Especially for You…

It seems like forever since my last post, but with the wedding season upon us, invitations & receptions have been taking up all my spare time.
 
Today’s post is one I created a couple of weeks go & thought I would share with you.  It is a very easy layout but one that can be changed out to whatever you want using different stamps, colours & even DSP.
 
In fact, this card would make a perfect card for Mum, especially with Mother’s Day just around the corner.

Sending Sympathy….

Our card today is a Triple Layer Card we created in Crafty Creations at the Caloundra Community Centre this afternoon.   The ladies loved it, although we did have a few accidents – ink accidents, ie….

Not only could your imagination go wild thinking of different placements for the front, but they are an easy card to create as well as having a every effective card at the end.

I don’t usually create bright cards, but tend to use the Neutral & Subtle Colour Families.  When doing classes I like to think “outside the square“, so to speak which means I tend to take into account what each person likes including colours & styles. It would be a very boring world if we liked all the same, wouldn’t it?

Supplies used to create this card –
Stamp Set  –  Stippled Blossoms (C) – 126747, Petite Pairs(C) – 122497
Ink  –  Pink Pirouette – 126956, Primrose Petals – 126858, Old Olive – 126953, Wild Wasabi – 126959
Cardstock  –  Whisper White – 106549, Old Olive – 106576
Punches  –  Large Oval – 119855
Ribbon  –  3/8″ Stitched – Primrose Petals – 126844
Accessories  –  Big Shot – 113439, Snail Adhesive – 104332, Stampin’ Dimensionals – 104430, Glue Dots – 103683

Stippled Blossom….

Today’s post is one of the cards I’ve created especially for the Handmade Expo.

I’ve used a very basic layout, but sometimes this sort is the best as I like the stamps to tell the story, especially this beautiful Stamp Set – Stippled Blossoms.  In fact, it has proved to be amongst one of my popular sellers.

I created this card way back in March when I finally managed to purchase the stamp set.  All the cards I have created with it, I’ve received lovely feedback.  Yep, it has taken me that long to post it.

Supplies –
Stamp Set              Stippled Blossom – 126747(C), Made for You – 126342(C)
Ink                           So Saffron – 126957, Bashful Blue – 126961,
Wild Wasabi – 126959, Not Quiet Navy – 126971
Cardstock              Whisper White – 106549, Night of Navy – 106577
So Saffron – 108611, Marina Mist – 121682

Mother’s Day…

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, in fact this Sunday, I thought I would share with you a couple of cards I did for the Handmade Expo I attend every month.  These are held on the first Sunday of each month, excluding Public Holidays.

The cards proved to be very popular & in fact
sold all but 3 of them within 20 minutes which stunned & amazed me.  Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!!!  I hope your mum’s enjoy receiving them as much as I enjoyed creating them.

I did create them using the Polka Dots Parade Designer Series Paper & did a couple in each colour which I don’t normally do. I only have photos of the Rich Razzleberry & Daffodil Delight to show you, but you will get the idea.  This paper would have to be my favourite in the current catalogue & have created heaps of “stuff” using this DSP.  Combine it with the Stippled Blossoms Stamp Set & you have a winner!

Today’s card is using the Rich Razzleberry DSP combined with Daffodil Delight Cardstock.

Stippled Blossom…

Inside Card…

… has been on my Wish List since I first laid eyes on it & finally managed to order it the other day.  Believe me, if you haven’t purchased this gorgeous set, do yourself a favour & buy it.  You will not regret it.  This stamp set is 2-step stamping & stamps such a beautiful, clean, clear image
that you will want to stare at it & wonder why it took you so long to get it.

My card is another we did for Crafty Creations & has been sitting in a box half finished for about 6 months.  I knew what I wanted to create in my head but just couldn’t get it on paper.  I wanted to use the Labels Collections Framelits to create my frame but when I went to get them, I suddenly realised I didn’t have them & had never purchased them.  Do you ever think you have purchased something only to find that you didn’t?  Mind you, I didn’t believe it until I had such a mess & everything had been pulled down from the shelves that I came to the realisation that how could I not have them?

I’m really happy with this card & think I will be creating more like it in the future.  It leaves itself open to all sorts of possibilities.
