One of my recent Stamp a Stack classes featured the “Above the Clouds” stamp set. I do love how these cards turned out. I wouldn’t normally use these colours together but with some encouragement from a couple of friends I went with the colours and they really work well together.
The original design was one I copied from my amazing talented upline, Marelle but I changed up the stamp set and colours and they are a whole new set of cards.
I chose different embossing folders to use in the background on the Bermuda Bay. When stamping the Hot Air Balloon I used full strength Bermuda Bay and then for the solid image in the balloon I stamped off in Bermuda Bay.
The small hot air balloons in the background are stamped off as well. What do you think? Would you like to make these cards? I have a few card kits available. If you order the Above the Clouds Bundle and three coloured Stamp Pads, I will give you a card kit to make the 5 cards.

This month we were challenged with card layout. I chose to use the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley. A gorgeous suite of products that include stamps, dies, 6×6 papers, adhesive image sheets, stars & tinsel.
I used the stamps & the designer series paper stack for this project. I also used the Mossy Meadow linen thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack which I feel just goes beautifully with rest of the card.
I love the gold foil on the red mistletoe background paper and then on the flip side are the trees. I loved this combination together as they are very traditional Christmas colours. I like the simplicity of the card with just the tree and then with the candy canes as the decorations on the tree. I felt that the tree was still a little naked so I used the other tree image as the branches stamped off. I just kept stamping till it filled in the spaces of the tree.
I added the Mossy Meadow linen thread to break up the sentiment and the tree, Then I added a christmas present on the scallop circle in real red so it is quite a subtle tone on tone image.
I made another card but rotated the design on the next card as I cut the patterned paper incorrectly but it enabled me to create another card. I used the scallop circle with the image in real red ink.
Last month I was asked to be the entertainment for an 11 year olds birthday party. She chose to make a unicorn canvas that I had on my facebook page. The original idea was from another demonstrator in the UK I believe. I love the canvas though and can’t bare to part with my original one.
There were 8 girls and 2 boys. The boys didn’t want to do unicorns so I had to come up with something for them to make that was quick and in a sport theme. I don’t have boys so it was a little harder for me to come up with something but was able to borrow some soccer dies from a friend. I then looked at a local popular soccer team and copied their uniforms.
There was so much talent from the girls and all of the girls added their own style to their canvas. I just love how all of them are so different. If you look closely you can see in the background that they have added texture paste with different stencils.
If you’re interested in having me for your child’s next birthday party, get in contact and we can make it happen. I am happy to travel outside of Sydney but there will be an additional charge to cover travel expenses.
