For today’s card I’ve pulled out the Flowering Vine Dies which coordinate with the Vine design stamp set, both from the January to June Mini Catalogue. I love how much detail they have in the three large dies and the overall fresh modern vibe with they have.
I’ve used Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Basic White for this card. I love how much the white background die stands out on the card and the Magenta Madness just adds a pop of colour.
A few Coastal Cabana Rhinestone for the flower centres and the card is done. I can’t wait to play with this set some more.
Today I’m sharing a simple card made with the Tasteful Touches stamp set, Tasteful Labels dies and the In Good Taste DSP. I’m glad this paper is carrying over as its full of really useful designs for backgrounds or elements as I’ve used here. It’s also got twenty sheets in the pack so I have plenty left to use up.
The Tasteful Touches stamp set it one which can appeal to everybody, to I’ve paired it with Night of Navy and a touch of Seaside Spray for a masculine feel.
I cut out four of the large circles from the paper and two from cardstock to stamp a greeting and extra pattern. Then simply overlapped them down one side of the card. The circle with the greeting on is stuck down with Stampin’ Dimensionals to raise it up slightly.
I then finished the card with three Night of Night Rhinestones from the Holiday collection.
This card is for my son as he’s been working really hard on his maths and swimming since going back to school and I wanted him to know how proud we are of him.
Today I’m casing the catalogue and sharing with you my simplified version of the Stampin’ Up! original found on page 97. I’ve pulled out my Stitched Stars dies as they haven’t seen any love in a while and paired them with the Playing With Patterns DSP.
The original card uses Silver Foil and embossing folders for texture as you can see below.
As you can see I kept to a blue base but used Night of Navy instead of Misty Moonlight and used Costal Cabana and Calypso Coral as my other colours. I left off the twine as I want a quick card which was easy to replicate for when you need those last minute birthday cards.
I’m hoping today’s card will chase away the rain and bring us some sunshine as I’d love to wear something other than wellies when I’m outisde. Hopefully the bright fun colours of Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral will tempt that sunshine out.
Some punching and a little fussy cutting and you have this cute little card, perfect for sending to someone you haven’t seen for awhile to let them know you care.
As soon as I saw images in the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Power of Hope I was reminded of my childhood and her Willow Tree China. I was a very fussy eater and would only eat cheese sandwiches shaped as giraffes off the special blue plates at her house, bless her she made them for me every visit! So this one’s for you Grandma, thank you for indulging my childhood whims.
This is a very simple card using just Whisper White Thick cardstock as a base and Night of Navy cardstock and ink to create the image.
I used a Blender Pen to pull some of the ink off the outline of the chinese lady to give her dress a very slight blue colouring. The little bush in the corner was created with the top of the tree image. I stamped it once and it turned out not so good, so I just overstamped with the leftover ink on my stamp a few times to fill it in and I actually like how this turned out.
Are there any stamp sets which bring back happy childhood memories for you? I’d love to know all about them.
