Birthday Wishes

I have 2 cards to share with you today that were made at a recent class I held. Both of these are Birthday cards as I find I never have enough, although you could change out the sentiment. One would also make a nice wedding card.

This first one is a CASE of card I shared in this previous post, but I’ve changed the colours and added and extra layer of Blossom.

This is a very simple card but I think quite elegant and would also make a nice wedding card.

Butterfly Kindness

Here’s another card that I made at our Team Stamp Camp last month. This one was made for my lovely upline Marelle Taylor, to thank her for such a fabulous weekend.

 

All A Flutter 1

 

I remembered to snap this one on my phone before giving it to Marelle so I only had to make one of these.

I’ve used the ‘All A Flutter’ stamp with the ‘Heard from the Heart’ sentiment set on this card. Both sets are from the Autumn/Winter mini which ends on the 31st August. The colours are Melon Mambo, Soft Suede and Whisper White. The butterfly was stamped onto Watercolour paper using Stazon and coloured using an aqua painter and inkpads. I’ve also added some Crystal Effects over the butterflies body but it doesn’t show up in the photo. This is a beautiful butterfly stamp and I really need to play some more with it.

 

Till next time…..

Asian Artistry and can anyone tell me…..

How I can get more hours in the day?  Or maybe more days in a week?

I know. If we knew this we’d all only won’t more and more…….lol

Life has just been so hectic this year. Silly me thought as my children got a little older things would slow down. Now granted they range in age from nearly 9 yrs to nearly 15 yrs so maybe I’m just expecting things too soon……hahaha. With all the school things, after school activities and household duties, I’m surprised at times I get any time to stamp let alone post here but I’ve always done some form of craft since I was little and it’s definitely a part of me that won’t change. I think some time management is probably what’s in order and scheduling in time for certain things and sticking with it. The other thing is learning to say ‘NO’ at times …… I’m sure we can all relate to that one.

Anyway enough of my rambling. Tonight is catch up night. I’ll be sitting at my computer for as long as it takes tonight to type and schedule some posts. I have lots to show, share and tell you all over the next week and hopefully more regularly after that.

The card I’m going to share with you in this post is another one I made at Stamp Camp and it’s using the lovely Asian Artistry stamp set. I wish this set wasn’t leaving us at the end of the month however I may just hang onto it.

Asian Artistry 1

 

I’ve stamped the image onto Watercolour Paper using Stazon Jet Black and coloured using an Aqua Painter and inkpads. I love watercolouring but don’t often do it.

The base card is Old Olive which I’ve layered some Pink Pirouette onto. The Pink Pirouette cardstock has been stamped with the main image using Versamark. I’ve run a piece of Regal Rose and a smaller piece of Old Olive through the Big Shot using the Polka Dot Textured Impressions folder and layered the Old Olive on the reverse. The sentiment is also from the Asian Artistry stamp set and has been stamped using Regal rose.

Asian Artistry CASE

The card I’m showing you today is actually a CASE from the swap card I received from Kerri Donsky at Convention last month. I needed something for my second Stamp-A-Stack card for last week as with Convention and then my party I’d left it very last minute. Mind you that’s the whole purpose of swap cards to me. To give inspiration and ideas to others. I hope someone likes my swap card enough that they put it to use too.

So here is the other card we made.

 

May SAS

 

The only thing I have changed from Kerri’s card is the sentiment on this one. However Kerri did use another sentiment from the same stamp set, Upsy Daisy. Again you could use any of the sentiments from the Upsy Daisy stamp set or other stamp set for this card. It’s even a nice card for a male and if you thought the eyelet border on the card was a bit too girly you could change it out for the scallop edge instead or even leave it plain.  Rather than ribbon Kerri used a thin strip of Bashful Blue card stock which she crimped. I loved that idea as it gives the card a bit more texture.

Supplies:
Stamp sets: Asian Artistry (Level 2 Hostess Autumn/Winter Mini), Upsy Daisy, Sanded
Card: Kraft, Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Crimper, Eyelet Border Punch, Blender Pen.

Till next time…..

Cottage Wall DSP Gift Boxes

Back in this post I shared an Easter Gift box I had made for my March Secret Sister Gift. Well today I’m going to share with you that same box remade using the lovely Cottage Wall DSP that is available in the current Autumn/Winter mini catalogue.

 

This first one I also made for Easter eggs for me just in case no one else in the family remembered me……lol

 

Box 1a

 

Box 1b

 

 

 

 

In case your were wondering, yes I did receive easter eggs and this box is still as is in the picture complete with eggs still inside. Must change that soon……

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A friend of mine saw this one and wanted a class on it. She made hers like this one but I made a different colour combination for the same pack of DSP and this is how that one looks.

 

Box 2a

 

I really liked both of these combinations.

As I mentioned in the Easter post the divided insert is loose so you could remove it and package a different gift inside.

I ended up making a Pillow Box to match both boxes.

 

Pillow Boxes 

 

I’ve used some of the Flower Fantasy Printed Window Sheets to add a window. The Rich Razzleberry Pillow Box has some Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry Ribbon inside. These are so quick to whip up using your Big Shot of course.
