Hello and welcome! Today I have a bunch (11 to be exact) of quick, easy and very pretty floral cards to share with you. These are for Just Add Ink's newest challenge - probably the easiest ever - Just add Flowers! These cards are all thanks to 3 gorgeous paper prints from the Hues of Happiness pack. They began with a single card I made as a make and take project for an afternoon tea I organised for my lovely team, customers and crafty friends earlier in June.

Double Z fold F1 car for a special birthday

Formula 1 F1 themed 21st birthday double z fold card. Card by Di Barnes Independent Demonstrator in Sydney Australia - colourmehappy - ecutting - fancy folds
Hello & welcome to another project share. Something a little different today - a card I made for DD's 21st birthday in May. We can talk another time how my baby can actually be 21. She absolutely loves Formula 1 racing and her birthday pressie was a trip to the Melbourne Grand Prix, so her card had to include something related to F1.

Daniel Ricciardo is her favourite driver (& mine too) so the challenge was to create a card with Danny's McLaren car. An oversized double z fold card base is the support act. Here's how it turned out.

JAI 607 Choose two challenge - Cup of Tea card & treats

Handmade tea and friendship card and decorated treat box made with Stampin Up Cup of Tea, Happiness Abounds stamp sets and bundles, Stylish Shapes dies, Butterfly Kisses paper. Card by Di Barnes - Indpependent Demonstrator in Sydney Australia - cardmaking - stamping - card challenges - colourmehappy

Hello & welcome. Today I'm sharing my Design Team project for this week's Just Add Ink Choose Two challenge suggested by... me!

I made a tea themed card for a friend using the Cup of Tea stamp set and bundle and new In Color Stampin Blends markers. I do love a cup of tea and of course time shared with friends is the best... and don't drink coffee (shocking I know to some of you). This card was inspired by some treat boxes I made for last weekend. Here's how the card turned out. See the projects that inspired it later in this post.
