A Purple Dragon !!


Well here is another of those cute little Dinosaurs!! (I actually think it looks more like a dragon!! but anyway!!) This one is in purple tones, my water colouring is still pretty sketchy! but it'll come with practice I am sure. I have actually attempted the Mojo Monday 69 Sketch but when I had finsished I realized that I positioned the three circles down the bottom wrong!! Oh Well!! I like this one, think it's pretty. I have one more purple and two green toned coloured in still so I hope to work on those soon. I am working on a couple of BIG personal projects at the moment, so cards will be far and few between till they are done!! So till next time!! Happy Stamping!!

Materials Used - Stampin Up! - Cardstock & Inks - Lovely Lilac, Almost Amethyst, Sage Shadow. Stamps - Sanded, It's Your Birthday, One of a Kind. Accessories - Boho Blossoms Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, Pallette O Prints Almost Amethyst (retired), Rhinestone Brads - Pretties Kit. Stamp It - Dancing Dinosaur

Blue Dragons



Well I wasn't planning on posting today, but I managed to get these cards made up, so thought I'd share. My friend Debbie came over yesterday to make some cards and she had just bought this cute Dragon from Stamp It. So I stamped out a few images and sat and coloured them in last night. I have done two blue, two green and two purple. I have used my Watercolour Wonder Crayons to colour the images (my watercolouring isn't the best!) for these two little fellas I have used Taken with Teal and Tempting Turquoise, though when I went to get out the cardstock, last years Cool Carribean matched the lighter blue better. To choose the colour for the centre of the tummy I used my trusty colour wheel and selected Blush Blossom.

Materials Used - Stampin Up! - Cardstock & Inks - Taken with Teal, Cool Carribean, Blush Blossom. Stamp Sets - Rivetting, It's Your Birthday. Accessories - Watercolour Wonder Crayons, Versamark, Sponge Daubers, DP Loves Me (Retired), 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1" Cirlce Punch, Designer Label Punch. Stamp It -Dinosaur Dancing (though I think it looks like a Dragon!!). Other - White Embossing Powder, Kaiser Rhinestones, Turquoise Ribbon, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Ice Stickles.

And The (Not so Boyish) Blue Ones!

And here are my Blue ones! Yeah a bit girly hey?? I am hopeless at boy cards, I first did the one with the three ribbon knots, I asked Jayden if he would like it and he said "it is nice, but a bit girly Mum!!", so that was it! I decided to go the same as the pink! I will pull out my 'In the Stars' set in a few days and attempt some boy ones later. The materials are the sames as the post for the pink ones, except I have used Tempting Turquoise instead of Pink Passion!

Pink Cupcakes

Hi there Everyone! I hope you all had a safe and Happy Christmas/New Year!

I sat down with one of my friends yesterday to make some much needed birthday cards and decided to use Big Bold Birthday as it hasn't seen ink yet!! I found a lovely card on SCS that I thought could be boy or girl so thought I'd make four of each. Here are my Pink Ones!! Basically the same but changed a little to make them all a bit different. The background has been stamped off once to make it a softer shade and I have inked the scallop with the versamark then clear embossed it to give the 'Icing' a glossy look and the candles have Kindy Glitz on them. The Staz-On has given a really nice crisp image on the base of the cupcake!! I am rather pleased with them, and at least I have added some to my stash!

Materials Used - Stampin Up! - Carstock & Inks - Black Staz-On, Basic Black, Basic Grey, Pink Passion, Whisper White. Stamp Sets - Big Bold Birthday. Accessories - Word Window Punch, Basic Black Grosgrain, Ribbon Slide (Pretties Kit), Scallop Cirlce Punch. Other - EK Success - Happy Birthday, Pink Grosgrain Ribbon, Versamark, Superfine Clear Embossing Powder, Kindy Glitz, Kaiser Rhinestones, Silver Spiral.

In the Interest of Public Safety!!

Detour Announcement!

Singstart Abba and Singstar Disney has found its way to the Cassidy household, so in the interest of saving your ears, if you happen to be driving down this way please take an alternative route!! (haha) Albany Highway and Tonkin Highway would be the two major roads in either direction, but might I suggest Tonkin Highway, as the speed limit is 100kph so your escape will be faster!

Sorry couldn't resist!!
