Step Chrissy Cards....

Hi all again - here is my 'pride and joy' Chrissy card. I made a couple of these to send to some card making/demonstrator friends. A little adventurous for making more than one and at this time of year but I was very happy with how they turned out. I really wanted something special for these girls as I always get apprehensive when making cards for seasoned card makers.. Yeah, yeah I know, I shouldn't, but I do.... But as I said I was very pleased with how it turned out.

Here is a close up to show the glitter detail (just for fun LOL)

And here is another idea that I got half way through making the other ones. I needed one more card for someone else who loves making things for other people so I thought she would love one of these also.
Ps: All Stampin' Up products
Pss: I got the idea for a step card from Splitcoast Stampers.

Christmas Cards....

Hi all - hope you all had a great Chrissy and that 'Santa' bought you all that you wished for....

This was the first lot of bulk cards I made (after my stamp-a-stack cards). I first saw the idea for these on my upline, Karen's blog long ago so will give the credit there. Hers were a little fancier that mine but I was very pleased with how mine turned out. And don't they look pretty in all the different colours (if I do say so myself... YILM). I was guided by the coloured ribbons I had and made the base card and sentiment etc in the same colour for each one. I so loved how they turned out that I made another batch of 12 for another group. But with those ones I added another layer of card stock and cut out the corners of the white card stock with a small circle punch. I was very please with those also but chose not to take a photo at the time thinking that they were too close to these.... but now i wish I had... (As my DH loves to tell me, "hindsight is a wonderful thing" LOL)

All supplies used were Stampin' Up.

The Last... I Think...

And these were the cards that I made to go with the stamp set for the lucky door prize. As you can see, I have used the Hostess stamp, From the Garden, and have cased these straight out of the current SU catalogue to show the girls how easy, quick and beautiful these cards are and what a great stamp to have. And I was quite amazed myself as to how nice they turned out 'cause they really are such a nice simple idea.

OK I think that is all I have to show from my last workshop (About time! - that was over a month ago and I took the photos as I made the items....

Now I will start showing Chrissy cards so that should keep me going till the end of January ROFLOL!... And let's not forget that we have had a couple of birthdays in there as well LOL.......

Sunday, December 21, 2008

And still more......

I think this is the last of them LOL - These note books were gifts for the Christmas Stamp-a-Stack workshop also. Again I got the idea off SCS and these are cased almost identically to the ones there. They are 'wish lists' but I have made mine just note books. Very cute.....

And I had a small tree which I had covered in candy canes for the girls to take some home for their family members. One of my sister-in-laws came over and helped me make these. (Actually I think she made then all LOL - while I was making other things. I had the tree set up on display with all the presents wrapped underneath and during the course of the afternoon, would draw out a name to come and choose a gift. I had made enough girts so that everyone got one from under the tree. Then at the end of the afternoon I had a final draw for the lucky door prize of a stamp set and a couple of cards. (but that's for another post LOL)

And still more gifts.....

Here are some more gifts that I made up for the girls for our Chrissy Stamp-a-Stack Workshop. I absolutely adored these. And I think the receivers did also. :-))

I have seen many different ideas floating around the net for these and templates also. There is a template or two on Splitcoast Stampers. But the template I have used is a mini pizza box design by
Jen del Muro. I have then added the little curved opening tab which I saw somewhere while surfing once and thought that's a cute idea. Then I made a slider closure to go around it.

Materials used inclusive for both:
All Stampin' Up of course! :-))
Stamp Sets: Occasionally,
Cardstock: Real Red, Old Olive, Purely Pomegranate, Always Artichoke, DS papers from Holiday Harmony and Dashing
Inks: Real Red, Old Olive, Purely Pomegranate, Always Artichoke
Extras: Real Red and Purely Pomegranate ribbons

(Yep that's all it is LOL) But the excitement in this household with that news is overwhelming.... NOT! LOL Except from me!!! Just wanted to tell someone who would understand how I am feeling right at this moment. LOL

OK I'm good now - hope to put something on soon to show :-))

Catch Ya!

