Ronald McDonald House stamp set

I loved the last lot of classes for many reasons...
I love the group of ladies that come and make me laugh and sometimes we have been known to get very distracted over something new and exciting.
I love teaching techniques that look quite hard to master but are really very easy, once you know how. I also love to know that I am making a difference in people's lives.  I was thanked by one of the mothers at Ronald McDonald House last week and told, that for 2 hours she had relaxed and not thought about her babies. That comment made my day, this is what it is all about.

This lady and also my classes of ladies at home in my studio made these 3 lovely cards. The stamp set that we used is this years RMHC stamp set. Stampin' Up! donate $3.00 to Ronald McDonald Charities for every one of these stamp sets that is purchased.

We stamped all the images with Archival Black and then using an Aqua painter we painted in the Strawberries with Real Red and Pear Pizzazz. The circles were punched out with the 2" circle punch and the new Starburst Punch.

 The sentiment on this card was taken from last years RMHC stamp set, Sprinkles of Life. Love spreading the love!!

This one had a bit of fussy cutting of the leaf that the bug was sitting on. How cute is this card?

Charity Christmas Card Workshop

Each year since 2008 the annual ‘Paper Angels’ Christmas Card Workshop takes place. These workshops raise funds to purchase and supply Footprint Cards to the Mater Mother's Brisbane Hospital Bereavement Programe and other hospitals as far up as the Sunshine Coast and down to the Gold Coast.
Sadly these cards are created so that the parents of babies that do not survive may take home a precious record of their child's footprint. Whilst a footprint record may seem like a small gesture, it is a meaningful record that can be shared, as grieving parents, grandparents and other family members come to terms with their loss.

If you would like to take part in one of these events, please email me and let me know which one is the best option for you to attend.

We have the men covered...

It is so hard sometime not to put bling and ribbons on everything, however we managed to restrain ourselves and create three lovely, simple male cards. Although I recon I'd be happy to receive any of them as well.

Each card we used Crumb Cake ink to create our background. The edge of each card was masked to allow for a clean border and then we chose the stamps to use.

This card we used the new Tree rings stamp set, then drew around the edge to form a fancy border. The sentiment is one of our new punches and the Crumb Cake card was punched out using our new Starburst punch. This punch is going to be one of my favourites, I think.

 This next card we used a retired stamp set called Nailed It. As you can see we used the same sentiment and punch. Once again framing it with the scribbly lines.

I'm not sure which card is my favourite, but this one we used my good old faithful background stamp called Hardwood. This is such a popular stamp set and I love it.

Such a lovely morning with some lovely ladies. If you want to join in the fun of a class or just to purchase any of these stamps and punches, please email me.

All Christmas cards today

We all made Christmas cards in our Wednesday class using the new Embossing Paste.

 This card we used the embossing paste and then spritzed in Wild Wasabi. I added about 10 drops of Wild Wasabi ink refill to the spritzer and then filled with Rubbing Alcohol.

You can't see very well with this one, but it truly sparkles. We used the embossing paste and then sprinkled with our fine glitter Dazzling Diamonds. The tree was a piece of left over Pear Pizzazz left over from the week before. We worked it over with Wink of stella.

 Then this lovely one we used the paste again and then sprinkled with Copper Embossing powder and then heat embossed.

Note: Make sure if you do this technique that you use the Embossing Buddy first, then use the paste.

They all looked so different but all basically the same design. By the way if you didn't want to use the Embossing Paste this would look just as stunning suing the stars and sponging or spritzing.

If you would like to purchase the Embossing Paste and have a play email me with your order of go to my Online store and get it sent straight to your door.

12 cards in 2 hours Easy, Peasy

Our Christmas card Stamp a Stack really did only take 2 hours to make these 12 cards. We made 4 cards of 3 designs. Everyone was amazed, as it has been known that our 3 cards take more time than that.

I think it was the simplicity of these cards. I used many of my old favourite stamp sets and designer series paper from a few catalogues back.

Merry and Bright zena kennedy independent stampin up demonstrator

 Look at the new Starburst behind the 2" circle. I think I am going to use this Starburst punch quite a bit. The sentiment is from a favourite retired stamp set Tin of Tags.

The last card is the only one we used all new products. The Carols of Christmas is an early release from the Holiday Catalogue.

One hundred minus one

Yesterday I went to Bluecare to take my usual card class with the residents. I have been volunteering there for over 4 years and love the people that attend my classes.                    Of course there are a few teacher's pets. Oz is one of these special people. He has been coming from the very first day and has improved in his card making skills over the years. 
Because of my husbands health, I had missed an entire month and Oz's birthday. So yesterday in class he told me he had received lots of cards for his  "One hundred minus one" birthday. Isn't that just the cutest way of saying you are 99.

Here is a picture of Oz and I, taken yesterday. He wanted me to show everyone that even a one hundred minus one person can make cards.
