Day 12 – Animal Expedition

 

Animal-Expedition-1---CloseG’Day Stampers,

Sorry I missed yesterday – life just goes that way sometimes.

So, today I am sharing with you the 2nd card using the fun Animal Expedition DSP whichAnimal Expedition - 19.25 is part of the “Buy 3, Get 1 FREE” promotion.  There are only 3 days left to take advantage of this.

This suite is close to my heart as it brings back so many happy memories.  My Dad worked out of town during the week which meant he left Sunday arvos & would be home Friday night.

We would all “help” him to back his swag Sunday although looking back I think we were more of a hindrance than a help but he didn’t seem to mind.

Anyhow, usually when he arrived home on the Friday night, he would sometimes carefully place his ?moving” swag on the floor which meant there was something usually Animal-Expedition-1---Insidalive in it.  With excited anticipation we would gently unwrap it to find a joey wrapped up safe & sound fully aware that its mother had been killed.  Dad never went past a dead animal on the side of the road without checking for a pouch.   He still stops & checks to this day which means I now do the same!

Our yard was always full of orphaned joeys, lambs, birds, etc but my favourite was & still is the kangaroo.  Imagine my surprise when SU! brought out this fantastic Animal Expedition Suite!  I think it was just for me!

Anyhow, I decided to keep the card simple although I’ve used a few bright colours of Berry Burst & Lemon Lime Twist to create my card.  I’ve toned the colours down by adding a little Vellum over the top of the DSP.

G’Day & welcome to the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop where this month’s theme is New Annual Sneak Peek!  Who doesn’t love seeing sneak peeks & what is coming up in the new catalogue?  I know I do!

My inspiration came from a couple of sources.  One being a challenge that our FB Group has going as well as a sample in the new catalogue.  Mind you, it wasn’t planned that way.  It is just the way things pan out sometimes.

For my card I’ve used the Bubble Over Stamp Set along with the Bottles & Bubbles Bubble-Over-4---InsideFramelits which are both returning.  I’ve teamed it up with the 2018-2020 In Colour 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Oh how I love this DSP with all the lovely dots & stripes!  I’ve also used lots of lovely In Colours – Lemon Lime Twist, Grapefruit Grove, Blueberry Bushel & Berry Burst Inks.

I hope you have enjoyed my creation today & it has inspired you to create your own.

Love What You Do

Love-What-You-Do-2---Close-

G’Day Stampers,

I certainly hope all the mums in Australia had a lovely Mother’s Day yesterday.

Today’s card is one that I’ve cased from the Share What You Love Suite which is the Just Getting Started BundleOf course, I added my own spin on it but you could always add extras with what you have in your own stash.

This card & Bundle prove that you don’t have to have a lot of product to create pretty Love-what-You-Do-2---Insidecards.  Best thing about the Bundle is that the Love What You Do Stamp Set, Grapefruit Grove (new In Colour) & Old Olive Inks plus Very Vanilla Cardstock, Very Vanilla Note Cards (1 of my favourites) & even a Clear Block to get you started are all included.

Advantages of this Pre-Order include having one of the new In Colours early so that you can out the new style ink pad & new catalogue product early.  Who doesn’t love that?.

Although the products will be available once the new catalogue goes live, the Bundle will not!

By clicking on the link below you are able to download your free tutorial to create your own version

I have another card to share with you using the same Bundle so be sure to pop back in a few days.

Don’t forget when shopping online to use the new May Host Code.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Epic Celebration

Epic-Celebrations---Guitar-

G’Day Stampers,

Over the weekend I offered a free class to my customers as a thank you for their support during Sale-A-Bration.  It was a huge hit with the ladies loving the simple & easy cards.  I surprised them with a 3rd which they were stoked about.  In fact it was a very successful day with them taking advantage of the last weeks of Sale-A-Bration.  Yep, it ends 31 March.

For our class we used the Level 1 Epic Celebrations for 2 of the cards with today’s card for the boys.  I always like to show how versatile our stamp sets are by creating a coupleEpic-Celebrations---Inside- of cards using the same set.  In fact, I do this with all my classes.

