The Roses Challenge......

Good Morning Blogger's 

Today's card was made for The Roses monthly challenge. Olga, Betty, Kim, Connie, Kerrie and I make a card to post at the end of each month taking it in turns to host the challenge.  Craftie Connie chose this month and she asked for 'flowers'.  I'm sorry Connie I didn't read the directions very well, Kerrie explained that you wanted to see some dimensional flowers.......oops failed! I'd already mailed this little card to Canada as May was also Connie's Birthday!  

This Orchid image from GKD was coloured with Copic markers and cut with a Spellbinder die.
I love the colour of this card - I'll call it Magenta (?) I just added some glitzy ribbon and four clear dew drops to complete what was a quite quick card to make, I probably spent more time colouring the Orchid!!

Hope you're all enjoying your week Sydney we woke to some pale sunshine with a nice breeze. No Cyclonic weather yet, though the South Coast had a rough night so it could be heading our way!

BIG news from wet and miserable Sydney.....

Hello Blogging friends, I hope all my American friends are enjoying the Memorial Day long week end and that the weather is good so you get to spend time outside with family and friends.

I was watching a program on TV last night that was filmed at the Chelsea Flower I so want to go one year....the colours and designer gardens are to die for. The reason I mention this is that the weather in the UK looked good too (How pleased am I, Walshie and I will be there soon). Here in Sydney it's wet and miserable with the terrible cyclonic conditions we've been warned about due to hit tonight or tomorrow.

It's good crafting weather though and I am mega busy.....Annabella Stamps have 11 new sets due to release starting from 14th June. Previews will commence from 7th June with the new stamps introduced a few at a time starting from 14th. Andrea is working on some fun stuff too, so keep watching the Annabelle Stamps Blog and the DT's blogs for all the information. I can't give too much away... but I can tell you that there's something for everyone with these new stamps. I'm having lots of fun making up as much as I can before we leave.

Just a quick card to post today which uses Waltzingmouse Asian Gardens, I love this set and this tree in particular.

I've used Maroon, Kraft and white card for the stamped image. Sponged the edges to take away the stark white. The Kraft has been stamped with the large background stamp with a couple of Asian charms for a bit of bling. I've stamped an extra small foliage cluster to pop up on foam for some added interest.

That's it take care all and stay dry!!!!!

Annabelle Stamps - Say It With...Ribbon.

Hello Blogger's,
It's time for the Friday Annabelle Stamps Challenge which this week is Say It With...Ribbon.
My card takes it's colour theme from the pretty lime green and tuftan flower ribbon available from Annabelle Stamps.

      layer of pale green lined card.

3.  Stamp image from Flowers with Love to white embossed card using SU close to cocoa ink.
4.  Cut the image out using a Spellbinder Labels 4 die, emboss whilst still in the die.
5.  Using Copic markers colour the image. (There's lots of 'Feather Blending' around the Aussie blogs at the moment...this                  is feather blending my style.) Using foam dots adhere the image over the three strips of ribbon.
6.  Stamp the sentiment from the same set in SU close to cocoa, in bottom right hand corner.
7.  Add three 3mm toffee sprinkles in top right hand corner and to the centre of the two flowers.

Hope you'll take a moment to go check out the other design team members cards this week and if you haven't yet entered your card for our sketch challenge have till next Thursday evening (our time) so there's time yet. I've seen some lovely projects so far why not go to the Annabelle Stamps challenge blog and check them for yourself, check out the cute Helen's Birthday stamp set that Andrea will send to one randomly picked entry.

We've been warned to expect some extreme weather in Sydney over the week end......high winds and lots of heavy rain ....I hope they're wrong!!!!
Have a great week end all..........

Waltzingmouse Stamps for Challenge Heaven

Hello blogging friends,  
what's happening in your part of the world?  Here in Sydney we've had a day of constant rain and I believe, though I haven't set foot beyond the drive, that the roads have been chaotic!!! Nothing like rain to cause problems on the roads here........

