Time for a Cuppa?

This is such a cute image - perfect for a "just because" card.  I keep promising myself I'm going to send more of these types of cards out, but to date that hasn't happened.  I've also been known to forget birthdays!

The colour is off in this one because it was taken late at night.  It is a CASe of the Mini Catalogue and it uses Soft Suede, very vanilla and the soft suede ribbon.

These two cute gift cards are simple but bright and happy.  Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.  I think I CASEd the catalogue here too!

Finally, another CASe of the Catalogue, with some changes.  Love the texture the punched flowers add to the background!

Medallion Background

I just love this beautiful background image,  it lends an easy elegance to cards for weddings, birthdays, etc.

Very easy to make a lovely card with a touch of ribbon, a label and a sentiment.

Cute Bots

How cute are these little guys?  They are from a set called "Lots of Bots."  Adorable!  Perfect for boy and male cards.  Not babyish and fun to colour.
Edited post to add that I CASED (Copy And Share Everything) these cards from Splitcoast Stampers, but I forgot to note who the artists were.  

Finally......some cards!

Let me apologise, first of all, for the poor quality of my photos in the next few posts.  You see, my sisters-in-crime and I were putting together sample boards and packing boxes for the Big Launch on Sunday until midnight last night, when it occurred to me to photograph a dozen or so cards I haven't put on my blog yet.  The lighting was horrible, and even after Photoshopping the heck out of them, the photos are still bad.  I would like to take better photos in natural sunlight when I get the cards back, but I can't guarantee I will get around to it.    So for the next couple of posts (I'm preparing a few posts to appear in the following few days) you will have to suffer the Terrible Photos Taken at Night.

After that long disclaimer, here we go!  I must say, this gorgeous 2-step bird punch was the first thing that grabbed my eye when I saw the new Mini.  I had to have it!  I just see so many uses for it in cardmaking, scrapbooking, etc.

This would make a sweet and simple w…

Quick Reminder - Autumn Mini Launch Day on Sunday 18th April

Just letting any blog readers in Brisbane know that there are still a few places left at our Big Cardmaking Day at the Virginia Golf Club on Sunday.  We are finalising numbers for catering, so if you wish to come, you need to contact me by tomorrow so I can include you!
Here is the flyer with the details:

Although there is an amendment - we ditched the notecards!
Also, I'm not sure if I remembered to post this but there are some products from the now retired Summer Mini which have carried over, and you can still order them.  Here is the flyer with those details:

Gotta run!  Hope to hear from you if you are coming to the Launch!

A Colour Renovation!

Change.  Some people hate it.  Loathe it, despise it.  Can't cope with it at all.   If you are one of these people, I have some challenging news for you.  Sit down somewhere comfortable, make a cup of tea.  Ready?  Here it is.

Stampin' Up! has just revealed some exciting changes to demonstrators.  I wanted to share the news with you  right away. 

At Stampin’ Up!®, coloor is part of our identity. It’s fundamental to our ability to create and be creative. That also means that it’s important for us to be able to stay up-to-date with the trends in colour to keep your artwork fresh and exciting.

That’s why we’ve worked to present you with the Colour Renovation—a refreshing, updated color palette!

3rd new product.....

Are the new punches!  Aren't they gorgeous?  I only have the bird one so far, but it is only a matter of time before I get the others too - I'm a sucker for punches.
