Live with Zest

Hi All
           It's a gorgeous sunny day here, I hope wherever you are you're enjoying some sunshine too.  I wholeheartedly agree with the sentiments in the Lemon Zest Stamp Set.  This has been brought home to me this year with some health issues with my parents and also myself.  We have to live life to the fullest despite the obstacles that come our way.  So "Live it with Zest" everyone!!!   Share a smile with a stranger or try to find joy in the simple things you do.

Well anyway enough of the deep and meaningful let's get the the fun stamping stuff.  In case you hadn't noticed Embossing Paste is very on trend at the moment.  Stampin' Up! released Embossing Paste and assorted tools including the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and Palette Knives in the Annual Catalogue and let me just say it's so much fun to play with.

Now normally I would have thought it would be a messy process but it's not really.  All you have to remember is the Embossing Paste dries quickly so clean your masks and tools immediately after each use.  You can colour the paste as you can see on the card.  You simply put a bit of paste on your silicon matt add 2-3 drops of reinker and mix it in with a palette knife then apply over your mask or as desired.

Stamp Set: Lemon Zest
Inks: Lemon Lime Twist, Garden Green
Card: Lemon Lime Twist, Garden Green, Whisper White
Punches: Lemon Builder
Accessories: Garden Green Reinker, Silicon Matt, Embossing Paste, Palette Knives, Pattern Party Decorative Masks, Clear Wink of Stella, Adhesive, Dimensionals

Cherry Blossom Birthday

Hiya All,
                I am really enjoying spring at the moment, the flowers blooming and the increase in sunshine.  You've just got to love that right.  Here's my card as a quick nod to spring, Cherry Blossom's in Bloom using the gorgeous Sweet Sugarplum - I really love this colour it's such a nice shade between pink and purple.

First off I stamped the greeting in the centre of the Whisper White Layer and then cut out using the Circle from the Stitched Shape Framelits.  Then I used the outside that you'd normally discard or use as a mask.  I stamped the branches first in Soft Suede and lined up the Two Stepped Flower images over the branch.  I enjoy two step stamping using Photopolymer Stamps, it's so easy to line up the images so they stamp perfectly.  Then lastly I added some small corner cut outs punched with the Decorative Border Punch.

The sentiment is adhered straight to the card base and the outside frame is popped up using dimensionals, which is a little hard to see with the photo.  You could easily add a bit of Clear Wink of Stella, Pearls or Rhinestone's if you wanted to add some bling to this project.  I hope you enjoyed seeing this card as much as I enjoyed making it.

A Little Wild

Hi Stampers,
                     The card I'm sharing today is a cute and softly toned card.  I fell in love with the A Little Wild Stamp set images they were just so cute with the front and back of the animals.  You could easily use this card for a child or for a baby card, the colours are soft and muted.  I've added to that effect by sponging around the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper (DSP), Soft Sky & Whisper White layers by sponge daubing the edges with Soft Sky ink, it really softens up the look of the card.

I kept to the circular theme portrayed in the DSP by punching out the focal image with the Starburst Punch and then the sentiment with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.  I used my colours based from what was in the DSP pack.  I made a very similar card to this for a very good friend recently for the birth of her son, I did use the alternate greeting from the stamp set " A great big welcome for a sweet little someone".

Painted Harvest

Hi All
           Here's a quick and easy Z-Fold Card we made recently at Stamp Class.  Z Fold car sometimes look complicated but are pretty simple in reality.  Cut an A4 piece of hard in half so it's 10.5cm x 29.7cm then fold in half - just like a regular card.  Then fold one of the card sides in half again with the valley fold in the middle as shown in the picture below.  Then simply add your focal layer the top. My top tip here is to only put adhesive a bit less than half way on the focal card layer on the side that's being stuck to the small card front fold otherwise you'll adhere the card shut.

To help the leaves dazzle I used Clear Wink of Stella on them and punched out the leaves in colours that co-ordinate with the pattern paper.  Such a quick and easy way to make a colour combo.  I stamped a layer of ink of the leaf image stamped in Crushed Curry so it was a bit more subtle.  You can't see it but there is another Very Vanilla Panel inside the card with the same leaves stamped to tie it all together and allow some space to write a message.

Stamp Set: Painted Harvest
Inks: Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze
Card: Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla, Painted Autumn DSP
Punches: Leaf
Accessories: Stampin' Trimmer Score Blade, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, Adhesive.

Holiday Catalogue is Here!