What do you think is this card a bit on the large side for my little blog? I've just realised that I can choose to make my pics extra large.....not sure how this will look!

I've used Claire Brennan's Waltzingmouse Stamps set, Asian Gardens for this card and the sketch is from Challenge Heaven's May Card Challenge.


1.  Cut Pale pink card to 4.25" x 5.5". Add a layer of white card followed by a layer of dp. (Beautiful dp, an oddie from              
     Wishmade Co.Ltd.)
2.  Stamp the image in SU Close to Cocoa on to P W card sponge the edges with Antique Linen distress ink.
3.  Cut the image using a Spellbinder Label die, Cut another shape from pink card. Adhere the pink card to card.
4.  Emboss the pale green card with a Cuttlebug Script embossing folder and cut to size. Adhere to card over the pink mat.
5.  Emboss a piece of darker green card with a Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder and cut the scalloped edge with a   
     QuicKutz 12" scallop die. Adhere to card adding 5 pale green Dew Drops.
6.  Attach the stamped image over the pink mat using fine foam tabs.

That's it till Fridays Annabelle Stamps Challenge, I'm trying to get one or two cards made to pre-post for whilst I'm away......don't want you to forget about my little blog!!!
See ya....

Just beacause.........

Just Because....... I have been missing for a couple of days I thought I would post this little cutie tonight.  I've spent the last couple of days surfing the net ready for our trip, which is looming up fast!!!
If you clicked onto my blog about an hour ago you might have thought you were in the wrong place!!! I was playing with new blog backgrounds.......I feel like a change but can't find anything I like yet!!
This little card is going into the following challenge:  A Spoon Full of Sugar   which is cute and girly.
This little image is one of the ones we stamped off at the Copics Certification Class. I thought I might use my Inkadinks to colour her for a change but wish I'd stuck to Copics for her little face!!!  Nothing I've tried colours faces like Copic markers.
The Base card is a 5 inch square of black card with a layer of American Craft followed by the Basic Grey  Kiosho Paper.   Mulberry Roses and some punched leaves  fill the top corner and I used Copics to colour a white heart pin as well as some white double faced satin ribbon. A Spellbinders Fancy Tags die was cut for the Annabelle Stamps Sentiment.
That's it for now, my friend is home from Hospital and coming for lunch with me tomorrow so I'll have my catering hat on.......Poor her!!!!!

Till next time, take care............

Anyone for Plaids???

Hi all,

I hope wherever you are it's a bit warmer than it is in Sydney at the moment.........17c it says on my computer, I'm sitting with the heater on!!!

 I've been playing with a few different things today and threw then all into this one card ...... what do you think?

I love this Plaid stamp from Waltzingmouse Stamps Pic - Nic Patterns and decided to try quite a simple plaid in brown and orange.  I actually masked half of my stamp for the orange stripe but it worked really well, stamped onto SU Kraft. I saw some great plaids on the Waltzing Hop earlier in the week, so need to have a play.

I also saw a couple of these paper lace doily flowers this week and tried one for myself ..... the verdict is still out ..... not sure if I like them or not I love the scruffie flowers and tissue flowers bettter I think!  Mine has a centre scalloped circle that was cut using a SU punch with a button sitting over that.  I  distressed the white doily with Antique Linen Distress ink then spritzed it with gold glimmer mist.  

For the first time I used a scalloped die to cut some felt......oh love this......  think I might try cutting felt Nesties next!!  I just added a row of hand stitching to mine for the card.  I picked this die up at my local Spotlight store.

This gorgeous kettle is from a Waltzingmouse set called Afternoon Tea and I've stamped it in  Bronze VersaColor ink.........I think it looks like an old copper kettle the kind you stand on a range.  I used a Spellbinder die to cut this out and again used Antique Linen sponged around the edge to age it.

The sentiment from the same set is stamped in brown VersaColor onto some Kraft and a length of crochet cotton added to the cute teabag label Claire gave us on her blog.  I'm entering this card into a challenge over at Create4Fun which this week is vintage. Challenge - Week 21.

