đź’—Butterflies & Balloonsđź’—

Hi all,

I just wanted to come and do a quick show and tell of a couple of cards that I have made this weekend. 
It was my nephew and his two cousins Christening today and obviously me being me wanted to make their cards. I wasn't keen on making traditional cards because 1) I didn't have any stamps to work with. (note to self, order Christening stamps for future use! ha ha) and 2) I wanted to be creative and think outside of the box. 

So here is what I came up with...

The first one I made for my nephew. I embossed his name in Silver which really popped against the blue and white background.

These were the cards I made for my nephews cousins; two beautiful little sisters. Again the names have been embossed with silver to pop against the background colours. I absolutely loved making these cards. Due to be surrounded by boys day in day out. When a girlie card comes around, I get soo excited....yipee! I finally get to do something pink and sparkly!

All three cards were made using the same measurements of card stock and the two colour tone look I wanted. The inking that was done around the edges also matched the colour tone that I was working with.

That is one of the amazing things about Stampin Up. If you want to make a project using the same colour tone. Stampin Up make it so easy to do. Their card stock match their ink pads, which will match up to a ribbon etc. So easy.

 I am so pleased with how all three came out. Like always I will list all measurements and product codes down below. Plus the link so you can come and shop with me; to get yourself some goodies to play with too.

Thank you again for coming to read my blog today and I will see you very soon with some more inspiration.

Take care & always sparkle
