Playing catch-up!

It’s been a busy couple of weeks! As a result, I have not really had the time to sit and blog…..but I have been stamping!!!
Last weekend I had the pleasure of stamping and chatting with those who came to visit our Stampin’ Up! stand at the Sydney Paper Arts Festival.  Three days of sharing what I love to do with others, lots of laughs and more than a few espressos ;)…… what a great way to spend a long weekend!! It was lovely to catch up with my fellow demostrators too (I can’t really call it work when I get to hang out with some of my favourite people can I?) Thanks to all those who came and said “Hi” or introduced yourselves to us and I look forward to stamping with you again soon ;)!
Here’s a picture of some of the cards I demonstrated at the show, using the watercolouring technique with a blender pen and a Classic Stampin’ pad:
I’ve used the line-art image of the Dogwood flowers from Soft Summer (available in the Spring Mini Catalogue until the end of November). For the top card I squeezed my Pale Plum and Mellow Moss Classic ink pads and picked up the ink from the inside of the lid with a Blender Pen (you get three of these pens in a pack for $18.95- and they are double -ended!)
The one below is my little protest! In the catalogue the Wattle is coloured pink, which is obviously not botanically correct! So I used the two-step stamping technique with my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line up the solid image inside the outline and stamped the flower in Basic Brown and Summer Sun (a perfect Wattle yellow!). I then picked up some ink from the lid of a More Mustard inkpad with my Blender Pen and shaded in some of the wattle just to give it more depth of colour. Water-colouring with stamps is soooooo easy……the images really do all the hard work for you :). If you have any questions about how I made these cards…..please ask! Or feel free to leave a comment 🙂
The lovely Lin Mei, Linda and Annette on the last day of the show…….
The other “Big Gig” in my calendar this week was the Girls Night In on Wednesday!
I wish to say big THANK YOU to all who attended the night and helped out with drinks and nibbles and the papercrafting too! We had a ball and raised over $660 for the Cancer Council Girls Night In!!!!!
Here’s just one of the projects we created on the night in-between eating and chatting and winning heaps of prizes, all generously donated by Stampin’ Up!:
Pink decorations were contributed and arranged by my Co-Demonstrator for the evening Isobel Webb 😉 who did a great job creating  the perfect atmosphere for us :
I’ll finish this post with a quick reminder about this month’s Christmas Stamp-A-Stacks!
These are the two designs we will be making (5 of each for $20)and I have spots free for the Thursday Stamp-A-Stack on the 29th of October, 7.30pm, my place. Please call me on 4271 8121 or email for more information and to reserve your spot!
(The card behind is inspired by Cassandra King)
I’ll be back again very soon with some more stamping ideas 🙂

  1. Oh thanks Cass! I thought your take on them was awesome…….I just added some bling and “grunged” up the paper a bit, but left the layout the same……. a great use of two “non-Christmas” sets!

  2. So much to enjoy in this post! TFS all your news & latest projects. Your GNI looked like fun … congrats on the fantastic result!!! It would be interesting to add up all the funds raised at all the SU! GNI events … don’t you think??? And … most of it is thanks to SU!’s generosity!!! Hugs, Andrea xxx
