Geared Up Garage

I gave myself a little challenge this week to create a 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder.  This is something I have been wanting to try for a while.

I used one of the sheets of patterned paper from the Classic Garage 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper Pack and designed 4 cards for my little challenge.



Card 1 uses the 2" x 6" strip of patterned paper, adhered to the card front and the excess timmed off.


Card 2 is a bit of an illusion, as it only uses the two 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" squares of patterned paper.  These are just adhered to the card front behind the centre panel.


Card 3 uses the 3" x 1 1/2" pieces.  These 3 pieces are matted onto Basic Black mats before being adhered to the card front.


Card 4 is also a bit of an illusion as it uses the two 1" x 3" strips of pattern paper.  These are matted onto Basic Black cardstock before being adhered to the card front behind the Crushed Curry panel.

Cheryl's Card

I had a lovely morning yesterday at the Dome Mindarie having morning tea with two of my best friends and their hubbies celebrating Cheryl's birthday.

What is a birthday celebration without a card! 


Cheryl loves the neutral palette so I designed her card using just Whisper White and Crumb Cake.

We had a great morning chatting and catching up and it was so nice down near the Mindarie Harbour, very relaxing.

Mother's Day Cards in February - What is Going On?

What is going on? I was recently asked by a work colleague to make some Mother's Day cards for a relative of hers who is visiting from England so that she could take them home with her.

My post yesterday was one of the cards that is going back to England and this is the other card that will also be going along for the ride.




I have used a colour scheme of Merry Merlot, Whisper White and Mossy Meadow.

The rose is from the Healing Hugs stamp set which I fussy cut after stamping, the leaves are also from this set.  The foliage behind the rose is from the Foliage Frame Framelits which were cut from Mossy Meadow cardstock and Vellum.

Like the lace edge behind the centre panel? This was made using the Delicate Lace Edgelits and Merry Merlot cardstock.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Neutrals Paper Stack.

The 'Happy Mother's Day' sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.  I added a Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon bow and some Rhinestones to finish my card.

Just Add Ink #443... "Choose Two"

Hi everyone, I am playing along with the challenge this week at Just Add Ink.


I have chosen Colouring and Sequins as my "Two Choices".


Colour scheme is Lemon Lime Twist, Basic Black and Whisper White.  There is just something about these colours together that catches my eye everytime.

I have use the Well Said stamp set and the Well Written Framelits for the sentiment with the circle background stamped using the images from the Beauty Abounds stamp set.  The butterflies are from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper which I have punched out using the Butterfly Duet Punch before colouring with Lemon Lime Twist.

Thank you for visiting.

Freshly Made Sketches #374

I pondered a bit before making my card for the challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  
My first thought was to use the Butterfly Gala stamp set and the Butterfly Duet Punch but as you can see there is not a butterfly in sight.


I used the Artisan Textures stamp set to stamp the dotted image background.  The stars were made using the Wood Crate Framelits and the Twinkle Builder Punch.

To make the stars with the hollow centre I cut the star using the Wood Crate Framelits and then cut around the image using the indent lines made by the Framelit.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. The stars and sentiment were arranged on the Stitched Rectangle with the stamped background and this was then adhere to the card front using dimensionals.

#CTC214 Sunday Challenge

Hi everyone, I have joined in the CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge this week.

cover photo, Image may contain: text

The #CTC214 challenge is to CASE something from the Sale-a-Bration Catalogue.

No photo description available.

For my card I have cased the sketch on the Daffodil Delight card on page 9 and also the butterflies and the butterfly elements on pages 8 & 9 of the Sale-a-Bration Catalogue.


The colours for my card I cased from Rochelle Blok who is a member of the 2019 Artisan Design Team.  I also cased the Vellum overlay and the DSP behind it.  I just love the Whisper White, Basic Black and Mango Melody colour scheme that Rochelle has put together.

Freshly Made Sketches #373

Hi everyone, the weeks are just flying by and I nearly forgot to post my entry for this week's challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.


I have used the Postcard Pals stamp set for my card.  I love the little critters in this set, they are just perfect for colouring and adding that little bit extra to your card.


I coloured the image with Watercolour Pencils and an Aquapainter.

The strips of blue behind the image are Night of Navy, Pacific Point and Balmy Blue.  This sketch is also great for using those strips of cardstock or patterned paper that you always seem to have left over from projects.

Thank you for visiting.
