Have you checked out the new Bird Balalrd suite yet? This is my favourite suite in the new catalogue so watch out for many gorgeous projects comimg up. My favourtie thing in the suite is the Bird Ballard DSP and particularly the sheet used in this project with the birds all over it, its beautiful. Here I’ve used to a small circle of the paper and its made a gorgeous card.
I used Flirty Flamingo for my card base as I thought it helped the flowers in the paper really pop out, even those this isn’t listed as one of the co-ordinating colours it still works wonderfully. I addded some detail with soem stamped flowers in Flirty Flamingo.
I cut the bird out with a circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies and then layered it on a Pearlized Doily with a circle of Petal Pink and a scalloped cicle of Pool Party both cut from the Layering Circles Dies.
I added the greeting “Hello” cut from the small tag die in the Merry Christmas Dies and added a linen thread bow to one side. To finishe the card off I added a few Pool Party sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment.
Here’s a quick look at the inside of the card. Hope you’ve enjoyed this look at some products in the Bird Ballard Suite.
Today I’m sharing a quick and simple card made using the Butterfly Gala Bundle which is back in stock, so grab it now. For the background I’ve added in a stamp from Touches of Textures, I’m sad this is leaving as its sucj a versatile set for adding a little something to a card.
I added three different splats for the background using So Saffron, Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron.
I stamped three matching butterflies on seperate cardstock and then punched them out with the Butterfly Duet Punch. I stamped some antenna for the butterfly in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then added the greeting to bottom of the card.
To finish the card I attache the butterflies with Stampin’ Dimensionals so the card has some dimension.
I love how this crad turned out, so simple but so beautiful too.
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.
As promised here’s another project made using the Share What You Love Suite and the A Big Thank You Bundle. Today I’ve just used the Thank You Thinlit to make a card with no stamping, so if you need a thank you card quickly, this is the card for you.
I would never have thought to put Rich Razzleberry with Grapefruit Grove but seeing them together in the Share What You Love Specaility DSP they really work. Thats why I love Stampin’ Up’s DSP whenever you’re stuck for a colour combination to work with just go and pull out some paper and you’ll soon find a great combination.
The flower on this card comes from another sheet of paper in this pack and was just fussy cut out and added with a Stampin’ Dimensional, I think it’s the perfect embellishment to finish this quick card.
Today I’m sharing a quick and simple anniversary card made with the To Have and To Hold stamp set. I really like the main image in this stamp set, I hope they are as happy as they look.
I coloured the image with Stampin’ Blends in Soft Sea Foam, Flirty Flamingo, Balmuy Blue, Crumb cake, Soft Suede and Petal Pink. Even though I didn’t use Lovley Lipstick in my colouring I think it adds a real “pop” to the card.
To add some interest to the background I added some of those lovely heart clusters from the Forever Lovely stamp set, stamped in Powder Pink to match the background.
If you don’t have a Big Shot you could just create a square frame for the main image making this an even simpler card to make.
I’m re-visting my favourite suite in the catalogue today the Share What You Love Suite and I do love it all. I’m pairing it with the A Big Thank You stamp set which has some lovely greetings which I think work really well with the gorgeous paper and embellishments in the Share What You Love Suite.
I’m sharing just three cards today but I have a couple more which I’ll share later in the month. So here’s the first one:
Along with this gorgeous floral paper I added some of the Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon, some of the Artisan Pearls and the frame on which I stamped the greeting comes from the Share What You Embellishment kit which features die-cut frames, twine, mini paper-clips and some gorgeous silver flower embellishments which you’ll see on the last card.
For this second card I fussy card some of the large flowers from one of the other sheets of paper. It doesn’t show too well on the photograph but these flowers are pearlescent so look stunning in real life and I also added a few loops of the Tranquil tide bakers twne from the embellishment kit because….well why not!
The third card uses another of the die-cut frames and those gorgeous silver roses to add a finishing touch. All these cards were very quick and easy to make and I think they all look stunning.
Today I’m sharing a sympathy card which is one of those projects I’m not keen on making as it usually means someone I love is hurting. This card was very much inspired by the samples in the Spring/Summer catalogue on page 47, as you can see I’ve used elements from all three cards to create my own version.
I’ve stuck to using just Balmy Blue with just a hint of Pear Pizzazz, by using the cardstock, ink and Stampin’ Marker you can have three variations of the same colour which match perfectly creating a gorgeous card.
To attach the doily frame I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets which I think are a must when using delicate die-cuts like this frame. I added a little bow of Linen Thread just to add a little rustic touch.
I’m gutted this set isn’t carrying over into the new catalogue as its one of my favourites from the Spring/Summer catlogue, the possibilities with it are endless. If you’re in Europe I suggest you grab it while you can.