Gorgeous Gift Boxes...

Here are some more things from my November workshop - These were a couple of the gifts for the girls. I am box mad at the moment, so all my gifts of late are 'gift boxed'. I just LOOOVE making boxes!!!! And then the other day my youngest son came up to me and asked if he could show me how to make a box he had thought of.... And he did and I was SOOOO proud! He had worked it all out by himself, measuring in the same from each side and all, and where to cut and where to fold and where to stick it I said, I was very proud and more importantly very impressed!!!!

Anyway back on track... I made two of these little boxes (above) with 6 small Cherry Ripes inside each, and I made two of these (below) with a block of chocolate in each. I just love sitting and working it all out so that the item fits in nicely and neatly.

Anyone for 'Cake'????

I know I'm way behind with my blogging, especially with the things from my last workshop, but I promise I will get there. Here is my crowning glory from the day!!!!

I was SOOOOO very proud of myself. These were the thank you gifts for my girls and inside each 'slice' there was two little incentive stamps, a piece of red ribbon and a chocolate. At first I didn't think that I would get it done, then I also considered doing something entirely different ('cause I was WAY running out of time!)but I am and was, so glad I decided to go ahead with it.(even if I started and finished at an ungodly hour!)

I have wanted to try one of these ever since my good friend Jacqui (and one of my wonderful regulars - Hi Jacqui!!!!) showed me some gorgeous 'slices' that she had made plus a picture off the net of a whole cake. The template I have used is from Victorine Originals and it all went together just perfectly! I also placed a piece of artificial holly in the centre to cover the hole but forgot to take another photo.

I must say it was certainly well worth it with the reactions that I got from the girls. I'm so very glad that they liked them considering that I have done them to say thank you for their wonderful and continued support.

Supplies Used:
Season of Joy.
Inks: Old Olive.
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Real Red, DS paper from Dashing.
Extras: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Sticky Strip, Ribbon.

I am so lucky :-))

Hi - just a quick post to show the pressies that I got!!!! At our last workshop, one of my regular gals bought me a little thank-you gift - I was totally stoked!!! The darling Jacqui (Hi again Jacqui LOL) bought me the flowers in the vase and the little card, all of which she made!!!..... Then today when I dropped her order off to her, she gave me the two little Chrissy decos (made from the scallop punch) to hang on my tree.

Now don't get me wrong, I don't expect anything from my girls.... just the fact they come along and hopefully have a great time is more than enough for me... but it was really nice.....

And another regular, (Hi Cheree :-)) also gave me this little beaded Chrissy tree deco that she and her 8 year old daughter had made for me. As I said, I am so lucky....

Something Quick...

What I really love about paper crafts/card making, is how quick it is to make a beautiful inexpensive, but very impressive (if I might say so myself LOL) thank you gift for someone.

An hour before drama class last week I remembered that it was the last one for the year (you ask how can I forget that???) and I had really wanted to get something for the teacher. Soooo... quick as a wink, I whipped up this little envelope bag with matching gift card, filled the bag with a mix of chocs, minties and a candy cane.... and WAH LAH!!!! A lovely little thank you gift (which I might add, I was extremely proud of *{BIG grin}*

Supplies used:
Stamp sets:
So Swirly jumbo wheel, Season of Joy, So Many Sayings.
Inks: Always Artichoke, Purely Pomegranate.
Card Stock: Whisper White, Always Artichoke, Purely Pomegranate.
Extras: Whisper White envelope, Whisper White love note, Brad, Ribbon, Punches: Scallop, 1 3/8 & 1 1/4 circles, Word Window.

Oh! I forgot!...

Just a quick post to say that in my chaos of last week, I forgot I was going to show you what arrived in the mail. A little while back I was the pick for the week for one of Mel's challenges and if that wasn't exciting enough!!!!.... she sent me this little parcel of goodies! Talk about 'make my day' (ps: it did also have a little bag of lollies, but they didn't last very long! LOL)

Isn't it wonderful to receive something in the mail! That warm fuzzy feeling sure beats electronic mail any day! (not that I'm going to stop that LOL)

Thanks Mel!!!!!!

