Let it snow!

I have been like a card machine yesterday, making about 20 cards, and this is one of the cards. My friend Paula invited me to the Lower Hutt Christmas market, and we hope to sell some SU crafts that we have made. The stamp I used is a retired SU, but I couldn't resist using it because of the detail and coloring involved. I am sure, that whoever this card goes to will be very pleased.
Paper: Ski slope DSP, Riding hood red, baja breeze
Ink: SU markers, choco chip stamp pad
Stamp: retired SU stamp, snow swirled (sentiment)

Triangle Treat box

This triangle treat box was one of the storage ideas we made at the class. I experimented with daubing pastels on embossed image, central panel (was like applying make-up), and matched the embossed background with soft summer image. I complimented the paisley background with the paisley design from the DSP Raspberry Tart. I saw this box from Paula Ponders blog, but changed the measurements.
Stamp set: Soft sumer, curly stamp
Accessories: scallop edge, curly label punch, dimensionals, 1/4 grossgrain ribbon, small cellobag, pastels

Gift bag for a Friend

One of the things I like about SU is that I learn from ideas of other people, I saw a similar bag from Tracey's blog, but changed it a bit to make it my own. I used the walk in the park DSP, which will be retiring this end of November. To close the lid, you can use a thinner twine or elastic string for better effect. So, if you find this DSP or this gift bag, awesome, email me to book for a class or order the gorgeous paper before it retires this end of the month.

Paper: pretty in pink, walk in the park DSP, baja breeze
Stamps: oval all
Accessories: bling from prettiest kit, crop a dile, oval and oval scallop punch, piercing tool, large eyelets, and bashful blue 1/4 grossgrain ribbon

A Boho Thanks

I have made this card for a co-teacher of mine who gave me some materials for my research a few weeks ago. I forgot to post this, as this is the first time I have used this set. I will try to use it for some of my Christmas cards, as I plan to layer the circles so I could use our lovely punches.

Stamp set: Boho Backgrounds

Cardstock: whisper white on chocolate chip, circles are pacific point, baja breeze, and kraft.

Accessories: circle punches, and markers
