Interlocking Card

Here is another creation from from the online class I did with Heather Summers (see here for details). It's called an interlocking card.

I used Kraft, Vanilla and Rich Razzleberry cardstock. The Kraft cardstock and the bird has been stamped with the flowers from the Vintage Vogue Stamp Set. I used the Polka Dot Embossing Folder for the centre mat.

The trickiest part of doing these cards is making sure the squares all fit together.

Mother's Day Card

I was playing with the flowers I had made here and decided to try them in vellum. I liked the way it turned out so decided to use it for a Mother's Day card. (Apologies for the photo quality, it was taken late in the day.)

I sponged the edges of the vellum scallop circles with Rich Razzleberry. I added the flower to a Top Note cut using the Big Shot from Whisper White cardstock and embossed using the polka dot embossing folder on the lower half.

I can't believe I actually have my Mother's Day card made well before Mother's Day.

On another note, I had so much fun this afternoon catching up with my card making buddy - thanks Debbie, check out her gorgeous work here.

Another Fifth Avenue Floral Set

Whilst I had my Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp Set out I decided to experiment with the new colour cardstock.

I stamped the flowers in Versamark and then embossed with White Embossing Powder. The border was done with a white gel pen and I finished them off by stamping the sentiment in the same colour as the cardstock.

Mini Catalogue Open House Event

I had an Open House this Saturday for the new Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue. Thank you to all the lovely ladies that came to enjoy demonstrations and make & takes with all the new products.

This was one of the make & take's. I think I am going to like this Robot dude, he is perfect for kids and male cards. I added some nuts on the inside to tie it all together. The nuts on the Kraft card is stamped with versamark. I love this colour combination for male cards.

This was another of the make & takes - a matching 3 x 3 card and pillow box.

The other make & take was the medallion card (from a previous post).

These were the packets of ribbon I made for my share packs, they used so many of the new products - Big Shot, Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Top Note Die, the Bird Punch, along with the new cardstock colours and DSP.

Hope you have had a lovely weekend.

Fifth Avenue Floral Revisited

Firstly on a non-stamping note - I have decided that I really do not like ironing sheets - particularly queen size sheets and doonas (after spending the last 3 hours ironing them). I really dislike ironing, I am someone who even tries to avoid buying clothes that need to be ironed, but unfortunately I got some really nice 1000 thread sheets for half price, but they need to be ironed. Anyone got any tips, maybe I should investigate dry cleaners!!!

Onto stamping matters (luckily I had made these last night). I have been doing an online stamp class with the talented Heather Summers (see details of her class here or see her blog here) and was excited to get the chance to pull out my Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp Set again to create these little cards. This was one of the first stamp sets that I bought from Stampin' Up!.

Each card is just 3 x 3". The images have been watercoloured using inks to match the cardstock and each has three layers.

I think the last one is my favourite.

I better go and fold the sheets before they get all creased again!!!!
