Morning Cup

Morning all...

As we share all things crafty, my other half is heading to the dentist to get a tooth pulled... no guess where I would rather be.. mmm... lets see.. dentist V's craft room.... Yay, craft room is my winner!!!! I am physically feeling quite ill for him... poor baby..

Anyway I made a quick trip to good ole' Spotlight for ribbon to finish these 'tea-rific' cards. They were made using the fabulous Stampin' Up! Morning Cup Stamp Set. This set offers heaps of inspirational card making ideas.. topped with some glossy accents I thought they looked quite cute. The coffee rings were done by rubbing the ink pad on one of my perspex blocks, lightly squirted water using a mini mister, and stamped with a tea cup and voila... instant coffee rings... the little droplets were done using one of the French Foliage Stamps.

I would simply die if these were on one of my tables though.. My boys think I am obsessive compulsive when it comes to using coasters. If they want to rattle my cage, they would wait till I am watching and pretend to put a glass or cup on our new coffee table... then they wait for the onslaught! Typical males!!!!





Well have to wrap it up now as I need to pick up my son. Till next time..

Enjoy your cuppa..

Totally Tool


Hi my Friends,
I had a wonderful day today roaming Unley Rd with my gorgeous Sister Rob.... sooooo love quality sister time... anyway we visited all the fabulous shops.. had coffee and visited the lovely Kylie from Kaisercraft... and simply could NOT resist buying some stamp sets. All in all, a great day was had by all... except for my other half who was home nursing a toothache (dentist trip tomorrow!!!) I am safe to say (he never reads my blogs..) it was a 'man' toothache.. the worst toothache EVER!!!! If you happen to read this honey, only joking... hee hee... I love you xxx

Anyway, back to business... and speaking of men.. this card was made using Stampin' Up's Totally Tool Stamp Set. Awesome stamp set for the handy men in your lives.. stay tuned for the rest of 'The Tools'..
To the lovely ladies at Aldinga... hope you are all having a ball!!! This card wood... err... would suit any of your men..


Well, till next time,
Happy Crafting!!!

Butterfly Album


Hi Fellow Crafties...

I wanted to share my 'homework'.... I am fortunate enough to work in a craft shop (Riot Art & Craft) and every couple of weeks we are set a challenge... this weeks is anything 'Butterflys'. We are only able to use stock that we sell in store... mmm... its such a chore... not!!!  Anyway, we sell cute little chipboard albums and just had a new range of scrapbook pads. Perfect timing for the challenge. I used some of my favourite family pics... including my 'furies' Max (dog) & Kiara (princess kitty)...













Well, that's just a glimpse of my wonderful family... I'm extremely blessed.

I might have to buy another chipboard album... it was so much fun to do. The next version will be a completely blinged, embossed, stamped and bejewelled version... one where I get to play with all my toys at home...

Have to go to work now...

Enjoy your day

The Tea Box


Howdie Ho Fellow Crafties...

One last post for the night...

This little box was made using the leftover bits... as you all can see... didn't quite get to doing cards...
Anyway, just wanted to share 'The Tea Box' before I hunt and gather more food for my son... gotta love a 14 year old that is literally a bottomless pit!! The words 'I'm hungry' constantly ring...


Till next time,

Tea For Two

Hi my Friends...

...back again... the cats been fed... the boys have been fed... and all is good in the world... & I've been busy!!!
The first stamp set off the ranks is the new Stampin' Up!  'Tea Shoppe' stamp set, as featured in the new mini Autumn Winter catalogue.. sooo much more still to come...

Anyway, I got a bit excited when I saw this tutorial... had to give it a go before any cards were attempted. If this takes your fancy check out the link for instructions..

http://runningwscissorsstamper.blogspot.com.au/2012/01/tea-bag-dispenser-project-details.html



If you have a mother who loves drinking tea, who has everything... not sure what to get her for Mothers Day.. this is the most awesome pressie... filled with her favourite tea. Give it a go!! A bit of advice when cutting this little baby out... measure twice, check again, & again... then cut.. Think I was having a blonde moment when I was cutting the box out... lets put it this way... 3rd time lucky...




So, stay tuned my friends, more Tea for Two coming soon... speaking of tea... I can hear the kettle calling...

Till next time,
Luv Deb x

Love Sent Blossom


Hi Fellow Crafties,

How awesome is it when you get new Stampin' Up! supplies!!!!! I want to try them all... NOW!!! ...but the hardest decision... which one first??? I guess with Mothers Day just around the corner, the 'Boys' cards will just have to wait... for a bit.


This is the first in the Mothers Day line up... if you haven't used the build a blossom stamp set & matching punch... get on to it. Very cool indeed!!!



Well, have to take a break for a while from my Mothers Day Mission... the cat is impatiently waiting for more food... Ive just fed her a whiting fillet as I have run out of bickies for her... fat guts is still hungry so I'm off to the shops....

Will chat again soon... hopefully with more things to share...

Enjoy your day

Triple Treat Flower


Hey Fellow Crafties,

Well all I can say is there is never enough hours in the day to do the thing you would love to do... so many cards to make... sooooo little time!!!
Gotta say I LOVE this stamp... its so versatile.... this little baby is not going back in the stamp drawer just yet!! Its extra cool when used with my all time favourite Stampin' Up! colour Rich Razzleberry.
Any excuse to drag it out.


You may possibly hear from me again today... tea is cooked... washing done... mmmm... still have bathroom to clean... errr. lets see... big dilemma... cleaning bathroom V's quality time in the craft room... mmmm... tough decision!!!

Anyway... create away, be inspired!!!

Ornate Blossom


Hi all...

Hands up to those who have eaten waaayyyy too much chocolate... mmmm... well that's what Easter is all about... don't feel guilty... enjoy!!!
Anyway, I sat down last night pondering what to make... this is what I came up with...
I chose the paper first as I loved the colour combo and quite randomly found a couple of stamps I haven't had a chance to play with yet and made 2 very simple cards... just needed a bit of mindless crafting..




Well, back to work tomorrow... hopefully will be back soon with more ramblings and creating....

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter...
Luv Deb x
