One Step at a Time with Thoughtful Branches

I can't believe how amazing the Thoughtful Branches bundle is!  This is my first play with this set, and I just love how my card turned out.


I made this card with the #frommetoyouwhenyourefeelingblu movement Petra Tailor from the Crazy Crafters has started - it is such a wonderful idea to make and send a handmade card to someone you how is having a difficult time. After all, some days all of us need to take things one step at a time to get to the end of the day, and it is amazing how even a thoughtful comment from a total stranger can help us get through these days; so just image how the surprise of receiving a handmade card can make someone you care about feel makes you feel.

My colour inspiration came from a trip to Mt Lofty in the Adelaide Hills a few months ago, the beautiful autumn colours just look amazing when stamped with this new set.

    2. Did you use the baby wipe technique to stamp the leaves?

      Delete
    3. I used sponge daubers to apply the different colours on the leaves then stamped. I found working with the lightest colour first, or from the centre out to the edge worked best

All Star Tutorial Blog Hop

Not only is today the monthly All Star Blog Hop, but it is also the launch day of Sale-A-Bration and the Mini Catalogue, wow what a busy day!

Do you ever get caught up in the detail, and before you know it hours have past and all you really wanted was a quick card? That is me all to often,but today card came together quickly and it's perfect for a masculine birthday event too!

Who would have thought with just a strip of Birthday Bonanza Designer Series paper, a sentiment from Bonanza Buddies (from the new Mini Catalogue) you could have a gorgeously masculine card in a jiffy!

I raised card front layer using some corrugated embossed cardstock for a little mow impact, the DSP is adhered directly to the card base, here's the side view


Lastly add some sequins to celebrate the happy day = card is complete!


Yes, it's a simple design, but less can be more on some days, hahaha (I don't have many of those days when it comes to card making).

Say it with Stars... Happy Birthday

I've had a crafty orientated day today in between weekend household chores, after delivering catalogues, and in between multiple loads of washing & cooking I played with part of my So Many Stars bundle..... being the Stitched Stars dies (23 in the set, spoiilt for choice, woot!)

These dies were perfect for the Global Design Project theme this week:


I started by stamping my birthday sentiment, then placed 3 of the star dies (the 3 smaller detailed stars) in position and ran through the Big Shot, then re-positioned and worked by way along the edge of the card, cutting 7 in total - perfect for a rainbow of colour.


I used 2 of the stitched stars to cut the colours, then placed them behind the card front and popped up on dimensionals, lastly mounting the card front on a Thick Whisper White card base, and there you have it, a fun Children's birthday card!



Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more inspiration and tips this month. If you liv…

Peony Garden All Star Blog Hop

Happy Friday and welcome to the new look All Star Tutorial Team. Today we have more projects featuring the gorgeous Peony Garden Suite.

After a few crazy busy weeks at my not so 9 to 5 day job, some colour therapy was needed; I find colouring relaxes me and helps me unwind, how about you?



I used light & dark Highland Heather & Old Olive Stampin' Blends, then added Light Pool Party around the edge of the images - all the time using the Color Lifter to help blend the colours to my liking.



To finish I added a strip of Basic Black cardstock and some black ink splatters. Continue through the list below to see more creations from the design team:
