Makeover Monday – Thoughtful Blooms

When I saw the Thoughtful Blooms and Small Blooms punch in this year’s
Sale-A-Bration catalogue, I immediately thought of the Petite Petals stamp set and punch and I knew that this is a set that needed to be used in a makeover.

I looked through my old catalogues, but nothing was appealing to me. After a google search, I found a card that I loved. The original is an easel card that was made by Margaret Knight. You can see her original blog post here.
I decided not to do an easel card, but I did use her design. I inadvertently used multiple products in my makeover. Margaret had used A Nice Cuppa stamp set and Cups and Kettle dies on her card. I used Tea Together stamp set and Tea Time framelets on my card

I also embossed the back mat with the Subtle 3D embossing folder. I used the sentiment from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set, but I can see this working really well as a Mother’s Day or get well card. You can find the complete list of products used in this project in my online store, or listed individually below

Let me know what you think of this makeover.

Make Over Monday – Dressed to Impress

I decided that I was going to go through my old Stampin’ Up! catalogues and find cards that were made with retired stamp sets and give them a makeover to use them with current sets.

This is a photo that I found in the 2013 annual catalogue that was made using the Dress Up stamp, and this is my re-make. I also decided to play along with a colour challenge which was using Pretty Peacock, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Grapefruit Grove.

Do you like my new and updated version of this card? I paper pieced the shoes using scraps of the Birthday Bonanza DSP

I am going to try and make this a regular Monday feature, so pop back next week to see which stamp set has gotten a makeover

Here is the project I am sharing with you today!

My husband came home with this key ring that he purchased for Remembrance Day last year. The first thought that went through my mind when I saw it was “I want to make a card like that”. I was so excited when the new mini catalogue came out and I saw the poppies on the cover!

I used both the Painted Poppies and the Peaceful Moments bundles. I stamped the poppy with Versamark onto the background of the card and embossed the sentiment with Shimmer White embossing powder. If you are also inspired by this key ring, I would love to see what you create.

Gold Edged Christmas Card

Welcome to our monthly Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop, in which demonstrators from around the world share their latest projects. This month’s theme is ‘December Holidays’. You might have arrived here from Shirley’s blog. Wasn’t her project lovely?

The card that I have done today is quick and easy. I used the foil edged cards and envelopes for that gorgeous gold edge around the card, and dug into my DSP stash. If you want to make different variations, you can use the silver edged cards and any of the pretty Christmas DSP in the holiday catalogue.

Don’t forget to stamp the envelope and the inside of the card so that everything is matching.

These are the products that I used for this card

Fall Card

Welcome to our monthly Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop, in which demonstrators from around the world share their latest projects. This month’s theme is ‘Fall/Thanksgiving’. You might have arrived here from Shirley’s blog. Didn’t she have a lovely project?


I always have a hard time wrapping my head around the time differences. When the blog goes live, my fellow demonstrators are just starting their day on a Wednesday morning, and I am about to go to sleep on Wednesday night!
I could be mistaken, but I think that I am the only one on this hop who is in the southern hemisphere. While everyone else can look outside their windows for inspiration in the leaves changing colours on the trees, the tree in my garden is covered in beautiful while blossoms!

However, living in Melbourne in Australia, the cold weather seems to linger for a while, so I could still come up with a card that has an autumnal feel to it.

Below is a picture of the supplies that I used for this project.

Halloween

Welcome to our monthly Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop, in which demonstrators from around the world share their latest projects. This month’s theme is ‘Halloween’. You may have arrived here from Shirley’s blog. Didn’t she have a fun project?
I have to admit to being a bit of a Grinch when it come to Halloween. It is the last day of tax season (my day job is a tax consultant), and I usually get home late, or else I am so tired I hide in the house and pretend that I am not home.

My project is quick and easy and oh so cute. These little treat boxes are using the mini curvy keepsakes die. You can put as much or as little effort in as you choose.
The first one is just cut out of DSP. The one on the other end is cut out of Mango Melody card stock and stamped with Pumpkin Pie using the check stamp from the Tiny Keepsakes stamp set. The middle one is Mango Melody card stock and the pumpkin is stamped in Pumpkin Pie with the pumpkin stamp from the Harvest Hello stamp set and punched out with the apple builder punch.

These are the supplies that I used for this project.
All the supplies used can be ordered through my online store here.
