Simple Stamping with Hooray to You

Here’s a quick birthday card made with the Hooray to You stamp set and the best thing is it will work for any colour combination you want.

I’ve used a bright and cheery colour combination of Melon Mambo, Night of Navy and Pumpkin Pie to work with the Artistry Blooms DSP which a used as layer.

Which colour combination would you use?

Blended Hearts Valentine’s Card

Have you tried our new Blending Brushes yet? I love them, they are super soft and make making beautifully blended backgrounds much easier than using sponges as they leave no lines.

For this card I’ve used the Detailed Hearts Die as a stencil instead of a die. I first used the brushes to blend a layer of Flirty Flamingo all over the card. I then place over the die, held in palce with washi tape and used the brushes with Real Red, making the blending darker down the centre of the card. I love the effect this has created.

I stamped Happy Valentine’s Day from the Heart to Heart stamp set onto a label cut from the Tasteful Labels Dies. I added a little touch of the Real Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon to the edge of the label and finished the card off with some of the little Real Red Resin hearts from the Snail Mail Suite.

Flower and Field Designer Paper Card Set

The Flower & Field Designer Paper is one of the free paper packs available this Sale-A-Bration with an order over £45.00. It’s probably not a pack I would have purchased myself despite it being floral as it’s quite dark, however after making this set of cards I quite like it.

I’ve kept the cards simple and let the paper do the talking, with just a simple matt in a coordinating colour, which I think helps the patterns pop.

The sentiments come from the stamp set Heal the Heart which is also a free Sale-A-Bration set. To finish off the cards I added some of the Whisper white Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and some Basic Rhinestones.

These two are my favourites, probabley because they both feel very summery and I’m really missing the sun at the moment. Which one is your favourite?

Birthday Pefection Card

The Approaching Perfection stamp set is another of our freebies for this Sale-A-Bration and it could be one you’ve overlooked as its on the same page as the gorgeous Oh So Ombre paper pack.

If you like quirky sentiments then this is the set for you. I tend to stick to the more traditional sentiments like I have with this card but I do like all of these.

I used Stampin’ Markers in Petal Pink, Real Red and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Markers to colour the stamp, to match this pattern from the Snail Mail DSP collection.

This birthday card is suitable for anyone so perfect to make when you need a super quick card.

Hey Girlfriend Ombre Card Duo

I love the sassy girl images in the Hey Girlfriend stamp set, I think will make great cards for girls of any age to recieve. I know my seven year old has loved stamping with these more than me so far.

Today I’ve kept the cards fairly simple by just colouring with Stampin’ Blends and adding so of the Oh So Ombre 6 x 6 dsp pack as a background. This paper pack is availbale during Sale-A-Bration and is proving very popular.

I’ve used the largest scalloped square frame from the Stitched So Sweetly die set on this first card. I also had to add in the little dog as it reminds me of the one from Bella & Friends a couple of years ago, so cute!

For this card I stamped the sentiment using the Many Messages stamp and die set. This combo is great because with one stamp you get 19 messages and then simply place the die over and they all cut out in one go, so a great addition if you need a lot of sentiments quickly.
