Welcome to my blog on this Mother’s Day. I hope you are enjoying your day, celebrating in whatever capacity you can. I am enjoying my day with my daughter Cassidy who has made some lovely scrolls this afternoon and is also preparing dinner for me tonight. Can’t wait! It’s nice to be spoiled isn’t it?
As it’s Mother’s Day, I chose the Music from the Heart stamp set in remembrance of my mother who used to be a music teacher and conducted choirs. I would have given this card to her with a Mother’s Day sentiment instead of the one I’ve chosen and I know she would have loved it.
I watercoloured the images from the Free as a Bird stamp set and fussy cut them. Then I arranged these together with some flowers from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit and copper leaves from the Flourish Dies. I just love the felt embellishments in the embellishment kit as they add so much texture to a project.
For the final touch, I stamped the keyboard in Gorgeous Grape and fussy cut it, laying it on top for my musical themed , bird song card..
I hope you have enjoyed my project and if you have been inspired by it, I would love for you to leave a comment. All the products I have used on this project are listed at the bottom of this post. Several of these items are on the retiring list so you are going to have to hurry so you don’t miss out.

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.
So, I created some birthday fun with my card and I think it has a bit of a disco look to it.
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?
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!

Welcome to my blog, Stamping Flair today. I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Blind Bight, Victoria. Today I am taking part in the Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop and we are hoping to inspire you to use your ribbon stash, through the projects we share.
I created this scrapbook page with my daughter Cassidy in mind. Cassidy loves music and she is currently studying music and plays clarinet, guitar, piano and she also sings. She wants to be a music teacher so I think this would make a lovely page for some photos of her doing what she loves.
My page started off with me selecting a stamp set. So I chose my favourite from the Mini Catalogue, Music from the Heart. My next decision was ribbon – oh, my don’t we have ribbon to choose from at Stampin’ Up!.
The Tri-Colour ribbon is a little bit different and I thought that would be nice to use on my scrapbook page. I added some tulle ribbon as well as the White Silver Metallic edge ribbon to create a feature on my page.
Then I coordinated this with the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper to add to the Purple Posy base.
I stamped the stave on the top of the Whisper White cardstock which created a border on the top of the page. The stamp is not this long but as it is photopolymer, it’s easy to line it up.
The Treble Clef and notes were added to finish the ‘piece’. I showed Cassidy my completed project and she loved it. She also correctly noted (in jest) that the Treble Clef was on the wrong side of the stave! LOL. So this is an artistic Treble Clef not a musical one!
You are currently visiting Rochelle Laird-Smith. All products I have used to create this scrapbook page are listed at the bottom of this post. I hope you have been inspired by my page to pull out all that ribbon that you have tucked away for special occasions and use them because all your creations are special.

Today I’m hopping with other demonstrators for the Kre8tors blog hop. I’m really glad that you are able to visit my blog to see what I’ve created.
We are using products from the 2020 Mini and Sale-A-Bration catalogues to create our projects. I chose a particular stamp set which stands out for me.
Apart from my love of papercrafting, all my life I have been surrounded by music. My mum was a music teacher and together with her and my sister, we used to sing trios at our church. My partner, Adrian is a music teacher and accompanist for choirs and my daughter also enjoys playing clarinet, guitar and singing. So I don’t think it’s a surprise that my favourite stamp set in the Mini Catalogue is Music from the Heart. I love the images and sentiments which are just so apt for the music lover.
I have created a fun set of note cards using this stamp set and focused on the hearts. It’s so easy to create lots of cards as there are a lot of images.
I’ve used the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper to create a colourful background. The clear Epoxy Heart droplets were coloured with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend. I coloured them with about 3 layers to get a good coverage.
I just love the sentiment of this next card – it’s bound to cheer someone’s spirits. Those birds are so cute and add just a lovely touch to the card.
This stamp set just makes cardmaking quick and I just couldn’t stop as I had so many ideas. The variety of stamps that come in this set make it so easy to do background stamping and create fun, individual patterns on paper.
I love this image of the grand piano with the heart and that sentiment would make it a great Valentine’s Day card.
Music from the Heart is a stamp set for all occasions. I hope this inspires you have a play with this beautiful stamp set which has been inspired by Million Sales Achiever Dawn Olchefske. Please leave me a comment as I love hearing from you.
