Hello all, I have finally been able to have myself some play time and finish off a few tutorials and start to release some new kits.
The first tutorial and pre-cut kit I have just in time for Christmas Gifts, is a cute Christmas Santa Dress Lip Balm Holder Gift Box made from the Stampin’ Up! Dress Up Framelits , I have seen a few different versions of lipstick holders and give credit to Pam Strobel and Brenda Quintana for their initial inspiration, however the gift box wouldn’t fit the Lip Balms I use, so I designed my own sized box to suit Avon Lip Balm and added some finishing touches and my design as a Christmas Santa Suit theme – ready for Festive gift giving. The gift box doesn’t need to just be used for a Lip Balm, but could be used for jewellery, sweet treats or even a great packaging idea for a cash gift.
The Dress Pre-cut Lip Balm Gift Box kit, is also available as a General design (ie non-Christmas design) and I will list this kit shortly - perfect for wedding / party favours etc, if in the meantime you would like to purchase a pre-cut General Dress Lip Balm Gift Box kit, just us the contact me tab with the cardstock colors you would like to request.
I am currently updating some existing kits into current Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper and Cardstock and working on finishing a couple of additional Christmas and Teacher Gift Kits, hopefully these will find their way into my web and ebay stores shortly.

Waving to my new site members, Facebook likers and to those I meet in person at recent craft markets
Apologies first, Its nearing Christmas and is my busiessed time of the year, I have been a busy, busy, very busy bee and not had much time at all to get onto my website, I am also sorry if I have missed repling to any emails, I work full time, then hometo make kits, completing orders and also deal with the usual home life issues, there isnt much energy left except to fall into bed lol to then try and trail through all the scam/junk emails I receive and some genuine emails may get overlooked, if I have missed replying, please don’t hesitate to send me a friendly reminder.
Along with keeping those that have ordered kits online, inspired with their christmas projects, I have been trying to work on my own handmade goodies and gifts for upcoming craft fairs, I do have some goodies to show.
I have managed to work on a couple of new kits that I have added to my webstore. I finally had a play with creating a Punch Art Full body Santa. I used my Santa Punch Art Head design and then pieced together his body, added an embellishment tag and presented him on a Chocolate Block Slider Pocket.
I have my full body santa punch art available as a basic kit, the punch pieces included make two full body santa’s. I am also offering as a separate kit the pieces to make full body Punch Art Santa and also includes the pre-cut , scored cardstock to make a Chocoalte Block Slider Pocket Gift (using a 100g Cadbury Block), the instructions also include additional measurements for a couple of the more common various sized Chocolate Blocks ie Cadbury 200/220g, Cadbury 100g and 100g Lindt Milk Chocolate.
I have also listed in my webstore the Stocking Gift Card Holder die cut kits, one being a basic kit and the other including the Stocking Accent die cut pieces for added decoration.
My latest creation has been made using the Stampin’ Up Petite Purse Die, while my version and design is different, for the initial inspirationI would like to give credit to Debbie Henderson for her version of a reindeer treat box using the Petite Purse die. I have my own preference to punches and die cuts and the look I like to use in my designs, this is my version of Rudolph the Reindeer Petite Purse Gift Box and , I have added a tag using the Moden Label Punch and in this example have filled with Reindeer Spares (Malteasers & Jaffa) for Santa’s eight reindeer & Rudolph.
These were very popular at a recent craft market and after quite a few people asking, I have my version available as a pre-cut cardstock kit, and will be available in my webstore shortly.
Ok, back to the grindstone, the Christmas rush will slow down shortly and I will be back

Note: you are purchasing just the double printed punched Cardstock tabs only – the Catalogue is not included in this purchase - the pictures including the catalogue are provided as an example to show what the tabs look like once they are adhered to your own catalogue. The picture with just the the cover of the Catalogue is just to show which years catalogue these tabs are suited for.

