Guest Gifts

Thank you to 'Pootles' for the tutorial on how to make these SUPER cute little milk cartons that my Extravaganza guests received as a thank you treat.

I have used:
  • Sending Love DSP (page 15 OCC: 6"x6" paper stack)
  • Mini Paper Clips (36 clips in gold, silver and white)
  • Circle Punch (3/4"- a really handy size)
  • Endless Thanks stamp set (sentiment)

These would also be awesome filled with tiny easter eggs, as Pootles shows in her video. 

Have a great weekend all!

'Beautiful You' and Coffee and Cards

 Last weekend was the Nelson Extravaganza.  At these events participants make five projects throughout the course of the day, each taught by a different demonstrator(s). 
My project was a set of three notecards using the 'Beautiful You' stamp set.
It's easy to create beautiful backgrounds with Stampin' Up's Watercolour Pencils and an aquabrush!   

The elegant lady was coloured with a watercolour pencil and overstamped in ink (both using the colour 'Pacific Point').

Lastly my fave of the three women...  Here we masked her, sponged around, created the splatters with the Gold 'Wink of Stella' and paper pieced used the lovely 'Falling in Love' DSP.

The set is bundled together with a Soft Sky belly band that has been embossed through the Big Shot using the 'Falling Petals' embossing folder.  

Lastly I have a new event happening over the next three Wednesdays.....

Two Cheeky Pukekos

Recently hubby and I attended a wedding in Castle Hill, Caterbury.  The invitation had 'two cheeky pukekos' on the front.  I wanted to continue this theme for the wedding card...not your typical wedding card!

So I started with a leftover kit from the project I taught at November's extravganza.  You can see this project here

With the exception of the 'pukekos' all of the products used are from Stampin' Up!  

I thought that the Falling Petals Embossing Folder and the wood heart (Sending Love Embellishment) made it a little more 'wedding-y'.  The sweet sentiment inside the card comes from 'Floral Phrases'.

The 'Wetlands' set is a new one for me and I adore it already.  I used 'Garden Green' and 'Crumb Cake' ink and an aquapainter and sponge to create the swampy scene.  I used copper thread on the front and copper foil as a mat inside, which enhanced the card in my opionion.
Three sleeps till the Nelson Extravaganza.  It's not too late to book!
