I made these cards last night in the hope to work out how to make a decent male card. I am pretty happy with them. I was trying to do a One Sheet Wonder but turns out it just looks like I cut big rectangles of the pattern paper and just used that! Not to worry though, I'm still happy.

Cardstock: More Mustard, Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue and a striped pattern paper
Ink: Night of Navy, More Mustard, Jet Black StazOn and Bashful Blue

This card was much the same as the one below. I had a few issues getting ideas and didn't stray far past my tried and tested colour scheme but its cute and thats the main thing! As simple as it is, it still took me ages to think up while I was away from home sweet home.

I made this little gift box that holds M&M's and Maltesers for a friend at work called Kachina who is leaving us this week. I wanted to make something that she could take to her new job and put on her desk... she already has a pen holder but if you ask me... this one is way better!!!

I made it using some beer coasters I 'acquired' from Hog's Breath Cafe the other week. The paper is from the Spring Flowers pack of double sided, pattern paper.

Stamps: Looks Like Spring, Whimsical Alphabet
Cardstock: Pretty In Pink, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron and Spring Flowers
Ink: Pretty In Pink and Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Light Pink Grosgrain Ribbon, Spring Flowers Punch


I used Holiday Wishes for a similar card to the one below. I made them both last night and I was having a few inspiration issues. The red layer has VersaMark pressies stamped all over it.

Stamps: Holiday Wishes
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Real Red, More Mustard and Old Olive.
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red, More Mustard and VersaMark


I made this Christmas card last night with my new stamp set called Holiday Wishes. I have to say, I LOVE Christmas cards simply because you can use great colours. I just love Red and Green.

OK so Stampin' Up! went above and beyond to bring us this great stamp set this year... how cool is a surfin' santa?! This set is fantastic.. there is the big guy here and also a gorgeous koala on a candy cane and the cutest kangaroo with arms full of pressies... what more can you want from a Christmas stamp set! Apart from maybe a stamp featuring the original double pluggers and a barbie! OK... yeaaaahh thats goin' too far!

Hmm... I am starting to get slack jawed... I think I will go back to the slightly better spoken English I usually come up with!

Stamps: Happy Christmas Mate! and Canvas Print

YES fellow stampers... the season for going stamp crazy is coming and there is no harm in being prepared!! GOOOO CHRISTMAS!! I am feeling so Merry about my new Christmas sets that I will be over Christmas completely by December! This one is using Sleigh Full of Toys... not that we need sleighs in Australia... not to worry though! I used Elegant Eggplant, Real Red and Garden Green on this card and watercoloured using classic ink pads on Stampin' Up! Watercolour paper.


How sweet is this watering can??? It's from the Nice & Easy Notes set that I managed to score for free for being part of the Hooray for Hostesses promotion that is running until September 15! I just LOVED watercolouring it on the Stampin' Up! watercolour paper (its gold that stuff and makes watercolouring SO EASY!) The other colours I used are Ballet Blue, Brilliant Blue, Regal Rose and So Saffron.

I made this card for a workshop that I have tomorrow. Its using the Stampin' Write markers to colour different areas of the stamp in Chocolate Chip, Ballet Blue, Rose Red and Pumpkin Pie. I used Print Pattern for the background. Simple but cute.


Ok I realise its been quite a while since I have last posted a card that I have made but the truth is I have been REALLY busy! Last weekend my downline Ruth, and I had a Spring Mini Catalogue Launch and made three cards each for 28 people! It was a huge day and this is one of the cards we made using Bodacious Bouquet and Canvas print. The colours are Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive and So Saffron.
