Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights September Sympathy Theme


Hello Welcome to the Kylie's August International blog highlight. My name is Donna Gray I come from a small suburb called Goonellabah which is situated in The Northern Rivers area of New South Wales in Australia. This is my second time blog highlighting with the international blog hopper's so I am so excited I was lucky enough on my first time being named in the top 10 so I am happy to be joining this blog highlight again. I hope you all like what I have made.
The Theme for this highlight was a Sympathy Card which is not an easy card to make but the thought of how a card like this can offer comfort for someone who is going through such a sad time in their lives losing a loved one helps you create such a card.
My go to stamp set had to be the Tranquil Tulips Hostess Stamp set to create this card as they are such beautiful flowers to make an elegant card I try to keep Sympathy cards quite simple but elegant at the same time.

This is the front of my Sympathy card as you can see the tulips definately give that elegant look to the card I have I chose calypso coral for the colours with a hint of emerald envy as a layer just to add a little more colour with out it being too bold I then finished it off with a very vanilla ribbon & some of our Rhinestone basic Jewels 
The sentiment was from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp set .
Inside I decided just one tulip was enough and a beautiful heartfelt sentiment from the Thoughts & Prayers Stamp set.

Thank you all for stopping in at my blog if you really like my Sympathy Card please vote for my by clicking the voting button above Also if you don't want to miss any of my blog posts please put your email in the box up at the top right hand corner to subscribe to my blog

If you want to cut out your stamped images or want to texture emboss your layers on your cards this is the machine for you. I have owned a big shot machine for about 8 years now It was one of my first craft items I purchased as I am not fussed on fussy cutting my stamped images out.
I use my big shot everyday when I craft to cut shapes Detailed thinlets & to texture emboss when I make my cards In the last 8 years I would not like to imagine how many times this machine has cut things out & embossed but it is till going strong so for the initial outlay it has definitely paid for itself over & over again.
For the month of September 2017 if you purchase a 
I will personally send you The Happy Birthday Thinlet FREE!!!!!
that is a $35 value of product that I will send out to you through the post if you use my September 2017 host Code 437RE77V

Stampin Up!®Demonstrator Donna Gray Using The Beachy Little Christmas Stamp

Beachy Little Christmas Stamp is Perfect for the Aussie Xmas!!

Hi Welcome to my blog I am Donna Gray & I am a 
Stampin Up!®Demonstrator from the Northern Rivers In New South Wales Australia 
I love Christmas & I think it is the most exciting time to make cards as they are all so beautiful. I was asked quite often last year at the markets where I sell my hand made cards if I had some Christmas Cards that were more Aussie themed eg Kangaroos Koala's or the beach. Well you can imagine my excitement when I layed my eyes on The Beachy Little Christmas Stamp Set. 
I created this card using some sponging techniques for the background.

I made the base from our Bermuda bay Card stock Then layered with a layer of Melon Mambo Card Stock. Then on the Whisper White piece of card stock I cut a piece of copy paper to the shape of the sand dunes & sponged with Crumb Cake Ink I also sponged a circle up the top of the layer to look like a sun. For the water & sky I used Marina Mist Ink Pad & Soft Sky Ink Pad for the sky.
I Heat embossed the Beachy Christmas Tree & the Beach hut using VersaMark Ink Pad  & Silver embossing Powder I then used my Aqua Painters & Ink Pads to colour my images.
To finish off the front I stamped the sentiment with Early Espresso Ink Pad.
I have made a video tutorial for this card if you would like to 

Items used to make this card
Sponge Daubers

Stampin Up!® Demonstrator Donna Gray Using The Snowflakes Sentiments Bundle

Snowflakes Sentiments Bundle 

I don't know about you but although I live in Australia when I think of Christmas and making cards the first thing that pops into my mind is snowflakes & snowmen 
I know we don't have snow at Christmas in Australia but one day I hope I will get a chance to be somewhere that I can enjoy a white christmas.
With these thoughts in mind I was inspired to make this lovely snowflake Christmas card.

This Snowflake Sentiments Bundle can be found in my Online Store as well as all the items used in this card. I chose to use the Night of navy card stock & our silver foil sheets to make this card. If you would like to purchase any of these items during the month of September 2017 & you use my host code 437RE77V I will send you one of my hand made cards as a thank you crafted by me for you!!!
The thinlet set has a lovely border that makes a beautiful decorative edge on the card that created a lovely backdrop for the delicate snowflakes which shows of the snowflakes with the colour contrast so well.
I used the new Every day Label Punch to create the sentiment label. I pinched out 2 in the silver foil card to create the background label to compliment the whisper white label
                                                    
                                                        
For the inside of the card I used the night of Navy Ink Pad to stamp the sentiment & I finished of with some snowflakes stamped with the Basic Gray Ink Pad
If you would like to see a video tutorial for this card

Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop Teachers Present Theme


Welcome to my blog My name is Donna Gray & I live in a small country town in the Northern Rivers area of NSW Australia.
In August I participated in Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights event 

Theme was a teachers Gift so I made a male themed Desk Calendar & organizer with a draw that held a pad of sticky notes You may remember seeing my blog & voting for me 

To my surprise I was voted number 2 winner out of the top ten I was totally shocked as this was my first time entering a project & to receive 2nd place was mind blowing.

If you didn't see my Teacher's Gift project I have included a photo to the left or if you do remember it & you voted for me I would love to just say thank you so much for your vote Winning a place in the top 10 gave us a VIP invitation to blog hop with the Kylie Bertucci The Number 1 Stampin Up! Demonstrator in Australia & the other 9 lucky winners. So I decided I would still stick to the same project as I did in the last blog post & as I said the original idea I got from
The Crafty Spark so designing rights go to Lea Denton her Link To the You Tube Tutorial From The Crafty Spark 


I decided to make a female Desk organizer with a calendar to show you how different it looks.

I used the very popular Daisy Delight Bundle I made my own DSP with the daisy stamp using Elegant Eggplant Ink
Sweet Sugar Plum Ink Pad.
I stamped the middle of the Daisy with Crumb Cake Ink Pad. The base was made using our Elegant Eggplant Card Stock 


This would be a lovely gift for any Teacher. The draw for the sticky notes is a nice touch for them to write down all those important things they need to remember. I have used the Daisy on the top of the organizer with one of our Gold Faceted Gems to hold the easel with the yearly calendar & also used another of the gold faceted gems to make the handle for the draw.
I hope you have enjoyed this blog hop Thank you for goung on this hop with these talented crafters
