June SAS {Stamp-A-Stack}

Hello! I'm sharing the projects made at my SAS yesterday, the theme this month was 'Convention Inspiration'. This first one was inspired by a gorgeous emboss resist card on the demonstrator pin-up board in Melbourne. If anyone recognises it, feel free to let me know who the artist was. Edited to add, this is my inspration card, by the fabulous Sharlene Meyer. I loved the elegant french script background, and the damask stamp from 'Friends 24/7' embossed in clear powder, and brayered over in pear pizazz ink. I have added an eyelet border in black and a finger-bow-a-la-Teneale Williams in Mistletoe taffeta.

This little love note is a case from the last page of the mini catalogue, using the gorgeous 'Strength and Hope' stamps in support of breast cancer research. The original card was in Crumb Cake, but I have chosen Blushing Bride to represent the NBCF ribbon colour. I also added some lace instead of ribbon.

A card similar to this one also featured on the pin-up boards at Convention, well the idea of the tool belt anyway. I have added my own spin on it by sueding the pouch, and the use of silver brads and tearing. I really like this masculine card.

Now, can you tell what these two characters are? Did you guess a butterfly & a peacock? YAY! I know it's a little obscure at first, but I just love how simple they are with a bit of DSP, ribbon and a button! Both made using the large scallop circle die.

Now, the colours on this one are a bit off, the main panel is Crumb Cake although it looks more like Mellow Moss here. This was the fave of the day, and this pleased me as it wasn't a CASE :) I love the bold ribbon ruffles!

Here is me in my new Stampin' Up! tee and scarf! We had a fabulous day of stamp 'n' chatter, thank you ladies for coming along.

June SAS {sneak peek}

Hola! I'm having fun prepping for my June Stamp-A-Stack, and thought I'd share a little sneaky peeky of one of the cards we'll be making.

There are still a couple of empty seats, so if you'd like to come along on Sunday (Perth area), please contact me & I'll send you the deets.

Now I've just realised I've completely forgotten to draw a winner for the card in the previous post! I'm off to consult with to pick the lucky winner!

Sweet Sunday Sketch 119 {Happy BIRTHday Josiah}

Happy first of Winter! Seriously, after the Summer we've just had in Perth, this lovely cool weather and RAIN is so glorious! And I'm a Summer girl..

Anyhoo, onto MUCH more exciting matters, and the arrival of my nephew {by my sister of the heart, Makeesha}. He arrived late last night, and as my friend laboured on the other side of the country, I made him a welcome card. I admit to feeling very guilty that I was having so much fun at my craft table while his mummy was hard at work *wink*.

And this weeks great sketch..

I've started on a base on Crumb Cake, and layered it with some CC DSP. I then riffled through my stash and found some Wild Asparagus DP from my scrapbooking days that went perfectly with the colours I had in mind. The reverse side of the DP was this gorgeous blue, very similar to, but darker than SU's Baja Breeze. I have mounted my main panel on this. On VV I stamped one of the greetings from PTI's Baby Button Bits set in Baja Breeze. The teddy bear is from the same set, and his button-belly is from PTI also. The ribbon is from a retired SU Ribbon Originals pack called 'Valet'. I've used my Nestabilities & BIG SHOT to create the circle & scallop. Oh. And a WHOLE LOTTA LOVE!!!

Thanks for looking,
