'Purples' Birthday

Was having a play around with this card last night and I love how it has turned out! It is a mixture of about five different ideas that I had seen on Pinterest all rolled into one.

This was the first time I had attempted the scrolled/rolled flowers and I think that will be my new 'thing'. They are so easy to do and they turn out beautiful.

Some of the products used in this card are from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue which finishes up on the 31st July! Make sure you get your all your favourite products from the Autumn-Winter Mini before they are gone forever!

Thanks for looking!

Have Fun and Happy Stampin'

Festive Friday #27

This weeks Festive Friday Challenge over at Nicole Derendorf's blog is a product challenge. The product this week is RIBBON! It has to be used in any way other than just a bow or a knot on your project.

My card for the challege is ...

I saw this idea on Pinterest a while ago. I've just used varying lengths of Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding ribbon, folded them in half and attached them to the Soft Suede 'tree trunk'. I also had my first attempt at quilling making a star using this technique.

Thanks for looking!

July Swap

It's that time of the month again for me to make and send my swap for the Facebook group Stampin' Up! Card Swap. To see this group click here.

I've used the Attic Boutique DSP #125407, from the Autumn - Winter Mini catalogue. It is beautiful paper and I love the colours that it co-ordinates with. Be sure to get your Attic Boutique paper now as this one will be gone forever on July 31st.

I CASEd this one off someone else but can't remeber where I saw it.

The punch used is the Postage Stamp punch and the coordinating 1" square punch. They were carried over from the Summer Mini catalogue and are still avaliable.

Better go and put this one in the post so that it can make it's way to the US before the end of July.

Have Fun and Happy Stampin'

Festive Friday #26 Challenge

Well it's Festive Friday time again! This week is a colour challenge using non-traditional colours. I do love a colour challenge. You can go a bit nuts and use your creative flair just making sure you use the colours set out in the challenge.

The colours for this week are:

I do love this colour combo and I have used it alot in my cards but never in a Christmas Card. My card for the challenge is

I used the stamp set Welcome Christmas and gave the card a bit of a vintage feel which these colours lend themselves to very well.

I also made up my own embossing powder by mixing some White Embossing powder with some Dazzling diamons Stampin' Glitter to give it a bit of a subtle Christmas sparkle. Not sure if you can see it to well in the photo though.

Have a go and join in the fun at Nicole Derendorfs blog (click here) and make a card for this weeks challenge. Great way to get a head start on your christmas cards by making one or two cards for the weekly challenge.

Customer Thank You

I've just updated my stash of Thank You cards for my customers when they place an order and also to put with my retired items when I sell them off.  I saw the colour combo of this card on a blog of a U.S demostrator, Lynn Weiss, and fell in love with it. To see the original card click here.

The colours are Regal Rose, Island Indigo and Pear Pizzazz. It isn't a common colour combination but it is very striking.

Thanks for Looking!
