Stamping fun

1 Comment

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….

Stampin Up Gingham Garden

IMG_8879 (Medium)I am back after a few days break, we had lovely weather and did a lot of walking and relaxing and I have come back with batteries recharged and itching to get started on lots of new ideas! Todays card is as clean and simple as I can do – I punched some hexagons out of the patterned paper with a stampin up hexagon stamp, and stamped a couple of them with the matching stampin up six-sided sampler stamp set. I had some fun rearranging them on the front of the card and added a few buttons for texture and interest. Til tomorrow….

Simple sympathy card

Leave a comment

Quite often the last thing we want to do is make a sympathy card when we need one. I find it’s always handy to have a couple put away for when they are needed, and my rule with sympathy cards is the simpler the better.The card I have done here is a perfect example of my theory. I have used stampin up cardstock – early espresso, crumbcake and very vanilla, and a stampin Up stamp which looks ok even though it’s not coloured – any simple stamp will do – and a simple seam binding bow.I have also subtly inked around all the edges with a brown ink pad ( in this case Stamp in up Early espresso). I had a lovely lesson with my ladies this morning – it’s so good to see them every month, and they are always so good even when I might be a bit vague, as I was this morning – I had a sick son at home, he seems a little better this afternoon, so all is well in my world again! Til tomorrow….

Mainly punches

Leave a comment

The colours on this card are similar to yesterdays card,just swapped them around a bit. I have used an assortment of punches to make a bunch of flowers, and added a ribbon. the cardstock is Stampin Up – Poppy Parade, daffodil delight, and very Vanilla. I also used my stampin up Vintage wallpaper embossing folder, decorative label punch and four frmes stamp set.Martha Stewart lace doily punch was used down the side of the card. Two days off now, so hope to relax a bit in the card room.. til tomorrow….
