Colour Creations Week 32: Pacific Point & Stampin Up Let's Set Sail Bundle

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logoHi friends. I had a chance to do some creating on the weekend, so I am delighted to be able to participate in our weekly Art with Heart Team Colour Creations blog hop. Our team girls have lots of fun creating and sharing with you and each other, each week.

Today our colour is Pacific Point. This isn't a colour I tend to reach for very often, but I do like it. It's a nice bright blue.


This colour always makes me think of the ocean, so I have chosen the new Let's Set Sail Bundle for my card today. This bundle consists of a stamp set and coordinating punch.

This is a great new bundle. Punch bundles are usually quite a bit cheaper than die and stamp bundles, and I love the ease of just grabbing a punch instead of getting out my die cutting machine. This is a great stamp set for masculine cards, and has some versatile sentiments in a great font. I really like the different ocean stamps for grounding the sailing boat image too.

Here is my colour combination for today's card.

Colour Combination Pacific Point, Real Red, Basic Gray.

To make this card I started with a C6 top folding card in Basic White. I then cut another layer 10cm x 14.3cm and cut a circle in the centre using the second largest Layering Circle Die. I then embossed that piece with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder (emboss after you cut the circle for the best effect). I then cut a piece of Basic White cardstock slightly bigger than the die cut circle and blended some Pacific Point ink in an ombre pattern. This was adhered to the back of the die cut circle opening with some Tear and Tape. I then stamped the birds in Pacific Point ink at the top of the blending. This whole panel was attached to the card front using Dimensionals.

The ship is stamped in Basic Gray and the Sails in Real Read, and both cut out with the punch. I've adhered the sails with Dimensionals them up a little.

To finish my card I stamped the greeting in Basic Grey and cut it out with one of the Rectangle Stitched dies.

I then tied a double strand of White bakers twine to the top of the card.

Happy New Year & three exciting things happening today!

Hello my lovely friends and Happy New Year! 

As some of you have noticed, it's been a while since I have posted here. There hasn't been anything big happen (well other than a pandemic :(); I was just feeling worn out at the end of 2021 (as I am sure we all were) and really needed to slow down to recharge. I'll slowly be working my way into posting a bit more often in the coming weeks and back posting a bit more regularly when school is back. I do intend for 2022 to be a slower year for me though, with more me time, family time and time for self-care. I was definitely feeling a bit depleted mentally and physically at the end of last year and self-care is so important, especially now. You can count on me still to be here creating and posting in some capacity though. My motto for 2022 is "less but better".

Three exciting things are happening today, so I wanted to tell you all about them!


The first is that today is my 15th Anniversary as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator! What a privilege it has been to inspire you and create for you over that time, and to make so many amazing friendships with customers, team members, fellow demonstrators and Stampin' Up! staff globally. My life has been enriched by Stampin' Up! in many ways. Here's to many more of sharing the joy of living a creative life!


The second is that the 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue is now live! You can view the products HERE in my online store, or you can view it online / download to a device HERE. 

One slight downer is that global shipping is terrible right now, and retailers everywhere are being impacted with delays. There are a few items (7 out of the 56 stamp sets and 1 paper pack) that we are still waiting on so they are showing as unavailable in the store. This also impacts the bundles these products are in. Everything else is available though and I will update you as soon as these items arrive in.


The third is that Saleabration starts today and goes through until the end of February. You can earn free products with shopping and there is a great joining deal where you get an extra 2 free stamp sets of YOUR choice, in addition to the already great value starter kit. Read all about Saleabration HERE and see the products on offer. 

Unfortunately global shipping delays have impacted the delivery of some of the Saleabration items too.  You can see which ones are currently available HERE and HERE. I will update you as soon as I have any more news. It shouldn't be too long.

New month also means a new host code!
