Life's Special Moments

On Saturday I attended the wedding of Tim and Kathryn in Crookwell, NSW. Crookwell is about 44klms from Goulburn. It was a beautiful wedding. Here are photographs of the card I made them. I have used Life's Special Moments and Beyond the Basics to create the card. I firstly stamped the main image with Black Stazon onto vellum. I then watercoloured the image with my Stampin' Write markers. I applied to card with silver brads. For the inside of the card I made an insert and popped in a gift card.

Along the Goulburn Road to Crookwell, I just had to stop and take a picture of this beautiful gum tree against the blue sky. Enjoy.

I hope that you have time well spent with your family and friends this holiday season. Here is a card I have created just for you.

The stamp set was a gift to all demonstrators from Stampin' Up! I have added the "and family" from Everyday Flexible Phrases. The images are stamped with Close to Cocoa and then I used my markers direct to the card stock. Thanks for passing by. Happy Holidays.

Christmas Candy Canes cometh

I know by now you are all over Candy Canes. I made these with my papermaking class, during their last class for this year. The design is not mine (from Splitcoast Stampers, if not my apologies to the original designer). If you read my blog regularly you know that I love Cranberry Crisp (paper, ink, ribbon) and it just went with the Christmas patterned paper I have had in my stash for a few years. Enjoy.

3-fold birthday card

This is the card I made for my neice's birthday last week. I have used the Wild Rose (108960) stamp set and Recollections Designer Series paper for this card. I do love Cranberry Crisp Classic Ink with Mellow Moss Classic Ink together.

The Illuminated Crowd

Last Friday my sister and I attended a scrapping evening, at a shop near where she lives. Here is one page (30cm x 30cm or 12" x12" for my USA friends) I completed. These photographs were taken whilst I was strolling down a street in Montreal,Canada and I came across this sculpture. I love the reflection in the nearby window. It is strangely evocative and at the same time thought provoking. I have kept the page very simple as the photographs and more importantly the sculpture tell the story.

Here goes

Using my new Dell Inspiron laptop - colour Flamingo Pink with Microsation finish - here are first efforts at downloading from the web camera that comes with it. Off course I love pink! Here goes - wish me luck! I passed the first test!!! And much much more quicker. Next time I will download some of my pictures from my camera - that will be tomorrow. Then I will try scanning . So many options. This card was sourced from Splitcoast Stampers. I have made a few with other stamps for friends and family having birthdays this month.
