Cherry cupcake

It's nearly Friday again.  Another start to the school year begins today.  My baby is now on the tail end of high school.  The house is once again so quiet and strange after having it busy for the last 8 weeks.  Thank goodness the day has started cooler and not like it has been the last couple of weeks being in the high 30's and humidity through the roof.

Some thing different for this card.  I used watercolour paper and spritz it with Dylusion sprays.  Stamped images from Tim Holtz range with Momento ink,  Sentiment was from Elizabeth Craft dies, as well as her cupcake sticker.  I used ds sticker and microfine glitter.  Burnished the image before using Copic markers to colour it in.  Excuse the image, I think my mobile camera has a few etchings making the photos not as clear.

Aussie Aussie Aussie,
Oi Oi Oi
Well Mother Nature has certainly done us proud.  It's hot, humid and the sun is out in full force.  Why and I sitting out in the scorching hot room while the family pooch is chillaxing in the air con.  Mad I tell myself.  Oh to see all the wonderful new stuff from CHA 2015, I've started my wishlist.!!!

I've used washi for my border, a die from Sizzix Ornate Labels, IO leafy branch and the tiny rolled flowers. SU markers was used for the embossed parts of the tag.  Some gold alphabet stickers to spell out mum.

U Rock Mum

Greetings one and all,
I'm still trying to keep with the theme of Mother's Day cards to be sent to our troops.  A little bit different for this card.  I used Memory Box stencil with some texture paste for the background, A MFT Scallop border die and UROCK.  Marianne dies for the floral arrangement, IO butterfly, SU small butterfly, Dylusion inks, Versa mark chalk inks, and finally Fancy That alphabet dies.

Hearts for Mum

Hi all,
Please excuse the blurry pic, the mobile doesn't seem to like the coulours.  A very simple card using a 6 x 6 heart pattern stencil, Colorbox Chalk inks to colour the hearts in.  A SU sentiment for the banner.  A Karl round corner punch.  The background of the banner  was done with Dylusion inks.

Dream wings

Hello me lovlies,
I love these sweet Whimsy Stamps (Wee - Sweet Sparkle), I coloured her with Copic pens and used a little clear Wink of Stella on the wings to give it a little sparkle. The embossing folder is by Spellbinders and a little lace netting.  Dream die ( I'm sorry, but can't remember the company that made it.)  #228 Embossing  #94 Things with Wings  #199 Cheer Up  #35 Flowers

Mother's Day 4

Hi everyone,
The last couple of days have seen massive rain and floodings on the roads.  Lots of detouring to get to your chosen destination.  I think this cards come out better then what I hoped for.  I used a grey bazzill, Spellbinder's Bloom Four using paint sample cards, candi brads and the Bee was a Fancy that die.  A variety of washi tapes for the back ground.

4 Mother 2

Good arvo ppl,
Hope your all having an awesome week.  The weather has been pretty good this week with only a couple of days with super high humidity. The rain has certainly brought the temperature down which is a blessing.   I'm either super on time for my challenges or just a day late. Still trying to build up my Mother's day cards to send to the troops.
Here's a very simple one made with Spellbinders Vines of Passion die, I just used the insert so the heart wasn't cut out.  SU corner and heart punch with the sentiment.  Washi tape, bow coloured with Brilliance ink and some sequins to finish it off.

B'day Digger

Hey everyone,
Hope we get to see rain soon.  It's just redonculous with this heatwave.  I've stamped this cute TE digger with Momento ink and coloured it with SU water colour crayons using the Tim Holtz fine paint brush.  The background is a Couture Creations embossing folder and some washi tape for the embellishment.  Used a little glitter gelly pen for the rim of the wheels and the window of the digger too.

Just 4 mum

Happy Saturday everyone
Boy is it a stinker, the temperature is high 30s and the humidity is up there as well.  Pretty happy with the outcome of this card.  Some days keeping it simple taxes the brains more I reckon.

I've used a SU 5 petal punch and a Fancy That rolled rose die for the flower, pre-cut leaves with a washi tape for the ribbon.  A SU sentiment with me using a corner rounder and a SU heart punch.

Bunch of flowers

Hello everyone,
Another beautiful steamy day here in Brisbane.  The humidity is through the roof.  I was sweating before I even started my exercise this morning at 9.30.  Thank goodness you get so focused on lifting weights that you forget about the heat and humidity.

Here's a card I put together last night using Fancy that die, Penny Black - thank you die, MFT rolled flowers, Little B leaf die, IO butterflies, Spellbinders Labels 42 Decorative Accents and circle die.  Not sure on the sprigs and tiny leaves.  I brought them precut.  A little Wink of Stella on the sentiments and butterflies.

4 Mum

Good morning lovlies
Another steamy day happening here.  Where does the time go, family, work, exercise and other little jobs that need doing.  Couple more weeks before the start of a new school year.  Thank goodness my kids are now old enough to get their own school supplies and eeeek working.  Can we all remember when it was just so exciting getting new supplies, covering the books and marking everything.  Now it's mum, it's okay I can get the stuff myself.  :( but but but. No it's okay mum.

Here's another card I've made for Mother's day.  Just some simple stenciling in the background, netting lace ribbon for texture, a memory box flower die which I cut out twice for the stems and flowers, a IO butterfly and finally SU stamp for the sentiment.

So easy when you have awesome stamps and dies to play with.  Here's a Taylored Expression stamp and die set called Dig In, Tim Holtz Distress markers to colour, Elizabeth Craft die - Happy Birthday, SU retired ribbon and some craft wire.

Plane awesome

Happy Friday everyone,
I discovered the Taylored Expression dies with the cutest stamps that go with them.  The best thing about them are, you buy them together in the one package.  I used Tim Holtz Distress markers to colour them quickly. SU bottons for the embellishment, Elizabeth Craft dies from the tree set to make the clouds, Sizzix tag die from the "Be thankful" and a corner rounder for the tab.
