Hello there, it’s Sunday here in Melbourne and that means I’m in my craft room while the rest of the house is sleeping in! I love the quiet time to be able to create and get myself ready for the week ahead.
When I saw this sketch, I knew exactly the stamp set i wanted to use – Your Next Stamp’s ‘Photo Booth’. I die cut some squares from my frint panel and stamped 3 of the images on the background card, then coloured them with my Stampin Blends, added the sentiment to the top panel and mu9nted it with foam tape.
I used a stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays called ‘Be a Unicorn’ which lends itself beautifully to this colour combination. I stamped the unicron and then ink smooshed the colours over her, added the sentiment, a bit of gold ink to the horn, then mounted the panel on a white card base and the card was done.
Well, seems like the rest of the house is waking up so time to pack up my crafty goodies.
Well hello and welcome to today’s post. For the month of August I am a Guest Designer over at Just Us Girls. I’m so excited as I love their challenges and can’t wait for you to see what I and the other DTs will be creating over the next 5 weeks!
So, let’s get started with this week’s challenge, which is a word challenge – SUMMER!
Now, I wasn’t feeling very summery as we’re in the middle of winter here and everything is grey and cold, but my favourite thing about summer is being able to wear my thongs (or as they’re called in the US flip flops) and walk along the beach.
I stamped the thongs from the Simon Says Stamp set called ‘Flip Flop Season’, coloured them in with my SU Granny Apple Green Stampin Blend and fussy cut them out. I then added some beach with some sand I had in my stash and a sentiment from ‘By the Seaside’ which came with a craft magazine.
Check out the Just Us Girls challenge blog for links to the other fabulous projects from the DT and come join in our fun and share your project by 11am Friday 9th August (Melbourne time) or 9pm Thursday 8th August (US Eastern Standard time) .
I created a rainbow alcohol ink panel and then die cut a sentiment from the centre. I popped up the outside piece to provide some depth. I mounted all pieces onto a black card base.
Come join in the fun and make a card for any event.

I used a stamp set called ‘Bright & Breezy’ from Stamps by Chloe that came with a craft magazine. It has some fun images and sayings which were perfect for these challenges. I stamped the bra, coloured it with my Stampin Blends and fussy cut it out. Added it to my card base with the sentiment and I was done.
Now, a snowboard might be a stretch for the transport theme but it can get you from A (the top of the mountain) to B (the bottom of the mountain). I printed the snowboarder from an old SU digital image and then fussy cut it out. I added it to a panel with some ink smooshing and puffy paint to look like snow. The sentiment is from Pretty Cute Stamps called ‘Super sentiments’ and fits nicely.
This was a cute sketch to play with and I decided to make a new baby card using a cute bee hive and buzzing bees. I had these guys as digital images on my PC, so printed them out, coloured them in , fussy cut them out, mounted them with foam tape and my card was done.
I used a digital stamp I’ve had for a while From the Heart Stamps called ‘Surf’s Up Birdbrain’. I printed it and coloured it with my Stampin Blends and added some puffy pain for the foam of the waves. I love this cheeky chick!
Well, that’s it for today. Thanks for looking and have a great day.
Today I used a new stamp set from Stampin Up called ‘Floral Essence’ which I inked up in the SU ink colours of Rococo rose, Terracotta tile, Granny apple green and So saffron.
I just love how this card came out and I have a friend in mind to send this to that could do with some cheering up.

Well hello there, I’ve been in my craft room again getting ready for a card class I’m holding tomorrow. I like to mix up the cards the girls will make so think these 3 are all very different, yet easy considering we chat alot when we meet.
I cut out the 3 square layers and laid them out following the sketch and then stamped my floral image from Concord & 9th ‘Hello lovely’ stamp over the 3 layers. I then coloured the bottom layer and the top layer only, so when I put it back together it has a bit of a spotlight effect.
