This pair of cards are made completely with die cuts and no stamps. I’ve paired the Jar of Sweets Framelits with the Happy Birthday Thinlits and the gorgeous free foil from Sale-A-Bration to make these stunning cards.
Firstly I cut my foil matt layer and then adhered it to a sheet of the Multi Purpose Adhesive Sheets, this makes sticking intricate die-cuts like the Happy Birthday Thinlits much easier than using other adhesives.
I cut all the shapes from my adhesive foil so I only used a piece 14cm x 10cm for each card.
I mixed and matched the two colours of foil between the two cards, for an additional finishing touch I added some of the Grapefruit Grove Adhesive Backed sequins from the Gingham Gala pack.
I really love how these cards have turned out, the Grapefruit Grove Foil is stunning when the light catches it and makes it look iridescent. It’s free with any order over £45.00 and I think worth placing the order if you want cards with a bit of Wow Factor.
Today’s card is focusing on the How Sweet It Is DSP and matching Jar of Sweets Framelits. I love that with these Framelits the jars were easy to cut out and then this card came together in a matter of minutes. If you prefer to stamp your own jars of sweets the Framelits match the stamps too so you can pick and mix to your hearts content.
I adhered my jars with Multipurpose liquid glue but you could add extra dimension by using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A few strips DSP create the background and the stamped and die cut label adds a greeting.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this bright fun birthday card which I think would work well whoever the sender.
I don’t know about you but as soon as I started using the Sweetest Thing stamp set one of the sweet stamps reminded me of marshmallows. How about you? I know they could also be Midget Gems of Jelly Tots here in the UK, I’d love to know what this cute little stamp reminds you of?
With marshmallows on the brain it was only natural to think hot chocolate and to pull out the Coffee Cafe stamp set and matching dies to make my marshmallow inspired card.
The background was created by randomly stamping those cute little marshmallows all over and then I coloured some in Dark Flirty Flamingo with the Stampin’ Blends to represent the pink ones which are a firm favourite in our house.
A little stamping and die-cutting and my hot chocolate cup was created along with a big dollop of cream and a straw in case you don’t want a creamy mustache.
To finish the card a matted my hot chocolate cup onto and oval layer to help it stand out from my marshmallow covered background and then added some of the Stitch Edge Lovely Lipstick ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo pack to add a pop of colour.
I hope you like today cards and I don’t know about you but now I’m off to make my own mug of hot chocolate and yes there will be marshmallows too!
