PARTY PANDA POCKET CARD!

I am going to miss these Party Pandas.  Seriously, aren’t they so cute??  I had to use them again for one last blast.  I saw THIS POCKET CARD by Barbstamps the other week and thought the Pandas would be great for it.

Here is my version.

MEASUREMENTS FOR POCKET CARD

If you head to Barb’s link at the top you can see the video with the instructions to make the card.  Below is a general idea.

Card Base:    21cm x 14.8cm     (8 1/2″x 5 1/2″)    Score at 3.5 cm and 10.5cm.          (Score at 1 1/2″ and 4 1/4″)

Fold in at the half way score line and fold back on the small scored line.  Staple or adhere the front of the card to the back.  Underneath the flap so you don’t see the staples.

Designer Series Paper: Top piece – 14.4cm x 3.1cm     (approximately 5 1/4″x 1 1/4″)        Bottom piece:  14.4cm 3.6cm   (aprroximatly 5 1/4″ x 1 1/2″)

Cut the stamped piece for the image according to the size of your image.  This piece for the Panda was card mat: 6.9cm x 5.5cm    Whisper White 6.5cm x 5.1cm.

Pocket Insert: 13.2cm x 10cm   (5 1/8″x4″)   Whisper White 12.8cm x 9.6cm   (5″x 3 3/4″)

On the Panda stamped piece I coloured a Rhinestone with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends.

The Designer Series Paper is from the Bubbles and Fizz pack that is a Free choice with Sale-A-Bration.

Hope you like it,

SOME MORE SWIRLY BIRDS!!

I have some more Swirly Bird cards to show you today.  This is such a fun set. Have I told you that before 😉

Here they are. These first 2 cards we made at our Swirly Bird class along with others I had already shared. These cards were inspired by ones I had seen on my internet travels.

On this first one, the sentiment is from ‘Butterfly Basics’ and the clouds are from ‘Sprinkles of Life’.  The base card is Dapper Denim with the kite stamped in Dapper Denim and Real Red.

This next one, the card base is Chocolate Chip.  This is a colour I haven’t used in AGES!!! I even dragged out the inkpad! This made a cute image of mummy bird and her eggs.  The sentiment is from ‘Thoughtful Banners’. The background spots are stamped in Soft Sky. This card is fairly simple looking but it did take some time to cut and to put together.

What about a Christmas Swirly card?  Yes I made a Christmas card!  I couldn’t help it.  I wanted to show the versatility of this set at my class. This card was CASED from Beth on a Facebook group I am on.  I just made it into traditional Christmas colours.  I added some dazzle with the Dazzling Diamonds in the centres of each bauble too.  The sentiment for this is from ‘Wondrous Wreath’.

So many ideas for this set.  What have you come up with?? I would love to see them.  Send me a photo and I will share them here on my blog.

Thanks for stopping by.  Today it is FREEZING!!! Is it Summer soon???

Have a great day wherever you are,

SWIRLY BIRD PINWHEELS!

I have been having fun making samples with the Swirly Bird stamps and Swirly Scribbles Thinlits ready for my Swirly Bird Class tomorrow.  I just finished this card today and had to show you now.  I really liked how it turned out. I saw an idea for a type of pinwheel using it somewhere, I think on a group I am on??  So I thought I would have a play and see what I could come up with.  I wasn’t sure how it would work at first.  Here is the end result.

Pinwheel Swirly Bird

What do you think?  Pretty funky?

It’s a simple card in itself.  The colours for the pinwheels are from the top right: Emerald Envy and Wild Wasabi; Dapper Denim and Tempting Turquoise; Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo and Peekaboo Peach and Tangerine Tango. I only realised as I got to the last one that I was using the new Incolors. 🙂  The “spots” from the stamp set and stamped in Daffodil Delight.  The sentiment is from ‘Guy Greetings’.  I went through all my stamp sets and thought this font really suited.

The Rhinestones were coloured with a Black Sharpie to add to the centres.  The white card was then adhered to a Basic Black mat and the base card is Tangerine Tango.

These pinwheels were really fun to do and being a clear set you can see through the block to line up each stamp.  I stamped the shape running across lengthways first and then inked the stamp again and flipped it to run across the other direction.  Then inked the other colour and stamped  to line up the long edge with the shorter edge already stamped if that makes sense?? I think I will have to try some more cards with these pinwheels!

Go and make some funky pinwheels for yourself.  Of course, you need the Swirly Bird stamp set to do this.  If you haven’t already got it and the Swirly Scribbles  Thinlits you better buy it.  This is such a fun and versatile set.  Get it as a Bundle and save 10%.

