Absolutely Fabulous!

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share with you a card I created for the latest AAA Cards Challenge. Click the link to find out more about these challenges, see the other entries or join in. The guidelines for the challenge are shown below…

You may have guessed which TV show inspired my card from the title of my post! Here is another ‘clue’…

Here is my card…

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Mango Melody cardstock and that is followed by a 13.9 x 10 cm layer of Whisper White cardstock.

The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Although only a single image was allowed I wanted to get more colour onto the card so I decided to ink up the stamp using Sponge Daubers to get a multi-colour effect. The image is from the Stampin’ Up! Birthday Backgrounds Stamp Set. I tried to match the colours from the TV show’s title image and used: Mango Melody, Melon Mambo and Pineapple Punch.

Retirement Party Card!

Let me make one thing clear before we get started, I don’t normally name my cards! However, this one just had to be called ‘Retirement Party’ because it features all of the retiring In Colours and my favourite retiring bundle – Stitched All Around, and it has such a happy, party feel to it!

This card was created for the latest Global Design Project Challenge. Click on the link to find out more about these challenges, see other entries and join in. The sketch for the challenge is shown below…

Here is my take on the sketch…

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a 13.9 x 10 cm layer of standard Whisper White cardstock which I have coloured using a Sponge Brayer. The colours used on this layer are Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick.

I have cut lengths of each of the In Colour 2018-2020 Grosgrain Ribbons and stapled them to the coloured layer – I also used a small piece of Tear & Tape (positioned such that it would be covered by the die cuts) to hold them in place.

The large label from the Stitched Labels Dies is cut out of Whisper White cardstock and I have used the Call Me Clover Stampin’ Write Marker to create a splatter effect. The edge of the label is trimmed and it is then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is stamped in Blueberry Bushel ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the long label from the Stitched Labels Dies. Again I have used a Stampin’ Write Marker to create a splatter effect. The sentiment piece is adhered to the larger label using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The final touch is provided by some of the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots in Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover and Lovely Lipstick.

SU Garden Lane DSP Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you a card I created for a sketch challenge. The challenge was hosted by The Spot. You can find out more about these challenges, see the other entries and join in here.

The sketch for the challenge is shown below.

I decided to combined the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Garden Lane DSP with Daisies created using the Daisy and Medium Daisy Punches.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card simply scroll to the bottom of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Mossy Meadow cardstock. This is followed by a layer of the Stampin’ Up! Garden Lane DSP; and, to fit with the sketch, a band of another sheet of the DSP.

The Daisies are cut from Whisper White cardstock using the Daisy and Medium Daisy Punches. The centres are cut from Mango Melody cardstock using the 0.5″ Circle Punch. The Leaf Punch is used to cut leaves from Mossy Meadow cardstock. Punched leaves are adhered to the back of the large daisy and one of the smaller daisies and these are adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is stamped onto Mossy Meadow cardstock using Versamark ink and heat embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The sentiment is from the Stitched All Around Stamp Set and is cut out using the coordinating Stitched Labels Dies.

A length of Mossy Meadow Linen Thread is tied in a bow through the holes in the die cut. The final small daisy is shaped and adhered to the die cut using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the whole sentiment piece is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I think the contrast between the rich Mossy Meadow and bright Whisper White looks great and the small elements of Mango Melody just add that finishing touch.

Stitched All Around Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you a card I created for the March SU! Colour Challenge. You can find out more about these Colour Challenges, see other entries or join in on their Facebook page. This month the colour combination is: Balmy Blue, Sahara Sand, Cajun Craze and Pretty Peacock – wow! Balmy Blue is a bit of a curve ball in there!

If you would prefer to watch me create the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial!

Here is the project that I created…

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Cajun Craze cardstock and the main card front is a slightly smaller layer of Sahara Sand cardstock. I have stamped images from the Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around Stamp Set onto the card front in Pretty Peacock and Cajun Craze ink. I have also used Stampin’ Write Markers in those two colours to create the ‘splatter’ effect.

To incorporate the Balmy Blue I cut out a piece of 6×6″ DSP using the Stitched Labels Dies. This is adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On top of this I added a length of Pretty Peacock Scalloped Linen Ribbon which I adhered using Tear & Tape.

The sentiment is stamped in Cajun Craze ink onto Sahara Sand cardstock and cut out using the coordinating Stitched Labels Dies. This is adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I really enjoy taking part in these creative challenges. If you struggle for inspiration that can provide a wonderful kick-start so why not join in?
