We Stamp Challenges

Wow . . 2 challenges completed in one day, and on separate cards.
My first card is based on the We Stamp Wednesday Challenge #2.

I have used Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette and Real Red C/S. Bella Rose DSP. The new individual "Happy Birthday" stamp from the Spring Mini, and the Jumbo Chocolate Chip Brad also from the mini. You can't quite see it, but I have used one of the flower stamps from "Fifth Avenue Floral" as a background on the pink pirouette. Also used a couple of Felt Fusion Flowers, the 1 3/8 & 1 1/4 circle punch's and I finally bought my "Cricut" out of the cupboard for the large Real Red Circle. Now it is on the bench I may actually use it.
The second card is the We Stamp Colour Challenge #2. Night of Navy, Kiwi Kiss, Rose Red and Whisper White.
For this one I have used Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White and Night of Navy C/S. Large and Small Star Punch's, Eyelet Border Punch, Rose Red Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon and a Rose Red Brad. I have layered the sentiment from "On Your Birthday" using Kiwi Kiss, Rose Red and Night of Navy Ink and shadowed them using the "Stamp a-ma-jig".
Hope everyone has a great night.

Spring Mini Ideas

These are some of the cards I showed for the Spring Mini Launch I had on Sunday. This is one awesome mini. Great sets for kids, mums and dads, it has it all. And as for the embellishments, who could ask for more. We did the train and thumper for our make n take.

This great mini also has some wonderful individual stamps, (the "birthday" greeting on the train card and the "flowers" on the "Scallop Oval" card). These are great for adding to other sets or for those who are just starting out. My favourite set is of course the "Oval All" which has a matching punch, as all my friends know I am a bit of a punch-a-holic. If I dont have to use use scissors I am happy.

If you would like to see some of these sets and the rest of the "Stampin' Up!" range please contact me and I would be happy to arrange a Workshop with you and your friends.

Have a great night.
