Bonanza Buddies Card

Hello and welcome to the fourth and final part of my Stampin’ Up! Birthday Bonanza Suite Showcase. If you have missed the previous instalments you can find them here (part 1 – gift tag, part 2 – cards, part 3 – cake toppers).

This week I wanted to share with you a really fun peek-a-boo card which would be perfect for a child’s birthday. It features the three cute characters from the Bonanza Buddies stamp set and is wonderfully colourful but easy to create. I hope you like it!

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock and I have rounded the corners using the Detailed Trio Punch. The windows were created using the 2″ (lion and koala) and 2.25″ (toucan) Circle Punches to allow the characters to ‘peek’ through.

All three characters are stamped onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the coordinating Bonanza Dies. The koala is stamped in Smoky Slate ink with Memento Tuxedo Black features; the toucan is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink with a Mango Melody beak; and the lion is stamped in Daffodil Delight ink with a Mango Melody mane and Memento Tuxedo Black features.

The characters were adhered to the inside of the card such that they ‘peek’ through the windows. The excess cardstock was removed using Paper Snips.

I have decorated the card front using the feature colours from the Suite – Terracotta Tile, Grapefruit Grove, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay.I have decorated the card front using the feature colours from the Suite – Terracotta Tile, Grapefruit Grove, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay.

The sentiment is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the 2″ Circle Punch. I have also decorated the sentiment piece using the balloon stamp, again using the feature colours. This is then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give the final touch to this simple but fun card.

Next time…

Bonanza Buddies Birthday Cards

Welcome to part 2 of my Stampin’ Up! Birthday Bonanza Suite Showcase. If you missed part 1, you can find it here.

This week I really wanted to introduce you to the cute characters in the Stampin’ Up! Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set. With that in mind I decided to create three cards using the same layout but each featuring a different character and sentiment. I hope you like them! Let me know if you have a favourite.

Let’s make them…

For the card bases I have used Terracota Tile (Koala), Coastal Cabana (Lion) and Daffodil Delight (Toucan) cardstock. Each of the main card fronts is created from Whisper White cardstock which has been embossed using the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder.

I have then trimmed pieces of the Birthday Bonanza DSP diagonally to fit the Whisper White cardstock layer. Wrapped around this is a length of Metallic Baker’s Twine (which can be yours for free with a qualifying spend during Sale-A-Bration). This is adhered at the back of the Whisper White layer using Tear & Tape and the whole piece of adhered to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The animals are stamped in: Smoky Slate (Koala); Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody (Lion) and Memento Tuxedo Black (Toucan) inks and cut out using the coordinating Bonanza dies. These are then layered onto cardstock cut out using the 2″ Circle Punch and the Starburst Punch in coordinating colours: Terracota Tile and Daffodil Delight (Koala); Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay (Lion) and Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight (Toucan). I then adhered these to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment pieces have been stamped on Whisper White (Koala and Lion) and Daffodil Delight (Toucan) cardstock in Terracotta Tile (Koala), Coastal Cabana (Lion) and Memento Tuxedo Black (Toucan) ink. The sentiment pieces are cut out using the Stitched Rectangles dies and adhered to the card fronts using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I hope you have enjoyed this blog post. If you have any questions or comments please leave them below or email me at helen@papercraftlife.com

Which of the characters is your favourite? I think mine is the Lion as I love the extra layering for his mane, face and tail!

Next time…

Birthday Bonanza Gift Tag

Welcome to Part 1 of my Stampin’ Up! Birthday Bonanza Suite Showcase! There is a slight change of plan this week as the Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set was on backorder and hasn’t arrived in time for the blog! However, I do have the Bonanza Dies and the Birthday Bonanza DSP so I designed a project using these. I hope you like it!

Let’s make it…

Start by cutting three of the tag shapes – two from Bermuda Bay cardstock, and one from the Birthday Bonanza DSP. Adhere the DSP tag to one of the Bermuda Bay cardstock tags to reinforce it. Next, cut a window out of the remaining Bermuda Bay cardstock tags using the Stitched Rectangles dies.

Cut the two banners from Birthday Bonanza DSP and adhere to the Bermuda Bay tag so that they cross the ‘window’. Trim so that you only have small ‘tails’ extending beyond the tag. Adhere this tag to your DSP tag using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Colour a length (approx. 20cm) of Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon using the Mango Melody Dark Stampin’ Blend. Thread this through the hole in the top of the tag. Finally, tie a length (approx. 15cm) of Whisper White Bakers twine around the ribbon for extra decoration and to stop it coming loose.

Next time…

Golden Honey DSP Card

Hello and welcome to the third instalment of my Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Stamp Set Showcase. If you missed the previous posts, you can find them here… part 1, part 2. This week I really wanted to make a card using the gorgeous Golden Honey Speciality DSP which you can earn for FREE with a £45 spend during the Sale-A-Bration event! If you would like more information about Sale-A-Bration feel free to email me: helen@papercraftlife.com or shop now.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White thick cardstock and I have followed this with a layer of Basic Black cardstock. The main card front is a piece of Whisper White cardstock which I have stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink with the two flower images from the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee stamp set. Alternatively, you could use a piece of the DSP which has a very similar design.

I have cut three circles from the DSP using the 2″ circle punch and adhered two of them directly to the card front. The sentiment is stamped onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the Stitched Rectangles. A larger Stitched Rectangle has been cut out of Basic Black and these have been layered together. However, I have offset them to give a slightly different effect.

The third DSP circle is adhered to the sentiment piece. I have also cut out a piece of Gold Foil Sheet using the Classic Label punch. The cut out was then snipped in half and both sections adhered to the back of the sentiment piece. The whole piece was then adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The black, white and gold foil combination from the DSP has been carried throughout the card and gives a sophisticated look. I think this card is really simple and effective and would be perfect for those people who are not so keen on bright colours.

Next time…