Hi All
          Woohoo the Holiday Catalogue is here!! It's jam packed full of seasonal goodies to refresh your stamping inspiration and get your creativity flowing.  Here's a fun card we made at card class this week using a new Bundle from the Catalogue the Swirly Sentiment Stamp Set and Swirly Snowflake Thinlits.  Don't you just love bundles not only does everything co-ordinate but you get it at 10% discount.

I must admit I am a susceptible for cursive font's and fell in love with the sentiments in the stamp set immediately.  The set also has some lovely snowflake images.  The Swirly Snowflake dies are intricate and beautiful - definitely a show stopper.

Every year I say to myself I won't buy the snowflake set in the Holiday Catalogue... and every year I do.  So from now on I'm going to embrace it, even though we don't have a White Christmas in Australia with snow.  I helped lift the card with some Basic Rhinestone Jewels and some of the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape.

Ink: Fresh Fig
Card: Fresh Fig, Whisper White

Swirly Thanks

Hi Stampers,
                     Here's the thank you card I gave to the ladies that ordered with me last month.  It uses a stamp set I've had for a while and haven't used as much as I should the Swirly Bird Stamp Set.  It's a set of simple images that can make some very impressive cards especially when you use it with the co-ordinating dies Swirly Scribbles.

The corners of the card were made with the new Everyday Label Punch which shows off the gorgeous Berry Burst card base.  For the Swirly Bird Flowers I stamped them in Berry Burst and also Powder Pink.  I stamped the flowers on diagonal corners so that I could leave a nice space of Whisper White.  I stamped the larger leaf in Pear Pizzaz and the smaller one in Old Olive.  Lastly I stamped the Thank You sentiment from Rose Wonder in Berry Burst and punched out using the Everyday Label Punch.  To add a bit of sparkle I added some Basic Pearl Jewels.

Clean & Simple Birthday

Hi All
          Here's a quick clean and simple birthday card I designed for a private class recently.  Clean and simple cards are sometimes a challenge for me as I like to add layers.  This one came together very easily once I chose the designer series paper layer that gave me the colour co-ordination for the entire card.  That's the easiest way for me to create simple cards pick a designer series paper to give me my colours and then a stamp set that co-ordinates. 

Then I selected my Birthday Sentiment, in this case I liked the fact that it was quite a large sentiment as it could then become my focal point.  A little co-ordinating card punched each end with the Triple Banner punch and then add some Rhinestones and hey presto.

Stamps: Window Shopping
Ink: Night of Navy
Card: Soft Sky, Emerald Envy, Night of Navy, Whisper White, Naturally Eclectic DSP
Punches: Triple Banner
Accessories: Rhinestone Basic Jewels

I hope you enjoyed this card and gained a little bit of inspiration.  My Online Store is where you can purchase any of these products if you liked them.  Otherwise contact me directly and I can help you with your order.

Floral Birthday

Hello All,
                Here's a quick and easy birthday card we made in class recently.  I find it a challenge sometimes to keep cards simple but this one came together so easily I loved it.  That's my aim at the moment to make simpler cards, not that I don't love layers but sometimes it's nice to "keep it simple".

I stamped the floral image from the Wood Words Stamp set on the front of the Whisper White Card in Lemon Lime Twist.  I found when trying to stamp a larger odd shaped image as a background it's easier to start in the middle of the card and work my way out.  It's also nice to leave a few patches of white.

I embossed the layer of Lemon Lime Twist using the Petal Burst Embossing Folder this helps to add texture and depth to the card.  I stamped the Birthday Sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous onto a scrap of Whisper White and then punched out with the Pretty Label Punch and popped on some dimensionals and lastly I added some Rhinestones for a bit of bling.

Stamp Sets: Wood Words, Happy Birthday Gorgeous
Ink: Lemon Lime Twist
Card: Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist

Bright Bee's

Hi Ho Everyone,
                           Like most of you I'm looking forward to the arrival of spring.  The warming weather the chirping birds, blooming flowers and increasing amounts of sunshine.  Thinking of sunshine brings me to the bright and cheerful card I'm sharing with you today.  I made this card a while ago but the bright and cheerful Daffodil Delight and cute bee's just called to me to share them.

For this card I embossed a card layer using the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. This card layer is just a little smaller than the card base.  I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Whisper White and then cut it down using the Triple Banner punch.

The Bee's are stamped individually on Whisper White in Basic Black Archival Ink and then the Daffodil Delight wings and body are Two-Step Stamped over the Line Image of the Bees.  I fussy cut out each of the Bee's and then coloured over the wings using Clear Wink of Stella.  I had three bee's as I didn't want them do be symmetrical so I layered them in a basic triangular shape.

