I'm Back!

Well I have been missing in action for awhile...sorry! Things are just so hectic at the moment I am struggling to keep up!! Its amazing how many activities and social engagements my three children have!

Anyway, enough of that. I have a card to show you. It is one I did for my open house a few weeks ago. It is using one of my favourite stamp sets from the current mini catalogue, Love Defined. This is such a versatile set and I really love using it!

I've used Melon Mambo, Black and Pear Pizzazz for the colours. I was really happy with this card...I love the clear stamped image. I used the little heart punch out shape from the Owl Punch and stuck them in a few spots on the stems using Stampin Dimensionals which give them a 3D look. A very easy but effective card.

Thanks for stopping by. I promise I'll be back in a few days!

Just Add Ink 55

Sorry I've been missing in action the last week or so. I was flat out organising things for the Open House I had during the week to celebrate Sale-a-bration. Thanks to all the ladies who came along, I hope you enjoyed the night! Over the coming week I will have lots to show you so those that couldn't make it can still see some samples.

Anyway, onto the Just Add Ink 55 challenge. The challenge this week is Just Add Love in recognition of Valentines Day. Of course I couldn't go past one of my favourite Stamp Sets at the moment...Love Defined from the Mini Catalogue. I made this  card very simple as I figure I'll give it to my hubby and he's not really into all the frills etc!! I have used Smooch Spritz (Silver Foil) on this card. I'm still experimenting with using this, but I think it turned out ok...would love to know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back over the next few days with lots to show! Have a good weekend.

Clean & Simple - FTL 125

I'm just stopping by quickly to show you this card I made using a new challenge website I found called Clean & Simple Stamping. They give you a sketch and you interpret how you wish!

So this is the sketch...

And here is my entry in FTL 125...

I have used the Heard From the Heart Stamp Set and the strips of Patterned Paper are from the SU Greenhouse Gala pakc. I've also added a cute SU Button. The card colour is Baja Breeze - one of my favourites!

I loved this sketch and can see I will be making more cards using it!

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget Sale-a-bration is on now. For more information click on the Sale-a-bration catalogue in my side bar.
