Washi Banner

The heading says it all. It's a card with a washi banner. Easy to make and fun to play with as the banner is not stuck down to the card. I have used my grunge stamps for a little texture in the background.

My favourite item in the catalogue..... the new simply sent kits on page 161 of the catalogue. These kits are just beautiful, and good value too. For $22.95 you get enough supplies to make 8 lovely cards with divine matching envelopes (that have polka dot insides). The die cut pieces are just perfect. For this card I put in some melon mambo cardstock just to change things up a bit. If you have not looked at these kits, I urge you too.. You won't be disappointed.
You can order some from my online shop and have them delivered in a few days. Just click the link at the side of the page.

Tag a Bag

The new boxes are just awesome. So easy to make up, so easy to decorate and use. The size is also very versatile. Big enough for so many gifts, but not overwhelming. I have put some scarves in mine and they fit perfectly.
I adore smoky slate in a way I have never loved gray before. It just seems to go with everything.

Frosty Christmas

The weather outside is so cold at the moment, it has inspired me to make these frosty cards. I have used my Evergreen stamp set, that I purchased last year and never got around to using. Terrible of me. I combined it with the beautiful Coastal Cabana cardstock, DSP and ink. I adore this colour.
This card was based on one I saw by the fabulous Shari Carroll. I have long admired her work, and it was fun to recreate one of her cards using Stampin Up products. Finally I can make tons of buttons with the new clay and moulds for next to nothing. So excited!!!!

New In-Colours, yum!

I just love the new In-Colours. I think they are the best we have ever had. Yeh!
This is a simple card using a few of them. Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe and Coastal Cabana - such great names.

More washi.

Here is another quick card using washi tape. I thought this would be good for a teenage boy. Best of all, quick to construct. I tend to never spend too long on male cards!
Thanks for dropping by today.

Washi, washi

Have you noticed the new washi tape available on page 171 of the new catalogue. I have found it so much fun to play with. It just adds that something else to a card and best of all, only takes minutes.
This card uses the Gingham Designer Tape.
And this card uses the Epic Day This and That Washi Tape. I love that you can reposition it, if you make a mistake (something I do constantly). You can tear or cut the tape, and best of all, its really economical. Got to love that!
