SC 089/13…

It was my turn to set the challenge this week at Sunny Challenges & Creations.  I went with the theme of “BABY“.

This could be anything from cards, 3-D Projects or even a Scrapbook page.  In fact I very nearly did a page, but my mind went blank at the last moment.  I even had a hard time creating my card for the challenge.  Do you ever get something in your mind, knowing that it is all wrong, but not knowing where to go?  This happened to me. 


Once I had finished my card, I suddenly realised that I had created the whole card on top of my catalogue which was opened at the page the stamp set appeared on.  I am just lucky that I didn’t get glue, etc all over the page……

My card is a little different as I don’t really have any “baby” stamps, except for my wheel.  As bicycles seem to be popular at the Handmade Expo I attend, I thought it perfect timing to catch up on  my baby cards.

For the inside of my card, I cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock back to 5 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ or 14cm x 9.5cm & adhered to the inside Base Card.  I cut an upside down “V” into a 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ or 2cm x 14cm piece of DSP  to form a pennant shape & adhered to top of Whisper White Card.

Card # 2…

… from our “Misc Card” class last month – August.


With Father’s Day coming up, it was perfect timing to create a card especially for Dad or the male in your life.  It is the perfect card for anyone who happens to play a “little” golf.  Is there such a word as “a little golf”?

We used the beautiful new Regals Designer Series Paper Stack for this card & would you believe it, one of the designs looked just like an image in the stamp set, so of course, we had to use it together.

Since the change to the Colour Families, I am really enjoying the Regals Family & am going to have to put a halt to the whole lot soon or everyone will be sick of them & think there is no other colours.  They are just so lovely!

SC 085/13…

I am a little late in posting my card for our challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations was given to us by Kris.  We have the Sketch only!

Not only am I late in posting, but unfortunately I don’t even have any measurements for you as I sold the card at the Handmade Expo last Sunday.  I didn’t realise it had been sold until I just went looking for it…..  Always the way.

I will try & remember what I used on it from the photo & memory.  I originally found a lovely card created using this Origami Dress.  I then traced it back to the Website.  Me being me, I did alter the measurements to suit the card.  Laura is one talented stamper.  Click on the word “Laura” & it will take you direct to the video.

Lately I seem to be creating a lot of cards with Early Expresso & the Regal Colour Family.  Since Stampin’ Up! revamped their colours, I am loving the Regals AND I am not a Regal Lover.

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Express Yourself
Ink – Rose Red
Cardstock – Early Expresso, Whisper White, Rose Red
DSP – Designer Series Paper Stack – Regals
Punches – Scallop Oval, 1 3/4″ Circle, Modern Label, Word Window
