Social Stamping – Hearts

Image may contain: textHi ya, hope you have had a nice week?

I have, it was my Birthday this week, so I got spoilt with a few things, which was nice.   And also got a few sweet cards in the mail.

Hearts is the theme for Social Stamping this week.   I don’t use Hearts in my craft very often, but I thought I would give it a go.

The whole lock down thing is starting to ease – so this morning I was able to meet a friend for coffee at a local café in the Swan Valley.   We went to the Cottage Tea Rooms.   It’s a sweet old house converted into a café, with local arts and crafts for sale inside.   And would you believe they had loads of Heart elements on display.
Even the path outside had a Heart shaped crack in it!!!

 

I made a card using the new Flower for Every Season DSP on a Just Jade base.  IMG_1241

The Just Jade Twill ribbon is lovely and soft and has a nice shine to it too.

This week at work we Celebrated our CPU day (Computershare Day), which is a yearly Celebration.  This year they had a Talent Competition running and one of the categories was Arts and Craft.  So I decorated a Canvas for the Perth Office.

Social Stamping – Family

Image may contain: textThe Social Stamping Blog Hosts that Kelly has put together are really popular and I know that all that are participating are loving it too.  I certainly am.

This week Kelly has set the theme of – Family.

I know there are many families that are distant at the moment because of the current Covid restrictions and that there are many Mums out there that will have a different and quiet Mothers Day tomorrow, because their family can’t visit like they normally do.

Me, well I am distant from my family all the time – because we live in different countries.  Those of that live in the same country as I do, are on the East Coast and I am in the West – so we are still distant.

I reflected the distance in my card today:

Similar to last week I have used the “All in the Family” stamp set and a retired World Map embossing folder.

Social Stamping – Birthdays in Isolation

Image may contain: text

Hi ya and welcome to my Social Stamping Blog Host post!

The Social Stamping Blog Host’s are the idea of Kelly Kent.    The idea is that, through stamping and craft, we can share our projects with everyone, in order to stay connected during the global lockdown period.

The theme this week is ‘Birthdays in Isolation’.

My card this week is reflective of the way many of us are staying connected at the moment…..Zoom Meetings.

So – can you tell which one is doing all the talking??  And who’s Birthday do you think it is??

I have not used these stamp sets for a while.  They are called All in the Family and Family Favourites.  So cute and will be forever in my stamp collection.

While being confined to home, without friends, visitors or Birthday parties – we have had a Birthday in our house.  It was a bit of a strange celebration and although I tried to make the day fun with surprises throughout the day – Sarah commented at bedtime that is was a stink birthday??   😦

The card I made her was based on a text conversation…….being a teenager, texting can sometimes be a good way to get through……if you know what I mean?

JAI # 129 – Sketch Challenge

 

I’ve had a very quite time in the craft room lately – not much happening at all – there’s been holidays, sickness and just the need to have a little rest.  But I’ve been back in the craft room this week – pottering around.

I have put together a little card for the Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge this week.  Firstly – let me show you the Sketch.

I decided to flip the Sketch over and approach it from a different perspective……

This was fun and colourful to put together.  I’ve used the All in the Family and Just Beachy Stamp Sets. 

This Sketch has inspired the Design team in many many ways – visit Just Add Ink to see the variety of idea and things you can do with one Sketch.  And then have a go yourself and share it with us.

Happy Baby Shower

I made this cute card this morning…..I did not have much time to put it together – so it’s quite simple.  But I’d just thought about it overnight so threw it together quickly.

It’s for a family member that is having a Baby soon.  She is having a Baby Shower soon….Shhhhh!! She doesn’t know. 

I’ve used Certainly Celery – cause we don’t know if it is a Blue or a Pink yet. And the Small Oval punch to make the Shower head.  The Stamp Set is All in the Family….which is such a cool set and I just don’t ink it enough.

Love this little lay-out using the All in the Family Stamp set and the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet that I made with the Big Shot.
