This was the make and take at the stamping meeting and I can’t wait to try my own version of it… No stamps were used in the creation of this card

Christmas Tree

All you need is the scallop punch, scissors and the star punch oh and the word window punch for the tree trunk and voila!

Thanks Cass!

This week for the stamping meeting the theme was from the new catalogue. There were some great cards. Here is mine…

Butterfly Garden

Card: Kiwi Kiss
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Versamark
Stamp Set: Great Friend
Accessories: Embossing Powder/Buddy/Trays, Head Gun, Stamp-ma-jig, earth elements designer paper
Technique: I stamped the butterfly on designer paper and cut it out so if you see the card, the wings stand up and it has colour on both sides. Perhaps I should have photographed it so you could see the butterfly flying. I also stamped the butterfly straight onto the card and mounted the cut out butterfly ontop.
I used the stamp-ma-jig so I could create a branch coming off the main stalk.

Someone else at the meeting had a similar idea to me..
Pretty in Pink Butterfly

Card: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Gable Green
Ink: Green Galore, Pixie Pink
Stamp Set: Great Friend
I love the silver sparkly antennas

Australian Card – Bloom Away


I have been wanting to use this set for ages but just finding the moments.

Card Stock: Tangerine Tango and Chocolate Chip
Ink: Whisper White
Accessories: SNAIL adhesive

Simple. I want to add something but I couldn’t find what I wanted. I can just personalise it when I decide who I want to give it to and for what.

A little bit smudged but fun to make.

First Workshop

My First Workshop CardHere’s the card that I “designed” for my first workshop this Saturday!

This card has been “cased” from a variety of sources. I originally got the idea from one source (a card that was on Vanessa’s table one workshop), went home and played around with it and had my hubby chip in a few suggestions. Then when Vanessa came over she had some design ideas from another website (you’ll have to remind me whose it was ‘Ness) and this is what we have.

On 3 whisper white squares I stamped 3 different animals from the Wild About You stamp set in cameo coral and garden green. I used my stamp-ma-jig to align them so I got the bits of the animal I wanted on the square. Then on another piece of whisper white card I stamped the animals again and cut out the different sections that I wanted to be 3D. The lion’s mane (my hubby’s fault, I originally did the lion’s head and he innocently asked me how it would look with the mane.), the elephant’s ear and a little bird to join the giraffe. I used the portable cutter kit to help cut out the lion’s head and just leave the mane.

I used the spiral punch on a strip of black card and then stuck the 3 animals on the strip.

Next I (actually Vanessa), used the Circle of Friendship Stamp set that is in this month’s escape promotion onto cameo coral. She cut out around the circle (though at the workshop we will be using the 1″ punch) and then cut out a circle of black using the 1″1/4 punch and punched out the middle of the congratulations stamp using the 1/4″ punch. I used dimensionals so the circle would stand out and tied black and white gingham ribbon through the circle.

All this was placed on a cameo coral card.

I also used my stampin’ spots to have a olive green and Ruby Red flower for the elephant.
