cards, Classes, Techniques


Just over one week left of Sale-A-Bration now.  I still have a number of cards to share with you using these fun, free Sale-A-Bration items.  So this next week we are cramming them all in.

This Epic Celebrations set is so cool and such a good set for the “teens”.

The stamped and coloured sneaker piece was made a few weeks ago now when I made the coloured set.  You can see that post -> HERE.  This piece was left over when I was testing the results.  I thought it would be worth keeping and using.  To make that I stamped the sneaker in Versamark and then heat embossed in White powder.  After it cooled a little I went over it with the Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’  Blends.  The black card piece was then cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

I have shown you some Brusho Crystals backgrounds in the last couple of posts too.  Since I had a piece of the inked Brusho samples lying around still I thought I would add that to the card.  They seemed to match in well.  To create this piece I sprinkled over some Shimmery White card with the Yellow Crystals and the Gamboge colour.  Then the piece was misted with water with the Spritzer.

To finish the card, I embossed a piece of white card with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.  Then the piece was stamped with the sentiment from Party Pandas and the “spots” from Epic Celebrations.  The card base is Pumpkin Pie.



Due to a huge demand for the Stampin’  Blends over the past few months the supply of these are very low.  New supplies won’t be in stock for some time so Stampin’  Up! have made the decision to make these unavailable to order until late May.  SO, if you want any (or all) and you can’t wait until late May then ORDER NOW – TONIGHT BY 8PM AEST.  I will be finalising an order tonight so contact me OR order online -> HERE.  Please use the Host Code: UUDCYQDV

cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


A couple of weeks ago I played around with the Lift Me Up Bundle.  I will share the cards with you over the next few days.  To start off I went looking around Pinterest.  I was inspired by THIS card from Helen in the UK.  Here is my version.



I cut a circle with one of the larger Circles from the Stitched Framelits out of the cool Carried Away Designer Series Paper that is available Free with Sale-A-Bration. (How cool is it that this paper co-ordinates with the Lift Me Up Bundle.  Good thinking Stampin’ Up!).  That was adhered on to the white card mat.  The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy at the bottom and then adhered on to a Night of Navy Card mat and then the Peekaboo Peach Card base.

Stamp the small Hot Air Balloon and cut it out with the Up and Away Thinlits.  Also cut some White clouds using the cloud Framelits too.  (I think some nice Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Ppaer clouds would look good instead of the plain white). Adhere the Hot Air Balloon and the clouds over the DSP circle piece.  I added a little White Baker’s Twine bow to finish.

Get your ‘Lift Me Up’ Bundle HERE in my store.  Clear mount $78.25 AUS.  Wood mount also available.

I will be back very soon with another Hot Air Balloon card.


cards, Stampin' Up!


I have been eyeing off these type of Framelits for a while and I am so excited that Stampin’ Up! have released them.  And early! These will be available in the 2017 Annual Catalogue but why wait until then. Get them now during November.

These ‘Stitched Shapes’ Framelits create a “dotty” stitched effect around your cut shape. They are $50 and there are 12 dies in all in Circles, Squares and Ovals.


They will co-ordinate with many of the current sets but Stampin’ Up! have announced 25% off select sets that will work well with these.


Here they are for you.
