Christening Card

I have made this card for a little boys christening we are going to tomorrow. I used Night of Navy Card stock stamped with the French Flair Background stamp. I stamped it with Versamark and embossed with Silver embossing powder. Then I took a piece of Navy card stock and pressed the versamark directly onto the card stock and embossed with silver embossing powder. I mounted Navy on top of that and tied some silver cord around it. I used the saying out of the Stem Silhouettes stamp set and finished with some white organza ribbon and some hodgepodge hardware. The french flair background stamp and stem silhouettes are retiring in 2 days and so is the silver cord. Be quick and don't miss out on some of those must have items.

Birthday Best

To make this card I used the paper from the Loves Me Paper Pack out of the Summer Mini which can be no longer ordered after the 31st March. I also used the Flirty Ribbon which I just love and that also can no longer be ordered after the 31st March either. I stamped the Cake out of the Birthday best and watercoloured with crayons and added some glitter for a little bit of sparkle.

Sympathy Card

This is a sympathy card I made the other day, I promise it is all nice and straight and lined up but it doesn't look that way in the photo. I didn't realise until I downloaded it what a bad photo it was but, it was to late I had already sent the card. The cardstock is chocolate chip and naturals ivory. I have used the weathered background stamp and the good things grow stamp set as well as close as a memory. I finished with chocolate grossgrain ribbon.

Mixed Bouquet

This card I made for a workshop a few weeks ago and forgot to post it, so here it is. I used the Mixed Bouquet stamp set which is retiring and the time well spent stamp set which will be a level 3 hostess set in the new catalogue. All the colours are from the Bold Brights colour range being pixie pink, tempting, turquoise, yo yo yellow and gable green. The saying has been coloured using the stampin write markers.

I have coloured the chicks in with watercolour crayon and the ears of the bunny with the stampin write markers. I have finished off with 3 blue brads.

Loads of Love easter card

I decided this card was more suited for Nicholas's easter card. He will love the Loads of Love Truck with the easter eggs in the back. The cardstock is Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue and the Spring Showers paper pack. I have coloured using the water colour pencils and the aqua painter and the eggs are coloured using the stampin write markers. I have finished with the tag punch and ribbon from the Seaside ribbon pack.

By Land Truck

This is a very similiar card to one I posted not long ago but I just love the idea and layout of it especially the treehouse paper. This is using the By Land Stamp Set and Headline Numbers. It just shows that you can adapt an idea and use it many different ways.

Bunny Hugs

This card I made for Nicholas my little boy but I am a little unsure about it still so you may see another post from me yet for his easter card. I stamped bunny hugs in basic black on whisper white cardstock and coloured with stampin write markers. The bunny is raised using stampin dimentionals and so is the saying. I finished with three brads on the saying and a bit of ribbon around the bunny's neck.

Both Way Blossoms again

This is the last card for this set! I have had heaps of fun playing around with these. This card is Cameo Coral and Old Olive cardstock and coloured with the same stampin write markers. This is two posts for one day as well, now thats probably gonna be a first and a last. lol.

Both Way Blossoms times two

These are 2 of my ideas using the both way blossoms level 2 hostess set. The daisies are coloured using apricot appeal and mellow moss stampin write markers and mounted on apricot appeal and mellow moss cardstock. I used some ribbon from the sweet shop ribbon pack to finish off this card. The hydranga's are coloured using the lavendar lace and mellow moss stampin write markers and mounted on lavendar lace and mellow moss cardstock. I stamped the background stamp french flair onto the lavendar lace cardstock with whisper white ink.

I think I could have posted this one for Valentine' Day! I made this card using the Level 2 Hostess Gift Both Way Blossoms and the Level 1 Hostess Gift Riveting. The colours I used are Rose Red and Handsome Hunter. I also used the background stamp French Script. I havn't used this stamp set much, but am on a roll and have some more ideas for some other cards using the same set so stay posted for further posts.
