Wednesday seems to be a good day for posting...

All of my creations for the week! The first is an 18th birthday card I made this weekend for a friends' sister. Love the colour combo of Purely Pomegranate, Pretty in Pink and Old Olive. And as always a touch of bling with some Dazzling Diamonds.
The second piccy shows some 40th birthday invites I was asked to make for a friend. They were inspired by a swap card I received from the recent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators convention. Again, jazzed up with bling, ribbon and embossing. ( Matching envelopes were just the finishing touch)
The third card I whipped up while I was feeling inspired after making all those invites! I must admit I am now well and truly in love with the 'So Swirly' jumbo wheel, highlighted with the 'White gel pen'! It adds so much to the card I think! And I always love playing with punches- another favourite, the scallop punch, double punched to create this cute medallion. If you would like any more details please feel free to post a comment here or contact me privately. Take care xx

Just a quick post today as my beautiful girl is soon to wake from her nap! I made this gorgeous gift box and gift card set ( 3" x 3" cards) for the door prize at one of my workshops recently.

Using my fav stamp set 'Baroque Motifs' and 'Circle of Friendship'. They came together so easily that I almost didn't want to give them away! LOL

The colours I used were our beautiful In Colours, Soft Sky and Blue Bayou with a little Vanilla wide Grosgrain ribbon to finish. You may notice I've also used quite a few circle punches and the Scallop punch. I just love how they nest together so well! If you would like any more details please feel free to post your question here!

Posting frenzy

I feel as though I'm in a bit of a posting frenzy this week after having had time off blog land while we were unwell with the flu! Scroll down to make sure you haven't missed any of the good stuff and I have a couple of quick cards to show you all as well.
The first is a colour challenge to use: Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi and Certainly Celery. And the second card was made utilising some scraps left lying around my craft desk.

Some Masculine cards...

These are the cards we made for my workshop on Sunday ( Hi Girls!). And we all had a blast! The card uses the 'Lovely as a tree' stamp set which would be awesome as a Chrissy card as well ( *think glitz and dazzling diamonds*) and it was so much fun to make. The original card layout was inspired from another Demo in our team, Linda Higgins.
This full card uses:
Close to cocoa, more mustard, mellow moss and glossy cardstock.
close to cocoa, always artichoke, mellow moss and old olive markers.
Lovely as a tree and Occasional greetings Stamp sets.
Scallop circle punch,hemp twine, jumbo eyelets and the awesome crop-o-dile.
And a selection of DSP from the 'Outlaw' range.
Masculine cards can be so hard to come up with sometimes but I think we all achieved this one nicely!
