Thank you with Butterflies

I love to make a card and to send them knowing I made it.
From the Summer Mini I used the Butterfly Prints set and punch which is really handy to save time on cutting.
This is going to a lovely couple who allowed for my family to stay in their home whilst on the Sunshine Coast
last week and made us feel right at home.
So here is what I came up with.

The colour combo with the Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze and So Saffron gave it that soft look.
I brought out a favorite stamp set Baroque Motif as this is a very versatile stamp set. With this set I used Versa mark just to give a faint impression.

Stamp Sets:Butterfly Prints, Baroque Motifs and Warm Words
Cardstock:Kraft,Baja Breeze, So Saffron,Whisper White
Ink:Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Choco Chip and Versa mark
DSP:Bella Rose
Other: Copper Hodge Podge,Chocolate Chip Taffata Ribbon, Scollaped Oval Punch, Oval Punch

Thanks for dropping by.

Birthday Cupcakes

Good afternoon, to you all. Today my twin girls were invited to go to a Skating Party and one had been before and the other had not. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves despite the cold and a fall. Not too bad really. So of course, I had to make a card for the occassion and stumbled upon Crazy For Cupcakes, as
I feel it's very girlie.

The colours used on this card was Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood, Choco Chip, Regal Rose and Whisper White.
I used watercolour to colour in the cupcake and did frosting on the sprinkles. It's good enough to eat.

Stamps: Crazy For Cupcakes & Happy Moments
Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Chocolate chip, Whisper White
DSP:Bella Rose
Ink:StazOn, Regal Rose, Choco chip,Pink Pirouette
Other: 1-1/4" Pink Pirouette Ribbon, Glitter mixed with white embossing powder.

Birthday Time Again

Well it seems to be a time for a few birthdays ans so I got started last night and continued onto today
to get them finished and onto my blog.
I have also been away to Queensland for a mini break which was really lovely and very hot!!!!
Anyway, about the card.
I got my inspiration from  a lady who has Keepstampin and I thought the colour combo was nice and mature looking and of course I have twicked it to put my touches to it.

This card is for my Nanna who will be 86 yrs old next month.
I actually used Versamark with the birdcage on the black, but it didn't come out in the photo. I also did some frosting on the birdcage to give a bit of bling.

The supplies used are Happy Moments (from SAB) and Baroque Motifs Stamp Sets .Black, Kiwi Kiss & Whisper White cardstock.Versa Mark,Staz On and Kiwi Kiss Inks.Mixed Glitter and White embossing  powder onto 2 way glue to make frosting.

Thanks for looking.

Sweet Birthday

As I had such fun with making my husbands Valentines card I thought I would continue with the same
stamp set and make a little girl a birthday card.
My son has been invited to a birthday party this weekend and I like how colourful you can go with the sweets and jellybeans you can stamp inside the gumball machine. Great for a childs card.

A Pocket Full Of Thank you's

Wow another posting in the same day.
I would like to share with you all a card made to say thank you to my grandparents for a Birthday gift using the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set.
I haven't used this set much, but I thought it appropriate for this sort of occasion and I think it's quite pretty.
So here's a look.
Stamp Set: Pocket Silhouettes
Cardstock: Not Quite Navy and Whisper White
DSP: Urban Oasis
Ink: Not quite navy, Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze
Other: Satin Ribbon in Kiwi Kiss, dauber

I have layered a few of the DSP's from the same group and roughed up the edges to give it an old look.
With the stamped Whisper White I decided to use a dauber with Baja Breeze around the edges, so it could blend in.
Thanks again for looking.
