Jan 2018 Sneak Peeks


 

I’ve used the same stamp set that I used in my tutorial bundle project to make today’s card – Party Pandas. These guys are adorable! I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut them out, along with a balloon, present and party hats for the pandas from Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper.

 

Party Panda Birthday Card-1

 

I embossed some Powder Pink cardstock using the Brick Wall folder coated with Crumb Cake ink, then used the Hearth and Home Thinlits to make the window from Whisper White and Old Olive cardstocks. The sentiment from Party Pandas is white heat embossed on the windowsill.

 

Party Panda Birthday Card-2

 

The grass is a strip of paper from Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper which I’ve just cut to make look like grass. A little Basic Black Baker’s Twine for the balloon string and some sequins that I pulled off a length of black Mini Sequin Trim for the shaker finishes this cute panda birthday card!

 

Party Panda Birthday Card-3

I’ve used the same die that I used in my tutorial bundle project to make today’s card – Happy Birthday Thinlits. I used the large flower image from the Birthday Blooms stamp set to create a gorgeous background using Watercolour Pencils on Basic Black cardstock. I stamped the image in VersaMark ink and gold heat embossed it before colouring. (I also used an Embossing Buddy to prevent powder sticking where I didn’t want it to.) If you love colouring, this is a relaxing technique, and so stunning! I chose to use Crumb Cake cardstock for my card base, but you could also use Thick Whisper White or any other colour.

 

I die cut the happy birthday sentiment from Whisper White Cardstock and simply adhered it to the background using Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. I added a few gold Metallic Enamel Shapes to finish off the design.

I hope you enjoyed this project. If you would like to follow my blog by email, click here so you don’t miss a single blog post. Next up is the amazingly talented Jacque Williams with some inspiration for you.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Watercoloured Background Birthday Card for WWYS #123


Hi and welcome to this week’s What Will You Stamp? Challenge. The stamp set were using this week is fabulous – Happy Birthday Gorgeous. I just love the delicate two-step flowers and the font of the sentiments.


 

I got my inspiration for this week’s card from the talented Kristine Werner who did a similar card a while back. The solid flower images are stamped using the “rock and roll” technique and then using either a paint brush or aqua painter to pull the colour into the flower centre.


 

The leaves were stamped and the colour pulled into the centre of the image as well. I then added a second colour to the leaves. The background is Sahara Sand and Island Indigo, dried with a heat tool between each application.

The sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and the card is finished off with Wink of Stella on the flowers and a smattering of Glitter Enamel Dots.

That’s the Tag Birthday Card for WWYS #114


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This week I’ve made a pretty birthday card using images from the featured set, That’s the Tag. It can be purchased as a bundle with matching thinlits dies (but only until 31 May – it’s on the retiring list). It’s a great set for making tags, labels, cards or 3D projects – very versatile I think!


I’ve used a variety of techniques here including heat embossing, dry embossing and watercolouring for the flowers. And I just love how you can colour the gorgeous lace doilies from the Occasions Catalogue however you choose; I’ve smooshed the white side (they also have a Very Vanilla side) with black ink to give a dramatic mottled effect.

TIPS: 

1. Add a strip of glimmer paper (or cardstock) to delineate one “section” from another when partial embossing.

2. Spritz your cardstock with water before embossing to stop it cracking. (I forgot to do that here!)


I’ve repeated the little flower image that I stamped as a border on the tag as well, and threaded it with some ribbon and metallic thread. Can you spy the sneak peek? The green used for the sentiment and leaves is a new In Colour – Lemon Lime Twist. I’ve always loved Pear Pizzazz but I think I have a new favourite green!


I finished the inside of the card with another smooshed lace doily.

Thanks for visiting my blog. If you’ve left me a comment, thank you! You’ve made my day. Be sure to hop on over to the WWYS blog to see what everyone else has made and enter your own project. You could be our next guest designer!

It’s time to say goodbye to products from the Occasions and Annual Catalogues to make way for all the exciting new products which will be coming in June. Some old favourites and some recent ones, and a load of paper, cardstock and also the 2014-2016 In Colours will all be gone by May 31 and are available only while stocks last!

Carousel Birthday in Gold for WWYS #112

 


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. I hope you’ve all had a relaxing and happy Easter break. This week we’re playing with the gorgeous Carousel Birthday stamp set. I just adore this set and I’ve used some elements from the coordinating Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit.


My card has a shaker element which I made by cutting the middle from one of the tags in the kit. All my stamping has been gold heat embossed and I just love the effect of gold paired with the pinky-orange tones of Calypso Coral. The sequins are also from the kit.

TIPS:

1. Removing the paper covering from the top of the adhesive tape prior to adhering it to your card will make it easier to manipulate it into the shape required.

2. To prevent sequins getting stuck to the adhesive tape around the shaker element, rub over the inside of the tape with an embossing buddy.

Sadly, we’ll be saying goodbye to this suite at the end of May. If you’ve had your eye on these products, now is the time to grab them as they’re on the retiring list. The paper I’ve used on the front of my card is from the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack which is currently 30% off, and the embellishment kit is 20% off.  I think these products will sell out fast and they’re only available while stocks last.


I finished the inside of the card simply with a coordinating sentiment in gold.

Balloon Adventures Pop-Up Card for WWYS #109


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This week’s stamp set is Balloon Adventures. I love the amazing fonts in the sentiment images in this set! Here’s my card:


I went for a fun fold card with a pop-up element and it was inspired by a lady named Barb from www.barbstamps.com. Pull the sides of the card and the balloons pop up. How fun is that?!


You can write on the back of the card, which is also decorated.

Quick & Easy Birthday Card

Hello and welcome. I just wanted to pop in quickly and share a quick and easy birthday card using the Birthday Blast Bundle from the Occasions Catalogue.

I made this 60th card for a male friend recently, and it took me all of 10 minutes to make. It would probably have taken 5 but for the heat embossing! This bundle is a must have if you like quick and easy. And this bundle really packs a punch too – it’s so easy to make a card that has a big impact. And I love that it’s suitable for a male or female – just change the colours. Kids would love it too.


And here’s the inside:


I love this font, don’t you? And it looks stunning heat embossed.

I’ve added this card to the Crazy Crafters’ Team Project Highlights, hosted by Kylie Bertucci. Each week we get the opportunity to be highlighted on Kylie’s blog and visitors are able to vote for their top three picks. If you’d like to vote for my card and see what the other talented Crazies have been making, you can do that here.

Birthday Fiesta Card for WWYS #70

There are sooooo many gorgeous products in this year’s Annual Catalogue and this is one of them – the Birthday Fiesta stamp set. I just adore this suite of products and it’s Mexican theme – bright colours, delightful patterns, and oh! who cannot help but love that cheeky llama?! This is our challenge stamp set this week over at WWYS. Hardly a challenge I say!

Birthday Fiesta SS

And here’s what I created:

Birthday Fiesta-1

This was the first time I played with this set and it was so much fun.  The possibilities are endless and it has a matching framelits set, Designer Series Paper and embossing folder.  And no, you won’t find Melon Mambo Pom Pom trim in the catalogue – I used my reinker to dye it.  Cool huh?

If you like these colours, feel free to pin this colour snapshot, and you can find more colour inspiration here too.
