Peaceful Petals

Thank you to the ladies who came to the Open house yesterday. We all had a lovely time chatting and catching up. We also took a look at the new catalogues as well as looking on line for a bit of inspiration, something I have been lacking lately. I spent all Monday sitting at my craft desk and created nothing, so a bit of encouragement from the ladies yesterday got me back at my desk this morning and I managed one card. It's a start, lol!!

Project Recipe
Stamps: Peaceful petals and Creative elements
Card: Smoky slate, island indigo and whisper white
Ink: Black stazon, island indigo and pistachio pudding
Accessories: Modern label punch, watercolor wonder dsp and pistachio pudding ruffled ribbon

Peaceful Petals sneak Peek

Two posts in one day! I was half way through writing the last post when James came to tell me there was a parcel for me. I knew instantly it was the preorder parcel I had been waiting for and just in time too! We are heading off to Esperance on Saturday for a week's holiday so today is my last chance to play as tomorrow is packing day. I have three cards to show, all using new products from the new Occassion's catalogue which starts on the 28th January.
Along with the preorder came a bunch of copies of the Occassion's catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration catalogue which starts the same day. As I said before I am away from Saturday, so I thought I would have a coffee and cake afternoon on Tuesday 28th January (2pm onwards). If you would like a copy of the catalogues and a chance for a chat, cake and coffee (or tea), send me an email.

Starburst Thank you Card

I have been seeing these starburst cards all over the internet lately, so I figured it was time I had a go myself. I got the instructions from Dawn Olchefske which were real easy to follow. I needed a couple of thank you cards so ended up making three of these all a little different.

Stamps: Gorgeous grunge, flower shop, creative elements and lacy & lovely
Card: Basic black and very vanilla
Ink: Basic black, gold encore and versamark
Accessories: Gold embossing powder, summer starfruit ribbon (the closest I had to gold), modern medley dsp, gold glimmer brad and scallop oval and large oval punches, pansy punch (co-ords with flower shop stamps).
