Everything Eleanor with a Blackberry Twist

Everything Eleanor a beautiful name with a gorgeous colour and Pink Pirouette compliments this colour.  I think it makes the card look luscious, Rich and Elegant.


 I made this card especially  for the Just had Ink Challenge I hope that I am not too Late?


I Stamped the Vellum with Black Tuxedo Ink and Coloured my Florets with Rich Razzleberry  Blendabilities.  I really love our new Alcohol Markers. They blend together so beautifully. 


Each set comes as a set of 3 in the light, medium and dark shades of the colour.  They are so rich and beautiful and blend so easily it makes colouring very pleasurable.

This card I used the Stamp Sets: Everything Eleanor
                                                  Kinda Electic
Blendabilities                              Rich Razzleberry, Daffodill Delight
Alcohol Ink Pad                         Tuxedo Black
Card Stock                                Pink Pirouette, and Blackberry Bliss
                                                  Also Vellum and Rhinestone Basic Jewels
Big Shot and Folder                   Decorative Dots.

Happy Catalogue Launch Day 5th July

So excited my very first Catalogue Launch Day in the six years I have been in Stampin Up as a Demonstrator.  I have some beautiful ladies coming lots of surprises and a lovely afternoon tea ready.  Been working all week on there little take home bags and have a lucky door prize.  Which is Five New In Colour trendy cards for all occasions with stamped envelopes as well in a lovely Envelope Case made by my Envelope maker.
I am just taking a little gamble not doing this before is a little scary,  I am afraid the stress and anxiety just seems to take over.
But I have decided to do it and my desire to accomplish this is nigh.


There will be list of classes that my girls may like to book for but awaiting our Christmas Catalogue first to be able to put the Christmas Classes together.
But I think lots of chatter and looking at the new Catalogue will create some fun.


Lots of love
 Thank you 
Carolyn

Four Way Gateway Fold Card

This week I have been busy getting ready for my class I give every third Friday of the month.  It is my happy class.  I love this class so much this is a community of people (friends) that my beautiful daughter lived with before she passed away last year.  We have many hours of fun making our card of the month.  Each month I keep in mind if there is a special occasion coming up that they may need a card for and we adapt our card to suit each ones needs.




I used three stamp sets on this card. "Flower Shop,"  "Petite Petals" and last but not least "Papillon Potpouri" This is the Grey/Blue Gateway Fold card.  It was a lot easier to choose 1 stamp from each set and stamp multiples of three of each design to make card.  Then the exciting part of punch each flower and butterfly out ready to attach to our card

In the middle of the last section of the card I added a complimentary colour to the print of the DSP and then placed a smaller oval in the centre of the large oval to stamp our sentiment on.



This card which was made in pink and white I used a different stamp type for almost all the folds but if you look carefully you can see that I have reversed the folds  and it still looks very pretty.  I then placed a plain white sheet of paper framed by the lovely blue or pink card stock  on back.   On the top left hand corner  I stamped a petite flower and on the bottom right hand corner I stamped a butterfly.
Our sentiments are written on the back of the card.
Then after all the finishing touches of bling in the centre of flowers and butterflies, our beautiful cards were ready to post on to somebody special.
Have a wonderful week end.
Hope you enjoyed my little ray of sunshine.
love Carolyn
