Bike Ride Birthday from Stampin’ Up!

I have made a card for the colour challenge for the Global Design Project using the Bike Ride stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  It is our daughter Amy’s 19th Birthday tomorrow so I made an extra special card with a unique detail personal to our family. I hope it makes you smile.

Bike Ride from Stampin Up

I stamped and die cut the bike frame, wheels etc and added a little basket of flowers on the back of the bike.  Coming very soon in the new seasonal catalogue is this cute little Dachshund so I stamped and die cut him to make him just up at the bike which is exactly what our little Dachshund Pip would do.  If she can get a carry or a lift she’d much rather that than walk!

Here are the colours this this weeks colour challenge with the Global Design Project challenge.

It is a slider card and I added a little greeting on the inside too so there is a little surprise when she pulls it open.

If you have not made a slider card before, I urge you to give them a try as they really add a WOW to a card.

Anniversary Card made using Message in a Bottle

Today I have an anniversary/love theme card for this weeks theme challenge over at the Global Design Project.

Anniversary card made using Stampin Up items

 

I wanted to go non-traditional and steer clear of hearts, pink and red and try something new.  I adore the Message in a Bottle stamp set and love its quirky creatures and fun quotes and it’s a great price too!

The sails were stamped and fussy cut to add dimension and I did the same to the waves too.   A perfect card my my lovely hubby and I was going to say not a heart in sight but then I realised I did add a cheeky little heart.

The embossed background on the card front was perfect to signify waves with the boat theme.  The embossing folder is called Seaside and available from my shop along with all the other products used to make this card.

Why not join our theme challenge this week over at the Global Design Project and make a special card for the sweetheart in your life just because?

Let’s pop over and see what the other design team members have made using the same Wedding/Anniversary theme and be inspired!

Easter Project for the Creative Hearts Blog Hop

Creative Hearts Blog Hop Spring Jitters

Thank you Caroline and the Creative Hearts for asking me to join you on this fun Spring themed blog hop.  I decided to play along using an Easter theme.  I have been dying to use the Mini Egg Cartons from Stampin Up and they team up perfectly with the Basket Bunch Bundle.  I can see so much potential with this cute Basket Bunch Set and matching Basket Builder Framelits and not only for Easter.

Basket Builder Framelits from Stampin Up

I created the flower basket and filled it with daffodils and flowers.  I added it to a stitched square framelit and backed it with a scallop square from the layering square framelits.Mini Egg Cartons from Stampin Up

I then coloured my mini egg carton with a spray bottle, rubbing alcohol and a good few drops of Mint Macaron Ink.  As I used rubbing alcohol the carton dried pretty quickly.  I then added some chocolate eggs (from M&S which fit perfectly) and wrapped a belly band around the carton using the Neutrals Designer Series paper pack.

Basket Bunch Easter Treat from Stampin Up

I wrapped some striped ribbon in mint macaron around the belly band and adhered the stamped panel over the top.

Some of the enamel dots were perfect flower centres and a little mint macaron sheer linen ribbon and a vellum sentiment finished it off perfectly.

I would recommend you snap these mini egg cartons up quickly as they are sure to be popular.  All the supplies I have used to create this project are available to buy via my stampin up shop.  Simply click any of the images at the bottom of my post to go direct to my shop and place you order 24/7.
