Dragonfly Dreams Meets Star of Light

Hi Everyone,

If your anything like me then you are always looking for new ways to use stamp sets, I think this is particularly true for the Christmas themed sets which don’t get all year round use. Star of Light is a great example of a Christmas themed stamp set which can easily be used anytime of year and stars are a fairly versatile image.

For today’s card I took the large swirl stamp which is my favourite from this set and combined it with stamps from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.

Here is the card I came up with:

I chose to use Smoky Slate for the swirls and the little stars, which also come from the Star of Light set as I wanted to keep the background fairly pale.

I stamped the dragonfly wings with Wisteria Wonder and then stamped the whole dragonfly outline in Perfect Plum.

I added a greeting in the bottom left corner in Perfect Plum again and the card is done, quick simple and lovely.

Hope you like this card, do you have any more ideas for the Star of Light set?

First Birthday Card with A Little Foxy Suite

Today I’ve been playing with the A Little Foxy Suite of products which includes the Foxy Friends stamp set, the Fox Builder Punch, the A Little Foxy designer series paper and the Smoky Slate Stitched Ribbon. Sadly the paper and ribbon were on the retirement list and have already sold out but you could easily substitute with other products which you have.

I made a cute and very simple first birthday card for a little boy using the colour scheme of Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Calypso Coral. I’m not really a fan of Calypso Coral but it is the perfect fox colour.

The little fox was created by stamping three different sections the head, the body and the tail, punching them out and then layering them together. Super simple and you have a cute little foxy in no time and if your feeling adventurous other animals can easily be made too.

The number comes from the Large Numbers Framelits and was layered with ovals from the Stitched Shape Framelits and the Layering Ovals, probably made favourite combination of Framelits to use.

The card was finished off with a greeting from the Number of Years stamps set and the lovely Smoky Slate Stitched Ribbon which I was I used more as its added a lovely finishing touch to this card.

I’d love to know what animals you.ve created with the Foxy Friends Bundle of products.

Pootles Design Team My Hero – Week 4

14088395_10153745365531603_281310922678395855_n

This week I have been surrounded by poorly children who have now passed their delightful germs onto me, so the obvious choice for this week was a get well card.

I also don’t think we could focus on this set and not make some get well cards as this is the Ronald MacDonald House Charities set which raises money to help families with sick children who are receiving treatment far from home., so this is definitely a set you should consider as £2.00 from every sale goes to the charity.

I went for a super simple card this week with a couple of layers and just a little stamping. Here is the card

I chose a colour scheme of Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party and Smokey Slate and I love how well they work together. The only dimension on the card is the top of the umbrella as I wanted to make it easy for posting.

Thank you for popping by, if you would like to check out what the rest of the design team make take a look on www.pootles.com for the links.
