Picture Perfect Birthday Card!

How pretty is this birthday card?! It is made using the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set. 




It is from the 2018 Spring/Summer Catalogue and is part of the Picture Perfect Party Suite.




It is part of a whole suite full of pretty products,


 


 For this card I have used just the stamp set but I love the colours in the Suite and was inspired to use them in the card.




I used Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist. I have replaced the Berry Burst with Flirty Flamingo to change it up a little.

Here is my You Tube Video for this card




I really hope you like the video, Give me a thumbs up and subscribe if you'd like to see more.

The Bermuda Bay card base is A4 cut at 14.8 cm , scored at 10.5 cm
The Whisper White Layer is cut at 14.3 cm x 10 cm.


The bows are stamped onto the card and I also fussy cut a few out and attached with dimensionals to give some depth.


I have added in a few of the Adhesive Backed Sequins in Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist. 

 

I love this sentiment! Perfect for any celebration.


One with Happiest Of Birthdays To You.


There are 18 stamps in this set and it's price is just £15! I have only used a couple of the images on this card and I already have plans for lots of the other images. The party noise blower is so cute! So watch out for more projects with this stamp set on my blog.

 Card layer is 14.3 x 10 cm.  Card base is in Night of Navy at 14.8 cm x 10 .5 cm. Inside panel in Whisper White is 14. 3 cm x 10 cm.

Splattered ink on the Stitched Square die cut.

"You're Awesome" inside in Night of Navy with Real Red stamped over the top. 

Its a fun, useful set. Perfect for music lovers and teenagers too and I know exactly who these two cards will be going to.

Saleabration Sunday! I Beautiful Day Card I Customer Thank You's!

Saleabration runs for 12 weeks until March 31st which takes it right up to British Summer Time on March 25th marked by the clocks going forward bringing in the lighter evenings and I can't wait!



Every Sunday I will be bringing you a new project from Saleabration as we craft our way into Spring!

This week we have the Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes 


In Calypso Coral, Lemon Lime Twist, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party

They are made with lovely thick card stock , four of each colour and the matching envelopes have designs inside too.


Perfect to rustle up a card quickly. I have used the Beautiful Day stamps. Isn't this butterfly gorgeous!


I stamped him once in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto the card front and again onto a scrap of Whisper White. I coloured him in using the Blends- Stampin' Up!'s new alcohol markers.
I have used Bermuda Bay dark and light and Pool Party dark and light. After cutting him out and inking around his edges I attached a couple of the mini dimensionals to his middle only and fixed him to the card.


Can you see that he is slightly sparkly? I have coloured his wings with clear of Wink Of Stella. I added a couple of the new self adhesive sequins and stamped Thank You from Thankful Thoughts stamp set. Don't forget to stamp your envelope too.


I stamped Thank you inside too and added another butterfly stamped off the edge.

Here is my You Tube tutorial of how I made it.

You can get these cards and envelopes free with a £45  spend with Stampin' Up! throughout Saleabration. They are so pretty and handy to have on hand for card making.


This time Daffodil Delight card base. I have used Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Blend pens in dark and light and again added a couple of the self adhesive sequins in Daffodil Delight.

I have a few to make as they are my customer Thank You cards for January and will be going out in the post at the end of the month with a little thank you gift to my customers. Just a little something to show then how much I appreciate their custom.

Fruit Basket - You Are The Sweetest! And You Tube Video.


I love the Tutti Frutti Suite in the new Spring Summer Catalogue. 

I was lucky enough to get the set of Mini Fruit Punches at Onstage in November. Onstage is a twice yearly convention held by Stampin' Up! just for it's demonstrators. We get to see all the new products before they are launched and take home plenty of freebies too!


So in my Pre Order I had to add the rest of the Suite of course! The matching stamp set is so fun and I love the coordinating 6 x 6 papers and self adhesive sequins too.





Both sides of the papers are lovely!

I had a Spring/Summer Catalogue /Saleabration Open House Party on Friday and this is the card we made for our Make n Take. So simple and easy to make a pretty Birthday card using just stamps and punches.


I used my favourite colour combo right now which is Lemon Lime Twist and Powder Pink. I added in some Real Red for the strawberries and a few Pool Party self adhesive sequins to finish it off.

