Welcome card

Yesterday my nanna rang me and asked if I could make a Welcome Home card because her neice is visiting us from America. She has lived in America for over 40 years now. We are catching up with her and her husband today for afternoon tea. The whole family is going to sign the card and we will give it to her as a welcome home momento to take home. I have used the bali breeze DS papers and a little bit of happiness level 1 hostess set and so many sayings level 1 hostess set as well. I copied the mojo monday sketch that I did through the week I liked it so much. I can see me using this sketch a lot. Only a month to go and we will get all new level 1,2 & 3 hostess sets in our new catalogue. How exciting.............

Mojo Monday Challenge 75

My mum rang me today and asked that I make her a wedding card. Before I got of the phone I new that I wanted to combine this card with one of the challenges sitting on my desk. I have a few that I want to get done this weekend and this was one of them. I think deciding on my colours was the hardest thing. I guess I'm a safe kinda gal....... So I went for Soft sky and whisper white. I have used these colours before on a anniversary card so I new I would be happy with those colours. The photo looks better IRL. The congrats stands out heaps more. The congratulations is one of the current sale-a-bration items that finish tomorrow. Contact me if you still don't have all your sale-a-bration sets.

Rak from Nikki

Wow arn't I a lucky lady! I received another RAK in the post today from Nikki. This is an absolutely gorgeous card. I actually don't have this stamp set its called Brocade Basics. After receiving this card I now want to buy this stamp set. Only a couple of days left to wait to see what will be on Stampin Up's Retired List. The count down is on for the new Catalogue as well. Ohhhh this time of year is just so exciting..........

This is the sketch for Mojo Monday week 74. I missed this sketch when it was posted, I only got to play with it today. I needed a thank you card so that's what I used this sketch for. The colours are Ballet Blue, Certainly Celery & Whisper White. I have also used my cuttlebug with a couple of different types of embossing folders. The stamp sets I have used are Priceless and Think Happy Thoughts. I hope you like it.

Rak from Meighan

I opened my mailbox yesterday and collected my mail and there was a hand written envelope inside so I instantly opened it and inside was this beautiful hand made card from Meighan. Meighan is part of Stampin in oz group which I have also joined which sends out monthly RAK's. It is so nice to receive mail that doesn't have a window on it. I was really excited to receive this card so keep an eye out Meighan for your RRAK. Meighan has used the Crayon Resist technique to make this lovely card.

Late Mojo Monday Challenge 73

This challenge was posted by Mojo monday a couple of weeks ago and I am only just getting to play with it now. I really liked the layout of this challenge, I have been busting to have a go at it but have only just got the chance tonight. The colours I used are Whisper White, Night of Navy, Bashful Blue & So Saffron. The stamp set is the Nursery Necessities. I think everything else there is pretty straight forward if not send me an email and I will happily answer any questions. I think this is the sketch I will use for my customers this month. Girls if you are reading here is a headstart for you until I get my emails out. It's to late tonite it's time for bed.

Sorry for the major delay in my posts. I have been flat out this past week. I have had a class and a couple of workshops to prepare for plus all the everyday stuff and swimming lessons with the kids. I havn't partipicated in any challenges this past week so hopefully I will be able to catch up on a few this week and get some things posted. This was a card made by Lorraine at my polished stone technique class on the weekend. The colours she has used here are River Rock and Groovy Guava & Gold as well. She has also used the embrace life stamp set. I will be posting some more pictures of the class and other workshop tomorrow so make sure you check back. Enjoy your night.

Eastern Blooms

This is another card we made at last month's workshop. We used the eastern blooms stamp set and I got my inspiration from Claire Daly another very talented stamper!!!! I again changed this to make it my own. All the girls will no at class they made a slightly different coloured card because I had cut up the wrong colour I had used purely pomegrante instead of rose red. So both colour combinations work rose red, certainly celery and garden green as well as purely pomegrante, certainly celery and garden green. Lucky I cut up a colour that matched!!!!!!!!!!!

All in the family again

Here is another card we made at Technique Class using the all in the family set. This is a really bright and fun card. A great tip that I passed on at this class is if you don't stamp the arms or leg exactly right you can get your black marker and just touch it up. We had lot's of touching up at class......... That dog stamped on there is for you Kylie........

All in the family

This is one of last month's technique class cards using all in the family and the stamp-a-ma-jig. I have used a variety of punches on this card. The spiral, square & various circle punches. The colours are Sage Shadow, Pretty in pink & Basic Black for the film strip. I like the effect the film strip gives.

Mojo Monday Challenge 72

I had a bit of time tonite to "craft" so I decided to have a go at the Mojo Challenge. I used the Simply Said Stamp set that had managed to make its way to the bottom of a pile of stamps. So I have dusted that one off and had a little stamp. I used Rose Red for the base and some Rose Red DS Paper with the polka dots on it. I then used some striped paper out of Winter Bright Simply Scrappin Kit. One of my new favourite flower fusion with a pink rhinestone through the centre. I also used my markers to stamp the from the heart and the main flower image. I think that's just about it. If you have any questions please just ask. Have a great day.