Well better get this finished I've had a day of playing  and we are due at my Brother's place for Dinner so better get my skates on.

Hope you all enjoy a restful week end see you back here soon I hope.

Just want to let you know that Andrea has been busy working on some fabulous new sets. We're all very excited and can't wait to get our hands on them!  Keep watching, there will be some previews soon.

OK so this week I've made a little Birthday card and a pillow box for a small gift (all the best gifts come in small boxes isn't that right girls) **wink**.  I love this  SU Melon Mambo card, just using VersaMark gives a great patterned look.  I did combine a couple of sets this week so here goes:

1. Stamp the small flower from Helen's Party onto SU Melon Mambo using VersaMark Ink.

4.  Using foam tape add the coloured image over the three black stripes and add four small pink gems
     From Annabelle Stamp Pink Petal Kit
5.  Add three more pink gems, large, medium and small.
6.  Inside the card stamp the sentiment from Helen's Party in black ink and one parcel which has a       
     Copic coloured ribbon.

For the Pillow Box:

1.  Cut the shape from white embossed card.  Score the top and bottom folds.
2.  Add three 1/4" M M strips, and stamp two small flowers from Helen's Birthday. Colour with Copic              
3.  Stamp the sentiment onto a scrap of white card, score just in from the edge on four sides and attach to
     the front of the pillow box.
4.  Add one small pink gem to dot the 'i'.
5.  Fill with something.......delish!

The inside of my card looks like this:

I can't remember where I got my template from for this little pillowbox but click here for a pattern if you think you might like to try one for yourself.


I had some lovely news this morning from Claire at Waltzingmouse stamps.  My gift set using Asian Gardens has won me a prize!!!!! How very exciting, I get to choose another set.  Like all stampers I have a wish list so it's just a case of deciding which set I can't live without!!!  Thanks Claire x

OK, don't tell Walshie but I've added an extra two sets to the set I won!!!!!! How BAD am I???.. ROFL..
Oh and guess what else happened today.....the postman delivered to my address the parcel I sent Mum for her birthday in Jan. marked NOT COLLECTED????...........erghhhh.. I'll be hand delivering that in June.....ho hum.....

Till next time..............

Feel Better Soon

Hello all, one of my friends had to go into hospital on Tuesday and I popped in to see her this afternoon. Didn't think to take a card with me as it was all a little rushed, so came home and whipped this little cutie up ready for my next visit!
1. Cut one piece of pale pink card to size, with a top fold.
2. Stamp the GKD image from Spring Mix onto white embossed card, colour with Copic markers.
3. Cut and emboss using a Spellbinder Die, attach to card with foam tape.
4. Attach four brass self adhesive dots and score a line with the aid of my Scor-Pal.

I'm quite enjoying making these CAS cards for a change!

Till next time......

For you...From me...with love!

After my last long post I think I might keep this short and sweet!  

Here's another card made with one of my new Waltzingmouse Sets, which Claire calls Big Blooms - Chrysanthemums. I was really just playing and this card is the result,  I quite like the bright pink and lime green.

Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz

Hi Blogger's

I've had the best week end playing with new stamps!  My new Waltzingmouse Stamps to be precise and they are amazing to work with.  Beautiful quality clear stamps that stamp so well and the designs are fantastic.

The friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps are having their Blog Waltz with the theme of BIRTHDAY'S. Waltzingmouse Stamps are celebrating their 1st Birthday!!! If I've got this all organised properly I'm joining in!   Click HERE for all the hop information from Claire's blog.

My First project uses Claire's 'ASIAN GARDENS' set. So many lovely images to play with and one LARGE background stamp that I love!  I've made a gift set containing four cards with envelopes and a note pad and pen.  It took me a while to sort out just how I was going to put this together and I'll own up right now and tell you that after I took some photos, decided to change the front slightly - I'm sure you'll pick it!

