Josh’s Extreme Elements 6th birthday

Well, my special middle boy, Josh, turned 6 back in March.  It was a bit of a crazy time in March as we had been given notice to vacate our home (the owner wanted to move in) so we were running around looking for somewhere to live in between packing, school, work, my business and all the usual fun of life!  Josh had a big party last year for his 5th birthday, so this year was a quiet affair at home.  This was the card I made for him – I really love how it turned out!

I used the stamp sets Extreme Elements and Happiest Birthday Wishes with the colour combination Real Red, Basic Black and Crumb Cake.  I love the Big Shot and I couldn’t have made this card without it – I’ve used the Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die and Simple Letters Alphabet and Simple Numbers Bigz Dies to cut out Josh’s name and the number “6” (which doubles as the number “9”). 

I think that SU’s glitter paper is the best paper out there – I hope we get more colours in the new catalogue!!

Thanks for looking 🙂

Extreme Elements birthday card

This was a late night last minute card (do you ever do that?) I made for my brother for his birthday last year.

As it was a last minute card, I wanted easy inspiration and so I was so so so grateful for the wonderful 2011-2012 Stampin’ Up! catalogue because I cased page 60!

I think my colours may be slightly different to the catalogue (or is it my bad late-night photography? hmmm) … I used the colours Crumb Cake, Concord Crush, Island Indigo and Pear Pizzazz.  And I used the sentiment from Grunge Rock together with Extreme Elements.

Sorry, the close up is a bit blurry!
