I’m in love with a White Box & ‘So very grateful’ stamp set

I’m over the top excited about an online order I made a week or so ago… and it arrived today!!!!! But before I tell you about that I must update you on Archer.

Last week I told you about how my little Archer started Kindy and I had a few ugly tears. I recovered but my little man sure was sleepy when he wasn’t at Kindy. There was a LOT of this……..

IMG_5101

I have bad news to report, things took a turn for the worst this morning with my poor little fella screaming the Kindy down with a lot of “I want to go home with you MUMMY!!!” and “Don’t leave me!!!!” this continued for about 30mins before the Kindy teacher finally had to pry him off of me while hurrying me out the door. Kindy rang me a while later to tell me he was now incredibly happy and having a great time .*sigh*. Wonderful right?? But then why did I feel like a train wreck all day? I’m now bracing for tomorrow. Wish me luck.

On a great note however…. The white box arrived!!! What’s the white box?? So a bit of back story. As you can imagine I take a lot of photos of cards I make and I make a lot of the cards at night (as that’s when the boys have gone to bed) but I can’t take the photos until the morning and sometimes the light isn’t wonderful even then. So I bought………

Doesn’t look much at the moment but it will once I finally put it all together it looked like this….

But the really wonderful thing is that it lets me take photos like this….

What do you think?? Cool hey?

I’ve used a couple of new stamp sets for this card. The ‘So very grateful’ set from the Occasions Catalogue for the flowers which I had such a blast water colouring and the sentiment is from the Sale-A-Bration set called ‘You’re So Lovely’.

What’s Sale-A-Bration? It’s a gift with purchase sale that Stampin’ Up! has once a year that runs until March 31st. Every $90 of product you buy earns you a gift from the Sale-A-Bration  range of FREE products. I love FREE stuff.

It’s a great time to host a Stampin’ Up! party during Sale-A-Bration as everyone want’s to get their hands on FREE products email me if you’d like to get a group of friends together and make some fun Stampin’ Up! cards.

Flashback Friday

 

 

I’m blowing off the dust and cobwebs and re-visiting some of my ‘historical’ blog entries. Some of them are a tiny bit embarrassing and some timeless – you decide. 🙂

While some stamp sets and products may no longer be available –  the card layout and inspiration remain fun to revisit. Welcome to ‘Flashback Fridays’. 

Here’s a post from late last 2012:

Hi All,

Here is another of my designs for the Festive Friday Design Team. This week we had an inspirational photo to help us to create our cards. But for some reason I just can’t load that photo.!! Doh!!!! So you’ll have to scoot over to the Festive Friday blog to see what it looked like. 🙂 You can also see what the rest of the Design Team created and maybe join in the fun and submit a card of your own too!

For my card I’ve used my Greeting Card Kids stamp set from page 14 of the 2012/13 Annual Catalogue. It’s a really fun set to colour and has a nice vintage feel. I used chalks to colour directly on top of the news print designer series paper.

Another fun elements about this card is the speckled effect on the Midnight Muse blue card stock. I’ve used my Illuminate Glimmer Watermark stamp set and directly applied the upside-down pad to the card stock. I had already run the cardstock through the Northern Flurry embossing folder (I’m loving that folder right now). I’ve especially rubbing it over the snowfakes – so shimmery!!!!

A little bit of the Glass Stampin’ Glitter, some circles in(circle punches are sooooooo essential to your basic kit) all sponged with Versa Mark to give some depth.

Hope you like it!!

Happy Stamping
