Here are some cards made using new stamps and in-colours.                                                                                                         


 The beer image is from the “Cheers to you” stamp set and I’ve coloured it with markers and aqua painters. Please forgive my colouring outside the lines! I also used some “Good morning sunshine” DSP for these samples. The base card is Summer Sun layered with Chocolate Chip and the DSP. The scallop around the beer is Pacific Point, which was the same colour I used to ink up the “cheers to you” sentiment.

The second card is very similar but I used a base card of kiwi kiss layered with Summer Sun and the DSP.

I will have more samples to show you over the next few days, as well as 2 very exciting special offers for the month of May, so stay tuned!


A christening card April 16, 2009

Hi again… 3 posts in one day, I’m on a roll!


Here is a Christening card I made for a special little boy in our life- little Fletcher who you can see if you scroll back a ew posts. I got the idea for this card from a card on Sarah Klass’ blog. To get the cross image firstly I  made up a reverse mask by cutting a cross out of a piece of cardstock using my paper cutter. I positioned the mask over the vanilla cardstock, and then I rolled the so swirly wheel over it in certainly celery, and being careful not to move the mask, I sponged it with bashful blue ink, leaving behind the cross image. I jazzed it up with a bit of dazzling diamonds by going over the swirls with the 2-way glue pen, and sprinkling the glitter over the top, then dusting off the excess. The sentiment is “best wishes” from the short and sweet set punched out the oval punch. I also wheeled so swirly all over the base card, and used some certainly celery ribbon, another ribbon from my pre-stampin up stash and some hodgepodge. I’m quite happy with the end result.


Elite Challenge SC20

I thought I’d play along with the sketch challenge on the Elite Stampers website. This is my creation:


I have to say this is my favourite colour combo at the moment… chocolate chip, pumpkin pie and rose red. Stamps used were baroque motifs and wonderful favourites. I had some of the square chocolate chip envelopes left over from the carousel notes pack, and needed to make a wedding card for a workmate which is big enough for all of us to sign. And hence this little beauty was born. Being a wedding card, I wanted to add a bit of bling, so I’ve clear embossed the swirly image. I also stamped and clear embossed the flower image onto rose red cardstock, and punched out with the scallop punch. I then layered this onto a pumpkin pie die-cut flower that I paper-pierced around the edges. I secured the two together with a fancy lil silver brad from the hodgepodge hardware. It’s hard to see in the photo, but the brad has a flower image on it, with a flat part in the centre, so I blinged it up with a few drops of crystal effects and sprinkled dazzling diamonds over it while it was still wet. I adhered the flower to the card with a stampin dimensional to pop it up a bit. Add some  ribbon, the sentiment and the scallop edge and voila! I love this card. I think it’s very pretty, even if I do say so myself. Please tell me what you think…
