Baby girl

Just to prove I have actually been achieving this weekend, here’s another card I made using this week sketch over at Mojo Monday.

I seem to have lots of baby boy cards on hand but no baby girl, so that’s what prompted my choice of card this time.

This is this week’s sketch #226

Card: Whisper White, Regal Rose, retired DSP

Ink: Regal Rose

Stamp: Stitched Stocking, Short & Sweet

Other: Pink Pirouette taffeta ribbon, Stocking punch, Designer Label punch, Word Window punch, Rhinestone brad, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder

Until later, happy stampin’


Preston’s Christening

It’s my very cute little one year old nephew Preston’s Christening today.

The family have all travelled down from Queensland to Melbourne (Victoria) for this special event (along with his birthday on Thursday)

Thought I might share this card I made for him.

I couldn’t seem to find a Stampin’ Up! “Christening” salutation, which was a little disappointing, so had to put my paper through the printer  prior to piecing it all together.

I’ve stamped with my SU colours but tried my colouring again with the giraffe with Copic markers & SU marker.

Now as I’m currently away for another week yet, I won’t be posting any new creations, but check out my photo blog kerrishutterbug or click on the link on the side bar to see some of my photography of my travels.

Until later, happy stampin’.

Aussie Cards for Sale – My Expression of Interest

I found Aussie Cards for Sale a little while ago, it’s a wonderful website specialising in Australian handmade cards for all occasions.  

I had a go at trying to see if Alicia would be interested in my cards, but at the time she had enough designers stocking her website.  But I have recently found out she’s looking for more designers, so I’m biting the bullet and showing my interest to become one of her card makers.

I have no idea which of my cards to include so I decided on showing lots…  Here are some cards I’m submitting for consideration:









Do you think I had some better samples that I’ve blogged previously??

Oh well fingers crossed.

Until later, happy stampin’
