Merry Little Christmas Card

This card started out different in my mind,
as many cards do. 
But once finished I could see myself using 
this style and layout to make many cards.
It would be good to whip up lots of cards
in one session. 
Once you have stamped and cut out the
Stampin Up ornament images, it's just
a matter of putting the card together.

Snowflake Cards

Here are some cards I made to 
showcase the new Stampin Up
stamp set and matching framlits,
Festive Flurry.
Living in Australia our Christmas is far from
snowflakes and cold.
But as most of us have grown up with snow
images of Christmas I really love this set.

Stampin Up's Extra-large Gift Box Decorated

There is nothing better than a plain box to decorate.
I love all the Stampin Up boxes. There are now many
boxes in the catalogues and all have great decorating options.
I went for a vintage feel for this box.
Embossed some cardstock for the sides and made
a dimensional snowflake for the lid.
I am now going to make one in the traditional green & red.

Santa's List

I have been creating some cards with
the new Stampin Up Santa's List stamp set.
This is one of those stamp sets that
works well for simple cards as well as
more detailed cards.
I really cannot go past such a jolly Santa.

Bon Voyage Dear Friend

I love to make Bon Voyage cards.
The idea of faraway lands, new experiences and
fun times is so exciting.
I made this card for a dear friend who has had
the most trying year. So I really hope she
gets to have a great time in the USA.

A Vintage Wedding Card

It's wedding season here in Australia.
I have been kept very busy with Stampin Up
and my other business.
So it was really nice to sit down and spend a few hours
making this card for special friends of ours.
Vintage weddings are really the go to theme this year.
I was inspired to make this card from the tags I posted 
previously for another wedding.

The card. 

The envelope.

Bridesmaid Thank-You Tags

I recently helped out with a wedding.
I made these tags to hang from the gift bags
for the bridesmaids.
The wedding was themed Vintage so I had
plenty of supplies to make things with.
It's a nice feeling to know that on the day a
little of my creativity will be present.

August Stamp Club

This time at Stamp Club we had a Father's Day theme.
We made two cards and had a play with the
Stampin Up Tag a Box.
We embossed the clear sleeve of the box and popped
some DSP under the sleeve.
