10 July 2013 – Going Fruity!!

Well the new catalogue has been out for a week now and it is full of lots of fabulous new stamp sets, designer series paper and new colours!!

I love the names of the new in colours, especially Crisp Cantaloupe. I wanted to show case the new in colours at my catalogue launch last weekend, so I did a bit of stalking on Pinterest!! I found this lovely card by Marisa Gunn, which also highlighted the Soho Subway DSP.

I was lucky enough to receive the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set at Convention in May, which is great for doing splotches that look even. I don’t know about you but sometimes random splotches just don’t work for me!! I also used the Label Love Stamp set which matches the new Artisan label punch. (Love matching punches!!)

I also wanted to share this card that I found on Pinterest here. It reminded me of the Cathedral Window quilt that my mum made years ago. This was a fun card to make. I punched 9 1 1/4″ circles and did a card board 1″ square punch which I used as a template for folding up the edges.

I used the new Smoky Slate ink for the sentiments which are from the Happy Day stamp set.

25 April 2013 – Hellooooo, Poppet!!

Helloooo, Poppets!!!! Or rather Hello, Doily!! I love this doily stamp! I have seen so many lovely cards made with it!

I did this card at a new class that I’ve started close to home to show different uses for embossing.

We used the glossy card stock and embossing a doily using the versamark ink and white embossing powder. We then used a sponge dauber and rubbed it over the whole piece of card. A quick wipe off over the white embossing and voila!, awesomeness!!

3 November 2012 – Another Birthday

Happy Birthday to Roz!

I’ve been wanting to use the Daydream Medallion stamp set and the matching Floral Frames framelits since I got them when the new catalogue came out.  I finally found a great card (where else but Pinterest!!) here.

I used the Comfort Cafe DSP, which I really like.  I used two in-colours – Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit, which also gave me the opportunity to use some of the free ribbon I got in October.  (love freebies!!)

Have I mentioned before that I love framelits!!  Maybe once or twice!!

Enjoy!

Ink:  Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse

Paper:  Comfort Cafe DSP, Midnight Muse, Very Vanilla

Accessories:  Big Shot, Floral Frames framelits, 1 1/4″ circle punch, Scallop trim border punch, Midnight Muse striped ribbon.

 

28 April 2012 – April Stamp Club

Last weekend we had stamp club, so I thought I would share our cards with you.  I focused on some of the new stamp sets and fabulous new tools available in the latest Autumn Winter mini catalogue.

This first one focuses on the Adorning Accents edgelits and the matching embossing folder, including the co-ordinating stamp set, Bordering on Romance.  Once you get the hang of the edgelits, they are very easy to use and look absolutely fabulous!! I did case this one but I can’t find where.

Stamps:  Bordering on Romance, Party Time

Ink:  Blushing Bride, Rose Red, Staz on Black, Pear Pizzazz

Paper:  Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White

Accessories:  Adorning Accents Edgelits, Big Shot, Adorning Accents Embossing folder, Basic Pearls, blender pens, organza white ribbon

The next card is cased from here.  I used it as my inspiration but I used different colours and different stamps.  I made the rosette using the new Simply Scored which is great.  It makes making rosette’s so easy!!

 Stamp Sets:  Word Play

Ink:  Versamark

Paper:  Beau Chateau DSP, Soft Suede, Pink Pirouette, Marina Mist

Accessories:  Lace Ribbon Border punch, 1 3/4″ scallop circle punch, 1 1/4″ circle punch, Scallop Circle #2 die, Very Vanilla Seam binding ribbon, subtles buttons.

I had some issues with the single photo that I took, so the next card is in a group of three.  I couldn’t decide on which colour combination to go with, so I had a couple of attempts.  I went with the card in the middle, using the gorgeous new Twitterpated DSP.  Love it!!  I also used the new Tea Shoppe stamp set which is so cute!  I did case this card but again, can’t find the link!!

Stamp Set:  Tea Shoppe

Ink:  Riding Hood Red,  Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze

Paper:  Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Twitterpated DSP

Accessories:  Pear Pizzazz pleated satin ribbon, Adorning Accents edgelits, 1 1/4″ square punch.
