RobVik #13

Hi card makers, this weekend I have made a RobVik challenge card - white on white. It bothers me that the embossing folders are a bit short for the size cards we make so I have covered the join with folded ribbon. I've just realised too that this is my first card without any stamping on it!!

Our Creative Corner - All the B's challenge, Crazy 4 Challenges C4C96


This afternoon I am posting this card to two challenges -http://ourcreativecorner6.blogspot.com/2011/07/all-bs.html  -using black, bling, buttons and bows   and  http://crazy4challenges.blogspot.com/2011/07/crazy-4challenges-c4c96.html  - a Joy fold construction card. The bottom photo is a better representation of the colours. Thanks for having a look and enjoy yourself this week.

Colour throw down #151

The colour throw down challenge was to use rainbow colours for you inspiration.  I created the rainbow using my Twinkling H2Os - I love the iridescent effect and the way the colours ran together. I'm always snapping photos of sunrises, sunsets and rainbows - every one of them is different and gone so quickly.

Mojo 200

Hi once again card makers, and a very big hooray to MojoMonday Challenge on their 200th design post. I've made a contemporary Aussie themed Christmas card and I'm quietly happy with the result....just might have to make a few more in different colours.

Mojo 199, RobVik #8

Hi fellow card makers, I'm early this week ...as hubby and I are off to Exmouth where he is playing golf for the weekend.... and I will be veging totally not even cooking meals!!
I really enjoyed this weeks Mojo and finally used the last of my green patterned card stock Vikki gave me for our challenge #8. It's a bit ...what...whimsical or something - first time I've added a die cut bird....I think he's cute. Have an enjoyable and creative weekend all, cya next week.

Mojo 198, Scrapbook Boutique challenge, RobVik #10


This photo is soooo sad, the colours are really much nicer - Purple, Lavender and White for the Scrapbook Boutique challenge - http://scrapbookboutiquenews.blogspot.com/ 
and also for this weeks Mojo 198. This week I have included some more microbeads and a flower trinket from my stash and I'm quite happy with my first card. My second card uses the Mojo layout too and also the colours Vikki picked for RobVik challenge #10 - Peach, Green and Blue - I painted the shell with my Twinkling H2O's and found a shell charm in my stash. Thanks for taking a peep.

Crazy4Challenges C4C94

A few weeks back I made a couple of these centre step cards, I love them and find them easy to construct - I modified the size to fit Aussie sizes and a C6 envelope and I can get two from an A4 sheet of card. I also found that the A5 size cuttlebug folders fit the front surface of the card. Thanks for having a peep and have a creative weekend.

Alcohol Inks


Here are my first attempts with alcohol inks - I swiped the ink on gloss card with a sponge and a tiny attempt with the blending solution on the brown card. This card is out of my comfort zone with the colours but I'm happy with the effect - I added a tiny line of brown and gold micro beads which I haven't used for years.
My turquoise and lime effort is a comfy floral. I was inspired by the cards the girls created for the challenge at http://casestudychallenge.blogspot.com/2011/06/case-study-challenge-45.html
Saturday I spent a lazy day colouring in pre-stamped Christmas designs and have added 3 more to my stack.

Mojo 197, RobVik # 8

So much for my walk this morning, came to my desk early this morning and there was my card in pieces just waiting for me to put it all together....so here it is. I like this weeks Mojo - simple layout. And this also incorporates the card Vikki gave me for our #8 RobVik challenge. It's the reverse side of my previous card (Sunday 19th) and so presents a totally different feel. I've added brown as my coordinating ribbon had browns spots and I'm pretty happy with the finished card. But stay tuned as I still have piece of that patterned card left :-) ........thanks for taking a look.
