Stampin' Up! Beautiful Friendship Single Layer Card

Hello stamping friends.

Today I have a really simple card for you, using the Beautiful Friendship stamp set from the 2019/2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I grabbed this stamp set when I needed to make a couple of quick birthday cards recently.

It's basically a one layer card, except for a small greeting (I used a greeting from Butterfly Wishes stamp set as it was a better size for my card; I do love the greetings which come with the Beautiful Friendship set though). I stamped directly onto Shimmery White cardstock, and cut a 2cm strip from the bottom of the front of the card, and added a strip of Soft Sea Foam patterned DSP (from the subtles 6x6 pack) to the base of the card.

Here's the colour combination I used with the stamping:

The greeting is stamped in Basic Gray, and cut out from one of the dies in the Detailed Bands die set (link at end of post), and I have added some 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots for embellishing.

Here's a closer look at the Beautiful Friendship  stamp set (also linked at the end of the post). It really is super easy to use, You just keep on adding layers of flowers and leaves and you are done. The stamp set is Photopolymer so it's super easy to line up as well.

The great news is that this stamp set is just $38 (link at the end of the post), so a great one to add to your collection and a stamp set I think you will reach for again and again.

Stampin' Up! OnStage 2019 Sydney Recap

I had a fabulous couple of days attending Stampin' Up!'s OnStage event in Sydney last Friday and Saturday. Here's a quick recap!

Centre Stage - Friday Night 15th November

Friday night was Centre Stage, a celebration event for the leaders in the company. This was a lovely dinner and opportunity to mingle and chat over a lovely meal. I love this opportunity to gather with the leaders in my team (we were missing you Sue and Rachel). Here we are with our MC for the event, and corporate team member, Scott Nielson. Stampin' Up!'s CFO who was lots of fun.


We were spoilt with a lovely new stamp set and gift, and I also received a necklace and voucher for ranking among the top achievers in the country. I love the way they decorate our tables and theme the events.


It's also a great opportunity to catch up with friends! Even though Simone Bartrum and I both live in Victoria, we don't see each other nearly enough.

Sim and I BW

It was a warm day in Sydney on the Friday and people were out and about enjoying Darling Harbour as I walked back to my hotel. I think a few of my team mates were lying in wait for me as they knew I was given the new catalogues early. This was a pretty funny moment.




Next it was back to the hotel to TRY and resist staying up all night reading the fabulous new catalogues!!

2020 Jan Mini Occasions

OnStage - Saturday 16th November

We were up bright and early ready to hit the ground running for the one day event for all demonstrators. We had nearly 700 attend in Sydney.


As usual the theming and gifts were amazing. I loved the colours in this years theme which was based around our new Peacefup Poppies suite.




The lovely ladies in the Art with Heart team love to get together at events. We had lots in the team at Sydney, and a small group in Perth as well.

Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas Week 12 - Sharing the joy of a handmade Christmas.

Heart of christmas 2019 full size


Welcome to week 12 of Heart of Christmas from the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team. We hope you are feeling inspired by these weekly blog hops.

This week I have showcased some more cards using the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley that I also created with last week. I'm finding it so quick and easy to create using this medley.

This one uses one of my most favourite pieces of DSP from this kit. I love the subtle colours with the hint of gold foil on the antlers.

I love the touch of festive that the white and gold trim brings to this medley. I love those berries on the stickers too. I didn't do it on this one, but it would be great to add Crystal Effects to these.

This one is a little more clean and simple. I used an oval template to create a Seaside Spray sponged oval and then stamped the trees over the top of that.

I hope this has given you some more ideas about how to use the Most Wonderful Time product medley. It's a great collection of coordinating products and super easy to create with as it has everything you need.
