3D projects, cards, Stampin' Up!


Recently I showed you a card made with the ‘You’re So sweet’ set.  If you missed that just pop back 2 posts.  Today I have a gift bag and card I made with the set.


I saw the Treat Bag on Pinterest initially and just changed it a little.  The paper is from the paper stack ‘Cherry On Top’.  I made the bag with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets.  The little star is in the set which I could cut inside the stamped star.  How neat!!  I just added a star strip cut with the star die in the set in Crushed Curry and a DSP banner.  The greeting label is cut with of the little dies in the Thinlets set too.

Then I made a card. Using some more of the ‘Cherry On Top’ Paper Stack I added a strip down the side of the Cucumber Crush base card.  I stamped the greeting banner from the ‘You’re So Sweet’ set first on Crushed Curry in Crushed Curry and then on Whisper White in Bermuda Bay.  I cut the white one out with the banner framelit in the Treat Bag Thinlets and cut the Crushed Curry one out by hand.  It needed something else under the banner so I cut a strip of Watermelon Wonder card and flagged the ends.


See the cute balloons?? I made them with the 1″ circle punch and the owl punch.  I punched out the bottom part of the owl and trimmed it and adhered that piece under the punched circle.  I added some White Baker’s Twine underneath.  Cute hey!! Sorry I think so anyway 🙂

I think they  make a cute gift set what do you reckon?


Here is the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets.  I like all the “extra bits” that come in the set.  They are so versatile.

Latte 12 weeks Header

I have some exciting news for you.  Over the next couple of months.  I will be bringing you ’12 weeks of Christmas’.  I have teamed with some other creative ladies in our team to bring you some exciting projects to help you in your Christmas preparations.  Each week I will share a project with you that either myself or one of the other clever ladies have made.  Today is the first project!

Today’s project is brought to you by Leonie Schroder.  Here is the project and then I will tell you about it.


Leonie has created a Star Box Stack.  This stack comprises three Star Gift Boxes all tied up with the gorgeous Silver Satin Ribbon and star frame tags from our Foil Cardstock. These would be great to give to someone if you were giving them small things like jewellery or chocolates, Or maybe use it as a Table Centre piece or Decoration.  These could be made any time of the year for any occasion.

Do you want to know how to make it???  Here is a video for you.

We have a special bundle put together to create your own Star Box Stack.

cards, Punch Art


I can’t believe I forgot to show you this card.  I made this a few weeks ago for one of my Great Niece’s 1st Birthday.  I was a little stumped at first what to do as I had nothing really suitable.  I did consider the ‘Something for Baby’ set but then I thought PUNCH ART!! It has been ages since I did something like that.  This little bear took a little while to work out.  I did have a Punch Art Bear similar I had made a while ago but I had to reconfigure him.  Once he was done the card came together fairly quickly. Do you think he is cute???



I used a number of oval and circle punches to create his body and sponged all the pieces. The greeting is from ‘Chalk Talk’ and finished with some Melon Mambo Candy Dots. I embossed some Melon Mambo card with the ‘Alphabet Press’ Embossing Folder and layered this piece on to a piece of Whisper White (after tying around some Whisper White Baker’s Twine). Then this was all adhered on to a Melon Mambo Card base.

I hope you like my cute little friend.

I hope you have wonderful weekend wherever you may be. Sending some Bear Hugs your way.

A month ago I showed you a Bon Voyage card I made with MDS for my son as he headed off to Fiji for 4 weeks.  You can see that card here if you missed it. I can say he has now returned safely. The day after he returned my daughter set off for China as part of a trip with her Dad’s employer. There are over 100 children from countries all over the world.  She will be away for 3 1/2 weeks (One sad Mumma again!).  It is a big adventure for her at only 13 years, but a fantastic opportunity.  So, with her leaving I had to make another Bon Voyage card (I hope this doesn’t become a regular thing!). Once again I turned to MDS to create it.

My Project 52-001

She loves orange and loves daisies so I thought this was fairly close.  She loved it anyway.  The dotty background was a digital DSP (I can’t remember the name of it now).  The stamp set was the digital ‘Enjoy Every Moment’ for the text and the flowers. I added a couple of other digital stamps.  (I really need to make a note of the stamps I use!).   The speech bubble was a punch which I coloured in Tangerine Tango and added a mat in Daffodil Delight.  I was going to add real bling to it but in the end just went for the Digital Rhinestones.

Have you tried MDS yet?  You can always download the free MDS Trial version and have a play to see how it works. Then if you like it, you can download the software and add your digital elements as you go.  Check out the link to the right for my store and you can see there how you can go about downloading it. If you need any help, just ask me. I will try and help you out.

cards, Masculine


I made a special Thank You card on the weekend.  My husband had a really bad Mountain Bike accident 2 weeks ago.  Fortunately there were no broken bones but a few other injuries and stitches.  This Thank You card is for his mate who he was riding with.  I am so thankful for all he did on the day and continually does for us.  I added a Gift Card with the card but this “Thank You” doesn’t seem enough.


The card had to be manly and I was careful with the colour choices.  No red was to be seen!!  I used Gorgeous Grunge and Chalk Talk.  It was finished off with a ‘Hung Up Cute Clip’ (p 170 of the Annual Catalogue).

The last couple of weeks have been crazy.  I have just now managed to get to my stamp room again to create. It is such a good feeling to escape and stamp!!!

See you again soon,




I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day.  Hard to believe after all the craziness leading up to it, it is now all done for another year.  Why does it get so crazy!!! We had a lovely Christmas Day though.  Church Christmas Eve and time with the family for Christmas Lunch.  It was nice and relaxing.

Today I thought I would share some special hand-made cards we received for Christmas.  They are all so gorgeous and it is always great to see new ideas.  I won’t go in to too much details of the cards.  If you want to know more about them or a closer look just let me know.

This first group is from my close Demonstrator friends.  How lucky am I!


These 2 are from some special blog readers who have now become good friends.  The one on the left is from Lynda.  Thanks Lynda for your continued loyalty and encouraging comments.  Isn’t this a clever way of using ‘Lovely as a Tree’.  That set is so versatile.  The one on the right is from my lovely Blog friend Patti from the the US.  How cute is that snowman???  It has been lovely to get to know Patti over this past year.  Thanks for always stopping by Patti and encouraging me along the way. 🙂


This next group is from some of my friends.  Some of them are from customers that I can now call lovely friends.  Aren’t they all so gorgeous??


I hope you might feel inspired by this lovely mix.  I love looking at them and touching them.  They bring a smile to my face.

Thanks for stopping by.  Come and visit again soon,

cards, Stampin' Up!



We are officially celebrating Stampin’ Up!’s 25th Birthday this week. Receive 25% off 25 selected stamp sets.  These are only available for one week only until October 28th.

See them all here.

Here are some cards with some of the discounted sets on offer.

One with Betsy’s Blossoms I made last year using Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit and Rasperry Ripple.


‘Oh Hello’  Another earlier card. I used the ‘Tea for Two’ DSP and added a Lace Doily.  The flower was coloured with Tangerine Tango and Lucky Limeade Markers.


This is a card I made just today using ‘A Dozen Thoughts’.   I needed to make a card for a reply to a wedding for Glenn’s Nephew and his Partner.  I didn’t want to just email a reply.  The colour and the hearts were inspired by the Wedding Invitation.  The Background stamp is one from ‘Clockworks’.  I punched hearts out using the large Heart Punch and cut one from the Gold Foil Sheets and I punched one from Blushing Bride.  They were both embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.


There are so many more fantastic sets so go and check them out now.
