Same card.... different colours!

Here are two cards that I have made. They are essentially the same card but they just use different colours and the difference in how they look is amazing. The first card I usedNot Quite Navy, So Saffron and Regal Rose. The second set I used Pretty in Pink and Barely Banana. While I did use pink and yellow in both, the addition of the dark blue makes the crayon resist technique all the more obvious. What do you think? Which one do you like better?


On Friday night I had a workshop at my sister's house. We had a great time and the girls were really thrilled with their creations. We made Christmas cards using SU's Sleigh Full of Toys.

This is Emma and the card that we made!

My Website

Well I have finally worked out how to make a website all by myself. And I must say... I am quite pleased with how it has turned out. I read lots of blogs and websites to get ideas but it is basically all mine.
Let me know what you think!

Pink Christmas Cards

I know I said I would post a couple of times a week and I haven't but.... woring 3 days a week is making my time very limited!Anyhow... enough excuses!

Here is the card that my guests will make at the demo I am having on Friday night at my sister's house. Seeing as it is so close to Christmas, I decided that would get them to make a Christmas card. My sister just loves pink and thought that I would combine the two! I just love the fresh new look of these colours. Let me know what you think!

I have used:
Stamps: Sleigh Full of Toys and Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip and Pretty in Pink
Inks: Black Stazon, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White Craft
Accessories: White grosgrain ribbon, 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 circle punches

Card Swap

I am involved in a card swap on Kim Gavarra's INKcredibles Forum. We each had to design (or CASE) a card and then make up kits for the other people in the swap. here is my creation. I CASED the idea from SCS (Split Coast Stampers) gallery... can't remember who. I have used Heidi Grace paper, blue and yellow cardstock and blue and yellow brads. I also used white satin ribbon. The bags are made using Stampin' Up!'s tag punch and 2 oval punches. I like the colours together.
