Hope you have had a great weekend. We are into a new month. Can you believe it that July is here? Bonus Days are here during July so for every $90 spent (ex shipping) you will earn a $9 coupon which can be spent in August.
I’m sure over the past month you have been enjoying looking at the new catalogue and perhaps shopping from it. Today I’m looking at our project kits which are available in both the Annual Catalogue as well as the Beginner Catalogue. Some of these are all-inclusive project kits which means they include everything you need to complete the projects apart from your choice of adhesive. Others are Gather to Create project kits. For these you will need the accompanying stamp set, ink pads, adhesives and other tools to complete the projects in the kit. The For the Love of Felt Project Kit is one such kit.
This kit drew me with it’s 3D felt flowers and bright and cheery colours as it’s so different to our other kits. The felt flowers are a lovely element which adds so much interest to these projects. With a colour palette of Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Lovely Lipstick, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Sahara Sand and Shaded Spruce, these cards create a feeling of fun and happiness.
There are a variety of sentiments in the For the Love of Felt stamp set. This sentiment of ‘you make an ordinary day special’ is sure to brighten someone’s day. The flowers come ready assembled so all you need to do is attach it to your card.
The leaves and yellow flowers come die cut on a sheet so all that needs to be done is pop them out of the sheet of card. These cards are so quick to make. This makes it easy for you to have a nice stash of cards ready for a variety of occasions in a short time.
This is a very easy stamp set to create with and that bunch of leaves is my favourite. It creates maximum impact with little effort. I love the effect of stamping this around the edges to create the border on this card.
Get the kit and the coordinating products to start creating these beautiful cards at home. You could also get some friends together and have a craft get together. I could bring the stamp set and ink pads and you could complete all your kits.
Completed kit gives you 12 cards – 4 each of 3 designs. You can store your cards in the beautiful box the kit comes in. Purchase the kit, stamp set and an adhesive and you will earn yourself a Bonus Days coupon. It’s as easy as that.

I’ve got a note card set for you today using a lovely set of Scalloped Note Cards and Envelopes from the new cataloue.
Both the envelopes and note cards have a dainty scalloped edging and there are 5 each of Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Light Pink and Terracotta Tile. This gives you 20 note cards and envelopes for $14.00 which makes it .70 cents a set.
Decorating these were easy with the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. The colours were just perfect for these note cards. I used the same simple layout on all the cards.
The other day I spent a bit of time fussy cutting several images from these papers. I mixed and matched the birds with my cards today.
I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut my frames. For the bottom layer I first tried Basic Black but felt that was too harsh so opted for Basic Gray and liked this much better as it was a softer look.
First card is Old Olive and I’ve added the lovely floral paper on the base.
This is the Light Pink card and for my die cut square I used Petal Pink which coordinated with the paper I had used for the background. Are you loving the designs on the paper as much as I am?
Terracotta Tile card base but I did my die cut square in Calypso Coral. Can you tell? Someone didn’t read the back of the pack very well!
A Balmy Blue card with a pretty blue bird to match.
The Gingham Gala sequins came in just the right colours to embellish these 4 cards. Stampin’ Up! are spot on for coordination. I used the Itty Bitty Birthdays and Detailed with Love (retired but I had missed moving it out of my currents) stamp sets for the sentiments to cover a variety of occasions.
All products used to create these quick cards are listed below, where you can shop at my online store or contact me to place an order.
With only 2 days left to secure this beautiful product, I just had to share a card made with products from the Everything is Rosy Product Medley. This is the ultimate papercrafting kit. Complete with a stamp set, matching dies, die cut elements and tags, 2 spools of ribbon, Rose Gold accented Designer Series Paper, Rose Gold foil sheets, Rose Gold mirror embellishments, Rose Gold shimmer paint – it’s got it all for the avid crafter. Did I say Rose Gold?
And Rosy doesn’t restrict you to pink. Click HERE to see a project using a very different colour scheme. The stamps and dies allow you to create in any colour scheme you fancy.
This is a thank you card I made for a friend of mine. I used the Stitched Rectangle Framelits for the insert. These framelits are a favourite of mine in the craft room and the stitching gives just enough detail to add texture to these layers. This layout is perfect for showing both sides of this beautiful paper, don’t you think?
Although the frame looks like it has dimension it actually has been adhered with liquid glue. Offsetting panels of paper this way gives the look of depth. I then stamped the sentiment onto one of the die cut tags that come in the Product Medley. By aligning it to the left, it then allowed me to place the die cut flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the right to work in with the mini Rose Gold flowers which are on the tag.. A Rose Gold mirror embellishment adds an elegant finish to the sentiment.

