Greeting Card Kids

This is the card that I demonstrated earlier today at our Team Stamp-a-Stack event and Monster Garage sale. The card uses the stamp set Greeting Card Kids and I think it's quite a cutie and is ideal for a little person in your life.  I've cased this from page 14 of the Annual Catalogue. I really like the message on the card which comes from the More Merry Messages stamp set. There are lots of different messages in this set and they use some very cool fonts. 

Thanks to everyone who came along today to make it the success it was - I hope you enjoyed yourselves and managed to nab yourself a bargain or two!

Two Tags Box

This is one of the Make 'n Takes I made last month when I attended the Stampin' Up! Heartfelt event. I hate to admit it, but it is also the only project that I've actually finished. However, I do plan to rectify that very soon ~ so watch this space! 

It's a little box made from the Two Tags Bigz Die. Very innovative don't you think? Inside the box are five little note cards. I love these colours together. 

Stamp set: Clockworks, One in a Million
Card Stock: Calypso Coral, Whisper White, 
Ink: Calypso Coral, Gumball Green
Designer Paper: First Edition Designer Paper
Accessories: Gumball Green Dahlia
Tools: Fancy Flower Punch, Stamp-a-ma-jig

It's a beautiful day here in Auckland today and I'm just about to walk my dog Oscar so I'll get to enjoy some of the sunshine. I've got the day off work to catch up on some domestics and also prepare for our Monster Garage Sale and Stamp-a-Stack team event we're holding tomorrow.  Hope you have a GREAT day!

I had a play date on Sunday afternoon with two lovely ladies {waving at you Rhonda and Linda} and this was one of the cards that we made. I am also embarrassed to admit this was the first time that I've used this set. I've had it for over 18 months, so it was good to get it inky. I've cased this card from Kelly Rose, a demonstrator from Nebraska. She has some lovely work if you want to pop over to look at her blog here. 

Stamp Set: Morning Cup
Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler.
Designer Paper: Love Letters (retired)
Ink: Staz On Black, Cherry Cobbler.
