Medallion Gift Box and Card

Hello to you.
At the moment some of us are having the delight of our children being on school holidays.
I think when they do go back we will need a holiday of our own (LOL).
This month is a busy month for birthdays, really it easy nearly every month.
Here is what I made for my step daughter who turned 23yrs old
and needed to send something special to the UK.
I decided to create a box and a card to match.

I used the Medallion background for the theme on the card and box and the colours are Very Vanilla,
Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede.
The box measures 4 1/8 x 4 1/8" and the depth is almost 2".
If you pop over to Chic n Scratch  you see will where I got my inspiration from.
Center of Medallion stamp cut out and placed in the middle of the box on top of scallop circles.
As you can see I finished it off with Very Vanilla Taffeta ribbon and a pearl.

Here is a close up of the card center in coordinating colours.
I coloured the dots with the Cherry Cobbler marker and then dotted over them with Crystal Effects.
The Happy Birthday is from Well Scripted stamp set. I just love the font from this set.
Well that's all from me on the post.
Enjoy looking.

Birthday Ballons

Morning to you and what a glorious morning it is in West Sydney.
I am posting a card that was for alittle girl who had just turned 5 last month and as we don't see
her very often, we finally did last weekend and personally gave it to her.
I hadn't made a side step card for ages so I decided to have a go.
I had fun decorating this card because it was bright and I had an excuse to use the new stamp set
Up, Up & Away #125034(w), #122757(c) and Big Top Birthday DSP #122348.

The other new stamp set I used was Pennant Parade #125012 (w),#122742 (c) and what is exciting
with this stamp set is, it has a matching punch to go with it. We really love this time saving idea.
My colour pallet for this card was Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise
and Whisper White.
A couple of the ballons have crystal effects on them to give that shiny look.
Well she loved the card and so do I and I hope you out there did too.
Let me know what you think I would love to hear from you.
Mant thanks

Punch Art Sunflower From Stamp Camp

Hi everyone and good day to you.
I am showing you a card I made a little while ago whilst I was at my teams Stamp Camp
and we had a challenge to present a card from Punch Art.
We have very talented ladies in our team that made some fantastic cards.
This is my effort. If it's not that obvious it is a Sunflower for a little girl.
I had included a couple of new things which were the new In Colour cardstock Calypso Carol
and Just Add Cake DSP from the new catalogue.
The beauty of a Punch Art card is that there is not stamping involved.
I hope you enjoyed today's post and until next time.

Just Add Cake DSP
Calypso Carol, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Garden Green Cardstock
On Board Merry Medley Chipboard
Scalloped Circle Punch
Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Set

Chipboard Embellishments

Hello to you all.
Yes it has been awhile since I posted. Life has been so busy lately and soon another special
birthday is coming up which is my son's. This year it will be catered by my lovely sister in law. Isn't she
Today I'm posting a card that incorporated with On Board Merry Medley and used the butterfly as the main feature. I covered it with the In Colours DSP Hostess set and on the edges I coloured it with the white gel pen.
The colours are Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzaz.
Versamark was used for the bird and background.
Well that's all from me for now. Enjoy your weekend.
