Thank you!

Well, i'm back from Ally... :) It was fab this time round. And even though we had a smaller stand, I really loved this time... not that I didn't like last time... this time I think I saw lots more peeps than last and it wasn't so hot!

Anyhoo, I have gotten into the colour navy in a big way. I made this little card for my design team project this time using kaiser paper, glitteratti gems, felt flowers and of course Sugar and Spice stamps :D I used the wedding set... which seems rather random... but I love the little star in this set.

I stamped a small strip of graph paper with the teenie weenie star stamp using a momento ink called 'paris dusk' (a gorgeous navy blue) it really goes with alot of the papers right now, especially the mamma bushka range by kaiser which i've used here. I then layered two felt flowers from our new felties pack and joined together with a fabric covered brad. The patterned paper actually has tiny buttons printed on it but I covered them with the fairly flat glitteratti gems. I used alot but there are so many on the sheet that I didn't feel like I was being really friviolous ;)

Inside I made alittle matt to match the card front and then stamped 'thank you' from the same set onto it. In the set the stamp comes as one continious line, I chopped mine into two but you could keep it whole and ink up one side and stamp the 'thank' first and then clean well, ink up the 'you' and stamp to get the same effect.

This little project is especially dedicated to Marion and Jayne as a little 'thank-you' for a fabby weekend away...!
Hope you liked it :)

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
