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 […]

January Project: Day 28: Tarnished Foil

This was another technique that I used in a workshop with Marelle Taylor. I used some Silver Foil and gently swiped the Basic Black inked over it. Once it was dry, I used a butterfly embossing folder – not SU – to emboss the foil. I then used some Versamark ink to lightly rub some […]

January Project: Day 27: Black Ice technique

A few months ago I attended a workshop on the Black Ice technique with Marelle Taylor and have been keen to try it again. In the meantime I have been looking on Pinterest for inspiration and ideas. 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. […]

January Project: Day 23: Incredible like You

Both of these cards were CASED from Pinterest. The first card is one by Karen Hallam. Thank you Karen for inspiring me! I used Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green and Whisper White for this card. The background was stamped in Granny Apple Green using the ‘Incredible like You’ stamp set, but stamped off first. I […]

January Project: Day 22: Hello Cupcake

The ‘Hello Cupcake’ stamp set is free when you make a purchase of $90 from Stampin Up. The first card was stamped in Balmy Blue and Flirty Flamingo. I mounted it on Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheet. This foil is amazing as it has a holographic feel to it depending on where the light hits it. […]

January Project: Day 21: Healing hugs

I used this stamp Healing Hugs for the first time at Stamp Camp last year. It comes from the Annual Catalogue and is one of the ‘DistINKtive’ stamps. It gives a beautiful 3D rose and leaves. I decided to make three cards with this – two using the same colours – Berry Burst and Pink […]
