Christmas Card Throwdown

Saturday, 11 April 2015


Hi there everyone, it is a bit chilly today, no sun, just cloudy. 23o C.  Hope everyone is well.  I made this card to enter into the 52 (Christmas) card throwdown challenge, April Colour Challenge, Coffee and Cream. I used a brown cardstock with a cream topper, the topper is a Quill card "Crazed" it has a nice texture and I used a Tim Holtz stencil "Festive" with "Vintage Photo" distress ink pad.   I am happy with this, I haven't used this stencil before, and I think I will be using it a lot in the future.  Thanks for visiting, Jasann

Baby Girl Card

Hi  there everyone, hope you are all well today.   I made this card for a family member who has just had a baby girl and I used white cardstock for the base and a pink topper that I embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder "Polka Dots" the paper was a pale pink from my stash and I used the next floral piece from a 12" x 12" paper pad that I bought at Big W, it does not have a brand name on it, for the little piece with the pram on it was a piece of white card stock embossed with a old little Cuttlebug embossing folder from a set called "celebration stamps"  there are a set of 5, but I think they are now discontinued.   I used a Spellbinder Nestabilities cutting die, "Classic Scalloped Rectangles Small" to cut out the floral piece and a Spellbinder Shapeabilities "Fancy Tag 2" for the sentiment and an old Fiskars stamp for the Congratulations and a piece of pink ribbon to make the bow from my stash. I did all the shading with Rangers Spun Sugar ink pad.       I think I got it right, and the  inspiration came from Karen at          Thank you Karen!!!!

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - In the Middle.

Exploding Handbag

Hi there everyone,I made this cute little exploding purse to put some little easter eggs in for my friend, who loves handbags.  I got the tutorial from Split Coast Stampers, they have lots of great tutorials.  I used a heavy scrapbooking paper from "Once upon a Time" 12" x 12" square stack Fabrique that I bought from Big W, some time ago there were 48 sheets in this stack and I have used quite a few of them on various projects, I shaded the edges of this project with Rangers Distress Ink Pad "Vintage Photo" and used flowers cut from scrap paper with a Spellbinders "Donna Salazar" die "Rose Creations" and used small stick on flowers for the centres, and on one of the flowers I used a purple dragon fly brad for the centre, and I cut a butterfly from a scrap of one of the Graphic 45 pads. I used some stick on velcro tape for the closure.   I enjoyed making this, but it didn't go to my friend, I had to make another one for her, this one is being entered into the Hawkesbury Valley Agriculture Show,   I am also entering this into the Scor-pal More than One Score #14 - Spring and/or Flowers, .  Hope you all like it, and
Thanks for visiting today, Jasann
