This week I’m showcasing the Sweet Conversation Bundle along with the Sweet Talk DSP the perfect products to create some Valentine’s Day cards.
I’ve kept the colur scheme very simple with Real Red, Blushing Bride and a hint of Black.
This first card uses the lollipop paper from the Sweet talk pack and looking at it I knew I had to turn all those lollipops shiny with some Shimmery Crytal Effects. I love how this looks so just added a simple sentiment using the banner in the Sweet Heart Dies. To give it the banner edge on both ends make sure the edge of the die is hanging off the edge of the cutting plates on the first cut (so it doesn’t cut) and then flip it round so the middle part is over the edge before cutting again.
This second card uses a mix of paper and stamped die cuts to create the hearts and sentiment.
I went a bit crazy stamping and die cutting all the different hearts from the stamps and the paper so this card is a little collage of all my favourite hearts mixed togther, with a simple sentiment at the bottom to finish.
I love all these cards and can’t wait to play with these products again and use the other sheets of paper which are more colourful and more versatile.
Today I’m sharing a simple card made with the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set. I’ve used a colour scheme of Real Red, Granny Apple Green and Bumblebee. I stamped one of the small flowers on the Real Red cardstock base to give a tone on tone background on the card.
For the focus point on the card I stamped the large floral image on one of the second largest Stitched Rectangles.
I added extra layers using a Granny Apple Green Rectangle cut from the current Brights collection dsp and a Real Red layer cut from the Regals designer from the upcoming catalogue.
To finish off the card I added a greeting stamped on the smallest rectangle die.
Last Christmas the Christmas Pines stamp set and matching die set was one of my favourite things from the Autumn/Winter catalogue and I was so happy it made it into our annual catalogue as its such a great set. Today I’ve pulled it out and made a very traditional looking card with a Real Red and Emerald envy colour scheme.
Today I’m super excited that I’m part of the Pootler’s Design Team for November, this month the stamp set that we have been given to work is The Little Things which is such a cute set for creating labels for all occasions.
For this week’s project I have chosen to focus on the gorgeous “December Deliciousness” stamp, I have used it to create a set of notecards which would be suitable for my little girl to hand out to her classmates.
For some reason this stamp reminds me of lasts years Candy Cane Lane DSP so used this to create a colour scheme of Crumb Cake, Early Expresso, Real Red and Very Vanilla.
For these two cards I wanted to cover up the words so I took the stripe stamp and stamped in Real Red, I then cut this out using the Bunch of Banners. For the greeting I took the Made Extra Special stamp and just inked up the “Just For You” you with the Early Expresso marker and then punched this out with the Classic Label Punch.
For this second set of notecards I wanted to use the same set but use a more Christmassy greeting. To make a space for a greeting I covered the December Deliciousness up with washi tape and inked up the stamp. Remember to remove the washi tape before stamping or you will have a big brown splodge….like I did the first time I did these cards.
For this last set I still wanted them to match but didn’t want to use the big stamp. I used the same greeting as the previous two notecards with the stamps from Merry Café in the middle. I then stamped the gingerbread man and the star in Early Expresso and Crumb Cake. I love these little stamps, I mean is there anything cuter than a mini gingerbread man?
Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project, if you want to see what the rest of the team created the links can be found on http://www.pootles.com
Join me next week and see what else I create with this stamp set.
For today’s project I have another card using the Painted Harvest stamp set, I was inspired by looking at Poinsettia’s and was originally going to make a Christmas card, however when I added the Pear Pizzazz card base I felt it would be better as a birthday card.
