One of the best things about Stampin’ Up!, for me, is that I keep in touch with the BEST people. Today, I’m lucky to share with you some cards my friend Jenne had made and emailed to show me last week. Jenne and I used to work together (before I took a sabbatical from law to be a mum for a while). Jenne still works with a great bunch of people that I miss working with! These are the cards Jenne made:
Don’t you love them? Here is a close up of the birthday cards – for twins 🙂
For the twins’ birthday cards, Jenne has used the stamp sets Garden Whimsy and Think Happy Thoughts for the girl’s card and Sincere Salutations with the Large Star punch for the boy’s card. And the ribbon is also Stampin’ Up! grosgrain. The ribbons look great, don’t they?
This card is for a housewarming.
For this card, Jenne used the Trendy Trees stamp set. Jenne said her friend’s new house had lots of trees, so Trendy Trees suited the occasion just right!
Although the patterned paper is not Stampin’ Up!, I think Jenne has matched it awesome with the stamp sets she has used.
We went to a birthday party for a very old friend’s twins on the weekend (her third and fourth children!). The girls turned two and these were the cards I made for them, something similar but slightly different.
Can you tell that I love my Big Bold Birthday stamp set yet? It’s just fab! Anyway, I teamed it up with striped paper from the Winter Bright Simply Scrappin’ kit (which will most likely retire at the end of March) as I just love the colour combo … Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Wild Wasabi, Regal Rose and Bashful Blue. I added a bit of 1″ Rose Red double-stitched ribbon to divide the card, then some crystal effects and Dazzling Diamonds on the cupcake top and balloons. I stamped the “happy birthday” underneath the cupcake. And I used my Pretty in Pink marker to draw the balloon string.
This is the Regal Rose card with a felt flower added and a Pretties Kit rhinestone brad in the centre …
And this is the Pretty in Pink card with a felt flower added and a Fire red rhinestone brad in the centre …
Unfortunately, a drop of water must have fallen on the bottom of the “happy birthday” on this card … and I noticed as we were walking out the door (and I rushed to take these photos). I’m sad that it is a bit ruined! But I didn’t have time to recreate another card either 😦
