Rose Garden Birthday

Image
Hi everyone,

Welcome to my crafty place.  I really enjoy making cards for all occasions and I love sharing them with you.  There has been a lot of birthdays around me lately, so this week's card is also another birthday card.  I've combined some old and new products.

Here's my card using the Rose Garden thinlits (retired) for the hero of this card cut from Copper foil.  The cardstock is Balmy Blue and Whisper White and the patterned paper is from the Garden Impressions paper stack.




The Happy Birthday greeting comes from the matching retired Stamp set called Rose Wonder.  I love how the card turned out in its simplicity.





Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have a great day.






Maraya's Eyeshadow Birthday Card

Hi everyone,

Here's a recent card I made for one of my daughter's friends, to go with the gift below that we gave her.  I love how this turned out and not only how easy they are but also how great & appropriate they are for teenagers.



I've used a variety of cardstocks and glimmer papers for the Eye shadow pans and I've used patterned paper from the Painted with Love specialty dsp.






Here is a picture of the Eye shadow palette gift that I modelled the card on .




Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have a great day.



Jason's Birthday Card

Hi everyone,

I have a quick card to share today which I made for my Brother in Law who had a birthday during the week.

I love not only the simplicity, but also the lighthouse image which goes so well on the Serene Scenery Sky paper.




The cardstock used is Night of Navy and Whisper white (for the stamped image).   The lighthouse comes from the stamp set called High Tide.  I've also used the Happy Birthday thinlits for the Birthday sentiment.




Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have a great weekend.


Stamp Ink Paper #163 - Colour challenge Easel Card

Image
Hi everyone,


Welcome to this week's Stamp Ink Paper challenge.  This week we have colours for you to create with.




Here's my card created as an easel style using cardstock of Powder Pink, Night of Navy, Mint Macaron and Champagne Foil for both the Butterfly die and the Celebrate greeting.  If you think my card looks familiar you would be right.  I had already posted it however we had problems with the Stamp Ink Paper blog and the challenge didn't go live at Challenge 160, so here we are with our colour challenge 163.






The patterned paper is from the Garden Impressions Paper stack.

I've taken photos from different angles to show you how it sits.









Here's a closer look at the Butterfly from the Springtime Impressions thinlits and the Celebrate you dies.



Thanks so much for stopping by today to see our challenge at Stamp Ink Paper.  We would love to see your creations with our colours so I hope to see you there too.


Have a great day.


Christmas in July Cardmaking

Image
Hi everyone,

Today I'm posting some cards from my display and class I held last week for Christmas in July.  This was and always is our first class of the year dedicated to creating Christmas cards.

Here's a pic of my display




These were the cards we actually made on the day, 3 square cards of a similar design using retired Christmas papers.




And then we made 3 flip cards, again using up retired papers.  These are a little harder to photograph properly to show the detail.











We also had some delicious Christmas treats to eat. 





Thanks so much for stopping by today.  We really enjoyed our Christmas card making and I hope you enjoyed seeing our creations.  Have a great day.
