Last one... Today

I have finished another card! This time it is for CAS-UAL Fridays

To participate I have to use Material... So i chose Ribbon, as I'm not a sewing fan.
Here is my entry...

Im in love with the new Neutrals colour- SMOKEY SLATE... and I think it goes well with Pool Party (Another fav of mine)

I used the Mosaic Madness stamp set as well as Sketched Birthday and Hearts a Flutter. I also used the Framelets Hearts a flutter and Bitty Banners and the Mosaic Embossing Folder and Punch. The ribbon is Pool Party and i finished it off with a Rhinestone!

Well thats all tonight- Im on my way out soon to a PARTY!

❤ ing the new In Colours!

Last night I attended a Launch Party run by some FANTASTIC Demonstrators from the Central Coast- It was great to see a hall FULL of ladies paper crafting. This year it wasn't all cards, there was 3D projects too- they were all beautiful (The demos and the projects!!!)

This is one of the 3 cards I was lucky enough to make

Today I decided to participate in the Friday Mashup Challenge, it's a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge and I chose...
Pearls, Ribbon, Flowers! Awesome!!!

I sat down and looked at my stamp sets and picked up the 5-way flower which is really beautiful! It can be used in so many ways...

Then I had to decide on the colours! That was easy- THE NEW IN-COLOURS!!!

Here is the flower after I had punched out the Scallops

Here is the completed flower and then my card- I love everything about it!

New Stamp sets and colours!!

Today I went and bought myself a NEW computer/ Stampin chair - Its beautiful.... My old one gave me lower back pain- not good when you are trying to be creative!!!

So today I have made 3 beautiful cards using new stamp sets and the new In colours... Here they are:

1) This card uses the Mosaic Madness stamp set and matching embossing folder and punch as well as the Express yourself Hostess stamp set. I paired all of this with Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush, Im pretty Happy with it!

2) This card uses the Mosaic Madness punch, embossing folder and stamp set, the butterfly is from the Fabulous you stamp set and the sentiment is from Express yourself. I love this card as it uses crumb cake, Crisp cantaloupe and Baked brown sugar.

3) This card uses the Positively Chevron background stamp and Chalk talk stamp set. I used Crumb Cake and Strawberry slush ink and card stock.

I am so happy with them all.

Thanks for stopping by!

That time of the Year!

I dont know what it is about a new Catalogue that gets me stamping again, it just does! Over the past couple of moths I have made the occasional card but I havent really sat down and had a good PLAY! Well today I have attempted a card for the Dynamic Duo colour chalenge. I love this one- use gray and any other colour!

As my readers would know my FAV SU colour is Pool Party so I paired the two together- I didn't have Basic Gray so I have used Smoky Slate- It is a bit lighter but still looks Fantastic (If i do say so!)

I like that I finally get to use the Beautifully Baroque stamp set I won at Convention! I stamped it using Illuminate ink- It gives a great shine- Not that you can see that in the pic!
The sentiment is from the Hello Lovely stamp set and the ribbon is Pool Party.
