TEAM CHRISTMAS SWAPS!

I thought I would show you the swaps I received from last week’s team meeting.  There are some really cute ones here.  I think Tags were very common 🙂  They are great to use as tags or add them to cards.

Sorry for the lighting.  Sigh! Must do something about this BUT you can get the idea anyway.

Now the cute little penguin card in the back does have a head.  Sorry about the photo.  The penguin is stamped on the inside of the card and a circle window is punched on the front with the hat on the front.  It is so cute.  I love all these ideas. Thank you to all the clever demonstrators in the Inky Fingers Team.  Nice to share ideas.

I will show you my swaps.  Once again – tags! Now that wasn’t the theme but funny how it works out.

I CASED the red one from Pinterest and made up the other in Smoky Slate, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay.  These use the ‘Sleigh Ride’ Edgelits.  For the red one I punched out stars from Gold Foil using the Star Border punch.  The Smoky Slate one I have punched out one star in Silver Foil. Then I added some Dazzling Details for a sparkle but you really can’t see that well sorry.

I better get going. Our internet is being switched off soon to transfer it over to the new NBN network.  Hopefully it is not too long offline.  I think my kids are going to die!!!!! 😉

Thanks for visiting.

PUNCH KOALA CHRISTMAS!

I made this special Christmas card for my blog pal Patti in the US.  I thought she might like a little Australian Christmas.  I know I can share it now because she has received it. The idea was CASED from a sample on a Convention board a couple of years ago so sorry I don’t know who to give credit too.  If you know then let me know.

A number of punches were used to create my little Koala.  I had fun playing around getting his shape right.

1 3/4″ circle, 1 3/8″ circle, 1 1/4″ circle, 1″ circle, Extra-Large Oval, Large Oval, 2 step Bird Punch, 2 step Owl Punch, Boho Blossoms, Itty Bitty Shapes pack, Word Window Punch. His kerchief was made with a 2cmx2cm square of red card.  I also added some sponging and a little Dazzling Diamonds with 2 way glue pen and used white gel pen for his eyes and black marker for his mouth.  I think that about covers it.  He is very cute.

For the rest of the card, the greeting is from ‘Wishing You’ and I cut the edge of the Gumball Green card with the zig-zag edge from the Finishing Touches Edgelits.  Just a little strip of Gumball Green Satin Stitched Ribbon finishes it off.

Happy Christmas Patti.  Happy Christmas to all my blog readers.  I appreciate all of you who stop by and visit me.  I hope to share lots more in 2014 so keep visiting. 🙂

HOME AGAIN!!!

I am back home again after a fantastic holiday.  We had a great time away but it is so nice to be home again. I will share photos once I get myself sorted.  It’s back in to our school term now and I have lots of classes and workshops coming up.  But it’s all good!  When I was thinking of how good home is it made me think of a card I made quite some time ago.  (Ok, nearly a year ago but Ssh!!).  I made this card for a special friend who was moving house and wanted to make something special for her.  This took me a while but I loved the end result.  This card was inspired by a card I saw by Jackie Topa but I can’t find the actual one now.  I have just added some little “extra’s” to it.

Here is my card.

I have sponged clouds in the background.  I made a mask using 2 scallop ovals punched out with scrap paper and adhering them to the card with Dotto.  I sponged with Baja Breeze and moved the oval masks in places.  The little scallop edge under the triangle roof was made using the Scallop Dotted Ribbon punnch. I sponged each piece that I punched out: the flowers, roof, leafs, grass.  For the grass, I punched out a strip of Old Olive with the Scallop Edge punch and then moved it along slightly in the punch and punched out again to create a jagged edge.  Other punches used: Boho Blossoms Punch, 2 step Bird Punch, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Owl Punch (circle for the “hole”).  I also used Old Olive Taffeta ribbon, and some Dazzling Diamonds for the flower centres.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I love to have you visit me.

See you again soon,

“CREATING UP A STORM”

I am just managing to get back here now.  I can’t believe where this past week has gone.  There has been so many ups and downs along the way. This weekend has been extremely busy too.  But, I am here now and can show you some of the creations from our stamping weekend last weekend.   It was amazing how much we created in 2 days.  (It does help when you stay up to the wee hours of the morning!!).

Since there were so many projects I am going to show you them in two posts.  I will put them in a slideshow for you.  (For those who subscribe to my blog, I don’t think it will come through as a slide show.  It will show the individual photos.  If you want to see the slide show just head over to my blog).  Today I will show you all the Make and Take projects we did that was shared by everyone there.  Next time I will show you all the challenge and CASE cards we did.

You can see my ‘Treat Box’ Make and Take in the previous post.
