Simply Scored

Simply Scored playtime

I was having a play around with the new Simply Scored tool....and I tell you, it's fun!

There are so many cool uses for this tool...scoring cards, making 3D projects, making rosettes (like my cards  HERE and HERE)  or
simply adding detail to your cards like I have here.

I've used the Calypso Coral cardstock, Perfect Punches stamp set, Scallop Oval punch, Soft Suede ink, Itty Bitty Punches, and rhinestones
to make a quick card.

What do you think?

Calypso Adorning Accents

Here's a handful of cards I made for a recent team swap.
The theme was 'Mothers Day'

I've used Calypso Coral & Soft Suede cardstock,
the new Blossom Punch & 5 petal flower punch,
and the new Adorning Accents Embossing Folders from the Autumn-Winter Mini.

The sentiment is from the new 'Loving Thoughts' stamp set, stamped in Soft Suede.

I CASEd a card of Becky Roberts' for this project.   Check out Becky's blog HERE.

Thanks for popping in!

I Dig You Card

I had just the stamp set for a big Mr 4's Construction Party!

'I Dig You' is a super cool stamp set for the little fellas  :)

I've added some Neutral Designer Buttons for the wheels and 'rocks' :)

What's your 'go to' stamp set for kids' birthday cards?

Thanks for looking!

Quick Accents + Two Tags = Quick Tags!!

In need of a few quick tags for a little pile of birthday gifts,  I pulled out the Nursery Nest Quick Accent sheets, a couple of sentiment stamps and the Two Tags Die.

These tags are Crumb Cake Cardstock & I've used Hemp Twine as the tie.

Pretty cute huh!   And I've hardly dented the Quick Accents sheets - there's still heaps left for more of the same!

Check out all the Quick Accents Stampin' Up! have available on page 131 of the Idea Book & Catalogue.

(p.s. each of these matches a separate pack of DS Paper too - cool!)

Leave a comment to say hi if you've stopped by!

Mixed Bunch Mother's Day Card

Here's another card for you showing a couple of new Mini products.

I've embossed the base card (Riding Hood Red) with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder.

The centre panel is Confetti White Cardstock stamped with Perfect Plum, Riding Hood Red and Daffodil Delight

 (who would have thought these colours would look pretty good together??)

The stamp set is the Mixed Bunch stamp set (p21 of the Autumn-Winter Mini) and highlighted with Riding Hood Red Pleated Satin Ribbon and Pearls.

I have the Ribbon available in a Share this month - just click on the 'Product Share' tab at the top of the page for more details.

Thanks for stopping in!

If that's the case...

For a recent team swap, I CASEd a card from the new Autumn-Winter Mini as I didn't have any of the new stamp sets at that time.

Does this look anything like the card on page 14?

I've used the same colour scheme, but substituted stamps.

Stamps used:  Trendy Trees, Button Buddies, Tiny Tags

Thanks for popping in!

Open Sea in Review

For last month's class, we had a play with the 'Open Sea' stamp set and matching Nautical Expedition DS Paper.

These were fun to make, and this is one stamp set I'll be keeping for quite some time.


(this card was inspired by Alisa's creation HERE)

We made 2 cards (and even finished them off inside!! :) ) and a box using the Box #2 Bigshot Die.

The Stamp Set and papers are now unavailable, BUT the Bakers Twine is still available for purchase.

If you want to see what is still available from the recently finished Summer Mini, click on the link in the right column for the complete list.
