Happy Birthday

A quick post today with the card I made for DH birthday which is today. I used the Loads of Love stamp set which I adore and if I could have a truck it would be this colour with spots. lol

I made a shutter card and decorated with DSP spiced cider, I really like these warm colours and they are great for men, crystal effects was used on the window and hub caps, I stamped parcels onto DSP for the back of the truck and stamped the truck onto spotted paper from the set firstly stamping the truck onto Pumpkin Pie Textured Card I have paper pierced around all the panels of DSP- sorry about picture quality the light is so poor today with grey skies, I just cannot get a bettershot have tried everything!!

January Birthdays-Field of Butterflies

Hello everyone hope you are all well and coping with the snow and cold. We can get about now in the village and out to the main road, so stocked up with food and also managed to get to my Daughters on Saturday as it was her birthday on the 8th. She starts the birthday run we have in our family for January, DH is on the 12th, mine a few days later, our grandson is 5 on the 21st we have a short break then until our sons on the 11th February - I know I can here you all saying you didn't plan that very well!!!! So you can guess what I am making over the next week.

Here is the card I made for DD - a field of butterflies. I took inspiration from the colour challenge over on SWU I can post it now as she has taken delivery!!

I stamped the "field" using Pocket Silhouettes using So Saffron, Always artichoke and Bravo Burgundy. The butterflies from the set Flight of the Butterfly and punched these out with the new butterfly punch these two items work so well together and the combination of butterflies you can make is endless just by changing the colour of ink, stamping them onto card with different colours etc. so much choice which makes the Stamp Set and Punch a very versatile combination. I now have butterflies everywhere as I couldn't stop making them - watch this space I am sure more will appear shortly.

Recipe - all Stampin' Up!
Stamps Flight of the Butterfly, Pocket Silhouettes
Card Whisper White, So Saffron, Bravo Burgundy,
Inks So Saffron, Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy
Accessories Ribbon Always Artichoke Scalloped Border Bunch, Butterfly Punch

That's all for now will be back in a few days with more
