Stamp Review Crew | Petal Palette

Hello Monday – the third Monday of February, which means I’m hopping with the delightful Stamp Review Crew.

This talented group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators hail from all around the world.  This week we’re sharing designs with the super popular stamp set Petal Palette.

Get ready for some amazing designs to inspire you!

My absolute favourite from this stamp set – the one stamp that has been overworked – is the large trio of flowers.

So, that was my first creation…

Petal Palette | kelly kent

I used the no-line watercolouring technique to colour the flowers.

Ink the stamp in a soft colour (I prefer Sahara Sand) and stamp onto scrap to remove most of the colour, then again onto your piece of Whisper White.

Use an Aqua Painter to go over the image lines and shade within the flowers/leaves.

Petal Palette | kelly kent

For my second card, I set myself a challenge to use the other stamps in case 2.

This was the result…

Petal Palette | kelly kent

And I’m so happy with how it turned out!!!

It can be fun outside of the comfort zone!

Petal Palette | kelly kent

My tip for creating outside of your usual style or realm is to keep as much the same as you can.  For this card I chose colours I know I like (yellow, gray, white & black are a favourite combination of mine) and a layout & stamping style I’ve used before.  All I had to do was slide the stamps into the design and we have a card!!!

If you haven’t added this set to your supplies yet, I bet this blog hop is going to drive it straight to the top of your list!

Keep hopping and visit my gorgeous friend Lou Kitzelman.

Lou and I have been chatting lots lately while we plan some great projects to share with you in the future.  Watch this space!!!  Click here to visit the Stamp in Confidence blog.

Stamp Review Crew | Tabs for Everything

Hello Monday! It’s amazing how quickly each one rolls around, but boy am I always glad to be here to see another week start.

Thanks for stopping by today – I’m hopping with the gorgeous Stamp Review Crew.  A huge welcome to Jay Soriano who joins the Crew this month.  You may have already hopped over from Jay – isn’t his work amazing???

Today’s stamp set of choice is the Tabs for Everything stamp set and coordinating Circle Tab Punch.

There’s lots of cool things you can do with this bundle from pimping your planner, 3D items and fancy cards & scrapbook pages.  I used it last year to create tabs for my Annual Catalogue – see that here.

I love all the little cute sentiments and teeny tiny stamps!  There’s 53 stamps in all – that’s a lot of stamping options!!!

Sometimes my creative journey starts in one place and ends up in a totally different place.  Skip through to the photos if you don’t need this little bit of crazy back story!!!

I started thinking about how great this stamp set is for people who love their planners (….. not me, I’m a digital girl as much as I love the idea of a planner).

Which then lead me to using the stamps on pages with lines…… which made me think of the lined cards in the Memories & More Card Kits that I usually struggle to use on traditional greeting cards – because of the lines or grids.

I often have a stash of those left in any card kit I buy.  But they were totally perfect for this theme, so I set about making postcard (no fold) style cards using a 4″x6″ Memories & More card, a 3″x4″ Memories & More card and coordinating stamps from the Tabs for Everything stamp set.

What a hoot!  My plan for these cards is to write the message on the front and post in an envelope, but you could also write on the back if you prefered.

Here are the 5 designs in more detail….

Next up is my lovely friend Tanya Boser – I just love everything she makes!

Thank you for hopping with us!  We’ll be back again on the 3rd Monday of the month with another great stamp set to share!

Memories & More Card Kits…

Stamp Review Crew | SAB Bonus Hop

There’s nothing quite as fun as a bonus anything!!!

This is a fun bonus because we’re blogging about…. {BONUS PRODUCTS!}

That’s right, a whole blog hop by the gorgeous Stamp Review Crew sharing what they love about the Sale-A-Bration choices for 2018!

And there’s lots of lovely choice (click to enlarge)….

*** Sale-A-Bration rewards in Australian dollars (check with your local demonstrator for spend requirements in your region).


Today I’m sharing with you the oh-so-lovely Memories & More cards that you can choose for absolutely nothing with a $90 order.

These pretty floral designs coordinate with the Sweet Soiree range in the Occasions catalogue.  You get 72 double sided cards (52 small and 20 large).

