Party Puffins

Our niece just celebrated her birthday. I found this card on Pinterest & knew I had to case it for her. The black & white paper is from the retiring True Love DSP. The Party Puffin #155054 was stamped using Memento Black ink then coloured in with Stampin’ Blends. I added Wink of Stella to the candle flames & the dots on the party hat. The Happy Birthday sentiment was heat embossed using white embossing powder on Pool party cardstock then die cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies. I used a retired silver thread for a subtle flare behind the sentiment. The Basic White stamped image was die cut from the Stitched So Sweetly die set.

Floral Mother’s Day Card

Yes, another Mother’s Day card! Inspired from Pinterest as usual.. This card could easily be changed to any occasion. I used the Jar of Flowers stamp set for the jar & flowers. I coloured the flowers using Stampin’ Blends. I added a little of Wink of Stella for good measure to add a subtle bling to the card. The background paper is a retired DSP. I die cut the Basic White card using the Stitched Rectangles dies (151820). I used the Banners Pick a Punch (153608) to create the banner for the sentiment. The bow was created using the retired Mossy Meadow 3/16″ braided linen trim (154298).

More Mother’s Day Cards

This card was made for our son to give to his grandma. Sadly, the Kangaroo & Company bundle is retiring on June 30th. However, I will be holding on to it. The blue background was created using the Blending Brushes (153611) & Balmy Blue ink. I coloured the kangaroo using the Stampin’ Blends then die cut them out with the coordinating dies. I just love that cute little envelope that fits perfectly in the kangaroos pouch. The heart from the Resin Hearts (154578) fits perfectly on the stamped heart on the envelope. The Basic White cardstock was die cut using the new Scalloped Contours dies (155560).

The inside sentiment is from a new stamp set found on page 52 of the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue called Inspired Thoughts (155536). It is part of a bundle but for this card, I only used the sentiment, not the dies. On the inside, I also stamped a little roo.

Happy Mother’s Day!

I hope all the mom’s out there are enjoying the day to celebrate the best profession out there. I am one of the lucky ones that still have my mom here to celebrate. A special card was needed to send to a special mom.

Although the Designer Series Paper (DSP) is retired, the stamp set Free as a Bird is not. It can be found in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue on page 83, item number 149468. I fussy cut the bird & flowers & popped them up using dimensionals. I coloured the bird & flowers using Stampin’ Blends. The Basic White background was die cut using the new Scalloped Contours dies (155560). I added a little bling in the centre of the flowers using the now retired frosted & clear epoxy dots. I dressed up the envelope using the same retired DSP.

Another Gift Card Holder

I have really enjoyed decorating the tin gift card holders this year! For this guy, I started with Trimming the Town DSP as the base. The Whisper White circle was die cut using the Stitched Shapes dies (152323). Tucked behind the circle is retired Mercury Glass acetate die cut using the Beautiful Boughs dies (150661). I stamped the owl from the Have a Hoot set (153389) onto the Whisper White circle. I stamped it again on a scrap of Whisper White then die cut it out using the coordinating Peek-a-Hoot die (153573). I popped the owl up using dimensionals. I used Stampin’ Blends to colour the owl & branch. The sentiment is from the retired Tin of Tags stamp set using Memento Black ink. I punched it out using the Banners Pick a Punch (153608) & popped it up with dimensionals.
