Goodbye Playful Palette

Let’s face it, this time of the year we usually have stacks of that lovely DSP left that we just didn’t dare cut into.  BUT now, we’re sort of stuck with heaps of it sitting on our shelves.  I’m not sure but over the past few weeks, I’ve been creating with lots of that pretty DSP.

Yep, this is another that is retiring at the end of May.  I will miss “Playful Palette” DSP Stack.  It took me a long time to warm to it, even though it was purchased in my pre-order, I just couldn’t get my head around it.  This little beauty is a DSP Paper Stack & I love them!

Happy Birthday

With the school holidays being on, I decided to hold a couple of classes each week until school returns at the end of the month & then we will be doing the adult classes once again.

Much to my surprise they loved it.  The kids were lovely & so happy to be playing with stamps, inks, papers, punches & of course the Big Shot.  I had 1 little girl say all she wanted was her cupcake to pop up like her Aunty……  She squealed with delight when we popped her cake up & just about fell over with excitement & couldn’t wait to show it to her Aunty.  The kids even had the names that they were going to give their cards too.

I saw this card on the internet sometime ago & thought it perfect for them to create.  A little bit of everything.  Unfortunately I am unable to find it again to link back, so a huge thank you for your inspiration.

The card may look a lot to create but breaking it down, you will have it created in no time.

Pretty Pattern Papers – September

A huge thank you once again, to everyone who has been supporting us throughout our adventure/s.  It is very much appreciated.

Each month we release a set of 3 cards using DSP (Designer Series Paper), along with a septemberSketch, Supplies, Measurements & Instructions.  It is a way to get you to use up that lovely stash of Paper you have sitting in your cupboard.  The sketches are able to be used over & over so that you are creating entirely different looks.

This month we are playing with the lovely DSP Stack – Playful Palette.  I will admit although I love the papers I was finding them very hard to use.  Now that I have cut into it, ideas are flowing!

Throughout the month, I will be creating more cards using this lovely paper, so be sure to pop back to check them out.

We hope you will join us this month.  To purchase your Tutorial, please click on the Pretty Pattern Papers Page.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Good Morning Stampers,1.--April

I’m sharing  a card Naomi & I created on Wednesday when we had a bit of a play arvo.

I love all the white on the card but at the same time adding bits of colour by using DSP, Candy Dots & Ink.  I wanted to showcase another way of using up your bits of DSP you have hanging around your craft room or even pieces you haven’t cut into as yet.  It is also to remind you that we have our Pretty Pattern Papers Tutorial available for sale.

I’m not really a brights person, but am very happy with the way this card turned out!  Don’t you love it when an idea works?  I would love to know what you think.

Don’t forget this DSP is on the Retirement List along with the Candy Dots, so now is the time to grab them before they are gone forever.

Don’t forget, by clicking on the link above the photo, you can download the tutorial to create your own card.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Catalogue Launch #2

My 2nd Catalogue Launch was last Saturday with a couple of lovely ladies turning up.  We had a lovely time, chatting, laughing & creating a card using “Sprinkles of Life”.  I thought it would be a lot of fun to create something different to my first one as it showcases how versatile this set can be.  We still stuck with a kid’s card.

I saw something similar on Pinterest a little while ago & thought it a great idea to create a card.  I did change mine around a little, well a lot.

The DSP I used on this card is Pool Party DSP from the Subtles Pack but is now retired.  For the little dots I used the Rubber on the top of a Pencil with Pool party.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Catalogue Launch

At the beginning of June I had my Catalogue Launch for the 2015-2016 Catalogue,the 2nd one was held last Saturday.008wmefb-blog

We got to play with the fantastic, but fun “Sprinkles of Life” where #3.00 for every set sold is donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities.  The ladies loved it, especially when they found there was a matching Tree Builder Punch to go with it!

We had a fun afternoon playing with the Stamp Set, punch & even had a go creating a bag each using the Gift Bag Punch Board, but those will be shown later on.

Along with the card, the ladies each received a little box of goodies & chocolate, plus a prize each for just turning up!

I saw this card on Pinterest a little while ago & decided that this would be the perfect card to showcase this set!  To get my colours I actually used the Colour Coach and changed a couple of things around.  Thank you Sandi for your inspiration.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Sprinkles of Life…

…is one of the lovely new sets in the upcoming new SU! Catalogue.  In fact, not only is so versatile & so very cute, it is the Ronald McDonald Charity Set for the year where every $3.00 from the purchase of this set goes towards this worthy charity.FabFri64

I also liked the clean & easy challenge over at Fab Friday & thought this the perfect opportunity to ink the set & give you a sneak peak.

I’ve even surprised myself by using some of the gorgeous new In-Colours & DSP – “Cherry on Top” Paper Stack.  This stack comes in 6″ x 6″.

I will admit I did add one extra element to my card as I made a mistake when stampining direct onto my card.  Why is it I can make a mistake when playing on scrap paper but save it for the real thing?  Mind you, they do say there are no mistakes in crafting!

To cover my error, I stamped the sentiment onto scrap Whisper White, punched out with Word window Punch (which is retiring) & adhered over the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Mistake gone!

Thank you everyone at Fab Friday Challenge Blog for a great challenge.  Why not head over & check out what everyone has created.
