Happy Halloween

I hope everyone had a fun Halloween.  This was the first year my kids went Trick or Treating … very cute!

These were the treats I made for our Trick or Treaters and friends.


I had a really old cobweb stamp, (like at least 15 years!), that I used to stamp in Staz On Black on SU cellophane bags.  I then was inspired by Jayne Mercer here, with the railway track like a fence and the punches used to make a scary face on the pumpkin, and Jenn here (A New Ink on Life), with the oval punches for my pumpkin.  Awesome ideas!  Thanks, ladies 🙂


I used Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie, Close to Cocoa and black cardstock.  I sponged the edges of my Pumpkin Pie oval punches with Close to Cocoa ink.  I rolled the Right on Track wheel across the Elegant Eggplant, stamped the cobweb on the side and stuck my pumpkin on top.  I love the Halloween colours!


Thanks for looking 🙂

Kristina Werner’s Colour Challenge #9

Wow! I have just completed my first ever Kristina Werner colour challenge! Every week Kristina puts up a colour challenge and this week’s challenge was based upon the picture above. I love Kristina’s blog, she does the best videos! You really must visit Kristina here.

The colours we had to use for our colour challenge were real red, pumpkin pie, so saffron, old olive and tempting turquoise (have you ever noticed how Stampin’ Up! Colours always begin their colour name with the same letter?!!?)

This is the card I came up with … and it was a challenge! Although it was great to have a driving challenge behind a birthday card for a special friend living in London … now I have to get this card in the mail!

This is a close up of my Boho Backgrounds stamp … it is layered with dimensionals and looks lovely with the square red rhinestone centre. I really love the colour combo I’ve used on this part of my card – real red, pumpkin pie and old olive – they look great together, don’t you think?

I also used our our So Saffron DSP that you can only purchase until 31 May 2008 (in Australia, from me in Parklea!) with Stampin’ Up!’s Palette o’ Prints promotion. I love the spots!

Have a great day and thanks for looking 🙂

Reminder … stamping night this Friday


Just a reminder … my FREE card & scrap night is on Friday 28 March 2008 from 8.00pm, for any who are interested in coming along.

Remember … this is an “up to you” night. It is a night to work on your own creations. You need to bring along your own cardstock, adhesives, embellishments etc and any of your latest purchases you haven’t yet used.

You are welcome to also use any of my stamp sets, ink pads or punches, if you like. I will supply a seat, some lollies (perhaps some chocolate Easter eggs if you can stomach the sight of them …) and coffee/tea/cold drinks.

Book some time in your diary for YOU now and come along. Bookings essential (simply so I can organise table space for everyone).

If you are short on ideas, then check out these two cards. I made these cards the other night for my two gorgeous Godsons in Brisbane … Corey turned 14 and Zayd turned 2 … brothers that are a day and 12 years apart! Very special men deserve very special cards 🙂
