Butterfly Basics Thanks Cards

I have so many projects that haven’t been shared, I just haven’t had the time at the computer to sit and write my posts.  It’s scary to see how much time has passed since my last post…and hope that it won’t be quite so long between this one and my next post!

Anyways, today I am sharing some cute little thank you cards I made a while ago…

Butterfly Basics 001

Super quick and easy, I was having a play with what was then our new In Colours, Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe.  They have been around for quite a while now!

Thanks for stopping by, and bear with me while I get back into the swing of posting!

Sprinkles Of Life Birthday Card

I made this card ages ago now, but it was the first one on my camera when I finally downloaded them to my computer yesterday, so I figured that I would just start at the beginning and get you caught up with what I have been making…

Sprinkles of Life 001 - Front

I wanted this to be cute, but also to fit the bill for a masculine card…I think I did gender neutral more than masculine, but that’s ok!  We need those cards in our stash too!

Sprinkles of Life 001 - Inside

I went super simple on the inside, so there’s plenty of room to write a message around the tree.

Thanks for stopping by…I’m hoping I will be back again tomorrow with something else to share from my camera archives!

Whitewashed Vivid Vases

Finally inked up my Vivid Vases stamp set!  I’ve used the Whitewash technique for this notecard…I just love how amazing everything looks using this technique!

Vivid Vases 001

Such a simple card, but I’m in love with it!  Being a notecard I haven’t added anything to the inside so there’s plenty of room to write my message.  My layers mimic the front of the card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sprinkles Of Life Cupcake Notecard

The Ronald McDonald House Charity stamp set this year is the Sprinkles Of Life stamp set.  This set is super cute, and works for so many different themes, you will want to add it to your craft stash too!

Sprinkles of Life 002

The Tree Builder Punch let’s us punch the cupcake top and the cherry, so this card went together pretty quickly!

No photos of the inside…being smaller than a regular card I added the layers but left it blank so there’s plenty of room to write a birthday message.

Thanks for stopping by.

Whitewashed Corner Garden

It’s been ages since my last post, so I thought I’d better dust off the cobwebs and share something pretty with you 🙂

Today’s card is a case of Heather’s card over at Playing With Papercrafting.  It’s one of those cards that makes you need to buy the stamp set, just so you can make it!  Gorgeous!

Corner Garden 001 - Front

The whitewash seemed to take forever to do, but once I started to colour in the flowers I quickly fell in love!

Corner Garden 001 - Inside

I went super simple for the inside.  I stamped the top of the Corner Garden image in the bottom corner of my card in Versamark….it would have been gorgeous if it had been coloured in too, but I was getting too impatient to finish my card!

I made this card with my class ladies a few weeks ago and they loved it.  It was great to teach them the whitewash technique, and see all the variations of the card.

Thanks for stopping by.

Age Awareness CASE

I finally added the Age Awareness stamp set to my stash, and this card from Born2Stamp sent me straight into my Stamp room to play 🙂

Age Awareness 001 - Front

Here’s the inside:

Love how quickly this card came together!  My class ladies loved making this one too.

Adventure Bound

The Adventure Bound DSP has now retired, but I still wanted to share the card I made.

Adventure Bound 001 - Front

This DSP makes for a super easy but eye catching card!

Adventure Bound 001 - Inside

A little DSP on the inside along with the sentiment always looks great!

Thanks for stopping by.

Moon Lake

Today’s card is another masculine one…my stash of men’s cards is slowly starting to grow!

Moon Lake 001 - Front

It’s been such a long time since I did any watercolouring.  I love it…I could happily sit and colour in all day!

Moon Lake 001 - Inside

Super simple on the inside.

I will be making this card with my class ladies tomorrow night…hope they enjoy the colouring in as much as I did!

Thanks for stopping by.

I made a bunch of these 3×3 cards to pop in with last month’s orders.

I really do love this colour combination!

Stippled Blossoms 004 - Inside

Super simple on the inside or there’s just no room to write anything!

New Catalogue and a Guy Greetings Card

A new Stampin’ Up! catalogue is always very exciting and this year’s catalogue doesn’t disappoint!

2015 Catalogue

Check out the 2015-2016 catalogue online.  Today is also the last day to order from the 2014-2015 catalogue as well as the 2015 Occasions catalogue, so get in quick if there was something you were wanting for your stash 🙂

My stash of men’s birthday cards is always pretty much empty…I really struggle to make masculine cards.  My class ladies have asked for men’s cards, so here’s the first one I made using the Guy Greetings stamp set.

Guy Greetings 001 - Front

Seriously…it’s not that hard to make a man’s card!

I’m all set to fussy cut a bunch of these anchors this morning while I sit at the hair dresser, so my ladies will be pleased that they don’t have to cut them out themselves if they don’t want to!

Guy Greetings 001 - Inside

I kept the inside super simple, with a greeting from the retired Bring On The Cake stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by.
