Sweet as a Peach Happy Birthday Card. Share it on a Sunday

 Good Morning Everyone,

Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend?

As it's Sunday, we have another Share it on a Sunday for you and this week it's all about die cuts. I chose to use the You're a Peach Suite. I'll be honest, I really didn't think this would be a Suite that I would like, let alone Love - the colours and images all work beautifully together.



Measurements

Pear Pizzazz Card Stock

1pc - 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", scored at 4 1/8"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

scraps

Sweet as a Peach DSP

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - 5 5/8" x 1"

scrap

-----------------------

Fold the Pear Pizzazz card stock along the score line to create your card base. Add the basic white panel and adhere the thin DSP strip along the bottom. 

Add the larger piece of DSP to the card front.

On scraps of basic white stamp 2 leaf images in Pear Pizzazz and cut out using the coordinating die.

Ink up the flower images in Pale Papaya, then using a sponge add a small amount of calypso coral ink around the edges to give a two tone effect. Stamp this twice, and then cut out using the coordinating dies.

Add the leaves to the top of the card, sticking then down flat with liquid glue. Then add the flowers with dimensionals. If you look closely at the leaves there's a small break in the stems so you know where to add them.

Cut out some basic white the small sentiment strip die and then stamp the sentiment in Pear Pizzazz ink.

Stamp the Happy Birthday Sentiment in Calypso Coral onto another piece of scrap and trim, slanting the edges to mimic the die cut - do the same with a small scrap of the DSP.

Arrange the two sentiments and the DSP strip below the leaves.

Finally add some rhinestones to the centre of each flower.

It's a super simple design, but I didn't want to do anything too fussy - sometimes it can be dialed back and still pretty thanks to the amazing coordination in the design and products.

I hope you enjoyed today's card - please pop over and see what Donna & Karen have both made today

Blackberry Beauty Happy Fall Greetings Card. Stamping for Friends Blog Hop. October 2021

 Good Evening Everyone,

Another hop for today, this time its with the lovely Stamping with Friends ladies and this theme was The Season of Fall. Now here in the UK, we don't really celebrate Fall as such, like other countries do - so I'll be honest I found this a little tricky but using the BlackBerry Beauty DSP I came up with this card, which I think it really Pretty.







Measurements

Blackberry Bliss Card Stock

1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8"

1pc - 2 1/4" x 3"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

Blackberry Beauty DSP

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

Fussy cut images

---------------------------------------

Fold the larger piece of BlackBerry Bliss card Stock along the score line,  adding the Basic white piece to the inside. Add a fussy cut owl in the bottom right.

Add the large panel of DSP to the card front.

Take the smaller piece of BlackBerry Bliss card Stock and score at 1/4" and 1/2" on all four sides. I thought this just added a little bit of interest. Add this to the centre of the card front.

Add some fussy cut acorn leaf clusters to cover the bottom and two owls in flight.

Run a selection of letters 'HAPPY FALL' through your cut and emboss machine using the Playful Alphabet dies and the gold metallic specialty paper.  Add the HAPPY top left and the FALL bottom right.

I hope you enjoyed the card today and will give it a go yourself - it would be lovely to see your versions, but for now please continue through the hop and see what everyone else has created for this Fall Theme hop. Xenia is up next so please click to see what she has made today.....

Turtle Friends Happy Birthday Card. Ink Stamp Share Tic Tac Toe Challenge Blog Hop

 Good Afternoon Everyone,

I'm hopping with the Ink Stamp Share ladies today and we are all following a Tic Tac Toe Board. I love there's types of challenges because you have to use three elements that are in a straight line on the grid - therefore sometimes using or create something you wouldn't normally.

Here's the card I've made using the Turtle Friends Bundle which is just so cute....





And here's is the Tic Tac Board we had to work from. I chose Square, Ribbon & Critter, because if I'm honest I think this was a really tricky board for me to follow.




Measurements

Shaded Spruce Card Stock

1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8

1pc - scrap

Soft Sea Foam Card Stock

1pc - 2 1/2" x 5 7/8"

1pc - 2 7/8" x 2 7/8"

1pc - scrap

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - scrap

Soft Suede Card Stock

1pc - 3" x 3"

------------------------------------------------

Fold your piece of Shaded Spruce Card Stock along the score line to create the card base. Adding the larger piece of Basic White to the inside.

On the strip on Soft Sea Foam, stamp the smaller turtles - the outline on Soft Sea Foam ink and the shell detail in Shaded Spruce - making sure you alternate the directions of the turtles so it looks random. Add this to the centre of the card front.

Stamp the ribbon/streamers in Soft Sea foam all over the Soft Sea Foam card stock square. Layer this to the Soft Suede card and then wrap around some bakers twine towards the top. Add this to the centre of the card front.

On a scrap of basic white, stamp the larger turtle outline and cut out with the turtle punch. Colour in with a crumb cake blend. Stamp the shell detail in Shaded Spruce, then colour in between the plates with the crumb cake blend and then fussy cut. Add this to the turtle - then add to the card on the square section.

Stamp the sentiment onto a scrap of Soft Sea Foam, layer onto shaded spruce and add to the card.

It's a pretty simple design, relying on different layers and heights to create the interest and I'm really happy with how it turned out.

I hope you enjoyed it too, please continue through the hop and see what all the other talented ladies have done with this Tic Tac Toe Board. The Lovely Jill Chapman is up next - click the button to head on over....
