Vintage Vogue

The month of May is a very busy month for me as there are five family birthday’s including my daughter Katelyn (she turned 2).  I didn’t get photos of all the cards I made but I did take a photo of a card I made for a friend whose birthday is also in May.  I used the Vintage Vogue set (p16 Mini) and made a spring card.  The card sits flat in the envelope but springs open and stands up when you take it out.

I also travelled to Sydney last weekend for my first Stampin’ Up! Convention.  I had a great time and met some really lovely people.  I got heaps of inspiration so I hope to do some regular posts in the coming weeks to show you my latest projects that have been inspired from convention. 

Cheers Deb

Rose is a Rose – Happy Mother’s Day

 

Happy Mother’s Day!!  I hope that all of you are getting as spoilt as me today! 

My card today is for my mum!  Now that I am a mother I appreciate her more than ever!! Mum also enjoys making cards so I needed to ensure I made a card with the wow factor.  So I chose the Rose is a Rose (p 78 IB&C) stamp set.  There are so many different flower options to choose from in this set!  I did lots of cutting out with my paper snips and I masked the small flowers in the background when I added the leaves.  I stamped the sentiment on vellum and used  pop-up glue-dots to raise it.  The vellum gave a nice ‘see through’ look but by raising it avoided the words getting too lost in the strong background colours.

Circle Circus Birthday

This card I made for my brother-in-law:  Happy Birthday Craig!!  I cased the card from the Simply Sent Card Elements: Flower Power page 140 of the Idea Book & catalogue (IB&C).  Copying a card design is often a quick and easy way to make a card in a hurry.  I used the Circle Circus  stamp set (p104 IB&C) as it is a great set to use for male cards.  Did you notice the staple on the card?  This was part of the design but is also a cheap way to add another embellishment to your cards.
