More Flowers From The Garden

Hi there!

Here is another card from the stamp set Long -Time Friend. I coloured the the image using Night of Navy, taken with teal and elegant eggplant.
The image is matted onto taken with teal and black. I inked up the paisley background stamp in basic black and stamped it onto taken with teal and mounted it onto black card and then onto the base card which is rose red.

This time I used my aqua painter and ink from my
ink pads.

Something From The Garden

Hello there how are you card makers?
Hope you had a great weekend.

My husband Mark was home for the weekend and has gone back to Wagga Wagga for more training.

We had rain which was so greatly needed for the farms as we are in a really bad drought at the moment.

Our neighbours went away for the weekend and left us to take care of there puppy dog she is so cut. I am not really a small dog lover but she has a lovely nature. We took her for long walks in the morning and evening it was lovely to get out and enjoy the cooler weather.

It can get so hot here that it makes it really difficult to get out and walk as it is just to hot.

Anyway enough yakking about stuff... the fresh rain reminded me of all the flowers that bloom and how it makes everything grow so this card was inspired by the rain and the garden.

The stamp set is from the Summer Mini Catalogue and it is called Long-Time Friend.

I stamped the image on water colour paper and coloured it in using water colour wonder crayons (earth elements) The matt card is close to coco and the base card is old olive.

You can find the PDF to the Mini Catalogue Under Stampin Up! link on my blog.

If you would like to learn more about the Summer Mini catalogue promotion or Sale-A-Bration please contact me by email. Or through the demonstrator locator on the Australian Stampin Up! web site.

Enjoy your day!

The notes measure 71/2 cm X 51/2 cm.
I attached doubles side tape to the back so they can be easily attached to a gift without the use of and envelope.

Time Well Spent

Had a good weekend I hope?
It was lovely to have Mark home for the weekend it was just lovely and we had a great time. I must say I am finding it a bit of an adjustment having him home at "normal" hours but so glad to have him with me after all thees years of working crazy hours.

He left again this morning for his 2 hour drive to work so will be looking forward to him returning on Friday. So from now till then I guess I will be stamping...................Yippee.

This is what I have been up to today hope you like it.

This Stamp set is the level 3 hostess from the new 2008 - 2009 catty which will be launched in April. Every year Stampin Up! sends us demonstrators a gift around Christmas and this year it was this stamp set Time well spent, it's so cute and fun.

The box was downloaded from the Stampin Up! web site as a demonstrator I have access to all these fabulous resources.

I first stamped the words with Sazon on very vanilla card and coloured the words in with my markers ,mellow moss and ballet blue.

The vanilla card was then layered on Mellow moss and ballet blue card. I wrapped the hemp twine round the button and tied a knot, adhering it to the card with crystal effects.

The silver eyelets where then attached and moss gingham ribbon threaded through and tied into a bow.

The background of the box was stamped using the little flower from the same stamp set using mellow moss ink.

Little Notes

Hope you are having a great weekend.
It has cooled down a bit today after being around 37 degrees yesterday sooo..... hot. We had a bit of rain not much but it has helped to keep the temperature down a bit today. Mark and spent the morning in the garden it was lovely, nothing like having you hands in the dirt....
I have been pondering for a while if I should buy this stamp set but I could not help myself and just had to have glad I did it arrived in the mail on Moday.
I first inked up the roller in pretty in pink and rolled it onto pretty in pink card. The dragon fly was stamped using Stazon and coloured in with my water colour wonder crayons....I think I am addicted to I mounted the image onto sage shadow and use my paper piercer down the side. The flower is not Stampin Up! but creates just the finish I was looking for. The words where stamped in black and mounted onto sage shadow with dimensionals. The background was created using my white gel pen and black stampin maker.
My hubby is off tomorrow for more training so guess what ???
Let the stamping frenzy begin!!!!!

Wonderful Flowers

Seeing I had the colours out to make a box I thought I might as well make a card (not quite matching). This is a stamp set is called Mostly Flowers I thing it might be retired in the US but is still available in the AU catty. I have used this stamp set so much I thinks I have almost worn it out.
The base card rose red is stamped with the canvas background using rose red ink. I then stamped the flowers on whisper white with rose red ink 3 times and mounted them on taken with teal.
The 3 images where then placed onto certainly celery and then again onto taken with teal. I have stamped the word wonderful in rose red and mounted it onto certainly celery finishing off with matching ribbon.

Stamping Frenzy

Hello ! Wondering where I have been well i have been in a
Stamping frenzy since Monday Stamping all day and night.......This is one of my fun creations. Being a Stanping up demonstrator we have access to amazing creations and templates. This is a box from our friends at Stampin up!
The box is made with Regal rose, Taken with teal and Certainly celery and Whisper White. I first stamped the cake from "Birthday Whimsy" on whisper white cut it out and mounted it on with dimensional to Certainly celery and the Taken with teal. The ribbon is from the "sweet shop", ribbon originals.
It's hard so see but the bottom of the box is stamped using the Paisley back ground stamp, you might have to zoom in to take a better look.
The top of the box is decorated using a strip of Certainly celery and scalloped with a corner round punch. And finally to finish it off I used certainly celery brads.

Thanks for dropping by!
Have a great day.
