Lots to show today

Lots to show today (trying to keep up on all my promises!). Usually I take my photos at night (when the lighting is bad) which means they sometimes don't turn out quite good enough to show. This week I'm on afternoon shift - so I can show lots of photos taken in daylight. So much better when the lighting works!

Seeing as we're counting down to Easter, I'll start with the Easter Cards. Yesterday I showed you the stack that I had made, so now I'll show the detail! Both of these cards have a background print which you can easily create for yourself. Choose a colour cardstock, stamp a random pattern with matching ink and then highlight parts of it (like the flower centres). The second card is actually in reverse! I used white cardstock and stamped a colour random pattern over it!

This is my favourite card (you might have noticed that this one was inspired by the Easter Workshop!):

Stamps: A Good Egg

Inks: Stampin' Up! Classic Basic Black, Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue & Pumpkin Pie (marker)

Papers: Stampin' Up! Certainly Celery (textured), Bashful Blue & Whisper White

Other (SU): Double-Stitched Grosgrain ribbon, Stampin' Pastels, white gel ink pen, Stampin' Dimensionals

Tip: Use the chalks to colour in the chick and the white gel ink pen to colour in the flowers.

The second Easter Card uses my favourite colour. Pink of course! The 'A Good Egg' stamp set from Stampin' Up! lets you decorate your 'Easter Eggs' how you like. I've used the stripes and circles!

Stamps: A Good Egg

Inks: Stampin' Up! Classic Chocolate Chip & Bashful Blue, Versamark ink

Papers: Stampin' Up! Pink Pirouette & Whisper White

Other (SU): Scallop Edge punch, Stampin' Pastels, white gel ink pen &Stampin' Dimensionals

Other (Non-SU): Assorted gel/glaze/souffle pens for colouring in, pearls, pink double-stitched ribbon & Kindy Glitz

Tip: I have used Versamark ink to stamp the circles on the egg and then lightly dusted over with the chalks. Use your favourite gel ink pens to colour in the flower centres.

And now I can show you my scrap pages from Sunday and a few weeks ago!! As you might already know, scrapbooking hasn't been 'my thing'. But it was my challenge/resolution for the year, to give it a go. These first two pages I made at Memoranza and are not made with SU products. I have decided to make a page for both my beautiful boys, so these are the front covers:

Big Boy Luke uses pastel colours and the fantastic jigsaw punch:

Baby Matthew (although not such a baby any more, toddler really), uses the funky colours and patterns.

And last, but in not any way least, are the pages I made a few weeks ago at Trudy's. I can't remember if I showed them or not, so just in case, here they are!

Stamps: Wild About You

Inks: Stampin' Up! Classic Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Yoyo Yellow

Papers: Stampin' Up! Green Galore, Yoyo Yellow & Blue

Other (Non-SU): Frog & dragonfly punches

Tip: I have fringed a strip of green cardstock to make 'grass' and then manipulated it to curve around the 'water'.

Anyway that's it for me. I'm off to make something before I have to go to work!
