30th Anniversary Card

Hi Stampers

Thanks for joining me this afternoon. I have another fancy fold card to share with you today. It is a couple of months from my 30th wedding anniversary. My team had a get together last weekend and I led a project, showing them how to make an arrow card. This fold is easier to make than it looks. We had lots of fun, as we always do. I forgot to photograph their creations.

I decided to make the card for my husband for our anniversary. Unfortunately, I made it from almost entirely retired product, so even though I think it is lovely, these products are no longer available. However, there are plenty of gorgeous products available at the moment, just take a look at the catalogues in the righthand side bar.


The above pic shows how the card looks flat. I used 2018 SaleABration Designer Paper, 2018 gold & copper washi tape, Large Number Thinlit Dies and the coordinating Number of Years stamp set (all retired). The greetings were gold embossed and the numbers were cut from Gold Glimmer Paper. The pic below shows how it looks when standing.


I think the second pic gives a much better view of the card. I hope hubby likes it. And I hope you like it too. I’d love to hear what you think.

That’s it for now, hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

How to Make an Explosion Box Card

In my last post I showed you a very fancy explosion box card I had made for a friend’s husband.

I received a request for instructions to make the card. Click here for a link to a Pinterest pin of a template created by Angela Lorenz who was a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Sydney and I would call the Queen of Explosion Boxes.

Angela has provided dimensions for the box, the lid and the layers, and you will find many examples of her beautiful explosion boxes on her page.

The main tip I would give is not to stamp anything too high on the outer image panels, because it may be covered by the lid. Ask me how I know this? 🙂

Hope you find this helpful.

Animal Exhibition Suite

Hi stampers

Thanks for stopping by.


The Animal Outing Bundle is so cute and serves a number of occasions. A friend recently had both a great-granddaughter and a great-grandson born in the same week, so I created this card to offer her congratulations.

I masked the pouch when I stamped the kangaroo, then stamped the pouch and the two koalas on a scrap of card. I coloured them, cut them out and attached to the kangaroo. Don’t you think it’s cute?t

By the Bay in Blues

Hi Stampers

Thanks for dropping by!

Today’s card is one created mostly by my trusty downline Vicki for my launch. She did all the colouring with her blends, then I mounted it on the card and placed it on the Display Board for my launch. Hasn’t she done a lovely job? I love the colour combination, Night of Navy and Mint Macaroon and I think the embossed backgrounds looks a bit like wind! Some of the products used are listed below.

Product List
By The Bay Cling Stamp Set [149739] $0.00 Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder [147923] $13.00 Night Of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers Combo Pack [144040] $15.50 Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers Combo Pack [147283] $15.50
