Dino Diecuts Card

The one thing I’ve always loved about Stampin’ Up! is the coordination between products. Most of the time this has been matching colours between cardstock and ink. Since the introduction of pruduct suite where we’ve had stamps, die sets ans even dsp that coordinated the project possibilities are endless and its actually hard to make a bad card.

Some of my favourite coordinating products from this years annual catalogue are products from the Dino Days suite, I love how the die set matches the stamps and even one of patterns on the dsp produces detailed die cut dinosaurs in seconds.

This means when you’ve realised your out of birthday cards for the kids party starting in an hour you dont need to rush to the shops. Just pull out a die cutting machine, the Dino dies and the Dinoroar paper and you can make this card in less than ten minutes. Meaning you’ll have one happy birthday boy and won’t be late to the party.

Christmas Rose Birthday Card Duo

Today I’m sharing these simple cards which have helped bump up my birthday card stash. They took just ten minutes to make each and you could make them in any colour.

Christmas Rose Blueberry Bushell Birthday Card

I chose to use Blueberrry Bushell and Lovely Lipstick for these cards but you could use any colour you like.

To add a little interest I’ve added a strip of the 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon to each card. The greeting comes from the Seaside Notions stamp set and is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Leave A Little Silver Sparkle Card

For today’s project I’ve pulled out the Leave A Little Sparkle stamp set to make a birthday card for a special little girl who loves unicorns and all things sparkly. For the background of this card I stamped the small star trio stamp in the new Silvery Shimmer Delicata Ink which gives the whole card a subtle shimmer which the photograpgh really doesn’t do justice to.

I coloured the main focal image with Stampin’ Blends in Lovely Lipstick, Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry and added some Wink of Stella to the unicorn horn for a bit more sparkle.

Leave A Little Sparkle Card one

A little silver foil adds a final bit of sparkle to this gorgeous girly card. I can see variations of this card made throughout the coming school year for all those upcoming little girl birthdays.

You’re Rawrsome! Dino Days Card

Who doesn’t  love a cute little dinosaur? I love them and have had loads of fun with the Dino Days stamp set creating a rainbow of diffrent coloured dinosaurs. My favourite was a Flirty Flamingo one, but I’m saving that one for another day.

For today’s card I’ve gone for slightly more convensional coloured dinosaurs in Mango Melody and Pretty Peacock…no boring dinos here!

The card was finished off with a strip of paper from the Dinoroar DSP, don’t just think dinosaurs when you see this paper, its bright, fun and super versatile and perfect for any kind of card.

Goodbye…Jar of Sweets

Aww I’m so sad that the Sweetest Thing stamp set and matching dies are leaving us, I’ve had so much fun playing with these and all the co-ordinating products in the How Sweet It Is Suite.

Framed Jar of Sweets birthday Card 1

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:

Painted Seasons Birthday Card

I wanted to share with you another card I’ve made with the Painted Seasons stamp set and matching framelits as this sets will no longer be available after Sunday as March 31st signals the end of this year’s Sale-A-Bration

I chose to use Gorgeous Grape as despite being a purple I haven’t really warmed to this colour yet, I think its because its more on the blue blue side of purple. It’s quite a bright colour when you see a full sheet of cardstock so I’ve toned it done by adding a vellum layer. The fancy edge at the bottom is cut using the Delicate Lace Egelits Dies which I think really adds a wow to this card.

The greeting comes from the More Than Word stamp set which has sentiments to co-ordinate with many of our Sale-A-Bration sets, this will also be gone after Sunday ao grab it while you can as it has a lovely mix of fonts. I stamped the greeting on a frame from the Stitched Label Framelits as I thought the edge work well with the lacy die.

Painted Seasons Birthday Card 1

To finish the card I added some leaves and one of those gorgeous flowers from the Painted Leaves stamp set, every time I stamp this flower I’m amazed by how much detail there is in just one stamp, its stunning!!

Geared Up Garage Birthday Card

Male cards are renowned for being tricky to make, particulary in my family I find as apart from working, driving or football nothing much is of interest. Thats why I love the Geared Up Garage suite of products as pretty much any male I know loves cars and driving so all the car themed mechanic images work wonderful for those tricky make birthdays.

Geared Up Garage Birthday Card -flat

By using the Classic Garage  6″ x 6″ DSP Stack this card pretty much made itself. I chose two different patterns to split the card up, the ribbon adds a line of definition between them and helped to line up my Happy Birthday sentiment perfectly. The ribbon I used was some retired Real Red Grosgrain but this could easily be swapped for the 3/8″ Cotton Ribbon in the Annual Catalogue.

Geared Up Garage Birthday card - inside

To decorate the inside of the card I added a matching sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set and added some more nuts to the corners of the card in Basic Grey.

Hope this male card has given you a starting point for using the Geared Up Garage Suite of products.
