Welcome back. I created this card for the keen stampers who come to class twice each month. I do a second set of projects for them and this was one of them in November. I started with an idea from Tammy Beard, her card had the gift holder and was a lovely simple design that I wanted to use however hers was a birthday card. I then found a card by Rochelle Blok that used the Merry Christmas To All stamp set and Merry Christmas Thinlits. So I cased them both to come up with this Merry Christmas card with gift voucher holder.
Petal Promenade Keepsake Album The Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper is pretty stunning! Beautiful floral images along with the gorgeous marbled back side make this paper irresistible. Fresh flowers were used to create this paper collection. See the process of creating the images of the blooms for the paper here. My project today is CASEd from Kim McGillis she posted this album for a blog hop in September, see her post here. A friend of mine recently had a baby girl and I was trying to decide what to make for her when I saw Kim’s post. I thought her design would be perfect.
Saturday’s Memory Box Class It was a fun day with everyone turning a pizza box into a Memory Box with a pull out accordion folded section for notes, words of encouragement, photos etc. The accordion part sits inside the pizza box and we decorated the box and pages using the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (DSP). These gorgeous little Memory Boxes can be used as a decor item as well as a cute way to preserve cherished memories and special occasions like weddings or new baby arrivals, even engagements.
Petal Palette Pocket Card Petal Palette is such a versatile and sweet set and here it coordinates with lots of other stamp sets and dies. This card uses many of my lovely stamp sets, Petal Palette, Jar of Love, Hello Friend, Timeless Textures and Floral Phrases as well as Eclectic Layers, Lots of Labels, Petals & More and Sweet Cake Dies. I cased this card from Jackie Aitken because I wanted an extra special card to acknowledge a friend’s amazing achievement.
This is my second paper art canvas and I’m totally in love with it. This is my style, soft with a little bling and some white space.
I love the simplicity and bright cheery colour of this card with pretty flowers made with my new favourite set Jar of Love. While different to the Jar of Love Shaker Card it remains soft and feminine. This time I used Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive and Soft Sky. The flowers are created using a 2 step stamping method and the light colour was simply the same Watermelon Wonder ink but stamped off first.
