Array of Sunshine for the Newlyweds

For the Newlyweds with Array of Sunshine. I did this card as a top folding one so I could emboss the lower section of the front using the Vintage Wallpaper folder. I then measured a Whisper White piece to fit the un-embossed part where I could then stamp the design. To over lap the flowers I stamped the middle one first then stamped it again on a Post it note. I used the cut out post it note flower to stick over the stamped one so i could stamp the other two flowers. I moved the Post it flower around so I could stamp the leaves.

Finally some inspiration

You will be pleased to know I havent been shaken beyond repair by all these aftershocks. Sadly I havent been able to make time to stamp either but i do have some cards I made for a present for my step mother for Christmas.

This one used a Hostess stamp set – Array of Sunshine – and a sentiment from Bring on the Cake. The colours are Blushing Bride, Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz.

Tomorrow I will show you the twin of this card I tried to use the same sketch for two cards.

Leeston Bowling Club
**PaperCrafters Day**

Work on your own projects in a fun friendly environment.  Try out the Bigshot. Bring something for a shared lunch and $5 entry. I will be doing 2 demonstrations during the day and in the afternoon (1-3pm) teaching a “Scrapbooking for Beginners” class we will complete a page the cost for this will be $10 inclusive. So come for the whole day or just for the scrapbooking class  give me a ring or email me to book your place.
p.s If you have other crafts you want to work on on the day you are more than welcome to bring those along too.
This is a double page layout I did recently I had no papers that went well with these photos so I created my own and then used stamps and some markers to doodle all the designs together. I used Soft Suede and Island Indigo inks with stamps from For Everything and hostess set Array of Sunshine plus the Broadsheet Alphabet. Amazing what you can achieve with so few supplies!

Flower Double Fold Cascade Card for Mum

Yesterday was my Mum’s Birthday Im not going to tell you how old she is cos then you might work out how old I am!! But according to a form she received recently she was born in 1650 yes thats right I said 1650!!

Anyway I made her a floral version of the double fold cascade card we made at my last class using one of the new hostess sets ARRAY OF SUNSHINE which worked beautifully although it did mean an awful lot of fussy hand cutting. She is worth it though, My Mum.

Here is a view from the top

What I used:

Stamp Sets: Array of Sunshine (Hostess) Create a Cupcake (for the sentiment)

Ink Colours: Wisteria Wonder, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Concord Crush and So Saffron.

DSP: The Green spot DSP – Just Add Cake pack and the Concord Crush one is from a retired hostess pack.

Tools: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Dimensionals, Decorative Label Punch

I have managed to size this card so it fits in a standard C6 envelope. I have quite a few birthdays coming up, funny how they all come at once!
