Happy Engagement!

Hey everyone!

Just the other day I was asked by a friend to create an Engagement card, followed of course by a Wedding card. I haven’t made the second one yet as I have a little time up my sleeve at the moment. But I have to admit I have not made an Engagement card yet. Does that sound weird? I have been to a few weddings and hens nights so why not engagement parties? I will have to look into that! lol!

I was also asked to make this card elegant. This is something I don’t do a lot of. I must say it took all my oomph not to sponge the edges! LOL! I am not entirely sure I pulled it off either…..what do you think?

I used the colours Calypso Coral (my new fave btw), Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla. I pulled out an old favourite SS too, I {Heart} Hearts and mixed it up with a new favourite, Creative Elements. I think they look nice together. The background was embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I think the card is growing on me anyway. Good practice for the elegant Wedding card!

I also made another card today but I am saving it for another day to share. Such a tease aren’t I?!

Christmas Stocking!

Hey everyone!

I thought I would share with you all the current promotion with SU. It is a hostess promotion and it is super cute, wait til you see it.

If you hold a workshop in the month of October and reach sales of $450, then you will receive the Stitched Stocking SS (wood or clear mount) plus the Stocking Builder punch FREE!!!! Isn’t that super awesome?!

Pretty Cute HUH?

I have seen some beautiful things made with this set. I particularly loved the hobby-horse one. I will have to make one and share it with you all. But this is what I have made with it just recently

I just used the punch for this one and punched out some Designer Series Paper. In this case I used the Beau Chateau Range. The Polka Dot one though, is from the Mocha Morning Range. I used the Vanilla Seam Binding and twisted the tails to curl and adhered them down with Mini Glue Dots. I have accompanied this card with SS’s Creative Elements, French Foliage and Established Elegance.

If you would like more information on this promotion and/or you would like to host a workshop and you live in the Lockyer Valley or Darling Downs area I will be more than happy to help. Email me today!

Inkspiration Challenge #89

Hey everyone!

I know I am posting this late….lets’ just say I wont be doing a scheduled post ever again! Not only did it not publish but it has disappeared like the last one. I’m not sure what I am doing wrong. I’m pressing all the right buttons. I just think there is some glitch.

But now that I have time to write this post up again I will.

This weeks challenge is a sketch one. I must admit I made a few different cards before I settled on one. Don’t get me wrong the sketch is not hard at all, I was just being super fussy! LOL!

Here is my creation

I drew inspiration from a card I saw at the Melbourne Convention. It was a very simple one layer card and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.

I used the colours Marina Mist, Cherry Cobbler, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight. I also used Basic Grey for the sentiment.

Don’t forget to check out the Inkspiration Blogspot to submit your creation and have a peek at the rest of the DT’s gorgeous submissions.
