Happy Birthday Die Cut Magnolias

I am still playing with the Good Morning Magnolia set. But today there is no stamping! I die cut the images directly from the designer series paper then layered them on a white panel. The sentiment is actually a sticker from the Magnolia Lane Memories and More card pack - clever huh!?

This card was cased from pinterest, there are literally thousands of pins using this magnolia bundle. It certainly is a firm favourite of mine.

Mini Curvy Keepsake Box

Have you spied this little gem in the catalogue?  Introducing the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Die Box! 

A sweet little box that is perfect for a little treat, some jewellery and lots more! I can see these as little table favours on the dinner table and co-workers' desks and just because gifts. 

I haven't received my order yet so I snaffled a photo of some made by Connie Collins - aren't they adorable in the copper and navy? So quick and simple to make and so elegant. 

In true Stampin' Up! style it also has a coordinating stamp set with little sayings for the tags which you can cut out with the dies and also some background stamps to add some interest to your boxes. Don't you just love the little shapes? Perfectly sized for the boxes.    

Now you might be thinking that you have seen this die before - and you would kind of be right. We used to carry a larger version - this one is smaller and needs no gluing together like the previous one. 

Here is a video to show you how quick and simple they are to construct! One piece of 6x6 DSP or cardstock is all you need.

Happy Birthday / Happy you are here using Bird Ballad

Here are a couple of sweet bird ballad cards for you today. I was inspired by the layout from a card I received for my birthday a while back from my team leader Marelle. 

It is a lovely way to showcase designer series papers when you cannot decide which pattern to use! 

All these papers are from the Bird Ballad pack which happens to be on sale until 30th September in the buy 3 get 1 free sale. See more about that HERE   

I used the same layout but changed the sentiment and added some soft lace to the second card. These bird are simply punched out so there is no stamping or colouring required! 

Why not take advantage of the sale and make some cards just like this? There are plenty of designs in the paper pack to choose from.

Toile Tidings sampler cards

Looking for some quick and easy cards for a make and take or stamp a stack project? 

Stampin' Up! make it so simple with their designer series papers. 

This Toile Tidings paper is so pretty it is almost a shame to cover it up! So instead I made it the focal point of the cards. By adding a coordinating strip of dsp behind it and a simple sentiment these make an excellent project for new stampers. By cutting the dsp at 4"x3" you can maximise the pieces from one sheet of 12"x 12" paper.

As this paper only has 3 colours - real red, garden green and very vanilla you don't need a while craft room of cardstock and inks to make cards. 

For the more avid stampers - the addition of ribbon, bling, embossing, thread etc you can really make these cards a stand out. 

Why not give it a try yourself?

Head on over to my online store to order your supplies today. Remember to use the hostess code HHP29JMB  to earn yourself a voucher to spend on your next order.

Countdown Calendar Kit

One of the first items in my Holiday catalogue pre-order was this amazing Countdown Calendar kit.

It comes pre assembled with all the pieces to make this cute set. The boxes are sturdy and will hold all kinds of treats and gifts for the Christmas countdown! 

There is a coordinating stamp set too if you want to add a little more to each drawer but I have found it isn't a necessity. 

There is also the option of number 25 or a gold star for those who have a preference either way. 

And check this out! The backs of the drawers can be decorated as well. I have seen some beautiful countdowns for birthdays, baby's arrival, retirement and this one - an embellishment holder - how clever is that? So practical and you can use it the whole year round. 

I have made one kit already but I am going to buy another just to make this! 

The kits are fun and they don't take long to make. And making them with friends is always better right? So why not come along to one of my workshops. You will have access to the stamp set, inks and glues. 

Sunday 29th September 2019 1pm - 4pm (rsvp/payment required by 15th September) **1 spare kit**
Sunday 3rd November 2019 1pm - 4pm (rsvp/payment required by 19th October)

Thanks Coach - and go Tangos!!

It is end of season for many sporting team at the moment and I was asked to make some thank you cards for some basketball coaches. 

This one is made in the team colours of orange and black. I cut out a large circle in pumpkin pie then embossed it with the new hammered metal embossing die. I thought this gave it the look and feel of a basketball. 

The thank you die is one I use often, it is nice and bold and I love the font. 

I added a layer of white using a scallop circle to break up the colours. 

A strip of cordinating dsp and my card was complete! Go Tangos!!

Stampers Anonymous September Blog Hop

Goodness another month has flown by and it is time for another Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop! Blog Hop 10! 

I love that this month's challenge is new catalogue products as I am in a snowman mood at the moment even though the weather is warming up already. 

This card was simple to make as it's focal points are the super cute Let it Snow DSP and the matching Snowman Season stamp set. 

I cut both panels with the stitched rectangle dies and then stamped the cute snowman. He is coloured with blends then I added the Toile Tidings glitter enamel dots.

I stamped the sentiment with whisper white ink - I have actually used a retired punch here but you can easily cut this with scissors or use the smaller rectangle stitched dies.
