A big birthday

This is another birthday put together for a class  – if you want to come to one of these awesome classes check my SU business site for my schedule 🙂

It was inspired by a make and take, put together by my ‘granny’ upline Madonna, when she came south of the border for a team meeting. Changed to a Colour Coach combination of Elegant Eggplant, Melon Mambo, Baja Breeze and fiddled just a little bit this is what I came up with.


The circles are “mushed” together after going through the Big Shot with the lattice embossing folder (carried over from the Summer mini thank goodness and therefore still available)

A cupcake birthday

Guess what???? It’s another one of those birthday cards……you didn’t believe me when I said I’d made a lot, did you?

This one features the very cute cupcake punch from our new Autumn/Winter mini.

Crumb Cake seems to be spending a lot of time on my desk recently- the pink has disappeared for a littel while!! And I have been enjoying playing with ribbon in a few different ways, this one is a very easy ruffle, the messier the better- I like it 🙂

Happy Easter

The O’Neill’s are camping – at least the boys have the great outdoors to run off some of that sugar 🙂

Another birthday

Here comes another one of those birthday cards, and there’s a touch more brown on this one too! You might have to look closely but there is a small strip of Early Espresso hiding on all that Pumpkin Pie. Have I told you how much I love Early Espresso??? That’s why there’s only a small strip of it- it’s about all I could spare for the 9 kits I had to make up considering I’ve been through about 3 packets all on my own 🙂 

Back to the card……..made for Stamp-a-stack using Party This Way (I know I told you how much I like this set) instead of cutting out all the balloons a few of the circle punches made quick work of the card.

A colour combination from the Colour Coach and versamarked balloons on the background for texture and it came up pretty well.

  • Stamp Set – Party This Way
  • Cardstock – Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso, Whisper White
  • Ink – Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso, Versamark

A brown birthday

Here’s another one of those birthday cards I made, and this one has brown in it, Soft Suede to be precise.

I have found the ‘Party This Way’ stamp set to be very versatile, I’ve used it for girls, boys and adult cards.

This one also uses Cherry Cobbler and tearing to give it a bit of a masculine feel (I think).

 I do believe my brother-in-law got this one for his birthday.

A bright birthday

I recently made a stack of birthday cards, some for workshops, some for stamp a stacks, and some for the boys to take to birthday parties. This is one of the ones I liked the most. It’s super quick to put together and has been a hit with a few little girls Ned has been hanging out with 🙂

I know, it’s bright isn’t it!!! This colour combination came straight from the Stampin’ Up colour coach and I do like it.

Yep pink and flowers AGAIN…. I will definitely show you some brown stuff again soon.

Bye Emma…

A co worker and friend, Emma, left work this term (she will be sorely missed) and this is the card I made for her.

Her favourite colours are blue and green so that was my starting point….

and this saying just seemed very appropriate for her new endeavours…..’go confidently in the direction of your dreams’.
