Pop of Pink Birthday

A final Thoughtful Branches offering for the week:

I've tried something different using the Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper as a background.

The colours are Black and Melon Mambo to ring the changes a little.

The banner is from Birthday Banners and the sentiment from Number of Years - cut out with a framelit of course.

Lots of Labels framelits used for the mounting and finished with gems.

CASE-ing projects

This card was a 'must-try' when I saw it the first time and was made by Kylie Bertucci who is a very talented Stampin' Up! demonstrator and a Design Team Member on the Global Design Project.

It also uses the Thoughtful Branches bundle (again).

The link is below to Kylie's blog post on how it was made, I love it!'+Up!+Australia+Independent+Demonstrator)

Last call as well for my next order that is going in on Friday.

A lovely tree!

Another card from our Buds day last week was this from Jane which I also think is super:

It uses the set Lovely as a Tree which is an old Stampin' Up! favourite.

One of the stamps has been used in 3 different colours to create what looks like backing paper - so effective.

Stampin' Write Markers were used to colour the tree.

More Thoughtful Branches

I got a super 3D gift swap last week for my little chocolate box and I've used the same colours that Alison used for the picture frame I received for this birthday card:

Using the Thoughtful Branches again this card uses the colours Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Sweet Sugarplum, Old Olive & Soft Sky.

I am still loving this set and it is still currently only available until the end of August.

I have an order going in this week if you can't live without it!

Cookies coming soon ...

With the next Seasonal Catalogue racing towards us I have another sneak peek for you - how fantastic are these?:

These are just some of the stamps from Cookie Cutter Christmas coming your way soon and - you've guessed it - there is a co-ordinating punch!

If you would like to make a card with this set book a party between September and the end of December and you can try before you buy.

A Little Kindness

One of the cards we made at our Bloomin' Buds day was this one from Cathy:

It uses DSP from the Blooms and Bliss set - a different sheet to the one I used to decorate the gift box in my last post.

The sentiment is from Kinda Eclectic and the lovely Mint Macaron butterfly is from the Butterflies Thinlits.

3D Gift Box

We had a super Bloomin' Buds day today - 8 of us all took a card for the other team members to make (more on that to come) and a 3D gift to swap.

This is the swap I made after following instructions on Pinterest from 'From my Craft Room' here.

I used Sweet Sugarplum card for the base and some paper from the Blooms and Bliss DSP pack which picks this colour up.

I've also used some Rich Razzleberry layers and a touch of Old Olive for the leaves.

I've decorate the outside using the stamp set Flower Patch and its matching framelits.

As you can see each drawer fits 4 Ferrero Rocher!
