Stampin' Up and hAnglar & stAnglar

I went to my first Stampin' Up party on Thursday since the new catalogue came out and started to make a couple of items. I made the basics of the card above, although I cocked up and had to remove part of it due to a grammar mistake...I put First Happy Birthday, instead of Happy First Birthday...what a doughnut.... Anyway originally I used the light blue cardstock and jumbo roller with the circles/dots on with a Versamark inkpad....but had to swap it for a scrap of Bazzill I had in a darker blue. Anyway the base of the card if the cream (not sure of the SU colour) the dark brown is Choc Chip and I am not sure of the lighter brown...so I am pretty useless really. Over the weekend I added the hAnglar & stAnglar "Boy on the Bike" from the Winter Club Kit coloured with ProMarkers using the following colours...
Ivory/Blush (Skin)
Pastel Yellow/Gold (Hair)
Cornflower (Jeans & Neckerchief)
Blue Pearl/Sandstone (Top)
Blue Pearl (Cap)
Cocoa (Shoes)
Cinnamon/Ice Grey 1,2 & 3 (Bicycle)
I use my Nestabiities to cut the oval, and added a kite stamp by Magnolia cololoured using ProMarkers and the same colours as the main image, with added embroidery thread to make the strings of the kite. The sentiment was done using DoodleBug stamps and Stampendous stamps, and finally to finish it off a few buttons from my stash.

This next card was made using the offcut of the background paper I made at the party....the scrap of the part I cocked up on the previous card. Again I added a hAnglar & stAnglar image and coloured with my ProMarkers...colours as follows...
Ivory/Blush (Skin)
Pastel Yellow/Gold (Hair)
Sandstone (Banner)
Pastel Blue (Shadow)
Finished off with a pice of SU Choc Chip Taffeta...such a simple little card and at 3 x 3 inches...my DD loved it.
