Trying Something Different

Hello and happy week to you.
Today I wanted to share with you something I just wanted to try which I saw on a Stampin' Up! forum.
A photo was shared by a Rochelle Blok and I had to have a go at doing my own version.
It did take a while, but it was worth it to see the end result.

Blushing Bride is the main color used for this card and Just Add Cake co ordinate well.
I ran it through the Big Shot with the Top Note Die Cut, Lots Of Tags and Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder for the background.
I love the pretty co-ordinating ribbon to make it that extra special.
Well I hope you enjoyed my post today and be sure to keep checking for new and creative ideas.

Birthday Workshop Cards

Hello fellow readers.
I have to share today a couple of cards that my dear friends and I made for a Workshop on the weekend.
Based on kids birthday cards, I thought it would be nice to do similar cards for a Boy & a Girl.
I love bright colors and I always think that is what kids are drawn to.

Using the Up, Up and Away Stamp set was the theme for the day and I got my inspiration from the Ideas Book and Catalogue pg. 34.
I thought it would make a change to use markers rather than ink pads to give the opportunity to make the cards more personal.
It was a fun time had by all and a BIG Thank you to my Hostess Leisa for allowing us to be creative at her place.
Well until next time, happy making :)

Happy Birthday Nanna

Hello fellow readers and welcome to my latest post.
This week my dear old Nanna turned 88 yrs of age.
I wanted to do a card of the colours she enjoys and this is what I came up with.

I have copied from a previous post of the same lay out.
I of course added Spice Cake DSP to the mix and used Array Of Sunshine Stamp set for the background.
She absolutely loved it I'm pleased to say.
With this card you can see a lot of layering.
On the Pool Party card stock I used the Stripes embossed folder.
I also cut out the stamped flower and attached it with a heart brad (Non SU) through 3 pieces of card in the center.
The stamped Happy Birthday is from Perfectly Penned in More Mustard.
I'm glad you popped by and I'm sure I'll have more to talk about.

Stamp Sets:Array of Sunshine, Perfectly Penned
Ink:More Mustard, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz
Card Stock:Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Pool Party
DSP: Spice Cake
Other: Scalloped Edge Punch, Stripe Textured Embossing folder, Heart Brad(non SU).

You Are Loved

I know Valentines Day has long gone, but I wanted to show you a card I made for my hubby using this beautiful stamp set "You Are Loved". This stamp set will no longer be available after the 31st of March, so be
Quick not to miss out.

 I didn't want to go the traditional full on red, so I used Old Olive, More Mustard, Soft Suede, Real Red and Very Vanilla. With those colours in mind I coloured the stamp in self.
 I wanted to add a bit of sparkle, so I punched flowers from the Fancy Flower punch which I then cut into heart shapes.(Good tip if you don't own the Heart punch)
Well I hope your enjoyed this post.
Until next time.
Markers: Real Red, More Mustard, Old Olive and Soft Suede
C/stock:Textured Old  Olive, Smooth Soft Suede, More Mustard and Very Vanilla
Stamp Set: You Are Loved
Other: Glimmer paper- Red, Fancy Flower punch, Sml Heart punch & Dimensionals
