Un-convention Secret Sister Swap

For those of us who didn’t make it to the Stampin’ Up! Convention in Australia.

We were only supposed to sent 1 card and a 3D item to the value of $10. So it was a wonderful surprise to receive a lovely box all the way from Perth Australia with some lovely items from Chantell Randall.

Aren’t they just gorgeous!!

The Rich Razzleberry / Pretty in Pink one is made with the leaves from the 2 step bird punch, flower stamp from Fifth Avenue Floral (one of my favourite Stampin’ Up Stamp Sets)

Gorgeous coasters

These delightful coasters are decorated with Tea Party Designer paper. The bulkier flower is made by layering 8 layers of scallop circles punched out of Tea party DSP, they are scrunched, layered alternating sides face up and joined together with a brad.

The other flower is made of layers of a flower from the stamp set “Playful Petals”.

CD Album Sticker Labels

I came across these label stickers for CD’s and thought that it would be fun to jazz up all those CD’s lying around the house. Put your Wedding photos, Christmas, Family or Holiday photos on appropriately decorated CD’s!!

The Impossible Box!

This delightful box was designed by Paula Dobson. It’s called the impossible box because the lid is not a separate item it is actually part of the box. I’ve decorated the boxes with the new “Fox and Friends” stamp set and “Pocket Silhouettes” stamp set.

Post it Note Holders

These lovely little books hold a post-it-note pad. The 3d flowers are made with the Stampin’ Up! heart punch, folded in 1/2, sponged with ink and layered. The wooden button was sponged with ink to match.  The other flower from the Playful Petals stamp set, was stamped in basic black and coloured with aqua painters and ink from Stampin’ Up! ink pads. These were fun to make.

Scrapbooking layout

Stampin up 244 Stampin up 243

This lovely layout uses Riding Hood Red, Pretty in Pink  and Old Olive Card stock. The stamp set is Baroque Motifs.

The delicate scallop boarder is made using the Stampin’ Up! slit punch.  Contact me if you want instructions for anything that interests you or to purchase any Stampin’ Up! products.

Is it a bird punch or a flower?

The new Stampin’ Up! bird punch is so versatile. I am so enjoying using this punch!!

The flowers on this lovely card were made using the birds wings as petals, and highlighted using a white gel pen.
