Quick Little Note Cards using Watercolor WIngs by Stampin' Up!

It's been a busy time in my house with the summer holidays and I wanted something super quick and colourful for a special friend so I reached for a great set called Watercolor Wings by Stampin' Up!






I first made a little box so I had something to put the note cards in by cutting a piece of Watermelon Wonder 6" x 6" and scoring at 1" on the Simple Scored Scoring Plate all the way round.  I then cut Very Vanilla 6" x 6" and scored slightly under 1" all the way round. When you have scored and burnished both pieces you cut down the little tabs at the 4 corners and fold them in using snail tape and secure them in place to make the box.

The butterflies on the top of the box were done with Whisper White as the base and stamped with Watermelon Wonder ink then cut out with the Butterflies Thinlits.  The Little cards are 6" x 3" in Whisper White and are scored and folded in half. The sentiments on the box and the little cards are in the Watercolor Wings set and are so cute. I stamped the butterfly on the cards in Watercolor Wonder and Calypso Coral with Chocolate Chip for the body.

I hope you like them I think they look cute and I'm sure my friend will love them.

Perfect Male Card with Perfect Pennants from Stampin' Up!

I have so many male birthday's at the moment it was a great excuse to use Perfect Pennants from Stampin' Up!  It's one of my favourite stamp sets for a male birthday card as it has the lovely "Make a Wish" sentiment in it which I love and to me it's such a lovely thing to do on a birthday!





As it was a male card I went for dark strong colours, Basic Black and Bermuda Bay fitted the bill perfectly so I decided to use them.  The great thing about Stampin' Up! is that everything co-ordinates so beautifully and that includes there ribbons so to add that little something extra and to finish it off I used Stripped Grosgrain Ribbon in Bermuda Bay. I'm very happy with the finished card and I'm sure the young man it's going to is going to love it to.

I have listed all the supplies used below if you would like to make this card.

Super Speedy Male Card Using Amazing Birthday from Stampin' Up!

I wanted to make a super quick card for a young man who's birthday was yesterday so Amazing Birthday from Stampin' Up! fitted the bill. Such a lovely stamp set as it can be used for either male or female cards.





As you can see I used Basic Black and Tip Top Taupe as the base colours with a little strip of Go Wild Designer Series Paper. The Amazing Birthday stamp set is so cute as you can cut up the Hello sentiment to make little banners. You may be wondering what the background stamp is well it's a little stamp from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp set.

I made the card 6 x 6 I like this size and use it quite a lot when I'm crafting with large sentiment stamps as it gives me plenty of room to play.

I really like the way the card turned out and I hope you like it to.

Happy Birthday using Stampin' Up! Celebrate Today

I have quite a few birthdays coming up so I decided to use Celebrate Today by Stampin' Up! and get started. I love the colour combination of Smoky Slate and Pink Pirouette so pretty.



I used the Pink Pirouette as the base and the Smoky Slate as the top layer for the card. I embossed the Smoky Slate card stock with the lovely Lucky Stars Embossing Folder on my big shot, which gives a lovely effect. I then stamped the Happy balloon sentiment from the stamp set on to the Pink Pirouette using VersaMark and Silver Emboss Powder and set it with my heat tool.  I also embossed the birthday sentiment on to Whisper White card stock with silver embossing powder and cut that out with the Word Window Punch. I cut the balloon and the flags I stamped with Pink Pirouette, out with the matching Balloon Framelits which co-ordinates perfectly with the Celebrate Today Stamp Set. The basket was embossed with the Silver Embossing powder and cut out by hand. I cut out the ribbon element under the balloon using the framelits in Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper. Lastly I cut out some little stars with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack in Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper and popped it all together.  I hope you like it.

Thank You Cards using Cottage Greetings by Stampin' Up!

I needed to make some quick thank you cards and I love the "thanks" sentiment from the Stampin' Up! set Cottage Greetings so i reached for that and decided to make a few in the new lovely In Color from Stampin' Up!   


I first cut the whisper white card stock into 20cm x 10cm scored down the middle to make 10cm x 10cm squares. I made a mat with the In Color card stock of 9.5cm x 9.5 cm and then put whisper white on top of 9cm x 9cm. I used the lovely flower from the Garden in Bloom stamp set and stamped in each In Color to co-ordinate with the card stock and used crumb cake to stamp in the shaded area of each flower. I used the super cute In Color Blossom Accents in the centre of each flower to co-ordination, and finished the card off with the lovely Thanks sentiment from the Cottage Greetings stamp set. Super quick. I hope you like them and, I have added the supply list here.
