_MG_6361 (Medium)Todays card uses some bazzill cardstock for layering, and a range of Stampin Up goodies that I recently purchased recently.The Die is Stampin Up Happy Birthday thinlits die and the balloons are stamped with Stampin Up Happy Birthday Gorgeous set. I punched them out with a balloon punch by Stampin Up. I put this card quickly together when I was playing around with colour combinations. I am teaching this afternoon at paper Flourish,so I am off to gather all my equipment together and spend an enjoyable afternoon creating ! Til tomorrow…..


Stamping fun

IMG_8881 (Medium)I recently purchased a new stamp set from Stampin Up – Six Sided sampler, along with a hexagon punch, and after i made the card on the previous post I took things a step further, and discarded all my patterned paper to make this card. I used 3 different colours – Smokey slate, bubblegum green and midnight muse ( cardstock and ink pads from Stampin up)and stamped a few hexagons onto cream cardstock  which I then punched out. I had a hexagon template so I inked through that and I punched a hexagon out of my top layer so that the greeting would show through. I tied a little bit of string through the hexagon to draw attention to the sentiment.I have an idea in my head now to do one like this in yellow/orange with some butterflies…….Til tomorrow….

Stamping with Madison Avenue

Leave a comment

IMG_2857 (Medium)This is a nice bright card for a change! All supplies are from Stampin Up –  the stamp set is Madison Avenue, and the butterflies were stamped with a stamp from Clearly for you stamp set. The cardstock is Summer Starfruit and whisper white, and the stamp pads I used were gumball green,tangerine tango and summer starfruit. I added a little bling and some tangerine tango ribbon to finish.I stamped the flower heads separately and fussy cut them so that I could mount them with  foam pads for a bit of dimension.I have a baby card to make for an order tonight, then  feet up in front of the tv!  Til tomorrow….
