Using Sponge Daubers, the background Very Vanilla piece is given a mottled effect.

Then, the toadstools are coloured with Real Red and Crumb Cake, and the edges of the leaves with Pear Pizzazz. Again, the colouring is with Sponge Daubers.

A sentiment fom the Ornate Thanks Dies is then raised up on Dimensionals.

Finally, some of the gorgeous Matte Decorative Dots are added to the project.

For National Black Cat Day

As today is National Black Cat Day, I couldn’t not share these cute kitties!National Black Cat Day. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG DesignsUsing a Basic Black, Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pie colour combination, I set about creating these fun felines.

First, the background is stamped tone-on-tone using the star image from the Penguin Place Stamp Set. These are then given some sparkle with some Wink of Stella.

Next, the top Basic Black layer has holes cut in it using the Picture This Dies. This is turned into a wall using the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder. I have given it some extra depth using a White Ink Pad and a Sponge Dauber.

The new Halloween Punch from the July-December Mini Catalogue provides the cat faces. For the tails, these are cut using the Cat Punch and stuck behind the holes.

Each cat is then stuck to the back of a hole to allow it to peep through.

Using Dimensionals, the whole black piece, with the attached cats is then added.

A bow made from Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack is popped into one of the smaller holes.

Finally, In Color Jewels make the cat eyes and some additional sparkle within the holes.

The third project from October’s SSOTM Class is full of holes!

It uses the Picture This Dies to create the circle cut out in Fresh Freesia.

A present, balloon and snowflakes are stamped in Balmy Blue onto a backing piece for them to be seen through the holes, along with the birthday sentiment.

The Penguin Place Stamp Set and Penguin Builder Punch Bundle also provide the penguins. These are stuck on the back to peek through their holes before lots of Dimensionals are added to the back.

It is then stuck to the white backing piece, before the whole section is attached to the base card.

Turtle Friends with Penguin Playmates DSP

I thought it was time to play with the Turtle Friends Bundle (Turtle Friends Stamp Set & Turtle Punch) again.

Turtle Friends with Penguin Playmates DSP. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

This time, I’ve paired it with the Picture This Dies and the FREE SAB Penguin Playmates DSP. There are some non-penguin patterns on the reverse side that are great for lots of different projects.

These SAB items are only available until the end of September, while stocks last.

My colour combination of Just Jade and Soft Sea Foam is taken from the DSP.

Turtle Friends with Penguin Playmates DSP. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

Using the rectangle die from the set creates the cut out pieces. In these areas, the tiny tortoise, party hats, sentiment and grass are stamped in Just Jade on a Whisper White backing piece.

On a separate piece, the larger tortoise is stamped and then cut out with the coordinating punch from the bundle.

With my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends, I’ve coloured the tortoises and party hats.

The larger tortoise is then raised up over the bottom cut out using Dimensionals.

Finally, a touch of Wink of Stella is added to the party hats.

This is a great project for all ages!

It’s Your Time to Shine

This very pink project is for a friend who is a big fan of the colour.

It's Your Time to Shine. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

They have had some good things happen to them recently, so I wanted to send them a positive card.

It uses the new In Color of Polished Pink, with Basic White.

I’ve based my project on the picture on Page 152 of the Annual Catalogue.

The background is a piece of the Expressions in Ink DSP. A cut out from the Picture This Dies provides the layer above.

Daisies from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set are stamped and then cut out using the Medium Daisy Punch.

These have some Wink of Stella put in the centres and are layered together, then placed over the cut outs.

Edges of the sentiment are shaped using the Banners Pick a Punch before it is attached using Mini Dimensionals.

Finally, a few In Color Jewels are dotted around the project for a finishing touch.

Picture This With Peekaboo Farm

How much fun are these fab critters?

Peekaboo Farm. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

This Peekaboo Farm Stamp Set has 5 fabulous farm animals, a wall for the them to peek over, plus senitments and other images too.

Here I’ve used it with the new circle shapes from the Picture This Dies.

 

My main colour is Fresh Freesia, with the stamping of the coloured images in Basic Gray.

I cut my Fresh Freesia piece, plus a Basic White piece with the dies. This gives me the bits to peek through, plus the bits to stamp on.

Each image is stamped onto one of the cut out circles and is coloured using Stamping Blends. I used quite a lots of Blends for this project!

Peekaboo Farm. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

My Basic White pieces are stuck in place through circles, before the Fresh Freesia piece is raised up over them on Dimensionals.

For some added fun, I have stamped the hooves onto a separate sheet, cut these out and then stuck them overhanging the edge of the circles.

The finishing touch is some Loose Flower Flourishes on the head of the pig, and around the sentiment.

I can’t wait to use the other stamps in this set, and the other dies too.

This set is great for those who need to make cards for children, of all ages!
