Card Share - and secret revealed

Hi All,

I hope your having a great day ..I am.

I can finally reveal a secret that I have been hiding for the past couple of days...I am in South Australia...surprising my parents and friends for a visit..It is also my Dad's 70th Birthday today Wednesday 30th Sept. That is also why I had to do the hurry bulk lot of Cuttlebug stuff over the past week or so.

Altho this post says I posted it yesterday..I actually drafted it before I went away.

Here is the card I made for him .. I have used SB Paper Argyl - Stripes (4593) Admiral Bazzill (4213) Oatmeal Card, Mini Messages (006KK) , Roman Clock (003KD), Fluer STamp (4190KC), Cute Letter Alphabet (1773LN), Label Numbers (2003LH), Mini Fasteners Antique (4421), Pewter Spiral Clip (4388) Brown Aqua Stitch Ribbon (70907).

The first picture is the front of the card....

The ute stamp is from Stamp It is no longer sold by Kaszazz... I used this image a couple of years ago on a card I made for dad , he loved it, unaware to me that this image meant a lot to him ..it actually reminded him of a car he use to own when he was younger..so that is why I have used this stamp again...Mum actually reminded me the other day how much he loved that card ..So I'm sure he will love this one...

This is the card open....onthe middle section where I will write I stamped the Roman Clock (003KD) image as we are giving him a Watch which is engraved

I will be back at the end of next week after I get back from holidays...

Til then Happy Scrappin' ... Joanne

** PLEASE NOTE *** ..I actually wrote this earlier in the week..(Tuesday before I went away on holidays ) I have only just had a chance to get internet access and to be able to show it on my blog.

I''ve Caught the Bug......

Hi all,

Remember when I mentioned in yesterdays post I had been busy the past week or so...

Well this is some of what I have been doing....

I've caught the Bug.....

No.... not the virus or bad type of bug.

Iv'e been playing with my Cuttlebug ..and been busy cutting out die shapes..I cut about 200 all up...I cut them to give to my Mum. I got her hooked into cardmaking and papercraft too, but she doesnt have a Cuttlebug..

Here is just a few shapes / characters I created.... (not all card stack used is from Kaszazz) some have multiples in different colours. Most of these characters are more than 3 shapes combined to form the finished product.

Here are some Wedding / love themed die cuts...I love the handcuffs I used some silver metalic cardstock on some of these..I did the horse shoe in some silver metalic also.

Here are some Christmas ones ..

I love the reindeers I actually inked around the edges to give them a 3d look.. I used some Kaszazz Bazzil Bling - "Glitz (4671) on the Bauble Tag and then also embossed it Snowflakes using the cuttlebug Machine. I also did the Bauble Die Cuts in a Green Metalic and Red metalic..they look gorgeous.

Below is my Spring Theme Set ...

I just love how the shimmer paper I used on the butterflies turned out..its a Pearlised shimmer paper..I'm not sure where I got it from, I collected it along my travels somewhere.

I just love my cute animals below.. Including Winnie the Pooh...he is a cut and emboss.. The horse and the Rabbit Peekers are very time consumming to make. The horse consits of 8 different pieces and then I highlighted bits with my White Gel pen.

The bunnies consist of 9 pieces and I inked the edge of ever piece before sticking them together, then added detail with my Black pen.

Last but not least is my Seaside collection with a couple of others ..

the dolphins and the boots were also done in the Glitz Bazzill Bling , the bee I used some Bright Lights Bazzill Bling (4668).I loved how they turned out.

I still have other Dies I haven't used..but I ran out of time..I will do some another time..

I love my Bug.........

Cheers Joanne

Card Share - Using Scraps

Hi All,

Wow how eerie the sky was today here in parts of Qld and parts of NSW...The sky glowed a orange / red colour.. A huge dust storm is from Outback South Australia is what caused it, due to the strong winds .... You can still smell the dust now, not so good for sinus.

These pictures have not been photoshoped.. The first picture is here in Brisbane

Here is a today and a normal shot of the sky in Sydney

On to todays card .....Here is another card sample showing how to put your left over scraps to good use..

I have used some Dots - Squares (4629) SB Paper from our Blossom Range to make the pin wheels, also used Stripes (4631) SB Paper from the Blossom Range, Marmalade Bazzill (4456), Parakeet Bazzill (4222), 8 x 8 White card (4040) for the base and a brad in each pinwheel to hold down the points.
