I have 2 slightly different cards. Both with the Koala from the Wild and Sweet Stamp Set. Both are in Gray Granite and the paper is from the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper.
What’s your pick? Scallops or Stripes version.
The sentiment for the Scallop one is from the Sending Wishes Bundle. The “Make a Difference” sentiment (which is actually a really lovely sentiment to say to someone don’t you think??) is from the Inspiring Thoughts Stamp set.
The scallop edge is using the Scalloped Contour Dies.
The stripes is using the Stripes Folder from the Stripes and Splatters3D Embossing Folder pair. The Embossing Folders are narrow but I ran it through twice to cover the card mat. You don’t really even notice the “join”.
Have you checked out the new Catalogue yet?? Lots to love.
You can download the Catalogue -> HERE (For Australian residents).Scroll right to the bottom.
I have been playing with the Let’s Set Sail stamps and punch recently. Today we had fun using these in class. I thought I would share with you one of the cards which was quite popular.
It’s a simple card really and just cutting off the front of the card at half way.
This is the inside.
I am loving the circle diecut using the Beautiful Shapes Dies. Do you notice the squiggle embossed line around the edge? It gives your images a fun effect. It layers well with one of the Layering Circles Dies too.
I love that the Waves of the Ocean Designer Series Paper co-ordinates so well with the stamps and dies too.
The paper is running out very soon. Be sure to grab it.

The full Waves of the Ocean Collection is $140 AUD. You can buy the items individually too.
I had a play with new products. YAY! This stamp set caught my eye when I first looked at the new catalogue. I was excited when we received it as a gift at Onstage recently. This set is the Amazing Silhouettes.
I can’t show you the stamp set yet but it has 3 “silhouette” images – the Tree, a butterfly and a leaf stem. It’s been a lot of fun to play with already.
I simply stamped the tree in 3 different shades of green. Pear Pizzazz, Shaded Spruce and Garden Green. The sentiment is from Many Messages and heat embossed in white.
The New Mini Catalogue starts January 4th. Not long now.
Wednesday’s WOW! #130 – Extending your diecuts to make them larger.
This is a tip I use so often. It works well with punched out shapes too. If you have a die or a punch that you wish would be just a little larger, cut the piece in half and separate the pieces to adhere them under the images or sentiment.
This is what Stampin’ Up! have done in the tag on page 3 of the Mini Catalogue with the Christmas Season bundle and the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper -(and it’s a gorgeous tag they have created too).
