DSP and Punches - easy masculine

This is the Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper. I punches the squares quick, and arranged them on a square of Night of Navy. The card base is Kraft...soon to be called Crumb Cake in the new catalogue. I created a matching envelope using some more of the DSP.

The large circle is cut using the Circle Scissors plus, a really effective tool for cutting large circles. This card is a CASEd from Mary Fish.

Bundle of Joy

I have just run a card workshop at my sister's this weekend. The ladies wanted to make some baby cards and some tween cards. We made 12 cards all up and everyone was happy to spend a relaxing morning creating. Contact me if you would like a card making workshop at home. You just need to find six friends willing to create!
This baby card is made using one of the hostess stamps sets which you could earn by hosting a Stampin' Up! party. I love the look of crisp white with the subtle colours.

Cheep talk...again

Can you tell that I just bought this set?? I am having a lot of fun with it! This card was a CASE from Kween Bee Creations...I pretty much copied her card. Take a look at her blog - she does some beautiful cards often using minimal techniques.
Don't forget Cheep Talk is on sale till the end of July. The 20% off the Starter Kit offer ends then too. I have had a lady join up just to get the discount on this fabulous kit - excluding the business supplies, there are products that total $473 (I added it up yesterday), all for $259! She can then get 20% off her purchases until she decides she wants to finish up. No penalties for dropping! Email me if you are interested Have a great weekend!
