Very Versailles

Hi everyone, sharing a card made using the Very Versailles stamp set.  I thought that I would use one of the stamp sets that was carried over from last year's Annual Catalogue.  With all the excitement with the new products, I sometimes forget to use these gorgeous stamps sets that I have in my stash.




I have gone with a monochromatic colour scheme of Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Whisper White with some Gold.

Zany Zebras

Hi everyone, hope you are all keeping safe.  We are fortunate here in Western Australia to be in Phase 4 of our roadmap to ease COVID-19 restrictions with Phase 5 scheduled for 18 July.  Life in Western Australia is nearly back to normal, a new normal with travel restrictions for overseas travel and interstate travel to the rest of Australia.  We live in an amazing part of Australia, so we will be holidaying at home in our beautiful State of Western Australia for the foreseeable future.

I have been rather busy at work the past few weeks with it being the end of the Financial Year in Australia so I have not had much time for creating.  You have probably noticed the lack of posts in the past two weeks, and this is the reason why.  My fingers were itching to get creating.

Today's post is a fun card made using the Zany Zebras stamp set.  How cute at these little guys or girls.


I have used two of the new 2020-2022 In Colors, Cinnamon Cider and Bumblebee.  The patterned paper is from the 2020-2022 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper pack.  I cut the circles using the two largest dies from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

The Zebra was stamped using Black Memento Ink, how easy is this no colouring involved.  Do not forget to stamp the ground image underneath, it finishes the image off perfectly.

The sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped using Cinnamon Cider ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and then die cut using the Tasteful Labels Dies. 

The background was embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  I love the texture that is created on a plan piece of Whisper White cardstock, it turns it into something amazing.

To finish my card I added a piece of Cinnamon Cider Twill Ribbon and some Rhinestones.

Birthday Flowers

Hi everyone, sharing another card using the Flowers for Every Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper Pack.

I had a lot of the flowers left that I had fussy cut from one of the sheets so decided to use them up by creating some birthday cards for the Relay for Life Cancer Council Team's fundraising efforts at my work.


I cut the Bumblebee patterned piece of paper into 2" strips so you get 3 cards from the one piece of 6" x 6" piece of paper.  One of the pieces was adhered to a piece of Whisper White cardstock that had been embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  This embossing folder is fast becoming my go to embossing folder for creating backgrounds (just in case you had not noticed).

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set which was die cut using the Tasteful Labels Dies.

A piece of Magenta Madness 1/4" Twill Ribbon was arranged behind the sentiment label with some 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots added to finish the card front.

Country Home

Hi everyone, hope you all had a great weekend.  I spent sometime stamping with some close friends.   We had a great time catching up.  Two of us were making cards and the others were making a memory book of their Mum.


My card today uses the Country Home stamp set which I coloured with Stampin' Blends.


Image may contain: plant and flower

I did not think ahead when I decided to cut around the urn as I cut on the line, so when it came to cut the floral arrangement I had a bit of trouble cutting around the leaves.  I nearly chopped them off several times so decided to leave some of the white around the leaves.


I love the finish of the background paper which is from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  It looks like the bricks have been individually adhered to the background, however it is the image in the paper.  

Thank you for visiting.

I used Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sea Foam, Mossy Meadow and Perfect Peacock to stamp the leaf images and the small filler dots on a Whisper White Notecard.  I also stamped the back flap of the envelope to match.

Flowers for Every Season Cards

Hi everyone, sharing 4 cards that I made from the two pieces of the Flowers for Every Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper.

I fussy cut all the flowers from one sheet and use the striped piece to create my cards.

I cut the Designer Series Paper into strips shown in the diagram below.



Card 1

This card uses the two 2cm x 14.9cm pieces.  I adhered these two strips on either side of the card front and adhere a piece of Whisper White cardstock 7.5cm x 14.9cm that was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

The fussy cut flowers are arranged behind the sentiment label which is from the Tasteful Touches stamp set. This was die cut using the Tasteful Labels Dies.  A piece of Magenta Madness Ribbon was also added behind the label.

To finish the card some of the 2020-2022 In-color Enamel Dots were scattered around.



Card 2

This card uses the 3.3cm x 14.9cm strip of Designer Series Paper which was adhered to the bottom of the card front.

A piece of Whisper White cardstock 7.5cm x 14.9cm embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder was adhered to the card front using Dimensionals.

The fussy cut flowers are arranged behind and on the sentiment label which is from the Tasteful Touches stamp set. This was die cut using the Tasteful Labels Dies.  A piece of Magenta Madness Ribbon was also added behind the label.

To finish the card some of the 2020-2022 In-color Enamel Dots were scattered around.


Card 3


This card uses one of the 4cm x 14.9cm strips of Designer Series Paper.

The fussy cut flowers are arranged behind the sentiment which is from the Tasteful Touches stamp set. This was die cut using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  A piece of Magenta Madness Ribbon was also added behind the label before a small Stitched Nested Labels Die was added.  This was cut in half to create the elongated length.

To finish the card some of the 2020-2022 In-color Enamel Dots were scattered around.


Card 4


This card uses the other the 4cm x 14.9cm strips of Designer Series Paper.

The fussy cut flower was arranged on the sentiment label which is from the Tasteful Touches stamp set. This was die cut using the  2nd largest square from the Stitched Shaped Dies.  A piece of Magenta Madness Ribbon was also added behind the label.

To finish the card some of the 2020-2022 In-color Enamel Dots were scattered around.



The left over flowers were adhered to the inside of the cards to create a beautiful finish for the inside of the card that matches the card front.

Stampin' Up! make creating so easy with all the coordinating products, the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper Pack goes perfectly with the 2020-2022 In-color products.  

Hope you enjoyed these projects.
