we all help each other

This is a thank you card for another gorgeous friend: we often use her grandmothers quote "we all help each other" because its so true!

I've used some beads in the centre of the flower.
Used tangerine tango & summer sun inks for the flower petals (a little treat stamp set)
Inked in the lighter colour first then rolled the edges in the darker colour.

Thank you

I've had 3 beautiful girlfriends help me out this school holidays minding my little miss a day each. So I made them each a "Thanks" card. (with a little bit of assistance from Miss 4yo herself)
She likes to 'help' pick the colours, hand me bits & pieces, use the stampin' scrub to clean the stamps, tell me what message I should write inside etc! she's so cute

Here's the first card using Pocket Silhouettes stamp set.
Melon Mambo, Almost Amethyst, Gray

I'll be back with the other 2 cards soon.

Pony Party

This card came together really quickly...
I started by running whisper white card through the Big Shot with the 'top note' die.
I stamped the pony in black staz-on & coloured in the hair with melon mambo on a blender pen, and my pretty in pink & green galore markers. The added a bit of dazzlin' diamonds glitter (essential for a girls card, isn't it?).
The melon mambo card base has melon mambo hearts stamped randomly around.
I've used the horizontal slot punch twice to thread the ribbon through. (I'm going to have to be careful, I'll end up with this polka-dot ribbon on everything I make! I love it!)
A bold brights brad secures the 'magical birthday wishes' which I curled slightly with my bone folder.

Manhattan Flower

This is one of the cards Jayne Mercer designed for her team training session.
It was a great afternoon playing & learning about the great new products in the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue.

We all got to make this elegant card which uses the Stampin' Up! textured impressions embossing folder through the Big Shot, on white gloss card stock. It's teamed with the new in-colour 'soft suede'. The words 'love' are from the 'tiny tags' stamp set.

A little treat card

Here's my 'a little treat' card, filled with pink & white mini jellybeans.

I love this 'Melon Mambo' in colour.
Here's its used with almost amethyst, and perfect plum.
When the jellybeans have gone, you see the number inside.
I've used the big shot with the textured impressions 'perfect polka-dots' and also for the number '2' from the 'timeless type junior alphabet'

Here's the inside, I used the photo corners punch to make the latch.

Happy Easter

Here's a few Easter treats I made with the big shot 'top note' die and the medium cellophane bags (pg 130). They were so quick & easy to make

For my cute bunnies...

Happy Easter.
These are what my girls will find when they wake up in the morning!

I have completely CASE'd this bunny from Julie Simi Stamper : I think she has the best punch bunny I've seen, so I had to make a couple to stick on the front of the Fancy Favor boxes.
(they are Melon Mambo with the polka dot background stamped in the same colour)

I've used pink pirouette & whisper white and used the sponge dauber on all the pieces.
Her little paws are on diamentionals, her teeth are curled up a bit, all the other parts are stuck flat.

Fantastic new items from Stampin' Up!
