For today’s card I’ve pulled out the Flowering Vine Dies which coordinate with the Vine design stamp set, both from the January to June Mini Catalogue. I love how much detail they have in the three large dies and the overall fresh modern vibe with they have.
I’ve used Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Basic White for this card. I love how much the white background die stands out on the card and the Magenta Madness just adds a pop of colour.
A few Coastal Cabana Rhinestone for the flower centres and the card is done. I can’t wait to play with this set some more.
We’ve just had two days of glorious sunshine here in the UK which made me think ice creams outside might be a possibility over the Easter weekend. Sadly this is England so sunny periods are short lived and we’re back to wooly jumpers and cocoa beside the fire.
Anyway thought I’d still share this bright cheery ice-cream card and we can all keep our fingers crossed the sunshine makes an appearance again soon. I chose to Magenta Madness as my background colour as I think its the brightness most fun colour we have. I’ve paired that with Early Espresso and Mint Macaron to emphasize the ice-cream theme.
I used the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set to stamp my ice cream scoops and cone and the matching Ice cream Builder Punch to punch out. Then simply build your ice cream however you want, mines got Chocolate, Stawberry and Mint with Chocolate Sprinkles!
The greeting was stamped on spare cardstock in Early Espresso and fussy cut out, I’m new to fussy cutting words so I’m not 100% happy with the result but practise makes perfect. A few Magenta Madness Enamel Dots finish off the card.
Today’s cards are made with the Brilliant Wings and the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ Paper Pack. I love when Stampin’ Up! bring out designer paper which has coordinating dies as it makes creating so easy. Whats great about these products is the outline die in the set cuts out six complete butterflies from one sheet of paper in one cut, or if you’re using the stamp set you can simply stamp and cut, meaning you can very quickly end up with a desk full of butterflies like me!
Both background papers also come from the Butterfly Bijou paper pack, I love all the pastel shades and watercolour effects on these sheets so much I’ve ordered a couple more of these paper packs.
The greeting for both cards comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and the die comes from the Painted Labels die set.
A little Misty Moonlight Twill Ribbon and a few Enamel Dots and the cards are done. I’m really loving how great Misty Moonlight and Just Jade look together on these cards.
The Flower & Field Designer Paper is one of the free paper packs available this Sale-A-Bration with an order over £45.00. It’s probably not a pack I would have purchased myself despite it being floral as it’s quite dark, however after making this set of cards I quite like it.
I’ve kept the cards simple and let the paper do the talking, with just a simple matt in a coordinating colour, which I think helps the patterns pop.
The sentiments come from the stamp set Heal the Heart which is also a free Sale-A-Bration set. To finish off the cards I added some of the Whisper white Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and some Basic Rhinestones.
These two are my favourites, probabley because they both feel very summery and I’m really missing the sun at the moment. Which one is your favourite?
