Autumn Garden Bagalope

This is one of the make and takes we did at my last workshop. Its a larger version of a Bagalope Abi showed me the first time I met her and one of my favourite projects. When finished this will hold a 6"x 6" Scrapbook Album or one of the new Art Journals and makes a lovely gift.

This one I created using an A4 Envelope, 2 Sheets of Very Vanilla Cardstock, Leaves A La Carte Jumbo Roller, Eyelet Border Punch and the Autumn Days Stamp set. My ladies had a lot of fun decorating their bags using the Touch of Naure, Lovely As A Tree, Pocket Silhouettes and Autumn Days Sets and not one was the same which is one of the reasons I love workshops!

Thanks for looking.

Funky Friday # 37


Another late entry for Abi's Challenges. This time we had to use Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and either Ruby or Real Red.
The main image is from the wonderful and very versatile Lovely As A Tree Stamp Set and is coloured using Chocolate Chip and Old Olive Inks. I have highlighted the tree using Dazzlin' Diamonds although it doesn't show up very well in the photo.
Greeting is from a retired hostess set and is stamped using Ruby Red Ink with the help of a Stamp-a-ma-jig to create a border. This has then been mounted onto a "ribbon"of Chocolate Chip Cardstock created using the fabulous new Eyelet Border Punch.

Funky Friday # 36

Colours for this challenge were Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie and Very Vanilla.

I made a halloween shaker card using the retired hostess set Window Dressing along with the pumpkins from the Loadsa Love Accessories Stamp Set.

Greeting is handwritten in Perfect Plum Ink onto Vanilla Oval and layered onto Elegant Eggplant Scalloped Oval. Card is finished with some Pumpkin Pie 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon.

Funky Friday # 35


This is one of my very late entries for Abi's Funky Friday Challenge.
We had to use Bordering Blue, Not Quite Navy, Basic Grey, Whisper White and Sahara Sand.
The main image is taken from the retired Summer By The Sea set and stamped in Basic Grey onto Whisper White and watercoloured using grey and both blues. Image is matted onto torn ovals of both blues and mounted onto a Whisper White card which has a background created using Bordering Blue and Not Quite Navy inks.
I didn't actually have any Sahara Sand for this project but I think the colour challenge worked quite well without it.
Thanks for looking.

Touch Of Nature Birthday


I created this card using the Touch of Nature and Sincere Salutations SU Stamp sets along with a Horse Stamp from my stash. The main image is stamped using Basic Black ink onto copper pearlescent and then matted onto Whisper White and Chocolate Chip Cardstock.

The sentiment is embossed in gold onto a Chocolate Chip Oval and mounted onto a Whisper White Scalloped Oval using the SU punches. The background was made using the lovely fern stamp from the Touch of Nature set randomly stamped in Choc Chip, Really Rust and Pumpkin Pie Ink. The card has been finished using a piece of Pumpkin Pie 1/4"Grosgrain Ribbon.
