Well hello there, I’ve been in my craft room again getting ready for a card class I’m holding tomorrow. I like to mix up the cards the girls will make so think these 3 are all very different, yet easy considering we chat alot when we meet.
I cut out the 3 square layers and laid them out following the sketch and then stamped my floral image from Concord & 9th ‘Hello lovely’ stamp over the 3 layers. I then coloured the bottom layer and the top layer only, so when I put it back together it has a bit of a spotlight effect.
I’ve had a bustystart to the weekend – Miss K had 2 netball games (lost 1, won 1), lots of cooking to get ready for the next week, laundry, watching the World Cup Netball and some crafting – I think I need to go back to work for a rest!
Pastels are not my usual style but when using stamps from Altenew, they work beautifully. I used ‘Garden Treasures’ and some SU inks. I fussy cut the flowers and leaves and then layered them along the edge with a bit of an overlap.
I used some SU DSP – Magnolia Lane and Perenial Essence – I fussy cut a few of the magnolias and layered them behind the sentiment panel. The sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays ‘Breathe’. I added a few pearls to match the ribbon element in the sketch.
I know I don’t actually have a joke on my card, but I am being a bit tongue in cheek! I printed the sentiment and knickers on my PC and then coloured using my Stampin Blends; fussy cut them out and added some pearls.
Well, that’s it for today. Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
I went to my new Stampin Up ‘Sailing home’ stamp set and did a bit of mirror stamping with the small sailboat image so they were traveling in the same direction as the big boats. I coloured the bats in with my Stampin Blends and then die cut them out. I used a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp called ‘sailing’.

I inked up a stamp set from Altenew called ‘Main squeeze’ using inks from Catherine Pooler Designs. I think the yellows give the card a lovely sunshiny feel and this will go to a friend who always has a sunny outlook on life for her birthday!
I created a Wedding card for a wedding I went to on the 1st of July. For my card I used a new set from Stampin Up called ‘Butterfly wishes’ which I inked up in Catherine Pooler inks – midnight and bellini. This is a gorgeous stamp set with gives great shade to the stamps. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions ‘Simply Strips’.
I just love how this card came out and hope my friend does too.

Well, this month we have another challenge over at Sweet Stampin’ Christmas challenge blog with an optional twist to create a Christmas in the Sun project.
This is a usual type of Christmas here in Australia. I used and modified a set from MFT called ‘ Jingle all the way’ and coloured Santa in with my Stampin Blends; I used a sentiment from Stampin Up ‘So Santa’ and sponged the beach background with my Distress Oxide Inks and added a frame.

I was on a roll with my AIs and tried the lift technique again but with a stencil rather than a stamp this time. The lift pad wasn’t working so well, so I used the lift re-inker and dabbed drops onto the panel in the stencil gaps and then lifted the ink off. I added a bit of gold thread for that party glitz feel. Thanks for the layout inspiration Kreative Kristie.
Well that’s it for today – thanks for looking and have a great day.
