Great Friend

A great friend of mine, Natasha had her birthday in the last couple of weeks. I thought it appropriate that I use the Great Friend stamp set from the Mini Catalogue to make her a card. I love this set - it's so versatile, but also very elegant. Now, if only Stampin' Up! would bring out a punch in the shape of that butterfly...
Stamp Set: Great Friend
Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Going Gray, Whisper White
Ink: Going Gray, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss

What does a double layout have to do with Jane Austen?

I am a huge Jane Austen fan. Last year, on my honeymoon, I was able to visit the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, England. I made this page through a Step By Step challenge over at Home and Scrapped. I coloured the flowers from the Pretties Kit using some ink and a dauber, then put half-pearls or brads in the centre. Once it was done, I still had some photos left over that I wanted to scrap and I made a second page...

Put them together and they look like this:

Cardstock: Close To Cocoa

Patterned Paper: Sweet Always

Stamp Sets: Lovely Letters, Great Friend (Mini)

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie, Pink Pirouette

Punches: Scallop Circle, 1-3/8", Designer Label

Other: Pretties Kit, Daubers

Another Rose

I entered into a Cyber Challenge a couple of weeks ago and one of the challenges was a colour challenge. Although the colours weren't given in Stampin' Up!'s colours, they were pretty easy to match up. I decided to use one of the stamps in A Rose Is A Rose that I haven't used before. I've always thought this rose is too big for a card but would probably suit a scrapbook page, but I think it worked well with this space. I sent the card to my friend Vanessa for her birthday.

Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, Really Rust, Whisper White
Ink: Really Rust
Ribbon: Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon
