Stampin Up - Flower Fancy

This is the final one made for my workmates. This uses the SU Flower Fancy stamp set. I am going to make a concieous effort to not use SU Kiwi Kiss (green) in my next few cards as although I love the colour, I just realised I use it ALL the time. Mental note to not use Kiwi Kiss. Oh that will be hard. :)

Stampin Up - Scallop Punch

This is not my normal style but as I needed to make a range of different cards for some work mates, I needed to think outside of my normal 'safe' colour range and style. I CASED the idea from Karen Dillon ( who is one of many blogs I visit to get (steal) ideas!
This picture does not do this card justice. I'm not often wrapped in my final product, but I was really happy with this one. I used a circle die in my Cuttlebug for a textured background on the white card, and stamped onto SU Pink Piourette a stamp from the SU Vintage Vogue set. But the best part would be the rosettes (flowers) made from SU Scallop Punch. I can see a number of cards using this embellishment as the centre piece. Only problem is it would not survive the post as the rosette was get absolutely flattened.

Stampin Up - Vintage Vogue

I love this stamp set, which I think I've already mentioned numerous times. This piccy is hard to see but it made using a textured white card and SU Chocolate Chip ink pad and SU Vintage Vogue. To add some more interest I used a little bit of glitter on the 'F' and some pearl bling. I achieved the multi-tone brown by stamping off first then stamping again to get a half inked image. So simple yet very elegant.

Stampin Up - Vintage Vogue and Butterfly Prints

I've had some more requests for cards from workmates so I thought I'd get busy this weekend and get a few made. I got stuck on 2 stamp sets which are my current favourites (SU Vintage Vogue and SU Upsy Daisy). I also got to play with my new Cuttlebug machine. This was bought by my other half for my birthday but I was allowed to play with it 3 months early! Bless his sweet little heart!!!

Stampin Up - Vintage Vogue Easel cards

Hi All, thank goodness we are at the end of another crazy week. Hopefully going forward will bring an ease of pace.

I made a couple of Easel Cards using the Stampin Up Vintage Vogue stamp set, one for my friends belated birthday and another for a work mates 50th birthday. Ink colours used was SU Always Artitoke, River Rock, Elegant Eggplant & Perfect Plum. I just love the Vintage Vogue set which is a close second favourite to Upsy Daisy.

Ladybug nappy cake

I made this nappy cake for my sister who has just had her 2nd daughter. At the time I made this we didn't know the sex of bubby, and as red is my favourite colour, this nappy cake was created. I used Stampin Ups large circle punch and a standard hole punch, glue and double sided tape. Very easy!

I also twisted some red wire and attached some of the ladybugs onto it to give a 'jiggly' effect.
