Butterfly Prettiness

Hi There! I haven’t shared in a while so thought I’d stop by and post a few cards that I’ve made recently using the Stampinup Saleabration Designer Series Paper  “Best Year Ever”.  The buttons and ribbons are also freebies as part of the promotion. I’ve been finding it very hard to find time for craftingContinue reading “Butterfly Prettiness”

I’m only a Phone Call away!

I love this sentiment – it’s just a cute way of saying “I’m here for you” isn’t it?  For today’s card I chose to colour Telephone Marci and actually used both of the sentiments that come with the Lalaland stamp. My colour Palette consists of Smokey Slate, Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and aContinue reading “I’m only a Phone Call away!”

Window to the Heart

    Hi there,   I’d like to share this project with you today – it’s one of those cards that came to me in a vision – I knew exactly what I wanted to create in terms of colour and layout and felt incredibly satisfied when it looked exactly as I had envisioned it!Continue reading “Window to the Heart”

Still Colouring!

        Wow it’s been a long time since I have created a card in Stampin’ Up’s Pacific Point! This DSP patterned paper was in my first order when I joined as a demonstrator in November 99 (OMG has it been that long?) And it is still lovely! This gorgeous character image is from LaLaContinue reading “Still Colouring!”

My First Copic Excursion with Travel Marci

Well I’ve done it! I’ve recently fallen in love with “character stamps” which of course has led me to invest in a few Copic (alcohol based)Markers to colour them in.  I am hugely anticipating Stampin’ Up!’s Blendabilities range of alcohol markers due to be released in July with the new Catalogue and will definitely beContinue reading “My First Copic Excursion with Travel Marci”

Stylin’ Girl With Sequins

      Have you ever noticed that the kids that surround us in life just keep growing? Funny that! I recently realised that the little girls having birthdays among friends and families were a little old for my current stamp designs (and another butterfly card just wasn’t going to cut it!). Enter one ofContinue reading “Stylin’ Girl With Sequins”

Burlap Happiness

    The Occasions catty featured this absolutely divine Burlap “Ribbon” (more like a tape really) and I love the effect when you mix natural with colour like the Coastal Cabana DSP in this card.  My DSP is from the Fresh Prints Paper Pack.  See my Gold Baker’s Twine on the top right of myContinue reading “Burlap Happiness”

Mother’s Day and Stampin’ Write Marker Colouring

Happy Mother’s Day to all the hardworking (office or home) Mum’s out there! I made this card below for my Mum who continues to amaze me with her generosity of spirit and time – she is always there for us when we need support or when I need a good chat 🙂 Love you Mum!Continue reading “Mother’s Day and Stampin’ Write Marker Colouring”

A Sporty Thank You

Hi there, I’m back after a fairly long hiatus with something a little Sporty for you and very different to the Christmas cards from my previous few posts! I made 5 of these cards for the coaching team for Laurenz’s State Championship Teeball Team – I printed their names and then stamped the rest.  ThisContinue reading “A Sporty Thank You”

Clear Cards for Christmas – Stamping on Acetate

I have been wanting to try clear (acetate)  cards for such a long time, and when I was recently asked to design a few “Speciality Christmas Cards” I thought this was the perfect opportunity! My first purchase was of course Stazon Ink in Cotton White, out came my acetate sheets and away I went.  IContinue reading “Clear Cards for Christmas – Stamping on Acetate”
