Today has been a lovely sunny day and I have enjoyed it a lot especially with the bad weather to come this week. I have just a couple of little cards to show you as I have been busy creating 27 yes 27 cards for card swap I am doing with my wider team at a team training this weekend. I am so pleased with it and all the beautiful new In Colours I used on it but you will have to wait until after the weekend to see that. In the meantime……
Celebrating Anzac Day here in New Zealand A day we remember those who fell fighting for our country. Lest We Remember Them!
Last week I had a whole slew of occasions one of which was an old friend whose son was turning 5. Now you would think I would be showing you a 5 year olds birthday card but NO I actually have a graduation card for you. My dear friend has managed to survive 8 years at Playcentre with her three children and is sending her youngest off to school so I thought that achievement deserved some recognition too!
It is just a simple card using the lovely shoes from Just Married (Seasonal catalogue p 8) stamped in crumb cake and coloured using a Wisteria Wonder ink pad and my Aqua Painter. The sentiment is from an MDS stamp brush set called You Go Grad which I printed off. Loving that My Digital Studio!! I just bought the full version which at $27.95 I thought was a bargain. Anyway just so your not disappointed Boys cards will follow over the next few days and all made using MDS content combined with traditional card making.
Cant leave the boys out can we ? I used the mannequin die from the Dress Up framelits to hang my menswear on! Please dont look too hard at the photo or if you do please ignore the reflection of my T shirt in the acetate window. I was so annoyed when I spotted that as I was adjusting the photos. This card is based on a sketch for the Red Hot Stampers challenge and the colour combo is from the Inkspirational Challenge. The faux stitching pattern around the oval was a bit of lateral thinking. I used the Piercing template for the Apothecary Accents dies to create it using the long shaped one to do top and bottom of oval and then the rectangle with bobble end to join the top and bottom together. Inside is stamped the shoes from Just Married using Midnight Muse ink. My bot thought this card was pretty awesome!!
Coming soon to a demonstrator near you (that would be ME!) is the Seasonal Catalogue and in that catalogue is this gorgeous new set called Just Married which is what I want to show you a sneak peek of today. This card was based on the Mojo Monday 277 sketch
And here is my take on it
So what did I use:
Pool Party, Basic Black and Whisper White card stock
Delicate Designs embossing folders
Versamark and Basic Black Embossing Powder
Just Married and Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp sets
Basic Black and Pool Party Ink – Did you notice the shadow stamping on the sentiment – had to use the Stamp A Ma Jig for that bit!!
Decorative Label Punch
Ribbon for the Exclusive Sale A Bration Sycamore Street Button and Ribbon Pack ( spend $120 to earn this for FREEEEEEEE!)
Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz over the embossed matt – hard to see but its there
The real surprise is whats inside BUT you are gonna have to wait for that…… 7 Sleeps and counting!!
