A Big Thank You Trio

I’m re-visting my favourite suite in the catalogue today the Share What You Love Suite and I do love it all. I’m pairing it with the A Big Thank You stamp set which has some lovely greetings which I think work really well with the gorgeous paper and embellishments in the Share What You Love Suite.

I’m sharing just three cards today but I have a couple more which I’ll share later in the month.  So here’s the first one:

A Big Thank You Trio - card 1

Along with this gorgeous floral paper I added some of the Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon, some of the Artisan Pearls and the frame on which I stamped the greeting comes from the Share What You Embellishment kit which features die-cut frames, twine, mini paper-clips and some gorgeous silver flower embellishments which you’ll see on the last card.

For this second card I fussy card some of the large flowers from one of the other sheets of paper. It doesn’t show too well on the photograph but these flowers are pearlescent so look stunning in real life and I also added a few loops of the Tranquil tide bakers twne from the embellishment kit because….well why not!

A Big thank You - card 3

The third card uses another of the die-cut frames and those gorgeous silver roses to add a finishing touch. All these cards were very quick and easy to make and I think they all look stunning.

Powder Pink Parcel Birthday Card

When I started making this card it was going to be similar to the sample on page 16 of the Spring/Summer catalogue but I was going to swap the black diecut for Silver Foil. I couldn’t find my Silver Foil so used Champagne Foil instead and ended up with this card.

I’d forgotten how much I love the Champagne Foil, it really does add a wow factor to your project and I think it looks gorgeous with my favourite In-Colours Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Tranquil Tide and Fresh Fig.

Powder Pink Parcel Birthday Card - flat

To make the different coloured parcels I simply placed small pieces of cardstock behind the foil die cut and secured them with some Tear “n” Tape, you could use your markers to colour in each different section.

Hope you can join me again for another project tomorrow.

Sympathy Card with Dear Doily

Today I’m sharing a sympathy card which is one of those projects I’m not keen on making as it usually means someone I love is hurting.  This card was very much inspired by the samples in the Spring/Summer catalogue on page 47, as you can see I’ve used elements from all three cards to create my own version.

I’ve stuck to using just Balmy Blue with just a hint of Pear Pizzazz, by using the cardstock, ink and Stampin’ Marker you can have three variations of the same colour which match perfectly creating a gorgeous card.

Sympathy Card with Dear Doily - flat

To attach the doily frame I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets which I think are a must when using delicate die-cuts like this frame. I added a little bow of Linen Thread just to add a little rustic touch.

I’m gutted this set isn’t carrying over into the new catalogue as its one of my favourites from the Spring/Summer catlogue, the possibilities with it are endless. If you’re in Europe I suggest you grab it while you can.

Jar of Love – Best Fishes Card

I haven’t made many blue cards recently so decided to use Blueberry Bushel and Pool Party as a base for todays card. I pulled out Jar of Love which is one of my oldest stamp sets but also one of my most unused sets, I just find it hard work. Any ideas greatly appreciated!

Anyway I decided to use the little fish stamp and create an underwater type card. For the background I ran the Dot to Dot Textured Impressions folder through the Big Shot with some Pool Party cardstock, I love how this created a bubbly background.

Jar of Love - Best Fishes card flat

 

For the centre of the card I stamped out the fishes in Pumpkin Pie and then cut masks out of post-it notes with the matching die from the Everyday Jars Framelits.  I’d stamp and cut out three fish before I realised I didn’t need the stamping on the post-it notes, oops!!

After covering all the fish with their little masks I sponged over a layer of Pool Party ink. I added a little greeting with the Classic Label punch and dave one fish some dimension with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

For a final touch  I added three little dots of the Fine-Tip glue nest to each fish which when complely dried looked like bubbles coming out of the fish, sadly these don’t show on the photos.

I’d love to see your creations with this stamp set as its one I struggle with.

Meant to Be Engagement Card

So yesterday I had the fabulous news that one of my cousins has got engaged so I decided to make a card for her and her fiancé. I wanted to go for a romantic vintage feel se chose a colour scheme of Powder Pink, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla and paired them with the Meant to Be Bundle.

To create the background a stamped the circle pattern from Graceful Garden in Crumb Cake across two corners of the card. I then ran that through the Big shot in the Subtles Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder to give a worn look. A little sponged Crumb Cake around the edges adds to the vintage feel.

Meant to Be card flat

 

For the main focus of the card I cut some heart from the Be Mine Thinlits in Powder Pink and in Very Vanilla. I stamped the greeting Meant to Be from the stamp set in Crumb Cake and finished the card off with one of the tiny Heart Epoxy Droplets.

I love how this turned out and hope my cousin likes it too.
