Thanks so much for joining me today.  I am participating in the Stamping Dreams Blog Hop for April.  It has been a few months since I’ve played along.  The theme this month is showcasing our favourite DSP.  This can be from the 2017-2018 Annual or the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  It is also the perfect opportunity to use some of that gorgeous DSP before it retire.
For me, I decided to go along with the Birthday Memories DSP.  I haven’t Birthday-Memories-DSP---Insused it much but in the past week I’ve found myself playing with it lots.  The colours & design of the DSP are great for both girls & boys.
As I wanted to showcase this fun DSP, there isn’t any stamping except for the sentiment which is from the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set.

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).

By clicking on the links list below the photo, you can check out the other lovely creations in the hop.

Thanks once again for stopping by & checking out my project today.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

I am slowing going through my DSP & trying to put most of it to good use.  Still don’t see much difference but I’m sure I will get there in the end.

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.

Be sure to pop on over to FMS to check out what the design team have created along with all the lovely entries.

No Bones About It

No-Bones-About-It-2---Close

Today’s card is one of the few we created last week in class using the No Bones About It Stamp Set.  We split the class into pairs so that they could work o a couple of different cards.  I don’t usually do classes this way but over the next couple of weeks you will understand why

We actually had 2 lovely kids attend on Friday with their Nana & they loved it.No-Bones-About-It-2---Insid  They even managed to do the Technique we did on our 2nd card – hence the splitting of the class & requested the same technique for today which I am more than happy to do.  Abby even mentioned that this one was a lot harder than the technique one.

I originally got the idea from Pinterest but did change it out a little to suit me.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

If you click on the link below, you will be able to download a tutorial to create your own card.  Don’t have the stamp set?  Then change it out to suit what you have in your stash.

Pieces-&-Patterns---Close-U

Today’s card is a suite that is retiring – Pick a Pattern.  It includes the cute little stamp set Pieces & Patterns, along with the Pick a Pattern DSP.

I actually took the idea from the one of the samples on Page 40 of the 2017-2018 AnnualPieces-&-Patterns---Inside Catalogue & changed it around a little, well a lot.  The sentiment has been stamped in VersaMark onto Basic Black CS & heat embossed with White Emboss Powder.

Just a Note…

Crafting-Forever---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

I have a simple, quick & easy card for you today.  I am trying to use up as much DSP as possible before it retires.  Along with the DSP, I am also going to try & play with stamp sets that haven’t seen ink for some time.  This means that over the next couple of months you will see lots of cards using lots of retiring product.

This card took me all of about 10 minutes once I knew what I wanted to do & Crafting-Forever---Insidehow I was going to create it.  Don’t you just love this type of card.  I don’t think it needs much as the gorgeous DSP from the Color Theory Pack says it all.

By changing the colour & sentiment, it would be perfect for the males.

Yesterday I shared with you a card using the Eclipse Technique.

Well today, I am sharing another using the same technique but this time round it is a Christmas Card which was created in one of my classes back in February.  Is it too early to make a start on our Christmas cards?

 

The Eclipse Technique is available to download by clicking on the Free Technique Christmas-InsideTutorials Page.  Print it out, file in a folder & keep on hand to use or to refer back to at a later date.

Yes, SU! Demos are able to use them for your classes, workshops & demonstrations.  It just means that all the work is done for you, except of course your samples.

Here’s To Celebrating You!

Perennial-Birthday-Yellow--

My card today is one I created some time ago but have never gotten round to sharing with you.  I thought I had better do that before it goes off in the post tomorrow.

It’s a very simple little card but one with a bit of a punch as the background has been created using the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set & coloured with Stampin’ Blends.  Some of the Rhinestones have been coloured with the Dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend.  The centre was die cut with the square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits, layered onto 2 pieces of Whisper White & then adhered back into place – Eclipse Technique.

Beautiful Peacock

Beautiful-Peacock-1---Close

With Sale-A-Bration drawing to a close in the next week – 31 March, I thought I had better start sharing with you some of the cards we’ve been creating in our classes.

Today is such a card using the Beautiful Peacock Stamp Set.  It is a gorgeous set, especially as we have a family of them wandering around the streets where I live paying visits toBeautiful-Peacock-1---Insid different people.  They will sometimes come up to my door if I’m not out the front wanting to say hello & show off their babies.

I started off with a case of the sample in the Catalogue, but as usual it sort of took a turn & went off on it’s own.  But hey that is good, isn’t it?

The colours I’ve used are Emerald Envy & Night of Navy.  Teamed with Whisper White, Even with layers I think it is fresh & clean card.

Grab your free tutorial by clicking on the link below.  It includes a list of products, measurements (metric & imperial) plus the instructions.

This lovely set could be yours for free when you spend $90.00 but only while Sale-A-Bration is going.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
