29 October 2012 – Candlelight Gorgeousness!!!

I am in love with the Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP in the Holiday Catalogue.  It is just gorgeous!!!!  There are two sheets of flocked window sheets which are just beautiful!!!

I cased today’s card from fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Stephanie Robnett on a demo only facebook group.  It’s not exactly the same but that doesn’t matter.  I like it!!

I really love the Apothecary Accents framelits which I used to cut out the centre piece.  They can even cut through the glimmer paper.

I coloured the flowers using blenders pens and ink pressed into the lid of the ink pad.  I’m not very good at doing shading but I think I did ok on this one.

Ink:  Black Staz-on, Real Red, Gumball Green

Paper:  Naturals White, Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP

4 October – Birthday Box

The birthday box was the first one that I made.  I’m really happy with how it turned out.  I used my favourite framelits, Labels Collection and the co-ordinating stamp set, Apothecary Accents.  You can’t really tell in the photo but I used the new Festive paper-piercing pack on the Midnight Muse layer.  Such a nice touch!!

Here are the cards that I made to go into the box.

 

 

I used the same sketch for each card as it was easy to duplicate.  I really like the Comfort Cafe DSP and how it matches with the new in-colours, Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit.
