Stamp sets used were Creative Elements and Elements of Style.
In the second photo I was trying to show how I had layered the flower, paper tolle style, if you look closely you can see the layers.
Sorry about the dull background - very overcast and stormy here today. Also I have to say the carpet on the cat scratching post does not complement my card but the post is the ideal height for taking photos of cards!!!!! Plus it gets the best light!

You could jazz it up a bit more if you wanted with some bling but for Christmas cards in a hurry this one is a good one.
Card used is Real Red, Garden Green and Whisper White.
Inks - Real Red, Garden Green, Soft Suede and Pacific Point.
Roller wheel - Sandy Speckles
Stamps- Jolly Bingo Bits, Four the Holidays
Hope I've given you some ideas! See you again soon!

The card has been roller wheeled using the Soft Holly wheel. Bit hard to see on the red card methinks I need to reink that cartridge!
The Christmas tree stamp comes from the set Pennant Parade, page 37 of the Australian IB&C. One of those great stamp sets that you can use for umpteen different occasions.
Thanks for stopping by!

I used the marker to rubber technique to ink up the butterflies in Early Espresso and Old Olive. The edges of the Very Vanilla card I roughed up using my fingernail to give some texture. It was then matted onto Old Olive card and Early Espresso DSP from the Designer Pads. The Early Espresso folded card was decorated using the roller wheel Sandy Speckles and Early Espresso ink. The punched sentiment is done using the Modern Label punch and it is all finished off with a couple of Vintage Trinkets brads.
A good quick classical layout for when you need a card in a hurry!

I think I'm going to have to do quite a few more of these flowers as they are fun to do and look so effective!
Thanks for looking!

My downline Simone Bartrum gave me a version of the Baja Breeze box at Paperific. I redid one for the workshop in Baja Breeze and the other version is in the new In Colour Wisteria Wonder. I DO like this new colour!
The Baja Breeze box is stamped in Night of Navy ink using the stamp set Hello Friend and the Wisteria Wonder box is stamped using Elegant Eggplant ink and the stamp set Creative Elements.
With a touch of bling and the satin Whisper White ribbon these little boxes were a big hit at the workshop!
Thanks Simone for the inspiration!

1. New In Colour card. This colour is Calypso Coral, doesn't it look good teamed up with Poppy Parade! One of the great aspects of the new IB&C is that the previous years In Colours continue on for another 12 months which means having fun finding lots of new colour combinations!
2.Seam binding ribbon - This one is Pear Pizzazz. It is so soft and easily bunches up for lovely soft ruffles on your projects. There are seven gorgeous new colours in the range and I'm thinking I might just have to get them all!
3. Glimmer Brads - You can never have too many options for bling! These brads come four different colour family ranges so all up that is 20 colours of glimmer brads!
4.Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch. These punches are so clever! You can punch 3 different related shapes from the one punch. I've used two of the punched images here to create my flower. These are great value at $44.95 to get three shapes, imagine how much it would cost to buy all three separately.
Also Stampin'Up! have a great new corner rounder punch. It did get updated last catalogue but I've just updated mine and this works a treat! My old one used to chew the corners at times but this one does a lovely job and no raggy bits!
Other items used in this card are - Whisper White card, Awash with Flowers and You're a Gem stamp sets, Pear Pizzazz and Poppy Parade inks, paper piercer and matt pack.
If you haven't got your copy of the new catalogue you can email me and I will arrange an order of one for you. Otherwise you can view it online here
Thanks for looking! See you later!

I've finally had a chance to play with this cute fun set we received free from Stampin'Up! when we attended Australian Convention earlier this year. The set is designed to co-ordinate with Stampin'Up! Designer buttons.
There are some really fun images in this set. The little piggie one is so cute when you add his button nose!
The sentiments come from a new set in the 2012 catalogue, Friendly Phrases. the punch is Decorative Label. I love the effect created when you cut one in half and layer it behind a whole one. Just remember to cut off the little side points so as they don't stick out from underneath!
I've had time to stamp lately so will be able to show off some more new creations over the coming days so be sure to drop by again soon!
