Stamp set: Occasional Greetings
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla
Ink: Old Olive
Accessories: Flower Fusion felt flowers, Rhinestone brads, Very Vanilla Taffeta ribbon, Word Window punch and Haiku DSP
I really like how this card turned out and the matching envelope. This was very easy to make so I may end up making more cards this size (6.5" x 3.25").
Hope you like it.

The lovely Di first showed me a square version of the easel card and I love it but wanted to make it to fit our standard envelopes. The tutorial for the square easel card can be found on split coast stampers. This is very easy to make with minimal stamping. Here is another one using greens:Supplies:
Stamp set: Fifth Avenue and Vintage Labels (sale-a-bration set)
Accessories: eleyet border punch, small and large oval punches, ribbon, Designer Series Paper (DSP) of your choice to match cardstock you choose and ink to match also.
Check out the tuturial and have a go at making your own easel card.
Stamp set: Something Sweet (summer mini catalogue)
Cardstock: Barely Banana, Choc Chip, Rose Red and Whisper White
Ink: Choc Chip and Rose Red
Accessories: 1 3/4", 1 1/4", round tab, small and wide oval, scallop edge punches, brads, dimensionals, sweet treat cup, paper piercing tool and mat and of course some yummy treats to put inside the cup for the recipient to enjoy.
You can see that I have put a tag with a tab behind the treats so that the person recieving the card doesn't have to tear it open to get to the goodness.
You probably don't remember who I am. I'm the person who hasn't posted in about 9 months - ooops. You may have noticed I have been playing with my blog layout and stuff to make it look a little more inviting. I did this with the help of The cutest blog on the block website. It was a lot easier than I thought although I did need to ask my good friend Di to give me a quick hand at one point because I had confused myself. Anyway not sure if I will leave as is or do some more changing, we'll see.
You'll notice I called this post 'change is in the air'. Well I'm hoping to post a lot more on here this year. Can't promise anything but I will try my best to update my blog more often. Hopefully I will be back later today with something to show you.
Have a lovely day,

Cardstock: Tangerine Tango, Summer Sun, Whisper White
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Summer Sun and Tangerine Tango
Accessories: Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon (very nice ribbon)
The colours of this card were inspired from a card I saw on Sarah Klass' blog. I very rarely use summer sun but I really like this colour combination. This card is also really easy to make. To line up each image I got the ladies to line the top of the stamp with the top of the white cardstock and I stamped the image in the centre first. All the ladies cards were lined up perfectly. This card looks great using all four images from this stamp set.

Stamp set: Upsy Daisy
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Close to Cocoa and Whisper White
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Close to Cocoa and Sahara Sand Marker
This is such a simple card. The only thing that took a little time was using the marker to give a bit of a shadow effect on the left of the image. This picture doesn't really show this well but it is there.
The second card we made is this one:Stamp Sets: Upsy Daisy and On Your Birthday
Cardstock: Pink Pirouette and Very Vanilla
Ink: Pink Pirouette and Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Candy Lane Paper and Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon (which I love)
I really like this card and so did the ladies. Again this card was really easy to make as well. To make tying the ribbon easier I got the ladies to firstly attach the lenght of ribbon at each side on the back and then cut a smaller piece of ribbon to slide underneath and tie it in a knot. All the ladies did really well with all the cards we made and I hope they had fun making them.I will show you the other card we made tomorrow.
