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.

Paper:  Real Red, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper

It’s the first day of winter already!!!  And it was cold enough too!!!  I didn’t defrost until about 2pm!!

Although I was cold, I did manage to make a couple of gorgeous cards today.  My new favourite stamp set is Elements of Style.  I love the flowers!!  I have cased this card from Rachael Hecker, a fellow SU Demonstrator.  I inked the main flower stamp using the markers.  I love this technique, looks great and is so easy to do.

I have also fallen in love with black satin ribbon.  It looks so glamorous and silky and shiny!!  I’ve done it in two colour combinations, Real Red and Basic Black, and Certainly Celery and Rose Red.  I hope you enjoy!!

 

Stamp Set:  Elements of Style

Ink:  Basic Black, Real Red and Certainly Celery and Rose Red markers

Paper:  Basic Black, Real Red and Certainly Celery and Rose Red

Accessories:  Oval punch, Black satin ribbon, certainly celery satin ribbon, sponge dauber

(Wow, a card where I didn’t use the Big Shot, miracles do happen!!)
