A little Flower garden.

Hello there craft lovers, I made this card after being part of UStamp last month, it was a project designed by Carrie Gaskin, one of the many talented people who contributed projects for the last session " with Love" . I had fun making this fold out garden card and everyone who has received one has loved it too. I used the scallop circle punch for the flowers and because I didn't own the fabulous Big shot at the time, I painstakingly cut out all the little leaves individually. I am pleased to announce that I'm now the proud owner of the Big shot and the wonderful die "Little Leaves" which cuts out the most beautiful foliage you've ever seen. I know you would love to see the Big Shot machine and all the other goodies about to be released in our new and exciting mini catalogue, so how about you join me and a whole bunch of really talented ESAD (Extra Special Australian and New Zealand Demonstrators) on a new blog hop, which is being held on the first of April. Be prepared to be WOWED by some really outstanding projects all made using new products from our Autumn/ Winter mini. Come back and visit on Thursday for links to the many blogs of wonder. I will be offering some blog candy as usual, all you have to do is leave a hello with your name in the comments on Thursday for a chance to win a free stamp set and some other Stampin'Up! Goodies. I will also tell you about my personal special which I am offering to anyone who purchases the Big shot from me in the month of April. So don't forget to visit on Thursday, lots of inky hugs from .....

Bye Bye Birdy!!!

Hi there everybody peeps, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and managed to relax a little or better still got some ink on your fingers. I had a great day today and went over to friends house to get together with a bunch of stamping buddies. We had fun playing with a whole bunch of water colour techniques and sharing some Stampin'Up! ® goodies.
I'm thankful every day for all the friendships which I have made from being a Stampin'Up! demo, I can't believe it's been two years since I joined up. I've loved every minute of it and hope to continue making new friends and learning new stamping techniques to pass on.
This card has been made using the bird cage from one of our free Sale-A-Bration sets, called Happy Moments. You only have a couple of days left to take advantage of this special time of year. Take care all and thank you for stopping by. Lots of inky hugs from ...

A wagon full of fun...

Hello there fellow blog surfers, I'm back from my holiday away and it feels good to be home. I had no access to a computer for three weeks and I must admit it felt rather like having my right arm removed. Although it did me good to just have fun doing other things and enjoying my friends company, we shopped til we dropped and made lots of new friends.
I made these little cards with the set called Wagon Full Of Fun, which you can see in the current mini. It won't be long and this great mini will be off on it's retirement, so if you haven't had a chance to see it or purchase everything you want from it, please contact your usual demonstrator or myself for a free copy soon, as it will be gone on the 31st of March. I had great fun colouring in these images with the use of my aqua brush and my ink pads for paint palettes. As always with Stampin'Up ® stamps they are so well etched that all the images stamp up really clearly which makes it so easy to colour in.
Oh well, take care and happy stamping, lots of inky hugs from ...

A gift for a lovely hostess.

Hello there, I hope this finds you enjoying your day off for Labour day if you live in WA. I'm catching up on some chores before I leave on my girls holiday next Wed. I was demoing at a Stampin'Up!® party yesterday and this bag was one of the gifts I had made for my Hostess, I filled it with chocolates of course! It was a lovely day and it was nice to catch up with a wonderful group of ladies who I have now become friends with through this great job of mine. We all enjoyed playing with stamps , sharing some beautiful refreshments and great company. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as I did girls.
This little bag was made with Perfect Plum, pale Plum, whisper white and Basic Black card stock, I also used some of our designer paper, patterns range in Choc chip. I used a scallop circle, 1 3/8'' circle and a 1 1/4'' circle punch for the embellishment which was stamped in whisper white onto basic black, then I used some stampin' pastels to give it some colour. The stamped image is from the ever faithful set called Heartfelt Thanks. I have used a white gel pen to do some faux stitching around the bag to finish it off, I hope you like it, take care and thanks for visiting. Lots of inky hugs from ....
