Volunteering at RMH – June 2018

I had my monthly visit to Ronald McDonald House (RMH) again today and it was my pleasure to provide a fun distraction to a few lovely children. They all really enjoyed their first card making experience! 

Thank you for allowing me to share your photos. 

I was also surprised by receiving my new volunteers uniform and a lovely certificate.

Another day well spent sharing what I love doing and making a small difference. 😍

Big Shot Dies

For anyone familiar with the Big Shot, you know that there are different types of dies.

With the new Annual Catalogue, Stampin’ Up! decided to create a system that will help you more easily navigate how to build your sandwiches for different types of dies in the Big Shot.

Some die sets contain a mix of die types:

  1. dies that cut only,
  2. dies that emboss only; and
  3. detailed dies that require extra accessories for best results.

Die images are colour coded to indicate which type of sandwich to use.

June 2018 Class – Climbing Orchid

A big THANKYOU to all who came to my classes last week.

We made four cards using the Climbing Orchid stamp set and  Orchid Builder matching Framelits. This beautiful set has carried over from the last catalogue. I bought it a long time ago but only got the chance to play with it recently.

The first card I cased from “Short Cake Scraps”. We used the double layered stamp to create this lovely card. The card base was made using Fresh Fig card stock and card front was on Very Vanilla. The branches were stamped using the new Stamparatus positioning tool.

Products used to make this project:


The second card was inspired by a card in the new  2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! catalogue (pg. 24). I used blushing bride for the card front and stamped the orchid in Melon Mambo ink. The Ruffled 3D dynamic embossing folder created a beautiful background.

Products used to make this project:


The third card is my design. I think the Old Olive matches so well with the new in-colour Grapefruit Grove. Everyone had their own choice of greetings. ‘Thinking of you’ covers a lot of occasions.

Products used to make this project:


The fourth card was inspired by a card on pg 21 of the 2017-2018 catalogue. We distressed the edges of the card front for a little extra texture. The branches were stamped using the new Stamparatus positioning tool.

Products used to make this project:


Everyone loved the cards they created and are looking forward to the next class. If you would like to join us, please see the class schedule. There won’t be a July class as I will be away but we’ll be back on deck in August.
