Butterfly Basics Cards

Today, I have another gorgeous card that I cased from Steffi Helmschrott. I kept the same layout, but used different colours and added a banner to finish of the card.

I wanted a two toned look for both my butterfly and banner, so I used the baby wipes technique to achieve this.

Special Ocassion Birthdays

Need a card for an upcoming special birthday? Try a simple black card, add a pop of colour and some glimmer numbers. I was inspired by a card from Teneale Williams, but used various different products to achieve a similar look.....simple and elegant!

Hey, Chick Birthday Card

Sadly, sale-a-bration is finished for another year, and I hope you all received some nice freebies during the promotion.

The stamp set "Hey, Chick" was my favourite set, so I am sharing a card that I made using this set. I was inspired by the card on page 16 of the sale-a-bration catalogue, and decided to add the other two chickens on top as well. It was a little tricky, lining up the stamps so that the feet were in the correct position, but I got there in the end.

Jar of Love Card

I wanted to showcase another card using the "Jar of Love" stamp set with the coordinating dies. I was inspired by a card that I had seen on pinterest made by Pamela Staples, I loved the fresh summery colours she used and decided that I would case it making a few subtle changes.

I silver embossed my background splotches and the jar on vellum paper, then I cut another jar out of a window sheet and attached it to the vellum jar with some linen thread to hold the two together. This gave my jar a nice glossy look...like a real glass jar.

The jar was stuck down on the two sides, so I could slide the flower stems and leaves into the top of the jar. Lastly, I added a tag and some fireflies to finish off the card.

Foxy Friends - Wild About You Card

The new "Foxy Friends" stamp set and coordinating punch is proving to be very popular bundle. I love how versatile this set is and I have seen so many wonderful creations made with it, and I thought it was time to share one of my own designs...a very simple card!

Since I did not have a stamp that said "wild about you" I decided to print my own sentiment instead.

Casing one of the Cool Treats Cards Shown at Onstage

Unfortunately, I was unable to make it to the "Onstage" event in Brisbane last year, however was pretty excited that I was able to watch the event online. This meant I still got to see the sneak peaks and some amazing projects made by the stampin up crew.

I cased the below card from one of the cards that Shannon West showcased at the event. Naturally, I changed mine around a bit, to make it my own.

Casing the Sale-a-bration Catalogue

When I saw one the projects made in the Sale-a-bration catalogue, using the "Designer Tee" stamp set, I knew that I had to case the card. I liked the overall layout of the card, but wanted to change the colour scheme and add a bit more bling to jazz it up some more. I love these colours together and thoroughly enjoyed making this card.

Cool Treats Birthday Card

I will be sharing several cards made using the "Cool Treats" stamp set and the "Frozen Treats" coordinating dies, as this is my favourite set in the new Occasions catalogue. I love the colour combination they used in the paper and the possibilities to create stunning projects with this set are endless.
