Fathers Day

I had a lovely time on Roster at Kindy yesterday making Fathers Day Cards. Some very eager little people had fun, stamping the background of the card and either stamping the Motorbike image or adding the stars…. oh yes and then there was the glue stick. They all love glue sticks so those feature panels are not going anywhere.

The children then got to write their names on the inside and draw a picture for their dad.

Fathers Day

Whilst Dad didn’t get to ride his motorbike on Fathers Day, instead spending time with Miss 3 and Master 1.  We thought it was only fitting that his card portrayed something that is near and dear to him.

Fathers Day

The motorcycle stamp is from the Autumn/Winter Mini catalogue, so unfortunately it is no longer available.  I stamped the image with Staz On and then applied some colour using Stampin Pastels and a blender pen.   Having seen this in action, Miss 3 is now a fan of using a blender pen and Stampin Pastels.

Need a little colour in your work?  I would be only too happy run a workhshop for you to show you how to use products like, Stampin Pastels, Blender Pens, Aqua Painters, Stampin Write Markers & Ink to add colour to your projects.  Contact me on:  mbl: 0438 057 498 or email: stampinwithfi@bigpond.com

Blog… what Blog

>This is one sadly neglected blog.

Having welcomed a darling little boy into our family in the second half of last year and then packed up and moved from NQ back to Brisbane, there was little time for the blog.

As I prepare to hold my first workshop since returning to Brisbane I have decided time to reinvigorate my blog.

Stay tuned!

Gift Cards

Liz (my lovely upline) provides us with so many inspirational idea’s. When I was in Brisbane recently she gave me a set of 4 little gift tags in a cellophane bag…. very nice and a great idea to use up all of those bits and bobs of cardstock and patterned paper that we all accumulate. And for me a particularly good way to use up the non SU product that has been pretty much put to the side
I decided to make some gift cards for a couple of friends. My cellophane bag was a larger size and a perfect fit to hold 4, 3” x 3” cards. In this case I have used a retired SU DSP “Spring Flowers“ from the 2007-2008 Catalogue and Ideas book.

Dying the flowers
I do not have a “pretties kit” or many ink refills at present although I do have a load of Kaiser flowers. Whilst the pretties flowers are much nicer it is a matter of priority at the moment…. so how can I dye these flowers with the resources that I have…mmm… well I took my Aquapainter and filled it with water, pressed the flower face down into the chosen ink pad (in this case Apricot Appeal), then flooded the flower with water to disperse the colour…. I then had a very wet and very limp flower (which is effectively compressed paper)… so what does one do to dry the flower and ink…. well put it on the louver window in the sun of course (in June, a lovely 25 degrees in Townsville)
