Using Blender Pens

Attention: open in a new window. E-mail

Tuesday, 28 June 2016

I have a couple of cards to show you that are coloured with Blender Pens.
I love using this colouring tool as it works sort of like a paint brush but is used, as its name suggests, like a pen. Picking up ink from my ink pad, I can vary the strength of colour that goes on my card, so I am able to fade and blend colours from dark to light.
These cute birds above are from the new "Best Birds" stamp set.
I have made the trees in the foreground from the woodland embossing folder. It works well with this card, I reckon.


Post note gifts

Here are some post note holders that I made back in March for the ladies that attended my extravaganza.
This is a look at the inside...
And these are the bits needed to make it.
The eyes were adhered to the heart (with raised foam dots) which made the heart into a beak and also made a space for the flap closure, to slot down into.


New Catalogue

Saturday, 04 June 2016

The new catalogue is out now with exciting new stamps, new framelits and punches and of course the new in-colours.

It is sad to say goodbye to old favourites, like Blackberry Bliss (below)...

But we are always happy to see the new in-colours. I have made a card with all 5 colours on.
This card was shown to me by Paula Reid at our On-Stage event.

The colours are (from left to right) Sweet Sugarplum, Dapper Denim, Peekaboo Peach, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo.


Vellum Lamp Shade

Sunday, 15 May 2016

This cute little desk lamp is powered by a battery tea light candle, which sits in a wineglass.

The lampshade is made from vellum and decorated using the new Rosegarden thinlit dies from Stampin' Up!

This idea was taught to a group of us demonstrators at our annual stamp camp by Narelle Hoggard
I will be teaching it at my home at the end of this month - Saturday 28th of May.
Email me to book into this class.



Gumnut babies

Tuesday, 03 May 2016

Some of you may remember this punch art card that I made about 18 months or so ago.

Well, I got asked to make another one especially for someone who collects all things to do with the gumnut babies. I made her the original and also ended up designing a new one as well.

And I added some gumnut babies inside the cards and on the envelopes.
I hope she likes them.



Shadow box cards

Wednesday, 27 April 2016

These cards fold flat and look like a standard card until you open them, then you see a shadow box inside. They depth of looking through the hole to the picture inside is quite unexpected and that's what makes this such a fun card.

Gold Butterfly
Class project at the end of last year.

Under the Sea
A fun card that I made for my display table, with a square window.

Guy Greetings
This was made by someone on my team, not sure who to give the credit to? Maybe Bev Poultney.

These two cards are what I will be making in my next class on Tuesday 26th of April.
The class starts at one o'clock. Everyone is welcome to attend but you do need to book in your spot.
This 'Nice Cuppa' card was designed by my talented team member, Janice McConnell.

This second card was designed by another amazing team member, Bev Poultney.



Joy Fold Butterfly Basics Card

Monday, 11 April 2016

I love the final result of this card. I was playing around with different 'anchors' for my joy fold card and came up with this unique butterfly idea.

If you pinch the butterfly's wings together, it will slide through the word window slot and you can open the card.

The butterfly is attached to the card front. My customers who made this in our classes recently loved this idea. What do you think?

Please leave a comment. I love to hear from you.
