Something for Baby Framelits and Stamp Set

I'm still on the iPad so no links again today and for some reason known only to blogger one of the sets of photos for a post I'd planned seem to be unavailable so I'm just going to remind you to check out this weeks deals, they have two colours of chevron ribbon on offer this week, go to my shop via the link at the end of this post or in my right hand side bar >>>> 
**Updated with Links; 31/7/14, New Weekly specials too-- including the Bigz Bow die!!! :-)**
Please also visit my Facebook page and scroll back a couple if days to see how gorgeous these chevron ribbons look tied to your gifts, they're not just for cards you know!  Again, link at the end of this post :-)
OK, onto today's card(s), we made this at stamp-a-stack last time so as it was a card you might keep not knowing when you need it I chose a neutral lemon (So Saffron card and Hello Honey DSP and ribbon) with crumb cake colour way....
We die cut the onesie out with the framelits from paper from the Moonlight paper stack, inking the edges and adding it on foam pads with a punched heart, background was stamped with the duck using Versamark ink
And finally, I made the same card in a blue colour way too, here they are together, please click on any picture to make them bigger :-)
OK, that's all from me for now, we are off the Great Yarmouth today and I'm sure I'll be keeping you posted on Facebook if you want to follow me there :-)
Stampin' Hugs,

Work of Art by Stampin' Up!

Today's card is a super simple style that actually takes a bit more time than you would think as you need to get all those little chevrons all lined up! Top tip: You need to remember to wait for each lot of ink to dry before placing the imaging sheet down for the next colour, especially with the new ink pads. They give a great image quality but do take that bit longer to dry!
Ok, here is the card, I used Midnight Muse (retired, try using Night of Navy instead) with the new Lost Lagoon and Soft Sky to make this pattern using the Work of Art stamp set...
This sentiment is also included as us the heart at the top of the chevron pattern. And you've gotta have bling! To make this more of a male suitable card why not swap them for buttons? 
Ok, still no links today but we should be back home later today after spending a lovely time in both Norfolk with dear friends and then a day out in London yesterday on our way back home, I'll add a few photos or pop over to my Facebook page for a little look, link below :-)
Thanks for looking today!
Stampin' hugs from me for now,

Cube Cards with All Bloom DSP and lots of Stampin' Up! punches!

Hello there,
Today's card is a card we made in class last week and I also wanted something a bit special for my friends birthday so I sent this. I was totally inspired by a card I saw by my friend Kim and I followed a video tutorial too but at the moment I'm blogging from my iPad so I'll have to add the links next week when I get to my laptop, sorry :-/.
**Edit to share the LINK for cube card tutorial**
I used a base of Sahara Sand card with the new All Bloom paper stack choosing just 3 sheets from the stack (not easy to pick just 3!) which meant we had 6 patterns on the card, I also made one with the postage stamp punch and one with the hexagon punch. Anyway, have look, see what you think...
Front of the one with hexagon and three small butterflies,
The back showing the little tag for writing on, Made using the Deco Labels framelits, I attached it to the card with these cute little paper clips, they are in the clearance rack for just £2.19 right now but only while stocks last!
Ok, postage stamp version, I added the sentiment from my new photopolymer set "Age Awareness" in lost lagoon and a larger butterfly too
The back, of this one is much the same as the other :-)
Then adding a flower to the top of the centre stack using a single layer using the Pansy punch and two Petit Petals punched flowers
We also made an envelope using the envelope punch board 
But we left it loose when we secured it so the card wouldn't get too squashed!
And finally the two together again.
Ok, that's me done for today, I'll be back hopefully tomorrow with another card for you!
And I'll pop all the links on here when I get home,
Stampin' hugs form me for today,
