New Magnolia Stamp

A birthday buy last week, as I couldn't resist this cute Magnolia stamp after seeing so many nice cards on various galleries and blogs. I decided to use my Woodware punch down the side for a different effect and my new Copics:

Stamps: Magnolia Stamp, SU Level 2 Hostess Stamp Set: Cause For Celebration, Occasional Greetings.
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Pretty In Pink, Whisper White.
Ink Pad:
Momento Tuxedo Black, Versamark Stamp Pad.

Accessories: SU Gingham Ribbon - Light Pink, Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Copics, Corner Rounder Punch and Woodware Lever Border Film Strip Punch.
Card Size: A6.

Bye for now,


Crazy For Cupcakes Again...

This card was CASED from a card made by Michele Yoos otherwise known as plaid pony which I received for my birthday in a BRAK group over on SCS. I kept everything the same, just changed the sentiment because I didn't have "Happy Everything".

Stamps: Crazy For Cupcakes, Wonderful Words, and Basic Phrases with a little use of the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig for creating "Your".
Cardstock: Rose Red, Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White.
Ink Pad:
Chocolate Chip, Versamark Stamp Pad.

Accessories: Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.
Card Size: A6

Have a good weekend everyone.


Crazy For Cupcakes...

These cards were just too cute, so I CASED these from someone on SCS. I love the wide grosgrain ribbon, so just had to make these cards in Chocolate Chip and Rose Red to match. These cupcakes were stamped onto cardstock, cut out and stuck with dimensionals onto the Whisper White cardstock. Glossy Accents were added to the flames for a 3d effect and a subtle background of birthday balloons were stamped with the Versamark Stamp Pad.

Crazy For Cupcakes.
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Night of Navy, Bashful Blue and Whisper White. Rose Red, So Saffron, Regal Rose and Whisper White.
Ink Pad:
Basic Black and Versamark Stamp Pad.

Accessories: 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon - Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, SU Marker Pens for the candle flame and cupcake sprinkles and Glossy Accents.
Card Size: A6.

Thanks for stopping by.


Happy Silver Anniversary

Remember I posted a sneak peek the other week for an Anniversary card? Well it's now safe to upload in full, so here it is below:

I used a variety of SU and non-SU products to make this card. I love the SAB stamp set "Polka Dot Punches" and couldn't resist heat embossing these in gold for some added definition. Very Vanilla cardstock was used in the background with a computer sentiment personalised with the happy couple's names.

Thanks for stopping by.


New Stamps...

After having a little spend up last week with my birthday money, I decided to buy another couple of cute Penny Black stamps. I couldn't resist those hedgehogs so I bought a number of different golf themed images as these are handy for male cards.

Along with some Stampin' Up! cardstock, oval punches and ribbons, and playing around with "Basic Phrases" stamp set, I was able to play on words and create "Fore You". Here's what I created:

Stampin' Up! cardstock, ink and ribbons used are Regal Rose, Night of Navy and Ballet Blue. I love how the debossed side of the Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots closely replicates the surface of a golf ball.

Bye for now,


Friday again!

Hello people,

It's been another busy week here and the sun is shining :) Thought I'd upload a few more cards that I have been working on from the weekend.

After liking the scallop dresses and getting the hang of how to make these, I made a few more:

After making the Certainly Celery card the other day and uploaded it, I experimented with the oval punches and a sentiment for this one. I'm undecided whether it needs this or not, so made all the other ones without! lol.

Hope you like,