Sorry it has been long time between posts, I had a huge post pre-typed and then managed to not save it. Genius that I am lol.
Now I am back to not knowing where to start, except to say that I have been flat out, time is again flying by and Christmas Kit orders are keeping me really busy, I really need a clone lol.
I am currently having a play with some new christmas projects and as much as I love the Stampin Up 2 Step Owl punch, I have made way too many lately and was looking for something different. I have been wanting to make a different punch art owl style, quite some time ago I saw on another blog a punch art owl made from a circle punch, made by Heather Summers – Love Owls and put this into the back of my mind for something I wanted to create.
Over the weekend, I have had a play session with some new punches from the newly released Stampin Up Holiday Catalogue. For my creation of the Circle Punch Art owl - which I have named him Otto the Owl, I have used the 1 ¾” Circle punch, the sizes could be varied just by altering the circle punches used and because I am working on Festive projects, I added a Santa Hat, Embellishment Tag and added onto a m&m filled Skinny Treat Bag – Introducing Otto the Christmas Owl.
I think Otto is just so cute, it could be just because I have made so many Owl Punch owls, but this little fella is def going to feature in my christmas projects.
I am working on the tutorial and will have Otto the Christmas Skinny Treat Owl available as kit shortly.

Thank you to all those lovely people who commented on and purchased my Chocolate Bouquets from yesterday's Caledonian, Art, Craft and Produce Market. I hope the recipients love these edible goodies.
Dont forget me for your next occasion or function, these Chocolate Bouquets are the yummy-ist alternative to flowers for any occasion. Custom orders a speciality.
I have added a few examples of my Chocolate Bouquets into the Creation Gallery. Hopefully these will give you a few ideas on some of the Edible Bouquets I have available, fully customisable and made to your gift giving requirements.
|Posted on May 5, 2012 at 7:20 PM||comments (0)|
Hi All, I would like to introduce to you a peek at some of the new items I have been working on.
One of the items that has taken my creative fancy is Edible Chocolate Bouquets. I love flowers, but find floral bouquets such a waste when they flop and die so quickly, so when I give a gift I want the recipient to enjoy it for as long as they wish (or can hold off from eating) lol.
The first item I have to show is something I have created for Mother’s Day. These are Flower Pot Rose Ferrero Rocher Chocolates and Hershey Chocolate Kisses Rose Buds, I have the Flower Pots available in three sizes – Mini, Medium (medium pictured) and Large, avail in a range of colors.
Another edible creation is my Turkish Delightful Delights, I have even incorporated Turkish Delights as the vase, this one also has Hershey Chocolate Kisses Rose Buds. This one has been very popular for Mother's Day.
I have a range of bouquets available and have more to show, you can also check out my facebook page for more pics www.facebook.com/kintakards , but in the meantime orders can be taken for made to order items. Unfortuantly, I am not sure how these will handle being posted, so at this stage I have these available for pick up / delivery locally to Ballarat or surronding areas (by arrangement).
I will be back shortly to share some more KintaKards Gift Packaging Ideas I have underway.

Here is something I have created previously, but not yet shown to my blog viewers. This cute little guy or girl (by the bow) was inspired by my Ollie the Owl Punch Art Card and has been made into a Spiral Bound Post It Note Holder.
These make a novel and unique one of a kind gift or keep it all for yourself. Ollie’s body shape makes the outer cover, with the spiral binding at the top flips open to reveil the Post in Note Pad inside.
The cover is cut from sturdy Chipboard, with Ollie’s body being made using various pre-cut cardstock, die cuts and punch pieces to create the design.
I have these available now for sale (made to order) and are currently working on a plan to offer as a make it yourself Cardstock kit. Due to the spiral binding needing to be punched after partual assembly - the make it yourself kit will come partly assembled - including:
• The pre-cut Chipboard cover edges will be pre-painted, The front and back cover pieces will be adhered to the Chipboard and the front die cut piece adhered and the Spiral Binding pre-punched and attached.
All you will need to do is create Ollie’s body by layering the various pre-punched pieces included in the kit and adhere the Post It Note Pad to the inside back. You can add further embelishments as you wish, to give your own Ollie the Post It Note Owl it’s own added character.
Due to the Spiral Binding, any made to order or in kit form will need to be posted as a flat rate Parcel and not as a letter, as most of my kits are. If you purchase mutiple items with this order, you will only pay the one parcel postage price – why not make the most of the postage cost.
Message me if you would like to purchase you very own Pre-Made Ollie the Owl Post It Note Holder and I will also keep you updated on the kit availiability.

