Happy Birthday

I’ve been playing with my stamps & doing heaps of masking – love the look it gives your cards!

After creating a mask, I randomly stamped images in Melon mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tangerine, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive & Tempting Turquoise Inks using the images from Summer Silhouettes Stamp Set & creating a rainbow of colours.

I then decided it needed a little bit of a lift, so I applied 2-Way Glue down the edge of the mask with a ruler & poured over Dazzling Diamonds.  Instant lift!

I stamped “Happy Birthday” from the Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink.  Of course, I ended up with a little bit of a black smudge, so randomly scattered Rhinestones around the card.  Problem solved!

The Dragonfly I’ve had sitting in my pile of stash for some time & thought it would suit the card perfectly.

This piece was layered onto a piece of Basic Black Card & then to the Base Card – Whisper White.

A quick, but effective card.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’



Challenge # 4

I am very late in posting our challenge this month – swamped with “stuff”.Challenge-#3---April

Along with the sketch, I challenged my ladies/customers to use the colour “Purple“!  This is a colour that everybody seems to like, although it is way out of my comfort zone.  In saying that I have been challenging myself to use colours that I don’t usually go for.  I am finding that I am really enjoying creating with these “different’ colours.

Along with the colour “Purple“, I also pulled out an old favourite that has been sitting on the shelf gathering dust & that is “Summer Silhouettes“.  I had an idea in my head & think I managed to pull it off.

004wm-blogFor my card I decided to go with Blackberry Bliss & Whisper White.  Half way through creating the card, I decided that I wanted to add a couple of other colours so I consulted my trusty “Colour Coach” & went with Old Olive & Soft Sky.  I am really loving the colours of this card.

Bag of Cards

I created this bag some time ago for a set of cards. It will fit 4 standard size Australian size cards. I did see something familiar on Pinterest or via Google I am not too sure now. Of course, when I went looking for it to give credit, I am unable to find it as I didn’t save it either. I do know that when I saw the photo I had to have a go at recreating it to suit our size cards.

Today’s Bag & cards use my favourite DSP – Polka Dot Parade which I am really going to miss.  The set of cards was actually one of my August Monthly Kits using the lovely little, but oh so versatile Stamp Set – Summer Silhouettes.

I do have instructions for the bag, but first I have to find them & will post in a couple of days along with another sample.
