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?
I haven’t made many blue cards recently so decided to use Blueberry Bushel and Pool Party as a base for todays card. I pulled out Jar of Love which is one of my oldest stamp sets but also one of my most unused sets, I just find it hard work. Any ideas greatly appreciated!
Anyway I decided to use the little fish stamp and create an underwater type card. For the background I ran the Dot to Dot Textured Impressions folder through the Big Shot with some Pool Party cardstock, I love how this created a bubbly background.
For the centre of the card I stamped out the fishes in Pumpkin Pie and then cut masks out of post-it notes with the matching die from the Everyday Jars Framelits. I’d stamp and cut out three fish before I realised I didn’t need the stamping on the post-it notes, oops!!
After covering all the fish with their little masks I sponged over a layer of Pool Party ink. I added a little greeting with the Classic Label punch and dave one fish some dimension with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
For a final touch I added three little dots of the Fine-Tip glue nest to each fish which when complely dried looked like bubbles coming out of the fish, sadly these don’t show on the photos.
I’d love to see your creations with this stamp set as its one I struggle with.
So I’m back with another Floral Friday post and today I’m featuring the Bloom by Bloom stamp set. This is one of those stamp sets where you can just grab a few different inks and really have fun creating patterns and arrangements. For today’s cards I really embraced our bright and cheery colours and chose Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch and Granny Apple Green, the perfect spring combination.
For this first card I didn’t quite get the flower centres lined up properly but it still turned out to be my favourite card of the four. I used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set for the greeting and the Everyday Label and Classic Label punches to create my little focal point.
For this card I added a little strip of the Granny Apple Green polka dot paper from the Brights DSP stack. I decided to leave this one without a greeting as I think the flowers are enough on their own, plus it would be the perfect card to send to someone to cheer them up.
Again this one has some of the Brights DSP and I left it without a greeting,
The final one, which is probably the busiest looking one as the greeting and extra paper but was still quick and easy to put together.
I really love this stamp set and if you’re a floral fan like me its definitely one to add to your collection.
