Trying out my new goodies

Always a goer for a sale, I picked up a pack of Grace Taylor papers on special and found a coordinating butterfly embellishment pack. They formed the base for my baby card that I made for someone at my husbands work. Because it was bigger than my usual size I added a few more details. Love the new in colour ribbons from Stampin up.

Colours: baja breeze, rose red
Stamps: peek a boo (elzybells), banner builder (PTI)
Finishing touches: papers (grace taylor and SU), paper butterflies (grace taylor), typewriter alpha die (cuttlebug), apron lace punch (fiskars), small tag, teddy, heart and star punches, in colour ribbon (SU), buttons, stitching

Birthday card for a scientist

I love making cards that reflect the recipient. This one was no exception. But it did create a bit of a challenge as I had either a scientific theme or a lego theme to go with. The sentiment is a new one that I found recently while browsing the shelves of the craft aisle {love finding little gems and it had the added bonus of buy 2 get one free}. I teamed it up with some basic grey papers and the gears from a Lizzie Anne Design stamp set gizmos and gears {you can find them at Gourmet Rubber Stamps}. Sorted.

Colours: night of navy, crumb cake
Stamps: power of imagination (rosie's studio), gizmos and gears (LAD)
Finishing touches: granola papers (basic grey), stitching, black and copper embossing powder, photo anchor and brad

Sending my sympathy

While I haven't had much of a chance to get to my crafting space of late I did want to put together a sympathy card to send to family as I couldn't go to the funeral. I haven't made many sympathy cards but I went with a neutral palette and added a dash of colour to brighten it up.

Colours: basic grey, basic black, pumpkin pie, baja breeze, so saffron, not quite navy, almost amethyst, lovely lilac
Stamps: trendy trees (SU), impressions (bella)
Finishing touches: apricot and black embossing powder, deb divine embossing folder (cuttlebug), in colour ribbon(SU), rhinestones
