G’Day Stampers,

If you remember I shared with you a couple of cards created using the flower from the  lovely Beautiful Day Stamp Set now available in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  Well today, I am sharing the remaining couple of cards created using the same set but this time round I’ve used the gorgeous butterfly.

Card #1 – I stamped the butterfly in Memento Tuxedo Black ink direct onto the Note Card.  I then stamped a 2nd butterfly onto scrap Whisper White & coloured with theBeautiful Day, Stampin' Blends, Washi Tape, 2018 Occasions Catalogue Stampin’ Blends – Pink Pirouette, Daffodil Delight & Night of Navy.  It is a little bright but I think the Pink tones it down a little.  The butterfly was fussy cut & adhered over the stamped butterfly with Stampin’ Dimensionals under the wings to pop them up a little.

I applied Basic Pack 2 Washi Tape down the left hand side & across the bottom of the card.

To finish the card I randomly scattered Pearl Basic Jewels.

Beautiful-Day-5Card #2 – Has been created exactly the same way except I’ve randomly stamped the small group of flowers in Pool Party, used the Basic Pack 3 Washi Tape down the left hand side & along the bottom.

The butterfly has been coloured with the Stampin’ Blends – Pool Party, Daffodil Delight & Calypso Coral.  Not as bright as the first card but I’m happy with it just the same.

Again it was fussy cut before adhering over the stamped butterfly on the Note Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals under the wings to pop them a little.  Pearl Basic Jewels were randomly scattered around the card to finish it off.

Christmas Wishes

The Christmas products in this year’s Holiday Catalogue are gorgeous.  I love everything single Christmas Set & didn’t really know what to get my hands on first, so I did the sensible thing & planned classes around each of them.026blog

Today’s card is one of the ones we created early in September.  I know, slack on my behalf.

As soon as I saw this set & the samples in the catalogue I knew I wanted to plan a “Heat Embossing” Technique Class around them.  They were just beautiful.  Mind you, I did add a couple of “Vicky” touches to make them my own.

We didn’t really use a lot of product to create this gorgeous card, although I added Night of navy as the Base Card & Heat Embossed the 2 Cones using VersaMark & Soft Suede Ink, cut out & adhered to the top of the branch which has been Heat Embossed using VersaMark & White Embossing Powder.

Of course, we couldn’t complete the card without using the stunning new “All is Calm” Washi Tape

Measurements –

1 x Night of Navy Cardstock               11 ¾” x 4 1/8” or 29cm x 10.5cm

1 x Pool Party Cardstock                     5 5/8” x 4” or 14.5cm x 10cm

Merry Christmas….

One of our Technique Classes for November was to use “Washi Tape“.  I will be the first to admit that I was not keen on using this Tape as I have never really been able to get into what all the hype was all about. 

Knowing some of the ladies had played with the Tape previously & comments like “Don’t know what everyone is raving about“, “Nope, not me”, “Don’t know what to do with it other than stick it on a corner”, etc.  You get the idea.  I decided to jump out of my comfort zone & play with some!  Well, what a mistake on my behalf – I am hooked.  I can now understand all the hype!

I think I’ve convinced everyone that it is a great little product & the result can create a very different look!

Since this photo was taken, I’ve added a little bit of bling to the centre of the present & to the bow at the top.

    Our new challenge is up & running over at Sunny Challenges & Creations

    All you have to do is share something that you have created for the Christmas Season.  Maybe you have created your own decorations, table settings, boxes, banner, scrapbook page, etc. 
    For my first sample, I decided to do a couple of scrapbook pages ready in time for Christmas Day. I am really happy with how they turned out.  Today is Page 1 of the pages which will fit a 5″ x 7″ photo with a small white border.
    Supplies –
    Stamp Set – Morning Post Numbers
    Ink – Crumb Cake
    Cardstock – Whisper White, Textured Old Olive
    DSP – Season of Style
    Ribbon – 1″ Stitched Edge Grosgrain – Cherry Cobbler
    Washi Tape – Season of Style
    Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Paper Piercing Mat & Tool
    I cut 2 strips of DSP into 2″ wide x 11″ while the 3rd strip was 2″ x 12″ & adhered them to the RHS of the Old Olive Textured CS.  I just love Textured CS for scrapbooking!
    A 5 1/4″ x 7 1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS was adhered over the strips of DSP.  I stamped “2013” onto a piece of Whisper White CS 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ using Crumb Cake Ink.  Prior to adhering to the page, a “V” was cut from one end.
    With my Paper Piercing Mat & Tool I pierced a double layer around the Whisper White Mat.  A bow was tied from the Cherry Cobbler Ribbon & the adhered to the RHS of the year.
    I then adhered a couple of strips of Washi Tape to the top LHS of the page.  I also placed a piece of Whisper White, cut into a banner for a little bit of journaling.
    All in all a very simple page, but one that represents Christmas!

    We know everyone is busy at this time of the year, so we have extended this challenge out to the new year, which means you have lots of extra time to play along.  We would love for you to link your creation or creations with us.  All you have to do is post it on line & then link back to Mr Linky.
    Until next time, Happy Stampin’!

    I am a little late in posting my challenge sample for the current challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations.  Been having a little trouble with Blogger.

    It was Kris’ turn to give us our challenge & this week all we had to do was use that great new fantastic product – Washi Tape somewhere on our card!

    I decided to try something different this week & created a set of 6 invitations using Washi Tape BUT also using MDS as well as normal ink & card.

    I have actually cased this from the current Catalogue, Page 11.  I did change it a little to suit what I wanted.  It could easily be created using the actual Stamp Sets, which I have but decided to go with MDS for a change.

    Supplies –
    Stamp Set – 134850 – MDS Cycle Celebration Stamp Brush Set
                       133019 – MDS Make a Wish Stamp Brush Set
    Ink – Pacific Point – 126951
    Cardstock – Pacific Point – 116202, Whisper White – 106549, Crushed Curry – 131288
    Washi Tape – MDS 129017 – Washi Delightful Digital Tape
    Accessories – Snail Adhesive

    Invitation Set
