Luxury Christmas

Barb

Again the use of the Joyful Christmas Stamp Set by Stampin. Up!, this time it was using both whisper white cardstock, don’t you love how well it looks embossed?

I used Vellum to stamp out the poinsettia twice then hand cut them and mount them one on top of the other, adding a few little pearls to the centre. I used Smoky Slate Cardstock for the base of the card and stamped the greeting in the Smoky Slate ink and added a touch of silver ribbon.

Enjoy and don’t forget this was a card taught in one of my classes on a Friday morning. Contact me if you would like to attend. Bye for now.

Joyful Golden Christmas

How stunning does this look, wouldn’t you like to receive a beautiful Christmas Card like this.

I used the Joyful Christmas stamp set and the versatile new print stamp set by Stampin’ Up! at one of my recent card making workshop. The colours of Cherry Cobbler and very vanilla Cardstock, with some embossing in gold to show of the beautiful poinsettia.

I will be showing you more sets using this stamp set as I found it very versatile to use to produce an array of different cards.

Should you want to have your own workshop and make a wonderful Christmas card, please contact me. Will be back soon.

Bye the Tide – one for the guys

Love Bye the Tide stamp set, however I found if missing from my desk, so had to put off making it until I surfaced again.  Does that happen to you crafters out there?  I bet it does, I can have a stamp in my hand and then it disappears from site, even though you know it’s on your desk.  I guess I need to tidy up a bit and not buy ever stamp set that Stampin’ Up! bring out.

I do hope you like it and if you’re wanting to attend any card making class, I hold mine on a Friday morning in the Creative Spirit Centre in Minchinbury.  Please contact me to make a reservation.

How cute is this card?

A friend I work with has a daughter living overseas and wanted a card for her with an aussie theme.

I secretly think Mum is missing her daughter and was trying to remind her that Australia is her home and as she is working in a Zoo overseas I thought this would be appropriate.

What do you think?

2013-10-25 08.04.49 This is one of the cards made recently in my Friday morning class, it is a spin off from a very beautiful card made by my very talented daughter and as I had always loved the way her card was made there was no way I could reproduce it.

I do hope you like it, should you want to purchase this card please contact me.

Step Christmas Card

Christmas is coming

I wanted to challenge my ladies who attend my Friday morning class with a really special Christmas card and as the first Friday of every month is Christmas cards and this was perfect. It was a lot of scoring, cutting and folding which they all enjoyed, this week I had
