Product of the Week – Peaceful Deer Bundle

Each week on my Facebook Page I highlight a product showcasing projects and ideas with it. I didn’t want you to miss out on this regular feature so I will be sharing about each product with you as well each week.

This week’s product is the Peaceful Deer bundle. This has cute all over it, with the different reindeer which gives you options for creating scenes with the pine trees. It’s even got a sweet bunny in there. With a coordinating punch, this bundle is great for making quick and cute cards.

I mixed some products from the Mini and Annual Catalogues to create this card.

New at su Blog Hop – Ride the Range

Welcome to our New at SU Blog Hop where pur projects are featuring products from the January – June Mini Catalogue.

I have opened a new bundle for this blog hop – Ride the Range. When I first saw this in the catalogue I knew I had to have it. I just love all the farm, country style stamps. However, with so many beautiful products to play with, I’ve not had a chance to enjoy this set.

Ride the Range stamp set, Stampin' Up!, SU

I started by scoring a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock at 1/2″ and 1″ intervals. Then flipped the cardstock over so the opposite side of the scored lines were showing. Using my Cinnamon Cider ink pad, I ran the ink pad directly down the cardstock to create some wood-look streaks.

I used a combination of greens with Blending Brushes to create the grass which I adhered to a piece of Pool Party cardstock. This was then die cut with the circle die.

Now, I don’t use Cinnamon Cider as a card base much, as I find it a little heavy but I love the combination with Pool Party. I think everything works with Pool Party, don’t you? I stamped the sentiment on a piece of leftover cardstock from the grass which created a lovely ombre look.

Time for Tags Note Cards

Last 2 days of our 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue and 2020 Mini Catalogue and I just had to share with you some cards I created with the cute scalloped note cards. These cards come in Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Light Pink and Terracotta Tile. 

Balmy Blue Note card with Bonanza Buddies

I used the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper to create this set of cards. I just love that the variety of colours give me so much choice when it comes to coordinating DSP.

Bonanza Buddies DSP and Scalloped Note Cards

The sentiment uses the very cute Time for Tags stamp set which coordinates with the Timeless Label Punch. The Time for Tags stamp set is a Hostess stamp set which you still have time to earn with Stampin’ Rewards. With cute sentiments to suit lots of occasions, it makes great tags and some fun cards – as you can see.

I used the beautiful felt embellishments from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit in colours of Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Pacific Point which coordinate so well with the Birthday Bonanza paper.

Ink. Stamp. Share. Blog Hop – Colour Challenge

Hi friend,

Welcome to Stamping Flair on this ANZAC day. We have freedom because of the sacrifice made by so many. On ANZAC day 34 years ago, I migrated to Australia from Sri Lanka and I truly am blessed to be in this country. 

I’m taking part in the Ink. Stamp. Share blog hop with a colour challenge. I kept looking at these colours to work out what I was going to create.

Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop April 2020 Colour Challenge

The more I looked, it just reminded me of spring and Easter and I couldn’t do an Easter card as that was past and spring, well, it’s getting a bit chilly here! However, my favourite In-Colour from last year was there – Rococo Rose. I picked my stamp set to work with first and then built my card around it. 

I started off by stamping the birds in Stazon ink on Shimmery White cardstock and watercoloured the image using Rococo Rose, So Saffron and Granny Apple Green ink refills. The panel behind has been watercoloured with Highland Heather. Then I coloured the flowers with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Write Marker as I wanted it to be a little bit brighter. 

Free as a Bird stamp set, Handmade card with watercolouring


I wanted a strip of black and white Designer Series Paper under my image. My favourite Botanical Prints Medley had sold out and I wanted to use products that were available so I created my own DSP. I stamped a strip of Whisper White cardstock with the leaves from Very Versailles stamp set to create a custom black/white paper. (Note: Don’t delay getting your favourite items on the retiring list as they do tend to sell out).

I layered Best Dressed DSP and one of the die cuts from the Peaceful Poppies Elements to create the border. 


If elements that are hidden behind images don’t fit across your project, cut them up and adhere the 2 halves to fit on each side. This is what I did with the black Peaceful Poppies die cut border. It was a very short strip but I ‘extended’ it by cutting it in half to just show on the two ends.

My card has been inspired by the sketch challenge Just Add Ink and All About Occasions Challenge at WaterCooler Wednesday Challenges

I hope you have been inspired with the project I have shared. Colour challenges do get you thinking! I’d love to hear from you so please leave me a comment. All the products used to create this card are listed at the bottom of this post so you can create this card at home.

Joy of Sets Blog Hop – Birthdays

Hi crafty friends,

So glad that you are able to stop by my blog today. A very early, Happy Easter, from Melbourne to you. If it’s your first time visiting me, I hope that you have fun and enjoy looking around. For those who are regulars, I so appreciate you checking out my posts and interacting with me. We are celebrating birthdays at the Joy of Sets Blog Hop this month.

Joy of Sets Blog Hop, BirthdaysSo, I created some birthday fun with my card and I think it has a bit of a disco look to it.

Pigment sprinkles with silver heat embossing

I had so much fun creating this background. I started off by using my Stamparatus to align and stamp the streamers in Versamark all along the top half of the card. This was done on Shimmery White cardstock. Then I spritzed it with water and sprinkled Gorgeous Grape Pigment Sprinkles over it. Sometimes, I get impatient and blot it with a tissue to help it dry but this time I let it dry by itself. I love the beautiful patterns and colours it formed. Does’t it look fun?

Pigment sprinkle background with heat embossing

The piano was stamped in Tuxedo ink and coloured with HIghland Heather and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the heart section of the piano again in Stazon ink on silver foil and layered on top. 

The sentiment was stamped on a leftover piece of cardstock which had Pigment Sprinkles on it. I like the way this coordinated with the rest of the card. This card makes me smile because it’s a bit of fun and the cow looks like she’s having a good time!
