Everybody Loves A Pinata!!

Hey all! Long weekend! Woo hoo! I have a lovely day today - had a crfaty session around a Stampin' Up! pal of mine Fionas - she was hosting her mini catty party today (before jetting off to the States for a couple of days - lucky thing!!!) We made a lovely card featuring 'The Open Sea' set (page 19 of the new Summer Mini Catty) I haven't got around to photographing this card yet so check back in a day or two to view this card! This afternoon i went out shopping with my Sis, Nan and Dad and brought lots of bits for Baby Tiddlywink!!!

Anyway... today i have another card to share with you using the 'Packed For Birthday' stamp that i featured yesterday. This stamp is absolutely fab because you can use it as a complete whole or for individuals componants - for this card i just stamped out the pinata element of the stamp:

Onto a 'Wisteria Wonder' cardbase i layered a piece of 'Melon Mambo'. Onto a piece of 'Whisper White' card i stamped the sentiment (from the 'Happiest Birthday Wishes' set) using 'Melon Mambo' ink.

On a seperate piece of card i stamped the pinata element of the 'Packed For Birthday' stamp...

using 'Basic Black' ink and then coloured it in using a range of 'Stampin' Write Markers' ('Wisteria Wonder', 'Melon Mambo' and 'Pretty In Pink') I cut out the pinata by hand and then glued it into place using some 'Dimensionals' to create a 3D effect.Before gluing down the 'Whisper White' card to the cardbase i used some of the new 'Wisteria Wonder' 'Bakers Twine' to create the string and bow to hang the pinata!!

Before i go today i have to share with you some of the fab accessories that are available in the new Summer Mini Catalogue, including the 'Bakers Twine' from the Summer Mini Catalogue (see page 22) It is just fab and such a bargain at just £2.50 per colour and you get approx 22.9m!!!
