New catalogue - Wildflower Meadow

Woot woot, the new catalogue is online and ready to order from.

Have a look here Annual catalogue 2013/14

Remember, the new 'Best of ' set is also available now - Best of Butterflies - click here

Another promotion went live today Grab-your-greetings - 25% off 3 great greetings for the month of July.

I made a couple of cards with one of the new stamp sets and a new embossing folder

The stamp and the folder are both called Wildflower Meadow - the first card is on Whisper White and Old Olive. I coloured the stamp with Melon Mambo and Old Olive markers, embossed the cardstock and added a few Basic Rhinestones.



I second card uses Whisper White and Smoky Slate cardstock and Smoky Slate ink. First stamped and then embossed the card stock and ofcourse added a bit of bling.


What a difference different colours make.

Happy Stamping

Speaking of butterflies, I have made this frame for our new niece who is due to say hello sometime in September. I found the frame at a dollar store with a button picture in it. I covered the picture with a piece of Whisper White card stock and then just added a heap of butterflies. The butterflies are stamped with Papillon Potpourri in versamark ink on Strawberry Slush cardstock and in Strawberry Slush ink on Whisper White cardstock. I then punched them all out with the Elegant Butterfly and the Bitty Butterfly punches. All got stuck on with Tombo glue. And then some Basic Rhinestones were added.

Emboss resist

Finally had time to be a bit creative today and made four cards, all same design but with different sentiments on - always a good idea to make more than one of a card where you have it all out anyway.

This card features the emboss resist technique. I stamped the flourish from Everything Eleanor on Whisper White cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed the flourishes with clear embossing powder. I then sponged Pool Party classic ink all over the Whisper White piece of card. The cardstock picks up the colour but the embossed images resists the ink and stays white. On the featured card i used a greeting and image from Elements of Style, which will retire on June 30.


The other three cards I made have sentiments from Perfectly Penned and Memorable Moments.

Don't forget that this is the last month of the 2012/13 catalogue and the seasonal catalogue. There is a long retirement list and things are selling out fast so get in quick. To avoid disappointment I would suggest that you Shop On Line at my Stampin' Up! website www.stampingmette.stampinup.net

January 2012

For those who knows me in a stamping sense they know very well that scrapbooking is not something I do. My patience is not quite good enough for more than cards and something that can be done in a few hours. But I found some frames btw Christmas and New Years and thought that maybe it was time to try something new and broaden my horizon.

My brother has just been visiting for a couple of weeks from Denmark and we had a few photos taken in different places around Cairns. I thought my parents would like a couple of photos of us together, where we are not fighting so thought this would be a great test to my scrapbooking abilities.


I am fairly sure that a couple of scrappers I know would say this is cheating, but hey you have to start somewhere, and I am actually quite happy with the result.