,As always, you can use these cards to make scrapbook pages, pocket style memory keeping and use them as embellishments/DSP on a card.

But I started thinking, what else could these tiny pretties do?

They could easily be used for love notes in lunchboxes, writing a fancy shopping list or slipped into a clear phone cover for an interchangeable pattern!

You could also make a pretty bookmark….

Stamp Review Crew - Sweet Soiree Memory & More Cards | kelly kent

How apt is ‘love this story’ that I chopped from two of the cards and stuck to one of my favourite designs (chopped to 2″ wide and punched using the Scalloped Tag Topper).

Stamp Review Crew - Sweet Soiree Memory & More Cards | kelly kent


Next up I used the little cards – chopped in half – to made a banner for Miss Papercraft.

Stamp Review Crew - Sweet Soiree Memory & More Cards | kelly kent

She starts Kindy next week and isn’t all that keen on learning the letters in her name.  So I designed this as a game that she could put the letters in order and then thread them on the ribbon string.

Stamp Review Crew - Sweet Soiree Memory & More Cards | kelly kent

I work in Child Development, so snuck in the fine motor threading skill as well as the letter recognition!!!  She’ll never know we’re working – because it’s so pretty!!!

Stamp Review Crew - Sweet Soiree Memory & More Cards | kelly kent


The last project I’m sharing was inspired by the gorgeous Jackie Aitken.  She sent me a card last year with my address on a Memories & More card – stuck to the front of the envelope.  Jackie has a series of blog posts showcasing how she made 44 cards with the Sweet Soiree Memories & More card pack.  Click here to visit the first post in the series.

Stamp Review Crew - Sweet Soiree Memory & More Cards | kelly kent

The extra detail on the envelope made me smile and I’ve haven’t forgotten it!  I know she won’t mind me sharing it with you.


You can see how easy it is to use these pretty cards and how many ways you can use them in your crafty projects.

Stamp Review Crew | Picture Perfect Birthday

Can you believe it’s Monday again?   And the second Monday of the month, so I’m delighted to be hopping with the Stamp Review Crew.

The Stamp Review Crew is a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world who get together on the first and third Monday of each month and all create using the same stamp set.

Today we’re sharing ideas for the Picture Perfect Birthday set.  

You’ll find this gorgeous set on page 5 of the Occasions catalogue.  It’s part of the Picture Perfect Party suite – which really is ‘perfect’ because there’s a whole range of coordinating products to work with also!

This stamp set is a mix of fabulous sentiments (love those fonts) and cute party images!

I’ve made two cards to share with you today.  They both feature the Picture Perfect Party DSP – it’s too fun not to use!!!

The first one uses the cute “wonderful, brilliant, fabulous” sentiment and the candles

Stamp Review Crew - Picture Perfect Birthday | kelly kent

The sentiment is stamped in versamark, then heat embossed with white powder.  Then, using my Stampin’ Blends, I coloured over the wonderful, brilliant & fabulous.  Such an awesome way to add some pop to the sentiment.  After colouring, I liberally coloured the words with my Clear Wink of Stella pen.  Perhaps a bit too liberally – but can you ever have too much glitter???

Both my cards use the same colour combination – lifted from the colours in the DSP.

Picture Perfect Birthday Colour Combination | kelly kent

I think the catalogue lists Peekaboo Peach, but I’ve upped the intensity to Pumpkin Pie!


This is my second card.  I’ve added in a confetti throwing panda. I just love that sentiment!!!

He’s from the Party Pandas stamp set that you can select as your {FREE} Sale-A-Bration order with any $90 purchase.

Stamp Review Crew - Picture Perfect Birthday | kelly kent

Confetti tip: punch out perfect little confetti dots using the Cookie Builder punch.  Don’t try to add glue to the confetti and stick to your card.  Instead, dab tiny dots of tombow glue to your card and drop the confetti dots on top.  This will give you great placement and no mess (if you keep the dots of glue teeny tiny!).

Thanks for hopping with me today!!!

If you’ve only made it through a few posts or you’re starting here, make sure to keep pressing next to jump through the whole Crew. The inspiration is “perfect”!

