Inlaid Thanks

Thanks 1

So, for those who couldn't make class this morning, here is what you missed out on. We made an inlaid embossed card using all Stampin Up products. We also made a technique card to place in our binders as well. I found this card while checking out the challenges for last week, and thought that this card style would be great for a class.

Lazy Saturday

Here is the card that I made this afternoon. I saw this card in the latest edition of Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine, and although I didn't have any of the listed items, I decided I would try and turn the card into a Stampin Up card. I am really pleased with the way it turned out. I am now going to try and convert the other card in the magazine to Stampin Up. So all credit for these designs come from Rachael Merrick.

Pumpkin Pie
Chocolate Chip
So Saffron
Whisper White
Coloured Buttons to co ordinate with card stock
White Gel Pen for Faux Stitching
Spellbinders Die
Copic Markers

And for the life of me, I can not remember what this stamp set is called. When my memory comes back, I will fix this post. So, Please, if anyone knows, comment and let me know what it is so I can list it. Thanks. Okay, I remember now after searching on Google. (Gotta luv Google). Bundle of Joy is the stamp set I used here. Retired, but still in my collection of stamps.

Stepping Out

Here is my second card using the Build a Roo from Stampin Up. I saw this style of step card on the net and decided I had better have a go at making one. The template I used came from Creative Moments with Sandy.

I have used Chocolate Chip (Still my favorite), Pretty in Pink, Real Red and Whisper White.

Colour Throwdown - Mojo

This is the first card that I have made with the Build a Roo set from Stampin Up. I am going to try and make five cards using this set. The colours came from the Colour Throwdown Challenge and the card design came from the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. The colours are Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo and Certainly Celery. I have stamped my Kangaroo in Staz on Ink and used my copic markers for colouring.

One for Dad

Here is the latest card I have made for my boys to give to their father for either Birthday or Fathers Day. Not quite sure which one as yet, because they are only one month apart. We Australians celebrate Fathers Day in September, so I guess I am ahead with this one.

I used Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Whisper White and Real Red. I am quite hooked on these colours at the moment. I used matching Designer papers, label punch cut in half, string for the button, real red brads and a button that I found in my stash, that just happened to have the right colours in it. I was going to use some of my On Board letters, but I pulled out and dusted off my Cricut machine and cut the letters from Night of Navy Designer Paper instead. I can't believe I have not used my Cricut for such a long time now. Almost two years. Wow. Is that a sign of having toooooo much stuff or what?

I have used the inspiration of Verve Stamps for this card, although when I look at the original to the finished card here, there really isn't much that is the same.
