Stampavie Cards

Have you seen the gorgeous Stampavie stamps yet? I recently treated myself to Hoo Hoo There! The owls are so cute and they stamp beautifully. I will definitely be getting some more of these little beauties. These cards were lots of fun to make...I painted the stamped image with watercolours, used Spellbinder dies to cut the card stock and paper scraps for matting, then added some distress ink and alphabet stickers. So quick and easy and I think much nicer than most store bought cards. I hope you like them.

Don't you love holidays

Our family has just returned from a holiday on the Sunshine Coast. While there, we visited the fantastic Australia Zoo. What a great setup they have...the animals all have lovely big enclosures. We all had the best day! It is so worth a visit if you are up that way.

Just before we left I completed this layout of my father and his brothers taken around 1952. I am loving old photos at the moment and used some Crate Paper Lemongrass I had in my stash.

Today I had a another electricity blackout...four hours this time. It seems we have a power outage every other week - so today I used the time to scrap. I completed this layout of Mikala using the Cosmo Cricket Earth Love range of papers and embellishments. I also had some fun with inks and glimmermist.

Hope you enjoy the rest of the school holidays.
