3D projects, cards, Christmas, swaps


I thought I would show you the swaps I received from last week’s team meeting.  There are some really cute ones here.  I think Tags were very common 🙂  They are great to use as tags or add them to cards.


Sorry for the lighting.  Sigh! Must do something about this BUT you can get the idea anyway.

Now the cute little penguin card in the back does have a head.  Sorry about the photo.  The penguin is stamped on the inside of the card and a circle window is punched on the front with the hat on the front.  It is so cute.  I love all these ideas. Thank you to all the clever demonstrators in the Inky Fingers Team.  Nice to share ideas.

I will show you my swaps.  Once again – tags! Now that wasn’t the theme but funny how it works out.


I CASED the red one from Pinterest and made up the other in Smoky Slate, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay.  These use the ‘Sleigh Ride’ Edgelits.  For the red one I punched out stars from Gold Foil using the Star Border punch.  The Smoky Slate one I have punched out one star in Silver Foil. Then I added some Dazzling Details for a sparkle but you really can’t see that well sorry.

I better get going. Our internet is being switched off soon to transfer it over to the new NBN network.  Hopefully it is not too long offline.  I think my kids are going to die!!!!! 😉

Thanks for visiting.


Catalogues, Christmas, Stampin' Up!


Today’s card I want to share is using the great bundle ‘Reason For The Season’ stamp set and Festive Flower Builder Punch.  I love how this card came together.


The base card is Real Red.  That seems to be the colour card I have used most with these recent Christmas cards!  I embossed some Whisper White cardstock with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.  The flower is so easy to put together.  Stamp out all your petals and leaves, I have used Real Red on Whisper White and Mossy Meadow ink on the cardstock.  I punched out a circle with the 1 3/8″ circle punch in scrap white card and built up the flower on this.  I have used the Multipurpose adhesive to adhere it all together. The centre is punched out with Gold Foil and I added a Real Red Brights Candy Dot to the centre.  The “merry” cut from Gold Foil is from the Christmas Greetings Thinlets.

I would really recommend this Bundle.  You can find it on p31 of the Holiday Catalogue.  In Australia it is $57.75. Save 15% as a Bundle. Gotta love that!  You can order this through my Online Store HERE or by phoning/emailing me.

Here are these great products.

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.
