Kaszazz Aussie Animals Cards

Hi Everyone

Today I am sharing with you the first of a set of Aussie animal cards created with these great stamps and papers from Kaszazz


The first card uses Kookaburra and gumleaves stamps and a sentiment from Fellas messages set. The paper is gumleaves from Australian collection. Kookaburra was stamped in memento ink on to white card, coloured with alcohol ink markers and cut out. Gumleaves was stamped on to olive card and to gumleaves paper with archival ink, coloured with watercolour pencils and cut out. The sentiment is embossed. This has been matted to olive card and on to a white card base.


This card has Wattle stamped on to reverse gumleaves paper with memento ink and is coloured with alcohol markers, Sentiment from Wishing you set is embossed. This is matted to yellow card and on to a white base. Cockatoo from Australian Animals set is stamped to white card in memento ink and coloured with alcohol markers. This is then mounted above wattle, and coated with glossy accents.


Possum has been stamped on black card in versamark ink and white embossed. Gumleaves have been stamped around the possum in versamark and clear embossed. The sentiment is also white embossed. Gumleaves have been stamped in archival on to olive card, coloured with pencils and cut out and mounted beside the possum. The card base is again white. The gum flowers have been highlighted with stickles and the gumnuts and some leaves coated with glossy accents.
I just love these stamps and have created more projects  using them to share with you later.
Till next time

Mini Pink Gloss Black...


Here is another Mini Album created using embellishments from my jars shown here, chipboards and flowers.

This is a photo of the pieces and my design before I embellished them - very plain - I was looking for the kapow factor, so I painted the chipboards with black acrylic paint and then coated them with glossy accents.

Flowers, brads and ribbons finished my embellishments.  I 'bound' the album by using a single ring, decorated with ribbons.

Quick and easy and yes a great way to use up goodies from my stash!

Enjoy your day!

Mini Bird Album - Memories...


In sorting through my embellishment jars here, I came across some Maya Road bird chippies and some rectangular chipboards and this is what I have created using these goodies. A Mini Album held together by a single ring in the centre at the top.

I painted the edges of the chipboard rectangles with gold paint, stamped wording (Stampin' Up) on white cardstock, which I then adhered to the rectangles. Next I painted the bird with brown acrylic paint, adding touches of gold and white paints to the wings, and then applied glossy accents to the wings also.

I painted the edges of the album covers with the same brown paint as the birds and have used papers from my stash of leftover pieces see here.

Finishing touches - were rhinestones for the birds eyes and ribbons attached to the ring. 

I will be back soon with some more Mini Albums which I have created using more chipboards from my embellishment jars.

Thanks for visiting us

Gift Card Packs...

Good morning,

Packs of notecards are a great gift idea, whether you create a box or folder to hold them or tie ribbon or twine around them.  Following are photos of  4 of the packs of gift cards that I have created recently...

Stamped images, glitter, washi tape, twine and rhinestones...

Embossed and coloured images, brads and paper flowers...

Wooden painted flowers and embossed backgrounds...

Packed in Sets of five, these cards are half the size of a normal A5 card. 

Great to add to a small gift for whatever reason!

Have a fantastic day!
