Punch Art Blue Toad Birthday Card


There was a Mario themed party happening, and I needed a card,

The birthday boy's favourite characters were Yoshi & Blue Toad

(and as uneducated as I was on all things Mario, I had to google both! :) )


Blue Toad was decidedly a lot easier to create, so here it is!

Blue Toad, punch art version :)

Artful Stampers Blog Hop - 5 Colour Challenge




Hey there!

Hope you had a fine weekend & loving the wintery chill! 
I suppose it is Winter after all! :D



Here's my card for today's challenge - it was a colour & a sketch challenge.

I really only met the brief with the colours!
Was so enthusiastic that I forgot the sketch.

It did have a circle element though...does that count? :)

The Colours!! 




Thanks for your company 

Enjoy the rest of the hop!


Be sure to leave some comment love for the girls too :D

Product Review - Die Brush


PRODUCT REVIEW 
by Anna :)



Can't remember ever doing a product review before, but I thought I'd do one on the Die Brush  (maybe first of many???)

I'd been putting off purchasing the Die Brush as I thought I could just continue with the 'poke all the holes out with a small sharp object' method.

It's time-consuming & fiddly - especially with the more intricate thinlits.


So, I tried the Die Brush out first with the 'Rose Garden Thinlits'.

Ran it through the Big Shot on a Magnetic plate (though you could use the Precision Plate or even the Standard Platform

My Big Shot was already set up with the Magnetic Plate... & it works...so wasn't going to change it!


All cut out.
Sometimes a few pieces will fall out when you take the thinlit out of the Big Shot


Place the Die/Thinlit paper side down on the Foam Pad.

Run the Die Brush back & forth over the entire Thinlit & exposed cardstock.

Check.it.out!!

All fell out when I lifted off the Thinlit!



Goodbye 'poke it with a small sharp object' method!

Hello Die Brush!!!! :D


And the card made with the 'experimental' pieces :)

I'm convinced!!  You?! :)


Thanks for stopping in!

Rain, rain, go away...to my craft room!


What to do on a wet Sunday afternoon??

Other than sleeping, it was a no-brainer to go hide in my craft room!

Here's one of the projects - I used the 'Foxy Friends' and 'Floral Phrases' stamp sets for this card. 

Rather like the wreath!

The little flowers are from the Tree Builder Punch.



What creative things did you get up to on the weekend??

Creating en mass ....and no paper


This is a picture of my creative efforts from Friday - for a Kindy fundraising tombola on Saturday.

That's over 150 scones right there!

I found a fabulous recipe which was pretty quick in the preparation side of things:

3 cups SR Flour
1 cup Lemonade
1 cup Cream

Mix, flatten, cut scones, cook for 20-25 mins in a 200C oven.


Yum!
