Mojo Monday 135 – Card 2

Thought I’d make another card with the colours I was wanting to use last night for the Mojo Monday Week 135 sketch.

I’m using colours to match a series of cards to go into my Card Purse – which is a birthday gift (replacing something I had already made)


Card: Tempting Turquoise, Rose Red, Bali Breeze DSP (retired)

Ink: Rose Red

Stamp: Sincere Salutations

Other: Scallop Edge punch, Extra-Large Two-Step Bird punch, Tempting Turquoise 1/4″ grosgrain ribbon, non SU scallop circle die, non SU bling

Well I’d better get the rest of the cards made, so shall share them later with you….. Until then, happy stampin’



Mojo Monday 135

Found this sketch although a little late as its about to change for another week, but thought it would challenge me to go out of my comfort zone.  I played with colours for a while but just before I started glueing I changed it to be all one colour instead of multi coloured card…… not sure its one of my best but it is late at night…… 

 I used a little Dazzling Diamonds to give my icing some sparkle! 

Card: Rose Red, Whisper White, Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper

Stamp: Big Bold Birthday, Whimsical Words

Ink: Rose Red

Other: Scallop Border punch, Whisper White 1/4″ grosgrain ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds, non SU scallop  circle die

Until later, happy stampin’.


Punch Art Flowers

Hi everyone, 

Just sharing my Mother’s Day card I have made using the 5 Petal Flower punch.

I punched out two 5 Petal Flowers for each flower, scored them down centre of petal to the middle of flower & folded them to give dimensional depth to each flower.  I stamped & cut out the flower from Cottage Garden (Autumm-Winter Mini) & added to top of other punched flowers, positioning them to alter each layer on the petals.  To hold them together I used a rhinestone brad.  They are attached to the card by a Dimensional.

Close up:

Card: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Whisper White

Stamp: Cottage Garden, Occasional Greetings

Ink: Rich Razzleberry

Other: Top Note big shot die, 5 Petal Flower punch, Extra-Large Two-Step Bird punch (leave stem), Clear Rhinestone Brads, Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder, Bone Folder, Dimensionals.

Umm now my Mum will see this post, so I guess I will have to come up with another design for her now….. love you Mum!

Until later, happy stampin’.


Lucky Me

Well I’ve been very lucky this week as I’ve received another 5 cards as RAKs (random act of kindness) & one of those being my GTKY card from Theresa in yahoo group Stampin Up In Oz.

Unfortunately the recent rain wasn’t kind to a couple of them, but only one ended up showing the water damage 😦



Now I’ll have to get busy for my return RAKs to all these wonderful girls.

Thank you Julie, Karen T., Therese, Karen G., Liz – they certainly were a lovely pick me up this week!

Until later, Happy Stampin’
