Glitter + stampin round wheels= fun

The Ladies at my weekend workshop have already seen this project so I thought I better get it up and posted so that everyone else can have a peek. H ave used the stampin round wheel Neighbourhood and the very yummy supernova glitter on this 6x6 scrapbbok page
firstly I wheeled along the designer series paper Windsor Knot then I wheeled on whisper white, with versemark watermark stamp pad as it dries slower. Dusted that surface with heat and stick powder the techniquie is the same as using embossing powder the covered with glitter, reheated again gently and ker-pow that glitter is never coming off LOL for his page I have used the yummy green and the pink

A rose is a rose

Diane and I had great fun last night with fine supernova glitter and the rose is a rose set this is Diane's creation which is beautiful with the Rose being stamped in pink pirouette the second stamped with regal rose. She stamped two roses the cut them up and layered them with dimensional dots between the layers. Supporting papers used are Bella Rose Riding hood red and Kiwi Kiss
here is a cropped view of the layering I love the glitter it is amazingly fine and sparkly therefore a little hard to get a photo of but you get the idea yummy

Colour challenge 51

My submission for this weeks colour challenge by Kristina is using the stamp set bird on a branch. I have used the stampin pastels mustard, chocolate chip and regal rose for the scattering on the whisper white card stock. The scatterings represents someone who has left my life and how I often think of them, pardon the pun but often with rose tinted glasses, and how those thoughts of them float through your mind. Various colours and shades of colours for different emotions floating by

Photo story of Dunedin Regionals

Well this kind of says it all our regionals on the 18th of April 2009 where finally held in Dunedin the mid lower section of the South Island and boy was that a treat usually I have to drive over three hours to Get to Christchurch whereas for Dunedin it is one and a half hours yeah plus it is my home town so I get to sleep over at my girlfriends place go to the movies together and talk talk talk

For Myself this is one of the best sights in the world the final decent from the Northern Motor way and the hilly and harbour view of Dunedin itself I always have the feeling of returning home when you reach this point I have always lived in the hill Suburbs which in itself is often the snow line ....... I miss that now

Oh yikes yes this is me and I was lucky enough to be chosen by the Fabulous Emma to be on of the demonstrators doing a WOW the other was Paula from Invercargill and she was fantastic. Me being me I actually ended up showing three wows and I think the Ladies enjoyed them

this is just a very token sample of the wide variety of cards and three dimensional projects the other demonstrators and guests brought to the table it was totally awesome and you just get som many Ideas

I would like to think that we all had a brilliant day I know I did and I really enjoyed chatting and hanging out with Ladies from other teams it was very friendly great fun and welcoming I would like to think that new friendships where made so until the next time girls we will just have to check out each others Blogs

The regionals where held out at the airport and for those unfamiliar with the region I wouldn't mind guessing the thought they where going to the back of beyound. Thats what is so special about Dunedin and the Airport 5 mins out of town and its Country .. From the windows we could watch planes taking off and cows and sheep eating grass. It was great

I Had to put this barn side in as It has been a local Icon for ever and I just love it not that I am a country girl NO WAY but I always enjoy the rusticness of this signage.

For my card I have used Rustic Rooster (level one) hostess set and Bird on a branch which we received at our regional meeting in Dunedin. can I just say I am really starting to like this little set and it is not one I would have picked for myself but is is very elegant
