Cards from Becs!!!!

I've been meaning to post these cards up all week... but unfortunately TIME slipped away from me... so while I've just finished typing a MARATHON post about our Seasons of Joy Night, I thought I'd catch up on everything else I wanted to show you all. Gosh I hope you've got your cuppa with you!!!

Here are a couple of the cards we made at Bec's workshop last Friday Night.
The first two cards are the same layout just in different colours..... one for a girl and one for a boy.
Firstly... I used Pumpkin Pie as the base which I stamped with the 'Bubbles' (I think they're bubbles!!! hahaha) from the Big Bold Birthday stamp set in Pumpkin Pie. Then I used some Confetti White Card which I pierced around the edge using my piercing mat and needle then added a strip of Blue Bayou which had been stamped with the 'Circles' from the Big Bold Birthday set in Blue Bayou Ink and then tied some Blue Bayou Double Stitched Ribbon around it before popping it all up on some Dimensionals and stuck to the Pumpkin Pie. The cupcake again from Big Bold Birthday is stamped using Pumpkin Pie for the base and Real Red for the top, add a little candle and it's all done.

Here is the same card in different colours...

I've used Mellow Moss as the base and Pretty in Pink for the strip. The cupcake is stamped using Mellow Moss and Close to Cocoa. Oh and of course some Pretty in Pink Grosgrain.

Next card is a Baby Card.... again we made this card in two colours, but you've already seen the BOY version on a previous post here, so I'll just show you the GIRL one!!!

I've used the Wild About You Stamp set and the sentiment is from the So Many Sayings (Hostess Level 1) Set. The base is Very Vanilla and I've used Regal Rose as the bottom layer, some Mellow Moss which I stamped using the Boho Background set, then the Giraffe is stamped in Pretty in Pink onto Very Vanilla Card and layered on Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose... oh and we mustn't forget the gorgeous little bird which I stamped in Regal Rose. This part was stuck down using dimensionals. The ribbon is Pretty in Pink Grosgrain and the sentiment is layered in the same way as the Giraffe.

And the last card.... Bec asked me to include a Wedding Card, sooo, here is what I came up with.

I've used Very Vanilla Cardstock as the base and stamped the flower background in Black Ink from the Boho Background Stamp Set, on the bottom half of the card.
Then I used the hearts from Forever in My Heart and stamped them in Basic Black onto some Very Vanilla and of course added some BLING to the edges of the top heart using my two-way glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds. The Heart is layered onto some Black and Basic Grey Cardstock and added to the card using dimensionals. Oh I almost forgot.... a splash of some Black Ribbon and all done....
