Sweet Cupcake

I just love this cupcake! I’m a sucker for a 2-step stamp set that this one even has coordinating dies (that come bundled together for 10% off!) I made this card last week with the ladies that came to my Catalogue Launch Party, we had so much fun stamping and adding Wink of Stella to this 0 Calorie treat!

Sweet Cupcake From Stampin' Up! UK

The cupcake is stamped in two parts; the cake base and then the icing. The cake base is stamped in Sahara Sand and Tip Top Taupe, while we used Perfect Plum (stamped off once), Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry to create the icing.

Once we had the cupcake stamped, we die cut the pieces using the coordinating dies and added them to the card over the loops of Copper Metallic Thread with a few dimensionals.

Happiest of Birthday to you….

Stampin' Up! UK Birthday Blooms Card Class Watercolour

Over the next couple of weeks I will be sharing some of the cards I designed for my March Card Class. Registration is now open for my April Card Class – just drop me an email for more info!

Stampin' Up! UK Birthday Blooms Card Class Watercolour

I loved making this card. You all know how many times I have watercoloured this flower from Birthday Blooms, but this was the first time I coloured it in blue, so soft and pretty. I took inspiration for this colour palette directly from the Designer Series Paper, where the flowers are Pool Party and Mint Macaron. I’m a sucker for colour, one of the many reasons I love Stampin’ Up!®. All the colours are gorgeous and work so well together, even when you might look at them and think ‘hmmm, maybe not’. So, here I’ve used Mint Macaron and Pool Party for the flower, Mint Macaron and Mossy Meadow the the leaves (it doesn’t look so odd in person!), with So Saffron for the centres and Blushing Bride for the halo around the image. I did colour some of the leaves with a light shade of Tip Top Taupe but its hard to see it in this photo

Stampin' Up! UK Birthday Blooms Card Class

The card is finished with a strip of the Desigher Series Paper, a bow of Pool Party Glitter ribbon and one of the cute bow paper clips!

English Garden Birthday

Stampin' Up! UK Crazy About You birthday card

I’m sure many of you know that I make birthday cards for a nursing home, many care home residents don’t have anyone to send them a card except the home itself, and then its the cheapest card they can find. They smiles from the residents when they open a birthday card, a special, hand made birthday card – its wonderful.

So, the activities coordinator of this home approached me last month and asked for a batch of cards, so this is what I made ….

Stampin' Up! UK English Garden Birthday card

I have to say here, this is totally not my card design, and takes some serious inspiration from THIS CARD that I found on Pinterest.

 

Stampin' Up! UK Crazy About You birthday card

I’m loving this Designer Series Paper, English Garden from this years Annual catalogue, its just so damn pretty! and features some gorgeous colours, and I’m STILL trying to use up my stack of Designer Series Paper and these cards a a great way of using up loads of paper, as each card uses 1/6th of a piece of paper.

The Happy is taken from the Crazy About You stamp and die bundle, another favourite pick from this Annual catalogue!

Stampin Up! Uk Crazy About You English Garden

I made 6 of these cards, 2 in each colour and they were super simple and quick to put together, and the ladies absolutely LOVED them!

Are you interested in making some birthday cards for those older people living in our care homes (UK only) drop me a message and see how you can help me out with my latest project!

Watercolour Birthday

Stampin' Up! UK Garden in Bloom

As I’m sure you are aware, I love playing with watercolour, and this week has been no different. I’ve actually watercoloured so many cards this week that I’m having to hold onto them or you guys are going to get really sick of seeing watercolour cards!

Stampin' Up! UK Garden in Bloom

I’ve been working really hard over the past week to regain my crafty mojo. Does this happen to anyone else? where you are suddenly just not creative. at. all?! Where do you turn, I have to admit Pinterest it my fall back. I can spend hours (if I let myself) scrolling down pages and pages of card designs. I actually can’t remember what inspired this card, other than something similar on Pinterest (which I forgot to Pin and so cannot find!)

Stampin' Up! UK Watercolour with stamping

The flowers are taken from Garden in Bloom, stamped and heat embossed onto Watercolour Paper. The watercolour here is super simple, I grabbed two small paint brushes and a dish of water. One of the brushes is water only, and I use this to ‘paint’ the water onto the image. Then using the other brush to drop the ink into the water, magic happens as it dries I promise. The colours here are Pacific Point, Mossy Meadow and Crushed Curry.

I wanted a birthday card, and although Garden in Bloom is lovely, it doesn’t come with a birthday sentiment, so I reached back into my stamp collection and found this sentiment from Birthday Blossoms.

So pretty

Birthday Blossoms

Stampin' Up! UK birthday blossoms

I am in love with this stamp set! I know there are a few videos and posts coming with this one – but that’s because I love it, and I only use what I love!

