A recent Stamp-a-Stack

These are the cards I designed for my last Stamp-a-Stack.  One of the ladies coming along wanted to make a wedding card, so I tailored the SAS around Tempting Turquoise and Basic Grey.  I thought the Tempting Turquoise lended a real “Tiffany’s” feel to the card … what do you think?

And the second card was designed for boys 🙂  And, so, you can see how a simple layout and colour scheme can be used for two entirely different cards.

The stamp sets I used for the wedding card were Fun & Fast Notes, Together Forever and Sincere Salutations.  Although you can’t see the Sincere Salutations, it was an option for anyone who wanted to make another type of card with Fun & Fast Notes and Sincere Salutations.

The boy’s card used the stamp sets Choo Choo (available in the Spring Mini), Short & Sweet and Fun & Fast Notes.

Big Bold Birthday, step it up!

Here is the same card from my Stamp-a-Stack here, except this card is stepped up!  Instead of using the Eyelet Border Punch I’ve added the Pink Pirouette coordinating grosgrain ribbon and some bling.  What do you think?  Do you like the additional accessories?   Do you step it up on your own cards?

Stamp-a-Stack – Birthday cards

These are a set of cards made for a recent Stamp-a-Stack.  Gosh, we had a ball!  There was even a unique bloke gracing our presence.  I say, “gracing”, as he was an awesome cardmaker!  His creations wowed us all.  LOL!

I love this set of cards.  The layout for the Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red and Lovely Lilac card worked well with the Big Birthday stamp set.  The variety of cards everyone made on the night excelled all my expectations.  And, the Dazzling Diamonds rivalled the sun’s sparkle.

The other card was inspired by Lin Mei.  Thanks for your wonderful idea, Lin Mei!  I think the Kiwi Kiss/Tangerine Tango combination does solid justice to Funky Forest.  And colouring in the trees with marker pens is so much fun!  The best thing about this card is that everyone could tailor their cards to suit the sentiments from either Short & Sweet or Sincere Saluations.

Why not book a Stamp-a-Stack class with me and make 10 cards (of 2 different designs) for only $20 (envelopes $3 extra)?  That’s only $2 a card (or $2.30 including the envelope).  Does the idea appeal to you?  Then, what should you do?  First, make sure you live not too far away from me!  Then, you organise a minimum of 4 people to come around to your house and have some fun making cards.  I come to you and provide everything, including a hostess gift for you.

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!

Baby Masking make and take

dsc00364

I really love the simplicity and elegance of these two cards.  They were great fun to make because I used the masking technique and the way I’ve attached taffeta ribbon is clever, yet it is so easy to attach that even a card-making beginner, who may find it challenging to look upon, would find it simple to do.

I’ve used the colours Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Barely Banana for the baby boy’s card:

And I’ve used the colours Pretty in Pink , Certainly Celery and Barely Banana for the baby girl’s card:

I think these would be great cards for a “make and take” or a “stamp-a-stack”.  I’ll be using them as “make and takes” on the weekend and I’m sure they’ll be a hit!

The stamp sets I’ve used are All Year Fun to decorate the balls with lots of Dazzling Diamonds and Short and Sweet for the message “Welcome Baby”.  Short and Sweet has to one of the most versatile and useful stamp sets I have!  I love it!
