ESAD Wk 10 Challenge and more

This is my first card for an ESAD challenge.  ESAD is a wonderful place for all NZ & Aussie Stampin Up Demo's to chat and share.   This was a sketch challenge and also a colour challenge. (Kraft, white and Pink Pirouette).  The base is Kraft with the Very Vintage Wheel from the new Mini Catalogue in White Craft ink.  I have also used Vintage Vogue Stamp set, white and Pink Pirouette Cardstock, PP Ribbon, PP Felt Flowers, a Kraft Flower cut out with the Boho Blossoms punch and a half white pearl from the Pretties Kit.

I made this card to showcase some of the awesome new colours in the Autumn/Winter Mini.  Rich Razzleberry is definitely going to be a favourite of mine.  I have also used the Cottage Garden Stamp Set and Cottage Wall DSP from the same mini.

I saw the Stars card when I was blog hopping a few weeks back, but sorry I don't remember where.  This is a great basic but very effective card that can be given to anyone by just changing the colours. 

Hope everyone has a great week.  I will have some more projects up in a couple of days. (Hopefully)

Back to Blogging

Hi everyone, I have finally had time to get my blog updated.  It has been a very busy few months in the Motor Camp business, but the peace and serenity that go with the cold weather has arrived.
I have been creating recently, but haven't had a chance to blog any of it.  Here is my first lot, there will be more to follow over the next few days.

My class on Wednesday requested sympathy cards.  I always find these hard, as you want something nice but not to over the top.  I am absolutely loving the products in the new mini catalogue as you will notice.

I have used the "Thoughts and Prayers" stamp set for both of these cards.  The first card uses really rust, close to cocoa and whisper white card stock.  The lovely curvy shape is using the wonderful "Top Note" big shot die, you will see this a lot in my next few blog posts.  It has to be my favourite ever.  Nice and simple and easy.

The second card uses Not quite Navy, Kraft and Very Vanilla cardstock and Bella Blue DSP.  The ovals are using the Oval Die with the Bigshot.  The Lovely Birdy is actually made from the new two step punch from Stampin Up. Oh another wonderful new product.
Keep an eye out for some more creations.  I will be back.
