Fourth Birthday

What a great party!  Yesterday my daughter and I went to our neighbours’ daughter’s fourth birthday party.  It was the first time we had met a lot of their family and what great fun they all were.  It was a much later night than expected!  This is the birthday card I made for Jayda …

Do you like the way I’ve done the cut-in corners?  Well, thanks to a tip from Alisa Tilsner, I’ve used the slit punch for this corner effect.  Very cool!!  Thanks Alisa!  And, did you know as of Monday 31 March 2008, you won’t be able to buy from Stampin’ Up! the Fresh Fillers background stamps or the Flirty wide pink ribbon I’ve used.  They end with the end of the old catalogue and the Summer mini catalogue.  If you’d like to order any of these products, do so now or forever hold your peace 🙂

Have a great weekend! 

Last week, last chance …

Well, two catalogues come to an end on 31 March 2008. The 2007-2008 Idea Book & Catalogue comes to an end. And the Summer Mini Catalogue also comes to an end.
I made this card using the Long-time Friend stamp set and the Flirty ribbon from the Summer Mini Catalogue (I just love Flirty ribbon and highly recommend it).
To show you how different the same image from that stamp set can look, for the card below, I stamped the background with the Floral background stamp (fortunately, Floral has not retired).

This is your last chance to order from both of these beautiful catalogues. From 1 April 2008 the 2008-2009 Idea Book & Catalogue will be current. If you would like to place an order, please check to make sure what you want to order is still in stock here, and email me at rachel.capps@yahoo.com.au before 31 March 2008.

Make and Take for Michele’s first workshop party

My dear friend, Michele, who has also joined me with Stampin’ Up! is having her first workshop tomorrow night (Friday). It is going to be an exciting night with lots of people coming! This is the make and take we are going to do for everyone …

Bloomin with Happiness

I think the colours Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip look really lovely together. What do you think?

Stamp-A-Stack – Birthday cards

Who wants to be organised for some birthday cards this year? Well, then, it’s Stamp-A-Stack time!

What is a Stamp-A-Stack, you ask? Well, simply, we sit down and make a stack of 10 cards, 5 of 2 different designs.

How much will that cost? Well, how much do you pay for a handmade card at a card shop? $8-$10 or thereabouts? each card?? Well, for your very OWN handmade creations that are clearly more special to your friends and family than someone else’s handmade creations … it will cost only $20 for 10 cards including all materials. An optional $3.00 extra is payable if you would like lovely envelopes to go with your cards that you can stamp to coordinate with the cards you have made.

Interested? Well, book Monday 25 February 2008 into your calendar … 7.30pm at my place, 7 Parklea Drive, Parklea.

This is one of the cards we will be making …

Bud Basics Birthday

The design of this card is completely inspired by Marelle Taylor, one very talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. Thanks, Marelle!

And this is the other card … something completely different!

Birthday Best

Bookings for my classes are essential.

Please contact me no later than Saturday 23rd February 2008 to ensure your place. Looking forward to seeing you at my place!

If you cannot make it, then why not organise a minimum of 4 people together (including yourself) and book me to visit your home for a personalised card making class? Contact me today to arrange a date!

Would you like to come but your diary is already booked that night? Well, subscribe to my blog to have your finger on the pulse and know when the next class you might like to attend is on. Thanks for looking!

PS. this is a card I considered for the SAS, but I think it would be a late night cutting out the cupcake five times … what do you think?

Birthday Best

So many thank you cards!

You can always tell when the new year has settled in … life gets busier. So, with a few workshops done recently and a few more on the way, here are some more thank you cards I have made for my hostesses. The card below uses the stamp set, Merci, which is one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp sets you can only receive if you place an order over $100 BEFORE 29 FEBRUARY 2008.

Time is counting down for these sets to be gone forever … so if you love it and want it, order today!

The gorgeous Flirty pink ribbon and stunning chocolate/vanilla spotted paper will also be gone soon, but you have until 31 March 2008 to place your orders for them. A good reminder for your diary, the Summer Mini Catalogue ends next month!

Merci

I love the next stamp set. Simply Said is one of my favourites. I’m also loving the colours Rose Red and Regal Rose at the moment … don’t you agree, they look great with Certainly Celery? And watch out for those Dazzling Diamonds … they’re ever present in my cards 🙂

Simply Said

Thank you cards for my hostesses …

The afternoon sun has distorted the colour of these cards slightly, so my apologies. If I waited until tomorrow morning to take the photos, I don’t think this post would go to air!

These are a few cards I am sending to my hostesses holding workshops for me in the near future. I’ve been having fun with my ‘Simply Said’ Stampin’ Up! stamp set. Enjoy!

Simply Said Thank you

I also used my trusty Spring Flowers punch for this card.

Simply Said Thank you

I added some of our Flirty ribbon here from the current Summer Mini Catalogue.

Simply Said Thank you

This is a ‘cased’ card from Jayne Mercer (thx!). I think this is a great card to make and take because you have a chance to play with the Stampin’ Up! jumbo wheel, use a white gel pen, add some ribbon and even paper pierce some decorative corners to add dimension. What do you think? I’d like to try this card with Perfect Plum and Pale Plum too …

Bud Basics Thank You

This is such an easy card to make! A Bud Basics card too, instead of Simply Said.  I have only used 2 stamp sets, 3 ink pads and whisper white cardstock … whala! (oh, and my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig!)

Simply Said Thank you

This card was the last make and take for all my guests at my Sale-A-Bration Launch party last week. My own original design completely! Remember, you too can take advantage of the great Sale-A-Bration promotion with me … you just have to place an order with me (and pay before) that is $100 or more 29 February 2008. No limits on the number of sets you can earn for FREE, every $100 spent earns you 1 FREE Sale-A-Bration set!! Contact me today 🙂

A different kind of “Friday night in”

Last night I did my first ever Cyberstamp with The INKlings group that I am a part of. There were 10 of us online last night, that was great! Our talented uplines set us 4 challenges to complete so the pressure was on the the creative juices forced to flow!

These were my efforts:

FIRST CHALLENGE

To complete a gift tag of any kind in 10 minutes … phew!

10 min Gift Tag

Apologies for the poor lighting for the photo. How simple was this card? Just Whisper White and Lovely Lilac cardstock, Birthday Best stamp set and Basic Black ink with a colour in with the Lovely Lilac marker pen was almost all that was needed. To finish the card off I used my trusty 2-way glue pen with Dazzling Diamonds glitter … bling!

SECOND CHALLENGE

This was a sketch challenge. Of course, my first! What a great idea though … we all followed the sketch and were to use patterned paper on the card and choose our colour scheme from the patterned paper. I used Loves Me DSP from the Summer Mini Catalogue … I’ve been meaning to do a baby card for so long!

Baby Boy!

THIRD CHALLENGE

Now this was really a challenge … a colour challenge. We had to create a card from the the colours: Vintage Violet, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip and Cool Carribean. I didn’t have any Cool Carribean and substituted it with Bashful Blue. Would you have picked this colour scheme?

Friends

FOURTH CHALLENGE

Our last challenge was reverse masking … and now I have finished it!
