Hardwood Stamp-a-Stack

Just one of the many things that I love about being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, is seeing just how much chaos a group of ladies can make with cardboard, ink and punches!  Seeing them starting with pieces of cardstock that make no sense at all, and then seeing it all come together.  It always makes me smile!
So I want to thank all the ladies from the Time Out on Tuesdays group, who definitely made me smile this morning!
This set of cards was a little more difficult that I would usually design for a Stamp-a-Stack, however this particular group of ladies had all done some stamping and cardmaking before, so I thought a bit of a challenge wouldn’t hurt.  I think they all enjoyed themselves.
Anyway, here are the cards they made, all featuring the Hardwood background stamp.  This is a really versatile stamp, and I will definitely being showing you some more cute things to do with this stamp.

They made some pretty girly cards in different colours……..

As you can see, these ones also feature the Petite Petals and Papillon Potpourri stamp sets with their matching punches.

The sentiments come from the Wetlands stamp set…….
which we also used to do some cards with a more masculine flavour.

 

Thanks to all of the lovely ladies in the group, and a special thanks to Heather for organising everything.  I had heaps of fun!
Happy stamping!

Special Season

I haven’t really fallen of the face of the earth, just been rather busy…. a trip to the US in October, a bit of break from crafting and now it’s time to share some of the many creations I have been making over the last couple of weeks.
I absolutely love the Special Season stamp set in the current Seasonal Catalogue, and it has had a work out since it arrived!
Last night I held the first of two Christmas Stamp-a-Stacks, featuring… yes, you guessed it Special Season (Wood #131766, Clear #131769) combined with the traditional colours of the Season of Style DSP (#132340) papers.  Here are the cards that we made:

The sentiment on this first card comes from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set (Wood #130042, Clear #120024), which is framed with some of the Gold Foil Sheets (#132622).  You can be sure you will be seeing some more of the Gold and Silver foil, its a great way to add a touch of something special!

 

We had a lovely night, lots of laughs, and lots of stamping… what more can you ask for? 🙂
My next Stamp-a-Stack in on Wed  11th December at  7.30pm, so if you live in the Canberra area and would like to come along, send me an email.
I do have a lot more to share with you, but I think it can wait for another post.
If you would like to order any of the items I have used in these cards, you can do so here, just click on the “Shop Now” button at the bottom of the page.  And please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
Happy Stamping!

Wetlands Stamp-a-Stack

Here are the cards that we made at my Wetlands Stamp-a-Stack on Wed evening.  We all had a good time, lots of laughs, creativity and the lovely ladies went home with 6 cards each.

Keeping things short and sweet today, lots of “stuff” going on in my life at present, mostly to do with a new kitchen that is starting to take shape.  So crafting has taken a bit of a back seat for a while, but I assure that won’t continue for long!! 🙂  So keep checking back, I might even post some kitchen photos soon.

Happy stamping!
