cards, Stampin' Up!


How cool are these large butterflies in the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp?? And I say Stamp (singular) as this is one big stamp.

Just a tip: It’s a good idea to use the Stamparatus for this big beauty. It’s great to be able to re-stamp if it doesn’t work well the first time. And it is so much easier to handle as it is quite large.

For this card I stamped the butterflies on white card using the Stamparatus and then coloured it with the Melon Mambo Stampin’ Blends. You can make your own background paper!

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and the dies are from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.

Check the embossing on the black sentiment mat. It has these little “hatched” lines that you can emboss in to your card. This is with one of the Dies in the Butterfly Wings Dies set. I added some Magenta Madness ribbon which still tones in well.

You can’t see on the black card mat behind the butterflies but I embossed the piece with the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder.

The Butterfly Brilliance is an early release bundle. They will continue on in the new upcoming catalogue.

The Papers that you can get with this release are only for a limited time so be sure to grab those VERY SOON. They are beautiful.

I had been playing with the Mountain Air Bundle recently. Before I move on to sharing projects with new products I thought I would share this card with you.  It’s a Card In A Box.  I love making these and I hadn’t made one in a while.

This bundle works so well with these style boxes.  You have lots of different images and can build up your scene.

To create the Card In A Box I have teamed it with the Country Club Designer Series Paper (retiring).

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (carrying over).

The template for making the Card In A Box can be found on Di’s blog -> HERE.

I’m glad to see that this will be carrying over in to the new catalogue.  It gives me some more time to play with it later.

You can grab it now in store though -> HERE.

I have started playing with new products so I’m excited to be sharing some new projects with you starting next week.  EEK! New Catalogue!!!! 🙂

Have a great weekend,


cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


I made this card sometime ago.  Just being able to share it with you now.

I wanted to show the Diecut pattern background and see how it looked.  I will say.  I’m not sure on this one BUT I’m putting it out here for you. 🙂

I have used the Poppy Moments dies.  The background was diecut on the Balmy Blue card and the leaves stamped over it.

The Piece was layered on to a piece of the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper for a subtle effect.

I diecut the poppy.  On the white piece I sponged some Flirty Flamingo ink on  the centre.

The sentiment was diecut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

I hope that this card gives you some inspiration.

The Poppy Moments Dies are carrying over in to the new catalogue.  Buy them now as a Bundle with the Peaceful Moments stamp set so you can save 10%.

See and order in my store >HERE.

For the next week I have a special gift with your orders.

Have a great weekend.

This week I am showcasing the Beautiful Moments stamp set.  Such a beautiful one with line art images ready for colouring.  I am not great at colouring but I am working on it.

Today’s card uses the sweet little girls.

The images were coloured with the Stampin’ Blends and cut with my new favourite dies the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. The paper is from the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper pack and seemed to fit the image so well.  Before adding the stamped piece on to the card and looped some Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon.

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  It was stamped on a strip of Mint Macaron card and then I cut the end on an angle adding some Sparkle Glimmer Paper behind it.

Watch out for more cards with this stamp set this week.

Happy Stamping,


cards, Catalogues, Classes, Onstage, Stampin' Up!


This card was one of the Make and Takes we had for Onstage in November.  I never made any of my cards that day – but then I usually don’t.  It’s the time to chat to people and I have to say it can get a little stressful when you have to make the cards in a short amount of time.  So I usually bring them home to make.

I only managed to complete the card this week.  I changed it up a little to what it was meant to be.  That’s ok. 🙂  The card is aimed for a beginner stamper.  One who is just starting out and doesn’t have a lot of products.  It’s basic stamping with little or no colouring or any diecutting.

I added a little more background stamping with the poppies and leaves using the Painted Poppies stamp set.  These were in poppy Parade.

On a piece of white card I stamped a poppy just off the top edge of the card and then added the Happy Birthday from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  I lightly sponged some Poppy Parade ink around the edge of the card.  I haven’t done that for a very long time.  I used to add it all the time but now I tend to leave the card clean – if I can describe it like that.

The strips of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper were adhered straight down on to the Poppy Parade card base and the white stamped piece was raised up with Dimensionals.  Before doing that I added a little piece of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.  Of course finish with bling.

Hope you like my version of the card.  There have been a few versions of this card from those who went to Onstage.

Happy Stamping,

On the weekend for my special Poppies class I made each person that came a little Thank You tag for coming.

They are just simple tags but you don’t need to do a lot with these poppies.

The top of the Whisper White tag is punched with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch with some Petal Pink Metallic Edge ribbon through the top.

After cutting the poppies,  the Petal Pink solid flower was sponged with a little Petal Pink ink and then the outline poppy in Poppy Parade was adhered over the top.  There was just a little strip of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper across the bottom.  The leaf cut in Granny Apple Green is actually the “leaf” or base for the small poppy bud but I think it works well as a little leaf.

The “splotch” stamp is from the Painted Poppies Stamp set and the Thank You from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  

Sweet tags in no time.

I showed you all about the gorgeous Poppies products in yesterday’s Sunday Suites.  Did you check them out?

You can head to my shop now -> HERE and see them.
