Birthday Wishes

I’m back today to share 2 more cards I made last year and again never took time out to photograph and share, but this time they are Birthday cards.

This first one is using one of my favourite sets from the current Annual Catalogue and it’s called Beautiful Bouquet. I love that Stampin’ Up are making more framelits to co-ordinate with their stamp sets as even though I don’t mind fussy cutting I would rather not be doing that with these images especially when you mass produce them.


I love this gorgeous bright colour combination. I’ve used Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry. All colours that will be staying.

My second card is using another Floral stamp set called ‘Bunch of Blossoms’ which has a matching punch.


This colour combination is Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive but looks good in many colour combinations.

Inspiration for these cards were found on Pinterest so I’m not taking credit as my original designs although I have made minor alterations to the original designs I saw.

You can purchase the items to make these cards in my online store.

Thanks for stopping by.

Christmas Wishes

I know Christmas was a few months ago now but I didn’t get around to posting any of the cards I had made so I’m hear today to do just that.

I have 2 cards to share using the lovely ‘Christmas Pines’ stamp set and one using ‘Carols of Christmas’ which unfortunately is no longer available.

This first one is using the gorgeous In Color Emerald Envy that is retiring shortly so don’t forget to place your order soon by stopping by my online store if you are hoping to get some.


The next card has more ‘sparkle’.


Here is my ‘Carols of Christmas’ card.


Thanks for stopping by.

Colour Revamp


Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on colour trends across different markets and industries and when they see changes happening, they review their colour spectrum to ensure that they remain consistently on top of the trends. It’s been 5 years with the current core colours, so it’s time for a Colour Revamp!

In order to keep bringing us the most current and on trend colours, they decided it was time to give their colour collections a makeover.

How does it work?
There are still 4 colour collections, each with 10 colours. There is also a new colour group called Basics. In order to keep our colour collections to exclusive Stampin’ Up! colours, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White have been moved out of the Neutrals collection. A few other colours have been moved into the Neutrals collection, making it more exciting and colourful! Some additional colours have changed collections as well. These changes were based on needing to maintain colour balance in our updated collections. For example, Poppy Parade is now the brightest red so it is part of the Brights collection, and Real Red has moved into the Regals collection.

In Colors
There are no changes to the In Color programme. Every two years we will continue to introduce five new In Colors that will be available for the ensuing two years. We also have previous In Colors that are returning and joining our core colours. Welcome back: Mossy Meadow, Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana, Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss!

So, the all-important question – which colours are leaving us?

Note that Flirty Flamingo is leaving as an In Color, but will be returning as a core colour in the Brights Collection.

If any of these are your favourites, stock up on cardstock, accessories and ink refills now, before they are gone!
In addition, the inkpad case style has been updated with a fresh new look. It is now easier to open, more air-tight and stackable! All inkpads ordered after June 1 will be in the new style.

It’s that time of year again….


A Brand New Annual Catalogue is just around the corner (I already have a copy and it’s wonderful!) so we have to make way for lots of great new products. That means it’s time to say goodbye to some old favourites from the current Annual Catalogue and Occasions Catalogue as always. Retiring Stamps will be guaranteed available until 7 May, but everything else is only available while stocks last.
Depending on inventory levels, discounts on select products may be introduced on or after 8 May

I easiest way to view what’s retiring is in the Online Store (and make sure you check out the Clearance Rack while you’re there!).

If you prefer, you can download and print out the PDF.

And click here for the Occasions Catalogue Retiring items PDF.

The best way to make sure you don’t miss out is to place your order in my Online Store.
All orders over $50 will be automatically added to my mailing list to receive a FREE copy of the New Catalogue (mail outs begin mid-May). If you prefer to email me your order, that’s perfectly fine too.

Don’t forget, once these products sell out, they are gone forever! Don’t miss out!

NOTE: You might have noticed a lot of inkpads and colours on the Retiring List….that is because we are having a Colour Revamp this year, plus we have a new style inkpad case. The new one is more airtight, easier to open and stackable! …more about all that shortly!
