Memorable moments with a Venetian romance …

I was asked to make a card for a very special lady who turned 75 this week. I made this elegant card using memorable moments by Stampin’ Up, and the gorgeous Venetian romance designer series paper …

The sentiment and numbers were stamped using the memorable moments stamp set.  With all the numbers you’ll ever need in the set, it’s easy to make a card for any age you wish…

And I just love the venetian romance designer series paper, with its pretty, soft and subtle colours, so couldn’t resist using a length of this very pretty pattern in crisp cantaloupe for the card.  Two strips of matching crisp cantaloupe cardstock, one edged with the scallop edge punch, made a pretty borders…

Flowers from pansy parade were stamped in black stazon ink onto whisper white cardstock, punched out with the matching punch, and adhered to the card with stampin’ dimensionals.

I added some adhesive rhinestones to the flower centres for a little bit of bling, and balanced this with rhinestones in the top right corner too. 

Some of these items will be retiring at the end of this month, so do make sure you get hold of yours in time.

Stampin’ Up Gingham Garden thank yous …

Do you buy designer series paper, only to sit looking at it, perhaps stroking it a bit, but never cutting into it? 

I too have been guilty of doing just that in the past.  But these days, I make a real effort to actually use my papers, to cut into them, and to make them into cards and gifts to give to my friends and family. 

Designer series paper from Stampin’ Up, gives that added touch of luxury to any card or project you make, with their gorgeous designs, and top quality, you are bound to be pleased with the results. 

What I don’t like to do is waste any of it – after all, it is precious and much loved, so I can’t bear to throw any of it away. 

When I’d finished making and creating my Gingham Garden mini album, I did have a few scraps of the paper left over… far too nice to waste – they needed to be used. 

So, with a little stamping here, a little punching there, before long I had some pretty little thank you cards, and no wasting of my much loved designer series paper!

Of course, the punches from Stampin’ Up made the cards so easy and quick to do – I couldn’t be without them – they have revolutionised my crafting and card making…

Gingham thank you
