Manhattan Floral

I made this card for my blogging friend Leonie who I met at convention for the first time this year. She made me a "Edward Bookmark" and sent it to me in the mail with a gorgeous card. I actually thought I had those photographed to load up here with this, but they aren't on my computer or camera, so I obviously haven't got that far yet. Anyway to show my appreciation for the lovely card and bookmark, this is the card I sent to say Thank You. The colours are Regal Rose, Whisper White and Rose Red. I have used the sanded background stamp and the Manhattan Floral Die with the Bigshot. I have then brayered Regal Rose and Rose Red over the top of the die. I got the original idea from Patty Bennett in the states. We made a card similar to this at last nites class and as the girls experienced it takes a bit of practice to get the brayering right. I will post the card we made last nite later on. Oh yeh, only fellow twilight fans will understand what a "Edward Bookmark"

Baja Thank you card

I no that I can show this card now because the recipient just emailed me to let me no that they received. It was made as a RRAK for a group that I am part of called Stampin Up in Oz. If i did this card again, I would made the dotted panel a bit smaller. We will be making a card similar to this on friday nite at class. So yes the panel will be smaller. As you can see I have had my bow magic out in use no I will get heaps of questions about the white scalloped circle, it is done with the top note die in the bigshot and noooooo is it not my original idea, I seen it on a blog in the states, I thought I saved it for future reference but I just can't find it to link it up to you at the moment. I will find it and get it on here, I am just running out the door at the moment to make the assembly at school......Will be back later.....

Penant Note Cards

Here is a sweet little note card that I whipped up this afternoon. The base colours of the note cards is Kraft, this is another one of my favourite colours, I can't wait to get the matching stamp pad when the new colour renovation comes into effect. I have stuck some DS Paper out of the sweet bella pack and added a rhinestone brad in the centre. First of all, I used the background stamp En Francis to stamp the background in Sahara Sand ink. I finished off with some Bravo burgundy ribbon and twine. This isn't a great picture of the bow, but I have been mucking around with my Bow Easy today. You will definitely be seeing bows appear on my cards from now on.

A red carpet card

I made this card for a 40th Birthday we are going to tonite. The theme is a Red Carpet Event so I was looking for a stylish card and this is what I have come up with. The colours are Basic Basic and Whisper White with a Rhinestone brad for a touch of bling. I hope I don't freeze tonite because the weather is so bad here at the moment. Have a great day where ever you are....

Soccor Card

Keeping with the soccor theme, I decided to make a soccor card for one of Nicholas Friends. Shannon showed us how to do this at convention this year. I am really happy with how it has turned out and think now I have worked it all out I may as well go and make a few more. There is no stamping on this card just punching and cutting. Only a short post today, am slowly getting through the list of things to do. Leonie made one of these in pink, you can find her blog here. It looks great in both colours.

Soccor Scrapbook Page

I have been getting some scrapbooking done over the last week, which is a really good feeling. Here is one of the double pages that I started out with. I have always wanted to do this soccor ball since I first seen it, years ago, I have just added my own spin on it. I can tell you I am loving how it has turned out, but man it is a lot of work........ I have actually used some of my retired DSP for this page and one of the colours is wild wasabi, which will be back come September as part of our new colour renovation at Stampin Up! I hope you like it and are having a great day. Will try and get back here with some more pages over the next couple days...
