Love My Postie

It's not that often that I can say I love the mail that my postie brings.  It's usually just bills.  But this morning he is the best because he brought my brand new Holiday Catalogue.  Now I am spending the day just drooling over all the gorgeous Christmas products that will be available from 1st September.  My wish list is just growing and growing.  Can't wait until I can share this catalogue with you all.

You only have until 31st July before you can no longer place an order for products from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue.   8 days only until the end of July.

To make sure you don't miss out on any of the products you love, as we don't know what products will be carried over into the new main catalogue, contact me now to place your order so you are not disappointed.

Bright and Cheery Birthday Card

I would like to share with you today a nice, bright and happy birthday card.  I have used the Reason to Smile stamp set which was an exclusive set now no longer available.  However, any of the lucky ladies who did receive this set can use it to re-create this card or it would be easy enough to substitute another of Stampin'Up!'s gorgeous stamp sets.

The colours in the photo are not as clear as they could be but I have used Whisper White, Daffodil Yellow and Pumpkin Pie and in real life it is rather bright.

This was an extremely simple card to put together.  I just love the beautiful flowers in this stamp set.  This little card is going out to all my stamp club girls.  Hope they like it.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Daffodil Yellow, Inkpads - Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight, Stamp Sets - Reason to Smile and Happiest Birthday Wishes (Hostess Set), Pumpkin Pie Taffeta Ribbon

July Stamp Club Projects

For this month's Stamp Club our  projects were created by using a few different embossing techniques.

The first card has had the background piece of cardstock randomly sponged, run through the Big Shot machine and then embossed with gold embossing powder.

The sentiment has also been embossed with gold embossing powder.

These techniques have given this card a really gorgeous vintage look.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - River Rock, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Island Indigo, Inks - Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Marina Mist, Versamark,  Gold Embossing Powder, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Perfectly Penned Stamp Set, Vintage Brads, Chantilly Lace, Pinking Hearts Border Punch

Our next card has had the background piece again run through the Big Shot - but this time the embossing folder was inked up with versamark embossing ink and once the background piece was run through the Big Shot it was sprinkled with black embossing powder and heat set.  Next we randomly gold embossed sections to highlight  areas.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, First Edition Specialty DSP, Inks - Cherry Cobbler, Versamark, Embossing Powders - Gold and Black, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Blossom Punch, 1 1/4" Cherry Cobbler Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Pearls, Happy Birthday Sentiment from a retired set.

I will be providing instructions for this card on a page I will set up specifically for tutorials.

Happy Birthday Dad

The card I am sharing with you today I created for my Dad's birthday which was yesterday.  We had a family lunch together which was really nice.  Hope you enjoyed your special day Dad.

As I have already given him cards I have created with the sailing boat, the motor bike and the Open Seas stamp set  I decided I needed to come up with something different to those typically male cards.

I decided on using the French Foliage stamp set, which I have to admit I absolutely had to have at the time, absolutely love it, but just don't seem to have had the time to get around to using it yet.  I chose some complimentary colours (Soft Suede, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip and Cajun Craze) and randomly stamped images all over my background of Very Vanilla.  Completed the card with the gorgeous Happy Birthday sentiment from the Perfectly Penned stamp set.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Inkpads - Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Cajun Craze, Stamp Sets - Perfectly Penned and French Foliage, Bakers Twine and Brads

A Special 70th Birthday Card

 I helped my Mum create a special 70th birthday card yesterday.  We spent all day trying to make sure it was just right.

The card needed to have somewhere for a gift card to be included and also a large area for approximately 10 people to write their birthday wishes on.

Mum had it in her mind that she wanted to use purple and silver as her colour theme with pretty flowers etc as embellishments.

This is what we came up with together.

The front of our card was embellished with handmade flowers, ribbons, silver glitter paper and I used my beautiful new lattice die (unfortunately not an SU die).

Our next two pages has the place for the gift card on the left and decorated birthday greeting on the right.

Our last two pages is where everyone can add their well wishes.

We tied our card together with some ribbons and added a little heart charm.

Loved helping to create this very special card and hope the recipient enjoys it as much as we liked to create it.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Wisteria Wonder, Concorde Crush, Silver Glitter Paper, Vellum, Inks - Versamark, Embossing Powder - Silver, Stamp Sets - Mixed Bunch,  and Perfectly Penned,  Punches - Boho Blossoms, Circle,  Blossom,  Scallop Oval, Oval, Leaf from Bird Builder, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border, Itty Bitty Shapes  Dies - Beautiful Wings, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet (Non SU Products - Lattice Die, Various Flowers, Charm, Martha Stewart Punch, Alphabet Die
