Combi Van Challenge

I bought a rustic looking 12" x 12" window box picture frame with out knowing what I was going to do with it. After many thoughts, I decided I would challenge myself to make a 3D combi van picture with a beachy feel. I wanted the whole picture to be made out of Stampin Up card stock.

The whole van was cut out by hand, I simply sketched shapes I wanted onto card stock and then cut out the pieces and layered them with foam tape to get a 3D look. I used Stampin Up punches where I could, for example, circle punches for the wheels and lights.

I did lots of sketching, cutting, tearing and ink staining and approximately 20 hours later, the end result was better than I thought it would be...

1st Club Night

I had my first club night on the 7 February and it was a great success. These were the two projects we made. The first card was using lots of new products from the new occasions catalogue and the second card I wanted to do a card that was really quick using washi tape.

Graduations Cards

Both my kids graduated at the end of last year and these are the cards I made for them. I am very proud of their achievements. I made these cards using the blue ribbon stamp set from Stampin Up.
