Stamper’s Anonymous Blog Hop #63

It is good to be back creating again after my overseas trip. This month we have Tic Tac Toe. I have chosen to use the middle line – embossing folder, Dies or punches and rhinestones or embellishments. I chose Painted Lavender as the focus of the card and used the colours Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, […]

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 […]

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 […]
