Four Seasons

Hi, I bought a lovely frame from Spotlight a few months ago, and finally got around to making something to put in it. I decided to go with the seasons theme, my inspiration came from a lovely card I saw on Splitcoast http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1386164?si=SUO

The framed Art has found a home in my craft room, It was fun to make and looks rather nice I must say!

Stamps Season of friendship (US Catalogue) and Window Dressing (Level 3 Hostess Benefit in Australian Catalogue)

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Glorious Green, Green Galore, Garden Green, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Sahara Sand,Summer Sun, Pacific Point and Stazon Jet Black.

I hope you all enjoy looking at my framed art as much as I did making it and that I have inspired someone out there to have a go at making one for themselves or for a gift.

Easy Xmas Card

Hi, Today I have an easy Christmas card to show you. I made it up quickly a couple of nights ago after spending hours on another more complex card that I didn't like in the end. This one just has a bit of ribbon, punchouts and cardstock. Instead of using a Chocolate chip ornament punchout I used the Ornament punch on the Merry Moments DSP so it exposed the Chocolate Chip CS behind. For a simple card I think it looks rather nice.
Stamps: Seasonal Wishes (retired).
Ink: Chocolate Chip.
Papers: Merry Moments DSP (US Catalogue), Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Whisper White CS.
Ribbon: Old Olive 1/4" and 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon.
Punches: Large Oval, Scallop Oval (from Australian Spring Mini), Scallop Edge and Ornament (US Christmas Mini) punches. I also used a handheld punch to make the holes on the scallop edge.
Adhesives: Stampin' Dimensionals, Snail and Mini Glue Dots.

Hi, I'm back with a card I made for my niece, she is turning one on Sunday. I chose the Wild About You and Wow Flowers stamp sets for this one, the giraffe is very cute, been a girl I had to use pink so I chose Pretty in Pink and Pink Pirouette CS as well as Whisper White and the Pink Pirouette DSP, I added some glitter to the giraffe and the Number one (the Number one is non Stampin'Up!) The scallop oval Punch is from the Australian spring Mini as well as the pink flower brad the felt flower is from the Accents & Elements Flower Fusion Too kit, The Ink I used is Pretty in Pink. I also used the eyelet border punch. I think it turned out quite nice.
