Vintage Vogue

Today my SIL, Kate came over to do our weekly crafting get together. Whilst having a restless nights sleep a couple of nights ago I tried to think of a design for our card this week. As I have said before I really love the Vintage Vogue set, so of course that was where my thoughts ended up. The first one I made was with the 3D flower made from 3 images, cut and stuck together. The second one I decided to make with the one large image and then I wanted to do one in spring colours. I am please with how they all turned out.

Sale a bration freebie stamps

A couple of ladies managed to get the free set of 'Sweet Summer' stamps from the sale-a-bration event and as they are beginners at crafting I thought I would give them some inspiration. I saw these cards made up on Julie's blog and really liked the fresh colours so thought I would CASE them. If you want to see any more cards from Julie check out the link at Julie's blog

Vintage Vogue

On Wednesday I went to my Sister-in-law's to do a spot of crafting. I particularly liked the card she had made for her Sisters birthday and a variation of a sympathy card she had made. I thought I would like to make one but I don't have the same stamp set do decided to use vintage vogue (my favourite stamp set at the moment - it is so versatile and classy). If you want to check out the other versions follow the link to to Kate's Krafts at I intend to make this a few times using different colours as I think it will be suitable for Mothers Day (pink) or Easter (yellow)

I was asked to make a card for a 30 year old who loves shoes. As Stampin Up don't do shoes (yet - maybe sometime in the future?) I decided to use some peel off which I have had for ages and designer papers from my stash. I have used the punches from SU to make the square plaque and circle sentiment.

It was my friednds birthday on 4th Feb (yes, 4th FEB!) and I forgot to send her a card. I got the inspiration of this one from Monica's blog. It uses the wings from the Bird on a Branch punch to make the petals of the flowers. I enjoyed making this and hope that my friend will forgive me for being a month late in sending her card!