Mel's Weekly Challenge No.1

Mel's weekly challenge for this week was to make a Christmas card using non-christmas colours. I have wanted to have a go at this design technique, of reverse masking, for AGES!!! I think it is such a simple but very beautiful idea. I have seen lots of cards using this idea (one cuts circles out of some scrap paper and then uses the holes for a stencil to make the Christmas baubles - neat huh!!) And when I went looking for the challenge post on Mel's blog, to attach this to, I found one there also LOL. I'm very please with how it turned out (I think it looks very similar to just about everyone else's so I can't go too wrong LOL)

Supplies used: (All Stampin' Up of course!!!)
Stamp Sets: Many Merry Messages, Season of Joy
Inks: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose (sponged shading on bauble), Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant
Card stock: Pretty in Pink, Perfect Plum, Whisper White
Extras: Ribbon, Brads, Diamond Dust glitter, Sponges, 2-Way glue pen

Today was my very first Stamp-a-Stack {YAH!} plus my last workshop for the year {*SOB*}. And what an afternoon!!!! We all had so much fun! {Well I think we all did :-))}

And I am SOOOO proud of my girls!! 'cause we had 9 girls at two stations and we started at approx. 1pm and were all finished by 4.15!! I was expecting them to go till about 5.30 - 6pm 'cause I have been told that my cards were too detailed for a stamp-a-stack. But my girls did it, and in record time!! SOOO proud of you all.

I have mentioned before that I recon I have the BEST bunch of girls that come each month. And today I thought that more than ever. I am very very lucky to have such a wonderful, supportive friendly group. (both groups) And I thank you all for that! (that includes the ones that were unable to make it today - thank you also)

For our first card we have used:
Stamp Sets: Season of Joy and Many Merry Messages.
Inks: Old Olive.
Card stock: Real Red, Old Olive and Very Vanilla and Dashing DS paper.
Extras: 5/8 Real Red grosgrain ribbon, Paper Piercer and Mat, 2-Way glue pen, Dazzling Diamond glitter, Double Rectangle punch, Dimensionals.

Stamp Sets: Season of Joy.
Inks: Always Artichoke, Purely Pomegranate.
Card stock: Always Artichoke, Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White.
Extras: Purely Pomegranate double stitched ribbon, Silver brads, Dimensionals.

KWerner Challenge #28

OMG What is the world coming to!!!! Two posts in one day!!!

After I posted the other one, I started blog surfing and saw that Kristina had put her new challenge up and since I had nothing better to do (ha ha - procrastination in all it's glory!) I thought I could do that - An idea just "POPPED" into my head and I went for it. Now that I see it finished I think I should have waited for another idea to pop LOL - no it's not that bad... is it? Again, it's just not my colours.

Sometimes I wonder if I should not post things that I'm not happy with.... but then there would be a lot less on my blog then there is now LOL - Sometimes I think I may be a little hard on myself....

Colours used: Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red, Sage Shadow and Whisper White.

Mel's Weekly Challenge

Hi all - here is my 'creation for Mel's weekly challenge. It was a colour challenge based on a scenic picture this week, using Basic Black, Chocolate Chip, Gable Green and Whisper White.
I'm actually quite pleased with it - It has managed to turn out quite close to what I had in mind - OMG There is hope for us all!!!! LOL

Friday, October 24, 2008

KWerner Challenge #27

Here's my attempt at Kristina's challenge. Not really sure what I had in mind (actually nothing!!!) Had to use any red for a main colour and any other colours we chose - The Ruby Red was sitting out on top of the box, so I thought that was a good start and picked the other colours using the Stampin' Up colour wheel (such a handy little tool)... And I have stamped the ribbon... had never tried that before, but didn't know where else to put the sentiment. LOL

Supplies used: All Stampin' Up supplies - 'One of a Kind' stamp set, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral and Chocolate Chip card stock, Ruby Red and Whisper White inks, Chocolate Chip ribbon, Brads, Dimensionals, Piercing tool and Mat Pack, Fiskars Texture Plates

Anything But....

