Work of Art - 3" x 3" note cards

Hi there

We had a great turnout at our Creative Inkers Extravaganza on Saturday - 93 attendees :).  I love these events an everyone seems to enjoy them as they keep on coming back!  They all made five projects and this is what I taught with my friend Narelle.  These are 3" x 3" gift cards and they made two of each design using the Work of Art stamp set and the Moonlight DSP Paper Stack - loving both of these products.

The cards then went in a cute box created by Jacque, Angela and Kathryn

Stamps - Work of Art
Card Stock - Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey
Ink - Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey
DSP - Moonlight Paper Stack
Other - Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Dimensionals, Rhinestones

I'll be back tomorrow with the other three projects.

Kinda Eclectic and 2014 In Colors

Hi there

I've been a busy little beaver this last week and am slowly coming up for air.  I have been busy preparing for workshops, classes and our Auckland Extravaganza.  I can now show you the card that I taught at my workshops this weekend - thanks ladies for two great crafting afternoons.

I fell in love with the 'Kinda Eclectic' set when I saw it so I knew I had to use it in my workshop.  This set has six stamps in it and I've managed to use them all on this card and all the new In Colors!

The ladies were able to choose their favourite colour card base so they all looked different - I used Hello Honey for mine.

Stamp Set - Kinda Eclectic
Card Stock - Hello Honey, Very Vanilla
Ink - Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow and Momento Tuxedo Black
Punches - Elegant Butterfly, 3/4" Circle

Well I've just finished prepping for my class on Wednesday - it's taken me longer than I thought as I'm out babysitting and Bella has been sitting on my knee wanting attention.  I think the saying is true - dogs have owners and cats have staff!

Keep warm and dry

Flowershop Birthday

Hi there

This is a card I made for a friend who had her birthday back in March and I'm only just now getting round to bloging it - how bad is that!

Her favourite colour combo is black and white (or vanilla in this case) and my favourite colour is yellow - so I married the two together and this is what I came up with.  I've heat embossed the images then punched them out with the matching Pansy Punch.  I do love it when you get a matching punch or framelit for a stamp set.

Stamp Set - Flowershop, Bring on the Cake (retired)
Card Stock - Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Daffodil Delight
DSP - Modern Medley
Ink - Black StazOn
Other - Black Embossing Powder, Pansy Punch, Itty Bitty Punch pack, Chalk Talk Framelits

Hello Honey meets Lost Lagoon - July class cards

Hi there

I'm not sure what the weather is doing at your place tonight but the wind is howling around at mine - I'm sure the clothesline will be spinning round rather fast!

Here are the cards we made at my July card class last week:

I think this card layout has been a hit since we all saw it on Sandi McIvor's blog.  I loved creating it for my niece (see Sunday's post) so I decided to teach it to my class but this time used Hello Honey as the card base.  I must trial it using the other new In-Colours.

The second card we made was one shown at our recent Team Training.  I've paired Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon with the new Moonlight DSP Paper Stack.  I love these paper stacks and they're great value at 48 sheets for $14.50.  There are two designs in the new catalogue - check them out on page 185

I've used the greeting 'Hello Friend' from the Six Sided Sampler set but only inked up the word 'hello' by using the markers.  This was a very simple card to create but very effective with the top layer being raised on dimensionals to give some height to the card.

Stamp Set - Six Sided Sampler
Card Stock - Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, Whisper White
Marker - Blackberry Bliss
DSP - Moonlight DSP Paper Stack
Other - Hexagon Punch, Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon, Dimensionals, Glue Dots

Work of Art birthday

Hi there

Just a quick post tonight.  It was my niece's 18th birthday last Sunday and here is the card I made for her.  It's a CASE from Sandi McIvor although I've used Flowering Flourishes instead of Everything Eleanor.

I even remembered to photograph the inside this time!  I LOVE the new In-Colours ribbon.  It's nice and soft and it makes beautiful bows.

Stamp Set - Work of Art, Flowering Flourishes, Bring on the Cake (now retired)
Card Stock - Lost Lagoon, Whisper White
Ink - Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, Momento
Other - Hello Honey Stitched Satin Ribbon, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Basic Pearls
