Pootler’s Design Team Balloon Builders Rainbow Birthday Card Week #5

13131041_10153500487306603_7349292774340075556_o

Welcome to the fourth week of June’s projects with the Pootler’s Design Team. As mentioned previously the stamp set for this months challenge is the Balloon Builders Stamp Set.

This week is a busy birthday week for me with some big birthdays happening so I wanted to make a bit of a special birthday card and I love making shaker cards! For this weeks card I got my colour inspiration from the Pop Of Pink Speciality Designer Series Paper, which I have finally broke into. I used a piece of the DSP (measuring 3 7/8 inches x 5 5/8inches) for my card front. For my card base I used some Basic Black A4 Cardstock (cut at 4 1/8 inches x 5 7/8 inches). I then adhered a piece of Melon Mambo A4 Cardstock (4 inches x 5 6/8 inches) with Fast Fuse Adhesive.

I took a piece of Whisper White A4 Cardstock (3 5/8 inches x 5 3/8 inches) and along with my piece of DSP I die cut two squares using the fabulous Layering Squares Framelit Dies. Using some Melon Mambo and Basic Black cardstock and the squares framelits I die cut two frames for my shaker windows, I adhered my DSP to my Whisper White piece and my frames to my windows. On the reverse I adhered some Window Sheet to my shaker windows and applied some of the super new Foam Adhesive Strip. On some more Whisper White I stamped two larger balloon images and two smaller balloon images from the stamp set in Melon Mambo Classic Ink, which I then punched out with the co-ordinating Balloon Bouquet Punch. I also punched out some balloons in Shimmery White Cardstock and some more Melon Mambo and Basic Black.

On my card base I adhered one smaller stamped and punched out balloon to each space where my shaker windows will be. I popped in some sequins from both the Metallics and Brights Sequin Mixes. I then popped on my card front. To the side of each shaker window I adhered a larger balloon punch out with some Tonbow Mono Multi Glue and popped up a larger stamped balloon image with some Stampin Dimensionals. To finish of my card front I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the stamp set in some Versamark Ink on a smallpiece of Melon Mambo cardstock and heat embossed with some White Stampin Emboss Powder.  I cut this in to a flag end and popped it up with some dimensionals on to my card and of course covered everything in Wink of Stella. For the inside I just used a couple of the die cut pieces from my shaker windows and adhered these for a pop of colour.

I am very happy with how this card turned out and is pretty simple to recreate! Don’t forget to pop back next week to see what I come up with next!

Pootler’s Design Team Balloon Builders Birthday Shaker Card Week #4

13131041_10153500487306603_7349292774340075556_o

Pootler’s Design Team Balloon Builders Birthday Celebration Week #3

13131041_10153500487306603_7349292774340075556_o

Welcome to the third week of June’s projects with the Pootler’s Design Team. As mentioned last week we will be using the Balloon Builders Stamp Set.

This weeks card is based on the reason I wanted this stamp set in the first place, “Sweets”, yes sweets!! I have seen a couple of examples of cards using the smaller balloon shapes in the set and they reminded me of jelly beans. So my card this week is a sweetie card, and no not all my cards on based on sweet treats.

I stamped three of the smaller balloon images in my three favourite colours, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise Classic Inks, on to a sheet of A4 Whisper White Cardstock. Creating a sheet of my own DSP, once dry I used my Clear Wink of Stella Brush Pen to add a bit of sparkle to my sweeties. I then trimmed this down to card fronts (3 7/8 inches x 5 5/8 inches) and a adhered them to a card base of Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise A4 Cardstock (cut at 4 1/8 inches and scored at 5 7/8 inches).

I took some A4 Vellum Cardstock and stamped a “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set in Versamark Ink and heat embossed this with White Stampin Embossing Powder. I then flipped this over and on the backside I coloured my sentiment in with the co-ordinating Stampin Write Markers. I cut a banner shape at the bottom and then adhered this to my card front using some discreet Glue Dots and Fast Fuse. Finally I added a piece of Whisper White Thick Bakers Twine to finish off my card.

I think you will agree this is a bright, fun and sweet birthday card!? Don’t forget to pop back next week to see what I come up with next!

