We Must Celebrate | Kelly's Stampin Friends Birthday Blog Hop

Happy Birthday Kelly!!!! I hope you are having an amazing day! I'm here today with many other Stamping Friends to celebrate Kelly Kent's birthday and I can' wait to see what everyone else has created to share with us today.

I'm a regular visitor to Kelly's blog, and adore her creations. I was blown away when she contacted me on messenger last November after I presented at OnStage in Melbourne, and we had a lovely chat - I love that Stampin' Up! brings people from all over Australia and the world together. With that in mind, here's my creation in honour of Kelly, I so hope to catch up with you face to face at the next Stampin' Up! event.



I love the cute critters in the We Must Celebrate set, I coloured with Stampin Blends and cut out the images to create my furry friends scene.


I stamped the foliage in the background and divided up the 4 critters so I could layer them using dimensionals, here's a different view of the layers.



I stamped Hardwood on the card base, sponging a little extra Crumb Cake for added depth and added the scalloped layer using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch.


Now we're off to visit the lovely Sharon Dalton, I can't wait to see what she has created. As always, if you have questions, comments or need some advice please drop me a line via email.

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:
