Cutie Card for Baxters 1st Birthday

 My littlest grandsons 1st Birthday on Saturday.  The card I made was cased from one I had seen from Convention. Thank you Helen McEwen. Oh so cute.

 Sorry Baxter your Banner Photo did not come out too good but I thought it needed a place in this post.
 Last of all all the little pop cakes I made for the little ones.  All went down a treat.
Happy Birthday to our littlest sweet heart.

Envelope Box made on our Stampin Up Envelope Board.


Just sharing with you Our envelope Board Box Envelope.   It is so fabulous to be able to make a nice sturdy Envelope Box to put my chunky cards into.  This one I have decorated with our Punches and made it as a giving parcel, but if you packed your card carefully you would be able to use this Box Envelope to be able to post it.  I would also be careful how I sealed the envelope if sending it through the mail.
I am just over awed at all the amazing bits and pieces that we can use to make our special gifts even more special.
The flowers are made with Pansy Punch  and Scallop Edged Circle Punches and a little strip of glitter card to add some sparkle to the envelope.
Wishing you all a great weekend to come.  To those who are in winter at the moment cuddle up and those in the summer enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.
Love to all

Stampin Up Flower Shop Trifold Card


Just a beautiful warm glow of Tangello Twist here to tantalize the eyes in our cool winter months.  The Flower Shop Stamp Set looks like it was really made for this.  The lovely bright colours of summer making me feel warm again.
Here I used two of our Punch and Stamp Sets to create this trifold card.



These are the flowers on the 1st side made with Petite Petals and Punch.  The leaves are gold embossed from our new Kinda Electic Stamp Set. 

The last outer side is also made with Petite Petals and Punch as well as the gold embossed leaves from Kinda Electic Stamp Set.


Wishing you a beautiful and restful week end

Wreath for the Beauty of Summer with Stampin Up Spiral Rose Die

The beautiful vibrant colours of the Roses and the gorgeous Rose foliage, reminds me of the sensational perfume of the  Rose after a refreshing Summer shower.  In the winter this brings beautiful memories of the summer to come and lovely warm weather to dream about.  The days of warm cardigans and coats need a little inspiration to keep us going.


I had been fiddling with this wreath now for about 3 months just wondering what to adorn it with.  I have made everything from Azaleas to Zinnia's and all flowers in between .  Then it came to me the Stampin Up Die for the Spiral Rose. I had heaps of Roses I had made as I like to make my flowers and store them until I need them.


The gypsophila  I made with our new leaves out of the New Flower Die for the Big Shot by adding little punched out images of a flower scrunched up on the leaves.  Gypsophila is such a beautiful filler.  A couple of the leaves instead of adding the scrunched up tissue flowers.  I added tiny quilled roses made out of .5 cm. 


The Wreath was made from the Wreath kit in last mini catalogue but the Burlap ribbon is still available in our new Catalogue and all you need do is to make your Wreath Shape with Heavy Card stock and roll the Ribbon around the wreath.  I used partial dies to make Rose buds and then coloured edge of the leaves of the Roses with water colour.  I really needed to shade my Roses but that will come in my next wreath.  The Roses and leaves I attached to my Burlap Ribbon Wreath with the glue gun.  I always like to lay my wreath out before attaching so any changes I can make before the arrangement is complete.

Go ahead and make your beautiful Wreath and enjoy the beauty of the lost season in the winter.

love and 
Happy Crafting
Carolyn

Love you to leave comment and tell me what you think about my beautiful Wreath

Everything Eleanor with a Blackberry Twist

Everything Eleanor a beautiful name with a gorgeous colour and Pink Pirouette compliments this colour.  I think it makes the card look luscious, Rich and Elegant.


 I made this card especially  for the Just had Ink Challenge I hope that I am not too Late?


I Stamped the Vellum with Black Tuxedo Ink and Coloured my Florets with Rich Razzleberry  Blendabilities.  I really love our new Alcohol Markers. They blend together so beautifully. 


Each set comes as a set of 3 in the light, medium and dark shades of the colour.  They are so rich and beautiful and blend so easily it makes colouring very pleasurable.

This card I used the Stamp Sets: Everything Eleanor
                                                  Kinda Electic
Blendabilities                              Rich Razzleberry, Daffodill Delight
Alcohol Ink Pad                         Tuxedo Black
Card Stock                                Pink Pirouette, and Blackberry Bliss
                                                  Also Vellum and Rhinestone Basic Jewels
Big Shot and Folder                   Decorative Dots.
