It has been months since my last post. End of year caught up with me and this is one of the first times it a long time I have had the inspiration to stamp. What way to start again than to start with the colour throwdown. I downloaded on of the free digi images and printed it on to very vanilla. I feel inspired now to get back to my stamping and to have that little bit of me time. Which has been difficult lately as the kids are on 7 weeks holidays and it pretty much been raining the whole time. We live in Australia - Queensland so we are not use to the rain this time of year we are use to heat (lots of it ) and days at the beach. Hope you enjoy. Sorry rambling on about everything expect the card

Colour Throwdown 107

What beautiful spring colours for this challenge. New stampin up cat in Australia here, so Of course they are having a clearance sale. The stamp I used was Bloomin with beauty. Liked this set for quite some time. The paper was Raspberry Tart again from Stampin up.. Finally got to use the stamping on ribbon technique. Use the nesstabilities for the circles. I love how this card all came together. Enjoy

Colour Throwdown 104

Missed a couple of weeks. Feeling very unmotivated until I thought I would have a quick look in my favourite craft shop. I found this gorgeous stamp from Penny Black. And the lady at the store said it would be great used with copic markers, I told her I already had some then she showed me the copic markers card to use. That paper brings out the copics to another level. The card stock is all from stampin up and the paper is from Cosmic cricket the de lovely. Thanks for looking. Now to find some motivation with the ironing.

Colour Throwdown 100

I am very happy to be able to participate in this challenge. This embossing folder is from stampin up and have never used in so I embossed in onto to regal rose cardstock and sponged regal rose onto it. The background stamp is from hero arts and I just clear embossed the background. To finish it off and I used the blue brads form American Crafts and tied it all off the red ribbon. Good Luck to everyone partcipating in this challenge this week. Enjoy

Colour Throwdown

Wow it has been ages. It's funny how quickly time can rush by and you dont know why. It been weeks since I made a card so it was lovely to come back to my desk and enjoy. The stamp set is from hero arts. And all the cardstock is from Stampin up. My daughters did not agree with me about the frame around the little boy and girl. However I said it is my card so I can do whatever I want :)

Thanks for stopping by. Here ar ecolours if you want to give it a try

Colour Throwdown

The colours for the throwdown

Quick post four day long weekend here for Easter. Never use yellow but I thought this stamp set from hero arts will go perfectly. And because I never use yellow did find a little stash of paper from K and K company. Thanks for looking.