‘HEY VALENTINE FISHIES’

The excitement is building for the new catalogue to start.  Not long now folks!  But we still have an Occasions Catalogue AND the current catalogue to see and I still have some projects that I haven’t shown you yet.  So let me show you these cute little fishy cards.

These are from the set ‘Hey Valentine’.  I stamped these some time ago and coloured them with the Blendabilities.  Yes that’s how long they have been sitting unfinished on my desk.  I wasn’t sure how to put them together.  Recently I pulled them out again and made the cards.

P1160430

This card was loosely based on the Clean and Simple sketch #283.  You can see that here.   The sentiment is from ‘From the Herd’ and the banners are from ‘Perfect Pennants.

P1160434

On this card I used ‘Gorgeous Grunge’  for the dots in the background.

This set is not just for your Valentine’s cards.  Otherwise you would only use this set once a year, but where is the value in that!!! These images are just so cute for any time of the year for the young kiddies.  I cut the greetings off most of the stamps in the set to make them more versatile or you could mask the greeting if you didn’t want to cut them off.

You can see another card I made with this set Here.

I have to show you this cute set.

Now you only have a couple of weeks to buy this set (June 2nd) so don’t delay.  It is $42.95 Wood or $30.95 Clear mount.  You can message me to order OR order Online HERE.

I am waiting (im)patiently for my preorder to arrive.  Hopefully today, fingers crossed.  Hope you have a Happy Day 🙂

HAPPY (VALENTINE’S) BIRTHDAY!!!

It’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow. You probably realised that!! We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day that much in Australia.  Maybe a small treat for a special someone.  So I don’t normally buy Valentine’s stamp sets.  When I saw this set in the Occasions Catalogue though it was just the cutest AND doesn’t have to be used for Valentine’s Day.  These cute images are great for the young ones in your life.  What little boy or girl doesn’t like pretending to be a pirate!  I have a few Great nephews that I am sure this will be used for.  On the stamp set I cut the sentiments off a few of the stamps to make them more versatile.   On to the card.

P1150911

I coloured the little pirate with the Blendabilities.  The sentiment is from ‘Amazing Birthday’.  I stamped it in black on the white card.  Then I stamped again in Real Red and Crushed Curry on scrap white and cut each of the “Happy” words out and adhered them straight over the top of the black ones. The Real Red base card was stamped with the blotches from ‘Gorgeous Grunge’.  I finished the card off with some Black Taffeta ribbon and some gold sequins.

So, me hearties have a Happy Valentine’s Day however you spend it.

FIRST BIRTHDAY TEDDY BEAR!

I can’t believe I forgot to show you this card.  I made this a few weeks ago for one of my Great Niece’s 1st Birthday.  I was a little stumped at first what to do as I had nothing really suitable.  I did consider the ‘Something for Baby’ set but then I thought PUNCH ART!! It has been ages since I did something like that.  This little bear took a little while to work out.  I did have a Punch Art Bear similar I had made a while ago but I had to reconfigure him.  Once he was done the card came together fairly quickly. Do you think he is cute???

P1140321

 

I used a number of oval and circle punches to create his body and sponged all the pieces. The greeting is from ‘Chalk Talk’ and finished with some Melon Mambo Candy Dots. I embossed some Melon Mambo card with the ‘Alphabet Press’ Embossing Folder and layered this piece on to a piece of Whisper White (after tying around some Whisper White Baker’s Twine). Then this was all adhered on to a Melon Mambo Card base.

I hope you like my cute little friend.

I hope you have wonderful weekend wherever you may be. Sending some Bear Hugs your way.

BLAST OFF FOR A 1 YEAR OLD!

I made this card a few weeks ago now just before Convention but with the excitement of Convention and the new Catalogue I hadn’t got around to showing you this yet.  This card was made for one of my Great Nephew’s 1st Birthday.  This is using ‘Blast Off’ which is on the retiring list.  It is such a cute set.  Here is the card.

P1120074

It was quite fun stamping and cutting these little characters out.  For the grey “moon” I cut 2 circles from Smokey Slate cardstock using the Circle Framelits and with one I punched out holes using the Crop-A-Dile and a small circle punch.  I then adhered them together and sponged the edge all around and over it randomly.  I used ‘Gorgeous Grunge’ to create little splodges in Daffodil Delight. For the spaceman I taped some White Baker’s Twine to the back of him and to the back of the moon to let him “float” around.  A cute little card for a cute one year old.

Make sure you grab this set before it leaves us in 2 weeks.  Then it is gone!!  You can check this cute set out below.

In the meantime, Happy Stamping 🙂
