Carryover products

I was very excited to see that the Punch Butterfly is still available though the mini catalogue is over so I went and had fun making some mini cards using punches and the Big Shot.

Autumn Mini

’tis a new season and we celebrate with the new Autumn/Winter Mini. New stamps sets, new colours and new papercraft tools! (ok fun toys to play with)

Now where do I start. I will start .. how about with the Big Shot die-cutting machine? It cuts not just card and paper but fabric and chipboard and plastic and more! It embosses too!

Here are some cards I created using the Textured Impressions Embossing Folders – the Perfect Polka Dots.

These two cards use the great new colour of Rich Razzleberry. My scanner/camera didn’t do the best job of how truly beautiful it is. You should see it.

I embosssed the cards using the embossing folder and using glue dots attached the Rich Razzleberry Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon. Then using the great new punch of the Extra-Large Two Step Bird I cut out two – one in whisper white, the other in Rich Razzleberry. Exchanging wings I attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals. No stamping was involved in this card 😉 I did case this from someone at the meeting the other night but I am not sure who (sorry! Perhaps you can tell me Vanessa?)

Here is the card in a slight different interpretation…

Stayed tuned for my next sneak peak with fox and friends! Only 6 days to go til the catalogue launches.

Christmas Cards

Christmas time is coming and I decided to do a Stamp-a-stack at home by myself case-ing two designs. One from Vanessa and one from Kelly.

From Go to Whoa (aka How to mount your stamps)

Mounting stamps with the new die cut stamps is really easy.

Everything comes in the stamp storage box. Pull out your die cut stamps and begin separating them. I find it best before I mount them to separate them all and check which stamp goes on which block to ensure I get the right sizes.

Once you have matched the stamps to their correct blocks, take off the baking paper and attach to the block in the position you want. You don’t have to put them in the middle, but you could put them to one side to help you when lining up stamping later.

You can trim the stamps closer if you like. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t.

Now times to put the labels on.

I try and match the label with the position of the stamp on the other side.

Now last but not least don’t forget to label the box

And now the card…. I {heart} heart is from the summer mini and it has a punch that coordinates with it.

I made this card for my husband’s birthday and then since I had the card stock already cut up I experimented with another one. I CASED ideas from the mini catalogue and also the ribbon weaving from Expressions – the stampin’ up magazine.

More from the new catalogue

Here is another use of the sweet cups. A bit harder to scan in. I made a little pouch and put jelly babies in the pouch but used blue jelly bellys in the sweet cups for she had a little boy.

My other favourite new item from the summer catalogue is a butterfly punch which coordinates nicely with the stamp set butterfly prints.


This was a very easy card to make and I enjoyed using my vintage brads so the butterfly floats on the card and the crop-a-dile makes it so easy to punch the holes in the butterfly and the card.

Stamp Set: Fifth Avenue Floral; Butterfly Prints
Ink: Riding Hood Red
Card Stock: Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: Butterfly Punch; Vintage Brads, Crop-a-dile

New Summer Mini Catalogue

The spring catalogue is coming to an end but fear not the new summer mini is about to start. Orders finish the end of November for the spring but here is a sneak preview of what you can look forward to in the summer catalogue.

I had fun making these two cards with the new sweet treat cups. I tried jelly beans first but they are a little big. Next time I will try jelly bellys which I almost bought but decided not to but I think they will fit better.

So then my husband went out and bought mini m&ms for me and they work much better but not sure how they will go in the post.
