This card was made for another very special little girl who turned five last month 🙂
I really love this card. The colours are pretty and the elephant is adorable! I was completely inspired to make it from a gorgeous card on SCS, which you can check out here.
The colours I’ve used are Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette and Kiwi Kiss. The paper is Riding Hood Red and the DSP from the Simply Scrappin Kit, Sweet Nothings. What a useful Scrappin kit Sweet Nothings is! Of course, you already knew it, but I’ll say it anyway, the elephant is from Wild About You :), and what you may not know is that the sentiment is from the Level 2 Hostess Set, Occasions for All.
The party hat was a useful idea I came up with … cutting a triangle from my Sticky Cut Letters adhesive and adhering Fine Supernova Glitter on the party hat topped with a Circle Fire rhinestone brad – and three of the same brads on the top left corner of the card.
On the weekend we went to a great birthday party for my dear friend, Michele, and her (middle) daughter, Emily. Emily wanted her birthday at the park and despite the rainy Sydney weather on the weekend, there was a pocket of sunshine that was like a special halo over Emily’s park and her party. So everyone had a lovely time!
This is the birthday card I made for Emily, using the stamp sets Wild About You, Occasions for All (Hostess set) and Best Friends Numbers (retired). I added a little piece of Bella Rose DSP, some Designer Buttons (Button Bouquet), some Riding Hood Red ribbon plus a Build-a-Brad. The colours are Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Tempting Turquoise and Certainly Celery.
My card was inspired by this card on SCS here. Gorgeous card, isn’t it?
Well, I must apologise for falling off the radar for a while. We’ve had Bella’s birthday last weekend and visitors coming and going for almost a week. Plus, I’ve discovered a whole new blog world for writers and I’ve been lost in the world of agents, editors and writers. I’ve even had a few lines of my WIP edited by a real NYC editor – wow! It’s fabulous!
But back to cards 🙂 This is the card I made for my Bella. She loved it!
Bella’s one request for her card was that it have a big 5 with glitter on it (“like Harry’s”, she says to me). So, out came the Sticky Cut Letters and the chunky glitter. I’ve borrowed my cousin’s Wild About You stamp set (I must return it, Lyndal!) – so I had to put an animal on her card too. I just had to play with it, you know? Plus, I’d seen a gorgeous idea by my friend, Michele, with a fairy wand (made simply using the star punches and a thin scrap of cardstock). I wanted to use that idea too. So they all came together in this card.
I’ve used the colours Lovely Lilac, Regal Rose and Pink Pirouette. I’ve used my two-way glue pen to colour in the dots on the giraffe and then doused the giraffe with Dazzling Diamonds. The sentiment is from Short & Sweet (stamped in Regal Rose), with three square rhinestone brads to finish it off. It looks even better IRL!
