Stamped Gift Wrap - Off the Page.

Why not consider making the packaging the main event with a hand-stamped design like this.
A soft colour combination works perfectly with the Balloon Celebration stamp set and the thick bakers' twine mimics a 3D bow around the bunch of balloons. Genius!

As well as blogging and catching up with my social media friends I am in the midst of cleaning my craft room today. It is a rainy Saturday here in Sydney, and perfect crafting weather. Happy weekend to you all.

Foxy Friends and Fairies! Stampin' Up! Australian Demonstrator.

I love this stamp set. It's perfect for a little princess. I paired it with the designer series paper "a little foxy" and decided to try 2 different colour ways using the toadstool paper. 

 This second card is so pretty in real life. The monotone basic grey and smokey slate work so well with the silver satin ribbon. I embossed the message using white embossing powder and it looks elegant and very sweet.

Watch the video tutorial for both these cards here.

Get Well Soup . A Cure for the Winter Sniffles.

Winter has well and truly arrived in Sydney this week, with snow falls on the Blue Mountains and chilly winds. Here is a get well card that will put a smile on your face. This single image rubber stamp can be used in a multitude of ways. This card is simple and quick to make using limited supplies.

Stamp the Get Well Soup stamp in basic Black ink and colour the bowl with a little Wisteria Wonder ink and an Aqua Painter. Cut out using the Oval Framelits, and pop up on dimensionals onto some co-ordinating Designer Series Paper. Tie a double length of Whisper White Bakers Twine around your paper and adhere to a Whisper White Card Base.
