Stamped cards

I love playing with stamps when making my cards. 

The top two cards use stamps by Darkroom Door, an Australian company.  The detail in the dream catcher and motor bike are wonderful.
The bottom card was a trial using a tab cutout for the opening.  I should have taken a photo of the inside, however, I didn't :)
More to add to my card supply.  I will definitely be making more cards using these stamps

Lovely weekend

I had a lovely weekend away with my sisters.  Just a girls weekend, lots of love and laughter.
We stayed at a beautiful apartment on Lake Mulwala, this was the scene from our door.  Stunning

At dusk the lake was magical and this black swan made the perfect backdrop to the ripples in the water.

Alas, back to reality today, and back to work.  But great memories and fun times.

Birthday card

This birthday card was CAS from Pinterest.  It uses Couture Creations Sea Breeze collection lighthouse, Dress It Up Buttons (seagull & boat).  Great texture on this card.

I am having so much fun making cards - another three already in the planning stage.  I think I have forgotten how to use my sewing machine, ha ha

Masculine cards

I quite often hear and read about people having trouble making cards for males.  I do not have the same trouble as I have a lot of stamps that I can use.

The following two cards were created using Darkroom Door Classic Motorcycle stamp set and Kaisercraft Checker Plate embossing folder.

I love the way they turned out. What do you think|?

Another two Christmas cards

I have made another two Christmas cards using the Kaisercraft Christmas Jewels paper and collectibles.  I love this mauve colour.

Very simple cards, using a Memory Box Open Studio collage die for the accents.

Till next time.

No craft - but cute puppy

Unfortunately I have not been crafting the last couple of weeks.  Lots of new products needed to be added to the online store.  However a couple of photos to show off my pup, Cindy.  She is nearly 18 months old now and is growing quite big.

Gorgeous eyes

Can you see the little wound on her side?  She had a run in with the corner of the screen door, lucky it was only a surface wound and has since cleared up, but really showed up on her light coat

We are continuing to socialise with other dogs, and this next photo is on a walk with 3 other bigger dogs.  Two huskys and a boxer ... her little legs go twice as fast as the others, but she keeps up the pace really well.  

I hope to get a couple of more Christmas cards made this week.  With the days flying past so quickly, Christmas will be here before we know it.

Have a good week

Sympathy Cards

It is an unfortunate fact of life that we all require these cards at some time.
I bought a new embossing folder from Darice and wanted to try it out.  Very simple cards, but different results.

The final card uses a Quote stamp with a little ink shading.  I think it looks better in "real life", the photo does not depict the subtle shading 

Until next time
