Best Bunny Birthday Cards

Today I’m sharing two cards I’ve made using the Best Bunny Bundle. This wasn’t a set which was top of my list but I earnt it free with my credits from Sal-A-Bration and now I’ve used it I love it, that bunny is just so cute!

I chose to combine it with the Twinkle Twinkle DSP which has some lovely subtle patterns which I can see being very versatile. For these cards I chose the star print as wanted to make some birthday cards for younger children. I chose colour combinations of Petal Pink with Soft Seafoam and Night of Navy with Pool Party.

The bunny is sitting on one of the line stamps from Swirly Frames as I didn’t notice the little grass stamp in the Best Bunny set until I was gluing the bunny onto the card. Some of the Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins add a little shimmer to the card and match perfectly as the change colour as different light catches them.

So if you’re not sure about this set give it a go, it makes lovely cards and making us the little bunnies is so much fun.

Balmy Blue Bottle Birthday Card

Today I’ve gone for all the B’ and used Balmy Blue and the Bubble Over stamp set to make a boy themed birthday card and I love how its turned out.

I love how the bubble paper from the Tranquil Textures DSP highlights the tone on tone bubbles stamped on my card base.

I’m loving the addition of Balmy Blue to our line up, its a shade of blue I think we’ve been lacking since Bashful Blue and Ballet Blue retired years ago and I think Balmy Blue is the perfect mix of both of these colours. It also looks stunning with Night of Navy which makes me happy as this is a colour I find tricky to use. 

Hope you have enjoyed this look project mixing old and new products.

“You Are Wonderful” with the Nature’s Poem Suite

One of the standout suite’s from this years catalogue for me is the Nature’s Poem Suite, which if you love the Lovely As A Tree stamp set you will adore as its the perfect collection of products to compliment that set. One of my favourite stamps in the Rooted in Nature stamp set is the tree stump slice which has some great detail on it.

For this card the tree stump came from a second generation stamping in Soft Suede, I love how this really brings out all the details in the tree stump. I embossed the greeting “You Are Wonderful” in copper which I think works perfectly with all the tones in the gorgeous Nature’s Poem DSP.

To add to the rustic feel I added some loops of Linen thread and some Copper Trim to highlight the embossing. I have the dies on order so look forward to more projects from this beautiful suite soon.

Handwritten Watercolour Wash Thank You Card

For today’s project pulled out the new background stamp Handwritten. I love this background stamp as it has such a mix of words in a variety a languages so can be used for any occasion and its in the most lovely curvy font.

I created the back with a wash of Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Grapefruit grove and Mango Melody across damp watercolour paper.  After leaving to dry and stamped the background stamp across the front, using the Stamparatus for this meant I could re-stamp numerous times with black to create a deeper image.

To finish the card I added the Thank You greeting from Stitched All Around and mounted it on the coordinating die from Stitched Labels Framelits Dies. I also added some of the new black 1/8″ cord which I can see myself using a lot.

Share What You Love Suite and Grapefruit Grove

For today’s card I’m showcasing products from the Share What You Love Suite in Grapefruit Grove, one of our new 2018-2020 In-Colours. As regular readers will know I’m not a huge fan of the orange/peach shades in our collection but Grapefruit Grove is lovely and currently my favourite of the new in-colours.

Most of these products come from the Gotta Have It All bundle, which I highly recommend anyone purchasing as this suite of products is just stunning in real-life.

I added a circle from the Stitched Shape Framelits as a base for my stamping. The leaves are done in second generation ink so you can see how lovely a lighter shade of this colour is. The doily was one of the new pearlescent ones turned over and inked with Grapefruit Grove, I think this gives the card a real pop.  The beautiful Artisan Pearls add the perfect finishing touch, I can see myself going through many packets of these.

Here’s a close-up of the card, I wish the photo showed the beautiful pearly shimmer on those fussy cut flowers.  Hope you enjoyed today’s project.