Stamps: Dragonfly Dreams p138
Ink: Basic Black Archival 185, Daffodil Delight p186
Card: Daffodil Delight p186, Whisper White p185
Punch: Triple Banner p206

Hello Friend

Hi All
          I have a wonderful friend who regularly mails cards out to family and friends, some just to say hi, some to help perk them up if they are having a hard time.  It's such a wonderful expression of caring to write and send that card in the mail and to know the person on the other end will get a nice surprise and a bit of joy when they open the mail.

I made this card as a bit of homage to that process and also to remind me to send a card just because rather than just for big occasions.  So here's to you my friend... you know who you are :O).  For this card I used the Lovely Inside & Out Stamp Set it's such a fun set with it's bold words and shapes. This stamp set also co-ordinates with the Lovely Words Thinlits which are just gorgeous.  When purchased as a bundle you can save 10% and know you will get lots of use out of both as they co-ordinate so well together.

I stamped the Fresh Fig circle image first as a background, the trick with any background is to stamp your images in a triangle - this helps balance things out.  Then I cleaned the circle stamp and stamped it again in Sweet Sugarplum.  Lastly I stamped the Smoky Slate droplet image randomly over the background.  I stamped the word Friend in Sweet Sugarplum first and then stamped the Hello in Fresh Fig so I could line it up as I liked.  Then I punched the layer with the Triple Banner punch and tied a bow with the Whisper White Bakers twine and layered it all together.

Stamp Set: Lovely Inside & Out, Thoughtful Banners
Inks: Fresh Fig, Sweet Sugarplum, Smoky Slate
Card: Fresh Fig, Sweet Sugarplum, Smoky Slate, Whisper White
Punches: Triple Banner
Accessories: Whisper White Bakers Twine, Dimensionals, Tear Tape Adhesive

Elegant Dragonfly

Hello Everyone,
                          Thought I'd share another Birthday card with you, using the elegant dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set.  Of course to make it simple I cut the image our using the co-ordinated Dragonfly Details Thinlits, I just love how Stampin' Up! makes crafting so easy by co-ordinating these products for us.  It really makes things simple and to be honest I don't always love to fussy cut.  For the lovely dotted background I used the dotted image from the same stamp set and stamped it in Pear Pizzaz and Marina Mist.  It's hard to tell from the photo but the wing of the dragonfly have been coloured with Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

Stamp Sets: Dragonfly Dreams, Birthday Blosssoms
Inks: Pear Pizzaz, Marina Mist, Dapper Denim
Card: Pear Pizzaz, Dapper Denim, Whisper White

Masculine Wood Birthday

Hi All
           Here's a quick and easy masculine birthday card we made at a class recently.  If you're like me sometimes you struggle when it comes to making masculine cards, especially with not putting ribbon or other embellishments on that have a feminine bent. I absolutely love the Happy Birthday Thinlits it was on my must-have list when I saw the Annual Catalogue.  Such lovely scripted writing and a nice big focal point to put on a card or 3D item.  

As a quick tip you might notice the Rhinestone's on the strip of Basic Black card aren't in the catalogue.  To colour them simply purchase a pack of Metallic Sharpies and colour them while on the backing sheet and then transfer them to your project.  This works with regular Sharpie markers too, not just the metallic ones.

Stamp Sets: Shock and Horror no stamps were used making this card...
Card:  Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Wood Textures Paper Stack
Big Shot: Happy Birthday Thinlits
Accessories: Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Metallic Sharpie Marker, Tear Tape Adhesive, Tombow Multipurpose Glue, Dimensionsals

I hope you enjoyed this creation, I think I'll make this design again using a different designer series paper in a pack of co-ordinated cards.  It would make a nice gift.  If  you liked any of the products shown here you can contact me to order or alternately visit my online store.

Medallions Make Me Smile

Hello All
               I don't know about you but I am drawn to medallion shapes, I just love the intricate designs and the circular shape.  I wanted to make the focus of this card on the sentiment and the medallion behind.  So to embrace the symmetry I made it a square card so it would all balance.

I centred the medallion in the middle of the Tranquil Tide card stock layer and then ran it through my Big Shot.  I adhered the Tranquil Tide to the Lemon Lime Twist card layer and then onto the card base.  I stamped the circular border image in Lemon Lime Twist onto Whisper White and then stamped the sentiment in Tranquil Tide in the centre.  I then punched the images out using the 2" Circle Punch and adhered to the card with dimensionals.  You could easily add some Basic Pearl or Rhinestone Jewels to this card to add a bit of bling.

A handy tip when stamping with photopolymer stamps place a Stampin' Matt underneath your card layer this will give you a nice clear image stamped.  Because of the nature of photopolymer stamps they don't have the cushioning layer that clear mount and wood mount stamps do.  So the Stampin' Matt provides the cushion.

