JAI47 - Rhonda Fawcett

Hello design team
I found these colours together a real big challenge but am happy with the result. My inspiration was my grey striped cat.
This cute kitty I designed using stampin' up dies and punches. I am teaching it at my next punch art class, so I hope others like it as much as I do.
If people want to CASE it please acknowledge me as the designer.
Cheers from Rhonda Fawcett

Here's my 2nd entry for the critter challenge.

The papers are Kaiser craft and the ribbon is from Spotlight (already ruffled)

Thanks so much for my top pick for the Christmas Challenge. It was very exciting to see my name amongst the winners.

Hi girls

My card for this weeks challenge uses the Every Moment Stamp set. I have inked it up in Saraha Sand and mounted it first on Crumb Cake and then on Sahara Sand.

I coloured with my markers and water colour pen, added a bit of kitchen string and an antique brad.

Hi Girls

I have had a lot of fun putting this advent calendar together.

The papers and calendar are all from Kaiser craft and I basically followed there instructions.

I have painted only the edges that you see and all the rest is covered in papers so that makes it a lot quicker to make.

Thanks - Kerry Deane.

Hello girls

I was thrilled to see my name up in lights as a top 5 pick last week. Thank you for selecting my entry.

This week I have made these little cuties for three of my little cuties. Tutorial is from Makeesha Byl and is very quick and easy peasy.

I have used the new brights pack of DSP - Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie with co-ordinating paper, markers and ribbons. The stamp set is Kimono Kids.

All I need now is to find the pencil!

Hello girls

This challenge was timely for me as I needed to get started on my grandaughters birthday card. She has a summer birthday so I thought these colours from the Sunny Days Simply Scrappin kit were perfect.

I have used the co-ordinating markers, Cute by the inch and Wonderful Favourites stamp sets. The tutorial for the fantasy box and bow is from the Helping Hudson Christmas bundle tutorial.

Put your sunnies on - it's very bright!


Congratulations on being a Top Pick, Kerry!

Lovely to be doing another challenge! Seeing as I am still building up my supply of gorgeous Stampin' Up! stuff, I have chosen to use only two of the Challenge colours this week - Blushing Bride & Pear Pizzazz card stock. I also had my first try with the Versamark pad (loving it!) and the butterflies were from the Beautiful wings embosslit die.

Keep up the fab challenges!

- Alison.

Hi There

This was something I created for one of my friends who lives over the other side of Australia who also has bipolar. I am overcoming PND myself and have started crafting recently which REALLY helps haha.

This little creation was holding two discs for my friend and I just wanted to do something to pretty them up for her. It took about 10 mins (its amazing what you can do when a light bulb goes off!).

I used the sweet slumber DSP, Best Yet stamp set, square scalloped punch,( brad, flower and ribbon from spotlight) .

Thanks so much.

Hi Girls

Here is my entry for Just Add ...Material.

I had been meaning to try making a pin cushion using the top note die ever since I saw it on Chic 'n Scratches web site ages ago and it was the first thing I thought of when I saw your challenge for the week.

JAI32 - Narelle Hoggard

Hi there,

I have two cards using material,

I just love these cards they could be for any age by using different colours or patterns. By using sticky strip on the back I have placed ribbon there to give the more formal look, or a pretty bow around the waist.

For the circle I have used the scallop circle form the big shot and cut out a wedge.

Cheers Narelle Hoggard
