September Customer Thank You Cards: Rainbow Blends

For my September customer cards I wanted to create so colourful rainbow cards so I got colouring with my Stampin’ Blends to create a background.  I used seven of the dark Stampin’ Blends in Real Red, Pumpkin pie, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, Night of Navy and Blackberry Bliss to colour stripes to create my background.

To finish off the card I cut out the Thank You Thinlit in Shimmery white cardstock and added some punched out some stars from the Twinkle Builder punch to embellish.

For my second card I switched things around and cut my “Thank You”  and gthe stars from some coloured cardstock and stuck onto a white card base.

The best adhesive I’ve found for using these large delicate die cuts is the multipurpose adhesive sheets as no adhesive is shown, but be careful when placing your die cut as when they’re stuck down there’s no moving them.

I love how simple and bright these cards are, they could easily be turned into birthday cards using the Happy Birthday Thinlit die, you could also change up the colours to match any theme you like.

August Customer Thank You Cards with Falling For Leaves

For today’s project I have my August customer thank you cards which you should have all received (hopefully as I gave them to hubby to post, fingers crossed). They are very simple cards which did take a little time to make as there is lot of colouring involved in each card.

I stamped the large maple leaf from Falling for Leaves in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and then coloured with Stampin’ Blends. The edges used Black Bliss with the centres in Mint Macaron and the remaining details were coloured with Light Pumpkin Pie which looks similar to Grapefruit Grove which is the colour I wanted to use.

After mounting on some Blackberry Bliss card the main card is finished. I stamped the lovely sentiment from the same set onto the second largest set of dies from the Layering Circles Framelits in Blackberry Bliss. Simple cards that were a joy to create.

Simple Thank You Car with the Share What You Love Suite

I’m loving playing with the Share What You Love Suite of products which is currently available as three bundles. This card features products from the biggest bundle the Gotta Have It All Bundle which includes my newest favourite paper pack the Share What You Love Speciality Paper. Here’s a look at my card:

Share What You Love gotta have it all bundle

The beautiful paper doesn’t need much adding to it to make a great card so I just stamped a simple panel with the largest floral stamp from the Love What You Do stamp set in Rich Razzleberry. I added a little texture to the card with the new Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon which is so soft to touch.

Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project.

Daisy Delight 3 x 3 Notecard Set

Today I’ve made a set of six 3″ x 3″ notecards featuring the Daisy Delight set and the Wood Words set, both of these sets are currently 15% off in the World Card Making Day Sale.  The notecards are perfectly sized to coordinate with the mini envelopes and mini pizza boxes in the Autumn/Winter catalogue.

First I took Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Old Olive and made card bases measuring 3″ x  6″, scored at 3″. I made two of each colour. Next I took the Delightful Daisy DSP paper and cut matching squares measuring 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″, after inking around the edges in Daffodil Delight I adhered then to the front of my cards with Fast Fuse adhesive.  Continue reading “Daisy Delight 3 x 3 Notecard Set”

Pastel “Thanks a Latte” Card

Today I’m back with another card using the Hug in a Mug stamp set making a very girly pastel card using Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum, and Pool Party, if we still had Mint Macaron then I would have used that too!

First take a piece of Powder Pink cardstock measuring 14.5cm x 21cm and fold and score at 10.5cm to create a card base. Take the Powder Pink ink and randomly stamp the small twinkling star all over the front of the card base.  Continue reading “Pastel “Thanks a Latte” Card”

Dragonfly Dreams Meets Star of Light

Hi Everyone,

If your anything like me then you are always looking for new ways to use stamp sets, I think this is particularly true for the Christmas themed sets which don’t get all year round use. Star of Light is a great example of a Christmas themed stamp set which can easily be used anytime of year and stars are a fairly versatile image.

For today’s card I took the large swirl stamp which is my favourite from this set and combined it with stamps from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.

Here is the card I came up with:

I chose to use Smoky Slate for the swirls and the little stars, which also come from the Star of Light set as I wanted to keep the background fairly pale.

I stamped the dragonfly wings with Wisteria Wonder and then stamped the whole dragonfly outline in Perfect Plum.

I added a greeting in the bottom left corner in Perfect Plum again and the card is done, quick simple and lovely.

Hope you like this card, do you have any more ideas for the Star of Light set?

Pink Paisley Thank You Card

Hi Everyone,

Sorry for being missing for over a week, I was enjoying being in my garden last week while we had some sunshine so didn’t get much crafting done, I do have some lovely tomato’s ready though!

For today’s card I pulled out the Paisleys & Posies stamp and die set as its been months since them have been used.  After a few disasters I came up with this card.

pinkpaisleythankyou

As you can see I went for a colour combination of Melon Mambo, Pool Party and Powder Pink. After initially being unsure about Powder Pink its a colour I’m starting to love and is becoming my favourite pale pink.

I coloured the paisley circles using my markers which needed to be re-inked ( first time since I’ve had them five years ago), which took a bit of time but was quite relaxing, especially when the results turned out so well.

I used the little flower stamp to create more of a background and added a sentiment from One Big Meaning which was stamped on an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits.

I finished the card off with a little Pool Party twine to bring out this colour on the card.
