Four leaf clover for luck …

When I needed a good luck card for one of my male friends, I turned to some beautiful designer series papers from Stampin’ Up! for inspiration.

The fabulous Tea for Two dsp available in the spring/summer catalogue has some great feminine patterns, but there are also some more neutral patterns on the reverse side too – ideal for masculine cards.

I love this pattern in lucky limeade …

I used the small heart punch to make a four leaf clover and added a mini brad in old olive for the centre, then popped it up on stampin’ dimensionals on a punched out scalloped cirle.

I think the 3 different shades of green work really well together.

Owls, farewells and party this way …

My friend and colleague has taken a year out to do some volunteer work in the Sudan. It’s something she’s always wanted to do, and she is so brave to follow her dream.

We are happy for her but will miss her while she’s gone, so I used my owl punch and party this way stamp set from Stampin Up to make a good luck card for her send off…

I gave each owl different coloured eyes – the brown eyes (chocolate chip) look huge! – and gave each owl different wings, positioning the wings to make it look like were waving goodbye. I think she liked it!

I love the party this way stamp set, it is so versatile, and I have used it so much on a variety of cards. All I need now is a punch to punch out those bunting flags that I have to cut out by hand at the moment!

I used bashful blue for the sky and some designer series paper to represent the grassed area. I then had loads of fun mixing up bright colours – tempting turquoise, melon mambo, pumpkin pie and green galore (retired) – to make the card really cheerful.
