Sail Away

Again, this card was case'd from another crafter and I apologise for not taking note of who it was. The Yacht image is stamped onto the smallest of 3 squares, all the edges daubed in matching ink and twisted and layered onto the base card. The sentiment is from the Curvy Verses stamp set on a punched decorative label.

Plane simple

Look familiar??   This is the one that I copied for my Make, Do and Send club last month btu in a different colourway.  Not sure which I prefer and I may try it in different colours yet.
I wont bore you with all the details again it's too close to the end of term and we are all tired I'm sure.  Personally I can't wait to break up this year, I seem to have been sooooo busy I really need a break.  Not that I will get one initially :/  I am off to Scout Summer camp for the first week of the hols which is hard work but great fun. Keep your fingers crossed for reasonable weather please I hate camping in monsoons!
I will try and schedule some posts to appear here while I am away, I have some to share from my Christmas in July class and some projects from team training day too.

Plain Sailing

A perfect card for the men in our life, especialy those partial to a bit of messing about on the water!  This is number 4 in the series.  We used Stampin Up's Whisper white craft ink for this one, stamped onto crumb cake card stock. You have to be a little careful with this ink as it takes a little longer to dry but the effect is just lovely.  The image was matted onto the pacific point card and a greeting was added in the form of a strip along the bottom of the card.  This was attached using the jumbo eyelets and the ever funky cropodile, one of my favouritest tools ever!

Sweet Friend

I don't believe it!  What's going on with my photos??  So confusing :(

Card number 3 from the boxed set!  Now this is a very versatile design, we used Stampin up's Every Little bit set any one of which fits perfectly inside the circle and scallopped circle punches.  Therefore it could be made to fit any occasion at all :).  The designer paper background is from Blueberry crisp as before and a few rhinestones added for dimension.

Blue Butterfly

Yay!! The photo is the right way up today :)
Card number 2 from the boxed set.  I like this one, simple but effective.  Just a strip of Blueberry crisp paper, a 3D'd greeting and a punched butterfly to embellish.  The flourishes in the corners have been inked in pacific point to match the base card and don't forget the rhinestone to add some bling :)

Top Birthday

Aaarrggghhh!!! Another upside down photo, sorry.  Todays card is from the boxed set.  A Pacific Point blue base card and Blueberry crisp designer papers. We used the Top note die and Big Shot with the designer paper and embellished it with the leaves (another Big shot die) and a flower made from SU's 5 petal punch; the inner part of the flower is another 5 petal flower but folded in on itself to create a beautiful 3d flower. A pearl in the flower centre just finishes it off. 
Card no2 tomorrow, I'll try to get the photo the right way up!

Gift Cards

Isn't this a brilliant idea?  I love it!  A blank dvd style box decorated beautifully and filled with cards.  This is the last project that I made with Amanda and it's one that I hope to replicate at my own classes in the future.
 Decorating the box is dead easy, just a piece of Blueberry crisp dsp cut to size.  Then we added a label to the bottom at the front using a circle punch and letters.  I called mine "Cards" original huh!  but you could call it anything appropriate.
Inside the box I attached a length of ribbon each side with sticky strip for strength so that the cards can be tied in place. Then all was left to do was make the 5 cards that live inside.
I'll share those over the next few days :)

Organized?? Not Me!!

Grrrrr!! I don't believe it!  Another photo that I don't seem to be able to rotate :(  You will just have to turn your computer monitor upside down I'm afraid until I can fix it.

This is the second of the projects that I made with Amanda the other week. I think it could be the result of her attempts to organise me :S
We began with a piece of 12x12 card and covered it with Blueberry crisp dsp.  A second piece of dsp was added so that it sat halfway up but it was only stuck on 3 sides so that it formed a large pocket.  Then another similar layer takes the bottom third, again only stuck on 3 sides to form a pocket.  The two tiny pockets on the front are made from Stampin Up's scallop envelope Big Shot die.  I also used the Big Shot to cut the letters so I could add my name to the top.  A piece of Ribbon strung through eyelets which were set using a cropodile as a finishing touch and means that it can hang in my hallway in an effort to keep me more organised :)  
More tomorrow
