3D projects, Stampin' Up!


How was your Christmas?  I hope you had a lovely day.  They weather changed considerably here yesterday with rain and much cooler temperatures.  This changed our plans a bit but it all worked out.  Nothing like coziness with all the family on Christmas Day!!!

I know Christmas has now gone but I still want to show you this project.  I have been meaning to make one of these Christmas Banners for months.  I have looked around the internet but just wasn’t sure what to do.  On the weekend just gone I thought I should just ‘DO IT!!’  So I did!

Here is my Christmas Banner.


It is hard to see it all here so I will show you some close-up shots.





What I have used:

CARD: Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Silver Glimmer Paper, Very Vanilla, ‘Be of Good Cheer’ DSP.

BIG SHOT: Timeless Type Alphabet (retired), Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Snow Flurry Die, Top Note Die.

OTHER: Scallop Circle Punch, 2 step Owl Punch (centre of Snowflake), Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Adhesive Rhinestones.

I hope you like it???? It was fun to create.

Enjoy the rest of your Christmas celebrations and I look forward to you stopping by again soon.


3D projects, Stampin' Up!


Here we are in Box Week at Box #6.  These boxes are getting bigger now!


I found the template for this box on Becky’s 12 Days of Christmas 2009 edition.  You can find the details here.  This was the Bow Box in the collection.  If you scroll down the blog and look in the Right Hand column you can see the 2009 projects there.  You can purchase the Tutorial there too.

My box was created in Cherry Cobbler.  The frame on the front was stamped using “Memorable Moments” and then cut with the Labels Framelits.  The greeting is from “More Merry Messages”.  A little Candy Cane stamped from “Scentsational Season” and cut with the Holiday Framelits finishes the front.

Here is the top view.


The top was cut in Gumball Green and DSP strips (from “Be of Good Cheer DSP pack”) were adhered to the edges and top.  I cut 2 snowflakes with the Snow Flurry Die in Silver Glimmer Paper and Very Vanilla.  These were layered together.  The Cherry Cobbler circle in the centre was punched out using one of the small circles on the Owl Punch.  An adhesive pearl finished off the centre.  I cut a piece of the Cherry Cobbler Tulle and gathered that together and wrapped some thread around the centre to hold it all in place.  Once all the layers were adhered together they were fixed in place on top of the box with Dimensionals.  This box stands at 10.5cm or about 4 1/4″ tall.

Thanks for looking today.  We have our last box for our Box Week tomorrow so be sure to stop by.


3D projects


Where has the last week gone to??? I can’t believe they are flying past.  Already it is mid November!!!  I am here to finally show you my projects for the Inspiration Board at Heartfelt Stampin’ Up! event in Sydney last week.  I had been thinking about what to do for some time but when it came to it and there was one week to go, there was not a lot of time left.  So, what was I going to do??? I decided to make some Card Candy.  I don’t know about you but I am always on the lookout for these ideas.  They are great to quickly add to a card front or a tag and as a Demonstrator they can make great gifts for your hostesses.  So, with that I got creating!  Also, I thought I don’t have a lot of time, so these would be quick to whip up.  Well I was wrong on that count.  They probably took longer than a card because there were so many bits to them, but I had a lot of fun making them.  Once I started there was so many ideas coming.  Ok, so here they are for you.

Since Christmas is nearly upon us I thought Christmas Card Candy would be good.  Here is the Christmas one.

Here is a close-up of some of them.

Firstly I would like to say that if anyone out there is responsible for speeding up the clock, please revert it back. Thank You. Or even make it a little slower would be nice!!! I don’t know where the time is getting to but it is certainly flying past at an almighty pace.  Are you finding this???  We have reached the crazy time of year, end-of-year Dance Performances and extra practices that go with that, End-of-Year school presentations (and Final Year 6 events too), throw in a few extra stamping classes as well.  As for Christmas shoppping HA! Let’s not go there right now!  Anyway, I’m sure you are feeling the same too.  So you don’t want to hear about my happenings.  You have enough to deal with.  So, onto what you really came for – A CARD (or 2!).

The week before last I held my ‘Sparkly Christmas’ Class.  That was a lot of fun.  We all got glittery but learnt some fun techniques in the process.  Here are 2 of the cards we made.

This one was inspired by my lovely friend Andrea.  This is using the Dazzling Dust technique, I think!!! It is Really very sparkly.  It’s a shame it doesn’t capture it too much in the photo.  It is much better IRL!

This next one was inspired by Colleen here.  This is my version.

I have used the ‘Delicate Designs’ Embossing Folder along the bottom.  The Snowflake was cut from the Silver Glimmer Paper using the Snow Flurry Die.  It is SO sparkly.  I wish I could show that to you!!!!  Photos just don’t do them justice sometimes! This is such a simple card but I think so elegant.

We did a third card – a Tunnel card.  I will show that to you next time.

As for me, I must now dash – school pickup, swimming training for Carlie, Football training for Josh!!

Catch you sometime soon,
