It’s an Extravaganza!


My fabulously talented friend, Bronwyn, is running an online Christmas Class Extravaganza at the moment and I am just loving it!!

As you know, I love fancy fold cards and one of our first projects is an Easel card.  I’ve been able to ink up my new Buffalo Check stamp.  Don’t you just love it!  Such a versatile stamp.

I’ve gone with Lovely Lipstick, Call Me Clover and Whisper White as my colours.  I love traditional Christmas colours!


I’ve used the Detailed Lace Thinlits and did it on both sides of the strip of buffalo check.  Hasn’t it come up pretty!!  My sentiments are from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set.


Make sure you check out all the information about the Online Christmas Extravangza here.

Happy Stamping!

It’s a Pocket card

Addinktive Design team button - December 2017

As you know, I’m a member of Bronwyn Eastley’s Design Team.  I was looking for a project to make for my last stamp class, so I turned to Bronwyn’s tutorials for inspiration! All the girls have been making amazing Pocket Card’s using Jackie’s Petal Palette Pocket Card template.

I used the Floral Frames bundle as my inspiration and here’s my colour combo.

I followed Jackie’s tutorial fairly closely.  I love the Foliage Frame framelits and the floral circle is gorgeous!   I used the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon which added a nice little bit of bling to the card!


And for someone who rarely decorates the inside of cards (I know, I should!) I did decorate the inside card.


The ladies in my class loved this card!  It was easy to do, and looks amazing!

Botanical Bliss U Fold Card


Addinktive Design team button - December 2017

One of the things I love about Bronwyn’s tutorial’s at Addinktive Designs, is that they are great to use at my classes!!  I wanted to show case the gorgeous Botanical Tags thinlits to my stamp class ladies and Bronwyn’s Botanical Bridge and U-Fold card tutorial is perfect!

I did all the cutting and scoring prior to the class so it wouldn’t take too long.  I had a big class of 14 so I did do the big shot work as well.  That was a fun hour of my life!!

I used the lovely Share What You Love Specialty DSP and co-ordinating cardstock in Blackberry Bliss and Pear Pizzazz.




I like to make about 3 samples when the group is that large so that everyone can see how the card is meant to look.  I think it looks lovely with each paper!  I can’t decide which one is my favourite!

I also used my stamparatus to stamp the sentiments on each piece.  Gee, it is quickly becoming my favourite tool!  It makes life so much easier in a class as everyone gets a great result when stamping.

You can certainly add the stamparatus and the Botanical Bliss bundle to your starter kit when you take advantage of this month’s amazing special to become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  You can choose up to $235 worth of stamping products for only $169 and received 10 ink pads from a colour family of your choice worth $117.   That’s $352 worth of product for only $169.  If you would like to take advantage of this offer, click on the image.

I’ve also used one of the fabulous tutorials by Bronwyn Eastley, which you can purchase here.  It’s the Tri-Fold Window Card which is such a wow card!

I used the Layered oval Framelits to cut out the centres of the card.  And have you noticed the colour of the cardstock!!  Yes, it’s Mint Macaron making a come back in the Colour Revamp!!  I love this colour and am so glad to be able to play with it again. Now when I created my card, I didn’t have the mint macaron ink pad so I just used a versa mark ink pad to create a tone on tone look.   Oh and check out the colour of my ink, it’s the new Grapefruit Grove!

And isn’t the Share What you Love Specialty DSP just beautiful!  There are 4 sheets of each of pattern of the DSP and many of them have a pearly finish to them.  So pretty!!

I also added half a pearlized doily and the new Rich Razzleberry velvet ribbon.  Love velvet ribbons!



Next up is my friend, Julia. I can’t wait to see what she has created!
