Stamping and Cardmaking with a little side of Scrapbooking.....Bon Appetit !!

Tuesday, November 29, 2011


Whoops !! Sorry for the absence, but I'm back at work and in the real world after my maternity leave.....and stamping time is hard to come by !

I'm actually sacrificing sleep to stamp. And I LOVE my sleep so that is a real indicator of how calm this hobby makes me !

Anywhoo...on to the card.

Had to create a shower card for a customer. This card uses some MME lost and found is SUCH a pretty line. I rarely use this much pattern paper- or this little stamping!- on a card but it felt right.

Rose Red and Kraft - my new favourite colour combo !!

I emphasized the ribbon around the dummy's waist with some glitter and an i-rock pearl. Paper was stamped with an SU punch, and ribbon is SU kraft seam binding.

Stamps in the upper corner are PTI scattered showers.

Thanks for looking and enjoy your day !

One....or Eleven

I was asked to make a card for a little girls first birthday, and told that they had bought her a tea-set.
I thought it would make a great theme for a card...till I remembered I don't have any teacup stamps. So I purchased a digital image from SU and used it in their MDS software.
First I re sized it and repeated it for a background. I printed that onto some MME Lost and found patterned paper. Then sized them larger for the focal point
Then I thought about some teacup cupcakes I had seen floating around blogland...and the rest of the card just went along!!
Felt is PTI, the frame is and embossing folder from SU that I ran through a few times to make it smaller. Ribbon is SU seam binding.
When I showed my hubby the card he says to me......
So who's turning 11 ??
