Six Sided Sampler Pastel Card

I think these should be the last of forgotten cards I have to show you.
First up is this very dainty card featuring the Six Sided Sampler stamp set from SU. I also used a butterfly image from the Papillon Potpourri set, a flower from the Petite Petals set, and the matching punches. The sentiment is from the retired Vintage Labels set.

This next card was quickly thrown together with some left over stamped images. Great for those little last minute gift-giving emergencies.


Supplies are as per the first card.
 All done. :)
Catch you all soon.

Hawaiian Girly

I'm still digging through my photos, searching for cards that I haven't posted yet. Hmmm, there are a few more than I anticipated. Gosh, I've been slack! Ha ha... Anyway, here is another one of them...

This is sweet Hawaiian Birgitta from C.C.Designs. She has been coloured with SU markers. The hair looks a little patchy in the photo. I think my Crumb Cake marker is running out. :(

The background was stamped in Pretty in Pink with a stamp from the Off the Grid stamp set. The butterfly was stamped with one of the stamps from the Papillion Potpourri set. It was punched with the matching punch. I just love butterflies and will include one at any opportunity. Ha ha...

A Friend's 40th

Another post today of a 40th birthday card I forgot to show you a few months ago, featuring a gorgeous Audrey Hepburn image:

Again, I've kept it simple and within the party's theme of red and black. I just coloured her in with Stampin' Up! markers and in true Audrey style, I embellished her with adhesive half-pearls. The sentiment is from the retired Afterthoughts stamp set.

BTW, it was a great party!


Holy Communion Card

Following on from my post of my daughter's Communion invitations a little while ago, today I have to show you the Communion card I made for her...

This image is also gorgeous. Another sweet angel floating around on clouds cut from felt using cloud dies. She was coloured using Stampin' Up! markers, an her wings were 'Stickled.' Her dress has been embellished with adhesive half-pearls. The sentiment is from the now retired Special Blessing stamp set. That's about it. Not much to it but I'm sure my baby will love it.

First Attempt With Stampin' Up! Blendabilities

Hello everyone!

Long time, no Blog - again! But if anything was going to entice me to make a card and post it, it was going to be the new Blendabilities markers from Stampin' Up!
Here is my first and very basic attempt at using them...

Not the best photo, unfortunately, but I think you should still be able to make out the graduating Coastal Cabana colours on the flowers, which are from the Stampin' Up! Flower Shop stamp set. The flowers were stamped in black Memento ink on Whisper White cardstock, and punched using the matching Pansy Punch. The sentiment is from the retired Vintage Labels set, also from SU.

Can't wait to get my hands on some more of the colours and gradually build up my collection.
