A little bit of Cowboy in all of us

SONY DSCA fun card that we made in class last year, I discovered lots of cards that I hadn’t posted when Pat and I sat down on Sunday to make some cards for a special little person who is in need of some cards to sell.

We reminisced about whether a card was cute, if we enjoyed making it and the colours among other things.  We thought if the colours were changed this could very easily become a girl card.  This time of card can be either a child or an adult, either male or female species.

Do you want to know how we made it?  Yeap of course you do.  Firstly stamp the palings on a sheet of cardstock, then using your oval accent Bigz Clear Die, cut out the shape, this will become your door, so you need have the door to open, just cut it in the middle and some of the bottom of it.  Now it looks like a saloon door don’t you think?  You will need to stamp and cut out some pieces to make the door frame.  I used some of my off cuts from other projects.

Next you just need to stamp out some stars and cut them out using the Star Framelits and perhaps a little sentiment too.  I do hope you like this card and below are the three main items I used.


Harvest Blessings

Harvest Blessings

Keeping the theme of male cards, thought you might like this one. Again used some designer paper, its great for whipping up a quick card, this time I used the chevron embossing folder to add a little dimension to it. Colours used where Early Espresso and Very Vanilla cardstock and Early Espresso ink.

The stamp set is called Harvest Blessings #126452 in the new catalogue, great set.

Do hope you like it. Please note if you like any of my cards, I am happy to sell them, just message me for a price as they all differ depending on the detail on them.
Until next post, be happy and keep stampin.

Kitchen Alfoil Mosaic Madness

Kitchen Alfoil Mosaic Madness

Enjoy Card making and learning new techniques, then this is a card for you.

I used ordinary Aluminium Foil to create this fabulous card, not forgetting the coming weekend is Fathers day.

Wondering what stamp set it is? Its the Mosaic Madness bundle that includes both the Stamp set and Co ordinating Punch, item no 132733 for the clearmount at 56.95 on page 123 of the 2013-2014 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue. I also used the new Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder, no 129984 that is 13.95 on page 191.

Colors used were, Bazj Breeze, Wild Wasabi and Not Quite Navy. The go together with the silver so well don’t you think.

I will be teaching this on Friday morning the 30 August at 10.00 in Minchinbury. Please contact me if you would like to attend. Shortly I will show the other card that we will be making on the day, they can easily be used for Fathers Day or a nice Male Card for that special person.
