Mosaic Techniqe

My sister-in-law asked me to make her a card for friends Birthday. I knew she was into Mosaic and Lead lighting so I found this technique...
You start by cutting up back ground  rubber that comes with your stamp sets, and stick the pieces to a block to form the Mosaic look. Than stamp an image of choice in my case the rose from last years hostess set, and colour it. Then stamp your Mosaic stamp with versa mark over the top and clear emboss. Then use a stamp pad, colour of choice and rub it all over, now you should be able to use a tissue to wipe the excess ink off the clear emboss and be left with the colour in between. If you have any questions just give me email I'll be happy to help.

Hope you like it!

Pittsworth Craft Fair

Well it seems I had forgotten to show you a picture of our little table at the Pittsworth Craft Fair.
I did this one with my good stampin Buddie and great friend Chris, for three days we perched ourselves behind here and enjoyed the every bit of it. 

When I said little table I wasn't joking, but we did seem to cram a lot into our allocated spot.
Not much inking of stamps lately ;o(  but as soon as I do you will be the first to see it.

Happy stamping

My upline Lisa gets us together once a month, this is to help each other learn some new stuff but I think we eat more chocolate, drink to much coffee and have a tonne of laughs instead.  Occasionally we have a challenge/swap and this month we had to find a picture from a catalogue or magazine to draw inspiration from, now I don't buy magazines and  when you live out of town the only catalogue we get in the paper is Wow or JB HiFi and we all know that when we think of these we instantly think of the bright red yellow and blue, so that is what I ran with, and this is what I came up with...
A little boring I know but hey so are those catalogue's!!!

Friends Never Fade

I just wanted to pop in show you a card I made with the new stamp set Friends never fade, I really like this set but when I got it out to use... nothing!! So I struggled on and on and sat and looked and thought about it for while, and after all that this is all that would come...
Now the old Mojo has been a little slow lately from all the craft fair cramming, but in the end I don't mind it, it's growing on me I think it's the colours Orange is not me, what do you think?
Well off to do my once a year flutter on the horses and have a gala lunch with some good friends at a Melbourne cup luncheon. Hope you all back a winner ;o)

Two for the price of one!!

Stampin Royality have a great sketch this week to play along with  and Just Add Ink is pretty much up to your imagination with the theme Just Add Birthday, So I used the sketch from Stampin Royality and made a Birthday card.... so you see I get two challenges out of the one creation!

Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #45….

I just love a sketch challenge, and this week Keesh gave us great one to play along with ....
I was originally going to stick with the plan and use a heart, but decided to flip it to landscape and this is what I came up with...

I used the old faithful Upsy Daisy Stamp set with some old olive striped ribbon and some Pretty in Pink satin ribbon, now this satin ribbon is to die for.... If you don't already have some you don't know what your missing Just Devinne!!

Well,  I seem to be on a roll with the eye candy this week, Have to keep my good friend and stamping Buddy Chris happy!!

Thanks for dropping by

Once again I have used the Just Believe Stamp Set and the Tres Chic back ground which is now retired ;o(

Inking up some new rubber!!

Hi All,
Once again I apologises for lack in the posts, I have been run off my feet with Craft fairs etc... No excuse I know.
But finally I got to ink up some new rubber that has been screaming out "use me please" for some days now.  Now this month is Anxiety and Depression Awareness Month and Just Add Ink ran a challenge to raise awareness, go and check it out. The challenge was to just add blue, now I was a little slow at uploading my card and missed the challenge cut off, but because I feel strongly about supporting I still played along....
This is what I came up with, using what I think will quickly become one of favorite stamps sets - Just Believe!
Well today is my first full day at home in 16 days, and boy it feels good, I don't think I have moved from my desk all morning and I am not planning to move for the rest of the day, (I hope the maid brings me lunch lol). Hopefully I will whip up a few more things to post for you later.
Until then...

Happy stamping

Spring into the country

If you have been wondering were I have been, I was springing into the country at the Geham craft fair and wow what a fantastic weekend I had. My upline and friend Lisa and myself spent the two days there and we had a ball not only meeting and chatting with customers but the other stall holders as well. Here is a picture of our little stand. Now I can't wait till next year already!!!

Now I thought when this was over I could rest.... but not quite, now I am preparing for the Pittsworth Craft and Fine Food Spectacular on the 8th, 9th and 10th of October, yep three days. If your in the Toowoomba area you should really check it out as it is a big event with a wide range of craft stands.
So any way back to the cramming.

Birthday time

Seems the only time I have to make just a card lately is when its someones Birthday, and today is Sophie's Birthday...

I hope you had a great day!

I was saying that some colours are camera shy, and it seems Elegant Eggplant is one of them, it seems to want to come out nearly black all the time and to make things worse we have been having very overcast days, not very good picture taking weather at all.

Thanks for stopping by

A note of Thanks

Last Sunday Hubby and I celebrated another Wedding Anniversary (boy how the years fly by) and my good friend Chris never forgets, in fact I think she remembers more than Hubby does!!!
But every year we get a beautiful Anniversary card from her, so this year I'd thought I'd share it with you all
So here it is... beautifully hand crafted by Chris....

So Thanks very much Chris I really do appreciate your friendship and caring.

I'll be back tomorrow with another Birthday card I have made, just struggling to get a pic seems some colours are very camera shy!

Box in a Bag

I told you I would be back today to show you some more of what I have been up to...
Yesterday I mentioned to a friend that I hadn't made a card just for the sake of making a card for a long while now so that is what I set out to do but the Box and Bag Bug caught me before I could finish it,  so instead I whipped up these cute little box in a bag's the template can be found on Split Coast.

And yes they are headed to the markets...

Maybe I will go and try that card now, I know I have a few Birthdays coming up!! so I really should get on to them before its the last minute cram the night before!!

Just Add Ink #29

I haven't had a lot of time lately to just make a card, as I am getting ready to attend a craft fair in about 6 weeks, that's why you have been seeing a lot of card packs and 3D items from me lately!
But I needed to make a couple of cards today, and what better way to get the mojo working than to join in a couple of challenges, at Just Add Ink this week is a colour challenge and here is what they gave us to play with...
The first card I made was a Thank you card for a friend, so it will be sent off in the mail tomorrow along with some new goodies for her play with. I hope she likes it... I was happy with how it turned out. What do you think?

I will be back later to show the others.

Inkspirations Sketch # 31

This week Keesh gave us a sketch to work with...

On studing it for a few days not sure what to do... I decided it had a male look to it, and I needed to make a Birthday card for a friends son, so thought I'd kill two birds with the one stone (as the saying goes). So this is what I came up with...
I have used Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip and Sahara Sand which I seem to be using a lot more of these days.
Well I really should be doing end of year book work, but wanted to sneak that one in first, so now its off to hit the books.
Happy Stamping
