Sweet Treats New Catalogue Launch party

Well, it’s been over a month since my New Catalogue Launch party, and I’ve been quite MIA on the blogfront (sorry!), but I have been busy!   I think it’s time for some catch-up blogging … I’ve so much to show you 🙂

These are the cards everyone made at my launch and the gifts they received …

 This card was made with the Newsprint DSP (I love it!) and was entirely inspired by Jen Sannes here.  Thank you for a stunning card, Jen!   The cardstock colours are Very Vanilla and Basic Black.  And the Star was punched from Basic Black cardstock that had been through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  A silver brad attached the star to the card and on the strip of Very Vanilla the sentiment is stamped from the stamp set Teeny Tiny Sentiments. 

This card was also an inspired card.  This time I was inspired by My Sweet Stampin Spot here.  I’ve used the colours Sahara Sand and Whisper White.  Using the Big Shot, I cut out the Top Note in Whisper White, then ran it through with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  I then used my brayer and Sahara Sand ink to roll over the top of the embossed image – and wow!  The ink rolls onto the embossed image.  Very cool effect, heh?

 We then stamped the sentiment from Perfect Punches, and punched it out with the coordinating punch.

This card was inspired from my trip to Convention in Sydney this year.  I’ve used the colours Certainly Celery, Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette and More Mustard – oh, and the strings are my Bashful Blue marker pen.  It’s using the stamp set Party Hearty, which I just love – it’s so versatile, especially for kid’s birthdays.

 Here is a close up with the silver flower and grosgrain ribbon.

Next is my daughter so wanting to be part of the night instead of going to bed!

Each guest received a little cupcake of Baja Breeze ribbon and a “brownie” box of goodies.

Aren’t the “brownie” boxes the cutest ever?  I saw them as a fan of Stampin’ Up! on Facebook here.  And I found an great tutorial for the boxes here.  For my boxes, I embossed the brownie boxes with Perfect Polka Dots and Manhattan Flower.  Then decorated them with pearls, ribbon, flowers punched from the Boho Blossoms punch and felt flowers.

 Thanks for looking 🙂

Manhattan birthday

It was my beautiful cousin’s birthday a couple of weeks ago, and this is the card I made for her.

I used Rich Razzleberry paper and coordinated it with the Rich Razzleberry Polka-dot grosgrain ribbon (which isn’t available anymore after the end of this month).  On the Whisper White, I used the Big Shot and the Manhattan Flower textured impression for this stunning flower.  And then, for the sentiment, I used the “happy birthday” from Teeny Tiny Sentiments which I punched out using the Large Oval punch and layered on Rich Razzleberry using the Scallop Oval punch.  A little bit of bling by the sentiment finished it off!

Thanks for looking 🙂
