OK, who stole October??? One minute term 4 starts and the next, I'm starting to see Christmas stuff everywhere and making up my Christmas lists! The last few weeks seem to have flown by in a flurry of school activities , work and just life. With Melbourne Cup day being a public holiday here in Melbourne, we get a 4 day long weekend this weekend, so I have a chance to upload a few cards I made a couple of weeks ago.
This one uses the Stampin' Up! Letters to Santa DSP and Season of Joy stamp set. I used the matching marker colours (Marina Mist, Old Olive, Blushing Bride) on the image and added some adhesive pearls.
Pear Pizazz is also a great match for this DSP, and since I LOVE the new seam binding, I used that as my ribbon. On the Blushing Bride background card I have stamped the matching star (or is it a flower image?) in Versamark. I quite like how this one turned out and this is a great standby card layout for any rectangle image.
For this next one, I have used a couple of my favourite Stampin' Up! products at the moment, the Stampin' Up! Champagne Glitter Glass and the Lace Border Punch. Don't you think the glitter glass looks fabulous on the tree from Lovely as a Tree? I just embossed the tree in gold and then added the glitter glass afterwards using dabs of Crystal Effects.
For this last one I have again used Stampin' Up! Letters to Santa DSP, and the stamp set is the matching Merry and Type stamp set. I have embossed the image in silver onto Riding Hood Red, and added rhinestone brads to the top of each ornament. The Lace Border Punch makes another appearance too!
Off now to finish preparing my prawns I am taking to a family BBQ for Derby Day tomorrow. I love the Spring Racing Carnival in Melbourne. So much fun even though I don't set foot on a racetrack! It's the only time of year I have a bet on the horses and the TAB love me as I usually pick the horse based on my favourite numbers or liking the name :)
Hoping to get some cards made and popping back before the end of the long weekend. Have a lovely weekend wherever you are and however you will be spending it.
