Sharing my latest Page Layout which I created for the Brisbane Scrapbooking Club's February Challenge.  Again, we had to create a layout using this sketch as a guide.  I had fun using lots of different really girly items for this page.  As I had quite a few photos I also created a double page layout.

Today's card also uses one of my new favourite tools - the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.

Again, I had the small piece of DSP from the new paper stack and a Scalloped Tag left over from my recent Stamp Club projects, so thought I would create another card similar to the Stamp Club projects.

To see previous projects please click here February Stamp Club Projects.

This time I chose to compliment with Bermuda Bay rather than the previous Strawberry Slush and embossed with a different embossing folder (now retired but one I still love).

I have stamped the flower directly onto the tag with Coastal Cabana Ink and then gently water coloured in the image.  I also stamped Happy Mother's Day at the very bottom of the tag in Strawberry Slush and then further embellished the tag with some of the new Gold Baker's Twine and Strawberry Slush Ruffle Stretch Trim and then finished off the card with a row of 3 pearls.

Supplies used:

Cardstock - Whisper White, Bermuda Bay
Stamp Sets - Peaceful Petals, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Punches - Scalloped Tag Topper
Embossing Folder (retired)
Strawberry Slush Ruffle Stretch Trim, Gold Baker's Twine, Pearls

Vintage Tag

I just loved creating this vintage themed tag for February's Tag Swap.

I created my background by stamping the En Francais Background Stamp and using a mask and sponging.

Also used a few retired items like the beautiful flower ribbon and the retired Elements of Style stamp set which is still one of my most favourite stamp sets.

This tag gave me an opportunity to use some of the lovely goodies I have been hoarding in my stash waiting for just the right project.

Card number 2 showcasing the Peaceful Petals Stamp Set.

I already had the Melon Mambo Scallop Circle left over from another project, so decided I would use this piece as my base.

I stamped the large flower and the green leafy stems from the stamp set in Black Stazon Ink onto White Cardstock and water coloured them with Pear Pizzazz and Pink Pirouette.

I also stamped three flowers from the Petite Petals stamp set in Melon Mambo and punched out with matching punch.

The Film Frame has been die cut using the new On Film Framelits Dies and the sentiment is also from the Peaceful Petals stamp set and has been stamped in Melon Mambo.

Supplies used:

Cardstock - Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Ink Pads - Black Staz On, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Pink Pirouette
Stamp Sets - Peaceful Petals, Petite Petals
Dies - On Film Framelits, Scallop Circle Bigz
Punches - Large Oval, Petite Petals

My first card using the Peaceful Petals Stamp Set and some of the beautiful Sale-a-Bration FREE Sweet Sorbet DSP.

I chose my colours from the DSP and went with Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Basic Black.

I stamped the flower twice on some scrap white card stock (once in Pistachio Pudding and once in Crisp Cantaloupe) and fussy cut each one - including the stem.  I tied a piece of Calypso Coral Baker's twine around the stem.

I also stamped three banners from the FREE Sale-a-Bration Banner Blast Stamp Set in Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe and punched them out using the co-ordinating punch.

Supplies used:

Cardstock - Pistachio Pudding, Basic Black, Whisper White
DSP - FREE Sale-a-Bration "Sweet Sorbet"
Stamp Sets - Peaceful Petals and FREE Sale-a-Bration Banner Blast
Ink Pads - Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding
Punches - Decorative Label and FREE Sale-a-Bration - Banner
Calypso Coral Baker's Twine and Crisp Cantaloupe Ruffle Stretch Trim

A quick share today with a
very simple card I have created 
as Thank You cards for my Stamp 
Club Members and Customers for February.

I have created these in both Coastal 
Cabana and Crisp Cantaloupe and 
used the Hardwood stamp for the 
background and just changed a
couple of details on each one. 

The  Banner Blast Stamp Set and
matching Punch with some of the
Baker's Twine from the Sale-a-Bration
Catalogue made creating the cute little 
banner very easy.

The sentiment stamp on the
top two cards is from the
Peaceful Petals Stamp Set
and I have also used a bit 
of the gorgeous new Washi
Tape from the Occasions

For the last card I created 
the Washi Tape banner
by adhering the Washi Tape
to some card stock and 
then punching out with the Banner punch.


The  projects I am going to share with you over the next few days have all been created using the beautiful Peaceful Petals Stamp Set available in the Occasions Catalogue.  See it on page 20.

Such a beautiful set which is very easy to watercolour.

It is one of my all time favourite flower stamp sets and I look forward to creating a lot of beautiful cards in the future with it.

