The Friendly Gnomes stamp set coordinate with the Gnomes Dies from the Holiday Mini Catalogue and you can still purchase the dies if you haven’t already. The dies were originally bundled with the Kindest Gnomes stamp set and you can see what I created with these last year at this post.
This bundle is so super cute and I love all the cards that we made. The original designs of 5 of the cards are by Ronda Wade, however I did change up the sizing for some of the cards to utilise our A4 card stock size. The last card is my design and I’m really happy with how it turned out.
I chose to create a fancy fold with a card inside a card. It is something a bit different which is why I like it so much. What do you think? The Country Gingham Designer Series Paper 6×6″ paper stack works really well with this stamp set.
This is my long video from my Facebook Live on the Friendly Gnomes.
Today I decided to create some more Christmas cards with the Forever Fern and the Christmas to Remember stamp sets. I wanted to show you how you can create lots of cards in a short amount of time. With Christmas only 44 days, we need to get our cards made and sent out.
So I return to the 4 Square technique creating 4 cards quickly and simply. I also created a set of 5 cards.
Today on my Facebook Live I was creating with the Sunny Splash stamp set by Stampin’ Up! This stamp set was not on my wishlist at all till about 2 weeks ago. I saw a number of projects that people had made and thought, yes it is a cute set, maybe I should add it to my order, so I did.
I received the stamp set just yesterday and I an say I love it. It is so cute and adds a bit of whimsy and who doesn’t love whimsy? The weather outside today is overcast and not so pleasant so what better set to use than one that is for summer?
I am loving this Sunny Splash Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up!
I did some quick searching for what others had created using this stamp set and I found a few that I was just drawn to. A couple of these cards were original designs by Songofmyheartstampers.com. Another of the cards was created by Nancy Stamps and the final card I took inspiration from Notes from Patience.
This week has been a very busy one. We have been at the Christian Venues Association National Conference at CYC Phillip Island Adventure Resort. It has been a phenomenal week of sharing, being well fed, catching up with friends near and far and meeting new friends in the Christian Camping industry, which my husband and I have a heart for.
I had the opportunity to run two workshops which gave some attendees a chance to craft with me. In one of my classes I had kids and adults. So I needed to create a class for both which can be difficult. I decided to go for some colouring for the kids and some stamping for the adults.
My husband and I support this ministry in various ways as Ministry of Tech. We like to have some fun at the National Conference. And we like to find fun ways to get everyone to interact and this year was no exception. We organised a giant game of scrabble for all the delegates. Many people didn’t play, but those that did were very competitive. At the end of the allotted time there were 100 plays and over 100 words.
Our eldest flew down by herself on the Monday after we arrived. So we just had our youngest with us and we had a bit of fun when we were setting up the AV gear.

The Floating & Fluttering Bundle is such a gorgeous set of products that you would love to play with it. I started by stamping the butterflies in the corresponding colour on a piece of Basic White Card. Then I stamped the butterflies in Tuxedo Black ink on a scrap piece of Basic White. After stamping the butterflies in tuxedo black on some scrap paper and then using the blending brushes I coloured in butterflies with each colour. Using the Stampin Cut and Emboss machine and the Fluttering Dies to cut out the butterflies. I then hand cut the butterflies from each other so I could pop them up on dimensionals like their popping off the page. Using the Tailored Tag Punch I layered the sentiment onto black. I had to cut the white card down slightly so that I would have a slim border of black around the outside of it.
Using the current in colours that will be retiring in June I wanted to share how lovely they are. I love the simplicity of colours on the card, only White, Black and the In color.
