Simple Stamping – Butterfly Gala and Touches of Textures

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.

For this card I added the Rectangle Stitched Dies to create a background and a frame and then added a few die-cut jars and a simple greeting in the corner.

Here are a couple more of my favourite projects with this bundle:

Bella and Balloon Card

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.

Hope you’ve all has a lovely Easter weekend and enjoy this gorgoeus Bank Holiday sun.

Blueberry Bushell Balloon Birthday Card

I’m so so sad that the Happy Birthday Die is retiring, this is hands down my most used die, its so perfect for quick and gorgeous birthday cards. If you just buy one thing off the retiring list then make this the product, I think its a must have and will never part with mine.

For this quick birthday card I used the Best Route DSp as inspiration for a colour palette taking Blueberry Bushell as my main colour, the perfect boy birthday blue in my opinion and mixed it with some Mango Melody and Call Me Clover.

I finished the card off with some balloons from Birthday Banners another stamp set which is leaving us at the end of May.

This card is for my godson who is ten tomorrow, I hope he likes it.

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.
