This is for you Amanda!

I thought I had better put a card up on here as it has been soooo long since I have.
So here goes.

New Blog Header

I can finally show you the baby card I made for a friend of mine. It took me 5 weeks or so to give it to her but finally I can share it with you.

The little duck is from a punch class called Simply Punches I signed up for a couple of months ago that Heather Summers held online. Isn't he cute. She has just started a new class today called Simply Punches Three.

You can't see it very well but I hand stitched round the edge of the top layer. The DSP I used is the new textured, coverweight cardstock called Sweet Slumber. The colours I used are Not quite Navy, So Saffron, Baja Breeze and Whisper White. The stamp set is the level 1 hostess set Punches Three.

Warning Very Girly Card

Here is a card I made last night with my new stamp set A Kind Word. I just couldn't wait to do a very girly card using it. The colours used are Pink Pirouette, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue and Blush Blossom. I used the sentiment from the On Your Birthday stamp set, I also used the En Francais background stamp and the number 5 is from a retired number set.
The accessories I used to make this card are the Small Oval Punch, Boho Flower Punch, Eyelet Border Punch, Aqua Painter, Water Colour Paper, Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive, Pink Pirouette Ribbon and Pink Pirouette Patterns Designer Paper. Oh I almost forgot, I used my going grey marker to outline the image after I coloured it, that helps to make it pop off the page.
I have more to share with you but I have to prep for classes and a workshop so I better leave it for another time.

A Rose is a Rose

Here is a card we made at a stamp-a-stack I held last weekend. It is made out of a Stampin' Up! envelope and I saw the idea at last years Stampin' Up! regional training. I am not sure who originally came up with the idea. I have used the fantastic set A Rose is a Rose as well as the On your Birthday stamp set, Bella Rose DSP, Kiwi Kiss Satin ribbon and the colours Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Old Olive and Kiwi Kiss.

I Love Flowers

For this card I have used the colours Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Grey and whisper white. The new stamp sets used are Fifth Avenue Floral and On Your Birthday. I have also used a Baja Breeze button from the Button Bouquet Designer button pack and Basic Grey Taffeta Ribbon.
This card was inspired by this card by Dawn at Dawns Stampin Studio.
