New Home Card

A friend has just moved into a new home so obviously it needed a card to celebrate.

Stampin' Up! Badges & Banners

She’s popped a few pictures of her decorating progress on Facebook so I’ve taken my inspiration from her pink feature wall.

I stamped a background of Melon Mambo and Flirty Flamingo along with Rich Razzleberry accents.  The stamp set for the background is Playful Backgrounds and is one I keep reaching for more and more.  I’ve also used one of the stamps from Timeless Textures for some smaller dots.

The bird in the cage image is from Badges and Banners and I used Stampin’ Write Markers to colour it in once I’d stamped.

As I don’t have a ‘new home’ sentiment, I used the Labeler Alphabet set to make my own.  I love how I can create any sentiment I like with a set like this.

The Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and Silver Foil Card have created the strip behind the sentiment.

I added a strip of thin Silver Ribbon to the top of the cage and then made a cute little bow to match it too.

To finish, Wink of Stella on the bird and some Rhinestones have added the obligatory bling for this sparkly lady.

Happy crafting

Card for Dad

Earlier this month I ran a Papercrafting Class that introduced the ‘In Color’ collection for 2017-2019.

The card I’m showing you today is the one that concentrated on Tranquil Tide.

Stampin' Up! Badges and Banners

This is a dark green that I’ve teamed with colours suggested by Stampin’ Up! of Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Very Vanilla.  You can see the other combinations here.

We used Timeless Textures for the background, look how the Calypso Coral is more orange than pink against these other colours.

A strip of the new Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon across the middle ties everything together.  The Badges and Banners Stamp Set and matching Best Badge Punch create the sentiment.

At the time I designed the card I didn’t realise that this would end up being a Father’s Day card.  They were very well received by my Dad and Father-in-Law.

I’ll show you the rest of the cards we made at the class shortly.

To book your place at a future class head to my class timetable for more details.
