Christmas workshop

Hi everyone
Well here are some projects I did at a couple of workshops recently...

A gift bag, gift tags and a card...

This gift bag above was so easypeazy to make we were shown this by Derek from Stampin' Up! Perth Regionals. One 12x12 sheet of DSP no cutting just folding and sticky strip. I chose to use Holiday Harmony DSP, Always Artichoke & Whisper White C/S. Holiday Wishes stampset. I created the flower using Bud Basics and the Pretties Kit and Purely Pomegranate and Always Artichoke Inks. I used Mellow Moss ribbon with antique brads for the handles.

These tags above were quite easy as well. The colours I used were Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi and Kraft. The stampsets I used Sanded, Fun and Fast Notes and Greetings Galore.

This card above we all made together the colours I used were Garden Green, Ruby Red, Whisper White for the C/S. Old Olive Ribbon. Old Olive, Garden Green, Ruby Red and Close to Cocoa Markers. Many Merry Messages, Sanded and Lovely as a Tree were the stampsets that were used. I used the sponge dauber to blend the colours on the tree after we used the markers to ink the stamp up. I love the effect it created and everyones tree turned out so different it was great.
thanks for looking & hope you are having a great week!

Baby Baby

Well Good Afternoon Everyone

I have some great news! My Dear Friend Daenushia and her Lovely Husband Gavin welcomed a little bundle of joy into the world at 4:23am Saturday the 8th of November. Little Abbey Jean came into the world at 7 pound 2 Ounces a healthy little thing and gorgeous to boot. Im so excited for my friend after a not too great pregnancy and altogether rough ride into the world she is finally here safe and well. Congratulations to all three!!! I have a picture of the little bundle so here she is not quite 2 days old...

She is sooo pretty and sooo tiny apparantly sleeps a whole lot as babys tend to do...
I made them a card aswell so here is my contribution to their happy event...

I had so much fun making this card I just knew exactly what I wanted and it came together well.
Daenushia was my Maid of Honour at my wedding and is a great friend to me. I just love her to bits and am overjoyed and wish them all the best *hugs*

Embossing Class

Hi there
Well I held my embossing class a couple of weeks ago. Had so much fun!!! We made these four cards...

The first one we made was this Cristmas Card

Colour Scheme Not Quite Navy, Handsome Hunter, Real Red and Bashful Blue
Stampsets Loads of Love & Accessories
Accessories Ribbon, Corner Rounder, Eyelets, Cropodile, Paper Piercer, Stampamajig
We coloured our little ute stamp with stampinwrite markers, stamped on whisper white then versamarked then embossed with clear embossing powder. You cant really see in the photo but the red ute is soo shiny!

The next card we did was this one below

Colour Scheme Close to Cocoa, Really Rust, More Mustard, Creamy Caramel
Stampsets Loads of Love, Loads of Love Accessories, Sanded
Accessories Round Tab Punch, Ribbon, Stazon, Aqua Painters, Water Colour Paper, Stampamajig
Stamped ute with Stazon then used versamark and clear embossing powder to emboss the ute dabbed spots of clolour on the utes body then dragged the colour with tthe aqua painters to make this cute little rust bucket. We then stamped friends for the long haul which I think suited it to a tea!

Thirdly we made this card

Colour Scheme Rose Red, Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose
Stampsets Always, Tres Chic
Accessories Ribbon, Spring Fling DSP, Stampamajig
We inked up our birdie stamp with the stampinwrite markers then clear embossed over the top. Super easy!!!

Last but not least this card (whereis the other three above are my own designs the one below is from the lovely Sarah Klass)

Colour Scheme Old Olive, Rose Red, Blush Blossom
Stampset Always
Ascessories Ribbon, Sponges
Embossed birdie with versamark and white embossing powder then coloured in the little flowers on the birdies body with Stampinwrite markers also sponged around the edges of the card.
This card was what started the whole embossing with markers class idea. We also stamped our envelopes to match our cards all in all is was a great night the girls loved the carrds they made and I think came aout a bit more confident with stamping and use of some of the tools and accessories which was fantastic.
