STAMPIN' UP! BIRTHDAY BLAST




I have a habit, when I get a new die, of cutting out lots of die cuts, and hoarding them, unused.  For several months, I've had on my desk, a die-cut piece of Bermuda Bay card, with Crushed Curry die cuts behind it.

Here's what I ended up making, adding some Basic Black to the colour scheme.  The Basic Black panel behind the stars is embossed with the new Oh My Stars embossing folder, that will be available to buy from 1st June.  The gorgeous ribbon is Bermuda Bay Mini Chevron ribbon, also out 1st June.




Listed below are the current Stampin' Up! products used to make this card.  Thanks for visiting my blog today.  I hope you're getting some "crafty" time this week!

STAMPIN' UP! FLOURISHING PHRASES FOR MOTHERS' DAY

I was short of inspiration for Mothers' Day cards this year, until I found these gorgeous cards by Kimberly Van Diepen.

Here's what I made for my mother (in purple) and mother-in-law (in yellow):





On the first card, I used some retired ribbon, from Sale-A-Bration, and on the second card I used Daffodil Delight double-stitched ribbon that will be available from 1st June.

All the current Stampin' Up! products used on these cards are listed below, at the bottom of my post.  If you'd like to purchase them from my online store, just click on one of the thumbnail images.

I have had a beautiful Mothers' Day, with both of my boys.  We went out for lunch together, then visited both of my sons' grandmothers.  A lovely family day.

Here's a photo of me, with my darling sons, taken a few nights ago at my youngest son's Presentation Ball:



Today I received these from son #1:


... and this, from my (ever-so-humble) son #2:



I hope your Mothers' Day has been special, and hope you, too, are feeling loved.

STAMPIN' UP! AFFECTIONATELY YOURS "LOVE" CARD

It is very rare for me to make a card that has NO stamping on it, but that's the case with today's card - and I love it!

The heroes of this card are the copper-embossed Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper, and the elements die-cut from Copper foil card.




I've listed below all the products used to make this card.  If you would like to buy them for yourself, and you live in Australia, just click on one of the thumbnail images to be taken direct to my online store.

I hope I'm inspiring you to use up a bit more of your Designer Series Paper, if you are a hoarder, like I am!  I'm determined to have some fun with lots of lovely products before they retire at the end of the month.
