10 December 2011 – Birthday time!

I’ve been making a few non-Christmas cards at the moment and it’s nice to do something different!!  It’s one of my friend’s 30th birthday and I’ve made a card which I have cased from Mary Pretty.  I’ve done the same papers as I just love the Beau Chateau DSP.

Mary has done a video on how to do the flower and it’s so easy!!  Just punch out the border strip, score every 1/4″, and fold, and there you go!!  A gorgeous flower!!    Happy Birthday, Leanne!

26 September 2011 – Class Cards

Hi everyone,

Isn’t spring a lovely time of year!!  Not too hot, not too cold, just right!!

Here are a couple of cards that we did at my recent stamp club.  The girls enjoyed making them!!  The first is a petal card, thanks to a great tutorial on Splitcoaststampers by Beate Johns (click here for the link).  I felt it wasn’t too hard to make and looks pretty good, if I do say so myself!!  I love this paper too!! (and the Perfect Pennants die!!)

Here’s a picture of it open.

The other card that we made used my other favourite new paper, Mocha Morning Specialty.  I love the velvet feel to a couple of the pages!!

I did case this card but I can’t find where from, but thank you!!

I used markers to ink the stamp and I think it came out really well.  I love this technique!!
