The other day I was making a birthday card. As I was making it I someone asked me who it was for and when I told them who it was for they were quiet surprised and advised that you couldn't tell the person it would be for just looking at the card. This got me thinking of making a little comp of this. (I sort of stole the idea from Marelle Taylor) So I have a few gifts up for grabs for the first person/people who correctly guess the following questions... This is open to demonstrators and customers!
Based on the card below comment and tell me
a. The sex of the person I am giving it to (Male of Female)
b. The age of the person. I will give it to the closest if no one gets it within a week.
c. The way in which this person is known to me ie. Related (if so how - Brother, Mother, Uncle, Cousin, etc) Close Friend, Work Colleague, Stampin Up! Friend, Netball Team Mate, Aquintance, Youth Group Friend, etc.
Here is the card in which you have to answer these questions about...

Behind the First Picture there is a pullout for some journalling which I haven't written on yet as I want to make sure I put something special on there that really tells the story of the photo's and I think my boyfriend should help with that.
I used flowers from the pretties kit which I coloured in with real red ink and a sponge Dauber. They are so nice and the first time I've used them! I think I'll be using them again!
Stamp Sets: Season of Joy, Many Merry Messages, Big Deal Alphabet

During the week we had another challenge night with the demonstrator group that I am apart of, The Inklings. Challenges were set by the lovely Kylie Swain and were all very appropriatly Christmas Themed. I haven't been able to have the chance to complete them all as yet but I have done Challenge 1 which was to make a pocket card but of course make it Christmas themed! These were very quick and easy to make. It was just the decorating that I took more time. Here's what I came up with...
The Mellow moss insert at the back pulls out so you could write a nice message on it or have something hidden in it such as a gift card/voucher. They are great little christmas gifts to give out and the dimensions can easily be changed to suit what you want to make. Below is a close up of the pull out tab and ribbon. I set an jumbo eyelet and then placed a rhinestone brad in the middle. Looks really cute and blings it up a little too!
Stamps: Season of Joy, Baroque Motifs
Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Mellow Moss, Purely Pomegrante
Ink: Mellow Moss, Purely Pomegrante
Accessories: Mellow Moss Grosgrain Ribbon, Corner Rounder Punch, Ice Rhinestone Brads, Jumbo Eyelets, Crop-a-dile, Sponge Daubers, Round Tab Punch
You can make these up to suit any occasion! I will try and get to the other challenges soon!
Thanks for looking!
Happy Sunday :)

It's been lovely having some time off work the last week it has meant I've been able to get HEAPS of craft stuff done! Today I have been so busy creating I only just noticed that it's nearly 4pm and I'm still in my pj's! Pure Bliss if I do say so myself!
The projects I have to share were made using the colours from Kristina Werner's lastest Colour Challenge! I saw the colours and immediatly thought ok these are my type of colours! I'm pretty sure I've used the combo a few times in the past. I had so much fun creating that I ended up making 3 cards!
Here are the colours... Ballet Blue, Certainly Celery, So Saffron and Ruby Red... Mmmm How nice!!
Here is what I did with the colours. For my first card I started using the Big Bold Birthday Stamp Set (On sale for 20% this month only). And got 3/4 of the way through and decided to change it up a bit and use the cute giraffe from the Wild About You set! I'm so happy I did as I love the outcome!
Stamp Set: Big Bold Birthday, Wild About You
Cardstock: Ballet Blue, So Saffron, Ruby Red, Certainly Celery Prints DSP
Ink: So Saffron, Ruby Red Marker
Accessories: Ballet Blue and Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon
I then had this Cup Cake that I had already worked on and didn't use so I made up a little 3x3" Love Note Card and adhered it to this. How cute does it look??
You can't tell but the Ballet Blue top of the card is embossed in top boss glitter embossing powder. Here's a close up hopefully you can see it now!!
Stamp Set: Big Bold Birthday
Ink: Balllet Blue, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Versamark
Cardstock: Whisper White, Ruby Red, So Saffron
Accessories: Certainly Celery and So Saffron Brads, Glitter Embossing Powder, Certainly Celery Ribbon
Finally I decided these colours could be used for a christmas card. I pulled out my Spotlight product for this month, The beautiful Season of Joy set and played with that. I wish I owned all the coloured markers as it would have made it a little easier but I am so happy with the outcome! How sweet is this card?? It would make a great Stamp a Stack cos it was really quick and easy!
Stamp Set: Season of Joy
Cardstock: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Ruby Red
Ink: Certainly Celery, Ruby Red, Ballet Blue, So Saffron
Accessories: 3/4" circle, Wide Grosgrain Ribbon, So Saffron Brad
