This is the last make-and-take card my guests made at my Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue launch party.
The card is made with the colours Taken With Teal, Regal Rose, and Close to Cocoa. Don’t you love these colours together? I know, I do! I stamped the Medallion in Versamark ink and then popped the colour with my pastels – I love this soft effect!
The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments, which is stamped on Whisper White in Taken With Teal and layered on a the Curvy Label punch, cut in half and sponged in Taken With Teal. Naturally, the card is finished off with Dazzling Diamonds and a rhinestone brad!
I’m very slack … I have been meaning to make this card for a while. It is for a lovely friend who has had an operation recently. Except she’ll be well on the mend by the time she receives the card!
Anyway, a long while ago during a training session I had the chance to use someone else’s Paisley background stamp. Finally, I decided to use it! The rest of the card just grew from the old olive Paisley stamp on Whisper White card stock and the need for a Get Well card. Of course, Fun & Fast Notes provided me with all I needed then. I had fun with my new aqua painter, water colour paper and, naturally, I couldn’t help but use my crop-a-dile!
I really like Old Olive and Regal Rose together … and the ribbons are just fabulous in the new catalogue! Enjoy your day and thanks for looking!
This weekend I have a stamp-a-stack (aka SAS) for my cousin. It will be a great day, particularly as her daughter and my daughter are only 2 weeks apart in age and will have a ball playing while we have fun making cards! What is a stamp-a-stack? It’s where you make a stack of 10 cards, usually of 2 different designs. This is one of the cards I have chosen for the day.
We will be making 5 of these cards which my cousin’s guests will be able to tailor using the greeting stamps from Warmest Regards (retiring at the end of this month). The card, except for a few minor details, is a complete case from Splitcoaststampers. You can check out the original card here. Thanks so much Michele Boyer (Paper Cuts) for a great card! The original card had the advantage of using the Stampin’ Up! In Colour, Purely Pomegranate, which will be available in Australia from 1 April 2008! I can’t wait … that’s next Tuesday!!
This is the other card we will make. I apologise for the poor quality … of card (!) … my original card took a little battering at the last card class I ran and is a little worse for wear with extra ink spots on it. Such is life! I’ll post a nicer card up next week 🙂 This is an excellent card for a stamp-a-stack! With the Birthday Best (in the old and new catalogue for only $25.95!), guests can change from flowers to balloons to cupcakes and have a variety of cards to take home, should they choose to dip into their “creative well”. It’s one of the best value stamp sets in the catalogue and one of my favourites! For the greeting on this card I’ve used the stamp set, God’s Blessings, but if you don’t have that stamp set then the Birthday Best greeting is just fine too 🙂 I’ve also used Simply Said flowers at the top of the card, but they aren’t coming up well in the photo. My apologies.
If you like the idea of organising a few friends around for a SAS, then drop me a line and we can book a date today (in Sydney, NSW, please). The cost for a SAS is $20.00 plus $3.00 for envelopes (envelopes are optional).
You can always tell when the new year has settled in … life gets busier. So, with a few workshops done recently and a few more on the way, here are some more thank you cards I have made for my hostesses. The card below uses the stamp set, Merci, which is one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp sets you can only receive if you place an order over $100 BEFORE 29 FEBRUARY 2008.
Time is counting down for these sets to be gone forever … so if you love it and want it, order today!
The gorgeous Flirty pink ribbon and stunning chocolate/vanilla spotted paper will also be gone soon, but you have until 31 March 2008 to place your orders for them. A good reminder for your diary, the Summer Mini Catalogue ends next month!
I love the next stamp set. Simply Said is one of my favourites. I’m also loving the colours Rose Red and Regal Rose at the moment … don’t you agree, they look great with Certainly Celery? And watch out for those Dazzling Diamonds … they’re ever present in my cards 🙂
Which thank you card do you like best? Leave a comment.
These are two of the make and takes that we will be making at my Sale-A-Bration Launch party on Friday night (anytime from 7.30pm, 18th January 2008). Why not come along and make your own to take home?
This first card doesn’t have to be a ‘thank you’ card. You can use any stamp from the ‘Warmest Regards’ stamp set to make your card your own.
This card is gift tag size and would be cute and special to use as an ‘acceptance’ to a wedding you might be about to attend. Of course, it could be a wedding card too!
We will be making one other card but it will be a surprise for the night. Why not come along and see what it is?
