SSC 204…

While all my craft stuff is out & about – usually spread over 2 rooms – thought I would give the challenge over at Stamping 411 a go.  I haven’t done one of these for quiet some time.  Mind you, I am still tossing up about this card.  I think it may be the colours, as I find it very hard to get my head around these colours.  In saying that, I think it would make for a great girl’s card!
Once again Stamping 411 have done all the measurements required for this card.  Don’t you just love that?
Layer 1: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ and folded in half – Rose Red

Layer 2: 4 x 5-1/4″ – Very Vanilla & DSP

Layer 3: 3 x 3″ square, tilted a bit – Pumpkin Pie & Very Vanilla
Layer 4: 3 x 3″ (or other shape) – Rose Red & Very Vanilla

Don’t forget your ribbon/bow combo!

I randomly stamped flower images using Rose Red Ink & Pumpkin Pie for the Butterfly images onto Very Vanilla.  I run the Very Vanilla through the Bigshot using an Embossing Folder.  The DSP was then adhered to the bottom of the card.  I adhered Taffera Ribbom along where the 2 textures meet.
Using Pumpkin Pie Ink, I randomly stamped the flower images & the verse using Rose Red onto the Very Vanilla square & ahered it to the Pumpkin Pie square.  I then stamped a small butterfly onto a spare piece of Very Vanilla using Rose Red, cut it out & set it aside.  I repeated the same with larger butterfly image, except I punched an image using my Punch

Using Pumpkin Pie Ink, I stamped the words onto the 2nd piece of Very Vanilla, Butterflies & flowers images were stamped using Rose Red Ink.  I then adhered the spare butterfly images over the top of the images on the Very Vanilla Cardstock & attached over the top of the 1st square.  The whole lot was then adhered to the Base Card – Rose Red.

To pick the look up & to give it a little bit of depth, I added Rhinestones to the centre of the flowers – gotta love these Rhinestones….  I tied a bow & adhered to card.

Friend to Friend…

In between watching the cricket, golf & car racing, I’ve been playing with my stamps.  Mind you other things should have been done, but hey everything will be there tomorrow….
This card is for the Colour Challenge over at Pals Part Art –  They have some great challenges over there.
I’ve used a couple of my favourite stamps which have been collecting dust on the shelf, so thought I would bring them out for this challenge.
Using the Butterfly Punch, I punched a butterfly in Regal Rose – you can just see a slight outline.  I then stamped a butterfly image from Flight of the Butterfly and Pear Pizzazz.   After punching a hold through both layers, I applied the brad through the centre & adhered the butterflies to the card.

Tech Class…

G’Day Stampers,
It has been quiet some time since my last post, but hopefully that everything has settled, I will bet back in the routine of positing more frequently.
This is one of the cards we did at our Tech Class last Tuesday – Dry Embossing!  Why not give it a go!  It is a lovely effect, a great one for the male/males in your life & just a little different.
I’ve cased the card from August Stampin’ Up!s® Monthly Magazine “Impressions” – one of the great advantages in being a SU Demon.
