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!!
Stamp Sets: Stippled Blossoms, Word Play
Ink: Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red.
Paper: Whisper White
Accessories: Big Shot, labels collection framelits, Lacy brocade embossing folder

Can you believe that it’s almost time to start planning for Christmas!! I was asked at work recently to think about what leave I wanted to take over Christmas. It’s too early to think about yet!!!!!
Stampin’ Up! have a great promotion for the month of October. You can purchase the stamp set – Stitched Stockings and the matching punch – early before the next mini catalogue is released or you can earn it for free when you host a workshop and have over $450 in sales. How exciting is that!!!
Seeing as I am in denial about Christmas coming so quickly, here’s a card that I made that I cased from here for a stamping friend who had a baby recently.
Stamp Set: Stitched Stockings, Word Play
Ink: Bashful Blue
Paper: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Watercolour paper, Crumb Cake (Mum hates this colour!!)
Accessories: Stocking tag punch, Designer Frames embossing folder, Square Lattice embossing folder, 1/4″ Whisper White grosgrain ribbon, Victoria Crochet Trim, Paper Piercer, Tombow multi purpose glue.
I’ve been trying to post more regularly but sometimes life just gets in the way!!! Never mind, here’s a card that I have made as part of a swap with my team, Eureka Stampers. One of the great benefits about being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is being a part of a team and learning and sharing with fellow demonstrators. One of the ways we do this, is by swapping cards. You make, say 6 card fronts, and then post them to 5 demonstrators, keeping one for yourself. Then you end up with 6 gorgeous card fronts to get inspiration from!!!
If you’re interested in becoming a demonstrator, and enjoying the wonderful benefits, please contact me. If you join prior to the end of March (and Sale-a-bration), you will be able to choose another stamp set from the main catalogue as part of your starter kit for free!! How great is that!!!
This month’s theme for our swap is Male cards which I always find a bit of a challenge. I’m currently getting “happy” mail every day and it’s great to see different ideas!!. Here’s my card. I used a sketch from Utah Divas International for inspiration.
Stamp Sets: Word Play, Hodgepodge Hardware
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand
Paper: Blueberry Crisp DSP, Not Quite Navy, Pacific Point, Sahara Sand
Accessories: 1 3/4″ circle punch, Bitty Buttons
Here’s all my swaps!!! I don’t enjoy making lots of the same card but I can do 10!!
I meant to post earlier today but my niece, Leah, had to have emergency surgery today to have her appendix out so I went to visit her in Toowoomba. She’s doing much better now but the doctor said it was pretty bad. I made her a cute card this morning, inspired by Kerry Bunting. Looking at Kerry’s blog, I think she likes the owl punch!!! It is pretty cute!!!

Paper: Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Brights DSP pattern stack
Ink: Melon Mambo
