What a pretty bauble

I don’t know about you but I love a pretty, colourful, sparkly bauble on my Christmas tree.  And if I could somehow make this stamped bauble into a real one, it would be on my tree in a flash!!  I’m speaking of the Christmas Bauble stamp from the Holiday catalogue, of course!!

I knew as soon as I saw this stamp that I needed to have it!!  It’s also great for colouring with Blendabilties (fancy that!!)

I found this great sketch at Mojo Monday and thought it would suit.

I used the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack as my inspiration for the colours.  I used Whisper White as the base cardstock and Garden Green as the next layer.  I used a piece of Gold Satin ribbon as a touch of luxury.  Then I got stuck into colouring with my blendies!!  Love, love!!!

To create the sentiment, I stamped the image from the Good Greetings stamp set and used the Modern label punch to punch it out.  To mat it, I used the Decorative label punch and cut it in half.

If you like the greeting stamp, you can earn this set for free by hosting a qualifying workshop up to 31 October.  Contact me at stampinwithrebecca@yahoo.com.au to arrange a date.

Happy Stamping!!

I love the mo, bro!!

I have to confess that I love the new moustache framelit and matching stamp set!! When I first saw it, I thought it was very cute but I didn’t need it. But I kept looking at it and finally decided to bite the bullet and get it. And at only $13.95 for the framelit, you can’t really go wrong!!

I thought it would make a great card for Father’s Day for stamp club so I did a quick search on Pinterest and found a great card by Rose Castillo here.

I only made a couple of changes by punching out the sentiment with the Word Window punch and mounting it on the Modern label punch. I love the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamps set as they all fit into the word window punch and there are lots to choose from. A couple of the ladies used the Happy Birthday stamp instead.

I hope you like it!! And I hope Dad and Pop don’t look here before Father’s Day!! I think I’m pretty safe!!

Happy Stamping

20 January 2014 – Oohh, I like the shiny paper!!!

Where is the year going!!! It seems to be flying past already!!

We had stamp club on the weekend and I wanted to share a project using the gorgeous Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. I really love this DSP and wanted to show how it could be used in a non-christmassy way. I had not used all the shimmery paper in the pack (shock, horror, I know!!), so I decided to use that one as the background.

I was inspired by Dani Dziama, here. I loved her card, especially with the doily.

I gave the girls a sneaky peak at a new product being featured in the Sale-a-bration catalogue, the mini banner punch!! Is that not the cutest punch you’ve ever seen!! I am hopeless at making the ends of banners even so this is perfect for me.

29 September 2012 – Festive Friday Challenge

I came across the Festive Friday Challenge at Nicole Derendorf’s blog and thought it was a nice, easy sketch that I could do.  I immediately thought of the Festival of Prints DSP stack in the Holiday catalogue.

It was hard to choose which paper to use, so I picked 5 different ones.  My next dilemma was finding a small stamp to fit into the Modern label punch.  Most of my small word stamps have retired but I managed to find one in the Petite Pairs stamp set which fitted nicely.  I matted it on the ends and then added a decorative label punch with the silver glimmer paper as it is Christmas after all and we need to have some bling!!  This would be a great card for mass production as it doesn’t take very long to put together.

I’d love it if you would leave a comment so that I know there’s someone having a look!

Here’s a close up of the bling.
