Quick Card with The Gangs All Meer

Just a quick project today to highlight the cute little Meerkat family from The Gangs All Meer stamp set, I love their cheeky little faces.

I’ve gone with a colur scheme of Mango Melody, Pear Pizzazz and Granny Apple Green for my card base. I’ve used a piece of Pear Pizzazz as my background and stamped the little catus plants all over in Granny Apple Green just to give them more pop.

I added a strip of the Textured Weave Ribbon in Granny Apple Green across the top third of my card before adhering my Meerkat circle.

I coloured the Meerkat with Stampin’ Blends in Light Crumb Cake for their tummies and Light Soft Suede for the rest of their bodies. They are stood on a mix of Light Pumkin Pie and Light Mango Melody so it hopefully looks like sand.

This cute little stamp set is available until the end of March as a Sale-A-Bration freebie, so just place an order of £45 or more and you too could be stamping with these cuties.

Christmas Magic Card

This card is the perfect way to add some sparkle to your cards and use up any Christmas paper you might have left. Here I’ve used the bauble pattern from the Night Before Christmas DSP collection, any paper in this pack would work as they’re all festive patterns.

The addition of some Gold Glimmer Paper adds just the right amount of festive sparkle to mkae this card really pop.

Congrats Wreath made from Blended Seasons Bundle

For today’s project I pulled out the Stitched seasons Framelits and had a play cutting out the various shapes. To make the wreath I cut out eight of the leaves in Mint Macaron and five of the small flowers in Blushing Bride. I cut the leaves off the flower dies as I didn’t want pink leaves, not really sure why the flower isn’t a separate die.

To create the background I took some Blushing bride cardstock and stamped the leaves stamp randomly all over in Blushing Bride to give a tone-on-tone look which wasn’t going to detract attention away from my wreath.

To make the wreath a cut a whisper white circle from the 6cm diameter Layering Circles dies and glued onto my card. I cut the berries section off all my leaves and then positioned them all round the circle, overlapping in some areas.

I then added the Congrats banner which was stamped  from the Banner for You stamp set and cut from the Bunch of Banners Framelits. I fixed the banner on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added the flowers around the wreath, tucking a couple under the banner. I added some Rhinestones to the flower centres as a final touch.

Hug in a Mug Hot Chocolate Card

I have a super quick card to share today using the Hug in a Mug stamp set. If you don’t have this set then this design can be very easily changed to suit any image or sentiment that you want to use.

I took a Thick Whisper White card blank made from card measuring 14.5 x 21cm, scored and folded at 10.5cm. I then took a piece of the Quilted Christmas DSP Stack in Real Red and cut a piece 14.5cm x 4.5cm and adhered this to the front of the card using Fast Fuse Adhesive. To finish the basic card I added a strip of Real Red cardstock across the top of the patterned paper.

Next stamp the hot chocolate mug from the Hug in a Mug set onto Whisper White. Use Real Red and Early Expresso ink to add the details. Cut out the image using the Layering Circles Framelits and mount onto a Real Red scalloped circle cut from the same set.

Stamp the sentiment onto the front of the card using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Next take the Versamark ink and the chocolate drop stamp and randomly stamp across the white section of the card, this adds a very subtle detail which I’m not sure is clear in the photos.

To finish the card take the scalloped circle topper and stick to the card using Stampin’ Dimensional’s. Add a little Clear Wink of Stella to add a little sparkle.

Hope you have enjoyed me cards for Cups and Coffee week. Join me tomorrow for another Stampin’ Up! project.

Bee Unique Card for #TGIFC115

Hi Everyone,

This week’s challenge for TGIF Challenges was to use Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide, three colours which I love together. I’ve had this Bee Unique card idea in my head for a while and decided these bright colours would work perfectly with the black be background I wanted to stamp.

After I had stamped out my black bee background it looked a little harsh against my Berry Burst matt and Tranquil Tide card base so I added a layer of vellum over the top.

I then took the Labeller Alphabet stamp set and carefully stamped out BEE Unique to be my greeting.

To finish the card I cut various shape from the May Flowers, Layering Circles and Detailed Dragonflies Thinlits sets, including a Berry Burst bee as a focal point.

To add a little more Lemon Lime Twist and to hold the vellum in place I added a striped punched from the Ticket Tear punch.
