Happy Birthday

A couple of weeks ago I created 2 cards using the fun “Bike Ride” Bundle.  Well today I amBike-Ride---Iside showing you the 3rd card created using basically the same supplies, colours & layout.  The differences being I’ve used Chocolate Chip as my Base Card, Embossing Paste & Crumb Cake & Chocolate Chip Ink Re-Fills along with Sunshine Sayings for my greeting.

To achieve my “footpath”,  I added a 3 small amounts of Embossing Paste onto the Silicone Craft Sheet, added a very tiny drop of Crumb Cake & Chocolate Chip Ink Refills to 2 of the amounts but not really mixing them.

I placed the “Brick” Decorative Mask to the bottom part of a piece of Whisper White Card, Bike-Ride---Embossing-Pasteapplied the White Embossing Paste followed by the Crumb Cake & then the Chocolate Chip to the Mask.  I found doing it this way, I had a more of a distinctive look with the colours.

The “Happy Birthday” was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS, punched with the Classic Label Punch & adhered behind the bike to look like a “flag”.

I’m finding this Bundle lots of fun with lots of ideas popping into my head as I create my cards.

251. Happy Birthday – Bike Ride


Bike Ride

Join RAK here

Along with the Bundle, I’ve used “Glamper Greetings” – grass & sun while the marks on the path have been creating using an image from “Touches of Texture”.

20170703_112806blog1To create my path, I randomly drew lines with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker, coloured & blended with Crumb Cake Ink & Blender Pen.

The sun was stamped in Daffodil Delight, coloured & blended with the Bender Pen.   I then blended a bit of the Daffodil Delight down towards the bike so that it looked like the sun was really shinning.

Crafting Forever

Heya Stampers,

My card today is one we created last week in our class “Cards @ Toogoom“.  The ladies loved it & thought it was a perfect way to use up those bits of DSP hanging around, not 20170612_102411blog-insidedoing anything but sitting just in case…..

For me it was the perfect time to showcase the gorgeous “Crafting Forever” Stamp Set, Page 181 of the new Catalogue.  It has a couple of lovely images great for the male, female & kids.

I’ve used the “Playful Palette” DSP Stack (retired) but the perfect excuse to use most of the remaining pages.  You could easily change out the DSP, replace it with current DSP to achieve an entirely different look.

To highlight the DSP even further & for the colours to pop even more,  I allowed a small amount of Basic Black to show between each piece.

I didn’t colour the image as I thought the DSP was busy enough & didn’t want to take away from the DSP.  I did, however, “Paper Pieced” the vase with the same DSP.

To create your own card, just click on the link below to download the tutorial which includes all the product used & measurements (metric & imperial).  SU! Demonstrators are quiet welcome to use the tutorial for any of their classes.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

You’re Sublime

Hey Stampers,

My card today is one we created in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class last Friday.  Please feel free to come along each Friday morning at 9.30am at the Community Hall.


I’ve been trying to create & showcase some of the lovely product that will be retiring at the end of May & today is no different.  I’ve used the cute little Stamp Set – “You’re Sublime”.  I love this set & always get a bit of a kick when using it.

To colour my sub I’ve used So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Pool Party & Peekaboo Peach Inks along with my Blender Pen.  The little hearts have been coloured using the Real Red Watercolour Pencils.

As Mint Macaron is a 2015-2017 In Colour, it will be retiring this year.  I will really miss this colour as it is one of “go to” colours.

Don’t forget to click on the link above the photo to download your Free Tutorial which includes Measurements (Metric & Imperial), as well as a Supply List of all the product I’ve used to create my card.

To place your order before all the retiring products have gone forever, be sure to pop on over to my Online ShopMayDon’t forget to use May’s Host Code to receive a gift from me.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Day 3 – Any Occasion

Today’s post is a little late.  I can’t seem to get my act together even though my card was created way ahead of time.20170329_091110_resizedblog

I’ve used the “Carried Away” DSP along with the “Any Occasion” Stamp Set, both from Sale-a-Bration.   I did get my inspiration from a card on Page 15 of the Catalogue but then used our sketch we have for our team to play with.  I teamed the Stamp Set & DSP with the matching “Up & Away” Framelits from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.

209. Hello – Any Occasion


Happy Birthday

Today’s card is one we are creating in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class this morning.  I hope 20170322_112448_resizedblogthe ladies like it!

I started by caseing the card from the 2017 SAB Catalogue but it sort of went off on its own.  I then found a card on Pinterest that I loved so I ended finishing my card by caseing it.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

I’m loving my Blender Pen at the moment as the new smooth & improved Watercolour Pencils make it so very easy to use.  I also want the class to play with them as they are very interested in different techniques, so look out class, we will be doing lots of lovely techniques in our future classes.

Don’t forget that we only have 7 days until SAB ends for another year.  Grab your Free items when you spend $AUD90.00.  You can place your order by shopping Online or contacting me.  SU! have been very generous once again & added 8 new items to the list for the last 2 weeks.

202. Happy Birthday – Tasty Trucks


Ahoy There

My card I am sharing with you today was created for a challenge but as usual, completely forgot to post it.  Well, to be honest, I couldn’t find what challenge I did it for.  Does that ever happen to you?

I’ve used the lovely “By the Shore” DSP & the co-ordinating “Seaside Shore” Stamp Set.  I teamed it up with Dapper Denim & Very Vanilla Card.  Inks were Mint Macaron, Dapper Denim & Calypso Coral.  My Blender Pen was used to colour parts of the “coral”.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’






I am sharing a card today that was created for one of our Technique Treats #8 – “Faux Linen” – 2 ways where we used the lovely stamp set “A Day at the Beach” which is from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue.

I’ve done lots of sponging – moon, waves & sand.  The dolphin, thongs & ball have been coloured with Inks & Blender Pen. I’ve adhered them to the Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I’ve used the Faux Linen Technique on the Basic Black Background.

There is so much potential with the lovely little stamp set.

If you want to create more cards using this great technique, be sure to head on over to the “Technique Treats” Page.

Don’t forget, tomorrow is the release of our November Treats.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

SUO Challenge # 104

While trying to get all my stuff ready for Crafty Creations on Friday, I found a bit of Whisper White Card & decided I would create a card for the lovely Bronwen.  As I was happily creating, I remembered seeing a challenge over at SUO Challenges a couple of days ago which I think it fits, fingers crossed!!!!  The challenge calls for our card to be “Clean & Simple” .

As with most of my cards, the final result is not what I saw in my mind, but I am really happy with it.  I just love the touches of Rich Razzleberry & Coastal Cabana with lots of White showing through.006a-fb

My flowers have been coloured using Rich Razzleberry & Coastal Cabana Blendabilities & then little white dots added with the Stampin’ Chalk Marker.  If you don’t have the Marker, you could also use the White Gel Pen.  The flowers were then punched out with the Pansy Punch.

A strip of Rich Razzleberry DSP has been cut from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stacks, a strip of Coastal Cabana adhered down both sides before adhering to a piece of Whisper White Card.  The whole piece has then been adhered to the Base Card – Whisper White.

Two of the flowers have been adhered to the Base Card with Multipurpose Glue, while the middle flower is popped up with a Stampin’ Dimensional & a small Pearl Basic Jewel popped in the centre of each flower.

I stamped “Thank You” onto scrap Whisper White Card in Rich Razzleberry Ink, cut it out with the matching Framelit by running through the Big Shot & adhered one side to the card.


Thank you for a great challenge.  I did try to leave a comment, but somehow the site wouldn’t allow it.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
