Beachy Xmas & Bella & Friends

I made a selection of cards today using Beachy Xmas (retiring) and Bella & Friemds stamp sets.
Our doggy Rosie is so much like the dog in Bella & Friends.
These cards are for our neighbours, the Pet Resort our Rosie has stayed and the coffee shop we frequent on a Sunday morning.

Beachy Little Xmas

Cased also from Pinterest - Windy Ellard.
I used the Beachy Little Christmas stamp set to create this summery Xmas card. The tree was heat embossed using silver and gold EP, ornaments coloured using SU markers, The beautiful foil snowflakes from the Holiday catalogue and the tree was raised using dimentionals.
Such a lovely little stamp set, especially for us in Australia.

Happy Birthday Thinlit card

Sometimes what I call "clean and simple" cards are sometimes the nicest. ones. Using Thick Whisper white card base, layered with a piece of the Colour Theory DSP stack, stamped with the dots from the Timeless Texture stamp set, I ran the "Happy Birthday" Thinlit through the big shot using the Multi purpose Adhesive Sheet and Night of Navy cardstock. The adhesive sheets make the detailed thinlits so much easier to attach to your card bases. I finished the card off using a Basic Pearl to dot the I.

Coffee Cafe

I love this set in the 2017 catalogue. Having just returned from the USA and a lover of Starbucks, this set suits me perfectly. I cased this card from Pinterest, tweaked it a little. I used the emboss resist technique for the background. Using the stamp set and the matching Framelits to create the cups I layered them on to the card using dimentionals for the Latte cup to give some dimension. Enjoy your coffees.

Beach Little Christmas

A great little Aussie Christmas stamp set in the new Holiday catalogue is "Beachy Little Christmas"
I just love this set as its so different to all the snowflakes and winter scenes we're used to. Who needs snowflakes when you can have sea shells.....

Sugarplum Dreams

Sugarplum Dreams is a new Christmas stamp set in the Holiday catolgue
It's a take on The Nutcracker Ballet which our daughter Olivia has performed in over the years at various ballet schools and this year will be her first as a professional ballerina with Oklahoma City Ballet.
Therefore I just HAD to have this stamp set.

Coffee Cafe

Coffee Cafe set is a favourite in my collection. Those who know me, know I love my coffee, so this set will get a lot of use. I cased the catty for 2 cards and decided on an Iced Coffee for the 3rd card. I'll be running a stamp-a-stack with these cards in September.