Just letting you know that KintaKards has finally opened a Facebook Page.
I would love for you to come along and Like my page, for updates and to see what I have been creating. Please share this page with your friends that may like to make or receive Handmade Gifts. I will start to add all my pictures and the page is currently a work in progress, but should allow greater and easier interation that my website blog. My Page link is www.facebook.com/KintaKards
I don’t actually know where the time has gone. I thought I was on the ball for creating some new (and unfinished) Easter kits, but Easter came and flew by me, with the bunny leaving just a trail of chocolate eggs and now Mother’s Day is fast apporaching at the same speed.
I have a few projects on the go, I am still slowly working on turning my Flower Pot card from previous years into a tutorial & kit. I will hopefully soon have this available. Maybe I should start on Christmas items, as I might actually get around to having them ready for the Festive Season lol.
Over the next few months, I have some new plans and directions for KintaKards Creative Gift Packaging. I will be adding in some new product lines, focussing on personalised Gift Packaging.
I will be back shortly to show you some new creations, and I hope to see you over on my Facebook page.

I am back to show some of the Easter goodies I have been playing with, last Easter I first saw a cute picture of a punch art carrot pouch bunny using the Stampin’ Up! Petal Cone die on Sandy Stamper blog - created by Theresa Vargas.
I have created one of my own, using my very own Buster the Bunny Punch Art Design.
These cute little Buster the Bunny Punch Art Carrot Pouch is a perfect Easter Treat holder, all you need to do is add your choice of treat. maybe alter the colors and these would also make cute Baby Shower favours or even gift packaging for the new arrival.
Finished measurements aprox:11cm (high) x 21cm (wide). Will hold a treat / gift in the pouch of aprox 4mx 3cm x 6cm.
I have these available as a pre-cut Cardstock Kit, with a colored pictured step-by-step tutorial, the kit will make two Buster the Bunny Punch Art Carrot Pouches. I have added these to my webstore for purchase.

Yes – just letting you know that I am still alive and continuing with helping others to be crafty, I am just trying to fit 25 hours into a 24 hour day arghhh.
I have been flat out with work, orders and then trying to prepare for a few craft markets, I recently attended the Werribee Park Masion Craft Market and had a ball – thank you to all the lovely people I met and I hope that you very much enjoy creating with the kits and other goodies you purchased.
I need to focus again on my webstore and I have a few new kits to add, along with some increased blogging to show what I have been doing these last couple of months.
And for something to show, here is a card that I made for a recent card swap, I like cards with multiple purposes and of course what more can we ask for than a card with Chocolate enclosed, I used my template for the mini Santa Chocolate Block (see you can use it for other occasions), I embossed the cover and also grunged it up a bit with some heaver sponging than I usually would, added some gathered ribbon, the butterfly is from the Strength and Hope stamp set and added some adhesive rhinestones and pearls for a bit of bling
The card front opens up, this is where you would write your greeting and then you pull the ribbon bow upwards to reveal the Chocolate Block Slider. The Chocolate Block I have used is the 40g Aldi Chocceur Milk Chocolate Block.
Ok till next time, I promise it wont be as long in between posts.

Happy New Year to you all, Christmas is over and I am on holidays, so have been having a play with some Easter projects (when I haven't been hibernating from the heat), I really dont like the heat.
I really should be finishing off the Easter Projects I started last year, but I have have come up with couple of more designs (and more unfinished projects) - so there is hope folks that I have more to come lol.
Introducing my new "Bobby" the Bunny Punch Art Design. I already have the Pre-Punch Cardstock Kits for these cute little fella's added to my webstore.
I have also been playing with a Gift/Treat Box, using the Stampin Up Bitty Box Die, perfect for Easter Eggs, other chocolatly treats or any other small gift. Perfect for a small Easter gift, or modify the sentiment and use for Baby Shower Party Favours etc.
I have also added the Bobby the Bunny Bitty Box, Acetate and Pre-Punched Cardstock kit avaliable for purchase in my Web store. The colors I have used are Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake with Pretty in Pink, Pear Pizzaz, Perfect Plum and Bashful Blue Cardstock colors.
