Retired Products to sell

Hi all, I have lots of stamp sets that are now on the retired list, so I have decided to sell them to make way for more products. If you would like to look at these sets, click here to be directed to the page. Once they have been sold, they will be removed from the page. All prices quoted are for the stamp sets only. An additional $5.95 postage is required to cover. Drop me a line if you are interested in anything. More will be added later in the year from the mini catalogue.

Baby Shower

This is the first card I have made using a new stamp set from the 2010-2011 IB&C. You will have to excuse the focus of the camera work, but I just had to take a picture before rushing out the door to a baby shower. My goodness me, it has been long time  since I have been to a baby shower. When I first arrived I was given two pegs, if you said “Baby” then you lost a peg to whoever heard you. I think I was the first one out.

Anyway, back to the card at hand. This new set is called Baby Bundle, and how apt that it had a verse about baby showers.

I must admit, that I left making the card until the last minute and under pressure, just couldn’t think of how to make the card. Thank goodness for the internet, because I went surfing and found a card with a very similar layout, and went Yes! I like that card. So what you see is my final creation.

Origami Fathers Day

I made these two cards for my children to give to their father on Fathers Day.

Both feature “Origami”. I know what you are thinking… if you are anything like me, you haven’t done Origami since you were at school.

But these are both great for male inspired cards. I found the instructions through other demonstrators and knew as soon as I saw them ages ago that this is what I wanted to use them for.

Both have used retiring colours, card stock and DSP, but that’s fine, you get the point.

My 11 year old daughter was so inspired from this card, she made a 30cm “tie” from DSP and cardstock, thread ribbon thru the top, so dad could slip it over his head and she also wrote on the back of it. I am always so amazed at the imagination of children. They often have very different ideas from us, but theirs is no less important.
