Sunset Scene

I hope you all had a relaxing long weekend. We went away up north to Mangawhai for a couple of nights. We had a really lovely and relaxing time :-)
Well, this is one of the cards that we made at my scene class using sponges. I love to see how my ladies' cards turn out, as we all sponge differently.
I love the effect of the sunset with the birds together in the middle. I used the XL Bird punch and the Embrace Life stamp set. I definitely recommend the XL Bird punch, I've used it on lots of projects.

Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Embrace Life
Card/paper: Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: XL Bird punch, 1/4" Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon

I will post the other scene card in the next couple of days,
Debbie

June's Thank You Notes


Hi everyone, this is Sarah posting. I decided to make cupcake thank you notes for Mum to put in with her orders, because on June the 27th, it is my 13th birthday! Mum and I are going to have a girls weekend in Rotorua to celebrate!
I stamped the Crazy for Cupcakes images in black Staz-on on Whisper White card. Then I coloured them in using the blender pens and ink pads using these colours: Close to Cocoa, Pink Piroutte, Riding Hood Red and Summer Sun. You can't really see in the photo, but I embellished them using a truckload of Dazzling Diamonds glitter!

Hope you like them,
Sarah :-)
