KISS – Keep It Simple Stamper.....


I was surfing the net (again) looking at ....guess what.... cards and scrapping blogs ......and I came across this one – 365 Cards, where they post challenges EVERY DAY!

Today's challenge is - Keep It Simple - and as soon as I read it I knew EXACTLY which stamp set I would use if I took them up on the challenge....and I did. Here's my card:




I used one of the new Level 1 Hostess Stamp Sets- Birthday Bakery – which you can get for free with a qualifying workshop. I stamped an image and greeting in Black StazOn on Whisper White cardstock and coloured bits of the image using my Blender Pen and all of the new In Colours – Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Concord Crush and Poppy Parade. The card base is Poppy Parade and I've also used a strip of Pear Pizzazz.

Thanks for popping in to see what I've been up to.

Happy Stampin'

Thinking of........


Just Add Ink have a challenge this week to "Just Add Sympathy". Here's my entry:




I've used the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set, and some torn paper from the new DSP – Love Letters. I've also punch a circle from the same DSP using the 1/2" Circle Punchand a "Build a Brad" to make the brad.

A very simple card..... quickly put together wth one stamp, a brad, paper and ribbon.

A “Thank You” Printed Petal


I was thinking the other day that the launching of a brand new catalogue deserves something a little different........so my thank you cards for orders delivered during September are not going to be cards....they are....... Thank You Bookmarks. Here is a picture of some of them.....





I've used one of the new stamp sets from the 2011 IB&C that I got at Convention back in May. It's called Printed Petals and you'll find it on page 74. It retails for $34.95.

I've inked the image with Tempting Turquoise and stamped it on some Whisper White cardstock. I only just bought this ink pad and I just love it. It's so bright and has a real summery feel – don't you think? It makes me think of clear blue skies on a hot summer's day.

The flowers have been punched out with a square punch and layered on a strip of Melon Mambo which has just the right vibrancy to coordinate beautifully with Tempting Turquoise. A bit of Tempting Turquoise ¼" Grosgrain Ribbon and there you have it – A fun bookmark to use on those lazy days over summer when you're lying in the sun (with suntan lotion on of course), reading a good book. Ahhhh.... BLISS!

You'll be please to know that Whisper White and Very Vanilla cardstock is still available in packs of 40 A4 sheets. The pack costs $15.95 which equates to 40 cents per A4 sheet. Coloured Cardstock can be purchased in "Colour Collections" or "Individual Colours".

Colour Collection Cardstock:    20 sheets x A4 (2 of 10 colours) for $13.95 which is just 70 cents per A4 sheet.

Individual Colour Cardstock:    24 sheets x A4 (single colour) for $13.95 which is only 58 cents per A4 sheet – even better value!

12 x 12 Cardstock is also available. Check out the IB&C for more information or give me a call. I'm here to help!

Unfortunately you can no longer purchase Tempting Turquoise ribbon..... but don't despair because with some Whisper White Ribbon and some Tempting Turquiose Ink you can colour your own.

Happy Stampin'
