Mothers Day Card and Gift

Hi there

The theme for this month's card class was Mother's Day which is celebrated on Sunday 8th May in New Zealand.  My card is CASED from the 2015-2016 Annual Catalogue.  I've kept the layout but changed the colours and the sentiment.  The annual catalogue is a great source of inspiration.  Check out the original design on page 67.

I've kept the colour theme for the gift - a note pad and mini gel pen.  You can never have enough note pads!
I really like the design of this card and with a few changes of sentiment you could use this for any type of card.

The ladies had fun creating their own design for the front of the note pad using various flowers and leaves from the Botanical Builders Framelits - it really is a versatile framelit set.

Stamp Set - Wondrous Wreath, Crazy About You, Pictogram Punches
Card Stock - Mint Macaron, Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride, Mossy Meadow, Whisper White
Ink - Mint Macaron, Cucumber Crush, Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride
Paper - Birthday Bouquet DSP
Other - Silver Fancy Foil Vellum, Banner Framelits, Botanical Builder Framelits, Wonderful Wreath Framelits, Triple Banner Punch, Rhinestones, Silver Metallic Bakers Twine, Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack, It's My Party Enamel Dots, Dimensionals

Going Global this time

Hi there

Back again with some more masculine creations using the Going Global products from the Occasions Catalogue.

This is another Buckle Card and is a mixture of DSP and stamps for the design.  The front left panel is created by stamping the 'constellation' stamp multiple times on a piece of Very Vanilla.  I adhered it to the mat before punching out the opening to form the 'buckle'.  The right hand side panel is a piece of DSP.

This is all DSP punched out with the Hexagon Punch.  Not sure why I haven't used this sentiment stamp before - it's great for a fun masculine card.
 For this card I've just used a sheet of DSP, added some ribbon and the sentiment.

Stamps - Perfect Pairings, Oh My Goodies
Card Stock - Mossy Meadow, Sahara Sand, Delightful Dijon, Basic Black, Very Vanilla
Ink - Mossy Meadow, Momento Black
DSP - Going Places
Other - Hexagon Punch, Word Window Punch, Deco Labels Framelits, Mossy Meadow Satin Ribbon (retired), Dimensionals

Build A Birthday - Cake

Hi there

It's been a while since I used this stamp set - Build A Birthday - so out it came to see some ink.

 This set is a photopolymer one which makes it easier to line the various cake layers up.
The cake layers can also double as candles :).  It's a bit hard to see but I used the Clear Wink of Stella on the candle flame and the banner on the front of the card.

Stamp Set - Build a Birthday, Pictogram Punches
Card Stock - Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Ink - Rich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride, Smoky Slate, Pumpkin Pie
Other - Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Rhinestones, Wink of Stella Clear
