Cards - Dasher

This was one of those moments when I just had to make this as soon as I came up with the idea (waiting for my girls to get ready to go out.....) I used the Versa Marker and Cherry Cobbler maker to stamp the image. Then silver embossed the antlers. Love the idea of just embossing part of the stamped image.

Very simple stamping using Cherry Cobbler, a new In Colour.

Cards - Dasher

This is one of the new In Colours - Concord Crush.

Cards - Just Believe

Just Believe is another favourite in the new Catalogue. This technique is perfect for the silhouette stamps.

Cards - Just Believe

I made up this card for last Friday's workshop as the girls wanted me to demo the Big Shot. Vintage Wallpaper is the Embossing plate used as the background, then Beautiful Butterflies - embosslits make the butterflies.

Cards - Artistic Etchings

This my first try at this technique (I think it is called brayer resist) Love the effect. Colours are Baja Breeze, Basic Gray and Black.

Cards - Kimono Kids

Another of the cute new sets, Kimono Kids. The colours are Black, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise. I probably didn't wait long enough for the markers to dry before I applied Crystal Effects, as her dress appears a little smudged.

Cards - Sweetheart

Another favourite set .... well lets face it the Catalogue is full of them.

This works perfectly with the Heart Treat Cups, and lolly hearts. Colours are Bashful Blue, Pretty In Pink and Certainly Celery.

Cards - Make A Monster

The silver paper is simply kitchen Alfoil, run through the Big Shot... great effect. Colours are Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, Black and White (and a little Rose Red - but don't tell the boys).

Cards - Make A Monster

Love this set, really cute and versatile. Great for Boys.... Colours are Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy.

Cards - Every Moment

These are the beautiful Make N Takes we all made at the Stampin' Up! Perth Regionals on Saturday. When I saw the stamp set we were getting, I wasn't keen on it as it looks rather plain in the Catalogue, but just look at these gorgeous creations the Stampin Up team designed for us to make to showcase this stamp set. A great example of the versatility of a stamp set.
I just love them all .....

Cards - Artistic Etchings

This is the card I designed to demonstrate the Faux Metal technique at the Stampin' Up! Regionals on the weekend. I was rather nervous demonstrating it up on stage and only had 5 minutes to complete the card. So I prepared a lot of it at home, and really just demonstrated the Colour embossing and the Faux Metal Technique. I survived the demo and was rewarded with a voucher to choose a free stamp set.

Cards -Tree Trimmings

I designed this card as a sample for the Stampin' Up! Perth Regionals which was held on the weekend. The technique is Faux Metal.

Cards - Animal Stories

The Dots embossing folder was used for the background and the Hearts punch used for the corner detail. Colours are Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink. Word detail is embossed with white embossing powder.

Cards - Artistic Etchings

This is the card my Launch guests made last Wednesday 1st Sept.

Cards - Artistic Etchings

Newsprint DSP is the focal point of this card.

Cards - Artistic Etchings

Simple and Elegant in Night of Navy and Whisper White.

Cards - Cottage Garden

This layout is inspired by one I saw on Ilina Crouse's blog. My colours are Baja Breeze, Regal Rose, So Saffron and Choc Chip.

Card - Delightful Decorations

Made this one up on Friday arvo, between school pick up, dinner and going out to do a workshop. I got my first delivery of the new Catalogue orders.

The Embossing plate is Elegant Lines, not a christmas design, but I think it works very well like this. The Ornament is stamped with one of the stamps in Delightful Decorations and then punched out perfectly using the Ornament Punch. Colours are Old Olive and the new Cherry Cobbler.

Cards - Artistic Etchings

The background on the Top Note piece is using the Faux Tile technique. This is my new favourite set.

Cards - For Everything

I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get placement of all the different stamps I used from this set. The Stamp-a-ma-jig is a great tool to use and you can see the result in this card.

Cards - Great Friend

The background is made using the new Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder for the Big Shot.

Cards - Hello Again

The colours here are Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo and Old Olive

Cards - Lovely as a Tree

I made this card using the Mirror Image Technique

Card - Medallion

This is the card that each of my guests at my Saturday 4th Sept. launch made. The Medallion is embossed with clear embossing powder.

Card - Medallion

En Francis is the background stamp, then I have embossed the Medallion stamp. A very simple elegant Wedding Card.

Card - Sense of Time

The background card started off as Whisper white card stock. I inked it up, then printed the new woodgrain stamp. Newspaper print is one of our new DSP.

Card - Something Sweet

You can add anything into the Treat Cup. Very glad this set and the treat cups have been included in the current catalogue

Cards - Tree Trimmings

I embossed the centre decoration to add a little bling.

Cards - Upsy Daisy

Polished stone technique using Melon Mambo, Old Olive and Tangerine Tango.

Cards - Very Vintage Wheel

Flowers punched out with the 5 Petal Punch, then the small flowers are from the Boho Blossoms punch.
