Way out of the box!

Ok here goes...what do you think? I am not sure if I like it or hate it but thought I needed to try something new.
The colours used are basic black, regal rose and whisper white. The stamps set it from Sale-A-Bration "Birthday Whimsy" such a cute stamp set I can see i will get so much use out of it.
Sorry i haven't been around for a few days as I have had my husband home sick. He's ok just flue..feeling much better today and back at work.

Have a happy day!!!

Teddy Bears

I really like this stamp set but haven't had much time to us it of late but have come up with this quick and simple layout for that card on the run. If you are anything like me they are always handy.
I stamped the teddy in night of navy on very vanilla card 3 times and punched it out using the 32cm square punched and mounted on a 35cm square night of navy card. The images are mounted on bravo burgundy and placed on Kraft card. To finish it off I have used bravo burgundy ribbon and silver brads. The Happy Birthday is stamped with night of navy ink and placed on night of navy card.

Merry Christmas to you all hope you had a lovely day filled with fun and happiness.

My husband Mark and I spent the day with some dear friends as we have no family to share Christmas with us. My family liven in South African so we spend our day with close friends. It was a lovely day. To much food of course!

This is the prawn starter we had for lunch yesterday it was delicious followed my the usual turkey and ham, roasted vegetables and the rest.....
Merry Christmas once again I will be back tomorrow with more cards.
Happy stamping!

Birthday Tractor

For all those little boys amongst us!

I designed this cards for all little boys who love trucks and tractors and the big boys of course.
The card is made using Kraft, always artichoke so saffron and whisper white card stock. The tractor is stamped using always artichoke on whisper white. I stamped the tractor again using basic black on whisper white and carefully cut out the tyre mounting then card using dimensional's. The always artichoke card is spritzed using always artichoke makers and the spritzing tool.

The tag was made by colouring the Happy Birthday stamp form All-Year-Cheer 2 using so saffron and always artichoke makers. I punched out the words with the tag punch and then mounted it onto so saffron card and attached to the card with hemp twine as shown.

Gif Tags

My husband Mark wanted to give a small gift to his colleagues in his office as a token of appreciation as he will be leaving the Hospitality industry after 24 years and entering the world of retail. It's going to be a big change for us but a good one at that. We will be able to have a "normal" life together as he won't be working the long hours hospitality demands. I thought I would share the gifts and tags with you.
The tags are made using the Holy Spirit stamp set from the current AU catalogue. The tree is stamped using Night of navy ink stamped off twice and the words "be merry" are in Night of navy. I then punched out the image using the tag punch which comes in very handy at this time of the year. The images are stamped on whisper white and then mounted on brushed silver card stock. The tags are then attached to bag using the silver cord, from Stampin Up! of course.

Loads Of Love

I have uses the Loads of Love stamp set for the Australian 2007 - 2008 catalogue. The truck has been stamped on whisper white and coloured in using and pumpkins using watercolour wonder crayons and a aqua painter. I then used crystal effect on the tyres and pumpkins and added the dazzling diamonds.
I have stamped the canvas background stamp with pumpkin pie ink on the pumpkin pie card just to cover the top part of the card. I have then layered the old olive card across the middle and stamped the pumpkins repeatedly across the bottom using pumpkin pie ink.
I adhered the truck image to ot quite navy card, wrapped the black grosgrain ribbon and tied it in place. I then stamped Happy harvest in black and clear embossed it and then added 2 silver brads for added effect.
I really enjoy using dazzling diamonds as it give such a great effect to a finished card.
