I hope you have had a great start to the week! I had a power day today and managed to get so much done all before lunch too! I love it when that happens.
I have had something to show you for two weeks, and am finally getting the chance to post about it. Recently I was asked to participate in a Stamper’s Showcase for the Australian Stamping and Papercraft magazine. I was sent a stamp from Motivet and had to create two cards using it.
Here is what I came up with…..
The front mag cover and my two cards…..
This first card I made using Chocolate chip cardstock and different shades of the Good morning Sunshine dsp from Stampin’Up. The image I have coloured with my Copic markers on some X-press it blending card. I added the kiwi kiss satin ribbon attached to a mini paperclip, some paper piercing and the spiral edge punch for embellishment.
This next card I created on a base of Basic grey cardstock, layered with some Urban garden dsp from Stampin’Up. I have stamped the same image and have watercoloured it with my stamp pads and aquapainter. The greeting is from the Really retro stamp set from SU. I added some pewter brads, and the basic grey taffeta ribbon as embellishments

Thanks to Australian Stamping and Papercraft for the opportunity to create, and share my creations with others….
Hopefully i get to stamp tonight or tomorrow… really feeling the need to get some brand new stamps dirty…finger crossed I actually make something decent enough to share with you all!
