Ashley's 18th Birthday Card

Image
Hi everyone,

Today I wanted to share a Birthday card made for a friend of my daughter.  There are a number of birthdays very close all turning 18 at this time and I have been kept busy keeping up with them all.

Here's Ashley's card.





Her favourite colour is Red so i went with the classic Red Black & white theme.  I've made it in a Gatefold style and its similar to the one I made for my daughter Anna.  I've used silver foil and the Large Number dies for the 18.  Here's a closeup.





This is a picture of the inside of the card.



And the card again.





Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I've been up to.  What do you think of the card.  I value your opinion and I love hearing from you.

Have a great day.

Stamp Ink Paper #190 - Best of Luck

Image
Hi everyone,

Welcome to this week's challenge at Stamp Ink Paper



Here's my card for this weeks challenge.  I focussed on "Best Wishes" rather than the Lucky clover.




Cardstock used is Mint Macaron, Whisper White, Old Olive plus champagne and silver foil.  I'm sorry for the poor photography.  I couldn't get the effect of the foil leaves to show up against the pearly flowers in the background papers.  The stamps and dies I've used are Floral Frames with Foliage Frames framelits and Stitched Shapes framelits.  The paper is from the Share what you Love specialty pack.





I tried to capture a closeup below of the framed greeting with all the leaves surrounding it.





Thanks so much for joining us this week at Stamp Ink Paper.  We look forward to seeing your creations in the gallery.

Have a great day.

Stamp Ink Paper #188 - Designer's choice featuring Winter Woods Stamp set

Image
Hi everyone,

Welcome to this week's challenge at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week we have a Designer's Choice challenge for you, where you can use any of your favourite products in your design.




I have chosen to create with a Stamp Set called Winter Woods to which I used the Reflection technique.  Here's my card.




The cardstock used is Pacific Point, Sahara Sand and Whisper White for the inked layer.  I've also added some Metallic Washi tape from my stash to the borders of the front Panel.






The Happy Birthday greeting comes from an older stamp set called Rose Wonder and has been cut out with the Stitched Shapes framelits.




I find it handy when I have all the inks & stamps ready to make 2 card fronts when I'm making a card with a particular technique like this and I'll make a 2nd card to keep in my stash.  Here's a pic of both cards I created with the Reflection technique.





Here's the second card I made




Thanks so much for stopping by today to see my card.  We …

90th Birthday card

Image
Hi everyone,


I've taken this opportunity to play with some new items I recently purchased and use them on a commissioned card I was asked to make for a dear lady.

The cardstock is Petal Pink, Very Vanilla and Copper foil.  The new dies I've used here come from the Rose Trellis pack.  I've also used the Large Number dies for the "90".




There's a 3d Lily that I had fussy cut already and had in my stash which I added to this card which adds a little elegance over the Trellis work on the background.  I've used a little bit of the Copper thread under the number panel to finish off this card.





Here's a closer look.  I've been told the recipient loved it. 





Thanks so much for stopping by today to see what I created. 

Have a great day.

Hi everyone,


Welcome to this week's challenge at Stamp Ink Paper.  We are featuring Vellum this week for our challenge.



For my card I've used a vellum background which was firstly brayered with Balmy Blue ink and then embossed with the Lace Dynamic embossing folder.  My cardstock for the base of my card is Soft Sky and for the Label & greeting is Not Quite Navy (retired) and Very Vanilla.






The butterflies have been punched from the Botanical Butterflies sale-a-bration paper with the Duo Butterfly punch and to finish this card off I added Basic Pearls to the background and the butterflies.






Below is a closeup.
