Hello Baby, Moon Baby Newborn Card using Stampin Up Products

Hi Everyone,

I absolutely love making New Baby cards, you get to use cute images and make something very special. Today's project has been so much fun to create.


Using the Moon baby stamp set and a hand full of ink, I managed to create this beautiful card. adding dimensionals and fussy cutting the image has really made this card pop. Keeping the colour pallete simply and choosing one stamp set, means you an make this card in no time.


Product List
Now, usually a New Baby card would be heading to a new family, but this is going into a collection that a local boutique baby store is going to stock for me..

Thanks for taking a look at my card today. I hope to see you all again soon.

Shine Bright Like A Diamond Greetings Card using Stampin Up products

Hi Everyone,

One of my best friends has just got a promotion and it's a job she will be absolutely perfect for! I'm so excited for her. I wanted to make a card which wasn't your run of the mill 'new job' card, and whilst flicking through the catalogue I came across this card and could wait to CASE it.


Here's my version, I didn't have any glimmer paper left so I improvised and used silver foil. I really liked the finished card.


Using the You're Priceless stamp set I created a beautiful and bold background, with the sentiment embossed in white and black card stock helps it really stands out.

Product List
It was quick and simple and I hope you like it as much I do and I'm sure my friend will do too.


Thank you for taking a look at my project today.

I hope to see you again soon

Party Panda Birthday Card using Stampin Up Products

Hey Everyone,

I have been dying to get my hands on this Party Panda stamp set. It's a Sale-a-Bration exclusive - You can't buy it, only earn it!! If you are not familiar with Sale-a-Bration - head over to my webstore and find out more!

Here's the card I created today and I'm chuffed with how it turned out, it was quick and simple and I used mainly scraps! Bonus!!


I used the solid balloon from Balloon Celebration to create a background, although you don't see much - I think it help create a bit more interest. Using small scraps of whisper white I angled the panda stamp in a few ways to make it less repetitive. Layered up on some coloured card stock and a little bit of colouring and these panels are done.

Adding a piece of Shimmer ribbon from the combo pack under the sentiment helped add a little bit of sparkle, plus this is also a Sale-a-bration freebie!!


Thanks for stopping by today, don't forget to head over to my contact page or my webstore to get more information on Sale-a-bration, especially if you would like to get your hands on this stamp set.

I hope to see you again soon.

Flower Shop & Eastern Palace Just for you Card using Stampin Up Products


Hello,

I have created my card today for the #Stampinforall FB colour challenge. We were given Dapper Denim, Fresh Fig & Tranquil Tide as our colours and that's pretty much the brief! 



I struggled at first with what to do as I haven't got Dapper Denim ink, but after looking through my DSP noticed that the Eastern Palace paper had the colour I needed to create my base, using the flower shop stamp set and the pansy punch I created a bold card using all three colours selected. The everyday label punch created the shape I used as a 'window' and I stamped the sentiment on the inside so it can be seen through the card.

Adding some clear faceted gems and some very vanilla bakers twine helped my pull this card together.

Thank you for taking a look at my project today, I hope to see you soon.

Fresh Fig Heartfelt Sympathy Card using Stampin Up products

Hey Everyone,

I absolutely love crafting and making cards for every occasion, but I always have a heavy heart when I get asked to make a sympathy card. A friend of mine asked me to make them a card to give to someone and I'm pleased with the results of the card, although it be a sad one.



Fresh Fig and gold seem to be a great combination. I love the simplicity of this card, using bold colours, heat embossing and ribbon help create a luxury feeling card.


I used heat embossing to create the shiny sentiment, and the gold ribbon shines the same, so when I punched out a circle for the centre of the flower from our gold foil sheets - it didn't look right as it didn't match and I struggled to figure out how to make it compliment the rest of the gold! Only one solution and it was to heat emboss.

Taking the versamark ink pad and 'smush' it onto a scrap of whisper white, sprinkle with embossing powder and heat. You will be left with a patch of heat embossed gold. Take the desired punch and create the shapes. I used the small circle from the cookie cutter punch as it was the perfect size for this flower, but this technique will work with any shape.

Product List
Thanks for taking a look at today's project.

I hope to see you all soon
