Sticky Cut letters are going …

This is a card I made for a Sticky Cut Letters class – I do love Sticky Cut Letters with glitter!  I’m saving this card for a special girl’s birthday 🙂

But Sticky Cut Letters will retire in a couple of days and you won’t be able to buy them again 😦  And they’re half price at the moment!!  I’ve added a gorgeous pink Fine Super Nova glitter to this number 8 – doesn’t it bling?!!

I masked the balloons from Big Bold Birthday too (also 50% off) – it will retire in a couple of days too!

The cardstock I’ve used is Regal Rose, Real Red and Whisper White and, to these colours in the inks, I’ve also used Pink Pirouette.  I adore the way the filigree and rhinestone brad finish off the bow 🙂

Big Bold 5th Birthday

I’m sorry I’ve been slack in posting the past month.  I have been working hard to finish the first draft of my novel – and I finished it last night!  Now, I’ll put it down for a while, let it percolate, and revisit it in a month to begin the hard slog of editing and polishing it.  Until then, I’m cardmaking with abandon!!  There will be lots more posts in the coming month 🙂

A few weeks ago, my daughter received her very first invitation in Kindergarten.  And she was so lucky – it was from one of her best friends! 

So this is the card we made for her.  Bella helped pick the colours (it had to be pink, pink, pink!), and then she stamped all the inside of the card.  I’m so sorry, I forgot to take a photo of the inside!

The pinks Bella chose are Pink Pirouette and Pixie Pink.  I was surprised that she picked Lovely Lilac for the little flower!  It’s been a while since I’ve used my Sticky Cut Letters – I forget how cool they are with the Fine Supernova Glitter!  Love the “J” for the birthday girl’s name 🙂 

The stamp sets we used are Big Bold Birthday, Short & Sweet and Best Friends Numbers (retired).

Walk in the Park Birthday

This is a card I made for a very special little girl, who was having a Rainbow Bakery party for her fifth birthday.  All the kids mixed up their own cupcakes at the party, so I thought Big Bold Birthday perfect for her card.

I also used the new DSP Walk in the Park and based the colours around that gorgeous paper (available in the NEW Spring Mini catalogue).  So, the colours I used?  Cameo Coral, Basic Grey and Baja Breeze.

Big Bold Birthday, step it up!

Here is the same card from my Stamp-a-Stack here, except this card is stepped up!  Instead of using the Eyelet Border Punch I’ve added the Pink Pirouette coordinating grosgrain ribbon and some bling.  What do you think?  Do you like the additional accessories?   Do you step it up on your own cards?

Stamp-a-Stack – Birthday cards

These are a set of cards made for a recent Stamp-a-Stack.  Gosh, we had a ball!  There was even a unique bloke gracing our presence.  I say, “gracing”, as he was an awesome cardmaker!  His creations wowed us all.  LOL!

I love this set of cards.  The layout for the Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red and Lovely Lilac card worked well with the Big Birthday stamp set.  The variety of cards everyone made on the night excelled all my expectations.  And, the Dazzling Diamonds rivalled the sun’s sparkle.

The other card was inspired by Lin Mei.  Thanks for your wonderful idea, Lin Mei!  I think the Kiwi Kiss/Tangerine Tango combination does solid justice to Funky Forest.  And colouring in the trees with marker pens is so much fun!  The best thing about this card is that everyone could tailor their cards to suit the sentiments from either Short & Sweet or Sincere Saluations.

Why not book a Stamp-a-Stack class with me and make 10 cards (of 2 different designs) for only $20 (envelopes $3 extra)?  That’s only $2 a card (or $2.30 including the envelope).  Does the idea appeal to you?  Then, what should you do?  First, make sure you live not too far away from me!  Then, you organise a minimum of 4 people to come around to your house and have some fun making cards.  I come to you and provide everything, including a hostess gift for you.
