Tatiana KETTO

I am not a fan of the colour red BUT look what I made!

I made this card with the person in mind and she loves purple and orange. I always use that colour combo for her so I thought it was time for a change. Orange is yet another colour I don't do very well. It might be hard to believe but I like Real Red and Elegant Eggplant colours together. As red is not a colour I normally like, I don't have any embellishments to match. I did find a couple of red brads that were in a mixed container and a ribbon slide that I got on sale a few months back. The heart charm is from Bizzy Bec's online store.

The stamped image is another from Stamping Bella. She's called Tatiana from the Ketto range.

Thanks for looking.

Sister's Birthday.

"Happy Birthday" to my "big" little sister Donna.

(You will never live that one down Don but I still love ya)

Donna celebrated her birthday this past weekend but as I will be seeing her this weekend, I will take her card home with me. (A September Birthday!) It's a shadow box card so it wouldn't post too well. I got this idea off SCS. (Did you notice the colour red in it?) My sister's favourite colour is chocolate and red. Can't wait to get home and babble over a cup of coffee with her face to face.

This was my first attempt at making one of these cards and it came together quite easily. Although I would love to find an envelope template to make for it. I've used my favourite SU Stamp Set (at the moment anyway) 'Friends 24-7'.

I have also attempted the faux linen technique again on the background. Hope you like it.

Mikaela's Birthday Card

This card is for my daughter Mikaela who is going to be a teenager in October. (Yes all the girls in my family are celebrating their birthdays in October!).
"Happy 13th Birthday Miki"
Her favourite colour is Jade. I've used the SU colours 'Taken with Teal' and 'So Saffron'. I've also used the So Saffron ribbon I received for free with my last order with Jackie. Yes, I spent over $100 (which isn't hard for me) to receive this one and the certainly celery ribbon pack. Well worth it I think.
The stamped image is from Stamping Bella. Her name is Missmatch from the Ketto range. Isn't she cute?

I'm heading to country Victoria this weekend to catch up with family and friends. I'll be gone for a whole 3 weeks!! I'm trying to get excited about the trip but when it's going to take me about 14 hours to get there with 3 kids in the back seat, I'm beginning to quaver!
Thanks for looking.

Birthday Girls

I loooove this card!!

This was my 2nd attempt at making a large square card and I really love it. I'm not sure whether it's because it's for my sweet,baby girl's 3rd Birthday or because it turned out a little 'shabby chic' looking which is a style I love but never do. Partially because I don't know how and I don't have a lot of the embellishments.

Part of this card was put together with Bec's card kits and my own stash of bits. They don't all co-ordinate but I still like the end result.
The image is one of the Sara Kay range. Yes another one borrowed from the beautiful Jackie.

This is the inside of the card.

This was my first attempt at putting a large square card together. I made this one bright as it's for another special girl's birthday who loves pink. This birthday is special as Abbey shares her birthday with ME!

I'm not sure about this card as I'm not really sure where everything is meant to go. (so much more space to fill!). What I do know is I love the colours. Pink and green are my favourite colour combo.

"Happy Birthday" to 2 special girls, Jorjia and Abbey.
If you have any hints for me on how to put these cards together, I would love to know. Thanks.

Teenager Card

Another teenager. Wow I'm starting to feel really old now. I've been there since the day Joshua was born and now he's going to be 13 this week. Where has the time gone?

I've used the SK8R Boy stamp again from Sugar Nellie. Yeah o.k I should find some different boy stamps but I like how this one turns out.

I've coloured this image again using my watercolour pencils and then sponged the edges. I embossed the letter J, sponged it all and used dimensionals to put it all together.

I keep saying how October is our busy birthday month but it looks like September is quite busy as well.

Thanks for stopping by..

