Bella and Balloon Card

Yes its another card with a balloon, I seem to have a bit of an obsession lately with them. Think I’m just sad they’re all retiring but it won’t be long before I have new favourites.

The Bella & Friends stamp set is probably one of the cutest in the current catalogue, along with Pretty Kitty which is also retiring. Simply stamp your favourite cute little dog, colour with Stampin’ Blends and you’ve got a lovely card in minutes.

For the background of this card I used the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder in Mint Macaron which works great with Rich Razzleberry, one of my all time favourite colour combinations.

Hope you’ve all has a lovely Easter weekend and enjoy this gorgoeus Bank Holiday sun.

Thank You Thinlit Card

As promised here’s another project made using the Share What You Love Suite and the A Big Thank You Bundle. Today I’ve just used the Thank You Thinlit to make a card with no stamping, so if you need a thank you card quickly, this is the card for you.

I would never have thought to put Rich Razzleberry with Grapefruit Grove but seeing them together in the Share What You Love Specaility DSP they really work. Thats why I love Stampin’ Up’s DSP whenever you’re stuck for a colour combination to work with just go and pull out some paper and you’ll soon find a great combination.

The flower on this card comes from another sheet of paper in this pack and was just fussy cut out and added with a Stampin’ Dimensional, I think it’s the perfect embellishment to finish this quick card.

Get Well Soon Card with Healing Hugs

I’m sharing a get well card today which is something I don’t make enough of. For this card I’ve pulled out the Healing Hugs stamp set because I love that beautiful rose image and the best thing is you can get all that detail with just one impression.

Taking inspiration from the Tea Room Speciality paper I chose a colour scheme of Calypso Coral and Rich Razzleberry with just a hint of Pear Pizzazz. You wouldn’t expect these two colours to work but I love them together.

The Rich Razzleberry background layer is the lattice die from the Rose Trellis Framelits. I love this die and if you do too I suggest you order it very soon as when our current supply of this Framelit set have run out it won’t be replaced.

Rich Razzleberry Floral Friendship Card with Blended Seasons

If you’ve followed my blog for a while it will be no surprise to you that the first image I wanted to stamp with out of the new Blended seasons stamp set was that gorgeous large floral image. Anyone know what flower it is because I don’t recognise it?

I chose a classic colour combination of Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive as I wanted to use the Stampin’ Blends and I haven’t order the new colours yet (they’re on their way).

Adding a layer of Light Pool Party all around the stamped image really helps it to pop off the page. I added a few pearls to the centres of the flowers to add some subtle extra detail.

I decorated the inside of the card with an extra coloured flower but kept it sentiment free so I can write my own message.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this first look at the Blended Seasons stamp set, pop back soon for more ideas with this set.

Simple Thank You Car with the Share What You Love Suite

I’m loving playing with the Share What You Love Suite of products which is currently available as three bundles. This card features products from the biggest bundle the Gotta Have It All Bundle which includes my newest favourite paper pack the Share What You Love Speciality Paper. Here’s a look at my card:

The beautiful paper doesn’t need much adding to it to make a great card so I just stamped a simple panel with the largest floral stamp from the Love What You Do stamp set in Rich Razzleberry. I added a little texture to the card with the new Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon which is so soft to touch.

I’m Back… to Party with the Pandas

So if you’re a regular visitor to my blog you may have noticed that I’ve been away for the past couple of months, life got in the way and crafting had to take a back seat but I’m back now and ready to share plenty more crafty ideas with you all.

So today I’m sharing a quick and easy birthday card I made with the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Party Pandas, one of my favourites from this years selection.

I used a Rich Razzleberry card base with a layer of patterned paper from the Tutti-frutti 6 x 6 dsp pack. This is a great paper pack as there are so many colours included with lovely cheerful patterns on one side and fruity patterns on the other. I have to be honest I’m not a fan of the fruit sides but the others I just love as they are so versatile.

I stamped the cute little panda on a Whisper White oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits and matted on a larger scalloped one in Rich Razzleberry. I stamped the balloon on a scrap piece of the tutti-frutti paper and fussy cut it out to give the panda his balloon to pop over the layers.  I added a banner greeting stamped from the Birthday Banners stamp set and cut out with the Bunch of Banners Framelits.

And here’s a look at the inside, where I stamped a couple of the panda’s balloon’s in the corner and coloured them with the Rich Razzleberry and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends.

Hope you enjoyed today’s project and if you would like the Party Panda stamp set then just place an order of £45.00 or more before the end of the month and you can choose it as your Sale-A-Bration freebie.

Sugarplum Swirl Star Christmas Card

To start off my Christmas cards this year I pulled out the Star of Light stamp set, which ironically was one of the sets I last used before my summer break. I started with a simple card featuring a little simple stamping and two of the dies from the Starlight Thinlits die set.

First I stamped the detailed star in Rich Razzleberry onto Sweet Sugarplum cardstock. I then cut this out using the largest outline die. I also cut out the small detailed star in Rich Razzleberry, which was stuck onto the multi-purpose sheets which makes it super easy adhere to the Sweet Sugarplum star.

Next I took a strip of Whisper White measuring 14.5cm x 6cm and stamped two of the large swirls in Sweet Sugarplum and then stamped the “Merry Christmas” greeting at the bottom of the strip in Rich Razzleberry.

I then took the Ticket Tear border punch and created a border strip in Sweet Sugarplum 14.5cm long for each side of the white panel. I then adhered this to a card base in Rich Razzleberry and then used Stampin’ Dimensional’s on the back of the Sweet Sugarplum star, here is the finished card front:

For the inside of the card I cut a piece of Whisper White card measuring 14cm x 10cm and just stamped the large swirl in Sweet Sugarplum.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my first Christmas card of 2017, check back tomorrow and the rest of this week for more cards featuring Stars and Snowflakes.
