Thanks So Much SoHo Subway!

Oh no, I’ve used it again, I can’t believe it! I’ve used a design from the Soho Subway DSP yet again but it was just what I required as a background layer don’t you think?! I just love this card as it’s very clean compared to my usual style of creating yet it still looks busy enough for me if that makes sense.

Thank so much Soho Subway

The Papaya Collage Stamp Set is just so versatile. The butterfly does require some fussy-cutting but with a pearl in the center is very effective. The frame I stamped onto the Whisper White in stamped-off Early Espresso Classic Ink then in Gumball Green stamped the fern inside the frame.

Simple Papaya Collage Butterfly

The sentiment I chose from the Oh, Hello Stamp Set using Raspberry Ripple which I also used to sponge the sides before using Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere to the card.

Oh Hello all that Glitters!

Oh my, I look at this card now and I feel like that Swedish cook from the Muppet’s who was always saying “layer upon layer upon layer”, or was that an old Australian television commercial I was thinking of? Either way, when I look at this card now all I see are layers!

Whisper White base with a Black layer to border what was once  a Whisper White pieces of cardstock until I spritzed it with Rich Razzleberry. Isn’t it incredible how it dilutes to a gorgeous soft pink? Onto this I’ve then spritzed some of the Vanilla Shimmer (page 164 – check it out!).

Oh Hello you Primrose Petal Rose you!

Then to these layers I’ve added two different sets of layers. The first being the stamped rose in Primrose Petal from the Oh Hello stamp set which had just the smallest amount of Dazzling Diamonds glued to the petal edges. The edges of the Whisper White cardstock have been inked directly from the sponge pad before being adhered to a border of Basic Gray on top of the Black. Pearl jewels adding a smidge of elegance.

Then to each edge of a strip of Sliver Glimmer Paper (page 156 – my current favorite!) I’ve used Strawberry Slush 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim and a Large Pearl Jewel on either edge. So simple yet effective!

OOh hello you glittery thing!

A very girlie card so perhaps having loads of layers then is apt… perhaps!

Farewell Riding Hood Red!

Only two days left on the Spring Catty and only a smidge longer on any retiring items you may want so be quick!

Inkee Fiddlings - Riding Hood Red - Thanks

This card base is from one of the retiring ten, Riding Hood Red and to this I’ve added a piece of Striped Embossed Riding Hood Red and some DSP from… Print Poetry DSP Stack. In the middle of the card I’ve added embossed Whisper White Card-stock trimmed with Scallop Trim Border in Basic Grey.

Happy Birthday Little Girl!

Just a quick one today as today Girl Child turns 10 – definitely cause for celebration the two of us surviving 10 years together! (I shouldn’t say that as she really is a delight… most of the time!)

Anyways, it wouldn’t be a birthday without a party and what does every party begin with… an invitation! This is her invitation for 2013 which I’m pleased to say she was MORE than happy with!

You're invited!

With so much bling it was a tad difficult to photograph but I did want to point out that the dress is cut from the Stampin’ Up! Glimmer Spray which I’ve simply spritzed with Pink Pirouette. This is it close up – nice huh?

SU! Glimmer Paper!

The party is tomorrow – wish me luck! 🙂

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

Oh, Hello!

There’s no denying it, when I first went through the Stampin’ Up! Spring Catalog, the Oh, Hello Stamp Set was not a set that jumped out of me. It just didn’t seem like me I suppose but

Oh, Hello Clear Stamp Set

I looked at it again last week whilst preparing for a workshop and it really tweaked my interest as you can see. Especially with the 5/8″ Vanilla Flower Trim that is also in the Spring Catty. Use on mass or singularly as I’ve done here (not that you can really see unfortunately).

Oh, Hello - Primrose Pink with Jewels

The next card is the same… but different. I used four of the five current In-Colors to color the pattered arrows to create yet another effect on this card. These Paper Doilies in the Spring Catty are also a new fav of mine!

Oh, Hello - Colored Arrows and ScallopDot Ribbon PunchIt’s a very clean set and once I began playing with it, there were so many possibilities. I even used the rose as a background (with a hint of Dazzling Diamonds of course!).

Oh, Hello - Primrose Pink Rose Background

I love the 1-1/4″ Two Tone Ribbons that are also on offer in the Spring Catty. There are two to choose from – Pink Pirouette/Rose and Basic Gray/Basic Black. The Basic Gray/Basic Black is what I chose on the following card along with spritzing the Whisper White Card-stock with Rich Razzleberry. Just a few drop from the Ink Refills and you’ve quickly created a beautiful new background.

Oh, Hello - Spritzing with a Single Rose

There are even more cards I made but as I forgotten how to photograph cards (these are scanned) I’ll leave those for another occasion.

The Stampin’ Up! Spring Catalog, like their Idea Book & Catalog, finishes May 31 so if there’s anything that you are interested in, now would be the time to contact me with an order as time is disappearing quickly!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!
