Spiral Spins Stamp set

Another sneak peak from the new Occasionals Catty.
This set reminds me of my childhood. When I was young I had a game/toy called a Spirograph. I'd spend hours in the school holidays making circular designs with multiple pen colours. Now I just need the stampset and some ink pads. I cased the design of my card from my downline Margaret.

Bring on the Cake

Another sneak peak of Sale-a-bration DSP and Retro washi tape form the new Occasional catalogue.

Another sneak peak from the new Occasional and Sale-a-bration catalogues.

Freshly Made Sketch Challenge 118

Peaceful Petals

Another sneaky peak at this gorgeous new stamp set, DSP and a new Embossing folder
from the new catalogues.

Lovely as a Tree - Reflection. Card

Lovely as a Tree is one of my most favourite stamp sets, I hope it never retires.
I stamped the tree in Basic Black, with an aqua painter I coloured the tree, landscape and the water.
I punched a circle out and used it as a mask to form a full moon and then sponged the sky.

Tea Party & Eastern Elegance DSP

I made this card today for my M-I-L's birthday at the end of the month.
1. I've inked up the "Tea Party" stampset with SU markers.
2. Embossed w/white card with the "Fancy Fan" EF.
3. I layered Eastern Elegance DSP on to Crushed Curry cardstock.
4. I cut a paper doilie in half and lightly sponged it with Coastal Cabana ink.
5. Using the oval Framelits I've cut the stamped image and a slightly larger oval out, layered them together and attached using dimentionals.
6. I also sponged edges and attached some Coastal Cabana ruffled ribbon to finish off the card.

Perfect Blend

A nice little fridge magnet calendar, sure beats those Real Estate ones!
I covered some Very Vanilla cardstock with strips of DSP then cut it out using the Top Note die.
I stamped the coffee mug in Baked Brown Sugar (my most favourite colour at the moment).
I then re stamped the coffee mug and cut out the middle section and stamped the quote saying that I will take over the world with enough coffee!!!!!

The Open Sea - notepad

I made this notepad to go with my brother's birthday card.
I washed some Midnight Muse across the Natural White cardstock. I then stamped the anchor, compass and the globe in Versamark and Baked Brown Sugar and clear embossed them. The sailing boat I coloured with SU markers. Alphabet die (r) for the "notes" and Chrystal effects over the top to give it a nice shiny glossy look.

The Open Sea

This is the card I've made for my brother's birthday.
Ian is a lover of the water and loves his sailing.
He was asked to sail in the Sydney to Hobart this year but for various reasons it wasn't possible.
I hope he gets the opportunity again and is able to do it, what a great experience it would be.
