Triangle

 

Again, this card began with a Gray Granite base and a couple of pieces of DSP from In Good Taste. It was an attempt to create a masculine card for an adult son.

There is a subtle reference to the fact that he is a traceur (someone who practises parkour) with bricks & walls, but it might have been a bit obscure! LOL!

Gray Granite





In week 21, Colour Creations are showcasing Gray Granite. Another wonderful neutral, in warmer grey tones. There are bound to be some inspiring projects shared in this week's blog hop.The participants in Colour Creations are all Stampin' Up! Australian demonstrators and members of Art With Heart.



Gray Granite was my card base choice, layered with another piece of card textured with Timeworn Type Embossing Folder. This is from the Harvest Meadow Suite in the mini Catalogue (P54-56)ending January 3rd.


The bricks from that wonderful DSP, In Good Taste, seemed like a natural choice for the backdrop for these potted plants.


A card suitable for many reasons, and for a man or woman I'd say.

I'm sure Claire Daly's card will be delightful, let's hop on over and check it out together.

Craftalongathon With Me

 One of the biggest benefits of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is the community we belong too. It is welcoming, inclusive and sharing and we are all encouraged to show these qualities too. On Saturday, Stampin' Up! South Pacific (Australia & New Zealand) held an afternoon of crafting on Facebook for us.


The last workshop for the afternoon was a one-sheet-wonder using one 6" by 6" piece of DSP. I wasn't sure if I would do this one, so only prepped at the very last minute, but it was quite simple to cut, since there are only 4 cards.

This paper from Harvest Meadow DSP is actually 12" by 12" sheets but that is easily sorted. I love this soft Misty Moonlight piece, like chambray denim.

To complete these cards I used a variety of stamps, dies and punches and you will see them all at the end of the post. If you feel you need to add any of these supplies to your craft supplies, you can shop in my online shop any time of the day or night.


Unfortunately I've  embellished with some gorgeous iridescent pearls not realising that they have been retired. Blue adhesive-backed gems would be a good substitute if you were trying to achieve a similar look.


This will be my November class, and we can do 'all occasion' or 'Christmas', whatever your preference.  Four cards for $25, made over 2 ½ hours. To keep the groups smaller and to comply with government regulations, get in touch via 0417 500 681 to book a date for you and a friend or 3. Classes are held in my home studio.
