Chloe has a surprise birthday party for a friend tomorrow, and I’ve almost cleaned out my stash of cards. I needed to come up with a card for Charlotte and since inspiration was lacking I have combined two challenges to create this card. The first challenge was Colour Q #119 using Pretty in Pink, Going Gray, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo and Whisper White. The second challenge was Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge #367. Here they both are 🙂
Stamps: Pennant Parade, Delicate Doilies, Outlined Occasions (Sale-a-bration set, available Jan 25)
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Subtles stack DSP
Ink: Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Pretty in Pink, Going Gray
Other: Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Petite Pennants punch, White Baker’s Twine, Blender Pen.
This gorgeous greeting set will be available during Sale-A-Bration – Jan 25 ~ March 31. Isn’t it cute???
Don’t fall off your chair there 🙂 Yes, I’m actually posting a card on my blog today.
This is the first card I have made since my last post almost 3 months ago. I couldn’t get away with choosing a birthday card for Kimberley from my stash since she has seen them all. I had some brand new goodies to play with too which made this card lots of fun. As I was unwell and left my card making until the last minute, I have cased the design for Kim’s card from Nichole Heady’s blog. I saw a card very similar to this a few months back and loved it.
Some of the items I’ve used are from the brand new Stampin’ Up! catalogue which begins on September 1st. If you would like a copy to drool over, please email me.
