Today I’m sharing three cards made using the Rainbow of Happiness bundle and the Sunshine and Rainbows Designer Paper, which is currently free with a £45/€60 order.
Theses products are full of bright bold patterns and fun sentiments which can’t help but make you smile.
For this first card I cut one of the rainbows out from the paper as a focal point and used a strip of the rainbow paper as a base. I also die cut nine clouds from Shimmery white cardstock. Before I adhered everything to my card I did some stamping. I stamped the tiny lines stamp all over in Pool Party to give a tone on tone effect. I then stamped my greeting before adhering everything to the card.
This card has used the dies to create a rainbow from the designer paper. I adhered the whole 6 x 6 sheet to multipurpose adhesive sheets before cutting so they are easy to stick to any card. As the stamp for the sentiment is photopolymer I was able to manipulate it to form a curve around the rainbow.
This third card uses up my remaining piece from the designer paper but you could swap for any of the other patterns.
To make the base cut a piece of A4 cardstock to 28cm x 10.5cm. Score the long length at 7cm and 14cm and into the z-shape. I then covered the small front section with some of the Hand Penned Designer paper measuring 6.5cm x 10cm and covered the inside/back section with a piece measuring 13.5cm x 10cm.
I then cut the second largest frame from the Scalloped Contours dies in Mint Macaron and two rectangles from the fourth largest Stitched Rectangle die (the one measuring 10.5cm x 7cm. The white rectangles fit perfectly inside the stitched dots on the Mint Macaron rectangle.
On seperate cardstock I stamped the largest flower outline from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set and filled in with Mint Macaron leaves and Highland Heather flowers.
I stamped Thank You on one White rectangle before adhering to the Mint Macaron Scalloped rectangle, which I then adhered to the small front panel of the card, remember to only put adhesive on half of the rectangle otherwise it will stick to the back and not open. I then adhered the other white rectangle to the back of the card, lining it up behind the Mint Macaron rectangle.
I die cut my flowers and added them to the front of the card and then finished off with three Mint Macaron gems from the Genial Gems pack.
I love this bundle and hope it carries over into the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue.
This week I’m showcasing the Sweet Conversation Bundle along with the Sweet Talk DSP the perfect products to create some Valentine’s Day cards.
I’ve kept the colur scheme very simple with Real Red, Blushing Bride and a hint of Black.
This first card uses the lollipop paper from the Sweet talk pack and looking at it I knew I had to turn all those lollipops shiny with some Shimmery Crytal Effects. I love how this looks so just added a simple sentiment using the banner in the Sweet Heart Dies. To give it the banner edge on both ends make sure the edge of the die is hanging off the edge of the cutting plates on the first cut (so it doesn’t cut) and then flip it round so the middle part is over the edge before cutting again.
This second card uses a mix of paper and stamped die cuts to create the hearts and sentiment.
I went a bit crazy stamping and die cutting all the different hearts from the stamps and the paper so this card is a little collage of all my favourite hearts mixed togther, with a simple sentiment at the bottom to finish.
I love all these cards and can’t wait to play with these products again and use the other sheets of paper which are more colourful and more versatile.
I’m not someone who typically crafts for Halloween or who buys a lot a Halloween themed products, so there wont be too many original Halloween projects on this blog. Although I’ve caved this catalogue and bought the Frightfully Cute stamp set and the Cute Halloween DSP as they are very cut!
So here is one card I’ve made with these products so far:
Along with the Cute Halloween DSP and Frightfully Cute stamp I’ved added in the Picture This Dies to create the windows inthis card. I love all the cute litter critters in this paper and they work so well with the little stamps in the set.
There might be more Halloween projects from me but I’m not promising.
