Wild about Glitter

Posted in Cards tagged , , , , at 5:14 pm by bejewelledcreations

Here’s a little card that I’ve sent to my brother-in-law and his wife, as they’ve just told us they’re expecting! We’re Thrilled about their exciting news and of course, I just *had* to make them a card for the occasion!

The elephant from Wild About You is perfect for baby cards and I just adore the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter detail.

At such an early stage we don’t know whether they’re having a boy or a girl, so I’ve used both pink and blue on the card.  But because there isn’t so much pink on the outside of the card, I’ve used a pink ‘card insert’ to write my message. (I doubt they’ll find out the sex of the baby before-hand, so it will be a wonderful surprise!)

In Celebration of my Blog

I’ll find an excuse for a card anywhere I can! And so, In Celebration of creating my Blog, I’m posting this card that I made recently. Its inspiration comes from a layout and design by Makeesha (http://www.makeeshabyl.com.au/index.php/category/stamp-set-samples/priceless/)

 I have used one of my (many) favrourite Stampin’ Up!® Stamp sets, “Priceless”.

If you’d like to re-create this card, I have used Pumpkin Pie and Not Quite Navy cardstock from the Earth Elements range and Bashful Blue from Soft Subtles. I stamped the large scroll image with VersaMark on the Not Quite Navy cardstock and then tore the edges to create a soft look. Adhere this to the centre of the Pumpkin Pie card. Ink the small scroll from Priceless with Night of Navy ink (Rich Regals), and stamp it on a square of Very Vanilla cardstock. Adhere the Very Vanilla cardstock onto Bashful Blue and trim as necessary. I have distressed the edges of the Bashful Blue cardstock with my fingernails (very expensive tool!!) To finish the card off, I have stamped the heart image with Really Rust ink, cut around it and adhered it with the Snail adhesive to the card. Finally, stamp the Happiness stamp from Warm Words, and you’re done!

Enjoy!
