Goodbye….Foxy Friends

So today I’m saying goodbye to Foxy Friends and the Foxy Builder punch, its one that I don’t think is totally my style, but my five year old daughter has had loads of fun with it so its not one I’ll be saying goodbye too just yet.

This card came together very quickly with the help of some pos-it notes to mask off some of my background trees.  The little fox was stamped and the punched out with the punch but with the racoon I fussy cut him to show they are quite easy images to cut so you can layer up a little scene.

I’ve left this card without a greeting as think it could be suitable for many occassions

If you love this set then I suggest a look over on Pintrest, there are loads of great ideas for many different little critters which people have created.

St. Patrick’s Day Card Duo

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, hope you all have a lucky day! I’m passing on the good luck by sharing this card duo I made with the Amazing Life stamp set and the brand new Sale-A-Bration Co-ordination Storybook Punch….gosh thats a mouthful!

Celebrating all things Irish i’m using a mix of Call Me Clover and Granny Apple Green for colouring the shamrocks from the Amazing Life stamp set. I used the Stampin’ Blends for the colouring which did take me a whole evening but it was a very relaxing one.

St Patricks Day card 1

For this first card I covered my whole background in the stamped and coloured shamrocks. I used the Good Luck greeting from Amazing Life and stamped it in Call Me Clover. I punched the greeting out with the Storybook punch and then punched out an additional shape in Call Me Clover cardstock, cut in half this makes the perfect border to lift the greeting punch. To finish this card I added three of the enamel dots from the Happiness Blooms collection.

For the second card I added a strip of the Call Me Clover polka dot paper from the 2018 – 2020 In-Colour DSP stack to the bottom of the card and seperated this from my stamping with a strip of Granny Apple Green cardstock.

Hope you’ve enjoyed todays projects and join me again tomorrow for some more Stampin’ Up! inspiration.

Pop of Petals Floral Trio Birthday Card

Can you believe I’ve had the Pop of Petals stamp set and matching Four-Petal Flower Punch and they’ve not been used, shocking right? So today’s the day I inked it up and created the simple but stunning birthday card.

Three stamped and punched flowers in Berry Burst and a little foliage stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and you have the main part of the card.

Next simply add your chosen greeting to the centre of the stamping, my sentiment came from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set, then you have an almost complete card.

To finish the card I added a large Gold Facet Gem to the centre of each flower, aren’t they just the perfect fit?

Pootler’s Team Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

Today I’m hopping again with my fellow team mates the Pootler’s and this time we’re featuring projects made using products from the new Sale-A-Bration Brochure. These are exclusive products which are only available free with a purchase of £45 or above until the end of March.

On my card today I’m featuring three of my favourite products from the brochure, the So Hoppy Together stamp set, the Lovely Lipstick Foil card and the Botanical Butterfly DSP which compliments the Gingham Gala Suite in the Spring/Summer catalogue.

So here’s my card, how cute is that little frog? I knew as soon as I saw this set he would be perfect for a Valentine’s card and if you wanted to make him a her just add some eyelashes with a Stampin’ Marker.

Here’s a close up of the frog coloured in Call Me Clover, Granny Apple Green and Pineapple Pucker Stampin’ Blends. The hearts he’s sitting on came from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits which is part of the All My Love Suite. I added some adhesive sheets to some of the Lipstick Foil and some Whisper White card stock and ran them both through the Big Shot with the die. I used the Foil piece as my outline and then once stuck to my card used the hearts form the Whisper White piece to fill the gaps, with the help of the Take Your Pick tool of course!

I’m hoping I can stock up on the Botanical Butterfly DSP before it sells out because I just adore that black gingham paper and want loads of it.

If you’ve enjoyed today’s project I’d love it if you could visit the rest of my team mates on the blog hop. Just click the blue button below to see a full list to follow.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Merry Mistletoe Christmas Card with Buffalo Check

Today’s project has been brewing in my head ever since I saw the Buffalo Check stamp, its pattern is very similar to one in the Under the Mistletoe DSP pack, so I decided to use it as a background for this simple Mistletoe card.

The Mistletoe Season stamp set is the perfect one for beginners and avid crafters alike to use as there are so many gorgeous combinations you can come up with. I’ve used the two mistletoe sprigs for the main focal point of this card. These are two-step stamps with a difference, they don’t completely line up, making them a great starting point for beginners.

I stamped my outline mistletoe in Pear Pizzazz and then took the filler stamp, inked with Pear Pizzazz again but stamped off on scrap paper before stamping on my image. I love how the two-tone image gives the card some depth.

A simple bow stamped in Real Red finishes off the main image. As mentioned above my background was created with the Buffalo Check stamp again with Pear Pizzazz. The Merry Christmas greeting in the bottom corner adds a greeting. To finish the card I added three clusters of the white enamel dots in the Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes to perfectly replicate mistletoe berries.  A simple card which is quick and easy to replicate for those last minute cards you need to make.

Champagne Shimmer Snowflake Card

The pictures of today’s project don’t really do it justice as you can’t appreciate the gorgeous shimmer of the Champagne Foil layer and the stamping is done with Champagne Frost Shimmer paint.

Stamping with the Shimmer Paint is easy, just shake your bottle well then pour a little paint out onto a clear block and use  a stamping sponge or a sponge dauber to apply to your stamp and then stamp. The images I’ve gotten haven’t been as crisp as they are with our normal inks but I love the effect they create. I used very detailed stamps on this project, a better result might be gained from more solid images.

The combination of Night of Navy gives these cards a very majestic feel which I think is perfect for Christmas cards.  Have you had a go with stamping with the Shimmer Paint? If not I suggest you do as I love the shimmery effect it creates.
