The South Pacific ( Australia and New Zealand ) Stampin' Up! Convention is coming up soon in May so I have been busy starting my swaps and also doing a couple of my "Roomie" Gifts. The Convention this year is in my home town of Brisbane but I am still staying in close to where all the action is so I don't miss out on anything :) I love Convention so simply can't wait till this years'. I can't show you any of these yet as they are a secret!! I will have lots of pics to share after Convention.
I still have to keep up to date with my family and friends' birthday cards so I thought I would share a couple of my March ones with you now.
I found inspiration for this one from Pinterest - great source of Stampin' Up! creations on this site. I am loving it. It is a card by Virginia Kilmore and Desiree Spenst. I have just adapted the embellishments for me. This is a card for my sister's birthday and I used the Naturals White cardstock on Page 160 of the Annual Catalogue. This has a slight fleck through it which gives it a bit more character. I also used up some of my old retired DSPs both on the card and on the envelope flap.
This card is using the new Designer Builder Brads in the Seasonal Catalogue on Page 12 and I cut a small Itty Bitty Punch Pack circle from the Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper for the centre of the Brad. The flower is using Daydream Medallions Stamp Set and the Floral Frames Framelits. The colours are Midnight Muse and Whisper White. The greeting is from the retired stamp set "A Word for You". This card is for a good friend and neighbour's birthday next week. I hope she likes it.
Happy creating and TFL
