Blooms of Heartfelt Sympathy

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a sympathy card using the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set from the Saleabration brochure, which you can select for FREE with any $90 order!

It is never easy to create a sympathy card when you need one, but having some on hand makes the journey so much easier when it is required. So today, I have this quick and easy card for that very occasion.

This card is 4¼” x 4¼” in Rich Razzleberry, layered with Whisper White.

Look at the detail in this stamp!!!! When I opened the stamp case, I took one look at this floral stamp and thought it was so flat and wouldn’t have very much detail, it even felt  flat and smooth to touch, but I was so glad to be proven wrong. Check it out!

The images are stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink and then I coloured it lightly with my Watercolour Pencils. Oh and I adore the font in the sentiment, it is so pretty!

Designer Paper isn’t just for cards and scrapbooking!

Hello Friends,

Did you know that Stampin’ Up! is not all about cardmaking and scrapbooking, but we can make many other crafty projects too? Well today’s project features the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. #cutitnothoardit

I don’t know about you, but here in Australia it has been very cold and we are welcoming any sort of warmer weather now that it is the beginning of Spring, and what better way to celebrate, than with this stunning Designer Paper.

How pretty are these?!!!

What a great gift idea these would make for Mother’s Day, Birthday’s or even as a special Thank You or Happy Retirement gift. They are very easy to make if you have the right tools and a little creativity.

Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, Washi Tape

Card for the coffee addict!

Hello Friends,

My project today uses the Coffee Cafe stamp set and coordinating Coffee Cups Framelits dies, and the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper. #cutitnothoardit

I made this card for one of my closest friends for her birthday last week. We try to get together weekly for coffee, so I thought this was kind of appropriate 😉

Angela also loves blue, so what better colours to use than Soft Sky, teamed with browns with white.

I love this coordinating Designer paper and the new Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape, which you can see two thin strips of the gold; one across the centre of the ribbon and the other on the coffee cup.

The inside of the card has this sentiment from the Special Celebrations stamp set.

How cool is it that the images on the Designer Series Paper can also be die cut with the coordinating dies!!! I love this new feature of Stampin’ Up!

The sequins on the inside are the old 2013-2015 In Colour sequin pack, but they actually coordinate quite well with the colours in this DSP!

The large letter framelits were used to create the negative image for the front of the card, creating the shaker section…. but I also used the positive images for the inside of the card! No waste in this house!!!! lol

The sentiment, Happy Mother’s Day is from the Crazy About You stamp set and the flowers stamped on the MUM dies cuts is from brand new Colourful Seasons stamp set.

Birthday, Kids Cards, Punch Art, Stampin' Up!

Meerkat birthday

Dear Crafters,

Today I just have to share with you a card that my 10 year old daughter made for her friend’s birthday on Wednesday. Our initial conversation was that her friend loves Meerkats and my instant reaction was, how the heck do we do that???! Anyway, this is what she created all by herself and I am so proud of her!
