My Uncles’ 60th birthday cards

My Uncles turned 60 on the weekend.  They’re identical twins, so I made their cards similiar, but different!

This one I based on the Parisian Breeze DSP (retired).  The colours I’ve used are Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, Baja Breeze and Whisper White.

And this one I based on the Outlaw DSP (retired).  The colours I’ve used are Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Sage Shadow and Very Vanilla.

On both cards I’ve stamped the “Happy Birthday” and frame around the number 60 from the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Vintage Labels.  The “60” is from Best Friends Numbers (retired) and the beer mug is from Cheers to You.  I finished off each card with a jumbo eyelet and linen thread.

Cyberstamp Challenge #4

The fourth and last challenge was a sketch challenge. We were to use the sketch below for inspiration to create our own card or scrapbook page. The only criteria –  it needed to be predominantly pink!

This was the card I made.  I’ve used the stamp set Cheers to You and the Level 2 hostess set Occasions for All.  The paper is Regal Rose DSP from the Level 1 hostess Patterns Pack and Bella Rose DSP.  The card base is Pretty in Pink.

Happy Father’s Day

I hope that all the Dads have a lovely Father’s Day with their kid(s) today – enjoy!

This is the card I made for my hubby last night.  It always amazes me that I’m able to make a card for my hubby, and he remains oblivious even though I’m right under his nose!!  While Daddy sleeps in this morning, Bella added her name inside.  The boys aren’t quite up to writing names yet! 

I’ve used the stamp sets Cheers to You and Wonderful Favourites for this card.  It’s a really simple design and layout and I love the colours, which I based around the gorgeous Parisian Breeze DSP – Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze and Whisper White.  Gotta love those stripes!

Baroque tri shutter invitation

This is a card I mocked up for a friend for a kitchen tea invitation early last month.  Seeing as tri shutter cards are all “in” at the moment, it was a pleasure to make it!  And, I was able to use some Spring Mini DSP paper – Parisian Breeze.  The DSP is simply gorgeous, you must try it!

Now, this tri shutter differs slightly from the tutorial on The Craftiblog here.  It’s a gorgeous card on The Craftiblog, by the way 🙂  Check it out! 

I had to alter the measurements for my card, as I wanted it to be made from an A4 piece of paper, instead of 12×12.  The reason?  Simply, the card was designed for an invitation and it would be more cost effective if made on A4 paper.

I’ve used a base paper of Sahara Sand.  Then I have stamped the big swirl from Baroque Motifs on Vellum paper in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I also used the same stamp in Chocolate Chip ink on the Parisian Breeze DSP – which I then used my square punches to punch out for the small square panels.

The panels, except for front panel, have all been layered with Chocolate Chip paper.

I stamped the “you’re invited” from Sincere Salutations on Whisper White paper and then punched it out with the large oval punch, layering it with Chocolate Chip paper with the NEW scalloped oval punch (available also in the Spring Mini).  The ribbon is the coordinating Kraft taffeta ribbon – love it, such a versatile ribbon!

The close up below barely (sorry!) shows that I have stamped the champagne glasses from Cheers to You in Sahara Sand on the Sahara Sand paper, under the Vellum paper.

I have a tutorial in my monthly newsletter this month on how to make this particular tri shutter card on A4 paper, so if you’d like to make your own tri shutter, join up now (click on box at top of right hand margin)!  AND, if you do make your own, why not post a link to it in my comments?  I’d totally love to see your creations 🙂  If you don’t have your own blog, then you can always post your picture in Splitcoaststampers here (clink on the Upload a Card link), and then paste your card’s link in my comments.

Cheers to you!

Last weekend we had a last minute surprise visit from my Dad.  It was great timing because it was his birthday – and the kids adore his visits.  This meant I had the perfect opportunity to use my Sticky Cut letters … again! 

Plus, I used the ever-versatile Cheers to You stamp set.  I stamped the martini glass across the bottom of the card and coloured it in using my blender pens and ink pads.  I used colours based around Stampin’ Up!’s blue Chunky sprinkles – Basic Grey, Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy and Kiwi Kiss.  These are great colours to use for a masculine card!

A Free Gift – wine gift tag

My launch night was a great night … thank you to everyone who came along!  I hope you had a great time too 🙂  This was one of the free gifts that all my guests took home.  It was inspired by my friend, Michele Knight, who made them at Christmas as a Christmas Project night … what I great idea, I thought, perfect to give a bottle of wine to someone special 🙂  And the new stamp set Cheers to You simply lends itself to the idea, don’t you think?

The colours I’ve used are Basic Grey, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze … with the Basic Grey taffeta ribbon.  I hope some special people receive a special present soon 🙂

Daddy’s birthday

It was my husband’s birthday on St Patrick’s Day … remember the card I made for him, here?  Anyway, these are the cards Isabella and Joshua made for him … they picked the colours, the DSP, the type of ribbon, the stamps … and then they punched and stamped and glued … and Bella coloured in … they loved it!  We had such  a wonderful afternoon together 🙂  I was very proud of them.

Not only do I get to have fun with my kids making cards … but as a demonstrator, I also get to see the new catalogue early and all demonstrators also got a sneak-peek and pre-order opportunity this year!  So, do you see any new colours on these cards??  Because, each card has a sneak peek … for you … of two new In Colors … and a new stamp set too … called Cheers to You.

I must say … I will really, really, really miss In the Stars when it finishes with the new Summer Mini on 31 March … it has been a fabulous stamp set for me!
