July CASE Challenge

For this month’s CASE tutorial I am CASE-ing a card that I received from Lotte Noordzij-Walther. You can see her card at the beginning of my video. I loved the design of this card – it is fantastic to use up little pieces of DSP.

The first card uses the new Online Exclusive Season Of Green & Gold DSP with the Greeting Of The Season stamp set for the greeting. If you want more inspiration for using this DSP sign up for the Season Of Green & Gold Virtual Stamp Camp. You can find all the details about this here

This version uses the same piece of Winter Meadows DSP for all 3 strips – the middle one is the reverse side. The stamp is from the Golden Greenery stamp set and the sentiment is from Everyday Greetings stamp set.

My last card is the one I did in my Facebook live and uses A Little Latte DSP and the Latte Love dies. The sentiment on this one is from the Layering Leaves stamp set.

Below is the replay of my Facebook live.

The PDF tutorial that I mention can be downloaded here. Please make your card and upload a photo here. I am looking forward to seeing different variations on this card theme.

Funky Folds Blog Hop – Trusty Tools

I am excited to be participating in this month’s funky folds blog hop. I LOVE fun folds and this is a group of like-minded paper crafters with same same passion for making cards with
funky folds.
Funky actually means “modern and stylish in an unconventional or striking way” This hop features cards that are not the usual rectangle/square portrait or landscape style.
All Blog Hops have an ‘anything goes’ theme using any type of ‘funky’ card fold.


I participate in a monthly fun fold tutorial group collaboration. Each month we have one fold with instructions and 12 different samples of that fold. This month’s fold is the Side Step Fun Fold. This is my card that is in the tutorial. It folds flat for easy posting.

Let’s Craft together Blog Hop – Trusty Tools

Thank you for joining us for this month’s Let’s Craft Together blog hop. We are a group of
multi-cultural Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators in Australia who have developed a strong friendship though our love of stamping and our admiration of each other’s style of crafting. Each month one of us sets a challenge that we use for the blog hop. This month’s challenge is a masculine theme challenge that was set by Michele Jutrisa.

I used the Trusty Tools stamp set and the sentiment from Something Fancy. This is a very good sentiment for me of late, I remember birthdays but don’t seem to get the cards sent off in time!

Share It Sunday – Season Of Green & Gold with Layers Of Beauty

Thank you for joining us for our Sunday blog hop (of course in Australia this goes live at 1:00am Monday morning, but it is a great start to the working week when we wake up!) There is no theme for this hop, it is for each of us to choose what project we want to share.

I have been playing with some of the new Online Exclusive products that will be released on Wednesday (3rd July). During my Facebook live this morning I made a card that uses some of the new Online Exclusive DSP and combined it with an annual catalogue stamp set – Layers Of Beauty and the Layers Of Beauty Decorative Masks

This card uses up some of your DSP stash (or you can use new DSP like I did. It opens up like this:

I had a bit of an oopsie moment when I realised that instead of Petal Pink I had grabbed my Crumb Cake ink pad. However, the show must go on and I went with it using the Crumb Cake ink. This was a rather fortunate mistake as I loved the roses with the Crumb Cake ink. You can watch the replay of the live below

Season Of Green & Gold Stamp Camp

There are some stunning new products being added to the Online Exclusive range from 3rd July. The next Aussie Crafting Collective Stamp Camp will the on the 17th August and will use some of these new items.
If you are in Australia, you can order the class kit (details below) and join us to assemble the cards. If you are overseas, you can purchase the tutorial bundle, prepare your kit and craft along.

This is a collaboration with myself and the amazing Maheswari Rajaguru and Julia Quinn.
This Stamp camp will be on the 17th August. The event will take place in an exclusive Facebook group.
We will each design three projects – two standard cards and a fun fold. In the event each of us will take you through making our projects. You can watch live or at any time that suits you. You will have lifetime access to the group, so you can go back and re-watch the presentations if you need a refresher on assembling the cards.

This product range does have a Christmas feel to it, but my immediate thought went to elegant wedding cards. I am still busy designing my cards, but I am leaning towards happy ever after. We will be focusing on the Golden Greenery bundle and using the Greetings Of The Season and Everyday Greetings stamp sets. You don’t have to have the sentiment stamp sets, you can substitute with any sentiments that you like.

