Fun & Fast Get Well Wishes

I’m very slack … I have been meaning to make this card for a while. It is for a lovely friend who has had an operation recently. Except she’ll be well on the mend by the time she receives the card!

Anyway, a long while ago during a training session I had the chance to use someone else’s Paisley background stamp. Finally, I decided to use it! The rest of the card just grew from the old olive Paisley stamp on Whisper White card stock and the need for a Get Well card. Of course, Fun & Fast Notes provided me with all I needed then. I had fun with my new aqua painter, water colour paper and, naturally, I couldn’t help but use my crop-a-dile!

I really like Old Olive and Regal Rose together … and the ribbons are just fabulous in the new catalogue! Enjoy your day and thanks for looking!

Happy Mother’s Day – take two!

I have one more Mother’s Day card … the card I made for my mother-in-law 🙂  I loved putting the hat pin on this card as I knew my mother-in-law would like it!

I had more fun embossing with versamark and Purely Pomegranate and clear embossing powder on vellum, too!  I am loving my En Francais background stamp … and my Priceless stamp set too!  I really like the colour combo of River Rock and Purely Pomegranate, with a dash of Old Olive (particularly, with the textured cardstock – yum!).  Good fun!

I hope you all had a lovely Mother’s Day 🙂

Baby Shower card

I had a baby shower on the weekend for a very special family member from my husband’s side of the family.  We are all very excited that Alison is pregnant (it has been a tough road) and we know she is also having a boy who is due in August.

This is the card I made for her Baby Shower … it only took about 15 minutes to put together and I was really happy with it.  I found inspiration for the card from SCS here.

I had the pleasure of using my textured card stock again which is just gorgeous and looks fabulous!  Plus, I played with my new Crop-a-dile again and the scallop circle punch.  I used Fun & Fast Notes for the pram and So Many Sayings for the words (with my Bashful Blue marker pen – stamp to rubber).  Of course, although the lighting is bad in the photo, you can’t really see the Dazzling Diamonds I have used.  The wide grosgrain ribbon really finishes the card off.  What do you think?

If you like the effect of the three Barely Banana brads you really should order a Crop-a-dile.  It makes adding an attractive embellishment easy and silent to do 🙂  Email me today!

Mother’s Day Class – Monday 5th May

How would you like to learn a new technique?  Well, come along to my mother’s day technique class on Monday night at 7.30pm.

I’ll be showing everyone who comes how to use a heat tool and embossing powder … we’ll love watching the WOW magic of turning powder to shine!  We will make one mother’s day card, or you will be able to alter the card to someone else very special, whatever suits you.  The cost is only $10 with all materials included as well as the envelope that you can stamp to match your card.

Petal Prints

This card is an example of the type of card we will be making (my apologies for the poor lighting in the photo).  I made this card using the En Francais background, Boho Backgrounds and Petal Prints.  The Petal Prints flowers are embossed with white embossing powder on vellum cardstock.  It is really easy to cut out flowers on vellum paper!  I also used my new crop-a-dile to set the pretty in pink eyelet on the round tab punch ‘for my mother’, the words were stamped using Everyday Flexible Phrases.

I think everyone who comes to my class on Monday night will also get to play with my crop-a-dile.  It is sooo easy to use!!  Bookings are essential, so email me today.
