Beautiful Ride using Stampin’ Up! products

Something a little different today.  It seems that lots of Amy’s friends are passing their tests at the moment and with Amy taking her test in 4 weeks I thought I had better get a card ready to celebrate passing your driving test.

Beautiful Ride Driving Test using Stampin Up!

I created the background by stamping the tree and the road using the Sheltering Tree stamp set and then added clouds using a punch out from the tree builder punch and sponged with Soft Sky Ink.  I stamped the car image from the Beautiful Ride stamp set onto patterned paper and cut it out.  The wheels were cut out separately onto white cardstock and stuck to the wheel arches.

I used the word window punch to create a channel across the base of the card and using dimensionals I cut a strip of cardstock which fit between the dimensionals and would slide in and out so that when you pulled the bakers twine the car moved across the card!

And guess what I made 6 of these for swaps for our team event last weekend….

I stamped the xoxo on the blue which is revealed when you pull the slider open and added congratulations to the white slider.

Birthday card made using Balloon Celebration & Number of Years from Stampin’ Up!

I am sharing a card from last months technique class today using the Balloon Celebration stamp set and the Number of Years stamp set.  I am getting ahead as this is a card for my son in July when he turns 20 which is why I have used tones of blue and green.

I just love the speckled stamp in the Balloon Celebration stamp set as it adds shading to the balloons and adds detail and definition. Love the inside too!

I cannot stop using the Number of Years stamp set and matching framelits.  I have never owned a stamp set or dies which fit a card perfectly when celebrating a milestone birthday, until now that is!

#GDP022 using Number of Years from Stampin’ Up!

I have a 50th Birthday card to share with you today using the Number of Years Stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

It is the weekly Global Design Project Challenge and this weeks challenge is a sketch.  I attended a 50th Birthday party last weekend and decided to make the card for my cousin using the sketch.  As it was for a man, I had to stop myself adding flowers and butterflies (that is really hard for me to do that) and this is the result!

Number of Years 50th Birthday Card

I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest to create the watercolour background and just did it to be honest.  I did not have time to experiment, I just sprayed the watercolour paper with lots of water and then dropped some drops of ink refill onto the watercolour paper and sprayed again, whilst dabbing with tissue to remove excess water and this is how it turned out!

I added the silver stars and some silver thread…

The diagonal edges were created by adding strips of washi tape.

Let’s hope my cousin likes it :)

So why don’t you pop on over to the Global Design Project and make your own card using this sketch, we would love you to join us this week.
