This is another Pony Party card I made last year for one of my daughter’s friends.
For this card, I used the cardstock Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Concord Crush and Whisper White. This time I sponged the background sky in Concord Crush and the grass in Pear Pizzazz, but I cut out the pony after I had coloured her in with my marker pens and ink pads. Isn’t this the cutest eva pony?
The Pink Pirouette cardstock was rolled through my Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. I stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments in Regal Rose ink and sponged with Concord Crush – a few Rhinestones under the sentiment, layered over cardstock punched using my Scallop Oval punch and Large Oval punch, and the sentiment was done!
This is a card I made last year for one of my daughter’s friends. Ponies are simply too popular to ignore for 6 year old girls, lol!
For this card I used the colours Concord Crush and Blushing Bride – I really love these new In Colors! I did my usual – I masked the pony and sponging a background on which I then stamped the butterflies, grass and flowers. For the sky, I sponged the colour Bashful Blue and the grass with Pear Pizzazz. I used my blender pens to colour in the pony from my ink pads and I stamped the sentiment using White Craft ink. This gorgeous pony card was then finished off with three rhinestone brads in the top left hand corner.
Have you noticed I love this stamp set? lol! Well, at least I know the little girls who I make these cards for love it!! This one was for another school friend of my daughter’s 🙂
I’ve used the cardstock Elegant Eggplant and Pretty in Pink. Plus the inks White Craft, Black Staz On, Elegant Eggplant, Pacific Point, Pink Pirouette and Certainly Celery. I wheeled the standard Dreams wheel in White Craft over the Elegant Eggplant cardstock (love the white on Eggplant!) and then I sponged on the pony’s background using the Pacific Point, Pink Pirouette and Certainly Celery. I stamped the pony in Black Staz On and then cut out her out and coloured her in using my blender pens and ink pads. A touch of two-way glue and Dazzling Diamonds sparkled her up!
The butterfly was made by using the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and then the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die – a little bit of two-way glue, a touch of Dazzling Diamonds and a little bling and away she flies!
And a close up of the sentiment, using the Oval and Scallop Oval punch with some non-SU bling.
On the weekend my daughter was invited to a school friend’s birthday party. My Bella met birthday-girl Bella by chance at a local park before they even started school, so it’s lovely for Bella to be invited to Bella’s 6th birthday! This is the card I made for her:
It’s hard to believe no one will be able to buy Perfect Plum from Stampin’ Up! anymore after the end of this month (if not sooner!). And I’d forgotten how lovely a colour it is. For this card I used Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and Certainly Celery (and some retired Certainly Celery DSP).
Although we’ll have no more Perfect Plum come September, SNEEK PEEK we will have this gorgeous butterfly – a Big Shot Bigz Die – Beautiful Butterflies. I sponged the edge of the butterfly with Perfect Plum ink and edged it with Dazzling Diamonds. A few pearls finished it off.
I think I love this pony as much as my daughter! There are so many variations to make with her that I must keep making more cards to try more combinations! For this pony, I stamped in Basic Black ink and the used my blender pens to colour in the main and tail with Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and Certainly Celery inks. I then cut the pony out and stuck her on a sponged background (Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery) with dimensionals.
The sentiment is also from Pony Party and I stamped it in Perfect Plum and punched it out using the Word Window punch. I punched out a piece of Pale Plum cardstock with the Large Oval punch and sponged the edges with Perfect Plum ink. Then I punched out a piece of Perfect Plum cardstock and layered them together. Three pearls finished off the sentiment.
I really loved how this card turned out. I based it off a card I’d made earlier here, but I really love this colour combination! If you love it too, please email me asap to order your Perfect Plum before it’s gone forever!!
This is another card made with Pony Party and its complementary wheel, Dreams. I’ve made this ready-to-go for one of my daughter’s school friends, just so I can avoid my usual making a card at the last minute! Do you prepare ahead or are you a last minute stamper?
I used the colours Rich Razzleberry and Pink Pirouette for this card. I stamped the pony in Rich Razzleberry and then used a blender pen with the Pink Pirouette ink pad to colour in the pony (and the same for the pony’s mane, tail and hooves in Rich Razzleberry). I stamped the grass with Old Olive and I wheeled Dreams in Pink Pirouette on Pink Pirouette paper for a subtle tone on tone effect and background.
And for a touch of magic – some white chunky sprinkles are stuck to the pony’s wings using Tombow glue.
I’ve used the Scallop Oval punch and layered over it the large oval punch with the sentiment stamped in Rich Razzleberry. The ribbon is the finishing touch!
Wow! I can’t believe I haven’t blogged since Convention – sorry!! I admit, I’ve been exploring the land of Ballivor (where the novel I’m writing is set) and the politics have hit a hiccup (much like Aussie politics at the moment, yeah?) so I’ve tucked my novel away for a little while as the pot needs to simmer. In the meantime, I’m making again!
If you have a little girl, you’re a stamper, and you haven’t already bought Pony Party, then I hope this card inspires you to purchase it! Because little girls LOVE Pony Party!! Well, at least my daughter does, lol!! And this is a super idea.
This card was inspired from a Convention swap – you can see Lisa Jansen’s original card here (look for her entry on 21 May 2010). I really admire Lisa’s clever idea (thanks, Lisa!), so I had to make it and share it. I made this card last week for my lovely friend’s daughter – Madison. Happy birthday, Madison!
I started with a base colour of Pretty in Pink, and I’ve also used Melon Mambo, Kiwi Kiss and Elegant Eggplant. I stamped the first easel with the pony in Staz On black ink – and I’ve stamped it three times (see below), so that Madison can colour the card as she likes.
And on the inside of the card, I made a little box to slip in the crayons Madison can use to colour in her ponies.
And the card is finished off with some Pretty In Pink tafetta ribbon. I hope you like it!
This is a card I made for the happiest little 1 year old I know 🙂 Happy birthday, Elise 🙂
I made it using the new stamp set, Pony Party (available in the Autumn/Winter mini here).
I sponged the background with Bashful Blue and the grass with Certainly Celery, using the cute little stamps on the cute backgroud – pink butterflies in the sky and stems and flowers in the grass. The adorable party pony I’ve cut out was stamped in Staz On black, with a cute party hat and two sparkling wings. I’ve coloured the pony in with Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery. I’m afraid I can’t remember the name of the Certainly Celery DSP, but it is retired.
I love these colours together – Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink.
I’ve stamped the “1” using Best Friends Numbers (retired) and punched it out and layered it with a butterfly (cut with the Big Shot, but a die unavailable in Australia) and Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware. A couple of pink rhinestone brads and Dazzling Diamonds finish it off!
