Wall Hanger

I was asked to create a wall hanger for Shirley (Lady from work), for her son's best friend. I had made 1 for my daughter's room with her friends from school but in a pink version with butterflies and flowers. A boy version is a lot harder and I have limited equipment. Let me know what you think?

SU Cardstock: Whisper White, Black, Bashful Blue and Pacific Point.
SU Stamps: Classic Stars and the rocket from the Pun Fun.
SU DSP: Good Morning Sunshine.
SU Inks: Stazon black, Bold Brights markers, pacific point ink pad and versamark.
SU Other: Silver embossing powder, Aquapainter, Crystal effects, Small and Large star punch and spiral punch. The ribbon is pacific point. The sticker letters aren't Stampin' Up!.
I think that's all. I watercoloured the rocketship, I love that stamp it's from the Pun Fun set. If you don't have that set and would like to buy it contact me now.

Pizza Box Recipe

OK for the Pizza Box Recipe

SU Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Only Orange and Whisper White

SU Stamps: Flower Fancy and Sincere Salutations

SU Ink: StazOn Jet Black and Bold Brights Markers

SU Embellishments: Ribbon, Mat Pack, Dimensionals, Aqua Painters, Watercolour Paper and Paper Snips.

The box to make is very easy and I thought that I will make some 3' inch cards in the same cardstock and would make a very nice gift. I stamped the Fancy Flower Stamp Set using StazOn Jet Black Ink and then used my Bold Bright Markers for the watercolouring. Then I cut every piece out and then stuck the pieces on with the SU 2-Way Glue and a couple of the flower I used some Dimensionals. Using the Mat Pack and Marker I crated the fake stitching around the edge.
Thanks for Looking

Splitcoaster Challenge

Last Night I completed a Splitcoaststampers challenge.
I watercoloured the flower Fancy Stamp on Stampin' Up! Watercolour paper (Watercolour Paper is so much easier to use then normal cardstock) and then used So Saffon cardstock with pretty in pink and Bella rose panels. Also attached a strip of Real Red Ribbon. This is my first attempt at any challenge. I really enjoy waterwatering. Still trying to work out on the best way to take the picture.

This is a challenge from Splitcoast Stampers , I attemped to do at 11pm last night, If anyone would like to complete the challenge and email me your card by the midnight 30th June. Only people in Australia can enter as Postage would cost to much. Anyone can enter. The winner would receive a pack of Stampin' Up! A4 Cardstock your choice of colours.