See my new favourite stamp ..... gorgeous border stamped in Close to Cocoa on PL pure white card stock. The bottom border punched and layered over some SU dp and brown American Craft Card.
This amazing tree is stamped in a couple of sections the trunk (love this) again CTC direct to SU Kraft.
There are two stamps to cover the foliage and I've stamped one a couple of times and cut it with a sharp craft knife to pop it up. I stamped this over some SU dp.  A piece of matching ribbon/tape to close the case.

Now inside was  making the box-pocket to hold my four cards and again I stamped the large border over some Kraft card for this. A Spellbinder oval die with my Cuttlebug machine cut the shape for me.
The blank note pad is a cheap buy in a pack of about six ready to decorate.  I just added some Kraft card to the back of it and some strong tape to hold the pad in place. More strong tape for the pen loop.

Here are my four cards, have you spotted the change I made?  I laugh each time I look at this photo!
I've used two of the sentiment sets so that these cards don't have to be Birthday greetings.  Look at the bird cages ...... how cute are they?   All the stamps I've used are from the same set, only one piece of DP used for the whole project and there is still some left over......hows that for me!  With so many great stamps who needs dp!  Some ribbon, gold twine and a few Kaisercraft pearls where the only embellishments.

With some of the left over pieces of card I made a large (ish) gift tag.......well it could become a bookmark! What do you think?

This set is going home with me in June for my Mum who never received the set I sent her in January!


I also made a Birthday Card..........this features stamps from Claire's sets 
'PIC - NIC PATTERNS'   a great selection of border patterns and
'AFTERNOON TEA SENTIMENTS'  which goes very well with another of the May sets 'AFTERNOON TEA'  (I haven't opened that one yet!) 

PL pure white base card cut to 5 inch square with a layer of pale green American Craft Card followed by a layer of dp from the Kioshi Paper Pad by Basic Grey.  Next a piece of plain dp from the same set was stamped in SU pure plum ink using one of the background patterns from Pic-nic Patterns. A spellbinders blossom die cut one large piece and another small one ready for the Sentiment.
I've stamped the teacup onto some Basic Grey Kioshi dp and cut it out and using foam dots attached it over the stamped blossom shape.  The little posy of Pansies was coloured with Prisma's and OMS before cutting these out and attaching them in the same way as the cup.
A scalloped border overlayed with some lace and satin ribbon tied in a bow complete this card.

Phew...... if you've read right to the end of this post ...... Well Done!!!   

I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone has made with Claire's sets though it might have to be Tuesday my time, I think we're 9 hours ahead of Ireland.  

I've more to share so watch this space!

Till next time...................

Magical Monday - Picture Inspiration

Hello Blogger's ...........How was your week end? Did the sunshine where you are and did you manage to get some crafting time in? I was luck enough to get both though it's getting a bit cool of an evening here now, cardigans and ugg boots to the ready!

I'm sad to say this is my last post for Magical Monday at There's Magic In The Air. Going off on our travels early June made this the time to step down. I've had so much fun working with Nina's lovely images and along with her and her inspiring design team the weeks have just flown round. So my thanks to Nina and the 'designing divas' at TMITA/PCC, I wish you well and hope we can stay in touch. I'll be playing along with you as soon as I'm home..... and checking out all the inspiring projects if I get access to a computer at all while I'm away.......shhhh ... don't tell Walshie!!

On to this weeks challenge which is set by Nilla. We are asked to use any of Nina's images to make our project this week using the following photo as the inspiration.

It's a beautiful picture don't you think, I'm sure these orchids are sitting in Nilla's home...lucky girl.

Here's my card:
I've used Nina's image 'Sunday Afternoon' for my card. I've coloured the image with my Copic markers, cut it with a Spellbinder die and sponged the edges whilst still in the die. This is a lovely image, great to colour and could be used for all sorts of projects.

For the pale green background I've used a couple of my new stamps from Waltzingmouse stamped in New Sprout onto some pale green card. I've added some lace and satin ribbon before attaching the image on foam dots.

