Kylie’s International Top Ten winners Blog Hop


Top Ten international Highlights Winners only

Thank you so much to everyone who voted for me last month.  Because of your votes I get to hop along with Kylie & 10 lucky Demos.  It is always a lovely surprise that I never expect to see as the best part is playing along with all the other lovely Demos each month  You are able to check my card from last month here.

Once again our theme is “Friendship” which leaves it wide open as to shat we can create.

I wasn’t too sure if I would like this Suite but I must say Stampin’ Up! never seem to disappoint.  I am loving the Tea Room Suite, especially the gorgeous Tea Room Specialty DSP & the matching Time for Tea Stamp Set & Spot of Tea Framelits which are both Time-for-Tea---Openavailable as a Bundle.

The fold on this card sort of popped into my head a couple of weeks ago when I was looking at a sketch layout for my team.  It is a little different but one that is very quick & easy.  I am working on the portrait fold at the moment & will post that once complete.

Just a Note…


Our card today is one we did in one of our classes last month.  We had a play with Brushos using them in different ways.  We also created with the Touches of Texture Stamp Set – love this set!  We combined the Brushos with the Sweetheart Textured Embossing Folder.

The flower has been coloured with Stampin’ Blends – Daffodil Delight & Pumpkin Pie.  These little beauties will once again be available in the new Catalogue in June.

If you click on the link below, you will be able to download your very own tutorial to create your version of today’s card.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Stampin’ Up! Retiring Products Blog Hop

retiringproductsbloghopThank you for joining me today.  I’m pretty excited as this is the first time I’ve been a part of the RemARKably Created Blog Hop which is open to all SU! Demonstrators from around the globe.  I have looked at the hop for a while now & thought this the perfect time to hop along.  This month it is all about Retiring Products!  Thank you so much Janet for making this possible.

As always at the start of a new catalogue year, there is so much that I THINK I am going to miss, but seem to get over very quickly as all the new “stuff” starts to arrive & before I  know it I am once again, busy playing with my new “stuff” that the retired product is long forgotten. 

Rose-Wonder---Close-UpI thought I would share with you one of my all time favourite Sets – Rose Wonder along with the matching Rose Garden Thinlits.  I am sure going to miss these items, but no doubt Stampin’ Up! will have much bigger & better things available for us to purchase.

To start off with I stamped the flower onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, coloured with Pink Pirouette & Old Olive Stampin’ Blends (available once again in the new catalogue) before die cutting the rose outline & adhering over the top of the stamped image.

Birthday Blossoms


Today I am sharing with you one of the cards we created using the Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set along with the Naturally Eclectic DSP.  The ladies absolutely loved the card, especially the flowers for some reason.  I think it may be the colours which I picked up from the DSP.Birthday-Blooms-1---Inside

I’ve stamped Emerald Envy Ink direct onto Emerald Envy CS, fussy cut before adhering to the card.  The DSP was layered onto a piece of Peekaboo Peach CS & then to a Fresh Fig Base.

FMS #332


When I saw the sketch over at Fresh Made Sketches, I had to play along.  It is so clean & simple, but sometimes these are the hardest ones to create.  Anyhow, I think I have succeeded & yes I am still playing with the Color Theory DSP.

My card is very simple but I think it works best with this type of DSP so it fitted inuntitled perfectly with the sketch.  Thank you so much ladies for a great challenge & getting me creating out of my comfort zone.

Kylie’s International Top Ten February Winners Blog Hop


I was one of the lucky ones who made it to the top ten in Kylie’s International Blog Hop last month with this card using the Petal Palette.  Because of your vote, I get to hop along with 9 other lucky Demos.  Thank you to everyone who voted for me.  It is very much appreciated.

Once again our theme is “Sale-a-Bration and Occasions Catalogue Product”..

While creating this card for the hop, it suddenly occurred to me that it could go in the Springtime-Foil-DSP---Flowemail today for a friend who is celebrating her birthday.

I am loving the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP from the SAB 2nd release & available while stocks last.  It is perfect for colouring, fussy cutting, backgrounds & just about everything else you can think of.

I’ve coloured a couple of the flowers from the DSP with Stampin’ Blends, fussy cut & adhered to the card front.  The silver bling is actually Rhinestone Basic Jewels covered with VersaMark & heat set with Silver Emboss Powder.  I wanted something a little different & to match in with this gorgeous paper.

If you click on the link above the card, you will be able to download your free tutorial to create your own card.  It includes a list of products used, measurements (metric & imperial) plus the instructions..

332.  Celebrate You – Petal Passion Bundle


Magical Day


Last week I challenged our FB Group to create a male card using the sketch provided.  I thought it would be a great way to get their creative juices flowing & even use it for a class or demonstration.  This is my take on the sketch.

I love the Magical Day Stamp Set in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  The set could be used for so many different occasions, big kids & little kids.  I teamed it up with the #12---2018coordinating Myths & Magic Specialty DSP which is nearly too lovely to cut into, but cut into it I did!

The dragon has been die cut from the Specialty DSP using the Magical Mates Framelits, highlighted a little with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends before being adhered to the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The background was created with the Gamboge & Yellow Brushos – love these Powders – by spritzing Shimmery White with water & tapping Brushos directly over the CS, allowing it to spread & setting aside to dry.

The circle is Very Vanilla & was sponged with Daffodil Delight & Tangerine Tango Inks.  I Magical-Day-Inside---Brushospritzed a tiny amount of water over the sponged area before tapping very lighting with the Gamboge Brusho.

The sentiment was stamped onto Very Vanilla in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, fussy cut & once again sponged with Daffodil Delight & Tangerine Tango Inks.

Happy Birthday



I’ve been playing with the Petal Passion DSP over the last couple of days.  All I can say is “WOW”.  Loving it!  I have even managed to create cards for 2 classes using the DSP & the coordinating Stamp Set – Petal Palette.  I’ve used the Watercolour Pencils to colour along with the Stampin’ Blends which is how I’ve coloured today’s card.

I cut a piece of the DSP & randomly colouring the flowers with Calypso Coral, Pink Pirouette & Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combos.  The leaves were coloured with a Petal-Passion-Colouring---Ilittle Light Daffodil Delight & then with Old Olive Combo.  The background has been coloured in Light Pool Party.  Colouring the background made the flowers seem like they are floating.

Candy Dots were randomly scattered around the card front to finish it off but you could easily replace them with current product, eg Pearl Basic Jewels, Faceted Gems, etc.

323. Happy Birthday – Petal Passion DSP


Celebrate You – SSC171


G’Day Stampers,

Today I am playing along with a challenge over at Sunday Stamps.  The challenge this week is “Pops of Pink“.  As I’ve been playing with the gorgeous “Painted with Love” Specialty DSP ” it was the perfect choice.  SSC171

I’ve kept my layout fairly simple so that I could showcase the beautiful paper as well as the flower from the “Beautiful Day” Stamp Set.

The sentiment is from the same set & was stamped direct onto the Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black.  I’ve used both Pink Pirouette & Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Combos to colour my flower while the leaf has been Beautiful-Day-Pink-Insidecoloured with Old Olive & Daffodil Delight.

To lift the flower away from the DSP, I added a small amount of Gold Metallic Thread which I think ties it altogether. To finish it off I added a little touch of Clear Wink of Stella to the petals.

If you click on the link below you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own card.  The tutorials includes measurements (metric & imperial) along with a list of supplies used to create the card.

Thank you ladies for a great challenge.  Do pop along to Sunday Stamps to check out all the other lovely creations.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
