Happy Mothers Day and TST #64

Good afternoon, today I have a quick post to share with you. I have been busy making Mothers day cards to sell in my boxes at school and at the gym, but the last two days I have been working on my own mum’s mothers day card. For this I used the sketch over at Try Stampin on Tuesday. I don’t often make square cards but it was nice doing something different. Here is the sketch:

I have used Rose Red as my base colour and then used Flirtatious specialty paper and a strip of So Saffron paper stack as my patterned paper. For the stamp set I have used Greenhouse Garden in So Saffron and Soft Suede I got my colour combo from the Colour Coach. I have added some thread around the front and added two little tags to finish off the sentiment I had a bit of trouble finding these words small enough to fit in the tag and also most sayings, seem to say “for you”, not “to you”. Anyway I found this one on the stamp set Under the Big Top. I used my markers to ink up only these two words, then punched it out. For the 3-D flower I cut out 4 more flowers and sprayed them with water and scrunched them up. I used a brad for the centre.

Here is my card:

Try Stampin’ On Tuesday and Sneak Peek

Good Afternoon,

It is a very windy day outside today and from what I hear a lot of NZ has had snow this morning, very exciting for them.

For today’s card I have done a sketch challenge for Try Stampin’ On Tuesday. At first I had no idea what I would do and then I thought why not use one of my new stamp sets (to be released on September 1st) and use my heat and stick powder with some beautiful glitter that I have had for a while now but have not used it. I love the out come and no this is not my first Christmas card for the year, but I can’t show you the other one just yet. I have used my border punch around the outside of the oval and cut nicks in it so I could bend it around the oval.

Now before you see the card, some of you may think this is not a sneak peek as I’m showing you the whole card, but I figured since you cant see the whole images I can call it a sneak peek.

Here is the sketch:

Try Stampin On Tuesday #8

Good morning, its very early here, but the kids are up and the day has started. Today I have this weeks Try Stampin On Tuesday challenge. It is very similar to one we had a few weeks ago, but that’s ok it was fun.

For this card I have only used a couple of colours, white, Marina Mist and a touch of black. Isn’t that Marina Mist a stunning colour. I have used black for the brads and sentiment.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

I changed the sketch slightly but that is because the sentiment just didn’t fit above the ribbon bow. Other than that nothing is different. I have used a picture stamp over the sentiment and sponged all the edges as a finishing touch. I love sponging and not many of my cards finish without any on them. I did take a photo of the inside but the photo didn’t turn out so I will post that later.

Just Add Ink #55

Good evening, it has been one very hot day today, although it did start out as a miserable foggy morning. We even had some rain so the saying four seasons in one day really fits today.

My husband arrived home nice and early tonight and gave me a lovely red rose wrapped in a gorgeous red material, the funny thing is I had also been to the same shop and brought the same red rose for him. the only difference is he brought one in a lovely vase.

I managed to make time today to make my husband a valentines card, and since this weeks theme for Just Add Ink is Just Add Love then this fits perfectly.

Here is my card:

DSC09083

I have stamped on the background of the Pear Pizzazz with the same colour to give it body with the new Bliss stamp set. I have also stamped on the hearts with the same set but in white. I have stitched the edge of the hearts to finish them off. I have sponged with pear pizzazz on the Top Note Die to blend into the background. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments and I have used twine to finish it off.

And the inside:

Just For You

First of all, my heart goes out to anyone who knows of the men or their family down in the mine, it’s a real sad time here in New Zealand.

Wow it has been nearly a week since I last posted, sorry about that it has been a very busy few weeks and one day just rolls into the next. On an exciting note we are finally getting our back yard started tomorrow, we have a terrible slope and we are putting in a retaining wall to try and get some of that land back. we are also having our front yard dug out too. I have been waiting for over a year for this to happen so in a way it’s really exciting and in a way I don’t want to get too excited in case it doesn’t happen. I do have to say I have a new builder doing it and he is great, excellent with communication and really enthusiastic about what we can do.

For todays post I have a card I made in a class with Jacque but I have re-designed it a bit. I have used the DSP Bella Rose (retired) I love this paper. the hand bags are made from punches and so is the handle and buckles. I have given the right hand side a torn effect just to be different. You know what I have just realised apart from the sentiment on the front and a little picture in the centre there is no stamping on this card.

I have added this photo because the first one is a bit blurry.
