Another Name Frame

As I was scrolling through my blog I noticed that I had forgotten to post a photo of one of the name frames I made last Christmas.  I made this one for a friend who I stamp with on a Tuesday night and at Christmas time we pull a name out of the hat and make a present for one of the group.  So this is what I made for Sandra.

I love the Cherry Cobbler with the Expresso and when I get around to making our own name frame I think I will go with this colour combination.

More from Stamp Club

These next three cards I made last Sunday at Shan’s stamp club for this month.  They are all very different but also so very pretty.

We used Vintage Vogue (an old fav) and embossed the flowers with white embossing powder then sponged around them to make them really stand out. I love this technique it is so simple but is incredibly effective.  I changed my card to landscape rather than a portrait card like the sample.

Another clean card where we coloured in the flowers and leaves on the stamp.  Nice and quick if you are in a hurry.

Love love love this card.  So quick and simple with  next to no stamping but gosh it looks great.  I love the new edgelits they make a card look so elegant.

Reason to Smile

This is a card I made at Sally’s June Stamp Club using the new Reason to Smile stamp set which is a freebie this month with Stampin Up!

Its a two-step stamp and quite pretty.  I’m definitely going to be getting one of these.

This is a really clean and simple card… not my style but it was nice to try something a bit different.

We cut out the heads of the flowers and stuck them on with dimensionals.  I was going to add a greeting but decided not to, I guess I can always add one later, I have lots of room.

Petite Purse Die

Well I got this new toy and once I started playing with it I really couldn’t stop.  This petite purse die makes the cutest little purses.  I made the two black and white ones first with the intention of  keeping one and giving one away to Sally, then I thought why don’t I make one for each of the girls in my stamp club.  So that is what I did.

Take a look at these super cuties.  Of course all purses have the recipient’s initial on the front in crystals.  As I have said in the past every girl needs a little bit of bling!!!!

Notice the little key hanging off the handle?  The first one I made was pretty simple but then I thought I would try embossing them.  Honestly can’t choose a favourite with these I LOVE them all!!!!!

This one was made in Baja Breeze for Suzanne.

Calypso Coral for Jan.

Sally’s purse is made with Cherry Cobbler.

Crumb Cake was my choice for Leigh’s elegant bag.

Pumpkin Pie and bright DSP for the very colourful Helen.

Finally Wisteria Wonder for the lovely Kay.

Hope you have enjoyed checking out my petite purses, they are super cute hey?

Thanks for visiting.


More Rue Des Fleurs Cards

Ok so this is probably my most favourite stamp set at the moment, and as these cards show it is so very very versatile if you just have a little imagination.

Sally saw some similar cards to these at the recent Stampin Up! convention that she attended in Canberra this month and wanted to make them with us as soon as she got back.  I’m so glad she did as they are just gorgeous, lots of work and a bit fiddly but gosh they look great.

Love love love this card.  I love black and white together I think it is just so elegant and that little touch of cherry cobbler really stands out.  We cut out the top of the umbrella and stuck it on with dimensionals.

We used the pleated ribbon in this one.  I’m not overly keen on the flower (I guess I can always pull it off if I choose too) but other than that I do love this card.  The new framelits are so easy to use and are one of my favourite tools at the moment.

As usual I am posting my most favourite card last.  Not sure why I do that!!! I can’t tell you how much I LOVE this card.  We gold embossed the corset and the umbrella then cut them out and created this gorgeous dress, fit for a princess hey?  The cherry cobbler ribbon on the hem just sets off the gold embossing so well.  This one was a bit fiddy but the result really is amazing.

Mixed Bunch

By now you probably know that I am involved in two separate Stamp Clubs with two equally talented SU demonstrators.  These next three cards are from Shan’s May Stamp Club.  We used the new Mixed Bunch stamp set and the coordinating punch.  Boy do I love it when Stampin Up! bring out matching punch and stamp sets, it makes like sooooo much easier….No more cutting.

Take a look at what we made.

This is a perfect card when you need one quickly.  We used a Simply Sent kit and just added a couple of stamps.  It was as easy as just sticking it all together.  Looks really good though don’t you think.  I love the scallop edge at the bottom.

Loving this one, even though yellow isn’t a colour I use much.  We used the rock and roll technique on this one to give the petals a bit of dimension.  Another quick card, with a little bit of scoring (can you see the two lines we scored?  One above the DSP and one below).

Although I love all of these cards this one is probably my favourite.  We white embossed the flower and used one of my most favourite DSP packs…. Attic Boutique.  I am loving the panels on this card.  I always worry about doing panels as I never seem to be able to line them up and have them equally spaced, however, I think I did pretty well with this one.  Don’t you think.

Kindness Matters at Stamp Club

Well here we go.  I am going to try to post these cards in the order I made them, although I do have a shocking memory so I may mix them up.

This first card is the card we made at Sally’s May Stamp Club meeting.  I really like this little stamp set, with a bit of imagination it can make some really lovely cards.

Take a look and see what you think. We used the DSP from the Sale-a-bration for this card and it matches just perfectly.  I’m very glad I have lots and lots of packets of it.

Cute hey?  We also partially stamped En Francais in the background.  I’m just loving how this lace is sitting it’s something I haven’t done before but I really like the look of it.
