G’Day Stampers.
Thanks so much for joining me today.  I am participating for the first time in the Stamping Dreams Blog Hop for September.  The theme this month is “Something Different”.  It could be a fun fold, a shaker card, a spin card or even a technique.

I decided to go with Scrapbooking & share one of my pages we created last week in our Memories & More Scrapbooking Class.  We used the “Pick a Pattern” DSP along with the “Pattern Pieces”,Blender Pens, Stampin’ Write Markers & more to create our page. Pattern Pieces1 (2)

The page could be used for a boy or girl.  In this case, my page is going down to my niece for her son.  Once my page/s have been used for a class I post them off to her to add to her albums.  I have been doing this for some time now, she enjoys getting the parcel in the post & I enjoy creating them.

Sometimes, I will add photos & journaling to page, other times she adds her photos & journaling.  I think the surprise is not knowing what she will receive in the mail but the albums are slowing growing.

If you click on the link below you will be able to download a free tutorial which includes the product used to create the page plus measurements (metric & imperial).

Thank you so much for stopping by & checking out my project today.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Kylie’s International Highlights

Thank you once again to everyone who voted for me last month.  I got to be part of the Top Ten Winners Blog Hop.  If you didn’t catch the amazing creations, please check them out.  Where does the time go?  In saying that it is that time again where I am once again playing along with Kylie’s International Blog Highlights.

This month the theme is “Sympathy“.  It is not something we like to create but as I am down a little on this type of card, I have been creating a few for an upcoming event, so perfect timing.  The only problem was which one to showcase for this hop?

Not sure of what is Kylie’s International Highlights?   It is where Demonstrators from all around the world take part in a monthly Blog Highlight.  It’s a great way to get to know other Demonstrators & see projects using current Stampin’ Up!® product.

What is so different about this Blog Highlight?  YOU get to vote for your top 5 favourites.  The top ten will then get to take part in an international blog hop with Kylie & other Vote for Me Heretalented successful demonstrators.

What do I do?  All you have to do is click on the “Vote for Me” photo at the side or head on over to Kylie’s Blog, click on the heart in the top right hand side of the picture.  I’m #3!

For my card today I’ve used the gorgeous new “Painted Harvest” Stamp Set from the 2017Painted-Harvest---Sympathy- Holiday Catalogue.  Perfect for all occasions.  I’m not sure if you can get pink sunflowers but I like the colours – Powder Pink & Flirty Flamingo.  The leaves are Pear Pizzazz, while the sentiment is in Chocolate Chip.

I’ve teamed the inks up with Chocolate Chip, Powder Pink & Whisper White CS.  The large piece of Whisper white has been embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic TIEF.

Birthday Blossoms

Birthday-Blossoms---Close-U

A couple of days ago I shared with you the card we created in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class.  Well, today I thought I would share with you another card I created a few weeks ago with the same fold but using the Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set.

I got my inspiration for the card from Pinterest which had been created by Michelle Birthday-Blossoms---InsideLast.  Thank you Michelle for your inspiration!  I loved the clean lines of her card, along with the touches of pink.

To colour my flowers, I sponged Power Pink Ink over the top with a Stamping Sponge before blending Flirty Flamingo with a Blender Pen beginning from the inner petals & out towards the outer petals.  It picks up the colour yet still keeping them soft.  I added touches of Clear Wink of Stella to bring the Flirty Flamingo out a little more.

Holly Berry Christmas…

… meets “Christmas in the Making” which is on Page 16 of the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  I love it when I can get multiple uses from my stamps.

I actually love the “Feeling of Christmas” on the same page but left it too late for my order Holly-Berry-Happiness---Insto arrive in time for the class, so I set about trying to recreate the card on Page 17 of the Catalogue using one of my sets in my stash.  I think I did it, although a little different, but different is good!

My card today is one of the 2 we created in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class.  I am happy to say the ladies loved it!

The Crumb Cake CS has been embossed with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF while the wreath has been coloured & blended with Old Olive Ink & my Blender Pen.

Beachy Little Birthday

Beachy-Little-Christmas---C

G’Day Stampers,

I am trying to get back into the swing of things but I am finding it hard to do.  Once you get out of a routine, it is sometimes very had to get back into it.

My card today is one we created last Friday in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class.  The ladies loved how you could use it for all occasions.  It has been created using the lovely little “Beachy Little Christmas” set from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  I fact, I will be honest & say this is my favourite set in the catalogue.

I know the catalogue is jam packed with gorgeous new product, but this set screams “ME!”.  It is a wonder you didn’t hear me yelling from where you live as I was so happy to see something like this. Thank you Stampin’ Up!September

Wood Words – Thank You

Wood-Words---Close-Up1

I created a couple of Thank You Cards last week for my customers of which most have already been posted (forgot to take photos) but I do have a couple that I will use for the remainder of September.  I’ve used the Wood Words Stamp Set.

Wood-Words---Lemon-Lime-TwiThey were all created with the 2017-2019 In Colours & the lovely fantastic Note Cards & Envelopes – Whisper White, Page 195 of the Annual Catalogue.  Along with the In Colours I also used Sahara Sand which worked perfectly with the colours.  I am loving these for quick & simple cards.

The first lot of cards sent out were stamped directly onto the Note Card itself while the next lot of cards had a layer of contrasting In Colour CS.  My samples today have Lemon Lime Twist & Berry Burst.

