Social Stamping - Change



Hello and welcome to the weekly Social Stamping Blog Hop with so many talented crafters around the world joining in.

My friend Kelly Kent is the mastermind behind this and she put the group together to share our creations in a time where we were all social distancing and many were in isolation. It was very unnerving time for a lot of people as some have medical issues and loved ones who are compromised and can not afford to get ill. Creating is my sanity at the moment as I am a pretty social person and these past few months were a little bit of a struggle.

This week we are nearly back to normal... We have just been informed that swimming lessons will be starting back up from next week. All our sporting commitments are back on track straight after the school holidays!! We are pretty lucky to be in WA as we are going really well with our numbers... fingers crossed that it stays that way!
Oh and Pubs & Clubs are back open, I enjoyed a really nice lunch with a friend last week!!

You have come from Kelly’s  page this week

So here is the next (and last weekly) theme that Kelly has set for us and it is "Change"
This is another one to think about as it can have so many different meanings....
I went along the change in colour and change in how old someone could be...
So rainbow "changing" glimmer paper and Happy Birthday combined it is!!



This particular card you pull down on the "tab" on the side to change the colours in the butterfly...



Another change in the colours.... It is such a pretty card (not a lot of products used) and a little time consuming too but well worth it!


  • Stamps: Itty Bitty Birthdays
  • Ink: Stayzon
  • Card: Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Rainbow Glimmer
  • Tools: Butterfly Beauty Dies with a Die Cutting/Embossing Machine
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals

The Dimensionals - Peony Garden, One Suite Four Ways


Welcome to my blog and to The Dimensionals tutorials

We’re a group of Stamping Friends who offer 3D Paper Craft Tutorials on the 1st day of every month
I am so super excited to be a part of a group of such talented ladies and I pinch myself on how I got here.......

The theme for this month is the gorgeous new Peony Garden Suite - One Suite Four Ways. 
A great way of getting more out of your suites.

Unlike many tutorial bundles on offer, you’ll see exactly what you’ll be getting in this bundle as we take you on a mini blog hop with each designer.

This month I again have made another card to be really proud of. 
This one I have called my Peony Easel Flip Card. 
It is another one of my own designs that I painstakingly and lovingly have made from scratch and a lot of wasted cardstock!

A little close up of my card.
The sentiment panel is on the very back of the finished card.

Social Stamping - Out of the Box



Hello and welcome to the weekly Social Stamping Blog Hop with so many talented crafters around the world joining in.

My friend Kelly Kent is the mastermind behind this and she put the group together to share our creations in a time where we are all social distancing and many are in isolation. It is a very unnerving time for a lot of people as some have medical issues and loved ones who are compromised and can not afford to get ill. Creating is my sanity at the moment as I am a pretty social person and these past few months have been a little bit of a struggle.

This week my daughter went back to netball & basketball training and my son to basketball training. It has been interesting as parents aren't allowed to stay to watch but after this weekend we are in a better phase of restrictions which means there will be no limit on how many people can go and watch (just keep social distancing). 
I had my second card class back this week which has been so nice seeing my girls.

You have come from Narelle's page this week

So here is the next theme that Kelly has set for us and it is "Out of the Box"
Hmmm I had to think about this one... it has a broad range of things you could do... I went back to Social Stamping Share Sunshine and remembered my friend Bronwyn did a flowerpot box card for it with the large sunflower.... I thought hmmm I could do that card with the small sunflower so I did...



A mini Sunflower box.


or a mini Gerbera style box.

This was made with Bronwyn Eastleys tutorial called a Flowerpot Box Card and if you wish to make one for yourself here is the link to her page. It came in a bundle of 4 and the 3 other cards are just as amazing too!


  • Stamps: Celebrate Sunflowers and Sentiment from Butterfly Wishes
  • Ink: Memento
  • Card: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Magenta Madness & Daffodil Delight
  • Tools: Sunflowers, All Dressed Up & Stitched Nested Labels Dies as well as Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder with a Die Cutting/Embossing Machine and Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Bronze and Magenta Madness Stampin' Blends
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals, Magenta Madness and Bumblebee Ribbons

Colour INKspiration 80 #CI80


Welcome to Colour Inkspiration!

What is Colour INKspiraton? – a Facebook based bi-monthly colour challenge.
Anyone with Facebook can join in.  You don’t need a blog and you don’t need to be a demonstrator.
I have joined in these challenges and love them as Colour challenges for me are actually a real challenge.
 Click here to join the Facebook page which now has over 2100 members and see what it’s all about.

Here’s some of the basic details about the challenge –
The Colour INKspiration Crew! consists of a team of talented Aussie and NZ Stampin’ Up! ® Demonstrators that create projects based on Pinterest inspired colour swatches.
Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 7 pm (AEDT), a new colour swatch will be uploaded to the Facebook Colour INKspiration Group and the Colour INKspiration Crew will get the ball rolling by providing inspiration for each challenge with a post on their blogs.
Then you have a 12 day period to upload your own creations using the colours provided.
If you have a blog, feel free to link back to it, but all entries will be via Facebook.  The design team will select 5 projects to be ‘design team picks’ and then the Facebook group will select an overall winner from this shortlist.




These colours this fortnight are really lovely together.

I have been having another little play with the Many Layered Blossoms Dies and Stamps again.



The Blossoms in Bloom was stamped in both corners of the White cardstock and then the dies placed over the top. The sentiment was stamped with versamark and then White Embossed and coloured in with Rococo Rose Stampin' Blends but it doesn't seem to show that well in the photo.


  • Stamps: Blossoms in Bloom
  • Ink: Rococo Rose and Versamark
  • Card: Whisper White, Purple Posy, Crumb Cake, Soft Seafoam, Basic Black and Gold Foil
  • Tools: Many Layered Blossoms Dies with a die cutting/ embossing machine, Rococo Rose Stampin' Blends and White Embossing powder with a heat tool. 
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals and Gold Gilded Gems
