Today I’m sharing another childrens birthday card, this time made with the Over the Moon stamp set. The background was a watercolour wash of Mint Macaron on the old watwercolour paper, having now used our new Fluid 100 watercolour paper I much prefer this as its blends so much smoother.
I stamped the cow in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Stampin’ Blends before fussy cutting her out. Here’s a little close up of her:
I attached some linen thread around the base of the punched out balloon with Tear N Tape around the back. I then attached the thread to the cow using some more tape rolled into a ball, you could also use a glue dot here but I’m out of them at the moment.
To finish the card stamp Happy Birthday from Perennial Birthday across the bottom of the card in Rich Razzleberry.
Finished result a cute birthday card which I’m sure anyone would love.
Card Base: Half A4 sheet of cardstock measuring 14.9 x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm
Rich Razzleberry Matt: 14.4cm x 10cm
Watercolour Paper: 13.9cm x 9.5cm
Hiding on the inside cover of the Spring/Summer Catalogue the All That You Are stamp set might be one which you’ve over-looked, I know I did for a couple of months. It’s a stamp set which contains lovely floral images and the best thing is the two smaller flowers can be cut out with the First Frost dies which carried over from the Autumn/Winter catalogue.
I love the main floral image so wanted to highlight that by creating a very simple card, so out came my Stazon ink and water-colour pencils.
Using the Rectangle Stitched Dies to add a sentiment and some of the Black Cord finishes the card off and makes it look elegant.
There’s only two more days to get your hands on the Blended Seasons bundle so I’m back today with another idea for you.
I’ve used the falling leaves stamp and stamped over watercolour paper in Stazon and then coloured with Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Garden Green watercolour pencils, which all belong to assortment 2. I coloured the leaves really roughly to try and highlight the affects of the turning leaves and I think the end result is quite good….if you don’t look too closely.
To add some texture I added some strips of ribbon to the side of my greetings panel. I used a small piece of the new Braided Linen Trim and I wanted something which would add a bit more Cajun Craze to the card. We don’t carry anything like this so I made my own using the Polka Dot Ribbon and the Dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends marker, which adds exactly what I wanted to the card.
Hope you’ve enjoyed todays project and remember order these products now before they’re gone forever.
Colouring is one of my favourite past-times while watching tv as I can’t just sit and watch I have to have my hands busy. Last night I was using the new Water Colour Assortment 2 pencils to colour these flowers from the Blended Seasons Stamp set.
I love how some simple colouring has turned into a beautiful card this morning. The colours used were just Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and the smallest amount of Crushed Curry, but the image looks like I used many more shades.
I was going to mount the image onto just a white card base but I think the added black layer gives the card a real “pop”. I stamped the greeting using Stazon on some vellum as I still wanted all of the flowers to be seen.
A super simple card which looks beautiful, now I’m off to do some more colouring.
One of the things I love about the new Irresistably Floral Designer Paper is that you can colour it to fit any project you wish. For today’s card I couldn’t decide which colour combination to use so I made two versions, a blue/green one and a pink/peach one.
