My new favourite – Number of Years…

Hello

Hope you have a great week and if you’re an Aussie had a great Australia Day.

Today I am sharing my newest favourite stamp set.  I will try to make a card soon using another stamp set.

Anyway my card today I am linking to two challenges

Firstly The Colour Tree Challenge here

and

Seize the Birthday here – sorry no toppings for me this time

This card is for the girl’s ex-dancing teacher.  For many of you you would know my children dance.  All three girls have been doing Jazz and tap for a number of years.  For a couple of years Ms S and Mr M also did hip hop.  The teacher sold her school to another teacher a couple of years ago, but still keeps in touch.  Ms E and Ms S have been asked to perform a dance along with the rest of their group at the teacher’s 60th Birthday party next week.  So of course the girls asked me to make a card.

I have used SU Number of Years stamp set with gold embossing powder die cut with the co-ordinating die and popped up with fun foam. I stamped other images from the set with black ink, SU Soft Suede ink and mint macaron marker direct to the stamp.   This was placed on the rest of the card front with foam tape. The card base is white with a very vanilla mount and a smaller gold stripe mount from Winter Wonderland paper pack.  I added a piece of mint macaron lace (NBUS) before attaching the mounts to the card base.  I had to add some gold sequins from my stash for two reasons 1. I felt the card needed a little more bling! and 2. In recognition of all the sequin fabric we have had over the years!

Before I leave I hope to have a little more creative time soon. My second part time job has had a change of management and as a result my role will no longer be required as  it is their policy to outsource this role to the local council.  I am not sad as I am hoping I will gain a few more hours to play in my craft room soon 🙂  In the first challenge I entered for the colour tree challenge Bronwyn included a pdf file for a spring planter box card, hopefully with the extra hours I gain soon I will be able to give it a go.

Until next time

Cheers

Vicki

  1. That stamp set is a favourite of mine too Vicki! Love your card here – the sunshine pic is just beautiful! I’m looking forward to seeing more of your creations with your extra crafting time!

  2. Lovely card, just the right amount of bling! I guess I probably won’t bump into you at a work visit now… Will definitely have to meet at a craft market or similar, Sussex St NH are having another Artisan market 1st week of May and Robinson Reserve NH are planning a small market on 18 March. Interested?

  3. You certainly do love this stamp set and have made another gorgeous card using the challenge colours. Love the added bling and ribbon. Thanks for playing along at TCTC this week.
