Pink Bliss.....

This is another card that we made at technique class last week.  I am sorry to say that it was my first play with Bliss from the Sale-a-Bration collection, and now I love it, and it's nearly time for SAB to end for another year. 

But you still have 10 days to email me your order of $100.00 if you decide that you have to have this set!!

In case you were wondering, the technique for this card was bleach stamping......the ladies loved it.  So easy, yet effective.

Card stock: Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Riding Hood Red
Stamp Set: Bliss
Other: Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon, Antique Brad, bleach, Basic Pearls.

Happy stamping.....Manda

Bright and Bling-y

My niece is turning 18 next weekend. I had to make her a special card.  She loves bright colours, and what 18 year old doesn't love bling?

Here's the card.

You can just see it in the photo, but I've covered the 18, flower and the black ring in crystal effects and then dusted them with fine red and black glitter.  The 18 came from a friend, who very kindly cut them out for me with a die that she has.

Here is a close up of the glitter.

Card stock: Real Red, Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise
Ink: Basic Black
Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Other: Fine Galaxy Glitter, Black and Real Red Satin Ribbon, Brights Button, Black Twine, Pink Flamingo DSP (retired),  large flower punch, circle punches, crystal effects.

Happy stamping.....Manda

More Regal Cards....

In the last post, I showed you a collection of male cards that I made so that I have some ready to send out.  When I cut the strips of the Regals DSP, I only used half of each 12 inch piece.  So what to do with the other half?  I turned them over, and decided to make a collection of female cards.

Here is a close up of the Always Artichoke version.  You'll notice lots of bling.....a girls gotta have some!!

And here they are, all together.  Again, not the best lighting, I'm sorry, but you get the idea.

Stamp Set:  Always Elegant, Perfect Punches
Card stock: Regals colours, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Regals colours
Other: Black Grosgrain ribbon, Basic Rhinestones, Large oval punch, Regals DSP pack.

Happy Stamping......Manda
