Celebrate Amazing You for another Silver Promotion!

Dear Crafters,

Wow, it’s the last day of April, where is this year going?!! I need time to slow down so we can enjoy the last month of the current Annual catalogue and the Occasions catalogue before they are gone. Plus, today I have another team member who has promoted to Silver this month!

Here is the gift I made for Andrea, who has promoted to Silver! I am so proud of her and all of her achievements.

I made these Silver earrings using the Petal Passion Embellishments. Then I made this gift holder using the Envelope punch board and put the earrings inside. When you open it up, the earrings slide up. The silver ribbon is retired, but it was perfect for my project, as was the Sale-a-bration Springtime Foils Specialty DSP.

I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut the Dapper Denim circle (one of Andrea’s favourite retiring colours). The sentiment is stamped in Smoky Slate ink. The Petal Palette Bundle is carrying over, however you would be advised to get it now as a bundle and save the extra 10% then you could add that saving towards these stunning embellishments!

Blog Hop/Creative Showcase, Gift Ideas, Stampin' Up!

Occasions & Sale-a-bration AWHT Blog Hop

art-with-heart-imageDear Crafters,

Seasonal Catalogue and also Sale-a-bration! If you place an order with me during Sale-a-bration, you can choose a free item with every $90 you spend in one transaction. There are lots of fabulous free items to choose from (ask me for a brochure and an Occasions Catalogue) and the promotion goes right through until 31st March.

Better still, become part of our awesome fun, friendly and supportive Art With Heart team. We have a really large team Australia wide that has been around since Stampin’ Up! came to Australia. We have a very active team forum and also have in person stamp days, challenges, card swaps, product shares and more.

You also get free postage! It’s quick and easy to join online too. Ask me about joining today.

Now let’s get into showing you what you can make with the great new products in the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues.

You have come to my blog from the very talented, Judy May.

For my projects, I have used the Carousel Birthday Stamp Set, Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper and the Any Occasion stamp set (FREE Sale-a-bration item).


Are you wondering what is in that box? Well, read on to find out!


This 4″ x 4″ card uses the gorgeous Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series paper stack and the coordinating Carousel Birthday Stamp set. The card base is Calypso Coral with a piece of the DSP. I’ve used the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies for the oval. The Bermuda Bay Stitched satin ribbon goes so well with this DSP pack.


The horse was stamped on Very Vanilla card and fussy cut. It’s coloured with the new Watercolour Pencils and mounted to the oval with Dimensionals.

Now for the Box! This was a trial and error project, to come up with the correct size for gift inside! Instructions for this will be listed below.



I stamped the images onto White Tissue Paper and coloured it with the Watercolour Pencils, then added it to the candle using my heat gun and some baking paper. I was surprised at how well it transferred!!!

Here’s a close up!


And here is the little tag I made for the front of the box, using the oval die cut from the window section of the gift box! I also used the same Any Occasion stamp set for this sentiment.


So if you purchased the Carousel Birthday stamp set, DSP and framelits, you can then choose the Any Occasion stamp set for FREE! What a great offer.

I reckon this makes a lovely happy birthday gift set for that someone special in your life.


Here’s how I made the box:
I started with a piece of card measuring 9-1/8″ x 8-1/4″.
Score on long edge at 2″ & 7-1/8″, rotate 90 degrees and score at 2″, 4″, 6″ & 8″.
Cut away sections below.


Place it in the Big Shot with the Stitched Framelit Oval. Fold in the 2 flaps before putting the top plate on so it fits through the machine.


I placed a piece of acetate behind the oval and using scissors, cut up each of the two centre score lines to the first fold, then you can glue the box together and decorate as desired!


Thanks for visiting today.

Flower Patch with a twist!

Hello Crafters,

First of all today, I want to wish my gorgeous girl, Annika a very happy 8th birthday. I can’t believe we are so blessed to have had you for 2920 days in our lives already!

To commemorate this special day, I wanted to share with you some of her favourite colours and they can be found on one very beautiful bird that I grew up with in our neighbourhood living so close to the Cataract Gorge in Launceston, Tasmania.

No, I don’t live in Tassie anymore, but I still have the most vivid memories as a child growing up in such a gorgeous environment and these stunning birds wandering around.

Yes, it is the peacock!

Flower Patch Peacock

I have created this using the Flower Patch Stamp Set and the Flower Fair framelits dies which can be purchased as bundle saving you a huge 15%.

I also used the Owl punch.

I should have photographed him before I put it into the frame to stop the glare off the glass, but I think you can see him clearly enough.

Flower Patch Peacock

I used Pool Party as the base of the feathers, then Pistachio Pudding then Bermuda Bay. The body of the peacock is Pacific Point cardstock and I sponged the edges with the same colour ink and a sponge dauber. The circles are punched from Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake and a Pacific Point heart with a tiny Bermuda Bay dot.


Rhinestones were added to the feathers for a bit of bling as these birds are such a showy animal!

Please leave a message to let me know what you think of my design.


The Annual Catalogue is full of amazing new products and wonderful coloured pictures for inspiration. It is a must have for anyone interested in Ink, Paper and Stamps!
