Good Morning

It's a little windy here in Brisbane today and the temperature has dropped this morning making for a very pleasant day. Before I have my morning coffee, I wanted to share a Christmas card I have made using the Frosted Floral Suite.

This pretty card is now winging it's way to my Aunt who lives in England and whom we are going to visit next year in May ... so excited!

Now it is not your normal Christmas card but I love the colours. I have used the First Frost Stamp set and the Frosted Bouquet Framelit Dies which lend themselves to any occasion as well as Christmas. The Frosted Floral Suite can be found on page 4 of the current Holiday mini. Colours used were Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Mellow Moss and a retired colour called Cool Carribean ... sorry!  All products are Stampin' Up!

Happy Stampin'

It's a gorgeous winter's day here in Brisbane and it's perfect weather for me and a perfect day to share a card with you all out there in cyber world.

This was the very first set that I bought from the new catalogue. I love flowers and images such as these are perfect for many occasions. I stamped the background words in Smoky Slate using the Handwritten background stamp. All other images are from the Varies Vases set found on page 45 of the catalogue. The Stitched Circle is Smokey Slate card embossed with the new Subtle embossing folder, my second purchase from the new catalogue. You can see some new Rose Metallic Thread and gorgeous sequins also retired.

Hello and a happy day to you..

Hello Everyone

My littlest granddaughter turned 1 last week and I had fun making this little card for her.

Maggie is such a cutie and is just starting to walk which means lots more trouble for Granny on a Monday.

The colours I used to stamp the Baby Bear (stamp set) Card are Coastal Cabana and Pretty in Pink (retired).  Card colours are Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Pretty in Pink (retired) Gold and Sparkle Glimmer Paper. Embossing folder and Candle Die are non Stampin' Up products!

Happy Stampin' my friends

Good afternoon friends

Just a quick post to share a couple of cards that I have made this weekend.

One is for my Grandson James who turns 2 today and I have made a Side Step cute punch art card using Stampin' Up! punches to create farm animals. His birthday present happens to be a set of farm animals and a barn so the card is matchy matchy :). All products are Stampin' Up! apart from the googley eyes, the number 2 and the enamel dots.

The other card is for a friend who turns 50 on Wednesday. I used the very versatile Colorful Seasons stamp set and the matching Seasonal Framelits to make Deborah's card. I also did a little watercolouring for the background to give it a soft look. Most products are Stampin' Up! apart from the sequins and the cord.

I will be putting in an order this Wednesday for any of you who would like to take advantage of the Sale-a-bration special. There is only one month left to get your freebies and time is ticking away. If you are contemplating ordering something let me know by the 28th so that I can include you in this order.

Enjoy your Sunday evening and Happy Stampin'!

Good Afternoon everyone

Hope you are enjoying your weekend and that you find time to play a little.

I am just keeping you updated with some Stampin' Up! news. On the 16th SU added a few extra freebies to the Sale-a-bration goodies already on offer. I love the Eclectic Expressions stamp set as there are some nice background images in there. You will also see some lovely new Designer Series Paper and if you have an extra big wish list the Blossoming Basket Bundle could be right up your alley. You can see a copy of the new HERE

I would like to share a card that I created for my friend Belinda using the new Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set from the Occasions Mini and the co-ordinating 6 x 6 Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper. You will notice on the card that I have used some contraband with the streamers being created using a Reverse Confetti die called Garland. Unfortunately one of the items related to the Picture Perfect Party Suite which is now unavailable is the Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon. I'm a little sad about this as they would have made great streamers.  

If you would like to place an order you know what you have to do ... just send me an email.

Happy Stampin'
