Getting in front …

I’ve been trying to get in front with my cardmaking at the moment so that I have the card made BEFORE the occasion instead of on the day of … or the day after! LOL! So here are a couple of the cards I’ve been making …..

This one uses Ruby Red, Night of Navy and the Lots of Bots set from the Autumn/Winter Mini catalogue. I needed a boy birthday card so I thought you can’t really go wrong with Robots! This one will also be part of the Stamp-a-Stack on Sunday afternoon (email me ASAP if you’d like to come along)

And this card uses the gorgeous A Rose is a Rose stampset. I’ve stamped with Mellow Moss and Cameo Coral using various impressions of ink – stamped off up to 3 times for some images. Of course I used my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig (SAMJ) to do the 2-step stamping  …. gosh that tool makes it so easy! I used Mellow Moss cardstock for the base card, but I thought the Cameo Coral cardstock as a mat behind the stamped images looked too bright for the subtle floral look I was going for so I chose Blush Blossom instead and it matches in quite well with the lighter impressions of Cameo Coral. The greeting comes from the Occasional Greetings stamp set and I used my markers to achieve a multicoloured image.

Stay tuned in the next few days for another fabulous special using one of the sets I’ve used here …. which one do you think it will be?!! Take care, K 🙂
