13 February 2012 – Birthday Cards

Hi everyone,

As you may know, I’m a member of the Extra Special Aussie Demonstrators (ESAD) on Facebook.  It’s for Australian and New Zealand Demonstrators to share and chat about Stampin’ Up!  One of the things we do is Birthday Fairies.  Once you sign up, you go on the list to send cards when it is someone’s birthday.  I had mine last month and I had so much happy mail!!  What a talented bunch!!

Here’s a card that I’ve made for one of the February birthdays.  I recently got the Medallion stamp after umming and ahhing for quite a while but I think I’m in love with it now!!  I cased it from here.  I added a bit of glitter paper as you always need a bit of bling!!

Here’s a close up.

6 February 2012 – Wedding Card

It’s been such a hot day today that I stayed in the air conditioning and worked on a couple of ideas for cards for my next stamp club in a weeks time.  I recently purchased the Medallion stamp set which I have seen used on so many lovely cards and thought it was about time that I inked it up.

I just love Splitcoaststampers for inspiration (click here).  I found this great card by cgpop and gave it a wedding twist, seeing as I’m not ready to start Christmas cards just yet.  I’ve done a bit of embossing in white for the medallion and then gold for the sentiment.

Here’s a close up .
