This is another of the cards from the November class. The ladies had a choice of which orientation they would use. This one here I sponged the strip of card stock with Crushed Curry, then Stamped the stems and the stamens in Early Espresso, and the flower buds in Cajun Craze. I then randomly stamped some smaller flowers from the Summer Silhouettes in Cajun Craze as well, This card literally took three minutes to make! What the ladies did then was to make a gift card using the same method and stamp set, and to finish it all off they made an envelope from the New Envelope Punch Board, I love this new little tool from Stampin Up!

Recently Sunny Challenges and Creations held a challenge that was to use Washi Tape.I decided to make a card that the washi tape was used in the embellishments. I also used the new Envelope Liner Framelit to make a matching envelope Liner. The card base was Whisper White, as was the oval in the centre of the card. Using the Ovals Collection Framelits I cut firstly the white oval then on my piece of Gingham Garden DSP I place two of the ovals onto the Magnetic Platform and cut out my frame. The card base is also covered with a piece of Gingham Garden DSP. I stamped the flower stems using a retired stamp set Pocket Silohuettes, which I inked up using Gumball Green Stamp n Write Marker. On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I ran strips of Gingham Garden washi tape diagonally across it then punched out the butterflies and then using the Itty Bitty Punches I also punched out some flowers (to attach to the flower stems) and a couple of hearts and smaller butterflies for the envelope. I attached the two larger butterflies to the card front using mini glue dots and then place three small rhinestones on each. I used the largest Envelope Liner framelit adhered it to the envelope, just under the adhesive strip and then attached the two smaller butterflies and two hearts. This is such a lovely card and it really does look so much nicer IRL. Till next time, happy stamping

Hello stampers, I have been away from my blog for ages. Pressing issues concerning family have tied me down and not allowed me the time to be in here as often as I want. This week on Sunny Challenges and Creations Vicky set the challenge and the only stipulation was that we had to use Pool Party. Make sure you head over to Kris and Vicky's blogs to see what they have created for the challenge, and remember it runs for two weeks so you still have plenty of time to enter! I needed to make a get well card for my sister who is currently in hospital so that is what I have created for the challenge. I used a Whisper White base then inked up the C clear block with Pool Party and stamped it twice diagonally across the card front. I then inked up the A clear block and stamped it in the centre. I love the Summer Silhouettes stamp set, and stamped the stems and stamens in Night Of Navy, the flower heads in Crushed Curry and the sentiment was also stamped in Night Of Navy. I punched out 3 small butterflies in both Night of Navy and Pool Party and placed them diagonally on the top right hand side of the card. Small basic Rhinestones were placed on the Pool Party butterflies and they were attached to the Night of Navy butterflies using mini Glue Dots. The sentiment I stamped in Night of Navy on Whisper White, and punched it out using the Modern Label Punch and this was then layered onto a piece of Pool Party that was also punched out using the same punch and put on dimensionals on the bottom left hand side of the card. I think it is a quite pretty little card and very very quick to do. Thank you for stopping by, until next time happy stamping!
