Stamp Ink Paper #138 - Cardmaker's choice Happy Birthday Anna

Image
Hi Everyone,

Welcome to this week's challenge at Stamp Ink Paper.  I'm so happy that this week is our Cardmaker's Choice challenge so that I can share with you the Birthday card I made for my daughter who turned 17 on Sunday.




She is a makeup loving girl with an addiction for Eyeshadow Palettes so that was my inspiration for creating her birthday card this year.


Here it is, and she loved it.  So did her sister who I showed a preview to and she said it was the coolest card I've ever made.  How's that for a compliment from another Makeup loving girl.  It made my day.




I'm happy to say all the products used to create this card whether they are current products or retired, were all from my Stampin' Up! supplies including the Circle punch and dies.  Here's a closer look at the Eyeshadow pans.  Some used Foil, some Glimmer paper and Wink of Stella over the coloured card.  The base of the card is Basic Black Cardstock and the pans are sitting on Sahara Sand and…

Stamp Ink Paper #137 - Tic Tac Toe challenge

Hi Everyone,


Welcome to this week's Tic Tac Toe challenge at Stamp Ink Paper




I've chosen to do the Diagonal line "Sequins, Flowers, Embossing".  What will you choose.

I've used a combination of Sweet Soiree dsp, Cake Soiree bundle and Petal Pair textured embossing folder for my card.  The cardstock is Berry Burst and Whisper White.





Here's a closer look at the tag I created for the greeting and the sequins. 




I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you can become a Guest Designer for Stamp Ink Paper just by playing along with our challenges.

Thanks so much for joining us this week at Stamp Ink Paper for our Tic Tac Toe challenge.

Stamp Ink Paper #136 - Cabin Fever

Image
Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our themed challenge this week at Stamp Ink Paper.  



Here's my card using Seasonal Layer framelits.  I wanted to make something the exact opposite of Winter.  While we don't have snow where I live in Australia and its Summer here, I can certainly sympathise with my Northern Hemisphere friends.

The cardstock I've used is Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Sweet Sugarplum, Bermuda Bay and paper from the Serene Scenery stack.






Here's a closer look.  I tore the bottom of the Beach paper and did a little sponging of the edge to make it look a little more like the sand on the beach at the water's edge.






We also have some exciting news to share this week.  Sarah Fleming is our Guest designer this month and you too can become a Guest Designer for the Stamp Ink Paper team just by playing along with our challenges.

Thanks so much for joining us this week at Stamp Ink Paper and have a great day.

Brusho for my Catalogue Launch

Image
Hi Everyone,


Here's just a few cards I made and had on display for my first class of the year last weekend using some new products including Brusho and some Sale-a-bration items.

My catalogue launch display featuring Brusho.





I've also used some new dies that I've earned for free thru the Sale-a-bration promotions.  If you don't know how that works, please ask me.

Here's a pic of each of the cards so you can see more of the detail.  I kept them all very simple to allow the Brusho backgrounds to be the focal points of the cards.





















Thanks so much for stopping by to view my display.  Any comments or suggestions are appreciated.  I love hearing from you.  Have a great day.

Dad's 80th Birthday

Image
Hi everyone,

Did I tell you I was behind with my blog posts?  It was Dad's birthday on  the 1st, New Year's Day.

This was the card I made him for his 80th.





This card uses paper from the Wood Textured designer stack along with the Large Number thinlits and cardstock of Basic Black, Whisper White and Gold foil.






The design of this card is a bit different with the square cut out and square inner fold.  I have photographs of both angles to give you the idea.




Here is what the card looks like looking down from the top.






I hope you've enjoyed seeing this card that I made for Dad's 80th.  If so please drop me a comment, I love hearing from you and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