The sentiment is another WMS stamped in black onto white card and sponged, I just rounded two opposite corners to fit in with the die cut image.

Hope you'll play along with us all again this week, we love seeing which of Nina's images you feature as well as all the different styles of cards submitted. Nina, as always has a prize for the randomly picked winner........check out this cutie, it could be yours but as they say 'You have to be in it to win it'...... so get those thinking caps on.

Click HERE for info.

I'm hoping (if I get my act together and work out how this works....ergh so far I haven't been able to link the picture sorry !!!!) to have some stuff to share for a Waltzingmouse Blog Hop that starts at around midnight our time tonight. I've been playing with new stamps over the week end and am loving these beautiful clear stamp sets. Hope you'll call past to take a peak!

Till then.............

Edit:  Sorry I've updated the posting page and can't work out how to link the picture!!!!

Ruby Wedding!

Thank goodness the week end is here! I know, I know for us SAH types week ends don't mean quite the same......... BUT it's been such a tedious week here, I'm so please to draw a line underneath Friday and start again!!!

Thought I'd show you the card I put together 'by request'! Delish Webster's Pages paper from one of the 6 x 6 packs Selma sent me from Joan's store. Thank you Selma I l o v e this paper and thought it would be great for this Anniversary Card.

My 6 x 6 inch card uses a whole sheet with the centre cut away to show some Swiss dots embossed red card, I've placed my sentiment in an oval to sit over this section. Ribbon threaded lace sits across the top with roses and babies breath added to the side along with pearl hearts, heart pins and the gold embellies. I added Cherry Sprinkles to the Sentiment oval and a Cuttlebug die cut swirl for the bottom corner.

I found a great sentiment for inside this card, I always give a couple of choices, after all the person giving the card knows the recipients!

The card is boxed and I've decorated the lid with some Kaisercraft paper with a ribbon and scalloped strip, to which I added the Kaisercraft tag. A couple of the same Cuttlebug die cut swirls complete the lid.

That's it for today, thanks for dropping by. I need to get busy with some projects over the week end but I'll have my last DT card for TMITA on Monday, hope you'll call by then.

Asian Wishes


I got my new sets from Claire at Waltzingmouse Stamps yesterday, she had a huge release of eight sets and they were all great. I had a hard time deciding which to order and ended up with six sets! Last night I sat looking at them all and couldn't make my mind up which set to start with........does that happen to anyone else? In the end I turned to SCS and decided to make a CAS card for their challenge.


1. Fold a the card to make a 4.25 x 6 inch card.
2. Punch along one edge of 3 x 6 inch P L Ivory card with a Fiskars Upper Crest punch.
3. Cut a a strip of Webster's Pages petite papers Collection Triple Pack, Seaside Retreat, Garden Gala & Nature's Storybook (I think this is Garden Gala!). Making sure to get the lantern in.
4. Punch along the bottom edge of the dp with the same Fiskars punch before attaching it over the PL card.
5. Stamp the sentiment also from 'Asian Gardens' directly to the dp in close to cocoa
6. Stamp the exotic bird from WMS 'Asian Garden' just above the dp. Stamping twice once with SU close to cocoa and baja breeze and then a second time with just the baja breeze.
7. Pierce across the top of the PL card and attach to the base card with double sided tape.
8. Add four 3mm Blueberry Sprinkles from Annabelle Stamps.

Hope you like this one...........leave me a comment let me know if you read the Method will you, I can't decide if to add this or just post the cards.

I'll be back tomorrow as Friday is Annabelle Stamps day! Hope you can drop past.

Till then.......

I spy with my little eye..........

Hi Blogger's,

I hope your week is going better than mine!!! I've had a sore eye that was giving me a problem for a couple of days and by yesterday the swelling had gone down. Then this morning I woke feeling like I had grit in my eye. By lunch time I'd decided it was time to visit the Doctor who removed a foreign body from my left eye! Not sure what it was or if it was the cause of the earlier irritation but thank goodness it's gone. Hopefully now I can get back into some card making because I really haven't felt like it!

