Sugarplum Sweetness

Dear Crafters,

Oh my, how I do love this colour combination of Sweet Sugarplum and Very Vanilla!

Floral Phrases, Detailed Floral Thinlits, #stampinup, Thank you, 2016, #stampinupaustralia, Feminine Handmade Card, DIY

I have needed to make some thank you cards for some very special people who have been very supportive in helping me out since I had ankle surgery over 4 weeks ago now. I am starting to get up and walk again, but its a huge process. I certainly have a real empathy for those who struggle with any form of disability with the legs. I still have a cast on, but have a special shoe that I wear over the cast to be able to put some weight on it. Anyway, enough of me, lets get back to this stunning card!

I cut a piece of sweet sugarplum card down to fit inside the base card, before using the Detailed Floral Thinlits to die cut the floral images at both ends on the big shot machine using the precision plate. To get all the intricate bits out, I used the new die brush! This was adhered with Tombo Multipurpose Glue.

The sentiment was stamped and punched out with the Word Window punch.

I even stamped a coordinating image on the inside of the card and on the back of the envelope.

Bright Florals

Dear Crafters,

Today I use the brand new Detailed Floral thinlits dies, another of my must have on my first annual catalogue order!

Detailed Floral Thinlits, 2016-2018 In Colour Markers, Floral Phrases, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade card, Stampin Up 2016

I started by die cutting the black card with the thinlits and glued them to the top and bottom of the card, then stamped the sentiment and added the enamel dot.

Using the new 2016-2018 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers, I coloured all the flowers and leaves. Because the borders of the thinlits are black, it doesn’t matter how well you colour in as it doesn’t show on the black card!

Flowers, Stampin' Up!, Sympathy, Thinlits Dies

You’re in my thoughts

Dear Crafters,

It is always tough to come up with a card design for someone who may have lost a loved one, so I always like to have some on hand to be able to grab when required.

Today, I share a card using the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits die.

I have used Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White, purple being the colour of love and I think it is lovely in this sympathy card.

Notice I have glued the heart die cut behind the top layer, framing part of the heart but also so it gives that gorgeous shadow behind once the layer is adhered with dimensionals.

Always remember to stamp the envelope and the inside of your cards!

Christmas Cutie

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card using some more of the brand new goodies from the Holiday Catalogue!! Be sure to get a copy or view it online now!!! You won’t be disappointed!

The Season of Cheer Designer Washi Tape is so quick and easy to use and helps to create cards in no time. The Home for Christmas Enamel Dots are adhesive backed, which make them super quick to add.

The image is stamped with the new black archival ink pad which is perfect for use with watercolouring techniques.

Christmas Cuties #stampinup

I used the brand new Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set and the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies to create the sentiment. The die was glued on with the new Fine Tip Glue Pen, which is super amazing for adding small embellishments like these!

Christmas Cuties #stampinup

I coloured the image with Stampin’ Write Markers.

Christmas, Thinlits Dies

I’m back!

Well hello lovely stampers,

We are back from our wonderful holiday to Phuket, Thailand. I hope you enjoyed the few photos we posted on facebook while we were away. You wouldn’t believe that we took over 900 photos, so there will be lots of Scrapbooking in the near future!

It’s great to be home and able to stamp again!

The new Expressions Thinlits Dies (from the Holiday Catalogue) got a work out this morning and they are wonderful. I was a little worried about easy they were going to release from the die, but they are fantastic. They sure will become a feature on many cards.

I started with this Christmas card using the thinlits and the frosted finishes embellishment with the Winter Frost DSP.

I love this Venetian Romance DSP pack of papers. I have also used the expressions thinlits using multipurpose adhesive sheets and silver glitter over the heart from the Hearts a Flutter Stamp and Die Set.

These are just a taste of what I have been working on and will have plenty more to share with you in the coming weeks.

Happy stamping,
