A special treat...

Seems as I have been so extremely lazy in updating my blog, I thought that I would add a couple of extra cards this week.

The first one is one of my favourite cards that I have made. I like the way that I did the "lace look", by sponging on the basic grey ink to the whisper white cardstock. And by using the eyelet border punch it becomes very effective.

Stamps: Great Friend
Paper: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Basic Grey,Walk in the Park DSP
Ink: Baja Breeze, Basic Grey,
Accessories: Half back pearls, Stamping Sponges, Stampin' Diamentials, SNAIL Adhesive, Paper Snips, 2 way glue pen, Eyelet Border Punch
The second card I got some inspiration from the front cover of the SU Idea Book & Catalogue.

Stamps: Fifth Avenue Florals
Paper: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Basic Grey
Ink: Baja Breeze, Basic Grey, Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: Stampin' Diamentials, SNAIL Adhesive, Paper Snips, Kiwi Kiss/ Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon
Hope that you enjoy them and I will try to update more regulary.

A Note for you...

I did this for a quick note for someone. I thought that it turned out quite effective, as I wasnt too sure of this stamp set at first. But once I started using it - I fell in love. :)

Stamps: Great Friend
Paper: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Basic Grey,Walk in the Park DSP
Ink: Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Basic Grey, Regal Rose
Accessories: Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Half back pearls, Stamping Sponges, Stampin' Diamentials, SNAIL Adhesive, Paper Snips, 2 way glue pen

Happy Birthday to Someone Special...

Ok, I thought that I would start off with something fairly simple and quick.
Using the Chocolate Chip cardstock as my base I decided to use the Parisian Breeze DSP (in the new Spring Mini - Fabulous!!!). I put the DSP through the crimper so the the crimping was across the page.
Then I tied the Baja Breeze ribbon in the middle of the card (tucking the ribbon underneathe the DSP so that it was not showing) and glued it using SNAIL Adhesive. Positioning my mat pack(its a paper piercing template so that everything is even) I punched the holes for the Pewter Eyelets using the Crop-a-dile. And using the chocolate chip ink stamping a birthday message (On Your Birthday stamp set - Page 113 Idea book and Catalogue) on Whisper White card stock, then punching it out using the Large Oval Punch and sponging the edges with Baja Breeze ink.
I used Stampin Dimensionals to attach the birthday message.