All I did was randomly stamp my images in Sahara Sand & Lemon Lime Twist onto a piece of Whisper White CS.  The sentiment is from the same set & stamped direct onto the Card in Lemon Lime Twist.  I then layered it onto a piece of Lemon Lime Twist CS beforeWood-Words---Berry-Burst adhering to the Note Card.

My 2nd card I am showing you is the Berry Burst one which was created exactly the same way.

I repeated the same process for the other cards but substituting the In-Colours each time.

I’m not too sure which one is my favourite as I am loving these In-Colours.  Which is your favourite?

Until next time, Happy Stampin!

Painted Harvest Suite

Painted-Harvesta---Close-Up

I am sharing with you today one of the cards we will be creating in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class.  We would love for you to come along & create with us.

I saw this fold over on Pinterest a little while ago but now of course I am unable to find the link, but I managed to do one better & actually found the blog.  Thank you so much Jeanie for your inspiration even though it was one created in error, I loved that it was so different!

I’ve used the lovely Painted Harvest Suite to create our card.  The Suite includes the Painted Harvest Stamp Set, Leaf Punch which can be purchased as a Bundle & the Painted Autumn DSP.  It took me a little time to actually purchase this set, but I must tell you, it is so much fun playing with it.  I especially love the fact that it gives you a gorgeous watercolur look to all your creations.

Tips to help you with the 2-Step Stampin’ set –Painted-Harvesta---Fancy-Fo

  1. Stamp the centre first.  This helps to centre your flower
  2. Stamp the larger flower next but in a lighter contrasting ink.  This flower will look like it may be missing part of the stamp, but this is ok
  3. Stamp the smaller flower 2nd & in a darker contrasting ink.  You will be amazed at how the flower will come together
  4. For more definition, stamp the larger flower once again in the same colour ink as the first time.  Your flower will just about pop off your Card

I do hope the ladies are going to love creating this card.

Kylie’s International Top Ten August Winners Blog Hop

Top 10 Winners

Welcome to the Top Ten Winners Blog Hop!   Do you remember my post from a couple of weeks ago asking for you to vote?  Check it out by clicking on “Teacher’s Gifts”.  Thank you to every one of you who took the time to vote – it worked!  Because of your votes, myself & other lucky talented Demonstrators get to hop along with Kylie (Australia’s #1 Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator).   I feel very honoured to be among this group, so thank you once again!

You are visiting from Corinne Blake who is from the USA.  I do hope you enjoyed Connie’s lovely creation.

Last month the theme was Teacher’s Gifts.  Well, for this blog hope, it is the same themeDelightful-Daisy-Crate---Em but creating a new item.  I did started out with butterflies in my head but now that I’ve finished it, they do look like funny sort of butterflies.  Yep, I picked up the wrong item, but never mind, I am happy with the project & more than happy with the colours.

To create my crate, I die cut a piece of the Thick Whisper White CS using the Wood Crate FramelitWood Crate Framelit As I wanted to try something different with my create, I mixed a small drop of Bermuda Bay Refill into a dab of Embossing Paste, placed  one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks over top & spread the Paste over the crate shapes prior to putting it together.   I repeated the same process onto a piece of Whisper White CS which I was going to be using for my card.

Delightful-Daisy---FlowerThe flower was created by punching 2 daisies from a piece of Whisper White CS with the Daisy Punch, sponged with a Sponge Dauber with Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie & then Daffodil Delight on both shapes prior to layering onto each other.  The centre was created by sponging a piece of scrap Whisper White CS using the same process, stamping the centre from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set, punching with the 1/2″ Circle Punch & adhering to the centre.  To complete my flower, I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the middle.

The leaves were stamped onto a scrap piece of Whisper white CS, first with Lemon Lime Twist, then with Old Olive, punched with the Leaf Punch, scored down the middle to give them dimensional before adhering to the flowers.  They are from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set.  Sorry the photo doesn’t really do them justice.

I placed 2 Ferrero Rochers into a Cello Bag, stamped the sentiment from Wood Words Stamp Set onto scrap Whisper White CS in Bermuda Bay, die cut using the Wood Crate Framelits & tied it to the Cello Delightful-Daisy---EmbossinBag with Whisper White Baker’s Twine (retired).  I finished the bag off by tying a small bow from the Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon

For my card, I created another flower using the above steps, layered the embossed Card onto a piece of Daffodil Delight CS & then to the Base Card – Whisper White.  The leaves were created the same way as the crate.

I’m pretty happy with the end result even though the flowers were meant to be butterflies.  A happy mistake in this instance.

Next up is Karen……

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Daisy Crate

G’Day Stampers,

Until I am back into the swing of things I am keeping today’s post very short but I am sharing with you a couple of gifts I created using the “Wood Crate” Framelits, Page 212 of the 2017 Annual Catalogue.

I did these for a Expo I attended a couple of weeks ago & much to my surprise they proved very popular, especially to the kids.  I say this because I don’t usually do this sort of thing but I do think they were such a hit because they may have been a little different.

I stamped the Hardwood Background Stamp onto a piece of Night of Navy CS in Night of Navy Ink & die cut it with the Wood Crate Frameit by running the Big Shot.

I stamped 2 daisy images onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Daffodil Delight, punched with the corresponding Daisy Punch, adhered together & then adhered to the front of the crate.

I embellished the middle with a Gold Faceted Gem.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
