I had an extra person turn up unexpectedly for card class this week and didn’t know until the last-minute. So delighted this lady was able to attend, I rushed around Saturday morning to cut up kits for her to use in class. Oh No!! I had run out of Watermelon Wonder Dotted Lace Trim. So what do you do? Change to another In Color of course. So this card was made from delightful Dijon. One of the other ladies in… Read more »

This card is made with Best Thoughts which is a Hostess Set. You can order it with your Stampin’ Rewards from a qualifying party. It’s a gorgeous set with endless possibilities. Today I decided to make just a blank card and teamed it with Watermelon Wonder I’ve stamped the flower image onto the card layer and then again on some scrap. After water colouring both and allowing to dry, I cut just the flower out with my Paper Snips. I… Read more »

I know, I always say we don’t have winter at Christmas time here in Australia. However, I thought perhaps some of my market shoppers may have friends who reside in the Northern Hemisphere and who will need wintry looking cards for Christmas. There you are, that’s my reasoning for just wanting to make some wintry Christmas cards. So, I made two cards which were supposed to be the same however, they ended up a bit different. Always happens! (Happens in my… Read more »

I made 20 Thank You Note Cards with matching envelopes today. These are all for my other direct selling business Jamberry Nails.  These cards and a little gift are going in the mail to all my customers who’ve ordered from me since I started with the company on October 1st. You too can make quick and easy Note Cards using Stampin’ Up! products. I used Blackberry Bliss and Melon Mambo as they’re the two colours which most resemble Jamberry Nails…. Read more »

This is a traditional 12″ x 12″ page, however is mixed in with some project Life pages of my daughter’s trip to the USA with the State Schools Symphonic Wind Ensemble. This photo was taken at Sea World I wanted to highlight some of the colours in the photo. In the plant at the back of the photo is a beautiful pink flower, hence the use of Melon Mambo…. Read more »

Here’s the Project Life page I promised you. My daughter was in the State Schools Symphonic Wind Ensemble (SSSWE)when she was in High School. When she was in Year 12, as well as doing her Higher School Certificate and being a very active member SSSWE, she also did a lot of fundraising so she could accompany the Ensemble to the USA for a tour where they played at schools and colleges as well as at Disneyland. memories she’ll never forget. The… Read more »

This one is all Stampin’ Up!. I’ve used Whisper White card to print the graphics needed for the page and then cut around them. They’re mounted with Dimensionals to give the page some depth. I’ve used the Hearts and Stars Decorative Mask for… Read more »

I must say I was inspired by Patty Bennett for this card and she has a great video tutorial on how to make a landscape version. As we don’t have snow in Australia at Christmas I decided to make this a night-time version and hence the sentiment of ‘Silent Night’. I’ve used Night of Navy, Garden Green and Versamark with Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I also had the help from a post it note for the moon and the… Read more »

So this card was a bit of a challenge as you know I’ve said before we don’t have snow in Australia at Christmas. However we may have some beautiful pine trees with sparkling dew on them? Yes? Well that’s what we tried to achieve with this card. We’ve actually stamped the trees 3 times and embossed once and then used Gorgeous Grunge to give us some beautiful gold sparkles. We also stamped the tree in two different colours on the… Read more »

This is the last of the cards from my October Card Class where the ladies concentrated on a technique. We used the Aqua Painters for all of the cards – 2 each of 3 designs. This one is just an alternate on one of the other cards they made. The image on this card was stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black and then the Aqua Painters did the work with reinkers. This time we turned the image so it was facing… Read more »
