Endless Birthday Wishes Card for WWYS Challenge #65

I love a card that can be used for more than one occasion, and my card for this week’s WWYS Challenge, featuring the Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set fits the bill!  Yes, it does have a cake on it, but who’s to say it’s not a congratulations cake or a celebration cake for another special occasion?  Anyhow, you can see what the other Design Team members have created by clicking on the WWYS image below.  Want to join us and have a little fun?  You have until Sunday, May 22 at 10am to submit your entry.

#65 Endless Birthday Wishes

I decided to break out a few of the new In Colours for this week’s card – Emerald Envy, Dapper Denim and Flirty Flamingo.


Endless Birthday Wishes Card-1

I kept it pretty simple and just used jaunty angles for interest as well as a bit of embossing on the Emerald Envy panel (with the Decorative Dots folder – retiring May 31 – buy it in my online store for only $7.80 while stocks last).

This stamp set has loads of sentiments and you can put them together to customise your card.  I chose “it’s all about you” which is what makes this card multi-purpose.  I stamped all the sentiments in Dapper Denim ink (love it!), and watercoloured the cake with Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Soft Sky and Crushed Curry.  The dots in the background http://laparkan.com/buy-tadalafil/ were stamped in Soft Sky and mimic the embossed dots.

Rose Wonder Acetate Card for WWYS Challenge #64

Welcome to another WWYS Challenge post.  This week we’re using the Rose Wonder Stamp Set.  Click on the image below to see all the amazing projects from the design team, and to play along with us.

#64 Rose Wonder

I’m on a bit of a shaker ‘n’ copper kick at the moment.  When I started to design my project for this week’s WWYS Challenge, which is to use the beautiful Rose Wonder Stamp Set, I just knew I had to incorporate the dies that go with it – the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies.  I knew exactly how I wanted my rose to look, and created a copper embossed rose framed in black which, when turned over, is the exact reverse (as you can see from the picture of the inside of the card).  I couldn’t bring myself to just glue it down to cardstock.  That would have been such a waste!  So I sandwiched it between two pieces of Window Sheet and added the sentiment to the front panel using black Stazon ink.  So it’s a shaker card of sorts – pretty cool huh?

Apologies for the white reflection on the bottom left of this pic – it’s very difficult to photograph through acetate!


Rose Wonder Acetate Card-4

And here’s the reverse (inside).


Rose Wonder Acetate Card-2

And because the front is totally see-through except for the flower, I added a paper insert with the secondary sentiment.

Botanical Builder Gift Set for GDP033

posted in: 3D Projects, Birthday, Boxes, Cards | 10

I love making boxes, and when it’s an unusual one and comes with a matching card, even better!  I took up the challenge for this week’s Global Design Challenge.  I really like colour challenges and this one is lovely because it has some of my favourite colours!  Click on the image below to see what the design team has come up with and all the inspirational projects that have been entered.

GDP033

My inspiration for this box comes from Jessica Winter’s Diamond Box.  Jessica is an Artisan design team member.  To see her post, click on the image below.

Jessica Winter Diamond Box

I’ve adapted Jessica’s design to make a tall box, and I’ve included a co-ordinating card to go with it.


Botanical Builder Gift Set-1

I used the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies, and really went to town!  It is a bit OTT but I was having so much fun!  What do you think?


Botanical Builder Gift Set-2

I decorated the lid as well as all around the box.  The sentiment is from the Honeycomb Hello Stamp Set and the tag from Tags & Labels Framelits is threaded with Whisper White Baker’s Twine.


Botanical Builder Gift Set-3

For the card I used the sentiment from the Birthday Blooms Stamp Set.  Both sentiments were white heat embossed.


Botanical Builder Gift Set-4

I love the unusual look of the box and how, even though this it’s tall (a whopping 18 cm), it still sits flat and is very stable.  You could fit lots in it too!

Celebrate Today for GDP023

posted in: Birthday, Cards | 4

Phew!  I wasn’t sure if I would make the deadline for today’s Global Design Project challenge.  We’re in the midst of moving house at the moment!  So this post will be short and sweet.  Anyway, it’s a balloon theme challenge this week.  Woohoo!

GDP023

Hop on over and check out the awesome inspiration by clicking on the link above.

Here’s my card for this week’s challenge:

Celebrate_Today-1

The balloon was cut from Tangelo Twist cardstock using the Balloons Framelits and sponged with the same ink.  The other colour used was Real Red.  The bunting and bow were also cut with the Balloons Framelits.  The “happy” was cut from Real Red cardstock and black craft foam (for something different), layered and adhered to the balloon front.

Celebrate_Today-2

The “birthday” part of the sentiment is from the Party with Cake stamp set – I masked the happy.  And the sequins come from the Love Blossoms Accessory pack.

Everything was raised up on dimensionals.  I hope you like it.  … now back to packing!
