Good afternoon everyone,
Well it’s a Billy (Grandson) day today but haven’t been in my room all week and thought while he’s asleep I would quickly get in and make this card that I have been wanting to get made.
We all know how hard it is to find a nice design for a male birthday card, well here’s a quick and easy one. It may look difficult but I can assure you it is so easy. Just using your sponges and inks to tone in a sunset look background. The colours I used were Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobler and some Fresh Fig. Of course you can create your own type of sunset tonings in whatever colours you wish. I cut a circle from one of my punches and used some washi tape to secure it while I did the sponging.
The stamp set is the adorable Country Road a great set for male cards! I also used the flying bird stamp from High Tide but only stamped one bird onto the card across the sun. Used a mask so that the other birds wouldn’t stamp.
The design is mounted onto Daffodil Delight cardstock and then that is mounted onto Early Espresso card.

I will be doing up a list of the classes for next year, early in the new year so if you would like to come to any of my classes, be sure to contact me to receive your monthly newsletter for all the latest details! Call me on 0419721561 if you have any queries. There are classes to suit all levels of paper crafters! Not just card making but I can show you some great 3d projects or scrapbooking layouts.
I will be doing some Christmas cards in the upcoming days as this heat in Brisbane will keep me indoors and in air conditioning!!
Hope you all have an amazing day!
Hope this finds you all well on this Thursday. I just got back from the hairdressers to find my Stampin Up delivery had arrived. I’ve been so excited to get this parcel (more so than usual) as it contains the beautiful new Stampin Up Craft and Carry tote bag. Check out the video to have a close up and personal look at this gorgeous bag. My classes are going to be even more fun to go to and more organised with this great product. One of these could be yours also during Saleabration call me and ask me how you can get this tote bag at a rediculously reduced price! Call Beth on 0419721561
You may have seen on my FB page that I have been doing a fair bit of scrapbooking of late. I have so many photos to scrapbook and thought it was about time I got stuck into more of the scrapping. Im loving the mixed media pages, layouts and techniques. Still trialling so many but that’s half the fun right?
Here’s a couple to show you what I have been up to.
Hope you have a great weekend!
Well a very good early morning to you all,
Couldn’t sleep at 4.30am today so what else does one do but to get up and go into the craft room! Never before have I done this but I was awake, the birds were chirping outside and so why not!
Here is a cute little gingerbread house I made from some DSP from last year which I have been wanting to use up. The roof opens up to reveal some yummy goodies. Well it will be full when I get to the shop to get some. But you could make this and fill it with whatever goodies you want and use whatever designer series paper you may have at home. I love the glittery roof, don’t you?
I saw Linda Parker on youtube doing a similar one and this is my take on it. Thanks Linda you are awesome! Would be lovely for the little ones on Christmas Day.
Let me know what you think as I may do a video on it if I get enough interest. Please leave a comment here on my blog!
Cheers and have a great day.
Had a lovely Coffee and Card class this morning despite a couple of cancellations but Judy and I soldiered on and made a lovely monochrome Christmas card (pictured above). Very easy to make. Here’s how!
- Night of Navy Cardstock for card base.
- Whisper White cardstock for card front
- Night of Navy Ink
- White ribbon
- Extra Whisper White cardstock for sentiment
- Piece of computer paper to make your mask.
- First of all make a “mask” by using the 2.5″ circle punch in a scrap piece of paper.
- On your card front of whisper white cardstock, sponge with Night of Navy ink in circles ensuring you hold your mask down. Leave a little lighter area in the centre or just off centre. Make the “moon” as dark or as light as you wish.
- Stamp Santa and his sleigh in memento ink across the moon.
- Stamp the trees from Winter Woods in Night of Navy
- Make a knot with some white ribbon and adhere across base of trees around the card front
- Stamp your sentiment on a piece of white scrap paper and punch out.
- Optional extra to sponge around the sentiment.
- Adhere your sentiment with dimensionals
- Glue your card front to your card base
If you would like any of these beautiful products, be sure to contact me or use my safe and secure online shop.
After the class I went to lunch with a lovely dear friend and came home and made some gable boxes. These make a great gift wrapping idea for Christmas or fill them with some yummy chocolates or lollies or even some beautiful soap to make great stocking fillers. I sell these for just $2.50 each but if you would like to buy the gable boxes and decorate them yourself they come as a pack of 12 for $14.00 and you can get them in either silver or white. They are great fun to stamp and decorate with whatever your imagination delivers!
Hope to see you later in the week!
Cheers for now!
