Submarine Birthday

Saturday, November 28, 2015

Although this is predominantly a blue card, I think that it can be for both girls as well as boys.  And why not for some adults as well?  Who doesn't wish they could be in a cute little submarine under water?


Fiona's notes:
  • I first stamped the submarine onto Whisper White, then onto Pacific Point.  I fussy cut the body of the submarine and the tip of the telescope.
  • The port holes on the submarine are in Pool Party cut with the Owl Builder Punch - perfect size!
  • The rest of the submarine is coloured in Smoky Slate using my blender pen, and the fish with a Stampin Write Marker for extra colour.
Stamps: You're Sublime, Something to Say  Inks: Memento Black, Smoky Slate  Papers: Pacific Point, Whisper White, Pool Party, School House DSP  Accessories: Blender Pens, Circles Framelits, Owl Builder Punch, Bermuda Bay Twine, White Accents.

Do you always have a wish list of Stampin' Up! products you'd like to buy but are saving your pennies for Christmas?  Why not ask your family and friends to give you a voucher! Or why not get a few yourself to give as presents.

Of course, vouchers can be given at any time and so I have gift wallets to suit every occasion (see order form for options).

And don't forget, with every purchase I send my customers a hand made thank you card and a gift.  Check back later in the week to see my blog post showing what November's gift was.

Big Brother

Monday, November 09, 2015

 Isn't it fun to be able to give the older sibling of a newborn a card to congratulate his or her new status in life?  Here's one I made for a little boy who recently became a big brother for the first time.

Fiona's Notes
  • Goodness only knows why the card looks black in the photo - it's Night of Navy, I swear!!
  • These cute fish are made with circle punches and the owl punch as well as the itty bitty heart punch.  Super cute or what?
  • The sentiment is printed not stamped.  Why not make one as a birthday card?

Papers: Night of Navy, Whisper White, Colour Me Autumn DSP Accessories Owl punch, Itty Bitty Accessories punches, Circle Punches

Thanks so much for stopping by today,


Sieze the Cake

How much fun is this?  A card on a card!  It provides a front sentiment, as well as an inside one, but gives you all that room within the card itself for writing.  I just love it.

Fiona's notes:
  • Stampin' Up! doesn't have a twine to match Very Vanilla, so I removed the gold from the Metallic Gold Twine and now it matches perfectly.
  • The dotted border is just me and my trusty ruler making dots with a marker.

Stamps: Something To Say, From the Garden  Inks: Blackberry Bliss  Papers: Very Vanilla, Blackberry Bliss, Farmers Market DSP  Accessories: Metallic Gold Twine, Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, Blackberry Bliss marker
