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.

Pink, Pink & More Pink…

I am trying very hard to get back into the swing of things, but it is not working that great.  Please bear with me for the next couple of months or so…………
I received a couple of little stamp sets today & so of course I had to have a little play & did a very simple easy 5 minute card to show you this lovely lovely SU greeting!  Best of all, it is FREE from SU when you spend over $100! Not hard to do.

Have I told you lately how much I love the new SU Series Designer Series Paper, Page 135.  Just in case you missed it, I love working with this paper!  No matter what you make, this DSP always comes up looking so fresh & pretty!
I’ve stamped the Greeting in “Riding Hood Red“, torn “Whisper White”, ensuring that I leave a small edge.  I then sponged “Pretty-in-Pink” from the “SU Pastels” to add a bit of hightlight to the torn edge.
