August Blog Hop


This month’s blog hop requires us to use 5 given colours and this is the card that I came up with.

The card was made using mainly the Layering Alphabet Dies and the Lined Alphabet stamp set in Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron cardstock in alternate layers.  I love using these dies and stamp set to make personalised cards.

The punched daisy was stamped in Basic Gray then punched out using the Medium Daisy Punch.  I have also stamped a lighter shade of daisy in Sahara Sand at the top corner of the card.  My sentiment in Balmy Blue is from the Rooted in Nature stamp set.

I hope you like my card.  Check out what Sharon Wilson has come up with in the next blog!

Happy Chinese New Year 2019

Today is the first day of Chinese New Year celebrating the Year of the Pig. The celebration is in full swing among my family members. Here are some cards I’ve made for my friends and family celebrating the occasion.

This Little Piggy and the Barn Door stamp sets make a perfect pair for this occasion!


Beautiful Waterfront

Last week I made this card for a lovely friend.  I used a couple of stamps from the Waterfront set to build the scene.  Then I stamped the girl from Beautiful You twice.  The first time was on the same cardstock where the waterfront scene was stamped.  The second time was stamped on a DSP.  I then cut out the dress and the hat from the DSP and stuck them onto the same image on the cardstock.  That’s an easy way to have your beautiful girl wear a dress of any print!

Dashing Deer

The Stamper Anonymous group, which I’m part of, is kick starting a Team Blog Hop, today being the first!  Once a month, the talented Nikki Stalker will send the team a sketch or a colour challenge and we design something based on this guideline.

This week is a sketch challenge, and this is the sketch we had to work with:

Since Christmas is just around the corner, I’ve decided to make a Christmas card.  The deer is cut out from the Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies while the sentiment is from the Labels of Love stamp set from the Annual Catalogue.  I’ve also punched some sprigs using the Sprig Punch as I think they make a good match with the Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) used in the background.

My colour scheme is Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and white for a traditional Christmas colour.

I hope you like my card.  Check out what Melissa Gifford has come up with in the next blog!

Wonderful Moments for an Expecting Mother

I have a colleague who is going away for maternity leave and I made her this card.  The elegant background was made with the Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies and the image and sentiment are from the Wonderful Moments stamp set. I’ve coloured in the image using the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers which makes it so easy to do blending,

This stamp set has many more images suitable for all types of wonderful moments like weddings and birthdays and it comes with sentiments suitable for such occasions!

Love You to Pieces

I love playing with jigsaw puzzles and when I saw this set Love You to Pieces in the catalogue, I just couldn’t resist. You can use any appropriate Designer Series Paper like what I did for this card. With the puzzle pieces cut up, you can even create your very own jigsaw puzzle game!
