Time to PARTY!

Hello all!

Hope you all had a good day today. Due to Hurricane Barney, it is currently very very windy here in the UK. I am just so glad that I am home already and not out there!!

Life has been so busy recently. I am regularly making cards but just find it hard to find time to blog them. It will be my youngest daughter's birthday in December. She is going to be 10 years old - going into two digits!!! OMG! Where has the time gone?! So, I am here to share the birthday invitations which I made over the weekend.
My daughter chose this Dancing Mae stamp by Some Odd Girls as the main image. Who wouldn't want to dance when there is a party!! ^_^ Actually when my daughter gave the invitations out today, one of the parents said Dancing Mae looks a bit like her! Hee hee! I guess she made a good choice of the stamp!!

The sentiment is from the Mixed Circular Sentiments by Lili of the Valley. Just love this stamp set as there are so many different messages that can be added in the centre of each circular sentiment. A very versatile set!

Here is a close up photo of the card.
As you can see I added a lot of Stickles glitter glue and Wink of Stella glitter brush to the image. Shiny image makes me happy!!
Well, I didn't make all the invitation cards towards the end. (My daughters wouldn't let me!! Ha ha!!) They love to join in and be part of it. So they coloured a majority of the images themselves (top row are coloured by my eldest daughter, the middle row are coloured by the birthday girl to be and the bottom row are coloured by me) and I stamped, cut, stuck and put the invitation cards together. Each one of them is different! I have to say they did a really good job and it was great fun crafting with them!  
I am entering the card I made to the following challenges:
Hope you like these invitations and I will try to be back again very soon. Maybe share a Christmas card next? Enjoy the rest of your week.

Sending You Monster Thanks

Hello there!

Is it a Happy Monday or a Blue Monday for you today? Mine is an ok-ish Monday. Hopefully it will get better as the days go by.

Anyway, I am here today to share a card for Make the Day Special Stamp Store September Colour Challenge. You need to pick a minimum of 3 colours from any one of the 3 images below.
I couldn't make my mind up which 3 colours to pick so I decided to use all colours from the left image. So here is my card:
I used the Monster Mash stamp set and Cole's ABC's Dies, both from Lawn Fawn, for my card. I also used Cuttlebug- Swiss Dots embossing folder to add some texture for the background. Here are a couple more closer shots.
I don't know if you can see the sparkle? I literally used the clear Wink of Stella brush pen on nearly everything!! ^_^
This card is cheerful and full of colour. I am sure it will make the recipient smile! ^_^

I hope you like the card and thanks for reading.

Another Thank You Card

Good evening everyone!

Hope you had a pretty good day today. I am here for a quick post. Just want to share another 4" x 4" thank you card with you.
I used my new Clearly Besotted stamp set- Honeycomb for this card. I really like this stamp set. It has 9 different patterned hexagons, which you can use on their own or stamped inside the honeycomb outline, as I did here. With these stamps, it is also very easy to create the honeycomb shape you like. I think Clearly Besotted is discontinuing this stamp set, so it is currently on sale with 50% off, while stock last. If you like this stamp set, you better take the advantage of the offer and be quick!

I am also braving with my colour combinations. Never used green, pink and orange together. I am not quite sure about them but I think they are ok together right?! The sentiment is from Mama Elephant - Tiny Heroes. I stamped on black card and heat embossed it with Hero Art White Embossing Powder.

At the top of the card, I used washi tape which I got from Taiwan this summer. Then, I added a pink and white bakers twine and a mint small button. I think they work well with my colour theme.

  • NBUS Challenges #5 - Clearly Besotted- Honeycomb stamp set is my never-before-used-schtuff.
I hope you like the card and thanks for stopping by.