Wood Mount - Item No. 133104 - $49.95
Clear Mount - Item No. 133107 - $39.95

The sample on the side has been taken from the catalogue and would be very easy to recreate.  Simple but stunning don't you think.

I can see the large flower being stamped, fussy cut and layered.

I have shared with you a couple of cards created with the set and now it is time for some more.

Of course, if you love this stamp set you could earn it yourself during Sale-a-Bration.

I love the very simple Black and White theme.

A very different card to yesterday's creation.

This time I have just used the round flower and stamped around the edges of two square pieces of Very Vanilla Cardstock with Coastal Cabana ink.  My finished card measurements are 5" x 5", but you could create any size square you wished.

I have then mounted the smaller top piece onto Coastal Cabana card stock and then again onto Crumb Cake which was then all mounted onto the larger stamped piece of Very Vanilla and then mounted onto a black base card with dimensionals.

Just a little tip to save some card stock, when using a lot of layers like this card, I usually cut out the middle of the, in this case squares, which can then be used for another project etc.

On the right hand side of the top layer I have affixed some of the Natural 5/8" Chevron Ribbon and then mounted the flowers and butterflies over the top in the corner areas.

The flowers  were stamped with Petite Petals stamp set and punched out with the matching punch.  I also stamped the round flower from the Petal Parade set twice onto a piece of Very Vanilla and then punched out with the small butterfly punch.   Flowers and butterflies have been embellished with pearls.

Finally the sentiment is from a hostess set Simply Sketched stamped onto Very Vanilla with Coastal Cabana Ink and punched out with the large oval punch and mounted onto a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock punched with the Scallop Oval punch.

Cardstock - Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Coastal Cabana

Time to show off the gorgeous Petal Parade Stamp Set which you could receive FREE during Sale-a-Bration.

This time I have used the colours of Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate and Pistachio Pudding.  Not my usual colour choices but I really think they went nicely together.

Another fairly simple card where I have just randomly stamped all over the white card stock in the three colours and then added the embellishments of pearls, cork flowers and gold twine.  This white piece has then been affixed to a slightly larger Crushed Curry piece of card stock and finally layered onto the White base card.  In this particular case I did make the card a bit more of a fancy fold than just basic, but you don't have to.

Supplies used:

Cardstock - Whisper White, Crushed Curry
Stamp Sets - Petal Parade (FREE SALE-A-BRATION STAMP), Sentiment from Peaceful Petals - Item No. 133104 for wood mount - $49.95 or Item No. 133107 for clear mount - $39.95

You could earn yourself this beautiful Petal Parade Stamp Set for FREE.

I have been loving using this stamp set.   It has just been so versatile and I can see myself using it to create many more projects.

So for the next few posts I will be sharing with you just a few of the cards I have created already.

I have also already shared with you previously  the border I created on this layout using this stamp set.

What other ideas can you come up with for using this stamp set.


We had our first stamp club for 2014 where we created some projects using new products from the Occasions Catalogue and some FREE products from the Sale-a-Bration Catalogue.

Our first card used the new Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  Such a great tool for making any length tags (you are restricted to the width of 5 cm) and I think I am going to be using this punch a lot.   To add some extra interest we also punched along the bottom of the tag with the Scallop Edge Border Punch.

We have also used some DSP from the Paper Stack.  I really like using the paper stacks because they are just the perfect size for cards and you don't have to cut into a full sheet of 12" x 12" DSP.

FREE from the Sale-a-Bration Catalogue is the blue twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack and also a stamp from the Petal Parade Stamp Set.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Whisper White, Strawberry Slush, Fresh Prints DSP Paper Stack, Stamp Sets - Flower Shop, Peaceful Petals, Petal Parade, Punches - Scalloped Tag Topper Punch & Scallop Edge Border Punch, Embossing Folder - Swiss Dots, Ink Pads - Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Embellishments - Blue Twine from Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack, Pearls

Our second card used the new Hardwood Background Stamp which I think looks so awesome.

We have also used the Petite Petals Stamp Set and matching punch as well as the new die cut from the On Film Framelits Dies.

The owl punch is still one of my favourites and he looks very cute dressed up in his stamped and punched vest.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Basic Black, Pistachio Pudding, Ink Pads - Pistachio Pudding, Soft Suede, Stamp Sets - Hardwood Background Stamp, Petite Petals, Petal Parade, Sentiment from Simply Sketched Hostess Set, Punches - Owl Builder, Bird Builder, Petite Petals, Large Oval, Scallop Oval, Framelits Die - On Film, Diamontes
