Retirement List is Here!!

Hi all,

A very quick post from me today.  I’m currently having a short stay (we hope) at the Mater Children’s Hospital with my daughter Lara. She’s picked up a little bug and needs a few days on oxygen and a little bit of TLC. We’ve been here since the (very) early hours of Saturday morning! My poor hubby has been ill with a flu as well so i’m on 24/7 hospital duty. Lucky me hey?!  I’ve managed to get a wee bit of internets access so i’m able to post up the retirment list of products from the 2010/2011 Idea Book & Catalogue.

Check it out here: http://204.228.150.61/docs/lastchance/en-AU/Availability_en-AU.pdf

Don’t forget to keep checking back regularly as that document is bound to change frequently.  If there is a set or product that you think you can’t live without, don’t delay!  You could be disappointed if you miss out.  Feel free to text or call my mobile number if you would like to order anything! I’m sure I’ll be able to sort it out for you! (0414) 3 66 640.

Until next time!

Happy Stamping!!

20% Saving!

Hi all!

Sorry to be so MIA at the moment.  I’ve been super busy with LIFE. It tends to get in the way of my creating!!

I’m here though now to offer you a saving of 20% off any order that you place between now the 18th of July until the 30th of July. That’s 12 days to get your order together to get a massive discount and saving off some of those things that might be on your wish list.

Don’t forget there is also a gift with purchase this month! Spend $100 to get a limited edition ribbon and button bundle!

One of the reasons I’m doing this is because due to commitments to my family (i.e. Lara May!!) this last few months, I’ve not been actively doing a lot with my Stampin’ Up! business. I have goals and targets to meet this month and so I thought by offering you all a discount, we’d be helping out each other! This is also the reason that it’s only running until the 30th of this month.

Don’t forget I can have your order shipped anywhere in Australia! And if you refer a friend and they place an order, you will both get a little goody package shipped to you as well!!  Just another way of my thanking you for helping out!!

AND! Don’t forget the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue finishes this month as well!! You don’t want to miss out! Need to see it again? Online version here –> MINI

ORDERS CAN BE EMAILED TO ME @ madonna AT madonnadunn DOT com DOT au

I look forward to being back with some creations soon!

Until then,

Happy Stamping! (or shopping with me!! LOL)

Simple Suede

Good afternoon!!  What a week!!  I’m sorry for being a slack blogger this last wee while.  I’ve been up to my eyeballs in fundraiser and children being ill and all manner of things that are life!!  But!  I am here now for a brief moment! 

This afternoon I’ve had a chance to do some creating in the peace of a silent house.  Hubby has taken the three big kids to visit family and it’s just Lara May & I.  Lara has been napping on and off which has given me some time to do some {very} much needed stamping for fun!  On my upline Alisa’s forum there was a cyberstamp and one of the challenges was Clean & Simple.  Another was Faux Suede.   I am LOVING what I created.  I don’t say that much, but I really really love these cards.  LOVE THEM.   Wanna see?

simple suede1

Ok, so I’m in a chatty mood so you’re gonna get the whole story.  Just skip text and look at purty pics if you’re in a hurry!!  LOL

So first of all what IS clean & simple?  Minimal layering.  Minimal embellishments.  Uncluttered, lots of white space.  Able to be reproduced quickly.  Err. Can I pull that off??  Hmmmn.  Not sure (oh yeah, we already know I did, but just humour me ‘kay?).  I knew I wanted to do the suede look on the clean and simple.  Two birds, one stone and all that.  I needed to maximise play on limited time.  What’s Faux Suede? It’s where you use a bone folder over and over your piece of cardstock until the layers separate.  When you pull them apart you get the suede effect.  Noice eh?

I started by stamping the damask design from Friends 24-7 onto Whisper White Cardstock in chocolate.  I used Baja Breeze for the strip of suede and the sentiment and label are from the very lovely Vintage Labels set you can get for FREE with Sale-a-bration (go on ask me how!).  I punched out the sentiment with the mega oval punch and sponged the edges in Baja.  I loved the result so much I decided to whip up a whole bunch more.  But when I went to stamp I put the damask stamp into the Baja pad.  Ooops.  Oh! Actually, that looks kinda cool too.  So out came the chocolate strips and I sueded them up too.  In the end I had 3 with the Baja damasks & 3 with Chocolate Chip.  A set!!

simple suede2

An the two different ones together:

simple suede4

And just to be different I then made this one with a Baja Breeze base.  Choc Chip damask design and the Choc Chip Suede strip.  The others I will bundle up in a nice white bag with some envelopes stamped with the damask design, and a bit of  Baja or Chocolate ribbon wrapped around it.  The card below will be the one I write in to say thanks to one of the loveliest Mums from school who makes my family a meal every time my Lara is sick.  How nice is that?  So there you have it.  A clean and simple gift!!  In under an hour.   Love it!

simple suede3

Until next time!
Happy Stamping!
