Here I started with the 5x5 On Board Art Journal, Covered it with the gorgeous Petals and Paisleys designer series double sided papers, added some die cut stickers from the Little Reminders Accents & Elements tin and added my monogram (On Board Simon Lower) which I also covered with the Petals & Paisleys Paper. I used the Tab Punch to make tabs for the inside (they are still blank because I'm not sure what I'm using the book for yet!), made the little paper clip and added lots of ribbons to finish (a great reason to join my ribbon club too!).

This last pic shows the matching bag-a-lope.
Cant wait to make my next criss cross card! So what do you think of this one?
Monday, October 15, 2007
I was worried Michael might not like the card but I talked to him tonight and he thought it was good! Phew! He also liked the one I stamped on the envelope that Breanna had "coloured in" for him!!
My dear friend (and new downline!) Helene also had her Birthday today - cant wait to show you her card but I have to wait till she gets it first - don't want to spoil the surprise!

Stamp sets are Scribble This and Simple Sayings II. Cardstock colours are YoYo Yellow, Pixie Pink & Confetti White. Ink is Stazon and Basic Black, water coloured with Watercolour Wonder Crayons and Aqua Painter, white gel pen for highlights on the background swirls.
Tomorrow I'll post the first of many Christmas Cards I've made lately and some of the projects from WCMD - which went really well - albeit over time! We had 13 ladies attend who all had a great time and loved the cards they made.

The colours for this one are Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive and Lavender Lace. The tulips are from Both Ways Blossoms, the background is French script and the greeting is from Greetings Galore. Blossoms stamped with Stazon and coloured with Watercolour Wonder Crayons. The ribbon is pink organdy.
Must go - lots of last minute preparations to do for our WCMD event tomorrow!! I will be posting more photos very soon though!
This is the Level 2 Hostess stamp set Both Ways Blossoms I got this a couple of months ago and this was the first time I've used it! (all those holidays got in the way!) It's now one of my fav's!! The greeting stamp is from Warmest Regards (Level 1 Hostess set). Incidentally this card is to send to a Friend who was affected by the recent Bush Fires in Port Stephens (as were my parents). The cardstock colours here are Certainly Celery, Regal Rose & Confetti White (I use confetti white when I'm water colouring because its thicker than Whisper White and you get a nicer result). Blossoms were stamped in Stazon and water coloured with Watercolour Wonder Crayons and Aquapainter.
I like this one! It's relatively plain but I'm happy with the end result - very striking i think. Here instead of Stazon I coloured the blossoms with my Stampin Write Markers (Real Red & Glorious Green) and then spread the colour with my Aquapainter - this is a great way to achieve a water coloured effect. Cardstock colours are Creamy Caramel, Night of Navy, Real Red and Confetti White. The sentiment is from Riveting (Level 1 Hostess set) and there's also some linen thread on there.
That's all for now, but check back later - when I get home from this afternoons workshop I'll post the one we did as the make & take!
