Happy Tails Stamp Set, Dog Builder Punch

Hi everyone,
 

This is another Christmas card.  This was made with someone in particular in mind.  A friend looks after our dog, Dash, while we go away.  He is getting on in years now, about 9 1/2 years old.  Recently as I collected him after our holiday, our friend's daughter offered to take Dash for a walk.  After it didn't look too hard.  Dash lays around the house next to a person to keep him and his neighbor company, like any arthritic dog might. This young woman was surprised that Dash likes to pull his way around the neighbourhood barking at other dogs as he passes them. He certainly wakes the neighbourhood up.  When he returns he returns to his usual demeanour, looking like an arthritic dog.

I created this card using Cherry Cobbler Card stock and  Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper.  I used the Dog Builder Punch and  Happy Tails Stamp. I used the Story Label Punch and Gold Foil Sheet.  I really loved the result, I hope you do too.

All of the products using the first card can be purchased from Stampin Up. If you live in Australia and you would like to place an order over $250-00 (before shipping) you will receive 10% in Stampin Up Rewards.  Click here to place your order.

To Be A Wild Rose

Hi everyone,

The Magic Technique is something that I have wanted to try for sometime.  Well recently I watched several YouTube videos but I found the following one was most useful.  Sandi MacIver seem to be the easiest to comprehend. 



I made two each of the cards above.  Yes, I can see that they are not perfect.  That’s okay. 

I used Highland Heather, Crumb Cake and Poppy Parade Card Stock. I also use the Craft Stampin Pad with Whisper White Ink white  Highland Heather, Poppy Parade and Old Olive Stampin Up Ink Pad for the colours.

All of the products using the first card can be purchased from Stampin Up. If you live in Australia and you would like to place an order over $250-00 (before shipping) you will receive 10% in Stampin Up Rewards.  Click here to place your order.

Gingerbread House 2019

Hi everyone, 

Our family tradition of making a Gingerbread House for Christmas happened again early December.  This is the 34th Gingerbread House creation.  As our children grew they were very interested.  There have been years were we adopted s9me young children for the event. Now our children are having children pf their own, they are more interested in showing their children how to decorated the Gingerbread House. 












Yes, it is a sugar overdose event.  Fortunately it is all about the creation and having fun together. The kids tend to pull the lollies off after it has been smashed, and the adults pick at the gingerbread. Mr T has hold of the meat tenderizer in the following photo.  This is the only time that the meat tenderizer gets used. All the young kids participated in the smashing of the Gingerbread House on Christmas Day but I don’t have anymore photos. 


I hope you enjoyed another rendition of our yearly Gingerbread House Tradition. 

Blessings

Hi everyone,




These are some of the Christmas cards that I created for the recent Christmas. I made over 100 cards.  Most of them were sent out. Some were posted to people at the church and others were for family.  I thought I might have had some left.  Guess what?  There is only a handful left.  So I need to replenish my stock on the next 12 months. That is okay. I still have Christmas designer series paper left.

While I bought all this beautiful paper, I didn't want to use it.  If I used it, I would have nothing left.  Silly concept, I know.  That is how I thought.  Anyway, a fellow Stampin up Demonstrator gave me the permission to actually use the paper, and showed me how to cut it so that it won't be wasted. 

I hope you like the cards that I created.

Christmas Tags

Hi everyone,



When you run out of sticky tags for parcels, what do you do? No you don’t run to the shops to buy more, you make them.  These aren’t sticky tags but suitable to label the presents for Christmas. 

My trusty Pine Tree Punch came in handy again.  I love this punch.  

It is another #loveitchopit#.   I used retired Christmas designer series papers.  I have make room for more.  
I hope you like these tags.

Hi everyone,




I send birthday cards to everyone at church. January includes a child's card.  It seems that I either had toddler cards, or dinosaurs.   While they are always popular, I have used them numerous times.  There is a good chance that this boy has received one in the past.  

Anyway, I needed to make more. 

I have stamp containers of designer series papers.  I don't seem to use them all up. There is always lots left.  So my mission for the last couple of months is to use the older paper to make room for new papers.  

Do you know how hard that is.  Between working, looking after the grandchildren, a little patchwork, and creating cards for classes, there is not much time left.  Thankfully, I had some time off during Christmas and the New Year. 
 
This is the video that got me started.  While I bought all this beautiful paper, I didn't want to use it.  If I used it, I would have nothing left.  Silly concept, I know.  That is how I thought.  Anyway, Kylie Bertucci gave me the permission to actually use the paper, and showed me how to cut it so that it won't be wasted. 

I hope you like the cards that I created.
