Wot The….

You well may ask….
I somehow forgot to post the 2nd half of this Thank You Card… which I did a couple of weeks ago & have only just come across the pics as I was tiding up my photo files….
This is a “Bookmark” which fits neatly over the corner of your books, etc.  I created it with Stampin’ Up’s® DSP, which means you can have it facing either side…..
Supplies –

Cardstock – Whisper White, Tangerine Orange
DSP – Kiwi Kiss
Accessories – Snail Adhesive

How easy are these?  There are all kinds of designs & patterns you are able to use on them, including different techniques….

Here is the cards with the Bookmarks attached!  What a great gift!
Until next time, enjoy!

In Colours….

G’Day Stampers,
I’ve just finished creating a set of 6, 5 x 5 Gift Cards and Wallet for a friend.  I’ve used all the Australian Current Stampin’ Up!® “In” Colours.  I then made envelopes to suit the size & to match the cards.
I got to use my new Butterfy Punch which is in the latest Stampin’ Up!® current Mini-Catalogue.
Don’t forget this Mini ends 31st March!
Supplies –
Stamp Set – Great Friend
Ink – Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze
Cardstock – Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango,  Kiwi Kiss,
Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
DSP – Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron,
Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette
Punches – Butterfly, Eyelet, Large Oval, Scallop Oval
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon,
Mini-Dots, Uni Ball Gel Pen
Non-SU – Rhinestones
Gosh, I hope I haven’t forgotten anything.
I created a Wallet specially to hold the cards, which closes of its own accord, so I didn’t need to use anything to hold it closed.
I typed Mary’s name on the pc & then punched it out using the Large Oval Punch 
Using the butterfly stamp from “Great Friend”, I’ve stamped the image onto the card, then again onto Whisper White, cut this image out & using mini-dots, adhereded to card.  You can’t see it in the pics – sri
Card & Matching Envelopes – Kiwi Kiss & Riding Hood Red

‘ello, ‘ello…

Hello Fellow Stampers,

I sat myself down this morning to &amp & come up with a male card, but looking at it, you could use it for either male or female.  Combined with the great little stamp set “Hello Again” from Stampin’ Up’s current Mini-Catalogue & a FREE Stamp Set “Whimiscal Words”  from Stampin’ Up’s Sale-a-Bration catalogue, this makes for a great card!
I’ve really gone out of my comfort zone here, but check it out for yourselves –
Supplies –
Stamp Set – Hello Again, Whimiscal Words
SU Write Markers – Only Orange,Garden Green, Basic Black
Card Stock – Very Vanilla, Going Gray, Garden Green, Night of Navy
DSP – Kiwi Kiss Patterns
Accessories – Anywhere Glue, Crystal Effects
Non-SU – Buttons

To use the different colours for the flower, I’ve gone with Stampin’ Up’s Write Markers.  These are great for when you want to individually colour your image.
To bring the whole card together, I’ve opted for a coloured button. 
Only because I couldn’t find my Linen Thread, I’ve cut a very fine piece of Very Vanilla card stock & threaded it threw the button. 
To adhere the button to the middle of the flower & to hold the thin strip of Very Vanilla card stock in place I’ve used SU’s Crystal Effects.
For the greeting, I’ve used SU Black Marker to colour the word “Wish”.  See the RHS to see how to earn your own FREE set!
If you have any queries on how to make this card or any supplies I’ve used, please email me as I am only to happy to answer them for you.

Challenge SSC129…

Heya Stampers,
I have just completed a challenge & thought I would show you my end results.  In fact I made 2 cards using the same sketch, except I turned one to the side.  As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew what stamp set I wanted to use, but had no idea of colours until I matched the colours with the patterened paper!

Stamp Set – Circle Circus, Short & Sweet
Cardstock – Very Vanilla, Not Quiet Navy
DSP – Kiwi Kiss
Ink – Garden Green
Punches – Oval, 1″ Circle, 1 3/8″ Circle, 3/4″ Circle

When I saw this DSP in the catalogue, I didn’t much go for it, but after working with it & seeing the end result, I LOVE it!
Why not have a go at the sketch yourself & have a bit of fun at the same time!

Tomorrow I will show you what I did with some of the left over cardstock & paper!