From here, you’re off to visit the gorgeous Mickey Roberts in the US.

Stamp Review Crew | Bella & Friends

What a great way to start 2018 – with a Stamp Review Crew blog hop!

Thanks for joining our group of international demonstrators as we all showcase a stamp set.  You can find the main SRC post here.

You are starting the New Year with Kelly Kent in Bunbury, Western Australia.  You may have already visited Nikki on the east coast of Australia, and the next stop is Cindy Elam in the US (I think it’s still 2017 there!).

Today’s stamp set is Bella & Friends from the Annual Catalogue….

It’s the perfect set for any project that needs to be cute!

Although I often make cards, for my blog projects, I’m starting this year with a 3D item using a Pizza Box as the base.  I’m was so happy to hear that these cute little boxes will continue to be available into 2018!

Stamp Review Crew - Bella & Friends | kelly kent

Bella & her turtle friend are coloured using Watercolor Pencils & smoothed over with an Aqua Painter.

We have so many amazing colouring options in the range at the moment!  Have you gotten your watercolour pencils out lately?  I’d been neglecting them, but after playing with my Lots of Happy kit during the week, I was reinspired.  That’s where I borrowed the Lemon Lime Twist Pencil from – there’s a few sneaky new colours!!!

Stamp Review Crew - Bella & Friends | kelly kent

What’s on the inside????

Stamp Review Crew - Bella & Friends | kelly kent

I’m thinking that this would make a great ‘by the phone’ type pad – only no one I know has a tabletop phone anymore!!!  But a notepad you have lying around the house for when you need to jot down a shopping list, phone number or leave a note for someone.

A really cute note!  All the pages are stamped with images from the stamp set…

Stamp Review Crew - Bella & Friends | kelly kent

And since there’s cute pictures, I thought it would be good to include some colouring pencils to up the fun factor!

Stamp Review Crew - Bella & Friends | kelly kent

I’m sure you spied the calendar on there – it’s always handy to have a calendar on hand when you’re planning ahead!!  I love the size & quality of these calendars available from Craftie Cafe.  Plus, it’s the time of the year when having calendars on projects is very practical!

Stamp Review Crew - Bella & Friends | kelly kent

The paper pad came from Kmart Australia I had in my stash. I can’t find it on the website at the moment, so it might not be available at the moment.  It measures 8cm x 8cm.

Stamp Review Crew - Bella & Friends | kelly kent


Thanks for joining me for this edition of the Stamp Review Crew!

Hop over to Cindy Elam to continue with cute & cuddly inspiration featuring Bella and her friends!

Happy New Year – I hope 2018 is wonderful for you & your loved ones!

Stamp Review Crew | Christmas Quilt

It’s that time of year when it’s the last of everything for 2017!

This is the last blog hop the Stamp Review Crew will do for 2017.  A big thanks to Tanya Boser for all her hard work coordinating the hops – it’s a pleasure to be involved with a talented group of stampers!

The theme for today is the Christmas Quilt stamp set – and coordinating Quilt Builder Framelits.

I thought this bundle would be around forever – but sadly it made its way to the retirement list.  If you have it on your wishlist, you’ll need to buy it soon.  Once 2nd January comes around, these items will no longer be available (or earlier if stocks sell out!).


I have been making, packaging, wrapping and giving lots of gifts this festive season.  Between coaches, teachers, friends & family, there’s lots of opportunities to share some handmade love in Australia!!!

I can wrap a box like a pro.  One of my jobs while I was at university was selling fragrance in a department store – so I spent hours wrapping gift boxes and boxes of perfume for lucky ladies & men!

Give me a box to wrap any day!  But irregular shapes are not my thing!!!  So if it’s not a box, it’s going in a gift bag.  Easy, fun & pretty – ticks all the boxes!

And it also provides opportunities for coordinating cards.  As usual, Stampin’ Up! are right on trend with packaging options this Christmas.

Here’s two cards that were inspired by a gift bag – using the Christmas Quilt stamp set!

First up is a Christmas theme…

Stamp Review Crew Christmas Quilt | kelly kent

This one was based on a wine bottle bag featuring brightly coloured Christmas trees.

