Big Day Birthday Card

My favourite stamp set from "Sale-a-bration" would have to be the "Big Day" set and it's perfect to use on the chalkboard paper (now retired) for that real chalky look.

Party Time Event Project

Below is my project I made for the Stampin Up Party Time Event held in Canberra back in February. We could make any project we wanted as long as it was made using current stock.

I used the "Gorgeous Grunge" stamp set for the grungy background, the medium butterfly from the "Butterflies Thinlits" die set and the "Banner Banter" stamp set for the sentiment. I added ten long banners in different colours to my card base, then added the crumb cake layer with the butterfly cut out on top. I also added a white butterfly to the cut out section and fanned the wings upwards to give a 3D effect. Lastly I added the finishing touches of flowers and pearls.

Balloon Birthday Card

This card was based on my hot air balloon card and makes a perfect birthday card for anyone.

I used the cloud shape die from the word bubble framelits to create the blue cloud and the outline cloud. The cupcake punch was used to make the small clouds on dazzling diamonds glimmer paper.
The sentiment was stamped from the "Hello Life" stamp set. The balloon was made with 4 balloon die cuts from the "Balloon Framelits" die set, each balloon piece was gently scored in the middle and folded in half and carefully glued together to give the balloon a 3D effect.

Banner Birthday Card

This card is perfect to give to both genders and would certainly brighten up someones day. The card uses the "Amazing Birthday" stamp set from Stampin Up. I cased the design from Erica Cerwin, but decided to flip mine 180 degrees and use a different background stamp.

Flower Shop Grunge Cards

A couple of cards made using the "gorgeous grunge", "flower shop" and the "mixed bunch" stamp sets. The original design came from Valerie Moody.

Simple Flower Cards

So I wanted to show a couple of easy flower cards made with the same flower, but a different background. I used the "Beautiful Bunch" stamp set with the coordinating punch to make the flowers and added some pearls to the center. The leaves are made using different stampin up dies.

The layout of the card below was cased from Debra Currier. I have used different colours, flower and leaves and sentiment for my card.

For this card I just wanted to use a simple embossed background and added plenty of pearls to bling it up.

Another simple card made using the "Artisan Embellishment Kit" and a antique brad to finish it off nicely.
