Totally Trees | #WWYS88

It's that time again, What Will You Stamp? and this week we are showcasing Totally Trees. 


There are so many options of what you can create with this set - it has images as well as stamps to create a coloured background, and as it is a photopolymer set  it is so easy to line up where you are stamping.  I've created for a Christmas themed card as I know that special day will be here before I know it! 
It's no secret that I love layers in my projects, and today's is not exception. My project today was super easy, and it came together in no time at all - layers are a great way to give a simple card a little wow factor.


This card would be a great project to make in bulk for cards to give to work colleagues or teachers at school.

Here is what you need to make this card:

Card base: 9.9 cm x  19.8 cm, then folded in half
Layer 1 : 9cm square
Layer 2: 8.5 cm square
Layering Ovals Framelits Dies
Totally TreesStamp set
Sentiment of your choice - I've used Star of Light

Tip - cut your s…

Labeler Aplhabet | #WWYS87

How fast the weeks fly, it's What Will You Stamp time - this week we are show casing the versatile Labeler Alphabet set

You can create your own sentiments to your hearts content with this set - I've just entered my "must plan to be organised for Christmas" phase, so I've made mini gift tags using the set for my project

I used Cookie Cutter Christmas for Santa and Rudolph and colours with Aqua Painters and embossed part of the background with Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, then a little bling of gold twine from the Baker's Twine Trio Pack.

I couldn't help myself with the pun, and just had to add one of the Mini Jingle Bells!

Cookie Cutter Halloween | #WWYS86

Welcome to What will you Stamp, this week we are showcasing the fun Cookie Cutter Halloween set!



Halloween isn't a huge celebration in Australia, but my daughter has been asking questions and made mention of celebrations a few times, so I decided that this year I would prepare some treat bags for the occasion - I am so glad I decided to use this set, it is adorably cute, so much so it's hard for me to pick my favourite!

I made the treat bags using the brown paper that our Big Brown Boxes are packed with, woo hoo recycling! I cut them using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies, my daughter planned the stamped image to co-ordinate with the cookie cutter image, then we popped some treats in, folded the top and bound with bakers twine - too cute!
I used white embossing powder for skeleton, and threw in some Pumpkin Pie for the background and treat bag stamping

Tuesday night is mummy-daughter movie night with takeaway dinner, recently we watched Hotel Transylvania, so I had plenty of c…

Paisley and Posies - the journey begins

Don't you just love trying a new stamp set for the first time! I've finally had a chance to break out the Paisleys and Posies Bundle, and I am so impressed, dare I say it,..... it may just be my new favourite!


I couldn't pass up the Colour Challenge this week at the Global Design Project
likewise with the awesome sketch at Freshly Made Sketches

Challenges are such a good may to open you mind to create, they can can also give you the gentle push step outside your comfort zone, whether it be with colour or layout - both of these challenges grabbed my eye, I adore the colour combination, and love layering so I was in my element!
I changed the layout a tad, moving the banner element to the side so that the lovely paisley flowers could feature vertically, I combined 2 stamps to create the feature with the lovely sentiment from the Paisleys & Posies Bundle


I decided to use Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder for my stamping, how amazing does the the detail in these stamps look! I…

Foxy Friends Shadow Box

I just love the Foxy Friends stamp set, and love creating 3D projects like this - so why not combine both of these to create a special card! 


The Endless Birthday Wishes set is fantastic for a variety of sentiments, I think the font is a perfect accompaniment for Foxy Friends.At first glance this looks like a normal card, but wait it so much more! Can you see that the middle section is a 3D frame:


Here is a better view, how adorable is this! It is like the photo frame but made from card stock. I've also used the A Little Foxy A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack on the inside of the card.


This Shadow Box card was inspired by Juana and Kim's creations - click on their name to see their projects.

I came across Seize the Birthday challenge blog in my travels, and this card is perfect for this week's "anything goes" challenge

Ghoulish Grunge | #WWYS84

Welcome to What will you Stamp, this week we are showcasing Ghoulish Grunge.  


This set has some amazing backgrounds, and they can be used for so much more than just Halloween, just look at my project - nothing Ghoulish about it at all!



How amazing is that brick background from Ghoulish Grunge, I love the rustic feel. I've also used 3 of the 2015-2017 In Colours for my project, Tip Top Taupe for the background, with  Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder, then added a pop of So Saffron for the yellow using the amazing Botanical Builder Framelits Dies to create my flowers.

I'd love to see what you can create with Ghoulish Grunge this week - to see all the great projects from the Design Team and to participate in this weeks challenge at What Will You Stamp? click here
