My youngest son was invited to a Lego Party the other week.  It wasn't hard for me to work out what kind of card to make the 7 year old.  I know there are a lot of these types of cards out there and this is my version.  Hope you like it.

So for this card I used Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight and Gumball Green (I'll be sad when this colour goes).  I used the Dotted Embossing folder from the Sale-a-Brations Collection as a base plate.

The blocks were punched out using the 1" Square Punch and the circle punch from the Itty Bitty pack.  I made two layers of circles to give dimension and then I used the white Gel Pen to add highlights and more dimension.  I just glued the dots on using a liquid glue which makes it easier to centre them against each other by moving them around till they look right.

The Birthday Boy absolutely loved it and I was pretty pleased too.  So easy and fairly quick to make as well.

Hi everyone.  I have finally got back into the swing of things and today I have for you the cards I made for my recent "Frames Class".  There are a few different ways we can make frames these days and especially with the new "On Film"  Framelits Dies $49.95 (aus)  in the Occasions Catalogue.

My favourite was this one using the "Perfect Pennants" stamp set, gold sequins, Gold Baker's Twine,  the Bitty Banner Punch from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue (free when you spend $90 or more) and the "On Film Framelits Dies".  The DSP is from the In-Colour Paper Stack and I used Strawberry Slush.

This next card also uses the "On Film" framelits dies and the special Valentines Stamp Set promoted earlier in the year.  I've never had an Eiffel  Tower but now I do.  Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set along with some Washi Tape and the  New Silver Baker's Twine.

I love this colour combination, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate with a  bit of Silver thrown in the mix.  Again I used Gorgeous Grunge and Flower Shop Stamp Sets and the Rectangular Embossing Frame

The last of the set was this gorgeous Shaker Frame Card made using the Chalk Talk Bundle and the Shaker Frame Sticky Mounts.  I thought it was about time I bought these little gems and give them a go.
You will also need a window sheet and some chunky silver glitter to complete the shaker frame.  I cut out the leaves using the Silver Foil Card with the leaves from the Bird Punch.  

I hope you have enjoyed these and have a go at making them yourselves.  Of course you can purchase all of these products online from my Online Store and have them shipped straight to your door (within Australia only).