Hi all - This is an idea that I have wanted to try for a long time and when Kristy put a challenge on her blog for 'Anything but a card', I thought this would be the perfect opportunity...

But... me being me, downloaded the template for a later date but didn't bother to have a look at how they were made or anything along those lines of common sense!!! LOL. When I was trying to make it, I also couldn't find another one on the web or where I had originally got this from in the first place!!! So had to blunder on alone with no idea what I was doing... so you guessed it... I did EVERYTHING around the wrong way!

But as with all things lost... they always, always turn up just when you have finished!
I didn't like to post this without giving credit, so went looking again and have found that I got this template from 'paperfrenzy' at SCS. (Beats me why I was unable to find it when I was first looking) After seeing this, ya gotta admit it... It's CUUUTE isn't it! But.... after making one, who in their right mind would!!!! No only kidding, it really wasn't that bad... not quite anyway LOL

Ps: While trying to find where I got it from I came across an absolutly gorgeous one HERE and she makes a very important point which I thought of also, that I will certainly do if I ever make another one... Punch holes and tie back straps BEFORE assembling LOL - Oh well, some things ya just gotta learn!!!

Pss: While punching holes in a tiny half complete box with a Crop-a-dile, MAKE SURE other side is out of the way!!!! Again these common sense things that get me every time! ROFLOL

Mel's Weekly Challenge

Here is my card for Melissa's weekly challenge - This week it was to incorporate a wheel into the design. As you can see I have stayed with a simple, yet timeless card layout design. It's not very exciting but I really like it. A great card to make heaps of for Christmas!! LOL. I have seen the brads on the Christmas tree idea quite a bit and just love the simplicity of the idea and how much it jumps out! (Ps: the sentiment does not look smudged in real life.... don't know what happened there... photography *groan* LOL)

Supplies used: Real Red, Wild Wasabi and Very Vanilla cardstock, Season of Joy and Many Merry Messages stamp sets, Leaves a La Carte Jumbo wheel, Wild Wasabi ink, Brads, Real Red ribbon, Dimensionals.

October Workshop

Hi all - well it was that time again! Workshop wonderland and the theme was Christmas! But we didn't get into the Christmas spirit though - thought of that too late LOL - So I have told the girls that next month' workshop is..... PARTY TIME!!! (We will be doing a Christmas Stamp-a-Stack and I have told them that we are dressing up for Christmas - that was met with a few cheers and a few more groans LOL)

Anyway back to this month's workshop - we have made a Free Standing Pop-UP card (tutorial... you guessed it, at
SCS) I have wanted to make a Christmas one of these ever since I saw one late last year, so I finally got to do it YAH! (I think the girls thought so too, YAH that is LOL)
I received one of this type of card recently in a swap, so thank you Jane, as it saved me a lot of time having it to measure off. You can't see them very well, but it has brads on the tree. Some of the girls also put glitter dots as well.

Supplies: Very Vanilla, Ruby Red, Handsome Hunter and Night of Navy cardstock, Season of Joy stamp set and So Swirly jumbo wheel, VersaMark and Handsome Hunter inks, Brads, Night of Navy 1/4 ribbon, Jumbo brad.

We also made this great card that has a slide out insert. (I can say great card 'cause I completely cased it from a swap card by Jean LOL - the only difference is the colours used). Thank you Jean. Isn't this the whole idea of swaps, to get great ideas to use.

Supplies: Wild Wasabi and Bashful Blue cardstock, DS paper from Winter Bright Simply Scrapping pack, Wild Wasabi ink, 2-way glue and Dazzling Diamond glitter, Silver brad, Bashful Blue taffeta ribbon, Horizontal Slot punch.

