Testing the Waters

Hey Guys,
Thanks for coming to check out my blog. I have had another great week playing with the great supplies I have from Stampin' up and creating an extremely long wish list (Please let me win the lottery ;) ) 

One stamp set I am really glad I brought is the foxy friends, these are just some of the cards I have created from it.




Through watching a million YouTube videos on cards others have made I came across this technique called braided card, and I love it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LEU7Hzgb2I. Go to this video to watch how it is done. I really wanted to try it on a black card and I think it came out great. (The cake is from the stamp set just married, the saying is from the stamp set hello love)


Last one I want to show you is using the dots embossing folder and the banner blast stamp set and the saying is from hip hip hooray card kit 


Thanks for stopping to check out my post, and I hope you come back as I learn to create more amazing cards,

Love, Tori & TeAo xxoo

Banner Card

Hi Guys,
Thanks for coming to check out my blog.

It has been a great first week, trying out all my new stamps.

With all the bad weather it has been the perfect time to stay inside with the heater on and create some awesome cards (If this weather keeps up I'm going to get a lot of cards made). I got a stamp set called banner blast and I think it is such a great set with so many different ways of using it. As always I searched through pinterest to see how others had used this set and came across one done by Sandy ( you can check it out here http://www.stampwithsandy.com/2014/03/banner-blast-hello-dd95-sc.html) and thought it was a great idea, so here is my version of this card

First Post

Hi Guys,
Thanks for coming to check out my blog.

About a week ago I decided to take my creative side of me and try making cards, with the help of the great products that Stampin' Up offer and my wonderful friend Jessie who showed me the products (This is a link to her blog http://mollypossum.blogspot.com.au/)

If you want to check out their create products just head over to this address 

I was so excited when my first order arrived that I wanted to start Stampin' up straight away, however all my inks were in my second parcel. After what felt like forever(but really was the next day) all the rest of my great products arrived. YAY!! Even better my daughter was at daycare, so I had free rein to craft to my hearts content without any interruptions(Except my stomach at lunch time). 

Prior to joining up to Stampin' Up I had spent A LOT of time on YouTube and Pinterest getting great ideas on what to create. Hence my dilemma, when it came time to start stamping I had no idea where to start. I just had to pick a set and go with it. 

I really loved the Foxy friends photopolymer bundle and had seen this great card for inspiration. 
Thanks to Wendy in USA - This is the link to her version of the card http://www.luvinstampin.com/2016/06/june-luvly-stampers-team-event-featuring-foxy-friends-by-stampin-up.html she also has a video to show you how she did it. 

So this is my very first card, I hope of many to come.
