Eastern Blooms

This card was made for my Birthday last month by my niece -just beautiful like her!

And this one from my friend Gail, using one of my favourite summer mini sets "Ocean Commotion". They both have used pumkin striped ribbon!

Simply Said cards

A CAS of the stamped flower edge (I think I saw on Splitcoast) -had to make one for myself -well to send to someone. I can stamp/write on the back of the heart that fits nicely into the mounted sentiment "simply said from the heart... thank you". Colours are Elegant Eggplant, River Rock on Very Vanilla.
The Regal Rose cards that Teya & I made during the school holidays were a CASE (Itty Bitty Buds)from the US catalogue.

All About Birthdays card

I had to make quite a few cards this past week so a few had to be simple ones. I pulled out my "All About Birthdays" wheel & the only jumbo cartridge I have suitable for a boy card is Tempting Turquoise so it was colour choice chosen! I usually use my ink pad to ink up my wheels, but I wanted easy!
I also used the little star from "Nursery Necessities" inked in Real Red & punched out with the small star, I love the way you get a little border around the star. I also used the large to Star Punch & a star brad from the Pretties kit. I outlined the flames on the candle with my red Marker & added a little Dazzling Diamonds, I also cut & adhered strips of Real Red CS to the candles, nice & easy -just the way I wanted it!

Crab & Company Gift Wallet

Here's a Gift Wallet I made last year for our fabulous friends that share their holiday house on Stradbroke Is with us. I have been sorting through my photo's trying to make room for new ones & came across a few good ones that I havn't shared, hence the lack of posting new creations on my blog this year, & due to many celebrations my Stamping has been on long service leave lol!
Anyway back to Crab & Co, colours are Soft Sky, Really Rust & Old Olive as they co-ordinate with the Fall Flowers DS paper that I chose, I got my Crimper out for this one & sponged it, it's hard to see in the pic but this looks great & rustic, which is the look I wanted for this wallet.
I'll be back soon with some cards I've made recently, just need to clear some more files before I can download them.
