Bold Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Birthday Card

A good friend of mine had a birthday recently and I made her this card.  She loves bright colours, flowers and of course Stampin' Up products - who doesn't!

The card base is Melon Mambo, with Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie & Daffodil delight popping this flower right of the page.  I have used the new scallop dots ribbon in Melon Mambo and added a twist of the promotion ribbon from a few months ago.  The flower is created using scallop punches and the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch.

Stamp Sets: Teeny Tiny Sentiments.
Paper: Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Brights DSP.
Ink: Old Olive, Melon Mambo
Cool Tools: Framed Tulips embossing folder, Big Shot, Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die, Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch, 1 3/4 " Scallop Circle Punch, 2 3/8 " Scallop Circle Punch.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Season Card

When I first saw this stamp I was not overly impressed.  Being a bird stamp I was shocked at my reaction - I love a good bird stamp!   But after attending stamp club and actually using the stamp I fell in love with it.  It looks great when it is water coloured.  And the vintage look goes perfectly with this little birdy.

Cherry cobbler cardstock with a touch of Mocha Morning Specialty paper, an antique brad and some cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon all combine to give this card a vintage look.  The little berries have been highlighted with a cherry cobbler pen & crystal effects to give them a shiny look. 

Stamp Sets: Beautiful Season
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Soft suede, Water Colour paper, Mocha Morning Specialty paper.
Ink: StayzOn Black.
Cool Tools: Crystal Effects, Cherry Cobbler marker, Water Colour Wonder Crayons - Regals, Antique Brad.
Ribbon: Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon.

Stampin' Up! Delicate Doilies & Lovely As A Tree Card

Well I figured it was about time I started making some Christmas cards.  I love the new Delicate Doilies stamp set and was thinking of a way to make it christmassy.  Lovely As A Tree has a great tree for xmas cards so I have combined the two here with cherry cobbler, crumb cake, old olive and early espresso.  

  I used Champagne shimmer paint to highlight the leaves on the tree - here is a closer view:
