This is a card I made for a recent stamp-a-stack for a lovely lady who wanted to share stamping on her birthday – what a simply wonderful idea! Don’t you agree?
This is the other card that was inspired by one of my favourite cards here. I began with the colours Very Vanilla, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake and Certainly Celery. We used the Scallop Trim border punch with a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock, which was layered with another strip of Certainly Celery DSP (from the Subtles DSP Paper Stack). We stamped the sentiment from Bring on the Cake on the Very Vanilla cardstock and sponged the edges.
For the flowers, we used Silhouette Sentiments with the Blushing Bride and Certainly Celery marker pens. The background of the flower circle was stamped in Crumb Cake with a “stamped off” stamp from the retired SAB stamp set, Bliss. For the border around the flower circle, we punched the Fancy Flower punch with Crumb Cake and Certainly Celery cardstock. A row of paper piercing finished off the card.
There are lots of these cute boxes floating around the net, but this is the first one I’ve made. And I made quite a few because they were one of my free gifts for my guests to my Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue launch, a couple went to my daughter’s school as gifts for the Mother’s Day stall, and one was a gift to my cousin for hosting a stamp-a-stack.
I made the box using Melon Mambo cardstock, which was embossed using the Big Shot with Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and then cut out with the Top Note Die. The sentiment comes from Teeny Tiny Sentiments and was stamped in Melon Mambo. I punched a large oval from the leftover of the polka dot Melon Mambo cardstock and layered it onto Pink Pirouette textured cardstock, punched from the Scallop Oval punch. I finished off the box with a pink rhinestone brad and Pink Pirouette grosgrain ribbon.
This is another great idea for a simple birthday card for a stamp-a-stack, using the stamp set Crazy for Cupcakes.
I love this colour combo – I’ve used it before! These colours are yummy together – Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Regal Rose and Lovely Lilac. We stamped the cupcake stand in Staz On Black and then coloured it in using marker pens and/or blender pens and ink pads. A touch of Dazzling Diamonds finishes off the card.
These are some of the designs I used for the Christmas stamp-a-stacks I ran for customers/friends last year.
This one is one of my personal favourites and was inspired by Nancy Littrell on SCS here. It was made using the masking technique, sponging using the colours Pacific Point and Pink Pirouette. The stamp sets are Lovely as a Tree and Many Merry Messages.
These two were inspired by Albongo on SCS here, using the stamp set Pocket Silhouettes, plus Best Yet and Short & Sweet. Again, these cards used the masking technique. And the colours are Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss and Real Red. Plus, you can’t have a Christmas card without lots of Dazzling Diamonds!
The next one is a subtle colour combo, using Sahara Sand and Bashful Blue. The stamp set is Season of Joy – so versatile!
The last card uses the colours Pacific Point, Baja Breeze and Real Red which was inspired by the incredibly talented Jenny at Stamping Moments here. The stamp sets are Tree Trimmings, Spotlight on Christmas for the swirl on Whisper White and Season of Joy for the greeting.
These are the cards I designed for my last Stamp-a-Stack. One of the ladies coming along wanted to make a wedding card, so I tailored the SAS around Tempting Turquoise and Basic Grey. I thought the Tempting Turquoise lended a real “Tiffany’s” feel to the card … what do you think?
And the second card was designed for boys 🙂 And, so, you can see how a simple layout and colour scheme can be used for two entirely different cards.
The stamp sets I used for the wedding card were Fun & Fast Notes, Together Forever and Sincere Salutations. Although you can’t see the Sincere Salutations, it was an option for anyone who wanted to make another type of card with Fun & Fast Notes and Sincere Salutations.
The boy’s card used the stamp sets Choo Choo (available in the Spring Mini), Short & Sweet and Fun & Fast Notes.
Here is the same card from my Stamp-a-Stack here, except this card is stepped up! Instead of using the Eyelet Border Punch I’ve added the Pink Pirouette coordinating grosgrain ribbon and some bling. What do you think? Do you like the additional accessories? Do you step it up on your own cards?
