The new Designer Series Paper is just gorgeous isn’t it???

Why not share some with me?? It’s a great way to get a sampler of some of the papers without trying to get through a whole pack.

Here are the details. (Australian residents only).

See the papers closer below.

Total for your share is $38 for 70 6″x6″ pieces of pretty Designer Series Paper.

If you head to my store -> HERE you can check each individual print on each pack.

Why not try a little Specialty Paper??

Let me know by dropping me a comment or emailing me at and we can arrange payment. I can then get them out to you as soon as I can.

Have a great week,

I have 2 cards for you today. Same design. I have just changed the colours.

I have used the Bottled Happiness Bundle (stamps and punch). And the gorgeous Sun Prints Designer Series Paper. The left one is in Orchid Oasis and the Right one in Sweet Sorbet. What would be your favourite?

There are lots of different images in the Bottled Happiness Stamp set. And I am warming to it. I wasn’t sure about this set at first. I received it as a gift from Stampin’ Up! from our recent Ontour event.

I do love that you have a separate stamp in the set that does the line inside the bottle. It gives it extra dimension I think. I only just discovered that when I was making this card.

This is the Bottled Happiness Bundle.

And the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper. This really doesn’t do it justice. You need to check out all the pages individually to see how gorgeous it is.

You can check them out in my store -> HERE.

If you need to shop and get some gorgeousness head to my store at the above link for the paper. If shopping online please use the Host Code: CMDF9NBR

Have a great day,

If you follow me along on Facebook you might have seen a discussion over this card.

I wasn’t happy with it. I thought it was the vellum. I had lots of great suggestions and have now updated the card.

I removed the vellum piece. That really wasn’t working right. I tried a diecut circle or shape but the white circle there was the largest I had. In the end I lengthened the ribbon and kept it simple.

I have used the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper and the Bottled Happiness Stamp Set. The sentiment is from Inspired Thoughts.

I thought I would share it with because even when we have been creating cards for some time and we are so-called “professionals” (kind of), we still have challenges. I haven’t even shown you many of the cards that haven’t made it out in to the world. So don’t be discouraged if sometimes your cards don’t come up the way you would like. Just keep creating and …if you are unsure always ask. People love to share their ideas.

Keep on creating,

A couple of posts I shared a card with the Panda from the Wild and Sweet stamp set.

I have put together a video on some tips when colouring it. You can check that out now. (Email subscribers the video may not show up in your email so head to the blog post directly).

Here is the card again if you missed it earlier. How sweet is this panda just hanging around??

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 Splatters 3D 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.

I have a sweet card for you today. This is with a new stamp set coming very soon in the new Annual Catalogue. This is the Wild and Sweet Stamp Set.

This one is coloured with the Watercolour Pencils. The background paper is from the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper. This sentiment from the On The Horizon Stamp set works well with this set don’t you think?? It is diecut with the new Stylish Shapes Dies.

You can now see the video on Tips to Watercolouring this image on Youtube -> HERE.

I had a play with the new Incolors this week. I will share more with them later. I have also been playing with the new Bottled Happiness stamps and punch.

I will admit I wasn’t sure of this bundle when I first got it. The stamp set was a bonus from Stampin’ Up! for the Ontour event recently. I am warming up to it and will share more with these soon too. It’s great fun playing with new products.

The sentiment is diecut with a die from the new Nature’s Prints Dies. It’s a very different shape to what we have seen before.

Hope you like it.

Be sure to check back soon for some more Bottled Happiness cards – and new colours. 🙂

How gorgeous is the Waves of the Ocean Designer Series Paper?? I am just loving it.

This card today really let’s it shine.

You don’t need much more to it. I created a frame effect with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

I just love the blue and green colours together.

This card was inspired by one I saw on my travels but I didn’t take a note of it. This was one of my cards in the recent Waves of the Ocean Cards By Mail. I think it has been a popular one and just wanted to share it with you.

Hope you have a great day,
