Phew, all caught up and have even had some time to create! I was going a little crazy not being able to sit down quietly and make some stuff. The house is coming together nicely, the boys seem pretty settled and I have had a chance to catch up with some of the lovely people I met at Paperific, with lots more calls to make. If you were at Paperific and have some follow up questions, give me a call and either myself or one of the lovely team of demonstrators working with me will be able to help. I'm also pleased to report that our gift baskets were won by Carol Hafake in Hoppers Crossing, and Anne Craig in Yarraville. These two ladies were very excited to get the call!
Now onto the cards, right?
This first one was created using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Isn't the tree just divine?
To create this effect I have rubbed Chocolate Chip ink onto the negative side of my Cuttlebug folder (the one where the indents go down). I then embossed the tree onto a piece of Purely Pomegrante, so the ink transfers between the embossing. I then cut out the tree.
Stampin' Up! supplies used:
- Baroque Motifs and Short and Sweet stamp set (still 20% off with a $20 order before Friday!)
- Chocolate Chip ink
- Clear Rhinestones (from pretties kit), Purely Pomegranate ribbon, silver embossing powder.
This card was made for this months bundle offer, and is a sneak peek of one of the 6 cards you will get complete instructions as well as a free inkpad when you buy the Wintergreen October bundle. The bundle is less than $70 and you get everything you need to make tons of colour coordinated Christmas cards with your existing stamps. All the details of the special are here. I will be taking orders for this special up to Thursday 6pm.
Here's another card using the same colour scheme. This card isn't one of the cards featured in this months bundle, but I love the colours so much I just had to use it again. This is for this weeks Mojo Monday sketch 57 over at Poetic Artistry. As you can see the sketch was supposed to have a square element top right, but a little bit of creative licence is the beauty of sketches don't you think?
Stampin' Up! supplies used for this one are:
- Solemn Stillness, Merry Merry and Snow Flurries stamp set
- Always Artichoke and Versamark ink
- Always Artichoke, Soft Sky, Certainly Celery and Sage Shadow cardstock
- Certainly Celery ribbon and Silver embossing powder
I di have one more to upload but my computer is having 'issues' still and won't let me do anything at more than snails pace, so I will save that for tomorrow.
Hope you are having a happy Sunday,
