Well Hello Everybody,

Well Winter is moving on, and I am almost counting till Spring, I love that September is t-shirt weather here, and we can guarantee an Indian Summer in August sometime to it means that from now there really is only 6 weeks of coolish weather.  Not bad at all.  Love living close to the coast for this reason, so temperate 🙂

So I made a card for you.

SANY3826

Yes a sunshiny card for the Aussie Craft Creative and Challenge site on Facebook that I am the creative director for 🙂 how funny is that??  During School Holidays we have a Challenge a Day to keep the mums sane while the kids run rampant!!

So this is an 8″x4″ card with a black panel on the front, covered with another panel that is joined with a border on one side and the sponged template of sunrays on the other.  A yellow half circle for the sun and lovely flowers and leaves.  The leaves are from a Kaisercraft set of dies, and the flowers are MFT Plentiful Petals.  The stamp from Kaszazz.

Hope you like it.

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone!!

Cold winter’s day here, my fingers are still frozen at 1pm, don’t think it will get warmer for me.

so I made a card for you.

Oh this one is a cute one, made for a Challenge on Facebook ACCC, Using a Stencil, I have almost covered the stencil up!!

Yes a 5″ x 5″ card with a designer paper that I have stitched around.  Then I have inked the edges of the card and the paper, and then used an open chicken wire stencil to get hexagonal blobs and spatter on my card with texture paste.  Lace and a thin strip of the patterned paper, a sentiment and a lovely garland of roses and foliage, I have spiralled the wires on the roses to add another texture.

Hope you like it!!

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

Have you been getting crafty?  I hope so, for some reason my mojo has come back to me, it was missing for several months and I could not get the motivation to make anything and now I am just pumping the cards out of my craft room 🙂

So here is a card for you 🙂

SANY3824

Well this one is for another Challenge on the ACCC site on Facebook, and I am really pleased with it.

This one was to use Newspaper or print paper, so I made my flowers with dictionary pages.  It is a 5″x5″ card, with a panel on front that I have used a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set to give a lacy border.  Designer paper on the front of that, my favourite ribbon treatment and bow.  The die cut flowers are from Heartfelt Creations with the addition of some roses that I have curled the stems of.  To finish I have used a Chipboard sentiment from A2Z Scraplets, it is just wonderful, thick cut and so easy just to paint this one 🙂

Hope you like it.

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everybody!!!

Oh my it is getting into Winter and it is brrrr cold inside and out.  Today is the Winter Solstice so that means that at least the days will be growing longer even if the temperature keeps dropping for a while.

So with this in mind I made a card to share with you all.

SANY3733

My favourite size card, in square 5 inch. Background is patterned paper with just a touch of Ranger Distress Ink in Vintage Photo around the edge.  Doily from Cheery Lynn is French Pastry.  Chipboard is the new thick cut, 1.8mm from A2Z Scraplets (my favourite chippie in the world) painted white and while wet spritzed with Glimmer Mist Black Cherry.  When dry the chipboard is covered fairly thickly with Glossy Accents.

Finished with a bow made from mesh ribbon and a handmade flower using a Carl Daisy Punch.   Stmped sentiment on the doily is from Stamp-It Australia.  Then a few bling rhinestones are added.

Hope you like it!!

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone!!

Oh you know every time I post I tell myself that I will post the next day too, and guess what?  It just never happens.

Well I am posting today!!

SANY3676

This is a card where I have used 3 types of patterned paper, it is so rare that I do that, I am not comfortable with mixing and matching patterns.  There are some people who have a real gift for it and I love the 6×6 paper pads of coordinating papers available, this is the only way I can do this.  And did you see, a picture from the papers saves me the stamp and colour routine.  I believe I have all colouring methods known to man in my craft room and the only ones I can even passably use are the watercolours, so hopeless with colour this girl.  No wonder I only wanted to draw in graphite, grey graphite at that!!

Well I hope you like it, I personally love the stitching and am really almost on first name terms with my sewing machine.

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

 

Did you all get out and vote today?? What about the Pirate Party, I kept seeing reference to it on Facebook and thought it was a joke.  And then there it was on the Senate paper, haha, so funny, never heard of them.  Maybe I am not informed 🙂

 

So after voting today I decided that it would be a craft and movie day, so I have watched Hope Floats with Sandra Bullock, Tara Road with Brenda Fricka, I love her, one of my favourite British Actresses, and now I am watching 8 Seconds, yep all about cowboys, the rodeo kind!! Yeeehaw!!

This is a pretty little card that my friend Kath Vinson shamed me into making.  She also made me realise that the background die and the filligree bits are a flower, DUH I thought it was just 2 uneven  scallop circles, should I be ashamed?

 

Thanks Kath, love your work teaching me how to do things!!

Also set my sewing machine up permanently so I can  sew on my cards whenever I want to.  Oh and look I used those lovely lovely Fleur de Lis rectangles and made a flower with dies from Quickutz, and there is that flower again.  The paper I have used is from Graphic 45, I am finding they are my favourite, love them 🙂

 

Thanks for calling, hope your day is good.

 

Hugs 😉

Hello Everyone,

 

Now just take a seat before you fall down, here I am again to post something pretty for you.

 

SANY2573

Awwww…. it is pretty and look at those 2 new baby teddies that are climbing that bird cage!! How clever are they??

 

Now this card is down with 2 different circle/frame dies from Marianne and I have used LR0141 to cut the largest scallop circle and then that left me a frame to use later!! Then the next size one is cut with the doily from LR0180 and have the doily to use in anothe project later.  The two that I have layered for this card are the negatives that would normally be thrown away (well by me anyway).  How cool is that?

 

All of this is dimensionally layered and each piece is inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.  The circle is the cutout from the frame that was cut (wow, 3 die cuts in one) and the scallop circle that I have stamped on is another die in this same set.  The corner flourishes come from the doily set. and the larger roses made with LR0145 as well as some roses from I am Roses, love them 🙂

 

Hope you like today’s offering, thanks for calling in, hope you have a great day!!

 

Hugs 🙂

 

Lauren
