It’s a Panda Party!

I had a great Easter weekend at Stanthorpe celebrating my niece’s 18th birthday.  As I mentioned on a previous post, I made her cake.

It has four layers of red velvet cake with buttercream icing and a white chocolate ganache for the drip.  My lovely friend Emma from Acacia Grey Studio created the stunning topper for me.  Check out her Facebook page, here.

I’m getting ready to start my first shift as a volunteer at the Commonwealth Games today.  I’m excited but a bit nervous too!!

I’ve had a bit of time to play in the craft room since I got back home on Sunday so I decided to have a go at Bronwyn Eastley’s super cute tutorial for the Party Panda, Double Pop Up, Gate Fold, Box card!  Check out her post about it here.

I didn’t have all the die and stamp sets needed to create this stunning card, but I was able to substitute from my stash!

I apparently don’t have any dies that have grass so I used the retired scissors that I still have.

This is such a cute card!  The tutorial is relatively easy to follow as long as you read each step as you go.

If you love this card as much as I do, you can purchase the tutorial here.

I hope this card brought a smile to your face!!

Can you guess the castle?

When Bronwyn released her latest tutorial yesterday, I knew straight away what I could make!!

In November, I am heading to Orlando, Florida to attend the 30th Anniversary Stampin’ Up! Onstage event.  Flights and accommodation are booked so I can’t wait!!

Of course, one of the things I am most excited to be doing is to be going to Disneyworld!!  So my castle had to be the Cinderella Castle!!

As always, Bronwyn has created a clear and easy to follow tutorial, which you can purchase here.  After doing a search of what the Cinderella Castle looks like, I made a few tweaks to the design but it’s pretty close to the original.

Make sure you have a look at who is peaking through the windows!

I probably should have put some flags on the top but it’s been such a hot day, that my mojo had melted!!  I think I’ll add some next time I hit the craft room.

I’m really happy with how it turned out!!  And it’s only 248 days until I leave for Orlando!  Bring it on!!

Happy Stamping

Spring Planter

Well, it’s not Spring here at the moment, (in fact, this been a really hot, humid summer) but you can always appreciate pretty flowers!

I love Bronwyn’s Spring Planter Box Card with it’s pretty array of flowers.

Addinktive Design team button - December 2017

I decided to use the Wood Textures DSP stack for the planter box part.  I then used the Petals & More thinlits for the leaves.  I then used the May Flowers framelits and the matching Falling Flowers stamp set.  I used the Subtles collection cardstock to create a pretty bunch.  These colours look so lovely together.

add-10-c

add10a

I made a slight mistake in that I got stuck into attaching the flowers and then realised that I had used the bottom of the planter so the pieces to attach the flowers are lower down.  I had used fast fuse so there was no undoing!  That stuff sticks well!

This tutorial is great to follow, and so easy to understand.  Just click here to purchase it today.

These flowers are perfect for me as my pussy cats like to eat any flowers that come into the house!

I hope you like my planter box!  Please leave me a comment and let me know.

Congrats on your baby!

I wanted to try out another one of Bronwyn Eastley’s fabulous tutorials as they are fabulous and so easy to follow.  You can check them all out here.

I love the Baby Crib Z Fold card, so I decided to have a play with it using current products.

Once I had decided on the card, I had a look through my stamp sets only to find that I only have a few baby sets!  Crisis!!  But then I realised that the new Amazing Congratulations stamp set from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue does have baby sentiments so I was excited to use it.  I wanted to use the Naturally Eclectic DSP as it’s so pretty and perfect for a baby card.

The congratulations stamp is quite large but it just fits across the card.  I used Peekaboo Peach and Pumpkin Pie ink to create the shades and then I hand cut the word out.  Nothing like a bit of fussy cutting!

I found the Mermaid

I just love playing with Bronwyn Eastley’s tutorials for 3d cards!  This week I am using the Magical Day Double Z Fold Card.  You can check out Bronwyn’s tutorial, here.

