2 Special People

Recently 2 very special people we know formerly dedicated themselves to each other after 27 years together. It was a very special occasion for them and their whanau and I was honoured to be a part of it. So obviously it had to be a very special card as well.


I used a Screen card design using the Bloom with Hope Hostess Set stamped on a newsprint paper and carefully coloured with my trusty Stampin’ Write markers. The Something to Say Stamp set had the perfect sentiments – 2 Great People – 1 Great Life which is exactly what I wanted to say! The base card has been stamped tone on tone using the Hardwood Background Stamp

I will leave you with one of the beautiful table settings and say Thank you Sonny and Tina for sharing this very special day with us.

I have now added a link (other on the right hand side) to the not so new Holiday Catalogue. I was very happy with the offering this year and I’ve enjoyed having a play with my Holiday Homes Set and Get Your Santa on. The camera battery is flat but I will try to take some photos tomorrow but in the meantime take a look at this quick and easy note cards I made.

Same card different colours

Catchy title huh! I’m Brain dumb as I now have a cold but I am making the supreme effort to post something for you lovely people!


Can you spot the two new in colours Lost Lagoon and Blackberry Bliss teamed up with Blushing Bride. Hasnt photographed as well as it looks in real life but you get the idea. You can also see how easy it is to make your own background papers using stamps, this time it was various images from Gorgeous Grunge.

Dont fall off your seats

Yes I have managed to write a post for you today! Life has been very busy with a new schedule  for work and I have been singularly unable to motivate myself to create. I have made a few cards in the last couple of days and all but one have been a struggle to make even with some new product from the catalogue that is about to be released Jul 2.

I grabbed two challenges to help me along. Try Stamping on Tuesday for a sketch and Colour Throwdown for colours obviously. And trying a new cards style always helps. I quite like this one its called a block card I think but there are a few different versions of it.

I used a new stamp set called Something to Say and a matching punch for the sentiments and flowers. Other Stamp sets used were Everything Eleanor and Gorgeous Grunge. Here are some more photos to see the fancy fold.
