Hello!  I hope you’re having a great day.

Today I wanted to show you a card I’ve made with one of my favourite stamp sets from the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue – Simply Sketched.   This is a hostess set so you can only get it by hosting a workshop or party (or doing a REALLY big order all by yourself!) I’d like to get back into doing a few workshops, so please let me know if you live in the Wollongong or southern Sydney area and would be interesting in hanging out with your friends and making cards 🙂

Here’s the card I made:

IMAG0187I used Crumb Cake as the base card with matching seam binding ribbon.   The bird is coloured with my Stampin’ Write markers.  The blue layer is from a pack of corrugated cardboard I bought at a $2 shop but I think this card would also work beautifully with some of the new Soft Sky card stock from Stampin’ Up!  The watercolour paper is cut out with a Labels Collection framelit.

Here are another couple I made:

Simply Sketched bird

IMAG0163See the ribbon on the last card?  You know those ribbons that are sewed into shirts to keep them onto coat hangers?  Those ribbons which, if you’re anything like me, you cut off before you wear them for the first time?  Well, this ribbon came off a tshirt I bought recently.   So don’t throw them away – see what you can make out of them!

Thanks for reading