Enough winging from me......... I thought I would post this little navy and white card today. It's a CAS card using a navy base with some embossed white card and three Annabelle Petals. I've added button for the centres with the two white ones tied on with crochet cotton. The sentiment is from Annabelle Stamps too.

I've been asked to make another boxed card for an Anniversary and I'm using some Webster's Pages paper with some roses............ Hope to have that ready to show you tomorrow.

I also received another beautiful RAK from Crafty Connie......ah thanks Connie, you're very naughty but nice too!!! Connie has set the challenge for the 'Roses' May challenge so I better get that underway.

Oh and today new stamps arrived to play with...... yeah!!!

Life is good.......... See you soon,

Magical Monday - Softly Afloat CAS card


Hope you all enjoyed a restful week end!

Today's challenge at TMITA/PCC is to make a CAS card using Nina's Image Softly Afloat.

I've printed the image twice and coloured one completely with Copic markers. On the second image I coloured two flower heads and the butterfly before cutting them out. These have been added over the main image with foam dots. A sentiment from Annabelle Stamps was stamped below the image before punching the SU lace border on both sides of the card.

The base card is SU riding hood red to match the flower heads with a piece of knotted white satin ribbon added to one side.

A really quick and easy challenge this week, hope you will be able to join in the fun. Go check the design teams cards for more inspiration. Nina will give an image of your choice from her Paper Cupcakes on line store, to one lucky randomly picked winner. So what are you waiting for!

Till next time.......

Happy Mother's Day

Hello Blogger's,

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mums out there!
Here in Sydney the weather is beautiful - clear blue sky with lots of sunshine. I think the parks and beaches will be full of family get together's today. I just had to pop to the local shopping Mall and it was very quiet, which for a weekend is unusual!

I'm about to work on a couple of cards and I have some beautiful Webster's Pages paper pads and silk ribbon to play with. Thank you Selma and Joan you girls are too kind.

I'll see you all later.

Thursday's Copic Certification


As promised a couple of photos from the Copic Class held in Sydney on Thursday.

I've long been a follower of Marianne Walker's blog and have found it an invaluable source of information about colouring in general and colouring with Copic markers particularly. As soon as I read on her blog that she was coming over to Sydney for a Certification class I got my name down, never really thinking that I would be able to get a seat.

Getting the phone call to say I was in and that both Marianne and Lori Craig from Splitcoast Stampers would be conducting the class was a real thrill. I have to thank X-Press Graph-X Supplies P/L for giving us the opportunity to learn from these two amazing artists. It was such a good day.... learning new techniques and confirming information that I had read on the blogs.

Apart from the papercraft enthusiasts, like me, there were store owners and suppliers in the room so it was interesting getting to chat with some of them and to try out some of their products, card stock in particular. I've always bought my good stamping card from the US but will be happy to buy from local suppliers in future...... having the opportunity to try on the day was great. Meeting up with blogger's I knew but had never met was a fun part of the day too.

If you use Copic markers and get the opportunity to attend a Certification class I would highly recommend that you do, you won't be sorry.

Thanks especially to Marianne and Lori for making the day a fun learning experience. Marianne will have gone back to her room with odd coloured earrings and a green wedding band........After proving that you can colour most things with Copics! I have to tell you that I'm thinking one of the Air Guns would be a great tool to own...haha....but maybe after I complete my Copic Set!!!
I hope the girls enjoy their week in Melbourne and leave Australia knowing they've made a difference to some of us Aussie paper crafters. I believe the plan is to train some Australian crafters to carry out training programs in the future so it will be interesting to see which Copic users these will be.

Just a couple of pictures to share.

Sorry.......I hate having my photo taken but it's not right to put others here and not this horrid shot of me!!!!

Hope you'll call past again!!!!!!!!!
