This card I made is cased straight from page179, the pretty flower card bottom left. I used the flower stamp from Flower shop (page126) stamped in the scrummy, new Watermelon Wonder in-colour!!

How? You Ask?
Well the wonderful people at SU did the general sessions as a stream (just a couple of hours after) so the children and I sat in the lounge room, happily watching the ladies on stage at CONVENTION!!! It was very cool indeed, we all got a giggle out of it, sitting there in our pj's, watching, learning and being "wowed" by the great samples.
One of the sets shown was the new Sprinkles of Life. Sarah (Shellie's daughter) demonstrated this one and the AMAZING things you can do with the set. I fell in love with it (especially the fact that it has a cloud and a tree in it, with a matching punch too!!! YAY!!) and had to CASE her card designs.
The raindrops look so fun by using different coloured papers
and then adding a hint of silver to compliment the sentiment on the card.
The cloud is done with silver embosing powder!
I used the dainty little flower stamp to create a background and embossed the main flower image, then coloured it in, adding pearls for some bling!
The basket handle look is created by using the candle stamps....SO COOL!
Fun shaker card with the apples going into the basket!! SOooo clever!
Note you can make a bigger tree with the set too,
OHHH the possibilities!!!
Tree image can also be used as a branch
and the foliage as a nest for the sweet little bird
Sarah showed that making the ice-cream water colour
gives it a vintage feel, just like a colouring book.
Then if you stamp on tissue paper you can make a waffle cone look!
Like I said, her cards were WONDERFUL and were most certainly screaming to be cased!!
What are your fav sets in the new catty?? Love to hear from you,

I held a calendar class with my stamp club so we could ALL make one, it was a really fun time with lots of ideas of how to decorate and the occasional mistake when not realizing that each printed page has the EXACT days for each month!! What does that mean?? Well I happily stamped and demonstrated "February" on a 31 day page, and June on the 28th page!! Be sure to check your pages before stamping!!
There are HEAPS of wonderful bits of stamping candy left over in the kit which can be easily used to make cards...... I've just come up with 2, but there is OODLES more that you could do!
What have you done with your left over bits??? Love to have you share your ideas,

We are certainly in the middle of Winter here in Tassie!! Not so long ago I took the children to the snow... it was the most wonderful time! Sapphire especially enjoyed it! She experienced her first "taste" of snow!
I went with the chalkboard technique for this page using the Everything Eleanor stamp set. The images in this set are PERFECT for a snowy layout.
Hopefully we will be off to the snow again, it's such a wonderful way to spend a Winter's day!
