Freshly Brewed Projects - Recessed Panel Card


Hello and welcome. It is time for another Freshly Brewed Projects. The theme this time around is a super cool recessed panel card. Here is mine.


I have made this type of card before and it is much easier than it looks. You simply cut a panel the same size as your card front and cut a wedge from it. Then the remaining pieces are put onto the card front with dimensionals so they are raised. You can get so many different looks with this card depending on the paper and stamps you use.

I decided to use the Christmastime is Here Suite that is coming November 1. I love flowers and roses so this suite appealed to me straight away. Then add in the touches of gold foil in the paper and the beautiful dies, and I knew I just had to show it off with this style of card.

You can see the complete product suite here.



Now that you have seen my project, it is time to see what the other Late girls have done.

Have a great day.

Special of the Week


International Highlights Top 10


Hello and welcome. Today I am super excited to be taking part in a special blog hop. You see earlier in the month I took part in an international blog highlights in which people get to vote on five of their favourite entries. I was super excited to be placed third. The top ten from the highlights then get to participate in a special blog hop. That's what today is. So sit back and be prepared for some amazing inspiration.

For today's project I decided to make a card using the beautiful Nature's Beauty stamp set as our theme is Encouragement, and this set is all about that.




In case you were not aware, $4.25 of every sale of this set goes toward mental health organisations. In Australia it is the Black Dog Institute that will benefit. So I thought this set was perfect for our theme.

If you are a long time follower of mine, you will know that I love making wreaths, so when I saw the small leaves stamp in this set, I knew exactly what my card was going to include.

Now you have seen my creation, it is time to see what every one else has done.








If you would like to see the products I used on this project and perhaps purchase the Nature's Beauty stamp set, simply click on the image below.

Product of the Week - Nature's Beauty


Hello and welcome. Today I am breaking from my run of Christmas projects to show you something special. The card isn't really that special, but the stamp set is - Nature's Beauty. But first here is the card.


Here is the stamp set. Don't you just love all those animals.



I created this card for a recent creative challenge in my VIP customer facebook group. We created using the following colours. They just so happened to work wonderfully with this stamp set.


So why is this stamp set so special? Well because $4.25 of every sale of this stamp set goes towards mental health organisations. 

So Be a Difference Maker. 
In the Stampin' Up! family we do our best to look out for one another any way we can. Purchase the Nature's Beauty Stamp Set to help make a difference in the lives of those you care about.

Just a few days ago I heard of a friend of a friends husband who had struggled with depression and unfortunately took his own life. Purchasing this stamp set will help people like him to get the help they need to try to prevent such tragedies.

Have a great day.

Non traditional Christmas


Hello and welcome. Today I have a card to share with you that uses non traditional Christmas colours. I don't often use these as for me Christmas is red and green. But I put up a creative challenge in one of my facebook groups to create a project with the following colour combination.



When I saw this sheet of paper in the Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper, I just knew I wanted to use it with these colours. Then I thought, why not a Christmas card.


I simply stamped a few ornaments from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set then punched them out using the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack. I added a sentiment, some Silver Metallic Thread to each bauble and a bow, then added some scattered rhinestones. I love how pretty and delicate it turned out.

Still Scenes for the Males


Hello and welcome. Today I have a very different card for you using the Still Scenes bundle. This card is more the males. 



I love the little bears in the dies and when you tee them up with the woodgrain paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper, it makes for a wonderful combination. I just added some sparkly trees using Sparkle Glimmer Paper and some Garden Green trees to add a touch of a forest feel. I created the sky by sponging Night of Navy ink over the die cut globe piece, then tapping a mix of Whisper White craft ink refill and water over the top to create the stars.  I love how versatile this bundle is.

Have a great day.

Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop


Hello and welcome. Today I am taking part in the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. Our theme this time around is Happy Holidays. I decided to make a Christmas Card using some really cool products. I will talk about them in a minute, but first, here is my card.




The first product I knew I wanted to use was the wonderful Stitched Stars Dies. I love stars at Christmas and these ones are extra special as they have the stitching around the edges. I think that just adds something special to the die cut pieces. The other product I wanted to use was the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate Sheets. I hadn't actually used them yet, just cut them up for paper shares. So I was excited to use them on a project. And of course, who doesn't love a die cut sentiment. The Tis The Season sentiment is from the Jolly Season Dies.

Now that you have seen my project, it is time to see what everyone else has done.







Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day.

An easy way to do this is to create your own bags and boxes. Today I have made a slider box, a bit like a matchbox but deeper.

Snowman Shaker Card


Hello and welcome. Today I have a fun shaker card to share with you. I am using part of my product of the week, the Still Scenes Bundle. For this card, I didn't use the stamp set but I did use the dies. If you are not familiar with the products in the bundle here they are.


I wanted to make a cute snowman shaker card, so instead of the using the Still Scenes stamp set, I used the Snowman Season stamp set and the Snowman Builder Punch. And this was the result.


Isn't this just so cute !

I can see the snow globe dies being used for all sorts of things and not just Christmas. I actually made this card live on facebook. Here is the shortened video minus all the chit chat.
