday – or maybe for Father’s Day????

Thanks for stopping by,




Yesterday was my niece’s 21st Birthday.  I can now show you her card since it is safely delivered. The pressure was on to do something different – and spectacular.  I came across this Pop Out Swing card by Julie Davison.  You can see that card HERE and the instructions are there too for you to make your own.

Here is my card using ‘Celebrate Today’ and the Balloon framelits.


It took a little bit until I was happy enough with the swing and I think it is a card that you personally give to someone to show them how it works rather than sending it them in the mail.

Here is the front of the card.  The greeting was cut using the ‘Project Life – Cards and Labels’ die. A little glimmer always goes down well on a card too. 🙂  I cut the square from the centre of the front of the card using the Squares Framelits.


You can’t tell by the photo but I heat embossed the 21st with silver embossing powder.  It gave it a nice shine. The 21st is from the set ‘Memorable Moments’ (soon to be retiring – have you got that set yet???).

I think it was well-received.  Happy 21st Megan. x

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend,


Stampin' Up!

I can show you this card now.  I made this last week for one of my customers who are going through a hard time at the moment.  I just wanted to let her know I was thinking of her.



The layout was inspired by a card on Pinterest.  I used the Free Sale-A-Bration set ‘Lotus Blossom’ that you have probably seen everywhere on the internet.  This is a 3 step stamp set. I have used Lost Lagoon for the first 2 stamps in the set and then Pool Party for the 3rd stamp. The stem and greeting are stamped in Baked Brown Sugar.The greeting is from the ‘Wetlands’ set.  I then cut the piece with one of the Oval Framelits. A sheet from the Moonlight paper stack was cut with the Hexagon Hive Framelit.  The card base is Lost Lagoon.  When it was assembled I thought it lacked something even after adding a White Baker’s Twine bow.  I flagged the end of a little of the Burlap ribbon and tucked it under the oval.  That just seemed to “pop” the card then.

I think she might have liked it.  🙂
