cards, Catalogues, Christmas


I am back with another Sunday Suite today.  Before the weather heats up too much here I thought we should look at this cute Let It Snow Suite.  We don’t usually get snow at Christmas.  Well I can’t say never because strange things have happened … 🙂

Snowmen are not usually the first thing we think about for Christmas though with the heat and we are usually making sand men rather than snowmen.  But you gotta love these cute snowmen.

This is all the products available in the Let It Snow Suite Bundle.  You can buy them all with one item code (#153386 $230.25 AUD)

You can purchase the items individually too.

The Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper.  You really need to see this paper closer (HERE).  It has glittery patterns on one side and the other side is more versatile prints you could use at any time of the year.

Red Glimmer Paper is back!! I am really happy this lovely shiny paper is available again.  $8.75 AUD for 2 sheets 12″x12″

Snowfall Accents Puff Paint.  This is a fun product.  Run it on to your project like a liquid glue.  Heat it up and see it puff up. You will just want to leave it a little time to let it set.

Way cool!  $7.75 AUD

Here are some samples with this fun suite.  You just have to love those snowmen having a fun time in the snow.

The little Tiny Keepsakes boxes are really sweet.  They make little treat holders measuring (5.4 x 4.8 x 4.8 cm).  Just the size for a chocolate or 2.  These are made with the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box dies ($59 AUD) or the bundle with the stamp set is $84.50 AUD

Happy Stamping,


cards, Catalogues, Techniques, Tutorials


I have been sharing lots of projects with the ‘Beautiful You’ set this past week.  When I first started seeing ideas with this set on Pinterest I noticed that some of the dresses were different.  I was curious and went investigating further. I thought I would share with you today how it can be done so you can create more with this set.


I have put together a tutorial for you.


1. You can do either of two things. a) draw over the top part of the lady with the Black Stampin’ Write Marker or what I have done b) Place the stamp on the table top facing up. Mask the skirt area with a Post It note or piece of scrap paper. Leaving the stamp on the table ink up the stamp with the Black StazOn inkpad.  I have used StazOn as you will be watercolouring the image.

2. Stamp the image onto Thick Whisper White, Shimmery White card or Watercolor Paper as you will be watercolouring it.

3. With the Black Marker draw a skirt line that you would like.  If you prefer use a pencil and then go back over it with the Marker. You could create any style, short or long.

4. To Watercolour this I used the Real Red Watercolor Pencil, colour along the lines of the dress and the hat.  Using the Aquapainter blend over the colour.  You can build up the colour as you desire by going over the area but allow it to dry a little before adding more colour.

Assemble your card as you like.


To create this card I cut the image with the Layering Oval Framelits cutting a larger one with the Red Glimmer Paper. The sentiment was stamped in black and cut with a Framelit from the Stylish Stems.  Using the Duet Banner Punch I cut a banner from the Red Glimmer Paper and cut it down in the centre to adhere behind the sentiment.

To finish I looped around some Copper Thread and raised that off some Whisper White mat which had been embossed with the Falling Petals Embossing Folder.  Base card is Real Red.

Hope that was helpful for you.  You can use this idea to change different stamps. Go and experiment.


cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


I really liked the Merry Tags Framelits when I saw them in the Holiday Catalogue.  I got to finally play with them the other week.  Now I can share the cards with you.  I wasn’t sure where this card was going when I first started it but I was happy with the end result.


It’s great to  have different shapes in the Merry Tags Framelits set.  You have the detailed tags and you have circles as well.  So many options to create different looks.

For this card, the card base is Real Red and the card mat is Sahara Sand.  I stamped the dots in Sahara Sand on to Whisper White.  A number of people have asked me what you would do with the dotty stamp in the Merriest Wishes set.  I stamped them a few times along the top of the White card reinking the stamp each time.  I think they make a nice background or you could stamp them on card and cut them with one of the circles. What do you reckon?

I cut one of the detailed tags in Red Glimmer Paper and stamped the “25” in Memento black and then punched it out with the 1 1/4″ Circle punch. The small ornament shape is stamped in Emerald Envy and punched with the 3/4″ Circle punch.

The ornaments were raised up on the white card with Dimensionals and then finished off with some Gold Twine and to finish I stamped the sentiment in Real Red.

If you haven’t noticed these yet then here they are for you.  You can find them on p 21 of the Holiday Catalogue.
