Daisy Sending Well Wishes Your Way Greeting Card.

 Good Afternoon Everyone,


I hope you are well, It's Friday!! Yey!! although the wind and the rain are still around, to be honest doesn't look like it's going away any time soon! But we must carry on!!

Today I have such a super simple card. A bit of Punching and stamping and that is it. 



Measurements

Real Red Cardstock

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

1pc - 2 1/8" x 1 3/4"

Scraps for the Daisy

Whisper White Cardstock

2pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - 2" x 1 4/8"

Daffodil Delight Cardstock

scrap for the Daisy.

Take your Real Red Cardstock and fold along the score line, add a piece of whisper white to the inside and one to the card front.

Punch out two daisy shapes in the real real and one in Daffodil Delight. Gently curl the edges of the real read flowers and adhere together offsetting the petals to create a full flower. Take the Daffodil Delight daisy and trim off all the petals, so that you at left with a circle. Add this to the centre of the red daisy then add this flower to the card front, towards the top.

Stamp the sentiment from Dandelion Wishes onto the small piece of whisper white, layer it to the real red and then add to the card front below the Daisy.

I told you it was super simple didn't I? This design and layout means you could easily switch up the colours and sentiment to create a card perfect for the occasion you need, and it's a great card to batch make.

Birthdays are the Best Days Card using the Rubber Band Technique

 Good Morning Evening,

Hope you are all well.

Today I have another technique for you - The Rubber Band Technique! This is so much fun, and not a messy as you would think. I used a variety of Blue tones to create a fab masculine Birthday Card.



Measurements

Bermuda Bay Cardstock

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

Whisper White Cardstock

2pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - 1 3/4" x 1 1/2"

Pacific Point Cardstock

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

Take your piece of Bermuda Bay card stock and fold along the score line to create your card base, add one of the larger pieces of whisper white to the inside.

Wrap a few rubber bands around a clear block in lots of different directions and then lightly press this into your ink pad and then stamp onto the larger piece of whisper white. Start with the lightest colour and build up the background layers getting darker each time. Clear off the excess ink before moving onto another one with a baby wipe, just so you don't taint the ink pads. Once you are happy with the design, Hold the block over the bin and snip off the rubber bands - it's far easier and less messy to do it this way! haha! 

Add this layer to the card front.

Finally stamp the sentiment onto the remaining piece of whisper white, then layer onto the pacific point cardstock. 

Place this onto the card front with dimensionals.

Fancy Phrases Triple Layer Birthday Card

 Good Morning Everyone,

Hope you're ok, it's still miserable here in Huddersfield. Hope it's better wherever you are.

Today I have a really lovely cars to share with you. It's not the quickest card I've ever made but it's soooo worth the time to get these fab results.



I have used the triple layer stamping technique and the larger floral image from Fancy Phrases for my card today. 

Measurements 

Pear Pizzazz Cardstock

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

1pc - 3 1/8" x 4 3/4"

1pc - 2 1/8" x 3 3/4"

Whisper White Cardstock 

2pc - 3 7/8" x 5 1/2"

1pc - 2 7/8" x 4 1/2"

1pc - 1 7/8" x 3 1/2"


Take the largest piece of Pear Pizzazz and fold along the score line. Add one of the larger pieces of whisper white to the inside.

Take the rest of the whisper white pieces and layer on top of each other. Use a low tak or removable adhesive, or add a small amount if seal then tap it on your clothes or arm to remove some of the sticky.

Add the sentiment to the centre, then ink up the floral image and cover the rest of the Blank space, making sure you stamp over all three layers. Don't worry, it is normal that that ink will 'miss' close to the next layers but this will be covered by the cardstock layers. 

Once the ink has dried colour in the flowers and leaves using your Stampin Blends.

Now gently take the layers apart, making sure you pay attention to which way round they belong as you want the images to continue across all three layers.

Take each piece of whisper white and layer it against the pear pizzazz and then add to the cars front.

Moving Along Happy Birthday Card featuring Cute Cars

 Good Morning Everyone,


Happy Monday - Hope you are all really well today - It's pretty miserable here today in Huddersfield - the rain is pounding down and it's very grey and miserable so we are staying in and not venturing outside unless we really have to today!! haha

I wanted to share this fab card with you, using the Moving Along stamp Set I've created a fab focal point using the card images, and the bright bold colours really do work for a younger persons card.



Measurements

Crushed Curry Cardstock

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

Pacific Point Cardstock

1pc - 3 3/4" x 5 1/2"

Coastal Cabana Cardstock

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

Whisper White Cardstock

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

1pc - 4 3/4" x 2 7/8" 


Create your card base by folding the Crushed Curry along the score line. Add the larger piece of whisper white to the inside, then layer the coastal cabana onto the pacific point and then onto the card front.

On the remaining piece of whisper white, stamp the car outline image down the centre of the card. I stamped two front the top, then three up from the bottom, this gave a small area in which to add the sentiment.

Using the card infill stamp, colour in each car with a different bright colour. Add this panel to the card front.

Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment in real red onto a scrap of whisper white, trim and then layer onto a piece of real red cardstock. Add this with dimensionals to the space you created between the cars.

It's a very simple and really easy card to create, and you can easily switch up the colours to suit.
