Hardwood stamped card

This is my new favourite stamp. The Hardwood stamp from the new occasional catalogue.I saw a card similar to this and liked the colours. I have stamped the image in Early Expresso and put it onto Sahara  Sand.
The flowers are from Petite Petals which comes with a matching punch.
This stamp would look good used for male or sympathy cards.

Wish Big

I thought I would show you my daughters card that she made for the supplied products handmade card at the Methven show. They were supplied pieces of the red, yellow and blue card as well as the three flowers . So that is what she came up with.Punching the circles and placing them on the white card and embossing with the lattice folder givers the card a really good look.
She got first for this card.

At the show one of the categories for cards was to make a card with supplied product. We were given the base cardstock, piece of navy, piece of dsp, the cream colour that had a lighter colour on the other side and the bike cutout. This is what I came up with which did win a prize.
Amazing all the variations and what people did with the products.
Thanks Elsa for the challenge.

I'm off to  a scrapbooking retreat today for the weekend. Our annual get together. So looking forward to getting away and crafting with a lovely group of ladies. good chance to catch up on my scrapbooking which gets a bit neglected because of the cardmaking.

Cupcake card

Well we had alovely day at the Methven show, weather was great and lots to see and do.
This card is another card that my daughter made and entered into the show. She received first place for it.
She was quite particular about what paper she wanted to use. This paper comes from the Kaleidoscope series.And she wanted the Bermuda Bay for its base.

I won several prizes with cards, scrapbooking, cooking, photos, knitting and x stitch. Being the 100th year celebration enteries for the show were well up on previous years.
I will show you some of the cards that I had made over the next few days.

Night Owl

This is a card that my 10 year old daughter made for the show. But we both had misread the section. it was to be a handmade card BUT the materials would be supplied. We couldn't find any other category to put this card in. Real shame. So will show the other cards that she made after the show.
I thought  she had done a good job. The photo doesn't show but the moon has actually been punched out of the black.

So I think we are all ready for the show tomorrow. Finished the harvest in time. Now hoping the weather will co-operate for the day.

50th anniversary

For the Methven A and P show tutors and instructors of card making have their very own catagory . This year we are to make anniversary cards. This card didn't quite make the grade for me. But I thought I would show it anyway. I think their are only two of us who enter that catagory .
This card uses some of the gold foil that carried over from the previous catalogue. The hearts were stamped with Hearts a Flutter stamp set.
