Festival Prints - Petite Pairs

A patchwork card using the new "Festival Prints" DSP paper stack in the
Holiday mini catalogue.
DSP was attached to the Lucky Limeade cardstock 
and embossed with the Square Lattice EF.
Very little stamping on this one, just the "Petite Pairs" stamp set.

My birthday girl.

Oliva celebrates her 15th birthday on Wednesday.
We had early celebrations on the weekend.
Livy and I went to the Sydney Theatre to see the
WA Ballet Company perform "Neon Lights"
afterwards we walked around the docks at Walsh Bay
where "Dance Academy" is filmed. 
Livy so enjoyed the afternoon and evening, soaking up 
the atmosphere, so excited to be where her favourite
show is filmed and to see a fantastic performance.

Happy Birthday gorgeous girl,
Congratulations on your first solo performance
at the Swanse Eisteddfod and getting 2nd place.
Congratulations also for winning the "Senior Scholarship"
with GCSDance this year.
We are so proud of you.

More Daydream Medallions

  Another card using the "Daydream Medallions" stamp set.
I've also used the new In Colours, Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple.
The "Floral Framelits" have been used to cut the two medallions.
"Merry & Type" features in the centre of the medallions.
"Perfect Polka Dot" EF has been used for a background effect.
Embellished with diamontes and raised with dimentionals completes this card.
Matt came into my craft room and he thought it was a
25th Wedding Anniversary card!  
The use of different colours and maybe a "congratulations"
somewhere and there you have an Anniversary card.

Daydream Medallions

"Daydream Medallions" is a stamp set that I received at Convention
this year.  The "Floral Framelits" is a perfect match with this stamp set.
There are multiple medallion stamps in the set 
ranging in various sizes.
I embossed the Soft Suede piece of cardstock with the "Lacy Brocade" EF.
I then stamped the largest medallion, then lined up the next largest and stamped
it inside the first, both in Crumb Cake ink.
I then stamped the christmas image from "Perfect Punches" in 
"Gumball Green" and "Raspberry Ripple" inks.
I punched the Gumball Green image with the scallop circle punch and
Raspberry Ripple  image with the 1 3/8" circle punch.
Embellished with Perals and the new 1cm satin stitched ribbon
finishes off this card nicely.

Artistic Etchings - Triple Time Stamping

Triple Time Stamping is a bit of a craze at the moment.
I cased this card style from Marelle Taylor 
who cased it from

I've used "Artistic Etchings", "Petite Pairs" and a new

Wrapped Bakers Twine around the top 2 layers, threaded

Really like the way this card came together.

Birthday Books

Perpetual Birthday Books.
Class on Saturday was a huge success.
Here are 4 of the 5 books made on the day.
(One already delivered to rightful owner).
Now the ladies just have to finish off embellishing
their books as they desire.
Best thing is I was able to do the binding without
the engineer hubby.
