Cabana & Calypso Under My Umbrella Card

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.

Ornate Blooms with Stampin’ Blends

This card features one of my most longed for products a Stampin’ Blends marker in Melon Mambo. There have been so many times I’ve reached for this colour only to be dissappointed we don’t have it, so yay Stampin’ Up! I’m one happy girl.

I’ve pulled out the Ornate Style stamp set to colour that gorgeous floral arrangement. I used Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, So Saffron, Seaside Spray and the new markers in Just Jade which are lovely too.

The background paper comes from the new In Colour 2020-2022 and is in Just Jade. I added the greeting from the Butterfly Gala stamp set on a punched label from the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch on the 3/4″ width.

To finish the card I added three Mango Melody sequins from the Artistry Blooms Sequins Collection, I love that these are self adhesive so you can just stick and go.

Pedal to the Metal Birthday Cards

Male cards are something I have always struggled with, especially teenage males which makes the the Pedal to the Metal stamp set the perfect choice. This stamp set has some great images for males of any age.

Motercycle Card

For these cards I  used Blueberry Bushell and Call Me Clover before they go in the retired products cupboard. I’ve matched Blueberry Bushell with the Motorbike and Call Me Clover with the Gator as its the perfect “John Deere” Green.

Gator Birthday Card

The Happy Birthday greeting comes from the Bonanza Buddies stamp set which is also retiring and the stars are from the Family Party stamp set. I love the background I created with the tyre tracks and stars, perfect for teenagers.

New Baby Card with Welcome Easter

How cute is this little lamb from the Welcome Easter stamp set? I love it along with the rabbit and chick which can also be found in the stamp set. This might be an easter themed stamp set but its also perfect for new baby cards and thats what I’ve made today.

Using Petal Pink as my main colour I’ve pulled the background paper from the Best Dressed 6 x6 Paper Pack and also added in the Organdy Striped Ribbon which is one of my favourites.

I used the little flowers from the stamp set to echo the pattern on the paper which  I think looks really cute.

So if your looking for a cute stamp set grab Welcome Easter before it retires, its one I’ll definietly be keeping.

Thinking of You Card with Beautiful Moments

The images in the Beautiful Moments stamp set are bringing back a lot of happy memories for me at the moment as I’m longing to go the the beach and feel the wind in my hair as I walk along the beach with my little girl…..one day soon I hope.

These images are also great for colouring which is what I’ve done here using Seaside Spray, Petal Pink, crumb Cake, Old Olive and Higland Heather Stampin’ Blends.  I’ve used the stitched rectangle die from the Nature’s Thoughts die set, this will be back in the new catalogue in June.

For the background I used Rococo Rose cardstock in the new Ornate Flowers 3D Embossing Folder, which could be my new favourite as I love those cute little flowers.  I added some of the Whisper White Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon to finish the card off.
