Weekly Inspiration

Night of Navy

This week I have had fun playing with one of my favourite colours from the Stampin' Up! Regals range...Night of Navy. Love it!
 
These 2 cards were made using the Traveler and Sprinkles of Life stamp sets, Night of Navy and Whisper White cardstock. Unfortunately the ribbon is now retired!
The background is made using Bubble Wrap which was cut into strips, inked with Smoky Slate and placed over the card with a little pressure from an acrylic block. 
I really like the way that it gives an irregular impression.

All Day Class

20th August

This month we held another All Day class. 
These are some of the amazing projects the ladies made.
Very well done ladies.





I love the way that everyone puts there own ideas into the porjects and makes them so individual.
JUST PERFECT ladies.

The Wedding

For the last few months, I have been helping with my son and now daughter in law's wedding.
As you may have read also that Cary has been covering me
for the last few weeks before the wedding.
Here are some of the photos to show how wonderful the whole day was.

Jonathan and Jemma Moore
 As you can see the weather was absolutely perfect in every way.

 My beautiful grand-daughter Olivia above
and below, is my new gorgeous grand-children Jayden (with Grand-dad) and Bella. 
Both a little overwhelmed. They soon relaxed and were playing with friends.

Friends forever!  
Thank you for popping by.

Perpetual Calendar

Calendars

With a name like Perpetual Calendar, we have to show a calendar.
I have made this version from one that I was given by another Stampin' Up! demonstrator
in November 2015. I am only sorry that I can't remember who it is to give them the credit.



 As you will see by the pictures, I really do use my calendar.

The current month is in the holder and the other months are laid behind it on the cover.
6 pieces of double sided designs as shown below using all of the stamps.

  
 
 
  
 
 
 
 
 
 


I WILL be making another for next year too.
I do hope that you have been given some inspiration this week.
Please pop by regularly to see what else 2 Big Girls Crafting comes up with.
Thank you,
Gill

Perpetual Calendar

Butterflies

Today, I've gone Butterfly barmy!
The little set of the butterflies are really lovely and so delicate.

 I

I have added a few die-cuts of butterflies to follow the little ones.
I inked the butterflies in So Saffron then 'kissed' the edges with Calypso Coral ink and stamped 
onto the Whisper White mat.  
The mat was then embossed with Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
I stamped a small piece of cardstock with the little butterflies in So Saffron and Calypso Coral.
Using daubers, I added Pear Pizazz then Soft Sky. 
Die-cut the large butterflies using Bold Butterflies and Butterflies thinlits. 
Butterflies, in my opinion, cry out for rhinestones!

 O

The message is from Over The Rainbow stamp set.
Using the names of the months stamps from Perpetual Calendar, I stamped and trimmed them to make
the small collection of the 'Sunshine' months when butterflies are around.
Just a little fun!

Perpetual Calendar

 

This card I was inspired by a beautiful card that Cary made for the all day class we held this weekend.
Die cut tree and leaves from the Beautiful Branches Framelets and using a dauber, I added different colours over white to get the autumnal shades.
The 2 different leaves were again from the Perpetual Calendar set. They are perfect for backgrounds as well as individual mats too.

Perpetual Birthday Calendar

    Today's card is another lovely and bright one.


This time I have used the Butterfly and 2 different Flower stamps from the set.
With a piece of leftover image, I've die cut the butterfly using Bold Butterflies Framelets.
The messages used are from Better Together stamp set and
 Rhinestones added to make the card nice and blingy!    
All mounted onto Bermuda Bay cardstock.
