Fresh Prints Fun Cards


One of the things I love about working with Designer Series Paper is that I don't have to do too much thinking about colour - I use the colours in the paper and my project is easy to put together!!


The Fresh Prints Paper Pack uses Coastal Cabana, Real Red, Crumb Cake and Whisper White - so I've used those colours for my stamping and embellishment on these simple cards.


There are so many beautiful designs in the paper, it is had to choose which one I like the most.


I've added a couple of punched flowers and a bit of ribbon to give my cards some extra interest.

More bookmarks.


I'm loving the bookmark theme so much, I'm using these as my project for a class for some lovely little old ladies later in the week.  This is certainly a project that they will all get to use over and over again.


I've used the Oh so beautiful Watercolour Wonder Designer Series Paper as my feature piece for the bookmarks, and then I've coordinated punches and cardstock for the saying on the front.  


Each of these bookmarks uses one of the beautiful sayings from the Trust God stamp set.


My final little embellishment for these beauties is some itty bitty punched flowers with candy dots centres.


With some coordinating ribbon tied with bakers twine, the bookmarks and then complete!


The scallop top tag topper punch and the angled tag topper punch are so useful for this project.

Lovely Bookmark


I enjoyed the colours at the Just Add Ink Challenge this week so much, that I've repeated it in my bookmark.  I love to make handmade gifts, and I find a simple bookmark is sometimes all that is needed to give a special gift from the heart.


I've used the same elements from my page - Viola's lace, Flower Shop and Petite Petals adding the extra pop to the colour scheme.  My bookmark features one of the beautiful sayings from the Trust God stamp set.


To create the bookmark I've used the scallop tag topper punch and then threaded some chevron ribbon through the top and tied it with some Bemuda Bay taffeta ribbon to finish it off!

Lovely Colours for a Challenge!




I have decided to use these colours for my class this week when we do a 12" x 12" scrapbooking page.  The bemuda bay really pops with all these gorgeous neutral colours (I really do LOVE neutrals!!)



I have used the Crumb Cake as my background and also to stamp the flower shop line stamp on the background of my Very Vanilla panels.  The Baked Brown Sugar (what a wonderful colour) I've used to stamp Viola's Lace and my title from Happy Watercolour.


And the lovely Bemuda Bay was used for the little Petite Petals flower as my highlight.   


A bit of hessian, some Victoria Lace Ribbon, and a few pearls - voila - what a pretty page ! (smile)

Watercolouring


I recently did a children's class and these were the beautiful card the children made using some gorgeous watercolouring.  The card also has a pouch inside which holds a coordinating bookmark.


This is card which works well as a gift too!

Pretty Flowers


I have been inspired by a wonderful Youtube Video for Stampin Up! UK which showed some beautiful ideas for Easter.  These flowers were made onto a cute little gift packaging for eggs, but I have adapted it to be a card front - and I think it would be really lovely for Mothers Day which is coming up soon.


The flowers are made from the large Oval Punch and the grasses cut from Old Olive using scissors.

simply Fresh Prints


The Fresh Prints Paper Pack is just full of gorgeous paper all sized perfectly for cards.  On my card here I have cut one of the sheets in half and then added a few banners to create a quick card.  My greetings come from the Perfect Pennants stamp set and they coordinate so well with the Pennant Framelits.


I have coordinated the colours to go with the Fresh Prints Paper - Coastal Cabana and Real Red.

Just Add Ink Sketch challenge

 


My creation is much simpler than others, but I think it suits my Mum perfectly - and this is ready for her birthday coming up soon. 



The colours are Bemuda Bay and Coastal Cabana with white accents.


The little flower in the corner was made by punching a circle from  Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet, sticking it on the punched scalloped circle,  and then spiraling some of the Coastal Cabana ruffled ribbon around until it is fully covered.


I am really happy with my little card and I hope you like it too!!

Woo Hoo Banners



This is the page we will be doing at our Mums and Kids class next Friday afternoon from 4:00 to 5:30 pm..


I've used the awesome banners and elements from the Springtime Hello Simply Created Garland Kit.  There are lots of colours and patterns in the kit and they are all self adhesive, so this page was a breeze to put together!


I've added a few Petite Petals flowers stamped and punched, and some cute sentiments from Just Sayin'.
I love how this turned out!!  (smile)

Our Get Together


At our recent Stampin' Up! Get Together we made these lovely projects, and I would like to share them with you.  I really enjoy getting together and creating lovely cards and gifts, all while chatting and sharing with a gorgeous group of ladies.  


Robyn's card was a very cute lil Easter Card!!  Love the ribbon, peg and doily detail.


Heather's card was a divine double fold with a gorgeous butterfly motif.  Yummy.


I shared a sweet little card made using the scallop tag topper punch.


And Tracey gave us a brilliant gift idea - wrap some washi tape around some little tea light candles - Great!

A little piece of striped vellum and some washi tape and it is complete.  The little square frames are made with 2 different square punches.
