Trendy Triangles!

A quick post sharing with you a card I made for  Moxie Fab World’s Trendy Triangles Challenge.
I wanted to do something totally different. I went a bit tribal! I love white on Kraft. I then saw the cork paper from the past Studio Calico Card kit that I decided to use it instead of kraft cardstock Love the texture the cork gives. I have used stamp sets from Paper Smooches and The Craft’s Meow Geometric Stamp set to stamp and heat emboss my triangles. I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock strip using brown ink and adhere to the center. Here is a closeup!

A set of watercoloured tags

Hey everybody,

Beautiful Sunday morning! Cool with warm sun rays heating up the dining room:) Enjoying this weather because it is going to rain with a chance of thunderstorm late during the day. Cannot crib about it because after a long dry summer, any bit of rain is welcome.

I had some time on Friday and made a set of three gift  tags for  The Gift Tag Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. 

Here are the gift tags for you. 

I have used Jane Doodles’s Doodle Flowers stamp set for making my tags. I have water coloured them using Studio Calico’s Neon Mr. Hueys. Then cut out the flowers alone and layered them. The tags were diecut using tag die from Papertrey Ink and Studio Calico’s Grid PL cards. The sentiment is stamped on the grid card as well, trimmed and layered on the tag using foam adhesives. The ribbon is from Papertrey Ink and the twine is from the Twinery.

I am in love with the water colour technique blending all the colours and learning some watercolour techniques along the way. So you will see more of this technique using on my projects.

Happy weekend! Will see you soon with The Craft’s Meow Day #3 preview of the May New Release:)

Cool Dude!

Happy Friday Everybody,

I totally missed all the challenges at Moxie Fab! How could that happen? Thank God I saw them this morning! So quickly sent children and hubby to school and work and playing along the Card Creations Week- Speech Bubble Challenge:)

Here is my card.

I have used masking technique with Grunge Me stamp set from Papertrey Ink with speech bubble from He Said She Said from Paper Smooches and sentiment from RAD stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps on my card. I masked and stamped the grunge images first. Then removed the mask and stamped the speech bubble outline. Finally the sentiment. It is a only layer card with a lot of negative space. I love how my card turned out although I had something totally different in my mind when I started out to make this card. Lol!

Thanks for stopping by! I need to do some research about my area politicians because I have to vote tomorrow for our state election. As much I dislike politics, voting is compulsory. So I better know what I am doing at least:)

Happy Birthday to You!

Happy Sunday everybody!

 It is a gorgeous Sunday morning for me in Australia.
I am hoping to get out and enjoy the sushine today. But before that I have card to share.

I was experimenting with the new Designer Flowers stamp set from AnnaBelle Stamps to create a background paper. It turned out well that I made a card. Here it is for you.

What I have done is I went through Nichole Heady’s Tie’n Dye video. Wanted to do that technique for a long time. So I went ahead and created the background with orange and pink inks. Then I stamped the flower outline images in pink ink with the flower center using black ink. I really love how the tie-dye technique on the background highlights the flowers. A big bold senitment embossed using pink embossing powder on a banner, finishes the card. I let the background take the spotlight:)

Hope you like it. I am entering this card for Moxie Fab World’s 75 Creative Card Challenge- Make your own background paper.

Thanks for visiting me today. 

See you soon!

Keep Calm and…..

 Monday today. What should I say? Not a great start to the week for me. Woke up this morning to find Charlie, my dog had chewed up his bed to bits:(  This is this third bed in 6 months and I am very frustrated. He has plently of toys, bones around the house and he chooses to chew his bed!!!  I have to get to this habit of his and sort it out, very soon.
Anyway,  sharing a card I made for Moxie Fab World’s Minty Fresh Challenge.
I have used  Vintage Rides Stamp Set from The Craft’s Meow on my card. I love minty green scooters. I remember my dad had one of them. A Vespa Green scooter. Very beautiful and retro with shiny chrome rim. We were sad to let it go for a car when my brother came along. Mmm!
So, I stamped the scooter on a Aqua Mist cardstock and cut it out. I paired the green scooter with a retro pink colour background to highlight it. I kept the card simple and colour blocking works with retro. The sentiment suits my current situation lol!  I love it. Hope you do too.
 Thanks for stopping by! 
I will plan to sort out Charlie’s chewing habit.
Oh! I have a great news to share soon:)

Red and Rustic…

This is this Christmas card I made using Tuesday Trigger challenge called Red and Rustic.
 I bought this black sparkly flourish from Kmart. I love it and there was only one left. I would not have bought it if there were many on the shelf. But when there is just one left I tend to buy it because I am unsure… What if I want it and it is all gone???????? lol! I buy lots of things like that Hehe!
Anyway, if you like to play the challenge, then click on the picture below.

Beautiful Borders!

Afternoon! Its a beautiful sunny Sunday for me. Very cold start but at the moment looks just beautiful. I love winter sun. Brightens up the day but not hot. I got all my washings done and clothes are on the clothes line drying. House is all dusted, cleaned and vacuumed. Lunch is cooking. So I am all happy. You know what that means….. lol! Yes, I did craft 🙂
These are  two baby onesie tags.
These are made using Papertrey Ink’s baby onesie die and banner dies. I recently saw a baby wearing an onesie on Pinterst which inspired me to make these tags. Here is the image of the baby from Pinterest.
I love the grey scalloped neck design and so wanted to try it on paper.

I am so in love with the Baby Onesie die. Idea bulbs light up in my head everytime I see the die lol!  You may see more onesie projects on my blog this week. Just a warning for you 🙂
 I am entering these for Moxie Fab World Challenge- Beautiful Borders. If you like to play along the challenge, here is the link to the challenge.
Thanks for stopping by! See ya soon!
Have a wonderful weekend!
P.S. I have another post today, click here to see my second post.

Tuesday Trigger Rainbow Bright

Morning everybody 🙂

I have tags today to share made using this week’s Tuesday Trigger Rainbow Bright challenge.

 I love the rainbow colors and the shine on them. Looks yum! So here is a tag set I made using the yummy colors and the shine on the picture as inspiration.

 As you know I love bicycles, I used the Bicycle stamp and sentiments from Papertrey Ink’s Everyday Button Bits Stamp set and made a set of tags. The yummy  colors and the shine comes from the glossy buttons also from Papertrey Ink. Here are a couple of close ups of the tags.

I have also added matching twine on the tags wherever possible. Hope you like it. I love the gorgeous glossy buttons on them. Another beautiful challenge from  Moxie Fab World blog. If you like to play Tuesday Trigger challenge, here is the link to the blog.

I am enjoying a relaxed sunny Sunday and hope you enjoy your weekend too 🙂
