A Birthday Card for Amy!

This card is for a very special little friend of mine who was adopted by two very loving parents. She was born with a cleft lip and has endured many cosmetic and dental surgeries to correct the problem. There are still many more operations to come. She is a lovely little girl and is always so bubbly and I get to see her every time she has an appointment at The Children's Hospital where I work. Happy Birthday Amy! I've used a Lawn Fawn's Critters Downunder stampset for this card with alphabet dies from MFT Dienamics. I'm adding this card to Virginia View's Challenge - Add Embellishments (Glitter tape and glass drops) and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes. Thanks for dropping by!

Scrabble Card for a 10th Birthday

I finally got my Simon Says Stamp order last week and couldn't wait to stamp the 'Game Tile Letters' stampset - it was so much fun!! I'll definitely be using this over and over again!!

A Little Sunshine...

... is just what the Doctor recommended. We got a bit of sunshine yesterday in Melbourne's coldest winter month! I've made this card for A Blog Named Hero's latest challenge - Make the Sentiment the Star. I couldn't think of a better sentiment than this one, which has been hibernating in my stash for a while now. I really love the different combination of wordings that can be added to it! I'm also adding this card to Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes. Thanks for dropping by!

Rainbow Butterflies for a 15th Birthday!

When I saw Gayatri's stunning butterfly card on A Blog Named Hero, I was keen to case it. But since I don't have the same stamp, mine a a modified version of her card. I still want to do another one with the bigger butterfly using masking technique. This card is for a 15th birthday and the diecut has got 4 layers of coloured cardstock glued to highlight the numbers.  Thanks for dropping by!

I'm adding this card to the following challenges:
A Blog Named Hero - Photo Inspiration
Virginia View's Challenge - 100% Stamped
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Anything Goes
CAS(E) this Sketch - Sketch #131

100% Stamped Birthday Card!

I re-visited a card I made over two years ago with some additional new stamps. I also used my trusty MISTI for this card and made two at the same time. I positioned all the stamps first and stamped a template before stamping them with the individual colours. The blank spaces were filled up the tiny stamps that come with some of the stamp sets I used. The inks and most of the stamp sets are from Hero Arts with one stamp set from Paper Smooches. I just love mixing the fonts and colours and because it is 100% stamped, I'm adding this to Virginia View's current challenge. Thanks for dropping by!

A 60th Birthday card

I recently received a whole set of Ranger Inks (enabled by Jennifer McGuire) and I have not had a chance to ink them all up. When I saw Virginia View's Challenge #16 - 100% Stamped, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to use them! I based my card on the current CAS(E) this sketch #130 and Paper Smooches Stamps with a bit of my dotty artwork added.

I'm submitting for the following challenges:
CAS(E) this Sketch #130 Leigh Penner
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - We're going Dotty
Paper Smooches Sparks Anything Goes

Inspired by Joceyln Olson

When I saw Taheera's interview on the Gossip Column with Joceyln Olson, I knew I had to case one of her cards. I decided to base my card on one of the cards featured with my own twist to it. I used a lovely paper collection from Kaisercraft called Miss Match (no longer available, but I like to hoard the nice collections) and the Winnie and Walter stamp set 'The Big, The Bold and The Extras'. I stamped the flower and leaves on patterned paper and fussy cut them out. I also white embossed on vellum as well as Jocelyn did this in some of her cards. Here is my interpretation of a Jocelyn Olson card. Thanks for dropping by!
