Papercraft Essentials Issue 1

About 6 months ago, I was very excited to be asked to do an article for the Australian edition of Papercrafts Essentials. This was my first commissioned piece, and I wanted to get it just right. Here it is finally in print, check out Issue 1 of Papercraft Essentials, pages 35-38. I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did creating it! (To view a larger version of each picture, just click on each image).

Oh, I forgot to mention, the best part was... I got to keep all the stamps ;)

"Thinking of You" Butterfly Card

I was so pleased & excited to get my card published in a recent issue of Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft (Vol. 14 No. 8 page 34)

Here is the card close up...

I stamped Penny Black 3327J spring branch & 3864F bohemian butterfly with Versafine onyx black ink. I then stamped the "thinking of you" greeting from Penny Black 30-014 Salutations clear stamp set with Versacolor black in and clear-embossed it. I then coloured the images in with Tombow markers, layered the image onto coloured cardstock, and applied assorted rhinestones & stickles glitter glue to finish.

More Darkroom Door - Trees

Did I mention that Darkroom Door is a fabulous new Aussie company which produces quality unmounted rubber stamps? Check out: for more details. I created these colourful cards from the Darkroom Door Trees (DDRS018) set of stamps. The Happy Birthday & Merry Chirstmas greetings are from various other Darkroom Door sets (DDRS003, DDRS015, DDRS020).

Darkroom Door Full Bloom Vol 2 Frangipani stamp

It's been a while since my last post, have been busy getting the craft business side of things up & running - have a whole bunch of craft shows lined up for 2009 (check out the Dragonfly Crafts Blog for more details:

I have also been hard at work creating loads of new cards... you can view my photo album of cards on my Facebook page:

However, here are a select few to tempt your "crafty" tastebuds :)

I did these over 6 months ago, but haven't had a chance to upload them. I created this set of 5 cards using the Frangipani stamp from Darkroom Door Full Bloom Vol 2 set of unmounted stamps together with the Kelly Panacci Swirls clear set of stamps.

Stay tuned, more to come...
