Birthday Card…

2nd Post for the day, using same Sketch Layout but with a different look! 
I’ve used the Faux Tiles Technique, except I’ve used Clear Embossing Powder,
instead of Glossy Cardstock.

Want to learn this technique, why not contact me for details when a class is available

All the Embossing Powders from Stampin’ Up!® would have to the best on the market – you can’t beat them.  Check them out – Page 154 of the current Idea Book & Catalogue

Bulldog Clips…

This is the little project I did from the left over bits & pieces of the cards I did for the challenges…. 

I have all my clips covered in all sorts different colour papers, deisgns, ribbons, buttons, rhinestones or whatever I put my hand on at the time.  Gives them an individual look, instead of the dull boring black that we get all time. 

Very quick & very easy!

I have others that I have made, but they belong to little gifts that all match in.
Over the next couple of days I will post the small gift sets etc for you to check out!

Short post today!  Have a great night!

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!
Card 1
Supplies –
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
Rhinestone Brads – Green – Small & Large
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Dimensionals

Card 2
Supplies –
Stamp Set – Circle Circus, Short & Sweet
Cardstock – Very Vanilla, Not Quiet Navy, So Saffron
DSP – Pacific Point
Ink – Not Quite Navy
Punches – Oval, 1″ Circle, 1 3/8″ Circle, 3/4″ Circle, 1 1/4′ Circle
Accessories – Pearls from the Pretties Kit – Small & Large, Snail Adhesive, Dimensionals
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!