Stamp Set: Eastern Beauty 
Ink: Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist
Card: Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, Whisper White
Big Shot: Eastern Medallion Thinlits
Punches: 2" Circle
Accessories: Tear Tape Adhesive, Dimensionals, Stampin' Matt

Thanks a Bunch

Hi All
          Here's a sweet card I made as a thank you card recently for customers placing an order with me.  One of the things I love most about Stampin' Up! is how all their products lines co-ordinate with one another.  The stamps and dies or punches, the colours and designer paper and accessories.  It makes creating cards and 3D project so easy and fun!

For this card I wanted to use the Circle Die Cut as the focal point.  I die cut the circle from Whisper White Card Stock using the Layering Circles Die.  Then I stamped the flower image from Oh So Eclectic using Peekaboo Peach and Pumpkin Pie using the Rock'n'Roll technique.  Then I stamped the Thanks sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet in Emerald Envy.  I layered a piece of Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper onto a layer of Emerald Envy card onto Peekaboo Peach card base.  I cut a piece of Peekaboo Peach Ruffled Ribbon (retired) and folded over and adhered to the back of the Circle die.

Shining Light

         Here's a little light to bring to your day.  I like lighthouse stamp sets, in fact I think I've bought everyone Stampin' Up! has released since I became a demonstrator.  Maybe it's because I live in a seaside town or maybe it's because they are very versatile.  I hope you enjoy checking out this project as much as I enjoyed making it.

I started by stamping the sand dune image from the High Tide Stamp Set using Crumb Cake ink on the Very Vanilla card layer. Then I stamped the base lighthouse image from High Tide in Night of Navy ink by lining it up with the indent in the dune.  Then I stamped the top image of the lighthouse in Night of Navy Ink layering it carefully over the base lighthouse image.  Then I stamped the bird image from High Tide in Marina Mist angling them up to the right hand corner.  I punched the top right and bottom left corners with a corner rounder punch (now retired).  I stamped the sentiment in Marina Mist on a small layer of Very Vanilla Card and then adhered to a piece of Burlap Ribbon and popped up on dimensionals.

Time for a Cuppa

Good Morning Everyone
                                         Thought it was time for a cuppa, like most I enjoy a catching up with a friend over a cup of coffee - it's a great excuse to get together and chat.  This card was creating with that in mind.  I love the combination of blue's and browns together - I have the combination in my house as a testament to how much I love the combo.

To start off with I punched the strip of Crumb Cake on both long edges with the new Ticket Tear Punch.  I sponged the edges of the punched piece and the designer series paper layer with Crumb Cake.  I stamped the Coffee Cup, Sentiment and Lid onto Crumb Cake Ink and then I stamped the Coffee Cup and Lid onto Soft Sky card.  Then I used the Coffee Cups Framelits to cut out the cups and lids and also the belly band in Crumb Cake.  I sponged the Crumb Cake Belly Band in Crumb Cake and adhered to the Soft Sky Coffee Cup.

Birthday Balloons

Hello All
               This is a card I made earlier on this year for my Dad's birthday.  Like many of you I sometimes struggle with masculine cards.  I love this colour combination and am very happy with how it turned out.

I started out with quite a bit of sponging to soften the edges of the card stock.  The Crumb Cake card base and Very Vanilla layer where sponged with Crumb Cake ink.  The Night of Navy layer was run through the big shot and the Dynamic Hexagons Textured Embossing Folder and then sponged with Night of Navy.  The Cherry Cobbler layer was punched with the Triple Banner Punch and then sponged with Cherry Cobbler.

I stamped the smaller balloon in Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla card first and then stamped the clouds in Night of Navy.  Then I stamped the larger balloon in Crumb Cake ink on a piece of Very Vanilla and then die cut with Up & Away Thinlits.  The birthday sentiment was stamped using Night of Navy and the Stamp-a-ma-jig.

Bremuda Dragonfly

Hi All
           I just love the dragonfly image from Dragonfly Dreams and the co-ordinating die Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.  My aim with this card was to keep things relatively simple but as you can see I got caught up with my layers.  The dragonfly is stamped in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White then die cut.  Then layered onto Gold Metallic Thread and then onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cut with a circle from the Stitched Framelits.  I then stamped the Whisper White rectangle layer with the dotted image from Dragonfly Dreams in So Saffron.  The sentiment also from Dragonfly Dreams is stamped on the So Saffron card base in So Saffron.  For an added bit of sparkle I used Clear Wink of Stella on the Dragonfly Wings, it's a bit hard to see in the photo but it sparkles prettily.
