A special gift for a sweet friend

A few weeks ago I made a special gift for a sweet friend of mine . She is a nursing buddy I trained with and also my up line @ Stampin ' Up ! I can't believe I forgot to post it to my blog so here you go !
I adore the sale-a-brat ion stamp Lotus Blossom and it was so much fun to create this for my friend . I then created a matching pop up book card .

The front of the card was created using the Bokeh technique . I just love this design and these colours together.
Stamps : Lotus Blossom , Butterfly Basics , Summer Silhouettes .
Inks : Rich Razzleberry , Pink Pirouette, Pool Party, Wild Wasabi .
Tools : Note Tag Punch , Butterfly framelits 
Paper : Whisper White , Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette.

My friend loved her gift so I was inspired to creat another similar project which I gave away as a lucky door prize at my last card class . The winner was and is still in awe of it and cannot get over the effort I put into it ! So sweet of her to say !

Hi Stampers .
What fun we had today ! I helped my ladies create what would have to be one of my favourite layouts !
The first is my grandson Sam dressed up as a pirate . He's such a cutie don't you think !
I've used some retired , but still favourite sets for these layouts .
Products used : Real Red , Basic Black , Basic Gray cardstock and Typeset DSP .
Circles Framelits .
Stamp sets : Open Sea , Calm Seas ,Just Jawing and Grunge Rock.
Ink : Craft White , Memento Black

In this page Liam , my oldest grandson is dressed as Harry Potter - how cool does he look !
This time I chose Cherry Cobbler cardstock  Typeset and Back To Black DSP and the Alphabet embossing folder was spritzed with Vanilla Smooch to give it authenticity .
I used the Spider Web and Perfect Print embossing folders to stamp with - have you tried it yet ? It's really cool !
Stamp sets used were Choose Happiness ,  Artistic Etchings , Affection Collection , Grunge Rock and Sheltering Tree - love those spooky trees ! This was easily adapted by Coral to make a Halloween LO for her grandaughter and it looked amazing !
That's all for today ! My next class will be a launch day for our new catalogue which goes live on June 2 nd . My launch will be Sunday 14 th June .

Mother' s Day Themed card class

Hi Stampers !
I made these adorable little cups and filled them with chocolates as a  Mother's Day treat for my ladies who continually support me in doing what I love. You can find the tutorial here 
Thanks so much for sharing Traci 😀

At today's class 3 Mother' s Day themed cards were created .
I used some of the retiring in colours for the first two cards .
This one uses the stamp set Mum's Love which is a available  for purchase from the Occasions catalogue . Cased from Pinterest . Some of the ladies used a different greeting .
Used Strawberry Slush , Pink Pirouette , Pistachio Pudding , I Love Lace background stamp ( if you love this get it fast as it is retiring ) , Spring Flowers TEF and Deco Labels framelits . I gave this one to my grandaughter to give her Mum as well as a little cup filled with chocolates .

Delicate Designs TEF and Saclloped Edgelits also retiring . Also cased from Pinterest. I am giving this one to my Mum for Mother' s Day 😍
