Birthday box with matching card

I made this box & card for a friend recently. I thin the silver and black look very elegant. I used the top note die for the base and lid of the box and silver embossed the Medallion Stamp on there.

Testing, Testing 1 2 3

I am trying to figure out how to schedule a post so that is come up at a later time and date. This is a Test.

Patchwork Cards & Others

Hi Everyone

Here are the pictures of last week's technique class cards. We made two different Patchwork cards. They were so quick and easy to do and everyone enjoyed making them. Everyone was gone before 9 o'clock, that's a first!

The first card uses the Tangerine Tango DSP and Tangerine Tango Cardstock, along with Whisper White and Basic Black. I use the Weathered Background stamp on the base card and the sentiment is from Pocket Silhouette. The Word Window Punch was used and a couple of black brads.

The second card uses the papers from the 'CottageWall' DSP pack, plus Rich Razzelberry and a little bit of Whisper White and Pale Plum. I used the Big Shot with the Top Note Die and the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. Punches used were the Scallop Oval, Large Oval and Small Oval plus the now retired Spring Flower Bouquet. The 'Hello' is from the Share a Cup stamp, and there is a Rhinestone brad in the centre of the flower which was sponged with a little bit of Pale Plum ink.

I've had a couple of workshops over the last two weeks so thought I would share some of the cards I made for them.

This birdhouse card was photographed a little bit crooked, sorry.

This card was made in Apricot Appeal(shown here) and also in Almost Amethyst both colours looked very nice. I CASED this card from my upline Jayne Mercer. The stamp set is the level two hostess set available in the Autumn/Winter Mini catalogue.

I'm going on holiday soon, hopefully I will get back here before I go, but if I don't, and things get a bit quiet you know why.

Take care,

I Think Punch Art Might Be Addictive

The more you look at Punch Art the more you want to do it! After the technique class a few weeks ago and then the tractor, now I've added another punch art card to my collection.

A few days ago I was asked if I had any stamps with sheep or shearing sheds on them, but the answer was no. Then I started thinking about punch art, had a quick look around on the internet, saw quite a few different versions of sheep and started to fiddle around with punches. Here is what I came up with.

Isn't that cute!

Hope you 've all had a great weekend.

Retiring Colours Running Low!

The following was posted on the Stampin' Up! Demonstrators website this morning:

5 June 2010

With our recent Colour Renovation announcement, we have experienced an increase in demand for some of our retiring colours. We need to clarify that beginning now, all retiring colour products are available only while supplies last. As we run out of retiring items, you may notice that they are no longer available in OEX. This does not refer to items that go on backorder; these orders will be fulfilled. While our Australian and New Zealand markets have not run out of any retiring products, we may before the new catalogue begins on 1 September.

Although the cost to reorder and airfreight additional retiring colour products to cover extra sales would be immense, the decision is not strictly a financial one; we have always been committed to doing what is right for you. If it were simply a matter of placing additional orders for retiring products and taking a financial hit, the decision would be made to do so. The main problem is that, if we place orders for the discontinuing products, we run the risk of postponing product production of our new colours. To begin the new Stampin' Up! year without inventory of our new colours would be tragic.

You may be asking yourself: Didn't Stampin' Up! anticipate increased demand on retiring colours? The quick answer is yes, we did. The long answer is a bit more complicated. We based our forecasts for these retiring colours on historical sales information from previous colour transitions, as well as current buying behaviours. Obviously, even with the most careful planning, the response to a transition of this nature can surprise everyone--including you in your own business and personal purchases!

So it looks like if you were thinking of stocking up on any of the retiring colour products, - inks, refills, cardstock, markers etc, it might be better to do it sooner rather than later! Go here to see the retiring colours.

Contact me by phone or email if you would like to place an order.
