Petal Pallete Stamp Set and Petals and More Thinlits Dies

Hi

Sorry, I have been a bit slack lately.  Two new grand babies and trying to finish a quilt does not leave much time for blogging.

Todays card

I took a different approach which this card.  I usually choose the stamps set and commence a card.  This time I chose the colour combination and  began creating this card.  I’m trying to get away from my usual colours and trying to branch out. 

I used the Petal Pallette Stamp Set and Petals and More Thinlits Dies as well as Eclectric Expressions Stamp Set and Tailored Tag Punch.   I use Bermuda Bay and Rose Red Cardstock with Bermuda Bay Sequin embellishments.

CASEing the Catty


Hi everyone,

I found time last week to enter CASEing The Catty.   My dad turned 90 last week, hence I needed a card.  





I CASEd the card showing on page 41 of the Occasions Catalogue.  
 
I created the card by using Night of Navy, Crumb Cake Cardstock and Gentleman Designer Paper Series.  I used Large Numbers Framelits, and Banner Triple Punch. The Happy Birthday stamp came from Your Inspiring Stamp Set. I created the Navy Happy Birthday by stamping on  the VersaMark Pad then stamping on Night of Navy Stamp Pad then onto the cardstock. I used the Heating Tool which created the glossy look.
 
I hope you like this card.  I am very happy with the card.   My dad liked it too.

More Wedding Cards

Hi everyone,

I made several more wedding cards recently.  As previously stated, these wedding cards have been a process for me.

They were created by using the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits.  I used Whisper White and Very Vanilla Cardstock.  The embossing folders are retired. 
 
I hope you like these too.

Wedding Cards

Hi everyone. 

Another busy week. Another grandchild born this week.  Last week we met a new little grandson and this week a little granddaughter arrived. So much joy.  Our grandchildren have double within the week. 

Today I am posting a wedding card that was made several weeks ago.  My hairdresser wanted some wedding cards with lots of glitz. It has been a process for me.  I dont do eleaborate or very gltzy cards.  So I wondered if they would be suitable.  Yesterday I visited my hairdresser and she bought another card.  



This one was created by using Vanila Cardstock, Gold Glimmer Paperback. Happy Wedding Day came fromtge Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set and Mr & Mrs came from a retired stamp set.  I think I bought the heart embossing folder from Kaizer Crafts.


I created this one using Whisper White Cardstock, Silver Glimmer Paperback. The embossing folder is also not Stampin Up. 

Most of these products can be purchased if you go to 'Placing an Order' at the top of the page.  If an order is placed for more than

Double Wedding Ring Quilt


Hi,
Today I thought I would share some of my other love, making quilts.  Creating a quilt is a more time-consuming task than making cards. 



These two quilts were wedding presents.   The green one was for my son and daughter-in-law.  If you zoom in and look at a melon, you will see there is a piece of music fabric in each melon.  Our son is a musician.  Green is Steph’s favourite colour and music is Kerry’s passion.   Our daughter and son-in-law chose the same quilt but in their favourite colours.  Carren chose blue, and John chose purple. 

These quilts are called The Double Wedding Ring quilt.  As you can see there are rings intertwining, with no end.  This pattern was a very popular quilt pattern in the Depression.  It was first publishd in 1928.  It continues to be a very popular pattern.  

If you zoom in, you will see each melon has 8 pieces on each side, with pieces at the join.  Lots and lots of curves. 

I hope you enjoy seeing my other crafts.

Blessings.

Whilst we know that she is having a girl she did not want everything all pink. So our theme for the day was pink, yellow and green.  Carren had a lovely time celebrating with her family and friends.  Now we just need to wait until this little girl appears.  Our daughter-in-law is also pregnant with a little girl and due the following week.   It is certainly going to get busy in our house. 

The Stamp Set is a retired set, however one that I will not sell off. I used Something for Baby Stamp Set and Baby’s First Framelits, Whisper White, and Daffodil Delight Cardstock.  Lets Celebrate stamp,came from the Amazing You Stamp Set which is free when you spend $90.  Sale-a-bration items are available until 31/03/2018.

Colour INKspiration Challenge

Another challenge. This time we were given three colours e.g. Night of Navy, Lemon Lime Twist and Whisper White colours.

It took my awhile to come up with a card that I thought was passable.  I know, I am probably too hard on myself.  I wanted to try something new, whether it was a card plan, or a new stamp set. I knew that I wanted to use Night of Navy Cardstock and Whisper White Cardstock, for the greeting and Fresh Floral Designer Series Paper in the Lemon Lime Twist.

Well it took three attempts before I was happy.




The above was my final attempt.  I took a photo and immediately loaded it onto the challenge.  

The last one uses Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set which was released in the new Occasion Catalogue. 

The previous cards used the same Cardstock but I used the Daisy Punch and Stamp. 

All of these products can be purchased if you go to 'Placing an Order' at the top of the page.  If an order is placed for more than $250-00 (before shipping) you will receive 10% in Stampin Up Rewards.
