Floral Friday: Pop of Petals Floral Trio Card

It’s Friday so it’s time for my weekly dose of floral stamping, today I’ve pulled out the Pop of Petals stamp set which hasn’t seen much ink recently. For today’s project I’ve used Petal Pink, Old Olive and Terracotta Tile, a colour I’ve not used much.

To create the flowers I pulled out my Stampin’ Markers in Petal Pink and Terracotta Tile. I coloured the centre of stamp with Petal Pink and the outer petals with Terracotta Tile to give a lovely two-tone flower when stamped. I stamped and punched out three of these. I then stamped and cut out six of the rose type leaves in Old Olive.

I ran the Whisper White layer through the Subtle Embossing Folder to add some texture, sadly this doesn’t show up on my photos. I mounted this on a background layer of Terracotta Tile and ran a strip of Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon across the middle.

I stamped my sentiment from the Stitched All Around stamp set onto a Whisper White die cut from the stitched Labels Dies. I then arranged the flowers around the sentiment and added the leaves. For a final finishing touch I added Frosted Epoxy Droplets, coloured in Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends, to the centre of each flower.

Have you pulled out the Pop of Petals stamp set recently, I’d love to know what you made.

Bermuda Bay Bonanza Birthday Card

Today I’m sharing this bright and cheery birthday card made with the Bonanza Buddies stamp and die bundle and the matching Birthday Bonanza Designer Paper. I love the cute little characters these stamps and dies create, perfect for any kids birthday big or small.

I’ve used Bermuda Bay as my card base as I think its highlights how bright and fun the birthday parcel ppaer is from the Birthday Bonanza DSP. I added a little of ther Ruched Daffodil Delight Ribbon across my DSP before adhering to the card to add a little texture.

The Koala and Lion were stamped and then die cut. I love how  the lions mane and tail end are on one stamp and die set so they line up perfectly. The Koala was stamped in Gray Granite and the Lion in Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody. The die cut balloons were stamped in Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay and Terracotta Tile.

To decorate the inside I added a row of Terracotta Tile birthday presents along the bottom of the card.

For this card I stuck to the colour scheme which matched the DSP but you could use any of our colours to make wonderful birthday cards.

Purple Posy Floral Birthday Card

Purple Posy is not  a colour I’ve reached for much as we don’t have the inkpad but today I thought I use it in the Stampin’ Blends today to colour in this lovely floral birthday cake from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set. This is one of the current sets available free with a qualifing order of £45.00 until the end of Sale-A-Bration on March 31st.

This image makes a great focal point for cards and with the matching die from the Birthday Dies set its easy to cut out too. I’ve coloured the main flowers with Purple Posy, the little berries with Rococo Rose and the leaves with Mint Macaron and I’ve used Crumb Cake to colour the cake stand.

For the background I ran some Whisper White cardstock through the Stone 3D Embossing Folder to add some subtle texture. I added a strip of Purple Posy In- Colour Designer paper to the bottom half of the textured cardstock and then added a stip of the 1/4″ Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon, before adhering it all to a Mint Macaron layer and then the card base.

To finish the card I added a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set, stamped in Highland Heather onto a die cut scalloped label from the Sending Flowers Dies. I then added another scalloped label in Mint Macaron cut in half behind the sentiment to help it stand out.  I finished the card by adding my coloured and die cut floral cake to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Perfect birthday card for any female in your life.

#Simple Stamping – Male Themed Cards With Over the Moon

For today’s cards I’m going back to basics and just using paper, ink and stamps, okay and a few Stampin’ Blends to create these cute male themed birthday cards with the Over the Moon stamp set and the Country Club Designer Paper.

As these stamps are of cows I’ve often gone down a more female route for cards but today they are getting a male treatment as I need some birthday cards for my farmer friends.

I’ve used the Country Club Designer Paper with the colours Garden Green and Night of Navy to create these simple matted and layered cards.

Simple Stamping - Over the Moon Card 1

The cows are coloured with the light versions of Stampin’ Blends in Petal Pink, Crumb Cake and Basic Black with a hint of Ivory for the noses.  The Happy Birthday sentiment comes from Itty Bitty Birthday, which has the perfect font for male cards.

Hello Fabulous Card

Here’s a simple card made using the Dressed to Impress stamp set and matching Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ designer paper. These products are perfect for all things girly and the paper has the perfect mix of girly items and gorgeous florals so is a winner in my book.

I’ve used Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss as my colour palette. On a Stitched Circle I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss and added some texture using the splotches from the set stamped off in Mint Macaron.

Hello

To finish the card off I added a strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, a Mint Macaron banner cut from the Best Dressed DSP and some rhinestones to add a little sparkle, which every girl needs.

This is a simple card which is quick to make with the designer paper doing all then hard work but I love it!

Lovely Lily Pad Birthday Card

Todays card features three products which are part of our Sale-A-Bration collection for 2020. The stamp set and paper pack are options which are available with a £50.00 order and the dies set is free with a purchase of £90 or more.

The Lily Impressions paper is stunning, it has so many of my favourite colours in it and I love its inspired by the painting by Claude Monet. This quick card highlights the paper and if you don’t like the pattern I’ve chosen, most of the other designs in the pack work just as well.

Lovley Lily Pad Birthday card - flat

The white die cut comes from the Wild Rose die set and the greeting comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. The Lovely Lily Pad stamp set is part of our new Reversibiles range, this means you can use both sides of the stamp for stamping. This doubles the creativity and is great for floral images which I love.

I stamped the solid parts of the lily’s first using the flat/ back sides of the stamps and by stamping one layer of Melon Mambo ink on scrap paper first. I then stamped over with the outline, they don’t quite line up due to the uneven flower but give a lovley artisitc effect which I think adds to the floral feel of the stamping. I did the same with the laeves using Granny Apple Green.

After die cutting I assembled the card and added a final outline die cut layer to the Lily flower to add extra dimension.

Watercolour Birthday Cake Card Duo

Today I’m sharing another birthday card duo, this time featuring the Piece of Cake stamp set and matching Cake Builder Punch.  I’ve used Rococo Rose for one card and Seaside Spray for the other and kept them simple by using no embellishments.

Rococo Rose Watercolour Cake Card

I used the Fluid 100 watercolour paper for the background and used the Aqua Painter to create a wash of colour over the backgorund. I then used the finger flick technique to add the flecked ink across the card to add some more detail. I then stamped the Happy Birthday from the stamp set all over randomly in Rococo Rose.

Seaside Spray Watercolour Cake Card

For the centre of the card I stamped dotty/stripy birthday cake in Tuxedo Memento Ink and then coloured with Stampin’ Blends beforing punching out. I also punch out to cake stands in Silver Foil. I then cut a white oval matt and stamped the little lollipops at the top. I adhered the white oval onto a Silver Foil oval and then attached to my card bases.

As a finishing touch added the cakes to the centre of the ovals using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give some dimension and interest to the card.

Which is your favourite the pink or blue version?
