OnStage pillow gifts

Dear Crafters,

Today, I am home resting after a huge couple of days in Sydney for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Local event which was held at Luna Park!  It was so exciting getting our hands on the brand new Annual Catalogue, and it never fails to impress me, but…. I am still not allowed to share anything from that event until tomorrow.

So, today I will share the pillow gift I made for my room buddy, Sharon and the gift I made for Catherine Proctor, who was so kind and caring and did so much for Sharon and I while we were in Sydney. We can’t thank Catherine enough for all her driving, picking us up from the airport on Friday and taking us to our hotel, then again on the day of the event!

For Sharon, my travel and room buddy, I made the gift box and inside was the earrings and necklace set (Blooms & Bliss DSP) and a little notebook in coordinating colours.

For Catherine, I made this card and coordinating notepad.

I hadn’t actually met Catherine before this event, so I wasn’t sure what to make to thank her, but who doesn’t love hearts, butterflies and pearls, right?!!!!!!

and because Catherine was also our taxi on Friday, I baked her some homemade choc chip cookies to enjoy with her cuppa!

Watercolour Wings for JAI

Dear Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is an Sketch Challenge JAI#268.

What a great sketch this is and as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to give it a go!

I started with a Basic Black card and added panels of Old Olive and the a piece of the new Pretty Petals DSP Stack. I sponged the edges before gluing them to the card.

Next I added the banner across the centre. I used the 2″ circle punch and embossed it with the fluttering textured impressions embossing folder and sponged the edges before adding it with dimensionals.

Stampin Up Watercolour Wings

I stamped the butterfly onto Very Vanilla card stock, starting with Calypso Coral (stamped off for the first image), full strength for the second image and the 3rd is Watermelon Wonder. Then I die cut it out with the Butterflies Thinlits.

I also die cut a piece of vellum with the Bold Butterfly Framelits and attached it to the stamped image.

I wanted something a little bit more, so I used some gold beads and threaded them onto gold wire I use for jewellery making! You can see it close up below, cute hey!!!!

Do you see those gold dots? Wonder how I made those? Well, they are the White Perfect Accents and I coloured them with a Gold Sharpie pen!!!! How clever hey!

Don’t forget to decorate the inside panel along with a coordinating envelope!

Butterflies, Challenges, feminine, Handmade Cards

All Abloom Butterfly

Dear Crafters,

Today I entered a Creative Sketch Challenge as part of our Art With Heart Team.

I used the All Abloom DSP Stack and the Butterfly Basics & Butterfly Thinlits Bundle, along with Crisp Cantaloupe, Mossy Meadow & Pistachio Pudding card stock!

Butterfly Basics

I love these colours together and who doesn’t love butterflies and flowers?!!!

Butterfly Basics

I embossed the Scalloped circle with the Perfect Polka Dot TIEF and sponged the edges with the coordinating ink and a dauber. The sentiment is stamped with Mossy Meadow ink.

I also decorated the inside of the card with a strip of the same paper I used on the front and die cut another butterfly from the same DSP to adhere to the envelope!

Butterfly Basics

Don’t forget that the Butterfly Bundle is only on sale until the end of Sale-a-bration. By purchasing the bundle you save yourself 15%, and who wouldn’t want to do that?!!!!
