Dragonfly Dreams Card

Tuesday 28 March 2017

I'm loving this dragonfly - it's going to be my new favourite and featuring on all those male cards I used to have such a hard time creating. I look forward to teaming it with the Urban Underground Specialty DSP - watch this space.

The sun is finally shining here so I'm off to enjoy the last of it while I cook dinner - the sun streams in my kitchen at this time of year!

Hey, Chick Card

Monday 27 March 2017

With Sale-A-Bration nearly over for another year I couldn't miss an opportunity to create a card using the Hey, Chick Stamp Set. The images and sentiments in this set are very funky!
The Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack from the Occasions Catalogue is a definite favourite - I'm onto my second stack! I used the new Watercolour Pencils to colour in my chick. They are so easy to use and create a perfectly water-coloured image.
A few enamel shapes, some linen thread and a mini paper clip complete my card. I think these will make great Easter cards this year.

And of course a strip of DSP and cardstock for a very simple but tidy insert to finish it off.

Remember if you'd like to get this stamp set you only have 5 days left to place a qualifying order. Please contact me asasp if you'd like to at angela.frank00@gmail.com. I'd love to hear from you.

Inside the Lines Card

Sunday 26 March 2017

I love Teneale William's cards and projects - everything she creates is amazing and has a little something extra that sets her apart from the rest. I am an absolute fan of Teneale's (if you hadn't already guessed) so today when I saw this gift bag I decided to CASE (Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit) it to create a card.

 And here's what I came up with -

I used the Pop of Pink Specialty DSP with the Inside the Lines DSP from the SAB brochure. The It's your day stamp is from the Oh Happy Day Card Kit. I cut the little flower from the Inside the Lines DSP and coloured it in Melon Mambo. For those who don't want to colour in the Inside the Lines DSP this is a perfect way to use it. This layout is a great one and I'll be adding it to my library of sketches.

Enjoy your day and see you again soon.

Lucky Elephant Card

Saturday 25 March 2017

To say I'm particularly fond of this elephant is an understatement, after presenting at On Stage with this stamp set I've come to think of him as my own! I thought he went really well with this Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper to make a masculine card and the "celebrate" is from the Party with Cake stamp set.

To give him something a little extra I coated him with glue from the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

It's another cold and wet day in Christchurch again so whilst I'm pretending to be annoyed it's miserable, I'm secretly pleased as it's perfect for stamping!

Neighbourhood Love!

Friday 24 March 2017

We live in a little cul-de-sac with lovely neighbours. This week we have been given beetroot, parsnips, tomatoes and lemons by three of them. Not to mention my other neighbour who is a constant supplier of onions, bananas, cocoa or anything else we seem to be short of when baking or cooking, she is also a great supplier of wine and friendship.
I wanted to give something back to my neighbours to say thank you and how much I appreciated their gifts and kindness, and the best way I knew was to make some cards. I made each neighbour a variety of small gift cards consisting of male and female birthday, baby and thank you.

I tied them up with a piece of ribbon and they're ready to deliver. (Along with some bacon they bought to help my daughter with a fundraiser - we really do have great neighbours!)

I really enjoyed making these cards and they didn't take too long. It was a great way to use up all my small pieces of DSP too!

Aim for Alaska Blog Hop

Wednesday 22 March 2017

Thank you for visiting my blog today on the Aim for Alaska Blog Hop. There is a list of links at the end of this post of all the other demonstrators joining the Blog Hop so there'll be lots of creative projects to admire.

Has anyone ever inspired you? I mean really inspired you to work harder than you have ever worked before, longer hours, missed meals and let your cup of tea go cold? Well I've finally met that person and her name is Kylie Bertucci! And for me not to drink a hot cup of tea well that's never been done before! There's a reason why Kylie is the number one demonstrator in Australia - she's amazing! She's motivational, kind, tough, hardworking and wouldn't expect you to do anything she either wouldn't do or hasn't done! Kylie wants to help others succeed in their Stampin' Up!® business and achieve the next Incentive Trip to Alaska so she started the Aim for Alaska Group. I joined this group and ever since have been trying things outside my comfort zone - some days I've felt six foot tall and bullet proof, other days it has reduced me to tears. But with her support and backup I've got up each time, dusted myself off and tried again. I probably won't get the Incentive Trip next year but I will have given it a good shove and at least I'll be heading in the right direction for the next one. So thank you Kylie Bertucci!
I'm so excited that this is my first blog hop and here's my card:

I love the comradery of this group, everyone supports each other either to celebrate their success or lift them up if they need it.  And the guest speakers have been amazing - so much knowledge and willingness to share! I want to go to Alaska just to see and meet them in real life.

So my friends this is my little boat. My Aim for Alaska boat! Made with the Swirly Bird Bundle and By the Shore Designer Series Paper.

There's even a boat on the inside!
I love being a Stampin' Up!® demonstrator, everything about it is great - the product, the people, the places - everything. If you'd like to find out how you can be part of this amazing journey please contact me as I'd love to share Stampin' Up!® with you.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy hopping xx
