I wanted to try an easy scrapbook page and this is what I came up with. I love the black,white, crumbcake and pear pizzazz colour theme. Because it was a "boys" page I didn't want to have it too "tizzy" or flowery though I did manage to sneak one flower in hehe! using some newsprint dsp and a stamp from the Baroque Motifs Stamp Set. Actually Baroque Motifs is the main stamp set I used on this page.I am sad to see it retiring it is such a versatile stamp set. Particularly that marvellous swirl.

A few punches; the bird builder punch, a little flower from the trio punch and the scallop border punch. See the black topnote peaking out of the side? That is for hidden journalling and just pulls out to reveal a place where you can write or add another photo.
I used the scalloped circle punch for the flower and a glimmer brad. Love those glimmer brads!

I like the page so much I just had to design a card with it as well! How is that!
(Featuring: Beautiful You and Birthday Blast Stamp sets. Star Blast Edgelit dies. Pop Up Card.)
Keeping with the Beautiful You Stamping theme from last week I wanted to share with you my Art Deco theme card.
This idea came from Jane Allmark of AmethyStar Crafting. She posted a great card where she extended the dress and added a few lines to this lady to create a completely different style of outfit. I thought it was very cool and just had to give it a try myself.
I have coloured her with our new SU watercolour pencils and added (non SU) blue glitter glue for sparkle.
Using a black Project Life Journalling pen 01 - I added a sweeping line to the bottom of her dress to lengthen it. I added lines from her shoulder to meet her dress line to create a dress with straps.
I also added a stamp from Botanical Blooms to the hat to give it more glamour.
Art Deco is all about angles and lines so I went a bit crazy with our new Stitched Frame Thinlits. I have even cut one in half to add to two of…
Look what I made for my special friend's Special Birthday!!!
Ok...so I was impressed anyway! haha.
(I think she liked it too).
Using Elegant Eggplant and Melon Mambo Cardstock; Gold Foil Card and Gold Glimmer Cardstock. Detailed Floral Thinlits and Large Numbers.
The Greeting is non-SU but the vine is from the Foxy Friends Stamp Set.
You open the card and see ....
the pop up panel in the centre!
I used Pop of Pink Designer paper and some Botanical Builder framelits for the flowers.
And don't you love the gold doily. These gold and silver doily's are awesome.Metallic Foil Doily's p.175 of the main catalogue
So I watched a Youtube video or two on this pop up panel card and then played with the measurements to suit myself.
Here is one of the ones I watched by Sandra Ronald
You all have a great day...and thanks for stopping by. Vx
One of my favourite new in colours has to be Sweet Sugarplum!!
I don't usually go for purples but this colour has got me excited! I just love it so much.
So when it came to creating a card for my workshop I just had to use my favourite new colour didn't I?!
Here is the workshop card we did.
Using Flourishing Phrases flower for the centre and stamping it off for the two side flowers. Mint Macaroon leaves also with some stamped off to create the lighter version.
Some ruched Sweet Sugarplum ribbon and Blooms and Bliss designer paper. Thoughtful Banners and matching punch for the greeting. Wink of Stella added some pretty glitter to the card.
I also did a "stepped up" version of the card.
I added a sparkly butterfly using Blushing Bride Glimmer card and a small butterfly stamped on top in Sweet Sugarplum cardstock. Punched out with the Butterfly punches.
A small gold doily and some new gold enamel shapes! Aren't these great!!!
