Today I’m sharing three cards made using the Rainbow of Happiness bundle and the Sunshine and Rainbows Designer Paper, which is currently free with a £45/€60 order.
Theses products are full of bright bold patterns and fun sentiments which can’t help but make you smile.
For this first card I cut one of the rainbows out from the paper as a focal point and used a strip of the rainbow paper as a base. I also die cut nine clouds from Shimmery white cardstock. Before I adhered everything to my card I did some stamping. I stamped the tiny lines stamp all over in Pool Party to give a tone on tone effect. I then stamped my greeting before adhering everything to the card.
This card has used the dies to create a rainbow from the designer paper. I adhered the whole 6 x 6 sheet to multipurpose adhesive sheets before cutting so they are easy to stick to any card. As the stamp for the sentiment is photopolymer I was able to manipulate it to form a curve around the rainbow.
This third card uses up my remaining piece from the designer paper but you could swap for any of the other patterns.
I love the inlay technique so as soon as I recieved the Bright Baubles set I knew that exactly what the first card would entail. Using the mulitpurpose adhesive sheets makes this an easy card to make as you simply run the die through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss one time for every colur you want to use.
I cut the main outline of the Bauble out of Shimmery White cardstock and then ran it through again with Mossy Meadow, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight for the star at the top.
I matted some of this Pear Pizzazz pattern from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP onto a layer of Mossy Meadow and on a Poppy Parade cardstock. I added a sentiment from the Bright Baubles onto some Shimmery White cardstock at the bottom of the card. As a final touch I added some of the Red Rhinestones as babules on the tree.
I love how this card turned out and hope to use the other baubles in the set soon and the same techinique soon.
Who remembers the Baby Shark song from a few years ago? My daughter still loves it so when Shark Frenzy was in the Mini Catalogue I knew I had to buy it for her. She’s loved making little sharks and having a good sing song with herself….I can’t stand the song myself!
I’ve made her this card to give to her dad on Sunday as he still indulges her singing.
I used a Basic White Card Base and added some colour with Pool Party Ink using a Blending Brush.
On seperate cardstock I stamped the baby shark and the bigger shark. The baby shark is filled with second generation Misty Moonlight ink and the bigger shark is filled with second generation Grey Granite. As this card is from my daughter I added a pink bow to the baby Shark.
I then stamped the “daddy” at the top left of the card and the “I Love You! ” in the bottom right corner both in Coastal Cabana.
I then diecut some reeds in Shaded Spruce and some bubbles in Coastal Cabana, the multi purpose adhesive sheets are a must for me when working with these small detailed dies as they make adhering to the card so easy.
The Shark Frenzy stamp set and matching dies are on the LastChance list for the January to June Mini Catalogue, so if you want them there is only a few days left to purchase.
Today I’m sharing a card I’ve made for a special friend who I miss very much, I haven’t seen her since July last year and fingers crossed we can see each other soon!!
I’ve gone chick mad and used products from both Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick stamp sets and their matching dies and why not they all work great togther. I’ve used my favourite two chicken stamps, one from each set for my main focus.
A little blending of Balmy Blue and So Saffron created the background for my little scene. The fence die cuts come from the Birthday Chick die set.
For the grass and the little speech bubbles I pulled out the Special Day dies, which also work great for scene building.
The greeting comes from Hey, Chick and also Blossoms in Bloom where I used “Miss You” from the stamp “Sure Do Miss You” I just covered up Sure do while I inked as the whole lot wouldn’t fit in my speech bubble.
I loved making this little scene card and hope my friend does when I get it mailed out to her.
I love the Come to Gather Suite of products as soon as I saw them its definitely my favourite Autumn themed suite for many years, mainly because the papers include Pretty Peacock. I think this is a bold choice for an autumnal themed collection but it really works with the Cajun Crze, Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron.
I knew as soon as I got these product home I’d create a card which featured Pretty Peacock Foil die cut leaves and these turned out even more gorgeous than I expected. To create some more interest I cut some more leaves in Pretty Peacock cardstock. A little tip I’ve picked up from other demonstrators if you spray the card before you die cut the leaves you will get a two-tone effect, no idea why this work but Ilove them.
For some additional texture to my leafy arrangement I added some of the foiliage from the Frosted Frames dies in Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake. These are all secrured using glue dots as I didn’t want to move my leaves after I’d got the arrangement how I like.
The “Wishing You Well” greeting makes this card suitable for many occasions or to simply just send to someone to say “Hi” which is exactly what I’m going to do as this week is World Card Sending week. Why don’t you join in and send some random cards yourself.
