Stamp Review Crew | Truly Tailored

With 5 Mondays in April, it’s time for a bonus hop!

The Stamp Review Crew are hopping today with lots of wonderful creations featuring the Truly Tailored stamp set.

This stamp set coordinates with the Tailored Tag Punch, True Gentleman DSP, Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon and True Gentleman Buttons.  We’ll be seeing the tag punch & buttons in the new catalogue, but the rest has made an appearance on the retirement list.  I expect this suite will sell out fast!!!

Don’t forget that our Father’s Day is at a completely different time of the year to the US Father’s Day, which means we don’t usually end up with a good offering of masculine / Father’s Day specific sets by September.  It’s time to plan ahead with your DSP & stamp choices!!!


For this hop I used my favourite page of the True Gentleman DSP – the glasses.  The stamp set has a matching sentiment for a funky & stylish card!

I also love the reverse side of this paper – why do they do that to me???

While I had this paper on my desk, I thought I’d make a more involved card by matching it with glasses from the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set

It required some fussy cutting to get the glasses – but worth it for this fun card!  What a perfect sentiment to from the Truly Tailored stamp set!

You really can’t beat the easy coordination of buying products from a suite put together by the Stampin’ Up! artists.

There’s lots of new suites to look forward to in the new catalogue!

But make sure you don’t miss out on any of your retiring favourites!

Next stop for some more ‘tailor’ made fun is my super stylish friend Lou Kitzelman!

Stamp Review Crew | Bubble Over

Welcome to another Stamp Review Crew Hop.

Today this wonderful group of international demonstrators is sharing ideas using the Bubble Over stamp set – and coordinating Bottles & Bubbles Framelits.

This bundle is currently available in the Occasions Catalogue, but I’m pleased to be able to let you know that Stampin’ Up! has shared a list of some of the items we’ll see in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue – and Bubble Over is one of them!!!

So, enjoy today’s hop with lots of ideas you’ll be able to use for the next 15 months!!

My first card uses the stamp set together with the Truly Tailored stamp set & coordinating Tailored Tag punch.  You’ll also spy the Bubbles & Fizz DSP which is available until the end of the month as a Sale-A-Bration item (free with $90 purchase).

My second card is a completely different style.  Instead of bubbles from drinks, I wanted a card with the type of bubbles that kids blow!  The small girl framelit from the Birthday Friends set was perfect in black to create a silhouette of a girl blowing colourful bubbles.

You’re a Star 

Birthday Bubbles

True Gentleman

I always look forward to the masculine theme suite that is released in the Occasions Catalogue.  Last year we played with tools in the Nailed It Suite.

This year it’s all bow ties, combed hair and smart spectacles for the True Gentleman Suite.  Time to create a whole range of ‘dapper’ cards.

Using a whole product suite really makes it easy to whip up designer cards!

Here’s the full range of True Gentleman products…

The coordinating colours are Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Night of Navy, Tranquil Tide & Very Vanilla.


Here’s a couple of cards I’ve made using the products…

The first card uses the punch & DSP to create a tiled background – isn’t it a great shape!!

True Gentleman | kelly kent

You can nudge the punched shapes up against each other, or if you prefer, leave a gap like I did so the card base colour comes through too.

True Gentleman | kelly kent

There’s so many options within my existing craft stash that coordinate with this suite including the Burlap Ribbon & Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon in Night of Navy..


The second card I’m sharing for today uses the “have a dapper day” stamp from the Truly Tailored stamp set.   I added the ‘birthday’ from the Birthday Wit stamp set – it coordinates so well!!

How awesome is that plaid DSP??

And you’ve got to love the embellishments from this suite – Corduroy Ribbon & True Gentleman wood buttons!

Make sure to order these supplies before May, ready for our Father’s Day in September.  The seasonal offerings don’t line up with the US for Father’s Day, so you’ll need to plan ahead!

Shop 24-7 in my online store.

To see products in action, see the colours and feel the quality, book an in-home workshop.  I can travel anywhere within the greater Bunbury area.

I’d love to craft with you & your friends!

The Hair Raising Birthday Adventures of Mr Papercraft

Today we celebrate Mr Papercraft’s birthday!

I bought the Dad Jokes stamp set from the Occasions catalogue with great glee because he loves his groan worthy and stereotypical Dad jokes.

And I love stamp sets!

“Hi Hungry, I’m Dad” is on high rotation around here.

But, with the recently hair raising adventures of Mr Papercraft, his birthday card took an ironic (suggestive) turn…

Dad Jokes | kelly kent

Mr P is growing out his hair to transform it into a mullet.  I keep hoping he’s teasing me, but the hair keeps growing.  Here’s a light hearted male model progress photo from Christmas Day….

It seemed like more fun to add a hair pun to the card.  I’ll save the other sentiments for later in the year.

Dad Jokes | kelly kent

TIP: If you’re planning your purchasing & stamps for the year, make sure to buy any of the Father’s Day sets you love to your order before May.  Father’s Day in the US is in June, so these sets rarely continue to be available for our Father’s Day in September.

I’ve mixed in products from the True Gentleman Suite.  I always love the suggestions & coordination Stampin’ Up! provide in their product suites.

Love, love, love the colours & styling of the Truly Tailored stamp set (I’ve masked out the middle of one of the stamps & used the border to frame the scissors), Tailored Tag Punch & True Gentleman DSP.

Dad Jokes | kelly kent

I added the “Happy Birthday, Dad” sentiment to the middle with more pretty paper & burlap ribbon….

Dad Jokes | kelly kent

Happy Birthday to the wonderful man that we are lucky enough to call “Dad”!

When you find him, send him here.  Just kidding!!!

Love you Daddy Papercraft, from the Little Miss Papercrafts xxx
