Traveller

This card was part of a set created using the images from the Traveller stamp set. The World Map is a digital image adjusted in MDS and printed so as to create a landscape card. 

Blended Bloom

No prizes for guessing which stamp sets and Designer Series Paper is on my desk .  The diagonal striped paper from Typeset series works effectively in small quantities to add interest.

Wisteria Wonder Blendabilities were used to colour the flower with Daffodil Delight Blendabilities for centre.

Blended Bloom and Blendabilities

These are some of the cards created in our first Blendabilities class. Using just the Daffodil Delight and Coastal Cabanna Blendabilities sets. A Vintage button was coloured with the Bllendabilities to match the centre of the bloom.




Joyful Christmas one last time

I really enjoy using this stamp set - Joyful Christmas from last years Holiday catalogue but it's time for a new Holiday catalogue. So the Carryover items are only available until 27 August. Take a look on my website before it's too late.

I coloured the flower using the Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities. The Party Pennants Bigz L die is living in my Big Shot also, so useful.

Cancer Fundraiser creations

Here are the cards the ladies got to create on the night of the fundraiser. It was amazing how well everyone worked on their cards.  Thanks for the help along the way, sharing your knowledge to others who were creating for the very first time.  That's what it's all about!

Shop online by 16 May using the Hostess Code 67M2WJD4 at the Shopping Bag and you will also be contributing to the funds raised.

Flower Shop

Well it's been awhile since a post, mainly because my keyword won't talk to my computer nor my mouse, unsociable really!  The ladies at a recent fundraiser made this card.  The cards were all in blues, white and grey with a touch of pink being Blushing Bride.  Just had to add the bicycle to the finished card to give a vintage appear.  The night was a success for fundraising team and Cancer Council.  Thank you to Stampin' Up! for continuing to support such events.

Shop Around Vintage style card

Yep I'm attempting a challenge.  The images are from the Shop Around jumbo wheel from Stampin' Up!  I've punched out different parts of the images and distressed the edges.  The ink is Baked Brown Sugar, but I highlighted the image of the lady.  I stained the White Tea Lace doily to give a vintage look.  The roses are cut out of felt using the Spiral Flower die.  The base card is Naturals Ivory cardstock.  Accessorised with pearls and Linen Thread.  



Enjoy!

Tag a Bag and Simple Stems







































A Tag a Bag Gift bag was decorated for this Simple Stems collection of cards.  Predominately the cards are stamped with the flower from Simple Stems using inkpads: Island Indigo, Old Olive and Crushed Curry.  I wanted to reproduce a colour system I had seen in a shop over the last few days - yellow, blue and green in fresh colours. I used a black marker to highlight the stamen in each flower.  Framelits - Banner and Window Collection were used.

So Very Grateful

























So happy how this card evolved from a few homeless pieces on my table.  The main stamp set used is So Very Grateful:

I used Pool Party and Crumb Cake Ink for the base of the card as they are soft colours.  I stamped half the card with the background stamp En Francis and also Gorgeous Grunge stamp set onto Very Vanilla cardstock.   Baked Brown sugar ink was used to stamp the So Very Grateful stamp on the Pool party and Very Vanilla cardstock and then punched out using the Decorative label punch.  A little Linen thread and large pearl also added interest to finish.
