Pootlers Birthday Blog Hop with Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Hi there,

Today I am taking part in our monthly Pootlers team Birthday Blog Hop. Every month, we have the chance to showcase a birthday card we have sent to someone special. My card this month was one I made for a special friend, and I then went on to use the design in a card class. 


This is a very simple little card using the lovely "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" stamp set. I love this set - so versatile - so many possibilities. And I just love the font used for the greetings.



 I have used just three colours of ink to stamp this card. All the outlines were stamped in Smoky Slate, the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist and the flowers in Sweet Sugarplum. I have "stamped off" some of the flowers to give that lighter effect.


Oh and once again I've used the Everyday Label Punch for the sentiment panel. There's a little bit of sponging around the edges to make it "pop"!

To see my video tutorial of how I made my card just click on the link HERE or the image below.


As promised, here are the measurements for the card:

Sweet Sugarplum card blank: 
8 3/4 ins x 4 7/8ins, scored at 4 7/8ins
12.5 cm x 25 cm scored at 12.5 cm

White panel: 
4 5/8 x 4 5/8ins
12 cm x 12cm

Hope you like my project today - please hop around to all the others who are participating in the blog. There are some lovely projects for you to see from some very talented designers.

Til next time,

Jill

Painted harvest from Stampin' Up!

Hi there everyone,

How are you all? It's been busy, busy, busy around here just recently. My three children are now "grown up" - well theoretically anyway but for a few months I have all three living back at home with us. Although that is lovely in lots of ways it does mean quite a lot of extra work for me in terms of washing, cleaning, tidying, cooking etc! So less time for crafting and blogging. I have still been running classes though and have all the projects we have made to bring you over the coming weeks. I'm especially excited about the Christmas cards I have to show you - it's my favourite time of the year to craft! So watch this space! 

Today I'm just popping in here quickly to show you this card. 


This card is not one of my creations but is a card I received as a thank you from a fellow team member, Liz Yuille at Old Stables Crafts. One of the really lovely things about being a Stampin' Up! demo is being part of a team and building friendships and relationships with other demos. We support each other, and cheer each other on to achieve more in our businesses. I helped out one of Liz's team with some patterned papers she needed urgently for a class and Liz sent this card as a thank you. 

It uses the lovely "Painted Harvest" stamp set - another set I haven't inked up nearly enough! Must put that to right as soon as possible.



I love the colours Liz has used on the card - Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry. An unusual combination but it works really well.

Thanks Liz. 

Will be back soon,

Jill
