Stamp set Challenge- Day One and Two

Ok so for those who don't know, I set myself a challenge while I was visiting my sister in Ballarat this week.. I challenged myself to use all of my stamp sets in some way before Christmas- otherwise they needed to go. I found that when I first started stamping, I went nuts and bought as many sets as I could. I have a huge collection of stamps and don't pick them up because they aren't my "favourites". So I decided I needed to use them!
Here are a few of my creations, including some bookmarks I made with an incredibly ludicrously priced stamp set I bought at the end of last year and haven't used...!!

Christmas is coming... Eek!

I never thought I would be one of those people, but in September I'm already getting organised for Christmas! I think mainly because I stress over Christmas cards and how long it takes me to make them.
I wanted to create little Christmas cards with the new Get Your Santa On set (135761) from the Holiday Catalogue. I fell in love with this cute little set. It is one of the new Photopolymer sets, and I must admit, I was impressed by the level of detail these stamps had in them.

These cards are cute little 3"x3" cards, stamped in Memento Ink on Whisper White, coloured with a blender pen in Real Red, Soft Suede, and Crushed Curry. I mounted them on Real Red Cardstock and Lucky Limeade Cardstock. Simple little cards that are easy to create- Perfect for Christmas!!

Sweet Sorbet

I am kicking myself that I didn't get the Sweet Sorbet DSP when it was available during SAB. However I have managed to get my hands on some and I love it! Sharing some of my recent projects, a business card holder ready for a market in a week, a matching Card and Tea Bag dispenser I've made as a gift for a co-worker, and a fun Father's Day card, ready for Fathers day tomorrow.

I also had my first attempt at a video tutorial for the business card holder, so check that out too!!
Please contact me if you would like any of the instructions!
