Bloomin' Party Invitation

http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806
My daughter Charlotte is celebrating her 6th birthday soon - and this is the invitation I have made for her to hand out to her friends.  I really wanted to use the dies from the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits set as Charlotte really loves "Ever After High" Dolls and they have a love heart locket as the emblem.

I also really wanted to use the new "It's My Party" Designer Series Paper Stack (from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue 2016) as I just love the bright colours in this set.  The invitation card was really easy to make - just cut out the heart and flowers using a Big Shot and Precision Plate. Adhere a piece of It's My Party paper to a folded card, stamp a sentiment, adhere the heart and flower die cut pieces (I have used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen) - finished!

Happy Birthday With A Beautiful Ride

http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806
Today I'm sharing with you a card that I made for our friend Peter's birthday last week - but I thought it was very appropriate for Australia Day too!  He loves green cars apparently - so I gave the VW Beetle a cool "paint job" to look like the cool muscle cars with the colour change car paint.

I coloured the car with my Derwent Water Colour Pencils and then used my Stampin' Up! Blender Pen to blend the colours together. I then added Stampin' Up! Crystal Effects to the car to give it the glossy effect of a high end paint job.
http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806
For the background panel I have stamped the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from the free Sale-A-Bration set "Perfect Pairings" using Cucumber Crush ink.  You can pick this Sale-A-Bration set for free by placing an order of $90.  Order online via my online store or contact me if you would like me to place an order for you.
http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806
Over the stamped panel I have sponged Cucumber Crush and Daffodil Delight ink.  See below for the other "ingredients" I have used to create this card.

Happy Australia Day to all of my Aussie friends!

Choose Happiness :)

http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806
This is a card I started making a while back and meant to finish but was distracted by other projects.  I was cleaning up my craft desk and discovered it - all of the elements pretty much finished - I just need to stick it all together!
http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806
The set I have used here is called "Choose Happiness" - it is a lovely set to work with - and I love the friendship sentiment "When I need a friend you're there".
http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806

I really enjoyed doing paper tole with the stamped flower image. I repeatedly stamped the flower with Blackberry Bliss ink - sometimes doing second and third generation stamping (where you don't re-ink before stamping).  Then cut out the flowers - cutting right in on some areas so that when they were layered up it resembles the layers of real life flowers.  I've added touches of Dazzling Details to bling the flower up a bit too.

A Quick Sale-A-Bration Card

http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806
Here's a very quick card created using free Sale-A-Bration products.  I have used the "Just For You" sentiment from the "Botanicals For You" stamp set and a flower stamp from "Flowering Fields".  For the sentiment I have used Stampin' Write Markers to colour the stamp.  The flower stamp has been inked with Archival Black ink and then coloured with Stampin' Write Markers.  That's it! - A super quick but lovely card.

These Sale-A-Bration stamps are available in wood or clear mount.

Have A Dino-Mite Birthday!

http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806
Here's a card created for a little man celebrating his third birthday. I've used lots of bright and funky colours for the dinosaurs from the "No Bones About It" stamp set (Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue p.43).
http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806

From the Occasions Catalogue I have used the "Number of Years Stamp Set" and coordinating Large Numbers Framelits Dies to make the number 3.
http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806
Love how it pops with Real Red ink!  Products used to create this card are listed below.  Please contact me if you have any questions.

Stampin' Up! Picture Perfect Hummingbird

http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806
I've been dying to play with the new Picture Perfect stamp set from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue. I really love the layering stamps that this stamp set has.  Here I have used the hummingbird stamps - four separate stamps that you use to create a beautifully coloured image.  I have gone for an ombre look with graduated tones of blue, aqua, green colours (check out the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and Create With Connie and Mary Challenge I'm playing along with below). The stamps are labelled 1, 2, 3, 4 so that you know the order in which to stamp them - simply overlaying the previously stamped image.

http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806
I've also had my first play with the Botanical Builder Framelit Dies.  So so pretty and I am loving the 3D aspect where they pop off the page!  I have also used the coordinating Botanical Gardens Jewels - they are divine.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my card.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  The ingredients for this card are listed below:

Today's challenges I am playing along with are from Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and the Create With Connie and Mary Challenge.
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says: Ombre.  What is ombre? The definition of ombre is the French word for color that is shaded or graduated in tone.
Create With Connie and Mary Challenge is a layout challenge this week.  I have flipped the layout to portrait for my card.

Stampin' Up!'s Botanicals For You Sale-A-Bration Set

I love this Sale-A-Bration set "Botanicals For You".  The sentiments are lovely and the flowers and leaves are so cute.  It is very easy to create a quick card like I have here with this set.  This is just a piece of Whisper White cardstock A5 size folded in half and stamped on.  I have also used the new Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add highlights between the stamping.

The "Botanicals For You Stamp" set can be yours free if you place a $90 order during Sale-A-Bration.
