Birthday Card

 I thought I would just show you a birthday card that I made for one of my students this week. It's her birthday on Monday, but I gave her the card on Saturday, so don't worry I'm not spoiling the surprise. Unfortunately the photos I took weren't the best, so they don't do it real justice. It turned out to be such a pretty card though and so easy to make too. 

I embossed some smooth white cardstock with the Sizzix Thank You Set #5 embossing folder, and layered it onto a soft pink Bazzill cardstock. This was then layered onto a smooth white cardstock base. The stamp is from JustRite Stampers Large Fancy Sentiments. I just looove this stamp set! 

The flowers were made using Spellbinders Blossom One and Bitty Blossoms. I used a technique that I picked up from Selma Stevenson's blog here. I just loooove these flowers and I've made them a few times now. I used white linen paper to make these. They are inked with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, spritzed and folded and then rolled. I've used Creatables die LR0157 for flourishes and punched some leaves. I then added pearls to the lattice.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
Have a great day!

August Challenge

Thank you to everyone who entered the August Challenge. The theme was "Beautiful Borders" and I think it was quite a challenge as we didn't get as many entries as usual. We did get some gorgeous cards though and the winner this time was Glenda with her stunning ivory and gold card using the Quickutz Die - Petite Petals. Congratulations Glenda, you now have a $20 voucher to spend in store. Here is Glenda's winning card The encouragement award this month goes to Jean Riches for her lovely use of the Marianne Die to create a fan. What a great idea! The die itself is gorgeous but teamed up with this beautiful Martha Stewart punched border and hand made flowers, it's beautiful. Well done Jean. This card was also made by Glenda and it takes the theme of borders out of the box, by using flowers as the border. Clever idea!
Rhonda's card using one of my favourite dies in turquoise and white, again with some lovely punched borders.
Dorothy's card is simply elega…
