Floating Penguins!


I'm pretty sure I CaSEd this card, but now I cannot find the original. So if you recognise it, please let me know! I made this a birthday card, but I think it would make a cute baby card too.

I had fun colouring all the little penguins and balloons (from the Count on Me stamp set) using Blends. I used Flirty Flamingo for my pop of colour, but you could use any colour you like.

Playing with Pattern Party


I have another CaSEd card to share with you today. This is a copy of a card by Mary Fish. I just love the crisp, clean lines and bright colours, so I didn't change much.

This is the Pattern Party Host DSP (page 171 of the Catalogue). I grab this pack a lot. It's got black and white designs on one side and rainbow colours on the other.

You can see all the other supplies I've used listed below. Have a great day!

Colour and Contour


This was a fun card to CaSE. It's from page 98 of the Annual Catalogue. There aren't many layers or embellishments, just "layers" of delicate sponging to highlight the stamped flowers.

This is the Color & Contour stamp set, and co-ordinating dies. I used the Blending Brushes to add the sponged detail in Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink, Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent. I used Stampin' Blends to colour the centre of each flower and also used Wink of Stella over the top, for some subtle shimmer.

Thanks for stopping by!

Lovely You


This is a CaSE of the card on page 36 of the catalogue. I only changed a few things, to make it my own. Next time you're feeling uninspired, grab the catalogue - it's full of ideas!

The colour combo is Crumb Cake, Merry Merlot, Old Olive and Blushing Bride. I've used the Lovely You stamp set, plus In Symmetry for the sentiment. You can see the other items I've used listed below. Just click on the pictures for more information.

Gingerbread & Peppermint


I can't believe we are only a month away from Christmas Day and this is the first Christmas card I've posted this year. I think that just about sums up this year... so many months were swallowed up by COVID lockdown that I feel like it should only be September. So, as a result I'm hopelessly disorganised, have barely made any Christmas cards, have done no Christmas shopping, and am starting to panic!

Making this card was just like playing with stickers. There's no stamping at all, just some Designer Series Paper backgrounds (from Gingerbread & Peppermint and In Good Taste) and then I arranged my fun cookie-baking scene on top, using elements from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Memories and More card pack. So much fun! And so quick and easy.

I love this Stampin' Up! card, made using the Gingerbread & Peppermint Cards and Envelopes, along with the Card Pack:


I might have to whip up a batch of these!

Flowers of Friendship


I love a stamp set and punch bundle! They always make for quick and easy cards. In this case, the Flowers & Leaves punch is a builder punch, so it punches out the 2 flowers and 2 leaves as well, in one single punch! When I'm making a few cards at a time, I always take the time to line up my stamps on one block so I can punch all the images out at once. (Click here to watch a video if you don't know how)

I made a batch of these for some customer thank you cards. I used 4 of the 5 most recent In Colors on this one, but I made some monochromatic ones too.

This card was CaSEd from a card by Mary Fish. I love her simple but classy style.

Birthday Expressions


Just a quick one from me today. We are in the middle of crazy birthday month in our house. In November we have a ton of family birthdays, and this year a couple of 'big' milestone birthdays too. First was Dave's 50th, then his Mum's 85th, next will be my twin niece's 13th and then Jacob's 21st. It's fun but also somewhat exhausting!! At least lockdown has lifted now and we are able to celebrate them all.

With all those birthdays, I needed some quick, any-age, any-gender cards that still looked a bit special. Expressions in Ink DSP to the rescue! (again!). I made these in a mixture of colours from the DSP, using the pieces with gold running through them. I added more gold, by embossing the word 'happy' and also adding some gold trim.

The Biggest Wish stamp set is perfect when you want to make a big impact!

Floral Congratulations

I love a white background...it really makes a card feel so fresh and bright. Here I've just added a pop of Fresh Freesia and a little splash of Soft Succulent. This is the Color & Contour stamp set. I must confess that I bought the Color & Contour Bundle primarily for the dies, and the stamp set was just a nice bonus. But now I find myself using it a lot! It's great because it's a 2-step stamp set, so you have an outline image and a 'fill-in' image. You can stamp the outline and add your own colour, using your favourite colouring tool, or just grab the co-ordinating 'fill-in' stamp and it's super quick and easy

I thought this would make a nice wedding or engagement card. You can see everything else I've used listed below.

Thanks for stopping by!
