Hey Lady! Thank You Card

The Little Ladybug stamp set has to be my favourite from both the Mini Catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration releases. This  stamp set features four of the cutest little ladybirds I think I’ve ever seen along with some lovely greetings. This is a special stamp set as its only available with orders over £275 and until the end of March, so if you like it nows the time to go shopping and pick up those wishlist items.

I started out by stamping and colouring some ladybirds and flowers. the ladybird is coloured with Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends and the flower a mix of Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight and Granny Appple Green.

I created the frame with the Stitched Rectangle Dies and the Poppy Parade Cardstock and Pleased AS Punch DSP. The card base is Balmy Blue and I stamped the large flower across the background in Balmy Blue to add more interest.

For my greetings I used the Special Day Dies to create speach bubbles so it looks as if the Ladybug is talking.

Heal-ium Balloon Get Well Card

Today I’m sharing a quick get well card made using the Special Someone stamp set. I love the cute little animals in this set and can see it being one I use a lot this spring. I used a Whisper White card base with a Bermuda Bay layer measuring 10cm x 14.4cm and a layer of patterned paper from the Birthday Bonanza DSP.

For the stamping I used the Stamparatus to line everything up on my Stitched Rectangle Matt. I used Bermuda Bay, Smokey Slate and Tuxedo Black Memento to stamp the littlr Racoon with his balloon. I hope the recipent will feel better soon.

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!

Ice Skater Birthday Card

The Free Skate Bundel and stamp set may have sold out here in Europe but as the dies are still available (as I write this) I thought I’d share this birthday card I made using them and the Born to Shine stamp set which features ballerina images.

This card is larger than my usual card bases so I could fit the boots and the two ballerina images. I cut a sheet of A4 to 18cm x 21cm  scored in half at 10.5cm. The Rococo Rose layer is 17.5cm x 10cm and the Whisper White layer I stamped on measures 17cm x 9.5cm.

The two ballerina’s were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then colured with Rococo Rose and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. I then added the starry background in Petal Pink.

The skate was made from a Rococo Rose detailed outline and a Sparkle Glimmer paper solid layer which were glued together with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the Skate onto a background of Layered Ovals and then added some Rococo Rose laces and a Rhinestone to finish the card.

I’ve left a greeting off this card as I feel its finished as it is, plus there’s plenty of room inside to say exactly what you want.
