Everyday Enchantment 7th birthday card

So I’m a little late with the Sale-a-bration cards, but I did make a few!  I’ll pop them up over the next few days. 

This is a card I made for one of my daughter’s best friends at school.  Weren’t the Sale-a-bration colours and stamps fantastic this year?  It’s so easy to make an amazing card with beautiful tools 🙂

For this card, I used the Everyday Enchantment DSP, the stripes and the flowers on the butterfly.

I used the Big Shot to cut the big butterfly from the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die and the little butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die.  And the Simple Numbers Bigz Die for the number 7.  Plus I used the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder on the bottom strip of Whisper White paper.

I added the Pool Party ruffled ribbon and was more than pleasantly surprised at how PRETTY this ribbon really is.  I love it!

And what little girl’s card wouldn’t be complete without some Rhinestone jewels?

Thanks for looking 🙂

Beautiful Wings birthday card

This is a card I made for my gorgeous cousin’s daughter last year.  I just love this card – it’s one of my favourites!

I’ve used the colours Shimmery White, Perfect Plum and Crumb Cake.

Then I’ve used the Big Shot lots – I started with the Elegant Lines embossing folder for the Whisper White background, then I used the Designer Frames embossing folder for the sentiment.  The sentiment was stamped from the now retired Occasional Quotes and punched out with the Large Oval punch and and layered with the Extra-Large Oval punch.  Intead of ribbon, I’ve used the Tasteful Trim Big XL die (love this die!).  Lastly, I used the Beautiful Wings embosslits die for the stunning butterflies with Perfect Plum Subtles Collection Patterns DSP paper stack. 

This is a close up of the sentiment and if you look closely you can see that I’ve stamped the layers behind the sentiment with the ever-so pretty Elizabeth stamp stamped in Crumb Cake ink.

The butterflies sparkle with Rhinestone jewels.

Delicate Doilies birthday card

This was a card I made last year when I first played with stamp set Delicate Doilies. I just love this stamp set! 

To make this card I stamped the images from Delicate Doilies in Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Wisteria Wonder first before I put the paper through the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder in the Big Shot.  I sponged the edges of all but the bottom strip of Very Vanilla with Soft Suede ink including the strip of Very Vanilla punched with the Lace Ribbon border punch and the strip of Wisteria Wonder (also stamped with Delicate Doilies in Soft Suede) which has been cut with Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die with the Big Shot.

The sentiment was stamped using the stamp set Bring on the Cake.

Strength & Hope Mini Lunch Sacks

I know the new catalogue has just started – so I promise I will post some of my new creations in the next week.  Don’t you love the new catalogue?  I know I do!  If you haven’t seen it yet and would like a hard copy – please email me 🙂

Now, I am sorry I’m very tardy in posting these gorgeous mini lunch sacks – especially because you can’t buy them from Stampin’ Up! anymore!  But I love them, all the same, and must share them 🙂 

I made these as a free gift to all my guests for my launch of the Autumn/Winter mini that has now finished.  I just adored the lunch sacks and was entirely inspired to make my lunch sacks from the gorgeous creations on this link here.

To make them, I popped the lunch sacks through my Big Shot in the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  Then I punched out three strips of Concord Crush cardstock with the Scallop Trim border punch.  I stamped the butterfly from Strength & Hope in Concord Crush ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and then cut it out and stuck it with dimensionals over the flourish from Strength & Hope (also stamped in Concord Crush).  Of course, a gift must have bling too – so there are three of SU’s rhinestone basic jewels for the butterfly’s body.

To tie the top together, I used Basic Black striped grosgrain ribbon.  And my little tag is from Tiny Tags – stamped in Basic Black and Pear Pizzazz and tied on with linen thread.

Baby Tees Baby Girl

I made this card for my old neighbours.  They had a beautiful baby girl earlier this year!

I used the colours Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and Whisper White.  The Baby Tees jumbo wheel is so cute!  I rolled it in Staz On black ink on watercolour paper and then cut it out and coloured it in using my aqua painter and ink pads.

Of course, the embossed dots are made using the Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  And the sentiment comes from the stamp set Well Scripted.

Striking Mini Milk Carton

How adorable is the Mini Milk Carton die?  Of course, not possible to make without the amazing Big Shot. 

This was one of my free gifts at my Sale-a-bration launch party, earlier this year.  I was inspired by page 94 of the Australian Idea Book & Catalogue 2010/2011 for the colour combination and for the detail.  I really love the combination of the Love Letters DSP and Newsprint DSP – I can’t put my finger on it but it’s subtle and striking!

 

For the stamp set, I used the Level 2 Hostess set, Cute by the Inch.  How well does it coordinate with the DSPs?  This is a knock-your-socks-off colour combo – Basic Black, Real Red and Very Vanilla.

Masculine Grunge Rock Birthday

This is the birthday card I made for my brother’s birthday last year.  I just love the new stamp set in the Summer Mini – Grunge Rock – there just isn’t enough time in the day to play with it!

I based the card around the colours Basic Black, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla.  I used the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Square Lattice, through my Big Shot with some Very Vanilla cardstock.  I stamped that embossed cardstock randomly with the diamonds from Grunge Rock.  And then I used the new Gold Glow Smooch Spritz to finish off the background.


For the centre piece, I used the standard wheel, Music Notes stamped in Crumb Cake, and rolled in randomly across the Very Vanilla cardstock.  I stamped the guitar from Grunge Rock in Basic Black and cut it out.  I stuck it on the Music Notes using dimensionals.  For the sentiment, it was stamped in Basic Black on Crumb Cake cardstock, and I sponged the edges in Basic Black ink.
