Week 6

Card 1 - Sweet Little Girls

For week 6 we used lots of flowers! The colour in this photo isn't the best as it looks more cream rather than white. We used a combination of different cardstock and papers depending on the image from the 3D sheet. This one is a Reddy Die Cut 3D sheet from the Paintbox Poppets range.  I used a Spellbinders scalloped and standard circle and inked around the edges of all the papers.


For something different I put the happy birthday on with foam squares and glue in the middle to give it a wave effect. The stamp is from Just Rite.


This gorgeous ribbon border is from Marianne Designs and is part of the Creatables range. You can't really see the embossing aspect of it in this photo, but trust me it's gorgeous!! I'm having trouble getting these at the moment but hope to have some in stock soon.




Card 2 - Angled Easel Card

I loooove this card and it's so easy to make. I saw this idea online and decided to give it a go. It's just a square card with two score lines...how easy can you get?? I've used a Martha Stewart PAP punch set for the edges but if you don't have one you could just leave the edges plain.


A Just Rite Happy Birthday stamp layered onto lilac and purple card (attached with foam tape) holds the main image in place. Some flowers on the corner just add a bit of bling, and fill up an otherwise empty corner. I used purple card and mirri board behind the 3D image.


I coloured the flowers with a Copic marker to match the beautiful Jacaranda shade of purple used on the card.


The 3D is a Reddy Die cut  twin pack, and you get 4 different images on the sheet, plus a sheet full of the extra die cut pieces. All the images on this sheet are beautiful and I have them in stock at the moment.

August Challenge

Thank you to everyone who entered the August Challenge. The theme was "Beautiful Borders" and I think it was quite a challenge as we didn't get as many entries as usual. We did get some gorgeous cards though and the winner this time was Glenda with her stunning ivory and gold card using the Quickutz Die - Petite Petals. Congratulations Glenda, you now have a $20 voucher to spend in store. Here is Glenda's winning card The encouragement award this month goes to Jean Riches for her lovely use of the Marianne Die to create a fan. What a great idea! The die itself is gorgeous but teamed up with this beautiful Martha Stewart punched border and hand made flowers, it's beautiful. Well done Jean. This card was also made by Glenda and it takes the theme of borders out of the box, by using flowers as the border. Clever idea!
Rhonda's card using one of my favourite dies in turquoise and white, again with some lovely punched borders.
Dorothy's card is simply elega…
