Monochromatic Floral card with Blended Seasons

I’m going all modern and monochromatic for today’s card and simply using black and white. I’m loving how versatile the Blended Seasons bundle is, the combinations really do seem to be endless.

This time I simply stamped the large floral image on black cardstock and embossed in white, a technique which looks stunning no matter what image you use. Just remember to use your embossing buddy so you don’t end up with little white powder flecks everywhere.

Using the Stamparatus I was able to perfectly line up the greeting in my frame die cut from the Stitched Labels Framelits. The black 1/8″ cord trim works well to “fasten” the frame to my card. The background paper if from the Tropical Chic 6×6 DSP Stack which has a few black and white pattern options in it, if you don’t have this you could easily make your own or use the Petal Passion DSP from the Spring/Summer catalogue if you have any left. A few faceted black gems and the card is finished.

Here’s a look at what I did to the inside, just a simple bit of stamping.

Eskimo Twins with Cookie Cutter Christmas

I’ve pulled out an old favourite today, Cookie Cutter Christmas which was released two years ago, I’m sure many of you have this stamp set and its matching punch in your collection. It’s the perfect combination for making quick Christmas cards.

I’ve focused my project today on the cute little Eskimo as I’m not 100% certain this one has seen ink yet and with the addition of our Stampin’ Blends its even quicker to make a lovely card.

A little Wink of Stella on the Eskimo’s fur adds a little frosty sparkle and the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing folder adds a subtle snow effect to the background. Adding some Shimmer Ribbon in Pool Party gives a more frosty effect. I love how this card turned out and its the perfect non-traditional Christmas card to share with one of your best friends.

Best Bunny Birthday Cards

Today I’m sharing two cards I’ve made using the Best Bunny Bundle. This wasn’t a set which was top of my list but I earnt it free with my credits from Sal-A-Bration and now I’ve used it I love it, that bunny is just so cute!

I chose to combine it with the Twinkle Twinkle DSP which has some lovely subtle patterns which I can see being very versatile. For these cards I chose the star print as wanted to make some birthday cards for younger children. I chose colour combinations of Petal Pink with Soft Seafoam and Night of Navy with Pool Party.

The bunny is sitting on one of the line stamps from Swirly Frames as I didn’t notice the little grass stamp in the Best Bunny set until I was gluing the bunny onto the card. Some of the Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins add a little shimmer to the card and match perfectly as the change colour as different light catches them.

So if you’re not sure about this set give it a go, it makes lovely cards and making us the little bunnies is so much fun.
