You’ve Got This Thank You

Hi Friends

So my up upline Shannean has put out a challenge to the team to create a card using the brand new You’ve Got This #139572  stamp set but with a twist.

If you search for images of this stamp set on Pinterest you will see lots and lots of gorgeous cards but I feel they are all so very similiar.  Some stamp sets are just like that, everyone seems to have the same idea of how to use it, and therefore all the cards you see made with the stamp set seem to be so very similiar to each other.

Well we were having this discussion last weekend and it prompted Shani to put out this challenge to us all.  I always love a challenge and really who wouldn’t miss an oportunity to craft if you get handed one.  So I sat down at my craft table and tried to come up with something different.

I know what type of card I wanted to make, that was the easy part, it was the “twist” that was a bit difficult.  When I first made this card I thought “Yep I have made something with a “twist”, however, the more I look at it I realize it really isn’t that much different to what I have seen on Pinterest.

I made an easel card, a style of card I just love, that learnt to make from the fabulous Bronwyn Eastley’s blog.  I was lucky enough to actually meet Bronwyn at last year’s Stampin’ Up! Convention, which was a huge thrill to me.  She is such a lovely lady.

As I needed to make a thank-you card I thought I would combine it with this challenge.  This is what I came up with.

Paula's thank-you card front

I got the idea of doing the multi-coloured background from a post I saw on Facebook.  Such a cute way to mix it up a bit.  The flower was stamped onto the background stamp in Black StazOn ink and then I cut the flower out a couple of times and added several layers on top of each other for dimension.  Dimensionals are great for doing this and make it so quick and easy.

The colours I used for the background are Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Tempting Turquoise & Soft Sky ink pads.

The card is made with Night of Navy card stock, with a mat of Soft Sky card stock  and Whisper White card stock.

The greeting is from a retired stamp set, but as I have said previously you could always swap it out for a greeting from one of our gorgeous current greeting stamp sets.  As always I added some bling with some Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  The absolute last thing I did was coat the flower with Crystal Effects to make it look shiny and pop.

As I said this is an easel card, do you want to see what it looks like when it’s open?

Paula's thank-you card open

I love how this type of card looks when it’s open.  They are so very easy to make, if you would like to learn how to make an easel card contact me today and I can arrange to come to your house and hold a demonstration with you and a couple of friends and show you how easy they really are.

I love hearing your comments so please leave me your thoughts by clicking on the little red love heart in top right hand corner.

I’m going away this weekend so I won’t get a chance to craft so all going well I will make a couple between now and the weekend.

Happy stamping!!

Sprinkles of Life

Hi Friends

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 or

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.

Sprinkles of Life Photopolymer Stamp Set  by Stampin' Up!

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.

They’re entirely transparent for perfect image placement, and they adhere well to our clear blocks. You’ll only need one set of blocks for all your photopolymer stamps (blocks sold separately). The stamps come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.

Quantity: 22 photopolymer stamps

Suggested clear blocks (sold separately): a, c, g

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.

Holly's bday card

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.

I have added links directly to my Stampin’ Up! shop for all the current products mentioned in this post to make it just that little bit easier for you to purchase your own.

I would love to hear your comments and always get such joy from reading them so please leave me your thoughts just by clicking on the little red love heart in the top right hand corner of this post.

Happy stamping!!
