Medallion card in a box

Recently, we had a team day where we took a card in a box and made as many cards from boxes as we could on the day.  I managed to make 10 on the day! 

This was my card in a  box:

I was inspired to make this card by SCS here.  It’s a gorgeous card, so please check out the link!  I altered the colours a little.  So I used Kraft as the base, Not Quite Navy for the scalloped edge strip, textured Sahara Sand for the paper pierced strip and I stamped the Medallion on Bella Bleu DSP in Not Quite Navy.  And I stamped the sentiment from Sincere Salutations in Not Quite Navy.  A touch of Dazzling Diamonds and the card is finished!

Thanks for looking 🙂

Inspired from the Catalogue

Do you find you are sometimes stuck for an idea?  I often will look for something to inspire me to create a card and then I make it my own.  But this card from pages 7 and 157 from the Idea Book & Catalogue was too elegant to alter … I had to recreate it!

Except, I made one obvious alteration.  If you can tell me what I have changed, then post a comment on this page letting me know.  I’ll post this card to either the person who is correct or, if there is more than one correct answer, I’ll draw your name out of a hat.  Anyone is welcome to participate, including my clever team!  You have until Friday 9.00pm!

Thanks for looking 🙂

Thank you cards for my hostesses …

The afternoon sun has distorted the colour of these cards slightly, so my apologies. If I waited until tomorrow morning to take the photos, I don’t think this post would go to air!

These are a few cards I am sending to my hostesses holding workshops for me in the near future. I’ve been having fun with my ‘Simply Said’ Stampin’ Up! stamp set. Enjoy!

Simply Said Thank you

I also used my trusty Spring Flowers punch for this card.

Simply Said Thank you

I added some of our Flirty ribbon here from the current Summer Mini Catalogue.

Simply Said Thank you

This is a ‘cased’ card from Jayne Mercer (thx!). I think this is a great card to make and take because you have a chance to play with the Stampin’ Up! jumbo wheel, use a white gel pen, add some ribbon and even paper pierce some decorative corners to add dimension. What do you think? I’d like to try this card with Perfect Plum and Pale Plum too …

Bud Basics Thank You

This is such an easy card to make! A Bud Basics card too, instead of Simply Said.  I have only used 2 stamp sets, 3 ink pads and whisper white cardstock … whala! (oh, and my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig!)

Simply Said Thank you
