More Vintage Vogue!!

This would have to be my favourite stamp set. I just love all the stamps in this set, and the new colours Rich Razzleberry and Soft Suede.

I sat up till all hours last night and made some more cards using this stamp set.

This one was made using the Designer Paper Series - Cottage Wall and Olive Green card stock. I used the Rich Razzleberry ribbon and a small silver brad.

Once again I used the Designer Series Paper - Cottage Wall, and the Rich Razzleberry card stock and ribbon. The bird cage stamp was from the Sale.a.bration catalogue - Happy Moments and the flourish from the Scribble This stamp set.

I used the Soft Suede ink.

Vintage Vogue

I am just loving the new products in the new Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue.

I made this card using the new Vintage Vogue stamp set. This set is just awesome. The clear mounted stamps are good to use and it is easy to see exactly where you are stamping.

I used Soft Suede, Whisper White and Old Olive card stock and Soft Suede and Melon Mambo inks.

All three new colours in the new mini seem to work really well together.

Happy Birthday

It was my younger brother's birthday yesterday. His is into joinery and building so I used this stamp in my pre Stamp'n Up days stash.
I stamped it in black versa mark ink on water colour paper and painted it using various stamp'n up inks.
I used the new card colour, soft suede and papers from the 'Bella Bleu' designer paper series.
I have also used the tag punches and photo corner punch.

Happy Easter

I hope everyone is enjoying the Easter Break. It is wonderful having a few days to relax.

I woke up this morning and the girls had been out in the craft room making cards. They had been so quiet I wasn't sure what they had been up to.. What a pleasant surrprise when I saw what they had done.

Courtney (aged 7) made this card using the some of my punches. She made the elephant's ears using the buterfly punch and the bush with the circle scallop and cut out an owl from the "Good Morning Sunshine" designer paper.

She decorated the inside of card with clouds, a sun, bushes and cut out her mountains.

Ashleigh is into designing her own fashions and made an outfit for her selection of patterned papers and decorated it as above.

What an awesome job they did. I was so proud of them.
