Now despite looking simpler than yesterday’s card I think this one actually took me longer to make! Stamps are Papertrey Ink combined with some SU cardstock and ink. Clean & simple and I thought very suitable for an Australian Christmas!
Happy Friday everyone! Has been like forever since I last posted here. Started a 2nd job back in November and I didn’t realise just how much time I would loose. All good though as I am enjoying it now I’m all settled in.
Took some ‘me’ time this morning for some craft. Not card making but sewing and made myself 3 camera strap covers! I love them!!
Ok – so since I was here yesterday WordPress have changed their posting format. Not a bad thing I guess, just don’t like changes when something is working well.
My card today was based on a Dawn McVey card (unfortunately I can’t post a link directly to the card but here’s the link to the PTI website where you will see the original card). I changed the format – portrait to landscape – but not much else as I really loved this card. Not that hard really and didn’t take that long to put together. Created with the Papertrey Ink Winter Penguin Set, SU cardstock & ink and some bling from my stash.
Have a few birthdays coming up in the next few weeks so I’ve been working on some cards and have made a start on some Christmas cards (finally!) as well. It feels good to be creative in my craft room again after such a long absence! Using some old Basic grey papers and matching them up with some SU inks, card stock & stamps I managed my first card in a very long time! I have more to share but will space them out over the next week or so.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Hi all … well, been a couple of weeks since my last post but not as long as the last time! What can I say but I seem to have lost my MOJO in a huge way so it was kinda nice to create something, even such a C&S card. My wonderful husband and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary on Monday and I made this very C&S card for him using Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler & Basic Black cardstock. It was the first time I’ve used the Sprinkled Expressions stamp set and I combined the Heart stamp firstly with some Versamark then Cherry Cobbler Ink before sprinkling and heat embossing some clear opalescent embossing powder.
Hello! Long time no post. I have to say that I really haven’t been crafting much of late as I’ve been side tracked by photography the last few months (year!). Not only did I take on Project 365 – to take at least one photo every day for 365 days which I finished about a month ago but this time of year here in Western Australia we have the most phenomenal native orchids so in between work I’ve been out and about hunting down orchids, including one day where I drove a 500 kilometre round trip for The Queen of Sheba – you can see her on my other blog Chelle’s Life on the 17th of September.
Ok – it was my parent’s 50th Wedding Anniversary earlier in the month and although I took photos I have yet to upload the guest book I made for them. Not a big fan of gold, I used Not Quite Navy and Vanilla as my base colours. I purchased a “50″ wooden album made by Kaiser and decorated it using Stampin’ Up! products. They both have the same initials hence the DJC on the album cover. Love how it all came together, and so did they!
Sorry my photography isn’t the best – the images look flat & dull which is just how the weather has been the last couple of weeks. It’s lovely that winter has arrived, however a little bit of autumn between summer & winter would be awesome. I made this card a couple of weeks ago (bit slow in posting I know) and I have to admit that although it took a little time to get it all as I wanted I had much fun making this card! A mix of products from Stampin’ Up!, Papertrey Ink and goods from my stash including ribbons. I have to send out a big thank you to SU demonstrator Lisa Young for her tutorial for the pop up card – clear, simple instructions that are easy to follow!
Had a phone call the other week from our nephew’s finánce Emma in regards to where she might find a guest book for their engagement party, I said leave it to me and I’d organise one for them … so this is what I ended up creating for them based on their invitation of red and black and hearts. Emma just loved it and was ever so grateful and I had great fun creating this little album for them!
Wishing you both every happiness Emma & Brad as you build your future lives together xo
