UStamp Origami Box & Card

Another day another UStamp project completed, I finished the card on Saturday night but only finished the origami box today. The box was a little confusing as the instructions used a scor-pal which I had never even heard of before UStamp but I was able to use my Fiskars Cutter with the scoring attachment.

Ink: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue
Card: Whisper White, Real Red, Bashful Blue, Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Real Red Striped Ribbon, 1/4" White Grosgrain Ribbon, Blue Rhinestone Brad, Paper Piercing Tool

Christmas is Coming - Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #10

It's been a wet and dark day in Woodside (in the Adelaide Hills for those of you from interstate or overseas) but the rain has been so welcome as we have been in draught for the last three years. Finally I have completed this card as I had planned to start it alot earlier in the day but my dad came to visit and then my good friend Lynette popped in so it took alot longer than I anticipated. I decided to make my first Christmas card for 2009 as time is ticking away and it will not be long and Christmas will be on our door. Thanks Keesha for the sketch challenge this week and hopefully I will get to make another creation tomorrow.

Stamp Set: Merry Merry, Seasons of Joy
Ink: Purely Pomegranate
Card: Very Vanilla, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Sage Shadow, Wintergreen Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Certainly Celery 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon

Inspirations Challenge #9

I finally was able to use my aqua painter on Makeesh Byl's Inspirations Challenge, I think my colouring turned out well (with the image white embossed and then coloured with purely pomegranate reinker), however the colour does change and does not really match my the purely pomegrante background and ribbon.

Stamp Set: Fifth Avenue Flower
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Purely Pomegranate
Card: Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Holiday Harmony Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Purely Pomegranate Double Stitched Ribbon, White Embossing Powder