And then for our novelty item... had the girls working hard today!!! LOL and we still had time for lots and lots of laughter!!! Did I tell you all what a great bunch of girls I've got.......

We have made this cute table decoration. I made one at Karen's last year some time with a flower attached to the lolly stick (that's right... it has a lolly pop inside it) and they have been popping up on a few different blogs again lately. I decided to make mine Christmassy in keeping with the theme of the cards. We have also put little glitter dots over the tree and on the snowflake. Too cute if I do say so myself! Mind you, my tree looks a little small for the 'pot' LOL - but still cute....

Supplies: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla and Handsome Hunter cardstock, Season of Joy stamp set, Silver brads, 1 3/8 & 1 1/4 Circle punches, 2-way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamond glitter.
That's all folks, till next time....

And if you would like to purchase the pre-cut kit with *everything you need (did I mention all pre-cut) to make all three of these great Christmas creations, then email me for details and one can be on the way to you! :-))

Looking forward to hearing from you!!

Just Playing....

This is the other card that my sister and I each made one of, when she popped over on Saturday to see if I wanted to do a bit of card making. (We also made the SCS Accordion card and SCS Split Negative card as seen in last two previous posts) Again it is from a SCS tutorial - Swing (Flip Flop) Card. Ya gotta love that site!!!! The ideas and inspiration there are unbelievable!!!! And you all may have guessed by now that I absolutely ADORE that site. When we are just having a fun day, I love to try their tutorials just to try something new and different, or unusual. I think it gives the cards that extra WOW. It's like, "oh that's a nice card", then they go to open it and WOW!! Ya know what I mean.... We have used the same colour theme as the previous posting as again, the colours are sooo pretty together. We did add some Barely Banana to this as well. Isn't it clever how the centre piece 'swings' - such a simple idea, but soooo effective. Mind you, I seemed to have an awful lot of trouble converting it to our size cards. Wasted a lot of scrap paper. Kept having 'blonde' moments where my mind would go completely blank! People who know me would understand! LOL
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Barely Banana
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Always Artichoke, VersaMark
Stamps: Friendship Blooms, It's Your Birthday, So Swirly Jumbo Wheel
Extras: Apricot Appeal Grosgrain Ribbon, Piercer and Mat

Another 40th....

Hi again - Here is the other 40th birthday card I needed to make. And I didn't use the belated stamp!!! LOL - Had to have it done on time as we were going to the party!!The inside section was done using the idea from the Pop-Up Accordian tutorial on SCS. I have made this card using the same colours as in the tutorial as that card was sooo pretty.
I really like how it turned out! I love these colours together.

Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Rose Red and Whisper White
Stamp sets: Big Deal Alphabet, Cause for Celebration (Hostess), Occasionally, So Many Sayings (Hostess)
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, VersaMark
Extras: Chocolate Chip Wide Gosgrain Ribbon, Heat & Stick Powder, Diamond Dust Glitter, Dimensionals, Word Window punch, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, 1 1/4 Circle Punch, Scallop Punch.

Mel's Weekly Challenge

Here's my card for Mel's Weekly Challenge - this week it was a colour challenge using Handsome Hunter, Yoyo Yellow, Basic Black, Whisper White and Real Red. I have wanted to try the Split Negative idea from SCS for a while now and thought this colour scheme was a good one to try it with. My sister, who was over 'playing', said they were Christmas colours, hence the Christmas sentiment. (In hindsight, I could have used a Chrissy tree then!!! LOL - Hindsight is such a wonderful thing!)
Have I broken the rules by using gold embossing????

Stamps used: Looks Like Spring and Occasional Greetings.
Extras: Clear and Gold Embossing Powder, Black Brads, Dimensionals, Crimper, Paper Piercer and Mat.

Challenging!!! For Me, Yes!!

