Hi Everyone,

Thanks for stopping by for another weekly S & B Challenge.  This time we are up to #50!  Wow were did all that time go.  This week I decided to try and make a card out of one of the Stampin Up kits.  I must say I have not used many of these but I was in a mad hurry tonight to get this posted and I didn’t have time for any fussing cutting or the like. There on the shelf was my unopened kit and this is what I came up with?   Might give these another go, they were so quick and easy and I think it turned out okay.  I might add that I have just realised that this retired with the Saleabration sale two days ago……so sorry, but if you don’t have the kit you wont be able to buy it anymore

Good as Gold Simply Sent wmkd

Here is my inspirational sketch

SB50

To make this card I took a piece of basic black cardstock, then I layered on a piece of the Good as Gold simply sent kit dsp.  After that I placed the four single strips of cardstock to make my 4 piece banner, mounted another piece of black cardstock on top and then cut out a piece of DSP with the 2 1/2 in scallop circle and then a piece of gold dsp with the 1 3/4 in circle punch, mounted them together and then cut the “thank you” words out of one of the other banners in the kit.  There you have it, simply sent!

Hi Everyone,

How has your week been?  Here in the Southern Highlands we have had nothing but rain for the last week or so and it doesn’t look like letting up anytime soon.  Mind you with it raining outside, and the weather starting to turn slightly cooler, its a great time to sit inside all “snug as a bug in a rug” and make some cards.  Today is our S & B Challenge no. #49.  When I first saw this stamp set I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.  Here is what I came up with for you today.

Big Wish wmkd

I got my inspiration from this sketch

SB49

 

To make this card I used the base of Bermuda Bay cardstock, then I took a piece of whisper white and using Basic Gray reinker mixed with alcohol I sprayed the cardstock and then left it to dry.  Following that I used the little cupcake stamp and I coloured in the top and the bottom using the Stampin Up markers.  I then pressed this onto whisper white cardstock and then cut them out.  I tried a lot of colour combinations until I selected these.  I then took some versamark ink and stamped the glass cake stand on whisper white and then I covered it with pewter embossing powder and heat set it.  I tried a few different colours of embossing powder too, but I think this looked the best.  I then cut out the cake stand and stuck the cupcakes in place using a glue dot so that the cakes weren’t adhere flat onto the cardstock.  I then cut out the shape of the cake stand using acetate…..to resemble glass.  I tried covering the cake stand with glossy accents but the colour in the cupcakes ran so that was a waste of time.  I can’t find my crystal effects anywhere and I have 3 bottles lol.  I decided I liked the shine on the acetate as it looked more natural similar to glass.

Here is my card recipe:

Cardstock:      Bermuda Bay, Raspberry Ripple, White White and Birthday Basics DSP

Stamps:   Big Wish

Ink:     Raspberry Ripple, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Elegant Eggplant and Basic Gray in a spritzer.

Punches:  1 3/4″ scallop circle and the Ticket Duo Punch.

Embellishments:  Pewter embossing powder, basic pearls.

Accessories:  Paper Trimmer, Spritzer, sponges, dimensionals, glue dots,  glossy accents or crystal effects.

Hi Everyone,

Welcome back to another week and another S & B Challenge.  This week we are up to #48.  I have had a lot of fun trying to get this photo from my new ipad air onto my laptop.  You see I had not set up the ipad to send emails and it has been a long night trying to get it work and also racing against the battery life on the ipad.  Well here is what I came up with this week!

Here is the image of the sketch where I got my inspiration.

Hello Everyone,

Welcome back to our Stamping and Blogging Challenge #47.  This week I have pulled out of the stash of stamps an oldie but a goodie….Apothecary Art.  I used this stamp so much when it first came out and then haven’t used it for such a long time I thought I would revive it for today’s challenge.

