There is yet another reason to be excited this month. If you like the Papillion Potpourri stamp set, you can now bundle it with the Bitty Butterfly punch and save 15%.

I want to share a gorgeous card that we did at last month’s stamp club. I wanted to show the girls the new Wildflower Meadow embossing folder and the matching Wildflower Meadow stamp set. I found this lovely card on Pinterest (is there any other place to look!!) by Rachel Tessman. I pretty much cased the whole card as I really liked it.

I also love the paper doilies. Are they not the best thing since sliced bread!! I also got to use my new oval framelits.

30 June 2013 – Last day

Yes, it’s the last day of the 2012/2013 Stampin’ Up! catalogue.

I’ve have had so many favourites from this catalogue which I’m sad to see the end of. One of my favourite Designer Series Papers is Twitterpated. Such a gorgeous DSP!!

Now whilst this stamp set (One in a Million) is still carrying onto the new Catalogue, I thought I would share one last card from the 2012/2013 catalogue.

I made this card recently for a friend who had a baby girl recently. It was quick and easy to make which is nice to do occasionally.

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!

 Stamp Set: Daydream Medallions, Blue Ribbon

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.

 

29 August 2012 – Sneak Peak 3

As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I have access to a demonstrator only forum which links all demos from around the world, Stampin Connection.  It has a great gallery of images for inspiration.  The first card that I am sharing today is by Melissa Stout, The Stamp Doc.  Check out her website here for a video on how she made this cute card.

This card is using the Festival of Prints DSP from the new Seasonal Catalogue.  This pack gives you 48 sheets of gorgeous papers that are 11.4 cm x 16.5 cm.  I think this is the first time that I have used the pennant part of the Perfect Pennants die!!

Ink:  Early Espresso

Paper:  Festival of Prints DSP, Early Espresso , Very Vanilla, Old Olive

Accessories:  Big Shot, Holiday Collection framelits, Silver Glimmer paper, rhinestones, Perfect Pennants Bigz Die, Dotted Scallop ribbon border punch, Scallop trim border punch and scallop edge border punch.

This card is from fellow Aussie demo, Ellen Woodbridge.  It uses the Papaya Collage stamp set from the New Catalogue.  You can see what I mean about needing the framelits for banners!!  Never mind, it’s the thought that counts, right?

Stamp Set:  Loving Thoughts, Papaya Collage

Ink:  Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit

Paper:  Whisper White

Accessories:  Pearls, Organza Ribbon

19 March 2012 – Journal

Hi everyone!!

I didn’t realise it had been so long since I last posted here.  I’ve been meaning to but I haven’t made much new stuff lately.

This weekend I went to the Hillsong Colour Conference in Sydney with my sister and friends.  We had a great time and I learnt a lot from the word of God with inspring speakers Beth Moore and Priscilla Shirer.  I made all the girls a journal so that they could take notes during the sessions.

I used a journal from a $2 shop and covered them with the Berry Blossoms DSP.  I love the glimmer paper and the Perfect Pennants die, so I had to combine the two!!

Here’s a close up of the lower portion.

Stamp Set:  Broadsheet Alphabet

Ink:  Calypso Coral

Accessories:  Big Shot, Perfect Pennants Die, Silver glimmer paper, 1 3/4″  circle punch, 1 3/8″ circle punch, 1 1/4″ circle punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, scallop edge border punch

17 September 2011 – New Punch

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!!
