Ivory Wedding Card




Hello there!
Things may be a bit sporadic the next couple of weeks on the blog circuit as we are on school holidays in this neck of the woods at the moment. :)

Here's a wedding card I made for one special gal and her to-be-husband who married over the weekend. This girl sang at our own wedding quite some time back, so it was a special card to be making!

It is actually all Very Vanilla in colour, but the photo has come out quite 'white' with a darker ribbon. But it truly is all Vanilla! :)

I've used the 'Elegant Lines' embossing folder through the Big Shot, added a few basic Pearls, a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments, and my 'cheat' Satin bow :)

More later!

A stack of cards









The last class I held we created 6 'All Occasion' Cards, meaning you can use them for almost any occasion!

The girls made 2 of each of the above...it's always terrific to see creative expression at work.

They all get the same materials and tools, but each has their own unique creations at the end of the afternoon.

We used the spritzer lots, the paper piercing tool, the Big Shot, punches, stamps and accessories.

Which is your favourite?

The 'Lock'





What do you get for the person who has everything?
A guard dog or a strong padlock!?? :)

Nooooo...you get them a Stampin' Up! Gift Certificate!

If you have a special person to give to, but unsure of the 'what'...I can send these anywhere in Australia to any value.

They are valid for 3 months from date of 'purchase' and redeemable only through myself.

So you'll no longer be stumped for gifts for that person who 'has everything'!

Shower for Baby


Here's a little card I made for a friend's baby shower recently...


This is a 'nappy cake' I made as a gift to the baby shower recipient. It has heaps of newborn nappies, washers, socks, a towel and a fluffy blanket all wrapped up in that tower, guarded by the cute little stuffed dog.

What Stampin' Up! items have I used for this you ask! None...I just wanted to show it to you :)



And THIS work of art was created by Selina,a good friend of the mum-to-be. What a fab job! She actually has her own cake creation business now...if you are interested I can give you a link!

And it was a good thing the baby shower was held when it was as bub decided to arrive early...under a week later! Good thing! :)

Drop a line to say hello if you have popped in....thanks for stopping by!

Artful Stampers Team Challenge





Here's a card I made recently for my team challenge set by my upline Alisa.

We had to fulfil 3 parts to the challenge:
1. Ink up uninked stamps
2. Use lots of layers (no Clean and Simple here! CAS)
3. Use colours Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.

This was my interpretation. I even dizzied up the inside!

Thanks for popping in...

Silouette on Polished Stone




Here's a cool technique. The 'polished stone' technique.
I've used the colours 'Rose Red' and retired 'Blush Blossom' (only because I didn't have any other reinker colours!), and it's turned out quite nice on the Glossy White against a Rose Red background.

I've inked the 'Just Believe' silouette stamp in Stazon as this is best on the Glossy Card, drying straight away.

What do you think?
Give this a go and send me a pic of your creations :)
