Last weekend was my launch party for the new catalogue and as well as demonstrations & displays, everyone also had the opportunity to create 2 make n takes – this is the second card that everyone created. It features the new Wood Words Stamp Set and the FANTASTIC Wood Textures DSP! I have already gone through almost a whole pack of this paper – it’s just so versatile!
This card was inspired by my good friend Paula Dobson, and is actually pretty simple to create, but the addition of all those different textures really gives it impact. This is another one of those designs that could be used over and over just by changing the colours and stamps!
Stamps: Wood Words
Cardstock: Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Very Vanilla, Wood Textures DSP
Ink: Pool Party, Early Espresso
Other: Burlap Ribbon, Basic Black Solid Bakers Twine, Pretty Label Punch, Pearls
Today’s card is one of the Make n Takes we created at Onstage in early April and features the Birthday Memories Suite. I just love the cute, slightly vintage images in this suite! Did you know that the framelits coordinate with the stamp set images, but ALSO with the images in to Designer Series Paper – how clever is that!
On this card we have used the stamps in the background and for the sentiment, but the main image is cut from the DSP – I love how it looks like it is just jumping off the card! I have actually created a ‘stepped-up’ version of this card which I will share at a later date – it really has extra WOW factor!

It’s a long weekend here in NZ to mark the Queen’s birthday – always nice to have an extra day to sleep in, and the added bonus of no sports or activities for the girls either! At Onstage earlier in the year every attendee was lucky enough to receive the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set, and I’ll be honest, when I first saw it I thought ‘what will I ever use this for..?’ But then I got it home and started playing with it and fell in love with this big bird! Here is just one of the cards I have created with it so far – there are several more to come!
The flamingo was stamped with Powder Pink & then Flirty Flamingo (of course!) before adding the detailed image over the top with good old Basic Black! The greenery was stamped on vellum using Old Olive and then just left for a few hours to dry properly. This is a really simple card but the colour combo and striking images make it look really wow!
Stamps: Fabulous Flamingo
Cardstock: Pool Party, Powder Pink, Whisper White, Gold Foil Paper, Vellum
Ink: Powder Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Basic Black
Other: 2″ Circle Punch, Gold Metallic Thread
