THE GANG’S ALL MEER WELCOME!

Have you loved the cute The Gang’s All Meer set?? I have shared a few cards with it.  These cards I am sharing with you today I made to welcome some new team members during Sale-A-Bration.  They are simple – but sweet.

The meerkats are coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  The patterned paper is from the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.  The “welcome” is cut from using the Well Written Dies.

There is still time get those extra bonuses when you join Stampin’ Up! during Sale-A-Bration – but only one more week!

I would love to welcome you to my JEN’s INK team – and to send you a little meerkat welcome.

Have a great day,

MEERKAT HELLO CARD!

Do you like The Gang’s All Meer Set?  It’s a cute one.  Today I have a card for you with this set teamed up with paper that you probably wouldn’t associate with the Meerkats.  I have used the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.

The white card was cut with the Stitched Nested Labels Die. After stamping the cute meerkats they were coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  The paper was adhered to an Old Olive Card base.  Before adhering the stamped piece a little strip of the Real Red Double Stitched Satin Ribbon was added behind.  The sentiment from Itty Bitty Sentiments was stamped on red card and cut with the smallest die in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  

I think this may just work with the poppies, do you??

It’s only another month left for Sale-A-Bration for you to grab these little meerkat dudes.  The Gang’s All Meer set is free with orders over $90.  Be quick to grab them. 

You can order online in my store now ->HERE and choose this or any of the other qualifying Sale-A-Bration items.

Have a great week,

Jenny

MEERKAT TENT CARD!

I had a special request from a friend for a Housewarming card and the people LOVE Meerkats.  They have received it now so I can share this with you.

I wanted something a little different but I don’t have any “housewarming” type greetings.  I thought the Well Written Dies would work ok.

I made a Tent Card with The Gang’s All Meer stamp set from Sale-A-Bration.  Now I realise that this is a little tropical for the meerkats BUT I just thought it worked ok and kinda cute.  So just roll with it for me. 🙂

This is the front on view.

Side on View.

I have made a few versions of the tent card over the years but I have the tutorial again for the Tent card below.

The meerkats were stamped on Whisper White card and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  I fussy cut them out. TIP: Just leave a little white border when you fussy cut.  It’s softer on they eyes.

When I cut and scored the Old Olive card I adhered a piece of the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper on the front panel and diecut it with the Scallop Circle from the Layering CIrcles Dies. This cut out piece was then adhered inside the card.

The Palm tree was stamped from the Timeless Tropical Stamp set.  I shared this tip in a recent video.  But to create the different colours on the palm tree you could colour it with your Markers But I stamped 2 trees, one in Old Olive and one in Early Espresso.  Then I cut off the palm leaves of the Old Olive one and adhered it straight on top of the Early Espresso one.

The welcome was diecut from the Well Written Dies and adhered on to the front with the cute standing Meerkat.  Of course finished with a Tropical Oasis Trinkets.

TENT CARD TUTORIAL

1. Cut your base card to measure 10.5cm x 29.5cm.    (4 1/4″ x 11 5/8″)

2. Score on the long side at 2.5cm, 5cm, 7.5cm, 18.5cm. (1″, 2″, 3″, 7 1/4″).  Fold on the score lines.

3. Cut your window from the front using the die of your choice.

4. Add adhesive onto the small tab and adhere to the inside of your folded card at the back. (Just fold up the card first to work out the best place for your adhesive).  I had the tab to attach to the back of the card so you can’t see it inside the front).

5. If you wish to add a piece of card inside for stamping as an alternative, cut a piece of Whisper White 11cm x 10.5cm. (4 1/4″ x 4  5/16″).  I used a piece of white card this size for on the back of the Tent Card for writing your message on too.

Have fun creating it,

Jenny

MEERKAT LOVE CARD!

So it’s Valentine’s Day on Friday.  We don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day that much in Australia.  Maybe a card or a chocolate treat for our “significant other”. I don’t even make a card. (am I bad??) 🙂

I couldn’t resist this cute little card though.  This is created by Stampin’ Up! artists.  It seems the cute The Gang’s All Meer set has even made it to Valentine’s greetings.  You can’t resist their cute little faces can you.

Lots of hearts are added with this cute meerkat using the Heart Doilies, From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Heart Punches.  The “love” is from the Well Written Dies.

The Gang’s All Meer Set is a Free choice for Sale-A-Bration with your orders over $90.  Available now in my store -> HERE Ordering now you won’t receive it by Valentine’s Day but it’s a cute set for any occasion.

This card wouldn’t take long to put together if you still need a Valentine’s card in a hurry.

Just remember that even if you don’t receive a Valentine’s card or chocolates.  You are loved. ❤

Have a happy day,

Jenny
