Friendship Blooms...

I just love freebies and this stamp set is one you can choose for free when you place an order worth $100 or more during Sale-A-Bration. To make this card I've used Regal Rose cardstock and created the scalloped bottom by using my corner punch with the guard removed.
Then layered with some Close to Cocoa cardstock and the Loves Me designer double sided paper. I've also added some paper peircing and ribbon from the Flirty Ribbon orininals Which is available from the current Mini catalogue.
If you don't already have a copy of these catty's please contact me and I will post them to you this week.

Cake boxes...

How adorable are these? I made them a while ago, photographed them and managed to show them at a few workshops before my beautiful toddler *Sat* on them. Imagine a cardstock 'Cake' towering high...

Well, I was able to salvage the ribbon at least! They are made using the 'A New Little Someone" stamp set and Pixie Pink cardstock. I have some Dazzling Diamonds on the safety pins on the box using Heat and Stick Powder and Versamark Ink. These would be great for any party as souvenirs filled with lollies or treats and small gifts.

All items used are Stampin' Up!® and are available for purchase through me at any time.

This is my take on Cass' challenge at today's get together (another benefit of being a demonstrator is the time together to stamp, create and catch up with each other!)Which was a one layer card! My layer being the wide certainly celery ribbon. I've also added some Dazzling Diamonds to the flowers using my 2-way glue pen. This was stamped in Stazon black and watercoloured with crayons and aquapainter. All of which are Stampin'Up! and available through me!

Chocolate, Chocolate everywhere and not a bit to eat!

So... one of my New Years Resolutions is to cut DOWN (notice I didn't say OUT) Chocolate consumption and lose some weight! So I have to find other ways to get my fix. Thank goodness for Stampin' Up! and 'Chocolate chip', 'close to cocoa' and 'creamy caramel' cardstocks and inks.

These latest cards I made last night. The first uses the 'Carte Postale' set from the Summer Mini catty along with the 'French Script' background stamp and my SU punches to give some definition. This was a card sketch challenge a few weeks ago from one of my favourite site's I go to for inspiration! Splitcoaststampers

And this second card uses a set called 'Long Time Friend' and the 'Wide Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon' along with some Sage Shadow thrown in for good measure. What do you think??

To begin the New Year I will be announcing a new competition so stay tuned for more details.

Happy New Year...

... and all that Jazz! Well I must admit I'm glad to see the start of a new year. Lots of positive things to look forwards to and a whole new year of exciting adventures with Stampin' Up!
This is quick card I made today while my delightful (Ahem) child was resting (not sleeping as supposed to be!)
I love chocolate chip cardstock at the moment so used an 11x21 cm folded for the base and added some of the gorgeous double sided paper 'Loves Me' with 'Big Blooms' stamp set and 'Wide Very Vanilla Ribbon' all available from the Summer Mini Catty. For a bit of glitz I added some dazzling diamonds with my 2 way glue pen. And the word 'Wonderful' from the stamp set 'Warm words'.
Don't forget with all orders over $100 from now till the end of February you can earn FREE stamp sets from the Sale-A-Bration Catty.
