Niece’s Birthday card with Piece of Cake

My project today features a birthday card for my Niece’s birthday yesterday. Hope she liked it. I chose the background paper from How Sweet It Is Designer Paper as it reminded me of her sweet and bubbly nature.

The main image comes from the Piece of Cake stamp set and is stamped on a Whisper White punch out of the Starburst Punch, I’m not entirely convinced I got this part of the card just right as the candle don’t look right to me.

I grounded my birthday cake image by using a banner from the Bunch of Banners Framelits and to finish the card I added some of the Clear Faceted Gems which I coloured Lovely Lipstick using a Stampin’ Blends Marker.

Hope you enjoyed today’s project and join me again soon.

Forever Lovely Valentine’s Card Duo

I’m getting all loved up with the Forever Lovely stamp set today and sharing with you two Valentine’s cards which I’ve made.

I chose a colour scheme of Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick which are all colours from the coordinating All My Love DSP.

Firstly I took out my Big shot and cut out seven of the 3cm squares in whisper white and then seven scalloped squares in Lovely Lipstick. I stamped hearts in Flirty Flamingo on each white square and glued them to the scalloped squares.

For the first card I stamped a boarder of hearts down the left hand side of the card with Crumb Cake ink. I then added three of my squares at jaunty angles down the boarder and finished the card off with a greeting at the bottom.

For the second card I stamped the Crumb Cake hearts in opposite corners and then arranged four of the squares in a grid pattern in the centre of the card. I finished the card off with a sentiment running across the middle of the grid.

Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s two Valentine’s cards and pop back tomorrow to see what else I have created with the Forever Lovely stamp set.

Forever Lovely Birthday Card

Today I’m starting a week long show case of the All My Love Suite from the new Spring/Summer catalogue. These products are perfectly suited for all your Valentine’s and romance projects but today I’m showing how you can use them to make a gorgeous birthday card.

For the main focus of the card I stamped three of the gorgeous rose flowers in Lovely Lipstick. What I love about this stamp set is that is it part of our Distinctive range, meaning all that detail on the stamped image came from one impression of one stamp, making it even simpler to get gorgeous detail.

For some additional detail I used the Tufted Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder for the background layer and added a strip of the Lovely Lipstick Stitched Edge Ribbon for some added texture.

I love how this card came out and can’t wait to show you more lovely products with this gorgeous suite. So I hope you can join me again tomorrow.

Pootlers Team Blog Hop – Spring/Summer Catalogue

Today I’m taking part in the Pootler’s team blog hop showcasing our favourite products from the new Spring Summer catalogue. There’s a lot to love in this catalogue and it was hard to decide what to share with you today. I decided on my favourite bundle Butterfly Gala, which contains a great stamp set and the best butterfly fly punch I think Stampin’ Up! has come out with, with two gorgeous butterflies. I’ve paired this bundle with the new Crackle Paint background, which has brought back many happy memories of playing with crackle paint as a kid, so I’m glad we now have the same effect but much quicker.

The first card I made was in Highland Heather, a colour I haven’t used much but has created a lovely soft card.

For the next card I brightened it up by using Lovely Lipstick, this was my favourite card for highlighting how good the Crackle Paint background is.

For my final card I used Flirty Flamingo just so I could add some of the lovely new 1/8″ sheer Flirty Flamingo ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack, which I adds a lovely soft feeling to the card.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my cards today and I’d love it if you would visit some of my fellow teammates and see their wonderful creations with the new products. Simply click the blue button below and follow the links to each blog.
