Today, I’ve managed to do a challenge over at Stampin411 – – so why not have a go.  They are always fun & easy to do.  The best part being, all the hard work is done for you, all you have to do is select a stamp.

Bird Day…

This is our 2nd card we did at our Tech Classthis month.  We used the Technique “Baby Wipe”!  What a fun & quick technique.  It sure makes a big difference to your card and gives you another option for backgrounds.
If you haven’t had a class of  this technique, wny not book in for one this month.  You still have time.

4 You…

G’day Stampers,

Being a couple of days since my last entry, thought I would share a small project I am currently working on.  This will not be finished ’til later on 2-nite!  I am yet to decide how & what I am going to make to store the cards.  Something simple & quick, as were the cards, but yet something which will suit the style of the cards!
I want to highlight the use of the great “Wheels” Stampin’ Up!® have!

SSSC64 – Congratulations…..

G’day Stampers,
It has been a couple of days since my last post, but had some great news last Saturday night & as a result this is the card I come up with using the sketch SSSC64 from “The Sweetest Thing” –

Knowing that red was a must and what goes with red, but black & white!  Then not being able to decide between the sets “Embrace Life” or “Eastern Blooms” –  the flower from “Eastern Blooms” winning out in the end, as I just love how the Heat Embossing Technique works on this flower.
I’ve changed the layout of the flowers a little.
Card –
Supplies –
Stamp Set – Eastern Blooms, Wonderful Words
Ink – Basic Black, Versa-Mark
Cardstock – Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Pretties Kit, 2-Way Glue,

Congratulations Dannielle & Chis!

One Box, Sooooo Many Uses….

G’Day Stampers,

I’ve been off the air lately, but last night sat myself down & created a box.  I don’t know how or what possessed me, but I just knew that I had to come up with something which I could use for many things – jewellery box, pencil case, chocolates, office, etc.  The list is endless. 
This one is going into my own bag, as I can never find my pens and will include my office supplies which I carry around with me.  It is not very big, that it will take up a lot of room!  My ruler even fits into it!

Can’t you just see a chain or pendant sitting in here?  
2 small bars of chocolate fit perfectly or 5 Ferro Rachero’s.
 The list is endless!

New Year…. New Card…
