Masculine, Stampin' Up!


I can finally show you this card.  It was my nephew’s 21st last week and we only got to see him today.  He is quite the musician so I thought this card was just the thing for him.  I have made this card before quite some time back.


The card base is cut with the Top Note Die.  Place the fold of the card just inside the side edge on the die so it won’t cut through.  I cut a second piece and cut it smaller to create a layer on the front to slip the Word Window punched “Keys”.  The ’21’ is cut from Silver Glimmer Paper and layered on the Whisper White flagged card strip.  The little black “dots” are Adhesive Rhinestones that I coloured with black permanent Marker.  I think it was well received today.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting me today.  I have been playing “Dress Ups”  today.  No I didn’t dress up in funny clothes.  I will show you shortly!!


cards, Challenges


I have been very good today.  I got stuck into my swaps for Sydney Regionals and finished them except putting them in the cello. bags.  So, I got to play!  I checked out Just Add Christmas challenge earlier and it was ‘Just Add Christmas’. You can see all the lovely creations here.  Since I have been getting in Christmas mode I wanted to play along.  I have been working on this card in my mind for days so it didn’t take too long to put together.  Here is my card for the Just Add Christmas challenge.

The backgrouund paper is from the Newsprint DSP.  I have used the Victoria lace coming in the new Summer Mini with an Antique brad.  It is a bit hard to see but I have added some Adhesive Pearls to the ornaments.  Here is a run-down of what I have used.

Stamps: Tree Trimmings, Christmas Classics.

Ink: Real Red, Old Olive.

Card: Real Red, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Newsprint DSP.

Other: Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Top Note Die, Victoria Lace, Antique Brad, Sponge, Adhesive Pearls.

OK, got to run!  The Wednesday crazy afternoon begins between school pick-up, swimming lessons, cricket training, cook dinner and team meeting this evening.  Be back later with some more Christmas Creations!
