Balloon Adventures Week - Card #1

Friday night was my Colourful Cards stampin club night, and WOW....did we have fun. We started the evening out with toffee coffee cake and tea, then moved down to the craft room for some fun. Club ladies get the added benefit of a 3D project to go along with the two cards we make, and seemed so thrilled with the little valentine box, I may have to do a video on that.

One table of gals worked on this card....using the beautiful Party Animal designer series paper, and sentiment from Balloon Adventures. Check out the really cute blue party hat hanging from the sentiment. This is from Party Animal embellishment set. Super cute.

While the other table of gals worked on this card.....using the fabulous Inside the Lines designer series paper, (which is a Sale-A-Bration product and FREE with $60 order) and the new water colour pencils.  Then they played musical chairs (without the music) and switched tables to make their second cards.

I meant to get a photo of all my gals holding up their cards, and time. Here is the product list...if you would like to make one of these cards yourself.

So In Love Week - Card #3

So the gals from my Stampin Up group are blog hopping again and this month, we had to come up with something New..New..New from the Occasions catalogue or Sale-A-Bration flyer.  So in keeping with my So In Love is my submission.

I used Old Olive for the card base, and the New stamp set So In Love, and the New Stitched Shaped Framelits and the New Square Shaped Framelits.  The sentiment is embossed in white embossing powder and the flower was coloured using sponge daubers and two colours of ink.  List of products used is below:

So In Love Week - Card #2

You all know how much I love to CASE a new stamp set from the catalogue. One of my other favourite ways to inspire a new card, is to CASE someone else's design.  Not necessarily using the same stamp sets or DSP, but just the layout. This sample of So In Love was one such design taken from a card I received at Onstage in November.  

I changed up the stamp set, DSP, sentiment and ribbon, and if you check out my video tutorial below, you will see the original card I CASEd the design from.

Product List


Cardstock Base:  5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

So In Love Week - Card #1

I am so excited, its the start of a new week of samples.  This week I chose, "So In Love"....because I am so in love with this new Occasions catalogue!!  

Here is my first sample for you....and has very special meaning for me.

I made this card for my eldest son, Andrew, who performed last Thursday evening at a bar in Ottawa.  It was his second solo live performance as FTRSL, but first for Mama here watching.  Andrew has always been a drummer in bands...two very successful local bands, but branched out on his own, writing, recording and mastering all his own work.  Now performing live!!  It was so excited, I just had to mark it with a card.  Using this suite...Falling In Love...I needed something a little masculine.  I figured it was really a night to remember, but this sentiment would do just as well.  Watching how this young man has matured and grown with his music, big things are destined for his future, it certainly is ...a day to celebrate!!

Drop back on Wednesday for another So In Love sample..and video tutorial.  

Have a great week.
