Balloon Adventures Bundle - Occasions Catalogue 2017

Shaker Card


I needed to make a card for my sister's birthday and she had mentioned that she loved the shaker card I made her for Christmas.  She didn't want to put it away as she enjoyed shaking it so much... so, it was a no brainer that I needed to make another shaker card for her.

Straight away I thought of the Balloon Adventures Bundle with that awesome Balloon Pop Up Thinlit.  It turned out better than expected and the Thinlits made it so very easy.  Again I matched the colours to the Designer Series Paper that is part of the Party Animal Suite - the colours being Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy, Pacific Point, Whisper White and Tangerine Tango.


Very happy with the result, and I know my sister will love it!

Lift Me Up Bundle

I made 3 cards today all using the Lift Me Up Bundle from the Occasions 2017 Catalogue.  This set is so awesome and I know it is going to be one of my favourites.  Making the cards was super easy.  The Lift Me Up bundle comes with the Lift Me Up Stamp Set and the Up & Away Thinlits Dies.  My designs were based around the colours that come with the "Carried Away" Designer Series Paper that you can earn for free in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.  These are Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Smoky Slate and Night of Navy.

Card 1


I die cut the large hot air balloon and then used sponge daubers with the ink pads to get the coloured look on the outside.  I then put it over the top of some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Cardstock.  The sparkle is amazing.   The other 2 hot air balloons are stamped and die cut, same as the clouds.  The  colours used for this card were Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Mint Macaron & Smoky Slate. A few embellishments on the balloons - rhinestones & pearls. 

Product List
Stamps - Lift Me Up Stamp Set
Dies - Up & Away Thinlits Dies (Part of Bundle Set)
Cardstock - Whisper White, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.
Inks - Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, Smoky Slate.
Other - Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, Precision Base Plate, Mint Macaron Stampin Write Marker, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Pearl Basic Jewels.

Card 2


Again, all die cuts used to assemble this card.  The large hot air balloon was die cut with Whisper White cardstock, nice and easily with the precision plate on the big shot machine.  The background of this balloon was made using some of the other dies in the set that go together to produce the stripey background.  Popped up on stampin dimensionals and all put together on a Mint Macaron background.  Very easy, but very effective card.

Product List
Stamps - Lift Me Up Stamp Set
Dies - Up & Away Thinlits Dies (Part of Bundle Set)
Cardstock - Whisper White, Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, Night of Navy, Smoky Slate.
Inks - Watermelon Wonder, Smoky Slate & Night of Navy.

Card 3


I saw a version of this card as part of the Global Design Project Challenge by Kylie Bertucci and loved how it looked.  This is my version.  Thanks Kylie :)

It is a monochrome card all using whisper white and Night of Navy.  The Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration is absolutely gorgeous and creates the perfect background for this card.

Hello & Welcome



Welcome to Stamp Haven.


Be warned - I am a stampaholic!  Or I should say a craftaholic.  I love everything craft.  Over the years I have used many different products until I stumbled across the Stampin' Up! products.  I became hooked...

Stampin' Up! have so many wonderful products and their design team put together an amazing arrangement of goodies that all co-ordinate together.  There are stamps, inks, dies, tools, ribbons, washi tape, paper, embellishments, embossing folders, punches and the list goes on.  Take a look at the catalogues on the side bar and you will be amazed at the variety of product and the excellent price point.

Last year I made all my christmas cards in no time at all and everyone was amazed at the quality.  Here are a few examples of what can easily be made.
