I made this card for my Aunt's Birthday and it is now safely on it's way to her. I must admit I really like the way this one turned out. And I was able to use a bit of 'Bling' from my stash of odds and ends for the Buckle. The second photo show the insert which reads 'Someone like you should be celebrated every day!' If you would like any details about this card please feel free to get in contact.

A cute Easter card...

How sweet is this little card. I received it from one of my downlines, Leah, for Easter. Such a lovely surprise in the mail. She has used the 'Bunny Hugs' stamp set which is only available until the end of the month along with the rest of the Summer mini catty products.

I have also received my New 2008/2009 Idea book and Catalogues. So if you had one pre- ordered then it will be in your hot little hands very soon. If you haven't pre-ordered then there is still time and you will be amongst the first in Australia to see all the gorgeous new goodies we are getting!

A very Happy Easter to everyone!!

Just a quick one, I hope you all have a wonderful few days with your Families and Friends this Easter. Even if the rain has come out to play ( today looks a bit miserable outside).
I made this quick candle for Easter using the Bunny Hugs stamp set from the current mini which is still available till the end of the month. I think it's very cute if I do say so myself! What are you doing this Easter??

Happy Birthday to my Hubby!!

It's Hubby's birthday today so I spent some time with my beautiful girl making this card for her daddy. Ok so she ended up getting into all my ribbons instead but the idea was good to begin with. I used the stamps from one of the Sale-A-Bration sets called 'birthday whimsy' which is sadly no longer available but it came together quite easily.
I dont know about you but I often struggle with masculine cards. I've also used some soft subtle brads and the wide Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon. Colours used are Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa and Almost Amethyst.

One Sheet Wonder Technique...

I made these on Saturday while I had some child free time in the morning. It is such a great way to get started on a stack of cards, all ready just for a sentiment to be stamped on where appropriate. To get you started all you need to do is stamp an A4 sheet of neutral cardstock randomly ( Again I've used Mixed Bouquet) then chop it all up in varying sizes to use how you choose on your card base. To help with ideas there are even templates on Splitcoaststampers!!
The colours I've used are: Regal Rose, Always Artichoke, Rose Red, So Saffron and Confetti White. You can tell I love the Rich Regals!! The only other embellishment used was some silver brads, Stampin' Dimensionals and paper peircing with the mat pack.
If you would like any more info about the One Sheet Wonder or would like to purchase any of these products then please feel free to contact me.

Another crayon resist card...

I'm trying to get the most use out of this stamp set (mixed bouquet) as even though I've not had it long, it is sadly on the retired list. And it really works for this technique. I made this card while showing one of my downlines the technique and although it's not perfect, I still like it!
If you would like to learn this technique at your workshop then all you have to do is contact me to find out how.
