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. Just click on any of the images below to be taken to my shop and place your order. Don’t forget to use my hostess code at the top of this page.
This Saturday I am hosting a Christmas Card Buffet from 10am – 5pm. There will be 10 different Christmas Card designs to choose from. The cost is $5 entry and then $2.50 per card. You can come and stay all day or pop in for a short time and make some cards and then go.
If you want to pop in, let me know you’re coming by clicking on this link I would love to see you and have fun being creative.
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.
This Sunday my youngest daughter’s school is holding their Biennial fair and I will be having a stall there. I am really looking forward to being in the community and raising some funds for our primary school. It is always a fabulous day with lots of community spirit with all the families pitching in and helping on their children’s class stalls.
My daughters class stall is the Hair Spray, nails & tattoo stall. As I will have my own stall to run I have enlisted my eldest daughters help and a friend of hers to help in my stead. Both girls are looking forward to helping out and I’m very encouraged by their willingness to help.
Below is how I set up my stall 2 years ago which I felt worked well. I am changing it up again so I can see how it goes with a different layout and display.
I will have some class flyers to hand out to anyone that is interested and have some of the projects on display for people to see. I will also have some catalogues and a simple make and take.
School has just resumed this week for term 4 and the last term of Primary school for my oldest daughter.
During the holidays though I held a couple of classes for children. The kids love my classes and I love seeing the kids being creative. In my first class the kids made 3 cards and decorated a box.
The box originally held stock for my husbands install work but I was able to cover it and be able to add it to my class. I covered it in Designer Paper and then I sealed it with some Mod Podge. The kids were then able to cut out their letters and stick them on using dimensionals. The offset the letters slightly to give a shadow effect. My youngest daughter helped each of the girls with their letters. It was great to have the extra helping hand.
I was so very happy with the result.
The cards were fairly simple and we used the Wishing You Well Stamp set from the holiday catalogue. I used Gold thread to add some extra interest to each of the cards. These card are from the catalogue so I just copied the design and had a class ready to go. The catalogues are a great source of inspiration.
I hold classes most school holidays so if you think your child would be interested and you live in Sydney Australia then contact me or like my Facebook page and I can let you know when my next classes will be on.

During November I will be holding 3 Santa’s Workshop Card Classes using the Santa’s Workshop Suite from the Holiday Catalogue.
In the class you can make 16-20 cards using the Santa’s Workshop Memories&More Card Pack & Cards & Envelopes Pack. The Memories & More Card Packs make it so easy to make lots of cards in one sitting. The Cards & Envelopes Pack make it even easier with pre-scored cards and matching envelopes.
This is a great way to get a lot of Christmas Cards made quickly and ready for you to send out.
These cards were originally designed by Trish Todd in the US. I used her card design layouts to make my cards. The Memories & More card pack make these cards very simple and with limited stamping needed.
