cards, Catalogues, Classes, Stampin' Up!


Since I am sharing cards with the Wishing You Well set lately I thought I should show you this one.  This card was one of the cards we made at my Holiday Catalogue Launch a few weeks ago.  Everyone liked making this card even though it is fairly simple.  We made this on the weekend at a private class too.  They all liked it there also. 🙂  (BTW: If you can’t make a class you can book a Private class with me with a couple of friends. They are always a fun time).

The layout is based on the Freshly Made Sketches #352 – you can see that here. 

There was the option to stamp the bow on scrap white paper and cut it out (no Framelits or punch for that sorry!).  This was raised up with Dimensionals and that looked good too. The strip of paper is from the Country Lane Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment stamped on Crushed Curry was cut with the Bunch of Banners Framelits and we trimmed off one of the ends of the banner. We added a few loops of Silver Thread behind it.  To add some colour to the white space the “dots” from Timeless Textures was stamped in several places in Mint Macaron.

I made another similar card to this in Christmas colours.  Check that out in tomorrow’s post.

Thanks for stopping by today,


cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


I have been sharing cards with you with the Accented Blooms set.  I had a Craft Show over the weekend and I focused on this set for the Make and Take there. When I was thinking of using this set for the show it needed to be a simple card that didn’t require colouring with it as there was no time for that in the small minute that you have with people.  I came across a card by Amanda Bates with some simple stamping in Basic Gray and a POP of the Lemon Lime Twist.  So I CASED her card for it.  (Thanks Amanda 🙂 )  You can see her card -> HERE.

This is the card that everyone made.  I have to say that Kids and adults loved making this card.

It’s just a mini card 10cm x 10cm. (4″x4″).  Stamping in Basic Gray gives a little more softness to it than using a heavy black.  I liked the  Lemon Lime Twist POP.  Everyone added a Rhinestone to their card for a little bling rather than the Glitter Gems that I have added on this one.

I have another card with this set that I will share with you shortly that doesn’t require colouring.  Check in soon for that.


cards, Catalogues, Classes, Stampin' Up!


This past weekend I was at a Craft Show with my Stamping buddy Leonie.  I love meeting people and sharing stamping with them.  It is lots of fun to share in their excitement and joy when they discover new things.

I thought I would show you the make and take we did at our stand.  We focused on the Daisy Delight Bundle. I am so glad that is available again.

This card was CASED from Julie Davison on Julie’s Stamping Spot. I couldn’t locate this exact card on her blog. I originally found it on Pinterest and it didn’t link back to the exact post.

The card is a very simple one but I think effective and uses the Daisy Delight Stamp set, the Daisy Punch and the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  You can find all of them on Page 127 of the Annual Catalogue.  I changed the sentiment to Happy Birthday which is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set for the make and take.

This is the Bundle if you can’t get to see it in the Catalogue.

Now it’s back make sure you grab it in my store -> HERE now.

I have lots of cards using this bundle that I will share with you this week so be sure to check in.

See you tomorrow,

Yesterday I shared some of the displays at my Launch I held on Saturday.  I thought I would show you the card we did as a Make and Take today.  I CASED this card from Pinterest. This is using the Stamp Set ‘Kinda Eclectic’. You can see what is in this stamp set below. I think this will become a favourite in the catalogue.  This is using some of the new In Colors: Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey, with Very Vanilla.  The great thing too with this set is that the butterflies fit the Elegant and Bitty Butterfly punches.  I like the little touch of Gold Twine on the card too.



So go and check out the Catalogue now if you haven’t already done so or let me know and I will get one to you.
Have a Happy Day 🙂


Last weekend I had my Catalogue Launch and big sale day.  It was a huge day.  We had a few challenges along the way but we got there.  As usual I was so busy and forgot to take photos of the fun But I think I can say we all had fun!!! 🙂

We had a play with some of the new products and everyone got to make a card to go home with.  Here is the card that everyone made.  I CASED this card from one I saw on Pinterest.  The original creator was Jill from Jill’s Ink.

This is using some of the new In Colors: Raspberry Ripple and Summer Starfruit.  I have also used Pool Party for the card strip down the card and the stamping.  We used the new set Memorable Moments – a very versatile set.  One advantage of being in clear mount is the numbers could be mounted together down a clear block and stamped in one go.  Just a tip though, stamp it on scrap paper first to check that they are fairly straight and facing the correct way.  Don’t ask how I know??  I cut a larger Framelit Label and embossed it with the Stripes Embossing Folder.  The stamped blossom on the Framelit Label is from Betsy’s Blossom. We did a couple of other colour variations using the other In Colors.  We kept the Pool Party and the Summer Starfruit to co-ordinate with it.   Here is the version in Island Indigo which was popular on the day.  Don’t look too closely.  I was a bit out with the blossom in the middle of this Framelit.  It is a good idea to stamp the blossom first then line up the Framelit around it.

I made up some Thank You bags that had a few little goodies in too.  I kept it very simple as it was the day before when I did these.

Here is a close-up of the tag so you can see.  I have used the DSP from ‘Story Time’ and punched a flower out with the Blossom Punch.  The ‘Thank U’ is from Pennant Parade stamped in Rose Red and layered on a Rose Red Circle.  It was very quick and easy.

Stay tuned for some more projects I have been making with some new Catalogue goodies.

Thanks for stopping by.  Until next time,


cards, Stampin' Up!, Uncategorized


I created this card as the Make and Take for a workshop a couple of weeks ago. (Thanks again Deb).  I am only just getting around to showing you now!

This card was inspired by a card our team leader Ness had created.  I used the ‘Elements of Style’ swirl stamped in Lucky Limeade.  The greeting is from ‘Fabulous Phrases’.  I don’t know if there is a particular name for this technique.  I cut strips of the patterned paper from the Everyday Enchantment DSP, (love that paper!) and adhered these to a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock.  When they dried I cut them out using the Butterfly Bigz die and then embossed it using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  It just gives it a little more texture Embossing it.  After sponging the edges in Soft Suede, adding some organza ribbon and pearls (I did add 3 pearls to this later.  It is better balanced that way!!),   I then adhered the butterfly to the Very Vanila card.  I punched the edge with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and adhered this to a Calypso Coral card base.

While creating this one I made another one.

The butterfly was created the same way but using the largest Die.   I wanted to create this one vintage style.  On the vanilla card I stamped the flower image from ‘Elements of Style’ and then spritzed the card with Crumb Cake marker. Then I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink.  The dots are from ‘Create A Cupcake’.  I curled the top right corner over several times, distressing it so the card separated in 2.  This adds just a big more distressing.  The greeting is from ‘Fabulous Phrases’ and stamped in Lucky Limeade.

The Vanilla Card was adhered to a Soft Suede mat  and then Lucky Limeade base.  I added a bow from organza ribbon as well as a Lucky Limeade Brad to the butterfly and adhered it to the card front.

Thanks for looking,

Have a good week,