I actually cased the card from my friend Kris but have changed it a little to suit what I wanted  Thanks for your inspiration Kris, loved your simple design.

Don’t forget you too, can earn both this stamp set for free when you spend $AUD90 while Sale-A-Bration is on.

When shopping Online, use the Host Code for March.

Stampin’ Blends are Here….

You've-Got-This-1---Close-U

By now you are probably aware that Stampin’ Blends are now available for everyone.  I have to say that I am loving them & so will you!

My card is one I sent off in the mail yesterday to thank a friend (one I went to school with & haven’t seen for many years) for a special service we attended a couple of days ago.  I do hope she likes it!

The card has actually been cased from Page 10I of the Annual Catalogue.  Mind you, it You've-Got-This-1---Insidedoesn’t look anything like the original but it was a good starting point as I wanted it to be happy & bright, plus I wanted to play with the Stampin’ Blends.

To create my card, I used the Light Calypso Coral to colour the flowers followed by the Dark Daffodil Delight & then the Light Daffodil Delight.  I’m loving how they turned out.  The leaves were created using the leaf image from Painted Harvest & punched with the coordinating Leaf Punch.  Both are available in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue & are available as a Bundle.

Although I have used a couple of items that have retired (easily replaced by current product) I’m very happy with my card today, but please let me know what you think.

If you click on the link above the card, you will be able to download a tutorial so that you can create your own.  It includes all the measurements (metric & imperial) along November-2017with a list of products.

When shopping Online, don’t forget to add in the Host Code – JW27ZGPY.  Check out the Clearance Rack while you are there.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

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 Bon 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 Bonnie 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.

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!

A Note for You…

Wood-Words---Close-Up

Heya Stampers,

I’m not sure if you have noticed I’ve been missing in action the past week but fingers crossed I will be back to normal for a week or so anyhow.  I do post to my FB Page if I am not posting here so be sure to check it out.

What have I been doing?  Invitations!  My nephew is getting married in Argentina next year & I have been playing with invitations for him.  I am almost finished the English side of things & then I have to start on the Spanish side of it all.  A very long process but one that I am more than happy with.

My cards today have been created using the lovely Wood Words Stamp Set & have been created from a couple of different designs from Pinterest.   I wanted something quick, easy, simple yet elegant.  I think I have achieved that but would love to know what you think?

I’ve stamped the floral image direct onto Whisper White CS in Berry Burst Ink – love this colour towards the top of the Card & then repeated it again for the bottom part of the Card.

I stamped “A Note for You” direct onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, adhered a piece of Powder Pink CS top & bottom before layering over the top of the stamped flowers & trimming the edges.

The whole piece was layered onto a piece of Fresh Fig CS & then to the Base Card – Whisper White.

The star image was stamped onto scrap Whisper White CS, punched with the 1″ Circle Punch & layered onto a piece of Powder Pink CS which has been punched with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch before being adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Daughter

Oh-So-Eclectic---close-up

Heya Stampers,

Today’s post is a very easy card using the “Oh So Eclectic” Stamp Set, which I actually cased from here.  I especially loved the colours, layout & how she stamped the flowers.  So easy but very striking with a WOW factor.  Thank you so much for your inspiration!

I actually didn’t change much at all as it was perfect the way it was, except I used Very Vanilla Card, changed out the greeting & I stamped a small image in amongst the flowersOh-So-Eclectic---inside from the same set.

The set is a 2-step stamping technique.  The beauty about this technique?  The images don’t have to be perfectly lined up with each other.

The flower outline was randomly stamped direct onto a piece of Very Vanilla using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink before stamping the matching solid image over the top using Berry Burst & Lemon Lime Twist Inks.  I then randomly stamped the small dotty image around the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I stamped “Daughter” from the “Thoughtful Banners” Stamp Set onto scrap Very Vanilla.  The label outline was stamped using Berry Burst Ink before punching with the Classic Label Punch.

I layered the stamped card to a piece of Basic Black, then onto a piece of Lemon Lime Twist & finally to the Base Card – Berry Burst before popping on the sentiment with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Hope you enjoyed my card today.

Until next time, Happy Stampin!
