These lovely screen cards have been all the go for the last few months  It is amazing though looking back in many books and being in the craft industry for so long I have seen many of these ideas come and go over the past 30-40 years.  Nothing ever seems really new.  The amazing thing is that each time they are reinvented they become even more beautiful. The card above has been made from our Sale-a-bration stamp set Lotus Blossom.  I thought the screen card would fit this beautiful three step stamp set beautifully.

This screen card was made from a set called Asian Artistry which was a lovely Hostess set back about 5 years ago.

Butterflies and Sale-a-bration

Butterflies a sign of freedom and beauty.  I have used one of our lovely Sale-a-brations free papers and used Bermuda Bay Ink pad and dauber to give the background splogs of colour.  Under our Crisp Cantalope sale-a-bration ribbon I have used our new Ribbon Trim which is Sahara Sands Lace Trim just to add a little elegance to the card.  Best of all our beautiful new Butterflies Thinlit die adds a touch of beauty to the card.

Stampin Up Builder Bow Punch Sneak Peek

Oh my these are just the cutest little possums all the amazing things you can do with it..
This amazing Parcel Pom Pom for decorating boxes and Parcels and all things needing just a little finishing off..  I used the paper All a Bloom little DSP Book.  I even used the end pieces I have cut the bow out with to trim around the bottom edge of the Box.
I think it is quite a cutie to add a little Bling around the boxes or packets too.
Have a great week.  Will be working on my next sneak peek.  So keep an eye out.
Happy Paper Crafting

Stampin Bow Builder Punch Sneak Peak

Hi my dear friends wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and a very special new Year.
This is a little sneak Peak at our new Bow Punch in our new Occasions Catalogue.
Just having a little play today and this is the card I came up with using our beautiful Bow Builder Punch and Watercolour Winter Simply Created Card Kit.
These beautiful little bows simply blew my mind when I had made them and put them on a card.  They are just beautiful.
Using the same Kit but the Stamp Set Wonderous Wreath and the Bow Builder Punch this is what I came up with again.  They are so easy to create and so cute on a card.
Looking forward to sharing a few more of our surprises in the next few days.
Happy Holidays
and Happy Crafting Carolyn

Stampin Up Many Merry Stars

Twinkle twinkle many merry stars
 shining in the sky,
Just waiting for Christmas to be nigh.

Twinkle twinkle cards and stars to make,
Make them fast and make them last.
Christmas time seems to come and go
with many merry wishes,

but in Australia there's no snow.

Let us celebrate
Day and  Night
Sun or Snow
Christmas always should be bright.

So with one accord let us celebrate our
Christ Child Born

Happy Christmas to all my dear

Many Merry Stars Create a Kit Stampin Up

This is a fabulous kit, I have used my quilling skills to make this Large Wreath which is big enough use on a Door or over a Mantel Piece.
I have decorated it with Australian Wild Flower Quilling and used the beautiful Wooden Snow Flakes that came in the Kit.  The Banner, Wording and Stars  are all in the kit plus another 24 smaller sized stars from tiny to bigger.  The Largest one is 38 cm wide.  The other stars could be stuffed with Jewellery and the larger ones could be filled with chocolates and toffees and allsorts of bits and pieces to decorate a Christmas Tree or add as Gifts under the  Tree.  I just love this set and they were so easy to put together too.  All instructions included all you needed to buy were the gifts to fill and maybe some adhesive as the stars had adhesive strips to place around them. Plenty of bits and pieces to decorate with.

Although my large star I used strips of cardstock or quilling paper to make my Wild Flowers with.

This set came out on our Christmas additional brochure.
If you would like to buy it you can click on my online Shop and buy there.   Many Merry Stars Simply Created Kit Item No 138104
Happy Crafting for Christmas.
