Stampin' Up! Windmill Fields Dies

Hello my crafty friends and welcome to my blog.

Not too long after I moved to the UK, back in 2000, I went on a European trip with my cousin. We visited France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria and Netherlands. This was my first big taste of Europe and we loved it. So when I saw this die, it reminded me of my trip.

I know that white on white is not easy to see, but it looks like I was able to capture the windmill, enough that you can see it. I didn't want to do a neutral colour as I wanted it to be bold, fun and non-traditional. So, here we are. A pink and white windmill. I also used the Splatter 3D embossing Folder in the background with 2021-2023 In Colour Jewels in Polished Pink.


Here you can see I have raised the Magenta Madness layers using my favourite foam adhesive sheets. Now, you can certainly use dimensionals, but I prefer the foam adhesive sheets as I can cut them into thin or thick strips. I did use dimensionals to raise the windmill. When die cutting the windmill, your your brush tip with the foam and those pesky little bit, will remove easily, but check the back of the cardstock to make sure the die has cut all the way through. If it hasn't, run it through again. You shouldn't need to do this but it is best to check before removing the die from the cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Cactus Cuties

Hello my crafty friends and welcome to my blog.

I couldn't help myself, I made another card using the Cactus Cuties stamp set. It is just so damn cute.


This is the other cactus in the set. I stamped the plant in Evening Evergreen ink and the pot and flowers in Calypso Coral ink. The DSP is from the Sale-A-Bration brochure called, Sunshine & Rainbows. It is FREE for every $90 you spend in my online store. I like how all the colours work well together. I then die cut the circles using the Layering Circles Dies in Basic White and Evening Evergreen cardstock. And the linen thread is a double bow. It has been sitting on my desk for a while, just waiting for the right project. It found it! 😆


I used my paper snips to cut the triangle out of each end of the Basic White layer. Because I had stamped the pot in Calypso Coral, I added the same colour strip behind for an extra splash of colour. The circle layer is raised using dimensionals and the linen thread is adhered using a mini glue dot.

Stampin' Up! Cactus Cuties

Hello my crafty friends and welcome to my blog.

Oooops, I accidently posted this yesterday. It was meant go go out today! Too many dates going around in my head.

If you didn't know, I love any cactus plants. I have one sitting on my desk. So when I saw the Cactus Cuties in the J-J Mini Catalogue, I knew I had to have it. They reminded me of the Cactus you see in kids cartoon shows. My youngest three still love to watch cartoons!

I had soooo much fun with this Cactus. It just kept growing. 😆 It is a build your own Cactus. You can make it as small or as big as you like! I started with Old Olive ink for the plant and Cinnamon Cider for the pot. I really, really love the Striped 3D Embossing Folder and added that behind the Cactus. You may have missed the embossing folders in the J-J Mini Catalogue as they are kind of hidden on page 55. Go check them out.

I used the Banner Pick A Punch for the sentiment and raised it using dimensionals. The rest of the layers are adhered directly to the card base. Feel free to raise any layers you like.

Card Measurements: Imperial
Base card - Basic White = 4 1/4" x 11" (score @ 5 1/2")
Layer 1 - Old Olive = 3 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Layer 2 - Basic White = 3 1/8" x 5 1/8"
Old Olive scrap: sentiment

Card Measurements: Metric
Base card - Basic White = 10.5cm x 29cm (score @ 14.5cm)
Layer 1 - Old Olive = 8.3cm x 14.4cm
Layer 2 - Basic White = 8cm x 14.1cm
