Gingerbread house 2017

A bit late, but fun.
 
 
 


 
 


 




 
I make a Gingerbread House every year for Christmas.  I started when our daughter was 3. Well she now has a little girl of her own.  I have been making these for many years. 
 
This gingerbread house is not about perfection.  It is about family getting together and creating something together.  As our children have grown and probably become blasé, we have enlisted other young children to create this.  Maybe next year I might be able to find some previous gingerbread houses.

Mr T turns 5

Hi,

‘You can call me Birthday Boy today.’  Someone is not excited, are they.

We have a birthday lunch at our place for every birthday.  We usually ask what they would like for lunch. Mr T asked for party food: popcorn, little sausages, party pies, sausages rolls and, of course, fairy bread.

For those who are not Australian, this is typical birthday party food. Even when Australian are adults, this food brings back fond memories of their childhood parties. 


This is Mr T.  Such a funny, adorable and likeable little chap. 


This is the card that I made him.  I used Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay and Whisper White Cardstock, Pick A Patten Designer Series Paper and the Number of Years sentiment with Large Number Framelits. 

I hope you like it too. 

Some of the above products are retired.  However the cardstock can be purchased if you go to 'Placing an Order' at the top of the page or clicking in the next paragraph.  If an order is placed for more than $250-00 (before shipping) you will receive 10% in Stampin Up Rewards.

Art with Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop featuring Berry Burst


Hi everyone,

I am part of this blog hop this week.  I have wanted to be a part of this blog for several weeks.  I either didn't have that week's particular colour or didn't have the time to think and create. This week my card supplies are covering the kitchen table again.





I don't have a room particularly set up with cards supplies.  I actually get them out each time and create the mess above whilst creating my cards.  I thought you might like to see the mess that this card below, was created from.....




I created this card by using Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist and Whisper White Cardstock.  I used the Vases Builder Punch and the words came from Varied Vases Stamp Set. I also used the Berry Burst Metallic-edge Ribbon.

I love this colour selection.  Bright crisp cards are my go-to cards when I try to create something that is uniquely me.  I hope you like it too.

These products can be purchased from Stampin Up. If 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.

Large Letters

Hi everyone,


This card was created for mum’s mother’s day.  She will turn 90 later in the year.  Mum also make cards and sells them to people in her retirement village.

Like a lot of my cards this was a process.  I enjoyed seeing many people using the Large Letter Dies on Pintrest for a number of months.  These were on my Wish List for some time, others were need first though.  Yes I bought them last month.  Well, I was very lucky because they are being retired as of 30th May.

I created this card using Berry Burst and Olive Green Cardstock and my favourite Designer Series Paper, Sweet Soriee.  This is also being retired at 30th May.

These products can be purchased if you go to 'Placing an Order' at the top of the page.  If an order is placed for more than

Baby Wipe method

Hi,

I have been watching several YouTube sites.  This card was made using the Baby Wipe Method. It is a play with colours.  Something different. 

I choose a colour combination that i would not normally choose.  I actually love the card. I used Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Whisper White Cardstock with Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Smoky Grey stamp pads.  I created this card with Flower Shop Stamp Set and Pansy Punch.




There are many youtube sites for this method. Brenda Keenan from Keenam Kreations created this video.  I hope you enjoy it.

Mr 7



Master 7 asked to make a card yesterday afternoon whilst he was here.  He selected his colours which were rose red, garden green, turquoise blue, perfect plum and daffodil delight. He selected the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set and Amazing You Stamp Set.  His creation was stamped on Whisper White Cardstock and place on Fresh Fig Cardstock.  He was very adamant and decisive when making his selection.   

Master 7 thoroughly enjoyed creating this card and successfully stalled the moment that he left at Nana and Pop’s. 

Master 7 intended to give his card to his teacher, Miss T.

Ian and Leanne’s Quilt

Hi,

For those of you who read my blog regularly, do you remember me blogging about a quilt that was doing my head in.  Well it is finished and gifted.

I asked my brother several years ago, what colours did he and his wife like.  Ian stated neutrals.  So I started collecting neutrals which translated to me as being different versions of cream. Well, I have quite a selection now.  However when I put the fabrics together I couldn’t do anything with them.  There did not seem to be anything different. Whilst there were patterns within the fabric, there was no anything else.

So I started sourcing more fabric.  I went to a huge patchwork shop. I knew if I could not find anything in this shop, there was nothing to be found.  Well I came away with a story of fabrics.  Different shades of blues, greys, fawns with a cream as the sashing between each diamond.

I always wanted to create this quilt.  I have always called this The Jane Austin Quilt.  I'm not sure if that is the correct name though. So Ian and Leanne’s quilt was always going to be this one.



This first photo shows my incorrect placing of the diamonds.  As shown below the quilt is suppose to be a square.  The photo above shows a diamond.  Not Happy.  My mum used to say that you have not made a garment unless you have unpicked it.  Well there was a lot of unpicking on this quilt.



Well the quilt has been given to Ian and Leanne.  They like it, that is the main thing.  I can start another quilt now, with some colour in it.

Blessings

Petal Pallete Stamp Set and Petals and More Thinlits Dies

Hi

Sorry, I have been a bit slack lately.  Two new grand babies and trying to finish a quilt does not leave much time for blogging.

Todays card

I took a different approach which this card.  I usually choose the stamps set and commence a card.  This time I chose the colour combination and  began creating this card.  I’m trying to get away from my usual colours and trying to branch out. 

I used the Petal Pallette Stamp Set and Petals and More Thinlits Dies as well as Eclectric Expressions Stamp Set and Tailored Tag Punch.   I use Bermuda Bay and Rose Red Cardstock with Bermuda Bay Sequin embellishments.

CASEing the Catty


Hi everyone,

I found time last week to enter CASEing The Catty.   My dad turned 90 last week, hence I needed a card.  





I CASEd the card showing on page 41 of the Occasions Catalogue.  
 
I created the card by using Night of Navy, Crumb Cake Cardstock and Gentleman Designer Paper Series.  I used Large Numbers Framelits, and Banner Triple Punch. The Happy Birthday stamp came from Your Inspiring Stamp Set. I created the Navy Happy Birthday by stamping on  the VersaMark Pad then stamping on Night of Navy Stamp Pad then onto the cardstock. I used the Heating Tool which created the glossy look.
 
I hope you like this card.  I am very happy with the card.   My dad liked it too.

Wedding Cards

Hi everyone. 

Another busy week. Another grandchild born this week.  Last week we met a new little grandson and this week a little granddaughter arrived. So much joy.  Our grandchildren have double within the week. 

Today I am posting a wedding card that was made several weeks ago.  My hairdresser wanted some wedding cards with lots of glitz. It has been a process for me.  I dont do eleaborate or very gltzy cards.  So I wondered if they would be suitable.  Yesterday I visited my hairdresser and she bought another card.  



This one was created by using Vanila Cardstock, Gold Glimmer Paperback. Happy Wedding Day came from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set and Mr & Mrs came from a retired stamp set.  I think I bought the heart embossing folder from Kaizer Crafts.


I created this one using Whisper White Cardstock, Silver Glimmer Paperback. The embossing folder is also not Stampin Up. 


Most of these products can be purchased if you go to 'Placing an Order' at the top of the page.  If an order is placed for more than 
$250-00 (before shipping) you will receive 10% in Stampin Up Rewards.  

If you order, until the end of March, for every $90-00 you will receive a free stamps set, designer series paper or shimmery ribbon

Or you can place an order by emailing me on
