Rainy day card making

It is super wild weather outside this Australia Day weekend.....and so off to my craft room I go.  Lucky where I am situated there is no damage.  I am surrounded by lots of trees though that seem to be doing the "happy dance" as we really did need the rain :)

So I have played with a few of my new stamp sets from the sale-a-bration brochure and the up coming new Spring Catalogue available from Friday 1 February till 30 June 2013.

This first one is using the Vintage Verses stamp set and the Madison Avenue stamp set  from sale-a-bration and I am really loving this set....

Cardstock: More Mustard and Whisper White
Ink: Midnight Muse and Soft Suede
Stamp sets: Vintage Verses, Madison Avenue and the little heart from  Itty Bitties (coming soon in the new Catty)
Punches:  Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack
Accessories:  small  soda pop top and Natural trim ribbon  (also from the new Catty coming soon), Comfort Cafe DSP

I made this card to fit the new Medium Envelopes ( Crumb Cake # 107297 Page 160 of the Annual Catalogue)

This second card also using another favourite stamp set from sale-a-bration .....

Unknowingly it seems Soft Suede is my pick of colours this weekend :):) I love this stamping off technique.  I have used it before with my Motorbike stamp...great for a male card. The first bike is inked up well with Soft Suede then stamped off twice on a scrap piece of paper and then stamped on to the Whisper White.  The second bike is stamped off once and the third bike is full colour.  The last bike is full Chocolate Chip with no stamping off. It is also embossed with clear embossing powder to give it that "pop" effect.

Cardstock:  Whisper White and Soft Suede
Ink:  Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip and Versamark.
Stamp Set:  Feeling Sentimental
Accessories:  Linen thread, Chocolate Chip Brad and mini silver brad, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Clear Embossing Powder

Hope you like them and TFL

Card Making Classes

I am starting Beginners Card making Classes in the next few weeks at my home.  Only 6 people per class and you make 3 cards.  The cost will be $10.00 per person which includes all materials and supper or morning tea depending on the session.

This is one of the cards you will be making.  It really is super easy.  I am located on the Northside of Brisbane so if you are interested in coming along just email me here and I will send you all the details.  The classes will be on one week night, to be decided according to interest so if you prefer a certain night let me know.  Also one class on a Saturday morning.  The classes, hopefully, will be for 2 hours.  As this is in the early stages I may make changes as we go along.

Please tell your friends and I can help bring out that creativeness in you that you thought you never had!!!

Happy stamping!

Happy New Year!!

Goodbye 2012 and Welcome 2013 :)

I'd like to start the new year with a little about myself and the wonderful group of stampers in my life. We are a group of 4 creative ladies - Sonia, Maree, Karen W and myself - and we are the WGs (Warner Girls as we all live in the same wonderful estate). We also have Karen S, Narelle and  my daughter Dana in our group of very talented ladies.  We meet every 6 weeks to learn new techniques and try out new Stampin' Up! ® products and have lots of laughs

We create hand made greeting cards and distribute them for sale at our various workplaces.  We have 7 workplaces and 1 market shop front where our cards are placed.  The workplaces are a great idea as people are all so busy these days and for that last minute occasion when you don't want to run out to the shops a hand crafted card made with love is not far from your desk and the receiver will simply love that special thought.  If you think your workplace would like to have some of our hand crafted cards and you are in Australia just send me an email here and I can send you some sample photos to check out first.

During this past year we made very special cards and donated them to the Royal Brisbane Women's Hospital Neo-natal Premmie Ward to give to the Mum's of the bubs who reach the 100 day milestone. In 2013 we will be making Mother's Day Cards for this unit as well.

At the end of each year we donate 10% of our sales to the Heart Foundation as I lost my husband to Heart Disease nearly 5 years ago and there is still much more research and education to be done.

In February this year Sonia, Maree, Karen, Dana and I are off to Melbourne for a "Girls" weekend as a thank you to ourselves for all the wonderful cards made and many sales made.  I will have photos and highlights of the trip on my blog early in March.

So wishing everyone a very safe, happy and exciting 2013 and wishing you all many happy days of creating
