Butterfly Basics

I love watching Brandy Cox on you tube, she is a fantastic stamper and gives me inspiration and ideas to CASE. Using up some of the colours that are about to retire I have made this card, the ink colours are Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey all beautiful colours, but we are getting some band new amazing colours available 1st June. Yay!

This butterfly card only uses the Butterfly Basics stamp set and is stamped directly on to the card so easy to made and you don’t need too much equipment.

Here is a link to Brandy video tutorial so that you can see how it is made.

Congratulations card

Congratulations to my friend at work who has a new job (yes another one). Loving this crafty afternoon making this congratulations card for her. A fellow crafter posted a triple stamped card, so of course I had to give it a go and this is what I came up with.

I made this card using the following stamps and colours

The inks and card stock I used are Blackberry Bliss and Tangelo twist which are both retiring at the end of May so may not still be available, but I think it would still look great with different colours.

As for the technique for how to do this, you tube triple stamping.

Celebrate today stamp set

Celebrate Today

A friend of mine got a new job yesterday and I am going to miss her support at work, so of course I had to make her a card to congratulate her. I am not naturally a creative person so find inspiration from other stampin’ up demonstrators, I love that they all share projects. On Sam Johnson’s blog I saw a sketch she had used and decided to¬†start with that.

 

I have used the Suite Sayings stamps as they are the ones I have just bought, stamps for all occasions. I was going to put flowers around the balloon, but that just wouldn’t have worked and then I remembered that the Sprinkles of Life set had a stamp that looks like clouds so with a sprinkle of glitter embossing I felt the clouds were perfect.

So a list of Items used and link to buying them.
