August Stamp a Stacks

For August I thought we would do one Christmas card and one non-Christmas card for those who can't handle dealing with Christmas this early.

Stamp a stack will be held at my house at 7.30pm on Thursday the 6th of August. Price is $15 for 10 handmade cards or $18 if you would also like envelopes to match. Hope to see you there.

Blackboard Effects

This was an interesting experiment using black card, versamark, daubers and watercolour pastels. It is dusty like a blackboard. I used the stamp sets "Baroque Motifs" and "Live like you mean it" (new hostess set).

Forest Friends Owl

I finally got to use my new set "Forest Friends" from the new mini catalogue. This has the sponging, moon effect from our July stamp a stack with Not quite navy and black background and stamping. The tree needed something so I used dazzling diamonds on the leaves for a nice shimmery effect as well as in the owls eyes. Finished off with white SU Ribbon.

Pink Leggings Brigade

Sorry about the bad photo

This is part of Mica's birthday present - a picture of the three girls at their play date where they all happened to wear the exact same pair of hot pink leggings! I am so glad we got a photo, though it wasn't easy!

I have used the new "Great Friend" stamp set here as well as a flower punch, markers, "Defined Alphabet" stamp set and non-SU ribbon.

Mica's birthday caterpillar

I did a few cards based on the layout
we used for stamp a stack in June
(kids cards). Here are my 3 slightly
different attempts.

Each uses Bugs & Kisses stamps,
Designer series paper,
Scallop punch, markers,
Dazzling diamonds glitter

My Family frame for preschool

We needed to give Jovi a framed photo of her family for preschool. Here is ours.

Used a basic frame, painted the frame pink then used designer series paper on the bottom half (teared). Brocade blue ribbon on the left hand side. One of a kind flower with dazzling diamonds glitter inside. The words are embossed in silver, cut out and glued on. There are also a couple of pearls attached to the right hand side.
