November 22nd 2014
A couple of ATC's made with new November products at Gecko Galz - images from the new "Christmas Cuties" collage Sheet Set and background papers from the "Botanical Christmas" Paper Pack. I added some muslin (of course LOL) and a couple of xmas charms. Imay even make them into actual xmas cards!

Cardz 4 Guyz Xmas Stocking Nov 20th

November 21st 2014


Here is my creation as Guest Designer for this week at the Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge Blog and what a perfect theme for the upcoming season - "Christmas Stocking"

 
I've used my Cameo Silhouette to make this gift card box - when you open the lid the gift card pops up! Stocking die cut is also a Silhouette cut out. Gorgeous pug image is from JessicaLynnOriginal - check out the great "Pug" Stamp set in the store!

 
Let's see your "male" themed creation for the Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge this week!

Falling for Fall...

November 20th 2014


The theme for our new challenge at the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog is "Falling for Fall" - of course it's not fall here in Australia it's Spring but I've still created a fall themed and coloured ATC for this week's challenge! Our sponsor this week is Sami Stamps and as they have an Anything Goes Challenge this week I am also entering my ATC there!

Have a Cookie Sweet Xmas......

November 16th 2014

 
I just love to make non traditional style xmas cards - really I like anything non traditional LOL!

 
My xmas card uses a great stamp from the JessicaLynnOriginal Store - I love these Jasmine Becket-Griffith images - make sure you check this one out and the others in the range at the store - this one is all ready to be purchased for xmas!
 
Papers are digi from SheryK Designs Etsy Store - I love them beacuse they have lots of pinks and other soft colour tones - perfect for the more non traditional look!
 
I distressed the edges of all the patterned papers, added some pink mesh behind the image along with a flower embellishment and candy cane charm - so cute!
 
I'm going to have some fun and enter this card in a few challenges!
 
The Coffee, Chocolate & Cards Challenge Blog have a "Your Favourite Holiday" themed challenge this week so I'm entering there along with Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge Blog with their Anything goes challenge. The Crafty Catz Blog's theme is "Christmas is Coming" and the Ruby's Rainbow Challenge is "Non Traditional Christmas" - just perfect!

Spring is Sprung...

November 14th 2014


Had some fun making this double journal page for November! I used a great stamp set from JessicaLynnOriginal "Enjoying the Sounds of Spring" - I think I used nearly every stamp in the set - there are some great tiny stamps like the butterfly & ladybird that were just perfect for "dotting" around the pages!


I stamped Brentwood on card and coloured him and then fussy cut and added to the page. All the other stamping was direct to my Dylusions Sprays background. I made a flower stencil myself with a Silhouette design - I cut it from transparency and sponged ink over it.


 
 
If you haven't visited the JessicaLynnOriginal Store recently you really should check it out - a new look and lots of great stamps as well as a few cute digis!! And remember the JLO Store exclusively sells Jasmine Becket-Griffith Stamps - I have a great "non traditional" xmas card to share soon with a Jasmine Becket-Grifith stamp!

Thanksgiving/Thankful Challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz...

November 13th 2014


My second weeks card as a Guest Designer at the Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge Blog! Theme of Thanksgiving or Thankful and as we don't celebrate thanksgiving here in Australia I've gone with a theme of "Thank You" for my card using a great Brentwood Owl Stamps from JessicaLynnOriginal! Card base is a Silhouette design. I'm loving having to think of "masculine" cards - good to have up your sleeve!

Sharing a couple of simple CAS style Xmas cards - a great way to make lots of cards in one sitting - perfect if you are running behind with creating your handmade cards this year!!

 
 
I always love the effect when I do cards this way and I do like to have a quick technique for creating cards at short notice!
 
These gorgeous images are from the November New Release digi images from Gecko Galz "Christmas Time Stamps" - they are very classy images to use.
