Mad May

Sorry I know, I know have been missing in action. I have been doing heaps of stamping though just haven't got around to blogging about it. Have found myself super tired in this last month of pregnancy and when I would normally be creative at night am tucked up in bed instead! Good news though this baby is coming out on Monday! Can't wait am super excited but nervous all the same.

May is a nutso month for us with heaps of birthdays and mothers day. Here are a couple of cards I have made recently. The first one was for a little friend's 6th birthday and I used the colour combo from Curtain Call 27 over on Stacey's Stamping Stage. I am super late to link to the challenge but still.

I have been using my new big shot and the Top Note die like a woman possessed and now I have all these "frames" left over which I thought was a shame to just toss out. I think this frames a picture nicely although there is probably a bit too much white in this one for my liking. I also wanted to highlight the set "A Little Treat" and how it can be used without the sweet treat cups as well. I also cased the star from the amazing Teneale Williams. Here is what I have used:

Stamps: A Little Treat, Stem Sayings

Paper: Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette

Ink: Melon Mambo

Accessories: Big Shot, Top Note Die, Large Star Punch, 1" Circle Punch, 1 3/8 " Circle Punch, Sizzix Stencil Alphabet Sizzlits, Dimensionals

The next card was for our big girl (Alex is really our niece but came to live with us at the tender age of 2 when her mum passed away) who turned 17 on the 1st May! I used the same colour combo and the Just Add Ink #15 challenge.

I once again used the amazing Teneale for inspiration for the bow. She has an awesome video tutorial on her blog to show you how to do these. I didn't have any string handy though so mine is a little bulky but not bad for a first go. Here is what I used:

Stamps: Good Friend, Picture This (new hostess level I set)

Paper: Certainly Celery, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Melon Mambo

Ink: Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Soft Suede

Accessories: SAMJ, Silver brad, Certainly Celery Ribbon, Dimensionals

Well thanks for dropping by - can't promise another post real soon have heaps to do before bubs arrival and I guess it depends on how well behaved it is as to how much blogging I get to do! Happy mothers day if I don't post before hand.
