Shadow Box Card

Hi there everyone, Seems I best apologise for my last of posts over the last two weeks, I carn't believe it has been that long. The first week I was keep busy preparing for my weekends class and I had visitors that weekend as well. My visitor actually bought the twilight DVD home with her, so that seen me in BigW on Monday purchasing all 4 books to the twilight series. So that has what has been keeping me from here all week. I started reading Monday night when I got home and am happy to say that I finished them yesterday, but also a tad unhappy as well because they were sooooo goood I would love to read another 4. Ok enough about my life I guess it's time to talk about the card. This is a Shadow Box Card and I have used the Pariasian Breeze DS Papers together with Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Night of Navy and Baja Breeze. I have used the Uncharted Territory Stamp set and I have stamped that on a piece of actetate with the White Staz On Ink Pad. I have also then layered the Night of Navy and Chocolate Chip Sail underneath. I finished off with some white brads. I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

Birthday Card

I started making this card the other day for Keesh's Challenge however I just couldn't get the colours right and I needed to use green for the stems so I swapped over So Saffron for Baja Breeze and then Real Red wasn't right, so I swapped that one for Riding Hood Red. I had to make a Birthday card for a friend as well so that it what this has turned into with nothing like the colours for Keesh's Challenge. Isn't it funny how cards evolve sometimes. So the colours I ended up using are Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red and Old Olive. If you scroll done a post or so you will see the Colours for Keesh's Challenge nothing alike..............Anyway I was really happy with how this turned out. The stamp sets are Live like you mean it and Think Happy Thoughts. I used the Button Bouquet buttons which is what makes the card i think........I am off to do some creating for this weekends class. Have a lovely night......

Keesh's Colour Challenge

Hi, I hope you are all having a fabulous day because I am. I am having a child free day today which is a total rare occassion for me. One of my good friends has taken Josephine for the day and Nicholas is at school. It is very quite around here. I went for a lovely walk this morning around the farm, just me and my old dog, he thought it was great, just like old times, old being the operative word, we are both much slower these I have been in my craft room, stamping, I am preparing for class next weekend and I thought I would have a play along with Keesh's Colour Challenge. I was a bit unsure at first, the colours were Real Red, So Saffron, Regal Rose & Whisper White. But I can happily say that these colours do work together. I made a skirt for the bottom of my card with So Saffron DS Paper. I was meant to be making curtains for Josephine's room today, but I have all my sewing stuff packed away to make room for the stamping stuff, I just wasn't in the mood for it, but I guess it must have been still on my mind because it's appeared on the stamp set is Flower Fancy and I have used a Hat pin out of the pretties Kit. Must go and clean up my should see the mess.......

Birthday Boy

Today is my DS Birthday so I thought I would pop on here and share with you his birthday card that I have just finished making, talk about organised. With all the running around today and the cake decorating, I didn't get time to make him a card, so I will have this waiting for him in the morning. I am sure he wasn't so concerned with the card just the I have used Night of Navy, Ballet Blue & Yo Yo Yellow. Yellow is his favourite colour so the card had to have yellow on it....... I have cut a piece of acetate the same size as the navy cardstock and stamped in white stazon and then under neath I have doodled with the while gel pen the bits and pieces around the rocket that I had cut off. I then put them together and used the yellow eyelets (retired) to keep them together. The rocket is cut out and stuck on the top of the acetate with dimentionals. I then also decorated inside the card. I love how this has turned out because it has a nice shinny glow about it, just like space would I imagine..... I got the inspiration for a card I had saved on my computer but it has no watermark on it and I have no idea now where it came from, so if it is yours just let me no so I can give you some credit. Oh and the stamp sets I used are Pun Fun & Good Friend......Hope you are having a wonderful nite.......
