Keeping it simple today with the Label Me Bold stamp set. This one is full of abstract images which are perfect for creating all kinds of patterns, you can’t really go wrong. This kind of stamping with shapes is something I find very relaxing which is good as its been a stressful day!
This first card features Rococo Rose and Petal Pink. For the greeting I stamped Happy Birthday three times on scrap paper in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I cut these out with a small white border and adhered them to the card with the Foam Adhesive Strips.
The second card uses Bermuda Bay and Pool Party for the background colours. For a little bling I added some Champagne Rhinestones to the pink card and some Rhinestone Basic Jewels coloured in Dark Pool Party Blends among the greetings.
I’ve pulled out an old favourite today, Cookie Cutter Christmas which was released two years ago, I’m sure many of you have this stamp set and its matching punch in your collection. It’s the perfect combination for making quick Christmas cards.
I’ve focused my project today on the cute little Eskimo as I’m not 100% certain this one has seen ink yet and with the addition of our Stampin’ Blends its even quicker to make a lovely card.
A little Wink of Stella on the Eskimo’s fur adds a little frosty sparkle and the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing folder adds a subtle snow effect to the background. Adding some Shimmer Ribbon in Pool Party gives a more frosty effect. I love how this card turned out and its the perfect non-traditional Christmas card to share with one of your best friends.
Today I’m featuring the Magical Day stamp set out of the Spring/Summer catalogue, I love this set and was really hoping this would not be retiring, sadly it is so if you haven’t yet added it to your collection I highly recommend it.
I chose the little mermaid stamp as my focus as I wanted to use the bubble paper from the Myths and Magic Speciality DSP and the Glitter Epoxy Shapes. Here’s my card:
And here’s a close up of the mermaid:
And on the inside I added the cute little seahorse as a finishing touch:
Hope you enjoyed today’s look at the Magical Day stamp set.
Today I’ve made a set of six 3″ x 3″ notecards featuring the Daisy Delight set and the Wood Words set, both of these sets are currently 15% off in the World Card Making Day Sale. The notecards are perfectly sized to coordinate with the mini envelopes and mini pizza boxes in the Autumn/Winter catalogue.
First I took Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Old Olive and made card bases measuring 3″ x 6″, scored at 3″. I made two of each colour. Next I took the Delightful Daisy DSP paper and cut matching squares measuring 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″, after inking around the edges in Daffodil Delight I adhered then to the front of my cards with Fast Fuse adhesive.

This week I’m featuring cards with products in the World Card Making Day Sale and the DSP buy 3, get 1 sale. Today I’m using the Colorful Seasons stamp set and Color Theory DSP stack, which I combined with a combination of Pool Party, Berry Burst and a hint of Early Expresso.
First I took Berry Burst cardstock and cut a matt layer measuring 14cm x 10cm and then took the Color Theory DSP stack and then chose the Berry Burst White crackle paper and cut this to 13.5cm x 9.5cm.
I stuck a length of Pool Party Shimmery Ribbon across the middle of the Berry Burst crackle paper and then adhered this sheet to the Berry Burst cardstock layer. I fixed these onto a Pool Party card base measuring 14.5cm x 21cm, scored and folded at 10.5cm.
On a piece of Whisper white cardstock measuring 9cm x 7.5cm stamp the branch in Early Expresso and the greeting in Berry Burst. On a scrap piece of paper stamp five flowers in Berry Burst and add the stamens in Early Expresso. I fussy cut these out as I’ve lost my Seasonal Layers Thinlits, but if you have the dies use them.
I matted my stamped layer onto a piece of Berry Burst measuring 9.5cm x 8cm and then adhered this to the left hand side of my card. Add the cut flowers to the branch using Stampin’ Dimensional’s. To finish the card off add three of the Berry Burst Glitter Dots in various sizes to the top right hand side.
Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project and join me tomorrow for another project inspired by the sale items.