Pootler’s Design Team Balloon Builders Week #2

13131041_10153500487306603_7349292774340075556_o

Welcome to the second week of June’s projects with the Pootler’s Design Team. As mentioned last week we will be using the Balloon Builders Stamp Set.

I used some Sweet Sugarplum A4 Cardstock for my card base (4 1/8 inches x 5 7/8 inches). I added a piece of the gorgeous New Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack  (3 7/8 inches x 5 5/8 inches) to my card base. Then taking a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock  (3 1/4 inches x 3 1/2 inches) and the smallest little balloon stamp and Sweet Sugarplum Classic Ink and Blushing Bride Classic Ink, I stamped my little cute Macaron’s stacked on top of one another.

I finished my Very Vanilla piece off with some faux stitching in my Sweet Sugarplum Stampin Write Marker and my stamped sentiment again in Sweet Sugarplum Ink which I heat embossed with Clear Stampin Emboss Powder.

I popped this piece up on Stampin’ Dimensionals and to finish off I wrapped some of the beautiful Ruched Ribbon in Sweet Sugarplum.

That’s my project for this week don’t forget to pop back next week to see what I come up with next!

Pootler’s Design Team Balloon Builders Week #1

I am thrilled to tell you that I am taking part in the Pootler’s Design Team Challenge this month! Myself and four of my fellow Pootler’s will be creating a project every Thursday through June using the same stamp set sent to us by none other than the lovely Pootles herself!

20160531_191834_marked

So this month’s stamp set is the Balloon Builders set. To be honest this stamp set had crept past me in the catalogue but after a lovely swap I was given at Onstage Telford and seeing some fun projects on Pinterest it made its way on to my wish list, so I was super excited when I received it from Sam, happy days!!

20160531_191858_marked

For this weeks project and with the launch of our brand new catalogue yesterday I decided to also showcase the gorgeous new In Colours 2016-18 by creating a set of birthday cards stamped in our new colours along with the co-ordinating cardstock and absolutely gorgeous Ruched Ribbon.

20160531_191910_marked

Taking five pieces of Whisper White A4 Cardstock (3 7/8 inches x 5 5/8 inches) I stamped the main larger balloon image in each of the new In Colours across my Whisper White piece, firstly 1st generation stamping and then 2nd generation stamping and so on.

20160531_191919_marked

Then using the Happy Birthday sentiment, which fits snugly in the balloon shape, I stamped the darker balloons using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with White Stampin Embossing Powder on the Emerald Green and Dapper Denim pieces and the others in Silver Stampin Embossing Powder.

20160531_191928_marked

Breaking out my new In Colour 2016-18 Stampin Write Markers I drew on some strings for my balloons. Using some more new goodies I wrapped a piece of Ruched Ribbon around my card front and tied it in a bow (sort of). I then adhered this to my card bases in each of the new In Colours with Stampin Dimensionals.

Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge #10 Stampin’ Up’s Sneak Peek Confetti Celebration Birthday Card

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you. The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

So this is sketch number 10 of our challenge and the sketch comes from the lovely Kathleen Rintoul-Waite at http://www.lilypopcrafts.co.uk

So for today’s sketch….

As mentioned in my last post I don’t make many male themed cards so although this sketch incorporated some floral embellishments I switched things round a little bit….

For my card base I used some A4 Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut at 4 1/8 inches and scored at 5 7/8 inches. I then took some A4 Basic Black cardstock cut to 4 inches x 5 6/8 inches for my first mat and then some A4 Tempting Turqouise cardtock cut at 3 7/8 inches x 5 5/8 inches for my second mat. I adhered these to my card base using Fast Fuse adhesive. Then taking some A4 Shimmery White cardstock cut to 3 5/8 inches x 5 3/8 inches I cut a 1/4 inch diagonally out of my card front and popped this up onto my card base with some Stampin Dimensionals. Using some thin strips cut from matching cardstock I adhered these in between my split in the card front.

I decided to make two cards but used Bermuda Bay A4 Cardstock for my second card.

Taking some more Basic Black, Bermuda Bay and Tempting Turqouise cardstock I stamped my main sentiment and a star sentiment, from the new Confetti Celebration Stamp Set (from the new 2016/17 Annual Catalogue, available from 1st June), in Versamark Ink  and heat embossed with White Stampin Emboss Powder. I punched my main sentiment out with my 2″ Circle Punch and punched out the star sentiment with the co-ordinating Star punch. I punched two further stars out with co-ordinating cardstock. I popped all these up on Stampin Dimensionals.

