Short & Sweet Birthday

This is the birthday card I recently made for my sister’s birthday.  I’ve reverted to one of my favourite colours again … Purely Pomegranate!  I just love the Purely Pomegranate satin ribbon 🙂  There is a lot of white for this card though and a dash of Pixie Pink.  I like the crisp and clean look.  I used the excellent Short & Sweet stamp set again … it really is a wonderful stamp set!  And today is the last day you can purchase it for 20% off!  So if you’d like to order it, let me know now because I am definitely placing an order on the evening of the 31st October 2008.

Here is a close up of the punched out images using the Large Star, 1 3/8″ and 1 1/4″ punches.  You can also see the paper piercing I’ve made using my mat pack:

Dad’s 60th Birthday

Well, this year my Dad turned 60!  Dad doesn’t live nearby and he is visiting at the moment, so I can now show you the birthday card I made for him.

I really wanted to try and make a masculine card … meaning no flowers!  That is a challenge!  Instead, I went with a stars theme … cause my Dad’s a star! hehe!  Plus I stuck to mostly neutral colours with Basic Black, Copper and Very Vanilla … with a dash of Soft Sky and Tempting Turquoise.

The stamps I used were Classic Stars jumbo wheel with the Large Star and Star punches, Wonderful Favourites and Best Friends Numbers.  I also remembered to use my Hodgepodge hardware for once!  That was nice!  I love the Soft Sky ribbon too … I couldn’t help putting ribbon on the card.  Sorry Dad! hehe!

If you’re not familiar with Faux Stitching, I recommend you join my newsletter group.  This months’ newsletter contained a tutorial on this great effect.  So simple!
