Just a quick project today to highlight the cute little Meerkat family from The Gangs All Meer stamp set, I love their cheeky little faces.
I’ve gone with a colur scheme of Mango Melody, Pear Pizzazz and Granny Apple Green for my card base. I’ve used a piece of Pear Pizzazz as my background and stamped the little catus plants all over in Granny Apple Green just to give them more pop.
I added a strip of the Textured Weave Ribbon in Granny Apple Green across the top third of my card before adhering my Meerkat circle.
I coloured the Meerkat with Stampin’ Blends in Light Crumb Cake for their tummies and Light Soft Suede for the rest of their bodies. They are stood on a mix of Light Pumkin Pie and Light Mango Melody so it hopefully looks like sand.
This cute little stamp set is available until the end of March as a Sale-A-Bration freebie, so just place an order of £45 or more and you too could be stamping with these cuties.
Happy Belated New Year everyone, sorry I’ve been away longer than I was expecting but I needed a complete crafting break. I’m back now and raring to show some projects I’ve been working on over the pass few days using some of the gorgeous new products from out new January/June Mini Catalogue and also Sale-A-Bration which is already well under way.
For today’s project I’m sharing a card I made for my cousins wedding at the beginning of this year. I chose to base the card around the papers in the Parisians Blossoms Specialty Designer Paoer because its stunning and I thought the champagne foil accents on the flowers would work well for the wedding theme.
The greeting comes from the Last A Lifetime stamp set and was stamped in Petal Pink on a matt die cut from the Printed Labels Dies. I added some of the Petal Pink Metallic Edged Ribbon across the top third of the card before adhering my greeting. I then added three fussy cut flowers onto the card and added a Champagne Rhinestone to their centres to finish the card off.
Here’s a look at the inside of the card, hope my cousin and her new husband liked the card.
Card Base: Half A4 sheet of cardstock cut to 14.9cm x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm
Petal Pink Matt Layer: 10cm x 14.4cm
DSP Layer: 9.5cm x 13.9cm
Today I’m sharing another birthday card duo, this time featuring the Piece of Cake stamp set and matching Cake Builder Punch. I’ve used Rococo Rose for one card and Seaside Spray for the other and kept them simple by using no embellishments.
I used the Fluid 100 watercolour paper for the background and used the Aqua Painter to create a wash of colour over the backgorund. I then used the finger flick technique to add the flecked ink across the card to add some more detail. I then stamped the Happy Birthday from the stamp set all over randomly in Rococo Rose.
For the centre of the card I stamped dotty/stripy birthday cake in Tuxedo Memento Ink and then coloured with Stampin’ Blends beforing punching out. I also punch out to cake stands in Silver Foil. I then cut a white oval matt and stamped the little lollipops at the top. I adhered the white oval onto a Silver Foil oval and then attached to my card bases.
As a finishing touch added the cakes to the centre of the ovals using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give some dimension and interest to the card.
Which is your favourite the pink or blue version?
Just a quick post today as I’m snowed under with Christmas wrapping. This is another birthday card made with the Dinoroar suite which has been one of my favourites for childrens cards. These dinosaurs were cut straight from the Dinoroar DSP with the Dino Dies, which makes putting a card together super quick.
I’ve added a little shimmer to this card with the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversable Ribbon and the greeting comes from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.
I think this card would be suitable for boys or girls because of the mix of colours and anyway who doesn’t love a cute dinosaur!
The Free Skate Bundel and stamp set may have sold out here in Europe but as the dies are still available (as I write this) I thought I’d share this birthday card I made using them and the Born to Shine stamp set which features ballerina images.
This card is larger than my usual card bases so I could fit the boots and the two ballerina images. I cut a sheet of A4 to 18cm x 21cm scored in half at 10.5cm. The Rococo Rose layer is 17.5cm x 10cm and the Whisper White layer I stamped on measures 17cm x 9.5cm.
The two ballerina’s were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then colured with Rococo Rose and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. I then added the starry background in Petal Pink.
The skate was made from a Rococo Rose detailed outline and a Sparkle Glimmer paper solid layer which were glued together with Liquid Glue.
I adhered the Skate onto a background of Layered Ovals and then added some Rococo Rose laces and a Rhinestone to finish the card.
I’ve left a greeting off this card as I feel its finished as it is, plus there’s plenty of room inside to say exactly what you want.
So this week I’ve started my Christmas gift wrapping and these glittery Christmas Tree Tags are adorning some of them. They’re quick to make and you can get eight from on sheet of A4 so cost effective too.
I’ve used Real Red and Shaded Spruce for that traditional Christmas feel. Firstly cut your cardstock in half on the short edge so you have two have eachmeasuring 105.cm in width. Now cut four tags from each half wth a width of 5cm each. At 5cm they will easily slide into the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, giving a decorative top for each tag. To finish off the base of your tags use the Detailed Trio Punch to round off the bottom two corners.
I used the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set to add a greeting to the bottom of each tag. I did use the Golden Glitz Delicata Ink, which is sadly no longer available but I’m hoping most of you were able to get your hands on it. On the back of each tag I used the to/from stamp with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink so its easier to label.
For the Real Red Tag I used the Pine Tree Tag to punch trees from the Gold Glimmer paper and decorated them with Real Red Rhinestones and topped with a star from the Most Wonderful Time Medley which was coloured Real Red with a Stampin’ Blends Marker. I topped these tags with some Gold Metallc Edged Ribbon which is Very Vanilla in colour.
For the Shaded Spruce Tags I used Real Red Glimmer paper for the Christmas trees. I decorated these trees with the tinsel ribbon again from the Most Wonderful Time Medley and topped with one of the gold stars. These tags were finished off with some of 3/8″ Real Red cotton ribbon.
Hope you enjoyed todays project and have a go at making your own gift tags.
