Stamp Review Crew – Labeler Alphabet

Hello Monday!  Hope your week has started well!

Today for Stamp Review Crew, this wonderful international crew of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators are creating using the Labeler Alphabet stamp set.

You may have just come from the gorgeous Linda Callahan in the US!  Or starting here with  me in Australia.  Next stop is Tanya back in the US!  Wonderfully international – and very talented!!!

This stamp set is a long time favourite of mine!  Alphabet stamps are already good for when the sentiments you’ve got don’t quite fit the occasion!  Or to add that personal touch.

This sassy get well card I made earlier in the year is still one of my favourites.


I’ve made three cards to share with you today.

The first card is to go with a present I bought for Miss Papercraft’s teacher.  They’ve been reading all of the books in the Roald Dahl series, so when I saw a Roald Dahl fact book / sampler, I thought it would make a great classroom resource.

Of course every good present needs a card, so I made this card inspired by the part in Matilda where she telekinetically raises a piece of chalk to the blackboard and writes on it.

I left the ‘A’ unfinished as I’m sure there are lots of adjectives that a teacher could use to describe a class full of year 1 students!!!  Awesome, atrocious, amazing, awful….

It’s a vocabulary lesson right there!

The next card is for a little Warrior who has a long history of medical treatment.  I lovely friend put me onto the Communified Facebook page, where each month they share the story of a chronically ill child.

June’s Warrior is Tayte.  He loves lego, so I made him this interactive Lego waterfall card.

The Labeler Alphabet stamp set was handy to not only add his name (because a personal touch is always awesome) but the ‘pull’ instruction so they could work out how to get the card to move.

And the final card for today is another mermaid card.  Did you enjoy my colour combinations last week?

Here’s another set of colours – Marina Mist, Sweet Sugarplum, Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizzazz, Berry Burst & Basic Black!

This card is my take on the ‘be a unicorn’ theme.

Who doesn’t want to be a mermaid?

That is all today!!!  As you can see, I love this stamp set a lot!

And find it easy to find ways to use it in my cardmaking, but I can’t wait to see how the rest of the crew have used it!

Next up is the wonderfully talented Tanya Boser

Ultimate PINK Blog Hop

Hello & welcome to a wonderful blog hop organised by Janet Wakeland.

What a great reason to hop – raising awareness for Breast Cancer!

I hope you have enjoyed the pink projects you’ve seen so far.

You’re currently visiting Kelly Kent in Bunbury, Western Australia.

Keep hopping after my project to see more great international creations!


As we near the end of the year (which is coming faster than I’m ready for!), I am being more organised than usual and trying to get some of the cards done that I know I’ll need.

I have two little ballerinas with an end of year dancing concert in a couple of months, so a card for their dancing teacher was definitely on my list.

And you can’t celebrate all things ballet without a splash of pink – which makes it perfect for this hop!

Here’s my ballerina bears….

The bears are stamped in Crumb Cake using the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and their cute little ballerina tutu dresses are made using the Blossom Builder punch.

Add some bling bows – in pink of course and some sparkles and the bears are dressed & ready for the concert!

The sparkles & pink on the front wasn’t quite enough for the Ultimate Pink Blog Hop, so I also decorated the inside of the card with a custom sentiment…

Now, to keep this one away from the Little Misses until it’s ready to give to their wonderful ballet teacher.

I suspect it would get an extra special finish if they helped!!!

If you love this card, I’d love for you to make your own version.  The world needs more pink ballerina bears!!!

Thanks for joining me – and thanks to Janet for organising!

Thoughtful Teacher Thanks – GDP#045

Did you see my DIY Blackboard Letters yesterday???

Well, while a girl has blackboard paint out – she’s gonna play!  I couldn’t resist painting a piece of thick Whipser White cardstock just to see how it would come up.

And it was beautiful!  And perfect for the colour challenge this week at Global Design Project #045.


I’m getting organised early this year and have started an assortment of cards for things that fall in the second half of the year including thank you cards for teachers.

These little gems have an actual blackboard background so that parents or students can write on the black space using chalk.

ESAD Blog Hop – Sneak Peek 2015 Annual Catalogue: Layered Letters Alphabet Stamp Set

Thanks for joining me on another ESAD Blog Hop.  There are only 2 more sleeps until the new catalogue goes live!!!  If you haven’t seen it yet, pop back here tomorrow for the link.  You’ll be in heaven – 189 pages of pure papercraft bliss!

Until then, be dazzled by the work of 13 talented ESAD ladies as they treat you to projects using products that were available to demonstrators on the sneak peek list {and will be available to you very shortly, so start making that wishlist!}.

If you are doing the round trip, you’ve come from fellow WA demo Andrea Buckland, who makes the most stunning cards!

Make sure to keep hopping until you get back here so you’ve seen everyone.

One of the ‘wow’ moments of the Gold Coast convention for me was seeing the Layered Letters Alphabet stamp set used during one of the on stage presentations.

I must admit, if I’d just seen this in a catalogue, I wouldn’t have given it a second thought.  But, as with lots of SU! products, once you’ve seen them in real life, they are hard to resist.

You might have noticed that I love fonts and lettering.  I’m frequently downloading new ones to use on cards & custom made stationary.  So, it was easy to fall in love with this contemporary typography!

In addition to the 26 alphabet letters, you also get 6 special characters and 2 shapes which gives you endless design options!

Here’s what I came up with:

I had so much fun making these.  I love the bold simplicity of the font!  It lends itself to so many occasions and project types.

And … because the set is photopolymer – you can see exactly where you are placing the letters.  All of these cards were stamped by sight – not a stamp-a-ma-jig in sight!

Next stop for some more tempting teasers is Nicole Wilson – another WA demo who is not only a fabulous crafter but a wonderful person too.   It’s fabulous to be part of the SU! family.  Kelly x
