Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #5

As I prepare to head off to Sharon’s first Stamp Camp this weekend, I realised that my card had to be up on Sunday so, in the midst of a busy week, I decided to do a very simple card. The brief this time was a sketch and I decided to do some very simple […]

Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #3

I was a little concerned about signing up for this blog as I was unsure what I should do and was struggling to get inspiration!! As I thought about the brief – using three of the ribbon colours, basic black and whisper white, I remembered this beautiful Botanical Butterfly  DSP.  This sheet is so pretty […]

January Project: Day 31: His Grace

When I saw this Stamp set in the Occasions Catalogue, I fell in love with it immediately. I see lots of uses for this in my card ministry to others. This is one of the new Cling Stamps and I love the way the stay firmly on the block while you stamp. I carefully life […]

January Project: Day 30: Needlepoint Nook

I bought this after seeing it demonstrated at OnStage in Melbourne. I am an avid embroiderer and love making all sorts of handcrafts so it appealed to me. The Needlepoint Nook DSP looks like it is 3D. The dies are beautiful. Some of them have a lovely stitched look like the one I used this […]

Thanks to Melissa’s Crafting Treehouse I was inspired to try this one. The card is created on Silver […]

January Project: Day 26: So Hoppy Together

Happy Australia Day to all my friends!! Maybe I should say ‘Hoppy Australia Day!’ Having used ‘Lilypad Lake’ for my blog yesterday, I had an idea for using the ‘So Hoppy Together’ set for my next card and combining it with Lakeside Framelit Dies and the lily pad from ‘Lilypad Lake’. The ‘So Hoppy Together’ […]

January Project: Day 25: Lilypad Lake

I have had this set for quite some time but have never used it. I think it was a Prize Patrol gift at On Stage. The results of my card making were exciting and I want to try a few different techniques. I went on Pinterest to try and get some inspiration for using it […]

January Project: Day 24: Just Because

‘Just Because’ is a host stamp set that I received with an order I placed from the Occasions Catalogue. I made 7 X 7 cm cards from one piece of Whisper white cardstock and stamped on the front of each card. I masked off the sentiment on each one, as I only wanted the picture. […]
