Best Bunny Birthday Cards

Today I’m sharing two cards I’ve made using the Best Bunny Bundle. This wasn’t a set which was top of my list but I earnt it free with my credits from Sal-A-Bration and now I’ve used it I love it, that bunny is just so cute!

I chose to combine it with the Twinkle Twinkle DSP which has some lovely subtle patterns which I can see being very versatile. For these cards I chose the star print as wanted to make some birthday cards for younger children. I chose colour combinations of Petal Pink with Soft Seafoam and Night of Navy with Pool Party.

The bunny is sitting on one of the line stamps from Swirly Frames as I didn’t notice the little grass stamp in the Best Bunny set until I was gluing the bunny onto the card. Some of the Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins add a little shimmer to the card and match perfectly as the change colour as different light catches them.

So if you’re not sure about this set give it a go, it makes lovely cards and making us the little bunnies is so much fun.

Bright and Cheery Birthday Card with Picture Perfect Birthday

For today’s card I used probably the brightest suite of products which are currently in the catalogue.  I think you can’t really go wrong with these products and any card made using them will brighten the recipients day. Here’s what I came up with:

Lemon Linme twist Happiest of birthdays to you

I love the combination of Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst together and think this card could work for males or females as its not overly feminine. The party blower stamps are really cleverly designed as the images all interlock making stamping a straight image super simple.

Magical Day Mermaid Birthday Card

Today I’m featuring the Magical Day stamp set out of the Spring/Summer catalogue, I love this set and was really hoping this would not be retiring, sadly it is so if you haven’t yet added it to your collection I highly recommend it.

I chose the little mermaid stamp as my focus as I wanted to use the bubble paper from the Myths and Magic Speciality DSP and the Glitter Epoxy Shapes. Here’s my card:

Beautiful Butterfly Birthday Card

For today’s card I pulled out two of my favourite stamp sets from the annual catalogue Butterfly Basics and Touches of Texture which I think sometimes get neglected at this time of year when we have a new catalogue full of goodies to play with. Touches of Texture is one of our more expensive sets so its perfect one to add to your starter kit as one of the two extra stamp sets you get for Sale-A-Bration.

I wanted a vintage feeling card so went with a colour scheme of Crumb cake, Blushing Bride, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.

One of my favourite stamps from these two sets is the big splotch stamp from Touches of Texture, its a great one for creating a quick stamped background.

To finish the card I added  the smaller detailed butterfly from the Butterflies Thinlits die set.

Here’s a look at the inside, where I have just added a little fern detail to one corner.

I’m Back… to Party with the Pandas

So if you’re a regular visitor to my blog you may have noticed that I’ve been away for the past couple of months, life got in the way and crafting had to take a back seat but I’m back now and ready to share plenty more crafty ideas with you all.

So today I’m sharing a quick and easy birthday card I made with the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Party Pandas, one of my favourites from this years selection.

I used a Rich Razzleberry card base with a layer of patterned paper from the Tutti-frutti 6 x 6 dsp pack. This is a great paper pack as there are so many colours included with lovely cheerful patterns on one side and fruity patterns on the other. I have to be honest I’m not a fan of the fruit sides but the others I just love as they are so versatile.

I stamped the cute little panda on a Whisper White oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits and matted on a larger scalloped one in Rich Razzleberry. I stamped the balloon on a scrap piece of the tutti-frutti paper and fussy cut it out to give the panda his balloon to pop over the layers.  I added a banner greeting stamped from the Birthday Banners stamp set and cut out with the Bunch of Banners Framelits.

And here’s a look at the inside, where I stamped a couple of the panda’s balloon’s in the corner and coloured them with the Rich Razzleberry and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends.

Hope you enjoyed today’s project and if you would like the Party Panda stamp set then just place an order of £45.00 or more before the end of the month and you can choose it as your Sale-A-Bration freebie.

Razzleberry Flowers Birthday Card using the Stampin’ Blends

For today’s card I wanted to do some colouring with the new Stampin’ Blends so pulled out the Color Me Happy stamp set which was also released last week. This stamp set has plenty of images to colour so is the perfect partner for the Blends.

It’s feels like ages since I made a card with any flowers on and as you know I love my flowers, so I pulled out the cute little flower stamp. I took a piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock measuring 9.5cm x 13.3cm and randomly stamped the flower all over.  Continue reading “Razzleberry Flowers Birthday Card using the Stampin’ Blends”

Poinsettia Style Card with Painted Harvest

For today’s project I have another card using the Painted Harvest stamp set, I was inspired by looking at Poinsettia’s and was originally going to make a Christmas card, however when I added the Pear Pizzazz card base I felt it would be better as a birthday card.  Continue reading “Poinsettia Style Card with Painted Harvest”
