Ornate Garden Simple Thank You Card

Today I’m sharing a simple thank you card featuring products from the new Ornate Garden Suite which went on early release last month. I think this suite has a very retro vibe with the Terracotta Tile and Old Olive and our new Bumble Bee In-Colour, in reminds me of curtains my grandma had when I was little.

This card was very quick to make as it involves one layer of dsp, two die cuts and one stamped greeting and a small amount of ribbon.  I used Terracotta Tile as my colour for this card as I think it makes this background paper look it very best,

I added a strip of the Terracotta Tile ribbon across the centre of the dsp before adhering to my card base. I then stamped the greeting in Terracotta Tile on Whisper White cardstock and adhegred it to the ornate frame cut again from Terracotta Tile.

I love how the “Thank You” greeting fits perfectly in the rectangle die-cut giving a great focal point to the card, meaning you can out this card together in minutes, perfect for those customer thank yous.

Bermuda Bay Bonanza Birthday Card

Today I’m sharing this bright and cheery birthday card made with the Bonanza Buddies stamp and die bundle and the matching Birthday Bonanza Designer Paper. I love the cute little characters these stamps and dies create, perfect for any kids birthday big or small.

I’ve used Bermuda Bay as my card base as I think its highlights how bright and fun the birthday parcel ppaer is from the Birthday Bonanza DSP. I added a little of ther Ruched Daffodil Delight Ribbon across my DSP before adhering to the card to add a little texture.

The Koala and Lion were stamped and then die cut. I love how  the lions mane and tail end are on one stamp and die set so they line up perfectly. The Koala was stamped in Gray Granite and the Lion in Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody. The die cut balloons were stamped in Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay and Terracotta Tile.

To decorate the inside I added a row of Terracotta Tile birthday presents along the bottom of the card.

For this card I stuck to the colour scheme which matched the DSP but you could use any of our colours to make wonderful birthday cards.

Be Strong Be Happy Be You Card

The idea for this card has brewing in my head quite a while so when I saw the colours in the Mosaic Mood Speciality DSP I knew it was time to let it come to life. I’m not a huge orange fan so when Terracotta Tile was introduced as on of the new In-Colours I was honestly a bit disappointed, but seeing it mixed with Mint Macaron and Crushed Curry makes me happy so we’re going with it.

I used my Stamparatus to line up the ladies with their inner dress stamps, which I still found tricky as I don’t tend to put the labels on the back of my stamps as wasn’t a fan of the old clear-mount labels. In this instance I have labeled the outline stamp and I’m quite happy with the results. I used a blender pen and some ink off the inkpads to colour in each ladies hat. I then cut them out of the second smallest of the fatter Stitched Rectangle dies.

To finish the card I stamped the greeting from the Rooted in Nature stamp set and then fussy cut it so I had one line for each lady. A beautiful card all ready to give to a beautiful lady.
