Mmmm Chocolate (punch art card)


It's the weekend!! YAY!!! I'm not sure about you but generally that means that I get to eat FUN FOOD! Chocolate used to be top of my list for a Friday night movie but I'm being healthy for the Winter so homemade sugar-free brownies with cream go down just as nice!!
This card however was made for Hannah's Drama teacher. Hannah and the other students of Just Imagine Drama school just recently put on the Charlie and the Chocolate factory production! It was decided to get Rubi (the teacher) a gift of flowers and a card for everyone to sign. Well I soon put up my hand to make the card and with a fun theme like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the choice of design was easy!
I saw THIS great card which inspired my creation. I love the foil bit, makes it look more "life-like" and the gorgeous wooden element finishes it all off beautifully! Needless to say Rubi LOVED it and so did the students.... they wanted to eat some! Hee he!!
So whatever you are doing this weekend, may it be filled with some yummy treats, wonderful company and loads of fun!

Sheltering Tree - Winter theme {card 2}

With the snow falling I've been creating some fun Winter themed cards for my classes! I recently showed you THIS card, and THIS so now here is my last one. I found inspiration for this one HERE to create the wonderful emboss resist background.
How fabulous is that sparkle?? Iridescent Ice embossing powder!! A MUST in your stamping goodies! I embossed the tree in Early espresso, then the ground, foliage and snowflakes were all down in the glitter powder. Another lovely greeting in the set "Thankful for you" with just the "for you" being used, same background folder as before and there you have it!
Which one is your fav??
Can't wait to show you more of what my crafting desk has been involved with lately.... hopefully that will be soon!

Sheltering Tree - Winter scene {card 1)


What a totally WONDERFUL WINTER I am having this year!! Have you seen the snow?? Falling in places that haven't seen it fall there in over 10 years..... the term "Winter Wonderland" has been used often in recent weeks and my family and I have seen it first hand! I LOVE THE SNOW!!
SO with such inspiration I was keen to make some snowy themed cards, which I then shared with my stamp club! The ladies LOVED these cards and had a super fun time creating their own snow filled trees. Here is the first one I demonstrated...

I love the softness of the dazzling diamonds sitting on the branches of the tree, the sponged blue ink in the background and lightly stamped snowflakes falling to the ground!

The wood grain embossing background fits perfectly with this set and with a greeting of you warm my heart the card was complete!
I'll come back again soon to show you the other card my ladies and I made, it's a WOW one for sure!

Perfectly Rustics - #52 Anything goes with Glitter! (Sheltering Tree)


It's the last challenge at Perfectly Rustics (FOREVER!!!) and with Glitter as the theme, and their final goodbye I HAD to join in!!
I recently made a Winter card for my niece who lives in WA and is desperate to see the snow here in Tassie! So with a warm fuzzies package sent her way, this was the card I made for her.

I'm LOVING Dazzling diamonds on cards, just the perfect amount of sparkle, especially for a Winter scene! Just add some 2-way glue and then sprinkle on. This is the book that I made as her Snow Gift.
some sequins also make wonderful snow flakes, complemented with blue, silver and white embellishments!

Just want to say HOW FABULOUS Perfectly Rustics has been over the last few years, filled with fun challenges and super inspiration! All the best to you dear Design team!!
