Inside the Lines Make N Take

Well what a week it turned out to be last week!  I was on deadline for an assignment towards my design diploma and then my sweet hubby came down really sick as well.  Needless to say everything else went out the window, including blogging!  But it’s a new week, the assignment is submitted and hubby is back to work!

Today’s card is actually one of the great Make n Takes we completed at OnStage in Brisbane late last year, and it’s such a great project that I also used it for my catalogue launch a few weeks ago.  It features the FREE Sale-a-Bration gift Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper, and the fab new Watercolour Pencils!

You’re Sweet, Sweet, Sweet

Another fun card using the Cool Treats stamp set today – I am having so much fun with this bundle so you will definitely be seeing more of it in the coming weeks!
Cool Treats_Youre Sweet_magpiecreates
This card is actually a note card size which just adds to how cute it is!  A quick little tip for you:  Want a washi tape effect but don’t have just the right washi in your collection?  Just use a scrap of Designer Series Paper – simply cut into a strip and then tear each end – only a very close inspection will show that it’s not really washi!

The only problem with using this bundle is that I keeps making me crave ice cream (with chocolate dip!)

Stamps: Cool Treats

Beautiful You

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a great weekend – at last the summer weather seems to have shown up!

The Beautiful You stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue has been incredibly popular and with good reason, the images are lovely and perfect for colouring or paper piecing like I have done on today’s card:
Beautiful You_Paper Pieced_Magpiecreates
I chose the Pop of Pink Specialty DSP for my pieced dress as the gold fleck made me think of luxurious dress fabric.  The other 2 dresses used one of the images from the stamp set and Melon Mambo ink.Beautiful You_Paper Pieced Close_Magpiecreates
I stamped the whole main panel on Shimmery White card which adds another special element to the card.

Stamps: Beautiful You
