My oldest baby Paul and also recently married, turns 3o on Thursday. It's been a momentous 12 months for him ... getting engaged, then married and now a big "O" birthday!

I cannot believe he is turning 30 ... seems like just yesterday he was born, the years have flown by in the blink of an eye! My little pudgie, whingie baby has turned into a strong, capable and dependable young man and we're very proud of him.

So now to the card.

Went to Ingrid's house today (another SU demonstrator) and she showed us how to make this 'Envelope Card' that she made on a recent stamp camp. This is my version ....

I've used Urban Garden Designer Series Papers and the card colours are Basic Grey, Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze. Ink colours are Kiwi Kiss, and Not Quite Navy. The stamp sets are Happy Everything and In the Stars (retired). I used both of the Stampin' Up! Star Punches and the 30th Laser cut is from ..... I don't know, just bought it at a craft show ... oooh and some silver brads.

But wait ... there's more!!!!! How cute these look in real life, I made them from paper measuring 2.1/2" x 5". Sometimes I work better in the old measurements then in metric!

Sorry the picture is not so clear ... I must have the shakes a bit tonight!

Colours are Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla. Stamp Set is Oval All. I've used the Wide Oval and Scallop Oval Punches. A little piece of Very Vanilla 5/8" Grosgrain and the paper is from the Designers Papers .. Bella Bleu!

These are thank you cards for some of my wonderful customers! Thanks for your support girls!



Well here is the first Spring Card I made for my class this week. Unfortunately Chelsea told me that it was way too girlie for a boys card so I had to come up with another design so instead of banging my head against the brick wall trying to think of another design for boys I decided to make it for a girl and that was the card in the previous post.

Colours used in this card are Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Basic Grey and Whisper White. Stamp sets are Starring You, Starstruck and also 'son' is from Wonderful Favourites and the 'happy' is from Cheers and Wishes. I've used paper from Urban Garden and the punches are the Star and Small Star, Word Window and 1.3/8" Circle Punch.


Good Morning Everyone

I have a workshop on Tuesday involving folding techniques. The girls are going to making two cards. The first one is a Spring Card. Here's the design I've come up with.

I pulled out an old favourite stamp set called Scribble this (it was called Doodle This in the US)

The other stamp set used was Short and Sweet.

The checkered paper is from Sweet Slumber Specialty DSP and the card colours are Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Baja Breeze and Riding Hood Red. You can see that I've used my new favourite punch Scallop Oval together with the Large Oval Punch and I've also used the Boho Blossoms punch for the small flower in the middle of the large flower. Inks were Sahara Sand and Basic Black. Ribbon is the Black Gingham Ribbon and the white brad is from the 5/16" Neutrals Assortment Brads featured in the current Spring Mini Catalogue.
