Fun in the Sun! Using Day At The Beach by Stampin' Up!

Hello there from a hot and sunny Southampton!
It's super hot here and right now we are all wishing we had air con at home and not just in the car ;-)
 So, I made this card recently with the (sadly, now retired) Day At The Beach stamp set but I think it's just perfect for this weather, take a look...
 I stamped each image then, using a blender pen and the same ink pad, added a little shading
 Before colouring over each image with my clear Wink of Stella pen and adding coordinating sequins from my stash ;-)
 Ah, to be by the pool while blogging... #lifegoals
 Well, that's all for today, I'll be back tomorrow with another (final) Day At The Beach card.
I'm off to my craft room for a couple of hours, see you soon :-)

21st Birthday Rainbow Watercoloured Card using Stampin' Up! Supplies.

Hello there,
Today's card is one I made for my eldest son's girlfriends birthday last week :-)
I wanted to make something a bit wow and that could be kept if she wanted to and this is what I came up with....
 I used some of the new iridescent sequins which are nice and little, so perfect for accenting these Large Letter and Number of Years Framelits.
 I loved this ombre ribbon* when it included in the accessory kit from the Spring/Summer catalogue so I'm thrilled that you can now purchase a whole reel!
*Also available in Lemon Lime Twist and Island Indigo
 Look how perfect those sequins blend whilst adding sparkle!
 Inside I used this sentiment from the new Happiest of Days stamp set (only £16.00 in clear!!)
To make this watercoloured rainbow I taped a piece of watercolour paper 21cm wide x 8cm high to spare card. Spritz with water then painted with each colour ink, overlapping the colours slightly.
I did use a lot of ink pads for this card to make the rainbow. If you don't have quite so many ink pads you could also use re-inkers or even just use less colours and make wider bands of colour, overlapping more.
In order, I used: Pool Party, Mint Macaron (retired, you could use Pear Pizzazz instead), So Saffron, Peekaboo Peach, Pink Pirouette, Sweet Sugarplum and Berry Burst!
TIP: On this height of paper you can easily stagger the letters (and numbers) to make sure you get the best blended colours for your card.
 Finally, I went over each letter using the ever useful clear Wink of Stella!
I was really please with this card, I hope you have enjoyed it too?

Number Of Years and Barnyard Babies for a First Birthday Card!

Hello there,
 Today is our lovely grandson, Jackson's first birthday! And today's card is the one I made for him :-)
I was super organised with making this card and consequently one of the stamp sets; Barnyard Babies is now retired :-( Hopefully you have this fun set but if not you should check out the very adorable "A Little Wild*" set! My set of this is here now so I'll be sharing some makes with that soon too ;-)
*available as a bundle
So, let's take a closer look at this card, shall we?
 I love how the stitched circles just add a little something extra to the layers.
Number of Years is a favourite of many, for very good reason.
TIP: As this is a photopolymer stamp set you can bend the "Look Who's Turning" sentiment to fit a smaller circle, like I did here!
 I added the images with dimensionals.
 And one final photo to finish today.
Right, this post has taken about 3 hours longer to finish than it should have as my computer wanted to update and then I couldn't log in, blah de blah! What a wind up! lol. So now I'm super behind and still need to make a million things! I hope you enjoyed todays card and get a chance to be creative yourself today!

Saints Football Shaker Card for a Teenage Boy

Hi there,
Today's card is one I made for my friends football mad son recent birthday! I use this (retired) football (soccer) set just about every year for his card and this year I went with a shaker card...
 I added some stamped footballs and mini sequin stars to the shaker part
TIP: When using stamped images in a shaker card add a dimensional to the back of a couple of footballs (in this case) and two layered dimensionals to the rear of another couple of images so they don't all stick and stack up together in the shaker!
 I used "Work Of Art" to make the "saints" stripes by heat embossing them in white.
Inside the card had a little decoration too.
 And one last look for today :-)
I still love a shaker card, don't you?
Thanks for looking today,
