Combining a Sneak Peek with Christmas!!



Hello and Welcome to a fun combination of new and old!!

We had a ton of fun creating Queensland Christmas Cards for our tropical heat by using one of the new stamps available in our Mini Catalogue coming up in January!  It's called Timeless Tropical, and I think it will get a lot of love in my craft room!  


I've paired it with one of the super cute greetings from Itty Bitty Christmas  - love that totally relaxed wavy word line!!  I've also added a bunch of Noble Peacock Rhinestones to 'decorate' my Christmas Trees!!  


Inside, the card has the perfect greeting for the Christmas Holiday Break!!!  
Would you love to make this card too?????

You can order the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set NOW in my online store,

ITTY BITTY CHRISTMAS CLING STAMP SET

 but you will have to WAIT until the 3rd January to order the gorgeous Timeless Tropical - unless you join Stampin' Up! now and then you can order it right away!!!  Would you like to get your hands on the Mini Catalogue??  Send me a message so I can get one to you and then you can start making your wish list!!  Email me here.


At the moment, we also have our end of year closing sale with a bunch of products from our Holiday Catalogue now retiring at the end of this month and NOT available after 2nd January - make sure you check them all out on my website.

Inspired by the Babies & Kids section CTC#257




Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEING the CATTY!!


To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit - and we love to CASE from our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues which are just full of inspiration on every page!!

This week, we are CASEING from the Babies & Kids Chapter from our Annual Catalogue (just to mix it up a bit!!!), and I have been inspired by the cute rhino card on page 103.


I've used the same idea for the strips of DSP in the background, and the fully coloured title on the left side.


Instead of DSP, I've substituted the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate cut into strips behind my main image.


I've featured Christmas Gleaming as my stamp set of choice paired with Blueberry Bushel and Seaside Spray.  


Can you see the similarities between my card and the catalogue card?  They are sort of similar!!! 



Up next is the amazing Siobhan and her project inspired by this chapter!!


We really love it when you join in the fun with us too! Flip through this chapter in the Annual Catalogue and share with us what inspires you via our facebook challenge page!!!

Christmas Inspiration Colour INKSPIRATION #68


Hello and Welcome to our fun Blog Hop and Challenge for Colour INKspiration!


Our challenge is inspired by some amazing pinterest images and Stampin' Up! colours.

No photo description available.

Love this picture this time!!  The colours are:  Shaded Spruce, Blueberry Bushel, Pretty Peacock, Coastal Cabana and Silver Foil.  



I've used the colours as my starting point for one of the cards in our So Many Stars Bundle class coming up.  There are lots of awesome star images, so I was able to incorporate all of these colours with the Silver Foil as my finishing touch.  


I'm such a fan of blues and silver for Christmas that the card evolved into an easel card so it could show off these awesome colours even more!!  


I love how the die cut for the stars fits exactly over the stamped image - brilliant coordination Stampin' Up!  Thankyou.




Up next on this gorgeous colour challenge is the amazing Leonie and her gorgeous bells.



Make sure you hop all the way around to see lots of really gorgeous projects and ideas!!  


We love it when you join in the fun with us too!  It's easy to add your photo to the lineup on our facebook challenge page.

Combining two Catalogues CTC#256



Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEING the CATTY.  



To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything, or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to CASE from the amazing projects illustrated in our Stampin' Up! catalogues.

This week, we are CASEING a layout from our Annual Catalogue and then giving it a twist with supplies from the Holiday Catalogue.  

05.01.19_CATALOG_AC_PREORDER_ENGJP

My inspiration came from the front of the Annual Catalogue - see that Sailing Home card on the top row, 2nd in from the right?  I've cased the layout of this card to create a Christmas card using DSP from the Holiday Catalogue.


To keep with the horizontal stripe theme of the original card, I've embossed my Old Olive foil paper using the corrugated folder - embossing foil is just AWESOME!!  It always looks amazing!


My greeting panel has been super simplified from the original focussing on the gorgeous stamped image of the Gleaming Ornament, and the stamped greeting.


I've continued the stamped ornament using the Celestial Copper ink on the inside of the card as well. 


This is one of our cards for our Card Buffet coming up - so it's really simple and easy to replicate!!  



Up next on our hop is the amazing Michelle and super awesome sponging and totally adorable elves.  


We would love you to show us your inspiration from our Annual Catalogue  with a Holiday Catalogue twist too!!  It's easy to add your project to our facebook lineup!
