Today I’m sharing this bright and cheery birthday card made with the Bonanza Buddies stamp and die bundle and the matching Birthday Bonanza Designer Paper. I love the cute little characters these stamps and dies create, perfect for any kids birthday big or small.
I’ve used Bermuda Bay as my card base as I think its highlights how bright and fun the birthday parcel ppaer is from the Birthday Bonanza DSP. I added a little of ther Ruched Daffodil Delight Ribbon across my DSP before adhering to the card to add a little texture.
The Koala and Lion were stamped and then die cut. I love how the lions mane and tail end are on one stamp and die set so they line up perfectly. The Koala was stamped in Gray Granite and the Lion in Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody. The die cut balloons were stamped in Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay and Terracotta Tile.
To decorate the inside I added a row of Terracotta Tile birthday presents along the bottom of the card.
For this card I stuck to the colour scheme which matched the DSP but you could use any of our colours to make wonderful birthday cards.
I don’t know about you but I’m longing for Spring to arrive and for us to have more than a peep of sunshine. So today I’m sharing with you a card which I think just oozes spring with the fresh bright colour combination of Daffodil Delight and Lemon Lime Twist. I’ve paired this combination with the Fable Friends stamp set, mainly because it has the sentiment Happy Spring and thats what I’m wanting.
How cute is this little guy with his sunflower, he was a joy to colour with the Stampin’ Blends. I love how his tail turned out with a mix of flecks in Crumb Cake and Cajun and Craze and isn’t Balmy Blue a perfect match for that famous Beatrix Potter blue.
To finish the card I added a strip of an old favourite the Double Stitched Daffodil Delight Ribbon which has a different stitched effect on each side of the ribbon, today I’ve gone with the cross but the dashes are just as lovely.
Today’s card is much more suited to a spring day and not the middle of summer but I thought I’d share anyway. I coloured the daffodil image in ages ago, probably in the spring and I thought it was time it made its way onto a card. When I saw the new 6×6″ Designer Series Paper Stacks in the new colour collections I knew I had the perfect background.
I’ve left this card with no greeting as nothing seemed to fit how I wanted it too and to be honest sometimes its nice to have some blank cards ready to just send a quick not to someone.
Hope you like my simple project today.
