Social Stamping – Baby!

The theme for this month’s Social Stamping Blog Hop is ‘Baby’.   It’s a perfect theme for Spring – with baby animals in the paddocks, pretty seasonal flowers or perhaps even in a new family member!

For me, it’s a new family member……exciting aye?

This is Khalil, who arrived at the end of June.  He is my nieces son.  My Brothers Grandson.

I also have a friend who is expecting a little girl shortly, so I have made 2 versions of my card….

As you can see…..it’s a bit tongue in cheek – funny. I did stamp a Congratulations sentiments inside the cards. So what do you think – can I get away with them??

Here is my brother, Lloyd and his daughter, Gabrielle with Khalil, shortly after he was born.

As you can see, my brother is the coolest Unky and Grandpa, so I made him a card too.

Social Stamping – Animals

Image may contain: textI’m playing along with Kelly’s Social Stamping Blog Host – the theme is Animals.

To start with I was thinking, I wonder why Kelly decided on this theme.  And the more I thought about it, the more I realised that our animals (pets) have been our constant companions during the lock down / isolation period.

In our house, we have 2 animal companions.  They are Honey and Silver…….Can you tell which is which?

They are good friends.IMG_2030

When I say they are our constant companions – one of them follows me round everywhere.  She sits with me when I work, she sits with me when I craft, tries to sit with me when I’m cooking, having a shower or even going to the loo!!  In fact she sits so close to me I can barely move my chair!IMG_1218

I wonder how they are going to go (Honey in particular) when I go back to work?

Today, while Honey and I were crafting, we made a couple of Animal cards.
For the first one, I used the first Stampin Up Stamp Set, that I ever brought.
Wild About You.  Although I don’t used this Stamp Set much any more, I still love it!

During the week I received this lovely Shaker card. IMG_1193
I really loved it and so decided to make my own Shaker Card.

The Flamingo stamp set is called Fabulous Flamingo – another retired but loved stamp set. IMG_1226

Today’s cards have been full of colour and fun.   I’m looking forward to getting them in the post to someone on Monday.

Meanwhile, I will be going to look at the other Social Stamping Blogs.   To go to the next Blog you can click the Next button below., which will take you to Narelle Simm’s  Blog.  You can also check out all the Blogs here.

Just Add Ink # 365 – Sketch Challenge

This weeks Just Add Ink Challenge is a sketch.  These are great because there are so many possibilities.  I made 2 cards this week for the Challenge.  Here is the sketch…..No automatic alt text available.

Here is my first card.

I used the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set, which is one of my new ones.  I really like it too.  The sentiment comes from a stamp set called Thoughtful Banners – its a sweet little set of words.  I used some of the silver thread, silver foil card and little pink rhinestones to add a bit of bling.

And the second card I made is a fun Everyday Hero card:

I just love this stamp set too.  Its cheeky and fun!!

JAI # 157 – Just Add Green

It’s nearly the 17th March and that means St Patrick’s Day.  So we are celebrating by Just Adding Green.  I put together a quick Birthday card using Green Card Stock, DSP and InDSC00100
I used the leaves comes from the Summer Silhouettes Stamp Set – which is very versatile and pretty.  The sentiment is the Pretty Petites Stamp Set and Petite Curly Label Punch from Sale-a-brations – so cute.

So if you are keen to Just Add Green – visit Just Add Ink and see what the Design Team has put together.

Also – while I am here, I wanted to show you a little card Sarah (6) made for her cousin last weekend.  Sarah did all the stamping and colour herself (no stamp-a-ma-jig required).  I think she did pretty well.  This is her favourite Stamp set.
Also – you might notice what looks like and ‘S’ in the top right hand corner – but Sarah tells me that’s a ‘2’ – because her cousin was turning 2.

JAI # 129 – Sketch Challenge

 

I’ve had a very quite time in the craft room lately – not much happening at all – there’s been holidays, sickness and just the need to have a little rest.  But I’ve been back in the craft room this week – pottering around.

I have put together a little card for the Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge this week.  Firstly – let me show you the Sketch.

I decided to flip the Sketch over and approach it from a different perspective……

This was fun and colourful to put together.  I’ve used the All in the Family and Just Beachy Stamp Sets. 

This Sketch has inspired the Design team in many many ways – visit Just Add Ink to see the variety of idea and things you can do with one Sketch.  And then have a go yourself and share it with us.

Just Add Ink # 105 – Colour Combo

 It’s Colour Combo time.  Here are the colours, they are really beautiful………

To me – I thought these colours were quite girly and pretty.   However, I decided to use them on a boys card.   

I just loved playing with this Stamp Set – it’s called Dinoroar.  They are so cute and can be used for both Boys and Girls.
 
The Design Team have put together some beautiful projects using these Colours – go to Just Add Ink and check them out.
