My Favourite items? Well there are many in this catalogue but I’ve decided just to pick one stamp set…The Jolly Friends stamp set and I picked it, because, it had a punch with it and I  could make other things with it non Christmas (Check my blog below for other cards Ive done) Today Im going whole hog Christmas …

My first project is one I’ve done for some Christmas markets locally and also for my monthly team get together in the sunny Bay Of Plenty in New Zealand. 8 tags (all the same). I used Whisper White and coloured in the beard with a blender pen. I stamped on Crumb Cake cardstock and they were all decorated up with the Tiny Treat Boxes. I love these! Just make sure you take the protective coating off the boxes.

The next project was simply just for a market. I found some Santa Italian chocolates at my local supermarket and hey quick and was easy to do and kids just adored them! I used the mica flakes on the hat and the cute bells on them too.

This inspired a card which I did in addition to my card class this week ….and in similar style. An Easel card using the new Stitched Shapes Framelits These framelits are currently on back order as they have been so popular! They will be going into the next Annual Catalogue but once the next shipment arrives you can order these.

My next project is a stamp a stack card…I altered the sentiment from the Merry Mice Stamp set for this.(moose instead of mouse)  My stamp a stacks are designed to make 20 cards in a few hours …4 of each design. I decided not to put the trim on the hat to make it a bit quicker but having second thoughts on that so will be stamping and punching the trims for my own Christmas cards.

Gearing up for the Festive Markets!

I have a fortnightly market I do which keeps me busy!

Ive really just started doing some more festive items to add to my table and found some adorable Popcorn Frankenstein boxes courtesy of Teri French and decided to CASE them.

Here are my versions of Mr and Mrs Frankenstein!

Fun or what?

While I was on a CASE melarky..I also found some Telephone Boxes, dog houses and windmills to try using the Home Suite Home Thinlits. Clever ladies coming up with these ideas!

I’ve also done some fridge magnet post it note holders for the Christmas rush, some notebooks and lots of novelty items. Hope they go down a treat!

So I have a market this weekend so while I was making these to sell..IMG_6187-002

And using the new Cookie Cutter Halloween set, I wondered about making the vampire into a Dad for Fathers Day! (It’s Fathers Day here today in New Zealand) I combined it with the Jolly Friends stamp set by using the elf and the scarf out of this set. 142255GIMG_6184-002IMG_6189-002IMG_6190-001

The sentiment is from the Annual Catalogue (Thoughtful banners and matching punch) . The techniques used were weathered distress and baby wipe and using From land to sea stamp set.

So off we go to the wonderfully kind soul of Monique Fielder!

Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Again

I’ve been mucking around with these thinlits wanting to do a background with them and this is what I came up with!

IMG_4985-003

I really wanted to add some elephants or giraffes in this scene but didn’t have any suitable so just left it bare.

I sponged over in Smoky Slate and Dapper Denim and used the Swirly framelits as well to sponge with to get a stormy sky and moon. I cut 4x the swirly  scribbles. 2 in black and 2 in white.  The tree tops are from the Tree Builder punch. The sentiment is from the Mixed Borders Stamp set.

IMG_4987-003

I just kept the inner card pretty simple.

Its been a pretty stormy weekend over here in New Zealand, so a perfect card for the weather out there!

Have a great week!

JAI #303 Just Add E

Oh dearie me ..I’ve just realised it’s time for a blog post for Just Add Ink..and here I thought it was Thursday and not Friday!

So sorry for the late post!

This week at Just Add Ink our challenge from Tina is to Just Add E!

Of course with Easter coming up, I immediately thought of Easter.

Here’s what I came up with ..

IMG_4426-001.JPG

My little chupa chup bunny is using Friends and Flowers Stamp set (OC) and matching punches. I also used the wide oval and large oval punches and also the 7/8 scallop punch. (which you cant quite see as its on the bottom to make the bunny stand upright and also for the bunnys’ tail). The bow tie is from the Playful Pals Bundle. I used my aquabrush and Sahara Sand ink to colour my bunny!

Here’s my wicked sense of humour with this photo…attack of the bunnies on my poor we Bunny. IMG_4429-001

Do check out what the other girls have done this week on the Just Add Ink Design Team here and I hope you play along with us this week!
