Still having fun

My mate Tracy is going to be the guinea pig for my first SU party so I'm busy making up some samples.

This is using Barely Banana card with the Garden Whimsy stamp set. The butterfly has been stamped twice and mounted with some silicon glue for depth. Pic doesnt show it but I succombed to Tracys request for sparkles and added some gems & glitter to it.

This is a small box that is held together with 2 buttons and should be some gold elastic cord. I've had elastic cord on the desk for months.. until today when I wanted it!! Butterfly from Garden Whimsy stamped with versamark and embossed with gold ep on Sage Shadow cs.

This isnt a card, it's an exploding tag book. Apricot Appeal cs with the poppy from Beautiful Blooms. I used various pale reds and orange copics to colour. If I remember I'll try and photo the inside on Mon.

These are using my favourite swirl from Baroque Motifs, the first is just stamped in classic black then cut into 3 panels and mounted. Ribbon from stash and I used a corner rounder and the making memories ribbon slot punch to create the panel for the sentiment.

Orchid opulence ink, and a sentiment from Cheer & Wishes, a few gems and some organza ribbon from stash.

A couple of quick paperclip bookmarks using 2 other stamps from the Baroque Motifs set. Bashful blue, pretty in pink and apricot appeal.

I've not long had All In The Family stamp set and have fallen in love with these little stick figures.
The first is a bag made from a 6" envie and decorated with the spot on wheel using pretty in pink ink. I thought this would make a fantastic party bag that with a bit of help most children would enjoy making.

Carrying on with the party theme this is a co-ordinating invite. Same stamps, pretty in pink cs stamped with versamark. The invitation banner (Cheers & Wishes set) is attached with some jump rings.
I've already started on a cake slice box but it's still on the table to be finished.
Well that's it for tonight, I've got to be up early in the morning. I'm off to Newbury for a colouring in class or for those who'd understand it, a lesson in how to use copic pens ;o)