Bright Card

Another image from Jackie (thanks Jack) but I'm not sure what this one is called, sorry. You might have to visit Jackie at her blog and ask her if you're interested.
This one is for our niece Olivia who is turning 10 at the end of the month. It was great to do some fun, bright colours. I've coloured the image with my watercolour pencils and then added glitter to her wings. I didn't have flowers to match these colours so I made my own torn flower with the scraps and added a glitter brad. The buttons are also from my own stash threaded with white ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by..

Ketto Birthday

As promised here is the card that took me all of my sick days to finish. It was driving me crazy seeing it sitting there on my craft desk and not being able to finish it. I couldn't sit up for too long and as you all know, when you're sick, so is your 'mojo'.

I have used one of the Ketto stamps which Vicki kindly let me stamp. (well I didn't stamp it as such, Jackie did for me. Thanks Jack.)

I'm not sure how this card actually got finished but I think it turned out fairly cute.

This card is for the cute little Jaimee who is turning 2 in the next few weeks.

I am making these cards in advance as October is a huge birthday month for me, so I need the head start.

Thanks for stopping by.

Layered Illusion

Look what I just made.
I haven't been able to stamp the last few days due to a cold but I just wanted to sink my teeth into something and actualy finish it. Thanks to the very talented Michelle I was able to create the 'Layered Illusion Floral' card. I didn't have the same stamps and inks as Michelle so I adjusted it to what I had. This is my first attempt, so now I know what I'm supposed to be doing I'm going to try it again. Why? Because it was FUN. I love creating just for the fun of it.
I have also just finished a 2 yr old birthday card but I will post it tomorrow. That card took me all weekend going back and forth looking at it, wondering what I was going to do with it. It started off well until I got sick. That's why I like the above card as it all came together easily and I didn't have to make it for a reason...just for FUN!

Anniversary Card

Congratulations to our beautiful friends Geoff and Jackie on their 20th Wedding Anniversary. This truly is an amazing achievement. We hope you've enjoyed your day in peace and quiet (no I haven't rang and interupted them today) and that you have a wonderful evening out for dinner.

I hope you enjoy your card. This was also a big achievement. It has taken me nearly all day to make and I still haven't used the original flower design that I tried to do. I will show Jackie my poor attempt at the other flower tomorrow so she can have a laugh.

Once again Congrats to the beautiful couple on your Anniversary. Mwah!!

Tag Pocket Album

2 posts in one day!! Who'd have thunk?

This is one of my surprise gifts but because Jackie has already seen it I thought I'd give you a quick look as well. Of course it's not finished and 'blinged' yet but it will be a very personal gift and I wouldn't be showing you all the details when it was finished anyway. I may just show you the front.

I found this creation by the very talented Patti. She has called it the 'Bella Rose Tag Pocket Album'. Go on over and take a look at Patti's blog. She has some fantastic projects. Thanks for sharing Patti. I have a couple more projects from Patti's blog that I cant' wait to get started. This Pocket Album comes together fairly quickly ( I like quick projects!) and Patti's instructions are
great to follow.

(Front view)

(Inside view. 6 pages)

(4 little tags that are inserted into to album)
I hope you all like it as much as I do. (I hope Jackie will like the finished project)

Father's Day Cards

I know, I know. It's been a long time between posts but I am currently doing a few little projects that are surprises for upcoming birthdays. October is an extremely busy birthday month in our family and it seems to be growing with more friends and new little additions. I will show these projects to you all but you'll have to wait until October. In the mean time it's Father's Day this weekend so here are my cards.

This card I made a little while ago with a friend of mine. (waving at ya Nik!) We've used SU Stamp sets 'Lovely as a Tree' & 'Best Yet'. We added some paper piercing, sponging, raised the verse with dimensionals and added some buttons from my stash. A very easy and simple card.

This card I made at Jackie's workshop a few weeks back. We got to play with the new Scallop oval punch and the new stamp set 'Oval All' from the new spring mini catalogue.

I have to make one more Father's Day Card as the Father of my 2 eldest children will be visiting them this weekend but sshhhhh, it's a secret surprise for them.

I hope all the Father's out there have a fantastic Father's day!
