Tri Fold Card

Being a lovely Saturday afternoon, and having a clean desk, really puts me in a creative mood. So I thought I'd try making a tri fold card. I also wanted to use a set that was in the Oct-Jan mini but has made it into the new 07/08 catalogue along with the matching punch. I'm really pleased with how it turned out and I think I'm going to be making a few more of these :-)

So I now have a messy desk again and my creative urge has been satisfied.

Materials used are all Stampin' Up!® and available through me.

Stamp Set - Looks Like Spring
Inks - Bravo Burgundy and Mellow Moss
Cardstock - Kraft, Bravo Burgundy, Very Vanilla
Other - Spring Bouquet Punch, Burgundy Grosgrain.

March 2007 Cyberstamp

I love cyberstamps, it get's me right out of my comfort zone and doing this completely different. This months cyberstamp was hosted by Ailsa Tilsner and boy did she make us think.

The first challenge was a colour combo challenge, because I only had limited colours for the challenge I went with very simple. But I like it.

The second challenge was to pick a sample picture from the 2006/2007 IB&C and CASE it. My inspiration came from the second pic on page 60. And I actually love how this card turned out.

The third was a sketch challenge from although I'm still not sure about this card, I'm sure it'll grow on me.
