Flourishing Phrases for Stampin Friends


Welcome to the September Stampin Friends Blog Hop, this month is celebrating Fall. Whilst it's not Autumn in Australia, the weather is still very changeable in Adelaide, so whilst it is officially Spring it feels just like when Autumn comes to stay - I can't wait for it to warm up a bit, the sun to shine for more than a couple of days before it rains again.

As you would know I love pink, so Autumn colours can be a challenge with yellows and oranges - not in my "go-to" range, but combined with a little Fresh Fig, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie are just amazing!




I love the Flourish Thinlet dies that co-ordinate with Flourishing Phrases, don't you just adore the little belly band on the candle, so simple and easy to do, and it makes a complete package with the card.

There are so many sentiments in the Flourishing Phrases set it is hard to choose, it's a great set to have on hand as it covers off so many occasions. I decided on a simple phrase that can be used to Thank You or even just a Hello. I used sponge daubers to create a shading effect on the sentiment, it looks so pretty going from light to dark and ties in beautifully with the cluster of die cut leaves.

Delicate Lace with Magnolia Lane

Well hello Saturday! What a long week that was, so happy to creative today, it feels like it's been ages! To get me in the mood I went to my favourite challenge blogs for some inspiration, and I chose this sketch:


For today's creation I've mixed some old with the new - Delicate Lace edge dies with Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. I decided to turn the sketch on the side, it seemed to show of the lovely flowers better.



This DSP is just gorgeous, a mix of floral and stripes all using a beautiful colour palette - yes, it did have me with pink, but honestly if you replaced pink with a purple or yellow it would still be an amazing DSP.




Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more inspiration and tips this month. If you live in Australia and don't already have a demonstrator I'd love love to be yours.

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).
