Makayla's Creation

Images © 1990-2008 Stampin' Up!®

My daughter is going to a birthday party today, and this is the card I helped her make. The stamp set is Birthday Whimsy (a SAB set) and I have it for sale. The colours are Pink Passion, Orchid Opulence and Lovely Lilac. We've stamped the images on Whisper White cardstock and then cut them out and popped them up on dimensionals on the Orchid Opulence cardstock.

Makayla is very much looking forward to going to "Paige's house" for the party (she's been asking to go all week) and I know she is going to love the jumping castle! Lets just pray the weather stays fine!

Spring Mini Catalogue

The Spring Mini is here! I've been poring over my personal copy for weeks now, drooling over the beautiful new stamp sets and accessories! Now it's your turn. I've got my customer copies and I will be sending them out to those on my mailing list for FREE! If you would like your very own FREE copy to drool over, please contact me.

I've recently had a team meeting and this is the card we made. It's a CASE of a card in the mini. The base card is in Old Olive, the designer series paper is from the mini and is called Holiday Harmony, the ribbon is Purely Pomegranate double stitched and the brads are silver. The original card in the mini uses a chipboard star, on this card we've used the large star punch on some of the Holiday Harmony paper to create a similar effect. I've decided it's probably time to start making Christmas cards, only 5 months till Christmas from today!!! I hope this one inspires you!

Return of the Stamping Cupboard

Images © 1990-2008 Stampin' Up!®

Well, I have my cupboard set up again (not the rest of the room though)! And as soon as I got everything organised and back in the cupboard I made this card for my hubby's birthday! I got the inspiration from my upline Kirrily, and I'm very happy with how it turned out (even hubby was impressed). It was a very quick one too, it only took about 5-10 minutes (still made with lots of love though!), it just came together all on its own.

I've used the Polka Dots and Petals stamp set (pg. 47) and the So Many Sayings hostess set. I've stamped some of the Polka Dots and Petals images randomly on Whisper White cardstock, then mounted that on Not Quite Navy cardstock. I attached some Chocolate Chip Taffeta ribbon (pg. 146) and some Hodgepodge (pg. 144) to the Not Quite Navy piece and then mounted that onto the Close to Cocoa cardstock. Finally, I stamped the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock and punched out with my oval punch (pg. 142) and inked around the edges with my ink pad. The ink colours are Chocolate Chip, Not Quite Navy and Close to Cocoa.

I hope you like it!

Slow Progress

I've learnt something about DIY,it can be very slow! So I still can't stamp unfortunately but I thought I'd show you some before shots!

I told you it desperately needed painting!!!

This is me sugar soaping, it took hours! Hopefully I'll have some after photos soon!
