Just Add Ink #45

Well i didn't have to try to hard to make a card for this weeks JUST ADD INK challenge.
I have one of my very very oldest friends little boy turning 1 next week and yesterday one of my most cherish girlfriends invited me around to help make her X mas cards all day long.
So while i was in 100% card making mode i made this card.
I had such a great time and the chance to Raid my friends stash and use stamps that i don't have.
Im not going to pop a card recipe on this one cause its a mix of Su and non SU but i was so excited to use "All in the family " to make the little birthday boy on my card(and i didn't use a stamp-a-ma-jig either)
till next time

i also brayed over the embossing folder image with some ink and a brayer and then used some glitter to make it stand out to have ago at this challenge please visit Just add Ink

Stampin Up Workshop 16-10-2010

I finally had my very first stampin up workshop.
Firstly a very humongous Thank you to the lovely Rachel Jackson for running my party and just being awesome . My friends and family had a great afternoon of girly chat and card making, the conversation seemed to focus on babies as so many of my girlfriends and family are pregnant or have a baby. Not this little black duck(not yet anyway)
i got so caught up in the day i didn't take photos of everyone having fun
but i took some photos of the cards we made and i also made some gifts to thank everyone for coming
Rach made some great cards for us an i think we inspired everyone for Christmas. we also showed that there are some fantastic colors that you can use for xmas not just red and green

till next time

Just Add ink # 39 add blue

Hi guys
This weeks challenge from the Just add ink team is Incorporated with such a thoughtful cause. They would like to raise awareness of what i would describe a silent disorder of depression and anxiety. I personally have experienced the effect of depression and anxiety on family and friends and it can be just a debilitating as cancer. Its so sad to know that someone close to you can never have the strength to ask for help or they feel so alone that they cannot confide in anyone and find that the easiest way out is to shut everyone out or to end there life. Being blue is not fun and this is a great cause to support.

When i made this card i wanted to think that if i had to give a card to someone who may not be feeling the best today and needed a pick me up to get through the day and this is what i can up with

Just Add Ink #36

Hi guys
this weeks Just add ink #36 is all ready to go with a sketch challenge. i wanted to go bright an funky this week as it was such a beautiful sunny Sydney day , looks like winter is long gone. whats even better about this card is that i did not cut into a new piece of card stock, i used all the left overs from previous challenge cards i have done. I think this card looks yummy . I've topped the ice-cremes with some kindy glitz to make them shinny but the photo just doesn't do it justice

Just Add Ink # 30/ Inkspirations challenge #34

First of all i would like to mention that it is only Two more weeks till the new SU catalouge hits Australia and I am soooo excited.
i havent got much of a chance to stamp this weekend so i an combining a few goals in one with this card. Well we've been busy visiting our new Nephew who arrived on Wednesday.His name is Zain Nicholas Moore and he is sooo cute, and my husband is soooo clucky. He was a whooper at 3.93 kgs. (must be the Moore Genes)
So this card is going to one on my Good friends Who is 30 today. We went out to dinner at the Meat and Wine Co in Parramatta last night and i dont think i will eat for a week.
So i have used to challenges for my inspiration. the Inkpirations sketch Challenge #34 , but more special is the Just add in #30 Challenge. Add Honor of a very special little boy name Hudson who needs some help to raise money for a walker. The stamping community is amazing to come together to help a family in need. If you want to read more about helping Hudson please click here , and if you want to play along with either challenge visit Inkspirations and Just add Ink
So this turned out to be a great masculine card. here's a tip, if you don't have nestabilities or dies to cut out scallop ovals or circles, I have used my oval cutter first and then carefully punched the edge with a scallop punch to achieve a similar look hope this helps
Till next time peace out

Fox and Friends

So my brother in law and his wife are about to give birth any second. (shes due today) so i thought that i would make a baby card to welcome the new arrival when it turns up. They know they are having a boy so i thought what a perfect time to whip out fox and friends... I have the say that i did case the design for this from another blog called let me stamp, so i cant take all the credit .

Just Add ink #29

Hi Guys,
This weeks challenge from the just add ink girls is a colour Challenge. I was glad that i could get back to my roots and be as girly and blingy as i wanted to be. I don't have always artichoke , so i have substituted with Mellow Moss which is sadly going to Stampin up colour heaven.
I started off making one card and then made another with the left overs . I was happy with both cards so i'm going to show off both.
If you were wondering how i did the ticket corners on the birthday card, i just used the scalloped oval punch and nipped off the corners to make the pearls stand out a little more. If you want to join in on the fun please click here
