I am at a loss for words. I know it has been a long time since I last posted anything here but I can’t believe that it’s been nearly 12 months. I really don’t know where the time has gone!
I have given my blog a fresh new look and hope to revive my blog over coming weeks.
Don’t give up on me yet!
Love & Marriage … made this card just to add to my stash.
Stamps are Papertrey Ink, cardstock, ribbon & ink as always is SU.
Off to create a card for our nephew Kyle and his fiancé Faye for a group gift so I think I might have to use this set again but make something like the Meander Book (tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers) for everyone to sign. The challenge is on!
I ordered some wonderful new Papertrey Ink products a while back but haven’t had much of a chance to play with them until now. In today’s card I’ve used Rustic Wreath in a very clean and simple design. After stamping in black I coloured the wreath with a white gel pen and then added some red dots using a clear red gel pen. Nothing too hard, just a little time consuming colouring the wreath. I think it would look great as a square card but if posting within Australia then the post office likes to charge extra for square cards, so I’ve kept it as a rectangle.
It’s incredibly hot outside again today for the 3rd day in a row the temperature has soared over 40°c – currently it’s about 44.7°c outside … no wonder the poor air conditioner is struggling!
So today I share the 2nd of the Snowflake themed Christmas cards I made, again using SU’s Snowflake Soiree … did I mention that I LOVE this set!! Clean and simple in design although not so when you are trying to replicate for an order – had to replace the bad photo I had here as the more I looked at it the worse it was, but still can’t for some reason, get a good photo of this card!! :)
For me this year it was all about snowflakes! I really love snowflakes, they are so delicate and beautiful so created 3 cards around snowflakes. I had a corporate order and used 2 designs of the 3 to make up my order and luckily for all our family and friends I had enough left overs from the order that everyone (except 1 person) will get a hand made card this year, unlike last year where no one received a hand made card.
As promised, here is card #2 made with the lovely CTMH A Chocolate Affair stamps and SU & Nesabilities card, ink & accessories. Looks like I am into the clean & simple at the moment.
About a month ago I said I was going to share some cards I’d made with a stamp set gifted to me by my fabulous friend Courtney – you can check out Courtney’s blog HERE. Courtney is one of Australia’s first CTMH (Close to my Heart) demonstrators and during the month of August their stamp of the month was the awesome “A Chocolate Affair” set comprising of 16 stamps. Anyway today I share my first card made with CTMH stamps and SU papers & ribbon.
