Be As Bold As Your Lipstick Card

One for the girls today with this lipstick themed card made with the Dressed to Impress  stamp set and matching All Dressed Up dies. I’ve used the colour scheme from the Best Dressed 6 x 6 Designer Paper of Lovely Lipstick, Basic Black and Purple Posy to highlight the femininity of the card.

I’ve used the tag die from the Bonanaze dies, this was the perfect size to fit my sentiment on and the die cut lipstick.

I’ve finished the card off with some 1/8″ grosgrain ribbon in Lovely Lipstick and some enamel dots from the Happiness Blooms collection.

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.

Happy Birthday Dad Card

Yesterday it was my dad’s birthday so I thought I’d share the card I made him with you. He’s a farmer so very rarely has time to rest so is unlikely to have spent his birthday like this. This image from A Good Man does remind me of how he used to look on beach holidays from when I was younger so hopefully he’ll remember this and enjoy his card too.

I coloured the image in Stampin’ Blends which are definitley one of my favourite Stampin’ Up! products as they make colouring a joy. The top line of the greeting comes from the same A Good Man set and the Happy Birthday comes from Perennial Birthday stamp set.

I finished the card off with three strips of the Blueberry Bushell Ribbon which I think highlights the stripes in the Come Sail Away Designer Paper. I also added some Blueberry Bushell Rhinnestones from the Noble Peacock collection.

Pretty Peacock Gather Together Card

Today’s monochromatic Pretty Peacock card would make the perfect notecard for suggesting a meet-up with friends or just to let them know you care.  I love how all the different embellishments work together to create interest to what is a very simple card.

I wanted to use the wooden leaves on numerous projects but couldn’t quite make them work here I think thye do. The first leaf was adhered to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the second was adhered using Mini Glue Glue Dots so it could add some dimension to the card.

A few Pretty Peacock Rhinestone from the Nobel Peacock collection and the card is finished.  A card suitable for all year round and not just harvest time.

Pastel Above the Clouds Card

I’ve had the Above the Clouds bundle in my stash since june but I’ve not inked it up yet. I love the sentiments in this set but I’ve struggled with the balloons, so I’ve taken inspiration from the catalogue and made my own version of the card on page 89 of the Annual Catalogue.

I’ve used the Stitched Rectangle dies to create the Purple Posy frame and the matt for the clouds, which were stamped in Pool Party.

The balloons are stamped in Purple Posy and Grapefruit Grove and the greeting is stamped in Highland Heather so it stands out more.

I’ve finished the card off with three sequins from the iridescent assortment. I’m quite pleased with how this turned out so hopefully theis set will see some more ink again soon.
