These were two of the cards three cards we made on Monday night.
This first card was the trickest of all the cards but I had a few talented cardmakers attend and I wanted to challenge them a little (I hope I did!!). The new rhinestone brads are stunning and I think the Turquoise brad really made this card. Of course, I rarely make a card for people that doesn’t have Dazzling Diamonds too. So you can see the flower sparkling away! This card was inspired by another card on Splitcoaststampers … check out the other card here. Thank you for the inspiration!
The second card was my own design. I came up with it by deciding I wanted to use our new Wild Wasabi Textured card stock, my new En Francais background stamp (I love it!) and my scallop circle punch (I love it the most!). Plus I knew I wanted a gift card size card. I only needed to add Boho Backgrounds, Priceless and Everyday Flexible Phrases to the mix to finish off the card! phew!
It may sound full of everything, but it was really easy to make … and everyone had the chance to play with my new brayer and my new scallop punch!
Watch my blog over the next few days and I’ll post the third card we made too.
If you would like to play with a scallop circle punch too … then why not place an order with me today? You can place an order with me from anywhere in Australia. It’s really easy to do. Just email me and ask how.
Just a reminder … my FREE card & scrap night is on Friday 28 March 2008 from 8.00pm, for any who are interested in coming along.
Remember … this is an “up to you” night. It is a night to work on your own creations. You need to bring along your own cardstock, adhesives, embellishments etc and any of your latest purchases you haven’t yet used.
You are welcome to also use any of my stamp sets, ink pads or punches, if you like. I will supply a seat, some lollies (perhaps some chocolate Easter eggs if you can stomach the sight of them …) and coffee/tea/cold drinks.
Book some time in your diary for YOU now and come along. Bookings essential (simply so I can organise table space for everyone).
If you are short on ideas, then check out these two cards. I made these cards the other night for my two gorgeous Godsons in Brisbane … Corey turned 14 and Zayd turned 2 … brothers that are a day and 12 years apart! Very special men deserve very special cards 🙂
