Joyful in Soft Sky

'Joyful Season' is a lovely set and it doesn't have to be all about Christmas.  Here I have used the bird images to make a delightful yet simple birthday card.  Come and see...

Mr bird has had a 'make-over' in soft sky and island indigo.  Maybe a little more like a Blue Jay than a Red Cardinal?  I reach for the 'notecards' a lot.  Love working in that size.  I have stamped the berries on the envelope front. 

The sentiment is from Butterfly Basics.  Love the sparkly Glitter Ribbon from the holiday catalogue.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.  Thanks for looking.  Blessings.  Sal :)

Sleigh Ride Edgelits in a Mini Matchbox

 Welcome to my little blog.  Come and see what I crafted for a special friend......

I embellished the inside of this mini matchbox using the 'Sleigh Ride Edgelit Dies' which feature in the new holiday catalogue. They are just gorgeous! 

You can really see the sparkle in the 'Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper' below.

I just love working in 'micro'- despite the fiddly bits.

I've used gold metallic thread again.  It really is my 'go to' at present!!

For the SU products I have used, please see the following supply list.  Thanks for looking.

Love to Scrap

Here's a LO that I did at Jacque Williams' class a wee while back.  For this page I used her design, just changed up the colours and embellies a bit.  

I created another page in my own time.  I like the design and the fact that you can use up scraps, emboss and have fun playing- within a colour scheme if desired.

Most of the product in the above LOs are current.  The 'love' die cut is non SU.  Photos are taken by Steve Hussey.

Merry and Bright

Adriana Koch and I ran an event 'Merry and Bright' in Nelson yesterday afternoon.  Thanks to all the lovely ladies who came, to Bev who 'supplied' the room and to Adriana for all her hard work and support. 
I am still pretty pumped.  Events are interesting things.  Pre 'Stampin' Up' I really hadn't been involved in event planning.  There's a lot that goes into them but there's nothing like the feeling at the end when you've pulled it off.  That people have had a great time creating and have been inspired in one way or another.  So cool.
Here's the card I taught....

Secondly, a set of three vintage inspired tags using the stamp sets 'Cozy Christmas' and 'Joyful Season'.

I was greatly inspired by a card made by Wendy Weixler here.
To make my version I used the 'Woodland' Embossing folder.  I was thrilled with the detail it has.  I have used neutral tones and 'Mossy Meadow' for my colour palate. 

I'm using that 'Gold Metallic Thread' on just about every project right now.  I love the effect it gives.

'Awesomely Artistic' splatters again.

I am grateful for you for looking at my blog today :)  {giggle}

Go well!
