More Stars for Another Teenage Birthday

I recently shared this card I made for a teenage Birthday.

As I need to make cards for several Birthdays around this time, here is another version of the project for another teenage Birthday.

Another Teenage Birthday. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

It uses the same basic design, with a few tweaks.

My colour combination is Granny Apple Green, Smoky Slate, Pacific Point and Basic White.

As with the previous project, the background is stamped using the Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set. Don’t forget that this Stamp Set is on the Last Chance Products list. Grab it while you can!

Using the Starlit Punch and cardstock in all of the colours, several stars are cut out and scattered across the project.

Finally, a sentiment from the Art Gallery Stamp Set, cut out using the Tasteful Labels Dies is raised up on Dimensionals.

Stylish Stars for a Teenage Birthday

This Birthday card was one I recently made for a teenager.

We all know that making cards for teenagers can be tricky, so I decided to create a project with some stylish stars.

I started with my colour scheme of Smoky Slate, Pacific Point and Poppy Parade, with Basic White.

For the background, I’ve used the splatter images from the Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set in the three colours.

The stars are from the Starlit Punch and are scattered across the project.

A sentiment from the Artistically Inked Stamp Set is cut out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies and raised up on Dimensionals.

Finally, a couple of the smaller punched stars sit on the sentiment.

This design is great as the colours can be switched out to reflect favourite colours, or sports team etc.

Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Stars, Tags & Monochrome

Last week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa project was this monochrome card with tags and stars.

It would be a great card for a teenager or 21st.

Using Gray Granite and Basic White for the design works really well as the Gray Granite looks silver.

The star are cut using the Starlit Punch from the Mini Catalogue. A set in each colour. They are then coated in Wink of Stella.

These are stuck across the project with any overhanging pieces cut away.

Next, a tag from the Tailor Made Tags dies is stamped with the sentiment from the Turtle Friends Stamp Set, with some of the stars added too.

A length of the coordinating Shimmer Ribbon is threaded through the tags and tied together with a Baker’s Twine bow.

The tags are offset slightly and attached with Dimensionals to raise them off the page.

Finally, some silver Metallic Pearls are dotted across the project.

This is a great project to recreate in different colours, it would also make a fabulous Christmas card too.

Countdown to Christmas 2021 #1

What better day to start my Countdown to Christmas 2021, than World Cardmaking Day.

In my annual countdown, each week I’ll share a Christmas Card or project to help you get ahead with your festive crafting.

Most of my projects in this countdown are fairly quick and simple, and can be mass produced.

For this first project, I’ve used the fabulous new Stars are Shining Bundle (Stars are Shining Stamp Set and Starlit Punch) from the July-December Mini Catalogue.

It uses two shades of blue in Misty Moonlight and Night of Navy, with the background stars stamped in white.

The sentiment then sits off to one side.

Next, extra stars are stamped and punched out and placed on the background using Dimensionals.

Each of the stars on the project has a touch of Wink of Stella added for some added twinkle.
