Hi Stampers

I promised last evening that I would post a pic of Vicki’s winning card from the challenge we did at the Southern Highlands Cardmaking Day and here it is. She says it won because she was using her favourite colours. What do you think?

Thanks for dropping by……………………………………………………………….till next time,

Southern Highlands Cardmaking Day

Welcome to my blog.

Yesterday I had a fun day with two fellow Avid Inkers and other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from the surrounding region. There were 16 of us in all and the day was wonderfully put together by Michele Jutrisa at St Stephen’s Church Hall in Mittagong.

It was a day for us to get together and have fun. We had Donna Williams (from Stampin’ Up! join us for the early part of the day, and lunch) and the lovely Cathy from the Church kept us well fed and lubricated. Others came from Jervis Bay, Windsor, Campbelltown and even the Hunter Valley.

I wanted to share with you the card I made as part of a challenge. We were each given A5 pieces of cardstock in Whisper White, Basic Black and 3 other colours, 1/4 piece of See a Silhouette DSP, some ribbon, and Epoxy Droplets. The challenge was to come up with a card. Below is the one I made.

I used Night of Navy, Crushed Curry and Whisper White Card and the DSP. I also used the Tailored Tag Punch which I had on hand.

I decided to make a Bridge Card and although the photo at left is not great, you can see that I lined the back panel with the DSP and stuck a couple of punched out pieces across the opening. The card will still fold flat for posting.

I was quite happy with the resulting card. We each had to place a sticker on the card we liked the best and 3 winners were selected. Sadly, mine wasn’t one of them! But I got over it. Unfortunately, I didn’t get photos of the others, but I will ask Vicki for a pic of hers, and she was one of the winners! I will post it in the next few days.

I am sure I will be posting more in coming days, so stay tuned.

That’s it for now, thanks for popping by………………………………….till next time,
