It’s Kelly’s Birthday!

kellys blog hop header

It’s my lovely friend from Western Australia, Kelly Kent’s Birthday!!  She is having a couple of blog hops to celebrate and I’m so excited to be a part of it!

I wanted to have a play with some new products, so here is part of the new Share What  You Love Suite which is available to purchase right now!  Yes that’s right, you don’t have to wait until 1 June to get your hands on new products.  Just click on the image below to check it out on my online store.

I’ve also used one of the fabulous tutorials by Bronwyn Eastley, which you can purchase here.  It’s the Tri-Fold Window Card which is such a wow card!

I used the Layered oval Framelits to cut out the centres of the card.  And have you noticed the colour of the cardstock!!  Yes, it’s Mint Macaron making a come back in the Colour Revamp!!  I love this colour and am so glad to be able to play with it again. Now when I created my card, I didn’t have the mint macaron ink pad so I just used a versa mark ink pad to create a tone on tone look.   Oh and check out the colour of my ink, it’s the new Grapefruit Grove!

And isn’t the Share What you Love Specialty DSP just beautiful!  There are 4 sheets of each of pattern of the DSP and many of them have a pearly finish to them.  So pretty!!

I also added half a pearlized doily and the new Rich Razzleberry velvet ribbon.  Love velvet ribbons!

New Catty Pennsationals Blog Hop

I’m so excited to doing a Blog Hop tonight with my amazing team, the Pennsationals and to be sharing the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue with you.

There are so many fabulous new products in this catalogue, I had trouble deciding what to share with you.  For my first card, I decided to go with the Just Add Text stamp set and the new Delightful Daisy DSP.

I used my favourite framelits, the Stitched Shape framelits and the matching Layering Oval framelits.  Oh and check out the new Daffodil Delight Double stitched ribbon.

For my second card, I went with Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  This set has an interesting combination of stamps.  I really like the flowers in this set.

Now I have to confess that Lemon Lime Twist is not my favourite In Color, however, I thought I would give it a go as a watercolor background.  I guess it’s ok!  lol!

I used Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo and Flirty Flamingo and I was quite surprised at how nice they look together.

Next up on the hop is my lovely upline and friend, Tracy Penn.

If you happen to get lost on the hop, here is a list of all the participants.

GDP – Casing Louise

I don’t get a chance to play along at Global Design Project often but I had a little time to play this week.  They are casing one of the talented designers this week, Louise Sharp.  I love her work so I was excited to join in!

 

I decided to case the layout and I wanted to use the Birthday Fiesta stamp set as I just love the Llama!!  I used the cactus piece of the Festive Birthday DSP as it’s also a little quirky!  I simply used the reverse side of this paper for the Melon Mambo piece.

The oval sentiment just grew as I started with the happy birthday then I noticed the floral stamp so I added that too!  Fortunately, it fitted into the oval framelits.  I just tucked the Llama in behind the sentiment for a little fun.

I hope you like my card, please let me know in the comments below.

Don’t forget that it is the last week of Sale-a-bration, so make sure you get your freebies soon!!

Happy Stamping

CTC88 – Everyday Occasions

ctc_header

Can you believe that we are almost at the end of July!!  Where is this year going!! I’m still waiting for winter to arrive, here in Queensland.  It was 28 degrees yesterday and I had on my t-shirt and shorts!!  It’s a bit cooler today but still feels like Autumn.

This week we are back casing the Everyday Occasions section of the 2016-2017 Annual catalogue from pages 66-91.

There are so many gorgeous cards to case!!  I love the Layering Love stamp set although I haven’t got it yet.  I was inspired by the card featuring this set on the top right of the picture.

I decided to use the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set for my card and I didn’t feel it was quite appropriate to make a shaker card like the sample.  I embossed the main card with the Sparkle embossing folder in Soft Sky cardstock, then cut out a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals framelits in So Saffron and then attached it to the front of the card.  I then cut out the oval on both layers.  I then stamped the sentiment in Soft Sky on a separate piece of cardstock and attached it from behind.  That way, I could make sure it was centred nicely!!

I then punched a few little flowers and leaves using the Blossom Builder punch and scrunched them up a bit to give some texture and attached them with glue dots.  And of course, there are a few of the teeny tiny pearls in the centre of the flowers.

I hope you like my card today!!  Please leave me a comment and let me know!!  Next on the hop is the lovely Kelly.
