7 hearts for 7 Years

It was my husband's and my 7th Wedding Anniversary on Monday.  This is the card I made for him.  I used our square lattice embossing folder on smoky slate cardstock and adhered it to a night of navy card - his favourite colours.  Then I used perfect pennants for the sentiment.  7 hearts down the side from our silver glimmer for 7 years completed a fairly simple card that didn't have too much "fluff" for a guy.

I thought I'd also show you the lovely card from my Mum and Dad too that my Mum made for us.

Summer Starfruit & Simply Pressed Clay name badge

I've been thinking that I need a name badge for when I'm out doing various workshops etc.  So this afternoon I whipped one up using our Simply Pressed Clay and the Summer Starfruit Grosgrain Ribbon from our Occasions Mini Catalogue. 

What do you think?  Does it work?  I'd love to hear your comments.

I carved it myself with Undefined

When we were at camp the other weekend, we were given a small Undefined kit to play with.  There was a competition actually to see who made the best stamp, although I didn't manage to come up with an idea and get mine carved in time. 

However I have finally got hold of some tools (our kit was just a sample so didn't include the tools) and I've carved my very own stamp.  Here it is:

With two little girls and no princess stamps I decided on a princess crown for my stamp.  It was great fun and really rather satisfying to know you've done it yourself.  Why not have a go yourself - contact me to order your kit and have a go.

Wedding cards

I received an order on the weekend for two wedding cards, so I thought I'd share one of them with you.  The lady wanted something a royal blue colour (to match the invitation) and we decided on Midnight Muse

I used the stamp set Love and Laughter for the dress (can you see the clear embossing on the dress), and the Adorning Accents embossing folder with the coordinating Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies.  I also used our fabulous Glimmer Paper for some wedding sparkle.

Make sure you contact me soon to order your Midnight Muse products as it is part of the 2012-2014 In Colour Collection and will be retiring on the 30th June.
If you know someone who'd like a custom made card I'm here to help.
