Retiring Sets Card Day

Hi
Yesterday I held a stamping day at my place using retired stamp sets. I wanted to use them one last time before they are no longer available. It was hard to choose just enough stamps for 8 cards but I did and here are a couple of the cards I made for the ladies to make. This one below I made using the step card idea. My niece asked me to use Crab & co so this is what I came up with. It was a little too time consuming though and made the day go late but everyone loved it anyway. I also used Itty Bitty Backgrounds which I am really sad to see go.


This card I have used Aida Cloth for the background and Bodacious Bouquet . The ribbon is from District Ribbon originals and the buttons are soft subtles.
I have a few more cards to show you later. I don't have a photo program on my computer at the moment so I don't have me watermark but all the products are from Stampin' Up!

Bloom Away

Here is a wonderful new Australian stamp set that will be in the new Stampin Up catalogue. We were given a chance to purchase some sneak peak stamp sets so here are 3 cards I made using this set. I love it of course as I get to paint. I cant wait to actually see the new Catalogue myself and see what other wonderful sets we will have this year. In these cards I have used one of the 2009 In Colours, Red Riding Hood. Its a nice red for these stamps. I have also used Always artichoke and Kraft. You too can enjoy using these stamp sets very soon. I have a launch of the new Idea Book and Catalogue at my place on Saturday 4th April where you can get to see new sets and also make a card yourself to take home. I am hoping to have lots of new card samples to share with you. Let me know if you would like to come along. I am also holding a second session on Monday 6th at 7.30 pm. As soon as I can get some more samples made I will give you some more sneak peaks. I hope you are having a nice weekend.

New cards to show you..... at last

I hope I dont shock you by actually posting twice in one day but I thought I would show you these 2 cards I made last week. The one above is made using my new stamp set that I was given for my birthday. It is a Verve stamp set and it has some lovely stamps in it but I have used only the one. I cased this card from the verve site and changed the DP.
Below is a cased card using my friends SU set called Pocket silhouettes. I love this set and hope we get it in the new Catalogue. The colours I've used are white, Choc chip and Kraft.
Now I can go to bed feeling bettter about my blogging efforts. I blame the lack of posts on my poor memory.... well that is my excuse...

Thank you to you all for thinking of me and taking the time to hand make these cards.
