Owl Page n Card

The challenge from Kaszazz was to make up something using the newer Australiana stamps. I generally find these stamps a bit of a challenge, but the owl worked in this case. I used brown baz for the base paired with oatmeal and ivory in parts. The green is Parakeet baz. Most of it you can probably work out. I stamped the fern and swirl in frost white ink. The tiny butterfly is from the calendar icons stamp - it has some really cute little stamps, great for accents or highlights. I used gold smooch on the letters and added some punched daisies on the words too. I used my favourite tiny daisy punch here as well. The card is done in much the same way but with the branch stamp from the treasured memories set. With the owl, they were coloured in using the lyra crayons and the beak was smooched!

Mothers' Day Cards..

Here is a sample of some Mothers' Day cards that I came up with for a recent workshop. We also included Monica's card that you will have seen on the previous post. For these cards I used CB folders, nestabilities, punches, distress inks, blending tools and acrylic paints. There is also the touches of chalks, ancient page ink and ice stickles. It was a fun evening of creations where everyone chose what they wanted to do and adapted ideas to suit them. A creative and fun night with great people.

My next workshop coming up is on Thursday 20th/ Friday 21st May. I'm doing the "Mini Mister perfect pearls " layout. It is number 2H525 in the workshop flyer that can be found at: , click on the 3 customer events , choose the 2H workshops and there you'll find this workshop in the scrapbooking workshops. Sorry, I did try to put up a pic, but my brain is moving a little too slowly!! I'll see what I can do over the next day or so.

Hope you have a great Mothers' Day, and get totally spoiled and pampered.

Monica's card...

Monica, a talented Kaszazz consultant and guest designer of my blog made this card. I just love it!! She used white card, Java bazzill and some ribbon from her stash. She used one of the latest CB folders and then rubbed white ink over it to highlight all the embossed bits. She punched and inked the butterflies, and then highlighted them with some sticky bling flourish. She topped it off with some ribbon along the bottom. The words are from our - mini messages stamp. This range of stamps are awesome- they are so handy for every occasion.
It's a great card - thanks for featuring Monica!
