Dynamic Duos #25 - Stampin' Up! Memorable Moments

Hi!Here is my third card as Guest Designer for Dynamic Duos this month. Bold colour challenge this week and even though they are obvious Halloween colours I thought I would have a go at a birthday card for a friend of mine who is turning 30 soon (hopefully she isn't reading this blog as I've just ruined her surprise card!!!)

The "dessert option" this week is die-cuts so I used the matching Framelits to the Memorable Moments 'frame' stamp. I also used a little trick that I learned from the lovely and very generous Tanya Bell who in this blog post demonstrates how to make a small frame around a framelit. I played around with my Labels Collection Framelit (the size above the Memorable Moments stamp framelit) and got a nice little border. :)  

Materials used:
Stamps - Memorable Moments
Ink - Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black
Cardstock - Whisper White, Basic Black, Champagne Glimmer paper, Pumpkin Pie Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper
Accessories - Pumpkin Pie brads
Tools - Paper Cutter, SNAIL, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Dimensionals, Big Shot, Labels Collection Framelits, Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Paper Piercing Pack    


  1. You've proven that the colors do NOT have to be Halloween because this is a perfect birthday card!

  2. I love how the Pumpkin Pie pops off this card! The glimmer paper adds the perfect bling! Wonderful design Alison!

  3. Great job with the die cuts Alison! And I love the polka dots ;)

  4. FAB colours for a birthday card Alison! I think I've made way more Halloween cards than any Aussie should LOL!

  5. Very nice Alison! Love it! I keep looking at that stamp set and then change my mind about getting it.I keep seeing lots of cards that I love using this stamp set. Think it will be my next purchase!

  6. Great card, the embossed background is gorgeous and I love the labels.