Addinktive Design team button - December 2017I love the Myths and Magic Specialty DSP.  Every page is sparkly!  It’s also slightly thicker card stock so it’s good for a 3d card as it’s nice and sturdy.

My niece is turning 18 shortly so I thought this would be a great card for her.  I went with the Mermaid page of the DSP and fussy cut them out.  I also did a few of the shells and seahorses.

I used the SAB Celebrate You thinlits for the sentiment and layered it with Melon Mambo and Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.

I used the Petals and More thinlits to create the seaweed.  I also cut a couple of the flowers from the Eclectic Layers thinlits to create the look of coral.

If you would like to purchase the tutorial to create this card, make sure you check out Bronwyn’s store here.

Don’t forget you can earn the Celebrate You thinlits for free when you place an order on my online store.

Where’s the Mermaid?

Well it’s been a little while but I’m back creating with the AddInktive Design Team!   Bronwyn has been busy creating lots of fabulous tutorial’s and we shall be seeing many more this year as she has retired from her “real” job and will be focusing on her SU business.  (I wish I could too!!, Jealous much!!)

Addinktive Design team button - December 2017

So I wanted to have a play with the new Mermaid Shaker Box card that Bronwyn has created.  Check it out here.

I don’t have the Myths and Magic suite so I went through my 2018 Occasions catalogue to see what I could use instead.  I decided to use the Flying Home stamp set which I received for free at Centerstage (a leadership event) at Onstage in November.

I recently purchased the Naturally Eclectic card overlays which are in the 2017-2018 Annual catalogue.  I had not noticed these until now and they are lovely!!  They are 4″ x 6″ acetate overlays in white and gold.

I used the new Gold Glitter flakes as part of my shaker card.  Now make sure that you seal it up firmly otherwise those flakes can go everywhere!!  (Just ask me how I know!!)

I stamped the images from the Flying Home stamp set onto the Thick Whisper White card stock so that it was a bit firmer when I fussy cut it out.  I coloured it in with the watercolour pencils and blender pen.

add-7a

Oh and I used the Naturally Eclectic DSP as well.

add-7b

The sentiment comes from the Bird Banter stamp set and I used the Classic Label punch (but re-punched the ends so that I had a banner end).

If you would like to make this gorgeous box card, you can purchase the tutorial from Bronwyn, here.

I’d love to hear what you think of this card.  Oh and in case you were worried how this fits into an envelope, it does fold flat and fits into a standard size envie.

Kitty Slider card

I’m back with another tutorial from Bronwyn Eastley, addINKtive Designs.

This week, I decided to use the This Little Piggy Slider card tutorial, which you can purchase here.

This is such a cute card but I don’t have the Piggy stamp set.  I know it’s cute, but I don’t really need it!  So I had a browse through my stamp sets and I went with the Pretty Kitty stamp set to keep in with the animal theme.  I love all the kitties in this set but I just kept it to two.

To create the grass, I stamped my piece of cardstock in Pear Pizzazz using the Watercolor Wash stamp set to create some texture.  I also punched the ticket tear border punch across the top.  I wanted to put some texture across the back piece so I cut out the laurel from the Lovely Laurel thinlits.  I just trimmed them down to fit the card.

Then the fun part of stamping the kitties and colouring them in.  I coloured the bodies and the pot with my aqua painter but I did the flowers and cheeks with markers just to make the colours stand out a bit more.   Then the extra fun part of fussy cutting was next!!  You know how much I love doing that!!! Yeah, no.

I used the Birthday banner stamp set and the matching Bunch of banner framelits for the sentiment and I added some more flowers from the Lovely Friends stamp set and the matching Lovely Laurel thinlits.

Of course, then the sky needed some clouds, and I knew I had a set with some.  I found the Lift Me Up stamp set had the perfect clouds so a quick stamp in Soft Sky and it’s all done.

The kitties do move across the card although the flower in the middle (which is to hide the join in the flowers) stops them going the whole way across.

This was a fun card to make and Bronwyn’s instructions make it so easy!!  Thanks, Bron!
