Again I was playing with my two favourite products from the Occasions Catalogue. The Birthday Cheer Stamp set and the How Sweet it is Designer Series Paper (DSP)
This time I was using the DSP as the background and doing this means I really don’t need to do too much to the card. I cut off a strip of DSP and flipped it over to give some contrast. I then just stamped the image onto the punched out circle and layered it all up and its then done.
This is another card that my campers will be making at my Papercrafters Retreat. The registration has closed but you could order the “Retreat in a Box”. In the box you will receive all the make and takes, pillow gifts, a goodie bag, and two stamp sets and a voucher to spend with me all shipped to your door. The cost is $195. You can contact me to order yours today. I will be closing the order period off on 20th April and will be posting them out during the week of the 8th May. There is a very limited number of these available to order to don’t miss out and order yours today.
My brother turned 50 this month and we had a family dinner celebrating. With a big Birthday like this I wanted to make a special birthday card for him. So I pulled out some of the new products that are being released in the new Occasions Catalogue and made this card.
I used Basic Gray as my card base and then layered Basic Black on top and some new Designer Series Paper on top. This paper is the new Classic Garage paper stack. I used the retired Large Numbers Framelits and embossed them to add some extra detail. I used the foil sheets for the numbers as well and with the heat from the heat tool it melted some of the foil and that’s how you get the look of the white and smoky slate.
The cogs were all cut out using the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies and I have used the Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets from the Sale-a-bration catalogue. You can earn this foil for FREE with an order of $90 from January 3rd, 2019.
I stamped on the envelope to match it in with the card and I added an insert in the card to write on and stamped some images on the insert as well. I really love how the card turned out and my brother liked the card too. His wife makes cards and so he understands that a bit of time would have gone into making this card for him.

Here is the second baby card that I was asked to create for a customers upcoming card class and I wanted something very simple. This time I used Pool Party and Very Vanilla card stock.
I created a mask and used sponge brayers to create the Pool Party rectangle. I then used the Animal Outing stamp set in Sahara Sand ink.
I also used the layering circle dies for the sentiment. The sentiment is also from Animal Outing.
