I made 2 off these cards, as I made the 1st one, then I showed My Mum In Law how to make it, just like in a make & Take! Si I ended up with 2. I did my 2nd one slightly different. I sed Chocolate Chip (Again!) and Pumpkin Pie, plus Pastels and Versamark, EASY!! 3 Minute Card. Hardest bit Cutting out the flowers. Nice cute small Card using Embrace Life Stamp Set!
This was the most complicated Card of the day. Only because it had lots of elements to it. Bali Breeze Designer Paper, Brads, Signo White Pen, Chocolate Chip Cardstock, 2 Circle Punches (both sizes as before) Rose Red & Chocolate Chip Markers. I made ths into a long card so that I could add lots of elements and I didn't want it to fell squashed up
I like the simplicity of this card, takes about 3 minutes and has a great impact. I used white embossing for the flowers and Versamark for the middle part. Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Rose Red & Blush Blossom for the Cardstock. I used the corner rounder and "So Many Sayings" Stamp Set in the Hostess Benefits. Simple Easy and anyone car do!
I also like the colours in this card. It is just very mellow. Cardstock Sahara Sand, Groovy Guava & Chocolate Chip. Dashing Designer Paper (we all have some of this left over from Christmas Cards) Chocolate Chip Ribbon, Twine, a button, White Signo to make faux stitches. This is a Tri Fold Card too.
I love the colour combination of this card, and very easy to make. You will need 2 size circle Punches, I used 1 1/4" & 1 3/8" Stampin Up Punches. Same Stamp Set "Embrace Life" Cardstock was Rose Red & Bashful Blue with corresponding Inks. The Designer Paper is Bali Breeze. Took about 5 or 6 mins, due to making the window! I am going to try this card in lots of other colour cominations
This card only took about 4 minutes, I only used Stampin Up Products on the card, I used Apricot Appeal, Chocolate Chip, Summer Sun & Pumpkin Pie Cardstock. Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie & Summer Sun Markers. Embrace Life Stamp Set From the Summer Mini Catalogue, I also used "So Many Sayings" Hostess Stamp Set
My son is obsessed with wearing my Hubby's Gumboots to go and feed the Chooks. This was taken on Christmas Day (hens still need feeding!) I used Petals & Paisley Designer Paper. Real Red, Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal & Chocolate Chip Cardstock. Pewter Brads, Clear Buttons, Twine. Scallop Punch, Jersey Ribbon Originals. Schoolbook Alphabet Stamp Set. Certainly Celery Ink. I also used the super cute Flower Fusion Felt Flowers from the Summer Mini Catalogue. These are so easy to use, as they already have a hole punched through the middle, great to add that small accent!
Happy New year to everyone!! Late In know, but I have been away to Lake Brunner, it was so warm and relaxing, I took my Stampin Up Stuff with me, but it never got unpacked!! So I am now back and still chilled, but today I decided to get my wonderful stock out and card make, I am so pleased with what I achieved, I am going to add lots of photo's, its a little like buses! Not anything for ages then they all come at once. I made 8 cards and 1 Scrapbook page. I will list all the items I used to make them and also how long each card took! I only used 1 Stamp set which is EMBRACE LIFE in the 2008-2009 Summer Mini Catalogue.
I hope that you all had a great Xmas & New Year xxx
