Last night I stayed up 'till 2am making these (6 in all 3 designs) it's the designing I find that takes a long time but once I'm happy with that I find I can whip them up in no time. I've already posted 2 this am & didn't photograph them, they are similar but with less layering -lots happening next month, both happy & sad, so sending well & best wishes to all the recipients.
"Vintage Vogue" stamp set, Top Note die, Filigree, Rhinestone & Silver Brads. Colour combo's are Melon Mambo & Pretty in Pink then not Quite Navy & Rich Razzleberry both with Whisper White.
I just love these IRL.
I used the gorgeous "Very Vintage" wheel inked in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla CS that mounts onto Soft Suede, the Topnote is Kraft & also inked with Soft Suede. Colour variations are Not Quite Navy & Rich Razzleberry, I used the fabulous distressing tool on my Cutter Kit to distress the edges, lots of Sponging, Rich Regal Brads & Soft Suede 1/2" Polka Dot Ribbon.

I was very excited to see the Top Note die in the new mini catalogue as I have been wanting to make a box since it's release in the US, I just googled Top Note Box tutorial & this fabulous blog was the first one to pop up. I used Cottage Wall DSP, Rich Razzleberry & Orchard Opulance CS & some gorgeous Rich Razzleberry Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, I tried adding some embellishments but the Ribbon was all it needed. To make the box top & bottom sturdy I layered them both with the cardboard that comes in DSP packaging.
I was excited to see so many comments on my previous post, so thankyou to everyone who participated in my blog giveaway & left me a comment. My number was 11, so that makes Alley the winner, make sure you pop on over to her blog & see her beautiful creations, congratulations Alley, just email me your address & I'll pop that parcel in the post to you.

These are the 9 SAS cards made in 2.5hrs!
10 lovely ladies attended my Sydney SAS class & over 200 cards were made while I was in Sydney last weekend. A huge effort getting organised & prepped I must admitt but well worth the joy & appreciation expressed by everyone who got to stamp with me,
So a BIG THANKYOU from me to everyone who joined me.
I had a wonderful time catching up with you all & hope you are all inspired & keepstamping!
I thought I would post individual pics for those that have purchased the SAS kits as they only included the supply list & measurements.
Urban Garden DSP is adhered to the whisper white CS after the silhouettes have been stamped, use the card front as a guide so you have a border showing, then you adhere the Tafetta ribbon (tucked behind) that has Sticky Strip applied all along it, gathering as you go, leave enough to tuck behind at the end. Stamp the antenna's before you apply the ribbon if this is where you want the butterfly, now you can adhere this to the card front.
The Easel card is posted here
I will be back to post the 3 "Thoughts & Prayers" cards individually so this post isn't to long!

My beautiful niece Marina is turning 30 next month & is having High Tea & a Lolly Buffet. She came up for Teya's Birthday so we made the time to design her invites & made matching lolly labels, cake toppers etc, It will look amazing & I will be sure to take a pic so you can see.
We got the idea for the invite layout from a lovely card Teya recieved for her Birthday made by my wonderful & very creative friend Louise. The sweet shop awning idea we saw on Splitcoast, a gorgeous card I emailed to Marina but it has no watermark, the stamp set used on that one was "Crazy for Cupcakes".
We used an image from "Fun & Fast notes", Your Invited is from "Cheer & Wishes". Candy Lane DSP, with Riding Hood Red, Pirouette Pink, Close to Cocoa & Very Vanilla CS.
