Some mums do have them......

This is my daughter the water rat.This photo was taken in a puddle of water that had been snow last week. She runs along then slides into the puddle, clothes on all.
This is a sneak peek at a stamp set in the new catalogue, Button Buddies. Quite a versatile set for a mixture of age groups. I saw this card on Jennifer Weides blog.
I have used Brights dsp, Early Expresso cardstock.

Nature walk male card

Here is another card that we made at my class last week. Another male card that could be used for any occasion. I received a card like this at Convention in May from Helen McEwen in Taranaki. I changed the colours to use Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze. I have stamped the images in Cajun Craze. The butterfly was stamped once on the card and then twice onto scrap paper and cut out before applying Crystal Effects to the wings. These were placed on the butterfly on the card with Dimensionals.
I have used the stamp set Natures Walk .
The scalloped square is made with the scallop square die cut that goes through the Big shot.

What a day

Well what a day. We've had real blizard like conditions today. The wind has been so bitterly cold. We have received about 3-4 inches of snow. The children have enjoyed a day off school. Haven't made a snowman yet as it keeps on snowing, just when you think its clearing up another shower comes through.
We had a bit of a gap this afternoon to let the animals have a run round with the children. Billy the cat liked sitting on top of the silage, happy to watch the goats.

This is a card that we made at my last card class. This side step card was one of the projects that Bron Heslop made for UStamp with Dawn earlier in the year.
I have used the retired motorcycle from the last mini catalogue. This stamp worked well on this card. The image was stamped onto watercolour paper and then Marina Mist ink was used to colour parts in using an aquapainter.
I have used the spritzer to make it look like gravel under the bike.A piece of white cardstock was placed inside the card and this was also spritzed.

This lovely card was totally cased from Judy May . I have changed the colours but the design was from her card here.
This card showcases one stamp from a new stamp set in the new 2011-2012 Catalogue. The vase is from Button Buddies stamp set. The buttons and ribbon I have used are from a promotion that was held in July. The papers are from the Brights dsp.
I haven't put sentiment on it as this card could be an anything card. I received this stamp set at Convention in May so have been having a wee play with it so I will try and show some other cards made with the stamps in this set.

Rolled Flower card

This is a card that we made out my last Black and White class. The flowers are made by a rolled technique. I saw a video on how to make these here. I have put a little glitter on the petals to make them pop. We had fun making these flowers and making them stay in place. Used mini dots to adhere.

The black part of the main card has been embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. The sentiment is from Oval all.

Only a few weeks until the current Hostess level 1,2,3, stamps are gone. This card I have made with level 2 Hostess stamp set Silhouette Sentiment. I saw it on a blog and have changed the coloures. The Butterfly is from Strength and Hope stamp set which was in the mini catalogue now no longer available.
My niece was baptised at the weekend so I sent her this card. ( She's 13).
