For the exhibition I redesigned my post it note holders using the 2013-15 in colors with papillion potpourri. Also with the new in colors I made some cards with the flowering flourishes stamp set. I am really liking the new in colors.

Happy Birthday Wishes for Seize The Birthday Challenge

Well I made these a little while ago. I made the 3D object about a month ago because my friends birthday was September 10. I was in hospital that week and we were supposed to have a lunch the weekend I got discharged, however she is still extremely unwell. I made a matching card to go with it. I really enjoyed making this for my friend Norma. I am hoping that she feels better soon.

I bought the letter 'N' a few months ago. I think I bought it in a gift store in Chadstone. I traced the 'N' onto Gingham garden DSP and then cut it out. I then applied a layer of mod podge, stuck down the DSP and then applied another coat of mod podge. I then cut out the letters with my bigshot using silver glimmer, to add the color I sponged it with daffodil delight and melon mambo with sponge daubers. My fingers ended up quite messy after it.

The card is made using a whisper white base, with matching Gingham garden DSP as the card front. I then stamped the sentiment and numbers with memorable moments stamp set in daffodil delight and melon mambo. I then cut it out with the labels collection framelits with the bigshot.


Freshly Made Sketches #104 & Less is More: Get Well Soon

Another sketch card entry. I have a few friends who haven't been feeling well and I thought that this challenge would be helpful because I find it hard to make get well soon (and sympathy) cards.

I saw the sketch for this card at Freshly Made Sketches I also thought I could combine with Less is More card theme of Get Well Soon.

To create the card I first cut the banner using very vanilla cardstock and used a square punch to create the flag. I then stamped the bandaid from the patterned occasions stamp set (retired) using strawberry slush and cut it out. The sentiment I used is from teeny tiny sentiments and stamped in coastal cabana. The card base is coastal cabana, I then cut a piece of the birthday basics designer series paper. I adhered it to the base with snail tape. The banner is popped up with dimensionals. I decided to add some rhinestones for embellishment. This is my first card using the new 2013-15 in color inks and cardstock, I also used my color coach to help me with color combinations. So please tell me what you think.

Stamps: Patterned occasions (retired), teeny tiny sentiments

Washi Christmas Card Sunny Challenges Entry

Hello everyone, I have decided to start entering into card sketch challenges. This is the first one that I have entered. This fortnight's challenge from Sunny Challenges & Creations was to create a card using Stampin' Up!'s Washi tape.  Washi tape is everywhere at the moment. It has so many different uses and is really easy to apply it sticks to everything, I just love it.  I haven't used the Christmas Washi tape yet so decided to do a Christmas Card.  I started by cutting the tree trunk out of chocolate chip cardstock. I then applied the washi tape in strips to create the tree. I then cut out a pot plant shape in olive green cardstock and punched out a small star out of the silver glimmer paper. For the sentiment I used merry christmas from the teeny tiny sentiment set and stamped it in real red ink. Hope you like this card as much as I enjoyed making it.

Ink: Real red
Hope you have a great weekend

Stampin' Up! Swallowtail - Chalkboard Technique

I am really loving this stamp set, ever since I saw it in the seasonal catalogue its becoming one of my favourites. I have been wanting to try out the chalkboard technique for a while and thought this would be a good time, I needed a nice thank you card to send to an overseas friend.

There are a few ways to do this technique, I rubbed my embossing buddy over the black cardstock to give it that dusted look and then heat embossing the stamped image with white embossing powder. The sentiment is from the Short and Sweet stamp set (retired).

French foliage (One sheet wonder)

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend last Saturday’s Boneo market, which we were all ready for however I was unwell. So I have been playing around with One Sheet Wonder where you take one sheet of A4 paper or DSP 12x12 (designer series paper), cut it in a number of pieces and then making several cards with it. I decided to try it out with using French foliage. I stamped an A4 sheet using old olive, real red, pumpkin pie and chocolate chip ink. I then cut the A4 sheet into 9 pieces and then made it into 9 cards using crumb cake cardstock.

Supplies used:
Inks: Black stazon, chocolate chip, old olive, pumpkin pie and real red.
Cardstock: Chocolate chip, crumb cake, old olive, pumpkin pie, real red.
Stamp sets: French foliage, sincere salutations.
Tools: Oval circle punch, scallop circle punch
Accessories: Linen thread.

For the rest of the week I will be making more cards and gifts to expand my supplies for this upcoming Saturday's Tootgarook market. I am really looking forward to it. Starting this month our stall is now situated next to the coffee vendor. Come on down to check out my stall, maybe purchase a card or gift, or just to say hi, or to attend a class or workshop.

Hope everyone had a good weekend.
Happy Stamping.
