Tissue Box Holder



Blackberry Bliss what a delight  with a beautiful Melon Mambo Daisy on the  Tissue Box cover.  A lovely way to give a sweet gift and make it so pretty. Also cheer up the dear sweet person with a head cold.
Just what we may need for the winter colds to hide those tissues away in your Hand Bag.  The beautiful Melon Mambo Tissue Flower was made with the Fringing Scissors and after the Daisy was made I then dyed it with our little spritzer spray bottle filled with water and a few drops of Melon Mambo and water.
It just looks so pretty and the daisy is so soft and sweet.
A couple of leaves wither side and a pretty label finishes the box up.

All I used was a sheet of Blackberry Bliss card stock
Four Sheets of Tissue Paper some pointy nosed Tweezers, to roll the flower up.  The flower also feels so soft.  Before I add the flower to the box I like to make sure it is dry so I leave it in the open air to dry.
It usually takes about 24 Hours.  If you place it on the box before properly dry  it will also fluff up beautifully if you brush the daisy petals up.
This beautiful pink was the colour that my sweet daughter use to love.  So any where I see this gorgeous pink colour I have beautiful Memories of Lizzie.
Happy Crafting.
If you would like this pattern please do not hesitate to email me.
love Carolyn
Have a lovely week crafting.

A Taste of Aussie in Stampin Up


My Favorite Card using some of our wonderful retired dies and the Butterfly Punch.  Quite a lot of this card has been quilled so I have used my own Licence here but in the making of this card all the stamp sets I have used, are current.
I love our Australian Native plants they fill me with delight and create that sense of well being within.  The eucalyptus which fills our air is refreshing and such an amazing healer as well.
The beauty and the scent of our bushlands  fill me with a sense of well being and gives me a great pride in our Australian Heritage.
On this Card I have used all Current Stamp Sets.  The beautiful Daffodil colouring brightens and brings the Spring into the air.  Which also represents our delightful Wattle Flower.


This is the Cover / Sleeve which the card slips into easily.  I do not make this until I have finished the main centre of the card as I need to use the main section for the depth of the sleeve so the card sits comfortably into it.
I do have the Handkerchief / Napkin Card in my tutorial on this site.
Enjoy the beauty of Australian Bushlands.
Have a wonderful week.
love Carolyn

Cutie Card for Baxters 1st Birthday

 My littlest grandsons 1st Birthday on Saturday.  The card I made was cased from one I had seen from Convention. Thank you Helen McEwen. Oh so cute.

 Sorry Baxter your Banner Photo did not come out too good but I thought it needed a place in this post.
 Last of all all the little pop cakes I made for the little ones.  All went down a treat.
Happy Birthday to our littlest sweet heart.

Envelope Box made on our Stampin Up Envelope Board.


Just sharing with you Our envelope Board Box Envelope.   It is so fabulous to be able to make a nice sturdy Envelope Box to put my chunky cards into.  This one I have decorated with our Punches and made it as a giving parcel, but if you packed your card carefully you would be able to use this Box Envelope to be able to post it.  I would also be careful how I sealed the envelope if sending it through the mail.
I am just over awed at all the amazing bits and pieces that we can use to make our special gifts even more special.
The flowers are made with Pansy Punch  and Scallop Edged Circle Punches and a little strip of glitter card to add some sparkle to the envelope.
Wishing you all a great weekend to come.  To those who are in winter at the moment cuddle up and those in the summer enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.
Love to all

Stampin Up Flower Shop Trifold Card


Just a beautiful warm glow of Tangello Twist here to tantalize the eyes in our cool winter months.  The Flower Shop Stamp Set looks like it was really made for this.  The lovely bright colours of summer making me feel warm again.
Here I used two of our Punch and Stamp Sets to create this trifold card.



These are the flowers on the 1st side made with Petite Petals and Punch.  The leaves are gold embossed from our new Kinda Electic Stamp Set. 

The last outer side is also made with Petite Petals and Punch as well as the gold embossed leaves from Kinda Electic Stamp Set.


Wishing you a beautiful and restful week end

Wreath for the Beauty of Summer with Stampin Up Spiral Rose Die

The beautiful vibrant colours of the Roses and the gorgeous Rose foliage, reminds me of the sensational perfume of the  Rose after a refreshing Summer shower.  In the winter this brings beautiful memories of the summer to come and lovely warm weather to dream about.  The days of warm cardigans and coats need a little inspiration to keep us going.


I had been fiddling with this wreath now for about 3 months just wondering what to adorn it with.  I have made everything from Azaleas to Zinnia's and all flowers in between .  Then it came to me the Stampin Up Die for the Spiral Rose. I had heaps of Roses I had made as I like to make my flowers and store them until I need them.


The gypsophila  I made with our new leaves out of the New Flower Die for the Big Shot by adding little punched out images of a flower scrunched up on the leaves.  Gypsophila is such a beautiful filler.  A couple of the leaves instead of adding the scrunched up tissue flowers.  I added tiny quilled roses made out of .5 cm. 


The Wreath was made from the Wreath kit in last mini catalogue but the Burlap ribbon is still available in our new Catalogue and all you need do is to make your Wreath Shape with Heavy Card stock and roll the Ribbon around the wreath.  I used partial dies to make Rose buds and then coloured edge of the leaves of the Roses with water colour.  I really needed to shade my Roses but that will come in my next wreath.  The Roses and leaves I attached to my Burlap Ribbon Wreath with the glue gun.  I always like to lay my wreath out before attaching so any changes I can make before the arrangement is complete.

Go ahead and make your beautiful Wreath and enjoy the beauty of the lost season in the winter.

love and 
Happy Crafting
Carolyn
