14 October 2012 – Congrats!

One of my downline has just announced that she’s having baby no. 2, which is exciting news!!  (Even though it means she will miss convention next year, really I think she should have timed that better!!)

So I needed to send her a congratulations card.  I was inspired by the Birds of a Feather Designer Series Paper.  I wasn’t really into this DSP from the pictures in the Catalogue but seeing as I have earnt some free paper from a promotion earlier in the year, I thought I would get it.  Well I am really impressed!!  It is very nice and perfect for baby cards!

I’ve also used some of the free ribbon from this months’ special.  Check out my Specials page for the details.

As I mentioned the other day, I don’t really have a lot of kiddie or baby stamps but I do have some with the right words so here is my card.

Stamp sets:  Party Time

Ink:  Primrose Petals

Paper:  Island Indigo, Primrose Petals, Whisper White, Birds of a Feather DSP.

Accessories:  Big Shot, Lacy Brocade embossing folder, Window Frames framelits, Festive Paper Piercing pack, Primrose Petals stitched satin ribbon.

28 April 2012 – April Stamp Club

Last weekend we had stamp club, so I thought I would share our cards with you.  I focused on some of the new stamp sets and fabulous new tools available in the latest Autumn Winter mini catalogue.

This first one focuses on the Adorning Accents edgelits and the matching embossing folder, including the co-ordinating stamp set, Bordering on Romance.  Once you get the hang of the edgelits, they are very easy to use and look absolutely fabulous!! I did case this one but I can’t find where.

Stamps:  Bordering on Romance, Party Time

Ink:  Blushing Bride, Rose Red, Staz on Black, Pear Pizzazz

Paper:  Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White

Accessories:  Adorning Accents Edgelits, Big Shot, Adorning Accents Embossing folder, Basic Pearls, blender pens, organza white ribbon

The next card is cased from here.  I used it as my inspiration but I used different colours and different stamps.  I made the rosette using the new Simply Scored which is great.  It makes making rosette’s so easy!!

 Stamp Sets:  Word Play

Ink:  Versamark

Paper:  Beau Chateau DSP, Soft Suede, Pink Pirouette, Marina Mist

Accessories:  Lace Ribbon Border punch, 1 3/4″ scallop circle punch, 1 1/4″ circle punch, Scallop Circle #2 die, Very Vanilla Seam binding ribbon, subtles buttons.

I had some issues with the single photo that I took, so the next card is in a group of three.  I couldn’t decide on which colour combination to go with, so I had a couple of attempts.  I went with the card in the middle, using the gorgeous new Twitterpated DSP.  Love it!!  I also used the new Tea Shoppe stamp set which is so cute!  I did case this card but again, can’t find the link!!
