I spent some time this morning updating my picture galleries in the right hand column for you. I the process I realised two things:
- I don't make anywhere enough kids, male and baby cards so I had better get onto that; and
- I have some cards in there that are some absolute favourites of mine.
So I thought I would take a quick trip down memory lane and post some of my favourite cards from 2011.
This one was a favourite for a few reasons. It truly reflects my love of vintage style, I just LOVE the dress form stamp from the Stampin' Up! Established Elegance set, and I loved how the colour combination of Always Artichoke and the Pretty in Pink came together.
This next one I love mostly for the texture I was able to create using the embossed fabric. I also love how the colours of Soft Suede and Perfect Plum come together. This set is called Clearly for You.
This one I can best describe as being a favourite purely for the way the elements of Stampin' Up! Creative Elements stamp set came together. It was one of the first cards I made using the First Edition DSP and it's one of my favourite go to items for card making. Gives a neutral touch, without being too start IYKWIM?
This one I love for the colours. A Marina Mist background, with Whisper White, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry. I think I also like the mix of tone on tone stamping with the crispness of the stamping on Whisper White. This Stampin' Up! set is called Nature Walk.
These cards were very simple, but I really liked how you can make a statement with a simple embossing folder and a strip of patterned paper.
Now a couple of my favourite Christmas cards from last year. This set is called Merry and Type. As this a contemporary style set, I used brighter colours in Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo. Again I have used some tone on tone stamping, but also added some silver embossing and coloured the greeting stamp with Stampin' Write Markers to coordinate.
Finally, a very vintage Christmas card using the Petite Pennants Builder punch and Welcome Christmas stamp set.
Hope your day is happy and bright,
