Best Wishes….

After checking out sketch from and wanting to come up with a layout for a Technique Class this Wenesday – Faux Tiles, I thought that maybe I could combine the 2…..  This is the result! 
Mind you, I wanted a male card, but looking at it, could be either male or female.

Get Well..

G’Day Stampers,
An early post for today.  This time a “Get Well” Card for a member of my family.
As I love Stampin’ UP!’s® “Circle Circus”, what better stamp set than this.
Supplies –
Stamp Set – Circle Circus
Ink – Real Red, Always Artichoke, Not Quite Navy
Cardstock – Whisper White, Real Red, Always Artichoke, Not Quite Navy
Punches – Scallop Oval, large Oval
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Grosgrain Ribbon – Real Red
I’ve typed the wording “Thinking of You”

Cards & Things – # 27…

I’ve been trying to clean up & come across some small scraps of cardstock.  Circle Circus just happen to be in my hand at the same time, so I quickly whipped up a couple of Thank You Cards which I used this morning……

While I had all the mess going, I decided to have a go at the Challenge over at and used the same stamp set and sort of the same idea.

instead of Glossy Cardstock.

Challenge SSC129…

Heya Stampers,
I have just completed a challenge & thought I would show you my end results.  In fact I made 2 cards using the same sketch, except I turned one to the side.  As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew what stamp set I wanted to use, but had no idea of colours until I matched the colours with the patterened paper!

Stamp Set – Circle Circus, Short & Sweet
Cardstock – Very Vanilla, Not Quiet Navy
DSP – Kiwi Kiss

When I saw this DSP in the catalogue, I didn’t much go for it, but after working with it & seeing the end result, I LOVE it!
Why not have a go at the sketch yourself & have a bit of fun at the same time!

Tomorrow I will show you what I did with some of the left over cardstock & paper!
