With the beautiful weather we had this weekend, and the new stamps from the Spring Mini Catalogue I was inspired to head to the craft room and make some cards.
The Great Friends Stamp Set and the Walk in the Park designer paper compliment each other so well. The colours on the first card are: Regal Rose, Baja Breeze and Basic Gray.
This second card is such an easy and simple card to make. For the greeting I used the "Best Yet" level 1 hostess gift stamp set. The colours are: Pretty in Pink, Rose Red and Mellow Moss. I did the "Rock'n Roll" technique on the middle butterfly. It is such a cool technique and it looks great!
1.Ink your stamp up in the lighter colour ink.
2. Roll your stamp in the darker colour ink so that only the edges have the dark ink on.
3. Stamp your image.
I finished the card off by adding some Mellow Moss taffeta ribbon.
I have made more cards using the Spring Mini Catalogue goodies so keep checking in!

I am really enjoying UStamp at the moment. I had great plans to make a new project everyday but it did not work out that way. I did manage to make this cute slider box using the Tea Party DSP and Sweet Stems stamp set. For the greeting on the front of the box, I used "Cherish" from Baroque Motifs. On the cards I used Best Yet, Short & Sweet and Sweet Sentiments for the words.
It was a real privilege to spend time with the girls who came to my class. It was fascinating to see their different creative expressions. This class we made the lovely flower pot card, a lip balm holder and a chocolate bar wrapper.

Today I had my school holiday card class with intermediate aged girls. We made a free standing pop up card using Crazy for Cupcakes (from Dawns Stamping Thoughts), an envelope card and two bookmarks.
Doing another class tomorrow, so keep an eye out!

One of my favourite "In colours" is Baja Breeze. It is a very peaceful and soft colour. I made this box using the Fresh Cuts stamp set and it fits the Fresh Cut notes inside.This would be a lovely gift for someone.

I was so excited when Mum's parcel arrived, because I love the Great Friend stamp set. Mum and I got this idea from Dawns Stamping Thoughts.
I got a A5 piece of Baja Breeze card and scored it in half. Then cut off all the card on the front, except for one cm. Then I added a strip of the Walk In The Park DSP. I then scalloped a strip of Whisper White card, and adhered that to the card as well.
On the front I stamped the greeting and leaves from the Great Friend stamp set on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. For the leaves, I used the Baja Breeze ink and stamped onto scrap paper and then onto the Whisper White card, to make it more light and subtle. I used the Basic Gray ink for the greeting. I stamped the butterfly in Regal Rose, cut it out and used a dimensional to pop it up. Then I adhered it to a piece of Basic Gray cardstock.
Bye for now,