Here is my You Tube video of how I made it.



Please click the subscribe button if you enjoyed the video. It means alot to know you are watching. 

We had so much fun with it, the ladies made a great job of their cards. We had a lovely evening. It's so much more fun to stamp with friends and share the excitement when a new range of products is released. Lots of cards were made and we had a raffle winner too.



I didn't use the papers on Friday's card but I included it on this one from previous card. Can you tell how much I love this colour combo 😂 I included the sequins in Lemon Lime twist on this one.

Happy Wishes Card for Sale-a-bration!! Inspire Create Stamping Challenge 009!

Over at the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge this week the theme is Love!💕




I have been playing with some new products from Stampin' Up!'s new Spring Summer Catalogue and  the Sale-a-bration brochure which I thought would be perfect for this theme. I chose to put a twist on my card using this gorgeous Happy Wishes stamp set so that it's not a traditional kind of card such as Anniversary or Valentine's though it would be easy to do that with these stamps. Sometimes our best friends need a little love too!


The Sweet Soiree Speciality Designer Series Papers are just gorgeous! They are foiled in silver and are double sided with a card stock weight, perfect for cards, boxes and lots of different paper craft.


I have made my base from Pool Party card stock. A4 card, cut in half at 14.8 cm and scored at 10.5 cm.  My layer of DSP is just half a cm smaller at 14.3 cm x 10 cm.

I have used a fabulous new stamp set called Happy Wishes to make my card. It is full of so many sentiments and so versatile. I particularly love the large words. 
The best thing about it is that it is FREE with Saleabration! 





The sentiment is stamped in Caypso Coral and Pool party to match. I have made two slightly different cards. Can you see how I embossed the "Best" in clear embossing powder over the Pool Party ink to make it pop a little?




This one is not embossed and I have changed the colour I have stamped the heart from Heart Happiness and used Pool Party ink.  I like them both. Which is your favourite?



I have used the beautiful Shimmer Ribbon in Pool Party to match from the Stampin' Up! annual catalogue. We have such a gorgeous selection of ribbons to choose from. I have dotted a few of these lovely adhesive backed sequins too in Pool Party.


Watch  my You Tube video to see how I made it and the stamps and papers I have used here.




I hope you liked my video. If you did, please give me a thumbs up and subscribe!

Pop over to the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge HERE You can see what the rest of the Design team have come up with for this theme, see the entries and play along if you like. It's great fun and if you win you can display the badge on your blog too! We would love to have you!

Epic Celebrations. Sale-a-bration Sunday




Stampin' Up!s Spring Summer Catalogue launched this week along side Saleabration! It is full of fresh Spring colours and beautiful images. Sale-a-bration gives you FREE stamp sets and products for every £45 or £90 spend in either of the current catalogues!

Saleabration runs for 12 weeks until March 31st which takes it right up to British Summer Time on March 25th marked by the clocks going forward bringing in the lighter evenings and I can't wait!

Every Sunday I will be bringing you a new project from Saleabration as we craft our way into Spring!

This week we have Epic Celebrations!



I love the images in this stamp set. Perfect for teenagers or young adults. Anyone really as I live in my Converses too!



My card base is Whisper White A4 cut at 14.8 cm and scored at 10.5 cm. My layer is Night of Navy cut just half a cm smaller at 14.3 cm x 10 cm. The next layer I have used for stamping is again Whisper White (the best there is to stamp on!- if you haven't already, then you should try it). This layer is 13.8 cm x 9.5 cm. I have used the sentiment from Picture Perfect Party stamps. I love this font!



You can see on my You Tube video here how I made the card.




I hope you like the video, please give me a thumbs up and click subscribe for future videos too!





I have made two versions of the card. The other one has the base made from Night of Navy card stock and has just the shoes. Which is your favourite?





I chose to use "You're Awesome" inside.

I love this quick and simple card. I used the Blends alcohol Markers to colour in the images. I love these markers, I can see myself making lots of these cards! If you would like to purchase the whole set of blends but would like to stagger the cost have a look at my Blends Club in the menu bar at the top. It may be perfect for you.
