HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY CARD!

I was asked recently by a friend to make a 1st Birthday card for her Grand-daughter.  All the requirements was that it was to be bright and fun.

So this is the result.  She was pleased with it.  It’s not her Grand-daughter’s birthday yet but I know that it is safe to post here.  You won’t tell right … 😉

I used the Number of Years set and the Large Numbers Framelits.  I am sad both these are going.  They are great for special numbered birthday cards.  I also used the Balloon Celebrations set for the bright, fun balloons.  They are easily cut with the Balloon Bouquet Punch.  The colours used for the balloons are Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight.  The card mat is Tempting Turquoise and the card base is Melon Mambo.  The Tempting Turquoise is a retiring colour.  A great big ‘1’ was cut from Silver Glimmer Paper.

The card was inspired by one on Pinterest.  I am not sure by whom now.

I hope you have had a wonderful weekend and maybe some stamping time??

Have a great week.  Visit again soon,

SWEET SOIREE – WEDDINGS!

I am still using the gorgeous Sweet Soiree Specialty paper, and on a mission to #usethatpaper. You don’t have to store this precious paper.  It is too lovely NOT to use. 

Today it is wedding cards.  The beautiful paper which is what I think are wedding cakes on it makes very quick, special cards.

You don’t need a lot with this gorgeous paper.  I added a Silver Foil mat under the paper, a sentiment, some bling and either some Silver Thread or Silver ribbon.  The sentiment for the one at the top is from Floral Phrases.  The sentiment on the card below is from Balloon Celebrations.   

I hope you like these cards and please, #usethatpaper.

Thanks for stopping by.

COLOURING THE SPRINGTIME FOILS PAPER – PART 3!

Yet even more ways to colour the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The last 2 posts have shown colouring with the Blends and sponging.  (head back to see those posts if you missed them).  Today’s post is colouring the Foils paper by Swiping ink over it.

I have shared some cards doing this in past posts too.  You can see them -> HERE and HERE. The first one shows a video (as good as it is 😉 ) of inking it up.  You can see it if you dare.  Great timing for our Wednesday WOW! this week as you can go back and review that.

The piece above was actually the piece I inked up in the video in the early post so I thought why waste that.  This time I used the Flourish Thinlits.  The sentiment is from Balloon Celebration.  So pretty and soft that mini Organza ribbon.

On the card above I swiped over Bermuda Bay on to a piece of the Springtime Foils Paper.  It needed a few swipes with it and I will say it can look a bit blotchy and you think “what have I done!!”.  Once you wipe over it with a tissue it smooths it out and looks nice.  Believe me. 🙂  The sentiment is from Beautiful Day again.

So now you don’t have to leave this paper plain (or you can).  How easy is it to colour the paper with ink in different way.

So have you got this paper yet?  I hope so.  You only have until Saturday.  And it’s free too.  Stock up on some card and adhesives and maybe throw in a stamp set that is sitting on your wish list and you are there are $90.  Then pick this paper up before it is gone.  Head to my store -> HERE to order it now.

Thanks for looking,

Jenny
