It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like - yes Christmas!

Hello and Welcome to today's post for
Just Us Girls

Vicki is our Host this week and chosen this
awesome Christmas Themed Photo.

So many elements you can choose from here.
What caught your eye?

I went with the colour in the background
and tried a new way with shaving cream.
You ink your acrylic block then add the shaving cream
scloosh (is that a word?) then swipe it on to
your card stock. Wipe away the excess and repeat
if you need to. I used Tim's Festive Berries.
 To add a bit of interest I then randomly inked a
SU stamp that looked like snow
with Memento Rhubarb and heat embossed Silver
around the middle.
Attached my glittery Kaisercraft Die Cuts
adding some Starform stickers to hang them.
Finished with the Starform Merry Christmas sentiment.
Funny how those out of vogue stickers 
still come in handy sometimes.
Oh and there are 2 gems attached to the gems.

Pop over and see what our Guest Linda
and the Gang created.
Hope you can spare a wee bit of play time
to add your card to our Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in.

Excited to be an Art & Soul Studio Ambassador

Hello and Welcome to my Exciting News.
I have been invited to be an Ambassador for 
It is a 'local to me' amazing craft store 
in Hervey Bay, Queenland.

You walk inside and you know you are indeed in
Craft Heaven!
Just a few shots from their vast supplies!

 and our Afternoon Tea.
was soooooooo yummy!

I don't officially start till November but
I am playing with the October Mood Board
to get me started. 

It's an amazing new adventure for me getting
involved with Mixed Media.
I have only delved in it is a small way
with my card making but now I
want to venture further with all the textures,
paints etc and get messy along the way.
You will get to see me branch out away from 
just cards in the future but for now - 
Here is my finished project.

A quick rundown on products I used
From Art & Soul Studio - 
Studio Light Stencil - MASKMM17
Tim Holtz Stone
Carabelle SA70134 Stamp.
Other supplies - 
Dutchdoobadoo Pop Art Stencil
Gelatos, Brusho's, Gel Medium
Sizzix Embossing Folder
CUTplorations Dies
Gold/White and Lavender Card Stock
Kaisercraft Pearls
Memento Eldenberry Ink. 

As this was NOT my first attempt
I did not photograph or write down all the products I used here.
 I wasn't even sure if this one would turn out.
I will admit I am happy with the end result this time.
Next time will be more informative. 

That's it for now. Thanks so much for hanging in
to check our this longer than normal post.

Till next time - Cherrio from
