Eggstra Spectacular!

With Spring Break almost over it’s now time to begin preparations for Easter. I can never work out if it’s a good thing or a bad thing when Easter falls in late April.

Whatever the dates for Easter though, cards are still required and what better set is there then the gorgeous set in the Occasions Catty, the Eggstra Spectacular Stamp Set (yup, I may just have kicked the Spring Catty habit but no promises, lol!) ! Seriously, how cute is this?

Eggstra Spectacular - the cutest Easter set EVER!

With a couple of items which are still available from Sale-a-Bration, combined with paper from the  Fresh Prints DSP Stack, the end result is the cutest Easter card!

 Then for some reason I once AGAIN (even I’m beginning to get tired of this) reached for the Summer Starfruit Cardstock, pairing it with the Silver Heat Embossing – making it very regal indeed!

My next card actually came together quite by accident as there were a couple of the tags from the Sale-a-Bration Designer Banner Kit on my table and, well… this goes with this goes with this and voila! How cute is that little bunny I ask you? 🙂 Eggstra Spectacular - Banner Kit - JIF

As you can see, that Designer Banner Kit is quite versatile so if you haven’t obtained one for yourself yet, there’s still just under a week before 2014 Sale-a-Bration concludes so please, PLEASE call me today to place your order – 250-632-7248.

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

You’re Lovely in Pink!

For a Fast Friday, it’s taking me longer to write this post than it did to make the card – what’s with THAT, lol?! Sadly, it really has become one of THOSE weeks. 🙁

Plus it would seem this week I’m in a very “pink” frame of mind. Not sure why, perhaps its a Ying/Yang thing, but after last week always reaching for the Bermuda Bay, this week I’m turning to pink. And if that’s not bad enough, I’ve CASE’d a card almost as exactly AS IS. Honestly, this seldom EVER happens with me. Habit has me changing most everything without even realizing it!

Are you familiar with this term – CASEing? Copy And Share Everything! It’s very acceptable in card-making although card etiquette does ask that credit is given where credit is due. In this CASE (pardon the pun but it had to be said, lol) it was Sharon Cheng, one VERY talented lady.

Now, without further ado here is MY card, lol!

Youre Lovely in Pink!

Talk about a great way to use up your scraps as all the colored cardstock came from my scrap-stash. Even the piece of White Vellum Cardstock came from my scraps. I love how this You’re Lovely stamp from the Sale-a-Bration selection compliments the Deco Labels Collections Dies.

Also, if you’re wanting to try this card yourself, the width of my strips from left to right were – 4cm, 3.5cm, 3cm and 2.5cm. The length is at your own discretion.

You’re Lovely Washi Tape

A quick card doesn’t mean a card need lose any of its charm and I think this card exemplifies this beautifully. The urge to add a border of Primrose Petals or Melon Mambo Cardstock under the Whisper White Cardstock is still great but so far I’ve resisted! 🙂

Gingham Garden Butterflies

When I first saw today’s Mojo Challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do. This is today’s sketch for Mojo 331.

Mojo 331 SketchOf course what I created was something completely different to what I had in mind. Not that I’m unhappy with what I achieved, it’s simply NOTHING like what I had in mind. This is it…

Mojo 331 - Gingham Butterflies - JIF

For the Decorative Dots Embossing I used White Vellum then cut a banner from the Gingham Garden DSP which was lined with some Primrose Petals Cardstock. A strip of Primrose Petals 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon lies diagonally between the embossing and the cardstock.

Mojo 331 - Gingham Butterflies - Hello

The square of cardstock to go under the sentiment I chose in So Saffron then stamped in So Saffron Classic Ink with a stamp from the Sale-a-Bration You’re Lovely set. The stamp is a clean set of four little flower-like images but I stamped it randomly albeit always horizontally. The butterflies come from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits. Both the butterflies and the Hello sentiment from the Label Something Stamp Set have been edged with Dazzling Details.

Mojo 331 - Gingham Butterflies - Candy Dots

Across the top of the banner I’ve added some Tempting Turquoise Candy Dots (I thought I was adding Island Indigo but wasn’t if close, ha)just for a little something extra.

CARD RECIPE
Cardstock: Whisper White, Primrose Petals, Island Indigo, So Saffron, White Vellum
Stamp Sets: You’re Lovely Sale-a-Bration, Label Something
Classic Ink: Island Indigo, So Saffron, Crumb Cake (for sponging)
DSP: Garden Gingham
Big Shot: Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Decorative Dots Sale-a-Bration,
Envelope Framelits Dies