Stamp Review Crew Christmas Quilt | kelly kent

I used the quilted triangle stamp to recreate the cute little Christmas trees and the trunk using the stitching!

Stamp Review Crew Christmas Quilt | kelly kent


The second card is a thank you card for Miss Papercraft’s teacher…

Stamp Review Crew Christmas Quilt | kelly kent

I used the diamond pieces to recreate the geometric pattern on the bag!

Stamp Review Crew Christmas Quilt | kelly kent

You could use the dies to cut these out, but I just quickly snipped them with my paper scissors.

The colours are Dapper Denim, Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist & Pool Party.

Stamp Review Crew Christmas Quilt | kelly kent


I had so much fun playing with the shapes and making my creations nothing to do with quilting!!!  There’s so many ways to use our stamping supplies.

I know you’re going to see lots of great quilted creations if you keep hopping.

Visit Dawn Tidd in the US next for her great ideas.

Thank you for your support in 2017!

See you next year – our first Stamp Review Crew hop goes live on 1st January 2018!

Stamp Review Crew | Wood Words

Can you believe we’re down to our final two Stamp Review Crew posts for 2017???

What an amazing year of projects it’s been.  You can revisit all my SRC projects by clicking here.

I love being part of this design team.  It’s filled with international demonstrators that are as lovely as they are talented!

You’re currently hopping with Kelly Kent in Bunbury, Australia.  From here it’s back to the US to visit Stesha Bloodhart. Be sure to complete the blog hop by clicking through the next button at the end of each post.

Today’s theme takes us back to the Annual Catalogue and one of the sets we got to play with last April at the OnStage event – Wood Words.

It has coordinating framelits including a cute little wood crate.  You’re going to love the diversity on this hop!

My favourite part of this stamp set is the block lettered sentiments, the pretty floral stamp and the lined shapes.  There’s so much potential!

I started my Stamp Review Crew creations by using the floral stamp as a bottom ‘peekaboo’ layer for this Navy & white card.

Stamp Review Crew - Wood Words | kelly kent

It’s such a stylish colour combination that I kept the design clean & simple.  The flowers are stamped on a base layer, which is then partially covered up by a small strip at the bottom and a larger panel at the bottom.  This then creates a sense of the flowers being in a window or peekaboo panel.

Here’s what is looks like from a side view…

Stamp Review Crew - Wood Words | kelly kent

That ribbon just makes me smile – so luxurious!!!  This bow has three layers of ribbon all tied together in a bow and attached with a glue dot.

Stamp Review Crew - Wood Words | kelly kent


My next project is for a friend who sells skincare with a direct sales company called Rodan + Fields.  They are newly launched in Australia and in the 3 months since launch, she has achieved wonderful success.

R+F uses lots of hearts in their imagery, so I thought the heart stamp in their range of colours would be a nice way to show her I’m thinking of her.

Stamp Review Crew - Wood Words | kelly kent

I actually have a number of customers who are direct sales consultants for companies like R+F, doTERRA, Jamberry, Tupperware Nature Direct & Scentsy and buy Stampin’ Up! supplies to use in their own business.  If you are a direct sales consultant in Australia, get in touch with me to find out how to bring your customer thanks yous, team recognition and packaging up to the next level!

Stamp Review Crew - Wood Words | kelly kent

The Sweetheart punch (currently on the Australian Clearance Rack) is perfect for R+F too!  Punches are so easy to use and are awesome for notecards, tags, envelope seals & packaging!


My final project for today (I know…3 creations in one blog post!) was inspired by the “Fresh Treats” sentiment.   And the choice of baked treat?  By the semi-circle stamp in the Wood Words set.  It makes awesome bananas if you stamp in yellow and then use the stamp edge in Soft Suede for the banana ends.

A banana theme is actually perfect, because who doesn’t love beautifully wrapped Banana Bread??

SNEAK PEEK ALERT…. I’ve combined the Wood Words stamp set for my packaging with some upcoming products from Occasions 2018.  The Tutti-Frutti DSP has bananas!!!

