Have you checked out the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue yet? If not either click on this link or the photo of the latest catalogue on the left hand side of my page.
I always love it when a new cattie is released it is so exciting to see all the fabulous new products Stampin’ Up! have added.
Every year Stampin’ Up! have one special stamp set which is usually at the very back of the catalogue and it is released specifically to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). The Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) keeps families together and surrounded by love when their children are receiving medical treatment far from home. By purchasing this year’s stamp set called Sprinkles of Life, Stampin’ Up! will donate $3.00AUD/$$3.50NZ to RMHC.
To date Stampin’ Up! have contributed over $1,000,000 to RMHC and thier network of local RMHC chapters, you can learn more about how you can help by visiting www.stampinup.com/giving_au or www.stampinup.com/giving_nz.
I must admit in previous years I have usually overlooked this stamp set, and not purchased it. However, this year at convention we were shown some fantastic ways to use this stamp set and saw some gorgeous card samples. As a result I purchased the Sprinkles of Life stamp set #139971 $37.00.
With this stamp set you can sprinkle positive thoughts wherever you want. This set is chock-full of positivity that you’ll want to share with everyone.
Our top-quality photopolymer stamps have just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time.

The stamps come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.

Well with a stamp set this cute I just had to use it for my grand-baby’s 7th birthday this month. Our darling little Holly is growing so quickly and unfortunately we see her so infrequently what with us living at the other end of the country. However, she knows that Poppy and Nanny Tina are always thinking of her and we always send her something lovely for her birthday. This year’s presents were a collection of reading books to help her advance her reading skills at school. Of course with a nanny who likes to make hand-made cards she always receives a special card just for her.
This is a card I found on Pinterest and just loved the simplicity of it so I had to CASE (copy and share everything) it.
Cute hey? I used A4 Whisper White card stock #106549 as the base and the top mat, and added a mat of A4 Melon Mango card stock #119980 in between which was embossed with the now retired Argyle Embossing Folder. The ice-cream cones are stamped on Whisper White card stock with retired Baked Brown Sugar ink and then fussy cut out. The ice-cream is stamped in Daffodil Delight ink #126944 and punched out with the new Tree Builder Punch #138295. The sprinkles on top are stamped with Melon Mambo ink and the “cherry” on top are Melon Mambo Candy Dots #130931. The greeting, also from the stamp set Sprinkles of Life is stamped in Melon Mambo ink #126948 and finally I wrapped a piece of Baked Brown Sugar Thick Bakers Twine which is now also retired around the top mat.
