Oh Happy Day

Excitement this morning when my pre-order from the new Occasions catalogue arrived at my door! Once I had unpacked my new stuff, I couldn't wait to sit and play to see if the ideas floating around in my head would work with real stamps and paper!

First up a bright and cheerful centre-step birthday card using lots of new goodies - stamps, designer series paper, framelits dies, punch and embossing folder. Here tis:

Materials used:
  • stamps - Starburst Sayings, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
  • card - so saffron, coastal cabana, very vanilla, Retro Fresh dsp
  • other - starburst framelits, Big Shot, arrows embossing folder, pool party baker's twine, tangerine tango button (retired SAB), dimensionals, banner punch (SAB)
  • non SU - balloon punch

Love the colour combination in this dsp.

I also like the new High Tide dsp but am not that keen on the co-ordinating stamp set, so I've used a delightful Mo Manning digital image with the papers to make this masculine card:

Materials used:
  • non SU stamp - Captain Hugh (Mo Manning)
  • card - soft sky, Pacific point, whisper white, summer starfruit, watercolour
  • other - banner punch (SAB), computer and printer (sentiment)

It felt really good to be back in my craft room again so I think I'm going to have to do it again real soon!

Thanks for calling in.

These are great sneak peeks Kez. I can't wait for my pre-order to get here, probably another few days. Have fun playing with your new toys!