Stamp Review Crew - Wood Words | kelly kent

These are my top secret tips for any kind of bake sale (or cake stall as they are called here in Australia).

  • Bake mini – these little loaf tins are the perfect size to increase the cute factor!
  • Disguise your cake as ‘bread’.  It sounds like a healthier choice but we all know it’s really not!
  • Wrap in wax paper for a cafe style look
  • Finish with a cute tag & patterned paper!

Stamp Review Crew - Wood Words | kelly kent

Want to try out my Banana Bread recipe?  Here it is:

In a bowl, combine 150g self-raising flour, 75g plain flour and 100-200g brown sugar (depending on how sweet you like it).  Add 125g melted butter, 2-3 mashed bananas (I like lots of banana) and 2 eggs.  Mix well.  Bake in mini loaf tins for 25 mins in 180 degree oven.

My recipe is based on this one from taste.com.au.

Yum!!!  It really is a crowd pleaser.  And a great recipe to use up all the bananas that enjoy visiting school but come home at the end of each day!


That’s all from me today!  Visit the gorgeous & talented Stesha Bloodhart next.

You can find the full list of all participants here.  Please accept our apologies for any links that may be not working shortly after the hop goes live.  Sometimes it takes a little time to fix the inevitable IT issues!

Thanks for joining us!  See you in 2 weeks for the final Stamp Review Crew post of 2017!

Stamp Review Crew | Painted Harvest

Hello & happy Monday!  Thanks for joining us for the Stamp Review Crew blog hop.

Myself and a group of my wonderful Stampin’ Up! friends from around the world share with you a project or two inspired by a stamp set from the pages of the Stampin’ Up! catalogue.

Today we’re highlighting the Painted Harvest stamp set.

I’m excited to share with you that this stamp set and coordinating Leaf Punch will carryover to the Occasions catalogue and continue to be available until at least the end of May 2018.

However, discount available at present when you buy these items in a bundle (stamp set & punch together = $58.50) will not continue into the new catalogue. So, if this stamp set is on your wishlist, you’ll want to purchase it before 2nd January 2018 to get the best deal!


For my project today, I’ve made a sweet little gift set with a calendar and note-writing paper.

Stamp Review Crew Painted Harvest | kelly kent

This style of easel card are often made with post it notes in the pocket, but I wanted this one to be extra special so I stamped each of the notecard pages with the Painted Harvest stamps.

Stamp Review Crew Painted Harvest | kelly kent

A stamp positioning tool makes job like this so much easier – I can’t wait til we all get our hands on the Stamparatus!  See here for all the details.  The next reservation window opens on the 6th Dec.

Stamp Review Crew Painted Harvest | kelly kent

We’re going to see a rainbow of Painted Harvest flowers during this blog hop – because the only limitation on colour combinations is your imagination!

I’ve stamped mine in Blushing Bride, Powder Pink and Smoky Slate.

Stamp Review Crew Painted Harvest | kelly kent

A cute gift like this deserves amazing packaging, so I’ve decorated a Clear Acetate Box. These are the perfect size for Australian sized cards – thanks SU! for considering the needs of the international market!

Stamp Review Crew Painted Harvest | kelly kent

It’s great to be able to continue the theme of the gift through to the packaging with the same colours & design features.

I always love a stamp set and punch bundle and this one is no exception!  The leaf punch is a great embellishment for so many projects.

Of course, I love leaves in vellum!

Stamp Review Crew Painted Harvest | kelly kent

The ‘for you’ comes from one of the sentiments.  I just masked out the other words that I didn’t need.

From this…

Stamp Review Crew Painted Harvest | kelly kent

To this…

I love pretty gifts!  Everyone should be able to own a little piece of handmade prettiness!

Stamp Review Crew | Eastern Beauty

I’m so excited for the first Stamp Review Crew hop of November.  You are hopping with an international group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who share projects using the same stamp set on the first and third Monday of each month.

If you’re already travelling, you’ve landed here in Bunbury, Australia from the lovely Stesha Bloodhart from the US.  Next blog is back to the US to visit Holly Stene.  If there’s any kinks in the first couple of hours, pop back later.  We try to get them sorted as quick as possible!

