Dragonfly Dreams July Challenge

The theme for July at Dragonfly Dreams is Midsummer Delight, and our sponsor is Lawn Fawn.
It is, of course, mid Winter here in Australia, so I quite enjoyed thinking about Summer and all the things I love about the warmer months, in particular, spending time at the beach in the sunshine.
So my card for this challenge is focused on the beach and sunshine. 🙂

I have used some papers from the new Stampin’ Up! Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack for my card, with the lovely bright and summery colours. I have combined some stamp sets for this card, the sun is from the Kinda Eclectic set, the star fish and little crab are from the Sea Street set, and the sentiment from the Work of Art set.

Happy stamping!

Kinda Eclectic Quick Cards

A couple more very quick and easy cards, this time using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set.

These could be in any colours you choose.  For this card I have chosen some of my favourite Stampin’ Up! colours – Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party and Crisp Cantaloupe.  I have coloured the rhinestones using Blendabilities to match the colours.
Or how about his colour combo for a Christmas card?

 

This time I have used Real Red, Garden Green and Crushed Curry.

Try your own favourite colours, and just have fun mixing and matching colours.
Happy stamping!

August Stamps in Your Letterbox

The feature stamp set for the month of August and for Stamps in Your Letterbox is Kinda Eclectic (Page 164 of the Catalogue). This is a really versatile stamp set and heaps of fun to use, so for those of you who are signed up for Stamps in Your Letterbox, you are in for a treat this month!

Today I am sharing a pouch card which I have made using not only Kinda Eclectic, but also the Envelope Punch Board.  The card fits into one of our standard size envelopes so that you can send it in the mail.

 

The card itself is a flat card, like a post card, but there is plenty of room for writing on it, and it slides into a decorated pouch made using the Envelope Punch Board.

 

I have used some of the bright and cheery papers from the Sweet Taffy Designer Series Papers (Page 186), and the “Birthday Greetings” comes from the Four You Stamp Set.  They are a little hard to see in the photo, but I have added a little bling with some Sequins (Page 208) on the butterflies, along with some Thick Baker’s Twine (Page 207) around the top of the card to make it easier to pull the card out of the pouch.

It’s not too late to take part in Stamps in Your Letterbox for August, just contact me to sign up, and you can find out more information here.

Happy Stamping!
