The cute characters in the Penguin Playmates DSP are adorable but perhaps not the easiest to work with as they do involve some cutting. I love fussy cutting so creating these simple cards have given me a lot of joy to create.
I chose to base my cards around Soft Seaform and Just Jade which are the less prominant colours on these papers. although I’m a big fan of the Misty Moonlight and Fesh Freesia combination.
For this first card I’ve used the Layering Circles dies as a base fot the Polar Bear and Penguin to sit. The greeting is stamped onto a label from the Messages Die and it looks like they were made for each other.
This card featues a whole gang of playmates, I really wanted to add another fox but couldn’t see one facing into the centre of the card to sit on the left.
I thought this cute little chap deserved a card of his own too, so here he is using up a couple of paper scraps.
Which card is your favourite I’d love to know? Have you chosen the Penguin Playmates DSP as your Sale-A-Bration freebie yet? Only one week left until Sale-A-Bration ends this time.
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.
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.
The greeting come from the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set and is the perfect sentiment to capture the magic and sparkle of Christmas.
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.
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.
