A Twofer for Just Us Girls

It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls and Hosting is Elizabeth
and choosing the Mini Slimline Trend Challenge was 
the very talented former Jugs Designer Angie -
Queen of the Slimline Creations.

I landed up making two very different cards

The first card is my favourite background in pastel colours,
heat embossing the In Bloom Plumerias from STAMPlorations
with Nuvo Gold Enchantment EP.
Sentiment is STAMPlorations Fond Expression 2
attached to a strip of yellow onto pretty pink card base.
Second card has me using some of my newish dies again
in red and black backed with embossed dp
framed in red and attached to grey card base.
Added a bit of red cotton and grey die cut sentiment.
They were so fun to make. Now it is your turn to 
make a mini slimline card and add to our Gallery.
Hope to see you there after you have been inspired by 
our November Guest Rachel and the Teams make.
Thanks for dropping in

A Remembrance Day Thank You

 It's time for our New Challenge over at
Sistah Birgit has chosen the theme
Give Thanks
Tomorrow is Remembrance Day here in Australia.
The day is dedicated to Australians who died as a result of war.
My card for this challenge is
In Remembrance and to Give Thanks

here's a close up of the poppies

I love inking up the Rubbernecker stamps as 
you can get a nice artsy look.
I used their Watercolour Poppies using a
water brush with Lindy's Cuckoo Clock Cardinal
and Cathedral Pines, Brusho's Brilliant Red and
Nuvo Solar Flare Shimmer Powder. 
Added a touch of Perfect Pearls in Forever Red.
Uniball white pen touched up in the centres
and flicked some splatters.
The poppies were heat embossed with Ranger Black.
A little bit of scoring and SU Lotus Blossom sentiment 
heat embossed. 
Attached to a black background onto white card base.
Pop over and see what my Sistahs made.
Love to see your Give Thanks cards in our Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in

A Fun Fold Card for Someone Special

It's time for our New Challenge at 
and this month we are looking for

I love making Christmas cards with my
Spellbinders Poinsettia Dies and for our 
Fun Fold Challenge this is what I chose -
and found an old Cottage Craft one I thought
would be a nice backing piece.
Going for a simple twisted easel card
as they lay flat and easy for posting.

I wanted something different to stand out for my big leaves
and gilding flakes came to mind.

There is a lot going on with this card 
mainly with lots and lots of die cutting from 
Spellbinders and Cottage Craft for the Poinsettias.
Tim's Holiday Greens and a few Kaisercraft leaves.
Blue card stock has been stenciled with transparent texture paste.
Iridescent paper for the dies, Iridescent Medium on poinsetia.
Nuvo Sparkle Dust in red, Zing Metallic Silver EP,
Spellbinder Label, Inspired by Stamping Sentiment,
Liquid Pearls dusted with Sparkle Dust.
I think that's it.
Whew that was mammoth!
Pop over and see what fun fold the rest of the Team created.
We would love to see yours in our Gallery.
Cherrio for now

Celebrate the Season

 'tis getting really close to Christmas isn't it and
How are you doing with creating your Christmas Cards?
Lucky for me I have been able to build up my supplies this year.
My card today is for the New Challenge over at 

The beautiful Christmas Poinsettia stamp from
STAMPlorations came out to play on this card.
I chose to go with cool blue-ish tones,
heat embossed in navy
and colouring with Lindy's Magicals,
some iridescent medium and perfect pearls for shimmer.
Fussy cut and popped on to weathergrain paper
and navy card base.
Added liquid pearls and some fine glitter
to the centre of the flower while still wet.
Finished with a few gems.
Pop over and see what my Team Mates created
and hope to see you in our Gallery.
Thanks for coming by.