Hi all - Here is my entry for Melissa's Challenge, which finishes tonight. I didn't think I was gonna make it 'cause for one, the challenge was just WAY to out there for me!! LOL and the other reason, I have been busy making a couple of shirts for my son which needed to be done by today. But all is done!! Very proud of myself at the moment YILM!!! :-))

Anyway you are probably wondering what the challenge was if you don't already know (and haven't already gone for a peek) - It was to make a card with NO layering! What the?... How is that possible I asked!! And Mel replied with, using the base card with embelishments but no more cardstock. I think I have smudged the 'rules' line here a bit LOL, but after wracking my brains for a week, I thought 'embelishment' - I will go with one LARGE one LOL!!!! But then it's made out of CS???? Ok so maybe I cheated a teeny weeny bit LOL.....

And much to my surprise, I actually quite like it. Well whadda ya know!!!!

Sunday Funday...

Hi all - My sister popped over this morning to make some cards (she rang at 7.30am Sunday ?? What the?.... to see if I wanted to)

I still hadn't gotten round to making that birthday card that I had wanted to make. So in between helping her make a couple of cards, I made this card. I started out by using a colour challenge from
Makeesha, that I missed (by about a week!!!! LOL) The colours were supposed to be Elegant Eggplant, Soft Sky, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White. Since I missed it, I thought I could change the colours LOL, so I have left out the Soft Sky. I was going to add a touch of green but decides the leaves were enough. I have also glittered the flowers. I just LOOOVE that look - Soooo pretty!!!I also love the spiral pop-out from SCS (link in earlier post) so have done that again for an added surprise for her. AND don't forget that 'Belated" stamp LOL....
My sister had made one of the spiral pop-outs also, but since it was the same as the the one I had made in an earlier post, I didn't worry about posting that one (sorry sis).

But she has also been wanting to try the pop-out lettering from Extreme Papercraft, so I showed her how. The rest of the card is pretty much her own doing. She did get some inspiration from
Kylie's card for the front.
I'm certainly impressed with how it turned out, especially the inside - I think it looks amazing.
Bye for now.....

Ps: I have another 40th card to make before the weekend - I wonder if I'll be using that 'Belated' stamp again.... ROFLOL!!!

KWerner Challenge #24

Hi all - I finally got round to getting a challenge done before times up. Yah for me!!! But I've decided that Autumn colours are NOT for me! I didn't mind this until I saw the photo and then almost didn't enter it. But then thought, what the heck - I've gone to the trouble....
So here it is, my entry for Kristinas challenge #24.

A Belated Challenge...

Hi all -These two cards were made using a challenge idea by Makeesha - the challenge was to use a card she had chosen in the SU catalogue for ones sketch layout and make up three different cards using the 'sketch idea' - Well I got the first two done, but didn't quite get round to the third one - had planned to, just didn't happen!!! LOL

This was my first card. Was wanting a birthday card for a fellow team member's birthday, but didn't like this as much as I would like. Soooo back to the drawing board.....
So then I made this one, which I LOVED!
But I also used the SCS Spiral pop-up tutorial for this one, to give it a little extra....

I was very pleased with this one, but as you can see from the front sentiment, I procrastinate too much and put too much worrying into cards for specific reasons. Sooo it was gonna be late!!

Which comes to the reason that I haven't got a third one done LOL. I needed another birthday card which I was gonna use for the third card for the challenge, but..... The challenge is finished and the winner announced!! LOL And I still haven't made the b'day card, AND the b/day in question is TOMORROW!!! LOL. That 'Belated' stamp certainly gets a workout from me!

Sam's Challenge...

Hi - Here is my card for Sam's Challenge. Not sure what I think of it yet..... I have tried to do a Crazy Patchwork idea. I have used Rose Red DS paper (from the small sampler) and printed the other two colours with VersaMark to make up the background. I have used a full piece in the Soft Sky and attached the other two colours to it. Then mounted it first onto Rose Red and then onto a base card of Pretty in Pink.
Anyway - please let me know what you think. Good thoughts hopefully LOL.


Hi to you all and welcome to my blog.

If you would like to email me regarding anything on my blog, then please use email listed in 'View my complete profile' section.

Many thanks and hope you enjoy my blog...... :)
