Creative Frenzy!

Friends 24 - 7 and the Friends jumbo wheel make this beautiful soft card. I've stamped the card base in versamark and clear embossed the background on Pink Pirouette then added a mat of Close to Cocoa, a quick run of the Friends wheel across Natural cardstock and spritzed Pretty in Pink and Close to Cocoa inks to add some texture. Ive used the Eyelet border punch and then some close to cocoa ribbon. Stamped the salutation and added a few pink rhinestone brads.

Party Hearty stamp set is great for male cards, I've used Bashful Blue, Elegant Eggplant and Whisper White here, I inked the party hats individually and stamped them randomly in Bashful Blue on the card base, the tore a strip of Elegant Eggplant and adhered this to the Whisper White, added the glitter strip, which is the Blue Fine Supernova glitter mixed with Dazzling Diamonds for a softer paler blue, stuck straight down on a line of Sticky Strip! Stamped the Celebrate You and punched this out with the scallop punch. one very quick and easy card.

These playing cards make for a great masculine card. I stamped them on whisper white, cut them out and then fanned them into a 'hand' and used a black mat on Red Ridinghood card base. The greeting was stamped and then swiped the edges with Red Ridinghood ink. Add a ribbon and a couple of brads and it's another one finished.

Embrace Life card is 'CASED' from a swap I got at convention, it's just a stunning combination of the new In Colour Kiwi Kiss, Elegant Eggplant and Whisper White. Crimped the stamped image and punch out a border, add a ribbon then a sentiment and you're done.

There are more to come but this should keep you inspired.

Cheers for now,

Well, I've finally finished the house move and got down to some serious crafting. Inspiration from the Stampin' Up! convention had to be put on hold for a week or two while I packed and moved.

This journal is my first attempt at covering a book. I've put the page numbers for where you'll find the items in the Ideas Book and Catalgoue.

I've used the Stampin' Up! journal (pg 147) and Bella Bleu (pg 134) papers along with Pale Plum and Perfect Plum in to stamp 'Create' with the Lovely Letters Alphabet (pg 122) which I embossed with a blend of clear embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds then punched out with the curly label punch (pg 153). I've sponged Perfect Plum ink around the edges of each label to provide some definition.
I've then used the new Sweet Sticky Cuts (pg 145) heart and this is covered with the new Fine supernova glitter (pg 145), I've mixed Pink, Blue and Dazzling Diamonds to come up with this lovely plum colour glitter. Oh I love this glitter!

I kept the middle insert heart covered with it's plastic when I applied the plum glitter then after a few mins drying time, I removed the plastic and used Dazzling Diamonds on the center heart. Very effective.

I stamped the definitions Inspire, Create and Delight from the Life Definitions (pf 123) stamp set and glittered the edges of the pale plum mat.
I then coloured some White Grosgrain ribbon with Pale Plum and Perfect Plum ink using the sponge daubers to transfer the colour to the ribbon. I cut the newly coloured ribbon and added some Very Vanilla ribbon to the mix and tied them to the spiral binding on the Journal. I then added a few little butterflies and a ribbon along the edge and hey presto all done!

I hope this inspires you all to go and create!!!
Till next time. Cheers, Kasey
