Banner Banter Baby card using Stampin’ Up!

I had some wonderful news recently that a friend had twins and I wanted to make two extra special baby cards and I had a card to make using the sketch from Stamping&Blogging so I thought I would use the sketch to get started.

I had these treat bags left over from a promotion earlier in the year and teamed them with the flower patch stamp set and matching framelits and look how pretty they turned out!

So simple to make and filled with treats incase they need a sugar fix on the day!

Here’s hoping for a great day! Hope you have a wonderful weekend too!

Tap Tap Tap men’s card using a sketch & Stampin Up products

I made a card for a male friend in the US.  I find it quite hard to make mens card but with this stamp set it was a breeze!
taptaptap from stampin upI went to town with this card, I stamped the draw the line stamp (the notebook lines) in the background by masking off the typewriter.  I added a spiral border punch to make it look like notepaper and coloured in the typewriter with an aqua painter and added some crystal effects on the typewriter keys.  I used the note stamp to create the flag as shown in the sketch below and then the ticket duo builder punch to make a dumpy ticket and added the ‘hi’ sentiment.  The little mini stapler from stampin up added a utilitarian feel to the card but it was all looking rather black and grey so the arrows from the wooden elements added some dimension and a different colour focus too!

Here is the sketch which inspired me….

New Home card using Holiday Home from Stampin Up!

I have SO many cards to send at the moment and I needed a new home card and the new Holiday Home set in the new seasonal was just perfect as it has three styles of house to use!
newhome card made using Holiday Home from Stampin Up
I stamped the houses in Smoky Slate Ink all along the bottom of the card and then stamped and coloured one of the houses.  I used the matching homemade holiday framelits to cut out the house and mounted it on dimensionals.  I used an aqua painter and the regular dye inks to colour in the house.  The little red heart punch out is from the owl punch.

The stamp set is pretty versatile and has so many images and can be used for a multitude of occasions.

So wishing you all a great day whatever you choose to do!