Stampin' Up! UK birthday blossoms

This card uses that lovely Ink Smooshing technique that I used a few weeks ago  (on this card!) I am planning a technique video on this one because I just love it! Its so super simple.

First stamp the sentiment in Versamark onto Watercolour Paper, and heat emboss with clear or white Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Grab your largest clear block (or tile, glass counter top etc.) and press your ink pad onto it! Spritz with water. Using a piece of Window Sheet, or the acetate panels that come with your photopolymer stamps, pick up the ink and water mixture and apply to your Watercolour Paper. Repeat until you have the effect desired. Here I picked up the ink and water mixture several times to get this dark colour.

stampin' Up! Uk delightful Dijon birthday blossoms

When you mix your ink and water, you are diluting the colour, so the final result will be lighter, so the more you add, the darker the final result.

You can see the difference in colour tone between the ink smooshing and the stamped flowers – its all the same ink pad!

Male Birthday Card

Stampin' Up! UK Male cards

I know I’m not the only one who’s heart sinks when it comes to Male Birthday cards. They are tricky, particularly when – like me – you’re drawn to flowers and pink!

So, last month it was James’ oldest brothers Birthday. I try really hard not to make themey cards – John likes running, but that doesn’t mean he must have a running themed birthday card, does it?!

Stampin' Up! UK Male cards

This is where Stampin’ Up! outdo themselves, Guy Greetings. What a fantastic guy themed stamp set! I’ve paired it here with Gorgeous Grunge for a really cool grungy look.

Stampin' Up! UK Guy Greetings Male Birthday

I actually got a ‘ooh, that’s cool!’ for this card! I know, I was surprised too! Most of my family are totally not bothered by a handmade anything, none of them understand the effort and thought, and very few actually appreciate what I have done – This does not stop me!

So, the card – a Cucumber Crush card base, layered with a piece of Typeset Designer Series paper and a matt of Very Vanilla – stamped with Gorgeous Grunge in Cucumber Crush and Sahara Sand. Cool, huh?

Birthdays are like hairballs….

I made this card with a special friend in mind, actually I bought the stamp set with her in mind! I know I’ll get plenty of use out of it, actually, I have already used another one of the stamps for a Thank you card.

Stampin' Up! Giggle Greetings

I need to work out the white balance on my camera when trying to photograph Watermelon Wonder, for some reason it turned everything else pink! However, you get the picture!

I love this stamp set, its only a set of four stamps, but they are such cute images and great sentiments, I couldn’t help myself, and I’m so glad it’s still in the Annual Catalogue. Have you got your copy of the latest Annual Catalogue yet by the way? If not (and you’re in the UK) I’m still sending them out, so just leave your details HERE!

I stamped in Stazon Black ink onto shimmery White Card Stock, and then remembered I wanted to heat emboss this ready for water-colouring, so I pulled out my Stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure correct alignment and stamped over it again in Versamark, and heat embossed in Clear Stampin’ Emboss powder. I added water to the cat, and dropped Tip Top Taupe into the water with a paintbrush. I did a little bit of blending, but really not very much.

The layers are matted off set towards the top, something I think just makes this card just a little different, cute huh!

Collage stamping

One of my favourite stamp sets from the current Spring/Summer catalogue is Butterfly Basics. I have created a whole heap of cards with this set, and I’m sure I have plenty more cards with this set left to create (yes, it’s in the new Annual Catalogue too! Yay!)

Stampin' Up! UK butterfly basics collage

I have really enjoyed the pieces of this stamp set, both individually and collaged together  – like the card here. Almost all the stamps from the set are stamped on this 5 x 5″ square card in Sahara Sand. The only different colour used is Early Espresso for the Happy Birthday.

The card is finished with a beautiful butterfly die cut from Early Espresso from the Butterflies Thinlits dies. I usually bend the wings of these butterflies to create some dimension, however, this time I decided to use my bone folder to create a curved wing. To create this look run the wings of the butterfly around the bone folder as if you were curling ribbon. I love the effect this gives.

Big News…. It’s Your Birthday!

Big News being the name of the stamp set I’ve used here.

Stampin' Up! UK Big News Birthday card

I recently managed to order a second ink pad in this colour; Tempting Turquoise – very unlike me as I almost always consult my marked catalogue before ordering, in fact it didn’t even register as a colour I already owned until I tired to put it away! I keep all my inks in a Colour Caddy, in alphabetical order by colour family, so it was really easy to spot that I had managed to duplicate! Oops!

Anyway, the card. I just love the Big News stamp set, it has a great collection of useful sentiments for birthdays, weddings, and just being awesome! And so the ‘its your birthday’ is stamped in Tempting Turquoise, while the candles are in Pacific Point, coloured with Soft Sky, Pumpkin Pie and Rose Red Stampin’ Write Markers

A great, simple, birthday card. Perfect for those awkward men!
