Kyra's 18th Birthday Card

Hi everyone,

It seems all my daughters friends are having birthdays at the same time of year.  This young lady turned 18 on Monday.

This was the card I made for her stamping straight onto Serene Scenes paper, inspired by many others I'd seen on Pinterest.

I've used 2 stamp sets, Beautiful You and Birthday Blast and I've cut out the Sentiment with the Stitched Shapes framelits.

Kyra lives near the beach to I was inspired to use this particular paper from the Serene Scenes stack for her card.  The cardstock I've used is Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Whisper White & Basic Black (inside).

The inside of the card showing the Popup.  I've actually done a few simple ones like this recently.  Everyone loves them.

Thanks so much for looking.  I hope you've had a great weekend.

Paper Craft Crew 244 - Cupcakes & Carousels

Hi Everyone,

Its Wednesday and its time for this week's challenge at the Paper Craft Crew.

I'm using the Cupcakes & Carousels stamp set this week as I already had it out to prep for a class.  This set won't be carrying over into the new Stampin' Up Catalogue, so if you like it and want it, you need to order it very soon.  My cardstock here is Flirty Flamingo and Very Vanilla.  The greeting is from the stamp set Thoughtful Banners and are great for putting small phrases or words together.

Here's a closeup.  I've coloured the image with Blender pens and ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.   Can't wait to see what you make at the Paper Craft Crew challenge this week.

Have a great day.

Stamp, Ink, Paper #99 - Star Blast Bottle Tag

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our challenge this week at Stamp, Ink, Paper.  Here's our theme.

I thought I'd make a bottle tag to dress up a Wine Bottle as a Birthday Gift which I put in a cellophane bag.  I ran it past our Team Leader Justin to make sure I was within the packaging realm  as I love using cellophane bags with a bit of ribbon as a quick effective way to package a large assortment of things from baking to sweets and even personal care items.  I have a fundraiser coming up and we also like to package up the prizes, but in a way where you can still see what they are.

The cardstock I've used is Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Very Vanilla combined with the Bermuda Bay Glimmer paper available only through Sale-a-bration.  To this I added a Tag stamped with the Balloon Adventures greeting and stuck on some stars that were out of the die cuts.  Here's a closer look at the Bottle Tag.

Doesn't this dress the bottle and cellophane bag up so much.  Makes it look quite special.  Some Pool Party ribbon was added to tie around the neck of the bottle and cellophane bag.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  We would love to see you at Stamp, Ink, Paper this week with your packaging ideas.

Have a great day.

Happy Mother's Day - Super Mum

Hello Everyone,

Wishing all the Mother's out there a wonderful Mother's Day.  I hope it was great.

Mine was, dispite the fact that I work on Sunday mornings.  We had celebrations on Saturday evening and this afternoon and we caught up with my Mum and my Mother in Law early, last Thursday.

Here's a card I made recently.  Its for every Mum.  We are all special and Super!

Its a simple card that I made using the Everyday Hero Stamp set from the Occasions catalogue which is unfortunately not carrying over into the new Annual Catalogue.  The cartoon like characters are very cute.

Here's a closeup of the image.

The cardstock is Bermuda Bay and Whisper White.  I've coloured with Blender Pens and markers and used my Wink of Stella over the cape.  The photograph doesn't capture the sheen on it very well.

Here's a few photos from our celebrations.  Firstly, the flowers my daughter brought home for me yesterday, a little mini cheesecake treat I had for morning tea, and the Special Mother's Day Cake my daughter brought home from work for afternoon tea.  Yum

Have a fantastic day.

Happy Anniversary Cards

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share a couple of Anniversary cards I made recently for Family & Friends.  Both use similar supplies.

The base of each card is Very Vanilla and on the first I have Basic Black cardstock and some Crumb cake for the butterfly.  Here's a closeup.  I've used the Papillon Potpourri butterfly stamp set here.

The second card uses Basic Gray card in place of the black for a slightly softer look.  Both cards use Retired dsp and the Teeny Tiny sentiments stamp set for the greeting.  The first using the Modern Label punch for it and the second the Bitty Banners.

Here's a closer look at the greeting

And a closeup of the butterfly here.  Basic pearls complete the butterflies on the cards.

These cards are very CAS and its a great way to use up Designer Series papers.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the Wednesday card sketch challenge at the Paper Craft Crew.

My cardstock is Pool Party, Whisper White, Dapper Denim and coloured Glimmer paper from the SAB pack.  I've pulled out my Bitty Banners framelits from retirement to highlight the sentiment "You're Incredible".  Underneath the square panel I've also used one of the Banners from the framelits set Bunch of Banners.

We hope you can join us for our challenge this week at the Paper Craft Crew and we look forward to seeing your take on the sketch.
