12 April 2013 – Pretty flowers for all!!

I realised recently that I didn’t have any good flower stamps in my collection. I had been seeing a few cards using Stippled Blossoms which were very pretty and decided that this is the one for me!!

I was inspired by fellow Aussie demonstrator, Leonie Schroder’s card here. Isn’t this a gorgeous card!! I needed to make a card for a work colleague who is leaving today, so I turned it on it’s side and used the Go Forth stamp from the Word Play stamp set. This was a really easy card to make with only a little bit of fussy cutting around the flowers.

I shared this card on a demonstrator only facebook group that I am on, and I inspired Juliette Hendry (here) to make it as well!!

17 March 2013 – It’s a Pool Party!!

I have recently rediscovered the colour, Pool Party. It goes so nicely with More Amore Specialty DSP in the current seasonal catalogue.

I wanted to use my new Hearts a Flutter framelits as who doesn’t love a good banner!! I was inspired by Andi Potler on Splitcoast Stampers, here.

I made a few changes and I used the new ovals framelits and the gorgeous Two-tone ribbon. Seeing as it was coming up to Valentine’s Day when I made this card, I used a stamp from Word Play stamp set. And of course, who can resist the opportunity to use the honeycomb embossing folder! Not me!!

love club

We did this card at stamp club and I had a few kits left over, so I made them up again but I used the O’Hello stamp set from the seasonal catalogue so I could use it for a birthday card as well!! I hope you like it.

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.
