Daring Cardmakers

Sometimes I like to try and meet a challenge that has been set on a cardmaking or scrapbooking blog.  Today I met the challenge set on http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com/.  I followed the recipe given and here is the card that I made.

I Love My Oval Punch!

As a demonstrator, I have been able to buy items from the Mini Catalogue before April.  And I can now say that I am completely in love with the oval punches!  They are so easy to use, and the oval punch stamps are such a perfect fit.  I love it when everything is so well planned!

Here’s a little card I made, using the cute Forest Friends stamp set.

I used the Polka Dot Punches set for this card.  Although they are designed to fit into the shapes of the paper punches, I decided to use them for a background instead.

Thank You card

I wanted to make a little Thank You card for someone and decided to use the cute little bird from Fun and Fast Notes.  The sentiment on the stamp wasn’t quite right for the reason I was sending it, so I just wiped off the ink from the last part before I printed onto the card stock.  I think it worked very well!

I’ve also been using the Basic Grey Stampin’ Pad™ a lot recently, rather than black.  I quite like the softer look it has for stamped images.

Quick card

I needed to make a very quick card to accept an invitation to a child’s party.  What better than the little birdie from Best Wishes and More!  I used the Poppin’ Pastels technique for this.  I stamped with a VersaMark pad and then used cotton wool to dab on colours from Stampin’ Pastels.  acceptance-card
