Hello. I recently had a Stampin Up party ... and therefore have some new goodies!
Here is what I have done with them ....
This first card is using the Daydream Medallions stamp (hard to see on the black card in this photo) and the matching Floral Frames Framelits. I've used and embossing folder in the background and a lovely sentiment also from Stampin Up - A Word For You (already had this).
My next two cards are using the sensational Lacy & Lovely stamp set! I just love this. The sentiments are included in this set too. I love the colour combo I used ... just fluked it really because I wasn't really trying very hard .. was just using up scraps.
Very happy with my new cards :)
Thanks for stopping by ...... gotta run ... today is my Birthday ... hip hip hooray! And I have a cake and dinner to make and sadly a sick child :(
But I've had a great day so far and enjoyed making some cards.
Yes I know. .... I don't put much up on my blog anymore ... I'm trying though.
Today I was asked by a friend to make a card for a little girl's christening ... so here is what I came up with ...
the top card was made using some gorgeous Stampin Up papers sent to me quite some time ago by my lovely friend Shriley. The sentiment is from a set I have .. I think it came from Kmart but I can't be sure. The bear is a Kasazz stamp. I have distressed the edges and used a die to cut some patterns to go across the centre.
I really like the cuteness of this card. It is made using layers of sparkling card stock and then I used a Cottage Cutz die called Tree of Nature .. and yes I cut them in colour .. LOL .. next time I will cut one set in white and then colour them!
Just a quick post ... I'm off to bed .. didn't get much sleep last night :(
Feeling a bit pekish? Like a cookie but without all the 'bad stuff'? then this is for you!
I grabbed this recipe of FaceBook a while ago and have finally tried it. Firstly I made my own peanut butter (commercial peanut butter is full of nasties and will also be to oily .. but you could use a natural one if you don't want to make it yourself)
Peanut Butter Recipe
Ingredients - Raw Peanuts
Method - shell the peanuts, roast on an oven tray until golden and smelling yummy ... be warned though they will continue to cook for a while once taken out of the oven ... so don't let them get too brown in there!
Peel the 'skin' of the peanuts and process in a food process until it looks like peanut butter!
I'm very lucky and part of my Bosco mixer can very finely do this ......
Well it has been a long time between posts and a long time between colouring and creating!
I'm really pleased with this card ... I made it for my Daughter's 4th Birthday this week.
I used this super adorable image from Lili of the Valley Ltd and some gorgeous papers from Dovecraft called Garden Party. The sentiment is from Stampin Up and the banner is from Kaisercraft (Fine and Sunny range).
My daughter's favourite colour is orange ... and it was lovely to create with all those fruity colours.
I made this card the night I had to bury my lovely cat ... he was nearly 18 years old ... and sadly my Husband hit him with the car that day. I was devastated .... I cried the whole time making this card ... but it was great therapy .....
I will miss my beautiful boy ... and so will Madalyn.
