Simply Gorjuss cards

Good afternoon

Here in Cape Town it is hot, hot, hot. Our spring has finally arrived. I am so happy that the winter is gone and we will only "see" it again next year. 

Over the past view days I have made 3 cards, I made it from my awesome prize that I have won. I have not made anything to awe inspiring as I have followed their instructions on these cards. My mind is already thinking about a pop-up box card as well as some step cards.

My first card.

A close up off the card. I have used some dimensional glaze on the mushrooms, truffle an stripes of her hat and arms.

My second card.

My third card. I love the frame on this picture, it looks so old and classy.

Another close up.

That is it from me for today. Have a great evening.

Awesome Simply Gorjuss prize

Hi all.

Hope you have all been well. It's been a while since I have last posted anything. With the little one being two years old now I hope to be back here more frequently.

Last week I was informed that I was the lucky winner of a competition that was on Facebook. The sponser was The Wholesaler. Wednesday my prize was delivered and needless to say I was blown away. In my wildest dreams I could not imagine the prize. When I commented on the competition it said that the prize is a hamper of some Simply Gorjuss goodies. I thought it would be something like one stampset and some paper. Oh boy was I wrong. 

Here is some pictures of my prize.

My whole dinning room table was coverd .

There are some ribbon, buttons and tissue paper.

Some of the stamp sets, there is a total of 13 stamp sets.

Some decoupage packs.

Some of the other stamp sets and some of the paper.

I am still so overwhelmed with it all, but I have started to make some cards.  I will share some later today or tomorrow.

Thank you for visiting and have a great rest of your Tuesday.

New stamps

Good afternoon

I hope that you are doing well and are enjoying the week so far.  I have been spoiled by my husband as he bought me some stamps that has been on my wishlist for a long time.  These are my very first Hero Arts stamps and also my very first flower stamps. I have had some flower stamps in mind as all the stamps that I own might be considered as "child friendly". I have had requests to make cards that feature a more "grown-up" feeling, hence the flower stamps.  I bought these from a very lovely lady called Shamela from Kanje Krafts and Kreations, her service is excellent and her prices are very good.

So here is 2 pictures of my  4 new stamps.

I have coloured some of the stamped images.  The pink flower is not finished as I want to add a brad to the middle when I make the card.

My kids had a 3 week holiday and as my craft room is separate from the house, I did not get to spend much time in there during their holiday, so I packed my copics and stamped images and brought them into the house and spend a little time colouring them.  Since school started today I am hoping to finish the cards during the week.... or next week. So here is a sneak peak at my coloured images, I really need to practice my colouring.

So that is it from me. Thank you for staying and seeing what I have been up to.  I am really excited about my new Hero Arts Stamps.  Please leave a comment, I love to hear from you.
