Birthday Bash & A Challenge Entry

I've participated in the "Case this Sketch" #103 challenge! One of my friends has a birthday tomorrow, and I made this card for her.

I took the sketch and made a horizontal version of it as well as converting it to a tri-fold card.

I used new Stampin' Up paper & stamp set for this card. These will be available January 6th, if you are interested.

I love the sentiments of this stamp set. I had the traditional "Happy Birthday" on the front, and when you open the card you then see "Celebrate your big day with cake". But then inside... get the little extra, "and perhaps a little ice cream!". Love it!

The colours in these photos came out a little brighter than they actually are, but this "Birthday Bash" paper has beautiful colours and is a lot of fun to use!

Thank you for stopping by to have a look at my challenge entry at Case this Sketch #103.

Happy Stamping!

Catch Up Time...

Hi Everyone,

Due to some chronic back pain for the past few weeks I haven't been adding to this blog. So today, what I will do, is make a different kind of post. A kind of 'Catch Up' post with a photo of the project and a link to the original post so that you can go and take a look at what I have been working on.

Surprise Inside My "Newborn King" Card

If you love, or have a stamp, that lends itself better to alcohol ink markers but you don't have any, this is an alternative. This card also shows you how to create a more unique inside, like a surprise.

I am showing you the photos, and if you wish to know how I did what I did, there will be a link to my Stampin' Up blog with the measurements, etc.below.

So if you want to know how this is done, hop on over to my Stampin' Up blog.

Christmas Card Silver Accents

Busy day today, but I thought I would quickly share a quick card I made a few days ago for my Stampin' Up With Sabrina blog.

I was in the mood for something light and silvery, and something quick. This is what I came up with.

And for the inside, I just did a quick stamp of the continued sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by to have a peek. If you are interested in more details for this card, click here.

Happy papercrafting!

Hope you enjoyed seeing this little mini. You know, it can hold up to 30 photos! Are you making a Christmas mini for this year's Christmas photos?

Happy papercrafting!
