Pear and Plum Summer Sillouettes

Two of my favourite colours are Pear Pazzazz and Perfect Plum  they look fabulous together, this is a card we made last Wednesday evening in class to use up some retired Ribbon and Designer Paper. the stamp set I used is Summer Silhouettes. This first card has the sentiment stamped in perfect Plum but the second card has the sentiment stamped in Sahara Sand. Which do you prefer I like the perfect plum sentiment.
I purchased a Tutorial from Chat Wzelski to make these cards but changed it up slightly by using En Francais as a background and Pear Pazzazz seam Binding ribbon.

Card Stock : Crumb Cake, Pear Pazzazz, Perfect Plum, Very Vanilla

As soon as I saw this card I loved it and knew I had to case it for my 2013 /2014 Catalogue launch. It was created by Monika Davis, the only difference being my sentiment is heat embossed in white and I changed the colour on two of the punched out Mosaic pieces in all there are 8 Mosaic pieces, four are mounted on dimensionals on the front and of course when you open up the card there are another four on the inside (whoops I just realised I hadn't taken a photo of the inside). Don't you just love the Whisper White Quarterfoil design printed window sheet, you get two 12 x 12 pieces of this in the pack of Quartrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Stamp set : Mosaic Madness, Create a Cupcake
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush, Versamark
cardstock : Strawberry Slush, Whisper White, Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Window Sheet
Accessories : Mosaic Punch, White Embossing Powder, White Bakers Twine, Sticky Strip, Tombow Multipurpose glue

A Bunch of Roses for a Friend

This is a card we made in class a couple of weeks ago using the stamp set Best of Flowers set, I just love this image of a bunch of roses, to colour the flowers we used a blender pen with Ink, the image was stamped then cut out by running it through the Bigshot with an oval Framelit, the front was also run through the Bigshot with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and Oval Framelits so in all  quite an easy card to make.
I am off out to my Studio to make some cards as I have been unwell all week with a cold and mild Ear Infections (I think the antibiotics are starting to kick in) I just didn't feel up to doing anything but now I feel better (except for a ghastly cough), I am itching to do some crafting and of course I will be back at work tomorrow.

Stamp set : Best of Flowers, Friendly Phrases
Ink : Black Stazon, Crisp Canteloupe, Old Olive,
Cardstock : Crisp Canteloupe, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Accessories : Big Shot, Oval Framelits, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder,
Soft Suede 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Blender Pen, Snail Adhesive, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue,

This is just the card to send to someone recovering (especially that nasty cold that is going around.  I cased this card from a Convention swap I received from Belinda Hennessey using the technique Emboss resist and fussy cut frame, I have changed my card up by using Pool Party for the base, I couldn't decide what sentiment to use and finally decided on Feel Better from Sassy Salutations stamping it in Versamark and heat embossing with white Embossing powder.

The Many Colours of Gorgeous Grunge

Don't you just love the new 2013 -2014 Stampin' Up! Catalogue. This card was made with a new Stamp set
called Gorgeous Grunge, this was one of the make n take kits we were given at Convention, I kept mine to make till I came home as I was on holiday for an extra week after Convention.
I love  the Colours ( using 3 of our new colours) and the grunge look of this card, it uses just one piece of Whisper White cardstock a few different techniques. Can you see the small piece of Washi tape, I had never used Washi tape before this and wondered why everyone was raving about it well now I know,  it is a quick and easy accessory to add to any project.
