Wonderful Romance Bundle


I love teaming yellow and black together which I have done on this card.

I have attached the Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala 6”x6” Designer Series Paper (#148554) to Basic Black card (#121688). The floral image from the Wonderful Romance stamp set (#148632) was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708) on Whisper White card (#10549). I coloured this with Stampin’ Blends - Dark & Light Daffodil Delight (#144603), Dark & Light Old Olive (#144597), Dark Calypso Coral (#144044). The co-ordinating die from the Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies (#148529) was used to cut the image. The ribbon is from Sale-a-bration. It is the Daffodil Delight from the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack (#149623). “Thinking Of You” is also from the Wonderful Romance stamp set and stamped with Memento ink. The base card is Daffodil Delight (#121680). 

Enjoy your day.

Sea Of Textures

Hi friends,

This will be my last simple card for a while. As much as I have enjoyed doing these cards, I still love to emboss and use framelits on most cards, to give texture and dimension.

The stamp set used here is the Sea Of Textures (#c146488, #w146485). The greeting and octopus are both stamped with Night Of Navy ink (#147110) and I used Crumb Cake ink (#147116) for the “sand”. The base card is Night Of Navy (#106577) and the card front is Whisper White (#106549).

These simple stamping cards are great when you are short of time or for the person who is new to stamping. You can still create a lovely handmade card for that special person.

Have a great day.

Beauty Abounds

Hello Ladies & Guys,

I’m continuing with the simple stamping cards and today I have used the Beauty Abounds stamp set (#cling 148726).

The cardstock is Blueberry Bushel (#146991), Crushed Curry (#131288) and Whisper White (#106549). All the images are from the Beauty Abounds stamp set and stamped with Blueberry Bushel ink (#147138) and Crushed Curry ink (#131288). 
The Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies (#148536) co-ordinate with the Beauty Abounds stamp set but of course with doing only simple stamping, I haven’t used them on this card. However if you purchase these in a bundle - Beauty Abounds Bundle (#150617) - you will save 10%.

Enjoy your day.

By The Bay

Hi everyone,

One of the Sale-a-bration stamp sets is By The Bay (#cling149739) which I have used for todays simple stamping card.

I stamped the image using Memento ink (#132708) and the sentiment with Real Red ink (#147084) on Whisper White card (#106549). The other cardstock is Real Red (#106578) and Basic Black (#121688). For those who enjoy colouring or have extra time, this image would look great coloured with Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Write markers or your favourite colouring medium.

There is a range of free products from Sale-a-bration with a $90 order until 31st March. There are also matching framelits you can purchase for many of the stamp sets. Check out all the details here-

Have a great day.

All My Love Designer Series Paper

Hi and welcome again,

A little change from cards today. I made this beautiful frame for my nephew and his wife when their gorgeous little daughter was born. I just knew I wanted to use the All My Love Designer Series Paper (#148578) for this as soon as I saw it. I have used 2 different sheets of DSP. (I have blocked out the info of her details). There is room for a photo of their choice to add to it. This is a 12”x12” frame.

I used Lovely Lipstick card (#146993) and Soft Sea Foam card (#147012). The hearts are cut using dies from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies (#148527). The small solid hearts near the name are the pieces from the border of hearts at the bottom. It’s great when you can use both. Before cutting the hearts, I added the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet (#144106) to the back of the card, making it so easy to attach these detailed cutouts.

Lacey’s Mum & Dad were thrilled with it.

Wishing you well


Another simple stamping card this time using the Wishing You Well stamp set (#c147864, #w147867). This is a carry over set from the Holiday Catalogue.

I find using the Stamparatus (#148187) is great for this set. In fact I use the Stamparatus for most of my stamping these days, which gives great  results everytime. I stamped the leaves using Granny Apple Green ink (#147095), then the bow with Gorgeous Grape ink (#147099). “Just a note” was also stamped with Gorgeous Grape ink. The card front is Whisper White (#106549) and the base card is Gorgeous Grape (#147011).
These cards are so simple, but still very pretty.

Country Livin’

Hello & Welcome,

My next simple stamping card is a masculine card using the old truck from the Country Livin’ stamp set (#c141925, #w141922).

I stamped the truck and the sentiment which is from the Petal Palette stamp set (#145788, #w145785) using Soft Suede ink (#147115). These were stamped on Whisper White card (#106549) and the edges were also sponged with Soft Suede ink. The card front was attached to the Early Espresso base card (121686).
Can’t get much simpler than that!!

By The Bay


I have been on the road so haven’t had a chance to do my blogs but hope to post them every few days. These cards over the next few weeks will be very simple stamping, using just 1 or 2 stamp sets, 1 or 2 inks and a couple of different coloured cardstock. As you know I like to use embossing powders, embossing folders and framelits on most of my cards, but just wanted to show some simple stamping which is great for the beginner or when you are short of time.

“Happy Birthday” is from the Birthday Wishes For You stamp set (#c145742, #w145739) and stamped with Crushed Curry ink (#147087). I stamped the birds twice using Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708). This image is from the By The Bay stamp set (#cling 149739) which is one of the Sale-a-bration stamp sets. The cardstock is Crushed Curry (#131288), Basic Black (#121688) and Whisper White (#106549).

As I said - simple stamping!!

Have a great day.

Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies


I have used the same technique on this card as the one I made yesterday, but using the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (148530) and Grapefruit Grove ink (#147142). The ink was rolled onto the embossing folder using a Sponge Brayer (#141714), before embossing with the Big Shot (#143263).

The Very Vanilla card (#106550) was attached to the Calypso Coral base card (#124392). “Just For You” from the Meant To Be stamp set (#cling148626) was stamped with Calypso Coral ink (#147101). All the hearts are cut with dies from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies (#148527). There are 13 dies in this set with a great variety of hearts with stitching, scallops and more a detailed heart as well as some border pieces. They co-ordinate with the Meant To Be stamp set and can be purchased in the Meant To Be bundle (#150587) for a 10% discount.  The border of hearts were attached using the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet (#144106) and the large heart was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The Grapefruit Grove pearls are from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls (#146927).

That’s all for today. Have a great day.
