Everything is Rosy

Oh my goodness!
This is soooooo gorgeous, and I don’t know about you, but I want this!!

The Everything is Rosy Product Medley is being released on the 1st of May, and is only available until the 31st of May unless it runs out before that (which is highly likely).
Here is a sample made using this Medley.

Everything is rosy Sample 1
So much gorgeousness.
And the variety of products that is going to be included in the Medley is extensive, filled to the brim with coordinating products for endless creative possibilities.
Suitable for cardmakers, scrapbookers, gift box makers, it has everything you could want.
The cost is $139 and looks like it will be well worth saving your dollars for this one.

Everything is rosy products
I will post up a reminder closer to the date, but in the meantime, save those dollars because this is a one off, you can only get it in May, and only while stocks last. (In other words, order it on the 1st of May, because it will probably sell out fast).
You will be able to order your Everything is Rosy Product Medley through my online store.

Happy stamping!

Colour Creations – Real Red

55443509_10158296294103098_3790466130875777024_o
I am joining in with the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop this week, and we are using Real Red on our projects.

My ink colour pallete is rather limited at this stage, so I am having to rely on the cardstock I have on hand, and some bits and pieces that my lovely upline, Judy May, has sent to me, so that I can keep the creativity going.
Judy sent me this gorgeous heart and the “Happy” word, both in Real Red, so they were perfect to use for this Blog Hop.

The heart is Die cut using the absolutely gorgeous Be Mine Stitched Framelits dies, which I just love!!  So gorgeous.  Definitely on the Wish List!

Isn’t it pretty?
So many beautiful die available, I want them all.
I also love Embossing Folders and this one is another particularly lovely one, it’s called Layered Leaves.   Another one on my Wish List!

If you would like to see what the rest of the Blog Hop team have made using Real Red this week, you can find the list here.

Happy Stamping!

Butterflies and Gingham

My box of new Stampin Up! goodies arrived yesterday so I have had a heap of fun playing with some of them today.
Being a butterfly lover,  I absolutely loved the Butterfly Gala stamp set from the Occasions catalogue as soon as I saw it.  And it’s fantastic that it has a matching punch, although mine is on back order (guess it has been pretty popular!) so I had to cut the butterflies out by hand today.

Butterfly Gala Set 1

I have used the gorgeous Gingham Gala Designer Series Papers, and some retired doilies that I still have from a few years ago.  The butterflies have been coloured using a Blender Pen and some gorgeous new ink colours, Balmy Blue, Highland Heather and Flirty Flamingo (they are new to me).

Butterflies Blue

Butterflies Green

Butterflies Purple

I think my favourite is Highland Heather, how about you?

It’s been so good to get back into some stamping and creating, and the ideas are starting to flow too quickly to keep up with.

Happy Stamping!

Playing along in a Challenge

It’s been a very long time since I joined in with a cardmaking challenge, so what better way to get back into it, than to join in with The Male Room.  At one stage, I was member of the Design Team with this great group of ladies, so it’s lovely to join in again with them.
The current challenge is to use Dies on a project, and I have chosen a simple card, using the Kaszazz Hexagon Dies.


The fabulous patterned papers are a collection, again from Kaszazz, from the Industrial collection, the background looks like an old Aussie traditional tin roof!  The Hexagons are cut from another piece of patterned papers, and they have just been sponged with black ink.
Here is a close up of the hexagons:

Well, that’s me done for today, it is good to be feeling creative and have some mojo happening again, and I have more to share with you real soon.
Happy stamping!

Halloween!

This fortnight at The Male Room, we have a Halloween challenge.

Halloween is always a challenge for me, we don’t celebrate it very much here in Australia, although it is starting to take off a little and there are a few things in the shops, which is just as well…..

I had to go searching the shops for something to put on my Halloween card, I don’t have any stamps, just a few papers.  So I was very relieved when I found these cute cupcake toppers.  I very carefully took the stick out and trimmed them a little, then adhered them over some patterned papers and black textured cardstock.  I am loving that big, black owl!
You never know, we might make a bit of an effort this year, and put a few decorations up for Halloween.
Happy stamping!

The Male Room – Spots and Stripes

For the next couple of weeks at The Male Room we want your masculine style projects to include SPOTS AND STRIPES.  Don’t forget you can make any type of papercraft project – but it must be for the men in our lives – both young and old.

CHALLENGE#15

I have used some polka dot papers for my background and then layered some strips of cardstock in various colours on an angle over the patterned papers.  Such a great way to use up some of those strips that we all seem to collect.

The car stamp and the sentiment were freebies from a magazine I bought recently.  Both the car and the “Happy” have been fussy cut and mounted on dimensional tape.
I hope you will join in with our challenge at The Male Room.
Happy stamping,
Chris

Crafty Boots Stars or Stripes

I have gone with some Stripes on my cards for this week’s Crafty Boots Challenge, but you could choose either Stripes, Stars or even both!

This first card uses some retired Stampin’ Up! patterned papers, and features the cute little Ellie digital image from Tiddly Inks, which I have coloured with Copic markers.

My second card also uses a Tiddly Inks digi, called My Dads Truck.  I have left the image un-coloured this time and mounted it on some wide striped papers from the new Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack.

So why don’t you come on over to Crafty Boots Challenges and show us your stars or stripes!
Happy stamping!
