Here's a quick selection of Chrissie cards that I've been making....still need some more, but I'm not sure that will happen, we'll see!
Anyway these first two cards are based on the Stamp with Us sketch challenge & use the Holiday Line up stamp set and the ski slope dsp (now retired, but great while it lasted!)
This next card is CASED from Sam Post here. She has some fabulous cards and photo tips too! And finally a simple, quick card made using an embossing folder, SU! real red & sahara sand cardstock & the funky red polka dot ribbon out now(!) in the current Summer mini catalogue. Have a fun weekend!

Stamps: Big bold birthday ink: purely pomegranate, cameo coral card/paper: cameo coral, purely pomegranate, raspberry tart dsp other: rose red ribbon, clear rhinestones, silver brads.
I recently made a tri fold card too (they are all the rage at the mo!), for my cousin in the UK & used the raspberry tart dsp and other similar colours to above. I like these cards 'cos they're so simple but look a little tricky. I'd better get on to posting it now (as in sending it in the mail before I get so involved with planning and making the card that I don't actually get around to sending it!...sound familiar to anyone?!!)
Anyway must go, I'm off to walk the dogs before it gets too dark!

Looking at it again, I would now choose SU! pink passion & real red BUT when I made my card yesterday I was inspired to use regal rose, rose red & sage shadow. If I get time (unlikely!) I will try & make another using the brighter pink & red.....meanwhile, here's what I came up with:
Stamps: embrace life, polka dot background Card & Ink: regal rose, rose red, sage shadow, black stazon Other: regal rose grosgrain, silver hodgepodge hardware, scallop punch, rose red dsp, nestabilities dies (non SU!)
Here's a close up of the layering on the flower (or rather, an excuse to try out the macro function on my new camera!!)
Why not pop over to Stamp with Us & join in?
Bye for now from a cold, blustery Perth!

In fact it's good to get rain, especially as we know it won't be long before the sun's shining again.
Anyway, enough of the weather report and on to a card I have made for the Stamp with Us weekly challenge and for friends who are about to celebrate their first wedding anniversary.
Here is my card: Stamps: SU! Cheer & wishes, Always ink: baja breeze, night of navy card: whisper white, urban garden dsp other: ribbon originals valet pg 150 of the Aus catalogue, eyelet border punch, pretties kit - rhinestone brad, non SU! polka dot cuttlebug embossing folder.
Thanks for looking..I'm off to make a nice hot cuppa!
Sunday, June 7, 2009
Stamps: Petal pizazz, polka dot background and on your birthday Other: earth elements brads, celery 5/8" grosgrain, silver hodgepodge brad, corner rounder punch, polka dot embossing folder (non SU!)
And this is the same layout but using the sweet slumber dsp colours of ruby red, so saffron and bali breeze. The ribbon is from the dress up ribbon originals on page 150 of the catalogue - it's actually riding hood red, but is a good match for the ruby red here. The card base is sahara sand.
Well, I hope you are enjoying your Sunday,

The colours for the card & ink are pretty in pink, so saffron and rose red. The sentiment is a computer font.