 

For the inside of my card I adhered a couple of matching strips of cardstock and stamped the “Happy Birthday” sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then coloured this in with matching Temtping Turqouise and Bermuda Bay Stampin Write Markers.

This new stamp set is ideal for generic birthday cards, especially teenager cards, and is also available in a bundle with a brand new punch, soon to be revealed, watch this space!!!

Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge #9 Stampin’ Up’s Flower Shop Birthday Card

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you. The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

So this is sketch number 9 of our challenge and the sketch comes from the lovely Karen McDondald!

So for today’s sketch….

12916815_10154007715904463_2890398223363953566_o

I decided to kill two birds with one stone for this weeks sketch as I needed to make a birthday card for mom, who’s birthday it is today!! Happy Birthday Mom!!!

For my card base I used Watermelon Wonder A4 Cardstock cut at 4 1/8 inches and scored at 5 7/8 inches.

20160422_180918_marked

I then took a piece of the Shimmery White Cardstock, which I am obsessed with for water colouring, cut to 3 7/8 inches x 5 5/8 inches. I stamped in Versamark Ink some of the images from the Flower Shop Stamp Set and heat embossed with White Stampin Emboss Powder. Using Watermelon Wonder Classic Ink I water coloured over my stamped images to create a background piece. I then adhered this to a piece of Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper cut to 4 inches x 5 6/8 inches.

20160422_181001_marked

Taking some A4 Vellum Cardstock I stamped some different flower images from the stamp set in Versamrk Ink and heat embossed. I punched these out with the Pansy Flower Punch, which is available in a bundle saving 15%.

20160422_180929_marked

Taking some more vellum cardstock I stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment from the Number of Years Stamp Set in Versamark and heat embossed again. I cut this in to a banner edged piece ready to attach to my card front.

20160422_180941_marked

Using some of the gorgeous 1″ Watermelon Wonder Dotted Lace trim I wrapped a piece vertically around my card front and then tied a Faux bow using a technique I found on Pinterest and my Candy Dots Brad Bases with some Basic Rhinestone Jewels. I then adhered my card front to my card base using Stampin Dimensionals. My last touch was attaching my vellum sentiment piece with three 1/8″ Mini Brads. With some Mini Glue Dots I adhered my punched out Pansy flowers.

I made a second card of this design. The water colouring came up a little more pigmented and I used the Watermelon Wonder 1″ Stitched Satin Ribbon for my bow.

Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge Hello Birthday Card

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you. The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

It has been a while since we did a Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge, with Christmas etc. but we are back on track now and will be “hopping” regularly on a Saturday and bringing you some amazing products!

So for today’s sketch….

For today’s cards I used the brilliant Hello Stamp Set  from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue which is only available until 15th February so you need to get in quick! I have gone in to more detail about the Sale-a-Bration promotion at the end of this post so don’t forget to stay until the end to see how you can qualify for this stamp set and more gorgeous products.

I used a piece of Whisper White A4 Thick Cardstock cut at 4 1/8 inches and I scored both card bases at 5 7/8 inches.

P1010807_marked

For my “birthday girl” card, I stamped the small party hat image randomly all over my card base in Wisteria Wonder Classic Ink and So Saffron Classic Ink. This is one of my favourite colour combinations! It is quite difficult to get the right amount of pressure with these little stamps so have a practice on some scrap paper first. I found I was either applying too much pressure or not enough but you get the hang of it soon enough.

Then using one of my Circles Framelits Dies and my Bigshot I die cut a circle out of Wisteria Wonder A4 Cardstock for my centre piece.

For my “Birthday Boy” card I used Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink and Watermelon Wonder Classic Ink and Tempting Turquoise A4 Cardstock.

On my circle pieces I stamped the “Hello” sentiment in Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and my heat tool. I popped these on to my card bases with some Stampin Dimensionals.  I finished my circle piece with a couple of the 1/8 inch Mini Brads.

