Ink:- Pink Passion / Versamark
Cardstock:- Pink Passion / Basic Black / Confetti White
Punches:- Horizontal Slit
Accessories:- Brads / Ribbon / Aqua-Painters / Watercolour Crayons / Lots of Tags Dies / Heat Tool / Embossing Buddy / White Embossing Powder

Card - Pony Magical Birthday

Hi Everyone, We had a great time at Leah's last night. Julie showed us all how to make a gorgeous tool box for Father's Day so check out her blog during the week for a sneak peak. Everyone had gorgeous swap cards to share. We had to use a stamp set from the Autumn/Winter mini catalogue, and one or all of the new in-colours. I thought I'd show you mine below. This one uses Rich Razzleberry - very cute and girly.

A close-up of the pony. I've used blender pens for colouring and dazzling diamonds on the wings.

As you know, I love doing things in different colours - so this one is using soft suede.

And this one is with Melon Mambo.

Stamp Sets:- Pony Party
Ink:- Chocolate Chip / Rich Razzleberry / Pretty in Pink
Cardstock:- Rich Razzleberry / Pretty in Pink / Whisper White / DSP Sweet Always
Punches:- Word Window
Accessories:- Ribbon / SnW Markers / Blender Pens / Crystal Effects / Dazzling Diamonds / Daubers

Happy Stamping!

Stamp Sets:- Heartfelt Thanks
Ink:- Brocade Blue / Night of Navy / VersaMark
Cardstock:- Brocade Blue / Night of Navy / Whisper White / Bordering Blue
Punches:- Crop-A-Dile
Accessories:- Ribbon

Happy Stamping!

Good Luck Fish

Hi Everyone, This was a card I made for a monthly challenge on Stampin With Leah. This is such a cute stamp set.

The background was stamped with Versamark, and the sea-weed done with the Stampin' Pastels with some Dazzling Diamonds added.

It's a little hard to tell, but the fish are all embossed with clear powder to give them shine and dimension.

Stamp Sets:- Ocean Commotion / Sincere Salutations
Ink:- Riding Hood Red / Tangerine Tango / Rose Red / Versamark
Cardstock:-Kiwi Kiss / Rose Red / Whisper White
Punches:- Large Oval / Wide Oval
Accessories:- Clear Embossing Powder / Heat Tool / Pastels / Brads / 2 Way Glue Pen / Dazzling Diamonds

Happy Stamping!
