Medallion card

This card was made by using SU very vanilla cardstock, then i added SU cose to cocoa cardstock on top.
Then i decided to add SU creamy caramel cardstock, i then took apiece of SU very vanilla and stamped the SU medallion image in versamark on my cardstock. Then i used my SU stampin' pastels and used close to cocoa, creamy caramel pastels to get the above effects. Then i added a chocolate chip SU brad for the centre.

A bag a lope

Well, i have seen these "bag a lope" so many times but neve tried to make one until today.
You start with an envelope, i used one that measured 16cm x 23cm. Stick down the flap to start.
Then your score both sides and the bottom at 2.5 cm in from the edge then cut it down to 16.5cm x 16.
Fold the scored lines over and stamp your envelope on the side that the folds are underneath.
Then turn over and turn the scored lines the opposite way and stamp this side also.
Open the envelope out and at each side and press on the bottom so that it goes flat and looks like this

Then glue the pointed ends and turn back on the bottom of the bag,
then stand it up with opening at the top hold both sides together and punch 2 holes in.
Then cut a piece of ribbon thread it through the 2 holes and tie together you could add a tag if you wanted.
I used Melon Mambo, Soft Suede and Rich Razzelberry ink pads for mine i also used Friendship blooms stamp set.

Trendy Trees

To make this card i used SU mellow moss cardstock which i stamped with one of the stamps from the SU trendy trees set.
I cut a piece of SU cardstock, creamy caramel, then i cut a smaller piece of mellow mose to sit on top of the creamy caramel.
I cut a piece of SU cream cardstock and stamped it using the SU stamp set  trendy trees, I punched a hole with the word punch. The words are also from the trendy trees set.
This was a good set to buy since it has words and images. Thanks for looking and please leave feed back.

Birthday Card

I made this card for my brother in law who will be 60 next week.
I decided i would do this card for him because he and my sister left the UK
40 years ago and went to Aus to live.
They travelled round Australia fruit picking before making a home in Perth, Western Australia.
I think of the pictures they sent home for us and their touring vehicle - a camper van.  This image just made me think back and i am sure it will do the same for him and bring back many a memory.

Birthday card

I made this card for a young man that comes to our home for respite care.  He luvs cars and seems to pick the older type.
I was thinking of what i would make for his 21st birthday, i had a good old rummage around and came across this one and thought it would be ideal.
Thanks for taking the time to look.
