Tea Party Card

Life has been keeping me very busy just recently, so I haven’t had much time for blogging or cardmaking, so only a short post today.  This is a card I made a few weeks ago, but thought I would share it with you.

This is one set of Designer Series Papers that I have hardly used yet. The colours are such a gorgeous combination, they are really pretty, feminine papers and use one of my favourite Stampin’ up! colours, Almost Amethyst.  I actually made this card for a fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator Leigh Stoodley, who does some beautiful work and is a great inspiration to me.

I have combined the Almost Amethyst paper with some Elegant Eggplant cardstock, it is such an “elegant” combination 🙂

Stamp Set: Say it with Scallops

Here is the next in the series of projects using the Sweet Nothings Simply Scrappin Kit.  This one was made for Makeesha’s Make it Monday series, which you can find out more about on her website, http://www.makeeshabyl.com.au/  The instructions for making this project is there too.

These are really quick and easy to make and you can use them for heaps of things.  I have made some little gift cards to go inside mine, but they would be great for giving cash or gift vouchers, and I’m sure you can think of lots of other ideas too.

Finally…. another card!

Some friends of ours had a lovely baby boy just before Christmas, who they have named Hamish.  I wanted to make a card for them, but found that I didn’t have very much when it came to new babies, so I had to work out something a little different, and this is what I came up with.  So here it is.  Congratulations Rob and Helen, Hamish is a lucky and very cute little boy!

Inks:  Blue Bayou, Whisper White Craft Ink.
