Dazzling Nursery Letters

This is another card I made for a workshop make-and-take.  It uses Heat & Stick powder with Dazzling Diamonds.  I love the simplicity of Nursery Letters with Dazzling Diamonds on the Whisper White!  The Eyelet Border punch jazzes it up together with the White Taffeta ribbon.  I think these colours – Pink Pirouette and Regal Rose – make a lovely baby girl card.  The sentiment from Short & Sweet finishes the card off.

Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you have a lovely day doing all that Easter means to you 🙂

These are the Easter baskets I made for my kids this Easter. The baskets were inspired by Makeesha Byl (there is an awesome tutorial on this link) and the bunny rabbit was inspired by Kylie Swain – thanks so much for sharing your talent, ladies!! I did change the size of the basket … my boys have dairy issues (one quite serious) … so no chocolate for their baskets. I bought a plate and other things for the boys … so I needed to upgrade the size of the basket. I used a 12 x 12 sheet and took the handle and a strip for the bunny rabbit punches all from the same 12×12 sheet.

Anyway, the first basket is for my almost 2 year old son. I’ve used the colour So Saffron, some retired Certainly Celery DSP and the Nursery Letters wheel:

And I’ve used the big Designer Brad (Circle) on the handle …

The second basket is for my 3 year old son. I’ve used the colour Ballet Blue, some retired DSP and the Classic Stars wheel:

I made this basket first, so it’s a bit bigger! It only had 1 strip for the handle taken out of the 12×12 sheet …

And I’ve used the big Designer Brad (Star) on the handle … and Josh has already pointed to it and said “I love my star!”. Cool!!

The third basket is for my 4 year old daughter. No dairy issues here – so we have chocolates!! LOL!! I’ve used the colour Regal Rose, some retired paper from the Winter Bright Simply Scrappin’ kit and the Scribble wheel:

And I’ve used the big Designer Brad (Flower) on the handle …

I’m happy to say the baskets are a hit … the kids (especially the boys) are walking around with them everywhere!!

Oh … and here are some Easter hats I made for Easter Hat parades too (and my beautiful models, naturally, my babies!! Josh, Bella and Harry – from left to right)  …

Needless to say, the hats were a hit with the kids too!!

Have a safe Easter break … thanks for looking 🙂

A new baby girl!

Recently, my old boss and his wife had their first baby girl … and this is the card I made for them:

dsc00478

I used the colours Pretty in Pink, Pale Plum and Whisper White, plus I used versamark with Heat & Stick and Dazzling Diamonds. I really love the jumbo wheel, Nursery Letters, for baby cards … it looks fabulous embossed and all glitzed up in bling! And I love the butterflies from Live Your Dream (available in the Summer Mini which finishes at the end of this month) … I stamped the butterflies in Pale Plum and cut them out, sticking them on with dimensionals. Then I used Short & Sweet to finish off the sentiment and wrapped the card with white taffeta ribbon.

This is a close up … you can see I added a little Dazzling Diamonds to the tips of the butterfly wings too …

Dazzling Baby cards

I’ve a few baby cards to show you today. The first two are from my embossing class the other night.

For these cards, everyone used the jumbo wheel with Nursery Letters and then embossed with Heat & Stick power and Dazzling Diamonds for a sparkling effect! Gosh, it looks even better in real life! Then we embossed the prams from Simple Somethings with silver embossing powder … and everyone could colour as they pleased to suit their events! I’ve coloured the baby girl’s card in Pretty in Pink using the Stampin’ Up! pastels …

I’ve coloured in the baby boy’s card using Bashful Blue from my Stampin’ Up! pastels …

This is a close up … I love the Heat & Stick plus Dazzling Diamonds effect, don’t you!?!

Then I had a card left over, so this is an additional card I made. This time I used the baby stamp from In the Stars (available in the Summer Mini) and stamped it in Versamark and then Barely Banana Ink … and then embossed it. I’ve used a metal edge tag to add elegance to the card and I used the Certainly Celery DSP to punch out the scallop circle that I’ve layered the baby stamp onto. I hope that makes sense!

And, lastly, white taffeta ribbon finished off all of the cards.

Now is the perfect time to get organised for the year ahead.  And what better way than to make some baby cards?  There are so many gorgeous bubbas being born at the moment … why not give a new Mum and Dad and special, handmade card to keep for their newborn?

I am having a baby stamp-a-stack card class on Friday 30 January 2008.  Come along to my house and make 10 cards – 5 boy designs and 5 girl designs.  Bookings are essential, so email me today!

God’s Blessings – Baby Boy’s Christening

dsc00331

A very special baby boy is being baptised this weekend. Unfortunately, we aren’t able to attend the service as it is in Brisbane, but our prayers are with Brynn for Sunday.

This is the card I made to send up with his present. I love the Bashful Blue and Barely Banana combination for a baby boy card – don’t you? And I’m addicted to the metal edge tags at the moment – they’re awesome!

So what have I used for this card? The base of the card stock is textured Bashful Blue. I stamped the message from God’s Blessings on the metal edge tag, then I’ve stamped and embossed in silver the duck clip and rattle from All Year Fun. I then rolled my jumbo Nursery Letters wheel in Barely Banana on the bottom half of the card and layered it on Barely Banana card stock. I’ve divided the card with the 1″ stitched grosgrain ribbon (available in the Summer Mini catalogue) – it’s it stunning ribbon! I sponged around the edge of the white cardstock with Barely Banana and then finished the card off with three star brads from the Styled Silver Hodgepodge.

I hope it makes a nice keepsake for Brynn.

Sweet Baby card

dsc04515
This is a card that I made because I had to play with the new jumbo wheel I bought, Nursery Letters.  I know a few people with babies due early next year, so I need to stockpile a few of these cards!  I also used the Level 2 Hostess stamp set, Cause for Celebration.

The colours are Soft Sky and Barely Banana … I think Barely Banana makes a great baby card!  And I added on a metal edge tag from Stampin’ Up!.  I’m really liking the metal edged tags … they add great dimension to a card!
