Hearts a flutter and Chevron embossing folder

IMG_2864 (Medium)Still with the whole Yellow and grey theme – this time I used the hearts in the Hearts a flutter stamp set and die set from Stampin Up and also the Chevron embossing folder from stampin up. The cardstock is Kiasercraft – Kaisercard, and the patterned paper and the tag are from My Minds Eye.Back to work for me today, so a lazy night in front of the tv is on the cards tonight! Til tomorrow….

My yellow and Grey experiment!

IMG_2863 (Medium)The other day I wanted to try a colour combo – Yellow and grey, so over the next couple of days I will show you what I came up with – although I don’t think I have entirely worked this combo out of my system, so later there may be more! I have used a mix of products here – The plain cardstock is Kaisercard – I had trouble finding a pale enough yellow in any other brand. The striped pattern paper is from My MInds Eye – Follow your Heart. The embossing folder is stampin up – Chevron, and the sentiment stamp is also stampin up from Itty bitty banners set. The bunting is stampin up Hearts a Flutter stamps and dies, and I used stampin up sahara sand ink and Ranger squeezed lemonade distress ink.I have saved the best til last – I found a new brand of die cuts for the letters – Die – Versions and the name of the die is Editor in Chief font. These are the best letter dies I have ever tried – the letters fall out of the dies, so excited that I went back ad bought the smaller letter set as well as the larger ones – I am all set now! This afternoon I have made a start on my xmas cards – early I know, but I plan to do a few a week, that way I am not stuck doing them for weeks on end the last couple of months of the year! Til tomorrow….

My Minds eye my Girl number 3

IMG_8694 (Medium)Number 3 in my My Minds Eye My Girl series – I made good use of the designs on the patterned papers for this one, and die cut ( using stampin up hearts a Flutter dies) a couple of banners, and fussy cut a flower and butterfly as well. The sentiment stamp is from hero arts, and I used stampin up Melon Mambo cardstock and ink.I taught a class today, and while in the shop grabbed some more of this paper, as I think we will be doing cards very similar to these in one of my may classes – I just love the bold bright statement! Til tomorrow….

One for the boys….

IMG_8682 (Medium)I spent a day last week going through my paper collection, and  as I was tidying, I kept stopping to make cards with the papers i was unearthing, so over the next few days I will show you these – some of the papers may not be available now, but you would be able to get the same result with current papers, the sketch ideas work with most papers. This one was Echo Park For the record  paper collection, and I used Stampin Up Hearts a Flurtter dies to die cut the banner  across the top. The little letters are kaisercraft mini stickers, and the paper already had “boy” splet out – Handy1 Til tomorrow….
