A Midsummer Night’s Dream …

The theme for this week’s challenge on the Make My Monday challenge blog is

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

How could I resist? I got out my stamp sets and brayer from Stampin’ Up to make this card…

I haven’t used my brayer for a little while, so it was fun to give it an airing once more. The glossy white cardstock from Stampin’ Up makes it easy to get a great result with the brayer. I also added a little sponging around the edges with my sponge daubers.

I mixed dazzling diamonds with some crystal effects and applied in dotted lines to add some sparkle and glitter to this dreamlike card, and then mounted it onto a bashful blue card base.

I hope it’s what the ladies were looking for from the challenge – it was fun to do anyway!

Charming crumb cake thank you…

I loved playing with the Charming stamp set to make lots of different examples for my inspiration station at Michelle’s training craft event last month.  It is such a versatile stamp set  …

I made this really clean and simple thank you card with a simple row of stamping, some faux stitching and a piece of gorgeous grosgrain ribbon from Stampin Up.  My stamp-a-majig really helped to stamp the images perfectly – I don’t know what I’d do without it!   

All supplies from Stampin’ Up!

Card recipe: stamps:  charming, just believe; cardstock: very vanilla, crumb cake; inks: early espresso; accessories: small heart punch, rhinestone jewel, white gel pen, 1 1/4” black striped grosgrain ribbon, stamp-a-majig.
