Birthday Time

Published by under cards,general chat,punch art | Oct 29 2008

I’ve had Justine Clarke‘s song in my head all day after my 5yo DD called me in to watch it on Nick Jnr this morning:

It’s my birthday today
I’m older than yesterday
All my friends are coming over to play
And they’ll all sing Happy Birthday
                                        ®Justine Clarke – It’s My Birthday Today, from “I Like to Sing” (2005)

 

And it really is my birthday too! I got some lovely cards in the post today… aren’t they gorgeous?

Thanks to Janine, Jen, Keah and Juliana for your beautiful cards and to everyone else who sent me good wishes today.

And check out this *very* cute little fella. This is an elf that my newest team member Alicia whipped up today off the top of her head. Isn’t it amazing what you can do with a few punches and some imagination! Thanks Alicia for letting me post it here on the blog. (He’s not quite finished – yep, there’s no mouth or nose yet, but he’s sooooo cute isn’t he!?)

Punches used: 5 Petal flower punch, circle punches, Three For You punch (from Punch Box).

Have a great day!

Pumpkin Pie Thanks

True confessions time….
I have never been able to make a Pumpkin Pie card! I know it sounds crazy. Some people just lurrrrrrve Pumpkin Pie, one of the colours in Stampin’ Up!’s Earth Elements colour family, but I’ve just got this thing about orange I guess.

Anyway, I wanted something really bright for this one and I sure got it! And you know what? I think I like it :o) Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and White – what a strong combo!

Stamps: Heartfelt Thanks
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Pumpkin Pie striped grosgrain ribbon, 5 Petal flower punch, Spring Bouquet punch, Real Red brads, dimensionals, Summer Picnic designer series paper

One Sheet Wonder

Published by under cards,One Sheet Wonder | Oct 21 2008

I wanted to make a whole bunch of cards for a lovely group of crafty ladies I met recently, so it was
 “One Sheet
Wonder” time.  

First, I stamped an A4 sheet of Whisper White cardstock in Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy and Sahara Sand, with stamps from the Priceless stamp set.

I cut and scored a few pages of Bashful Blue card stock, and rolled the So Swirly Stampin’ Around Wheel® across them. Then it was just a matter of slicing up my stamped sheet into pieces, matting them on some more cardstock along with ribbon and then putting them all together. I wanted each card to be a little different, without taking all day.

I hope the ladies like them.

Short & Sweet

Published by under cards,specials | Oct 19 2008

A few days ago I wrote about the great promotion that’s running this month to celebrate Stampin’ Up!’s 20th birthday. Today I’ve been making some cards with another of the sets that are 20% off with any $20 order: Short & Sweet (p118 Idea Book & Catalogue).

I love how the stamps in this set are the perfect size for a tag or small gift card, but on a full size card they also complement other stamps beautifully. Perfect for when you want a happy-looking, casual sentiment.

If this set is still on your wish list, don’t forget you’ve only got until the end of October to get it at the discounted price.

This last card features an acetate window with ‘best wishes’ stamped in Jet Black Staz-On, although it’s a bit hard to see in the photo. First I punched out the flower window from the base card (3″x3″) with Stampin’ Up!’s 5-Petal Flower Punch, and did the same for the square of Fall Flowers Designer Series paper. After stamping the sentiment on the acetate, it was sandwiched between the base card and decorated paper.  This was lots of fun and I plan an making more!

I just had to get the 5-Petal Flower Punch after seeing Juliana’s sheep here. Oh how cute! I’m trying to be good with my purchases and not buy anything unless I can find five different uses for it, and that was the last one I needed. :)

Hope you’re having a great weekend –

Define Your Life #1: Create

Published by under Define Your Life series | Oct 17 2008

This is part 1 in a series of 26, where I bring you different projects featuring each of the words in the big mumma of stamp sets, Life Definitions (p28 Idea Book & Cat.). This was one of the 17 free stamp sets I chose earlier this year (gotta love this company!!!), and although I must admit that some stamps in this set haven’t yet seen ink, they *will* by the time I’m finished here!
