I had a great time at the Auckland Regional Training last Saturday. There were about 50 demonstrators that attended. My swap was inspired my a box that is on Marelle Taylor's blog. It is a very easy cube box. I filled mine with bath bombs.
If you look closely you can see that I stamped my cellophane bags with the flower from the "Fifth Avenue Floral" stamp set in White Stazon.

Great Friend, Fifth Avenue Floral

Fresh Cuts Christmas

I really love the way the Fresh Cuts stamp set and the Fresh Cuts notes can be so versatile and you can make a lovely card in a short time. I had this idea floating in my mind for a few weeks as I think Stampin' Up have stamp sets that you can use all year round and lend themselves well for Christmas cards. So this is what I came up with.

Supplies used: Stamp Sets, Fresh Cuts, Short and Sweet.
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Versmark.
Card Stock: Fresh Cut Notes, Kiwi Kiss. Whisper White.
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, Dimensionals, Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla Satin ribbon, Clear Rhinestone Brads, 5 Petal Punch.

Fifth Avenue Floral

I have just recently been using the stamp set Fifth Avenue Floral and what a gorgeous set of stamps. I wanted to thank a friend of mine who has been helping with Sarah's netball team and made her this card and gave her the packet of cards as a small gift. These were so easy to make and I love using these colours. The Basic Gray, Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss work so beautifully together.

Supplies used; Ink; Old Olive, Going Gray, Markers; Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Card; Whisper White, Other; Dimensionals.
