Happy 30th Amanda!



I made this card for a work collegue that was turning 30! I have not used this 3D cake pop up for such a long time, must use it more as it certainly makes a statement when you open the card.

Cardstock: Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Glimmer Paper Silver & Red, Sweet Shop Speciality Designer Series paper.
Ink: Poppy Parade
Accessories: Scallop border punch, Poppy Parade Stitched Poly Ribbon, Paper Daisies, Glimmer Brads - Brights, Full Heart Punch, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet, Big Shot, Sticky Strip ( a necessity when doing projects like this as it holds so much better than anything else you can use), Scallop Circle Die, Word Window Punch, Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, Edgelits Dies.

Fox & Friends

I saw this design somewhere, sorry can't remember where but just had to make one similar. I changed it slightly. I think this stamp set will be retiring when the new catalogue comes out, I will certainly miss it as it is a great set for children's cards etc.

Friday Night Class







These are the projects made in the last Friday night's class.  We also managed to get them done in record time, usually the class runs a tad late, usually due to too much chatting but we managed to chat and get these made on time! It was quite a fun night and the girls loved these projects. The tutorial for the Gift Box and matching card can be purchased over at Craft Project Central HERE.

Cardstock: Pool Party, Daffodit Yellow, Whisper White
Ink: Soft Suede, Pool Party, Daffodil Yellow
Markers: Pool Party, Daffodil Yellow, Old Olive

Colour Challenge



The colour challenge was to use, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point which I must say was a real challenge! But I think it turned out not too bad at all. It is good to get out of your comfort zone and try colour's you would never dream of using together. The challenge was set by Inking Everything with Becky Summer Edition 2012.

Cardstock: Daffodil Yellow, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Ink: Daffodil Yellow, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point
Stamps: Extreme Elements, Grunge Rock
Accessories: Foil (non Stampin' Up!), Dimensionals
