Treat Yourself Lollipop Card

The Ice Cream Corner Suite is my favourite from the January to June Mini Catalogue, I love all the bright fun colours and who doesn’t love ice-cream! The paper is my favourite part of this suite and I’d love to hoard packs and packs of it but think hubby would get annoyed. Each sheet is full of colour and will definitely make you smile.

For this card I’ve used my very favourite sheet with the multi-coloured ice-cream cones and matted it on Blackberry Bliss to really make it “pop”.

I’ve stamped a couple of lollipops to add as a focal point. These are made with two stamps, for the tops I’ve used second generation stamping to get a lighter colour. So my lollipops are probably your normal Strawberry and Blur Raspeberry. But you can mix up the colours to make any flavour you like, Granny Apple Green and Magenta Madness anyone?

I’ve finished the card off with a touch of the Blackberry Bliss Striped Ribbon. I love how this is see-through so you can see even more yummy ice-creams peeping through.

Magenta Madness Ice Cream Scoop Card

We’ve just had two days of glorious sunshine here in the UK which made me think ice creams outside might be a possibility over the Easter weekend. Sadly this is England so sunny periods are short lived and we’re back to wooly jumpers and cocoa beside the fire.

Anyway thought I’d still share this bright cheery ice-cream card and we can all keep our fingers crossed the sunshine makes an appearance again soon. I chose to Magenta Madness as my background colour as I think its the brightness most fun colour we have. I’ve paired that with Early Espresso and Mint Macaron to emphasize the ice-cream theme.

I used the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set to stamp my ice cream scoops and cone and the matching Ice cream Builder Punch to punch out. Then simply build your ice cream however you want, mines got Chocolate, Stawberry and Mint with Chocolate Sprinkles!

The greeting was stamped on spare cardstock in Early Espresso and fussy cut out, I’m new to fussy cutting words so I’m not 100% happy with the result but practise makes perfect. A few Magenta Madness Enamel Dots finish off the card.

Pastel Prettiest of Birthdays Card

It’s the pastel shades of Soft Sea Foam and Flirty Flamingo for today’s card made with the Prettiest of Birthdays stamp and die set. From banners and balloons to cake and flowers this set has a whole host of images suitable for the prettiest of birthday cards.

I’ve just used the cake image today to create this soft feminine birthday card. The background is created with a layer of Soft Sea Foam which has been run through the Tasteful Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I’ve then used one of the Square Vellum Dolies coloured Flirty Flamingo by using the new Blending Brushes from our current Mini catalogue.

I’ve added the cake image, cut the stand part off as it didn’t look quite right. I’ve fussy cut some extra flowers from the cake image to balance my card out across the sentiment label.

5 Year Stampin’ Up! Anniversary Card

Today its 5 years since I signed up with Stampin’ Up! So it’s the perfect opportunity to share a bright fun birthday card using one of my favourite Stampin’ Up! products, Stampin’ Blends!!

I don’t think there’s a day gone by where I haven’t coloured something with these pens, I love them so much.

Today’s card is made from the Prettiest of Birthdays stamp set, most of the samples I’ve seen using this set have been very pastel based and feminine, so today I’ve gone bright.

The colours I’ve used are Misty Moonlight, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight and although its still a more feminine colour scheme you could eaily swap out Magenta Madness for Poppy Parade or Real Red and it would work just as well.

To celebrate my 5 years with Stampin’ Up! I’m offering anyone who places a £50 or more order with me between now and April 4th 2021 using the hostess code WYTXZMXY a special gift. Special gifts are from me only and not endorsed by Stampin’ Up!

Black Brick Butterfly Card

Black Brick Butterfly….try saying that really fast! There isnt even any black bricks on this card as they’re pink but I liked the title. Again I’ve been playing with the Brilliant Wings Dies, my new favourite product for sure. Today I’ve used the brick effect die (hence the title) to create part of my background. Ilove how you can see the mix of watercolour pinks through the bricks from the designer paper behind.

Here’s a close up of how much detail the large butterfly has, so beautiful! I’ve sat the butterfly on a Stitched Circle die in Blushing Bride and added the Happy Birthday greeting from Speacial Someone in Magenta Madness.

A few Magenta Madness Enamel Dots finish the card off, I seem to be putting these on every card I make at the moment.
