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.

Flowering Fields 2

A few days ago I put up a post Fun With Flowering Fields. I loved the layout of the card so much I thought I’d make a few more using the same layout.

I am loving this great coordinating Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper and Flowering Fields Stamp Set found on page 12 of the 2016 Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.

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

Colour is such a motivator and can really set a occasion. A room paint blue feels cool and tranquil and as for a room painted in neutral tones can feel organic and rustic. It’s not a coincidence that Coca Cola packaging is in Red giving the feeling of fun, energy and is eye catching.

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.
