Kangaroo Thanks A Bunch Card

It’s Kangaroo & Co which has seen some ink today to make this thank you card, if you changed the sentiment it could easily be used as a birthday or get well soon card aswell.

I took one of the Ornate Layers dies and cut it out of Basic White. While the card was still in the die I used a Blender Brush and Soft Sea Foam to create the grass, with heavier blending at the bottom and a very light touch at the top. I then added a little bit of grass again using Soft Sea Foam.

I also stamped the butterfly and the greeting on this panel. I used the flower stamp and Versamark to create the subtle background on the Blamy Blue card base.

To finish the card I added a die cut Kangaroo coloured in Crumb Cake and a bunch of flowers in Balmy Blue, Soft Sea Foam and Daffodil Delight.

You Can Count on Me Card

I’ve been trying to use up the remenants of my dsp from the current catalogue before my new catalogue pre-order arrives (fingers crossed its today!). Today I’ve pulled out the Playing With Patterns pack and I’ve paired it the Hey Girlfriend stamp set so I can also pull out my Blends.

I’ve used a colour scheme of Night of Navy, Purple Posy, Highland Heather and a touch of Pool Party.

I’ve added some Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestones as a finishing touch.

Tropical True Love Thanks Card

Today I’ve taken a sheet of the True Love DSP from the Love You Always Suite and given it a tropical twist. I love this paper as its black and white so you can add you own colour to match anything else in your crafty stash.

To emphasize the tropical feel I’ve coloured the paper with Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Granny Apple, Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry and a little touch of Flirty Flamingo. I’ve left some of the flowers mostly white to add a little “pop” to the background.

To finish the card I’ve added a greeting stamped on labels from the Potted Succulents Dies and also a couple of Mint Macaron Springs to match the springs in the paper. I love how bright and colourful this card is and I’m pleased I’ve managed to get Pumpkin Pie onto a card!

Pastel Prettiest of Birthdays Card

It’s the pastel shades of Soft Sea Foam and Flirty Flamingo for today’s card made with the Prettiest of Birthdays stamp and die set. From banners and balloons to cake and flowers this set has a whole host of images suitable for the prettiest of birthday cards.

I’ve just used the cake image today to create this soft feminine birthday card. The background is created with a layer of Soft Sea Foam which has been run through the Tasteful Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I’ve then used one of the Square Vellum Dolies coloured Flirty Flamingo by using the new Blending Brushes from our current Mini catalogue.

I’ve added the cake image, cut the stand part off as it didn’t look quite right. I’ve fussy cut some extra flowers from the cake image to balance my card out across the sentiment label.

5 Year Stampin’ Up! Anniversary Card

Today its 5 years since I signed up with Stampin’ Up! So it’s the perfect opportunity to share a bright fun birthday card using one of my favourite Stampin’ Up! products, Stampin’ Blends!!

I don’t think there’s a day gone by where I haven’t coloured something with these pens, I love them so much.

Today’s card is made from the Prettiest of Birthdays stamp set, most of the samples I’ve seen using this set have been very pastel based and feminine, so today I’ve gone bright.

The colours I’ve used are Misty Moonlight, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight and although its still a more feminine colour scheme you could eaily swap out Magenta Madness for Poppy Parade or Real Red and it would work just as well.

To celebrate my 5 years with Stampin’ Up! I’m offering anyone who places a £50 or more order with me between now and April 4th 2021 using the hostess code WYTXZMXY a special gift. Special gifts are from me only and not endorsed by Stampin’ Up!
