Bodacious Weekend Part 2

Here is Part 2 of my Bodacious Weekend.

Again, this card is cased straight from Splitcoast Stampers. The only thing I changed was the colour. I will edit this post, when I find out who I cased this from. Wow, I found this one too. The lady who I cased this card from is, Glittergal. Check out her galley on Splitcoast Stampers

The inks I used are:
Old Olive
Rose Red
Regal Rose

The cardstock was matched to the same colour ink and the greeting is from the SAB catalogue.

Bodacious Weekend

Don't you just hate it when you have too many stamps. I found this set in my stash, and if you can believe this, it was UNOPENED.

So my first step, naturally, was to open the set.

I searched through Splitcoast Stampers and found these amazing cards, so I thought I would case them. When I find out who the original lady was that created these cards, I will edit this post. Okay, I found it. Kirstysb is the talented lady, check out her gallery.

What a totally awesome use of the stamps in the Bodacious Bouquet set.

February Classes

Well class began in full swing this month. These are the little gift cards that we are making for our first class. There is also a box that we are making to hold the cards. The stamps that we used are, of course, Pun Fun. As I have mentioned before, I love this stamp set.

The papers are from the Jersey Shore Designer Paper range. inks that I used to water colour the images are:
Pumpkin Pie
Wild Wassabi
Bashful Blue
Going Grey
Brilliant Blue

And finally, here is the finished project.

Hope you like it.

Wednesday's Tutorial - Splitcoast stampers

Here is my attempt at the Splitcoaststampers Wednesday Tutorial by Beate. It is called a folded paper frame.

I used the Candy Lane designer paper.
Matching SU Cardstock
Blender pen
In colour stamp pads (for flower)
Stamp a ma jig (cannot live without)
Wagon full of Fun stamp set

If you go to the home page on the Splitcoast site, scroll half way down the page, you will see the tutorial.

Give it a go, it was really fun and really easy.

re designing my stampin room

After posting the pictures of my stampin room, I received a comment from kiwi jules regarding the fading of my cardstock. When I looked closely at my card, I discovered that it had indeed started to fade a little. So I was in for another shift. This is what I came up with. Hope you like it.

This picture is where I have now housed my cardstock. I can shut the door and keep it in the dark. No more fading cardstock I hope. I can't imagine how much it would cost to replace all of my cardstock, so once again, thanks kiwi jules for your information. I will post some more photos at a later date, when I finish everything.
The picture to the left is of the items that I use for workshops and my craft mornings only. I have other items that I use for personal. I find that my items last longer If I have seperate ones. everything is pretty accessible and I can see at a glance what I have to re stock. It's a very easy organising system, that at the moment is working well.

Crazy for Cupcakes

I made this card for my grandmothers 89th birthday. I really like this stamp set as well. Okay, I will confess. I love them all :) I used the wide Chocolate Chip Ribbon on this card because I like laying the ribbon flat across the card, I find this size ribbon is difficult to tie into bows or knots. The Designer Paper is called Candy Lane, by Stampin Up. I also used the co-ordinating cardstock to match the designer paper. I also have another confession. I am addicted to blogging. Take care. Have a great night.

Here is another birthday card I have made using the Crazy for cupcakes stamp set. Again, I love this set and I adore the designer paper. Sorry that the photography is not that great.

Stipple Rose

I made these cards a while ago now, using the Stipple Rose stamp set and en francis background stamp. The card stock I used was mellow moss, pale plum and perfect plum. Not to mention or course, whisper white.

I used the spellbinders dies to create the oval scallop, I also used the SU scallop edge punch. I used the co-ordinating marker pens to colour the image.

More pun fun

I thought I would share my weekend project with you. It's a little book where I can keep track of all those birthdays' that I must remember. I downloaded the free template from and with a few minor adjustment, hey presto. Hope you like it :)

Once again I have used the Pun Fun stamp set. This time I stamped the images onto watercolour paper and cut them all out individually, carefully placing them on top of each other. The paper I used for the book was left overs (scraps) that I had. I knew I would use them somewhere.

My Space

I thought I would place some picture of the most used room in my house. Of course, that does not include the kitchen. :)

My little stampin space has everything I need to create. My roller trolley on the far left hold all of the current Stampin' Up! stamps and the one on the right holds everything from chipboard to rubons and anything else I need to work. Ha, I said work. I should have said play.

I will upload some more photos when I clean the area. Toooooo messy at the moment.

Step Stair Cards

This would have to be my favorite stamp set from Stampin Up. It is the Wild about You set which contains a total of 8 stamps. I have used this stampset on a number of cards, but this card is also my favorite.

Kaiser Train Tidy

I saw this kit in one of the few remaining scrapbooking shops we have that are local, and just had to have it. It is the cutest little ptoject I have completed thus far. Like many other crafting people, I have a lot of unfinished projects. One day. I haven't actually made this for anyone in particular, but it rests on top of my craft desk, and basically just looks good.

Wow, I can't believe that the children are back at school already. Where have the Summer holidays' gone. I created these three cards on the weekend and thought I would add these to my blog. I really love the versatility of these images, there is a stamp for every occassion.
