Congratulations Card with Born to be Loved

Today’s card is showcasing three products which are retiring, two of which are low in stock so if you want them don’t wait. These products are the Born to be Loved stamp set, the Bundle of Joy Speciality DSP and the Sweet & Sassy Framelits which I’m surprised are retiring as I consider them a crafting staple.

Anyway here’s the card I came up, a very simple design which highlights these beautiful products.

I love the mix and Gold and Very Vanilla and think this card could work for many occasions including Weddings, Anniversaries, Engagements and new baby cards.

The heart stamp in the catalogue had the sentiment “Born to be Loved” on it which I didn’t want to use so I simply covered it up with some short strips of washi tape. I then inked the whole image with Versamark ink and then removed the washi carefully before stamping, leaving just the gorgeous border to be embossed.

I also embossed the “Congratulations” in gold to match the rest of the colour scheme, this greeting came from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set, which I’m so pleased is staying around for the next catalogue as its one of my favourites.

Beautiful Butterfly Birthday Card

For today’s card I pulled out two of my favourite stamp sets from the annual catalogue Butterfly Basics and Touches of Texture which I think sometimes get neglected at this time of year when we have a new catalogue full of goodies to play with. Touches of Texture is one of our more expensive sets so its perfect one to add to your starter kit as one of the two extra stamp sets you get for Sale-A-Bration.

I wanted a vintage feeling card so went with a colour scheme of Crumb cake, Blushing Bride, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.

One of my favourite stamps from these two sets is the big splotch stamp from Touches of Texture, its a great one for creating a quick stamped background.

To finish the card I added  the smaller detailed butterfly from the Butterflies Thinlits die set.

Here’s a look at the inside, where I have just added a little fern detail to one corner.

I’m Back… to Party with the Pandas

So if you’re a regular visitor to my blog you may have noticed that I’ve been away for the past couple of months, life got in the way and crafting had to take a back seat but I’m back now and ready to share plenty more crafty ideas with you all.

So today I’m sharing a quick and easy birthday card I made with the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Party Pandas, one of my favourites from this years selection.

partypandarazzleberry

I used a Rich Razzleberry card base with a layer of patterned paper from the Tutti-frutti 6 x 6 dsp pack. This is a great paper pack as there are so many colours included with lovely cheerful patterns on one side and fruity patterns on the other. I have to be honest I’m not a fan of the fruit sides but the others I just love as they are so versatile.

I stamped the cute little panda on a Whisper White oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits and matted on a larger scalloped one in Rich Razzleberry. I stamped the balloon on a scrap piece of the tutti-frutti paper and fussy cut it out to give the panda his balloon to pop over the layers.  I added a banner greeting stamped from the Birthday Banners stamp set and cut out with the Bunch of Banners Framelits.

And here’s a look at the inside, where I stamped a couple of the panda’s balloon’s in the corner and coloured them with the Rich Razzleberry and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends.

Hope you enjoyed today’s project and if you would like the Party Panda stamp set then just place an order of £45.00 or more before the end of the month and you can choose it as your Sale-A-Bration freebie.

Pootler’s Team Spring/Summer Catalogue Blog Hop

Pootlers blog hop - header

Welcome to another Pootles Team Blog Hop, this time my fellow team-mates and I are showcasing some of our favourite products from the new Spring/Summer 2018 Catalogue, to follow along with the hop just click on the blue button at the end of this post.

Today I’ve chosen to focus on the Petal Passion Suite as I just love the hand drawn water coloured effect these products give your projects. I’ve created three different cards which all use the “Thank You” sentiment from the Petal Palette stamp set , pairing it with various other products in the suite.

petalpaleete3

My first card featured a background created from a piece of the Petal Passion DSP and a couple of die cuts. The sentiment was stamped on the largest square from the Stitched Shape Framelits . The stamped rose has also been die cut using the Petal & More Thinlits Dies and I’m so thankful for that die as I just love this image and know my fussy cutting skills are nowhere near that good!

For the second card I chose to use the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Folders as I tend to forget about my embossing folders and these two really are gorgeous.  The lovely vine effect created on this card perfectly matches the paper from the first card. I love how simply switching the background and the shape the sentiment on has created such a different looking card.

For my final card I wanted to highlight another piece of paper from the Petal Passion DSP, this floral one is my favourite from the pack. With some quick colouring using some Stampin’ Blends and you have a fabulous card.

There are many more gorgeous stamp and die combinations in this suite which I can’t wait to show you in future posts.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope to you’ll follow on with the blog hop by using  the blue button below to see all the wonderful projects from the rest of the Pootler’s Team.

Pootler’s Design Team – The Little Things Week Five

14088395_10153745365531603_281310922678395855_n

Today’s its my final project working with The Little Things stamp set for the Pootler’s Design Team. I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank the awesome Sam Hammond at http://www.pootles.co.uk for organising the design team and giving some of us the chance to be featured on her blog. I’ve had a great time working with this stamp set and can see those little gingerbread men featuring heavily on my Christmas cards this year.

Talking of the cute little gingerbread man he’s making one final appearance this week along with his big brother from Cookie Cutter Christmas.

pdt - the littlethings week 5-2

The card base was made from a piece of Cherry Cobbler 12″ x 12″ card measuring 6″ by 12″ and is scored at 4″, 8″ and 10″. Fold the card to make two mountains. Take two pieces of Whisper White cardstock one measuring 3 7/8″ by 5 7/8″ and one 1 7/8″ by 5 7/8″ and randomly stamp the tiny gingerbread man and the star from The Little Things all over.

Next stamp two gingerbread men from Cookie Cutter Christmas in Crumb Cake and punch out with the Cookie Cutter Builder punch. Also punch two bows in Cherry Cobbler. Adhere the bows to the gingerbread men and cover the buttons with the smallest gold enamel dots from the Metallic Enamel Shapes.

pdt-the little things week5-1

For the greeting stamp the Made Extra Special stamp from The Little Things and cut out with the second largest oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits. Cut a corresponding scalloped oval out of Cherry Cobbler.

To finish the card fold both sections flat the run Fast Fuse adhesive along the top of the Scalloped Oval, stick into the centre of the card overlapping the front panel with the in-glued half of the oval. Add the two gingerbread men to each side of the oval on the bottom section with glue just on the bodies. Finish the card with a Gold Enamel star in the centre of the greeting.

Hope you enjoyed my last project featuring The Little Things, next week a different team will take over with a new stamp set so go check them out at http://www.pootles.co.uk
