Fabulous Florets

Our card we created last week in Crafty Creations was one I found on Pinterest some time ago.   051

As you are probably aware, this is my volunteer class which meets every Friday at the Caloundra Community Centre.   It is also a great way for me to use some of my favourite retired stamp sets & DSP.  Love it when I get more use out of them.  Mind you, they are usually sold at the class which sometimes puts some of my future classes in a spin, but we get there in the end.  Selling them at the class just means they are going to homes that I know are going to use them as much as me.

For the inside, I stamped the large leaf image direct onto Very Vanilla Cardstock with Wild Wasabi Ink & adhered to the Base Card – Pumpkin Pie.

Sydney Trip….

I’ve decided that one my main goals this year is to scrap 150 pages…..  I know, it does sound like a heap of pages, but I think with a bit of determination & planning it is achieveable.  When you break it down it is about 2 a week, maybe 3 some weeks, so I should be able to reach it!!!!

Anyhow, on with Scrappy Saturday which is not happening on a Saturday…..  Will have to fix that this week! 

I took my layout for this sketch from a past mini-catalogue – see they are still good for lots of ideas once they promotion has finished.  I’ve also created a sketch for you to have a try.

I decided to pick up the little bit of red in the photo – you can just see it in the dress & the light above Bonnie’s head.  The rest of the layout, I kept it with the colours in the photo – black & white.

I printed the little bit of journalling onto Whisper White Cardstock, printed it out & run it through the Bigshot with the Embossing Folder – Framed Tulips.  Now this folder I was not too keen on before I used it, so it has sat in my box since my purchasing it.  I have completely changed my mind now & you will be seeing a lot more of this folder!!!!

 After printing my photo, I kept a small white border before matting it onto Real Red Textured Cardstock.  I stamped my image direct onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Basic Black Ink.  This image was meant to be embossed, but completed forgot about it until I finished the layout.  Oh well, next time hey.

 I adhered both pieces of Whisper White – stamped image & the journalling piece onto the Real Red Cardstock, cut a small piece of DSP, tore the edges & adhered between the 2 pieces of Whisper White.

I adhered the Ribbon down the middle, tucked the ends under, tied a knot & adhered to Basic Black Textured Cardstock.

I stamped 5 small flowers using the Flower Punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, 2 in Whisper White, 3 in DSP.  These were randomly adhered to the page & Pearls adhered to the middle, as well as to the stamped images.

Another easy layout for you to try.

Greeting Cards – In Colours

G’Day Stampers,
 

For such a simple card, it has taken me a couple of days to finally finish making this set of greeting cards.  I’ve used Stampin’ Up’s!® new “Colour Coach® to help with combining colours using all the new “IN Colours” in Australia.  Takes the whole process of thinking of what colours to use, instead they are all there in front of you!
 

Not only did I use the new “IN Colours” but to go along with the colours I’ve used the new Designer Series Paper Patterns Stack.  Matches great with your cardstock.

Welcome…

It has been awhile since my last post but I’ve finally sat myself down & made a “Suspension Card”.  I’ve seen these around for sometime now, and always thought they looked too hard, but how wrong I’ve been all this time.  Again, no instructions, just took it from a couple of samples in a book & put them altogether.
