Petal Parade…

Zoo Babies…

I’ve loved this cute little stamp set since I laid eyes on & have only just managed to ink it up now.  Shame on me!
 
Today’s card is one we created in our Friday’s Crafty Creations Class.  As usual, I CASEd my card for today.  You can see the original on Pinterest.  I changed my up a little using all SU! Products, but the class did actually use the Embossing Folder which is on the original card.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.
 
I’ve also used the gorgeous new Embossing Folder – Decorative Dots – which is a FREE item you are able to earn in the upcoming Sale-A-Bration, starting Tuesday, 28 January.  All you have to do is spend $90.00 AUD (excluding P&H).  Contact me for more details!

Having a Play…

… with the Circle Card Thinlits.  I’ve had them for some time, but was playing around the other day & decided to give them a bit of a workout!
 
If you haven’t purchased these Thinlits, do so, as you will have so much fun doing so.  In fact, this is going to be a card for one of my Birthday next month.

It is a little different to my usual cards, so I would love to know what you think?
 
I will try & write a basic Tutorial for this card in the next couple of days & post for you.

Sweet Birthday…

I have another niece’s birthday in a couple of days & this is the card I created for her.

Happy Birthday….

My volunteer class started back today after a couple of weeks break.  I used the break to my advantage by planning 3 months of classes including the cards we will be creating In Crafty Creations. 

Mind you, in saying that, the ladies know what I am like & will probably change half of them by the time we get around to creating them, but that is part of the fun & the unexpected!

As with Friday’s card, I usually CASE this one – Copy & Share Everything.  This week is no different.  I found this card on Pinterest by Beverlee Morales which I thought the perfect card to start the new year off with.  I only hope the ladies like it as much as I do.  Thank you Beverlee for your inspiration.

Birthday Wishes…

…with Sale-A-Bration!
 
As I’ve mentioned previously in a post a couple of days ago, the DSP for SAB this year are gorgeous & I can’t seem to get enough of them.  Mind you, it did take me a little time & a lot of courage to cute into the pack, but now that I am, I can’t stop using them.
 
Today’s card is one I cased from Pinterest by Susan Harr.  I love that I can check this site out & find anything I want, especially when your mind is taking its time to get back into the creative mode from being on leave for a couple of weeks.  Casing cards will help you get into the creative zone again!
 
In fact, it is another one of my Birthday Cards I created for my birthdays this month.

Merry Christmas….

One of our Technique Classes for November was to use “Washi Tape“.  I will be the first to admit that I was not keen on using this Tape as I have never really been able to get into what all the hype was all about. 

Knowing some of the ladies had played with the Tape previously & comments like “Don’t know what everyone is raving about“, “Nope, not me”, “Don’t know what to do with it other than stick it on a corner”, etc.  You get the idea.  I decided to jump out of my comfort zone & play with some!  Well, what a mistake on my behalf – I am hooked.  I can now understand all the hype!

I think I’ve convinced everyone that it is a great little product & the result can create a very different look!

Since this photo was taken, I’ve added a little bit of bling to the centre of the present & to the bow at the top.

    Paper Angel…

    My share today is one that we finished the year off with in our Technique ClassChristmas Paper Angel.  Create a heap of them in all different sizes & colours & hang from your Christmas Tree.  The list is endless in how you could adjust this little angel to create something unique.

    I will admit it is not my idea, I actually found it on Pinterest, but when I went back to find it, check to see if there was a tutorial & link it back, no luck.  Please let me know if you recognize this angel as I would love to give you credit for it.  Thank you so much for your inspiration!

    As I didn’t save the picture & had no instructions, I sort of started out blind.  I played for sometime until I got it just right or to how I remembered it looking.  I actually used DSP for my angel, whereas the one I saw was Pool Party, I think!

    I have used a retired punch for the heart, but it is easy to replace with any current shape, including the Fashionable Hearts Embosslits.

    The tutorial will be on my FREE TUTORIAL Page if you want to re-create it!

    Supplies –           
    Cardstock – Glimmer Paper – Silver – 124005, Vellum – 106584
    DSP – Winter Frost Speciality – 132341
    Punches – Scallop Edge Border – 119882, Heart – Retired
    Accessories – Simply Scoring Tool – 122334, Trimmer – 129722, Dazzling Details – Silver Sparkle – 127845, Bone Folder – 102300

    Out with a Bang…

    Belle – My little helper for the day!

    It is a lovely overcast day here which means I have a helper sitting on my desk.  Actually, I often move her little bed to the desk where she likes to have her morning sleep before getting up & going outside for a couple of hours.

    It was our last class for the year with Crafty Creations & we decided to go “out with a bang” – so to speak!

    As well as having a small Christmas break up, we also created this great Christmas Cracker which can filled with lots of little goodies.  Mine has been created especially for one of my niece – Ash which I will fill with chocolates as she is mad on the stuff,  must take after me!

    It is light enough that I will be able to hang it from the tree.  I now to have to create another for Sarah.

    I found a great little tutorial from Sara.  I did change it a little as I made it a little longer on the edges as I wanted to punch them to give it a little bit more of a different look. 

    As I am waiting on my order & knowing the image would be too big anyhow, I decided to use the Santa image from “Santa’s List” using MDS.  This way, I could still colour him the exact colours I wanted AND also reduce him to the exact size I wanted.  Gotta love that!

    This project also fits our current challenge over at Sunny Challenges where we have to create something for the Christmas Season.

     Supplies –
    Stamp Set – Santa’s List – MDS
    Cardstock – Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
    Punches – 1 1/4″ Circle, 1 3/8″Circle, Scallop Circle, Pinking Hearts Border – Retired
    DSP – Season of Style
    Accessories – Gel Pen – White, Sticky Strip, Simply Scoring Too, Envelope Punch Board
    Ribbon – Non-SU!
