Silver Promotion Card using Birthday Blooms by SU! for a Monochrome Look

Hello there,
I have a card today that I made for my lovely downline Angel for promoting to Silver with Stampin' Up! I am so proud for her for achieving this goal and this is the card I made for her in a monochrome silver colourway, of course! Have a peek...
 I stamped this lovely flower from Birthday Blooms using versamark and heat embossed it in, yes, you guessed it, silver! Then coloured it in using an aqua painter and my Smoky Slate ink pad.
 I love how this changed this image completely from vintage and shabby chic to classy and elegant.
 I used some of the silver glitter tape from SaB down the side (but you could swap it out for glimmer paper if you don't have this) and topped it with a silver sequin strip.
 Wouldn't this make a fab silver wedding card too?
 Angela chose a PL album and pages for her promotion gift and I wrapped it to match
 with some of every silver ribbon I had ;-)
OK, I'm going to finish today with one last picture of the card. I really hope you liked this? It's one of my faves ;-)
Just to let you know I'm closing this months hostess code on Saturday evening so if you'd like bonus gift in the post from me in May then please use the code below with your order before then :-)
Thanks for looking today.

As I promised on Saturday's post (where I shared with you my Lip Balm Box) I have a new video for you today with a little box for a handbag sized box of wipes. These are more gifts from our Telford road trip ;-) I'll start with a few pics first for you. These first pics are of are the ones I gave to my ladies and the papers all matched the other gifts I gave them ;-)
 Inside is a standard pack of hand wipes and I managed to get two boxes from just one A4 sheet of card :-)

Football Shaker Card in Southampton/Saints colours using Stampin' Up! Products :-)

Hello there, 
Today I have a card that actually turned out exactly as I envisioned! Now that doesn't happen too often - well, not to me anyway! It was my friends sons birthday and he is football crazy, particularly Southampton, who are otherwise know as the Saints (if you are a non-football person ;-))
The Saints kit is red and white striped and I wanted to incorporate that in the card and make it a shaker card and this is what I came up with...
 I used a Neat and Tangled die for the striped background and topped it with stamped footballs from the (retired) Goal stamp set by SU! and some flat sequins before sewing a top layer of window sheets over the top... It's not the neatest sewing, I admit, so don't look too closely please ;-)
 This Happy Birthday is from the Party Wishes stamp set which is on the retiring list too :-(
 As you can see here this is quite a flat shaker card so I chose just the flat sequins from the pack.
 And a top view of the card.
 TIP: Try using washi tape to seal your envelopes for a bit of extra decoration ;-)
And I even decorated the bag to match today!
Well, the birthday boy liked his card and I hope you do too?
Thanks so much for looking today.
