Wishing you the best birthday ever

I have a card I made during what seemed like a crafting marathon yesterday:

I used the colours from CAS Colours and Sketches, and the stamp set from Concord and 9th called ‘Kindness Blooms‘. This stamp set is two turnabouts in one, which is actually quite easy to get your head around.

The first smaller flowers were stamped and turned twice, then I took the acetate with the flowers to see where they would go – and then stamped them and then the leaves. If it sounds a little confusing – here is a link to the YouTube video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUn2FXEEL-I , and another https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZ5WbLyvkfY

I also added some extra small flowers to fill the gaps, and even took the second leaf layer – the sprig looking thingy – and stamped that in some spaces too.

The sentiment is from Gina K , as is the circular stamp stamped using Rich Razzleberry – which fit just absolutely perfectly within a Stampin’ Up stitched circle die.

I stamped some extra leaf clusters, and shoved them under the circle. Well – I placed them gently, actually, but I like the word ‘shove’ today!

Getting Ready For Christmas

Hi there. After quite a few days without posting, I have a couple of cards for you today. There is a new challenge starting at Cardz 4 Galz and this time the theme is ‘Get Ready For Christmas’. I am sure a lot of you are making lots of Christmas cards at the moment, and it would be great if you were to join us in our challenge.

Here is my card:

After I had stamped and die cut the Christmas tree, I stamped and die cut the poinsettias and leaves and arranged them all as you see. I wanted to add some ‘girlie’ pearls to the tree, and found some pink and green gems in my stash – goodness knows where they came from, or who made them, but I added quite a few. They are so tiny I thought I could get away with it……

The sentiment is from the same stamp set, and I think the font is simple enough against the trees and flowers on the bottom of the card.

As I stamped and cut two trees, I went ahead and made another card with a completely different layout:

This time just the tree, but with a larger sentiment – same stamp set – stamped and heat embossed using a green Wow! sparkly embossing powder.

The two cards together:

I hope to see you in our gallery, and I look forward to seeing what you create.
