Good morning all.....if you love Kanban, you will love this :)
Fancy having a go? x
This is the final part of yesterday's order for my friend. She is giving a dinner party next week for her birthday and asked me to supply her with place cards and favour bags for her guests, I did the same at Christmas in hot pink and turquoise and they looked great together. This time though she has gone for a more subdued silver and gold!
These are the last of the Valentine cards I made this year for a very good customer and lovely friend.
I've had to keep these two cards under wraps till today as one is for my DH and one is for DD2's boyfriend. My blog is linked to my Facebook and Twitter accounts and they are both friends with me on Facebook!! :)
I recently bought two new Bebunny cds and stamp sets and the images and papers used for both cards are taken from the Bebunny Love cd.
Another fab, fun card using a Kanban topper....they really do get me out of a hole when I'm busy and need an urgent card which is a good job because I still have a couple of hundred sheets left! :)
Well we are into the second week of the challenge over on Kathy's Waffle Sketch File using the three fabulous sketches, all the same but using different shapes in the circle in the hope that it helps you see beyond the hearts which we have all been using frantically just lately!
This is the sketch I used on my card
I had some new stamps and dies arrive on Saturday from Clearly Besotted but I was gutted that I didn't get the chance to play with them until today and then it was just a really quick card! I absolutely adore Stephanie's stamps and dies and haven't got one set yet that I've not been sure of. The service is absolutely fantastic and I just love receiving the parcels all wrapped up in pink tissue paper, it almost seems a shame to open them. Lol
Here is what I came up with....isn't this little stork just so cute :)
I am really pleased with the way these favours etc turned out so I'm going to build a full stationery set around them. The favours were made to dress the Holiday Inn, Warmsworth, Doncaster a couple of weeks ago when we attended a wedding open evening. This gives the wedding couples a chance to see the venue dressed as it would be for a wedding.
love & marriage, go together like a horse & carriage!! I won't do any more, my singing is dire lol.
This is a card made a few days ago for my youngest daughter to give to one of the clients in the salon she works in as she had lost her husband. Kanban rose to the challenge again. If
I'm not quite sure what to do or am in a hurry to make a card I always reach for my Kanban stash (and boy do I need to use some...I still have loads!)
If you love Kanban products I hope that you are aware that they are available now from Aspire Crafts. The good news is that Aspire Crafts have obtained the licence to be able to reprint all of the previous kits etc as well as producing new ones. If you pop over to Aspire you will see that they are offering a Kanban Taster kit for just £3.99
The Kanban Design Team have set up a a Facebook group called For The Love Of Kanban. This is the Official Kanban group and you have to apply to join. There are over 200 members now and we have just launched our own challenge, you can see my card on the Crafting Muskateers challenge post as I cheated and used my one card for both challenges :)
The Aspire DT have a Facebook group too, called the Aspiring Crafters and it is THE place to be seen if you love the new offerings by Aspire Crafts. The Aspiring Crafters group have also just launched their own challenge so if you would like to join in then this is the place to be and before I forget, there is the Aspire Crafts blog to keep an eye on for all things newsworthy :) This is my card for the Aspire challenge
A pinch and a punch on the 1st of the month! Right that's got that out of the way so that we can move on with things!! I realise that this is the 2nd of Feb but I actually started rewriting this post yesterday morning as I wasn't happy with the one I wrote last week....I got a bit side tracked though which is why I'm just finishing it now lol (I've been weather watching on the Watering Hole web cam in Perranporth. It's quite frightening as a huge chunk of sand was removed from the beach in the last storm last month which left the Watering Hole, the pub on the beach, very exposed and not far from the edge. I just hope that it's still standing in the morning after more terrible tides have hit on yesterday morning as predicted.
