Yellow Rose of Texas!

Good afternoon my lovelies!

Well had a great holiday but couldn’t wait to get back into the craft room.  So have spent today prepping for my Coffee and Card Class on Tuesday, I have 6 lovely ladies coming and can’t wait to catch up with them all.  Still time if you would like to come along.  Its at 9.30am at Round Table Coffee on Gawain Road Bracken Ridge.  Call me on 0419721561 if you are interested.

Today’s card is actually the card I have made for my Mum’s Birthday which is on Saturday.  She is in a nursing home with Alzheimer’s so she won’t see it so I am sharing it with you before I actually give it to her.

I did white heat embossing on vellum using the Beautiful Day stamp set then coloured on the back using Stampin Blends (Daffodil Delight and Old Olive). Love how this technique turns out.  You do have to fussy cut the rose out though! I used the Tin Tile Dynamic  embossing folder to emboss the background and the wording is from the new Well Written framelits which are just amazing and still available in the Occasions Catalogue.  So many words!!!

I did punch some more leaves out using the leaf punch and a little thinlet from the Beauty Abounds set.   Another great set to check out in the Occasions catalogue.    I looked around for something to accentuate my picture and found this lonely little yellow rose in my garden, not quite a match and it’s not the yellow rose of Texas but it will do.

Let’s know what you think of today’s card by leaving a comment here and if you would like any of the products don’t forget to check out the product list below and then go to my online store to order.  Remember it’s still Saleabration until the end of March so if you purchase $90 or more you get to choose free gifts!    Check out the brochures here on my blog site!

Well that’s about it for today, hope you all have a great weekend!  Stay safe and keep on stampin!!!

Beauty Abounds!

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all had an amazing Christmas as much as we did.  So much fun was had with all our grandchildren and all the family.  Now it is a little quiet I can share with you the birthday card I made for someone very special in our lives.

This card is made using the Beauty Abounds bundle available as of January in the new Occasions catalogue.  I love butterflies and dragonflies and saw this set and knew I had to have it.  The bundle comes with the Beauty Abounds Stamp set and Butterfly Beauty thinlets in the new cling style stamps.  If you buy the bundle it works out 10% cheaper and as the bundle is $97.00 you automatically qualify for a free item from the Saleabration catalogue.  OMG its virtually two items, get one free, how good is that.  Of course not until January.  So start making your list and ensure you add this to the top of it!

The back ground of the stamp is using the Basket Weave embossing folder available from the Annual Catalogue.  Its a great versatile folder to have only $16 on page 222 of the AC.

Below are all the products used.  If you have any questions, please don’t be afraid to ask!  Hope you like the card!

The Occasions Catalogue and Saleabration will be starting in the New Year with some very exciting products coming.   Hope you can share the excitement with me by coming to a class or holding a workshop.  Call me to book on 0419721561.

Have a great day!
