Tickled Pink For You ~ Kelly's Stamping Friends Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to this blog hop celebrating the lovely Kelly Kent's 5th anniversary with Stampin' Up! What a marvellous achievement and definitely one to be happy and celebrating!

You might have come across my blog from Rochelle Blok's blog (she is an AMAZING Artisan team member...what an honour). After you finish looking here, pop along to the lovely Jacqui Crouch's beautiful blog.

The theme of the blog hop's theme is 'Happy' and I immediately thought of the new In Colours that make me SO HAPPY...especially that gorgeous Lemon Lime Twist...that is enough to make anyone HAPPY!

I alos won this beautiful FABULOUS FLAMINGO stamp set in the all attendee giveaway at Onstage in Sydney back in April and I was busting to use it as it's so trendy and fun and anything fun makes me happy!


Here's a look at the card. I love how it turned out with the pops of Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Lemon Lime Twist and finished with the beautiful gold heat embossing. 

I have added a touch of gold metallic thread for some extra bling and some rhinestones!


Here's a close up which really features the beautiful little accents.
I did fussy cut that gorgeous little flamingo out but it wasn't a drama at all with it's bold lines. 

Now the only question left...is does this card make you happy? Are you excited to use these new products when they are released officially on June 1st? 

I can't wait!

International Project Highlights ~ Masculine

Welcome back to my blog for another international project highlights post.
If you have hopped along to my blog from Kylie Bertucci's blog I am Kayla MacAulay and I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator from Tasmania Australia.

The theme this month is to create a project that is masculine.
I have loved the Mixed Drinks set since I very first signed up to Stampin' Up! a year ago and it has been in my stash every since. I have however had limited opportunities to use it so I took this as a great opportunity to make a card that I am sure a lot of guys would love!

I hope you enjoy...

p.s. If you like my card, I would love you to vote for it. You can go along and vote for your favourite card by clicking here.


I was actually initially inspired by the colours in the Urban Underground Designer Series Paper to create this card. I love the mixture of grays and black with the gorgeous Delighful Dijon to create the 'beer'. Mixed and combined with the textures from the metallic thread and burlap ribbon, I think it gives it a really authentic masculine feel.


I took the liberty to stamp the inside of the card also as I really love to have it match with the front. Not to mention how great do the sentiments in this stamp set match up for inside and out?
I love it when Stampin' Up! do that.


Here is a close up of the texture I have created.

I finished the glass of beer by adding a layer of clear Wink of Stella to the beer foam to give it that authentic shimmery shine! There is nothing wrong with a bit of glitz on a male card ;) 

Here's a look at the colour combination I have used for this card.

I really hope you have enjoyed checking out my card.

Much love,

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop ~ Retiring Products (Sending Love)

Welcome to the Stampin' Dreams blog hop which will be running fortnightly.
You are currently visiting Kayla Renee's blog from Australia.
I hope you enjoy my post today featuring retiring products from the Annual and Occasions catalogues which will retire on May 31st.

Please see all details below and a list of all the others participating in the hop underneath these pictures.

Today I have used the Sending Love suite of products from the Occasions catalogue to create this gorgeous 'sending love' themed card.


I wanted to create a card that was more than just 'valentines day'
Here is Australia we don't really celebrate Valentines Day, but I think it is fun to send cards letting someone know that you love them all year round.
Plus, there are always anniversaries and special occasions that you share with your loved ones.


My favourite part of this suite was those teeny tiny envelopes and the cute little liners that you could tuck inside. They also come with envelope flap liners but I didn't use those on this particular card.


I have also used the cute little embellishments that come as part of this collection which include those tiny little paper clips and the gorgeous wooden hearts. They are just adorable and I am going to miss those!


Here's a look at the card opened. As you can see it has a pretty funky edging. I have achieved this by using one of the framelits that comes in the set. How 3D and cool does this look?

To make it stand out even more I have backed it with some of the gorgeous designer paper from the suite. 

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my card today using retiring products.
