Cupcakes and a Lil Monster strikes a Pose…

Hello

Popping into share a card or two

This first card I am linking up to the current challenge at Scrapbook Boutique.

and

Never Before Used Schtuff with Darnell

I took my inspiration from the chocolate cupcakes and the lovely pastel colours.

Perfect for my brand new NBUS from SBB Mama Elephant Carnival Cupcakes and co ordinating dies. I stamped the cupcake bottoms with SU Baked Brown Sugar ink and  coloured the cupcake icing with stampin up and tim holtz markers. I stamped the cute animals onto xpress blending card stock and coloured with various brands of alcohol markers and then die cut. The card front was mounted onto SU pink Pirouette Cardstock and then the little animals were popped up with foam tape.

This card is off to a party with Ms 15 tonight.

My second card

I am linking up to the current challenge at Uniko – anything goes

IMG_6790 (640x594)

I recently purchased several new watercolour pencils and paints – a little indulgence from a recent shopping trip to Geelong art supply shops and online. This little guy from Annabelle Stamps is fun to colour and he hasn’t had much love lately. So I paired him up with a NBUS Uniko Strike a Pose stamp set stamped in SU Night of Navy ink onto watercolour paper. I stamped lil monster in stazon brown ink after masking off the sides and coloured with Intense pencils and Royal Langnickel watercolour pencils. I mounted this onto some real red cardstock. He needed a little sentiment so I used some scrap bits of yellow cardstock and stamped with SU Banner Blast in SU Night of Navy ink and punched with the co ordinating punch.

School holidays now and I have lots planned to do.

Thanks for stopping.

Cheers

More NBUS…

Hello

Today I am sharing 2 birthday cards.

I am linking up to

NBUS #3

My NBUS is Mama Elephant Water blooms stamp set

and

Inspired by Stamping Monthly Challenge

sentiment stamp (and ribbon)

Inspired by Stamping

The recipient of this card, Ms S,  is the daughter of an old friend (we have been friends since we started high school a few years ago!).  Ms S loves Paris and is studying French by attending weekend classes (Dad is a French influence). This has lead to a very French gift with Eiffel tower jewellery holder, stationery and some new jewellery. So the card had to follow the theme.

I began by searching the web for pictures (I don’t have an Eiffel tower stamp although I’m sure they are out there) and printed one I liked from here. I then used my NBUS Mama Elephant Water Bloom stamp set and SU Rose Red ink triple stamped along with SU Certainly Celery. When the stamping was done I trimmed and mounted onto SU Rose Red CS. I added Inspired by Stamping ribbon and the sentiment from Inspired by Stamping Fancy Labels 3 also stamped with SU Rose Red. I punched the sentiment using 2″ and 2 1/4″ circle punches. The finished size of this card is 15cm x 21cm.

The second card I am sharing is for Mr M who is 17 today – Ms S and Mr M share a birthday Mr M is 2 years older.

Mr M is a Whovain so a Dr Who inspired card is a must.

I started by printing 2 of these. I layered these to create my 3D tardis for the front of my card. I was inspired by Tina’s card here. I adhered this to a piece of SU crumb cake cardstock and then I sponged the edges with crumb cake ink. I die cut “17” into the Kaisercraft licorice card front with Papersmooches Numbers die and inlaid the “17” using SU Crumb Cake cardstock. The banners are stamped in crumb cake using SU banner blast and the co ordinating punch. The middle banner is also stamped with a sentiment from PTI Tiny Tags in black ink. The Tardis was then added to the card front with foam tabs.

As Mr M is having friends over for pizza and cake after the movies tonight I have printed these to add to cupcakes. (Still have to make the cupcakes)
