Quick Card with The Gangs All Meer

Just a quick project today to highlight the cute little Meerkat family from The Gangs All Meer stamp set, I love their cheeky little faces.

I’ve gone with a colur scheme of Mango Melody, Pear Pizzazz and Granny Apple Green for my card base. I’ve used a piece of Pear Pizzazz as my background and stamped the little catus plants all over in Granny Apple Green just to give them more pop.

I added a strip of the Textured Weave Ribbon in Granny Apple Green across the top third of my card before adhering my Meerkat circle.

I coloured the Meerkat with Stampin’ Blends in Light Crumb Cake for their tummies and Light Soft Suede for the rest of their bodies. They are stood on a mix of Light Pumkin Pie and Light Mango Melody so it hopefully looks like sand.

This cute little stamp set is available until the end of March as a Sale-A-Bration freebie, so just place an order of £45 or more and you too could be stamping with these cuties.

Watercolour Birthday Cake Card Duo

Today I’m sharing another birthday card duo, this time featuring the Piece of Cake stamp set and matching Cake Builder Punch.  I’ve used Rococo Rose for one card and Seaside Spray for the other and kept them simple by using no embellishments.

Rococo Rose Watercolour Cake Card

I used the Fluid 100 watercolour paper for the background and used the Aqua Painter to create a wash of colour over the backgorund. I then used the finger flick technique to add the flecked ink across the card to add some more detail. I then stamped the Happy Birthday from the stamp set all over randomly in Rococo Rose.

Seaside Spray Watercolour Cake Card

For the centre of the card I stamped dotty/stripy birthday cake in Tuxedo Memento Ink and then coloured with Stampin’ Blends beforing punching out. I also punch out to cake stands in Silver Foil. I then cut a white oval matt and stamped the little lollipops at the top. I adhered the white oval onto a Silver Foil oval and then attached to my card bases.

As a finishing touch added the cakes to the centre of the ovals using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give some dimension and interest to the card.

Which is your favourite the pink or blue version?

Dino Birthday Card

Just a quick post today as I’m snowed under with Christmas wrapping. This is another birthday card made with the Dinoroar suite which has been one of my favourites for childrens cards.  These dinosaurs were cut straight from the Dinoroar DSP  with the Dino Dies, which makes putting a card together super quick.

I’ve added a little shimmer to this card with the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversable Ribbon  and the greeting comes from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.

I think this card would be suitable for boys or girls because of the mix of colours and anyway who doesn’t love a cute dinosaur!

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.

Tis the Season for Santa Christmas Card

With the countdown on and the big day only a month away it seemed fitting to share a project featuring Santa himself today.

This cute card combines products from the Night Before Christmas suite and a background created with the Winter Knit 3D Embossing folder.

Colouring with the stampin’ Blends has brought Santa to life and few of the Snowflake Sequins has added a little sparkle to this festive card.

A Holiday Hello From #Elfie

I’ve pulled out my Stampin’ Blends for today’s card and coloured the largest image from the #Elfie stamp set. This is one of those images which can fill a whole card front so you really don’t need much else.

I’ve used a little bit of the Wrapped In Plaid DSP as a background which I also used as a basis for my main colour scheme of Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce and Night of Navy.

I’m spending the afternoon curled up by my fire watching Christmas movies and colouring more elves. Hope you have chance to have some crafty time this weekend.

Christmas Stocking Card

This is another one of those cards that is  quick and simple to put together, so perfect for mass production if you’re running out of time to make your cards.

I’ve used one of the sheets from the Night Before Christmas as a background and also as a basis for my colour scheme. I chose to use Cherry Cobbler, Pretty Peacock and So Saffron with a hint of Mossy Meadow.

A strip of the Pretty Peacock/Old Olive Reversable Ribbon adds a little shimmer to the card and the “Merry Christmas” greeting stamped in Mossy Meadow from the Snowman Season stamp set finishes off the card.
