Walrus Floating By


This year at Stamp Camp we had a What Would Sam Make? Shoebox Challenge. My team member Sam has won the What Would Marelle Make? Challenge for 3 years in a row and so this year she had the honour of being the challenge setter!

Sadly, I didn't win the challenge, but I did have fun making a card from all the ingredients in the box. This is what I came up with, using the We'll Walrus be Friends stamp set. It's such a cute set and all of the challenge cards were equally adorable.

CCMC583 Back on Your Feet


It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com. This week is a colour challenge, and these are the colours we had to work with:


I loved working with these colours! Three of my favourites, that I wouldn't have thought to put together. The trickiest part was choosing which stamp set was going to work with them. I decided to use the very cute Back on Your Feet stamp set, with this adorable turtle. 

I coloured the turtle with my Blends. How perfect is the Mosaic Embossing Folder with this stamp? It echoes the pattern of the turtle's shell beautifully. 

I hope you like my card! Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page

Blog Hop Number 11


Welcome to another Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop! This month we have a Sketch Challenge. You can make the complete circuit and see all the lovely creations by following the links at the end of each post.

Here is my take on the sketch:


I decided to use a "Halloween" set for my card this month, but I think these cute little guys from Boo to You can definitely be used all year! Mine is a birthday card and I couldn't decide which monster to use, so I decided on all 3. They are trying out their cheerleader formations! I coloured these guys with my Blends (Pool Party, Old Olive, Lovely Lipstick and Mango Melody). I've taken my colours from the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper pack, and used this fun abstract pattern.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set, and I've cut it out with a Stitched Shapes circle.

Well, that’s all from me. Thanks for stopping by! Click on the button below to move to the next stop:

CCMC582 Most Wonderful Time


It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com.
This week is a sketch challenge, and this is the sketch we had to work with:


To make this card, I've used the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley. You can see this on page 39 of the Holiday Catalogue. You get a whole lot of gorgeous products in this Medley - it includes stamps, paper, dies and accessories that are perfectly coordinated for creating cards and more. 

A Product Medley is similar to our cardmaking kits and other project kits but without the predetermined projects. That leaves you free to use yopur own creativity to make projects (or borrow the ideas of others in the Catalogue or Pinterest!!). 

The Medley includes:
* 11-piece photopolymer stamp set (clear blocks sold separately) 
* 48 sheets of 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, 8 each of 6 double-sided designs 
* 12 gold foil card fronts, 4 each of 3 designs 
* 6 sticker sheets, 2 sheets each of 3 designs 
* Gold/white tinsel trim, (9.1 m) 
* 58 adhesive-backed gold faceted stars 
* 6-piece Most Wonderful Time Dies 

To make this card, I used stickers and DSP from the Product Medley. The only part that I've stamped is the sentiment (from Itty Bitty Christmas). I softened the DSP with a piece of vellum. 

I hope you like my card. Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!

Sailing Home ShoeBox Swap


Today I have another Shoebox Swap card to show you.  This one was designed by my lovely team member, Cathy Humphries.

Cathy can always be counted on to contribute a fabulous masculine card design. I love this colour combo of Pretty Peacock, Sahara Sand and Soft Suede. It's difficult to tell from the picture, but there is a layer of Embossing Paste on the Stitched Rectangle. It adds some lovely texture to the card.

Thanks for visiting. Leave Cathy some comment love!

CCMC581 Floating By


It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com. This week is a colour challenge, and these are the colours we had to work with:


These colours just said "ocean" to me, so I decided to use the We'll Walrus be Friends stamp set. I coloured my Walrus friend using Blends, and popped him up on Dimensionals. The Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper has the perfect navy and white stripey pattern, and the Night of Navy Baker's Twine is the perfect embellishment....and of course I had to use the High Seas Embossing Folder in the background!

I hope you like my card! Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page

Wildly Happy Baby Girl


Baby cards would have to be one of my favourite types of cards to make. I think it's the combo of celebrating a brand new life and having the perfect excuse to go all-out cute!

The Wildly Happy stamp set is my go-to set for baby cards at the moment. It's such a sweet set, and I especially like it because it can be used for other occasions too.

This card was inspired by a beautiful ShoeBox Swap, designed by one of my lovely team members, Di Cruise. When I say "inspired by", I mean that I made so many boo-boos while making this card, that mine didn't end up looking much like her original card at all! But I always say that there are no mistakes in cardmaking - only embellishment opportunities!! I gave myself lots of embellishment opportunities here, and added lots of lace trimming. These colours are so soft and girly - Petal Pink and Very Vanilla. Now I just need someone to have a baby girl...any volunteers?
