Growing Green Stamp Class....

Sorry for being AWOl again....

I have been painting our Kitchen before the fitter comes. We had our kitchen ceiling flatten, so it was quite abit to paint. So much easier though with nothing in the room. I did laugh on Friday while I was painting all the new plaster.

The door bell rang and it was MR Brown from UPS with my Stampin UP Order! He looked at me and said Cor! that must be some Card you are painting! I looked at him and said NO! I'm painting a ceiling and he laughed and said he could see that by the PAINT ON MY FACE!!!!! I was covered in it. We couldn't stop laughing.

With a much smaller brush, I did watercolour these little beauties. I so enjoyed making these cards. I'm so pleased with the Stampin UP watercolour paper. As you can see I didn't know when to stop! The Stamp Set is Growing Green with the Curly Cute Sentiment Stamp set.

The papers are the Woodland Walk paper pack with Early Espresso, Wild Wasabi and Very Vanilla.

You can make the Double or Single Box of Chocolates which are perfect for the Ferreo Rocher Chocolates.

The instructions are on the right if you want to play along.

Thanks for Looking,

Card Buffet Cards....

These are a few cards from my Card Buffet Club that I run once a month. I based all the cards on Hostess Sets and the Sale a Bration stamp sets.

This one is using the Cute by the Inch Hostess Level 2 set. These go so well with the Petal Card Punch. The little box is 4 of the petal card punches added together, to make this cute little box.
This is another version of the Owl Birthday Card I made on the previous post. Ideal for a Male Birthday.

This one uses the Silhouette Sentiments Level 1 Hostess Set. I kept all the colours to the In Colours.

Another one similar to the previous.

This set is a Level 2 called Fast and Fabulous. The base card is Crumb Cake. Then Cajun Craze and Peach Parfait. This is a two step stamping one.

The Poppy Parade really pops out against the black. The stamp set is a Level 1 called Because I Care.

This card is using one of the Sale a Bration Stamp set Sweet Summer in Poppy Parade, Basic Black again.

Hopeful Thoughts Stamp Class....

Stamp Classes started back today. The Sun was shining!

It was lovely to be back crafting. We made these sympathy cards today using the Hopeful Thoughts stamp set. It's hard to make these sort of cards at the best of times and they need to be sent or given straight away, so I decided to keep things very simple.

I used Early Espresso, Cajun Craze and Old Olive for my colour combination. The papers are from the paper stacks, Oh! so useful.
Included in the instructions is a Tissue Box cover decorated with the tree and the Vine Blossom Wheel. The leaves on the wheel blend nicely with the leaves on the tree and blossom in this set.
We have been ripping out our kitchen, so its been a real mess here. That's what happens when you use your Garage as a Craft Room!!! hee hee
I hope to get some photo's done and I will upload them later,
Thanks for looking,

Sale a Bration Punch Bunch Stamp Set....

Happy New Year to you All. This time I have used the Punch Bunch Stamp Set from the Sale a Bration Offerings. It's so exciting, We are getting the Two Owl Punch in the Mini Catalogue which will go LIVE on the 1st April 2011

The set co-ordinates with the following punches, Scallop Square, Scallop Circle, 1" circle, Large Tag and the Two Step Owl.

For the colour combination of these two Easel cards, I used Wild Wisabi,Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake whisper white with a hint of Blushing Bride for the flowers.
The sentiment is from the So Happy for You Sale a Bration set.

The scallop circle and square images hold up the card front perfectly.
