Stamper’s Anonymous Blog Hop #60

A layout challenge was our project this month. I had bought the DSP ‘One Horse Open Sleigh’ from the Online Exclusive, but had not used it. When I saw our challenge for this month I immediately thought of this paper and with Christmas coming up, it was a great one to choose! It shows that […]

O Holy Night

Christmas is a special time of year and, when I see the title of this blog, I am reminded of Christmases past when we would sing this carol around the piano at home. When Stampin’ Ups brought out this suite in their mini catalogue, I was immediately drawn to it. I loved the whole suite […]

Stamper’s Anonymous Blog Hop #59

This month we had a colour challenge using the colours Blackberry Bliss, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive. They are very reminiscent of Autumn , but my card has a touch of late Summer about it!! I used the Dainty Delight stamp set. I do love this set and the versatility of it and have used […]

Seasonal Branches

A few months ago I bought ‘Seasonal Branches’. It has been sitting on the shelf and I have been looking for inspiration to use it. An ex-student of mine and her twin sister are about to start their HSC, so I thought I might pull it out and see what I could do. I used […]

Casing the Mini Catalogue (with a twist!)

I fell in love with the Winter Meadow suite as soon as I saw it in the catalogue and was not disappointed when it arrived. The colours are so beautiful. I loved what they had done with the ‘quilted style’ card on Page 36 of the catalogue, but again wanted to add my own touch […]

Fun Birthday Cards with Zany Zoo

While I was at the retreat a few weeks ago, I took out my Zany Zoo DSP and stamp set and decided to make lots of cards with them. This is a very cute set in the Annual Catalogue. Some are cased from online (Pinterest) and modified, adding my own creative design. I teach piano […]

Stamper’s Anonymous Blog Hop #58

This month our challenge was a layout. I decided to use a combination of three stamp sets – Magical Meadow, Go to Greetings and Irresistible Blooms. Magical Meadow, although marketed as a Christmas stamp set, could be used throughout the year. In fact I have set myself a challenge to create a Christmas card and […]

Everlasting Beauty

About four months ago I was a my Upline’s retreat. For the camp, I had created a card for a shoebox (the colloquial name we give projects that we prepare for those at camp to create). The new catalogue had not long been released and I fell in love with ‘Cheerful Daisies’ on my first […]

Translucent Florals

About two months ago, we had ‘Creativity Now’ – an online crafting day. The stamp set we used was Translucent Florals. This is a beautiful stamp set and accompanying dies and works well on Basic White Cardstock or Vellum. I wanted to make some gifts for friends for a retreat I am going to and […]

Artistically Inked

I have been very lax in getting up blogs and posts in these past few months. This has mainly due to feeling unwell for several months and not having energy to think about being creative!! Hopefully I am over that and able to fulfil the challenge that I have set myself – posting each week! […]
