It’s a case…

So we’re still stamping by the sea (ocean)…still enjoying the company of like-minded talented and creative people.  Still enjoying time to just *be*. You know? No running after kiddies, no sorting life shizzle out.  Bliss.

So anyway as part of the weekend I did make quite a number of cards and some of those were cased from others as well as the catalogue.  The first card here today is a case of a card Nicole made.

I used one of my new favourite stamps – Gorgeous Grunge and the happy Yippee Skippee stamps which have some great sentiments.  I love this one!! You can never have too much happy is fabulous!!!

Next card is a direct case of the current Catalogue. The only difference is that I didn’t use a doiley but the doiley die and I changed up the colours a bit.

Happy Stamping!

Oh my Giddy Aunt!! I’m here again!!!

Don’t faint or fall down.  THREE DAYS IN A ROW!!! It’s scary huh???  Don’t worry, I won’t be making it four days as i’m heading down south for a lovely few days with my stamping friend Nicole Derendorf. Yay!!

But before I go!!! Here are some more lovelies to feast your eyeballs upon!!!

_MG_8311 (Copy)This one was made using my cutter and I just took out the square from the middle…you could just use a square framelit in the position you wanted and get the same effect.  The little chevrons are from the HEXAGON PUNCH!!! Oh yes. That’s right!! The Hexagon punch. I love that thing!!!

_MG_8297 (Copy)This card came about from another demonstrator who had posted a Black, White and Yellow card.  I really need to get an alignment tool for my bling though huh???  Didn’t look so bad…until I took a picture!! LOL

And so there you have it!!  A couple of cards to tide you over!! I’m hoping to get VERY creative in the next few days so here’s to some more blogging next week!!!

Until then,
Happy sunshiney stamping!!!



July! Already?!

How can it be July already???!! The year is flying by and my resolution to post regularly has flown away with it.  Whoops.  Lucky, I’m sure, that no-one is coming in here on a regular basis, hanging around by themselves!! LOL.  You can find me more regularly on Facebook ———> See over to the right there, click on over and catch up with me there a bit more.  It does seem to be a bit easier to post stuff there!!


I *have* been creating!!!  I had the New Stampin’ Up! Catalogue launch last week and the ladies got to make some cards and have a play with lovely new products!!  Want to see some of what we did?? All right!! lol

This card was made with the lovely new In Colours – Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana and Baked Brown Sugar. Nom.  Makes me hungry!!! I also used the Chalk Talk Stamp set and framelits and the new Clay and molds to create the flower. The embossing folder is the new Modern Mosaic. Lovely isn’t it?

The next card uses the gorgeous Sketched Birthday set.  Again I’ve used the Framelits from the Chalk talk bundle (tag behind the cake image) and I’ve used the Banner framelits as well.  The designer series paper is new and is called Birthday Basics.  I love it. It’s got some awesome patterns and colours!!!

The next card the lovely ladies made uses a few different new sets.  Firstly the sentiment is from the Label Love set.  It has a great co-ordinating Punch called the Artisan label punch.  You can purchase the stamps and punch as a great bundle as well and save yourself 15%!!  The other stamps used are the Mosaic Madness and Gorgeous Grunge stamps.  The ribbon is the new and delicious 3/4″ Chevron in Crushed Curry.

So there you have it.  Even though you may not “see” me posting in here, I have been stamping!!!

Until next time,
Happy Stamping!
