'P' Party

(Just noticed I used all 'P' things to create this card - what are the odds!)

Hi, just popping past to share a quick card I made for a young relative of mine.

I kept it reasonably simple and let all those bright bold colours do the talking. I made the pattern in a snap, using my petite pennant punch - easy peesy! The background is also embossed with the perfect polka dots EB folder.

Thanks for looking

TSOT #160 - Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to our blog hop! The designers at Try Stampin' On Tuesday have created a little blog hop for you to enjoy. Also there is a prize up for grabs if you go through the hop and leave a comment on each designers blog. You would have come from Sara H and her stunning card.

Anyway, onto my card:

I decided to use the twist with this weeks card, which was to add a masculine touch - to add to my depleting stash. I did still want it to be bright, so I pulled out my colour coach and settled on old olive, night of navy and daffodil delight.

I kept it rather CAS and with little bulk, as guy's dont really seem to always appreciate huge amounts of embellishments and it's always helpful when a card can be sent as a standard letter :)

I used my six sided sampler stamp set and stamp-a-ma-jig to create the panel and my sentiment is from sweet essentials.

We would love to see you play along with us this week, you dont have to use the twist, just use the sketch as your inspiration.

Your next stop on the hop is Shell and her adorable creation.

Thanks for looking and happy hopping

Love Birds

Hello! Once again I am pulling a card from my long over due 'to blog' folder! This card was for my brother and sister in-law for their wedding.

I think last year every engagement and wedding we went to, the couple received a card with these 2 love birds!! I think they also got some variant on this colour combo as well - but I'm a believer it something works - stick to it! I do however love this now retired baja breeze dsp and the branch the birds are sitting on is created using the adorning accents. 

Thanks for looking and any question, just ask :)

JAI #206

Hi, I made this card for this weeks challenge at Just Add Ink. We have to use items from Stampin' Up!'s Sale-a-Bration. I decided to use the banner punch:

I have cased elements from a card I saw (if this was you please let me know and I'll add a link to you :) 

I wanted to re-try the chalkboard technique - I really think I'm still too clean though. My colours are real red, coastal cabana & soft suede, not a combo I would pick myself, but thats the beauty of the DSP from Stampin' Up!

Thanks for looking

Sweet Baby

Hi, today I have 2 baby cards, which I made a while ago.

Both of these card were super simple to create. I found these tags in my stash (I have no idea where they are from - sorry) and all I did was mount them onto a white base, which I had embossed, added a sentiment  and some twine and pearls and I was done!

I think they are pretty cute - what do you think? Which one is your favourite?

Thanks for looking

Fast Ombre

Today I'm sharing a card I made a while ago. I loved the ombre effect and tried it with some pink card I had.

I think my colours are rose red, regal rose (R) & Pretty in pink (R) and I stamped the flower from Fast and Fabulous (R) in jet black staz on ink. I love this card and it was very easy to create - always a bonus!

Any questions, just ask and thanks for looking.
