A little bit of fun.

Today I am playing with a new stamp set Build-a-roo. The little kangaroo comes with lots of greetings and little bits to add - Joey (baby Kangaroo), flower stem, gifts, more flowers and hearts. Here are 2 cards I made today. Enjoy mates and friends from around the world.

The first one (I have called her Watercolour Roo) also uses the Banksia stamp from Blooms away, to keep the Australia theme going. Got to love the little joey stamp that comes with it.
The second one (a.k.a. Raspberry Roo) uses paper from Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper (DSP) and yummy Riding Hood Red ribbon. This was the easier card to make, as I simply stamped the roo image onto the DSP in Riding Hood Red ink, cut it out and adhered to cardstock. I can see a full series Blue Roo, Green Roo, Yellow Roo etc etc

Inspired by Nature (again)

Last night was The INKlings annual rewards night.I was not a winner but congratulations go to our friends who were rewarded by our leader, Jayne, for their efforts at building their SU business. I did however, prepare a quick technique for the evening. Using Inspired by Nature stamp set (fast becoming my favourite set of all time) I created a scrapbook page and card fronts using a watercolouring technique that I played around with. Want to know more details why not email me. Enjoy

Today, The INKlings got together for a day of stamping. We all took along a "Card in the box" - this is where you take along all the supplies for each person to make your card. Here is my card. It is a very simple to construct card using Inspired by Nature stamp set and Friendly Words Jumbo wheel.

Nature sure does inspire you - here are some photographs of the Tibouchina (blooming with its beautiful purple flowers) in my front garden. I can see a card coming.........watch this space. Margaret

Cyberstamp - Challenge 2

Dani's next challenge was to think of a number between 1-10 then another number between 1-10, then go to the page in current catalogue that matches the combined numbers, and create a card or scrapbook page from an image on the page. I chose 8 (my birthday) and 8 (today's date) = 88 and on this page is a great stamp set Bloom Away. You get 3 images of iconic Australian flora images - Banksia, Waratah and Gum Blossom. I watercoloured the Gum Blossom image and based the card on the other card layout on page 88.
