 Dear Friend You're The Best! 


Handwritten and P.S. You’re The Best Stamps



You're The Best card, Handwritten stamp, P S You're The Best stamps, Copper Heat Embossing.Typewriter card.






I just love this stamp set, the typewriter image caught my eye. It resonates of times gone by when so much effort went into the writing of a letter to a friend. It really was something special to receive a letter in the post in the days before the internet and social media.



You're The Best card, Handwritten stamp, P S You're The Best stamps, Copper Heat Embossing.Typewriter card.



This was one of the cards we made at my monthly class in July. We used Copper Embossing Powder to emboss the background Handwritten stamp. It gives it such a lovely tone and goes well with the Granny Apple Green card we used.



You're The Best card, Handwritten stamp, P S You're The Best stamps, Copper Heat Embossing.Typewriter card.



The base card is in Whisper White to make the Granny Apple Green stand out. I added some of the gorgeous new Granny Apple Green ribbon along the front secured with snail adhesive.  The dear friend and you're the best are stamped in Granny Apple Green and I have added a stamped heart also heat embossed in copper.


I had this card in my mind for a while and I love how it turned out. I hope you do too.

A Birthday Note - Celebrate!

A Birthday Note! - Celebrate!


A Birthday Note - Lovely Floral Embossing Folder with P. S You're The Best



Birthday card with P.S. You're the best and Lovely Floral Embossing Folder



When I decided on this card I want it very soft and summery. Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate compliment each other perfectly don't you think.



Birthday card with P.S. You're the best and Lovely Floral Embossing Folder



I designed it for my July card class which focused on the P.S You're The Best stamp set. So I have one I designed and the other I demonstrated at class.  So they are now both winging their way to two of my lovely friends who share August as their Birthday month with me.

Can you see the Whisper White card layer? I have embossed it with the Lovely Floral Embossing Folder. it's so pretty.


Birthday card with P.S. You're the best and Lovely Floral Embossing Folder



I stamped the typewriter image in Smoky Slate and fussy cut it out - it's ok though, it's an easy shape. I layered one of the pearlised doilies behind it and raised it up on foam Dimensionals. I have added a few of the Artisan Pearls on the front.



Birthday card with P.S. You're the best and Lovely Floral Embossing Folder



I stamped the celebrate (from Banners For You set) on a scrap of Whisper White and punched it out using the Classic Label Punch. I punched another label out of a scrap of Smoky Slate and layered them up with a piece of the pretty Daffodil Delight Stitched Ribbon. I tucked it underneath the doily using a little adhesive.


Birthday card with P.S. You're the best and Lovely Floral Embossing Folder



The sentiment is stamped inside on Whisper White card in Daffodil Delight. I have used the Picture Perfect stamp set. I love the sentiments in this set and the curly font. You see me using it ALOT!

Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #025 - Balloon Celebrations!

Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #025  Balloon Celebrations!


Balloon Celebrations card, Balloon Punch, Colour Challenge, Stampin Up,


This time for the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge we have a colour challenge! Lovely bright ones too.  Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Lemon Lime Twist.




These colours shouted celebrations to me so I reached for the Balloon Celebration stamp set and the matching Balloon Bouquet Punch.



Balloon Celebrations card, Balloon Punch, Colour Challenge, Stampin Up,



The card base is in Whisper White with a Lemon Lime Twist layer. The top layer is Whisper White which I have run through the Sequin Embossing Folder in the Big Shot.



Balloon Celebrations card, Balloon Punch, Colour Challenge, Stampin Up,

I have punched out the balloons, two of each colour and stamped the balloon shading in the same colour ink to give a tone on tone effect. some of them are glued flat and some have foam Dimensionals behind then to give height.

Balloon Celebrations card, Balloon Punch, Colour Challenge, Stampin Up,

"
I cut the "Celebrate" out, in Bermuda Bay using the Celebrate You Thinlit Dies and anchored the balloons from the top usng Gold Metallic Thread for the strings. I added a few rhinestones too for a little added sparkle.


Balloon Celebrations card, Balloon Punch, Colour Challenge, Stampin Up,

I have stamped the inside of the card too using the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set  in Bermuda Bay ink - I just love the font in this set. 


This could be a congratulations card or a birthday. The Balloon Celebration stamps and Balloon Duet Punch are SO versatile and a great one to have in your stash for all occasions. There are two other stamp sets that goes with the punch too, giving even more bang for your buck. They are Happy Birthday Gorgeous and Birthday Banners.

 Teacher Thank You! - Handwritten Stamp

Just Stamps, ink and paper. 




Teacher Thank You Card, Handwritten stamp, Crafting Forever Pens stamp



I love the new Handwritten background stamp with it's curly font. It goes so well with the Pens stamp from the Crafting Forever stamp set. I used it to make a Thank You card for my son's teacher. Fitting don't you think



Teacher Thank You Card, Handwritten stamp, Crafting Forever Pens stamp

I stamped the background stamp in Smoky Slate onto Whisper White card and layered it onto an Old Olive card base.


Teacher Thank You Card, Handwritten stamp, Crafting Forever Pens stamp

The pens were stamped in Black Memento on Whisper White on top of an Old Olive Layer and raised up with Dimensional Foam Pads.

The Thank You is from Banners For Everyone and stamped in Old Olive and punched out using the Classic Label Punch. I punched another label out of Old Olive, cut it in half and popped the two halves behind the sentiment to make it pop.


Teacher Thank You Card, Handwritten stamp, Crafting Forever Pens stamp

Such a simple card to make but looks very effective. Perfect for a thank you for any teacher.  I hope you like it. Both these stamp sets are so versatile, I have been playing with them lots lately. It's amazing what you can do with just stamps ink and paper.
