Circle Saying Bundle.


Hello stamping friends. I have another new bundle to share with you today. The Circle Sayings Bundle includes a stamp set and a punch. The punch is a 2 3/8" circle, which I'm sure will be a popular addition to many stamper's stashes. I'm sure you understand what I mean...
The wave image for the first card has been coloured with Blends Markers.

For the second card I also coloured the cupcake with Blends Markers. The colours are Sweet Sorbet, Pecan Pie and Bubble Bath.

For the next card I stamped the image in Pebbled Path ink and was coloured with Water Painters. The colours used to colour this card are Pebbled Path, Moody Mauve and Boho Blue. Behind the image I used two short pieces of Pebbled Path Textured Ribbon and the background was die cut with the Dots& Spots Dies.

For the last card I coloured three cupcakes with Blends Markers using the colours from the Bright and Beautiful DSP. The greeting was stamped in Berry Burst ink on Bubble Bath card stock.

Another great bundle from the new catalogue. I sure I will use this one a lot, especially the circle punch.

These products are available in the new catalogue from the 2nd of May. If you would like a copy of the new catalogue and do not already have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, contact me and I will post one to you.

Thanks for visiting,

Beautiful Balloons Bundle


 Hello stampers. I'm very excited to share one of the new bundles from the 2023-2024 Annual Catalogue, Beautiful Balloons.

This versatile bundle can be used for a range of themes and celebrations. I have used a combination of dies and stamps, as well as the co ordinating DSP Bright and Beautiful, to make these cards.

The first card features one of the returning colours, Berry Burst, with highlights of Bubble Bath and Fresh Freesia.

The background DSP is a piece from the Bright and Beautiful paper pack.

The next card uses a couple of the new blues in the colour range. The blues are Misty Moonlight and Azure Afternoon and are both in the Bright and Beautiful paper pack.

Again a couple of strips of Bright and Beautiful are behind the main image.

The black and gold card uses one of the Beautiful Balloon dies and the streamer stamp from the Beautiful Balloons stamp set.

A couple of the balloons were cut from discontinued Silver and Gold DSP and sponged black with Memento Black ink and a Sponge Dauber. The top balloon was stamped with the balloon stamp then heat embossed with gold emboss powder.

The last two gold balloons are cut from Distressed Gold Paper and Gold Foil Paper. I added the balloon strings with a Black Marker.

The last card has balloons stamped in Lemon Lime Twist, Lemon Lolly, Bubble Bath, Azure Afternoon and Fresh Freesia. 

Once again the colours co ordinated with a piece of Bright and Beautiful DSP and some Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon.

I hope I have inspired you to have a play with this wonderful set. Come back soon for more new catalogue ideas.

If you live in Melbourne you are very welcome to join my catalogue launch on the 6th of May, contact me for more details.

Colour Creations Blog Hop week 50 - Soft Suede Friendly Gnomes


Hello stampers, we have come to the end of our Colour Creation blog hops for this Stampin' Up! year. For week 50 we are featuring Soft Suede, a medium brown colour that unfortunately is being discontinued at the end of April.
For tonight's card I have used the Friendly Gnomes Stamp set and the co ordinating dies.

I love sepia look photos and thought that the Soft Suede colour would be perfect for this effect. I inked the stamps first in Versamark ink and then immediately into Soft Suede ink, before stamping on to Shimmery White card stock. I heat Embossed with Clear Emboss Powder to create a water proof outline for the images.

The images were coloured with Soft Suede ink and Water Colour Painters, in different intensities. I also coloured a few extra flowers from the gnomes beard to use as extra embellishments.

The circles were cut using Stylish Shapes Dies as was the piece of Fancy Flora DSP.

The greeting was stamped in Soft Suede ink with the edge of the circle sponged with a sponge dauber.

Unfortunately many of the Stampin' Up! Products used to make this card are retiring and will only be available until sold out or the end of April. The links for all products are listed below.

Now it's time to see what Rachel Palmieri has to share with us.

If you encounter any issues with the links in our hop please head to Cathy Proctor's blog as she is the fabulous host of our Colour Creations Blog Hops and has a complete list of tonight's participants.

For the second card I used Pool Party, Cool Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point.
