Baby Shower invites

I did 2 samples for baby Boy shower invites & this was the one chosen, took 2 hours to make 45. Colours are the same as this one here which would have been a little more work & simple was the request.

Cherry on Top Award

It's such a nice suprise to recieve a blog award & this one was passed on to me by Andrea L, Thanks Andrea & apologies for taking so long to post. Now I have to tell you 3 things I love about myself & share a favourite pic, so here goes: I love my life -I have an amazing family & am very blessed. I love that I am a mum -Teya is such a wonderful daughter & finally I just love being me, even though I'm a little fussy at times, LOL.
Now here's a pic I love of Teya in her first Tutu (she has accumulated a few since then!)

Artistic Etchings

Here are some of the first cards I made with "Artistic Etchings", at first, my mojo just wasn't to be found but after a few stamps of the gorgeous images in this set I was on a roll & couldn't stop. I particularly love the card & it's simplicity with the images on the film strip (Square & Spiral Punch's), I can see this one will be cased, it's such a great way to use every stamp in the set. I also used the new Newsprint DSP in the background where I stamped the Eiffel Tower & medallion, they blend in beautifully. One of these cards in the pic is a make-n-take at my open homes in Sydney & the GC, click on my Stampin' up! website for open home & Vintage class details coming up soon. If you are attending my open home then leave me a comment on this post & you will recieve a gift card as a gift from me like the one in the pic, they are really pretty IRL. I cased it from a talented lady in the US who sells & uses metal sheets on all her cards & I wanted to re-create that metal look so I tried clear embossing the CS, then running it through the Bigshot in a folder (I used the new Vintage Wallpaper) & it kind of worked, nevertheless I loved the result & went crazy making them in all different colours. Also in the pic you may notice the paper roses, these are so easy to make with the new flower punch (coming 1st September), my favourite one is the music notes, I still haven't put them on a card as intended, they are a little bulky, but that won't stop me making more. Finally the card laying down was my favourite (sent it to my upline Angela as a thankyou), I was so happy she liked it. En Francais is an obvious choice of background stamp to use with this set, & I went for black, vanilla, red & saffron for colours. "Artistic Etchings" has made me love Vintage again!

Sense of Time & Vintage Wallpaper Embossed card

Another sneak Peak of a couple of gorgeous products.
I love this card, it's so pretty IRL, inspired by this card here, same layout & one I'll use again & again, I have already tried on other cards wiping White craft ink over both the Perfect Polka Dots & Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folders & I love the softness & extra detail it gives.
Sense of Time Stamp set, So Saffron & Chocolate Chip CS & inks, White Craft ink, Wild Wasabi CS & Stitched Ribbon (retired), but Wild Wasabi back in the new Brights colour collection. Bird Punch, Chunky Glitter, Scallop Trim Border punch & Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.

Nursery Necessities baby shower invite

No pastels & not to cute was the request, I hope I have created the perfect invite?
Love these colours together; Kraft, Night of Navy & Riding Hood Red. It didn't take long to put this together & my desk is not it's usually mess when creating & not to many left over bits either, lets just hope it's liked.

Nursery Necessities baby cards

I just found a little box! & inside were some of these cute "Nursery Necessities" cards I made for CCM mid last year, I realised I had forgotton to show them here on my blog, so thought it a good time since this set will be retiring, so farewell to this fabulous versatlie baby set but I might have to have one more play with it as I've been asked to do 50 baby boy shower invites.

Curly Label Punch masculine card

Another sneak peek here of a new greetings stamp set coming that co-ordinates with Punches, here it's the Wide Oval. I saw this idea on Stampin Pretty's blog. I lined up my patches differently, it was a bit tricky as the Curly Label Punch is not square, but I really like the effect. Colours are Sage Shadow (retiring), Chocolate Chip & Kraft (Colour change to Crumb Cake) withWindsor Knot DSP.
I've finished another topnote card & taken pics, just need to download from my camera & then I will post it.
