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.

Giraffe Card

I’m still in love with the Wild About You stamp set.  It’s so perfect for cards for little boys!  And I love the Jumbo Wheels as well.  They’re so easy to use – even my 3 year old can use it – and he loves them!

A bit of Chipboard and More Turquoise …

I used a chipboard circle to make a border for the sentiment on a birthday card today, and I couldn’t help reaching for Tempting Turquoise again!

I coloured the chipboard by pressing an ink pad onto it and it looks really good – much better than leaving it bare.

Don’t forget – all chipboard is 25% off this month!

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.

Birthday Cake Card

I really love the size of Love Notes.  They’re so dinky and work so well with the Fun and Fast Notes stamp set. 

This little birthday cake stamp is so cute and I just had to use pink to colour it using Stampin’ Pastels™.  The thing I love most about Stampin’ Pastels™ is that you get the WHOLE range of Stampin’ Up! colours in one set.  What amazing value for money!
