Stampin' Up! Nine Lives Stamp Set from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.

Hey there crafty friends. It's lovely to be back blogging. Thanks for hanging in there with me while I had a break with the family and settled the boys back into school. These holidays were a little different for us, as my husband left his job of 30 years in early December, so he has had an opportunity to have a really good break before he starts looking for a new role. It's been lovely family time, and we also traveled interstate to Perth to spend time with my Mum and sisters and their families which was really lovely.

Time to get back into some regular blogging though! I made this card last week for a girlfriend who loves her cats. The Nine Lives stamp set coordinates perfectly with the Cat Punch from the Annual Catalogue.

The Rectangle Stitched Framelits make crafting so much easier! Lots of great options for layers and frames, and the stitching really adds interest I think. I just love the little bits and pieces included in the Nine Lives stamp set. I went for the roll of twine, as my own kitty always manages to find my rolls of bakers twine if I leave it our on my craft desk.

You can find the links to all of the products at the bottom of the post, but I wanted to give you a quick look at the awesomely cute Nine Lives Stamp Set, and the coordinating Cat Punch. I love this two (or three) step stamp. It's Photopolymer, so super easy to line up and it's only $25.00.

The stamp set I used is Making Spirits Bright from the Stampin' Up! 2018 Holiday Catalogue. All products are available to purchase in my Online Stampin' Up! store.

Week 18 AWHT Colour Creations Blog Hop - Fresh Fig

  Colour Creations 300

Fresh Fig color

Welcome to week 18 of Colour Creations from the Art with Heart Team. This week's colour is one of the 2017 Incolours, Fresh Frig. It's a beautiful deep colour which I love! It's actually quite similar to the colour of my bridesmaid dresses many years ago. Today I have used it with Soft Sea Foam, Powdered Pink and Bermuda Bay.

I love colouring this bauble. We don't have Fresh Fig or Powdered Pink Stampin' Blends, so I used light Blackberry Bliss and light Flirty Flamingo respectively. I have added some texture after the colouring, by running it through the Subtle embossing folder in the BigShot. The other embossing folder used on the Powder Pink layer is Tufted, which was a new one in this years Annual Catalogue. I have already used it so much!

Week 16 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Early Espresso

Colour Creations 300

Early Espresso

 

Here's my card for this week, using one of my all time favourite Christmas colour combinations: Early Espresso, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake. I have used the Festive Farmhouse Suite from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Catalogue.

I definitely wouldn't call this a 'do in bulk' Christmas card, but I had lots of fun making the Christmas farmhouse scene and doing the paper piecing on the house. I used two different sheets of the Wood Texture 6x6" DSP pack for the house, with the darker sheet for the roof and shutters. I love the fence and all the bits and pieces that come in the Framelits.

Stampin' Up! Time for Tea

There's something about a cup of tea isn't there? I think it makes me instantly thing of relaxing, soothing and happy catch ups. I think it's because of this association that I always tend to be drawn to any creative supplies with a tea theme too.

Here's a card I created using the Time for Tea bundle in the 2018/2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up, 2018 Annual Catalogue, Time for Tea, Tufted Embossing Folder, Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

My colour combination is Mint Macaron, Blushing Bride, Soft Seafoam and Whisper White.
