Another Quick and Easy Card

When I am creating cards for my display boards for paper shows like the upcoming Paperific paper show, I am in need of quick and easy layouts as I have to get quite a few cards made. Plus at present I am supposed to be making swap items for our upcoming Stampin'Up! Convention in May so need to get things done in priority! Posters are completed, class for this month is ready so I can now start on some swaps for my team of demonstrators attending Convention!

This card uses one of my tried and trusted card layouts, one I always come back to when card making in a hurry. It is so adaptable to so many different stamp sets.


I came up with the colour combination by using my Colour Coach from Stampin'Up! ( very handy when card making in a hurry!). Colours are So Saffron, Pool Party and Not Quite Navy. The last colour is one of the retiring colours ( June 30 ) and it is interesting to note that in the last few cards I have made I've used at least one of the retiring colours. Not quite sure what to make of that....... Well new colours always mean new faves and new and exciting colour combos to try! Plus I have seen today the new upcoming In Colours for 2013 - 2015 and they are gorgeous!!!!! Anyway enough vacillating (love that word) and back to my card!

I really like how the new Cloudy Day embossing folder turned out. It looks fabulous used on either side - embossed or debossed. I've used it on Core'dinations Pool Party card stock for this card.

Stamps - Papillion Potpourri, A Little Greeting

Card - So Saffron, Pool Party Core'dinations, Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla

Ink - So Saffron, Pool Party, Not Quite Navy

Extras- Cloudy Day embossing folder, Word Window punch, Not Quite Navy taffeta ribbon

Remember you can order any of these items in my online store - just click on the "Shop Now" tab at the top right of the page.

Well I'd better get a move on and do some swaps!

Clean and Simple CASE

This card is my CASE of this weeks Clean & Simple layout. I loved the card when I saw it in my emails and knew I had to do a current Stampin'Up! version.


How good is this for a quick and easy card? The paper doilies in the current seasonal catalogue make it so easy. I was thinking of trying a version using the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits - must do that!

Card - Summer Starfruit, Basic Black, Whisper White

Stamps - Papillion Potpourri, Bring on the Cake

Extras - Tea Lace paper doily, In Colour DSP paper stack, Elegant Butterfly punch, Dimensionals, Black Staz-On ink

I love making cards that are quick and easy!

Variation on Herringbone Technique



If you follow my blog you will know that last month I taught how to do Herringbone technique in my classes. As I'm still making samples for my poster displays for Paperific in May I decided to play around with the herringbone technique to create a different background for my cards. Here is the result!

Colours are - Pink Pirouette, Island Indigo and Rose Red.
Designer Series paper is Fan Fair and stamp images are from the set - Postage Due.
Punches are -Postage Stamp, Modern Label and Decorative Label ( trimmed down, a neat way to get more use from your punches!)

The secret to creating these backgrounds and what makes the whole process is a lot easier are Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets $25.95 -120805 in the main catalogue. These sheets are ideal for this type of technique or Bargello or paper quilting.

Hey!!!! Did you know that if you see a Stampin'Up! product on my blog that you would like to have, you can now order online through my Online Stampin'Up! store 24 hours a day! How good is that!!!!

So to celebrate the arrival of my online store to my blog I am offering a free gift - Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack ( $11.95 value ) to the FIRST person to make an order of $100 or more through my online store. Go for it!!!!! I will email the lucky winner and find out which papers you would like. You will need to be ordering from Australia as my store only operates in Australia.

I hope you are the lucky one!

Chalkboard Card using Swallowtail Stamp

I am busy making cards for a new display poster for my teams Stampin'Up! stand at the upcoming Paperific Show here in Melbourne, May 3 - 5. I am doing more faux chalkboard technique cards for the poster. I've had the Swallowtail stamp sitting on my desk for awhile waiting to be used for this technique and I have finally done it! I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.


The background matt and card are Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise. The Melon Mambo organza ribbon is in the current Seasonal catalogue.

I hope you like my card! I've now placed a Pinterest "Pin It" button on my posts so please "pin" my card if you like it.
