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 email@example.com to arrange a date.

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.
And here’s a closer look at the mo.
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!!

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.
Here’s a close up of the banner.
Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Paper: Winter Frost Specialty DSP, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White

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.
Stamp Set: Petite Pairs
Paper: Festival of Prints DSP stack, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Decorative label punch, Modern label punch, silver glimmer paper.
Here’s the last card that we will be making today. I cased this one from here. This card looks much nicer in the flesh. I’ve glittered the flower in the middle (and myself and the desk!!) using Dazzling Diamonds.

Here’s a card that I’ve made for one of the February birthdays. I recently got the Medallion stamp after umming and ahhing for quite a while but I think I’m in love with it now!! I cased it from here. I added a bit of glitter paper as you always need a bit of bling!!

I have recently purchased the new Doily Triple Layer punch and I just love it!! I can’t wait to show it to my stamp club girls!!
I also got the new seam binding ribbon and it is lovely to use. So easy to tie into a bow.
I cased this card from Debra on Splitcoast Stampers and just changed the colours to suit what I had. Thanks also to the Colour Coach for helping with the colours, gotta love it!
A bit fiddly, but certainly has the wow factor!!