To finish my cards off I stamped my “Birthday Girl” sentiment on to some Whisper White Cardstock in Wisteria Wonder Ink, and my “Birthday Boy” sentiment in Watermelon Wonder Ink. I punched these out with the Washi Label Punch and popped them up with some dimensionals.

I finished off with a few sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment. That’s it for my take on this weeks sketch but I think this stamp set is a must in everyone’s collection so get it quick!!

Stampin’ Up’s Number of Years 21st Birthday Shaker Card

We had a big birthday in the family this weekend, our Nephew turned 21! It is scary, the younger generation have started coming of age, I feel so old! It kicks off a year of big birthdays in our family, we have two 21st’s, three 18th’s and my best friend turns 40! So I will be busy, anyway todays card is the card I designed for our Nephew using the Number of Years Stamp Set and Framelits Bundle, buying the bundle of the dies and the matching stamp set saves you a massive 15%. If you want to see what other stamp sets are on offer as a bundle click HERE!

P1010814_marked

Firstly I wanted to make my main focal piece for the card front, the shaker element. I took a 6×4 Project Life card from the Moments Like These Project Life Card Collection and die cut 21 with the Large Number Framelits Dies and my Bigshot. I adhered a piece of Window Sheet to the back of the card with some Multi Purpose Liquid Glue. I created an area around my numbers using Stampin Dimensionals for my shaker sequins to go in, making sure there were no gaps between the dimensionals for any stray sequins to fall out of. I popped in my sequins and added some dimensionals on the rest of the piece and added a piece of Daffodil Delight A4 Cardstock cut to 6×4 inches to close my piece up.

P1010816_marked

For my card base I cut two pieces of Daffodil Delight A4 cardstock, the first to 5 x 7 1/2 inches and the second to 5 x 7 inches. On the bigger piece I scored a line at the half inch mark and folded along my score line. I then added some Fast Fuse Adhesive, and adhered my first piece to this making a 5 x 7 card base. Taking the number images from the Number of Years Stamp Set I stamped 21 in the matching Daffodil Delight Classic Ink all over my card base. Before adhering my shaker element I adhered a piece of the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack to the back at an angle.

P1010815_marked

To finish my card front off I die cut two more 21’s from some Daffodil Delight cardstock and some Silver Glimmer Paper and adhered these together and onto my card front. Then taking one of the smaller 3×4 Project Life cards I cut out the “Today” sentiment and adhered this to the right of my silver 21.

P1010817_marked

For the inside of my card I again used some tone on tone stamping with Daffodil Delight Classic Ink and the stars image from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp Set, this stamp set is without a doubt the most versatile to have in your collection. I then stamped my sentiment using the Number of Years Stamp Set and some Basic Black Archival Stampin Pad. I popped a few random sequins on the front of my card and we are all done!

I hope this has given you some inspiration and I love using Project Life cards for more than just Project Life so why not try them out!?

Stampin Up’s Framelit Friday Shaker Card

This Friday I wanted to showcase how versatile the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits are.  I don’t as yet do Project Life but bought these Framelits as I love making shaker cards and thought these would be ideal, and they are!

This card was a custom order so it is a combination of products but to make my shaker cards I always turn to my Project Life Framelits.  For this card I used a piece of A4 Blushing Bride Cardstock scored at 5 7/8 inches.  I took a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and cut it to 8 inches x 5 5/58 inches.  I stamped my images randomly over this cardstock and sponged on some Pink Pirouette Classic Ink.  I then took the largest frame from my Framelits and die cut my frame using my BigShot.  From the middle leftover piece I die cut some of the images out and adhered them on to my frame.  On the reverse of this piece I adhered some Window Sheet with some Tonbow Mono Multi Glue.  I then went back to my card front.  I had stamped out some images in Pistachio Pudding, Pink Pirouette and Pool Party Classic Ink which I  die cut and popped up on Stampin Dimensionals to imitate a Pattiserie window.  I die cut my sentiment and adhered this to my card front.  I took some sequins and was pretty generous with these and spread them around my images.  I went back to my frame and adhered some 3D foam tape and popped this on my card base.

For the inside I used some Whisper White cardstock measuring some spare DSP and extra images and adhered all these along with my stamped sentiment in Pool Party Classic Ink.

So these Framelits make shaker cards super easy and so much fun!!

Thanks for shaking by, Louise xx
