cards, Catalogues, Sale-A-Bration, Stampin' Up!


I have a bright, happy card for you today.¬† I wanted to create some more with this fun Sale-A-Bration set So Hoppy Together.¬† I have made a few cards recently.¬† If you missed them you can click on the tag ‘So Hoppy Together’ down the bottom.

For the card I cut off about 3cm (1 1/4″) on the front panel.¬† The cheery paper is from the How Sweet It Is DSP pack.¬† I had JUST enough of that paper for the front.¬† The frog is stamped in Memento and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.¬†

Of course, I used the Layering Circles Framelits and the Stitched Shapes Framelits.¬† These don’t move too far off my table. The little tag is from the Wood Crate Framelits.¬† It’s just the right size.¬† The card was inspired by THIS card here but I decided to cut the card down and changed it around a little.¬†

Here is the inside.¬† I stamped the flies down the side.¬† Cute but in real life I don’t like being in a swarm of flies especially with those bulging eyes.¬† ūüôā¬† The sentiment is from Amazing Life.

How fun is it??

cards, Christmas, Stampin' Up!

Here is today’s projects.¬† Well it’s actually 2 cards for you in different colours.

This one is in Bermuda Bay.¬† I actually made this one a few weeks ago and we used it as the make in my team meeting.¬† You can’t tell but that gorgeous swirl is cut in the White Velvet Paper.¬† So soft and furry.¬† I do love it. The sentiment is stamped in Basic Gray.¬† I find that a little softer sometimes than stamping in the black.¬† The tiny snowflakes are stamped in Pool Party.

This version below is in Night of Navy with the small snowflakes stamped in Balmy Blue.  The sentiment on this one is stamped in the Memento Black.

Which colour do you like better?

The Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper is just lovely.¬† What about those little Leaves Trickets?¬† There are 2 different shape leaves in the set and they come in Copper and Silver.¬† You can also get the Thick Twine in a set.¬† This colour is the new Incolor Grapefruit Grove.

cards, Catalogues, Masculine, Stampin' Up!


As we say Good-Bye to lots of favourites from this current catalogue we can’t forget the boys can we!¬† I think a lot of people have trouble creating cards for the men-folk.¬† Below are a few of my favourite sets that are great for them.

NB: The quality of these photos aren’t great.¬† I do apologise.¬† These were a few years ago and I hadn’t watermarked most of them either so do be kind.¬† But I hope it gives you some inspiration for your own projects.¬† And looking past the cards you might realise that you DO need these stamps in your collection. ūüôā


I can’t believe this one is going.¬† It has been around for a couple of years but it is a great manly set.¬† Here are some of the cards I have made with this set.¬† You can click on the link for more details.

This one was I made for swaps for a Stampin’ Up! event.¬† You can see the original post -> HERE.

Just after I made these cards I made a box which I realised matched perfectly.

You can see the details of the box -> HERE.  This would be a great set for the man in your life.

I loved how these cards turned out.¬† Simply adding the fun paper but you don’t need the fuss for boys.

You can see the post -> HERE.  This post has a few other cards for boys too.

Lots of fun images and sentiments in this set.  You can find this in my store HERE now. (Clear $61 AUS)


I think this set is overlooked.¬† It’s a great one for the boys.¬† It adds a fun sentiment to any cards and you can have the matching Badge punch to punch the shape out. (Edited: I see that the punch has already sold out!).

See the full post ->HERE.  I know the Nailed It set went last year and both these cards use this set but you could use any other set.

Details for this card below are -> HERE. 

See the Badges and Banner set in store HERE  (Clear $33).

Below are just a couple more stamp sets that would be great for the boys – big and small.


What a cool set this one is.¬† (projects courtesy Stampin’ Up!)

cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!, Techniques


I really love the effect of using the Stampin’ Blends over heat embossing (AKA Black Magic Technique).¬† It seems to really give a vibrancy to the images.¬† I showed one with the Epic Celebrations set yesterday.¬† Today it is the Beautiful Peacock set.

The Beautiful Peacock set is one of the Sale-A-Bration Free choices.¬† I haven’t used this a lot but it is quite a fun set.¬† I have seen some fantastic samples with it.

To create the Black Magic Effect

Stamp your image in Versamark and Heat Emboss in White Embossing Powder.¬† When cooled colour over the embossing with the Stampin’ Blends.¬† (The Blends will not be available to order now until late May but store this idea in mind for later if you haven’t got them yet).¬† The Blends colours I used were the Light Old Olive, the Dark Daffodil Delight and the Light Rich Razzleberry.

I stamped the Peacock body on a scrap piece of black card and then coloured it and cut it out with scissors.  This was then raised up off the card with Dimensionals.

To finish the card stamp your sentiment on Lemon Lime Twist card and cut with the smallest of the Lots of Labels Framelits.  I added some loops of Silver Thread under the label piece before raising it up off the card with Dimensionals and added some Rhinestones in the centres of the Flowers.  The card base is Sweet Sugarplum.

Only a week left for Sale-A-Bration.¬† I am sad with so many of these great sets leaving.¬† Don’t miss out to grab your Free set with your qualifying order.¬†
