What a pretty bauble

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 stampinwithrebecca@yahoo.com.au to arrange a date.

Happy Stamping!!

Can you smell the roses?

Well, not really, it’s too early for roses to be blooming but I’ve made some pretty ones today!!

As you may have noticed, I like using the new Blendabilities. Okay, so I LOVE using the new blendabilities!!! I got the rest of the colours when they became available (cos I NEED them all, you know!!) and I wanted to have a play with them.

My card today is loosely based on this one by Artistic Design by Rachel, which I found on Pinterest. I liked the way she had coloured the rose by not colouring right to the edge.

As I wanted to try a few colours, I made a set of cards using the Sweetbriar Rose stamp. Isn’t it pretty?

Here is the Melon Mambo blendies. It’s a very bright pink.

And last but not least, Rich Razzleberry.

I’m really happy with how these turned out. I don’t consider myself to be very arty, so I love how these pens make it look like I am!!

And I’ll just pause to say that I love the new Venetian Crochet Trim!! Is it pretty or what!!

Please let me know what you think!!!

I love to colour in!!

When my sister and I were young, we used to love colouring a book mum had, which had lots of quilt patterns in it. You were meant to use the book to see how your quilt would turn out in the colours you had chosen. We copied all the pages in the book so we could still keep the original and would end up with lots of different “quilts” in paper.

So now I can continue to colour in with my new Blendabilities pens. I love these pens, although it does take a bit of getting used to the blending part of it. But I’m getting better each time I use them.

I wanted to have a play yesterday with my Blendies, but didn’t want to spend ages colouring in the Blended Bloom stamp. It seems that I actually don’t have a lot of stamps suitable for colouring in (don’t worry, I’ve got it under control in my first order from the new catty!!) but I did find the Flower Shop stamp set which has a good flower for colouring.

Well what to do with it? I love a good sketch, so I headed off to Mojo Monday to check out their latest sketch. (You can check it their post here)

So their sketch is Tall and Skinny this week but I didn’t really want to do that. I also used my colour coach for a colour challenge and I went with Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow.

So here is the sketch.


And here’s my interpretation. You can’t really tell from the picture but I coloured the rhinestone with the Coastal Cabana bel

So what do you think? I’m impressed!!!
