Isn’t the Hippest Hippos Set for Sale-A-Bration so cute??

The Hippo Dies that go with them just take it to another level. But today I’m not showing the dies. Let’s just have a simple card with the Hippest Hippos. I have pulled out the 2022 In Colors too using the 2022 In Color Designer Series Paper.

The card mat was embossed with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder.

I created a different edge from the 2022-2024 In Color paper with the Basic Borders Dies. The leafy stem is from the Splendid Stems Dies.

While I had everything out from making the card I showed you last post I thought I would put together another card.  This one also uses the Carried Away Designer Series Paper and Lift Me Up Bundle. It also has a similar colour scheme of the Peekaboo Peach and Night of Navy.


This time I stamped some small clouds on to the white card and layered over the DSP.  I added a piece of the Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon before adhering it to the Peekaboo Peach card mat and then the Night of Navy Card base.

For the sentiment I inked just the “Happy Birthday” from the Lift Me Up Stamp set with the Night of Navy before stamping it and cutting it out with one of the Project Life Framelits.  You might just be able to see some silver Thread looped up behind the sentiment too??  The large Hot Air Balloon was diecut from Night of Navy with the Up and Away Thinlits.

I hope your weekend is going awesome??  Be back again soon,

I can finally share this card with you.  I was so excited to finish this card but it had to wait. It’s kinda cute.  🙂

I was asked by a friend to make a special card for her 2 year old.  Things she liked was pink, purple and orange – and fish! How to incorporate all that??  I decided to go with the ‘Balloon Builders’ stamp set.

So, here it is for you. I have a few different angles for you.



The “Hugs and Kisses” sentiment is from the ‘Party Pants’ Sale-A-Bration set.  The ideas for the different balloon animals were from Pinterest. I had to incorporate a couple of fish in there somewhere. 😉  The Designer Series Paper is from ‘It’s My Party’ paper stack.


And the back gives a place to write on.


What do you think?  This was a labour of love and I had so much fun creating and it was very well received.

Thanks for visiting me.

I have had the ‘Bloomin’ Heart’ Thinlits Die for a  little while now but only managed to make some cards with it last week.  I have to say I was a little intimidated by the delicateness of it. It was going to be fiddly pushing out those extra little bits that you don’t want. I braved it though and had a go.  Now I had my new Die Brush to use too.

I cut the heart from the ‘It’s My Party’ DSP stack and using the Die Brush and the foam pad that comes with it I gave it a few rolls over the back of the die and Voila! out popped the heart with very little effort.  I don’t think I minded this Heart die now.

I thought I would show you the card that I made with the pretty little heart.

heart card

I stamped the flourish from ‘Timeless Textures’ on Sahara Sand card.  Then matted that on to Whisper White and then adhered that to a Thick Whisper White Card base.  I cut some flowers from Pool Party using the little flowers in the ‘Bloomin’ Heart’ Thinlits and adhered those on.  Some Adhesive Pearls adds a little Elegance.

The greeting is from  the Sale-A-Bration set ‘Sky is the Limit’. Have you got this set yet from Sale-A-Bration?  There is less than a week left to grab it and then it is gone.  Some new sets are being added after the 15th.  I cut the greeting with the ‘Project Life’ Framelits and added Pearls to finish.

 I have now made a few cards with the ‘Bloomin’ Heart’ Thinlits so I will show you those over the next few days.

Have a Happy Day,




Can you believe that there is only 3 days left of Sale-A-Bration and the Summer Mini Catalogue.  Wow,  these past few months have flown by!  I have really loved using the SAB set ‘Bliss’.  It is such a beautiful set and so versatile.  I just wish it was in the main Stampin’ Up! Catalogue and I can keep using it for a long time still.  I don’t think it will be one I will part with in a hurry. 

With these cards I want to show you today, I actually made the Marina Mist card before Sale-A-Bration started.  I thought It would be nice to have a set of these in different colours, but I only got around to making the other 2 last week.  The original design was inspired by a card by Ronda, a US demonstrator.

Here they are individually. 

Marina Mist and Black.

Melon Mambo and Black:

Old Olive and Black:

I love the Old Olive and Black.  It is not as clear in the photo but in real life the Olive against the black is intensified – If I can say that!   The Olive is so much more deeper.   It is such a contrast.

They are just very simple cards.  I added some narrow black Grosgrain ribbon tied around the bottom of the torn black card mat, and a matching Rhinestone brad.  I think they make a nice set.  If I had more time I could make a folder for them but I think I have to leave that for now. Time is running out. 

So, you still have a little bit of time to put those last minute Sale-A-Bration orders in and get your free stamp set.  You can’t miss out on this ‘Bliss’ set, or any of the others for that matter.  So contact your demonstrator today.  If you haven’t got one, drop me an email with your order.  I can send it anywhere in Australia.  For now, I’m off to bed.  Tomorrow is another day of stamping – I hope!!  🙂

I recently had my Punch Bunch Gift box class.  I can now finally get around to showing you.  I used the Sale-A-Bration set ‘Punch Bunch’  and created this little box big enough to fit 4 3″x3″ cards.  These were a lot of fun to put together.  I used Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Whisper White to create them.

This is the box with the cards in them.

I will give you instructions for the box at the end.  This box was inspired by a box on our Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator website.  I adjusted it to fit these little cards in.  On the box I created a little window by punching out the front with the 1 3/4″ circle punch.  (Do this before you assemble the box!!).  I thought it was nice to have the window.  No matter what card you have at the front it shows through.  I had stamped over the box with the flower from ‘Bliss’ Sale-A-Bration set.  For the flowers on the front I used markers to colour the flower on the ‘For You’ stamp.  After stamping I cut them out.  They were adhered to the front after wrapping around some narrow taffeta Old Olive ribbon.  You can’t really tell but I added some bling to the flower with the 2-way glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds.

