Late Night Stamper Treasure Hunt Blog Hop starts September 1st !!!!

I'm super pleased with myself - I have finished my project for the Late Night Stamper Treasure Hunt Blog Hop which starts September 1st.

What is this you ask? Let me tell you, you will not want to miss it.
It is a Hop that you follow around and get a clue on each one as to their chosen product in the current Stampin' Up! catalogues. There will be a picture of the clue and a description and maybe some projects using the product we picked. 
There will be a list on each blog of the participating blogs in the Treasure Hunt. 
This list will be updated from the start of 1st September, to the end of sign up period 1st October. 
I will update the list  as needed. 
This Hop goes until the 15th of November so don't think you have to get it all done in one session.
Last hop had 50 blogs to hop around ....... that's a lot of inspiration and a very good way to get a clear idea on what you can create with our products.

Over 12 weeks, we will all post projects each week to showcase the fabulous products available to you.

Don't forget, if you would like to buy any Stampin' Up! products and don't already have a Demonstrator, you can order anytime though my online store, or email me.

At the end, email me a list of all the blog's and what the answer to their clue is so you will be in the running to win some great Stampin' Up! products - absolutely FREE.

Even though I am the only Australian Demonstrator on board (hopefully some more will join up), you will need to answer the clues for everyone, but email your answers to me to be in running for a prize as we cannot ship products outside our country. 
So this time round you will not miss out on getting a prize! as only the correct Australian entries will go into the draw.  

Hope this all makes sense - come back September 1st and see what I have made and get my clue!

#stampingsunday - Banners

I missed my #stampingsunday post last week, but am back on track and doing Banners!

Do you struggle with Male cards???
I know I do!!!!!!
I decided that Banners can easily take a big focus on the card for a male - really, they are as effective as ribbon is to females cards.

I used Chocolate Chip card stock, ink, and retired DSP I have had for over 4 years!!!! You know, just waiting for the right time to use it!

I have used the train from the new Traveler set and the greeting from the Sassy Salutations.
I also used my Banner Framelits to get great looking banner pennants.

What do you think - pretty easy really.

Awesome HK Grumpy

There's a great challenge to do over at SVG Cutting Files - Anything with Fall Colors. 

I bought the Trapezoid Card file from them and took the opportunity to use the Exclusive Hello Kitty Grumpy file I got (one of many) from participating in the Hello Kitty Blog Hop a few months back.

I used Stampin' Up! Early Espresso and Tangelo Twist card stock as my main colours.
The background is the Hardwood stamp and the sentiment is from Show & Tell 1 photopolymer set that was limited a few months back.

Ok, so apart from realizing I put the ears on wrong, what do you think!
I love her!!!!

I am loving the style of this card base too, so look out for more as I work my way through my SVG Cutting Files!

August Twinchies

I thought I'd show you the two Twinchie's I made for this month's swaps.

They basically are the same with slight variations - I mean a 2 inch square is not too much to play with is it!

On both of them I have used my Blendabilities to colour the card stock flower, and then just my normal markers to colour the clay flower.
Because the clay is soooooo  light, I am able to give the Twinchie some depth without it costing me the earth to post!

I wanted a different saying on my second one, but due to the small size to work with, I ended up cutting it into 3 and gluing on.  I think this one is my favourite.

The 2 inch backing is another Project Life card cut to size and then I used my aqua pen to give the flowers a washed type of look!

Ok, now to think of something for next month!

August Birthday Cards

Here are the cards I made for the Ladies at the Nursing Home where I work who are celebrating their birthdays this month.

Whilst only 3 Ladies have birthday's in August, I made 5 Cards using last years InColors which are still current for this year.

Now before you ask about the men - none of the Resident's I care for in my sections actually are having birthdays this month.

Baked Brown Sugar

Crisp Cantaloupe and Strawberry Slush

 Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana

Actually, only 2 of the Ladies are getting these due to one turning 95.
I think that deserves a special card. I will show you that one later when the big day has come.

The stamp set used is Gifts of Kindness. I also give them a little fun size dairy milk chocolate in a little box.

One lady has her's and was thrilled that I was so thoughtful, and impressed that I made it myself.
You know it really is not much, but to our Resident's, as in other Homes I'm sure, it might be everything!

Project Life Card #2

Here is the second card I made for my August Card swap.
This one is on it's way to the Netherlands, hope she likes it.

This time I used the framed project card - centre white and all the way out to the black border.

I picked out the Strawberry Slush for my main colour and used a couple of newly retired stamp sets.
Happy Watercolor ( can't believe they didn't carry it into the main catalogue!) and Perfectly Penned.

Anyway, another lovely card by using my Project Life Everyday Adventure project kit.

CPC 38 - Spirits Bright!

The Card Challenge over at Craft Project Central is a real challenge this month!

I had to read the instructions 3 times because I was sure it must be mistaken.......3" x 12" and score at 6"... man that sounds like a wee card!

Well, those dimensions were right, and yes it's a wee card.
A very cute wee card none the less and a fabulous sketch challenge to go with it.


Anyways, I turned it on it's side and created this

Awesome card I must say!!!!! I think I outdid myself.....LOL, ok maybe a bit far, but isn't it just so cute!

I have used all things NEW!
Card stock is the new Incolor Hello Honey, DSP is new Lullaby.
See the new Gold ribbon! (least fav bit of the card as it just doesn't want to sit right).
Stamp sets Making Spirits Bright and Get Your Santa On. How cool is that name for  stamp set, and it's a photopolymer one too.
And again with the new Blendabilities - Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.

Think I'm going to make some Christmas tags whilst I'm in the Christmas mood!

Project Life Card #1

For my August card swaps, I thought I'd have a go at making cards using some of the Project Life items.
Project Life doesn't have to be used just for scrapbooking!

Here I've used one of the smaller cards that has the saying die cut out already.
I stamped two different Butterflies and popped on a dimensional to give it a lift.
The main colour is Bermuda Bay which is one of the core colours used in this PL Everyday Adventure series.

I've also stamped the feet from the retired stamp set called  Daring Adventure.

This one is on it's way to France, and I'll show you in another post the one that's on it's way to the Netherlands.

SIL Card Challenge - Congratulations

I love using my Cameo cutter for my crafting. I show you many items I make with it using vinyl.

In one of the FB groups I am in, the challenge was set to make a card using only the Cameo and must be the colours of Purple, Silver or Grey, and could have White or Black in addition.

So with the Challenge set, I set about going through the copious files I have to find something I could make. Anyways, I came across this file. I did actually think it was a card until I cut it and discovered that not to be the case! 
As you can see it is easily converts to an easel file, so all was good.

You know me, why make one when I can make two, right!!!!

 Ok, so I think I nailed the challenge! and what awesome cards!

I used Wisteria Wonder and Smoky Slate as my colours.
Now the Congratulations Tag file with flower is totally Cameo so I got that covered.
The easel card base was using my SU Circle framelits and Big  Shot, and the easel holder was a SU punch.

Anyways, I just have to decide which one to give to one of my ladies who turns 95 in a week - I know she will love it!
