Cards - Surfs Up

This layout is from a Card Play day Template from a couple of weeks ago. The colours are Cajan Craze, Marina Mist and Sahara Sand.

Cards - Simply Said

I re-visited an old favourite using the Simply Said stamp set. This was the first Stampin' Up! set I bought. I combined it the Manhattan embossing folder and 3 shades of pink. I designed this one for a workshop last week. We used a Mother's Day greeting on the workshop ones, and it is just around the corner.

Cards - Sew Suite

I tried to give a vintage style to this card using the Sew Suite stamp set, Newsprint DSP.

Cards - Sew Suite

Yet another design using the Sew Suite stamp set from the A/W Mini and the Sweet Button embosslits.

Cards - Sew Suite

With Mothers Day coming up, this is the perfect stamp set to create a card for a crafty Mum.

Cards - Sew Suite

I just love this new set, it is very versatile. I used the Buttons Embosslit to create the buttons.

Cards - Sew Suite

The card layout is using Friday's Card Play day Template. I got the clothes idea from another Demo's card and just loved her creativity.

Cards - Sentimental Journey

My friend Fran has moved to the US for a few years, so I made this card, an A4 size, for all the girls to sign when we went to a farewell dinner for her.

Cards - Sense of Time

Boy was this one tricky to make. I gave up first time. The instructions were not easy to follow. However I am really pleased with my design. It was worth the frustration.

Cards - Make a Monster

I hadn't done a waterfall card for over a year, so I designed this one for a workshop last week. It is a really fun card to make and can suit any occassion.

Cards - Make a Monster

This was my card I did at one of my Card Play days, using the Template of the day.

Cards - Loads of Love

Designed this one for a friend as an 18th card. I simply cut out an 18 with the Big Shot, and placed it in the back of the truck.

Cards - Just Believe

I designed this card for a Craft group of 13 ladies I did a workshop for recently.

Cards - Full Heart

This is my own design, using the Heart idea, however I did see the turn back lapel idea on another demo's card. I masked the Dots embossing folder to create a smooth space in the centre of the folder.

Cards - Full Heart Punch

I cased this card from another demonstrator. I love the way she used the Heart Punch.

Cards - Friends Wheel

Jennie, my upline showed me this design using balloons. It works perfectly with the Boho Blossoms Punch.

Cards - Fancy Flower Punch

This card design just evolved, I was playing making the window frame, already had the flower made, then the design idea just flowed.

Cards - Build a Cupcake Punch

Just love the Build a Cupcake Punch and the Framed Tulips embossing folder from the A/W mini catalogue. I have incorporated a few different techniques on this card. It was fun to design and create and I love the finished product.

Card - Build a Cupcake Punch

The new Build a Cupcake Punch from the Autumn/Winter catalogue is the feature of this card. The colours are inspired by DSP Sunny Garden.

Cards - Birthday Bakery

I chose DSP Sunny Garden and colours to match. The stamped feature is on watercolour paper, which is a joy to colour in, as it holds lots of moisture without buckling.

Cards - Baby Tees

Here I created a window and stamped my verse from the Level 3 Hostess Set - Occassional Quotes on vellum cardstock and used it as the window pane. I cut just one of the Baby Tees from the roller and finished off the card with the Dot embossing folder and Itty Bitty Buttons.