Here is the box with all the cards showing.  I will show you the cards close-up below.

For the cards I used the Big Shot and various punches. 

Here are the instructions for this cute Window Box.

Cut card 19cmx14cm.  On the 19cm side, score at 8cm and 11cm.  On the 14cm side, score at 3cm and 11cm.  Fold on all the score lines.  Cut the small score lines on the long side up to the score line running across.   (Remember to stamp your box and punch the circle before assembling).  Add Sticky Strip on the side tabs and small tab and assemble.

I hope these are clear enough.  Email me if you have any problems. 🙂

Have you got your Free Punch Bunch set yet, or any of the other Sale-A-Bration sets??? You only have 2 weeks left, so get to it.  You can select any of the Sale-A-Bration sets with a $100 order, or have a workshop and when your sales are over $600 you can select another SAB set for FREE.  See your demonstrator, or if you don’t have one you can contact me and I can have it shipped anywhere in Australia.

Have fun creating your own box and cards.  Until next time, Happy Stamping!!

On Saturday I held my Sale-A-Bration Kick-Off event to start the new year of stamping.  It was a great day with some lovely ladies.  I think they enjoyed their stamping????  This is the project I put together for them.

I have used the Sale-A-Bration set ‘Bliss’.  I love that set, it is so versatile.  I used the lovely rich Cherry Cobbler and Regal Rose.  This is the box.

This is just a little narrow box as you can see in the photo below.  Just the size to put some small love note size cards or something simlar.

The original box came from a USTAMP project a few years ago.  I modified it a little to fit our card size so I could get 2 per sheet.  On the front of the box we scalloped the edge of the Regal Rose card with the scallop trim punch.  On the Whisper White card, I sponged the edges of the card with the Regal Rose ink.  The flourish from the set was stamped in Cherry Cobbler.  The butterflies for the box and the card were stamped in scrap card in Regal Rose and then rock and rolled in Cherry Cobbler.  These were cut and raised up with dimensionals.  The little tags were made with the Tiny Tags set.  The flourish from that set was stamped in Regal Rose on the white and Cherry Cobbler on the Regal Rose.  The greeting was stamped on the white.  They were punched out and layered and raised up with the dimensionals.  Phew!  That’s a mouthful!  Does that all make sense???  Here is a close up to see that clearer.

To add the bling I added a Rhinestone to the centre of the flourish and the edge of the tags.

The card was similar to the box with the flourish and 2 butterflies.  The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments.  Here is a close up of the card.

I had made up a similar box in different colours for the lucky Door Prize.

I used Elegant Eggplant cardstock and Lap of Luxury DSP.  The tag was made using the “For You” Flower from the Sale-A-Bration set “Punch Bunch.  It was first stamped in Elegant Eggplant and then stamped again in Pretty in Pink.  I cut the one flower out and raised it up with dimensionals.  This was punched out with the 1 1/4″ circle then matted with a 1 3/8” circle in Elegant Eggplant and I then punched out a scallop circle in Pretty in Pink.  I added some Dazzling Diamonds for a bit of bling.

Ok, I hope I didn’t bore you too much with all those details.  It was a fun day and I’m looking forward to more stamping with my friends soon.  Right now, I’m getting off here.  It is such a hot day here today.  The summer weather has arrived just when all the kids go back to school today. 

See you soon,

cards, swaps, Techniques, Uncategorized


Last week we had our first team meeting for the year with Ness’ Inkyfingers.  I love these meetings.  I come away with such inspiration and encouragement.  Each month we have a team swap and although not everyone gets involved,  it is always a great way of getting ideas. 

Here are our team swaps.  This month was Sale-A-Bration.

The ribbon loop on the left is a bookmark by JenniferLeonie has a gorgeous card with the Vintage Labels.  It has the French Script background stamp (Sorry, you can’t see that too well!).   The little cello bag with jelly snakes and the Good Neighbours topper was by Sarah.  I love how Sarah hung the tag from a hole in the eyelet punch border. My card is on the right.  I have more details on that below.  Andrea’s gorgeous card is at the bottom.  You can check that one out further on her blog.  Don’t you love the sparkles!  One day I will get a new camera that will take clearer photos!!!

My swap card was inpired by a card I saw on Splitcoast by  It is so simple but really lovely.  She had white ribbon along the bottom, but since I didn’t have any I went for the card strip and crimped card strip overlay.  That worked OK I think!!!

The sponged square was using the reverse masking technique.  I cut the shape from scrap card stock.  I used Dotto, a removal adhesive, to hold this piece while I sponged onto the card.  The scrap card can be easily removed to show the “neat” area!!  I then stamped the image with a darker tone of colour and added the greeting.  It was then simply a matter of adhering this to the base card and adding the same colour as the base card for the bottom strip and a crimped piece in the lighter shade on top. 

I had made these cards for my Stamp-A-Stack this month and had several colour combinations.

On the left is Brocade Blue and Night of Navy, The middle Regal Rose and Rose Red, and the right, Tempting Turquoise and Taken with Teal.  Each one was using one of the images from the Sale-A-Bration set ‘Happy Moments’.  This is such a lovely set and is so versatile.  There are 4 images and 3 greetings you can use for any occasion. 

Have you got your free set yet.  You have until the end of March to place an order of $100 and you can choose 1 of 4 great sets for FREE.  So, stock up on your cardstock and ink and grab a stamp set or a punch.  These are great sets and won’t be available after March.  I can have
