Best Day Ever

Dear Crafters,

How did you enjoy yesterdays blog hop? I thought there were some wonderful creations for our inspiring team members!

Well today, I continue the theme of my blog post and created another card using the same stamp set, DSP and colour combinations.

Best Day Ever

The base card is Calypso Coral stamped with the coordinating ink. The Soft Suede layer, I punched with the scallop border punch and added a piece of the Best Year Ever Designer Paper. I used the banner punch to add some interest to the side of the card.

The sentiment from the Best Day Ever Stamp set is stamped on Whisper White card stock in Coastal Cabana ink and mounted onto Calypso Coral Core’dinations card stock.

I added the ribbon, but wasn’t sure about a bow, I thought that it didn’t suit the style of this card, so I just made a very simple knot.

Be sure to decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope!

Best Day Ever

I would love you to comment below with your thoughts on this card.

Dear Crafters,

Today I’m excited to bring you a blog hop with some of the awesome ladies in the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! Team. Today we focus on the new Occasions Stampin’ Up!

There are lots of fabulous free items to choose from (ask me for a brochure and an Occasions Catalogue) and the promotion goes right through until 31st March.

Better still, become part of our awesome fun, friendly and supportive Art With Heart team. We have a really large team Australia wide that has been around since Stampin’ Up! came to Australia. We have a very active team forum and also have in person stamp days, challenges, card swaps, product shares and more.

It’s quick and easy to join online too. Ask me how!

Now let’s get into showing you what you can make with the great new products in the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues.

You have come to my blog from Ros Davidson.

For my projects, I have used the Best Day Ever Stamp Set, Best Year Ever Accessory Pack & Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration Brochure) and the Something Borrowed Embellishments & Note Tag Punch (Occasions Catalogue). 

Best Year Ever

I began with a card base in Coastal Cabana and stamped the background in the coordinating ink. I added the sentiment onto Whisper White card and punched it out. The DSP is added over the top after I sponged the edges and added the ribbon and embellishments.

I just love these Something Borrowed embellishments which I added on top of the ribbon, which I have folded to look like the pattern in the DSP (did you notice that?!!!).

and don’t forget to decorate the inside of your card and your envelope!

Best Year Ever

and why stop here…. I continued this theme (as I just love these colours together) and made a little magazine file folder to hold up to 10 cards and envelopes in. What a great idea these would be to make as gifts for loved ones.

How did I make this? Well, the following diagrams should give you the basic measurements. Be sure to decorate the “outside” as shown before you stick it together. Adhere the Belly Band last before decorating.
