Power of Hope Stamp Set Stampin' Up! Lily Impressions 2020 Saleabration Christina Barnes Dot Dot Stamping

The white layer in the background of my cards has been embossed using the Stone 3D Embossing folder from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue, then the top two layers have been die cut with the Stitched Rectangle Dies, the middle layer in Pretty Peacock.
I have stamped the image onto some of the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-Bration) and cut out the dress, before adhering to the stamped image on the white cardstock.
Here is the inside of my card:

And then I have made a second one in Melon Mambo and using the same Designer Series Paper.

Last day of Sale-a-Bration

Last chance today to pick up some of the gorgeous free stuff that is available during Sale-a-Bration.  Lots of gorgeous stuff this year, it is hard to choose a favourite, but this cute little stamp set has to be one of them…..

It’s called Patterned Occasions and I think it is a really versatile set.  Just a simple set of cards, but the images are pretty cute!
If you would like to get this set for free, or any of the other products that are available, all you need to do is contact me today with your order and payment worth $100.  The order must be placed today, as these will not be available come tomorrow!  And for every $100 you spend you get 1 free product.  And there’s lots to choose from this year, stamp sets, papers, punches…….


Anyway, send me an email or give me a call.
Happy stamping!
Chris

Patterned Occasions

I couldn’t resist this gorgeous stamp set, called Patterned Occasions, mainly because of the cute little Ellie…. isn’t he gorgeous?
So I have spent some of my morning making up some thank you cards for my customers. I have also used the Sycamore Street papers – love the colours!

Don’t forget, you can also get this stamp set, and also the papers, during the Sale-a-Bration promotion, between now and the 22nd March.  You get one product free for every $100 spent, and there are heaps of lovely things that you can get free.  Love it!
Just send me an email if you would like to make the most of the Sale-a-Bration promotion, and place an order.

Sorry for the short post today, I am a little weary, having spent the weekend in Sydney.  Be back real soon with some yummy new stuff from the new catalogue (rubbing hands together!) 🙂
Happy stamping!

An exciting day!!

I have been so excited about today, the 1st February seems to have been a long time in coming, but finally it has arrived, with so many exciting things happening.
The most exciting news, for me anyway, is that I have once again signed up as a demonstrator with Stampin’ Up!  Such a wonderful company, and I have missed being part of it very much.

Today is also the day when you can start ordering from the gorgeous 2013 Seasonal Catalogue – sooooo much beautiful stuff in there!  Here is a link to it if you would like to browse.  If you would like a hard copy of the catalogue, just drop me an email with your address and I will get one out to you.

So, in honour of the new goodies available, and my new status as a demonstrator, I am offering free shipping  on any order over $40 placed between today (1st Feb 2013) and 5pm on Wed 6th Feb 2013 (within Australia only, please).  All orders also receive a free gift from me, and of course, if your order is over $100 you will also get to choose free product from this year’s Sale-a-Bration catalogue.

That’s enough of my excitement for one day, but I will be back to share some creativity with you really soon.  Happy stamping!

Scrapbooking again

Yes, I have finally started to do some scrapbooking again, after well over a year of being scrapbook-less.?.?..  either through complete lack of inspiration or just the need to do other things. 
I have used a sketch challenge from Our Creative Corner for my scrapbook page today.  I think I will have to make a card using this sketch too!
I am doing a set of pages looking back on all of the things that we have been through, both positive and negative, over the past 12 months, so most of the journalling will be out of sight. 
Once again I have used the Everyday Enchantment DSP for this page, and also the Fresh Vintage stamp set. 

We are in the process of moving house at present, so there may be some gaps in blogging for a couple of weeks, but I intend to keep stamping and scrapping in between days of moving and cleaning, so I will try to keep posting my creations.
Happy stamping!
Chris
PS Here is the sketch:

“My Thoughts” Card

I am very happy to be able to tell you that the long spell of hot weather we have been having here is at an end, as of tomorrow.  And while it has given me an excuse to stay in doors in the middle of the day and do some stamping, it is starting to get to everyone.  So the cooler weather will be a relief.
And on top of that, kids are all back at school tomorrow.  For us homeschoolers, that means we get the parks, playgrounds, beaches and zoos etc back to ourselves, to visit without heaps of other people there.  They become “our” parks again 🙂  That’s not to say we avoid other people, but some things are just much more enjoyable when you can take your time, browse, play and just spend as much time as you want to without rushing and pushing.

Anyway, today’s card uses more of the Everyday Enchantment DSP, along with the Field Flowers stamp set, which is my absolute favourite set.  And I have used the Big Shot and Top Note Die (another favourite), along with some sponging and faux stitching.
I had best go and do some stamping while I have the chance – park day tomorrow!!
Happy stamping!
Chris

Everyday Enchantment

Firstly, let me wish all you Aussie’s a Happy Australia Day!
Just a quick post today, to share another card made with the gorgeous Everyday Enchantment papers.
Often, when I am lacking inspiration (which seems to be happening regularly at the moment) I go to the blog of the very talented Jenny Moors, Stamping Moments.  Jenny does some fantastic and very reasonably priced stamp classes, and when I need that bit of inspiration, I buy one of her classes and just follow along with her instructions.  Most of the time, it gets me back into the flow of things.
So, this particular card is part of her Fresh Vintage stamp class, although as often happens with me, not quite exactly the same!
So thank you Jenny, for your ongoing inspiration. 
The card uses the Fresh Vintage Stamp Set and of course, the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Papers, both available from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue.
Happy Stamping!
Chris
