Butterfly Punch meets Very Vintage

I felt like playing with my Butterfly Punch yesterday so with it and a few supplied I came up with this:


I really love how inking the edges softens the tone of both plain and patterned cardstock. Originally when I put this card together I didn't ink the DSP or the Baja Breeze cardstock – but it looked too stark, too harsh. So I got out my Sponge Dauber and my Chocolate Chip Ink Pad and lightly daubered the edge of both the DSP and cardstock.... and can you see the little bit of Dazzling Diamonds on the butterfly.......


To make this card you will need the following Stampin' Up! supplies:

Ink – VersaMark, Chocolate Chip
Card Stock – Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip
DSP – Parisian Breeze (from the Spring 09 Mini)
Accessories – Clear Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Dazzling Diamonds, Two Way Glue Pen, Dimensionals, ¼" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, Butterfly Punch

Happy stampin'

A Challenge

 Well..... for the first time ever I am taking part in a Just Add Ink Challenge. This week the challenge is to use the following colour combination:

I did a thank you card as I recently had my hair done – a real makeover – shorter and PURPLE....(who knows I may even get around to taking a photo and finally putting a photo of myself up here on my blog!) I have had so many compliments (even from males) that I just had to make a card to send to my hairdresser to say "thank you.... I LOVE MY HAIR!"

To make this card I've used Teeny Tiny Sentiments from the current Autumn Winter Mini - it has so many different sentiments, most of which you can use with the word Window Punch (just love that punch!) I've also used Echoes of Kindness – a level 2 hostess set, some ribbon and brads

 I made a matching envelope as the card is 4" x 4" and even stamped inside the card.

Hope you like it.

A Ruby Red Thank You.....

I had a workshop yesterday morning at our local basketball stadium with some basketball mums whilst our kids trained for 1 ½ hours (yes – that's how long they train for when they play "Rep" basketball). I asked whether we could use a meeting room instead of just getting together in the kiosk area and was told we could so I thought I would make a thank you card to express my appreciation.

I used the colours of Ruby Red, Basic Black and Whisper White as our team colours are red, black and white.

I stamped the gratitude definition from "Life Definitions" (lots of useable definitions in this set – great for scrap booking pages as well as cards) and I used "Eastern Blooms" for the flower which I stamped in "VersaMark"& "Ruby Red" and then clear embossed. I didn't have any Ruby Red Ribbon so I used my "Ruby Red Marker" to colour some "Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon". After decorating a white paper insert my card was ready....... (sorry about the photography!)

Until next time.......
