Beautiful You

I used Beautiful You for this one.

I stamped the chair from Mediterranean Moments,
then roughly cut a mask.

I then got the stampa ma jig out so I could position the lady with her hand on the chair.
I know it looks a bit like she's stood in the plant pot!


I gently watercoloured the image and layered it up with coordinatling card.

Have a Beautiful You Sunday

Supersized

Here's a supersized 8" x 8" card

I don't often make large cards due to postage costs,
but this one's being hand delivered and it suited the paper
I wanted to use the chair from Seasonal Layers,
chose the Wood Textured paper as background,
cut leaves from crumb cake and inked in crumb cake, added orange to edges.
The grass was crumb cake inked with green, then punched with an old punch.
I love the dinky drink on the chair arm, and a stitched oval sentiment finished the scene.

Have a SUPER Saturday!

Stamps to sparkly paper

I had a number of cards to make, and not much time,
so while I had this lovely paper out, I decided to add some stamping,
to make a birthday card

I love the stitched shapes framelits, and the oval made a nice frame for the
Pretty Label Punch, and the lush ribbon adds luxury.

Have a Fantastic Friday

Little Ted

For the friend that loves Teddy Bears,
this was the card I made from me


I love that lattice embossing folder, layered up with squares,
decoupaged the bear, and some sparkly ribbon.
The stamp is a Kodomo Inc that was kindly gifted to me.

Have a Teddytastic Tuesday!

Celebrate with Year of Cheer

I made this for a team member who celebrated her
Stampin' Up! Anniversary.

It came together very quickly ( a godsend as I was short of time),
by using the pretty Speciality paper from the winter catalogue,
added some silver foil, silver ribbon et voila!

Have a Merry Monday!

Possible Linda Kasparian....

Pretty Poodle

Morning!

Whizzzzzzzzing by to share a couple of cards
courtesy of Linda Kasparian
Cute poodle, and love the ripple embossing folder....even better in real life


The top one uses Fancy Foil, simply topped with die cut greeting,
cards don't have to be complicated...........
and as you can see I made some extra pooches needing good homes....

Have a Fantastic Friday!

October Rudolph Day Challenge

Stubbornly refuse to miss the
Rudolph Day Challenge

DESPITE
technology problems!

Isn't it always the way, that when you have a few spare minutes....
technology lets you down!

We have a very very poor signal here, but I also had problems
seeing the pictures on Blogger.

BUT, with some extra time in bed, I googled it......well, when you can't sleep.....
and decided to turn off my router and turn it back on again.
Hooray....it worked!

How many times have you tried patches, fixes, hours of fretting and fuming,
only to find the switch off and switch on normally does the trick?!!!

Anyhoooooo
Rant over!

Made a card at club, using the cute bird stamp,
attempted to colour it like a Robin,
die cut and placed on mirror card at a jaunty angle.

Trouble is, my jaunty angle is so jaunty you can't really see it!
The mirror card doesn't photo well either!

Hey Ho
It's been fun chatting with you,
and wishing you a
HAPPY RUDOLPH DAY!

lots of love

Nature Sings

Here's some masculine cards
from a set in the main catalogue that could easily be overlooked

Stampin' Up!'s "Nature Sings"


It could be for christmas, or any other time in my book.
Team it up with wood DSP
or the "Sheet Music" background stamp

I love the detail

Have a great weekend

Teddy Bears

Hiya
I made this for a friend who is obsessed  loves teddies :)

Another kind friend gave me the lovely wooden stamp.

I added some subtle colour, and a few bits of decoupage
(I made my own by stamping extra and fussy cutting)

I Hope you enjoyed your weekend

Reflections

I thought I'd shared this already,
but I can't find it, so here goes....

This was a class I did on the "Reflection" or "Mirror" technique

You can use lots of things to stamp on to make the mirror image,
here's a few:
stamp-a-ma-jig; actetate; clear packaging; the back of a clear stamp (flat side);
acrylic block.
My favourite is the stamp-a-ma-jig



Use sticky notes to create masks


note the goose facing the other way.....done by using s-a-m-j and filling 
in any missing detail with a fine liner

Use scrap paper to mask off areas for landscapes etc



It's a bit faint but the trees are 'reflected' in the 'water'


Lastly in an actual mirror
(you may have seen this image a while back)


They really enjoyed experimenting with the various methods,
hope you enjoyed looking too!
