Card Classes, Challenges, Stamp a Stack

Circles & Spots

Way back in September 09 – the Challenge for the month that I did with my sister Nadine…was to create cards using the Seeing Spots Stamp Set (because we both have it – but had not used it in a while).  September came and went – and I did not complete the challenge.  Then October flew by – I still didn’t do it.  And then November, December ran away too….so Nadine was still waiting to receive my Seeing Spots Cards.

I asked her what our January Challenge was…..and she said Well – it’s a One-sided challenge???  Because YOU HAVE TO FINISH YOUR SEEING SPOTS CARDS!!!

So I did!!  These are the cards I sent her.

Well then – I was kinda on a Spots roll… decided to use them for my February Stamp a Stack which the ladies did last night.

For these we also used the Circle Circus Stamp Set.

3D, Card Classes

Peek-a-boo Class

 The theme for last weeks class was Peek-a-boo.  We did two different projects that fitted into that theme.  A Card and a Box.

This is the outside of the card – it’s Tempting Turquoise and Real Red.  I don’t really use the Bold colours that often so although I like the colours they were a bit outside my comfort zone really.

Inside….is where you get the Peek-a-boo idea….cause as you open the card up it shows you another image.

So you get a surprise little HELLO……

Our second project was a little Peek-a-boo box.

When you open it up there is a little Peek-a-boo window inside.


A Stamping Afternoon

On Saturday, I went to a stamping afternoon with the girls from A Klass Act.  It was our Team Day.  

Normally for Team Day we have a few Team Members make up projects for everyone to do….but this time we did a Shoe Box Swap.  That means that we all designed a card and provided the materials for it…so that we all made each others cards.  It was heaps of fun…..there was some fast and furious stamping going on!!  

These are the projects we did…… 

So you can see there was a great array of ideas, stamp sets & techniques.  It was alot of fun.  I look forward to the next Shoe Box Swap.


Gift Things I’ve made recently….

Lately I have put together a few Gifts and things for people that I’d like to show you.

Firstly – my friend’s boy was turning 8 and is really really into drawing – I’d got him some pencils and drawing paper.  But when if came to wrapping it up – the pencils were going everywhere and it was a bit messy.  So I decided to make him a box for his pencils to go in.

I used the Washington  Apple DSP and Small Star Punch.  I put a hole in the bottom of the box with the Word Window punch so that he could see which pencil he was getting out.

Next was a friend’s birthday.  She is into Roses – so I wanted to do some thing Rosey.  We both love the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set – and I love the Urban Oasis DSP.  Put it all together and what do you get????  THIS……

A simple 2-5-7-10 box and matching Card.  It was my first real go at Water-colouring too and I was quite happy with the result.

Lastly was a Thank you gift.  Again – I felt like Matching things……so I matched the box & card to the actual gift which was a little Raspberry Tart Stampin Up Calculator.
