Here is a bright card to brighten up our dull, cold adelaide weather! The patterned paper is American Crafts amy tangerine Sketchbook, and the cardstock is stampin Up crumbcake. The banner across the top is die cut with spellbinders lacey pennant die, and I also used Stampin Up Blossom Party die for the flowers.The sentiment is stamped with stampin Up perfectly penned stamp. I had a thoroughly enjoyable day at the craft fair today, took my Mum with me to help out, and I had to stop her from spending all the profits at the other stalls – I hardly saw her all day!Tomorrow Kay ( my sister) is coming to give me a hand- I just hope I see more of her than I did of Mum! Til tomorrow….

Last night found me playing with Pink Paisley London Market 6 x6 collage pack, and matching ephemera pack, which I have had for a little while, but have been too busy to open . I couldn’t resist showing this one this week as it’s perfect timing, what with the Queens Diamond jubilee celebrations so I have interupted my male cards series and we will get back to them tomorrow. The only other products on this card are – Stampin Up perfectly Penned stamp set and stampin up bakers twine.Tomorrow will be a very early post as I will be setting up my stall for the craft fair later in the afternoon. Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Magnolia grove number 2… Again I have used the 12 x 12 papers, and the matching collectables. The sentiment is Stampin Up perfectly penned ( love that stamp) and in the top corner I have done a little arrangement with one of my hand crocheted doilies ( still learning – don’t look too closely) , ribbon, and prima flower and prima petals pin – these were new in my local craft shop the other day and I couldn’t resist them….

This is the other card I made when I rediscovered my Echo Park Victoria gardens paper. The flags are die cut with Spellbinders Lacey Pennants die, and I just gathered a few flowers into a little bunch and tied a ribbon around them the sentiment is stamped with a stamp from Stampin Up perfectly penned set, and that was all that was needed on this one! Til tomorrow….

This is the other card I made with my new Stampin Up Elegant Bird die. I cut this one out of an old cornflakes box, as I wanted a strong base for the crackle paint which I painted over the whole of the bird and wing and left over night to dry. It doesn’t show too well in the photo, but as the paint dries you get a lovely crackled effect.The background paper is from Stampin Up Twitterpated range, and I ran some pink Bazzil through the cuttlebug with my Craft Conceptes cottage floral embossing folder. I just had to add some lace, ribbon, Magnolia chandelier garland, and a strip of kaisercraft pearls.Had a lovely morning with my ladies,then this afternoon a short time in the craft room where I have been working with Kaisercrafts new release, but I am afraid my mind rebelled, and I found myself packing away the muted tones and digging out my brightest ribbons and buttons and papers to come up with some very bright and sunny cards, which we will photo next week when I am on Holiday ( Yay…) Til tomorrow….

I fell in love with this Stampin Up Elegant Bird die, although i didn’t realise it would cut such a large bird – all the same he’s a beauty! On this card I used Stampin Up Twitterpated designer paper, bazzil and stampin up cardstock – basic Grey, a My Minds eye brad, button and ribbon. I ran the body of the bird through the cuttlebug with my trusty swiss dots folder – the first embossing folder I ever bought and still the one I reach for most.No Cards tonight as it’s shopping night and I have to get my gear together for my Paper Flourish class tomorrow – I am looking forward to seeing all my ladies. Til tomorrow….

Made a bit of a blue tonight in the naming of my post – I discovered I still had some more American Crafts Neapolitan collection cards left to I have posted the whole lot , so tonight you get 7 cards! I won’t list all my ingredients – if there is anything you want to know just drop me a line – I love hearing from you all! I have used Assorted Stampin Up cardstock, ribbons, flowers, bling, dies and punches. I spent some time last night in the craft room playing with my new Stampin Up goodies, and I have a new favourite colour combination – pale pink and deep grey – try it – it’s very posh!I am shopping early tonight so that I can get back into the room and plan some lessons, I think that colour combo will feature!

Up to number 6 in our sketch series for scraps. For this one I cut 5 2cm strips in descending lengths and cut a V into the ends. A border strip, seam binding and a tattered floral die cut ( sizzix) and pearl brad finishes this simple card. The paper collection is stampin Up everyday enchantment. The second card follows the sketch closely, but uses bought flowers instead of the die cut, and I stamped a sentiment in the corner.The paper collection is american Crafts Neapolitan, and the cardstock is blushing bride.Looking forward to an evening in the card room, Til tomorrow…

Here is another card made using the new Prima Nature Garden papers, on this one I have created a little triangular pocket and slipped a tag inside which has my greeting on it – you could pop a gift voucher in here too. I heat embossed a flower and butterfly on vellum, fussy cut a little bird from the papers, and added Prima flowers and leaves, seam binding, and a Stampin Up brad to finish. I have spent a couple of hours in the craft room today, playing with more new papers, but I really must get back to using up some more older papers – next on my list… Til tomorrow…..
