Watercolour Wings... I love you!

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who is absolutely in love with the new Watercolour Wings stamp set. The amount of amazing colour combinations that can be used with this beautiful "3x step" stamp set is out of this world. Every time I try a different combo it comes out perfectly!!

So it was my best friends Birthday last week and I wanted to make something a little extra special for her, of course using her favorite color "Elegant Eggplant". What's more special, then a shaker card!!

I'm so pleased with this card, as it came out exactly like I imagined which makes a nice change lol. The Watercolour Wings set co-ordinates with not only the Bold Butterfly framelits (which, when brought as a bundle you can save 15% off) but also the Butterflies Thinlits too, which is how I got the "skeleton" effect on the front butterfly.

Are you wondering where my "purple" shaker filling's came from? Well, all I did was sponge Elegant Eggplant onto some of our Dazzling Diamond Glimmer paper and then used our 1/16" circle punch to punch them out. Easy Peasy!!

Happy Crafting.

Just Add Ink #268

So what do you think?!?!?  

After having the same blog layout for a few years now I decided that it was time to give it a little revamp and I totally love it!! And what better way to launch my beautiful new blog, but to take part in a sketch challenge from the Just Add Ink girls.

Here is this weeks sketch:

And here is my entry:

 Such a cute card isn't it. I made this for my gorgeous friend and Downline Kim from Kim's Paper Krafts who's Birthday is today.

I wanted to make a gorgeous card for her. She is always in my corner, cheering me on and offering council when I need it. She also makes the most amazing roomie too. I couldn't go to Convention without her

Lots of new product on this card, everything used it listed below, but I want to point out the gorgeous Expressions Natural Elements. 3 different wooden words (Celebrate, Congrats and Thanks) that are the perfect size for cards and, great news for me, you get 5x of each word. I'm pretty sure I'll be finding lots of uses for these little babies!

Happy Crafting,

New Project Life Moments like These

I've finally had a chance to open and play with my very small preorder yesterday. These are the things I have learnt so far:

1) I will really love this years incolours, can't decided on which will be my fav as yet, but pretty sure they will all get used a lot.

2) My wishlist for the new catalogue is growing every time I open it. Really need to book more workshops to pay for it or stop opening the catty.

3) The new Ronald McDonald stamp set and punch is not only benefiting an amazing charity but its one of the best punch/stamp bundles I've seen in a while and I'm pinning it as one of the stars of this years catalogue.

And at number 4) is the gorgeous new Project Life set called Moments like These. The card kit is so fresh and trendy that I can already see heaps of layouts I can use it on, but today I wanted to highlight the stunning accessory kit that matches that set. Here's a quick card that I put together using some of the bits from the kit:

Ok so from the kit I used the card with the sentiment, the individual sequins and the little gold paperclip. The gold writing on the card really does sparkly and stand out. One of the comments on this card in Instagram said, "Love this card, but did you actually, really stick the card down?" That really made me laugh, as I'm known to be a bit of a hoarder of pretty things, so it's nice to know I'm not alone!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Cardstock: Basic Black and Mint Macaroon
DSP: Back to Black
Other: Moments like These PL Accessories kit, Butterfly thinlits, Blossom Accents, Gold Sequin Trim and Vellum.

Celebrate Everyday

Morning guys,

I have been busy crafting away the last few days and feel like I finally have my mojo back again. I borrowed the Celebrate Today bundle from my downline Shelly as I had seen a cute card I wanted to case and now 4 cards and a handbag later and I'm totally in love with this set. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it carry's over from the Occasions catty to our new Annual Catalogue (only 7 weeks away!!)

So my first share for today was a card I made for one of my favourite demos who is having a birthday tomorrow. No I can't tell you who it is as she might just pop in and I don't want to spoil the surprise!!

Once I realised what I had planned for this card, I was soooo pleased that this stamp set comes with matching framelits. No fussy cutting for me, especially so many of these Typeset DSP balloons.

The card is pretty, vintage and soft which suits the birthday girl who it's going to!!

Have fun,

Stamps: Celebrate Today
Ink: Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake and Baked Brown Sugar
Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Baked Brown Sugar and Very Vanilla
Other: Celebrate Today Framelits, Typeset DSP, Gold Sequin Trim, and Twine

Just Add Ink #256 Sketch Challenge

So with the end of Sale-a-bration yesterday, I decided to make a handful of cards which I then upload to my Facebook page every few hours as a way to celebrate all the goodness we got during SAB.

One of the cards I made was inspired by the sketch challenge over at Just Add Ink and I loved how it came together. I really had no plans or ideas for it other then to follow the sketch and show off some SAB products at the same time. Here is the sketch:

And here is my card and entry:

So the SAB goodies used are: Simply Wonderful stamp set, DSP and the in-colour twine. I really loved our Sale-a-Bration paper and I'm so glad I still have a stash of it sitting around, as it will make some super cute Project Life cards. The butterfly is actually cut from our gorgeous glimmer paper in Dazzling Diamonds colour, but it doesn't really show up in the photo.

Have fun,

Stamps: Simply Wonderful (SAB)
Ink: Black Memento
Cardstock: Coastal Cabana, Lost Lagoon and Whisper White
Other: Vellum, Butterfly Thinlits, Incolour Twine (SAB) Best Year Ever DSP (SAB), Bermuda Bay Sequins, Decor Framelits and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.
