Hello and welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday final blog hop for 2022. As the year comes to a close and we embark on a new year, our theme of Something New, Something Old is very fitting. We’re especially focusing on something we haven’t used in our stash.
Now, I do have stamp sets from our Annual catalogue which are yet to be inked up but I couldn’t go past using something from the upcoming January – April Catalogue for my new product. The By the Bay suite had me as I opened the catalogue. I have a fondness for all sets that are beachy and this suite was the first product I purchased from this catalogue.
The By the Bay Specialty Designer Series Paper provides my background and it is just stunning with it’s Gold and Pearl Foil detail.
The Basic Borders Dies create the waves. I die cut 2 sets – one in Basic White and one in Coastal Cabana which I blended with Night of Navy ink.
A sentiment heat embossed in Gold on Vellum adds softness to this card without detracting from the pretty paper.
I hope you have enjoyed this card using a sneak peek from the new catalogue and that it inspires you to use a yet-to-be-used product on your next creation.
You will be able to order the products from the By the Bay suite starting 5th January or you can add it to a Starter Kit today.
Thank you for stopping by and visiting me in Melbourne. Next on our trip Around the World is the wonderfully talented Cheryll Miller.

The By the Bay stamp set has got to be one of my favourite items from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue. I love the serene images and that house overlooking the water looks so peaceful.
First glance at this stamp set can be a little bit daunting. Well, it was for me anyway because all I could see was colouring. I love colouring and have enjoyed colouring in these images. However, I really wanted to find another way of using it which took less time but still achieved a great result. So this is how today’s card came about.
I stamped the image in Early Espresso ink and distressed the edges with a sponge dauber using Crumb Cake and Early Espresso. This created the vintage feel to the image. Tearing the edges of the Designer Series Paper also gives the aged look. To achieve this in a fairly straight line, hold your left index finger close to the edge of the paper while ripping it with your right hand. This guides the direction of the paper somewhat.
I stamped the shell, coloured it with the Caypso Coral watercolour pencil and fussy cut it before attaching it with liquid glue. This just adds a nice touch of colour along with the Coastal Cabana doily.
The sentiment was embossed with White Embossing Powder on Early Espresso cardstock and gives a bit of the beach feel with the linen thread that I’ve used to ‘hang’ it.
You’ve still got a few days left to get this stamp set FREE during Sale-A-Bration. If you’re not sure what this is all about – ask me for details.
Want it All?

Step-it-Up Sunday is back with a Sale-A-Bration stamp set. The beautiful By the Bay stamp set is a free Sale-A-Bration production you can earn with any $90 purchase during this promotion. There are some lovely beach images of seagulls, a seashell and a house by the sea which is beautiful and tranquil. There are so many ways to feature these on cards either by themselves or paired with other stamp sets. This was one of the first sets that caught my eye in this catalogue and as I live close to the beach, it was a definite ‘must have’.
I’ve teamed up this stamp set today with Home to Roost which is another Sale-A-Bration offering. It’s got an image of a rooster, the reeds which I’ve used on these cards and some great sentiments. I think Stampin’ Up! have come up with a fabulous range of Sale-A-Bration items to choose from this season.
To create this card, layer the Basic Gray cardstock on your Balmy Blue card base. Stamp the image in Stazon ink on Whisper White cardstock. Highlight some areas of the image with some basic colouring in with water colours. Use an aqua brush to soften the edges of the lines (this is optional). You don’t need to spend too much time on the colouring. Just enough to bring out a few elements of the picture.
Stamp the reeds and sentiment in Early Espresso.
Add some texture to the Whisper White layer by embossing it with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. Using the edge of the Smoky Slate ink pad (the edge without a lip) run the ink pad down the embossing of the cardstock. Run it bottom to top as well. Do the same with the Balmy Blue ink pad. This gives it a beachy feel with the distressed look.
Stamp the reeds on top of this with Early Espresso ink. I could have done this prior to embossing however I liked the look of this.
Die cut the circles, stamp part of the image and colour sections of it. Stamp the sentiment and punch out with the Classic Label punch. To shorten the label, insert one side back into the punch and this will give you a shorter label.
To step this card up, colour in the image in detail. Die cut 2 labels and attach in the top right corner. adding the linen ribbon which has been frayed.
Hope you give some of these ideas and techniques a try. I’d love to hear from you with feedback and enquiries.
