Card Class

I had a card class on Saturday. It felt good having people over to stamp! I showcased 2 sets, Swirly Bird and Jar of Love.

Baby Noah

I wanted to make a card for good friends of mine who have just had their third grandchild, a little boy called Noah. I saw this card by Julie Kettlewell recently and thought I'd use it as inspiration for this new baby boy card.

It's on its way back to England, hopefully it won't get squashed in the post :)

Stamps : Swirly Bird
Cardstock : Whisper White, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Real Red
Ink : Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Real Red
Accessories : Big Shot, Large Letters Framelits, Swirly Scribbles Thinlits

Under the Weather

A friend of work had some bad news concerning her mum last week and I felt so sorry but can't actually do anything. Well, I can make a card. I love the sentiment "wishing you brighter days" which is perfect for her. Aren't the love-heart raindrops lovely? I cut them out using the matching framelit and attached them to the card using a rolled up glue dot. They are tiny so dimensionals weren't going to do the job!

Stamps : Weather Together
Ink : Marina Mist
Cardstock : Whisper White, Marina Mist
Accessories : Big Shot & Umbrella Weather framelit, Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Marker, dimensionals, glue dots

Mint Macaron Pocket Card

I find lots of inspiration from a fellow English demonstrator Julie Kettlewell. If you haven't found her yet (unlikely) then take a look at her blog.

Julie made a lovely pocket card using the stamp set "Birthday Blossoms" so I thought I'd give it a whirl using the mini treat bag thinlit which I haven't actually used for anything yet. I used Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron which is one of my favourite combinations.

Stamps : Birthday Blossoms
Ink : Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake
Cardstock : Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Accessories : Big Shot, Mini Treat Bag Thinlit, Lots of Labels Framelit, Jumbo 1/2 Pearls, Aquapainter, Mint Macaron Lace Ribbon.
