Not another one!

So rather than making my personal ramblings on my current blog public for all to see, I decided instead to keep a second blog with far more interesting content. In this blog, I want to share my love of stamping and the things I make when I get a few moments peace. If I can figure out what on earth I'm doing, I'll link it via my other blog. I think I got my Stampin' Up! website link working but I still need to figure out a way to make it stand out. For anyone searching, it's the itty bitty link on the top left ;-)

On to the reason for setting this up - my latest creations. As I do this I will try to give some info on the materials used but feel free to ask about anything that I post.

These cards were made yesterday and I am finally getting into the habit of making multiples instead of one at a time.

This card used the SU! Pocket Silhouettes set.

Cardstock - Whisper White, Basic Grey, Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy and Kiwi Kiss (all SU!)

Patterned paper - Urban garden (kiwi kiss is the main color - SU!)

Image was stamped in Not Quite Navy (stamping off used for the lighter silhouettes).

Ribbon is Basic Grey Taffeta (SU!)

Sentiment was also stamped in Not Quite Navy and is from the Pocket Silhouettes set also.

This was my first "play" with the Ocean Commotion set (SU!).

Carstock - Sahara Sand, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Whisper White

The curved Baja Breeze frame was made using a mega-nestie die and I made spots around the edge with a white gel pen.

The seaweed was stamped in Kiwi Kiss and highlighted with some dazzling diamonds glitter. The sentiment (from On your birthday) was also stamped in kiwi kiss. The fish was stamped in Tangerine Tango and the shells in Baja Breeze. The first seahorse was stamped onto white cardstock in Taken with Teal, cut out and mounted with a SU! dimesional. The second was stamped onto Taken with Teal cardstock using white craft ink and then cut/mounted in the same way. The ribbon isn't SU! and is the closest match I could get to the teal.

I really love this set and can think of so many possibilities, perhaps not involving cutting the seahorse out this time (what was I thinking doing it twice ??).

That's it for now. I'm hoping to get some more play time at the weekend.
