A Note to Say….

I’ve just completed a set of 4 Thank You Cards – very easy, basic but a better look than just a plain piece of paper.  Have a look yourselves & see what you think!

Supplies Used –
Stamp Set – Great Friend

I love black & pink together, so I gathered my little bits & pieces of cardstock & DSP to make these notes.  What better way to use your small pieces of scrap? 
The “A Note to Say “Thank You” has been typed on the pc & printed.
Until next time, Enjoy

Challenge # 51

The challenge for the week is using Brads on your Cards, Scrapbooking or 3-D Projects.
I’ve just realised that the top of the box I did for the Stamp Club will be ok for this week’s challenge from Late Night Stampers.  Very easy & simple.  It would also made a great easy 5 minute card.
Please see post below for more details
Until tmw

Stamp Club Project – January…

Good Afternoon Friends,
I have been working on a project for January’s Stamp Club. 
Supplies –
Stamp Set – 5th Avenue
Cardstock – Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Going Gray, Whisper White, Not Quite Navy
DSP – Urban Oasis
Accents & Elements – Flower Fusion – Olid Olive
Brads – Earth Elements – Not Quite Navy
Ribbons – Grosgrain – Olive Green, Not Quite Navy
Punches – Scallop Oval, Oval
Accessories – Sticky Strip, Snail Adhesive

Bottom has been made using the bottom of a Origami Box, except with a lid, I wanted to be able to open it from the top and not have to untie ribbons, so this is what I come up with.

Lid Open
I then proceeded to make matching Note Cards & Envelopes.  I’ve left the cards blank on purpose as this way they are able to be used for any occasion.  The envelopes I made from Photo-Copy Paper.  I’ve then stamp the corner of the envelopes using 5th Avenue stamp set.
Note Cards & Envelopes
This project is also available via e-mail & post.  Please contact me for emailing or posting.
It will include all you require to complete the project, excluding stamps, ink, & adhesives.
If you would like to attend, please email & let me know so that I am aware of numbers.
Until tmw when another card or project will be posted.

Crazy4Challenges – # C4C17

Good Morning All,
Well, I have done it again – another challenge!  It is not like I have nothing better to do!  Oh wait!  I don’t, as I am in Brissie, but hopefully not for much longer.
Sketch # 13
My Card
Supplies –
Cardstock – Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamp Set – Oval All – Retired
DSP – Urban Oasis
Accessories – Pretties Kit – Pearl & Flower, Sanil Adhesive
Punches – Scallop Oval – Retired, Small Oval, 3/4″ Circle
I’ve embossed the white with my Cuttlebug, which gives it a bit of a different look.  Thought about introducing red into the scheme of things, but kept to the basic black & white!
I am really forcing myself to start using the DSP, but they are just so lovely that I don’t want to “hurt” them!

Until next time – Enjoy
