Just checking in

I've been a bit busy preparing for my Launch and Garden party today, so have no pictures, but plenty of projects so  I haven't  forgotten just haven't had time to photograph them.

As I type this, it's dark outside, so I can't take a photo of  my display.  Hubby has been busy setting up the pop-up gazebo ready for me to set out my display when it gets light.

Best I get to bed now before dawn breaks!

Fun Friday Technique

This Friday's fun project is a technique I taught to my club ladies this month using none other than the humble clear blocks you mount your stamps on.  

You can use any size or shape - I used Stampin' Up!'s clear blocks A, B, C, D, E and G in this video. Intrigued?  Just watch!




Here are the supplies I used:


Whisper White A4 Card Stock
2016-2018 In Color Stampin' Write Markers
Clear Block A
Clear Block B
Clear Block C
Clear Block D
Clear Block E
Clear Block G

What's your verdict?  Ideal for stamping with the kiddie winks this summer hols!  Would you let them loose on your precious ink pads?  lol!  Depends what age group they are, of course!

Back with more next week!

Happy stamping!

Baby Bear or is it Daddy Bear?

Happy Father's Day to all Dad's out there and especially to the ones who live in our hearts but who are no longer with us..

My card today doesn't reflect the traditional Father's Day card, both my hubby and I lost our Dad's within a year of each other.  We all like hugs and cuddles and who better to give us those than a teddy bear - and my hubby is my life size one in human form!

Thinking outside the box is good for the soul, don't you think?  Away from the brown bear, I've stamped this one in Dapper Denim, one of our new In Colours and I didn't use hundreds of ink pads, just the one for the bear.  New to stamping? How did I do that?


It's a 3 step stamping set, and it looks better in real life.  The first stamp was stamped off twice before I stamped it on my card stock. The second time I stamped with the next image, I stamped off once before stamping on top of the first stamped image and with the third stamp, I stamped directly from ink pad to complete the bear image.  To make it more masculine, I used the Peekaboo Peach ruched ribbon to tie a tie.  I had to partially cut the neckline and glued the body directly onto the cardstock, but popped the head up with dimensionals.


In the photo above, you  can see that there are 3 photopolymer bear images all with the same outline, but the detail on each one is slightly different to give you that 3 dimensional look.  There is also a bow stamp - but this is a 2-step stamping one, so 2 stamps to complete one image  using the one ink pad and the stamp off method to add depth; or you can have 3 shades of your colour choice  using 3 ink pads for 3-step stamping, and 2 shades  using 2 ink pads for 2 step stamping.

Here are the supplies I used for the Father's Day Card.  I mixed and matched the sentiment from different stamp sets to create "Happy Father's Day"!
