Zoo Babies

My card today is a card I made for a friend who is expecting a baby - I don't know if it is a boy or a girl, but we will find out in late July/early August :-)

The colours are pretty in pink, pool party and early espresso and the stamp set is Zoo Babies - it is such a cute set.

First birthday

It was a special little girls first birthday a little while ago, and of course she needed a little girly birthday card.

I used the retired stamp set 'Under the Big Top' and coloured it would my Stampin' Write markers. It is framed with silver glimmer paper on Raspberry Ripple and Whisper White card stock.

The Raspberry Ripple card stock is stamped with the birthday candle from 'Cycle Celebrations' with Versamark ink.

Scalloped Tag Topper Punch card

Today is a very special Granny's 60th birthday so of course she needed a very special birthday card.

I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to make the card and it was super easy but looks really fancy :-) I saw this design on Leonie Schroder's blog.

The stamp set used is Papillon Potpourri and I used the Itty Butterfly punch and some ribbon.


The colors are Basic Gray, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White.

Card in a box

Sale-a-bration ends on Monday, so not much time left to get your free stuff.

Be sure to check out all the Sale-a-bration stuff online - you can pick a free gift with every $90 spent.

Here is a card in a box using the Sale-a-bration DSP which is available as a free product when you spend $90. It is beautiful!

The card folds flat and can be shipped in a regular envelope. I used the Secret Garden framelits for the leaves and the Bitty Butterfly punch for the butterflies. I also added some rhinestones and gave it all a good spray of Vanilla Shimmer Mist.

Blog hop

Fantastic News Peeps!

This week I have organised a Blog Hop with some members of my team.  Stamping Shanni has challenged us all to blog more frequently so part of that is offering some mentoring and incentives to start posting on our blogs and to share some of our amazing creations.

The Blog Hop will run from today until next Wednesday 2 April!

Sometimes Blog Hops have themes but ours is simply to create, share and inspire! Of course we are all Stampin' Up! Demonstrators but we each have unique and varied styles and the projects that we will share will be vastly different.

Please take a look at the Paper Belles Blog Hop, follow the blog, follow on Pinterest, leave a comment, pin anything that you like and refer friends.

Hope to see you popping by my blog over the next week so that you can see all that we have been up to and I trust that you will visit others in the Blog Hop!

We're so excited!