Apothecary Art wmkd
I took my inspiration from this sketch

 SB47

 When making this card I used the Labels Collection framelits which match the Apothecary Art stamps.  I cut out two sizes of the framelits with the big shot using contrasting colours.  I used the elegant eggplant as the border and used the  smaller framelit to stamp the flower on.   I then coloured that in with Stampin Up markers, and added some pearls.  To give the card a little bling I spritzed the card with elegant eggplant reinker mixed with alcohol and  lastly spritzed the card again with champagne shimmer mist (now retired) to give it a little sparkle.

Drop on over to the other members of the Design Team and see what they made this week.  Don’t forget to give Lee Conrey our newest Design Team member a big welcome.  Lee is a very accomplished cardmaker and has received many Stampin Up awards.  A Big welcome to you Lee, great to have you on the team!!

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick post today to show you a photo of my little grandson who loves sitting with me in the craft room in his little rocker.  I must say I don’t get much work done as its so hard to pull yourself away from those gorgeous smiles.

My Darling

He is smiling at me as he loves his “Grandie” so much…Love you to Archer!!xxx

Hope you have a great day xx

Hi Everyone,

As I was doing this card and typing the name of the stamp set I had a laugh as all we seem to say around our house when visitors come is “Baby you have grown!”.  You see I have a new grandson, he is the most gorgeous little boy (not just a biased Grandie talking lol) and people who haven’t seen him for awhile keep saying how much he has grown.  Because of that I chose to do this weeks S & B Challenge #45 using the owl family from that stamp set.

Baby We've Grown wmkd

This is the sketch I took my inspiration from

SB44

I had a lot of fun doing this card and being a bit of an owl lover it was nice to make.  While you are here make sure you have a look at what the other designers have come up with this week and see what card they made from the Sketch.

Welcome back to another S & B Sketch Challenge.  This week we are up to Sketch Challenge #44.  I chose this week to use the Zoo Babies stamp set.  I have wanted to use this stamp set for ages.  Being a new “Grandie” probably started it all off lol.

 

Zoo Babies wmkd

 

It did a lot of fussy cutting with this one and cut all the animals out individually.  I must tell you when you are trying to do this at night (you need a good light) lol.  The photo does not do it justice and I will take another photo tomorrow.  Just as I took this photo my camera battery died.  I go my inspiration from this weeks sketch below.

Hi Everyone,

Today I have a special “Thank You” card for you.   Of course having a back drop of a dozen red roses for Valentine’s Day does make it look that little more special.

It is super easy to make and looks really quite classy.  (Well, I think it does lol).  What do you think?

thank you card 007 wmkd

thank you card wmkd.002

 Love the effect of the gold embossing.

Would you like to know how I made this card?  First of all I used a stamp by Stampin Up called “Another Thank You.”  This was a present for my birthday, they are not available in Australia and I was a very lucky girl to get it.  I hope they come here as I think it is such a versatile stamp and I don’t think you can ever have enough sentiments lol.

First of all, I inked the stamp with versamark and then I covered it in gold embossing powder and heat set it.  Then I got the washi tape (Watercolour Wonder) from the Occasions Mini and I put a strip of each next to each other side.  This is one of the easiest cards to make, just have to make sure you line up the washi tape straight and you are done.

Here is the supply list:

Cardstock:    Whisper white

Accessories:  Gold embossing powder, washi tape, heat tool

Thanks for stopping by, catch you next time.

Hi Everyone,

I have been away this last week having some “down time” with my hubby away in the caravan.  I love going away and just sitting and relaxing colouring in with my Copics or just playing around with card “stuff” lol.  While I was away I had another birthday (this year I am starting to count backwards lol) and my darling husband bought me an Ipad Air…..oh golly I have had so much fun playing around with it.  It’s a whole new learning curve after my laptop….but I am loving it.

Now that I am back, its time for the next S & B Challenge #43.   I chose to do a little something different this week.  Instead of using a stamp set for the major part of the card I used the DSP High Tide (from the new Occasions Mini) and cut out the ship in the bottle from the paper and then layered it to give it some depth.  Lots of  “fussy” cutting, which I don’t mind (as long as the eyes can handle it lol).  Here is the inspiration sketch.

The other design team members have all created their own designs from the sketch for you to have a look at….here are their blogs so you can have a peak.
