                          Please provide an envelope with each card.
                          Please place all cards and envelopes in a clip lock plastic bag with the total number of cards written on the outside of the plastic bag with your name on them. This is important as it assists with counting and packaging of the cards when sorting specific numbers serving in specific regions. It is equally important to put your name on it, so that i can add your name to the many of you all to say thank you for your contribution on the blog roll of wonderful australian card makers who donated this year.

3D WINDOW AND FLOWER BOX HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARD - STAMPIN UP DESIGNER BUILDER BRADS AND ITTY BUTTERFLY PUNCH


FROM THE MINUTE I SAW THIS GRANDE WINDOW DIE FROM MEMORY BOX, I KNEW EXACTLY WHAT I WAS GOING TO DO WITH IT.
My friend markie is having a special birthday this week and i wanted to make her a special out of the ordinary card so i made her this one.

The memory box Grande window metal die i purchased from Crafts online along with the coordinating window flower box metal die.  I just love the way it goes together.  I love the way that it pops and the leaf vine comes from the Cherry Lyne metal die's.  The cute little butterflies were made using the new stampin up itty butterfly punch from the 2013 seasonal catalogue and the flowers were made from the new 1 1/4" scallop circle punch and hot glue gun with glitzn glamour crystal.  And WOW how nice are the new stampin up builder brads and print poetry designer series stack as well.  I hope she loves it it as much as i enjoyed making it.  The colours used are Night of Navy, Choc chip and Always Antichoke card stock from stampin up.

2013 DIARY'S AND HANDMADE GIFTS WITH STAMPIN UP DESIGNER SERIES PAPERS - BACK TO UNI



These cheap diaries were uninviting to be used, until i covered them with some discontinued stampin up designer series paper.  With two friends off to uni this year, it made a great idea to make them into study diaries.  They loved them i hope you do too.

Hand made thank you card with Stampin Up itty butterfly and 1 1/4" Scallop circle from the Seasonal Catalogue 2013, Cherry Lyne metal die words and flourish


This thank you card was made for a very special woman who is a total stranger to me who did a wonderful thing and i wanted to thank her the best way i know how and that is to make her a Thank You card.

Stampin up has a new name for its mini catalogue, they call it the seasonl catalogue 2013 and inside it are some nice items such as the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper stack.  Its awesome because its a mini pack and it is great for matting your cards or scrap pages and it has some fantastic patterns in it, like the one in this card.  My favourite colours in it.  Absolutely great pattern to use the new bitty butterfly punch and the new 1 1/4" scalloped circle punch.

I love my Cherry Lyne metal dies and the many words you can buy in them such as Thank you, so elegant on your cards and so much nicer than stamping.

I just got this gorgeous Stampin' Up Hearts a flutter stamp set and the matching hearts a flutter framelit dies,

Ciao Baby and you can get the matching punch from sale a bration for Free.  Just love it.

The best part about this card is the Cheery Lyne metal dies that cut out the words "Happy Valentines Day"
I just love my Cherry Lyne metal word dies,  much better than stamping them.

If you go to all the bother to make your own greeting card, then i highly recommend
taking an extra minute and thats all it takes, to emboss the envelope.

STAMPIN UP CHRISTMAS POSTCARD CANDLE - HANDMADE CHRISTMAS GIFTS


I LOVE THIS STAMPIN UP CHRISTMAS POSTCARD STAMP SET, i have had this stamp for a few years now and i just love using it.

I stamped the christmas postcard stamp using stazon onto tissue paper and then i used my copic ciao markers and coloured in so that i had a rich colour on the tissue paper.  Then i melted the coloured image into the candle and decorated it.  What a fantastic gift for a friend this christmas.  I absolutely love these and will probably make this gift a few more times this christmas.

STAMPIN UP CHRISTMAS LODGE CANDLE - CHRISTMAS HANDMADE GIFTS


STAMPIN' UP! CHRISTMAS LODGE STAMP SET is a great set for not only making your christmas cards but for making many hand made gifts, like candle stamping and decorating.

I used the stamp and inked it in early expresso and the holly in old olive.

I used Glitzn Glamour to give a snow effect on the roof.  Hope you like it come back soon and see my next candle.
