Embossing folders


IMG_8489 (Medium) IMG_8490 (Medium)These cards came about because I wanted to use the new stampin up cardstock – blackberry bliss and lost lagoon on a card together as I liked the way the colours worked. I also had some very slim embossing folders, probably meant to be used as borders, but here I cut thin white card strips and embossed a different pattern on each one. embellishing with ribon, flowers and buttons followed. I liked the look so much I tried the same sketch but with a christmas theme.Curly Cute stampin up greeting stamps finished all cards . Quick post today as I must get off to work.. til tomorrow…..

3 cards with stampin up Flashback designer paper


IMG_5490 (Medium)IMG_5491 (Medium)IMG_5494 (Medium)The one thing these cards have in common is the designer paper – Stampin Up Flashback.for the first one I followed the pattern and cut my paper in half, stamping the greeting in between the two pieces, ( stampin up Sassy salutions greeting stamp) and addind a splodge of colour with red ink and Stampin up gorgeous grunge. The second one makes good use of my stampin up Honeycomb hello stamp set,and I cut some banners from the paper. the third card was an experiment using up the bits of paper leftover from the other two cards, punched hexagons, stuck them on the cardstock and ran it through the big shot with my stampin up hexagon embossing folder. Today is my new day off, so have done the weekly shop and I am off to have a well needed hair cut! Til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 by the sea


IMG_5482 (Medium)A quick post before I leave for work this morning.. Graphic 45 By the sea paper collection with lots of fussy cutting and layering. The cardstock is stamping up, and that’s all the products I used on this one. Love this range but haven’t had the time to really create with it yet, too busy with christmas cards! til tomorrow…..

Another stamped and watercoloured….


IMG_5479 (Medium)This one isn’t as dark in real life – the blue of the card and die cut oval ( spellbinders floral oval) is a denim blue… not sure what happened there nathan the photographer must have been having a bad day! Again the stamped image is from a freebie stamp set on the front of a magazine, and I watercoloured it with Tim holtz distrss markers and an aqua brush.leaves are punched with a martha stewart punch and the flowers are mini flowers by Kaisercraft. The patterned paper of the background is forget-me-not by kaisercraft.this weekend has been spent finishing off my October lessons, and making some vintage christmas cards.I start my new department and new hours this week at work, so will have to see when I fit my blog posts in – it might be easier to do them in the mornings before work now, so we shall see what works. til tomorow…..

Stamping and watercolouring with tim holtz markers


IMG_5481 (Medium)i have been on a mission to make some little girl cards, and I found this stamp stashed away – it came off the front of a magazine, but its very good quality, and I thought it was quite cute! I coloured her with tim holtz distress markers and an aqua brush ( not confident enough to use a paint brush), and the rest of the products – spellbinders timeless rectangle die,kaisercraft paper and mini flowers, martha stewart leaf punch,and stampin up cardstock and ribbon. For those of you intersted , I have done a you-tube video testing out the new spellbinder tool for Paper Flourish ( yes I get to play with new products and let you all know what I think – best job ever!!)You can see it by going to http://www.paperflourish.com.au and clicking on the blog button! til tomorrow….

I punched the leaves from cream paper and sprayed them pink with some pink fireworks spray to give a mottled effect. til tomorrow….
