Card Class – Hexagon Punch Ombre Style

This gorgeous card features the Hexagon Punch from Stampin’ Up! and is also a great way to use up scrap card stock. I may have been late jumping onto the Ombre trend band wagon but I think you’ll agree it’s a style that will never grow old.

Card Class- Build A birthday Cake

This is a fabulous stamp set and can be used many ways. This is one of my samples using Cherry On Top Designer Series paper Stack. It’s a very simple layout but this stamp is really the star of the show.

Card Class- Party Pants

Another great Stamp Set released for 2016 Sale-A-Bration Party Pants.
It coordinates beautifully with the Cherry On Tops Designer Series stack.
I wanted the larger balloons to be the feature so I placed a piece of Vellum from the Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack.
The Vellum pack is Free with the Sale-A-Bration Promotion.

3 Cards 1 Stamp Set – Vintage Leaves By Stampin’ Up!

Selecting the colour of your card front is equally as important to set the mood. Traditionally Christmas cards are created with primary tones such as Red and Green. Metallic colours are often used for a sense of glamour where as White for it’s clean and crisp appearance.

You will find the card samples I have made using Stampin’ Up!s Vintage Leaves stamp set great examples of this. I stayed with a similar layout to make the comparison much more obvious.

The fireplace adorned with holly,… Continue reading Winter Wishes Ensemble
