Michael Powell Beach Huts Retirement Card

Here is a Michael Powell design of Beach Huts which I used for a recent retirement card.

The stamped image was coloured in with Promarkers to match the DCWV background striped paper.  I then mounted this onto DCWV textured card stock.  I stamped a LOTV sentiment and added this onto a scalloped circle punched out of some more textured card stock.

I think it worked quite well and the recipient was very happy.  Even more so as the boat has the same name as his beloved puppy, Molly.

Stampin Up Fresh Vintage Cards

Here are a couple of cards I made using the Stampin Up Fresh Vintage stamp set.  This is a fab set, that unfortunately was one of the Saleabration sets so no longer available, apart from on ebay.  I used it with the Everyday Enchantment papers, also no longer available - sorry.  The colours used were Rose Red and Baja Breeze, which are still available.  A snippet of Rose Red seam binding tied on the cards finishes the design off.

I was really quite proud of these first few attempts with my Stampin Up Fresh Vintage set of stamps.  This idea came from someone who I follow on my blog, but I can't remember who, so apologies in advance.  I have now placed a huge order and am part of a Virtual Hostess Club (with so I am sure I will be posting more cards as I make them.

Bunny Baby Birth Cards

Here are three cards similar to yesterday's post only this time using a cute little bunny.  Again I have had this stamp for absolutely ages and I think it even came free with a magazine.

The background papers are Nana's DCWV ones and the sentiments are LOTV.

These three and yesterday's three were pretty quick to do so in two evenings I managed to make all six.  Good going for me!

Baby Birth Sheepy Cards

 Here are a selection of sheepy baby birth cards that I made for work.  I tried to keep them very simple as they were given to staff members who had a baby.

I think it all worked ok, I will list tomorrow the bunny versions that I also made.

The stamp is an old Wild Rose Studio one, I think it was one of the first stamps I ever bought and is an old reliable one that I pick up quite often.  The papers are all DCWV and mainly from the Nana's sets.  The sentiments are from LOTV.
