Wine label card 4

Another wine label card to add to my collection. I've made a series of these cards and each one is slightly different. I've made this using distress inks on water colour paper, wetting just the watercolour paper and not the wine label. Love this effect! I'm adding this card to Simon Says Stamp - Make your own background challenge. Thanks for dropping by!

Nerdy Cards

OK, I'll admit it, working in Medical Science and with computers - I'm a nerd!! I love making cards and even better when I make ones closer to home! This nerdy card of mine got recently published in September issue of Papercrafts and Scrapbooking (pg 56)!


PCS is running a September Nerdy Challenge on Flickr and here is my submission made for a farewell for one of my staff at work. I'm also adding this card to A Blog Named Hero Challenge #51 - Spell It Out For Me. Thanks for dropping by!


I made a matching envelope to hold the gift cards as well! Photo taken in my section of the laboratory.

Runway Inspired

As Melbourne celebrated Melbourne Spring Fashion Week this week, it is most appropriate to make a card inspired by a Runway design. I love the current Runway Inspired photo of Veronica Beard's design. I decided to use patterned paper for this card. I could not find any houndstooth PP or washi so opted out for a polka dot washi tape instead. I'm also adding this to Simon Says Stamp Stamptember Stamp-It Challenge. Scroll down to see some of the photos I took last night at MSFW.



RIC# 67 Veronica Beard
Last night, I attended the last day of the MSFW Emerging Students Runway at The Melbourne Town Hall. It was very exciting to look at designs from selected students from various FashionDesign Schools in Melbourne. It was great that one of my friends was selected from the Melbourne School of Fashion for the Runway. We had a great night and here are some of the photos I took.

Casing Debby

The new Case Study Challenge Muse is the ever so talented Debby Hughes. I love her style and love to case her cards. The first challenge for CSC#207 is a lovely card stamped on vellum and coloured on the back with Copics. I was lucky to just receive my new AlteNew stamp set (from my prize money for RIC) and it happened to be the same set that Debby used. Here is my card, and thanks for dropping by! I'm also adding this to a couple of Simon Says Challenges - Work it Wednesday and Wednesday Stamptember Stamp It.

These two are stamped with Paper Smooches Reflections, one card is for a male and the other a female. I'm adding these to Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge - Anything Goes and Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge. Thanks for dropping by!

Botanical Notes - Paper Piecing

Here is the long awaited study on paper piecing with the ever so lovely Penny Black stamp - Botanical Notes. This stamp looks nice on anything!! I have used different patterned papers for the following cards. I'm adding these to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Anything Goes.
Edited to add:
I bought this stamp as I was inspired by Virginia's creative use of this stamp. I'm also adding this to her new Virginia View's Challenge #7 - Patterned Paper.

Runway Inspired #66

When I saw the Runway Inspired Challenge - Sportmax Resort 2015 this week, I couldn't wait to make a card! I have a few roses stamp and the one set that was jumping up and down was one of my old favourites - the SSS Best Mom Ever set. Here is my card based again on the current CAS(E) This Sketch #89. Since I've used a SSS stamp and the Wednesday Challenge is Anything Goes...
