Stampin Up Butterfly Bundle

 Just love our new Butterfly Bundle and all the possibilities it brings.  Making the card tactile by adding embossing powders and pieces of Ribbon dimensional flowers.  The small butterfly from the Die set which matches the Stamp set Butterfly Basics all goes to add a little bit of you to your creation.  This set makes it so easy to design with so many possibilities.
All you need is a little imagination and time to play.
This card I used Gold embossing Powder Versa Mark Pad, Stazon Black;
 Ribbon: Tangerine Tango, Misty Lagoon;
Card Stock: Natural, Tangerine Tango: Black Card Stock;
Miscellaneous Supplies: Double sided Tape; Embossing Powder Marker Pens to use as water colour with Aqua Painters very Handy little Brushes.
Designer Series Paper: Sale-a-bration

Simple side opening Card

This one also side opening.

Modified Tri Shutter Card  with out all the intricate cuts etc.

Joy Fold Card with Stampin Up Blossom Petals DSP

 Have been busy making these pretty little Joy Fold Cards.  So simple yet very easy to make,

This is the card with the under flap open and the top flap opens back for you to write on.

Here is another of the Joy cards I made a couple of days ago.  I love this special colour.  Blackberry Bliss.  With Light Plum.
For the top Card I used the new Painted Bloom  Designer Series Paper 137784  and Butterfly Basic Stamp set   with the Butterfly Thinlit cutters.
If any of these items you would like to make this card with you can get them from my on line shop here on this page.
Happy Crafting

These lovely screen cards have been all the go for the last few months  It is amazing though looking back in many books and being in the craft industry for so long I have seen many of these ideas come and go over the past 30-40 years.  Nothing ever seems really new.  The amazing thing is that each time they are reinvented they become even more beautiful. The card above has been made from our Sale-a-bration stamp set Lotus Blossom.  I thought the screen card would fit this beautiful three step stamp set beautifully.

This screen card was made from a set called Asian Artistry which was a lovely Hostess set back about 5 years ago.

Used Base Card Stock
Layering Panel 
Stamping Panel
Punches : Lovely Label and Many Stars Border Punch.
Like any more details.  Please contact me.
Crafting for the week

Butterflies and Sale-a-bration

Butterflies a sign of freedom and beauty.  I have used one of our lovely Sale-a-brations free papers and used Bermuda Bay Ink pad and dauber to give the background splogs of colour.  Under our Crisp Cantalope sale-a-bration ribbon I have used our new Ribbon Trim which is Sahara Sands Lace Trim just to add a little elegance to the card.  Best of all our beautiful new Butterflies Thinlit die adds a touch of beauty to the card.

Stampin Up Builder Bow Punch Sneak Peek

Oh my these are just the cutest little possums all the amazing things you can do with it..
This amazing Parcel Pom Pom for decorating boxes and Parcels and all things needing just a little finishing off..  I used the paper All a Bloom little DSP Book.  I even used the end pieces I have cut the bow out with to trim around the bottom edge of the Box.
I think it is quite a cutie to add a little Bling around the boxes or packets too.
Have a great week.  Will be working on my next sneak peek.  So keep an eye out.
Happy Paper Crafting

Stampin Bow Builder Punch Sneak Peak

Hi my dear friends wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and a very special new Year.
This is a little sneak Peak at our new Bow Punch in our new Occasions Catalogue.
Just having a little play today and this is the card I came up with using our beautiful Bow Builder Punch and Watercolour Winter Simply Created Card Kit.
These beautiful little bows simply blew my mind when I had made them and put them on a card.  They are just beautiful.
Using the same Kit but the Stamp Set Wonderous Wreath and the Bow Builder Punch this is what I came up with again.  They are so easy to create and so cute on a card.
Looking forward to sharing a few more of our surprises in the next few days.
Happy Holidays
and Happy Crafting Carolyn

Stampin Up Many Merry Stars

Twinkle twinkle many merry stars
 shining in the sky,
Just waiting for Christmas to be nigh.

Twinkle twinkle cards and stars to make,
Make them fast and make them last.
Christmas time seems to come and go
with many merry wishes,

but in Australia there's no snow.

Let us celebrate
Day and  Night
Sun or Snow
Christmas always should be bright.

So with one accord let us celebrate our
Christ Child Born

Happy Christmas to all my dear
