A Slice of Life

Hmmm….right now I’m sitting here with mud up my arms and under my nails just before setting out to work because my eldest son wanted to put his new tent away to take with him to his cousins house today! *sigh*  Why do they always pick the most inopportune times to do anything!!!
Anyhow…I made a couple of cards from the Slice of Life Stamp Set last night but wanted to wait til today to photo them.  I think they’re cute…
Slice of Life
This first one uses the flowers from the Slice of Life set and Elegant Wallpaper embossing folder.  The greeting is from the Party This Way set.  I’ve used Baja Breeze as my colour and paper pieced the vase using scraps of paper from Elegant Soiree DSP.  I’ve finished it with Whisper White ribbon tied in a knot.
Baby Card This second one uses the baby grow from the Slice of Life set.  I’ve stamped it five times on to card stock and Baja  Breeze DSP papers (can you see a theme here!!).  I’ve used the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder on Whisper White to IMG_0679[1]create the background and  matted it on to Baja Breeze cs before sticking to the card front.  I stamped the baby grows along the front of the card, using my SAMJ for positioning and then 3D’d alternate ones.  Hmm…not the best photo, but you can get what I mean.
This set is available as a Hostess gift when you host a party to the value of £150.  If you’d like to host your own party, just drop me a line :-).