Hello crafty friends,
Thank you for stopping by my blog to see what I have created for you today. Stepping it up with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley is easy. With so many products to choose from, you can create everything from simple projects to very detailed. My card is definitely not so Rosy today. I have gone with shades of green and brown for some nature-inspired colours. For my card base I used the retiring In-Colour – Tranquil Tide.
The inspiration for my layout is taken from the brand new Annual Catalogue which will be available on 4th June. I chose the ard in the top left with the anchor for my sketch. I liked the borders on the sides of the card.
Please contact me on Ph: 0404 255 001 to request a copy of the catalogue.
Tranquil Tide Card Base 21 x 14.8cm (scored in half)
Wood Textures DSP 14.8 x 10.5cm
Old Olive DSP 8.5x 2.5cm
This card is great for the beginner with a little bit of stamping and added elements to create a quick and easy card. I started off by stamping the leaves right along both edges of the Designer Paper in Old Olive. Photopolymer stamps make it easy to create a border like this as you can see through it.
Stamping on patterned paper gives you added design and texture to your projects. The Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) has so many textured images in it that it can be used for all types of projects.
The sentiment was stamped onto a pre-cut label from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit. This Kit comes in a lovely presentation box with the Stampin’ Up Statement of the Heart printed on top. The silver flower is also from this kit and adds a lovely finishing touch to this #simplestamping card.
* 4 large labels
* 8 small labels
* 8 yards (7.3 m) Tranquil Tide Baker’s Twine
* 8 yards (7.3 m) pearlised thread
* 8 silver adhesive-backed roses
* 8 silver paper clips
* 8 Grapefruit Grove paper clips
* 1 designer box, 6″ x 4-3/4″ x 1″ (15.2 x 12 x 2.5 cm)
I stepped this card up a little bit by adding some stamped flowers in Soft Suede and leaves in Tranquil Tide behind the sentiment. These stamps are so beautiful and I really like the Soft Suede version of these flowers. I added some twine from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit to complete this card.
Whisper White cardstock 10.8 x 2.8cm
Basic Black cardstock 11.4 x 3.4cm
My card for the avid crafter utilizes the beautiful dies that come in the Everything is Rosy Product Medley. I stamped the flowers in Soft Suede onto Soft Suede cardstock. The leaves have been stamped in Tranquil Tide onto Old Olive cardstock which gives it a lovely two-tone effect.
The additional leaves are die cut from Tranquil Tide cardstock. Although they look similar to the leaves that are stamped behind on the Desginer Series Paper, it doesn’t cut out the stamped image – it’s completely different. However, it works together with the stamp to create a fuller look.
To break the greens and browns up I wanted a black and white paper. However I had nothing to match which was current, so I created my own with the handwritten background stamp. This is a stamp which I haven’t used much but I am loving this look in black as it added just what I wanted to make those flowers stand out.
The sentiment was heat embossed with Clear embossing powder to make it pop against the flowers. I created a bow by wrapping twine 3 times around my fingers and tying it off. Then I added the braided linen which really works well with the Wood Textures DSP.
The Everything is Rosy Product Medley has it all for creating the most beautiful projects. Today I only used some of the stamps and dies so you can imagine how much more you could do with the entire kit. All items I used for these cards are listed below. Any items marked in red are retiring and are only available while stocks last or until 3rd June.
Have a lovely week.
The Bloom by Bloom stamp is featured in my April Class in the Mail. With many images of flowers, some a little bit abstract, they make it so easy to create focal images and backgrounds alike. Combined with the Bitty Blooms punch pack they make some fun projects and you save 10% buying them as a bundle. This set is on the retiring list so get it while you can.
This particular set has become more appealing to me as I’ve used it in softer, pastel shades. I love this flower in Highland Heather, Balmy Blue, Blushing Bride and lighter colours. This card is based on a simple sketch and combines Highland Heather, Gray Granite and Whisper White.I love the soft look of this combination of colours.
I’ve stamped the flowers in Highland Heather on the card base. Then I added a panel of Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals range. The Dot to Dot Embossing Folder adds the base for my flower. Embossing folders are such an easy way to add texture to projects.
I’ve added some Gray Granite ribbon which has been tied off in a knot together with the tulle ribbon to add to the softness of this card. The sentiment is from Banners for You stamp set which will be retiring along with the matching Bunch of Banners dies.

As we commemorate ANZAC day, we do so with gratitude for the sacrifice that was and continues to be made by men and women to keep us safe in this blessed land we call home – Australia. I think of the families of those who serve our country. They are without a husband, wife, dad, mum, son, daughter, brother, sister – all their lives are affected by wars and conflict when their loved one is serving their country.
To all these wonderful people who have served and continue to serve our nation, Thank You,
Today I’ve come up with a simple Thank You card using the One for All stamp. Do you buy stamp sets that sit there uninked and then they retire? Well, this was one of mine. I have used the Stamparatus so I didn’t have to move the stamp at all when I re-inked for the different colours. Post-it-Notes were used to mask off the sentiment when I inked up the leaves- first in Pear Pizzazz and then I added some Mossy Meadow with a sponge dauber.
I masked off the leaves and then stamped the sentiment in Black Stazon ink. The Stamparatus makes it so easy when stamping mutliples times.
The poppies were so simple to create with the Bitty Blooms punch pack. The centres were punched out as well and glue dots were my best friend in this process.
I die cut several leaves from Glossy cardstock and sponged a mix of Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow over it. Adding the darker leaves at the back gave it depth.The base card has been embossed with the Subtle embossing folder for that little bit of texture without taking away from the main image. It’s hard to pick up on a photo sometimes because it’s that subtle!. It has a lovely look of linen card and works for all types of cards.
Hope you have a wonderful day and be filled with thanks.
