Penguin 21st Birthday Card

Hello and welcome back.

I made today's card for a colleagues 21st birthday and she as loves penguins so it just had to be penguins. This is a really derpy looking penguin, but it's such a fun little penguin, this has got to be one of my favourites.

The base card is Smoky Slate, with a layer of Whisper White card on top. The Whisper White card has been put through the Big Shot in the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. So pretty...

I made two banners for the sentiment and stamped Happy on one in Smoky Slate ink and Birthday on the other, the sentiment is from the set Big On Birthdays, its photopolymer so I cut the Happy Birthday stamp to separate the Happy and the Birthday... I love that you can do this with this type of stamp...

The Penguin is a template I made from a picture I had seen, the bow is made using the Bow Builder Punch (in the main catalogue) this makes such cute little bows and the heart is also a Stampin'Up punch.

I made the balloon using the 2 1/2" Circle punch and added a little hand cut frill to it. I then covered it with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter, it gives it such a shimmery look to the balloon. I cut out the 21 using the Large Number Framelits, these and the matching Large Letter Framelits are my New Best Friends......
I love how this came out and luckily so did the recipient....

Dragonfly Dreams

Hi there and welcome back....

Today's card features the beautiful Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set, which includes that gorgeous little Bumblebee from Monday's card.

The base card is Marina Mist, with a layer of Whisper White card on top. This top layer has been embossed using the Softly Falling Embossing folder.

I stamped the dragonfly in Marina Mist ink and then cut it out using the matching Dies, you could fussy cut it, but the die makes it so much easier.

I created a little banner for the sentiment to go on, stamped in Marina Mist on Whisper White card.

I added a Doily which I stamped some splodges on using one of the stamps from Gorgeous Grunge, again in Marina Mist ink and then I added the Dragonfly on top.

Bumblebee Blooms

Hey there and welcome back...

I am so happy to share today's card, it features one of my favourite things....Bumble Bees...I don't know why but I just adore them!!

I have used two stamp sets on this card, Birthday Blooms (main Catalogue) and Dragonfly Dreams (New in the Spring/Summer Catalogue).

The base card is Wild Wasabi, I stamped the flower image on to Whisper White card and then water coloured the image with Wild Wasabi for the leaves, Pink Pirouette for the petals and Crushed Curry for the Stamen.

I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black and stamped the Bumble Bees in Basic Black on a separate piece of Whisper White card and fussy cut them out. There is a matching die set which you can use to cut them out but I wanted a close cut.

I added them to the card using dimensionals and added some Wink of Stella to the wings to make them sparkle.

Below is a list of products used to create this card, if you would like to order anything just click on a product and it will take you to my online store...Thank You..
