Global Stamping Friends August Kids Card Blog Hop With Donna Gray Stampin Up!Australia

August Global Stamping Friends Kids Card Blog Hop With Donna Gray Stampin Up!(r) NSW Australia!!!

Welcome to another Global Friends Blog Hop!You are currently visiting Donna Gray's Blog I live in the Northern Rivers NSW Australia in a small suburb called Goonellabah.

I am so excited to take part in this blog hop as it is my first ever blog hop I am new to blogging but I am loving sharing all my crafting ideas with like minded people. The Theme of this blog hop was to design a child's card which I tend to struggle with. So I set upon the task of designing a children's card. I wanted it to be fun and colourful. Something that would really catch the child's eye within seconds so I decided to use the Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle from Stampin Up! 





The cookie cutter punch made making my little teddy's easier & quick to construct I used a combination of The new in Colours Lemon Lime Twist Berry Burst also combined with some of our other card stock colours Pacific Point Cherry Cobbler & Bermuda Bay.
I have also used a few different Stamp sets to create this child's card. I have used Cookie Cutter Christmas Happy Birthday Gorgeous & Balloon Celebrations Stamp sets from Stampin Up! I am loving the new birthday stamps sets from our new Annual Catalogue!!
All these items can be purchased online Click Here to Shop

I used my Aqua Painter to do some water colouring background behind my Teddy's using our lemon lime twist & crumb cake ink pads. To add the glitter on my Berry Burst Teddy I used our VersaMark Ink Pad Stampin Up1 Heat & Stick powder & added some Gold Stampin Glitter just to add some bling to the card.


This is the front view and the inside view of my fun Teddy card The balloons added a little fun to the card it definitely looks like the Teddy's are having a party!!

Global Stamping Friends August Special Anniversary Theme with Donna Gray

Hello & welcome to The Global Stamping Friends Special Anniversary Blog Hop for August 2017.
My name is Donna Gray & I am a Stampin Up!® Demonstrator from The Northern Rivers Area In New South Wales Australia I have been a demonstrator for just over a year now & this is my second time blog hopping with the Global Stamping Friends group. Our theme this month was a Special Anniversary so I created this Beautiful Card using the Daisy Delight Bundle

For my card base I used our lovely Sweet Sugar Plum Card Stock. I punched out a daisy in the front whisper white layer which I stamped with the fresh fig Ink Pad The 2 toned daisy's were stamped using the fresh fig ink and sweet sugar plum ink I also used crumb cake ink pad for the centers of the daisy's. I have offset the daisy to show the sweet sugar plum card base through to make a 2 coloured Daisy and embellished the center with a gold faceted gem. The Fresh Fig Ribbon just really finished the front of perfectly. The happ…

Mountain Air Diorama Card

Awesome Diorama Card with The Mountain Air Bundle When I first laid my eyes on this Mountain Air Bundle that is new in our Stampin UP! 2020 Mini Catalogue I felt like it was screaming out to me to do a diorama card

You may say what is a Diorama it is juts a scene with all different layers made in like a box type frame I felt like the mountains & trees in the Mountain Air bundle would be perfect to create a beautiful scene


The workings of this card are pretty simple to make  It takes 2 layers of Whisper White This Card stock cut at 4"x5 3/4" I used one of our stitched rectangles to make the frame for the front  The working mechanism of this card was created by 2 pieces of Seaside spray cut at 3"x5 3/4 inches Scored with the 3" side at the top of your trimmer and score every 1/2" eg 1/2", 1", 1 1/2", 2"& 2 1/2" I attached the concertina sides to the front frame that I sponged with my oval makeup brushes with a combination of Mos…