Today’s theme is the Eastern Beauty stamp set.

Sometimes when a stamp set has been around for a while, new inspiration is just what’s needed to give a stamp set a new lease on life!

The Eastern Palace suite was available as a pre-order during April this year, and then launched in the Annual Catalogue in June, so it’s a wonderful time to revisit and see what ideas the Crew can share with us.


When a stamp set comes as part of a product suite, it can be easy to get stuck in the colours & styling of the suite.

So, for my blog hop project, I wanted to take it in a totally different direction.

I’ve channelled a little bit of our faithful leader – Tanya Boser’s styling, and this is what I’ve come up with…

Stamp Review Crew Eastern Beauty | kelly kent

It’s a birthday card for my Mum (who will probably see it here before I wish her a happy birthday in person today!) – Happy Birthday Mum (aka Nanna Papercraft!).

I’ve used the 6 point flower stamp in full strength to stamp the outline, and then used the solid image created by flipping the stamp over and using the ‘back’ of the stamp as a stamp to add colour over the flower.

Stamp Review Crew Eastern Beauty | kelly kent

It was such a fun technique and can be used for any photopolymer stamp that has a symmetrical shape and doesn’t have the middle cut out.  I have no idea if it has an official name, but I’m calling this technique “reverse side stamping”.

The colours used for this card:
*first colour is the flower, second colour is the colour fill (stamped off )

Sweet Sugarplum & Blushing Bride
Crushed Curry & Daffodil Delight
Island Indigo & Bermuda Bay

The fun sentiment is from the Big On Birthdays stamp set.

Stamp Review Crew Eastern Beauty | kelly kent

It was fun to make a card that looked so different to all the other cards I’d made using this suite.

I can’t wait for you to see all the other fun ideas on this hop.

Please visit my amazing friend Holly Stene next up…

Thanks for joining us!

Stamp Review Crew | Beautiful You

Hey there!  Thanks for joining us for this edition of the Stamp Review Crew.

You’re hopping with an international line-up of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, all creating with the same stamp set.

Currently, you’re with Kelly Kent in Bunbury, Western Australia.

I’m nestled in between two lovely roses from the US – Linda Callahan before me and Heidi Baks after me.  Click on the ‘next’ button below to visit Heidi when you’re done with my projects.

Today’s stamp set is the very popular Beautiful You…

We first saw this at the Brisbane OnStage event in November 2016 and there was a very collective ‘ooooo’ around the auditorium.

Since it’s release, there have been some truly beautiful and very innovative cards made with this set.

You’re going to love the fresh eyes the Stamp Review Crew bring to it today!


I’ve decided to combine it with the newly released “Beachy Little Christmas” stamp set.

The beach shack stamp is just perfect for the dancing/cartwheeling lady.  She’s my favourite – so carefree & happy!

The first concept has been swirling around in my mind for over a week now and was such fun to bring to life!

Stamp Review Crew Beautiful You | kelly kent

It has a shaker portion within the card front, the lady dancing across the card and the shacks peeking through from the middle!

Stamp Review Crew Beautiful You | kelly kent

I’ve stamped one of my favourite sentiments from the set in Black Archival ink directly onto the Window Sheet.

Stamp Review Crew Beautiful You | kelly kent

This is the middle of the card – the shaker section is hidden by a third panel which I folded into the middle of the card.

Stamp Review Crew Beautiful You | kelly kent

How cute are those beach shacks all lined up?

Once this card was finished, it inspired me to make another card, with similar elements, but not the shaker section.

Stamp Review Crew Beautiful You | kelly kent

I’m actually tempted to say I like this one better… Isn’t it funny how things sometimes come together out of nowhere!

Stamp Review Crew Beautiful You | kelly kent

I stamped the lady first and then used the masking technique to block her out while I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line up the beach shacks.

The colouring was done using ink pads & an Aqua Painter – my preferred way of colouring.  So quick, easy & forgiving!

Stamp Review Crew Beautiful You | kelly kent


Thanks for joining me for today’s hop.

Next up is the lovely Heidi Baks & her fabulous use of the Beautiful stamp set.
