Stampin’ Up! Backyard Basics

Backyard Basics by Stampin' Up!Backyard Basics Birthday Card

Here we are back at the start of a new week. I hope you had a great weekend!

We took a visit to the zoo which was lots of fun…

Today’s card share continues the nature theme, and is especially sweet to create because of the matching Stampin’ Up! Backyard Basics bundle.

The bundle includes the stamp set and matching framelits to die cut the stamped images.

No hand cutting involved… LOVE that!

Backyard Basics by Stampin' Up!

The card here was inspired by Kimberley Van Diepen and is on a Naturals White cardstock base, with a touch of the Epic Day This & That designer series paper.

Happy stamping,

Best Of… 25 Years (So far)

Published by under cards | Nov 17 2013

BestOfBirthday_HappyBirthdayToYou

 

As part of the 25-year anniversary celebration, Stampin’ Up! have been bringing back some of our favourite stamp images and combining them into new sets.
So far we’ve seen 6 of these sets, and there are still 5 more to come.

We have Best of Flowers, Best of Butterflies, Best of Shelli, Best of ChristmasBest of Birthdays and just this month we have the new Best of Sale-a-bration stamp set.

 

Did you know? Each set is available in clear-mount only. They are all AUD$25.95, and each set includes some great classic images plus a never-before-seen image! Some of the classic images may be in different sizes from the original.

 

This weekend I had a play with the fun Best of Birthdays Set.

This simple card uses a new colour combo for me… Sahara Sand, Crisp Cantaloupe, Marina Mist and a touch of Pistachio Pudding.

My card was inspired but this lovely creation (see below) which I was lucky enough to receive a little while ago. It’s the work of the very talented Julie Cocks.

I love the clever use of the mosaic punch to create the decorated edging on the ‘Congratulations’ banner. So clever!

Hope you have a wonderful week ahead.

Happy stamping,

Stampin’ Up! Flower Shop Bundle: 40th Birthday Card

Published by under cards | Nov 08 2013

FlowerShop40Banner

I was lucky enough to receive some beautiful happy mail in recent weeks.

I thought I’d share a bright and blingy card today for some weekend inspiration for you :)

FlowerShow40

 

I love how *~sparkly~* this card is in real life (ignore the number on it! LOL).

It was inspired by Brandy Cox, and created by Tricia Raineri. Tricia always comes up with gorgeous projects – you can check out her blog here. On this card she has used the Flower Shop bundle (page 94 Annual Catalogue) to stamp and punch those awesome flowers, and there’s just the perfect touch of bling. Thanks for letting me share this card, Tricia!

Stampin’ Up!’s ‘On Its Way’ Simply Sent Kit

Published by under cards | Nov 06 2013

Hi friends. I just wanted to pop by today to share a few cards I made recently with the AWESOME ‘On Its Way’ Simply Sent kit, by Stampin’ Up!.

I was short on time, but desperate to get some crafting in, so this kit was the perfect solution.
(Pssst: you can find it on page 161 of the Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalogue).

On Its Way Simply Sent Kit Contents

It has everything you need to sit down for a relaxing cardmaking session.

Card bases x 8? Check.

Envelopes x 8? Check.

Cute arrow clips x8? Check.

Dimensionals, sticker embellishments, label bases? Check. Check. Check.

It doesn’t take long to complete the cards but it’s still a satisfying ‘I made it myself’ project.

Best of all, no extra supplies or adhesive is required except for your chosen greeting stamp.

bravo card

There’s no right or wrong way to place your adhesive-backed die cut shapes, so you can get creative with different layouts. Or just stick to the one design.

I’m still loving my flags and banners, so this simple design worked for me. And I think they look cute!

Once I started, I was hooked and completed the whole packet in just a little while.

Now all I need to do is write a little message and pop them in the post! Too easy.
