Stamping 411 – SSC 144

I have used the latest Stamping 411 – SSC144 sketch to make a belated birthday card for a fellow scrapbooker on No Crap Just Scrap  (& ESAD-SU).  I had planned to have this card made & posted but I can’t believe the time just snuck up on me & now I’ve had to make a belated card as her birthday was over this weekend….. sorry Sharon!  (My first ever belated birthday card I may add!!)

I used Razzle Dazzle stamp from the Summer Mini which is about to finish in a couple of days.

I wanted to add a flower from the Pretties Kit, but as they were white & I had used Very Vanilla I coloured it on my stamp pad to match my cardstock Cameo Carol.

Inside the card with verse

Card: Tempting Turquoise, Very Vanilla, Cameo Coral

Stamp: Razzle Dazzle, It’s Your Birthday, On Your Birthday

Ink: Tempting Turquoise

Other: Word Window punch, Scallop Edge punch, Designer Label punch, Pretties Kit, Brad, Dimensionals, non SU embossing folder [Swiss Dots]

Oh well it will be in the post on Monday so I guess I’ll just make her birthday wishes stretch a little further, anyway  Happy Birthday Sharon.

Until later, happy stampin’

Secret Sister Card – March No 1

I’m in a Secret Sister swap with ESAD-SU (Extra Special Australian Demonstrators for Stampin’ Up!) and Round 3 just started this month (March).  It runs for 3 months & the 1st two months we have to send 2 cards & little gift (all handmade using SU product) & the 3rd month 2 cards & a bigger gift.

Yippeeeeeeeeeee I got my first card today & now I feel very loved & special…… its soooo pretty & my SS (secret sister) has used my favourite colour PINK and my old time favourite stamp set Priceless.  So here is her card:

Just love the precise detail & finish on the card – don’t you agree??  Thank you thank you thank you……. look forward to the next couple of months!

Until later, happy stampin’


Baby Card

I used the Just Add Ink #9 sketch again to make this quick baby card.

I’ve been busy playing with the new mini stamps & thought I must have a play with the current Summer Mini stamps Animal Stories & Sweetness Unlimited before they expire at the end of the month.  So don’t forget its into the last week of being able to order from this catalogue as there is no knowing if these stamps will make it into the new Idea Book & Catalogue later in the year.

I ran the ink pad over the top section of the card just to give some texture to this section.

Card: Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Close to Cocoa

Stamp: Animal Stories, Sweetness Unlimited

Ink: Baja Breeze

Other: Scallop Edge punch, Dimensionals, non SU 1/4″ circle punch, Designer Label punch

Until later, happy stampin’
