I coloured this one with Watercolour pencils, including the Lemon Lime Twist one which came inside the Lots of Happy Card Kit. I'm going to be super sad to see to see the Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon go. It's one of my favourites and is great for baby cards too.

Stampin' Up! Southern Serenade Vintage Birthday Card

Welcome to April friends, and blessed Easter Wishes to you and your family.

 

What's happening in Stampin' Up! in April?

Next weekend, demonstrators around the globe will be gathering at OnStage events for the unveiling of the 2018/19 Annual Catalogue, which will be available for customers during May for a June 1st start (to register your interest in receiving a catalogue when they become available, go here). I will be heading to Sydney with lots of my team which will be lots of fun and excitement. This year will be even more fun, as it's Stampin' Up!'s 30th Anniversary and we are celebrating like it's 1988.

I'll be able to tell you all about the OnStage event, and give you some sneak peeks from Tuesday April 10th.

To catch some bits and pieces of the fun that I can show earlier, make sure you are following me on Facebook and Instagram.

I can't wait to bring you the fun and excitement of OnStage!

Today's Card

Today I have a vintage style birthday card for you, using one of the lovely stamp sets from the Occasions Catalogue called Southern Serenade. Sometimes we miss these stand alone stamp sets while we focus on bundles, but this stamp set is too pretty to miss. I particularly like its vintage style and the beautiful fine lace image.

Southern Serenade

I have used Shimmery White to stamp on, and Crumb Cake for the stamping of the lace images. I have stamped the floral image in Basic Black Archival and coloured with watercolour pencils.

This stamp set comes with some lovely accompanying images of the lace and smaller floral images, as well as three very versatile sentiments. It's a great one to add to your collection of stamps and is available in clear mount and wood (see links below). The 'Happy Birthday' and 'Thank You' greeting also fit nicely inside the Pretty Label Punch.

Stampin' Up! Graceful Garden with some vintage inspired texture.

Hello lovely friends. 

This week I was lucky enough to attend the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, which is a really fabulous floral, backyard and landscape gardening show in Melbourne. Seeing all the beautiful floral displays motivated me to come home and finish this card I had started at a friends last Monday.

Rose 2

This stamp set is called Gracious Garden and it's from the 2017 Annual Catalogue. I hadn't played with it before, but now I really love it! I coloured it with the Stampin' Blends (light and dark Pink Pirouette, light and dark Old Olive and light Rich Razzleberry). I then fussy cut the image and adhered both the stamped image and stamped rectangle using Dimensionals.

Rose 1

I have used the debossed side of the Garden Trellis embossing folder (I really like how this pattern coordinates with the background pattern in the Gracious Garden stamp set. My greeting is from Cake Soiree stamp set and I have stamped in Early Espresso and cut the greeting out with a 1" Circle Punch. A bit of lace tied around the stem and a White Lace Doily finishes off my card.

Blossoming Basket

I used the Stampin Blends in Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette and Rich Razzleberry to colour the image (after stamping with Memento Black). My cardstock colours are Crumb Cake, Powder Pink and Shimmery White.

BASKET sab

My greeting is from At Home With You, as I wanted a very small greeting and I love the font in this set. I have used coordinating Powder Pink ribbon as well.  I love how the ribbon coordinates in so well with the Stampin' Blends colours as well.

Stampin' Up! All Inclusive Lots of Happy Cardmaking Kit

All inclusive kits are one of the first things I always seem to be attracted to in new catalogues, and the lots of Happy Kit in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue is no exception. I think I love the kits because I can grab them and sit at the kitchen table, or even the lounge coffee table and have everything I need in the cute little box, rather than sitting away from the family while I craft. I also love the simplicity and the variety in the kits.

This kit contains everything you need to make 20 cards (envelopes included too) with 4 each of 5 designs. There is a full colour leaflet showing how each card is put together. It even includes the pencils for the colouring. You can also buy refills for the kits too.

Stampin Up Lots of Happy Card Kit
