Shhhhhh….Don’t tell Aaron! Global Design Project #023

This year my eldest son turns….21!

Wow! a major milestone for him…..and my husband and I survived!

One down and 3 to go!

I’m still trying to sort invitations and venues….then Global Design Project said this weeks challenge was…..

GDP023

Now Aaron is an outdoor sort of boy, he’s been a Scout and now is a Leader, is a member of RFS- Rural Fire Service and is a diesel mechanic….

what great opportunity to make him a card.

I wanted to do something that had a masculine feel to it.

A CRATE…..with an EXPLOSION of BALLOONS coming out of it…

Had never done a Card in a Box before, this will be interesting!

I stamped my box and extra card stock with the Hardwood stamp and then cut it up to create the reinforced sides of the crate.

The balloons was stamped with Balloon Celebration and highlighted with Wink of Stella- Clear.

The large numbers cut from Glimmer Paper makes them pop out from amongst the balloons.

The Instructions for the box I used the You Tube clip by Tanya Bell.

Best Thoughts

I’m finding that this is becoming one of my favorite Stampin’ Up! Stamp Sets.
Here I have stamped on water colour paper with black Stazon Ink and water coloured the flower with Ink pads and blender pen. I have used a combination of colours in the flower petals and leaves and to give it a little more depth I have lightly coloured around the flower.
I didn’t want this to be a card so it has been mounted in a frame and finished with lace and linen thread.
This stamp set is a Hostess Set that you can earn when you have a Workshop and sales over $250.00. So book a workshop today and you could also have this beautiful Stamp to play with
Keep on Stampin’

Mothers Day

I’m a bit late with this..but I would like to share with you what we did in our Mother’s Day Class last Friday night.
This idea was CASed from Jo Hooper, when she posted this on Facebook I loved it. This would make a nice gift, for Birthday’s,Engagements, Weddings, or just a nice Thank You Gift.
Wasn’t sure on how but after a bit of research, found out. It looks so hard but it is so simple. If you want to know more contact me and book in a class.
