My Twisty Turny Mechanical card

I finally did it. I have been wanting to make this mechanical card for a while and admit I had to turn to Pinterest to learn how. It magically twists and turns as you open it. It uses several bundles, stamp sets and the Falling in Love suite. The bundles were So in Love and Dragonfly Dreams and the stamp set is Touches of Texture. The base colour is Flirty Flamingo. It’s such a fun idea. I can hardly wait for the middle of March when a close friend has her birthday! đź’ś


Mediterranean Moments Birthday card 

Used Mediterranean Moments on this one and watercolour with Stampin Write Markers and aqua painters. I also used lots of Sale-a-bration items: Avant Garden for the sentiment, Carried Away DSP and Gold Metallic Ribbon. I’m thinking I might do a video on just the watercolour technique on this one.

Best Birds card

Ok yes another best birds bundle feature. The main colours in this one are emerald envy, flirty flamingo and peekaboo peach. I also used basic grey archival ink with the bird watercoloured with daffodil delight. Finally embellished with pearl basic jewels. #imbringingbirthdaysback #stampinup

Best Birds Birthday card

Well my first order from the new catty arrived! I bought the best birds bundle! I decided to do it entirely with in-colours. I used peekaboo peach, dapper denim, tip top taupe,and emerald envy ink and mint macaron, peekaboo peach and dapper denim card stock on a whisper white card base. #imbringingbirthdaysback #stampinup

Happy Blooming Birthday card

This is a simple two colour one layer birthday card. The colours are wisteria wonder and blushing bride and the two stamp sets used are Flower Patch and Petite Petals. I embellished with Rhinestones jewels and just so the carefully cut edge shows I adhered a strip of the retired have a Cuppa DSP onto the outer edge of the inside. #imbringingbirthdaysback #stampinup

Bohemian Birthday card

I wanted to show case my favourite retiring in-colours both paper and ink. The colours are blackberry bliss, hello honey, Tangelo Twist and mossy meadows. None of the dies, punches or stamp sets are retiring with the exception of the sentiment which is from the retiring set sassy salutations. I was trying to achieve a kind of bohemian collage. And I’m quite pleased with the results. I can’t see myself not using these wonderful rich assortment of colours any time soon. I’m not afraid of retired stuff at all. I even use competitors products from time to time. But for the most part I try to continue to throw in a bunch of new stuff to drool over. I’m unpredictable. #imbringingbirthdaysback #stampinup

Lovely as a Tree Birthday card

I finally had time to do a birthday card! This on uses the stamp sets Lovely as a Tree, the now retiring Summer Silhouettes and the sentiment from Butterfly Basics. All coloured with alcohol markers and mounted on Cucumber Crush and Marina Mist card stock. #imbringingbirthdaysback #stampinup
