happy Birthday

Last week at one of my classes we made this Birthday card using the Patio Party dsp. I got the idea for this card from Katrina Criglington here. I didn't have the same cake stamp as her so changed to what I had.
I like this dsp as the paper has so much detail on it that you really don't have to add much to it to have a quick birthday card.
Stamps:Bring on the Cake, Itty Bitty Borders
Paper:Midnight Muse,Summer Starfruit,Raspberry ripple, Patio Party dsp, white
Ink:More Mustard,Baja Breeze,Midnight Muse,Primrose petals
Accessories: Lattice embossing folder,Stampin write markers,Itty Bitty Framelits,

Secret Santa gift

Two weeks ago at our team meeting we did Secret Santa. This is the gift that I made for my recipient. Its a box made from the Top Note diez filled with Christmas tags.
I made the tags using the Tags die and used the Ornament Keepsake stamp set and framelits to decorate. Had seen this idea before whilst blog surfing.

Polished Stone Christmas card

Last night we had our team meeting in Christchurch. Lots of new faces. We also did secret santa, swaps were WOW'ed and did a make n take. I demonstrated this card for the make n take using the Polished stone technique. No two cards had the same background but they all looked great.
i used Paltinum shimmer paint mainly because I didn't have any Champagne shimmer paint at the time I designed this card. But it still looked ok.

Ink:Gumbell green, stazOn Black,Cherry Cobbler, River rock
