Seriously sixty second gift

This what I love about cards. They can be fast.
This week I pooped into to see a lovely friend of mine who has a lot on her mind and a heavy heart. I know that she loves black jelly beans so I picked some up for her and tapped out this card in, I am not lying here, 90 seconds! I was a little shocked my self. Using basic black and white and the new SU Upsy Daisy set. It did help that I had the idea ready to go by the time I got to my desk!

All in a weekend's work

I am not sure why I actually bought this Cowboy stamp set and feel a bit nervy using it! Here is my first go. Also, I must acknowledge Jayne Mercer for the Paisley design, very simple and makes a great design for making a set of gift cards; fast and effective.

Mother's Day Card

This design has been all over SCS galleries, so many gorgeous flower pot cards will go out to lovely Mums. I will be making them also for my Mum, my MIL and my lovely Aunty Joan. Here is my Mum's version in pink.
I punched out flowers using pretty papers and stamped a few flowers from SU Blooming Friendship set (retired). I used sentiments from a new company based in Adelaide SA
called Orange Jelly...will post their link soon!

Sweet Sarah Kay

As a child I LOVED Holly Hobbie and Sarah Kay. Sarah Kay stamps are now out! Yay. I got mine through Scrapbook boutique which is becoming a favourite place for me to spend money. A wonderful range and great prices. I highly recommend it, plus Evelyn is just LOVELY!

Well here is my first Sarah Kay card and the first time I am using my Cuttlebug embossing "borders" folder which I think will be very handy. Keeping it simple and girlie. I can see I will continue to love this stamp, it stamps so beautifully with deep etching. Love that!

Little china Doll

I got these new Hero stamps yesterday! Yummy! I love little China or Japanese dolls, I simply adore "Kimi" dolls and this stamp set has a whole heap of little kimi look alikes. Cute as!

Joy Fold Card

I have seen quite a few of these on split coast stampers so i thought i would give one a go. This one was to go with a gift for my lovely friend Yvonne. Yvonne has driven me along with her endless source of inspiration, she is always saying a prayer for me and I am lucky to count her amongst my friends. Love ya Yvonne mmmwah!

Card Bender

I have been on a bender! These babies are up for grabs at the St John's Heidelberg Fair, Sat 4th April.
ONE day I will get a grip on my new camera and the photos will start showing some quality; so apologies
for the photo quality , again!

I think the techniques are obvious, lots of dry embossing, punches and layering. If you would like to know
anything specific, just ask in a comment and I will reply ASAP.
