Quick Cards & Cute Dogs!

| Blog, Sweet Stamp Shop

Hey there…

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  I’ve been busy working on some magazine commissions but after a long day I decided to indulge in a Sweet Stamp Shop project!

When I am creating with these stamps it brings back how I felt when crafting was just a hobby! Sometimes it’s nice to just be able to create without following a plan or using certain products!  I’m just free to make away! I love this cute little Doggy Dog stamp and knew I would have fun making something with it!


So, what did I make I hear you ask?  Well … Here it is


I have had these Simple Stories papers for a while and I just thought the floral print went so well with this cute little chap! If you like this, you will love what the other DT members have been making.  Pop over to the blog and see what you can find! I’ll be back soon but until then…

Happy Crafting!

Upcycling Baby Food Jars

| Blog, Sweet Stamp Shop

In this house we have an abundance of baby food jars!  Despite making my own food we often use jars when we are out and I make it a point to save them, after all they are rather cute and have so many possibilities, so today whilst thinking of something cute to make using my Sweet Stamp Shop stamps.  I have so many of them and each one is so cute it is hard to choose which one to work with, but today I chose Fishy.

The jar was decorated then filled with the little Million sweets.

As you can see it is simple to create.  I have simply wrapped some paper around the jar, then stamped the images, coloured and cut.  The fish on the front has been cut into a circle and mounted onto a scalloped circle.  The sentiment has been trimmed to a pennant shape and the other images placed onto cocktail sticks and stuck into the sweets.

These would make fab little party gifts and could be made from all the stamps over at The Sweet Stamp Shop.

I know many of you from the UK have probably not come across The Sweet Stamp Shop, but you must take a visit, they are the cutest, best quality stamps I have come across!  I am just a little bit in love with them! Nicole only charges $15 to send over to the UK and trust me once you get over there you will certainly get your monies worth of postage.

That’s all from me today.

Have a lovely weekend.

Say What?

| Blog, Sweet Stamp Shop

Hello there…

As many of you know I recently joined the Sweet Stamps Design Team.  With the little time I have between designing, magazine commissions and demonstrating I like to take on a couple of design team spots too.  This is where I get to choose what lovely brands I get to work with and I make a rule that I would never join a design team using products that I don’t like.  Well let me tell you I was in for a real treat when I joined this design team!  I knew that stamps were cute but I didn’t realise just how cute and I certainly didn’t know that they were going to be the best quality stamps around!  These stamps really are the business!  They give a perfect impression every time and if like me colouring isn’t your strongest point they are simple to colour and still give professional results!

Today I am sharing a card made using the Kitty Cat Stamp Set.  This is such an adorable set and one of those I know I will use time and time again!


These are perfect stamps for creating little cards to keep for when the occasion arrises! If you are anything like me the kids are always asking for cards and off to parties so these are great for occasion!



As you can see I have used a scalloped die to create a frame and placed it on to a square card using 3D foam pads to add dimension. The kitty has been placed into the frame, along with the other elements.  I have taken the cloud from the Stinky Skunk set and stamped the fish bone inside.  All the images have been coloured using Promarkers.

So Stinkin’ Cute!

| Blog, Sweet Stamp Shop

Hello there…

How are we all today?  Finally the school holiday have come to an end here and things are beginning to return to normal!

I have just recently joined the design team of The Sweet Stamp Shop.  For any of you who haven’t come across this site before you really need to take a visit.  They sell a huge array of cute little stamps and they also ship internationally.  There are so many cute sets I had trouble choosing where to begin but eventually this cute little guy won!


Isn’t he just adorable?  I hear you ask…  What did I make? Well I think these stamps are so lovely they don’t need to much fuss surrounding them, they speak for themselves and I wanted it to be the main focal point!

As you can see the stamps create a beautiful clear image. I coloured the little guy using the Ice Grey range of Promarkers.

Shopping List
Stinky Skunk Stamp Set
