Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake and Rococo Rose for a Friend

My friend is a fan of Rich Razzleberry and Crumb Cake, so I combined these with Rococo Rose for her Birthday Card.

With Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake and Rococo Rose as my main colours, they only needed Whisper White to join them.

Using leaf images from the Lovely You Stamp Set and Beautiful Autumn Stamp Sets, I stamped these to one side.

The Field of Flowers Stamp Set and Punch Bundle provide the small flowers. These are attached using Glue Dots, and Fine-Tip Glue for the tiny ones.

Many Mates and a Blender Pen provide the sentiment, cut out using the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Lovely You provides the larger flower images. I cut these out by hand and added a touch of Wink of Stella.

A length of Linen Thread wraps around the project behind the sentiment.

Finally, some Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins in co-ordinating Rich Razzleberry add some extra sparkle.

I really like this design and love it in Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake and Rococo Rose. It’s one I may try in other colour combinations too.

Daisy Lane, Crumb Cake & Watercolor Pencils

I’m sharing another floral project with you today made with Daisy Lane, Crumb Cake and Watercolor Pencils

Daisy Lane, Crumb Cake & Watercolor Pencils. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

This project is again inspired by the Annual Catalogue. If you head to page 13, you’ll see a similar project.

I chose to use Daisy Lane as my Stamp Set, with Rich Razzleberry as my main colour. I have stamped tone-on-tone on the Crumb Cake and then coloured using Watercolor Pencils. A Blender Pen over the colouring then helps to blend them together.

Even though the base card is Very Vanilla, I have stamped the sentiment from Lovely You onto a strip of Rich Razzleberry with a Whisper White Inkpad.

Using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, one end of the sentiment is shaped. The Stamp Set and Punch are available as a discounted Bundle.

This stamped and punched sentiment is then stuck over a bow from Linen Thread.

Finally, a few Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins in co-ordinating Rich Razzleberry, in different sizes, add a touch of sparkle. As they already have adhesive attached, they are easy to adhere.

In Color 50th

Today I’m going to share an In Color 50th Birthday Card I made for a lovely lady.

In Color 50th Birthday Card. Designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

I decided to use Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist and Powder Pink from last year’s In Color Collection. This combinations works really well together, especially teamed teamed with Whisper White for a crisp and fresh look.

Oh So Eclectic is my Stamp Set of choice, along with the co-ordinating Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies. For the sentiment I used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set and the Layering Circles Framelits.

Each flower is stamped and die cut, with a top layer also die cut. These are then stuck together.

As the Birthday was a 50th, additional accents just had to be in Gold, with Mini Sequin Trim and Faceted Gems.

The pieces are then all layered together to create depth.

As the recipient lives in Cyprus, I was lucky that they were visiting family in the UK for their Birthday and was therefore able to send it to them. I’m happy to report they were very happy with their card.

Bright Birthday Flower

What better way to celebrate during a dull February than with a bright Birthday flower.

Stampin' Up! Petal Passion Suite with HIPPOFROG Designs

It is a Birthday card for one of my regular class attendees.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve fallen head over heels for Stampin’ Blends, I’m also rather smitten with the Petal Passion DSP.  The two together make a stunning combination.

I’ve coloured the beautiful large flower from the DSP with Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends.

As the flower is the main feature, I wanted to keep the other items on the card to a minimum. To do this I used strips of Basic Black and Old Olive cardstock with Organza Ribbon and Mini Sequin Trim for an extra touch of sparkle and glamour. The finishing touch is the tiny Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes dotted on the background.

The simple sentiment is from Picture Perfect Birthday, again from the Spring/Summer Catalogue.

Picture Perfect Birthday

It was the Birthday of one of my regular class attendees this week so a card was definitely in order.

I reached for the perfect Birthday stamp set from the new Spring/Summer Catalogue, Picture Perfect Birthday.

Stampin' Up! Picture Perfect Birthday with HIPPOFROG Designs

The dotty background is from a Memories & More Card Pack.  I’m running a class on making cards using these card packs at the end of February.

It’s quite a clean and simple design as I wanted the strips of ribbon to make the project look like a wrapped parcel.  The Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set has a lovely 2-step bow and I’ve used it here.

Isn’t the sentiment lovely?  A great size to fit beautifully in the Everyday Label Punch (a carryover item from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue).

My colour inspiration of Berry Burst and Crushed Curry came from the dots on the background, with an added touch of gold in the circle layer and sequin trim.

As it’s a hand-delivered card, there are lots of layers separated with Dimensionals.  For a posted card, I would use fewer dimensionals and stick (excuse the pun!) to SNAIL instead.

There is Wink of Stella on the bow to give it a finishing touch too.

Lucky flowers

A very talented lady started a new chapter in her floristry training the other week.  I made her this bouquet of lucky flowers to wish her all the best.

Stampin' Up with HIPPOFROG Designs - Jar of Love

It is based on this recent Card & Cuppa project.

As she is a fan of orange, I’ve used Pumpkin Pie and Peekaboo Peach for the card, flowers and bow.

In the same way as the previous project, Jar of Love and Balloon Celebration Stamp Sets create the stems.  The stamped flowers are from the Number of Years Stamp Set and the other flower use the Tree Builder Punch.  Baby Bear Stamp Set gives us the bow cut out with the Holly Berry Builder Punch.

The sentiment is from the Banners for You Stamp Set and matching Bunch of Banners Framelits.

The finishing touches are a strip of mini Gold Sequins, Rhinestones and Wink of Stella.

Although this project uses lots of different stamp sets and accessories, I just love how they all combine together to make something completely different to the original designs.

What ‘different’ projects have you made?
