1.Layer One — 5.5 x 8.5″, scored and folded to make your Card Base
It is a couple of days since my last posting, but I have been in Brissie & now trying to organise myself for a new street market the local council are starting for the Christmas Holidays!
After not doing any markets for over 4 years, I forgot how much prep is required, but I am slowly getting there – I think, maybe! Anyhow, who says I can’t panic at the last moment!
This is a card I did some time ago, but thought I would post it to give you all a look-see!
Cardstock – Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla
Stamp Set – Embrace Life
Ink – Perfect Plum
Accessories – Snail Adhesive
Ribbon – Non-SU
Stamp the flower randomly onto the 2nd layer – Certainly Celery
Cut the3rd layer – Very Vanilla – into 3 equal pieces
Using Perfect Plum Stamp Pad, stamp leaves onto each piece of the 3 pieces of Very Vanilla, ensuring they are in the middle of each piece
Tie Ribbon around the bottom of a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock
Leaving a small edge around the Very Vanilla & allowing Certainly Celery to show through adhere to middle of 2nd layer
Adhere the other 2 pieces to either side of the middle piece
Leaving a small edge, adhere the 2nd layer – Certainly Celery – to the top of the Card – Perfect Plum
If you don’t understand the tutorial, please do not hesitate to email me & I will only be too happy to explain
Welcome to November!
I haven’t posted for a couple of days – been sort of busy & run off my feet.
I made this card yesterday, not knowing what I was going to do, but as usual walking around with the colours – Pumpkin Pie & Old Olive – in my hand. Finally picked the stamp set, sat down & played.
These aren’t my usual colours, but have wanted to go out of the box for a change & see what I can come up with.
Stamp Set – Eastern Blooms
Ink Pad – Pumpkin Pie, Night of Navy
Card Stock – Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Very Vanilla

Until tmw – have a great night!
I have been in a real stampin’ mood the last couple of days & can’t get to the ideas in my head quick enough, before loosing them. I fnally found my old book of cards which I had started with yonks & yonks ago… so now I have heaps of ideas to take using great new papers, stamps, accessories! They won’t be looking like the ol’ cards once I have revamped the sketches, etc.
I have made this card especially for “Miss DEAM” – opps “Mrs”. She will be thinking that I didn’t get it when she signed off using the name the other day, but yep Deb, I did! This is for you & should be receiving it the slow mail. How long does mail take to get to Port Hedland?
