Having a Play Around

It was my friend's daughter's birthday recently and I bought her a dress. I decided I would make the card using the patterns and colours in the material. I chose Cameo Coral, Elegant Eggplant, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue and So Safron.
The stamps were a mixture from the For Everything set, the Retro Remix Stampin Wheel and the heart from the I {heart} Hearts set (all of which are available from the Summer Mini Catalogue. I also threw in a bit of hand drawing to make the flowers resemble those on the dress a little more. To achieve the white areas I used the white Gel Pen. The large purple flower was made using the flower punch and a flower from the Boho Blossums punch and finished off with a rhinestone brad. I was pretty pleased with the result. Not my usual kind of work but it was fun. Let me know what you think.....

Rose Swap for Regionals

Back in November last year I attended my first Regional Seminar in Brisbane where I had a wonderful day with my fellow demonstrators and learnt little techniques to inspire us further. Part of the day was spent swapping with others cards we have made in order to gain more ideas. This is what I came up with. Quite elegant I think. I used A Rose is a Rose stamp set along with words from the Hostess Set Best Yet. The bottom half of the card I used Riding Hood Red ink with my Friendly Words Large Stampin Around Wheel. Some Old Olive grosgain ribbon helped finish it off. I distressed the edge of the vanilla cardstock with my distressing tool.
The colours used were:-
  • Riding Hood Red Cardstock
  • So Safron Cardstock
  • Very Vanilla Cardstock
  • Old Olive Ink
  • Always Artichoke Ink
  • Regal Rose Ink
  • Riding Hood Red Ink

Butterfly Prints

Hello everyone and a Happy New Year to you all. Today I'm showing you a card I recently made for my mother-in-law's friend for her birthday using more lovely items from the Summer Mini Catalogue. I really do like this Butterfly Prints stamp set. What makes this set even nicer is that there is a paper punch which cuts out the butterfly for you and we all love something that makes life easier. I've used whisper white with Brocade Blue for a colour scheme and thrown in a touch of Bashful blue for highlights.
Happy Stamping
