Mixed Bunch Blitz

I am a bit behind on my Birthday Fairy cards and my normal Birthday cards.  So sat down to try and catch up a bit.  Went a'googling to find some inspiration and came a cross this lovely card so I decided to make a couple. 

I think they turned out quite pretty.  Though I didn't have four of the same buttons, so I had to substitute for a smaller one.  Then I decided to change colour schemes, but I just could get the same effect with the DP I had chosen, so played around a little and came up with this ....

Materials Used
Stampin Up - Stamp Sets - Apocathery Art - Cardstock & Inks - So Saffron, Very Vanilla, Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery. Accessories - Mixed Bunch Punch, Celery Grosgrain Ribbon, Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon, Dots EF, Scallop Oval Punch, Pearls, Antique Brads.

Asheley's Engagement Invites

Looks like I am on a roll hey??

Well no - I am just catching up on some posts that I haven't gotten around to - and am scheduling them for every couple days (the plan is that I would have blogged for a week and then will have some thing new to share by the time these all run out!!! That's the plan!!)

My good friend Asheley came and visited me while in I was in hospital having my appendix out!! and what was she flashing on her finger???? Yep a gorgeous Engagement Ring!!! How exciting!!!!

Congratulations Asheley and Scott!!!

So anyway a couple weeks later she came over and we made up her Engagement Invites.  The night before we were texting back and forth as I was trying to get as much organised before we sat down to make them.  So here is what we came up with in the end.

So after lots of texts, lots of cutting, 6 hours later we had 50 Invites finished!!

Easter Gift Card

Each year my friend Denise and I just give each others boys $5 for Easter instead of chocolate, this way they can put it toward something that they are saving for (and the lids just get way too much chocolate these days anyway!!) So I made up these little gift cards.  They are 12x12cm square and just cute enough as an Easter card for boys :-)

Both the same - but slightly different matting and brads. Here's a close up.

Materials Used
Stampin Up - Stamp Sets - A Good Egg. Cardstock & Inks - Early Expresso, So Saffron, Tangerine Tango. Accessories - Brads Non SU - Kaiser Rewind DP

Another Skater Card

Before I could start on my Mixed Bunch cards last week I had to finish off two that I had half made!! This one and Jayden's birthday card. I have just about used up the last of this paper pad by Kaiser - yay!! I should be able to squeeze a few more out of it, but they will be a challenge as I am left with just a couple sheets but I will do my best :-)

I love these skater vectors that I downloaded from the web!! I just cut them out and recolour over them with a black marker - or sometimes I will clear emboss them for a nice shiny look.  This card was inspired by Richelles Card - using up scraps!! So I did!! I think it has turned out quite nice too!! So added another skater and whalah - boys card :-) That is now one boys card in my stash!! lol

Materials Used
Stampin Up - Stamp Sets - Party Punch, On Your Birthday.  Cardstock & Inks - Basic Black, Night of Navy, Whisper White. Non SU - Kaiser Rewind Paper Pad.

Good Friday Stamping

Morning :-) Today I am going to sit here and catch up on my blogging while I have my morning coffee - as I am so far behind!! I tend to go AWOL a bit (sorry)

Anyway...on Good Friday my good (hee hee get it!! haha) friend Cindy and I had a catch up and made some cards.  We decided to use a sketch that I had used previously as she wanted to make some and I wanted a couple more.

And then this is the second card I made. I messed around with the brad and flowers for ages - I think Cindy made 3 cards before I had settled on the layout, but then I just had to put them together.  I made two of each design.

Materials Used
Stampin Up - Stamp Sets - Hello Blossom, Tea Shoppe, It's Your Birthday. Cardstock and Inks - Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Early Expresso, Always Artichoke, Old Olive. Accessories - Crochet Trim, Pearls, Boho Blossoms Punch, White Taffeta Ribbon Modern Label Punch, Scallop Trim Punch, Three Flower Punch.  Non SU - Doodlebug Brads
