New Home CAS

My Auntie Sal moved house on Friday and I'm so excited for her. It's a new start in a new place so I wanted to make a card to welcome her to her new home. Unfortunately, one of my favourite sets didn't make it from the Holiday mini to the new catalogue. However, it won't stop me from using it. I LOVE THIS SET!

2016 GRAD!

I'm going to a good friend's daughter's Graduation party tonight. I decided to come up with a "2016" card and thought the Z-Fold style would be perfect! A link to Dawn's video instructions can be found via this link

I was looking for a good "graduation" sentiment and thought this one fit the bill perfectly. It's such an exciting time for a young person. Good luck to you, Caitlyn!

Couldn't resist another Swirly Whirly card. This time I went right back to my basic stamping style. CAS, actually as simple as they come!

Swirly Whirly Birthday!

One of the new stamp sets from the 2016/17 catalogue we were allowed to pre-order is called "Swirly Bird". To be honest, I blew right past it when I saw it .... then I started seeing cards popping up on pinterest using it and it really is a wow!

Here's a card for my cousin, Kate, whose birthday was on the 16th. The swirly circle is cut from a coodinating framelit, along with the leaves and stylised roses.

Stamps : Swirly Bird, Party Pants (ret. SAB)
Ink : Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride

Birthday Wreath

My daughter's "Mother in Law" (she's not married, but her boyfriend's mum is her #2 mum) had a birthday last weekend and Sarah was invited to her celebration dinner tonight. I made this card for her to take. I used the spring wreath set which thankfully carried over to the new catalogue! If you take a look at the side views, you can see that I actually stamped the wreath three times and layered up the flowers. It took some time, but it was worth it. The dimension is great.

Stamps : Circle of Spring
Ink : Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette, Wild Wisteria, Perfect Plum, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Soft Sky, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive
Paper : Shimmery White, Perfect Plum
