Sheltering Bicycle

This is one of the cards we created at my recent Sheltering Tree class.  I wanted a masculine card to balance out all the pretty feminine cards I had seen made with this stamp set.

Sheltering Bicycle_Birthday_Magpiecreates My favourite piece of this card is the Crushed Curry Starburst layer directly behind the stamped bike – I think it looks like the sprocket for a bike chain!

This card is destined for my brother who has a birthday soon – he is a keen cyclist, so hopefully he will like it!


Technique Class – Next Thursday!

Bubblewrap Backgrounds!!

Bubblewrap Background_Sneak_Magpiecreates
It’s all about bubblewrap in Technique Class for May! These classes will increase your stamping repertoire with a new technique offered every month! You will learn new ways to use the products you already own, as well as being introduced to new items you may never have known how to use.

Come and learn how to create 2 fabulous bubblewrap background effects! In class you will learn the techniques and create a sample to go on your technique tip sheet, which you can file for future reference. You will also create a card using the same techniques.

DATE: Thursday 7 May

TIME: 10am or 7.30pm

COST: $15

The Technique classes are VERY popular so get in quick to secure your spot!



Something Lacy & Gold

Aren’t I a naughty blogger leaving you with no posts to enjoy!  It’s been a little hectic catching up after the school holidays and getting ready to head to the Gold Coast on Tuesday for Stampin’ Up! Convention! I am back now though and I promise that I have scheduled posts for you while I am away!  You may also like to check-in on my Facebook page as I will be posting from Convention with all the news and maybe a sneak peek or two!

Righto on to the project!  This is a pretty card that I have demonstrated at a couple of recent parties and have even sent it out to a couple of lucky recipients!  I wish I could say that it is my design but I CASEd it from our great demonstrator magazine Impressions!

I love all the little touches of gold on this card – combined with the pretty background stamp it really is quite special!

Here’s what I used:
