Sunset, sunset

Hi Everyone,

Something a little different from me today, whilst cleaning up my crafting space yesterday, I found this card...

A sponged background with a sunset... then I've stamped the images from Pocket Silhouettes in Staz-on ink afterwards.

The sunset effect is achieved by punching a circle from a sticky note and putting it on your card. Then sponge your colours on, remove the sticky circle, add some more yellow (in this case I used "Summer Sun" which is a retired colour, but you could use "Daffodil Delight"), add a little more orange "Peach Parfait" & "Pumpkin Pie". Once you have your background, then you stamped your silhouette image. Clean crisp images work best!

Have a great long wkend if you are in WA, I have a million and one things I'd like to do plus some stamping time lol :)

Hi Everyone,

Today I thought I'd show you a couple of pics of my stalls so far this month..

First up is The Glades Art & Produce Markets from 15th Oct. This was the first of the Summer Series of outdoor Moonlight Markets.

Next is the Carey Monster Fair from 22nd Oct:

Courtney, my downline gave me a massive help at the Carey Monster Fair, staying with me all day. It was great to have some help on my stall and especially someone who shares my passion for Stampin' Up! THANKS COURT!!!

Kid's Holiday Class

Hi Everyone,

Over the school holidays I held another Kid's Class and this is what we made:

We used the "Under the Big Top" stamp set that was our gift at the Regionals training back in Sept - I love it and can't wait to make some more cards with this set!

I had a spare kit and made this 'stepped up' version of the same card:

If you are interested in finding out more about my Kid's Classes, please contact me by email. I can come to you too for a minimum of 4 participants, and I'm also happy to teach in a classroom situation for any teachers that may be looking for something different to do this Christmas season.

Pony Party x7

Hi Everyone,

Ever made a card and then liked it so much you make some more, I just knew if I only made one of these cuties for my stall, then I was almost definitely going to have the wrong number on it! So to overcome that little "issue", I made 7 cards! It's something I don't normally do, but hey, with all the markets and fairs around at the moment, I thought, "Why not?"

Hope you like as much as I do :)

Parties Favours

Hi Everyone,

As part of Miss 5's birthday celebrations, she had a party with some friends, these were the notepads included with the party bags, pirates for the boys, princesses for the girls, all to fit in with the theme of the day...

These were really well received by all the guests and I just had to make some extras for my stall - one mum was most impressed with her daughter's choice of a gift for herself and her brother on Sat night at the Glades Markets!

New techniques!!

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday I was playing working in my craft room and I thought I'd try out some of the workshop wows I saw at Regionals.

So first off I tried some new punch art flowers.... And then I used it to decorate this photo frame:

Then I tried another flower and the 'bargello' technique for the quilted pattern in the background.

The sentiment is from the new hostess only set "Happiest  Birthday Wishes"
If you are coming to my class on Friday, you just may see one or both of these techniques! Please email stampingwithrichelle@iinet.net.au for more information :)
