Swallowtail Butterfly

Whenever Stampin up demonstrators get together we always swap ideas and inspiration and one way of doing this is to make a little something!  This is one of the swaps I received at a training day recently.  It showcases the beautiful Swallowtail butterfly stamp, I have seen so many beautiful cards made using this stamp and it is fast becoming one of my favourites.  The background paper is the First Edition designer paper and is matted onto Mavy and Melon Mambo card stock.  The greeting is punched using the new smaller size decorative label punch, that first appeared during Saleabration but has now carried over, and matted onto a scallop circle of silver glimmer paper. did you know that you can colour the silver glimmer paper using your markers, inkpads or reinkers? So cool!

Another Christmas Gift box

Remember this?  It is a retake on the gift box that I made at team training last month but in a different colour scheme.  I used the traditional red and green of old olive and cherry cobbler together with the Holly Berry designer paper. See, I told you I would be making a lot of these!

Christmas Gift Box

I love this box!  The lovely Amanda Fowler showed us how at our recent team training day at the end of July.
The box itself is made from just one piece of A4 card stock and created easily using the Simply Scored. The lid is made from a scallop square cut using the Big Shot.  
The completed box stands around 6 inches high and will be perfect at Christmas time, I can see that I will be making a lot of these.

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.

How Many Candles?

Today's card is from last months  Make, Do and Send Card club. The "Celebrate" papers are now sadly retired but the stamp set, Party this way, lives on; I'm very glad about that 'cos I love it.
I took the cue for colours from the designer paper and stamped the candles in red, pear pizazz and bashful blue.  The sentiment was punched from card in those colours too.

Happy Balloon day!

An offering from the 2010-11 in-colours today. You gotta love concord crush and it goes so well with pear pizazz.  The in-colour designer paper pattern stack was one of the hostess gifts last year and I used it here to make the balloons.  I used a technique called paper piecing; I stamped the image on the card and then again on the designer paper.  I cut the image out from the paper and "pieced" it onto the card.  The sentiment is from sincere salutations and punched using the decorative label punch.  I daubed around the edge in concord ink to soften the edges

Groovy Thanks!

Bright and cheery isn't it!! The flourish from Baroque motifs is stamped in Pumpin pie ink onto pumpkin card to make a subtle background. I then used the crimper at the top, bottom and across the centre of the card to add interest and then  the sentiment was punched out with the decorative label punch.

A card!!!

I's been a while since I shared a card with you...what can I say.  This is a colour combination that I rarely use but it works very well with the hedgehog image I think.  Sadly the hedgehog is from Fun, fast notes, a stamp set which will be retiring at the end of September but I am sure there will be something lovely to replace it.  The colours I have used will be remaining however. Peach parfait is one of our current in-colours and we will have it for another year and the sumptuous Early espresso is just gorgeous and goes so well with so many of our colours. 
I have another card for you tomorrow but in the meantime just to keep you up to date there are another two items that are now gone forever: the Right on Track standard stampin around wheel and the lovely background stamp Sanded.
