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).

Merry Christmoose!

You got it, another Pinterest find. This is a super quick & simple card!

I started with a Whisper White card base. I layered it with Real Red cardstock cut to 5 ¼ x 4 & Whisper White cut to 5 x 3 ¾. Onto to the Whisper White, I stamped the moose from the Merry Moose stamp set (150494) using Early Espresso for his body then stamped the outline using Memento Black ink. Even though I did not get the stamps lined up perfectly, I liked the effect of snow on his back. The sentiment was stamped in Real Red. The hat & scarf were stamped in Real Red onto Whisper White CS then fussy cut out & adhered using dimensionals. I added Wink of Stella to the hat & scarf for a subtle bling. The layers were adhered to the card base using dimensionals.

The Merry Moose stamp set is on the retiring list; available while supplies last.

Teacher Gifts

For teacher gifts this year, I decided to make a stack of cards along with some other goodies. This card was CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) from Rhonda Wade. The stamp set Ridiculously Awesome (152512) is the stamp set Rhonda designed for her $1,000,000 sales.

I started with a Basic Grey cardstock. I layered it with Whisper White that was die cut using the Stitched Rectangles dies (151820). The next layer is from the Peony Garden DSP (152483) cut 4 ¾ x 3 ½. I stamped the sentiment in Smokey Slate onto Whisper White cardstock then die cut it using the Stitched Shapes (152323). I wrapped a piece of Shimmer Ribbon (152463) around the layered white & Peony DSP & tied it with a simple knot. Then I popped it up with dimensionals. I popped the circle sentiment up with dimensionals as well. The coloured vellum is retired but is currently on the clearance rack (149101 for $4.40) that I punched with the retired Leaf punch. I added a subtle bling by using the Wink of Stella on the FAITH letters. For a little extra something, I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems (152464).

Gnome For The Holidays

I started with Basic Grey cardstock. I layered it with Whisper White cut 2 x 4, Whisper White cut 3 ¼ x 4 embossed using a retired Decorative Dots EF (133520) & Basic Grey cut ½ x 4 to hide the seam of the 2 Whisper White layers. I layered a 3 x 3 Plaid Tidings DSP popping it up with dimensionals. The circles were die cut using Merry Merlot roughly 2 ⅝ circle & Basic Grey die cut using Stitched Shapes (145372). The circles were adhered using Tombow liquid glue. The gnome was inked in Memento black ink & coloured using Stampin’ Blends. I “fussy cut” the gnome & popped him up on dimensionals. On his beard, I used Wink of Stella (141897) to give it a subtle bling. For the final touches, I added a few Basic Pearls (144219). The sentiment is from the Banner Year stamp set (153464 stamped in Basic Grey.
