Remarkable You #2


Today’s card is #2 of the set of Thank You Cards I created yesterday using Remarkable You Stamp Set.  Did you catch it while it was on sale yesterday?

I’ve created it exactly the same way as my card yesterday except this time my card is Landscape & I’ve used Stampin’ BlendsRich Razzleberry & Cherry Cobbler.

I layered the stamped piece of Very Vanilla CS onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry CS & then Remarkable-You1---Thank-Youto the Very Vanilla Note Card.


I will have the 3rd card to share with you tomorrow so don’t forget to pop back in to chack it out.


Until next time, Happy Stampn’





Remarkable You


G’Day Stampers,

I trust you all took advantage of the 24 hours sale yesterday & will again for the remainder of the week.  I know I did & can’t wait to create with some of the new products on its way to me.

Today’s card is one of a set of Thank You Cards I’ve created with the lovely Remarkable You Stamp Set which was on the 24 hour sale yesterday.  I do apologise that I don’t have a tutorial for you to download as it went off in the mail yesterday.

I stamped my image direct onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS in Memento Tuxedo Ink, coloured with Stampin’ Blends Rich Razzleberry & Daffodil Delight.  I applied Clear Wink of Stella to the bottom parts of the petals.  I love it when I can use 2 different colours to colour my flowers – it seems to make them more real somehow.

The sentiment is from One Big Meaning Stamp Set & was stamped direct onto the card front in Memento Tuxedo Ink.  I created a “frame” around the images with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker before layering onto a piece of Daffodil Delight CS & then to the Base Card – Very Vanilla Note Card.

To complete the card I applied Candy Dots – Brights & Regals (retired) to the front.  You could easily replace with current Embellishments & colour with the Stampin’ Blends.

If you pop back tomorrow I will share with you another of the cards created using the same set & supplies.

Until next time, Happy Stampn’





Stampin’ Blends are Here….


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.

287. You’ve Got This


Half Full


G’Day Stampers,

My card today is one we are creating in Cards @ Toogoom today using the Half Full Stamp Set which is available in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  It took me a little time to grab this one as I wasn’t too sure if I would like it or not BUT I LOVE it!  In fact I know quite a few ladies that would just love this set & card…..  Fingers crossed the ladies today do too.

I actually took my inspiration from a card I saw on Pinterest but made it my own, sortHalf-Full-1---Inside of!  Thank you so much Amanda for your inspiration.

The Whisper White is actually Shimmery White & has been embossed using the Holly EF before being layered onto a piece of Pool Party CS & then to the Base Card – Sahara Sand.  As I am a lover of non-traditional colours for Christmas, I am actually loving these colours together & may have to play more with them.  Pink Pirouette & Sahara Sand also spring to mind.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’





283. Merry Christmas – Half Full


May Your Sorrow…

… be eased by Wonderful Memories


I created this card for a friend of mine lost her brother in a fishing accident a couple of weeks ago.  They are not the best cards to create but we do have to do them sometimes.

I’ve used the new Stampin’ Blends – Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive to colour my flower & leaves.  The image is from the lovely Birthday Blooms Stamp Set.

The image has been stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured with the Stampin’ Blends & layered to a piece of Basic Black CS before being adhered to the Base Card – Whisper White, which is in fact a Note Card.

The sentiment is from Better Together & has been stamped onto a scrap piece of Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black, punched either end with the Banner Triple Punch before being adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card was completed by randomly adhering small Pearl Basic Jewels to the Card Front.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’






Flirty Flowers


G’Day Stampers,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend & did heaps of creating!

Today’s card has been re-created from one I did a month or so ago & have never shared with you.  It is a simple little card but one that I am happy with.  I am not sure whether it is the colours or the cute little Flirty Flowers Stamp Set.

To create today’s card I’ve used the brand new Stampin’ Blends which will be available to everyone 1 November.  Believe me, you will want them in your collection.  They are just wonderful!

I randomly stamped the images direct onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink before proceeding to colour the main flowers with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.  The larger leaves have been coloured with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends, but very light while the smaller ones I’ve left as they are.

For some of the smaller flowers I’ve used my Blender Pen & Melon Mambo Ink For some reason I love Daffodil Delight & Melon Mambo together especially when you add touches of Basic Black which is what I layered the Whisper White onto before layering onto a Daffodil Delight Base Card.

The sentiment is from Bunch of Blossoms & has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

How do I know this – well, being a Demonstrator gives you a couple of perks & one of them was being able to order the Blends at the beginning of October which gave me time to play & play I have done.  They are very easy to use & blend nicely.  You will surely be able to colour & blend just like an artist!

Why Will I Love the Stampin’ Blends?

  • Each colour has a light & dark shade marker (except Ivory & Bronze)
  • Come in sets of 2 but as they are not refillable, you are able to purchase them individually when they need replacing (I love this idea)
  • Add the right amount of colour with the brush tip or fine-point tip
  • The lids are able to be stacked on each other & are a tight fit for long-lasting colour
  • A press fit seal prevents air from entering the barrel which causes evaporation

Yes, if you are thinking of joining Stampin’ Up!® you are able to add them to your Starter Kit.  Join here.October
