Did you miss me? I've been on holiday with my family for 9 days in the Northern Territory. Here's my favourite landscape photo from our trip. This is Florence Falls. We swam in the cool, clear waters of the lagoon/billabong. I'll show you some more of my favourite photos tomorrow.
I had a relaxing Weekend, spent some time with my family and made some Mother's day cards (May 10th in Australia). I was inspired by the challenge at Splitcoast stampers to make a pocket card. Here's my flowerpot. The flowers are on the top of a tag which pulls out for me to write a message on to my gorgeous Mum.
Do you recognise the flowers? They were samples that I made for my "Trend studio" class on handmade flawers in March. My LSS owner loved this card when she saw it and asked me When can I teach it at her shop? I said I'd do a similar design with different flowers...So guess what?- My June classes will be shaped cards. The flowerpot, a baby romper and a cupcake shaped card. Not so much about techniques, more about construction, but it's good to mix it up each month to cater to all the different ladies who seem to have become regulars to my classes.
A simple baby romper suit card for a friend. I'm thinking of teaching a baby cards class soon at Made With Memories.. This design with probably be on my list. People seem to like shaped cards. I taught 5 classes in March. I will be taking a break in April then teaching 3 classes in May based around distress inks. Lovin every minute of it.
I'm in an ATC swap where the challenge is to make your ATC reflect a song title. Well, my Asian stamps don't get enough love, so I went with the song "Turning Japanese" by the Vapors. I made the background with alcohol inks, and gold embossed the Inkadinkado stamp. The dragonfly charm was silver, until I altered it with alcohol inks
Just thought I'd share a photo of the most precious project I've ever made with rubber stamps. It was when I was on the Creative team at the Stamp-Shack. I hosted a challenge to make a piece of wearable art.
This piece can either be worn as a brooch or a pendant. I cut a heart shape from an old CD, covered with Ultra thick embossing powders, stamped into it and added wire and beads. One day I'll have the perfect outfit to wear it with. Until then I'll keep it on my desk as eye candy!
