I’ve been helping Lovely Neighbour Claire with her 40th birthday invitiations. They looked very elegant and classy when they were finished!
The black cardstock, silver paper, velvet ribbon and bling were all non-SU. The stamp used was the ever wonderful Baroque Motifs. Versamark, heat and stick powder then dazzling diamonds! After all, a girl should have a fair bit of bling on her 40th eh??
I’ve got to dash now. Another peadiatric appointment for Miss Lara. Hopefully i’ll be back later to post a cute scrap page I did of Miss Alexandra!
Until next time,
And if you are a poor struggling mother of 3.8 children then the Dazzling Diamond kind that comes in a little jar from Stampin’ Up! is just the thing!! One of my very dear friends is celebrating her 30th birthday tomorrow and I’ll be going to celebrate the day with her. Chocolate & Teal are two of her favourite colours and I thought the big dazzling 30 was just perfect. Unfortunately she too is pregnant so we will be celebrating with some Mocktails and pretending we’re drinking alcohol!! If there is enough sugary soft drink (particularly the red kind) I’m sure I will be positively giddy!! LOL
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Taken With Teal
Stamps: Baroque Motifs
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Taken with Teal
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, Crystal Effects, Choc chip 5/8″ Grosgrain, On Board Letters, Slit Punch and sponge daubers.
I hope she likes it. The diamonds are very dazzly in the light and I did try to capture that by my photography skills are a wee bit lacking!!
Until next time,
It is my dear SIL’s birthday next week and this long weekend we are heading to a big gathering to celebrate with her – she’s turning the big four-Oh!! I wanted to make her something that she could keep and also some nice cards to use as well. I came across these mdf boxes at Riot the other day and it’s the most perfect size for some cards and envelopes. I hope that she likes it.
It’s a little dark where i’ve taken the picture but you get the idea. The box behind is painted in a Kaiser Pink paint and then decorated with Petals & Paisley Double sided paper, and Rich Regal Wide Grosgrain ribbon. I stamped the “cards” on the top with old olive using the Big Deal Alpha. There are 20 cards and matching envelopes in the box. The two Baroque Motif cards are shamelessly CASED, as I was true to form and procrastinated too long to delay any further. I can’t remember the name of the lady who designed the Pomegranate, Old Olive Baroque card in the top left. Kerri Hunter designed the white Baroque cards that are at the front inthe middle. I’ve used River Rock to stamp the Baroque swirl and then Pomegranate to do the spiky little flower and greeting. Pomegranate to stamp the roundy flower at the bottom and I’ve matted it on Pomegranate Textured Cardstock that was punched out using the new Scallop punch. The Blue Bayou Bold Birthday Card is one I just whipped up using my new Bold Birthday Set (thanks Mel!! mwah!). I wanted to add something to the box that was masculine or usable for a child. I think this card accomplishes that. Anyway, i’m off for the weekend now, I hope Mary-anne likes her little gift!
Until next time, Happy Stamping!!
