Hello

 School holidays are under way here. Yesterday we had a visit to the dentist for Ms 15, Ms 10 and me. Ms 15 and I had a seal on a tooth each and I had to have a filling replaced as it had fallen out and I hadn’t noticed! My dentist’s father had put the original filling in when I was much younger. Today was a trip to the orthodontist for Ms 15 to check her plate. I think that is all the necessary stuff sorted so we should be able to enjoy the rest of the break.

Anyway you didn’t visit today to hear about our dental visits.

Today I am sharing a card I have made using a mix of stamp sets.

I wanted to get another masculine card made for my stash – I think I will have a few more boy birthdays soon.

I am linking to the challenge at Uniko – Anything goes with optional twist of masculine here

and

Virginia’s View Challenge #16 here

I had the Uniko stamp set Background Builders Round in Circles, SU Smoky slate and Real red inks on my desk with Island Indigo ink when I saw the SIP challenge. I switched the Island Indigo for Bermuda bay and added the new set of SU Awesomely Artistic and the Uniko Studio Classic Numbers sentiment.

Here is my card

I mounted the main panel onto SU real red cardstock. I have kept most of the stamping to the bottom 2/3.

And here is my card

Uniko nautical treasures (640x459)

I created my own patterned paper using Uniko Nautical Treasures in SU River Rock and Smoky Slate inks. The main image from Uniko Nautical Treasures is stamped with SU Smoky slate ink. I mounted with SU night of navy cardstock. I used Mama Elephant Sew Fancy Dies to create waves, pattern beside the main image and the stitching around the sentiment panel. I also used Inspired by Stamping Fancy Label dies 3 and a 2″ circle punch for the sentiment panel. The sentiment is from PTI Star prints stamped in SU night of Navy ink. The sentiment panel was attached to some double sided adhesive paper I have had for ages and attached to some fun foam to give dimension. The twine is from Annabelle Stamps.

GRAB OUR BADGE

A few of the DT at SBB used Teresa Collins Everyday Moments paper. Knowing I had some hoarded saved I have used a little of it here.

ME Waterblooms (527x640)

I stamped Mama Elephant Water blooms with SU Daffodil Delight ink onto my white card stock and die cut with my brand new NBUS stitched tag from Mama Elephant Basic Set. I also cut one from my patterned paper. The yellow patterned paper is also cut with a stitched die from the same set. I stamped the sentiment from (NBUS) Mama Elephant Up and Away in SU Night of Navy ink. I punched a hole and threaded some ribbon through and tied with twine. As a finishing touch I added a few sequins from my stash.

Now in all fairness it took me a few tries to get this together. First I tried heat embossing gold to find I was trying to emboss glitter! After blowing gold glitter all over the floor No 1 in the bin. Second attempt used the gold embossing powder and was not happy with the results. Bin again. Third and fourth attempts uneven stamping – yep the bin again. By now I was a little determined. So my card now complete has my Fifth and final attempt at getting an image.

Before I go I want to share this quilt I finished recently

black and yellow 1 (640x564)

I had a jelly roll I purchased a while ago in my fabric stash and added the yellow and cream stripes of the same width. I layed the pieces out until I was happy with the colour flow, stitched the rows together and then proceeded to complete with 50/50 cotton&bamboo batting.

I used a yellow fabric on the back which has a circle pattern along with the black stripe for interest and to get the width of the fabric needed to back the quilt.

black and yellow back (626x640)

I quilted in the ditch along the horizontal lines only. I finished the quilt with black binding.

The finished size is 132cm x 144cm

Hello

The cards I’m sharing today I am linking up to the following challenges – I haven’t played at either of these sites for ages so it was about time!

I am sure I had a white onesie with a yellow Tweety bird embroidered for my baby (now Ms 10).

and

SU - Made with love & Something for baby blue-red (640x408)

and

SU - Made with love & something for baby girl (640x371)

I stamped my images from Stampin UP! Made with love and Something for Baby and die cut using Baby’s First Framelits.  I stamped 8 onto white cardstock. The striped ones I stamped twice once with a black outline and once in colour. The little butterflies come from The Greeting Farm Build a Onesie.  I used various inks including Stampin UP!, Tim Holtz and My Favourite Things. I coloured the details using Tim Holtz distress markers and Stampin UP! markers. All the onesies are popped up with foam tape. The sentiments are from Stampin UP! Made with love and Simon Says Stamp Baby.

Must go netball training pick up time!

Hello

I really have no excuse for my lack of posts. I have been creating trying to use new things before I put them away. It is great idea in theory however I seem to have fallen behind.

Today I am sharing cards I made using Jane’s Doodles Garden Friends and Jungle Baby along with sentiments from Inspired by stamping Celebrating 2 years.

challenge_graphic-June-650

And as my cards involve a bit of colouring I thought I would link them up to Kathy’s blog here

Jane's Doodles - Garden Friends & Jungle baby (640x525)

I started by stamping 6 different images from Garden Friends and Jungle Baby on Xpress it blending cardstock. I coloured these with various alcohol markers over several days/nights whenever I got a few minutes. I then mounted each one onto coloured cardstock and attached to my card fronts. The sentiments from Celebrating 2 years and Jungle Baby were then stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Thanks for stopping

Until next time

Hello

A little while ago I was asked by a mum at school to make a special card for her daughter’s confirmation this weekend just past.

Here is the card

Best hop to it. I have a few reports to write from home today.
