Hip Hip Hooray

Brain not in Gear anymore

Today I thought I'd go away from the usual type of card for my brother in law and this is what I came up with, using DSP and the hip hip hooray thinlits die I've had sitting on my shelf  for a while now.  I don't know about you but I never like to cut into new DSP and thought it was about time I started to.  Realised when I looked at the image below I should have placed the happy birthday over to the left or cut the bottom of the word bubble off, don't you think.  Brain and dangerous is what I think at the moment. 

Well off to watch the afternoon film on TV now!!! Love being retired, lots of lovely things to do 

The materials used are:
Ink: Lost Lagoon
Card stock:Lost Lagoon Shimmery Black
Card base: NSU
Stamps: Balloon Celebration, Sprinkles of Life
Punches: Corner (nsu), Washi Label

Ribbon: Lost Lagoon striped

Will be back again soon with more cards

Butterfly wall

Bold Butterfly meets Borderlines
It's a bright morning here in the West Midlands today and I have a nice bright card for you.
With a mixture of old and new again I created this card closely following one I found on Pinterest I think? If it's yours let me know so I can credit you with idea.  I didn't have the flowers down the wall stamp so substituted the borderlines stamp with some tiny flowers coming dow it instead.  I used my blendabilities to colour some of the pearls and added some sequin trim to finish it off.  Hope my friend liked it? I know I did when it was finished. 

The materials used are:

Ink: Calypso Coral, Mossy Meadow, Versa Mark
Card stock: Calypso Coral, Very Vanilla
Card base: NSU
Stamps: Borderlines (retired), Petite Pairs, Watercolor Wings
Embossing Powder: Calypso Coral (retired)
Embossing folders: Brick Wall
Punches: Itty Bitty Shapes (retired), Large Oval, Scallop Oval
Framelits: Bold Butterfly
Thinlits: Butterflies
DVS: Botanical Gardens
Accessories: Pearls (stash), Sequin Trim Blushing Bride, Wink of Stella Clear

Will be back again soon with more cards
