Swallowtail Birthday Girl

I have a lovely birthday card for you today which I'm sure any girl would love, I've used the Swallowtail stamp set as my main feature on the card stamping it on the alcohol ink coloured background. The background I made by using some alcohol inks and a blending tool. It's very effective, if you check out my UTUBE CHANNEL you will find the tutorial for both this card and also the alcohol inked background technique. I finally used a kaszazz stamp for the sentiment from the stamp set "Word Montage - Birthday Girl".

Hi Crafters, I have used one of my retired Stampin' Up!® stamp sets today, "Creative Elements".
 I just love this stamp set, I have used masking tape for the background using several different colours on this Triple Time Technique card. Then stamped some images onto the Triple layered background. I then stamped the flower image 3 times and fussy cut two of them, layered them with dimensionals and added some Wink of Stella on the petals that show. Added my sentiment and some butterflies.

Beachy Little Christmas

Hi Everyone, today I have used one of the new Christmas Stamp Sets and it's just perfect for our Australian Christmas, when it is our summer and very hot!! It is called "Beachy Little Christmas", don't you just love it. For my card I have sponged the background using my ink pads, a sponge brayer and some Eclipse Masking Tape. I then used the stamp set High Tide to add some stamped dimension for the water and the sand. I also used one image for my sun rays from the stamp set Wherever You Go. Finally I stamped my beach house image and cut it out and coloured it with some Chameleon Pencils, I just love these pencils they are so awesome to blend and very easy to use. Then I applied the beach house image to my card with dimensionals.

Santa Paws

Welcome back Crafters, I have been having a play with another one of the new Christmas Stamp Sets "Santa Paws". I think this one will be very popular for those Dog and Cat lovers and those that like something different when making your Christmas Cards. For my cards I have done some layering of cardstock and DSP with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Stampin' Dimensionals. I once again have used the new DSP Merry Music and added some Jewel Rhinestones and a Sentiment.

Christmas In The Making

Welcome Back Crafters, so it's September already. Today I have used the stamp set Christmas In The Making, I absolutely adore this set as it reminds me of the 1950's and 1960's fashion.

With my card I have used the new DSP Merry Music, I have coloured each image and cut them out before applying them to my card. I have used the Softly Falling Embossing Folder on one of the cards, the Layering Ovals and the Stitched Shapes Framelits on the other two. Added some Rhinestones and a sentiment from the same stamp set and have made my first lot of Christmas Cards for this year.

Moon Baby

For my card I put a mat of Colour Theory on my card, then I used a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and embossed it and cut out 3 squares using the Stitched Shapes Framelits so you could see the Colour Theory DSP. I then attached the three squares that I cut out on the card also and then using Stampin' Dimensionals applied my images. I coloured my images with pencils and finally added the sentiment to my card.
