Quick Cards, Boxes and Wrapping

What do you do when you need a quick set of cards ... or gift wrapping?

Grab some delightful Altenew Delicate Blooms stickers ... punch some circles ... stamp or diecut some lacy backgrounds ... add some ribbon ... and voila!!

Bottom left is the box I made for the cards ... pizza box style.
Bottom right is another gift wrapped in brown paper, then there was a band of the card I had used for the box left over, so I wrapped that around and popped on the decoration.

Welcome Baby Girl

We are going to get so many cute cards for this week's CASology challenge - the cue word is FURBABY.

I don't have very many animal stamps, so I wondering what I was going to use. But then I remembered this WPlus9 set ... which is a NBUS set for me. My nephew and his partner are expecting a baby girl any day now, so I had to make a card for them.  I did a bit of sneaky masking so I could join the "Dad" to the Mom and baby.

I decided to keep to a minimal colour combo to keep things CAS.

Come on over to the other DT members and meet their Furbabies!

Eucalyptus leaves

I was so inspired by the Alexandra Renke soft eucalyptus leaves paper, I wanted to see what I could do with my supplies.

The leaf canopy set from Altenew is a good start.  I started with the solid stamp with an ink and spritz technique using Antique Linen and Faded Jeans. Then I used the outline stamp in brown.

You can never get the exact same result with this technique. I was trying with varying amounts of ink.

It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge at CASology. This week's cue word is WAVE.

I decided to look through my embossing folders to see if I had any that would fit that theme and was surprised to find 3 of them.

I stamped my starfish in different colours and paired them up with different "seaweed" looking dies. The sand stamp is an old wood mounted stamp from South Africa and is about 25 years old!! 

I added some white Liquid Pearls to give more dimension to the starfish.

Which colour and embossing folder do you prefer?

It would be a wonderful if you popped along to visit the rest of the Design Team and gave them a wave too.

It's your Day

Time to use up some of my glitter card stash. 

Here's what it looked like when I just put it on. This was using the Wendy Vecchi Embossing paste.

Once it had dried, the pink colour came through. Gives a soft pretty look. Decorated with punched Hydrangea petals.

Thought I'd try with another brand of embossing paste.  This is the Daler Rowney Texture Paste. I love how the white pops off the glitter cardstock.

Which do you prefer?