We have a number of options for you to choose from to join the Stamp Camp:
1. Purchase the bundle, and you will get the tutorial bundle free. (Click here to order your bundle, please use the host code on the side of this post when you check out.) If you choose this option and you would like the kit to make the cards you can purchase that directly from me for the discounted price of $45.00 (including postage). The kit comprises all the card stock to complete the nine projects in the tutorial plus a quarter pack of the Season Of Green & Gold DSP, three 6″ x 6″ pieces of the Graceful Greenery Vellum, a pack of the Adhesive Backed Metallic Gems, one and a half metres of each of the Cream Woven Ribbon and nine envelopes.
Please note, the bundle will be purchased directly from Stampin’ Up! but the add on kit needs to be bought through me.
2. If you already have the bundle, you can purchase the class kit (all the card stock to complete the nine projects in the tutorial plus a quarter pack of the Season Of Green & Gold DSP, three 6″ x 6″ pieces of the Graceful Greenery Vellum, a pack of the Adhesive Backed Metallic Gems, one and a half metres of each of the Cream Woven Ribbon and nine envelopes) for $85.00
The above options are only available to Australian residents.
3. If you live overseas we would love to have you join us. You can purchase the tutorial for $25.00. The tutorial will be emailed to you and you will receive an invitation to join the Facebook group.

Click here to complete an online registration form. I will be ordering the products on the 1st August to allow time for them to get to me, get cut and packaged and sent off for you to receive them by the 17th. Please register by 31st July to get your kit on time.

Please remember that these products are only available for purchase from the 3rd July so none of these links (except for the registration link) will work before then.

Hoping to see you there!

Ink & Inspiration – Golden Greenery

Welcome to another Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You may be starting at my blog or landed here from another one.
Each month there is a new Inspirational challenge. This month we have a sketch challenge.

I loved this sketch. I am one of those people who cannot resist playing with new toys – it doesn’t matter how many others are at hand, I need to try the new ones. As a result, my card is giving a sneak peek of some of the new Online Exclusive products that are available from 3rd July.

The sentiment is from the Greetings Of The Season stamp set. The sentiment is cut out with ones of the dies from the coordinating Greetings Of The Season dies. The foliage has been cut with the Golden Greenery dies and the beautiful DSP is called Seasons Of Green & Gold.

If you are keen for more ideas using these products, check back on the 3rd July and I will have information about a virtual Stamp Camp which is based on these products.

You are currently visiting Tracy Held at Trace Of Creativity in Australia. Please see the list below & hop through all of the other participants to see how they were inspired.

Technique Squad Blog Hop – Leaf Collection

Thank you for joining us for the Technique Squad’s monthly blog hop.
Each month we use a different technique. Hopefully our projects will inspire you to give the technique a try. This month the technique the we are show casing is “Shadow Stamping.”

To do shadow stamping you stamp your first image in white craft ink and then stamp it again in a colour shifting the stamp slightly so the the white image shows on the side as a shadow. Of course, I had to choose one of the background stamps which made the stamping a bit more difficult, but I am very happy with my final card.

I had to try it in a different colour. Green is not my go to colour, so this pushed me out of my comfort zone.

I layered the sprigs to mirror the shadow effect.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Latte Love

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! This month’s theme is “Online Exclusives”.

It should come as no surprise to know that I am a coffee addict! In my opinion coffee (and sparkles) make everything better. Given that, it is obvious that one of my favourite Online Exclusives is Latte Love. Until the end of the month you can purchase this bundle and an extra 10% discount.

Every once in a while the planets align and one card ticks multiple boxes. This is one of those cards. When it comes to card making, I love fun folds. I participate in a monthly fun fold collaboration (see the bottom of this post for more details). This month’s fold is a Triangle Easel Fold. I was making this card in my subscriber VIP group where I do a live to show the assembly of the fold each month. While I was making the card, I had a light bulb moment where I thought this is the perfect card for this blog hop!

Last weekend we had our Creativity Abounds Stamp Camp. This one is over, but if you want to know about the Stamp Camp you can see the details here. At the camp we have challenges. One of them was a Tic Tac Toe challenge.

This card uses the diagonal birthday, fancy fold, die cut. It also sneaks in blending and sparkly. You are probably wondering where the birthday come in. This is a bit of poetic license. I am going to give the card to a friend. She makes me look like a beginner when it come to coffee. The coffee sentiment is perfect for her for her birthday. It is also a reflection of our friendship – we have had (and will continue to have) countless cups of coffee and quality time together.

Be sure to hop all the way around and see what Online Exclusives the others have used. We don’t discuss our blog post before they go live – so we don’t know what products are going to come up in the hop. Some one may give us a sneak peek of the new Online Exclusive products that are being released in July. Please leave comments for us – we love getting feedback about our work!

Technique Tuesday – Spotlight On Nature

Thank you for joining us for our Technique Tuesday blog hop. The theme this month is “Vintage”. This isn’t one of my go to stamping styles. After giving it some thought, I used the Spotlight On Nature stamp set.

I love the little embossed post mark (which I might have put on the wrong side!). This is in the Perennial Postage die set. This is the first time I have used that die, but it certainly won’t be the last.
