Hello Reader;

Today i am sharing with you a card made with one of Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration items, that were on offer this year.  I really liked this set its one where you can build dimension with different shading by using the three different stamps for the flower head.  I like to have a lot of thank you cards handy for when i need them. This one was so quick to replicate quickly.

Hello Reader;

The card i am sharing with you today takes a little bit of time but i think its worth it 🙂 I started by layering up the background stamp elements in a collage-style.  Then i stamped the flower image twice on another piece of card and i water coloured it with my inkpads.  I then fussy cut it twice and layered up the images in a decoupage way picking out the main stem of the flower. I then added the greeting and matted and layered the panel on to the card base

Hello Reader,

Quick card for you today, the patterned paper {DSP} is from Stampin’ Up! and i simply mounted it on a coordinating layer of cardstock stamped and punched the greeting and did the same.  Then mounted onto a simple white base – from Stampin’ Up they have their lovely smooth whisper white cardstock in a ‘thick’ version now which is great for making card bases – i then finished off with a rhinestone.

Hello Reader;

Today’s card is a simple coloured stamped image on a pre-made notecard base, I like to keep a small stock of these notecards so that i can make small cards quickly.  The image is from Penny Black and i have coloured it using spectrum noir pencils and then blended with fluid and stumps, then quickly mounted on to a notecard base.

Hello Reader,

Today the card i am sharing with you, is made using a stamp from Stampin’ Up! i really liked the sentiment and i felt that it was a good one to have in the box ready for any rocky times.  I like to let my friends know i am there for them or thinking of them if things are difficult for a while and what better way than a handmade card.  I coloured the image with coloured pencils and for a change corner punched the layers to give a different look.

Hello Reader;

In February i wanted to send some valentines to my friends and pen pals so i made these little note cards.  All the supplies are from Stampin’ Up! It’s quiet an eclectic make using embossing powders in gold and clear and washi tape, doilies and twine and of course a few  gems and pearls.  I also did some stitching and pricking.

Hello Reader;

Today i am sharing a card, made for those hard to make for men.  The stamp set is from Stampin’ Up!, i did a bit of inking on the background to give it a sky and clouds feel.  I really liked this stamp set, i think it will end up getting a lot of use 🙂 {the set was part of their sale-a-bration promotion and is no longer available.}
