Batman belt punch art

This is a card I made for my son’s 4th birthday this week – a card from his Nona.  He loved it!

I was inspired by a card on Spiltcoaststampers here.

I made it using Stampin’ Up! punches – the wide oval, Star and Small Oval.  I used the stamp set On Your Birthday for the sentiment.  The colours are Ballet Blue, Summer Sun, Basic Black and Basic Grey.  And I used Basic Grey textured card stock, which I think gives the belt extra dimension.

Thanks for looking 🙂

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!

5th birthday

This was a card I made for a special boy in our family who turned 5 last week. The birthday presents were stamped by Jo with Birthday Whimsey – retired (part of candy I received from one of Jo’s launch parties, thanks Jo!). The tempting turquoise card was stamped with the star from Fun & Fast Notes. And the number ‘5’ is from Best Friends Numbers. I really like this colour combo of Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive and Real Red … I’m rediscovering Tempting Turquoise at the moment! I forgot how great it is!!

Thanks for looking!

Baby girls!

I’ve been asked by a friend to do some baby gift cards. Here are some baby girl cards I have started with … which one do you like best?

Simple Somethings No 1

The ‘It’s a Girl’ stamp I don’t like at all.  As soon as I stamped it on this card I regretted it.  The stamp is not a Stampin’ Up! stamp and, gosh, you can tell it is not!  The quality is clearly lacking, so this stamp will be off to Ebay!

Simple Somethings No 3

I’ve used the Loves Me DSP for each of the above three cards and I really like this paper.  It is only available in the Summer Mini Catalogue until the end of March and after that … it’s gone forever!
