You'll Always Be....

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday Post for
Just Us Girls and this week's Host is Vicki
for our Colour Week.

I have made a few cards similar to this
with that old rockin' chair and sarcastic sentiment.
I think they work perfectly together
and makes a nice easy CAS card.
The stamps and sentiments are all from
STAMPlorations and I simply 
splattered (as I do) my background with
Tim's Peacock Feathers/Fossilized Amber
and Carved Pumpkin.
I added some Nuvo drops and glitter
to the candle and added
coloured paper to the back in matching colours.
Adhered it to my white cards base
and my male card was done.
Couldn't sent that to a female could I?

Pop over and see what Claire our November Guest
created as well as my Talented Team Mates
and join us in this fun colour challenge.

It's 'Holiday Time' at Addicted to Stamps and More

Christmas is a comin' so it's timely that
the New Challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More
is a Holiday Theme but you don't have to
make a Christmas card - any holiday is fine!
Hello and Welcome. Nice of you to drop in
to see what I have for you today.


It's a pretty simple card with some 2 step stamping.
My Holly stamp is from STAMPlorations Layered-Holly
inked with Tim's Distress Inks in
Festive Berries/Crushed Olive/Mowed Lawn.
Added some splatters and glittered up
the red berries.
Sentiment is popped and I add small strips
of red glitter to match the berries.
Simply added both to white card base and I'm done.

Pop over and see what Holiday projects
my Team Mates have made and come join us
in the Gallery this week.

Our 4th 'Giving Thanks' Blog Hop at STAMPlorations

It's our 4th 'Giving Thanks Blog Hop
and Linky Party at STAMPlorations with so much to tell you - 
 I thought it easier to send you For All the Details HERE!
that is - 
after you finish reading my Post!
Here are two cards I made keeping them CAS
 to showcase how gorgeous this stamp set is
with such perfect sentiments suitable for any occasion.

Image may contain: text

I have inked up the gorgeous Grateful Flutters Stamps
designed by our very own Shery Russ. Since I had my
rather neglected Oxide Inks out I decided to use them
for both cards.
Card 1 - I randomly inked my butterflies onto white card stock,
corner rounded, added some sequins and gems
and some tiny inked pink hearts from Balloons & Banners
with my sentiment in black, attaching to 
a hot pink card base.
Card 2 - has the background inked
multiple times to cover then heat embossed in white.
Sentiment is also heat embossed.
Flicked some water marks,
 a bit of grunge from Art Marks
and some white dots from an inked eraser end of a pencil.
No bling needed here.


There are lots of ways for you to win Prizes - over $200 in fact.

Hello 'Beautiful'

Hello and Welcome to today's post.
It's my turn to Host for our Trend Week at
Just Us Girls
I chose Bleach as it is a technique I haven't tried before
and I know it has been around for an age. 
I'm afraid my card didn't photograph too well.
I think the metallic shimmer made it tricky.
The beautiful Lily Stamp and Sentiment
I used here are from STAMPlorations
 Smile and Hello Coffee
I heat embossed my flower with
Lindy's Pumpkin Fiesta
and then worked on bleaching.
When that was dry I added colour with
some metallic paints. This was cut from
a Spellbinder die with SU Groovy Guava
card stock - same as my base.
I popped that onto some metallic paper
attaching some ribbon to the side.
Sentiment was inked with
SU Calypso Coral. Finished with pearls.

Hope you can pop over and see what our
November Guest Claire and my Team Mates
created for your pleasure and get time
to get out some bleach from the laundry
and play with us this week.
Look forward to seeing you in our Gallery.

Thanks for dropping in and leaving
such kind comments.

A Very Special 'THANK YOU'

Hello and Welcome to a Special Post.
Each year I make a card with Poppies 
for Remembrance Day in Australia.

Image result for remembrance day

This post is a few days early but thought it
perfect for our Anything Goes with Dies at

I kept it CAS using a background
done with predominately Red Alcohol Inks on Yupo Paper.
I cut the Perky Poppy from my Memory Box Die
and attached to the background.
Added a frame and a simple Thank You
sentiment in gold.
Pop over and see more die cuts from my Team Mates
and come join us this month.

Time to Give 'Thanks'

November has come around and it is time for our 
New CUTplorations Challenge over at
Hello and Welcome to today's Post.

I started my card by smooching a background with
Lindy's Magical's in Rose Pink then stenciled
with ARTplorations Droplets with clear embossing powder.
My background for the floral stamp was sponged with
Tim's Abandoned Coral, Carved Pumpkin,
Fired Brick and Ripe Persimmon
I then got out my Bloom Sketches and randomly
stamped again using  Ripe Persimmons in a shadow effect.
I added glossy accents to the centre of the main flower
 and while wet sprinkled with
 Stampendous Aged Copper Embossong Enamel
but did not melt it.
Added a touch of Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the other two flowers.
I added a small frame in a lighter pink then popped
to my droplet background and finally to 
SU Groovy Guava card base.
Finished with my Thanks sentiment from 
and some scattered pearls.


Pop on over and see what my Team Mates have made
for your pleasure and come join us in our Gallery.
