More Pony Party

This is another Pony Party card I made last year for one of my daughter’s friends. 

For this card, I used the cardstock Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Concord Crush and Whisper White.  This time I sponged the background sky in Concord Crush and the grass in Pear Pizzazz, but I cut out the pony after I had coloured her in with my marker pens and ink pads.  Isn’t this the cutest eva pony? 

The Pink Pirouette cardstock was rolled through my Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments in Regal Rose ink and sponged with Concord Crush – a few Rhinestones under the sentiment, layered over cardstock punched using my Scallop Oval punch and Large Oval punch, and the sentiment was done!

Some more Pony Party

This is a card I made last year for one of my daughter’s friends.  Ponies are simply too popular to ignore for 6 year old girls, lol!

For this card I used the colours Concord Crush and Blushing Bride – I really love these new In Colors!  I did my usual – I masked the pony and sponging a background on which I then stamped the butterflies, grass and flowers.  For the sky, I sponged the colour Bashful Blue and the grass with Pear Pizzazz.  I used my blender pens to colour in the pony from my ink pads and I stamped the sentiment using White Craft ink.  This gorgeous pony card was then finished off with three rhinestone brads in the top left hand corner.

Secret Santa 2010

Last year was the first year I joined in my upline, Jo Wassen’s, team Secret Santa.  And, gosh I’m glad I did!  Not only did I receive an awesome gift that came packed so perfectly from Rachel Jackson (my secret Santa) – check out Rachel’s Bag in a Box here, I forced myself to come up with this gift to give to Michelle Le Breton.  And Michelle is so super-talented, it was simply a challenge to make something worthy enough to give to her!

I say “forced” because I decided to make a cover for her present – which was a clear stamp set.  So, really, this can also be used for a DVD too.  I simply took my paper and started measuring and came up with this design to hold her present.  Of course, then I decorated it!  You can see how the stamp set fits in below:

So, to decorate this stamp set cover, I used the colours Real Red, Garden Green and Whisper White.  I popped some Real Red cardstock through my Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and then I dabbed it with Champagne Shimmer Paint – I LOVE SHIMMER PAINT, LOL!!  Then I stamped two of the images from the stamp set Welcome Christmas.  For the wreath I used the marker-to-rubber technique to add the Real Red berries to the Garden Green wreath.

To finish it off, I added SU ribbons – I can’t have enough ribbon!

Now, if I get really organised, I hope to put a tutorial up for this in the near future.

Vintage Wallpaper Wedding Place Name Cards

There is a little more to tell of Cath and Steve’s wedding, besides the waterfall of torrential rain that flooded their bridal table just as they were about to be seated or the fire alarm that interrupted the start of the speeches and couldn’t be turned off until the firemen arrived to flick the ‘off’ switch.  All true.  Trust Canberra to provide a delicious wedding memory.  

But, there are a couple more cards.  Today, I’ve posted the place name cards I made for all the guests.  Again, I used Basic Grey cardstock and Whisper White embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, by now the signature of Cath and Steve’s wedding invitations.  I added a pearl to the centre of the embossed design, and a touch of Pink Pirouette and Baroque Motifs to one corner.

I printed all names on vellum paper and then punched them out using the Scallop Oval punch and I attached each name with Mini Glue dots – perfect because of their transparency.



Well, the honeymoon is over and it’s back to work soon for the bridal couple, but I still have one more card from the wedding to show you.  Check back tomorrow!

Manhattan Flower birthday

I really love this colour combination – Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride and Very Vanilla.   I have a few cards I’ve made with it lately.  This one is really simple!

I used my Big Shot with the Manhattan Flower embossing folder to create this gorgeous flower on the Blushing Bride cardstock.  Then I added a touch of lace (non-SU – but SU lace is coming!) with an Antique Brad.  I think the Antique Brads are my new favourite product!!

Next I stamped “Birthday Wishes” from the Level 3 Hostess stamp set, Occasional Quotes.  I then punched it out using the Large Oval Punch and layered it with some Crumb Cake cardstock punched using the Scallop Oval punch.  I sponged the edges of the sentiment with Crumb Cake ink and then added some lovely SU pearls.
