Lovely 3D Flowers

I was seaching around various blogspots last night and I came across a very talented crafter named Sandy Quail at Scrappy Habits.
Sandy appeals to my style of card making and 3D projects so I just had to add her to my blogs to follow list.

She had this very cute card made with Stampin' Up!s scallop punch and a few bits and pieces so I decided to CASE it. Sandy originally CASEd it from the kaisercraft website so dare I say I shall be making a trip to that website in the very near future.

So here are the materials used and instructions can be found here at Sandy's blog.

Materials (all Stampin' Up);

Scallop Punch
A5 card of Whisper White
3 x Really Rust Scallop punched circles
3 x Fall Flowers Scallop punched circles
3 x brads
Stampin Around wheel, Daisy Field design and Old Olive ink cartridge
Small scraps of Old Olive Card Stock
Seasons of Joy Stamp set
Old Olive Ribbon
Whisper White Ribbon

I just loved this cute card so much that I have added it to my up coming class for Punch and Stamping basics class on Saturday, 21st Feb at 4pm.

Book in today and you can make it too.

Hoppy for my new Blue Bayou!

Well here is the second card for the night and yes it is part of my new purchases. The stamp set is one of my old favourites, Unfrogettable. I fell in love with this colour combination when I picked up the DS Paper, Spring Break. It can be quite hard to find masculine papers out there but thankfully for Stampin' Up we have quite a few. The colours I have used here are Blue Bayou, Sky Blue and Old Olive and I have also used sponge daubers to soften the edges and give it a distressed appearance. I have also used some brads that I had that were an exact colour match, so yeeha for me!! And just to finish it off I have put some Linen Thread just to give it that rough texture. I think this card could very easily be used for a male birthday. What do you think?

"Thanks SO much" for the FREE Stamp!!

I couldn't help myself. I had to go and get my $100 worth of Stampin' Up goodies so I could qualify for this gorgeous FREE stamp set called Botanical Blooms from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. They arrived just before I had to go and do a workshop last night so I didn't even have time to play with them until now. I stamped the shadow image of the 2 step stamp in Really Rust and Old Olive and then stamped the outline with Close To Cocoa on Sahara Sand Cardstock. Then I used Choc. Chip card stock with Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon on top and finished with a sentiment from the So Many Sayings, Hostess only set. What do you think? I think the colours go really well together and it was such a quick card to make too. Will be back later on with another new design. Happy Crafting.
