Happy Celebrations

I have enjoyed playing with the Happy Celebrations Stamp Set and matching Celebration Duo Embossing Folders.
My son and daughter in law have moved house today so the sentiment Celebrate New Beginnings was just right for a new home card for them.
I chose Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral as the main colours and used the Watercolour Wings Stamp Set.

Above is a close up of one of the cards.
Next is a Happy New Baby Card. This one will be for a girl but I could easily do another in pink.

I cased a You Tube Video for the next Card. I used the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set and added some tiny gold stars punched with the Sprinkles Punch out of Gold Glimmer Cardstock.

The last card is cased from Andrea Walford who has done an excellent You Tube Video to demonstrate a technique for using Watercolour Paper and an Aquapainter or a Paintbrush.
This was the card that sold me the stamp set. It is a very useful set for quick and easy cards in an combination of colours.

Eastern Palace Suite

I recently ordered the Starter Bundle of the Eastern Palace Suite but soon decided that I needed the Framelits as well. I absolutely love this bundle now. There are so many different ways that you can combine the dies, stamps, papers and stickers..

In the above card I used one of the larger Framelits on Very Vanilla Cardstock before stamping to decorate it. I used Old Olive and Fresh Fig Cardstock.

The third ard was cased from Dawn Griffiths from a You Tube Video.
Gold Cardstock goes very well under the Tranquil Tide Medallion.

The last card was also cased from You  Tube. I used a Stitched Square Framelit as a backing for the sentiment. I love the sentiments in this stamp set as they can be used for many different occasions.
