Cookie Cutter Christmas

Hi Everyone, have you ever made a card and liked it so much you just kept on creating with the same stamp set and colour scheme. This happened to me today when I created my card for the Retro Sketches challenge based on this great sketch.


As I still needed a few extra Christmas Cards I decided to use the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch for my card.


The other items used are the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set, Christmas Greetings Thinlits, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Triple Banner Punch, Real Red Stitche Edge Ribbon, Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine, Candy Cane Land Designer Series Paper, Silver Glimmer Paper, Real Red and Basic Black Stampin' Write Markers, Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper, Washing Tape and small stars left over from the Tin of Tags Kit and Cardstock Basic Black, Whisper White and Real Red.

Check back tomorrow to see the other projects that I have made with the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.


Thank you for visiting.

Falling Flowers

Hi everyone, I am playing along this week with Freshly Made Sketches.  

For my card I have used the Falling Flowers, Gorgeous Grunge and Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp sets along with Layering Circles, Stitched Shapes and May Flowers Framelits dies.

The flowers were water coloured with Sweet Sugarplum and Pink Pirouette for the petals and the flower centres coloured with Daffodil Delight and Delightful Dijon with the leaves cut from Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  Some Black Metallic Thread was added behind the circle and some Fancy Frost Sequins added to finish.


You can get all the supplies you need for this project from me.

You can place an order online and join in the fun with the On-line Club or Contact Me and place an order.

Sending Smiles Across the Miles

Hi everyone, as promised another card using the new stamp set 'Lift Me Up' and the coordinating 'Up & Away' Thinlits.


I have been a bit tardy in sending some birthday cards recently so I have made this one to send to a special friend.  I love the sentiment 'Sending Smiles Across the Miles' and I thought it was perfect for a belated birthday card.

I created the scene with sponging the sky in Soft Sky (Note: the Thinlits have a large cloud image that is just the thing for sponging around to create the clouds in the sky).  The hills I made by creating a template from a piece of scrap paper as a mask and then sponging Smoky Slate.  The pine trees are from the long lasting stamp set 'Lovely as a Tree", I stamped the trees in Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green and Always Artichoke.


Don't forget the inside of the card.  I stampe the clouds using Soft Sky in the bottom corner and created a couple of extra balloons to add over the clouds.

Thank you for visiting.

Up & Away

Hi everyone, sharing a sneak peak at the new stamp set 'Lift Me Up' and the coordinating Thinlits 'Up & Away'.  I was so excited when I first saw this stamp set and thinlits showcased by Shannon West at the OnStage Live event in Brisbane.

For my card today I cased Shannon as I love the layout and colour scheme used.  I have another card coming tomorrow using the same stamp set and thinlits.


You will be able to order these products from me on 4 January 2017 when the new Occasions Catalogue is launched.

Thank you for visiting.

Another Christmas Card

Hi everyone, sharing a Christmas Card using the This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper, Peaceful Pines and stamp set and the coordinating Perfect Pines Framelits.


I had used this Designer Series Paper pack in my Christmas in July class and had several sheets of my least favourite pattern left (this usually happens to me, I use all the sheets of paper that I really like and leave the others in the pack).  I designed this card for a fundraiser to support my workplace Cancer Council Relay for Life Team.

I used this card along with the four cards in the Christmas in July class and packaged them up to sell in sets of 5.  I got 43 requests for packs so I have had to make 215 Christmas Cards (needless to say it has taken me a few weeks). It has been worth it raising $344 for the team.

Thank you for visiting.

Dragonfly Dreams

Hi everyone, I was a bit excited when I got home from work today and found my Product Purchase Premiere Stampin' Up! order on my doorstep.  Naturally I had to have a little play.


I have used a new stamp set 'Dragonfly Dreams' and the matching 'Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits' available in the Occasions Catalogue from 4 January 2017.

I stamped the 1st Dragonfly image with Basic Black Archival ink and then stamped the 2nd image using Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay ink and the rock-n-roll technique.  The background on the square Shaped Framelit was stamped using the dot image stamp and Soft Sky ink.  The card base is Bermuda Bay and the sentiment from the same stamp set is stamp using Basic Black Archival ink.

You can get the supplies to make this card from me come 4 January 2017 when the new Occasions Catalogue is available.

Thank you for visiting.

Embossed Foil

Hi everyone, in late October I attended a Stamp Camp held by a good friend of mine where I was shown how to do this technique of embossing foil and adding Copper & Gold Embossing Powder along with some Black Stazon ink.


I have used a Kraft card base with a piece of Basic Black cardstock layered on top.  A little Copper Embossing was added to the background of the card, with a silver doily and some silver stars added in keeping with the metallic theme.  

You can get all the supplies you need for this project from me.

You can place an order online and join in the fun with the On-line Club or Contact Me and place an order.
