Hot Pink Circle Circus

30 June, 2010

A little hot pink never hurt anyone! Concentrating on colours that are retiring soon, here is a really simple card that can be replicated with any colour! I love the Circle Circus stamp set, it’s just so versatile. I dyed the flower with my sponge dauber and ink pad and added some dazzling diamonds before adding the brad and pearl.

Don’t forget to order your favourite colours now before they run out. Once they run out, they’re GONE!

Inspired Swaps from Convention

11 June, 2010

I received so many lovely swaps from convention. I love Convention, it’s one of those perks for being a demonstrator. Hundreds and hundreds of lovely demos come together to share our love of stamping. I love being able to meet so many people in person after cruising around their blog or reading their comments from our demonstrator forum, Stampin’ Connection and other wonderful forums such as ESAD-SU. I love the frenzy of swapping and seeing all the creative designs people have. It’s fantastic that I can come back each year and see all those lovely faces and watch those special demonstrators who have worked really hard go up on stage and receive their award. The awards night is always a special event.

My neice saw my swaps and wanted some of them, so I said that I would make her up a kit to make her own.

Here’s a pram card that she spotted and wanted to know how to make it. I’ve seen this pram all over the blogs and finally had a chance to make one after receiving a similar one as a swap.


The owl card, again my little neice spotted this one and wanted it, so I made a similar one again, I changed the colours to more girly colours.

And then this gorgeous Vintage Vogue card we made at my upline’s team meeting. Trish Hollis designed this card as her Convention swap and was kind enough to provide the make and take for the team meeting night.

Convention Swaps

7 June, 2010

Finally located my swaps that I made – one of them was hidden in one of my new Convention bags. I didn’t have much time to make them, with all the study I had, so you could imagine the last few nights before convention were pretty late. I finally finished them on the flight over to Sydney. Phew!

I made 32 of this one.


and then I changed the design to make 16 of the below card.  I love the punches and big shot – makes my life so much easier

Until next time, inky smiles!
