Today I’m sharing another childrens birthday card, this time made with the Over the Moon stamp set. The background was a watercolour wash of Mint Macaron on the old watwercolour paper, having now used our new Fluid 100 watercolour paper I much prefer this as its blends so much smoother.
I stamped the cow in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Stampin’ Blends before fussy cutting her out. Here’s a little close up of her:
I attached some linen thread around the base of the punched out balloon with Tear N Tape around the back. I then attached the thread to the cow using some more tape rolled into a ball, you could also use a glue dot here but I’m out of them at the moment.
To finish the card stamp Happy Birthday from Perennial Birthday across the bottom of the card in Rich Razzleberry.
Finished result a cute birthday card which I’m sure anyone would love.
Card Base: Half A4 sheet of cardstock measuring 14.9 x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm
Rich Razzleberry Matt: 14.4cm x 10cm
Watercolour Paper: 13.9cm x 9.5cm
This card was made from the Leave A Little Sparkle stamp set for one of my friends little girls who is unicorn mad, I think she will like it as the whole party was unicorn themed and had a very similar colour scheme.
First I created the background using the new Fluid 100 watercolour paper, which I think makes blending much easier than our previous watercolour paper. I spritzed the whole of my watercolour paper with water then used a mix of Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay and Mint Macaron to make a striped ombre effect background. I then used my heat tool to completely dry the background.
I added a couple of swirls to the background in Versamark which have shown up in the photo above and also added a greeting from Magical Mermaid in Rich Razzleberry.
I then stamped the unicorn in Tuxedo Black Memento onto Shimmery White cardstock, which sadly doesn’t show up. I then coloured the mane, tail and hooves with a mix of dark Stampin’ Blends in Mint Macaron, Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry. A touch of Wink of Stella was added to the unicorn horn to add extra sparkle.
To embellish the card I used the now retired Twinkle, Twinkle Adhesive stars but you could also use the Iridescent Sequins or the Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins for a similar effect.
I love this card and can’t wait to play around creating different coloured versions, I’m thinking Lovely Lipstick, Pumpkin Pie and Mango Melody would work well for a firey unicorn cards.

Aww I’m so sad that the Sweetest Thing stamp set and matching dies are leaving us, I’ve had so much fun playing with these and all the co-ordinating products in the How Sweet It Is Suite.
For this card I added the Rectangle Stitched Dies to create a background and a frame and then added a few die-cut jars and a simple greeting in the corner.
Here are a couple more of my favourite projects with this bundle:
Yes its another card with a balloon, I seem to have a bit of an obsession lately with them. Think I’m just sad they’re all retiring but it won’t be long before I have new favourites.
The Bella & Friends stamp set is probably one of the cutest in the current catalogue, along with Pretty Kitty which is also retiring. Simply stamp your favourite cute little dog, colour with Stampin’ Blends and you’ve got a lovely card in minutes.
For the background of this card I used the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder in Mint Macaron which works great with Rich Razzleberry, one of my all time favourite colour combinations.
A simple greeting stamped on a banner from Birthday Banners and you have a finished card.
Hope you’ve all has a lovely Easter weekend and enjoy this gorgoeus Bank Holiday sun.
I’m so so sad that the Happy Birthday Die is retiring, this is hands down my most used die, its so perfect for quick and gorgeous birthday cards. If you just buy one thing off the retiring list then make this the product, I think its a must have and will never part with mine.
For this quick birthday card I used the Best Route DSp as inspiration for a colour palette taking Blueberry Bushell as my main colour, the perfect boy birthday blue in my opinion and mixed it with some Mango Melody and Call Me Clover.
I finished the card off with some balloons from Birthday Banners another stamp set which is leaving us at the end of May.
This card is for my godson who is ten tomorrow, I hope he likes it.
When I started making this card it was going to be similar to the sample on page 16 of the Spring/Summer catalogue but I was going to swap the black diecut for Silver Foil. I couldn’t find my Silver Foil so used Champagne Foil instead and ended up with this card.
I’d forgotten how much I love the Champagne Foil, it really does add a wow factor to your project and I think it looks gorgeous with my favourite In-Colours Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Tranquil Tide and Fresh Fig.
To make the different coloured parcels I simply placed small pieces of cardstock behind the foil die cut and secured them with some Tear “n” Tape, you could use your markers to colour in each different section.
Hope you can join me again for another project tomorrow.
Today I’ve pulled out another older set Balloon Celebration which even after three years is still one of my favourites and with the matching Balloon Bouquet punch you cna have a lovely card in minutes.
The background paper on this card comes from the Broadway Birthday Speciality DSP, one side of each sheet has gold foiling one but on the other sides there are bright fun patterns. perfect for creating birthday card for peaople of any age.
If you have this stamp set then why don’t you pull it out and have a play this weekend?
