Hi all! Yup, I've been away for over a month now. That silly cold/flu has finally let me have energy to stamp. The worse part of it all was that I was just starting to feel horrible just as I was planning my last workshop! Thanks to all who came, I hope you enjoyed yourself. It was so much fun. Check back for the next few dates for workshops and classes.

So for now I'll show off a few cards I demonstrated at the workshop:

The water coloured card, I love using our watercolour wonder crayons! Have you ever tried using the blender pen to capture the colour off the end of the crayon and then colouring in your image? It creates a different effect instead of just colouring in. Try it!

Stamps: Fun and Fast Notes
Ink: Black Stazon
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Watercolour paper, Sale-A-Bration Delicate Dots DSP
Accessories: Kiwi Kiss striped grosgrain ribbon, Word window punch, Watercolour Wonder Crayons, Stampin' Dimensionals, Vintage brads, corner rounder, blender pens

The next card is our make-n-take. Can you notice I've taken to clipping the ribbon? I think the left card needs the ribbon dressed up a bit before I send it out for Mother's Day.

Stamps: Petal Pizazz, All Holidays
Ink: Apricot Appeal, More Mustard, Basic Black, Certainly Celery
Paper: Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Vellum
Accessories: Sale-A-Bration So Saffron grosgrain ribbon

New Stuff!

February 11, 2009
My new box of supplies arrived earlier today. Unfortunately with being at work all day and my dear husband down with a bad cold, that box has been tormenting me! Finally about an hour ago I was able to take everything out of the box and ooh and awe over some of Stampin' Up!'s new products ( I wish I could own everything!).

Just a reminder, I'm having a Sale-A-Bration / Mystery Hostess workshop this Sunday. Check out my Classes and Workshop page for all the details. You will have the chance to see some of the new product in action and have the chance to earn or win some of it for yourself!

Bright colours!

February 09, 2009 in
These colours were inspired from then ones I tend to use a lot at my daytime away from home job, highlighting the most important need-my-attention-right-away tasks. I'm not one for bright colour combos, but I might have to try this one again!

The Pumpkin Pie strip is dry embossed using Stampin' Up!'s classy brass seeing dots template. Dry embossing is a great way to add a little dimension to your card. You could even use the new texturz plates with the Bigshot to create the same effect!

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes, All Holidays
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Basic Black
Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Whisper White
Accessories: Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, clips assortment, Seeing Spots Classy Brass Template
