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.

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…

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.

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.

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!

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!!!

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!

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!

What Will You Stamp #124 – Daisy Delight

Daisies have totally been the hit of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.

So much so, that the punch is currently on ‘unorderable’ status while the factory goes into overtime making more!

Stampin’ Up! addicts bought the entire supply of punches twice over – a whole year’s supply in less than 2 months!

What Will You Stamp is featuring the stamp set this week, so it seems like a good time to get the daisies inky again.

I chose one of the beautiful new In Colors – Berry Burst – and combined the daisy centrepiece with stamps from the Wood Words stamp set.

The floral stamp coordinates fabulously!

I’ve stamped the daisy three times in Berry Burst and then Aqua Painted using Berry Burst again – but quite diluted to get a lighter shading.

For a three layer daisy, you need to line them up in thirds.  If you try to fill the gap with the second daisy you’ll have nowhere to put the last one.

I love that the Faceted Gems fit so nicely in the middle of the daisy – it’s a great finish!

And the final flourish for my daisy was some tweaked & teased Copper Trim.

Have you tried this?  It’s double layered, so simply cut through the side of the ribbon and then pull apart!!!

Daisy Delight | kelly kent

Do you love the daisy in this colour, or are you a traditional yellow & white daisy lover???

How wonderful is ink & paper – we can create all kinds of daisies!

I’ve got an idea brewing based on a book I’m reading at the moment…. let’s see if I can make it happen!

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop – Wood Textures Suite

Hello! And welcome to blog hop #2 this afternoon.  It’s a packed schedule, but I have a shocking habit of not saying no!!!

Our Stamping Sunday team has grown, so welcome to the new members who are hopping today!

Sara has chosen the awesome Wood Textures suite today and I can’t wait to see what everyone has made!


My projects today were inspired by the gorgeous flowers Nanna Papercraft sent me on my birthday.

Birthday Tulips | kelly kent

Tulips are one of my favourite flowers!!!  When I saw the Tranquil Tulips stamp set in the new catalogue I let out a little squeal!!!

It will be available in the Annual Catalogue as a set that can be purchased with host rewards.


Project number one for this blog hop is a tulip planter box.  I love the glass vase my tulips came in – so stylish!

To recreate this, I made the Wood Crate Box made from Window Sheet.  But I slightly changed the look by  lining the inside of the crate with the white wood page from the Wood Textures DSP.

Having a close look at the tulips, I decided that Berry Burst & Wisteria Wonder would be a good match.

I added a panel across the middle of the planter box to get a fuller set of tulips.

Some sit at the back, some on the back side of the middle strip and some on the front side of the middle strip.

The box is packed with some of the brown paper we get with orders to add more texture.  There’s so many great ways to use the packing paper.

The final touch was to add a Berry Burst bow using the gorgeous new Finely Woven Ribbon.


The second project I’m sharing is a coordinating card to go with my tulip planter box.

I love the Wood Words stamp set – and I know you’re going to get a lot of use from it!

My favourite stamp in the set is the floral splatter.

It makes a great background stamp, which is how I’ve used it in this card!

The tulip posy sits on top of the floral background, with a trio of ribbons – Copper Trim, Berry Burst ribbon & Burlap ribbon.

The Copper Trim is super special – and sure to be a standout in the new catalogue.

It comes in a tight 1/4″ ribbon format – but when the tube is cut apart, it can be teased into a flat netting layer.  So beautiful!

The Hello Friend sentiment is from the Wood Words stamp set.  I do love a bit of copper embossing!!!

And that white wood DSP page – oh my!  I could use a whole pack of that without blinking!

Here’s the card and planter box together…
