Pairing NBUS with older sets!…


Today I am back to share some more recent card makes. And I have used loads of NBUS stuff!

I’ll start with this new stencil from Stamplorations. I added punched flowers to her hair and finished with liquid pearls. I remember seeing one of the DT add flowers and loved the result so I’ve CASed it. I used my new SU brushes to – these are huge brushes compared to the ones I have been using!

This next one is a wee 3″x3″ card using Jane’s Doodles Wild. Coloured with alcohol markers. I can see this hippo becoming a fav! Oh and more sponging.

A couple of “Cute Fruit” cards. I used my SU Stamparatus which makes making more than one quick and easy! Again the smaller card is 3″ x 3″.

For these next two cards I have used Stamplorations Bloomfully Sparkle with PTI Tag it #3 followed by Stamplorations Bloombully Thankful with PTI Tag it #12. Both are again 3″ x 3″ coloured with alcohol markers.

And lastly another card using Jane’s Doodles to the moon. The small stars are from WPlus 9 Unforgetable and the tied string is from Uniko Garlands Galore. I CASed this card too from one I saw on pinterest.

Thanks for stopping




To the Moon…


Popping in to share a card using Jane’s Doodles to the moon.

I am linking this up to the current challenge at Seize the Birthday here



I am also linking up to the current challenge at Double D challenges here

I used Jane’s Doodles To the moon and back (been sitting on my desk uninked for a few months!) plus alcohol markers and the paper is also a new pack from SU.  All the images were fussy cut and popped up with foam tabs.

I am trying to work my way through my NBUS stash – problem is it keeps growing.  I went to Paperific in Melbourne not really having anything in mind to purchase except my fav pre cut cs.  Figured the entry fee was about the same as my postage would be if I placed an online order.  Well that plan went out the window pretty fast! I came home with the cs plus 3 stand alone die sets, 2 stamp sets and 2 stamp & die sets. Plus I added a few more copics to my collection – would have been more I fear but I left my colour chart at home and had to phone Mr M for some assistance.  Lucky he knows his way around my room & a copic colour chart (can’t say hubby would have found it – probably a good thing!).  Must have been rather amusing for people near me to hear me say “in the white shelf unit, down the bottom on top of etc…”  I could have got him to drop the chart in I don’t live far from where the expo was – probably a good think I just thought of that. – insert red face!
